Attending Online Colleges can Get you the Degree You've Always Wanted
Getting a higher education is a lifelong dream for many people. Unfortunately due to time, cost, other obligations, or accessibility, many people have to skip out on this dream. However, in today's world it has become very easy to get a college education online through online colleges.
Online colleges can either be a part of a brick and mortar school, or they can be their own separate, entirely online entity. You will have to apply, listen to lectures, turn in assignments, and take tests just like you would at a traditional school. In many cases, the syllabi are identical between the online and in person classes. If you want to go this route, it is important to find an accredited and legitimate school. You can check accreditation websites and search for online reviews in order to find a good program.
Benefits to Online Colleges
Many people think of online colleges as the "lazy" way to get a degree, and some people do not view them as highly. However, online college degree programs are just as difficult as traditional programs, and even more so for many people. However, they do come with some benefits:
- Save time – you can plan your schoolwork around your schedule. You can keep a full time job, go on vacation, and tend to children or other outside obligations without it affecting your degree.
- Save money – although tuition will likely be similar to a brick and mortar school, you will not have to pay for other fees as well as room and board, meal plans, and parking expenses. In many cases you can also keep your full time job, so there will not be a drop in income.
- More options – you can get anything from an associate's degree to a doctorate online, in many different majors. Some people do not have access to the program they are interested in locally, and online is their only option.

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
EduKick International Football Academies (EIFA) 2014/15 Residential Academic Year Soccer & Education Courses officially “kicked off” this week in Spain, England and other EduKick venues around the world.
EduKick provides academic year soccer academy boarding schools (also half-year, semester, monthly & summer language immersion football camps) in Spain, England, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil, USA and Mexico with full-time educational options (ESL, EFL, BTEC Sports Science, Foreign Language Study, IGCSE and A-Level, and USA 8-12 Online Distance Learning).
The two most popular EduKick venues worldwide are EduKick Madrid and EduKick Manchester. EduKick President & Founder, Joey Bilotta credits the popularity of these country’s world renown professional football leagues and football pedigree of it’s players and also the need for international student-athletes to learn important second languages such as English and Spanish in this modern-day competitive, global market.
Bilotta explains, “We have seen our Manchester & Madrid academies become very popular with our international footballers over the last 6 or 7 years. Parents want their children to learn a useful second language that will help distinguish them in the professional workplace and become more inter-culturally competent and experienced. The participating players are attracted to Spain and England because arguably, they have the two best professional leagues on the planet and attract the most popular superstar soccer players.”
The EduKick Manchester Football Academy is EduKick’s most popular venue this academic year with nearly 30 players attending the year-long course currently and an additional 8-10 expected to arrive in January for the half-year course offered.
Participating players can expect daily soccer training and regular matches throughout the academic year and exposure to professional clubs is provided on a constant basis in the following three (3) key ways.
Firstly, competitive friendly matches are scheduled on a regular basis. Throughout the season the EduKick Manchester squad will play competitive matches against professional and semi-professional club youth academy or development squads or against local North West College teams whose coaches are also scouts for professional and semi-professional clubs.
There are two categories of fixtures at EduKick Manchester: “Development” fixtures, where all available players receive equal playing time and exposure and “Target” fixtures, where a squad is selected based upon performance in previous training sessions and development matches.
A second way EduKick exposes players to the pro game is by holding professional club guest coaching sessions. EduKick Manchester has affiliations with many professional clubs in the North West of England and each month the EduKick Manchester squad will receive two guest coaching sessions from professional club coaches. One session will take place at the EduKick Manchester training complex and the second follow-up session will take place at the facilities of the professional club.
Lastly, EduKick conducts Open Football Trials. All EduKick Manchester participants are entered into open trial events that take place in the North West of England during the Winter, Spring and Fall (Autumn) seasons. EduKick has carefully selected and partnered with a well-respected and ethically minded UK national scouting/trials organization to give participants the maximum opportunity to expose their talents in front of the invited professional & semi-professional club scouts & coaches.
Other EduKick soccer and education academy venues include, Perugia, Italy, Cannes, France, Hennef, Germany, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and starting in 2015/16 a new US based venue in Santa Barbara, California. In each venue participating players (and parents if under 18 years of age) choose from a selection of academic pathways to combine with their daily, intense and progressive soccer training regimen.
Because of EduKick’s extensive international marketing efforts over the past decade on the internet, through educational consultants, and via social media, the ethnic diversity at EduKick International Football Academies has become extremely impressive.
For example, there are 27 international players attending EduKick Manchester presently from 18 different countries. At EduKick Madrid it’s a similar situation with the 2014/15 academy class consisting of footballers from around the world (Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas). EduKick academy players are enriched by learning about several other cultures (of their academy teammates), not just the culture of the EduKick program they happen to be participating in. This inter-cultural exchange nicely compliments the overall EduKick soccer and education experience abroad.
Because the demand from lady footballers worldwide, in 2012, EduKick made a concerted effort to design a specific football and education course for international female players. Currently in Spain, female players can register to participate for an academic year or longer in the EduKick Madrid Female Football Academy.
This soccer school for girls combines daily academy morning training sessions with insertion onto a Madrid area competitive female club for an additional three evening training sessions and weekend match play. Interested female players can “follow” the current course via their “Female Football – Soccer & Education Academy” Facebook Fan Page.
Registration is now open for footballers worldwide from 12-24 years of age to begin in January 2015 for the EduKick “Half-Year” Courses or September 2015 for the “2015/16 Academic-Year” Course.
To inquire or to Register, Interested parties please contact EduKick direct at the contact information provided in this release.

GoNow Technologies, an innovator in developing reprogrammable companion cards for mobile eWallet technology, has been granted a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, No. 8,788,418, for the secure storage and two way communication from reprogrammable card-based EMV chip and a smartphone-based eWallet. This invention will both add EMV to reprogrammable cards and will insure a new level of card security. EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) is a global interoperability payment standard first developed by MasterCard and Visa to ensure that their payment and debit cards were accepted everywhere.
This new patent complements GoNow’s first granted patent, 8,671,055, for secure two-way phone to card communication, with respect to the movement of traditional card information into and out of an e-wallet, Universal Card with magnetic stripe, and Secure Element.
The GoNow™ Card with its embedded Secure Element make it an ideal candidate for executing the data authentication, card confirmation and cardholder verification required to perform an EMV contact/contactless transactions, as well magnetic card transactions.
As in traditional EMV cards, the GoNow™ Card provides a trusted environment within the card’s Secure Element in which the card issuer(s) can securely encode and store the cardholder’s security credentials as well as the cryptographic keys. The secure information is loaded and stored by the card issuer(s) onto the EMV card at the time the card is personalized. This process of loading and storing the secure data is identical regardless whether the card is a traditional EMV card or a GoNow™ Card. The GoNow™ Card can be configured as either a traditional EMV contact card, or EMV contactless card (which can use NFC communication with the smartphone). The type of card is determined at the time card is personalized by the issuer.
The GoNow™ Card’s Secure Element acts as a vault making the secure data impervious to access by fraudulent parties. The level of security and encryption built into the GoNow™ Card’s SE ensures that the card information cannot be extracted and used to clone the EMV card. The methods in which the EMV card is authenticated for both online and offline transaction (DDA, SDA, CDA or CVM) are identical to the methods used by the issuers to authenticate a traditional EMV card.
When paired with any eWallet application on a smartphone, a single reprogrammable GoNow Card can store more than 50 credit, debit, ATM, loyalty or gift cards. The user simply selects the payment or other card on the phone eWallet and the magstripe on the card is instantly programmed with the key data for the card selected. The GoNow™ Card can then be used at any traditional magstripe, EMV, Dip, ATM or other reader, with no changes necessary to current retailer terminals or back office systems.
About GoNow: GoNow Technologies (http://www.gonowcard.com) is the creator of the GoNow eWallet card, a “super smart” card that can be re-programmed wirelessly by the phone to become any credit, debit, loyalty or stored value card. The company is funded by prominent angel investor Groups including Jumpstart New Jersey Angel Network, Boston Harbor Angels and Ben Franklin Technology Partners of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
