"Best Careers, Degree Not Required" and More

I subscribe to Marylaine Block's "Neat New Stuff" email. These were some of her finds in a recent message:

Best Careers, Degree Not Required
http://www.citytowninfo.com/studies/best-careers-degree-not-required.html
Not only are there well-paying jobs that don't require a bachelor's degree, many of them are so basic that our society can't function without them being done (and done well). The chart here lists over 700 such jobs, along with median salary, expected job growth, and links to more info about the careers.

Classic Short Stories

This sizable collection of classics includes Poe, Orwell, Twain, Balzac, O.Henry, Melville, H.G. Wells, deMaupassant, and more.

Fireworks Safety

Advice for parents from the pediatricians who don't wish to continue to treat thousands of children with severe fireworks injuries every year.

Public Domain Photos

Two neat things about the US government: they shoot lots of photos on just about every topic you can imagine, and all of them are in the public domain.
