Florida's higher education system ranks best in the nation

Florida may be the butt of many jokes, but its higher education system is second to none. However, the state's PreK-12 education lacks comparatively, giving Massachusetts the top spot for the best education overall. Americans believe their state governments should prioritize education, but much work needs to be done to catch up to other countries. None Let's face it, the other 49 states aren't always kind to Florida. We roll our eyes at how the state horked a national election, made mothers terr...

U.S. News: How and Why to Refinance a Reverse Mortgage

Refinancing an existing reverse mortgage into a new and potentially better one could be an option that works for some senior homeowners, but it’s not a universally good solution for everyone. This is according to a new article at U.S. News & World Report by personal finance and business contributor Rebecca Lake. Not only would a borrower have to be aware of the potential benefits a reverse mortgage refinancing could bring to them, but it also has to make sense for the lender, as well. This is...

Georgia Tech Online Master’s Degree Update: Computer Science $7,000, Data Analytics $10,000

Maybe I’m foolish, but I remain hopeful about the potential of software leading to more affordable, accessible education.

What Happened to Mainstream Journalist Ethics?

Question: Where are journalist ethics these days when we need them as much as ever?  Walter Cronkite television news 1976. My answer: Real journalists are trying as hard as ever. The tradition of journalist ethics is strong inside the profession among those who are still operating as reporters of news. News values, the goal of objectivity, the need for facts and quotes, the ideal of objective truth lives on. They teach it in schools and the pros pass it on from one generation to the next. When...

Video May Show The Order That Sent Erdogan's Guards To Beat Up U.S. Protesters

A video of last week’s vicious attack on American protesters in Washington, D.C., may show the moment an order was given to set Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s beefy security gang upon the demonstrators. It’s not clear who gave the order last Tuesday to attack protesters across the street from the Turkish ambassador’s house. But in a video taken by Voice of America, a U.S. government-funded news source, someone can be heard saying what sounds like “Come, come, come!” and “He says attac...

Ready to Be Heard

Our smartphones have this funny little emoticon that shrugs its shoulders: "Who knows?" or an apathetic "What are you gonna do?" An image perfect for the times, right? Forget it. Instead, we need an emoticon that throws its shoulders back, thrusts its chest and chin forward, and declares, "We can get through this." These are uncertain times in America and in the health care industry for sure. The Affordable Care Act, a program that has extended medical coverage to so many needy Americans, could ...

Fentanyl Overdoses Are Rising And Science Can't Keep Up

Bribery. Conspiracy. Racketeering. Those are just three of the accusations that federal prosecutors leveled against two Alabama physicians in April as part of a 22-count criminal indictment ― alleging that Drs. John Couch and Xiulu Ruan ran an opioid pill mill in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks from a pharmaceutical company. Couch and Ruan were arrested in 2015 after prescribing Medicare patients a combined $4.9 million in Subsys ― a potent form of fentanyl, taken via...

Why You Should Avoid These Popular Diets

Photographed by Alexandra Gavillet. Just because roll-on glitter was popular a decade or two ago did not make it a good idea (for you or your laundry). And just because everyone's cutting this week's trendy nutritional villain out of their diets — whether it's gluten, sugar, or nightshades — doesn't mean it's in any way feasible or healthy. In fact, as this year's list of the best diets from U.S. News & World Report shows, the most popular plans actually tend to be some of the least healthy....

Christian Health Cost Sharing Programs Growing in Wake of Obamacare

You can share your home by using a service like Airbnb. So, why not share the cost of your medical treatments? That's one of the arguments behind so-called health cost savings programs. These groups, most of which are religious based, have seen double digit increases in memberships the past few years, thanks in great part to an exemption they received to requirements in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Since the Obamacare law went into effect in 2010, it's estimated the number of people in the Uni...

What It’s Like to Have to Date Someone of Your Religion to Save It From Extinction

When Parsi Zoroastrians, having fled Persian persecution, arrived on Indian soil sometime between the 8th and 10th centuries, the story goes, an Indian ruler sent a cup full of milk. The intention, clearly, was to convey that India was filled to the brim. The Zoroastrian king inserted either sugar—or in some tellings, a ring—and sent the cup back to suggest that not only was there room for his people, but they would also enrich Indian society if permitted to settle. Certain restriction...
