Exclusive: Bahraini nurses’ union leader calls for solidarity| | Socialist Worker

Rula al Saffar is the president of the nursing union in Bahrain, assistant professor at the college of health science and head of the emergency nursing programme.

She has just been sentenced to 15 years in prison – one of 20 medical workers, including doctors, nurses and paramedics, jailed this week in a military trial.

Their crime? Treating the injured during the demonstrations in February this year, which saw the Pearl Roundabout in the centre of Bahrain’s capital Manama occupied by protesters calling for democracy.

Rula spoke to Socialist Worker as she awaits the result of her appeal – and made a call for solidarity from health workers.

“We are all professionals, health workers and medics who helped people in a crisis,” she said.

“I believe we are being punished because we are witnesses to what happened here on 17 February. That was the day they started using live ammunition on people.”

According to this article, Engineering and Computer Science majors are the two best paying majors (base pay) once you have your bachelors. Lists like this are important when choosing your major, as college is a financial decision and you should only do something if it's financially sound and there's a hope of return.

Applying for colleges is a stressful time and full of answering questions and writing essays. Finding a website that can give tips and guidance on writing essays was essential. One thing that was extremely helpful was writing a good enough essay that it could be used multiple times as a true description of myself. 

Taylor Anne Teachworth's curator insight, January 15, 2014 2:21 AM

This is a FANTASTIC resource. I am the kind of person that likes to see what other people have done so I have kind of a mental outline of what people are looking for. This website gives you sample essays from some Ivy League schools, as well as others. It was a HUGE help!

Lars A's curator insight, November 17, 2014 3:34 PM

Since Elementary School we've been practicing how to write essays-and now it matters more than ever! College application essays are tricky-you have to stand out from the crowd and be unique, but make sure your essay is well-formatted and sticks to what you've learned in school. The basics are still very important: you need a intro the grabs attention, a body of work that well supports your claim, and a conclusion that effectively summarizes the paper. When writing, it's paramount to consider your audience? Who is going to read your writing, and what are they looking for when they read it? Your essay has to display to the college why you think they are a good fit for you, and why you think you're a good fit for them.

This article is useful in seeing which colleges will make your education worth the investment. I applied to one school in the top 200 of Return of Investment, The University of Washington (In-State) ranked at 115. It is nice to see that the investment and the sacrifice that we are making is worth it in the future to get a head and in becoming a success.

Lauren Stiger's curator insight, January 12, 2014 3:03 PM

This article lists colleges based off of return of investment. When looking into colleges to attend it is important to consider the value of the education you are getting as compared to the cost of attending. Of the schools I applied to these made the list: Washington State-In State(235),Oregon State- Out of State(264), Central Washington-In State (352). This article gives the 2012 cost, 30 year net ROI, and the annual ROI. The ranking is done by PayScale of over 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities, including private, public and for-profit schools.  To determine the potential financial return of attending each school  the cost of tuition and the payoff in median lifetime earnings associated with each school is considered.
