"Better degrees don't automatically translate into better skills and better jobs and better lives."
All of us at one stage of our life get confused between preferences, i.e., whether one should gain skills or pursue more degrees, degree and skill may be seen as two sides of the same coin. To be successful in life, one must have a degree in addition to the necessary skills. A degree without skills is as meaningless as skills without a degree. One can say that a degree gives you a direction to gain skills in the relevant field to become a master in a particular stream. In addition to that, a degree gets you where you want to be, but skills keep you there and help you go forward in your career.
In the majority of instances, you will be unable to accomplish great things without a degree. Even if you are not very talented in your field, a degree may assist you in obtaining employment. The higher the quality of the degree, the greater is the likelihood of getting stable employment. But, it doesn't matter what degree you have if you are working on something meaningful or beneficial for the world. You don't need a degree if you know how to build an app that is beneficial for the world; you can sell it to people and generate revenue from it. However, you must excel at what you do rather than merely being competent because creating something from nothing and convincing others to utilize it takes a tremendous amount of talent. Your degree certificate will not be of use in this situation.

There is a development trend taking place across the globe, and the pace at which it is taking place can only be accomplished via the combination of degree and skills. Millions of students from various degrees graduate each year, yet the vast majority of them continue to remain unemployed. A degree is about much more than simply finding employment. The advantages extend to all aspects of one's life. Thus, education imparts theoretical information while also improving your rate of learning and capacity for in-depth understanding.
Every degree holder does not necessarily possess specialized knowledge. It is the skills in addition to the degree which contribute to the achievement of the goal. Soft skills such as language and communication skills, personality development, management, and behavioral skills are more critical when looking for jobs in today's world. No matter how many relevant degrees you have on your CV, it is skills that the employers, clients, or management see.
We can sum up by stating that a person's skill is always more essential than a degree. Those with superior skills and qualifications, as well as solid self-confidence, will almost always advance to a higher position. While a degree is necessary to get employment in a business or organization, it is insufficient to do the job effectively. The ideal is a well-balanced mix of theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience.

Well, if you'll notice then the moon takes twenty-nine days to complete its lunar cycle, whereas women's menstrual cycle is generally 28 days! Coincidence? I think, not.
It is believed that when a woman goes through her menstrual cycle, she goes through the different lunar energies. In fact, in ancient times it was said that the natural rhythm of women was to menstruate under a new moon and ovulate under a full moon.
At the same time, it is also believed that the cycle and its stages are connected to different seasons, namely, spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
Let us see how the lunar cycle is related to a woman's menstrual cycle!
It must be noted that the menstruation period is during the new moon period and also during the winter season. It is said that this is a reflective phase; a phase of silence, introspection, and solitude. During this phase, a woman's body is more sensitive, and so they're able to connect with it and hear the messages it gives. Interestingly, this is also the time when a woman naturally recycles energy as she menstruates, and hence, it's also the for their rest and recovery.
The Crescent moon represents the pre-ovulation period. This is also the season of spring, and so the time corresponds to an increase in physical energy. During this period, a woman's mental strength is at its peak and their thoughts are much clearer. At the same time, emotions are more stable during this period, and because of which women tend to be more social and outgoing.
This phase of the moon represents ovulation, and the season associated with this phase is summer. It must be noted that this period is full of energy and vitality. At the same time, this period plays a significant role in the lives of women because it's actually a fertile phase in all aspects of their life, be it personal or professional. During this period, the self-confidence and self-esteem in women tend to rise, and along with this, an increase in their sex drive can be seen very well.
This phase of the moon represents pre-menstruation, which is also associated with the autumn season. During this period, a woman's physical energy starts to decline. Metaphorically, just like a tree sheds its leaves, a woman, too, feels the need to let go of anything that is not benefiting her. At the same time, memory and the ability to concentrate decrease in this period.
I hope, now you will not think of the moon just as a celestial body, but as a companion in the lives of women!

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed Pak TV channels to stop airing what it calls indecency and intimacy in dramas, Samaa TV reported.
A notification issued by the authority states that it has been receiving numerous complaints from viewers who believe that the content being depicted in dramas does not represent the "true picture of Pakistani society".
"PEMRA finally got something right: Intimacy and affection between married couples isn't 'true depiction of Pakistani society and must not be 'glamourized'. Our 'culture' is control, abuse, and violence, which we must jealously guard against the imposition of such alien values," said Reema Omer, Legal Advisor, South Asia, International Commission of Jurists.
"Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourized in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated, as per the report.
The authority added that it has directed channels time and again to review content with "indecent dressing, controversial and objectionable plots, bed scenes and unnecessary detailing of events".
Most complaints received by the PEMRA Call Centre during September concern drama serial "Juda Huay Kuch is Tarah", which created quite a storm on social media for showing an unwitting married couple as foster siblings in a teaser for an upcoming episode. However, it only turned out to be a family scheme after the full episode aired, but by that time criticism had mounted on HUM TV for using the themes of incest to drive the plot, the report said.

Dozens of female high school and university students in Afghanistan have joined vocational centers to learn tailoring and cosmetology as the women and girls have been banned from school and university since the Taliban took over the country, Tolo News reported.
According to these girls, sitting at home is very difficult for them, therefore they are willing to learn a profession.
"It has been a couple of months that we are at home since schools and universities were closed. We have to learn a profession or a job because we can't sit like this at home," said Samira Sharifi, a student.
"I want to learn a profession for my future to help my family, we want our schools to be opened so that we can carry on with our education," said Mahnaz Ghulami, a student.
Most of the trainees in the vocational centres are students of high schools and universities.
After the closure of high schools and universities across Afghanistan, Herat female students have started gaining vocational training in the province.
"We have decided to learn tailoring along with our education," said Shaqaiq Ganji, a student.
"It's necessary for every woman to learn tailoring to help her family and her husband, especially in this bad economic situation," said Laili Sofizada, a teacher.
Due to the closure of schools and universities, the number of students in vocational centers doubled compared to recent years, the report added.
"Our classes had the capacity of 20 to 25 students but we increased it to 45 students, because most of the students have lost their spirit, and their schools and universities have closed," said Fatima Tokhi, director of technical and professional affairs at the Herat department of labour and social affairs.
The Labour and Social Affairs department of Herat said the department is working to provide more opportunities for Herat girls and women to learn vocational training.
"The art and professional sector and the kindergarten departments have started their activities, we support them and supervise their activities," said Mulla Mohammad Sabit, head of the labour and social affairs of Herat.
During the past two months, most of the women and girls who worked in state and private institutions lost their jobs and are trying to learn handicrafts and vocational training. (IANS/JB)
