4 Reasons Why MPH Degrees Will Bring a Better Future for the Healthcare Industry

PrintToday, the whole world faces problems with healthcare administration, and the need for well-educated problem solvers in the field of public healthcare has never been greater. More people who have completed an MPH degree, or Master of Public Health is one of many ways to ensure the problems and issues the world is facing in the field of healthcare will be addressed by professionals who have the necessary training and educational background to ensure that these issues will be resolved in such a way as to make sure the healthcare industry runs smoothly and that every individual receives the right healthcare.

1.    Online Availability

Getting an MPH is difficult, and can take years to complete. Due to the wide spectrum of research and theoretical knowledge that’s necessary, most MPH degrees were taught exclusively on campus in the past. This has changed recently as more and more universities are enabling students to complete this diploma online, enabling them to both work in the field and gain hands-on experience while completing the diploma. In addition, there are about five different specialization fields, public wellbeing administration, epidemiology, behavioral sciences, occupational and environmental wellbeing, and biostatistics. With this diploma, graduates can work in public or private capacities, as administrative or scientific experts on public wellbeing and health.

2.    Student’s awareness

A degree in MPH will not bring about a bigger salary compared to a degree in MHA – Master of Healthcare Administration. However, due to the increasing number of public healthcare issues and problems of the world, including epidemics and behavioral issues, students are becoming more and more aware that something needs to be done, and they are willing to be the ones who do it. In other words, working as an expert in public healthcare is a rewarding, worthwhile job that ensures you will get to help the whole world and the students are becoming increasingly aware of it.

3.    Schools create attractive curriculums

Many schools and universities are doing their best to create curriculums and programs to attract students. They have incorporated social entrepreneurship to their programs, as well as generated many grants and scholarships for prospective students. Students get to learn how to help people by applying entrepreneurship skills, and some universities have received donations and grants that will be used specifically to help students fund their degrees in MPH.

4.    Beneifts for public healthcare

With the increased amount of students who enroll in Master’s studies of Public Healthcare, the world will get more problem solvers who will have the intelligence, knowledge and drive not only to solve the current issues of public healthcare, but perceive future possible problems and learn how to prevent them and minimize the negative effect these problems might have on the world. Master’s in Public Healthcare will bring about the world becoming a better place, which is one of the most attractive aspects for prospective students who wish to get a degree in healthcare.

Tea Party

The Tea Part was a response to ObamaCare which the Republican Party portrayed as an Entitlement. It was, in the beginning a way to get us to a single payer system of Health Care that would have helped MediCare, and MedicAid to meet increasing costs. The focus of the Tea Party was cutting what they termed as entitlements like welfare, food stamps, and MedicAid. They are now shifting gears to go after Social Security, and MediCare.

The Paul Ryan pick for Vice President was a concession to the Tea Party voting block. Paul Ryan has rambled out of one committee to another talking about spending cuts as the best way to lower the deficit. You’ll notice he never said to cut the military or raise taxes, he is just using budget cuts as a way to get us out of debt. The idea is that tax cuts will grow the economy.

Harsh reality has come to the Tea Party with the Obama win. Next we need to get rid of those Congress people the Tea Party swept into power. We now have the time to concentrate on that.

My feeling is that the Tea Party is a blight on our American History wrapped in back water politics by a bunch of hillbilly bubbas. I t

The Business of Politics

The Federal Reserve said it will expand its holdings of long-term securities with open-ended purchases of $40 billion of mortgage debt a month in a bid to boost growth and reduce unemployment.

This is another failed attempt at policies that will lower interest rates, and stimulate borrowing. After all if the bank can sell worthless paper to the Fed, banks might as well make more loans.

Well, banks are doing just fine already.

What the Fed should have done is held fast until after the election. I now know that Tim Geitner is putting on a show at the IMF summit, but the United States will be in for a shock to the system if we change Presidents. I’ll talk more about the Tea Party politics that the Republican canidates are bringing, but for right now let’s focus on how this administration has propped up the economy.

No country has used austerity well this time around. The ones that have are in much more serious trouble than we are. Most governments who can afford to have used stimulus to keep the economy chugging along. We used stimulous extensively to develop more industry, such as green energy, bought some car companies, consolidated banks, and bought up worthless mortgages.

In my opinion, the last couple of items which is to consolidate banks, and buying worthless mortgages is the mistake. I think the government should have let banks fail, and put the burden of bankruptcy on them. Well, we may get to see that happen if this stimulus goes away.

20% Discount for Seattle House Cleaning

For the past few years we have worked on our pricing. The price per hour continues to go up, but this year we are cutting back. The reason is that we have put back to work the entire set of people we had laid off in 2008. We have other people who have worked for us part time that we would like to have with us full time.

We have the best people in the market.

People gravitate to our company because we respect them for the hard work they do, and the talent they bring to our work each day.

So in the spirit of employing more people we are offering you a discount of 20% for Seattle House Cleaning until September 30th 2012.

That means cleaning will cost $96 per hour for a team of three which is a 20% discount from the $120 per hour which is the going rate for the National Brand Franchises. $120 gets you an hour and fifteen minutes from us, and $144 is for an hour, and a half.

Building today’s Real Estate Portfolio

You can always build a Real Estate portfolio, no matter what the market is doing. There is always something to buy that will fit your criteria, it’s just harder to get some times. My real question is why anyone would want to build a portfolio today because of all the deep pocket investors that are flush with cash. I look at Ballard as the perfect example. All of those apartment buildings have given new life to Ballard, but it may not be the life Ballard wanted.

Massive development has brought in thousands of housing units that cater to renters, who may become life time renters. There is no reason not to be a renter if you can make better equity by managing your money, and outside investments. Many people use gold as an example. If you saved your down payment money with gold purchases over the past ten years you may have made a profit better than other savings vehicles. I personally don’t like gold it’s just a topic that gets thrown into the housing bubble mix.

That’s right, I used the example of the housing bubble. We had a major Real Estate market crash in 2008. Since that time the Federal government has done everything it could to prop up the price of property and created another bubble through deep pocket, all cash investor buying. Those Real Estate purchases have been for returns no greater than 6%, but there may well be some price appreciation based on when, and what the investor bought.

I see other opportunities for cash, but Real Estate may be safe with the backing of the United States government. I have been wrong before, and will be again, but I don’t see how a small portfolio investor is going to come out well in today’s market place. To me it’s a sever gamble to build a Real Estate portfolio. I’d wait until the Fed moves on to building a stronger economy.

Day Trading

Day trading is a term used for stock market investment done usually from home by an investor who is at home or a one person office. It’s an addictive practice that relies a lot on personal research. I forget about day trading because what I do is all Real Estate related. I would day trade if I weren’t so overly involved in our small business. Small business is the best investment any one cam make today.

Before this new stock market initiation there was only one investment strategy for us to have which would be in all cash Real Estate, small investments less than $100K. Probably there are good deals in emerging markets in that price range, but I don’t think you need to go any further than Miami. Here in Seattle you can go South to Tacoma  to find $100k properties, or less. The rental returns pay higher than any bank.

I spent some time looking at the stock market in the past couple of days, and listened to Cramer a few times. With this new wave of knowledge I started looking more closely at some of the companies that I follow, from afar, through the financial news.

For as much attention as the stock market, and commodities demand there are some real sleeper companies that are traded in the stock market, and some that are coming out with Initial Public Offerings that are pretty advanced.

I don’t have stock tips for you. All I’m saying is that there are places for cash that may have great returns. It’s something I would probably explore, more, and will set up an account this week end, with a financial planner. I don’t think it’s a place I want to go alone.
