The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

Rank #1: #88 Not in Name Only!. The Greek root word onym means “name.” This root is the word origin of a fair number of English vocabulary words, including synonym and antonym. The root onym is easily recalled through the word anonymous, which refers to someone going around without a “name.”Like this? Build a competent vocabulary with Membean.

Rank #2: Part-time vs. Full-time MBA. When considering the pursuit of an MBA, one of the first options you're likely weighing is going back full-time versus part-time. Historically it has been deemed that for graduate students in business, the decision to attend school full-time vs. part-time largely depends on whether you want to continue on a pre-established career path or alternatively change careers or industries. However with the recent recession and unemployment trends, more prospective MBA candidates are trying to maintain their current jobs, pursue a part-time MBA and in some cases use their new network of schoolmates, or career placement offices on campus, to parlay into a new career. Today, only 20% of business school students are enrolled in a full-time, two-year program. Part-time, evening and weekend programs account for half of current students and the rest are enrolled in executive, distance-learning and other smaller programs.
Rank #1: 5 Skills You Need To Master To Get 26+ On TOEFL Speaking. In a new episode of The TOEFL Podcast, Paul Austin, head instructor at TOEFL Speaking Teacher speaks about the five skills you need to master to get 26+ on the TOEFL Speaking section. First, Paul tells us about his work and how he created his website Toefl Speaking Teacher. He noticed that many students struggled with the TOEFL Speaking section, and there were very few good resources. Also as he started to work with the students on the Speaking section, he noticed that a lot of students needed to get 26+ on the TOEFL Speaking section and tried to figure out what is required to get 26 on TOEFL Speaking. As a result of his experience, he found the five skills you need to master to get 26+ on the TOEFL Speaking section. The first skill is Fluency. Fluency is your ability to deliver a response smoothly, with minimum interruptions. Skill number two is TOEFL Speaking Tactics: Timing, Content, Organization, and Note-taking. The third thing Words and Phrases. You want to show the evaluator that you can speak English well, you are not using templates, you are using natural sounding English. Skill number four is your Accent and Intonation. It´s the most challenging one to improve because it takes more time. Skill number five is your Pace of Speech. You need to speak fast enough, 100- 105 words on Question types 1 and 2 and about 125 in Question types 3 to 6. A bonus skill that effects everything is Confidence. You really need to work on improving your Confidence to get 26+. The advice that Paul gives is not to focus on the score you need to get but focus on improving those five skills. Then you'll be good enough to get 26+ Also, Paul emphasizes, that the part of getting 26 is accepting that you haven't been perfect in the past, but now it's time to change, now it's time to get a professional help.
Rank #2: How Should You Prepare for TOEFL. Summary In Episode 5 of The TOEFL Podcast, Paul Austin of TOEFL Speaking Teacher talks about how you should prepare for the TOEFL and what resources you should use. He explains when you should just study on your own, when you should use premium resources, when you should register for group lessons or take private lessons. The first option is self-studying on your own using free resources online. For many students, it's not enough. The second option that you have is to purchase premium self-study resources. The third option is to take group lessons, and these are often a pretty good choice, as taking lessons in the group environment will help you get well-prepared to take the TOEFL test. The fourth option is private lessons, which are often a little bit more expensive, but the most effective. Paul explains about some of the factors that can determine what you should do. First of all is your previous English experience. Other factors can be the score you want, how you handle stress in the test environment, how much time you have to prepare for the TOEFL and how much money you can invest in your preparation. You need to pick up a professional service that helps you prepare for the TOEFL as soon as possible. Knowing your options and understanding those options can help you make the best decision possible. The TOEFL Speaking Response Analysis can help you know exactly what´s preventing you from getting a high score.
