Making a New Career Path for Myself

I wanted to find out what I had to do in order to get a TEFL certification. I did not even know what this was until I started talking with my cousin on social media. We had lost touch for nearly a dozen years, and I was surprised to find out she was teaching English as a Foreign Language in Thailand. I was so fascinated with the stories she was telling me, and she is the one who inspired me to get my own certification so I could see if I wanted to do the same.

I had a feeling I would because she made it sound so nice.… Read More

Troy-Georgia State live stream (10/24): How to watch college football online, TV, time

The Trojans beat Texas State 37-17 in the first home game in the current run but needed a 47-yard field goal off the leg of Evan Legassey as time expired to escape the upset bid from Eastern Kentucky last week.

There were bright spots for the Trojans in the game with freshman running back Kimani Vidal topping the 100-yard mark for the second straight game with 143 yards on just 13 carries while Kaylon Geiger finished with 100 receiving yards and Gunnar Watson threw a trio of touchdown strikes while completing 26-of-38 passes.

The death toll from the suicide attack Saturday in Afghanistan’s capital has risen to at least 18 killed and 57 people wounded, including students, the interior ministry said.

Afghan security officials separately announced on Saturday that a senior al-Qaida commander had been killed in a recent operation in the country’s east.

Saturday’s explosion in the capital struck outside an education center in a heavily Shiite neighborhood of western Kabul, Dasht-e-Barchi.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian says that the attacker was trying to enter the center when he was stopped by security guards.

According to Arian, the casualty toll may rise further as family members of victims of the suicide

Although it’s technically Week 8 of the college football season, it’s the Big Ten’s season-opening weekend, and, with only eight regular-season games in eight weeks, this matchup is a big one.

During the Golden Gophers’ impressive 11-2 2019 season, GameDay visited Minnesota for the first time, and now it’s back for a second appearance in 13 shows.

But while the GameDay crew was dealing with some chilly weather, Lee Corso continued broadcasting from his “home” studio in Orlando. And he has faith in Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines, who are slight 3-point favorites over Minnesota, and put on a giant Michigan helmet.

Big suicide bombing in Kabul kills 18 at education center

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The death toll from the suicide attack Saturday in Afghanistan’s capital has risen to at least 18 killed and 57 people wounded, including students, the interior ministry said.

The explosion struck outside an education center in a heavily Shiite neighborhood of western Kabul, Dasht-e-Barchi.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian says that the attacker was trying to enter the center when he was stopped by security guards.

According to Arian, the casualty toll may rise further as family members of victims of the suicide bombing are still searching the several different hospitals where the wounded have been taken.


No group claimed immediate responsibility for the bombing. The Taliban rejected any connection with the attack.

An Islamic State affiliate claimed responsibility for a similar suicide attack at an education center in August 2018, in which 34 students were killed. Within Afghanistan, IS has launched large-scale attacks on minority

First ‘murder hornet’ nest in US is found near Canadian border

SEATTLE, Wa. — After weeks of trapping and searching, entomologists from the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) have found an Asian giant hornet nest on private property in Blaine. It’s the first such nest found in the U.S., and the agency will set out to destroy it Saturday.

Four live Asian giant hornets, known to some researchers as “murder hornets,” were caught in two traps this week and tagged, WSDA spokesperson Karla Sapp said Friday.

One was followed back to its nest on Thursday.

“The nest is inside the cavity of a tree located on private property near an area cleared for a residential home,” Sapp said in an email. “Dozens of the hornets were seen entering and exiting the tree while the WSDA team was present.”

The agency has been keen to find Asian giant hornet nests since the insects’ presence in the United States was first detected
