    The top engineering schools in the country are hotspots for big-name companies like Google, Apple, and Facebook to recruit fresh, new talent.

    We're asking you to tell us which schools those are.

    Last year you voted that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has the best undergraduate engineering program, but has the answer changed?

    We've assembled a big list of schools from engineers, industry professionals, and entrepreneurs that work at some of the most popular technology companies out there.

    Please take a couple of minutes to answer the questions in the survey below, and soon we'll reveal the list of the best engineering schools in America.

    Most Powerful People 2015

    True power is ageless.

    From the toddling Prince George, third in line to the British throne, to 100-year-old Pulitzer Prize-winning author Herman Wouk, we found the most powerful person at every age from 1 to 100.

    To create this list, we took four criteria into consideration: command, or the degree to which a person formally controls a group of people; past influence, or how much a person has changed the world; future influence, or how much a person is likely to change the world going forward; and net worth.

    Spanning industries and time zones, these are the most powerful people, from 1 to 100.

    AGE 1: Prince George of Cambridge

    Heir to the British throne

    What makes him powerful: After his grandfather and father, little George is next in line to succeed his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. As an eight-month-old he took his first royal tour — a 19-day visit to New Zealand and Australia. He's also a tiny fashion icon, and he recently became a big brother to new princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

    AGE 2: Macallister Bogue

    Son of Marissa Mayer and Zach Bogue

    What makes him powerful: While he's only a couple of years old, Bogue, son of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, still influences his mom's outlook at work. Though Mayer herself only took a few weeks off after giving birth, she doubled the amount of paid maternity leave Yahoo offers new mothers from eight to 16 weeks and offered new dads eight weeks as well.

    AGE 3: Blue Ivy Carter

    Daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z

    What makes her powerful: Nothing is too good for this power couple's little girl. Blue Ivy's second birthday was celebrated at the exotic Jungle Island in Miami; for her third, Blue got an ice sculpture with her name carved into it. Gwyneth Paltrow, who is good friends with the Knowles-Carter clan, said of Blue Ivy: "She is a powerhouse. I love her so much."

    Clear Lake, South DakotaCost of living makes a big difference when choosing where to move — and not all places were created equal. 

    We found the most affordable small town in every state.

    To do this we looked at towns with populations between 1,000 and 10,000 whose households spend no more than 30% of their annual income on housing costs. We looked at the average cost of three types of housing — owned houses with a mortgage, owned houses without a mortgage, and rentals — and took a weighted average of these by the proportion of each type of home in the town.

    Click here to read more about our methodology.

    ALABAMA: Fayetteville

    93% of homes are affordable.

    An hour south of Birmingham, Fayetteville is actually named after a town in Tennessee from which early residents migrated. Employing over 33% of residents, retail is the most popular industry here, followed by manufacturing, which employs 15% of residents. 

    ALASKA: Healy

    91.5% of homes are affordable.

    Only 11 miles from the Denali National Park and Preserve, Healy offers several lodging and dining options for park visitors, creating a strong tourism industry in the town. However, more than tourism, coal mining in nearby Usibelli Coal Mine makes up most of Healy's livelihood. 

    ARIZONA: Quartzsite

    93.2% of homes are affordable.

    Just 18 miles east of the Colorado River, Quartzsite is best known for its beautiful assortment of rocks and minerals— as evidenced by its name. On first glance it might not sound like the most exciting industry, but the town's gem trade entices thousands of visitors per year. There is even a two-month-long gem show that starts in January.

    Today's most sophisticated aircraft are the stuff of science fiction.

    In a few years, drones that can fit in the palm of a person's hand and 117-foot-wingspan behemoths capable of launching satellites into space will both be a reality.

    At the same time, drone and advanced fighter technologies will spread beyond the US and Europe, and countries like China, Russia, and Iran may have highly advanced aerial capabilities.

    Here's our look at the most game-changing aircraft of the past few years — and the next few to come.

    F-35 Lightning II

    The F-35 may cost as much as $1.5 trillion over its entire lifetime. But it's also supposed to be the most fearsome military aircraft ever built, a plane that can dogfight, provide close air support, and carry out bombing runs, all with stealth capabilities, a high degree of maneuverability, and the ability to take off and land on aircraft carriers.

    It hasn't quite worked out that way so far, and problems with everything from the plane's software system to its engines have both delayed its deployment and made its costs spiral upward. And it isn't nearly as effective at close air-support as existing platforms, like the A-10.

    But the US has over 1,700 of them on order. Like it or not, the F-35 will be the US's workhorse warplane for decades to come.

    F-22 Raptor

    The predecessor to Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II is the single-seat, twin-engine F-22 Raptor, currently the most advanced combat-ready jet.

    The US solely operates the world's F-22's thanks to federal law that prohibits the jet from being exported. Lockheed Martin built 195 jets before the last one was delivered to the US Air Force in May of 2012. Despite the program's cost and the jet's advanced features, it saw combat for the first time relatively recently, during the opening phase of the bombing campaign against ISIS.


    Russia's Su-50, also known under the prototype name of the T-50 PAKFA, is the Kremlin's fifth-generation fighter, and its response to the F-35. 

    Although still in prototype, Moscow believes that the Su-50 will ultimately be able to outperform the F-35 on key metrics such as speed and maneuverability. However, the stealth capabilities of the Su-50 are believed to be below that of the F-22 and the F-35. 

    The Kremlin plans on introducing the Su-50 into service by 2016. Once the plane is combat-ready, it will serve as a base model for the construction of further variants intended for export. India is already co-designing an Su-50 variant with Russia, and Iran and South Korea are possible candidates to buy future models of the plane.

    There's no denying that the main reason most people go to law school is to get a job. Attending a law school that offers a strong professional network might be the smartest thing any future JD can do.

    The online graduate school guide polled over 10,000 former and current law school students to find out which US schools offer the best networking opportunities.

    Participants rated their programs on a scale of 1-10 — 10 being the strongest — on the faculty, peer, and alumni networks available to them while they were in school, and after they graduated. The scores were then averaged and ranked to determine the programs with the best networking opportunities. 

    Here are the 25 best law schools for networking:

    mount fujiEven though it's halfway through 2015, there is plenty of time left to book an amazing trip this year. 

    We looked at major developments, cultural trends, and global festivals to find the hottest places to travel around the world in 2015.

    From the Philippines to Peru, here are the best places to travel this year.   

    Japan will continue to be a bargain destination for travelers.

    Tourism in Japan has taken a hit since the 2011 tsunami hit the country's coast and ricocheted into a nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. Since then, the Japanese government has cleaned up the countryside and launched a massive public-relations campaign encouraging tourists to come visit. Pair that with a sharp decline in the value of the Japanese currencyand you get a country that's ripe for tourism.

    Traditionally one of the most expensive countries in the world, Japan is quickly becoming a bargain destination that's luring in travelers looking for a deal.  More than 16 million visitors traveled to Japan last year, with more expected this year. Most tourists are heading to Tokyo, which is also busy preparing for the 2020 summer Olympics, but there are plenty of incredible attractions all over the country.

    Lima, Peru, will maintain its status as the foodie capital of South America.

    Lima, Peru has been slowly building its reputation as a city for foodies, cementing its status most recently when the Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants Awards gave the coveted top spot to the city's Central restaurant. (The restaurant also ranked at No. 4 on the venerable list of the World's Best Restaurants.) In total, eight of 50 restaurants on the prestigious list were in Lima.

    The Peruvian city is home to everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to hole-in-the-wall cevicherias that will continue to draw in foodies from around the world.

    "Frozen" fans will continue to flock to Norway to seek out Elsa and Anna's fictional Arendelle.

    "Frozen" became the highest-grossing animated film of all timeand with its increased merchandising and announcement of a sequel, the "Frozen" craze will only continue to grow. Set in Arendelle, a fictional kingdom in Norway, "Frozen" shows a gorgeous landscape of lakes, waterfalls, mountains, and fjords. Fans of the animated film are now seeking out real-life Arendelle in Norway. The country has seen a huge growth in tourism since the release of the film, with tour operators reporting a 40% increase in sales.

    Bergen, a city on the west coast, was the inspiration for the film. Voss is also popular with fans for its nearby fjords, glaciers, rivers, and lakes. With its small fishing villages and breathtaking cliffs, the Lofoten Islands will also attract Frozen fans.

    The rising cost of education is no joke. A law degree can put its students into serious debt, while finding a job right after graduation often seems unlikely. That's why law school applicants are taking financial aid into account more than ever when they decide which programs to apply to and attend.

    The online graduate school guide polled over 10,000 former and current law school students to find out which US schools offer the best financial aid packages and the smoothest application processes.

    They rated their schools on a scale from 1-10, 10 being the strongest. The scores were then averaged and ranked to determine the top law schools for financial aid.

    South Beach, Miami

    You don't have to go far to sink your feet into some soft white sand or plunge into clear aquamarine waters. Some of the world's best beaches are right here in the US.

    For this list, we looked at seven notable beach rankings compiled by travel experts, vacationers, and water-quality researchers and combined these rankings to come up with the ultimate list of the best beaches in the US.

    The rankings we used were Dr. Beach's Top 10 Beaches for 2015Trip Advisor's 2015 Travelers' Choice Awards Top 25 Beaches in the United States, Travel Channel's Top 10 US Beaches, Forbes' America's Top 10 Beaches of 2014, Men's Journal's The 20 Best Beaches in America, Coastal Living's 21 Best Beaches, and Thrillist's The 25 Best Beaches in America.

    23. Hanalei Bay in Kauai, Hawaii, is the island's largest bay (close to three miles long) and is also home to Hanalei Beach — a 125-feet-wide stretch of pure white sand.

    22. East Hampton, New York’s Main Beach is both pristine and secluded, making it the perfect destination for those seeking luxury without the crowds.

    21. Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park sits on a barrier island on the southwest coast of Florida near Naples. It boasts beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as birdwatching, snorkeling, hiking, and fishing.

    bill gatesThere are two types of billionaires: those who inherited their wealth, and those who built it from nothing.

    Our friends at Wealth-X, a database of information about ultra-high net worth individuals, focused on the latter to compile a list of the wealthiest self-made billionaires in the world.

    From tech mogul Bill Gates to Alibaba founder Jack Ma, here's who made the list. 

    25. Len Blavatnik

    Estimated net worth: $20.1 billion

    Though he's known as one of Britain's richest residents, Blavatnik is a native of Ukraine. He earned degrees at Moscow State University, Columbia, and Harvard Business School before founding Access Industries in 1986 and investing in aluminum and chemical companies. In recent years he began investing in tech, with stakes in Spotify and Beats. Blavatnik also owns Warner Music, which he bought in 2011 for $3.3 billion.

    24. Li Ka-Shing

    Estimated net worth: $20.1 billion

    Ka-Shing is one of the richest men in Asia, but his power far exceeds his wealth. He's known for investing in new, blossoming tech startups and was an early Facebook backer. Recently, the company he chairs, Hutchison Whampoa, bought the UK's second-largest mobile operator, O2. Last year he invested $23 million in plant-based egg-replacement company Hampton Creek through his firm Horizon Ventures.


    23. Patrick Drahi

    Estimated net worth: $21 billion

    The third-richest person in France, Drahi founded Altice, a multinational cable and telecommunications holding company, in 2002. Altice operates throughout France, Belgium, Israel, Portugal, and the Dominican Republic, and garnered international attention for its $1.8 billion IPO in January 2014. Drahi is coming to the US soon, too — he's taking over American cable company Suddenlink.

    New York City is notorious for its high rent prices and competitive housing market. Good location, affordability, and space — anyone who's navigated the delicate process of finding an apartment knows that in most cases, you can't find all three of these qualities for your new home.

    Real estate website Zumper crunched the data from the listings on its site to determine the most expensive and the cheapest neighborhoods to rent in Manhattan and Brooklyn this spring.

    Zumper looked at neighborhoods primarily in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and a couple in Queens. It's worth noting that they didn't look at the Bronx or Staten Island. Already from March to April of this year, Zumper noted an increase in median rent prices across the city.

    These are the most expensive neighborhoods to rent in New York City this spring: 

    1. Tribeca ($4,450)

    2. Chelsea ($3,920)

    3. Greenwich Village ($3,850)

    4. DUMBO ($3,720)

    5. Gramercy Park and the West Village (tied at $3,700)

    6. Battery Park and the Financial District (tied at $3,580)

    7. Soho ($3,500)

    8. Garment District ($3,480)

    9. Upper West Side ($3,400)

    10. Midtown East ($3,330)

    Check out Zumper's infographic below for complete data:


    If staying in Manhattan is important to you, the best bet for affordable housing is in the Lower East Side ($2,450), the Upper East Side ($2,730), and the East Village ($2,800).

    However, all of the top ten most affordable neighborhoods are in Brooklyn: Although rent prices are the lowest here, median rent is still on the rise (for the most part) in Brooklyn, as elsewhere.

    Here are the most affordable neighborhoods to rent in New York City this spring:

    1. Ocean Hill ($1,380)

    2. Maspeth ($1,430)

    3. Canarsie ($1,480)

    4. East Flatbush and Sunset Park (tied at $1,500)

    5. Flatbush ($1,530)

    6. Flatlands ($1,550) 

    7. Borough Park ($1,570)

    8. Kensington ($1,600)

    9. Brownsville ($1,650)

    10. Crown Heights ($1,800)

    RTX1BJR5This year, Stanford University topped our lists as the the best and most selective college in the US. As such, it attracts an extremely talented and intelligent study body.

    The northern California university has educated household names including Yahoo's Marissa Mayer, golf legend Tiger Woods, and US President Herbert Hoover. 

    Surprisingly, many of Stanford's most successful students never actually finished their degrees: 11 of the 30 people to make our list never crossed the podium to receive their diploma, but instead left the university to pursue already promising careers.

    Evan Spiegel, the co-founder and CEO of Snapchat, runs his multi-billion dollar company with a former fraternity brother, Bobby Murphy. Spiegel dropped out of school in 2012, just before receiving his degree, in order to dedicate himself fully to Snapchat. He has turned down multiple buy-out offers for the company.

    Reese Witherspoon began acting at the age of 12 and attended Stanford University for only one year in 1994 before dropping out to pursue her career, which had her flying to Hollywood every weekend while in school.

    Tiger Woods' golf career was already off to an impressive start while he was a student at Stanford University, where he won numerous awards. Woods studied economics for two years, and left the university in 1995 to play golf professionally.

    Churn ice cream, Arizona

    It's almost summer, and summer calls for ice cream.

    With or without toppings, it's the perfect treat to cool down on a hot afternoon.

    Our friends at Foursquare helped us find the best place for ice cream in every state across the US, taking into account Foursquare users' likes, saves, shares, tip sentiment, and more.

    To create this list, Foursquare included the top-rated ice cream shop in each US state.

    ALABAMA: Bruster's Ice Cream in Prattville makes a mean brownie sundae... but you can celebrate the ultimate occasion with an entire ice cream sundae cake, complete with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Just add candles.

    ALASKA: Alaska may not be the first place you think of for ice cream, but Hot Licks, at Chena Pump Plaza in Fairbanks, is the first place Alaskans think of for ice cream. Customers rave about the pumpkin ice cream, and say that you can't tell the difference between regular and sugar-free flavors.
