Using data from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), Miguel Román, research physical scientist and remote sensing specialist in the Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratory, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, has identified how patterns in nighttime light intensity change during major holiday seasons. In comparing the six weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s in the U.S., he and his team noticed large areas where night lights were from 20-50% brighter than the rest of the year. Dr. Román will discuss the need to better understand the driving forces behind energy use, including how dominant social phenomena, the changing demographics of urban centers, and socio-cultural settings affect energy-use decisions. This lecture will be held in the Pickford Theater, 3rd Floor of the Madison Building, on Thursday, December 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.Click here for more information.
College at Home? Sounds like a scam or too good to be true. Neither is the case. You can receive nationally recognized college level credit for a fraction of the cost, at your own pace and mostly from the comfort of your home. There are several reasons to consider this option. Three of them are cost, time and flexibility.Pursing college credit or a complete degree using the Credit by Examination method can be a huge money saver. Studying at home eliminates the cost of room, board and commuting to a college campus as it is only necessary to go on a campus for the final exam. Also, many of the materials used are low or no cost. Each 3-6 credit exam can be completed, including the final test, for around $125.This method also saves time. In the case of an adult learner this type of credit can be earned while working, raising children or pursuing ministry. Depending on the student, study time, skill, age and schedule some of these exams can be passed in as little as two weeks, although we usually are ready to pass one a month. Students still in high school may use this as a kind of dual credit by studying their regular high school materials and then spending a few weeks with the CLEP or DSST specific materials, taking practice tests and sitting for the exam. How amazing to earn college credit during high school and at a fraction of the cost. It is like getting a scholarship before you even are ready to apply to a college.One of the best reasons to use the CBE (Credit by Examination) method is flexibility. A student can study subjects of interest, in the order of their choice and on their time schedule. They can transfer these credits to many accredited colleges and universities. They can also live at home, stay connected with family and their local support system, work, raise a family, the options are endless. If the student is interested in a complete degree from home there are at least three regionally accredited colleges that are making this option a reality.Are you interested? Does this sound like something you or your student would like to pursue? Post a comment. Read about the exams we have passed and pray. This may be just what you need.
