Video: Is A College Degree Worth The Cost?

Have you been thinking about going to college? 

If you're fresh out of high school it's what many people expect you to do.  Right?

Or maybe you've been caught up in the lousy economy and think to yourself...if I only had a degree.

Well...before you do you rush off to get one you might wanna watch this interesting video posted by The Peter Schiff Show  on YouTube.

They found "graduates with degrees in mathematics, robotics, neuroscience, engineering, accounting, business administration, economics, biology, communications, graphic design, marketing, and linguistics" working as door-men, bouncers, bartenders, bike-taxi drivers etc.

And worst of all, many of them are under thousands of dollars in crushing debt for student loans.

Still taken from the video - Captions added

I certainly wouldn't tell anyone not to get a degree...but rather to research and carefully select an area of that you know has plenty of good employment opportunities!

AND to avoid student loans!

Yes...not taking student loans may mean you'll have to work your way through may not be able to attend that $25,000.00 a semester school...and it may take you longer to earn a degree...but in the end you won't be saddled with a fortune in debt.

Also be very cautious about those trade schools running ads on TV all day and all night:  "Become a hairstylist... a dental assistant...a graphic artist...a forensic specialist...etc."  I've personally known people who were left with nothing but bills and a worthless diploma after going to one. 

Make sure you ask about job placement too.  Ask how many from each class are employed in that field after graduating...and if they offer placement assistance.  If they get squirley when answering these questions...RUN, FORREST, RUN!!!!!

Amazing Video: Climb To The Top Of A 1,768 Foot Tower!

"Helmet Cam":  Nearing the top!

Imagine going to work where it's your job to climb to the top of a 1,768 foot tower, using an attached harness only on short breaks during the ascent! 

While I watched this, I thought about how one small mis-step could be the beginning of a very fast trip down to the ground!!

There may be more dynamic videos people have posted around the internet...but I found myself holding my breath through most of this one!!

Funny Video: Britain's Got Talent 2009 - Eugene

Have you ever judged someone by the way they look? 

Me neither!  ; )

But it mighta been easy to do in 2009,  when a librarian named Eugene decided to enter the competition on Britain's Got Talent.

In fact when Eugene took the stage, judge Piers Morgan gave him the 'red buzzer' before his "act" even began.

As you'll see in this video he went on to win over not only the crowd but the judges as well.

I'll let you watch the video and then I'll share a little secret about it below.



Eugene is watching...are you sure you wanna
know the secret before you watch the video?

 The little secret:  Eugene is a creation of dentist and aspiring comic, Adam Gitlin.

Video: Amazing Talent - Twelve Year Old Guitarist Owns Stage

I love seeing young kids accomplishing major things!

In this case, I found a video of twelve Year Old Guitarist RONY JANEČEK ripping it up live on Slovakia's Got Talent!

He has an amazing stage presence and best of all, as seen in the screen captures from the video, he looks like he was really having fun!

Video: Flower duet by Léo Delibes - Vocalists Anna Netrebko & Elina Garanca

Clément Philibert Léo Delibes

I love this beautiful duet!

Sous le dôme épais ("Flower Duet"), written by French composer Léo Delibes (21 February 1836 – 16 January 1891) has been used in movies, television shows and commercials...and so while most people couldn't name it or it's will seem familiar to many.

If you listen to the beginning and it doesn't seem familiar to you, either wait or fast-forward to 1:19...which is the most well known (and used) section.

That this version was performed "live" with vocalists Anna Netrebko and Elina Garanca just makes it all the more beautiful.

Hope you enjoy it!
