    What Are The Benefits Of Attending School Online?

    Much like the growing popularity of online college education, online high school programs have been growing in number over the last decade. In online high school, students are subject to the same requirements as traditional school students, but they can do their work in the privacy of their homes.

    Online high school can be a great option for students who have a different learning pace than many of their peers because they can complete work on their own schedule rather than having a finite amount of class time. This is beneficial for both faster and slower learners. In addition, online high school classes can be very beneficial for homeschooling families.

    What Are The Benefits Of Open Source?

    Open source software is a freely available software. The owners or developers of open source softwares openly consent to grant members of the public, free access to their software source codes. Using this permission, users and other developers can see the software codes and add changes. There are a wide variety of benefits to using open source software and below we will discuss a few of the most prominent.

    The changes can range from adding new security codes to sharing applications and hunting out bugs. Some of the best examples of full and partial open source software products include; Android, Linus OS, Mozilla Firefox and Wikipedia. The thinking behind open source software is based on the premise that users are essentially co-developers.

    Coffee As A Health Food!

    Coffee is one of the most widely consumed drinks in the world, and yet many of us feel a bit guilty reaching for that second or third cup because we’ve somehow become convinced that it’s a vice, a guilty pleasure, and we’re caffeine addicts if we fill up our cups more than once.

    Well, cast guilt aside. A new health study is adding to a growing body of medical literature indicating coffee is actually good for you!

    A study of more than 25,000 coffee drinkers in South Korea shows that moderate coffee consumption — which in South Korea means three to five cups of coffee a day — leads to a lower risk of calcium building up in coronary arteries. Coronary artery calcium (CAC) levels are an indicator of future heart problems.

    Four cups of coffee has been shown to reduce the risk of melanoma, a skin cancer. The study supports a recent finding that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer.
