I was in the middle of completing an application for a teaching job at https://www.breakthroughcollaborative.or… when the web page expired, and when I refreshed I had to re-login. However, when I tried logging back in again I couldn't: whenever I enter my login information and press the login button, a pop-up appears that says 'Please access this page using https.' What does this mean, and what should I do so I can log in again? Please help!

Try using the sites 'ordinary' URL first http://www.breakthroughcollaborative.org/ and then try the secure (https) link on the page or type it in full in your browser and see if it works; https://breakthroughcollaborative.org/teach/apply Your browser will have stored the old https page so you should empty your browsers cache to ensure you clear all traces of your earlier attempt.

'Secure' https connections are intended to prevent any of the information you input from being intercepted by third parties, particularly important in a case like this where you will, if you proceed, probably be supplying detailed personal and financial information.
