    But finding work -- especially a dream job -- remains tough for those just graduating. Many are settling for jobs outside their fields of study or for less pay than they'd expected or hoped for.

    NYPD Twitter hashtag backfires

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.

For the moment, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is still welcome in his 11th-floor City Hall office, despite a burgeoning recall movement against him after more than a dozen women came forward to allege sexual harassment, either through unwanted advances or inappropriate statements. 

However, the 70-year-old former Congressman is very much unwelcome in Hooters. 

Four San Diego-area branches of the national chain best known for having waitresses wear tank tops and tight orange shorts have posted signs saying that they would not serve Filner. 

"This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people from all walks of life," the signs read. "We also believe it is imperative for people to have standards. The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment. We believe women should be treated with respect."

Fox5SanDiego.com reported that the signs were available for download from the website of national TV and radio personality Glenn Beck, formerly of Fox News. 

Melissa Fry, the marketing director for Hootwinc, which operates Hooters franchises on the West Coast, said the embattled mayor is also banned from Hooters locations in the nearby towns of Mission Valley, Oceanside and Rancho Bernardo.

Filner has not been seen publicly since entering a two-week therapy session. His representatives have said that the mayor would not be available for public comment this week while he receives outpatient care.
