Signs that British youngsters could be reconsidering the value of a university education

Search volume for “electrician apprenticeships”

Google search traffic for vocational career information more than doubled on the day British high school students received their grades.

There’s currently a skills gap in the construction sector, so it’s encouraging to see that people are interested in apprenticeships and training in the skilled trades.”

— Nick Bizley, director of operations at Aspect.

MANCHESTER, UK, August 21, 2019 / — As hundreds of thousands of students in England and Wales received their A-level results (equivalent to a high school diploma) earlier this month, media reports painted a picture of declining attainment. The proportion of students receiving the top grades and the overall number of students receiving offers from their preferred university had both dropped, the former metric shrinking for the first time in 12 years.

Coupled with the increasing cost of a university education, plus economic uncertainty in the UK, it’s perhaps unsurprising that students may be re-evaulating the benefits of an expensive university education.

Another data point that flew almost completely under the radar suggests that vocational careers may currently be more appealing. Researchers for property maintenance firm recorded that around the time students would be receiving their grades, Google searches relating to careers in the skilled trades spiked significantly, in some cases doubling.

According to the research, search enquiries relating to careers and training for tradespeople increased significantly on the day most students received their grades. Searches related to starting a career as an electrician were the most popular.

Using data from Google Trends, the researchers measured search traffic for a variety of terms which would suggest intent to pursue a career as a tradesperson, for example “electrician training” and “electrician apprenticeships near me”.
Interest in potential earnings for these vocations spiked too. Search volumes for trades, accompanied with the search modifier “earnings” or “salary” spiked a few hours after the grades were issued.

Nick Bizley, director of operations at Aspect says: “There’s currently a skills gap in the construction sector, so it’s encouraging to see that people are interested in apprenticeships and training in the skilled trades. It’s interesting too that there appears to be a spike in interest in and around A-Level results day.
“This suggests that students are exploring their options more widely, which is always a good sign. If young people are taking A-levels and then considering an apprenticeship or vocational training, they’re equipping themselves for a rewarding and very worthy career. Good for them.”

The main purpose of identifying your target market is to help your company develop an efficient marketing strategy.

Wendy…You have been a huge instrument for me and my business growing to where we are today (2016). Your assistance was extremely valuable.”

— Joseph Heckel

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, August 20, 2019 / — Your target market is also known as your ideal client. They are the end-users most likely to buy your product or service. Defining the person or business that wants what you offer will put you miles ahead of your competition.

The more clearly you can define your target market the better you can understand how and where to reach them. You can start with a broad category but then you need to get very specific as to who they are and where you can find them. The reality is that although your product seems like it can reach a variety of people, trying to reach them all will not work because it's not focused enough.

With a bit of time, you can often discover exactly how you can meet your target market's needs and this is a great starting point to be able to create messages for them that will drive sales for your small business.

One of the best ways to get started is by looking at who actually makes (or influences) the buying decision. From here you can look at their needs and pain points. Figure out what they're trying to accomplish and how they can reach their goals. The key is to go way deeper than you originally thought necessary. You need to find the answers to some very specific questions so you can speak directly to your ideal client.

Your target market should also be based on research not just on your intuition. This is where a lot of small business owners go wrong. They fail to do the necessary research, or when they do make time for the research, they fail to follow-up and make the necessary changes to their key message.

“Wendy, I wanted to reach out to you to give you some feedback with regards to our coaching relationship since 2009. You have been a huge instrument for me and my business growing to where we are today (2016). Your assistance was extremely valuable. You made me aware of multiply tools that I could implement and helped my team see things from the client's point of view. You are a great business consultant and I highly recommend Entrepreneur By Design for anyone that owns a business.”

Houston ER Warns of Silent Heart Attack Symptoms in Young Adults, Adds Free EKG’s to Back-to-School Sports Physicals

Memorial Village Emergency Room

Local ER Working to Save Young Lives with Free Back-to-School EKG's, Silent Heart Attack Warning Signs for Young Athletes

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the leading cause of death among young athletes. With this heart condition, there are often very mild or no symptoms until late childhood or teen-age years.”

— Dr. Akash Bhagat, Medical Director of Memorial Village ER

HOUSTON, TEXAS, US, August 20, 2019 / — Memorial Village Emergency Room in Houston is offering free electrocardiograms (EKGs) with back-to-school sports physicals in an effort to help save young lives and raise awareness of silent indicators of heart attacks and heart conditions.

Memorial Village ER is hoping the Free EKG, in addition to a low-cost sports physical ($25), will help save lives and raise awareness for parents that heart attacks can strike even young adults and children, and symptoms often go unnoticed.

The free non-invasive medical test normally costs about $50 and takes roughly 10 minutes to perform. EKG’s can help detect heart conditions like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the condition that claimed the life of 18-year-old Houston student athlete Cody Stephens without warning, and inspired the new Cody’s Law in Texas. HCM, an inherited condition in which the heart’s walls are excessively thick, making it difficult for the heart to pump blood, is the leading cause of death among young athletes.

“Often, there are very mild or no symptoms of this heart condition until late childhood or the teen-age years,” said Dr. Akash Bhagat, Medical Director of Memorial Village Emergency Room. “The symptoms are so mild or brief, like shortness of breath or chest pain during exercise, they are often dismissed as something else. The condition often goes undetected in normal tests, but an EKG can detect and help diagnose hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.”

Dr. Bhagat says there is also an increased risk for sudden cardiac death with this condition, or a "near-miss" sudden cardiac death (a life-threatening abnormal rhythm that self-converts), which may appear to be a fainting spell. He said the free EKG’s can not only help detect dangerous heart conditions like this and save lives, they present the opportunity to educate parents on warning signs and symptoms to watch for in their kids, not only with the heart, but with athletic safety to help prevent sports injuries.

Memorial Village ER, located at 14520 Memorial Drive Suite 4, in Houston, is offering the Free EKG-$25 sports physical now through the 2019/20 school year and no appointment is necessary. Parents and student-athletes can walk-in or check-in online at

Best Schools for Architecture & Interior Design in America

Architecture school

Cornell’s Graduate School of Design

Harvard’s Graduate School of Design

Inside Harvard’s School of Design

Want to know which schools have the best graduate and undergraduate architecture and interior design schools?

AUSTIN, TX, USA, August 20, 2019 / — Here are the rankings tallied from this past year’s survey of 4,000 respondents, starting with undergraduate institutions, followed by graduate studies programs:

2019 Top 10 Architecture Undergraduate Programs:
1 Cornell University
2 Rice University
3 Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (SLO)
4 Syracuse University
5 Cooper Union
6 Rhode Island School of Design
7 Pratt Institute
8 Virginia Tech
9 Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc)
10 University of Texas (U.T.), Austin

2019 Top 10 Architecture Graduate Programs:
1 Harvard University
2 Columbia University
3 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.)
4 Cornell University
5 Yale University
6 Princeton University
7 Rice University
8 University of California (U.C.), Berkeley
9 SCI-Arc
10 University of Michigan

Once again, two American architecture schools lead the pack for architecture and interior design. For undergraduate studies, once again, Cornell University takes top honors for 2019 — a position it has held for 8 of the last 9 years. And for advanced degrees, the longtime leader of the pack is Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD), which has been ranked #1 for the last 6 years in a row.

If you’re a little fuzzy about Cornell’s place in the world of design, don’t worry — the school is perhaps better known for its technical prowess in engineering. But you probably have heard about one its famous students, the Dutch-born starchitect Rem Koolhaas.

By the early 2000s, Cornell recognized that their architecture teaching facilities and student design studios were due for a makeover. So, in an inspired “eat your own dogfood” moment, they engaged former student Rem Koolhaas to come back to re-envision the campus environment for students at Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (AAP).

The result, Milstein Hall, is a remarkable achievement. When it opened in 2011, the 47,000 sq foot building — designed by Koolhaas and OMA principal Shohei Shigematsu — created a new ‘center of gravity’ for the design arts at Cornell.

Inside Milstein, you can find the stunning new L. P. Kwee Studios — a light-filled open space whose hybrid truss superstructure boldly cantilevers 50 feet over University Avenue — providing much-needed studio space for around 285 students.

As Cornell’s needs for studio space grew, Formaspace was there to help.

With the benefit of a gift from Cornell Alumna Frances Shloss, (B.Arch. ’45), the university was able to engage NYC-based LEVENBETTS architects to undertake a sensitive renovation of historic East Sibley Hall — to create a new state-of-the-art studio space for another 60 students.

Opening in 2014, the new Frances Shloss Studios at East Sibley Hall combines the best of the past — such as original pine floors and antique windows — with the best of the future, including overhead skylights and Formaspace’s renowned industrial-strength desks, tables, and workbenches.

According to Aaron Stoneburner, the Industrial Design and Engineering Team Manager at Formaspace, the Cornell project called for over 300 Basix workbenches, each one kitted out with laminate plywood worksurfaces. Formaspace also manufactured 230 custom storage units for the Frances Shloss Studios, each one designed with two stacked file drawers.

The steel-framed Formaspace furniture incorporates key details that make life easier for students, including a pull-out shelf under the worksurface for storing drawings, built-in power strips for computers, glue guns, and other devices — all of which can be stored in the built-in drawer under the desk — as well as a soft, felt privacy panel that provides space to pin drawings, mood boards, and other important reference items.

As is so often the case, one project leads to another. As the Cornell project was wrapping up, Formaspace got a call from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, thanks to a referral from Cornell. Harvard wanted to renovate the interior studio space of its iconic Gund Hall on the Cambridge campus, and they wanted Formaspace to assist with updated furnishings.

Designed by Australian-born GSD graduate John Andrews, Gund Hall opened in 1972. Its massive angled roof allows natural light to flood into the student studio workspaces inside, while providing views of downtown Boston across the Charles River.

After decades of use, the individual studio work areas at Gund Hall were in need of a major refresh. Harvard commissioned Formaspace to create and install new furniture — right down to replacing all 160 of the original metal “spines” that anchor the worksurfaces and panels to the floor.

The new furniture was manufactured at Formaspace’s Austin, Texas factory headquarters, including 400 new worksurfaces, silver-painted pegboard panels, and updated translucent acrylic privacy panels.

Once everything was ready, Formaspace shipped the new furniture to Harvard and performed an onsite installation — in only three weeks — to minimize disruption on campus.

“Several aspects made this a challenging project for us,” says Formaspace’s Stoneburner. He notes that “the floors that comprise the five tiers of Gund Hall’s stadium-like interior aren’t level, which meant quite a bit of fine tuning during the manufacturing and installation process. Temperature shift was another issue inside the building — we made provisions for the acrylic panel fittings to allow expansion without cracking. And we were able to find new sources of Baltic birch plywood, as our regular supplier in Japan was disrupted due to a major earthquake.”

CLE Companion announced today that it is offering dozens of approved legal courses to help lawyers complete their Continuing Legal Education Requirement.

— Kristin Davidson

AUSTIN, TEXAS, US, August 20, 2019 / — CLE Companion, a fast-growing legal technology company that is changing the CLE industry by offering an affordable and easy way for attorneys to satisfy their CLE requirement, announced today that it is offering dozens of approved legal courses that are now available on-demand. Many more are in the pipeline and will be live-streamed and then archived on the website in the coming weeks.

The service is priced in three tiers – individual courses starting at $49, state compliance bundles at $159, and unlimited packages at $199. CLE Companion also offers each customer their first course for just $29.

“We wanted to create pricing that would work for all attorneys, while delivering cutting-edge, interesting content that would not only help them meet their requirement, but also serve them well in their practice,” said Kristin Davidson, the Executive Director of CLE Companion. “To that end, each course is hand-selected based on current litigation as well as attorney feedback, creating a compelling library of courses.”

Davidson interviewed thousands of attorneys, while building the platform. They urged her to make taking the courses as convenient as possible, advice she took to heart in creating CLE Companion.
