Comment on Relevant Subjects by Admin.
I would suggest Biotechnology,Chemistry,Managing Environmental Resources were the three most relevant subjects to an ecology degree.
However, in trying to determine what you do with the ecology degree, then maybe you should take these points into consideration:
Say you decided to work in the media industry within the field of ecology (an investigative reporter for example), then expressing your ideas would be important, so, maybe two science related subjects and an english related subject would be a wise option.
Or if you wanted to help others getting employment in an ecology related career, then choosing the employability options as well as the more directly relevant subjects would make sense.
Unless you are completely commited to actual field & laboratory work in relation to ecology then to add on a subject that you can use in relation to ecology as well as expanding your options would, I believe, be a good idea.
The choices you make would depend on what you propose to do once you have the Ecology degree.

Depends on what you want to study after leaving school , but Religion has limited application and I would replace it with either a science subject or an English subject Speak to your careers teacher for more help.
Oh, yes. Painting, and all the other arts are very much relevant to today’s society. It’s wonderful you are drawn to Da Vinci and Michelangelo D’Buonarotti. They tend to show up in a lot of places. Da Vinci’s 559th birthday was this week. And still we love his amazing work.
If you want to paint realistically, be sure to find a college that teaches that. Most college art history classes begin with Da Vinci, but you’ll have to take at least art history classes in most colleges. Be sure to take some art history classes from other areas of the world to broaden your view of art in the world. That helps you to identify what is relevant to today’s world.
You can indeed paint realistically and be relevant. That is your journey. As it is for all of us.Your education will give you a foundation to begin this journey.
If you love art, you will find a way to make money at it. You might keep your job for a while to be sure you are providing for yourself. But once you find your muse, your relevancy, your passion, your issues, you will begin to grow your true art career.
Technology does have it’s own place in art. Did you know you can do realistic painting in art programs? I have seen some amazing figure drawing, that was printed on a plotter, by students in the art program I was in. You can use computers to produce your work in any style. Or you can produce techo-themed art by painting it, too. The subject matter, materials, and work is yours. It your method, your concepts that create the art, not the machines. They only follow your direction. Doing that is something you could experiment with in school.
Pursue your dream. As you are just starting, I recommend you look into art festivals. One you can check first is Bayou City Art Festival. Then look into Art Basel in Miami, and any others you can find around the country. Start visiting galleries and museums and asking lots of questions.
Some newsletters you can subscribe to for free are FlavorPill, and ArtDaily.
Oh, yes, history is very relevant.
If you read enough of it, you eventually understand the overall patterns of political power relationships and can see how they repeat themselves (with variations of course!) over and over again. With this insight, you can achieve a deeper understanding of today’s international politics.
A lot of people get turned off to history because in their beginning courses the have to learn the names of the principal actors of history and the dates of wars. This does not give people much insight into the nature of historical processes and quite understandably turns a lot of people off to historical studies.
When I was a freshman in college, we had to take a two-semester course on the history of Europe and the ancient world in the Middle East.
I didn’t get all that much from my first exposure to this material, but I kept on reading other histories of the Western World and other books on special topics, such as the history of Brazil, which I found very interesting–especially in the nineteenth century.
Eventually I became interested in other historical topics, such as the history of technology, the history of mathematics, and intellectual history, which is an excellent way to get an overall view of the way ideas have shaped civilizations, making it easier to branch out into specialized academic disciplines, such as philosophy.
By no means am I advocating that everyone should become interested in history. There are all sorts of worthy human activities, such as studying music in detail. But if you can overcome the way high-school introductory courses have turned you off to the subject, I am confident that in time you will be richly rewarded.

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.
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.

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.

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.
