What are some tips about dealing with life after college?
Not sure if you were referring to David's advice, mine or both, but I really think people should be educated about these sorts of enterprises. With enough capital, people can make a change in their communities. Perhaps as a suggestion you could adapt your own motivational t-shirt company to that model. That way you don't just help people on their morale, but also help your fellow students that you mentor with a purpose. If you can have a screening session with the students, I'd definitely recommend Richard's talks. He explains in some of his talks (not all) how the worker-owned enterprises function, and a few of their traits. He also talks about the current economical state of US, but those bits can be easily trimmed out if they are of no interest.

Signing the evolutionary petition for Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) for Adults for emancipatory welfare UK, abolishing benefit systems
Agreed, funny thing is I'm also from a supposed "3rd-world country". That notion is only meant to divide people. I intended to move to the UK once but I gave up on the thought, considering another country. Romania (where I'm from) until this year had restrictions for emigration to UK. What's staggering is that the whole parliament decided to scapegoat this group of people (immigrants) for their problems and the lack of care people get. I just wish more people would sign this petition... This way I wouldn't be forced to relocate (even though I intend to do it anyway, I want to live in a different society than the one I'm into) and people would actually be able to do what they really wish to do, in turn maximising satisfaction in all the possible aspects and raise the standard of living and mental health of many. According to this: https://ec.europa.eu/citizens-initiative/REQ-ECI-2012-000028/public/map.do, in the 3 days left for the petitions, about 780.000 more are needed and 4 more countries need to pass their threshold levels. So in other words I doubt the proposition is going to pass this time, but I'm sure that it will come up again, we just have to keep looking. Also some other countries outside EU are getting interested in this idea, which I think it's always a good thing. People aren't naturally lazy, just disinterested and dispirited, all it comes from being forced into doing things they don't like. People always want to contribute stuff, even if it's not for a community or for humanity as a whole, there are always activities to be taken.

What are some tips about dealing with life after college?
Agreed, lovely discussion. People need to find their way through their lives in the current situation and the current way society works. But with your example, why shouldn't they work together, to compensate for each other's misses? I think larger progress and happiness/satisfaction can be achieved when people work together rather than divide them into who's more successful and who's likely to succeed. People don't work that way. Also to alleviate any doubts, I wasn't trying to say your suggestion alludes to "sucking up" to people, as you previously stated it's not about that. I was pointing out that perhaps the insight you provided might not be appropriate in this case. Still I agree with you, any skill that one possesses is a plus to starting any activity.

Vaccines in G.M.O food and Animals
Not sure what the said vaccine would achieve, or what sort of effect it will have on the environment. If it doesn't interfere, it would surely help the less fortunate in poor countries, but still won't solve the problem of malnourishment.
