The College Scorecard was born of an Education Department effort to hold underperforming institutions accountable. But it would be a stretch, Katzman said, to credit Google for promoting accountability by surfacing the Scorecard data. For-profit colleges with underwhelming graduation rates and student-debt levels have been “some of Google’s largest advertisers” over the years, he said. “If Google really wanted to help solve the problem, they might limit advertising to the schools that had a better performance on the report card.”

Because Lee Credit Now works with a broad array of lenders with the goal of getting you a great low rate on your auto financing. If you have good credit, that's great: we have excellent relationships with many lenders and will shop for financing for you. If you already have financing, no problem: we have a huge selection of used cars and trucks at low prices, and we have the finest sales consultants in Maine, whose goal is to find you a used car that you'll love. Our salespeople treat all of their customers the way they would like to be treated. That's why we have so many customers who return to us even after their credit problems have been resolved: they know we excel at finding the right car at the right price and with a financing package tailored to their needs.


In addition to selling a full line of used cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs, Lee Credit Now is also a 'Buy Here Pay Here' dealer. That means we are able to provide financing to customers with bad credit who can't get financing through traditional lenders. Customers buy the car from us and make regular payments, and that activity is reported to the credit bureau. To start, just apply online and our professional sales staff will do the rest.
'''jeannot52:''' SweetIM is a totally different, but seemingly as invasive, pest. You can "Google" it to get information. Removal of "Default Tab" is the key in ridding your system of the culprit that installs the "Search here" tab as posted by the OP, '''''bd67807'''''. Be careful when downloading and installing applications/add-ons from the internet as some include such extra items. Most, but not all, will give the user an opportunity during installation to un-check items to not install or to not change search engines. The add-ons on the Firefox/Mozilla add-ons site are fairly clean from this kind of pest. *https://addons.mozilla.org/
For real I can't see alternative for Google. If you are smart enough you can use Google without giving them too much data about yourself. Just use incognito mode in chrome, change applications permissions at your phone, etc. Use it smart. Of course you can't hide all informations about yourself but you don't need to login as Adam Smith, use nickname, turn off GPS if it's not necessary.

who else do you use to search with? the only other contender is Bing which is in second place as far as search engines who host data... so using bing is the same as using google. except whose servers have been hacked and whose haven't... oh yeah Microsoft has been hacked and google cloud still has yet to be hacked. Their gmail on the other hand.. well tough luck on that one because that gets hacked as much as microsoft and yahoo so you're on even ground there.

"Political targeting" is the biggie. Because if their enslavement-apparatus is actually used for this nefarious end, how can any potential revolution be organised when no-one has privacy any more? Never going to happen? Think about it: why wouldn't 'they' enslave us, if they can stop you revolting, through knowing your every move before you do, due to years of spying on you? Unprecedented in human history, is this level of power. Think!

It is a brand that is flexible and powerful because it is widely applicable and able to exude all facets of Ohio beyond tourism, to include economic development, natural resources, Ohio’s workforce and much more. The brand statement was tested against competitor statements and consumers overwhelmingly found it to be more appealing than brand statements used by neighboring states.

Wolfram Alpha isn’t the only Google alternative with a technical or specific focus. For instance, CC Search scans through Creative Commons-licensed media. Pipl is a powerful (and somewhat terrifying) people search engine. It tracks down user names, real names, social media accounts and more. Onion.link lets you search the dark web from your regular browser instead of having to install the privacy-focused Tor browser.

Google should offer a way to disconnect anyone from it's sucking data pipe, on request. There might be times someone's is ill, ending a relationship, involved in delicate research, or simply feels no one should be tracking them at all right now. Maybe you've the right to disconnect from Google for a week or month. Then the tracking begins automatically. Better than nothing.
The thing is not using Google search doesn't mean your privacy is take back, it just means now you have given it to some other search engine. Really, even if you don't use a search engine you still don't have any privacy. Cameras are everywhere and you buy things in stores, online etc your info is in apps, the government owns you... Everyone owns you to some degree. So you and everyone trying to make Google out as the sore evil above everyone else isn't factual.

Adding an extra layer of two-facedness to life is a step backwards, not forwards, IMHO. Speaking from experience of what it is like to be watched constantly (in a given context, community etc, pre-internet) and the damage done to one's humanity is SEVERE. Or some derivation of 'severe'. This is the thing: depending on how conformist one is [born to be]. Hence why scared, overly-conformist people who think this makes them safe, think that no harm can be done by being watched all the time. They value conformity and don't realise that taking that too far makes humans into robots and creates fascism etc.
The answer for me is a resoundingly definitive NO! And I don't want to. I am deeply hooked into the Google ecosystem from Chrome OS and Android to Chromecast and a huge collection of their services. And I must admit I thoroughly enjoy having access to and using them even with the knowledge that Google uses them to collect a lot of data about me. That said, I feel that Google really does do a good job of letting me know when and how it is collecting my data as well as how they use it. Do I trust them 100%? No. There are certain things that I do take precautions to protect, be it encrypting certain documents I store in the cloud, using a vpn and incognito mode when appropriate, as well as using services, apps, and backups from other providers. In the end though, when all is said and done, I cannot think of one single thing that Google has done to harm me in any tangible way.
Putting information on finance and outcomes in context is more relevant than simply listing that information, he said. And students already have more interesting places to go for that context, he added, such as College Confidential, where they can see what students are saying about a college, or Niche, where they can view rankings and read deep write-ups, or U.S. News, where they can browse the most widely recognized rankings.
this kind of article is funny. its a trade your privacy for convenient life world now. if you really care of privacy, you have already exposed your ip address to this website, your name to your reader, your billing address to your isp, your personal informtion to your credit card company. google just know as much as they know and more. and if i have to trade my privacy anyway, whynot choose one big company which protect your privacy data better and give you better service? instead of chose some small company and trust they not save your info....forever?

Let us paint a picture for you. Imagine you are grocery shopping, and you have a number of items in your basket. You have completed your shopping, and you head up to the cashier to pay for your items. The cashier scans the groceries, pleasantries are exchanged, but then she tells you that you need to go to a store down the street to pay for the items. You are bewildered. You found the items here, so why can’t you pay for them here? Why do you have to go through a middleman in order to complete the transaction? With many other dealerships, banks need to be involved to work out the financing situation, and payments would then be made to the bank. At Carizma Motors, a buy here pay here dealership in Lubbock TX, that is not the case.
