Is a Part-Time MBA Right For You?

Is a Part-Time MBA Right For You?

An MBA has long been considered a golden ticket to better employment opportunities. As great as that sounds, attending a full-time MBA program remains impracticable for many people. However, a part-time MBA can help individuals who may otherwise pass up the opportunity to expand on their professional knowledge. But is a part-time MBA really worth the effort? The following can help you decide if a part-time MBA is right for you. 

No Time for Full-Time

The vast majority of people that choose to do a part-time MBA do so because they already have a career. They usually cannot devote the time necessary to participate in a full-time program. Part-time programs allow students to achieve success while still maintaining important work and family commitments. This is obviously an important factor, as more people are choosing to go the part-time route.

Bring a Touch of Tuscan Sun into Your Home

Bring a Touch of Tuscan Sun into Your Home

What does the scent of buttery garlic, fresh herbs and spices have in common with the magnificence of hewn marble and the lightly textured coolness of terracotta? They’re all evocative of the Italian countryside, just as Tuscan style has come to represent pastoral Italy anywhere in the world. 

Italian Palette

Warm, earthy colors typify the fertile ground and bright sunshine of rural Italy. Terracotta browns, golden yellows and hints of rich olive greens or deep vineyard purples epitomize the scent of freshly turned earth and sun-ripened grapes.

Because Tuscan color schemes use bold, dark colors on walls, it is important to use lighter neutrals in your furnishings. The eye is drawn toward lighter colors, so cognac or dusty creams are great for seating areas. This further emphasizes themes of family and togetherness.

What Adoption is Really Like

Adoption is a polarizing subject. Skim through news articles and you’ll find both sides of the spectrum: excited parents cherishing the tiny life they get to share, and heartbreaking stories of kids wounded so deeply that they only know how to hurt others.

Adoption is complex. Its nuances are deep and varied. There’s joy and sorrow, defeat and victory, wounding and healing in the process.

Kids from Hard Places

According to Dr. Karen Purvis, director of the TCU Institute of Child Development, every child has some risk factors that can affect their lives.

  1.     Difficult or stressful pregnancy
  2.     Difficult birth
  3.     Prematurity or early medical trauma

New Mobile Apps Help Battle Depression

Are you depressed? There is now an app for that. And it goes far beyond what you might expect a mobile marketing expert to come up with. In fact, there is now research to suggest that smartphone sensors can accurately gauge a person’s physical and mental well-being.

Advancements in smartphone technology mean that more data on human behavior can be collected than ever before. Several new apps are being developed in order to use these new mobile technologies to the fullest. As a result, smartphones may completely transform the way that mental healthcare is practiced in the future.

Maintaining a Historic Home

Maintaining a Historic Home

Any homeowner who lives in an older house will tell you that it takes a little extra TLC to properly maintain it. Historic homes require even more attention. The difference between maintaining an older home and a historic home can be substantial.

What Is a Historic Home?

Age alone does not make a house a historic building. Historic homes are those that:

-Are over 50 years old;

-Still stand in the original location;

-Represent a specific time period or architectural style accurately or are associated with specific historical events or persons;

-May be designated as part of a historic district or are listed on the National Register of Historic Homes.
