The 10 Best Jobs of 2011

By Andrew Strieber

The geeks strike back: despite enduring an industry bubble and the threat of outsourcing, Software Engineer ranks as the Best Job of 2011.

In recent years, the job market has increasingly rewarded math whizzes at the expense of less technical professionals. Actuary, Mathematician and Accountant have all ranked among the best jobs in America by offering a pleasant work environment, good salary and healthy job security. But in 2011, as the emergence of specialized technologies creates new industries, landing the year's best job requires not just skill with numbers, but a strong knowledge of computers too.

HOW THE HRCC (Catholic Church) GOT STARTED

Sunday 27 November 2011 at 10:05 am

How did the HRCC (Holy Roman Catholic Church) get from the Cross on Calvary to Rome?

work in progress, near completion

I took a course:  the Dead Sea Scrolls, at Adventures in Learning, Colby Sawyer College, given by Art Rosen, a retired business executive, who indeed is a scholar as well.   I finally found the pieces showing where the seeds of Catholicism came from, as well as the trail of events leading from Calvary to Rome.  I was sold on the theory of the existence of God from the get-go; I was into astronomy at a very young age.  I had lots of questions for the nuns that were never answered.  But it didn't matter since i was sold on the Jesus story in the first grade. 

I now believe that there is a prime mover.  St. Anselm's proslogium finally convinced me.  I know that the famed mathematician, logician and philosopher, Bertrand Russell, an atheist,  was stuck on the proslogium. Earlier in 2011I took a course on the Philosophy (Metaphysics) of God at Dartmouth Adventures in Learning.
