(BPT) - Education is not a one-size-fits-all system. Much like each public university has its own unique culture, so does each type of higher education institution. In addition, the goals of each student are not the same. Some students are fresh out of high school and looking forward to the social opportunities that a public university will give them, and they are not in a hurry to get their degree. Some are single parents, already working full-time jobs, who just want to go back to school and quickly get a degree and get a better job. For these latter students, a four-year university may not be the right fit for their needs. Instead, career colleges really can be the way to go.

Conversely, a rushed presentation can give moviegoers an incomplete, undercooked raw taste that makes them feel unsatisfied with the film’s conclusion. Thankfully, “The Hundred-Foot Journey” is a deliciously well-paced romantic comedy with a strong international flavor, delivered by an exceptional cast, that’s aesthetically appealing on all levels.

(BPT) - Sending children back to school comes with a long checklist of items to remember. For example, you need to know what school supplies to buy. You will want to visit the school to find the classroom and meet the teacher. You will also plan after-school activities full of fun enrichment opportunities. If you have a child with asthma or allergies going back to school this fall, you need another item on that list.
