What Master’s degree would give me the most opportunity to have a career that I can work from home?

Question by Lindsay: What Master’s degree would give me the most opportunity to have a career that I can work from home?
I am disabled so that I cannot always leave the house. I have a BA that doesn’t open many doors. I want to go back to get my Master’s, but I want it to be in a subject that will actually help me to become gainfully employed. Any ideas?

There are many freelance writing jobs available. Or you can start your own blog using wordpress.com and when you are getting enough views,you can use Google adsense to display ads and earn money from it. Or you can register on elance.com and find freelance writing jobs. The reason why there are so few full time writing jobs around is because they are all given to freelance contractors. So you can defnitely make a living from it, eventually.You can also search for any short social media marketing course in your area. If you learn it, then you can become a freelance social media marketeer. Other options are to learn graphic design [adobe photoshop, illustrator, indesign] or web design[html, css, javascript] and do freelance jobs on your own. Good luck… If you are interested in web design, go to www.w3schools.com, you will find free tutorial on html, css, javascript and all web design technologies.

Nations Largest Country Music Talent Competition Names Olson Brothers Best Songwriters

Olympia, WA (PRWEB) January 02, 2014

The largest and longest-running country music talent search in the nation, the Texaco Country Showdown, has named the Olson Brothers of Olympia, WA, the Grand Prize Winners in a songwriting competition to find the best independent country music songwriter in the United States. Hundreds of musicians competed, tens of thousands of votes were counted and a panel of country music experts made the final decision to name the Olson Brothers song, Sunrise, as the Grand Champion. Brothers Luke Olson, 20, and Isaac Olson, 22, have earned $ 5,000 as well as a trip to be introduced at the Nashvilles 32nd annual Texaco Country Showdown and consult with professionals in the music industry.

We have grown up doing everything together and are very passionate about music, said Luke Olson. We are thrilled to bring the national award to Washington.

The Texaco Country Showdown is America’s largest Country music talent show. It’s designed to find the most promising country music talent in the nation and to give these performers a chance to launch their professional music careers. Songwriting competitors submit a recording of their song to the Showdown website, and the top five songs chosen by the public are evaluated by a panel of Nashville music professionals, and they choose a monthly winner. Those winning songs advance to a final competition round each November, where an esteemed panel of songwriting greats chooses the Grand Prize Winner.

Luke a business and music major at Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) in Tacoma, is the bands lead singer and plays the acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, and records the bands music. Isaac is an engineering major at Washington State University in Pullman, plays the mandolin, acoustic guitar, and writes songs, also sings lead vocals, and promotes for the band. They began writing songs together and performing as The Olson Brothers in 2011. After adding Nate Collins on Bass and James Blackburn on drums, the Olson Bros Band began playing live shows across the state in 2013.

The Olsons winning song, Sunrise, was inspired by views of Mt. Rainier from the highway during Lukes 6 a.m. commute to Tacoma from Olympia each morning. One morning as I was getting so bogged down by my classes and homework, and I was just in a terrible mood and way behind. I looked outside my car and saw the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen in my life, with Mt. Rainier in the background. The sight was the most breathtaking thing I had ever beheld, and it was one of those moments where it puts thing in perspective. I was so inspired by the sight that I skipped class that morning to watch the rest of the sunrise, and thats where came up with the idea and wrote a chunk of the song.

Sunrise helped The Olson Brothers to win the Battle of the Bands at Capital Lakefair in 2013, and the song went on to win the Texaco Country Showdown for the month of July, and the national songwriting championship at years end.

The Olson Brothers Band will continue to play shows all over Washington State, including one at The Brick in Roslyn, WA on Jan. 3. Registration for the free admission event is available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/539159. They and plan to record songs at a professional studio while they are in Nashville for the Texaco Country Showdown Jan. 16, and they hope to release their first professionally-recorded album in 2014.

Wed like to thank our family, friends, and fans for taking the time to vote for our song, and for always believing in us, said Isaac Olson. For now, we are gonna celebrate. Were goin to Nashville! said Luke.

How can I start an online business selling backpacking goods?

Question by : How can I start an online business selling backpacking goods?
I am looking to start a business that deals exclusively with backpacking gear: (backpacks, shells, tents, sleeping bags, emergency supplies, etc.). I am unsure if I should begin as a drop ship site or purchase the inventory initially. Ideally, I would spend around $ 10,000 to get this project off the ground. Anyone have suggestions?

Question about aspergers?

Question by darkcoder: Question about aspergers?
I pretty much know all the symptoms of aspergers, but I was wondering if all of them have trouble with speech as I was curious if I have the condition and don’t display this symptom. By trouble with speech I mean being repetitive and sort of overemphasizing their words.

Answer by Jerry
Some do, but not all. Quiz: http://www.rdos.net/eng/ See http://myweb.usf.edu/~begeiger/as-symptoms.html & http://www.aspergers.com & http://www.udel.edu/bkirby/asperger/support.html & http://www.aspergerssociety.org/index20cause.htm?gclid=CPCNguvVtJ0CFZMwpAodVX4mkQ & http://www.tonyattwood.com.au/links.html There are courses, where Aspies are taught the interpretation of social cues, and behaviour appropriate to certain circumstances. Google: “asperger’s syndrome; training courses (your location)” There are also books on social skills; “People Skills,” written by Robert Bolton, Ph.D. The book help will help with communication in all areas. It helps when you have anxiety in “people” situations. Others are: Asperger’s From the Inside Out: A Supportive and Practical Guide for Anyone with Asperger’s Syndrome by Michael John Carley and Ed.D., Peter F. Gerhardt, & The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome by Tony Attwood, & The OASIS Guide to Asperger Syndrome: Completely Revised and Updated: Advice, Support, Insight, and Inspiration by Patricia Romanowski.

Ask at your bookstore, or go to www.amazon.com If you have difficulty looking people in the eye, try focusing on the bridge of their nose, for 2 – 3 seconds only (or you may be thought to be staring, or, at the very least, rude) then look away for 5 – 10 seconds, then repeat. Most people are suggestible, to some degree, so you could either seek professional hypnotherapy, or, quicker, cheaper, and more conveniently: hypnosisdownloads.com has ones on: making eye contact & conversation starter, and: overcome shyness and social anxiety & meeting people, etc. Because of their borderline obsessive interests, and lack of social skills, many Aspies stay indoors a great deal, and don’t get sufficient daily exposure to sunlight to produce adequate levels of vitamin D3.

A deficiency in this very important vitamin can lead to depression, as can the social exclusion, and sometimes even bullying (see http://your-mental-health.weebly.com/1.html and page B) that they experience. Take at least 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it! In the winter months, if not getting sufficient daily exposure to strong light, see http://www.mercola.com SEARCHBAR: enter: “vitamin D3″.

Go to a doctor and ask for a 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, blood test. When you get the results, don’t follow the typical “normal” reference range, as these are too low. The OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 45-52 ng/ml (115-128 nmol/l)”. The company which tests your levels has to be one of those using the correct form of test, and this topic is addressed via the searchbar at Mercola.com – “vitamin D3; testing”.
