Heidi that's great, what would happen is selling print copies isn't winning money anymore? Could the company manage to stay active with only online readers?

My specialty is on Control and automation, so I would like to work where I get to see the parts being made, now with cars having computers it just makes everything more fun!

Well, the idea is that as print copies go down, online subscriptions will go up, and so far that is true We don't charge as much for online - but the costs of production are less. The younger readers - like folks in their 20s and 30s - are also much more willing to pay for services they get online. In the early days, most people had the idea that whatever they got online was free - but that is changing.

That does sound like fun - and it seems you're coming into that at a good time, what with self-driving cars just around the corner.

It helps that these new kids are more confortable with paying for apps and other stuff online, I've seen people have mixed feeling with that, online es better to read but the classic is getting the actual paper.

Yeah, so that's my goal. But getting any job at this time and I'll be happy.

What do you do?
Absolutely nothing I'm on disability so I try to stay as busy as possible. I'm thinking about going back to school but at 30 I don't know what I could get a degree in and actually apply it towards a job

It's never too late! As long as you want you can do it, is it easy to study in the states?

It's fairly easy if you're going to a community college.

If you guys have Netflix you should check out Altered Carbon and The Cloverfield Paradox

Most regular colleges here are really pricey, but there are community colleges all over. The available courses can be pretty limited, though, and most community colleges don't offer full degrees.

I'm hoping to at least take some courses once I retire. I don't want my brain to atrophy!

Yeah, the ones here only offer the smallest degree possible and they're all 2 year schools and then The university's which are 4 year colleges offer bachelors and master degrees as such.

That's one of the good things of my country, it's easier to get a good career.

I'm still hoping someday we'll get an actual sequel to the first movie

I heard the same thing about the first movie, so I've always avoided it.
