Hind was among hundreds of thousands of Poles who seized the opportunity when the EU expanded into Eastern Europe in 2004 to move to Britain, regarded as a welcoming country with a flexible labor market and relatively high wages.
After the June 23 vote, Hind says he received text messages that said things like, “What time is my bus back home, have I got my passport and good luck in Poland.”
Free movement among member states is a key principle of the EU, and millions of Europeans have become used to studying, working or retiring abroad.
Britain’s vote to quit the bloc — after a “leave” campaign that urged people to “take back control” — is in part a renunciation of that borderless ideal.
The News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/2e1ydgL ) reports that students who apply to the university by Nov. 1 will qualify for "early action," in which applicants will know by Dec. 16 whether they're admitted, denied or deferred for consideration until Feb. 3.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.16 per gallon, down by less than a penny from last week.

Amazon wants you to order your turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce online this Thanksgiving — its latest effort to make its Prime subscription service a central part of food shopping, much the way it's done for other consumer goods.
"Grocery is a massive market opportunity for them," said R. W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian.
Amazon started its grocery delivery business around its home town of Seattle, and has since expanded to about 18 cities and regions, including London and New York.
Amazon has been continuously adding services to its Prime loyalty program, which offers free two-day shipping on many items and boasts an estimated 65 million members (Amazon does not disclose the figure).
Adding services like grocery delivery and original video programming costs money, but Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos says it's worth it because Prime members spend more at Amazon.
