Interesting Facts About MARINE BIOLOGY

Marine biology is the study of life in the oceans and other saltwater environments such as estuaries and wetlands. All plant and animal life forms are included from the microscopic Picoplankton all the way to the majestic blue whale, the largest creature in the sea—and for that matter in the world.

The overriding goal in all of science is to find the truth. Although following the scientific method is not by any means a rigid process, research is usually conducted systematically and logically to narrow the inevitable margin of error that exists in any scientific study, and to avoid as much bias on behalf of the researcher as possible.

The primary component of scientific research is characterization by observations. Hypotheses are then formulated and then tested based on a number of observations in order to determine the degree to which the hypothesis is a true statement and whether or not it can be accepted or rejected. Testing is then often done by experiments if hypotheses can produce predictions based on the initial observations.

The essential elements of the scientific method are iterations and recursions of the following four steps:---->

Characterization (observation)
Hypothesis (a theoretical, hypothetical explanation)
Prediction (logical deduction from the hypothesis)
Experiment (test of all of the above)
These steps are all used in the study of marine biology, which includes following main sub fields:
Microbiology, Fisheries & Aquaculture, Environmental Marine Biology, Deep Sea – Ecology, Ichthyology, Marine Mammology & Marine Ethology.

International Students Top One Million For First Time US News

Among other Open Doors’ findings:

  • The US institutions drawing the most international students were New York University (15,543), University of Southern California (13,340), Arizona State University (12,751), Columbia University (12,740) and the University of Illinois at Urban-Campaign (12,085).
  • China remains the top country of origin, with almost twice the number of students in the US as India, but India’s rate of growth outpaced China’s. Enrollments from India grew 24.9%, to 165,918 students.
  • Most of India's growth occurred at the graduate level, and particularly via participation in a programme known as optional practical training or OPT, which allows foreign students to work in the United States after earning their degree.
  • OPT enrollments increased 22.6% last year, while undergraduate and graduate enrollments each increased 7.1% and 6.0%, respectively. A federal rule this year lengthened the extension for OPT students in the STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – fields from 17 to 24 months, and enables students to apply for an extension twice during their academic career.
  • Saudi Arabia sent the third-largest number of students, 61,287, to the United States, followed by South Korea, which dropped to fourth place following a 4.2% drop in enrollments, to 61,007.
  • Europe continues to host more than half of all US students going abroad, with about a third of all US students choosing the United Kingdom, Italy or Spain in the 2014-15 academic year.
  • The Ebola crisis likely deterred US students from traveling to Sub-Saharan Africa; that region saw a 20% drop.
  • An 18.2% drop in US enrollments from Brazil was the most dramatic decline, and was attributed primarily to the Brazilian government’s freeze on the budget of its Scientific Mobility Program, which had sponsored many Brazilian students’ US studies.

How Indian Students Abroad Can Get The Indian Notes Exchanged

Right now, the most discussed topic in India is the demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes by the Indian govt. The announcement was made suddenly last evening by the Indian PM Narendra Modi informing the citizens about the recall of the currency notes. This led to a lot of panic and confusion among the people who are scrambling to exchange their notes.



·         The situation is even more confusing for Indian students who are currently studying abroad. Many students going abroad usually carry a few Indian currency notes with them. If you are one of them, what can you do if you are not going to visit India before 31st March 2017?

·         Those of you who have cash on hand but will not be returning before your academic session is over can convert up to Rs. 5000 to foreign currency at the airport exchange counters within 72 hours of the announcement. However, you will have to provide proof of purchasing the specified bank notes.

·         You can get the foreign currency changed into Indian rupees again once you return to India, but it is likely that you will lose money during the exchanges.

·         On the other hand, if you have cash money in India, you can authorize someone living in India to exchange the notes on your behalf by writing an authorization letter to get the notes deposited into your bank account. The authorized person will then go to the bank with an identity card and the permission letter you wrote. 

Things to keep in mind :-

·      All banks will remain closed to public on 9th November 2016.

·         All ATM will not function on 9th and 10th November 2016.

·         Deposit the notes at banks or post offices from 10th November to 30th December.

·         Exchange the notes at a bank or post office till 24th November up to the limit of Rs. 4000.

·         While exchanging the notes, take along your Adhaar Card and PAN card.

·         After 30th December, the notes can be exchanged only at RBI specified offices.

MBA in India vs. MBA abroad

A large number of bachelor degree students and almost all employed mid-level executives are in a run for an MBA degree. Students have option to pursue MBA through full-time, part-time, distant and of late online mode. While fresh graduates usually go for full-time course; part-time, distant and online courses are favored by employed executives. They compare options in terms of quality of education, experience, cost, placement, duration, flexibility etc. However the scenario is bit different for fresh graduates aspiring to pursue full-time MBA.

According to Mr. Aslam Shaikh of Aliff Overseas Consultants, full time MBA students often get confused whether to study in India or go abroad. He elaborated and compared between MBA in India and MBA abroad, for students to avoid confusion and get a clear picture. He put into perspective 5 major points, Admission, Duration, Quality, Exposure and Cost.

We will first consider admission into a MBA program. In India students for full-time MBA has to go through a series of admission and screening test to get admission into a MBA program. On the other hand it’s just a single test to qualify for a MBA program. Secondly, Indian MBA programs are 2 years in duration whereas MBA programs abroad ranges between 1 and 2 years in duration.

Speaking of the quality of studies, Mr. Shaikh said, comparatively Indian MBA colleges are decades behind their counterparts abroad. Curriculums in Indian colleges have not been changed since long and miss on the latest developments or demands of the industry. Colleges abroad constantly update their curriculums and align their courses with industry needs.

Fourth most important point according to MR. Shaikh is that students enrolled into foreign universities experience a diverse culture, and global exposure through international internships.Since the focus of the entire MBA curriculum abroad is current industry requirements, so they give stress on acquiring hands-on industry experience through internships. MBA colleges abroad often invites top officials from big international companies as visiting faculties to conduct classes and shares their experience with students.

Mr. Shaikh sighted a practical example “It’s something similar to a big Indian corporate who never tries to find a candidate abroad; and an international company will not search for potential candidate in India. You are always a couple of steps ahead with study abroad programs.”Work experience in an international company, undeniably adds prestige and profile to a student’s Resume. Moreover you stand a chance against your international peers to bag an international job.

Mr. Shaikh concluded with the most important point in this debate by comparing the cost. “Students and parents alike live with the myth that studying abroad is expensive and will cost them a fortune. It’s time to come out of such thinking and compare the cost vis-à-vis. Students and parents will get surprised, it’s the same or in some case may be even less expensive to study MBA abroad.” Mr. Shaikh headed Aliff overseas, a premier study abroad consultant based in Mumbai, offers students with study abroad at Indian cost options. An average Indian student spends around 6 to 15 lakhs for MBA in India; studying MBA abroad costs something in between 6-18 lakhs.

International MBA students get to cover a part of their expenses through part-time jobs, which you cannot do in India. They also get stay back options to find jobs in foreign countries and generally land up working for good international companies.
