U.S. ranks extremely poorly in foreign language instruction in public schools

Just 20% of U.S. K-12 students will study a foreign language, typically Spanish, and starting around age 15-16. In Europe, 91% of students will study a 2nd language, starting at age 6 to 8.

Being “International” helpful to Youtube channel success?

I noticed one of the Youtubers I follow had an unexpected international background. I began looking at other Youtubers I follow and near 100% of have extensive international experience.

Easiest Countries to Move – if not too old

Many online resources discuss “easy countries to move to” – but if you check the fine print, this applies primarily if you are young – usually less than 35 to 55 years old. Above those ages, and the number of countries you can move to is a rapidly diminishing list.

I would like to do an extend stay in another country, somewhat similar in duration to a typical college student’s study abroad of 4 1/2 to 9 months duration. Due to 90-day visa limits in almost all countries, this is near impossible for someone at my age to replicate.
