For-Profit Colleges, Endeavour: Hot Trends

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "For-Profit Colleges" is trending on the Internet Wednesday before the Senate Education Committee holds a hearing June 7 on federal funds used by for-profit colleges.

Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, lwill lead the hearing and has said that for-profit colleges are more focused on their own success than the success of enrolled students.

Senate Republicans have threatened to boycott a measure that the Department of Education could release that restricts federal aid to for-profit colleges with high rates of students who fail to repay their loans.

These colleges -- which are often regarded as "career colleges" -- enroll students who are unlikely to attend traditional college and are unlikely to fulfill loan promises because they are older, poorer and less educated, critics say.

"Endeavour" is trending on the Internet after NASA's space shuttle returned to Earth.

The landing marks the end of the shuttle's 25th and final flight to Earth's orbit.

The commander of the final flight was Mark Kelly, who is well-known as the husband of U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the target of an attempted assassination earlier this year in Tucson, Ariz.

Endeavour was the second-to-last mission in the space shuttle program. Atlantis will launch on July 8 marking the final journey.

"Marilyn Monroe" is a hot search term Wednesday on news that a photographer has revealed rare picture negatives snapped of Monroe around 1950 near Hollywood Hills.

The man who owns the photos found them 30 years ago and recently thought to have them appraised after he watched an episode of the reality show "Pawn Stars."

Monroe was best known for her appearances in Some Like It Hot and The Seven Year Itch, which was iconic for a scene in which Monroe stood in a white dress on top of a windy subway grate.

Wednesday marks her would-be 85th birthday. The actress died in 1962.

"Medal of Honor" is a trending search term on Wednesday. President Barack Obama is expected to award the medal to Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry, only the second living, active-duty service member to receive the decoration for his actions in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars.
