Demand for MBAs Continue to Rise

Despite the recent turmoil, the economy is growing at a steady rate. More jobs are being created as companies are expanding domestically and to new markets. Most of these newly created jobs are mid- to top-level management jobs that require specific sets of skills and expertise. Filling these jobs are not always easy, especially since companies have specific needs and requirements to meet as well.

The steady shift has sparked an increase in the number of professionals going back to school. Companies have started giving incentives to employees who are willing to spend the extra time to pursue a business degree, particularly an MBA.

More Courses and Programs

The education landscape is more than ready to meet this increasing demand. Top universities such as Rutgers Online are making their online courses available to more students. These courses are fully accredited and require students to meet the same standards as their offline colleagues. This means graduates can be expected to have the required skills and knowledge to perform well in the job market.

Record hot year may be the new normal by 2025

The hottest year on record globally in 2015 could be just another average year by 2025 if carbon emissions continue to rise at their current rate, according to new research published in theĀ Bulletin of American Meteorological Society.

And no matter what action we take, human activities had already locked in a “new normal” for global average temperatures that would occur no later than 2040, according to lead author Dr Sophie Lewis, from the Australian National University (ANU) hub of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS).

Stem cell transplants may induce long-term remission of multiple sclerosis

New clinical trial results provide evidence that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy followed by transplantation of a person’s own blood-forming stem cells can induce sustained remission of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system.

Five years after receiving the treatment, called high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (HDIT/HCT), 69 percent of trial participants had survived without experiencing progression of disability, relapse of MS symptoms or new brain lesions. Notably, participants did not take any MS medications after receiving HDIT/HCT. Other studies have indicated that currently available MS drugs have lower success rates.

School vouchers bring more money to Catholic schools — but at a cost,

School voucher programs, which use government funds to support students attending private schools, are rising in popularity around the United States. Today, dozens of states offer this type of program to students, and that number is expected to increase. President Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, is a strong advocate for these programs.

These programs raise important questions about church-state issues. In the U.S., private schools are dominated by religious organizations. According to government data, more than 80 percent of all private school students attend religiously affiliated schools. By providing monetary support for enrollment in religious schools, vouchers have the potential to change the funding of religious activities in the U.S., at a time when many churches are already struggling financially.
