This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.

For people who have a job it is often impossible to attend regular college and earn a degree. Especially when a higher degree is essential for career advancement, it becomes highly challenging for individuals to decide on the future course of action. Thanks to the proliferation of high speed internet there is the possibility of earning most of the degrees online.

A case in point is the Masters in Teaching degree offered by the USC Rossier School of Education’s MAT@USC. The unique program provides aspiring teachers an opportunity to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from an elite research university without having to leave their present jobs or alter their schedules. According to the program information, classes are held online and are highly interactive. The program is an accelerated one which combines some field-based experiences and can be completed in as little as 12 months.

The best part of the program is its unique and fantastic tuition reimbursement program. Along with becoming an integral member of the elite USC Trojan family, students have the opportunity to get complete tuition reimbursement. Still unsure whether this program works for you? Just visit the MAT@USC Student blog and hear about the experiences of actual students who are in or have completed the program.

If you haven't already heard about USC, then here is a small intro. The school has been around over 100 years and has been educating teachers since its inception. USC has been known as a research institution and its School of Education has been ranked #22 in the United States, and #9 among all private universities by US News and World Report.

Some Blackberry Images

I have always been a big fan of small handy devices and integrated gadgets. If one device can incorporate everything that I'd need that is what I'd buy. Well the kind of gadget I have always dreamed of having is yet to be manufactured, but for now I am content using the Blackberry with internet connection. This phone has a pretty good camera which is obvious when you look at the images below. I shot these pictures at the Frontier Flight Museum sited alongside the Love Field Airport in Dallas. I liked the venue and there are somethings that I really feel that should be incorporated by all nations in the world to enhance their revenues and also provide a learning, fun locale for kids and elders alike.

Americans love to show off their nationalism and patriotic fervor. They put up their national flag, state flag, quotes like "God Bless America" etc pretty much everywhere. This kind of love for their country and pride in national symbols is very healthy and should be inculcated right from infancy in every nation across the world.

An example how exhibits are arranged in such a way that visitors learn about the actual aircraft and how they fly. Then there are these bouncy fun stuff which children would love to get into and play. These things make the museum experience memorable and children would look forward to visiting again and again.

The above image is an example how private businesses take advantage of the museum to promote their brands and support the local community. The museum runs mainly on grants and sponsorships like these and the businesses gain visibility and recall value in the minds of children who will grow up to become adults and employees, associates or customers of these businesses. This kind of attitude should be developed in the minds of Indian businessmen who are only keen on hoarding money for their dynasty and don't think of giving to the community.

Fantastic Mobile Phone Service gets even better!!!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mobile phone market in the US is getting more and more competitive. Consumers are getting spoilt by service providers with an array of services that is getting better every day. The latest offering comes from Boost Mobile. When I looked up the simplicity of having a mobile phone with Boost, I was impressed. There are pay as you go mobile phone plans that start from as little as 10 cents a minute/ talk and 10 cents a text, or you can get everything unlimited (including web) for just $50 a month. If you want a fancy handset like the Blackberry then it costs a mere $10 more per month.

I was particularly fascinated by Boost Mobile's flexible method of adding money to your account. The concept known as Reboost enables you to add funds either online, in-person or over phone. If you want to know more about how to Re-Boost your account just visit their website. You can also set up automatic payments from your credit/ debit card.

Mobile phones have become more than talking instruments. People use them to check their online profiles, facebook, twitter, email, text, etc. The possibilities are endless, but unlike many popular mobile phone service providers Boost Mobile enables affordable access to these services. I get to update my twitter account on the move at no extra data cost, all I have to pay is one small monthly payment.

There is no dearth of phones at Boost Mobile, almost all the popular models are available on easy payment options. Even the extremely popular Blackberry models are available on Boost Mobile.

Now if you were wondering about high cellphone bills, you can forget about it with Boost Mobile.
