Registration is currently open for the free online event, offered through Chopra Online. Viewers can sign up at http://www.successwithoutstruggleevent.com to join Deepak Chopra for the hour-long event taking place at 5:00pm pacific/ 8:00p.m. eastern on Wednesday, September 10th.
Many of us were brought up to believe that success can only be achieved through hard work, exacting plans, and driving ambition. Sometimes this approach which I call the Law of Forced Effort will help us reach our goals, but the cost is often extreme stress, burnout, addiction, and even the destruction of our health and relationships, said Deepak Chopra.
Life doesnt have to be such a struggle. We can actually do less and accomplish more. This is the Law of Least Effort, and we can see this creative principle everywhere in nature. Grass doesnt try to grow; it just grows. Fish dont struggle to swim; they just swim. And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form easily and effortlessly.

The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) has re-accredited all three bachelors degree programs in fire protection offered by Eastern Kentucky University.
IFSAC is a peer-driven, self-governing entity that evaluates fire-related degree programs, as well as fire service certification programs. Once accredited, programs must be re-evaluated every five years to ensure standards are being met.
EKU received its initial IFSAC accreditation in March 2009, and a site team visited the Richmond, Kentucky campus again on March 24-28, 2014. Bill Hicks, assistant professor for the EKU Department of Safety, Security & Emergency Management, serves as the universitys IFSAC representative and oversaw the reaccreditation process.
Bachelor of science degrees in Fire, Arson & Explosion Investigation; Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology; and Fire Protection Administration were reaccredited.
A letter from IFSAC Program Manager Eldonna Creager to EKU read, We commend you, the administrators, faculty and staff on the time, work and effort put forth to participate in this process and your desire to provide quality programs for those pursuing fire-related careers.
EKU has offered fire degrees for more than 40 years, and now offers graduates the opportunity to study online or on campus. The current programs were designed with multiple types of professional accreditation in mind, regardless of the method of delivery students choose.
Everything we do here is continually re-evaluated for quality. We pride ourselves on the effectiveness of our teaching and, most importantly, the knowledge of our graduates, said Hicks.
Online students take the same courses, with the same instructors as those on campus and earn the same fully-accredited degree.
Eastern Kentucky Universitys College of Justice & Safety offers three accredited and highly respected degree programs in fire protection, which are available online and on-campus. Students may choose from Fire, Arson & Explosion Investigation, Fire Protection Administration and Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology. EKU is a fully accredited, brick-and-mortar institution celebrating more than 100 years of student success.

Property management software company Buildium announced it will increase the value of its Build U. Scholarship in the fall of 2014 from $ 2,000 to $ 2,500, in part to meet the soaring cost of education at U.S. colleges and universities. Launched in the fall of 2013, the Build U. Scholarship encourages students to continue pursuing their degrees in technology, and to reflect on how they can improve the organizations theyll eventually work for.
A panel of judges at Buildium will present the $ 2,500 cash prize to the student who writes the essay that best describes how core values can lead to building a better company. Past Build U. Scholarship recipients include Debra Jensen, a freshman at North Central College in Illinois, who won in April of 2014, and Jai Krishnan, a graduate student in the Engineering Design and Innovation MS program at Northwestern University in Illinois, who won the inaugural prize in October of 2013.
We really take our companys values seriously at Buildium, CEO Michael Monteiro said. The first two award-winners blew us away with their essays. Raising the amount of the award is one way we can take a bit of the sting out of the high cost of their education. At the same time, writing the essay gets them to really reflect on how they can contribute to a company, above and beyond the technical skills they bring to the table.
We cant wait to read the next round of essays this fall, Monteiro added.
To qualify, students must be at least 18 and enrolled in a Product Design, Interaction Design, User Experience Design, Engineering or Computer Science program at an accredited U.S. college or university. The deadlines for submitting the qualifying essay are October 1, 2014 for the fall scholarship and April 1, 2015 for the spring scholarship. For eligibility rules and complete details, please visit the Build U. Scholarship page.

Todays working adults have the opportunity to propel their careers in new directions and new adventures. The key to unlocking this potential is education. Working with West, we are making the path to a degree attainable.
Sharing a common belief that a college education should be available to every student willing to work toward his or her degree regardless of time and financial resources – StraighterLine and West have created a learning experience that can help students save significantly on the total cost of their college degree. Based on course-to-course equivalency, the partnership is creating a direct degree pathway to West for StraighterLine students.
Through this path, all approved general education courses completed at StraighterLine can be used as prerequisites for Wests online degree programs. Additionally, West is offering students the opportunity to experience their course catalog at a reduced rate of $ 200 for their first course. After the initial course, the cost for undergraduate tuition is $ 250 per credit hour.
Oftentimes the biggest obstacles for working adults to overcome is the fear of not knowing how to work education into their lives, both in terms of time and cost, said Tracy Lorenz, president of West. That is why we make it so easy to get started. Beyond reducing the cost of their first course, we have services that help working adults more effectively make school a part of their life again and offer programs providing skills that students can immediately apply in their careers.
As part of the partnership, StraighterLine transfer students who complete four StraighterLine courses are eligible for the StraighterLine Partner College Benefit at West. Additionally, students who take the maximum number of courses at StraighterLine that fit into their degree program can save even more on their degree from West.

Each year, prospective students are bombarded with information on colleges from the best party schools to the best school for your money. They too are presented with a myriad of college rankings based on data collected from universities. However, those rankings do not take into account inbound college students choices. Parchment, the industry leader in the electronic exchange of student transcripts, today announced the results of its 4th annual Student Choice College Rankings study, which compares more than 700 colleges and universities among a sample size of more than 27,000 U.S. in-bound college students nationwide. The ed tech company has the unique advantage to issue college rankings, as it is the only study that reveals college preferences and enrollment decisions reported from actual college-bound students.
Parchments Student Choice College Rankings found that military institutions, including the U.S. Air Force Academy, have become increasingly popular amongst in-bound college students. The military school jumped 35 spots from 42 on last years list to seven this year, beating out top Ivy League universities, Columbia University (#12), Brown University (#14) and Dartmouth College (#15). Parchments study also found that students that were admitted to Stanford and another school, most often elected to attend Stanford, making it the top student choice, followed by M.I.T. (#2) and Harvard (#3), for the second consecutive year.
Every year, our college rankings unearth some new and interesting trends amongst this next generation of college students, said Parchments Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Matthew Pittinsky, Ph.D. We are always impressed with the findings as it reflects actual student decisions, such as military schools shooting up in the rankings to beat out the prestigious Ivies. As student decisioning trends change over the years, we are confident that our Student Choice College Rankings is the most accurate reflection of current trends.
A full breakdown of the Top 25 institutions in the 2015 Student Choice College Rankings is as follows:
2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
3. Harvard University
4. Yale University
5. Princeton University
7. United States Air Force Academy
8. University of Pennsylvania
9. Middlebury College
10. Duke University
11. Bowdoin College
12. Columbia University
13. University of Chicago
14. Brown University
15. Dartmouth College
16. United States Military Academy
17. Pomona College
18. Haverford College
19. University of California, Berkeley
20. Williams College
21. Swarthmore College
22. Bates College
23. Harvey Mudd College
24. Johns Hopkins University
25. University of California, Los Angeles
The final list unveiled a few more impressive moves among the set. Johns Hopkins University jumped the rankings from 42 to 24 this year, whereas Duke University fell from its previous position of number five down to 10. Harvey Mudd College also dropped in rankings, from eight to 23, yet University of California, Los Angeles shot up the rankings to its highest position ever, rounding out the Top 25.
Employing an Elo Ratings system, where all colleges are classified as equals, Parchments Student Choice Rankings methodology puts schools in a head to head bracket, where they earn points based on a students attendance or lose points if they are not selected. Parchment then takes into account a colleges popularity score, awarding more points for colleges that are chosen unexpectedly and fewer points for those schools that could be considered predictable picks. At the end of each school year, Parchment then reviews the total points each school has earned to arrive at its rankings for the following year.
Parchments college rankings are pulled directly from students using Parchment.com. The Parchment website is a free online resource to help students and parents research colleges, discover their chances of admissions, see how they stack up with their peers and send official transcripts when they are ready to apply.
