And the Winner Is – Online Travel

By Paul A. Greenberg

Jan 22, 2002 1:55 PM PT

E-commerce is alive and well online. Those who want solid evidence need look no further than the online travel industry.

As one of the few consumer industries that has established itself and shown measurable growth on the Internet, online travel is no longer focused on basic survival. Instead, the industry is concentrating on its quest for the ingredients of longevity: market share, saturation and profit.

Exhibit A is Travelocity (Nasdaq: TVLY), which last week reported fourth-quarter earnings of US$4.9 million or 9 cents per share. Last year at this time — long before terrorist attacks threatened to put serious dents in the online travel industry — Travelocity reported a Q4 loss of $2.4 million or 5 cents per share.

Reflecting the impact of terrorism on online travel, Travelocity reported that gross travel bookings dropped by $60 million from the year-ago period. But fewer sales apparently did not affect the company’s ability to boost its profits.

Now, there’s an equation that’s easy to live with.

Personal Power

So, what is it about the online travel industry that continues to allow it to emerge as the poster child for e-commerce hope?

Some might say it has everything to do with convenience and cost savings for consumers — and they would be partly correct.

But as one who has booked all of his own travel online for the past two years, I believe online travel’s pull goes deeper than that, especially since the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Booking travel online gives consumers a greater sense of control — especially compared with placing their trust in a travel agent or a faceless phone sales rep from an airline company.

Need for Speed

In addition to its ability to make consumers feel like they are in control of their own destiny, online travel caters to customers’ ongoing love of instant gratification — such as printing e-tickets minutes after purchasing them.

Airlines apparently sense this trend and are making moves to capitalize on it. Several airlines have begun charging extra fees for some paper tickets in an aggressive move to persuade consumers to go the e- ticket route.

Too much too soon? Not at all. According to Forrester Research. by 2003, 70 to 80 percent of all airline tickets will be issued electronically.

Watch and Learn

Another reason online travel continues to flourish is that it never gets too comfortable with its own progress.

Even now, with a growth spurt in full force, the top three players — Travelocity, Expedia (Nasdaq: EXPE) and Orbitz — continue to vie for position and innovate.

Expedia, for example, is expanding its operations to include passport and visa services. Users will be able to research travel access requirements for most countries on the Expedia site, then download necessary document applications and send them directly to Expedia’s new partner, Express Visa Service.

Travelers also can check the status of their travel documents at any time.

Redefining ‘Full Service’

The new economy calls for new definitions of old consumer services.

The online travel industry is doing it right by giving consumers total control over their itinerary and by providing self-directed and comprehensive trip planning.

For example, before a journey to London, a traveler can update or initiate travel documents, research promotional rates, book a flight, find hotel packages, buy a Eurail pass, arrange to be met at the airport by a driver and have a rental car waiting at the hotel.

Isn’t that what e-commerce promised us in the first place?

What do you think?

Let’s talk about it.

3 Online Travel Sites You Shouldn t Miss

With so many travel booking websites out there, it’s sometimes hard to know which one to use. While many of us are familiar with larger, established sites like Expedia, Travelocity, and Kayak, there are a number of up and coming travel sites you may not be as familiar with.

Updated (9/15/2011):

One of the newest flight search engines to hit the radar is Google Flights . Launched in September, 2011, it hasn’t reached our favorites list yet, but it does look quite promising.

Google Flights is powered by technology Google acquired earlier in the year when it finalized the purchase of Cambridge, Mass. based ITA Software. While not substantially different from other sites that let you search for flights, it is one of the fastest we’ve used. The site uses location information from your computer to anticipate your departure airport and it pre-fills this info into the flight search form. (The site correctly guessed our airport when using a desktop computer near Washington, D.C. but oddly thought we’d be departing from New York when using an Android smartphone with GPS enabled at the same desk.) Start the search by entering a destination city (or choosing one from the list of popular destinations) and a list of flights is immediately displayed based on a 5-day trip beginning about 2 weeks from today. A clever calendar view displays a bar graph of prices by date and a scatter graph lets you move sliders to find the best balance of price and flying time. Clever, albeit a bit complicated.

Once you’ve found the flight you want, the site takes you to the website of your chosen airline and pre-fills the info about your selected flight to help speed your purchase — though this feature didn’t work for some airlines. As with most Google products, expect a series of rapid improvements and enhancements in the near future as the product matures.

And now, for our current favorite travel booking websites:

This “hip” site has a clean, intuitive design which makes it a breeze to search for a flight or hotel. A simple form on the homepage lets you enter your desired flight or hotel information, while the HipMunk mascot, a travel-ready chipmunk, smiles at you. Results are displayed chronologically in a novel Gantt-chart format that makes it easy to zero in on the departure and arrival times. (You can also sort by price, stops, departure time, arrival time, or duration.) Our favorite sorting criteria, which is also the default, is the “Agony” option—which combines price, duration and number of stops into a single criteria.

A tab at the bottom right, which also appears on the home page, offers the option of live help. The hotel search on HipMunk gives you the option to select a hotel based on what you want near you—whether that be shopping, food or nightlife. The results are displayed on a map with each hotel represented by a dot, so you can easily see which hotels are nearest your chosen activity.

Momondo is another easy new way to start your travel plans. Taking a slightly different approach, Momondo searches 800+ travel sites to help you find and compare flights, hotels, and car rentals. Choose your best option and get linked to the airline or travel agency that offers that deal.  Enter your preferred dates right on the homepage, and a list of flight options shows up very quickly.

You can narrow your results by the number of stops, preferred airlines, layover cities or price. The beauty of Momondo is how deep it goes pulling the best deals for you—ones you may have spent hours looking for and still not found. Its search engine moves fast, and moves through it all, to find you your best travel options.

Matrix is a refreshing take on the travel booking site. Its Spartan design may be a turn-off for some but we like that the site is uncluttered and free of advertisements. (Matrix is the software that powers many of the larger travel sites including CheapTickets and Orbitz.) In lieu of fancy design, the folks at Matrix have clearly spent their time refining the ways to shop for your travel plans. Complete your initial search, which requires a bit more information than HipMunk and Momondo, such as the option to choose which cabin you prefer, and your search results appear.

The results promise the best deals, but the real fun begins once you choose an option that may work. Click on your chosen option, and it takes you to another page where you can view events and tours that are happening during your trip.

The Bottom Line

Despite different features these sites offer, many of us still use travel sites primarily to search for the lowest price. To see how these sites stacked up against each other and the competition, we priced three sample trips: Raleigh-Durham to Las Vegas, Denver to Orlando, and Phoenix to Chicago.

For all three trips, the prices were the same across all the sites—including Expedia and Travelocity. We also like that the airfare on these three sites included all the fees and tariffs in the total so you see the price you’ll actually pay.

The Best Online Travel Sites of 2016 #travel #super #market

#travel online

Online Travel Sites Review

by Amy Smith

The top performers in our review are Orbitz. the Gold Award winner; CheapTickets. the Silver Award winner; and Priceline. the Bronze Award winner. Here s more on choosing a site to meet your needs, along with detail on how we arrived at our ranking of the top 10 travel sites.

Travel can offer adventure, relaxation or access to vital business contacts, and even a perfect combination of all three, at times. The best online travel sites ensure you get as much as possible for each dollar in your travel budget. They also help you make the most of every minute of your time when you are in the market for a great vacation package. These sites make it easy to quickly organize every facet of your trip flights, lodging and any short trips in between. The best of them allow you to package different aspects of your trip for ease and savings.

Establishing a relationship with the right site can lead to many rewarding travel experiences over many years. Booking with the wrong site can lead to various frustrations related to limited selection, overly strict or impossible-to-find cancellation policies, hidden fees, high prices and low quality customer service.

As we began our online travel sites review, we wondered if there would be a best travel site for flights and a different one for car rentals and other aspects of a vacation. Happily we found quite a few travel sites that do a good job at multiple types of bookings, under various circumstances. This ability to multitask is one thing that sets travel sites apart from hotel booking sites, which are excellent for finding lodging. Zeroing in on the perfect hotel room, in the perfect area, for the perfect price is valuable, but some trips require planning help for all aspects of your journey. That’s when an online travel site is best. It can become a virtual travel agent that works with impressive speed to find deals and even steals for travel and lodging. For more information, check out our articles about online travel sites .

Hilton Scores a Victory Over Online Booking Sites, and What It

#travel site

Hilton Scores a Victory Over Online Booking Sites, and What It Means for How Travel Will Be Booked

by Gary Leff on December 1, 2015

United Airlines used to offer last minute e-fares on their website, but stopped because they ran afoul of agreements with computer reservation systems to always display the best available fares through those sites.

Paying the computer reservation systems is costly, it s cheaper when airlines sell to you directly, so they used to offer bonus miles for doing so. And paying the online travel agencies is costlier still. Even though few airlines base commissions any longer (although Alitalia just re-introduced 1% commissions in Italy) they do pay based on volume.

Airlines have long paid less to the online travel sites than hotels. So hotels have gone to greater lengths than airlines in trying to get customers to book direct. Generally when you book on Expedia you still earn frequent flyer miles for your flights, and are eligible for elite status accrual and elite benefits. (Although it may not always be as clear what restrictions apply to the fares you re buying.)

Hotels on the other hand have:

  • Restricted points-earning (Hilton s official policy is no points at all, even for incidentals during your stay, when booking through a third party)
  • Restricted status-earning (major chains won t let your stay booked through most third parties count towards gaining or retaining status)

  • Restricted elite status benefits (Though Hyatt and Marriott generally honor elite status on third party bookings, other major chains do not)
  • During periods with hotel occupancy low, the OTAs had the greatest leverage. The major chain hotels were paying over 20% commissions, perhaps 25%, and independent hotels easily paid 40%.

    But those commissions have been falling. With hotels full they have a stronger bargaining hand. They re able to pay lower commissions, and negotiate other favorable terms.

    Hilton reports that it has successfully concluded better deals.

    [Hilton CEO Chris] Nassetta said Hilton Worldwide won the right to lower the commissions it pays to online travel agencies such as Expedia and

    Hilton Worldwide managed to eliminate last-room availability clauses and won the right to offer preferential pricing — lower rates than it gives to online travel agencies — to certain members of the hotel chain’s loyalty program, Nassetta said.

    “We are done with all of our OTA negotiations, and we achieved our goals in every one of those pillars,” Nassetta said.

    This likely explains Hilton testing discounts for HHonors members since they don t have to offer those same rates through online booking sites and can use those to incentive lower direct booking expenses.

    Airlines, too, continually squabble with the online sites and computer reservation systems over how their fares are distributed. Lufthansa is currently imposing an extra charge for tickets through these systems, which makes them less competitive. It s hard to sort out the effect it has had on the airline, because their sales have also been affected by strikes. Airlines want online travel sites to work through their own, less expensive, direct channels. And they want everyone selling their ancillary products, at the lowest cost to the carrier.

    When we see Expedia buy Orbitz after buying Travelocity we shouldn t just think of them as making consumer unfriendly moves, we should think of them as:

    1. Trying to preserve some of their leverage against travel providers who are eroding their margins.
  • Making defensive moves in anticipation of Google disrupting their business model.
  • That isn t to say that consolidation in the online booking industry is consumer-friendly. And consumer experiences vary. But online travel agency sites are hardly gaining market power .

    Many coding positions seek individuals with an associate’s degree in medical billing and coding. Courses provide knowledge in medical terminology, reimbursement methods, pathophysiology and commonly used coding systems, including CPT and ICD-9. Students are also taught the details of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as well.

    Step 2: Gain Work Experience

    While work experience is not a requirement to become certified, obtaining 2-3 years of work experience is also highly recommended. Hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices and insurance companies are common work environments for medical coders. Individuals enrolled in a degree program also have the opportunity to enroll in an internship to gain hands-on training and some recommended work experience.

    Step 3: Pursue Certification

    The AHIMA oversees the certification exam for aspiring coding specialists. It offers several certification designations, including the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) and the Certified Coding Specialist-Physician-based (CCS-P). The CCS is geared towards hospital-based coding professionals. Both tests consist of two parts, including multiple-choice questions and patient-case scenarios for medical coding. Both the CCS and the CCS-P exams test on ICD-9 and CPT coding systems. The CCS-P also includes testing on the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS).

    Step 4: Take Continuing Education Courses and Renew Certification

    The BLS reported that health information technicians (which include certified coding technicians) need to regularly renew their certification and take continuing education classes. The AHIMA offers seminars, conferences and webinars that provide beneficial experiences for certified coding specialists and meet these requirements. CCSs and CCS-Ps must complete at least 30 continuing education units (CEUs) like these every certification cycle, as well as pay a renewal fee. CEUs are completed through college courses.

    Step 5: Consider Pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree

    Coding specialists looking to pursue promotional opportunities may need a bachelor’s degree in health administration or a related field, so coding specialists should keep that option open to them if they wish to advance.

    Certified coding specialists have associate’s degrees and certification. They use medical software programs while overseeing and updating patient records, and they earn a median annual salary of $37,110.

    Counseling Psychology

    Counseling psychology focuses on the normal adaptation of individuals to their environment and with helping others cope with crises, problems of daily living and mental challenges. Traditionally, counseling psychology has been concerned with the preventative aspects of mental health and an emphasis on client strengths. You can find out more about the counseling specialty area on the Society for Counseling Psychology web page. The counseling psychology program at UNT is committed to the idea that human problems are the result of complex interaction of environmental factors and developmental changes in the person. The program provides professional training within the broad context of the scientist-practitioner model. The Director of counseling psychology training at UNT is Chiachih DC Wang, Ph.D..

    The Ph.D. with a major in counseling psychology prepares students for work as independent professionals in research, academic, or applied settings. The counseling psychology doctoral program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Accreditation [750 First Street NE, Washington, D.C. 20002-4242, telephone (202) 336-5979]. The program was first accredited in 1978 under the directorship of Ray W. Johnson, Ph.D.

    Online Paralegal Certificate Programs #online #college #paralegal


    Online Paralegal Certificate Programs

    One of the most exciting things about being a working professional in this day and age is that education options are being catered specifically to you. In the past, if you were working full time and wanted to pursue additional schooling, you would need to find a way to attend school in person during the working day. With the advent of online learning and the increasing demand for personalized and efficient education options, the working professional now has more schooling options than ever before.

    If you are currently in the workforce and are interested in changing career paths by pursuing a paralegal certificate, there are many online options. Online options are also available for those who have recently graduated from a college degree program and are looking to add a paralegal certificate to their resume. Online paralegal certificate programs are a great option for today’s busy world because they offer professional instruction in the basics of being a paralegal, and give you the option of conveniently completing your training from your own home.

    Types of Online Paralegal Programs

    The main differences in types of online paralegal programs are the outcome of the course of study. Students who complete an online paralegal program may receive a paralegal certificate, associates degree in paralegal studies, or a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies. The differences between all of these online programs are described in detail below.

    Online Paralegal Certificate Programs

    In order to pursue a paralegal certificate program, most schools require that students have already obtained either a two or four year degree. If you already have a degree and are looking for a relatively quick way to get into the legal profession, an online paralegal certificate may be right for you.

    Online paralegal certificate programs typically take anywhere from 9 to 18 months to complete. They can be completed on a full or part-time basis. Many online certificate programs are designed for parents or working professionals, offering flexible online learning that takes place during evenings or weekends. In a typical certificate program, students learn the most important basics of the paralegal profession such as legal writing and research, professional communication, and legal ethics. A paralegal certificate is not the equivalent of a paralegal degree, but it is a great way to learn the basics in order to try for entry level jobs and begin working as a paralegal. Potential future employers will likely look more favorably upon a candidate with some paralegal education than a candidate with none. A certificate can give you the edge you need in the job market.

    Online Associates in Paralegal Studies Programs

    If you have not yet obtained any kind of college degree and you would like to become a paralegal, a program which offers an associates degree may be a good choice for you. If you pursue an associates degree full-time, it will usually take about 2 years to complete. Many community colleges and online universities offer online associates degrees in paralegal studies or legal studies. The flexibility and convenience of online learning cannot be matched by in-person schooling. Pursuing an online degree allows you to take care of your coursework at times that are convenient for you. Some programs even give you the option of going at your own pace to complete your degree. Online learning may involve real-time video lectures, or pre-recorded lectures. It may also include web-based chats with fellow students and professors. The specifics for each online program will vary; however, the general idea behind offering online classes is that they give traditional and non-traditional students additional education options to help make a degree more achievable.

    Online Bachelor’s in Paralegal Studies Program

    If you do not have previous college credit, or you already have an associates degree, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science degree program in legal studies or paralegal studies. A typical bachelor’s degree program takes about four years of full-time schooling to complete. Many colleges and universities offer online bachelor’s programs for those interested in becoming paralegals.

    Unlike a certificate program, associates and to a greater extent bachelor’s degree programs, will likely require students to complete some general classes over the course of their studies. Some typical general courses required may include social sciences, economics, mathematics, humanities, or statistics. These types of courses provide a well-rounded education and may help students further develop communication and critical thinking skills. Students often complete these courses before they move on with more specified legal and paralegal coursework.

    Unlike a certificate program, associates and to a greater extent bachelor’s degree programs, will likely require students to complete some general classes over the course of their studies. Some typical general courses required may include social sciences, economics, mathematics, humanities, or statistics. These types of courses provide a well-rounded education and may help students further develop communication and critical thinking skills. Students often complete these courses before they move on with more specified legal and paralegal coursework.

    Online bachelor’s degree programs (and sometimes associates programs) may include an internship as a part of the required course of study. The internship would be the only part of the program that would not be completed online. An internship as a paralegal student can be an incredibly valuable experience. It is worth the hassle of attempting to work your regular job and also work internship hours as it may give you a leg up when looking for a future job as an entry-level paralegal because it provides some job experience.

    In most states, with the exception of California, there are no special requirements or certifications necessary in order to practice as a paralegal. In theory, one could work as a paralegal with no specific legal or paralegal training. In practice, however, the chances of landing a paralegal job with no experience or education are quite slim.

    If you are hoping to become a paralegal but have no way of getting legal job experience, obtaining a certificate or degree is an exemplary way to become qualified for a potential paralegal position. When a law firm is seeking to hire a paralegal they will consider many factors, but education and experience may be the most influential. Paralegals work alongside attorneys and assist them with all types of projects. From client management, to legal writing and drafting, paralegals must be prepared for a wide variety of tasks. Education in the legal field will help you become more thoroughly prepared to perform the tasks required of a paralegal.

    MA in English (online programs) #online #ma #degree


    The MA in English online programs function as professional or self-designed MA in English degrees.

    We offer three tracks for the MA in English (online):

    For those involved in or preparing for middle school English teaching, high school English teaching, AP teaching, two-year college teaching, or dual-enrollment programs (such as Ohio’s College Credit Plus program, among others).

    Features of our MA in English online programs:

    • Earn your entire degree online in a program designed to be taught and learned online.
    • Specialize in your areas of interest with faculty who are expert teachers and experts in their fields.
    • Our programs are perfect for distance learners from anywhere on the globe. (For local students, some courses can be taken face-to-face if the student chooses.)

    • Learn during your available time; courses don’t meet at a specific time of day or on specific days during the week, so they’re perfect for those currently working or with otherwise busy schedules.


    The Department also offers graduate certificate programs in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) (offered only face-to-face). A student can earn such a certificate alongside the MA degree.

    Online Colleges in Nevada: The 5 Best Online Schools of 2017


    Online Colleges in Nevada

    Most Popular Rankings

    In the 2015 Education Data Book, one of the more painful truths reported was that, among the state s working professionals over the age of 25, only 22.5% held bachelor s degrees; the lowest such percentage amongst states in the west. Yet, optimism remains, thanks in part to the state s robust selection of distance learning programs and courses. Take the state s E-Learning Task Force, an initiative of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE); this effort is using the state s online learning programs to achieve the common goal of graduating more students while supporting student success. More degrees means more qualified, working professional in Nevada, which in turn would be a boon to the economy. A number of the state s schools have taken up the charge, improving upon their already solid online options.

    But before we dive into our list of the best online colleges in Nevada for 2017, let s start with the state of higher education and online education in particular in Nevada today.

    Featured Online Colleges

    Keiser University

    Providing student-centered, career-focused education

    Kaplan University

    Helping you achieve your goals, from enrollment through graduation and beyond

    A Brief Overview of Higher Education in Nevada

    In 2013, the National Center for Education Statistics reported that Nevada had 27 degree-granting institutions, broken down as follows: 7 public schools, 3 nonprofits and 17 for-profits. The total number of bachelor s degrees awarded in the 12- 13 school year at these schools was: 6,975 at public schools, 302 at private nonprofits and 233 at private for-profits.

    in 2013, Nevada had 27 degree-granting institutions

    Tuition-wise, the College Board found that, in the 15- 16 school year, the average in-state tuition and fees for four-year public schools was $6,670, while the out-of-state average was $20,490, increasing by only 1% over the last last five years.

    As for the state s financial aid efforts, the National Association of State Student Grant Aid Programs (NASSGAP) reported that Nevada awarded $10.39 million in need-based grants and $23.86 million in non-need grants for the 13- 14 school year. Grants make up 7% of the state s total fiscal support for higher education. Over the same year, Nevada awarded $17.9 million in tuition waivers. The Center on Budget and Policies Priorities reported that from 13 to 14 there was a 4.1% increase ($301) in state spending per student in Nevada.

    Tuition at Nevada schools is competitive, with a particularly low in-state rate, and the state does an excellent job of supporting its students, with weight grants and an excellent tuition waiver program. To boot, the state government has managed stable growth in the amount of spending it allots for postsecondary students.

    The State of Online Higher Education in Nevada

    The NCES estimates that at least 9.8% of students enrolled in Nevada s Title IV institutions are in fully online programs. Of those, 92.3% were reported to be undergraduates and 89.5% were found to be living in Nevada.

    Are in fully online programs

    Were reported to be Undergraduates

    Were found to be living in the state

    As we mentioned in our introduction, the NSHE, representing the state s public schools, is a major proponent of online learning. Data-wise. NSHE has seen total enrollment in distance courses increasing by over 438% across an eight year period starting in 2001; results seem to indicate such steady growth will continue over the next few years. It s estimated that nearly one-third of all enrollments at NSHE schools are in distance learning courses.

    Nevada is also part of the SARA regional education compact known as the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). The WICHE Internet Course Exchange (ICE) offers opportunities for state residents, through their local college or university, to access high quality distance programs offered at out-of-state WICHE institutions, often at greatly reduced rates.

    Best Online Colleges in Nevada

    Below, you will find our rankings of the best online four-year programs in Nevada. Our profiles look at how schools approach online education and then list out their services for distance students and their popular, fully online degrees. After reviewing the best online schools in Nevada, explore our state resources, like a database of every college and university in Nevada or our index of popular in-state scholarships.

    Get Seal Methodology

    To determine the best online colleges in each state, we examined the factors most important to prospective students: Academic quality and reputation, online program strength, and cost and student aid. At the most basic level, we use the following formula to determine the best online colleges: Academic Quality + Online Offerings + Cost and Student Aid = Final Score. Of course, there’s more to these calculations than meets the eye. Visit our methodology page to discover the data points that shape our formula and to learn more about the process we use to rank schools.

    When I came across Kristy s prenatal workout series, I was pregnant with my third child. I could tell my third pregnancy was going to be harder on my body than my previous two. I think age was just starting to show its way with me. My back and legs were hurting and I was tiring more quickly throughout the day than I did with my prior pregnancies. Using Kristy s prenatal workouts, after two weeks I felt my body begin to change. Over the course of my pregnancy, my body toned and I ended up feeling more prepared for labor and delivery than ever before. I was so happy with the result that when my husband asked a year later if we could have our fourth, I replied, only if I can have the Baby Bump Workout again.

    Thank you again Kristy for all your insight, help and inspiration.

    Masters of Business Administration (MBA) – MBA #mba #programs, #gmat, #maasters


    Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

    A Masters of Business Administration, or MBA, is the postgraduate degree in business administration and one of the most popular degrees for incoming graduate students, according to the Council of Graduate Schools (based on 2010 data).

These skills can be valuable outside of traditional business environments, such as nonprofits or in education. Skills for running a successful business may help you keep costs down and ensure that the company stays within operational budgets and also prepare you to pull the plug on a project if it’s simply taking too long or not worth the time.

    Leadership: An MBA program can impart the value of leadership and all its related aspects through a combination of training and internships. These programs may help teach you how to put your newfound leadership skills to use not only in day-to-day business operations, but in life outside of work as well.

    Communication: An MBA program involves rigorous training, assignments, reports, presentations and group projects, all of which may provide you with the necessary communication skills to handle real-life business situations. The experiences you develop during the program have the potential to set you apart from others in your field.

    Networking: The alliances that you form with your classmates may last a lifetime and the network that you create can be one of the most important and valuable things you take away from an MBA program. MBA graduates have said they often felt that the associations formed during the program were invaluable and could be drawn upon for years after they have earned their degree.

    There are a number of MBA program specializations to choose from, including information security, operations management and accounting. Beyond the program specializations, there are also a number of different potential education paths you may take — full time, an executive program, distance learning or earning a double degree in two MBA focuses.

    Categorical Data Analysis #categorical #data #analysis, #online #statistics #course, #statistics #


    Categorical Data Analysis

    taught by Brian Marx

    This online course, “Categorical Data Analysis” will focus on a logistic regression approach for the analysis of contingency table data, where the cell entries represent counts that are cross-tabulated using categorical variables. Tests for (conditional) independence are discussed in the context of odds-ratios and relative risks, for both two-way and three-way data tables. After the ground work is laid for logistic regression models for binomial responses, more complex data structure will be introduced, e.g. those having more categorical variables or even continuous covariates. As a broad view is taken through the generalized linear model framework, opportunity is taken to also present a few model variations, such as Probit regression for binomial responses and Poisson regression for count data. Model checking (residuals, goodness-of-fit), model inference (testing, confidence intervals), model interpretation (odds-ratios, EL50s), and model selection (AIC, automatic procedures, testing reduced models) are all detailed. The focus of this course will remain laser sharp on logistic regression modeling and on the corresponding interpretation of these models, rather than the theory behind them.

    This course may be taken individually (one-off) or as part of a certificate program.

    WEEK 1: Categorical Responses and Contingency Tables

    • Binomial and multinomial distributions
    • Maximum Likelihood
    • Test of proportions
    • Joint, marginal and conditional probabilities
    • Odds ratio and relative risk
    • Test of independence
    • Three-way tables
    • Conditional independence and homogenous association

    WEEK 2: Generalized Linear Models

    • Components of a generalized linear model
    • Binary data: logistic and probit models
    • Poisson regression for count data
    • Model checking and resideual analysis

    EALL 203/503/LITR 197 The Tale of Genji

    A reading of the central work of prose fiction in the Japanese classical tradition in its entirety (in English translation) along with some examples of predecessors, parodies, and adaptations (the latter include Noh plays and twentieth-century short stories). Topics of discussion include narrative form, poetics, gendered authorship and readership, and the processes and premises that have given The Tale of Genji its place in “world literature.” Attention will also be given to the text s special relationship to visual culture.

    No knowledge of Japanese required. A previous college-level course in the study of literary texts is recommended but not required.

    Course Type: Undergraduate

    Term: Spring 2015

    Day/Time: T/Th 9:00-10:15AM

    EALL 351/651 Advanced Readings in Modern Chinese Literature

    An introduction to literary criticism and history using texts in the original language.

Readings in Chinese; texts in both simplified and traditional characters.

    EALL 803/CPLT 545 Sympathy and Its Limits

    It is said that the study of literature, unlike other disciplines, has the power to inspire and hone our capacity to feel for others. It trains us by putting us in hypothetical, affectively compelling but controlled worlds where we can experience, reflect, and analyze how we respond to those around us. This seminar tests that view by drawing on literary, social, archival, and theoretical texts, as well as modern accounts of atrocities and disasters in Western and non-Western contexts. Readings include Adam Smith, Lu Xun, Charles Darwin, Carlo Ginzburg, Mo Yan, Samantha Powers, Tokushi Kasahara, Yang Jisheng, Hannah Arendt, and Raul Hilberg.

    Course Type: Undergraduate

    Term: Spring 2015

    Genders and Sexualities in Japanese Literature and Culture, 1600 to the Present

Select themes based on literary readings (in translation), supported by visual materials and film clips, and situated within the broader socio-political, cultural, and historical field.

    Prior knowledge of Japanese is not required; readings are in English.

    Getting the best high interest savings account #high #interest #online #savings


    Best high interest accounts

    Ready to compare?

    The good news is that since April 2016, the introduction of a new Personal Savings Allowance (PSA) has meant that basic-rate taxpayers can earn £1,000 of savings interest without the taxman taking a slice, and higher rate taxpayers can earn £500. Additional rate taxpayers are not eligible for a PSA.

    And the fact you can shelter up to £20,000 from the taxman in cash through an Individual Savings Account (ISA) this tax year is another godsend – as you get to keep every penny of the interest you earn.

    Here’s our guide to the best high interest accounts that you can use to grow your savings pot.

    Cash ISAs

    Cash-ISAs allow you to earn interest tax-free so, it makes sense to max out your ISA allowance before stashing money into a standard savings account.

    Since July 1, 2014 you have been able to hold all of your ISA allowance in cash. ISAs have become even more flexible since April 6, 2016. If you hold cash in an either an investment, cash, or Innovative Finance ISA, you can take this cash out of your account and put it back in within the same tax year without this affecting your annual allowance. Not all ISA providers may offer this flexibility, so check with yours before withdrawing any money.

    The difference between the best and the worst savings accounts is significant

    Current accounts

    If you have already used up your ISA allowance, you might think a standard savings account is the next best place for your nest egg.

    But these days, the best interest rates can actually be found on some current accounts. Some pay up to 5.00% on smaller balances of a couple of thousand, or 3.00% on balances of up to £20,000.

    You usually have to switch your current account completely to benefit from these deals, but the introduction of the Current Account Switch Service in September 2013, means the process is now hassle-free and can be carried out in seven working days.

    Easy access accounts

    Also known as no-notice accounts, easy access deals give you instant access to your cash whenever you want it. That makes them a great home for emergency cash that you can call on to pay for a broken boiler or car repairs, for example.

    The bad news is that interest rates on easy access accounts are generally pretty low – particularly if you don’t shop around for the best deal.

    Better-than-average rates are usually reserved for internet-only accounts, while some employ introductory bonuses to boost the advertised rate – but which run out after the first 12 month.

    Even if there isn’t a bonus, rates tend to be variable so keep a close eye on what the account is paying and switch deals if it’s no longer any good.

    Some accounts that call themselves easy access may also limit the number of withdrawals you can make each year without losing interest – so check this too.

    Notice accounts

    With notice accounts, you generally have to wait between 30 and 120 days to withdraw your money. This means they won’t be suitable if you need access to your cash in a hurry – as the terms state you will lose interest if an emergency withdrawal is made.

    While notice accounts tend to offer higher interest rates than those that provide instant access to your money, this isn’t always the case – so check out easy access rates too before applying.

    And as most easy access accounts have variable, rather than fixed, rates, it’s just as important to monitor your returns and switch if the deal is no longer competitive.

    Regular savings accounts

    Regular savings accounts, which require a set monthly payment – often between £25 and £300 – are a great option for building up savings.

    But while rates are higher, the overall benefits are limited as you will only earn interest on the amount in the account as it builds up. You will also be penalised for missing a payment and you won’t have access to your money for the typical12-month term.

    Fixed-rate bonds

    Fixed-rate bonds are savings accounts that offer a fixed interest rate on your cash for a set period of time, say between one and five years.

    The pay-off for giving up access to your money by paying into an account of this kind is that you should receive a higher rate than you will on an easy access or notice account.

    And, generally speaking, the longer you’re prepared to lock your cash away for, the higher your return will be.

    You will have to pay a penalty should you need to access your money within the term, though.

    As most fixed-rate bonds do not allow you to add to your balance, they are also only suitable for people with a lump sum to invest.

    College Reviews by Graduates #reviews #on #online #colleges


    I wouldn’t return here if I could turn back time. Typical sales pitch personal, they are super polite and answer all of your questions until you have passed your grace period of opting out of the program. Once you are over that period you don’t have that same customer service. Emails are not return as quickly. Read more.

    After I began to research online PhD programs I was very interested in Capella’s program because it provided a thorough description of coursework, comprehensive exams, and dissertation expectations. I also received a pop-up chat line that answered questions I had concerning the PhD program. I then received a call. Read more.

    Submitted on 05-30-2017 by John Downing

    Not every online University is incompetent; certainly, I know that Capella is very competent. It is also worth noting that an online university is not for everyone. For one thing, one has to be effective with using technology, secondly, one has to be time conscious and discipline, third, one has to be a fast learner. Read more.

    Top 4 Reviews of Rasmussen College #rasmussen #college #online #reviews


    Rasmussen College Consumer Reviews

    Amazing, Online, College Experience

    By Mack – 06/20/2014

    BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA — I graduated high school in 2005 where I was an AP and honor roll student. Of course, I went straight into college. However, my father came down with cancer and I moved back home after about a few years. After his fight, he ended up losing his battle. Meanwhile, I lost my personal cheerleader. So, I didn’t have the motivation to go back to school, and I joined the work force.

    Despite not having a college education, I climbed the corporate ladder very quickly no matter where I worked. Finally, I started working for a company where I had the time to not only enjoy with my social life but extra time I knew I could use to go back to school. After speaking with several different colleges, Rasmussen College is the only, and I mean only one, college that did not harass me like I was trying to purchase a car. When I said I needed a few months to think about it, they didn’t even contact me. I had told the same thing to another college, but I ended up in their automated dialer system.

    Finally, I ended up speaking with an enrollment representative and getting enrolling as a student of Rasmussen College despite all the bad reviews that I read, which I am glad I did. Not only does their staff have industry experience in the courses they are teaching, they accept the fact their students may have industry experience as well, and welcome it.

    Some professors in my first years of college would completely disregard the students’ experience. However, all of my professors have accepted I have experience beyond the classroom, and in some instances asked me to speak to the class about it. Granted, I have held back at times, because I know there is a learning process which needs to take place in order to get a good foundation.

    In any case, I happened to see this website on Google and felt I needed to tell everyone about my great experience with Rasmussen College since there are so many bad reviews. In all honesty, I read the bad reviews, know the team at Rasmussen College, and can’t help but think, why didn’t you contact them.

    I have missed assignments at times due to my company requiring I spend extra time on projects, which my professors have only asked that my supervisor notify them and have accepted my work without penalty. If you’re searching for an online experience to truly push your boundaries and make you a better professional in your field, I highly recommend Rasmussen.

    By Thereal – 02/16/2013

    ROMEOVILLE, ILLINOIS — This was absolutely the worst decision of my life to go here. At first going in the school for the first time it did seem kind of like a car salesman trying sell me a car or an army recruiter trying to get me to enlist and I should have recognized that and walked away but It was convenient that I can take all of my classes online which I couldn’t do at my local junior college and I wouldn’t have had to wait weeks to meet with someone like at the junior college which now I look back and I wish I would have been more patient.

    As soon as I signed everything and my financial aid went through that’s when all their talk about “We’re here for you to achieve” went out the window and I could not reach my career counselor and he would never return my messages. The school goes by quarters not semesters. As for the first quarter I took two classes and aced them both and was even on the dean’s list but at the beginning of the second quarter I had a couple of personal family issues that I was dealing with that was interfering with me being able to do my school work.

    After falling behind I was finally able to get ahold of my career counselor after several calls and explained the situation in depth to him in hopes that he would understand and I thought he did. He said he realizes that I’m trying to make an effort and that they would have to withdraw me this quarter but I could come back for the next quarter. So between the end of that quarter and the beginning of the next I spent my time again trying to get ahold of my career counselor with no success. I even tried going up to the school where I was informed that he was on vacation in Las Vegas.

    So the next quarter begins with me still trying to get a hold of my career counselor. I figured if I could get ahold of him I could just start the quarter late and make up the work. Finally after calling several times the secretary at the front desk put me on hold where she would usually tell me that my counselor wasn’t in so I figured finally I’ll get some answers and be able to attend school again but I was wrong – she ended up transferring the call to the financial aid department and the person answering the phone I believe was the head of financial aid. I can’t recall.

    The secretary must have told her who was on the phone because the person already knew my name and immediately started discussing a repayment plan for me. I told her the reason I was calling was to get back into school and that I talked to my career counselor and he said that was OK. She ended up saying it was too late and I would have repay in order to attend school.

    I proceeded to tell her that I am unemployed and I can’t afford it. I then told her of the situation that led me to get withdrawn from school which was very personal to me and something I didn’t want to discuss but did anyway in hopes she would understand. Her response to me was that it wasn’t her problem and when can she be expecting a payment from me I then hung up the phone.

    Now it’s fairly easy to communicate with someone at the college. They call my phone, email me, and even send letters in the mail saying that they will either take my tax refund or garnish my wages which is kind of hard to do since I’m unemployed. The letter also states that they could sue me which is also hard to do seeing that I don’t own any assets – no vehicle or house and doesn’t look like I ever will thanks to Rasmussen since I have no experience in anything and no education that’s why it’s practically impossible to find a job and also the reason why I wanted to go to college in the first place.

    Now I can’t go back until I pay back the loan. I owe almost seven thousand dollars for a quarter and a half of school. Maybe one day I can finally get a job as fry cook or janitor or even a bag person and then they can garnish those wages. Now I know I actually don’t owe Rasmussen. I owe the government but Rasmussen didn’t care about me. All they wanted was the money and they made no attempt to help me get back to school.

    I write this review so maybe it helps someone not make the same horrible mistake I made and if you don’t believe me check it out for yourself and see if they’re not like a car salesman or army recruiter and also look at what they charge. It’s almost double a credit hour compared to a junior college.

    Hungry for Money at Rasmussen College

    By Marine 63 – 10/09/2010

    BURR RIDGE, ILLINOIS — I enrolled at Rasmussen College Fort Myers Florida, 9160 Forum Corporate Pkwy Fort Myers, FL 33905 (239) 477-2100 over the summer of 2010 in their Paralegal Studies Program. I believe I was scheduled to start school somewhere the first week of July 2010. During the course of the commotion of starting school I find out from my doctor I had to have a procedure done on my lower back and that it would interfere with me executing my studies effectively so I chose to dis-enroll from school within the allotted time frame without penalties.

    Now the problem is the text books. Now take to mind I started the first week of school so I had to open my text books which came shrink wrapped, which I had to return those text books to the school which I did and received a receipt for such said text books and it was noted they were taken out of the shrink wrap which is logical because I had to use them but they are in the very same new condition. No marks in them, they were barely looked at. No bent pages etc. Now I understand the economy is horrible but on the other hand it’s outrageously pathetic that the school is trying to strong arm me into giving them a 100.00 dollars to re-shrink wrap the books.

    How feeble minded are they that they think I’m going to pay them 100.00 dollars to re-shrink wrap the text books. They are going to re-shrink wrap them and re-sell them to another student. I didn’t fall out of the coconut tree the other day and I am not a fool. What are your thoughts or opinions? Thank you. Oh! By the way, Rasmussen sent me on a goose chase by directing me to a department that doesn’t handle the situation. Nice try Rasmussen College.

    Company Response 10/11/2010:

    Please contact the Rasmussen College Personal Support Center at 866-693-2211, and we would be happy to further investigate this situation. We strive to provide the best customer service to our current and former students, and will work with you to have this issue resolved. Thanks!
