- Your Next Gen Ken doll could be sporting a man bun or a dad bod. According to a Mattel news release, "Barbie expanded its Fashionistas line on Tuesday with 15 new and diverse Ken dolls, featuring three body types – slim, broad, and original – and a variety of skin tones, eye colors, hairstyles, and modern fashion looks." The hope is that Ken and Barbie will be more relatable to today's children. For a laugh see how man bun Ken is being trolled on Twitter.

"NESCom prepared me for my career by taking me out of the classroom and into the community to strengthen my skills. The opportunity to work with real clients on real projects gave me the chance to apply everything I had learned to help local businesses and organizations. My classmates and I were no longer learning about real life situations-we were practicing them. This is a valuable experience every student should be fortunate enough to have."
