How to write a car review

So, back to my first blog! And what kind of review site would this be, if my first blog was about anything other than “how to write a car review”. Since we launched back in March I have been asked this question over and over. Many people have shied away from reviewing their past or current cars  because they:  1. Don’t have enough time  2. Don’t know where to start 3. Don’t know what to write Don’t get me wrong, these are all great reasons to not write a review,…

If we can’t talk about racism in education, how will we address racial inequity in education?

Advancing racial equity is central to ensuring every student in North Carolina has a sound basic education, particularly given the shifting racial demographics in our state. Earlier this year, Education First facilitated a community of practice (CoP) that included leaders across the state in discussion about private funding in public education with a focus on racial equity. As we concluded our meetings in the spring, national and statewide discussions which aim to regulate how racism and antiracism are taught (e.g., regarding critical race theory) in public schools had begun to impact how we talk…

Abstract A body of theoretical and practical research suggests technology innovation is the driving force for enterprise survival and development and that maintaining business ethics is an important guarantee in sustaining these enterprises developments.

How Remote Education is Evolving During the Crisis

Over the last decade, online education has grown significantly, especially for adult learners who want to earn a degree or certificate while working full-time. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reported 6.6 million students enrolled in distance education courses at postsecondary institutions during the fall of 2017.

Coronavirus | 3 personal finance authors on how to cope with this market chaos

I believe the technical term for what we have been experiencing in the financial markets is: Aargh! (‘Bloodsuckingly bad’ also works.) I’m not sure how much it helps, but I’ve been through something like this before, during the market meltdown of 2008, when the S& P 500 fell more than 38 percent in just that year. But most millennials, the people born from 1981 to 1996, have not experienced these kind of losses as investors. How should they be thinking about their financial future? To find out, I asked the…

Scotland coined the term Silicon Glen to denote its tech growth zone just outside Edinburgh and beyond, Utah has Silicon Slopes and Dubai has Silicon Oasis. Logically enough then, Israel went for Silicon Wadi as the term to symbolize the location of its tech business hub, with the term ‘wadi’ meaning dry desert river bed in Arabic and colloquial Hebrew. But why should Israel have shown its mettle in the tech market? What drove this region…

How to travel to Cuba (Yes, you can!)

“I’d love to go to Cuba — but the sanctions are back on, so I guess I can’t,” a friend of mine opined recently after perusing my Instagram pics of the trip to the famed Caribbean island over New Year’s. This is not an uncommon sentiment. Ever since President Trump reinstituted trade, commercial and economic embargoes against Cuba in 2018, American travel to the country has dropped precipitously — but you can still go. In fact, airlines like Jet Blue, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines have direct flights from cities like New…

How to travel by train – and ditch the plane

A string of horrifying climate-related disasters has brought a distinctly environmental theme to many people’s New Year resolutions. Many have chosen to reduce their carbon footprint by flying less, or cutting out planes completely. Flygskam – the Swedish word for “flight-shame” – has become commonplace. In August, Swedish climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg set an example by crossing the Atlantic in a zero-emissions yacht. If she had made the return journey from the UK to New York by air, she would have emitted 11% of the average annual emissions for someone in the…
