First-year students should avoid online classes

I did not know what to expect when I signed up for two online classes entering my freshman year of college. While I had never had a class where all the lectures, assignments and projects were entirely done online with minimal instructor interaction, I was open to try a new way of learning. After three weeks of experiencing my first online classes, I want to warn all students, especially first-year ones, to be very wary of selecting an online course. It is best to avoid them altogether. Lectures are an…

Ask Dr Bruce Chard: Should the hairs on my shih tzu’s eyes be removed?

My 2-year-old shih tzu called Bess has recently had an eye discharge in her left eye, which I cleared with saline wipes. While treating this I noticed there were hairs on the eye surface coming from the inner corner of her eye. Should I have these removed?

Should boys and girls be taught separately in our schools?

The legal wrangle in the courts over whether segregating boys and girls in a mixed-sex Muslim school in Birmingham breaks the law under the Equality Act 2010 has brought questions about the merits of single-sex education back to the fore. However, stepping back from the specifics of this case, is it time to entirely rethink the existence of gender segregation in state-funded education? Proponents of single-sex education point to stark gender divides in subject choices. In 2016, 76% of psychology and 73% of English A-level entries came from girls. On the flip side, more than…

How To Answer The Mid-Career Question, ‘What Should I Do Next?’

“What should I do next?” I hear this question a lot. After running a company designed around the new world of work for the past decade, I’ve had hundreds of discussions with people in the middle of their careers who feel stuck, unhappy, disengaged or confused — and who are looking for a better path. A group studying job satisfaction in the U.K. suggests the mid-career slump is “U-shaped” — meaning, our satisfaction with our work peaks at the beginning and end of our careers, but often dips in the…

Institutes of Technology should be lightning rods for entrepreneurs

Undermined by financial problems, Ireland’s Institutes of Technology have a powerful role yet to play in the country’s entrepreneurial journey, writes John Kennedy. At the end of the working week, I had time for one more phone call.

On that earlier occasion, Whelan…

The commercial enterprise secretary, Sajid Javid, launched the research last August after a number of Britain’s pleasant-recognized eating place chains have been uncovered for withholding some or all of…
