  1. Smiling is one of the best things in life you can do for yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re happy or not, a smile can go a long way in different situations. Smiling is contagious. A smile can brighten your day, lift your mood, and even change your outlook on life. Smile, It's good for you!
  2. Online degrees teach higher level thinking, critical thinking, and problem solving skills that employers value Online degrees are going to be the way of the future. According to a recent study, the number of online learners in the U.S. is expected to increase by 45% by 2020, which means more and more people will be getting their education online. Online degrees teach higher level thinking, critical thinking, and problem solving skills that employers value. If you go to school, you want to see results. A degree that you don’t get or don’t see the results from ultimately leads to a career that is not really a career, is not going to have the same meaning for you. Education should be something that provides you with skills that you can apply in any field or career that you think you could benefit from. The goal shouldn’t be to create something from your degree that’s going to amount to something. The goal should be to take those skills that you’ve learned and apply them to a new skill or project that you’ve started. To find the best online programs for your major, look for programs with: You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars or sign up for a program that will take forever to pay off. Online degree programs can analyze your high school transcripts, your GPAs, and help you reach an acceptance rate of about 70%. Ultimately, it comes down to your personal choice and investment in the right online degree. You can invest a lot of money and time into a degree that may not result in a great job. That’s not the point of going to school. Your degree can set you up for the future, provided that it is built with the skills, knowledge, and abilities you’ve learned.
  3. Online degrees provide flexibility and convenience for students with other obligations Online degrees are convenient because they can be accessed from anywhere at any time. Online students can complete assignments and take exams whenever they want, and they don’t have to worry about getting to campus for certain courses. They also provide flexibility for students with other obligations, like families or full-time jobs. One of the benefits, however, of an online degree is that you must complete it before you can look for a permanent job. For degrees that are officially recognized by the jobs you want (or using degree equivalency programs, like certificates), the process of getting your diploma (or either document) may require a trip to the campus job office. For online degrees that require working through specific exercises, like several asynchronous semesters of a class, using the program’s career center can be helpful. You may also need to provide a portfolio to demonstrate your work experience. Once you have your degree, you still must earn the college’s university seal of approval (an achievement that requires a letter from your dean of undergraduate studies explaining why you earned the degree) to see if you can get a job in which you will use the degree.
  4. Online degrees are a good way to gain life experience and skills without actually working Online degrees are a great way to gain skills and knowledge without having to leave your home. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a new skill or gain more experience in something but don’t have the time or money to go back to school, online degrees are a great option. It might be challenging to get all of your school work done in one place, especially if you’re in high school or college. To help you take your schoolwork with you when you go to college, check out the following nine online degree programs that offer on-demand access. This degree from the University of Waterloo is a digital certificate program with dozens of courses available for free and many more offered for a nominal cost. The goal of the degree is not to earn a college degree but to teach students how to design, implement, and manage software for enterprise and corporate environments. Ford permits students to continue their studies after accepting the degree as a certificate to pursue new professional licensing, if desired. One of the world’s leading providers of trade and manufacturing certificates, Addistech is dedicated to developing digital certificates that prepare people for careers in the information technology industry and enhance their business skills. This online program is part of the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program, which is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to enter the global workforce. The options for this program are quite limited, but you can start with one or two elective options. It’s also highly recommended that you begin this program with proficiency in Adobe Photoshop or QuickTime so that you have a foundation for the software you will be learning. Chess is an extremely popular game played around the world in more than 100 languages. The University of Waterloo offers chess certificates for people who are looking to join the international chess Hall of Fame, or people who want to teach others how to play. No experience necessary.
  5. You can get a job with an online degree if you have the right education Education is one of the most important aspects in career development. When you have the right education and the right skills, you can get a job with an online degree. A lot of people assume that online degrees aren’t as credible as traditional degrees but that’s actually not true.Since I started working in the virtual classroom industry, I’ve learned a lot about how to make online learning work for people. Just because someone has an online degree, that doesn't mean they’re good at teaching. You need to develop an online reputation first before you can even consider teaching online. An online reputation gives you the opportunity to create your teaching portfolio before you start teaching. So, before you can pick up a teaching position, you need to first start building up an online teaching portfolio. You’re going to need to create lesson plans, assignments, evaluations, reports, and one or two performance reviews before you can even consider teaching. Video tutorials can provide flexibility but they are by no means a substitute for good old PowerPoint. There are so many online textbooks, video blogs, online programs, podcasts, and other educational resources available today. If someone has an online certificate in their field, it’s unlikely that they have an online teaching experience. There are basic requirements, such as teaching experience in an education program or classroom experience, but unless those are in your direct field of expertise, you should steer clear of certificate mills. Sure, people have done bad things in the past, but online experience alone is not a guarantee against mistreatment and unethical practices. If you find online education is the right option for you, by all means, consider creating a teaching portfolio to highlight your online teaching experience. Many employers are willing to look past a poorly developed online teaching portfolio if you have a good portfolio of work.
  6. What is an online degree? Online degrees are degrees you can get via the internet. If you do a search for online degrees, you'll find a bunch of websites offering degrees in a variety of areas including business, computer science, education, criminal justice, and nursing. In many cases, when you graduate from school, you’ll still need a job. But with the advent of online degrees, the job market has certainly changed. An article published in 2020 by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (US Bureau) found that the unemployment rate for the class of 2018 was 5.4% for those who enrolled in an online course in the prior year. If you fail to qualify for unemployment benefits, the average time to unemployment payback was 6.4 months. So you have a few options. Many people who graduate from university, and especially business programs, are given a degree that may make them stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s an online certificate, bachelor degree, master degree, or a doctorate, most people don’t just get a degree and expect to land a job straight away. You have to understand the language or a topic you’re studying to qualify for a job. This is true even if you’re studying something completely unrelated to your major. Many graduate students at business programs have learned how to defend their research from professors. Back when I studied accounting, my professor would force students to come up with creative ways to show that their models accurately predicted revenue, expense, and return. Afterward, I must have spent an inordinate amount of time going over my syllabus and preparing slides and arguments to support my professor’s theory. This is exactly the skill you’ll need if you’re going to maintain your credibility when you present your work to your future employer.
  7. Today, education is more accessible than ever before. The internet provides instant access to a wealth of information. This evolution has allowed many people to pursue careers in fields they may not have thought possible before the internet was invented. Can you get a job with an online degree? It depends on where you live and what your degree is in, but the answer is mostly yes.
  8. According to one coffee legend, ancestors of today's Oromo people in a region of Kaffa in Ethiopia were the first to recognize the energizing effect of the coffee plant. However, no direct evidence that has been found earlier than the 15th century indicating who among the African populations used it as a stimulant, or where coffee was first cultivated. The story of Kaldi, the 9th-century Ethiopian goatherd who discovered coffee when he noticed how excited his goats became after eating the beans from a coffee plant, did not appear in writing until 1671 and is probably apocryphal. Another legend attributes the discovery of coffee to a Sheikh Omar. According to an old chronicle (preserved in the Abd-Al-Kadir manuscript), Omar, who was known for his ability to cure the sick through prayer, was once exiled from Mocha in Yemen to a desert cave near Ousab (modern-day Wusab, about 90 kilometres (56 mi) east of Zabid). Starving, Omar chewed berries from nearby shrubbery but found them to be too bitter. He tried roasting the seeds to improve the flavor, but they became hard. He then tried boiling them to soften the seed, which resulted in a fragrant brown liquid. Upon drinking the liquid Omar was revitalized and sustained for days. As stories of this "miracle drug" reached Mocha, Omar was asked to return and was made a saint.

  10. To qualify for a reverse mortgage, your home must have an equity of at least five years of homeownership. Holding a loan with a closing balance of at least five years of homeownership is a requirement for someone to qualify for a reverse mortgage loan. The balance can vary over time, even between loans granted on the same property. In some cases, you might need to sell the property before the equity can be increased, or the balance can increase because you purchased the home at a high-sale price. Your home must also be your principal residence and not an investment property used for rental purposes. You cannot have a history of liens on your home or multiple properties that you are thinking about selling or moving to. A reverse mortgage essentially involves lending money from a bank to you at a higher rate than you would receive from another person. For each $100,000 of equity that you have, your loan amount can be increased by $5,000. Lender — usually a bank — agrees to make payments to the borrower for a fixed period of time as long as the balance is maintained. The length of contract can vary between 30 and 54 months. Because a reverse mortgage is not a traditional mortgage, there are key points to consider before you decide to use one. The following factors should help determine whether you should pursue a reverse mortgage loan. Reverse mortgage loans typically have a lower amortization period and higher payment limits than monthly mortgage payments. However, when monthly payments start to climb, periodic payments called grace periods, which allow homeowners to pay the remaining balance before interest kicks in. Reverse Mortgage Expert
