Completed Master of Science, Information Security and Assurance

If you have been following my website, which you probably haven't since I don't update often enough to keep it interesting, but anyway; I started to go back to school to get my Bachelors of Science degree in 2011. When I started I knew that the B.S. should only be the beginning, after all, I had been in the technology industry and career field for 18 years. So my intent was to complete the B.S. and go directly into an advanced degree. When I completed the first degree 17 months later in 2013, I wasn't sure which direction to go.

Electric Vehicles are not "Green" (The movie)

This is a presentation I did for my "Language and Communication: Presentation". For my research project I wanted to determine, based on pollution from the generation of electricity if an electric vehicle was any more environmentally friendly than a comparable gasoline engine.

With current power generation techniques in the US, it's not.

One Course down, now I wait

Today my courses opened at Western Governor's University. The first course is designed to take up to 15 days and must be completed within 20 days. So far, I have completed all activities for the first class and can't begin my second class until I speak with my student mentor.

I can review the course requirements, what will be "learned" in a particular class, but I can't actually begin the material until it has been opened.

I was actually still awake at 1AM this morning because I wanted to get started, but alas, it was not available.

Going back to school, starting Saturday

Starting this coming Saturday, October 1st I begin taking classes again at Western Governor's University.

This will be my second attempt at starting a degree at an online university. The first was through Capella. And as I'm writing this blog entry, there is an advert for Capella right here.

The reason I was not successful with Capella was that the course I took was dependent on time spent "in class". As well as dependent on group projects.
