$90k doesn’t feel like all that much when you hate …

Comment on Tuesday Trivia on Thursday by Admin.

$90k doesn’t feel like all that much when you hate what you’re doing. That said, $50k feels like even less if you hate what you’re doing, and you may come to hate teaching even more than IT or computing. You will never know, however, unless you try it. If you plan to teach at the high school level, be prepared to be disillusioned. In all probability, it will not work out like a Hallmark Movie Channel special. On the other hand, you may be one of those rare teachers who not only know their stuff, but know how to teach it AND who land in a school district with decent kids and supportive parents — a dream. Once you’ve had your fill of high school, you can move on to teaching in college, where more kids care about learning. In 30 years, you can retire from teaching and get a job in IT for 10 years to build up your retirement income or put your four boys through college. They’ll get free tuition at the college where you’re a professor, but they won’t want to go there. It’s life and more specifically; its YOUR life. Follow your dream. No one else knows you quite like you do, and it is certainly not “realistic” for someone to enter a field they dislike and succeed at it. I know. My guidance counselor told me I wasn’t “smart enough” to be a nurse, so I became a teacher. I hate teaching, or more specifically, I find children nothing but annoying and/or intimidating. Hated teaching; wasn’t my dream. Should have gone into any medical field. I’m a member of Mensa and could probably have squeaked through. Water under the bridge, unfortunately. Don’t let that be your sad story. “Oh, I went into IT because teaching doesn’t pay enough.” My IT friend who was making $100+k a year was laid off two years ago, still unemployed. Oops! Life happens, doesn’t it? Perhaps it would have been more realistic of him to go into teaching, because there’s such a shortage of math teachers in the country. Follow your heart.

“I’m Being Chased by cannibals”

Chase dreams is one of several common dream themes. As with most of the common dreams, they often stem from feelings of anxiety in your waking life. Running is an instinctive response to physical threats in your environment. In these dreams, you can be pursued by an attacker, an animal or an unknown figure, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. In turn, you run, hide or try to outwit your pursuer. Your actions in the dream parallel how you respond to pressure and cope with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting the situation, you are running away and avoiding it. Ask yourself who is the one chasing you so that you can gain understanding and insight on the source of your fears and anxieties.

The pursuer or attacker who is chasing you in your dream may also represent an aspect of yourself. Your own feelings of anger, jealousy, fear, and possibly love, can assume the appearance of threatening figure. The shadowy figure can also symbolize rejected characteristics of your self. You may be projecting these feelings onto the unknown chaser. Next time you have a chase dream, turn around and confront your pursuer. Ask them why they are chasing you. Perhaps you are running away from something. What are you trying to run from?

If you are the one doing the chasing, then the dream may highlight your drive and ambition to go after something you want. Or perhaps the dream suggests that you are falling behind and having to catch up with everyone else.

Consider the distance or gap between you and your pursuer. This indicates your closeness to the issue. If the pursuer is gaining on you, then it suggests that the problem is not going to go away. The problem will surround you until you confront and address it. However, if you are able to widen the gap between your pursuer, then the problem is becoming less and less of an issue. You are able to successful distance yourself from the problem. In essence, the problem is fading away.

A more direct analysis of chase dreams is the fear of being attacked. Such dreams are more common among women than men, who may feel physically vulnerable in the urban environment. These dreams are inspired by fears of violence and sexual assault in which we are so over-exposed from the media, which magnifies such fears.

To see a train in your dream, represents conformity. You are going along with what everyone else is doing. Or you have a need to do things in an orderly and sequential manner. In particular, if you see a freight train, then it refers to the burdens and problems that you are hauling around like those cannibals. It is also symbolic of manual labor. If you see a passenger train, then it relates to mental work. If you see or play with a model train in your dream dream, then it indicates that you want more control and power over your own life and where it is headed. Alternatively, your dream of trains may be a metaphor that you are “in training” for some event, job or goal.

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.

Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.

Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.

New York Skyline
