So what college is the best? Lookup reviews and find out the top 100 colleges by student choice at GradReports. The site states, “We aim to be the most comprehensive college review site on the web. We gather information on post-college salaries, jobs, and general college life.” I recently used the site and was able to use it to make solid decisions.

Best Cloud-Based Presenation Builder

15 Jan

Are you looking for a great way to create your next big presentation? Have you considered Haiku Deck? A colleague of mine suggested giving it a try and I must say that after two years of using the product – it just keeps improving. Why do I like it? It guides you, as the presenter, to boil down your thoughts into what’s essential. The goal of any presentation is to get your point across and this product helps you do just that!

Haiku Deck comes with pre-configured templates, designs, stock images, and filters to create a bold, clear communication. What I like best about it, is that your work displays nicely on desktops or mobile devices. In the pro version, you can even download the files to edit them locally in PowerPoint rather than trying to perfect them in the cloud.

If you are looking for a great way to product professional looking presentations, give Haiku Deck a try.

Learn About Your Heroes

12 Jan

Everyday new heroes are born and former heroes die. It seems like more famous people died in 2016 than ever before. What is your source to discover figures from the past? Traditionally I have just Googled it or looked up an individual on Wikipedia. However recently, I stumbled upon the Biography website and discovered a different experience. The site features pictures, videos and in-depth articles on human legends from all walks of life.

Supress Writer’s Block

9 Jan

Do you need help figuring out how to use a word in a sentence? I use online tools like dictionaries and thesauruses for word inspiration when I am writing. However there are times when I find myself needing more. I recently stumbled upon the Dictionarist website, it offers examples of how a word you might be stuck on could look like in a sentence. The site is primarily a word translation site, but I find it extremely valuable for sentence suggestions. It can translate English-Spanish, Spanish-English, English-Chinese, and Chinese-English for example.If you are like me, this online tool can help give you an extra push over the edge during writer’s block.

Tech Tip To Save Your Date Night Out

8 Oct

Are you planning a big date with your significant other? The next time you go out to dinner with your spouse, “Don’t go to a place that has TVs hanging everywhere!” Try picking a place without TVs hanging everywhere because they are a significant distraction. You already have enough tech distractions with smart phones and watches, why add another one? For me, it is easier to focus on the conversation with less tech distractions.
