CHICAGO -- Granola bar sales are booming, especially in Los Angeles. Lay's rules the potato chip market but not in Philadelphia or Baltimore. And Oreos are the top-selling cookie, period.

You won't see him checking your ID at Kilroy's for extra cash. You won't see him working for wages at the checkout counter at Target. In fact, you might not see Roger Teska much at all.
That's because the junior biology major pays his tuition by putting in long hours in front of his computer screen. Teska and others like him have a very profitable knack for online gambling.
"Professional card players today can't afford not to play online because there's so much easy money," Teska said.

Wireless Internet technology not only helped three 2005 graduates get through four years of assignments at IU, it also sparked an entrepreneurial venture for them after graduation when they discovered a niche in the wireless Internet market few companies were exploiting.
Traditional wireless companies in the Lafayette area were feeding cable and digital subscriber line technology through phone lines, but alumni Kelly Cantwell, Colin Meadows and Eric Steele knew there was a better way: providing wireless Internet through airways. This month, ForePoint Networks, the venture started by the trio in the Lafayette area, is celebrating seven months of doing just that, and of staying alive in a very competitive industry.
NEW ORLEANS -- To help boost its stalled economy, hurricane-ravaged New Orleans is offering the nation's first free wireless Internet network owned and run by a major city.

Senior Brittany Ivy was worried about how she was going to pay for college at IU.
"My parents hadn't set aside any money to pay for college so I had to decide on my own how I was going to pay for it," she said.
