Corona Virus
Corona Virus

Now, there’s quite a few things we don’t know about this virus. But, there’s quite a few things we do. So, I wanted to talk about that and I want to tell you about some practical implications as well.

How you can protect yourself, how you can protect your family and this will be interesting if you’re a healthcare provider, health care professional or if you want to be a better informed a member of the public who wants to protect themselves.

The Corona Virus are remarkably small. They say it’s called a corona virus because of this crown shaped appearance because of the outer; the outer protein coat on it.

There’s lots of these viruses and it’s a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe respire to disease. This is in human now.

The corona virus as we’ll see comes from animals and in animals it causes a lot of different pathologies. About the disease state, as it affects humans and of course as it spreading from China at the moment, now we’ve known about quite a few corona viruses for a while. But, a new corona virus was identified in humans on the 29th of December 2019 and it was a novel virus. It is new; it hasn’t been seen before.

So, for that reason, this virus was assigned this name: 2019 novel coronavirus. What it does is it causes human respiratory viral infections. So, about infections of the respiratory system, now ofcourse, we can have upper respiratory infections in through the nose, the pharynx. It depends where you count upper.

Not normally upper would be above the level of the the larynx. So, upper respiratory infections and lower respiratory infections, bronchitis in the bronchial passages and infections lower down in the lung fields, in the alveoli, these are all respiratory infections and spine infections can be caused by bacteria or viruses and ofcourse these ones are caused by viruses like corona virus. But, there’s that, there’s a wide variety of viruses can cause human respiratory viral infections. So, the common cold for example is the different viruses can cause that a corona virus can cause common cold type symptoms.

But, the most common one is called a rhinovirus. For that, for the nose we get this characteristic; irritating runny nose and general malaise and the features of a common cold that you’re all familiar with well; influenza is another type of respiratory virus. This causes flu. So, it’s it an influenza virus. There’s different types. But, they say this is the main cause of seasonal flu.

The flu that we get more of every winter and there was a quite 9outrageous outbreak in 1918, 1919 in the West recorded the Spanish flu and it killed about 50 million people when a virus mutated and when the virus mutated, this effect caught so called genetic shift. The virus shifted; it was a new genetic form of the virus and what that meant was an expressed different proteins and these were proteins that our immune system was not familiar with. So, we didn’t have immunity to it and it caused severe illness, inflammatory reactions, killed young people and old people tragically.

So, different viruses can cause human respire viral infections. But, thinking about the corona virus particularly is what we want to focus on because that’s what’s new. We’ve had these other viruses for a long time.

This novel coronavirus now; the throne of virus is single-stranded RNA, it’s a ribonucleic acid virus and it’s in a protein envelope and this is a protein shell or capsid. The protein envelope or the protein capsule is very important for spread later on because this can protect the virus when it’s outside of the body and egg. It can survive on surfaces for a few days because of this. This protein envelope that surrounds the RNA and they’re very smal.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic. It’s one of the zoo enosis illnesses. The zoo enosis illnesses as the name sort of implies are infections that we get from animals. So, this comes from animals and you might have remembered previous infections of coronavirus that have caused pandemics that have gone round the world infecting in the world.

So, an epidemic is a large global outbreak; an epidemic is a large local outbreak; a pandemic pan- all of the world is affected.

So, MERS was the Middle East respiratory syndrome that was a corona virus in 2012 and severe acute respiratory syndrome ;the SARS in 2013 were also corona viruses and now we have this novel previously unidentified one; the 2019 novel coronavirus which is currently causing illness.

What are the clinical features that this novel coronavirus will cause?

Well, the data from China is somewhat limited at the moment. But, this is the latest data as of a couple of days ago. So, the people that got this condition 98% of them had a fever. So, basically everyone who had this disease had a fever; they were pyrexi. So, what happens here is that toxins are released from the virus; that’s detected by the immune system.

The immune system facilitates prostaglandin mechanisms and the hypothalamus turns off the set point of the hypothalamus and then we feel cold and shivery. We can have these rykors.

Rykor’s is the cold shiver feeling because when your temperature’s going up you feel cold, that increases the body temperature and gives us the fever now. This is actually a good thing because the viruses are less comfortable in pyrexia environments and the viruses don’t replicate as well in a fevered patient.

The increase in body temperature increases the efficiency of the immune system, so we need to see fever as an adaptive defensive mechanism. That’s going to help us combat this infection but it’s a clinical feature that we can detect simply by taking the patient’s temperature- 76 percent of the patients so far analysed who’ve been affected with novel coronavirus of had a cough.

Myalgia is pain in the muscles. With the corona virus, I assumed these patients are feeling remarkably ill as well. 28% produced sputumas you might expect. With a respiratory virus, 8% had a headache, 5% had coughing up blood, 3% had diarrhea which is interesting.

So, this virus seems to affect primarily the respiratory system. But, also the gastrointestinal system which is interesting and 55% developed dyspnea-difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath. So, thinking about the complications of this condition, so severe acute respiratory infection is pneumonia.

Now, pneumonia is infection at the level of the alveoli. So, bronchitis is going to be the larger bronchial passages. But the larger bronchial passages in the bronchial tree is bronchitis but pneumonia is actually affecting the lung at the level of the alveoli and we get consolidation, we get fluid collecting in there and of course if there’s fluid in there, the oxygen can’t get in, the carbon dioxide can’t get out.

So, that’s pneumonia, it is a complication of novel coronavirus. As with the other corona viruses that pneumonia is a complication severe acute respiratory infection which is pneumonia and also acute respired for distress syndrome. Acute respiratory distress syndrome a RDS occurs when the lungs become inflamed for any reason. It can be infection, it can be injury and the inflammation causes fluid from the nearby blood vessels to leak into the alveoli. So, the net result really is much the same as pneumonia. You get fluid in the alveoli because by acute respiratory distress syndrome and the patient will become very short of breath.

So far, from the Chinese data, two to three people have been getting infections for every year. Every infected case so that means it’s doubling and tripling in incidence. We don’t have any good antiviral treatments for the corona virus. But, I think that you get a temperature because the immune system wants your temperature to be high to improve the elimination of the virus and to improve the function of the immune system.

So, keeping warm and certainly in adults, I like to avoid giving air. Antipyretics in children is different, of course but avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and paracetamol. That’s acetaminophen; the who you ask sometimes people will say take regular powerset. It’ll certainly make you feel better, but it will lower your temperature and therefore in my view lower the efficiency of the immune system.

Keep hydrated because there is a risk of renal failure with severe conditions. Should you eat or not well eat if you’re hungry, if you don’t feel like eating, don’t worry about it you’ll be fine as long as you’re a reasonably nourished before. You’ll be fine without eating for a few days. Don’t force yourself to eat if you don’t feel like it. It’s really quite normal for the body to go catabolic when it’s ill; no specific antiviral medications.

Dark Sides of the film industry
Dark Sides of the film industry

When you’ve poured your heart and soul into your film, now how are you gonna get it out there?

For quarter two and three I never got a check or I never got a paypal, no one reached out to me in any way, shape or form. They’re just gonna sweep this all under the rug, but they’re using the money that they stole from us to pay for it. This is a result of extreme mismanagement at the highest levels of that company and that’s what I was told directly.

Filmmaking is also a business. So, go digital distributing went on. A business distribute is a film aggregator. They recently went bankrupt for what looks like you know bad business practices, wasteful spending, thousands of filmmakers have been denied their revenue.

We’re looking at possibly millions of dollars in damages; it’s crazy because that was considering using distributor to distribute unsound. So, like had I actually gone through with using them and distributing unsound like my film could have been tied up in all this mess, I thought this will be a great opportunity to talk about the dark side of the film business and why you should care before we haul off into this discussion.

We really gotta lay some groundwork first. Why is indie film so important before you can convince the studio’s or Netflix or any other company to spend millions of dollars on you. You usually have to prove yourself. First, in the form of making a film of your own, finding your own money and proving that you can appeal to an audience, they don’t catch-22 right like nobody’s gonna hire you unless you have experience. But, then you can’t get experience unless somebody hires.

People do this by making what’s called an independent film. It’s not backed by any big company; it’s completely independently financed. Lots of people started their careers in indie film; Chris, Nolan, Ava, Duvernay Rian, Johnson, Ryan, Coogler, Barry, Jenkins, Jon, Favreau just to name a few.

Going the indie film route isn’t the only way to break into the industry. But, historically it’s been like one of the best ways; it’s hard to talk about film without talking about money. There’s this notion going around that you shouldn’t have to spend any money in order to make a good film. Yes, while this is true it’s also an oversimplification.

If you want a career in film, there is so much more to it than that. Let’s unpack the beginner. If you’re just starting out, you should not be spending any money on your films, you’re gonna make a lot of mistakes on your first few shorts. Why spend money on lessons that you can learn for free right?

Just borrow a camera, get started, you can make some great stuff for a little to no money. The hobbyist in this phase; you start spending a little money, maybe you buy your own camera, you get a few subscription services like Adobe Creative Cloud or royalty free music sites. The point is you’re spending money without the expectation of a profit.

So, by definition you’re a hobbyist, getting serious at this point, you cut your teeth on a lot of little film projects here and there and right about now you’re starting to realize that doing everything for really cheap is not really getting you the results that you want sometimes. Getting good actors cost money, getting good locations cost money, just getting good production values cost money; you’ll reach a point where you outgrow; no budget filmmaking. You just get bored with it.

The only way to continue growing and get to that next level is to start investing in yourself like paying people for services, renting cameras and different pieces of gear you haven’t used. Before trying new things, career hunter in this phase, you’re ready to show people just how serious you are. You’re willing to invest even more into your films because you want the best possible outcome.

These films are gonna be your calling cards to the rest of the world to say hey this is what I’m capable of. Think of it this way, how can you expect some investor or some company to invest thousands or hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars on you and your visions. If you won’t even take a risk on yourself and invest in yourself, you’ve got to be willing to bet on yourself.

First responsibility, as you start to invest more in your films, you begin to take on a new financial responsibility. Now, it’s not just about making films. Now, it’s okay, I’ve spent money to make this thing happen. So, how am I going to make the money back?

If you’re constantly spending money, you’re never making any money, that’s a recipe for disaster right. That’s how businesses go out of business. An absence doesn’t even come close to cutting it. Not unless you get like millions of views a month, there are about a dozen factors that determine how much you’re gonna make on Adsense.

Many of these factors are completely outside of your control. Just to make the point crystal clear, over 100,000 people have seen my unsound here on YouTube. It’s been available for a little over a year now. Let’s look at how much I’ve made off Adsense. This is how much we made since I uploaded it over a year ago; thirty six dollars and forty eight cents. We spent over $40,000 on that film. Thirty of it coming from me personally in the form of credit cards,loans, etc. We’re not gonna see a return on any of that money.

It’s done, just gone. Adsense is not enough. I just took the financial hit, but the film was like an enormous success in many other ways.

Ideally, if you’re going to spend money and make an independent film; a feature film or you know maybe a webseries or something, you want some form of distribution so that you can sell that thing and make your money back ideally traditional film distribution. So, this is the meat of the conversation.

Historically speaking, film distribution has always been a really ugly business for independent movies, less than two percent of independent films make their money back. The average independent film costs a hundred thousand dollars in 2014. It was reported that the indie film community as a whole spent three billion dollars in less than 92% of the resulting films made their money back. Less than two percent, a lot of people are not seeing a return on their investment.

There are a number of different ways that you can lose your money. It’s not just that your film doesn’t sell. I mean there’s bad contracts, distribution deals that are just awful sometimes. It is you do get a good distribution deal but your film just doesn’t perform well. I wasn’t alone in this. I am just one of many stories of filmmakers who took the risk.

They put their money where their mouth was. They decided to bet on themselves and it didn’t work out. You don’t see a return on that investment and this is the dark side of the film industry that doesn’t get talked about.

We can’t just look at film as like this cool little hobby and then somebody will just pluck you out from nothing and make all your dreams come true sometimes. You have to be the person to bet on yourself. But, if you make that bet, you have to be financially responsible, you have to be willing to say if I make this film, I might not make a return on my investment and if that happens will I still be okay financially. If the answer is no, then you should not be spending that money and it’s not all bad.

Lots of people have made films that didn’t necessarily like make them money back, but the exposure they got from those films paid for itself off like and then some like the connections they made. It opened doors for them.

Many filmmakers have lost money just by signing like bad contracts. They didn’t know any better. You’ve got to educate yourself on how distribution works. I didn’t learn anything in film school, about all the different like flavors of distribution and types of contracts, I had to learn all that stuff on my own. You have to educate yourself, so you don’t get taken advantage of .

Significance of Accounting Concepts
Significance of Accounting Concepts

We are going to discuss on four basic assumptions of accounting six basic accounting concepts and four modifying principles of accounting.

Accounting entity assumption; the assumption states that the business transactions are separate from the owner’s personal transactions. For example, Sam Alex and Ken runs a business on shares of 25, 35 and 40 percentage of profits and the business is on loss now. But, they are only liable to this loss for the percentage of shares they own.

Next assumption is money measurement assumption; states the record only those transactions which can be recorded in terms of money. For example, Daniel purchase a building for his business use, so he’ll record this event but he will not record that the building is in small town or in a big city.

Going concern assumption; as per this assumption, businesses will last forever and will not wind up in near future. For example, Sam assumes that his hotel business will run for years.

Accounting period assumption states that to divide up the complex ongoing activities of a business into periods of a year, quarter, month, week etc. For example, Alex closed books of accounts in a year.

Let’s now discuss about basic concepts. First concept is dual aspect concept. The concept states that every business transaction requires recordation in two different accounts. For example, Sam purchases furniture for his hotel, he paid cash to receive furniture.

Revenue realization concept states that revenue can only be recognized after it has been earned. For example, Daniel sell some chocolates to his friend Neil on credit, here goods have been delivered. So, Daniel records this in his book of accounts.

Historical cost concept states that the price of an asset on the statement of financial position is based on its nominal or original cost when acquired by the company. For example, Sam purchases had tail for 1 million dollars 5 years ago entered in books of accounts. In this, original cost will be shown same1 million dollars even after next 10 years in the books of accounts.

Matching concept states that write only relevant cost of the period, revenues are reported along with the expenses that bought them in same period. For example, Daniel purchase our building $30 000 that will be useful for 80 months. Here the company will match 30 thousand dollars of expense each month to its monthly income statement.

Materiality principle; this principle states that an accounting standard can be ignored if the net impact of doing so has such a small impact on the financial statements that a reader of the financial statements would not be misled. For example, Daniel spent ten dollars to buy a wastebasket that has a useful life of ten years. The materiality principle allows him to expense the entire ten dollars in the year it is acquired, instead of recording depreciation expense of $1.00 per year for 10 years.

Consistency principle; now this principle states that once you adopt an accounting principle or method continue to follow it consistently in future accounting periods. For example, Neal purchase machine and use written down value method of depreciation for this year. So, he must follow the same for next coming years.

Prudence principle states that do not overestimate the amount of revenues recognized or under estimate the amount of expenses. For example, Daniel thinks that Neal will not be able to pay his money back, then this is a loss for Daniel. So, he’ll record this in books of accounts. But, suppose Daniel think that he will earn twice the cost of the chocolates, when he’ll sell rests then he’ll not record this in his books as this profit is not yet earned.

Sectors of Business

There are three sectors that you need to know in business. They’re primary, secondary and tertiary. 

Primary sector-That’s about extracting raw materials. For example of that could be fishing,agriculture or mining for any sorts of natural resource. 

Secondary sector– That’s about manufacturing goods. You’re thinking here factories or it could beconstruction. Build buildings or it could be building infrastructure; so roads, train tracks, etc. 

Tertiary sector- Tertiary sector is about providing services. They could be retail services; banking services, there’s so many example of services in our economy which leads me to statistics- statisticsyou could use for an evaluation point.  The UK is heavily loaded towards a tertiary sector. 79% of our economy; the UK economy based on current data is tertiary sector, 20% is in the secondary sector and only 1% is in the primary sector.

Location Decisions for Businesses
Location Decisions for Businesses

Location is one of the most important things that businesses must decide on and we know already that location affects businesses. The way the customers will see the product and buy the product from will depend on the location. So, we have several factors that influence the location of the business.

 If we are choosing a location for the first time or if we’re trying to relocate a business and the thing that manufacturing and service businesses are not the same. So, of course, many things will differ. Especially, manufacturing businesses rely on infrastructure and facilities; roads, power supplies, water suppliers and all these things. So, they need to consider this before they locate or relocate. 

Factors affecting manufacturing businesses; I’m talking about businesses that produce goods of course Production method- for example job production businesses, they have less importance to be near components. So, if I am let’s say a dress designer, it’s not necessary to be near the supplier. But, if I’m using flow production, I need a huge amount of material to be there every day.So, that’s why I need to be near my suppliers. 

Market- If the product person is a percival product of course, I have to be near the market. The factor that I should consider as a manufacturing business; raw materials. I have to be as I said near the suppliers of raw materials I should consider this. I should consider external economies of scale. So, if you are near your suppliers, they will respond quickly to your breakdowns. It will be better of course. Maybe, this isan important thing for you. Maybe, I have to be near research departments; labor is important as well because I need to be in an area where Labor’s are available; skilled and unskilled.Remember I am a Manufacturing business.

 Government influence- It is the grants or subsidies that might affect my decision to locate. 

Transport and communication– I have to be near roads. So, of course if I’m a factory, it’s common sense says that I should be near roads, railways and all these things. I cannot like locate in the middle of the desert for example. 

Power supply and water supply, the climate-They sometimes affect my decision in locating like thedry climate and Silicon Valley in the United States. Of course, it allows the production of silicon chips. So,  here that climate is a Plains at all and just remember it’s a manufacturing business. I’m considering all this because I’m a factory, I’m a manufacturing business. If I’m a service business, I provide service. The first thing I consider, our customers; because I have to have a direct contact with my customers because it’s a service right and personal preference of owners of course plays. Sometimes, they have a business where they live, where they locate. 

Technology also affects the business. If it’s a service business when they locate because technology allows some businesses to be far from customers. So, it’s not necessary for a web designer to be in the middle of the town. For example, I can have my office on the borders because there is no need to be exactly near the customers. For example, availability of labor’s,  there’s important climate as well. If you are a restaurant, if you are a service business, you cannot locate far away because you need to be in here.

Business rent and tax has played a big role in choosing the location of your business and remember there are a lot of let’s say costs on you as a business. So, one of them will be the fixed cost related to rent for example. So, sometimes you benefit from lore and traits especially if you don’t need to be and let’s say expensive variant the middle of the city or a middle of our town for example. Shoppers for retailing businesses as important retailing businesses like furniture shop, cloth shop or whatever of course you notice that all these shops are near the shoppers near us. Near other shops of course, they are not far away. You see them near a restaurant or near the famous.

There should be a customer parking and this is really important when considering the location. Just think about it, how many times you didn’t buy from an outlet or a place simply because they don’t have parking lot availability of suitable vacant premises of course related to rent and offices access for delivery is also important and should be taken into consideration. 

Security is important. Some areas are not safe. So, the location there is not suitable; the destinations and the laws that are passed by the government are also something important to consider.  

Transformations in Oil and Gas Technology
Transformations in Oil and Gas Technology

Huge changes are underway in oil and gas. The industry is starting to adopt a new wave of innovations in digital technologies which can help boost output and cut costs.

A new report suggests technological advances in the exploration and production sector could save seventy five billion dollars a year by 2023. Oil companies have for decades using powerful computers to analyze seismic data so they can target wells more precisely.

In oil bearing rocks, that technology is continuing to advance. Today only about one in three exploration wells finds useable volumes of oil or gas. But, increasingly sophisticated models of the rocks and fluids below ground level or under the seabed can raise that hit rate of successful wells to one in two, unless say the spread of intelligent and connected devices has allowed automation to make operations safer, more efficient and cheaper.

Norway’s equina for example has estimated that automation will enable it to drill wells, 15 to 20 percent faster by 2020. The oil industry generates large volumes of data. Till recently much of that data went unused, but the rise of cloud computing services is making it possible to store and analyze these huge amounts of data at a relatively low cost.

The cost of census for collecting more data is also falling off. Their sophistication is rising the expansion of Chevron’s 10 G’s oil field in Kazakhstan which is scheduled to start production in 2022, will include about 1 million sensors advanced reservoir models will also allow production to be optimized to squeeze more crude out of the fields at a lower cost.

A 1% increase in output from every conventional oil and gas field worldwide would add about 1.30 million barrels of oil equivalent per day to the market. That’s about the same as the total output from Libya.

Third in Greece, production made possible by these innovations will put downward pressure on oil prices adopting the new digital technologies will help oil and gas fight back against the growing threat they face from renewable energy; from battery storage and from truck vehicles

Real Life of a Corporate Lawyer
Real Life of a Corporate Lawyer

I always envisioned fast-paced city life courtrooms, magnificent apartments, expensive dinners with high-powered friends at least. Ofcourse there would be money, but they would also be caffeine-fueled late nights from clash offices overlooking London. There would be dirt on some power-hungry banker selling secrets to foreign Prince’s private jets.

But, what is it really like are the horror stories of all-nighters and Sunday mornings then pouring over contractual fine print and partners who expect more than is humanly possible.

Maybe you’ve looked online at shiny websites or even spoken to an actual lawyer in the hope of finding out what the funnily enough just as high-end fashion labels don’t fill their home pages with pictures of complex supply chains and Chinese factories. So, two law firms present the sexiest side of international offices and partners working on huge deals and innovative fields.

Your firms have to sell themselves to clients and to graduates just like fashion labels do. That’s not to say that they don’t work on hugely exciting projects just to the realities of painstaking due diligence proofreading and research aren’t what most people aspire to when they dream becoming a lawyer, I felt frustrated that even after to vacation schemes of Clifford Chance and slopes in May, I hadn’t really got answers to big questions around lifestyle ethics and job satisfaction.

I think my jobs probably not as dramatic is it on a day-to-day basis. We do have moments of drama, we do definitely have moments of drama but it’s probably not quite as frequent as once.

The basics are essentially the same. We’re presented with business critical situations and where our clients and the business critical advice problems are actually in practice a lot trickier. I think to result of you know everything seems to fall out a place for those guys. Whereas, for us actually often you know that there isn’t really a right answer and it’s about getting your heads together and working out what’s the best situation.

Going forward, we perhaps don’t have the same degree of resolution that they do as well on a weekly basis, can you give an example of the sort of thing that if I’m the CEO of a company, I might come to you with saying I need you to solve this for me, I fall into the category of disputes.

Lawyers who tend to help if something’s got a bit wrong, you something that we do lots of here is when companies buy each other basically. I might be buying a company from you and I think it is worth a certain amount and it’s you know for lots of different reasons. It might be because you told me it’s worth a certain amount for lots of different reasons and then perhaps when I bought it actually it turns out not quite to be whatever I guess.

Now, I might want to get my money back. How I might want to be able to improve the company perhaps yeah and really it’s about kind of working out. What I can do in that situation, that’s the type of situation that might end up in. Perhaps, you know in a courtroom or something like that in the investigation space, there might be allegations that you know your employees have done something wrong.

One of their employees has done something wrong and you know that could be anything from bribery and corruption and right through to you know an employment dispute. Maybe, there’s been an allegation of bullying or harassment or something like that.

We might be brought in to try and help work out what’s actually happened and whether it presents any legal risks and I suppose what steps should be taken internally to manage those risks and made sure it doesn’t happen again.

I’ll get up at around 7:00 and the morning I spend with him, he hopped on a client call from home at 8:00 for 45 minutes he left home by 9:00 replied to a couple of emails and read some news on the way in and arrived at the office at around 9:30.

A couple of hours a day are dedicated to emails as a client focused business law firms. Clients expect pretty quick responses. He spends a couple of hours most days doing witness or expert interviews all calling clients, he then has another few hours conferring with partners on the cases he’s working on familiarizing himself with documents and drafting more formal submissions, this is spread around lunch which he tries to have away from his desk if at all possible.

If you have to even average a really kind of average of when you go home, yes I try not to stay in the office constantly which is probably a bit unusual to be honest that probably is a bit earlier than most easily and I’d say probably averages seven thirty hour climbs up.

Holding your new born properly
Holding your new born properly

The first hold I want to demonstrate for you today is called the cradle hold. This one may become your go to hold. I know, it has for my wife and I because it allows you to have one hand free at all times which is really important as a new parent because as we know life doesn’t stop just because you have a baby. You still have to get things done.

So, what you want to do is start with your left hand on your baby’s rear. Your right hand supporting your head and neck and all you’ll need to do is just spin her around in that left hand and place her right on the inside of your elbow there.Allow your forearm to allow her back to rest on your forearm. You’re gonna be supporting her back that way and then make sure you’ve got your hand right under her.

So, the second hold I want to demonstrate for you today is called the snuggle hold. This is a great way to comfort your baby if she’s a little bit fussy.

Again, you’ll want to start with your left hand under her bottom, your right hand supporting her head and neck. You’ll spin her around and bring her in, close to your chest like this.

Make sure you turn her head so that her airway is unobstructed and so that she can breathe well. She’ll be ableto hear your heartbeat hear and feel your body warmth and it’ll be a good comforting position for her. You can also move her up on to the lower part of your shoulder, continue to support that like his and this is a good position for burping.

The third hold I’d like to demonstrate for you today is called the football hold. This one is a favorite of dads everywhere. For what I think are obvious reasons but even if you’re a breastfeeding mother, this is a great way to hold your baby to put her in the perfect position for nursing.

So, what you’ll do is just start in the standard position again with your left hand on your baby’s bottom and your right hand under her head and neck to support her there. You’ll spin her bottom around placing her legs underneath your right arm, allow her back to rest on your right forearm like this and continue to support her head and neck with your right hand.

You can then let go with your left hand. You got a hand free and also if you’re breastfeeding, you just turn her face in and her body in a little bit towards you.

The next hold is known as a face-to-face hold, which is a great way to interact with your baby if she’s awake and alert. All you’ll need to do is, starting from this standard position with your left hand on your baby’s bottom, your right hand supporting your head and neck is just spin her around. Spin her around so that you’re face to face from here.

You can talk to your baby, you can sing to your baby, you can play with her, make faces and this is a great way to connect with your newborn.

Next, the belly hold. This is a great way to hold your infant in a secure position and give you hand free for burping. So, what you’re going to do is again starting in this standard position with your left hand on your baby’s bottom right hand under her head and neck, is rotate her around in that left hand supporting her head and neck the whole way. Place her on your left forearm making sure to turn her head so that her airway is unobstructed and then bring her up to this horizontal position and you have a perfect position for burping.

Worthless College Degrees

People tend to get extremely triggered when you tell them they’re getting a useless degree and they want to know what the most useless degrees are.

I’m gonna go over what degrees you should absolutely avoid at all costs. But, before I trigger a few more people I just want to put a very very quick disclaimer out there that you should always follow your passion.

If your passion in life happens to be one of the degrees that I mention in this article, that’s totally fine. You should still follow your passion. All I’m saying is you should not go $50,000 in debt for a piece of paper. That’s not gonna benefit you at all and you will likely end up serving coffee to people and misspelling people’s names and you can still study the subjects you’re passionate about.

I mean top universities in the world offer all these classes for absolutely free. You just don’t get a degree from them and you can learn all you want, about all these different subjects for free, without spending any money, going into debt and if all this information is free from the top universities in the world, then why would you ever spend money on it?

First, psychology and the reason that I decided to include this on the list even though you can get a viable job, I mean you can become a social worker or something like that; the reason I decided to include this one is because it is one of the top five most popular majors. Even though it has really bad statistics and all of the important categories like job openings, job satisfaction, future growth potential, all of these things that are very important and I find psychology to be extremely interesting.

I can see why so many people like it but I don’t recommend actually majoring in it. It’s one where a lot of people fall into the trap of thinking that they can make money after graduating with this degree and then they end up five to maybe even six figures in debt and they can’t get a job.

Next is going to be drama and theater arts and you might be surprised that this one isn’t further down on the list because it does made fun of a lot. But, the reason I put this one further up is because it is actually kind of difficult to teach somebody how to act and all that sort of thing from a book.

It’s so hard to teach someone this particular skill from a book or even videos. That’s why I kept it towards the top of the list but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a pretty worthless degree that you are going to have a hard time getting a job from.

Next is going to be language studies and I’m probably gonna get a lot of flack for this one because there are some languages out there that you know if you learn and you get really good at you can make a lot of money as a translator but the reason I put this on the list is because you can easily learn a language by getting a video program or an audio program or actually moving to the country where this language is spoken, if you just spent those four years that you are studying the language and just move to the country that speaks those languages in those four years you would probably learn a lot more by doing that and you could get a job while you’re there and make money and this is the 21st century where you can go anywhere you want in the world and you don’t need to go fifty thousand dollars in debt just to learn a language.

There are certain languages that are more difficult in terms of writing and speaking than others. An example of this would be Mandarin or Cantonese because that is a very useful language. It’s something that’s going to be very useful to know in the next 50 years as business becomes more international but at the same time there are cheaper and probably better ways to learn the language than going to university and getting $50,000 in debt.

Next, is going to be communications and this one is actually kind of similar to psychology because it’s an extremely popular major that people tend to choose but don’t get this too confused because this major is clearly a even worse than psychology and it’s one of those majors that really makes you think like what do you even do with this major.

I mean it’s something that’s so broad that it becomes kind of useless like they might as well come out with like a life degree or a breathing degree or how to be a millennial degree or a how to smash that like button degree.

Next is going to be photography and this might be one of the most saturated fields on the entire list. We are witnessing a generation right now where basically everybody is a photographer and they all want to become Instagram famous so they can get that sweet influence or money then.

When that doesn’t work out, they decide to become an amateur photographer and you make the mistake of hiring them for your wedding and your pictures turn out like and the big point here is there’s so many resources online like Peter MacKinnon for instance on how to become a really good photographer and a lot of them are free or very cheap and you can get high-quality training and this is one of those skills where you really just have to practice in order to get better.

I mean learning about it in a classroom isn’t gonna help you out that much and getting a degree is not going to give you that much of an edge. You definitely do not need to spend five figures on this and one of my best friends actually moved to the country barely knowing any English. He taught himself photography and he became one of the top wedding photographers in Las Vegas within just a few years and he didn’t have to go to university for this. He didn’t have to buy some expensive course or going to debt for this.

He basically learned it all from free resources or very cheap resources and then he just practiced and once you get really good at a skill like this, you know it doesn’t matter what credentials you have next to your name. What really matters is your portfolio because that will speak for itself.

Highest Paying College Degrees in U.S.

It’s no secret that higher education in the United States comes at a premium these days with the cost of tuition inflating. It’s never been more important to choose a lucrative career. Those who choose wisely are rewarded with the generous salary while others are doomed to pay off student loans for decades from doctors to accountants.

We are counting the top highest paying college degrees. What is the average salary that a finance major can expect? At first glance, it doesn’t appear that the degree in finance is the ticket to a career with stellar pay. The average recipient of a BSc in finance takes in $60,000 a year. But, a few years in the industry makes a big difference; a financial planner’s median annual compensation is eighty-eight thousand eight hundred ninety dollars.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, what’s more employment within the field is expected to increase fifteen percent between 2016 and 2026 far outpacing most fields and after working in the field for more than a decade finance experts can expect to make well over $100,0000. The careers which a finance degree might prepare you for would include professions such as bond brokering, corporate finance, financial analysis, financial planning, underwriting, investment banking, venture capitalism and portfolio management.

Engineers are responsible for applying the principles of Science and Mathematics to create items used in daily life. Civil engineers design things such as buildings, homes, roads, tunnels, dance, airports, bridges and water and sewer systems. When designing these structures and systems, civil engineers must consider factors such as cost of materials, expected lifespan of the finished product and government regulations for safety because we all rely on the infrastructure provided by civil engineers. Their pay is remarkably high as of May 2016. The average salary of a civil engineer was eighty three thousand five hundred forty dollars annually.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the lowest paid ten percent of civil engineers receive less than fifty three thousand four hundred seventy dollars while the highest paid ten percent earned more than 130 two thousand eight hundred eighty dollars per year. Given these figures, you have a 50% chance of earning between sixty-five thousand three hundred thirty dollars in one hundred seventy thousand one hundred forty dollars per year. Those are pretty good odds of making significantly more than $50,000 per year.

A mechanical engineer has a similar workload to a civil engineer with some slight differences. Mechanical engineers design machines, tools, engines and thermal systems for consumers and industry. Many also build the things they design and test them for durability or effectiveness. The most common tasks for a mechanical engineer generally require using a computer and special software. The median gross annual salary for mechanical engineers in 2018 is sixty five thousand nine hundred dollars.

1 1/2 of all mechanical engineers are in less than the median, and half earn more salaries range from sixty one thousand two hundred fifty to seventy one thousand four hundred dollars. The top 10% of mechanical engineers earned 76 thousand four hundred sixty two dollars, the bottom ten percent only earned fifty-seven thousand fifteen dollars. However, given five or more years of experience, engineers start making one hundred five thousand dollars a year.
