Stackpole Books is the publisher of many of those books you see in Military Clothing and Sales stores. Many of them are worth the money, in my opinion, for any “Leader.” For just over ten bucks, you can physically hold a book filled with tons of knowledge and resources with you anywhere, hand it off to your Staff Duty/ Charge of Quarters runner when they’re “bored,” and have on hand in your home or office for quick reference.

Looking for a new line of work? Want to try something different for a while? Check out Learn4Good or Asian Craigslist job listings for ESL (English Second Language) teacher Positions. Such positions can offer decent pay (~$900 monthly), free/cheap housing, food plans, and you’re in another country. I know to do so in South Korea requires a degree but China doesn’t care. Do your homework, watch and read some documentaries and stories about the worst that can happen (crappy free housing and poor management), and weigh your options. A passport is $150 and good for ten years. Or you could consider an online-based job. Just a thought.

Soldiers, the ACAP, SFL, TAP, check-the-block-before-you-separate, stupid-mandatory-five-day workshop, or whatever else you want to call it is a very informative course. Even a Reservist with his civilian life in order can benefit from the time blocks covering the resume, GI Bill, healthcare, and other things involving the transition. The entire class is also a major opportunity to network with the dozens of professionals that’ll brief you on particular topics during your enrollment in the week long course.

Let me first admit that I haven’t used Edubuntu and therefore can’t compare it to Uberstudent. Now, I want to respect the above image as much as possible. Thankfully, that’s easy to do because Ubuntu-based Uberstudent has so many useful apps pre-installed and quick links included in the menu. Though many senior Linux users may not care much for this, novice FLOSS users and college students will appreciate the pre-installed open-source apps and links which allow you to start doing everything the average user would need to do :
