How to Buy a Cheap Laptop

Technorati Tags: ,,

Buying laptops on the cheap is half art and half mathematics. Dont confuse cheap laptops with low quality, but rather associate them with a good bargain. So the question becomes: It is important to remember not to sacrifice quality or functionality for the sake of price.

One of the best ways to ensure you find a cheap laptop is to make sure you do not pay for any laptop features that you do not need or will not use. If you only need a laptop for its word processing capabilities and web browsing then paying for processing power and memory required for gaming could be a waste of money.

If you have the slightest inclination that you could need more memory for your laptop in a few years down the line then it may be worth buying a laptop with expandable functionality. Whilst it would be cheaper to buy a laptop that memory cannot be added to today it could prove to be more expensive in the long run needing to replace your laptop due to running out of memory.

Cheap laptops often do not use the latest technology, which is fine for basic computing needs. However, if you require a laptop for more than internet browsing and word processing then perhaps spending more on a laptop today may push back the need to buy your next laptop by a few years.

Some laptop components such as CPUs and video cards generally cannot be upgraded except for the very highest quality laptops from top tier vendors. The hardware that can be upgraded on a cheap laptop is typically limited to the hard drive(s), memory, and optical disc drive(s).

If one of your laptop needs is gaming, consider a last-generation video chipset or lower-performing variant of a current generation video chipset. Laptops are not generally known for providing the best gaming experiences. One can easily spend thousands of dollars trying to make an innately power efficient laptop compete with a desktop that is not hampered by the same power or thermal limitations.

One does not have to settle for a generic brand to get a decent price. Inexpensive, customized laptops from manufacturers such as Dell, Gateway, and HP can all be ordered online. Better yet, these very same manufacturers tend to sell last generation laptops at significant discounts until they clear their inventory. Most of these companies also offer refurbished models with factory warranties at incredible discounts.

When shopping for cheap laptops it pays to remember: the easiest way to wind up looking at a selection of laptops that are too expensive is to not honestly evaluate ones needs appropriately. The flip side of that is that underestimating ones computing needs will typically result in a selection of unattractive, cheap laptops that live up to their cheap designation in the most negative sense of the word.

47,000 youth to get vocational training

Technorati Tags: ,

ISLAMABAD: The government will provide vocational training to 47,765 youth in the next two and half years under a President�s programme titled �Funni Maharat� at an estimated cost of Rs1.17 billion.
Executive Director National Vocational & Technical Education Commission (NAVTEC), Khalid Khan Toru, said that NAVTEC was establishing 130 vocational institutes in 79 uncovered and backward tehsils of Punjab, Sindh, NWFP, Balochistan, Azad Kashmir and FATA in which 47,765 youth would be imparted with technical education and vocational training in two and a half years.
He was speaking as a chief guest at a prize distribution ceremony at the conclusion of the First National Skills Competition for Women 2009, held at the Government Polytechnic Institute for Women on Saturday.
Toru said that the federal government was following a well thought-out policy for women development and wanted their empowerment in every sphere of life. �This policy is producing encouraging results.�
The Ministry of Women�s Development is currently implementing a five-year project nationwide with financial support of $10 million from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to promote economic, political and social empowerment of women at national, provincial and district levels, he added.
Talking about the Prime Minister�s �Hunarmand Pakistan Programme�, Toru said that NAVTEC under this programme was sponsoring short-term skilled development courses in which four areas were being given priority which included construction, agriculture (livestock and dairy development), IT and telecommunications, and services or hospitality.
He informed that under the programme, 120,000 youth have either completed their technical and vocational education and training, or are currently under training.
He foresees skilled workers playing a major role in future economic development. Citing the examples of Japan, China, Singapore and Malaysia where skilled workers played a vital role in shaping their economies, the chairman said that we have to produce highly skilled force like these countries to achieve sustainable economic progress and prosperity.

How we can close the education gap?

Technorati Tags: ,,

At the dawn of a new century that promises great rewards for excellence in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, American children, and minorities in particular,

remain behind their global counterparts. The good news is that opportunities abound to close this gap once and for all.

President Barack Obama has set forth an aggressive plan to make higher education and workforce training more readily available. While the president is attacking the need to grow the nation’s workforce, here at home, Houston Community College provides an effective and affordable bridge to STEM fields and is actively reaching out to high school students with innovative programs such as the Male Minority Initiative.

However, we will never close this gap without shared responsibility. Now is the time for communities, teachers and parents to come together to encourage their children, and for students to work harder and dedicate themselves to their own education and our country’s future.

According to the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) released in December 2008 by the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, U.S. fourth-graders ranked in the 70th percentile in math among 36 countries surveyed, while U.S. eighth-graders ranked in the 80th percentile among 48 countries surveyed. In science, U.S. fourth-graders ranked in the 78th percentile, and eighth-graders ranked in the 77th percentile.

Overall, U.S. students trail those in Hong Kong SAR, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Japan, the Russian Federation and England in both fields at both grade levels. And while the TIMSS report indicates that U.S. students have improved since 1995 in both math and science, we must do better than a “C” average.

To ensure that our country continues to thrive and innovate in today’s global marketplace, we must fill the shortfall in our scientific and technical capabilities, and there are ways we can all help.

As a professional in the STEM fields, you can mentor, teach or simply encourage youngsters in your community to pursue a science, technology, engineering or math major. Houston Community College has a number of innovative initiatives that allow professionals in the field to assist and inspire youngsters in these fields, especially those in our Hispanic and African-American communities, only a fraction of whom are academically eligible to seriously pursue engineering and other STEM fields at the college level.

As a student in the STEM fields, consider teaching as a career choice after graduation. Research proves that students excel in math and science when they are taught by teachers with a degree in that subject area. Obama’s plan to improve education in the STEM fields includes a provision to recruit math and science degree graduates to the teaching profession and support efforts to help these teachers learn from professionals in the field.

As a youth or guidance counselor, enlighten students regarding the opportunities in a STEM field, not only for career advancement but also for breakthroughs that benefit our world in medicine, alternative energy, and technology. The new administration will soon launch an online database to provide information about financial aid opportunities available in the science and technology fields through the federal government as well as public and private resources.

For those who are unemployed, consider a career or additional training in the STEM fields. Recent changes to federal aid for a college education or training may allow you to keep your state unemployment benefits while going to school. College financial aid officers have also been instructed to expand their use of “professional judgment” to provide assistance to unemployed workers.

For the rest of us — parents, teachers, and community members ­— let us encourage, support and assist those who dedicate themselves to the STEM fields. Together we can restore the promise of America’s public education system and ensure that our children once again lead the world in achievement, creativity and success.

Alabama Board of Education to vote on chancellor's academic qualifications

Technorati Tags: ,,

Should the chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system be required to have an advanced degree, as the college presidents must? Or is executive leadership experience more important, given the system's growing emphasis on work-force development?

The State Board of Education is torn over those questions, with some members rejecting a draft announcement for the position that requires only a bachelor's degree, along with a minimum five years of senior-level management experience.

It does say a graduate or earned doctorate is preferred, but to board member Mary Jane Caylor of Huntsville, that simply won't suffice.

"That would be, I think, very embarrassing for the board and the state to put out an advertisement for the chancellor of Alabama's two-year colleges and only require a bachelor's degree. That's embarrassing and unacceptable," Caylor said Friday.

"A master's at the least, and strongly favoring an earned doctorate from an accredited institution should be considered," she said.

The board will vote on the requirements at its monthly meeting Thursday and also is scheduled to select an executive search firm to assist in the national hunt for Bradley Byrne's replacement. Byrne, who has a law degree, led the system for two years and resigned last month to run for governor in 2010.

Presidents at Alabama's 25 community colleges are required to have at least masters' degrees but nearly all have doctorates. Board members who are opposed to the minimal requirements said it wouldn't be right to demand less of the person who will be their boss.

"How are we requiring presidents and folks who teach in our colleges to have more academic training than we're requiring for the person at the top?" Ethel Hall of Fairfield asked.

And Ella Bell of Montgomery said she's worried the low requirements purposefully havebeen tailored to fit those of possible candidates that some already have in mind.

"I would surely have to believe that based on what we require for our executive level management staff," she said, adding that more than half of the department's staff would be eligible under the proposal.

(2 of 2)

But Randy McKinney of Gulf Shores, who helped shape the draft, said he favors the proposed plan because the chancellor's role involves much more involvement in the business and training world than it used to, and academics are no longer its sole responsibility.

"I'm looking for leadership skills. I mean, technically someone can have a doctorate in something that's not even related to management of people and they would qualify," he said.

"We have millions of dollars that we oversee in workforce education and adult training and those things are a very different skill set than someone who is trained to be an academic leader of an institution," he said. "That's why this has more the look and feel of a CEO with several different segments under that organizational structure."

Besides, McKinney said, "Bill Gates wouldn't even be able to be a chancellor" if the degree requirement was raised.

"And I would submit to you that Bill Gates probably has the skill set to be able to do that," he told his fellow board members.

Nearly 12,000 DEd seats up for grabs

20 Jun 2009, 0501 hrs IST, Vaibhav Ganjapure, TNN

Technorati Tags: ,,

NAGPUR: Nearly 12,000 seats are up for grabs for diploma i

n education (DEd) course in the Nagpur division, the admissions of which will begin

from July 2. These seats are part of nearly 72,000 seats that  exists in over 1,100 colleges in state.
According to highly-reliable sources in MSCERT (Maharashtra State Council of Educational Research and Training), Nagpur has highest number of seats at 5,692 with Chandrapur second with 1,775 seats in the division.
Though delayed by almost a month, the centralized admission process will start with distribution of forms from July 2. The last date of submission of forms will be July 11. The counselling for admission rounds will continue in August and September and colleges will formally start its academic session from October 1.
The Civil Lines-based District Institute of Education and Training will conduct admission process in the city.
Sources attributed the delay in admissions to flip-flop of the government on deciding on eligibility criteria. First the government had announced that it will raise the criteria for admission to graduation from present class XII. The move was apparently brought with a thought that the students do not ‘mature’ after finishing class XII and one year of DEd.
Sources added that every year, the DEd admission process starts before state board’s HSC results. But this year, even the results of BSc, BA and BCom of university were already out and hence more number of candidates are expected to rush for admissions.

Schools establish future for all of us

Sunday, June 21, 2009

The Great Recession is reaping a bitter harvest of job losses and deep budget cuts throughout Georgia’s public education and training system. Although federal stimulus dollars are providing some temporary relief, more than $1 billion in state funding has been slashed from Georgia’s K-12 and post-secondary education budgets.

Budget shortfalls have forced educational leaders to institute furloughs and lay-offs. “Non-essential” classes in music and foreign languages are disappearing. As Georgia’s budget crisis deepens, economists are making dire predictions of continuing declines in state revenues. Absent a quicker-than-expected rebound, additional federal stimulus or new sources of revenue, more draconian budget cuts are inevitable.

Georgia’s public education and training system is standing at the crossroads between continued progress or a return to mediocrity. Further reductions will cripple the development of Georgia’s 21st century workforce. Now is not the time to drastically reduce investments in our children’s future.

Ironically, this severe economic downturn presents Georgia with an unprecedented opportunity to increase our competitive advantage by improving the quality of our most valuable economic development resource — our work force.

A thorough debate must be had regarding the potential impact of additional budget cuts to Georgia’s public education and training system. A critical question is: Should Georgia’s political, educational and business leaders support accessing alternative or new funding streams to protect and improve the quality of public education in our state? The result of this critical and long-delayed debate will shape and define Georgia’s economic future.

I am convinced that Georgia’s return to economic growth and prosperity will be dependent on the expansion of state education and training opportunities. Despite the downturn, strategic investments in cost-effective programs will assure the development of a skilled and productive work force. I offer three examples where increased funding will pay huge dividends:

? Expand parental involvement initiatives. Fledgling school-based parent involvement programs are critical to the long-term development of our children and educational system. Students whose parents are involved in their education have higher high school and college graduation rates, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

? Promote increased respect for school-to-work initiatives. Georgia’s high school co-enrollment programs, apprenticeships, internships, technical, career and agricultural programs are important tools in preparing students for the work force. Programs such as the Georgia Department of Labor’s Jobs for Georgia Graduates (JGG) help reduce the dropout rate. JGG provides “at risk” students with pre-employment and job development training. In the 2008 school year, 95 percent of JGG’s 794 seniors earned a high school diploma.

? Strengthen Georgia’s technical and two-year colleges. They are solid options for high school graduates not interested in or ready to enter a four-year college. These institutions are academically sound, less expensive and graduates start their careers sooner than four-year college graduates. These schools also aid adults seeking a career change or new skills.

VIEWPOINT: No child left behind -- except at EHOVE

By MARIE HILDEBRANDT Register columnist | Friday, June 19, 2009 9:08 AM EDT

For 131 area high school sophomores, there will be no room at the inn come September.

EHOVE Joint Vocational School has notified area high schools that of the 586 teens who applied for admission to the school, only 455 have been accepted for next year’s programs.

Guidance counselors at the school say there are specific reasons some students are rejected by EHOVE: discipline problems; academic problems, which would make it difficult to graduate from high school with the required credits; and in some instances, the program has been filled and there are no open seats for applicants.

Counselors say there are remedial summer programs students can attend to fulfill the required credit hours and that then admission will be considered. They also say those students who meet EHOVE standards, but who are rejected because the program is filled, are placed on waiting lists and might still be able to attend classes in September.

According to high school principals, the application process which allows EHOVE to turn down students seeking admission to vocational programs has been in practice for at least 10 years.

That EHOVE can turn students away from its doors is news to the average person, especially in light of the fact that the bulk of its funding comes from property taxes.

It doesn’t seem right.

But the problem is not unique to EHOVE. Joint vocational schools throughout the state are now considered “career centers”. The emphasis is changing from post high school employment to technical training leading to post secondary education.

Vocational education in the United States dates back to Colonial America when children without academic opportunities were offered apprenticeships for on the job training.

Over the centuries the evolution of vocational education has taken many turns. In the 1880s industrial training became prevalent and during the early 1900s the federal government saw the need to provided industrial education in urban areas and agricultural education in the rural areas. The government defined vocational education as training to help nonacademic students obtain jobs after high school.

In 1963 the federal Vocational Education Act provided for the construction of vocational education school buildings and broadened the definition of vocational education to include occupational programs.

School-to-work became the theme in the 1980s for those students not interested in higher education, but vocational education also started transitioning into links with academic education including secondary and post secondary schools.

Today, vocational schools define themselves as career centers. Advances in technology; the opportunities for jobs in technical fields; the decline of the industrial base; and the limited number of industrial jobs are all factors that have contributed to the change.

Logically, on one hand, it makes sense for vocational schools to transition into career centers.

But on the other hand, there are still 131 teens in Erie, Huron and Ottawa counties who are being told, “Forget the future, there is no future here for you at EHOVE.”

What happens to these kids? If the programs in traditional high schools are inadequate, and if the kids are not college bound, and if there is no place for them at EHOVE, what is the alternative? And, how did this happen right underneath our noses without public awareness?

This is very hard to accept. At a place in time when we like to believe that no child will be left behind, we are leaving children behind. Voters in the school districts serviced by EHOVE have, in good faith, continued to approve levies for funding the joint vocational school for 40 years. But the truth is out now. Now we find some of our kids aren’t good enough for EHOVE and that the “Iron Fist” of EHOVE can accept or reject any kid it feels doesn’t measure up to the school’s standards.

It’s a dirty, rotten shame!

Area superintendents and area high school principals are reluctant to talk about the problem. It is an issue they say they have discussed in state-wide meetings, but, they say, the state hasn’t listened to their concerns.

Some state officials had better start to listen. Maybe it is time for the electorate to join with school officials to add strength to the cause.

WIC Training and Education Program

Stanbio Laboratory LP has created a new Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Training and Education Program designed to help expectant mothers get their hemoglobin levels checked and take advantage of proper nutrition.

The Boerne-based medical testing and clinical diagnostic device manufacturer announced the program during the last month’s National WIC Association’s 26th Annual Conference in Nashville.

Stanbio manufactures the HemoPoint H2 Test System, which is used to test hemoglobin levels in patients with a single drop of whole blood. Hemoglobin testing is routinely performed in blood banks, public health clinics, intensive care units and trauma units. Point-of-care hemoglobin testing is also ordered by OB/GYNs and general and pediatric physicians.

Stanbio created the WIC program as a way to effectively market its HemoPoint device as a complete system to WIC providers. The company is working to provide participant and clinician education on the value of hemoglobin testing and its direct relationship to nutrition. The company is also including recipes on iron-rich foods and information on the importance of iron during child development to prevent anemia.

Stanbio manufactures and sells medical testing and diagnostic devices for clinical chemistry, pregnancy, drug abuse, serology, urinalysis and hemoglobin testing.

Don’t have a career goal in mind?

You want the greatest return on your education investment. If you are still deciding on a career, here are some questions and options to consider.

Education Vs. Training

Many people do not understand the difference between education and training. The study will provide information and communicate the internship. Training is about building skills and practices. The children of today, it's best to train generations of uneducated workers.

This problem if we do not educate them before the train, they will lead to problems. It's important you learn how to drive. You need to have knowledge of the law and training and then go after the real joke is that you can learn about the birds and bees - if not, in fact, research conducted in training can bring. Toward desirable results!

Mark Flores, Director of Operations for pariah E. Cheese 'S macaroni and cheese using examples to show the difference. We have Mac and cheese, all done many times in our lives, but if we do not follow the instructions exactly, we may get macaroni soup, macaroni or other Krisfi what we intend. Then we show how education and training to be consistent?

Manual. Boooooooooring! We want the document, but fun! Total tons of pictures and minimal text, so it is more ridiculous line of view, more people remember what they had seen what they read. So, instead of gathering data is better. In addition, it can translate to other languages

Video better than reading for most people, but they should be short (3 - 5 minutes maximum) with tons of virtual image changes. Current employees are used to watching CNN talk to a video trailer. Well below the forecast and the side - when all four online chats with their friends. Long, jilt the video to lose interest quickly. And see what you are doing to learn. You can see the next section later.

Online Gold White Castle jail, sea island shrimp house, Buffalo Wild Wings is missing and E. Cheese 'in general or the use of electronic test. Because it was done at a rate of speed of learning. Caution: As we have seen e-mail letter will not be too easy to read computer. The message store that will be lower. Review the questions to create a border for the Study to promote the good way to replace the video and print, but not "training."

Experiment, we've looked at all the hate! To guarantee the stability of the test bar and keep the image simple. (How many pictures as possible), and many choose to buy or use of real-lie format to ensure the most consistent order our employees, not fill in the blank or essay - make sure that basic test. Are all training the same way real-grade test?

Above all a form of "training" is the only true education, but most think he's training director. We do not accept the license of the driver after reading books, watching videos and testing - we have trained our staff to show before we are allowed to drive. Education is evil, but requires that before

We follow the same format with employees? Some companies do not - we only remember that a bunch of useless information to join a small care. Less, we're ready. You should check the skills to work and will test once again in the future, know the job and the two completely different things - and announce guests.

Proficiency testing

Employs a new display showing the skills for the management of two things: how the training received in the employee can perform the job. We all think we can get the same definition of "blessing participants" or "suggestive selling" But when we see the workers to do all that we find throughout the Board. If you do not coach them through the skills that they will do what they see. Other restaurant (which usually is not good). All these validations conducted between 90 to 180 days in the usual psychological

People train people that there is only a good employee does not mean they are good practice. Appropriate tools of knowledge will help, but the final result is shown coaching, training and validation of employee skills. To explain this point of the training team to train you can tie on the shoes. Or wear the shirt. Act like you know about this?. The point is simple, because we can make the bed - such as burgers or ringing up orders - but incredibly difficult to train someone else how to do.
