In the current debates raging about the cost of a college degree, several unspoken but important points of agreement among parents, professors and politicians have been overshadowed and overpowered by our disagreements.
During my stop in Hamburg, Germany, some of my friends and I decided to take a trip to Berlin. We utilized many types of public transportation and were able to get to Berlin to spend the day visiting many historical places.
For the past 50 years, a unique campus has been sailing the high seas, offering its students all the rigors of a classroom-based education combined with exotic locales to nurture generations of opinion leaders.
The program, known as Semester at Sea, is currently under the aegis of The University of Virginia. One of America’s most prestigious institutions of higher education, the public research university located in Charlottesville, Virginia was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819.
In a cavernous basement laboratory at the University of Minnesota,Thomas Stoffregen thrusts another unwitting study subject — well, me — into the “moving room.” The chamber has a concrete floor and three walls covered in faux marble. As I stand in the middle, on a pressure sensitive sensor about the size of a bathroom scale, the walls lurch inward by about a foot, a motion so disturbing that I throw up my arms and stumble backward. Indeed, the demonstration usually throws adults completely off balance.

"Thank you" in Russian looks like "
Cпacибo,” but is pronounced “spa-si-ba.” This was the first phrase I learned before I took my first steps in St. Petersburg, Russia and I was very thankful to be on land after five days at sea.
Three days and two nights in Antwerp, Belgium was definitely not enough.
A trade-off of a semester at sea is that while you see many amazing places, you don’t stay very long. However, it is worth it.

Autoridades del turismo en Cuba anunciaron la reapertura del insigne hotel Capri de La Habana prevista para la próxima temporada de invierno, tras más de cuatro años de ser sometido a reparación capital.
Ante el decrecimiento de la cifra de visitantes extranjeros a Cuba en el primer semestre, el Ministerio de Turismo en la isla trabaja para consolidar su producto y diversificar mercados a partir de noviembre. “La temporada alta va a marcar un punto de reversión de esa tendencia. Agosto concluyó con 3,7% por encima de las cifras alcanzadas en el propio mes el pasado año. Lograremos culminar 2013 con un crecimiento en los arribos de turistas respecto a iguales etapas anteriores”, aseguró José Manuel Bisbé York, director comercial del Mintur en conferencia de prensa. Renovar la planta hotelera ha sido uno de los principales desvelos. Por ello se han inaugurado un grupo de instalaciones entre las que se destacan el Meliá Marina Varadero (423 habitaciones y 122 apartamentos), Eurostar Santa María (846 habitaciones), Pestana Cayo Coco (468 habitaciones) y Planta Real de Paradisus Princesa del Mar (168 habitaciones).
Carol Frances has found that the best way to learn is to travel. She plans to share some of her most fascinating trips during the upcoming âAmerican and Canadian Female Authorsâ series presented by Penelope Engard at the Hemet Public Library.
So yesterday, our bridal blogger Stephanie wrapped up her year of blogging for usâbut there’s one more thing I just had to throw in here. By the time they got married, Stephanie and Pat had been together for 12 yearsâstarting in 7th grade! And as she mentioned in her wedding recap, because of that, they had worked on a special video with their wedding videographers, Cinemacake, to play as their reception began. It’s called their Love Story, and it takes everyone who watches it through their entire journey, from shy little kids in grade school through the Semester at Sea they did together in college to their White House proposal (which she got the chance to fill the President in on in person a bit later!), and eventually, their wedding day. You can watch it below. What a fun little extra touchânot just for their guests, to make them so feel a part of what was being celebrated at that wedding, but for them to have for years to come.Â Seemed the perfect way to cap this all off.
