Back in the 1970s I attempted to use my degrees in liberal arts to pursue a teaching career and pretty much had the same results. Fortunately, I was able to shift my abilities to a good career in the airline industry, forsaking my degrees.

According to the National Weather Service, the high temperature in northern Utah is expected to reach the mid-50s on Sunday, climb to 60 degrees by Monday, then jump to a high of 70 degrees by Tuesday.

Overnight lows for both days will be in the mid-30s. Highs Monday will reach 60 degrees giving us just a taste of the upcoming spring season.

By early adulthood, a third have college degrees, and those degrees help them earn more than ever before. So scholars at the Pew Research Center were puzzled when they found that the median, inflation-adjusted income of 25- to 32-year-olds had changed very little since 1965. The reason, they discovered, is that even though a college degree is worth more, a high school degree alone is worth a lot less.
