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.

Hunting is a major threat to wildlife particularly in tropical regions, but a systematic large-scale estimate of hunting-induced declines of animal numbers was lacking so far. A study published in Science on April 14 fills this gap. An international team of ecologists and environmental scientists found that bird and mammal populations were reduced within 7 and 40 km of hunters’ access points, such as roads and settlements.

New report links early life antibiotic use to inflammatory gut diseases in adulthood

A new research report in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology involving mice shows that antibiotic use very early in life that alters the normal development/growth of gut bacteria, may contribute to the development of inflammatory bowel disease, and potentially other inflammatory diseases like asthma and multiple sclerosis. This study adds more evidence to suggest that altering gut flora may be a viable treatment strategy for some inflammatory diseases.

US streams carry surprisingly extensive mixture of pollutants

Many U.S. waterways carry a variety of pollutants, but not much is known about the composition or health effects of these chemical combinations. A new in-depth study, however, is providing insight as it shows the mixtures are more complex than expected and contain compounds that could potentially harm aquatic species. They say the findings, reported this week in Environmental Science & Technology, could have implications for human health.
