Take Free Online Classes, Get Course Credit at MIT - "The university announced Wednesday at its Solve conference that it will allow students to obtain one of its master’s degrees by doing half of the coursework online—from anywhere, for free, without any admissions tests—and then doing the other half in a single semester on campus... it amounts to a significant endorsement of the idea that massive open online courses, or MOOCs, will help reshape how universities operate." http://www.technologyreview.com/news/542201/take-free-online-classes-get-course-credit-at-mit/
Passing a free online course isn’t as meaningful as taking the same class for credit on a college campus. But that could be changing.

EU ministers meet today in Brussels to discuss a migrant distribution plan. According to the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees, over 3M have fled to Syria's immediate neighbors, 6.5M are internally displaced in Syria, meaning an increase of potentially 9.5M Muslim residents/citizens in the EU. Will this mass migration of Middle Eastern Muslims (Syria, northern Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq) create a lasting effect on the nature of EU politics and its leadership? Alone, "Germany expects to take in 800,000 refugees," According to President Merkel, "What we are seeing now is something that will continue to be a challenge for our country in the years to come. It will change our country." http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/06__Foreign__Policy__State/03__Europe/HandlingRefugeeInflux.html?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=New+Campaign&utm_term=%2AMorning+Brief
Germany expects to take in 800000 refugees, many of them fleeing war and conflict in Syria, northern Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2015 alone. Germany is responding to this unprecedented influx at all levels of government and society: 6 billion euros in additional spending for federal, ...

"A first draft of the “tree of life” for the roughly 2.3 million named species of animals, plants, fungi and microbes -- from platypuses to puffballs -- has been released. A collaborative effort among 11 institutions, the tree depicts the relationships among living things as they diverged from one another over time, tracing back to the beginning of life on Earth more than 3.5 billion years ago." http://news.science360.gov/obj/story/12cf982b-227e-42d7-a481-1757e311be04/tree-life-23-million-species-released

In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt designated August 19 as National Aviation Day in honor of Orville Wright’s birthday, directing citizens to celebrate the day with activities that encourage an interest in and appreciation for aviation. 

Why is NASA celebrating National Aviation Day? Because we love everything about flight, whether through space or Earth’s atmosphere. 

Our experts in all things aviation are dedicated to improving the design of airplanes so they’re more Earth friendly – less fuel use, lower pollution, less noise around airports. And we work with the Federal Aviation Administration to provide air traffic controllers with new tools for improving efficiency and reducing delays – all while maintaining safety in more crowded skies. 

Celebrate #NationalAviationDay by showing us that you  #SpreadYourWings ! Find out more info here: http://go.nasa.gov/1MAD6cM
