How to pivot your career into the healthcare field

TwitterFacebook

Between now and 2024, the healthcare field is projected to experience the fastest employment growth, which is creating opportunities for people who are passionate about healthcare and considering a career in the industry.   

“The healthcare field is broad and dynamic,” said Doris Savron, executive dean at University of Phoenix College of Health Professions. “A career path in healthcare can range from IT to nursing to administrative staff, and each path is unique in what level of degree, time commitment and licensing are required.”   

For those looking to make a career change, the transition is not always easy. But with a bit of planning, you can remove many of the unknowns. According to Samantha Dutton, Ph.D., MSW, program dean at University of Phoenix College of Humanities and Sciences, this transition period can be made less stressful with some preparation.     Read more…

Stephen Colbert just pointed out that another very famous politician performs body-slams too

TwitterFacebook

Newly appointed Montana congressman Greg Gianforte has had a busy couple of days. He body-slammed a reporter on Wednesday, and then just one day later he went on to win his congressional election on Thursday.

To help make sense of this whirlwind, Stephen Colbert dedicated part of his Thursday night’s monologue on The Late Show to look at others who’ve also won elections despite having body slams on their resumé. Turns out one very famous businessman-turned-president also has performed the move too. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Andy Rubin, better known as the guy who created Android and then sold it to Google only to later leave, will finally show off his new smartphone on May 30.

Rubin’s company, Essential, sent its first tweet on Thursday teasing the phone launch and then a follow-up tweet showing a silhouette of the device.

Kevin Spacey managed to out-swear the master of all curse words, Gordon Ramsay

TwitterFacebook

“Damn, I’ve been out f*cked.”

As the first guest on Gordon Ramsey’s new show, The F-Word, Kevin Spacey spoke about the upcoming performance of his one-man play, Clarence Darrow, while snacking on some tasty fish.

However, the interview quickly turned into a swearing contest as Spacey seemed determined to out-swear Ramsey, which is practically impossible as the chef’s brand is mostly just cooking and swearing at people. Against all odds, Spacey came out victorious as Ramsey admitted that the actor’s “fucks” are said with charm. 

The full interview airs during The F-Word premiere Tuesday, May 31st on Fox. Read more…

Women’s tech group to Uber: We’re done with you

TwitterFacebook

Uber’s actions are having real consequences. 

The Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology ended a partnership with Uber over allegations of the ride-hailing giant’s treatment of women employees. 

“This is a rare step for us, but we felt compelled to take action in light of the many serious accusations Uber faces regarding the treatment of women employees,” the institute wrote in a press release announcing their decision. 

Uber reached out to the Anita Borg Institute in 2015, the group said. Since then, Uber has signed on as a partner with the institute, but hasn’t really done anything. The Anita Borg Institute described a “lack of engagement” on Uber’s part.   Read more…

Apple rumored to go all out with a bigger screen ratio for the iPhone 8

TwitterFacebook

Apple may follow in Samsung’s footsteps with its next iPhone in more ways than one. 

We’ve heard a ton about the switch to an OLED screen for the upcoming iPhone 8; it’s the most prevalent rumor in the whole bunch, with some extra legs due to a reported partnership with Samsung to supply the displays. Samsung uses OLED screens in its Galaxy S8 handsets, which have a similar “bezel-less” screen design to what we’re expecting Apple will roll out with the iPhone 8.   

OLED might not be the only aspect of the display Apple will be adding to the next-gen iPhone also found in the S8, however: according to a DigiTimes report spotted by BGR, the iPhone 8’s display will also sport an 18:9 aspect ratio (the S8’s screen rocks a similar 18.5:9 aspect ratio), which would make it the latest flagship phone to embrace the extra-tall phone trend.     Read more…
