Online Education Offers Unparalleled Learning Freedom

As the information age rolls on we are finding more and more universities that are willing to invest in the education of students who may not necessarily be in a position to attend classes at that particular university. The offerings are still somewhat limited but there are opportunities to earn associates, bachelors, and even master’s degrees strictly though online course work. This is something that was virtually unheard of even a few years ago.

Today’s students truly do have more options available to them than ever before if they are willing to invest the time and effort into their studies, there are few limits to the level of education you can receive, even if it has been years since you last attended a university or community college. Even those colleges and universities that do not offer full fledged degree programs exclusively through online learning mediums are beginning to offer many courses online for students with busy schedules and lifestyles. This means that you now have the opportunity to combine distance or online learning with a few night or weekend courses in order to complete your degree even if you have a full time day job and family that needs to see you at home on occasion.

Even if a degree is not something you are necessarily seeking you might be amazed at the wide array of courses that are available for those interested in increasing their depth of knowledge on different issues from the comfort of their own homes. I know that the idea of self-directed online learning opportunities appeal to me on many levels. These opportunities however, are not necessarily a good idea for everyone. We all learn in different manners and some of us learn best by actually being in the classroom and hearing what has to be said or from hands on experience. This type of learning is not necessarily possible when it comes to distance learning in an email or bulletin board type of environment, which is how many Internet classrooms operate.

Online learning is also not a good idea for those who aren’t perfectly willing, able, and capable of holding themselves responsible for their learning. Face it, for some of us it is much easier to get up and go to a classroom than it is to force ourselves to log on and pay attention at home. We all have areas in which our discipline is well in hand and others where we seem to have no discipline whatsoever. If you can’t hold yourself on task or have difficulties not being distracted by the many other novel things there are to do online you might be best served through an actual classroom experience rather than a distance learning environment like those of online classes.

This is not meant to discourage you from distance learning or online classrooms. In fact, I think these are by far the best option for many working professionals who are seeking to advance their careers, knowledge, and/or earning potential. You will not need to feel as though you are choosing between the future needs of yourself and your family and the limited time you have with your family already. You can schedule around your family time and make the sacrifice when it comes to sleep.

With online classes it doesn’t matter if you are in your pajamas or in a suit and tie you can still do the work you need to do online and no one will be the wiser. You also might find that you can squeeze your education into your lunch hour, particularly if you can type and chew at the same time. The truth is that online classes offer superior flexibility to those hoping to further their education. Whether you are hoping to earn a degree or simply wish to broaden your horizons by taking a few online classes, you just might find that the possibilities are limitless once you begin taking these courses from home. 
A degree from a university means many thing to many different people. Only you can define the importance of a degree such as this to you and only you can determine whether or not now is the time for you to pursue a university degree. If you are unsure about how advantageous a university degree could be to your life let’s look at some of the advantages to a university education in relationship to a community college education.

Money. The first obvious advantage of a university education would be in future earning potential. A four-year degree trumps a two-year degree almost every time. There would have to be exceptional circumstances for someone with a two-year degree to earn more over the course of a lifetime than someone with a four-year degree in the same exact field. While a degree does not guarantee employability, it does improve the odds as well as the income potential that is associated with the field you are entering into. If you have a two-year degree the decision to continue your educational pursuits can be a tough one but it is well worth the effort in the end.

Housing. This is another distinct advantage that universities offer over community colleges. In fact, many universities are now offering housing opportunities to students with families in addition to those students who have no families. Colleges and universities are offering all kinds of value when it comes to housing and meal plans. A great deal of the college experience is missed when you do not live on campus. For this particular reason students wishing to enjoy the experience that dorm life provides often consider universities over community colleges.

Diversity. This is another key component that is often missing at the community college level. International students find no real price breaks between universities and community colleges so they tend to opt for the housing and cultural atmosphere that universities present rather than going with the limiting educational, residential, and cultural experience offered by many community colleges. You will find students of different races, religions, cultures, and nations on the university level-far more than will typically be seen in a community college unless you are attending community college in a very culturally diverse city such as New York.

Culture. This is something that is often lacking on the community college level, as they are largely commuter campuses. You will not see quite the opportunity to experience art, music, the theater, and other wonderful experiences that universities pride themselves in offering to their students. There is nothing quite like the cultural offerings of most large universities and if you get the opportunity I hope you will take the time to stop and experience some of the wonderful things that being in a university community present you with an opportunity to experience.

Research opportunities. On a university level you will have the opportunity to participate in research projects with certain professors if your prove yourself worthy and express an interest. This is something that isn’t as likely on the community college level as most professors in a community college are dedicated to teaching rather than research. You will find that the experience of working on a large-scale research project is unlike anything you are likely to experience again if you ever get the chance.

Confidence. There is nothing quite like a college degree from a university to help you become a more confident person both personally and professionally. This is something that really can’t be achieved on the community college level but can only be experienced by getting a degree from a university. If you lack confidence when dealing with others or in your career, I hope that you will find that your university education is just the thing to help you feel more confidence on all levels of your life. Countless women nowadays are striving to lose weight some restrict their food intake and engage in intense exercise routines. The long list may include athletes, super models, and ordinary women who believe that “thin is sexy.” These individuals tend to exercise too much and eat too little. Women who engage in such activities are at risk of many health problems like amenorrhea, a term that refers to the absence of menstrual periods. This is experienced by women because of extremely low body fat content. Missed menstrual is often linked to decreased estrogen (primary female sex hormone) levels. Several medical studies show that amenorrheic women and those who have below 10% body fat may have a hard time getting pregnant.

Amenorrhea may also lead to osteoporosis, an ailment which decreases bone density, making the bones vulnerable to fracture and other injuries. Bones usually become brittle when people are much older, but some young women, especially the ones who experience amenorrhea develop brittle bones at a very young age. A report released by the National Osteoporosis Foundation concluded that one in two women over 50 may encounter an osteoporosis related injury in their lifetime.
You must not only consider the possible health risks but also the potential legal consequences, before you buy steroids. It can be extremely dangerous to buy steroids. Anabolic steroids can lead you to jails, or strict federal penalties. So, you should be very careful while you go to buy steroids. You must know the potential legal consequences, before you buy steroids.

Anabolic steroids, you know, are classified as controlled substances under U.S. federal law and the laws of many states. It is a federal crime to use/possess/distribute/buy steroids without proper prescriptions from doctors. The Anabolic steroids Control Act of 1990 places anabolic steroids in the same legal class – Schedule III – as amphetamines, methamphetamines, opium, and morphine.

Simply the possession of any of Schedule III substances is a federal felony that could fetch you federal punishment up to one year in prison and/or a minimum fine of $1,000. If you are caught possessing anabolic steroids with a previous conviction for certain offenses, including any drug or narcotic crimes, you could get imprisonment of at least 15 days and up to two years, and a minimum fine of $2,500. With two or more such previous convictions, you could face imprisonment of not less than 90 days but not more than three years, and a minimum fine of $5,000, just for simply possessing any of Schedule III substances.

It’s not just about possessing Schedule III substances, but selling these substances is also a serious crime. Selling steroids or possessing them with intent to sell, is a federal crime. If you buy steroids, and possess them with intent to sell, you could get punishment up to five years in prison (with at least two additional years of supervised release) and/or a $250,000 fine. If you commit such a violation after a prior conviction for a drug offense, you could faces up to ten years imprisonment (with at least four additional years of special parole) and/or increased fines. Thus, you commit a federal crime when you buy steroids for non therapeutic use, without proper prescriptions from doctors.

Often, you feel that it’s pretty safe to buy steroids thru internet, but it’s not true. The Federal Postal inspectors also monitor the U.S. mails. Suspicious packages coming from overseas can be examined. The domestic parcels from California and the Southwest to sites on the East Coast are often monitored. If illegal drugs are found in your mail, the U.S. Postal inspectors will often arrange a “controlled delivery” of the package to you. If you accept the package, police agents with a search warrant can search out your place for additional drugs. So, it’s not risk free to buy steroids thru mail order. If you get arrested for possessing/buying anabolic steroids, you are advised to stay silent until you consult your lawyer. You should not answer any questions until you speak to your lawyer.
