"Within the credential universe, you find badges and certificates (earned for completing a course) as well as licenses and certifications (which require an exam and must be renewed). Like a real-life game of Pokémon, people are collecting and stacking them—mixing, sequencing, or combining—to show off their powers."

Heather Feaga wrote to us on Facebook:

"Don't ever get student loans. Period. And don't get a degree in art, or philosophy, or history, or something that you will very unlikely get paid real money for."
It's true that there's a relationship between college major and your projected earnings after graduation. Engineering grads top the list.

But it doesn't necessarily follow that everyone should rush into technical fields, or choose any college major based on earnings alone. For one thing, economists will tell you that the right "fit" between a person and a job is a key driver of success and productivity. One example: When people graduate in a recession year it drags down their earnings long term, and one reason is because of job mismatch — people are desperate and take the first job they can find.

800 scientist representing 80 countries around the world with the same conclusion, "... human influence on the climate system is clear and growing, with impacts observed across all continents and oceans."

Recent droughts have intensified, causing massive complications worldwide. There isn't any place for political agendas to lie to the public anymore for their own gain. The evidence is clear -- now we have to join forces to do what is best for humanity.

Please spread the word and share this post.
