Education and work, a story already written

The story of a person who wants to enter the world of work starts from afar and is often a story already written with pay someone to write my essay: family, gender and nationality are the first 3 factors that determine the success or failure of their professional history . If you are a male, come from a family of graduates and have citizenship in the country you live in, you will be more likely to continue your studies and find a suitable job.

 

 

OECD The latest report by the OECD , the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development , describes Italy as a country in sad decline :  those who come from an uneducated family do not arrive at the University,  young graduates are few and disadvantaged and women make less men's careers. The so-called social elevator does not work anymore because the educational and professional destiny of our children is already written according to the family of origin: today 90% of the graduates have at least one graduate parent while there are very few boys who can graduate from a less educated family. The reasons start from afar, even from the nursery school . We are a country where the lines of asylum, both municipal and private, are very high and only wealthy families can afford them. And the nest is already the first piece of the cultural baggage that a boy carries around. In general Italy is a country with a good level of education: it  is expected that 53% of the population will obtain a secondary diploma higher than professional guidance in the course of their existence  but the percentage of graduates is not satisfactory compared to the European average . These low levels of graduates may be partly due to insufficient job prospects and low financial returns following the attainment of the doctor's degree, although employment and retribution are always more favorable for those with a higher qualification than a lower one .

 

 

ocse2Also the skills that boys and girls choose to study are crucial for professional life . In Italy, scientific and technological studies have seen an increase in recent years and this is a good sign because the labor market requires precisely these so-called STEM disciplines. Like all OECD countries, men represent the vast majority of first and second level graduates in technology (79% first and 86% second) and in engineering, industrial production and construction (69% and 73%). Women are over-represented in education, fine arts and humanities, social sciences, journalism and information; as well as in the health and social services sector, both in the first and second degree levels, and also in the natural sciences, mathematics and statistics at the master's level, representing more than 60% of the graduates in these fields. This preponderance in girls in the humanities has led to a gap with respect to young people, both in terms of employment and retribution for the benefit of young people. The gap is not only seen at the beginning of the career but also in the long term because even the top positions of companies are mostly held by men than by women. Women are a wasted talent as women are the majority of graduates and are even better and quicker to graduate than boys. The system does not even help foreigners because they have a lower level of education and fewer expectations at work. 

To start again, it is essential to review the educational system in close contact with the work but also to ensure that there is fairness for access to education and inclusion in the labor market especially for the actors who today seem more fragile: young people, women and foreigners .

A great intro to one of the most unlikely thriller heroes around
Written in Dead Wax - Andrew Cartmel

How did it take this long for me to realize that the protagonist had no name? I just noticed that now, three months after reading the book, as I was flipping through the book to refresh my memory -- and then giving up and using the Internet to cheat. Other than the lack of name -- he's a very thoroughly drawn character, so much so that you don't notice little things like no one calling him by name.

 

I'd initially thought of the book as Rob Fleming (from High Fidelity), P.I. But that's not right -- our protagonist isn't Rob, he's Championship Vinyl's best customer. Someone who can talk to Rob about minutiae of music, who can go toe-to-toe with Dick and Barry in music trivia, who will be there any time they have new vintage records, etc. He's an expert in jazz -- and might as well be an expert in just about everything else. He lives alone, makes enough to get by (but wouldn't mind making more, if he could do it on his terms) and loves his pet cats.

 

One day, a beautiful woman approaches him with an offer he can't (and doesn't want to) refuse -- on her employer's behalf, she wants to hire him to track down an incredibly rare -- impossibly rare, some would say -- jazz record. It's rare enough that even the reissues are nigh-impossible to track down.

 

They've not been looking for long, until it's clear that there are a couple of other people who are actively looking for the record (in addition to a handful of people who always have an eye out for it). Then a fellow jazz aficionado is attacked -- and money and violence start surfacing around the vintage vinyl circuit in London. Because that's a thing that happens.

 

At some point, our protagonist starts to realize there are reasons beyond wanting a complete jazz collection to have the originals, and in conjunction with someone with family ties to the records, he plunges further into the hunt for the record and to uncover whatever dark and violent secrets that are being kept by the record.

 

This is not a story that should work. But it does -- it absolutely does. It sort of makes sense that this quest starts to involve violence, lethal violence -- and that both sides are prepared for it. The protagonist's reaction to it all is what sells it. This is a guy who just wants to spend time with his cats, track down and listen to good music, and maybe enjoy some female company. He doesn't expect to get plunged into some strange international quest, he doesn't expect to fear for his life, or to have to outsmart people who are prepared to do him harm. It's this nameless guy, the Vinyl Detective, who makes it all work.

 

In addition to the contemporary hunt for the record (which turns into a hunt for records), there's the story behind the making of the records, the people involved, the reason that people are willing to spend a lot of money to recover the records (in addition to everything else they're willing to do). It's fascinating, believable stuff -- especially the backstory to the recordings. I'd 100% believe that all the backstory actually happened that way, and that Cartmel used that true story as something to frame his novel around.

 

I don't know how to adequately capture this book (note how long it's taken me to post anything), it's a very clever story, very well told. It's exciting, it's funny (at times), it's heartfelt, it's everything you want in a thriller within a world you don't really think that much about. Not only does this strange premise hold-up well, it's apparently good enough to spawn at least three sequels (two published, one on the way). Don't ask me how it works -- well, it has a lot to do with Cartmel's skill and charm.

 

Give this guy a shot -- you'll be glad you did (and you'll wish you could listen to his record collection).

Written in Stone - Ellery Adams

Written in Stone (A Books by the Bay Mystery, #4)Written in Stone by Ellery Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Munin Cooper, who is known as the Witch of Oyster Bay, warns Olivia Limoges that death is coming, neither of them realize that it is for Munin herself who will be found dead. Olivia’s instincts tell her that someone more sinister than a mystical force is at play. Olivia has a lot on her plate as she prepares for the Coastal Carolina Food Festival. When she hears about Munin’s untimely death, however, finding the murderer takes priority. Munin left behind a memory jug full of keepsakes that Olivia knows must point to the killer but first she’s got to figure out what they all mean. With her boyfriend Sawyer Rawlings by her side, Olivia starts to identify some of the jug’s mysterious contents. Soon they find that the jugs secrets are much darker than Olivia ever suspected. Now Olivia must enlist the help from the members of the Bayside Book Writers to help solve the puzzle behind the piece of pottery and put an end to a vengeful killer before any more damage can be done.

The mystery has lots of twists and turns and has more layers than suspects, so you have no idea who the killer is and why they did what they did until the big reveal at the end of the book. The characters are well developed, well written, and realistic. The way they interact with each other as they go about their daily lives make them very believable and lifelike. Captain Haviland at times seems to be more human than dog the way he interacts with different situations.

I like that Olivia is still growing stronger and becoming more complete as a person as she works on her relationships with her family, friends, and boyfriend. I'm still on the fence about how I feel about Olivia's decision about how she deals with a personal family situation when she meets the uncle that she never knew about. I don't like that after Michel makes some racist comments he doesn't have to deal with any sort of consequences for his remarks in any way. I also think that the bedroom scenes between Olivia and Sawyer seem to be unnecessary to the plot line of the book.

Valentine on Sale Today for 99¢
Valentine - Michelle Hughes
 

 
You think you know what love is, even if you've fought against feeling that emotion your entire life. Valentine was my life altering moment. Have you ever wanted something desperately, but knew to have it would destroy everything you were? Lust is a powerful motivator. His passions were dark, and they called to a primitive part of my soul I didn’t know I possessed. He didn’t make love, instead he wanted a woman willing to be claimed, owned, giving her heart, mind, and soul. At least that’s how I saw him. The truth was I didn’t know him at all. I watched him play at a local BDSM club and everything I thought I knew about life changed irrevocably.

Who I was, what he was, none of it mattered. Our eyes met, and it was like the world stopped spinning and for that one moment we were suspended in time. I couldn’t catch my breath and he couldn’t look away. The feeling was so powerful that when my feet would move again, I ran. You think you know what love is. What if everything you thought you knew was a lie? Surrender is a powerful word. Escaping the reality of who you are and giving in to the fantasy? That’s even more terrifying. What would you do?

“Valentine is a full-length standalone novel. No cheating, alpha hero, virgin heroine, billionaire, with elements of romantic suspense. This new romance by Kindle Scout Winner, Michelle Hughes, is a seduction of the mind and will take you on one wild ride.”
