How 3D Printing is Changing Industries

By Sponsored Content

July 23, 2018

I have a friend who Just got a very cool job in the aerospace industry. One of the cool things about his gig is that he works with a 3D printer. He uses it for all kinds of important stuff--but he also uses it for some fun projects, too (his employer is pretty cool about it). I’m amazed by the stuff that 3D printers can do now! This wasn't possible years ago, right? It seems like the 3D printers that are out there are cutting...

Maximizing Value on Vacation

July 23, 2018

I’ve been working hard in school for a long time now. With my senior year looming and my career set to start after that, it looks like I’m going to keep working hard for the foreseeable future. I need a break! So I’m looking to take a big vacation — probably to Hawaii, if I can afford it. But that’s a pretty big “if!” I really want to take a serious vacation, but I don’t have a ton of money right now, and I don’...

Safe and Accessible Homes

My grandpa is really getting up there in years, and now that my grandma has passed away, my family is facing some tough decisions. We’re concerned about my grandpa’s health and safety if he continues to live alone — he is prone to falls and doesn’t have great mobility — and we’re thinking about trying to convince him to make a move to an assisted living facility. I’m not sure if that’s the right decision or not. B...

Launching Your Nursing Career

By Sponsored Content

July 3, 2018

I could use some guidance. I just graduated with my Bachelor of Science in nursing, and I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with it. My parents are encouraging me to return home to Atlanta and apply for nursing positions at the hospitals and clinics there. I’m not too fond of that idea. I’ve gotten used to living apart from my family, and my brother said I could get a job just as fast on the west coast. He knows I’...

Crime Rate Comparisons

July 3, 2018

I could use some guidance. I just graduated from college with a degree in justice studies. At first, I planned to apply to law school, but I decided earlier this year that I’d rather get some relevant work experience in law enforcement first. I found some government jobs that relate to criminal profiling research, but I’m curious what that might entail. My former roommate said I could be doing things like crime rate compariso...

Living in Harmony With Nature

July 2, 2018

Lately, I’ve been thinking more and more about my impact on the planet. I feel a little bad, because for most of my life I haven’t thought about this stuff at all. But as I get closer to graduating from college, I think that now is a great time for me to start thinking harder about how I can make sure that my lifestyle as an adult is environmentally friendly. But I’ve never really been a big hippie or anything, so I don’t...

Online Gaming

I’ve grown up playing games online. It’s fascinating to me that something as “new” as video games--which I know weren’t around for all that long before I was born--could be changed so dramatically already. I feel like people who are not that much older than me remember a very different type of gaming! Experts, I’m curious: what can you tell me about online gaming? How has it changed video gaming in general? Video game...

How To Navigate Foreign Environments

June 21, 2018

I could use some guidance. I’m preparing to travel abroad for the first time, thanks to my parents. They’re sending me to Europe at the end of the summer for two weeks, as a college graduation gift. According to my dad, “I shouldn’t enter the real world without having left the United States!” I’ve already spent the past couple of weeks planning my itinerary and my trek is jam-packed with iconic things to see. Just las...

Exploring America

I want to take a vacation that really helps me get to know a country--our country! I’ve been to New York City and some other big touristy places, but I’d really like to spend some time this summer going more off the beaten track. I’m thinking about a road trip with my friends as one possible way to do this. The idea is still pretty vague, though, so I thought I’d turn to the experts for a little bit of inspiration. Do...

Caring for a Car

June 14, 2018

Real world, here I come! Well, not quite yet--I still have one more year here in school. But, after that, I’ll be headed out into the world to try to build my career and my life. I don’t feel totally ready, though, and I’m particularly worried about handling big purchases properly--like a car, which I’ll almost certainly need in order to commute back and forth to my job (assuming I get one--that’s the plan)!I’m s...

Debt and Decision-Making

By Sponsored Content

June 14, 2018

I’m a college kid, and--like a lot of other college kids--I’m terrified of debt. The way that student loans are affecting college students and young professionals is really pretty scary, and I am really not looking forward to paying off my loans for years and years to come.But, obviously, there are a lot of types of debt out there. And some of them are supposed to be “good” ideas, right? My parents want me to buy a house someday, b...

School Security in Today’s Environment

By Sponsored Content

June 14, 2018

I’ve been really concerned lately about school security. It seems like every shooting is getting worse. I live in Florida, so the Stoneman Douglas shooting really hit close to home. I don’t want to get into a political argument regarding the second amendment or what the government can or should be doing or not doing; however, I do think it is important to review current security procedures. I’m an education major, so...
