Distance learning coordinators, also known as instructional coordinators, are educational administrators that specialize in the distance learning curricula of academic institutions. Distance learning instructors coordinate the web-based curricula and online content of college websites, for instance, though online distance education is a relatively new form of distance learning. In previous decades, distance learning coordinators used to oversee the curricula of mail-in courses and other alternative learning methods such as videotaped or televised lectures. The job description of an instructional coordinator specializing in distance education also includes evaluating and implementing novel teaching techniques. The day-to-day operations of distance education programs at community colleges and universities involve working with faculty, staff, and students in order to raise off-campus educational standards. Without the work of distance learning administrators, students and faculty would have much difficulty communicating and contacting each other effectively. Distance learning administrators combine all of the facets of managing off-campus curricula into one job position. Developing distance education curricula is a demanding job position. Today, online college-level courses are quickly becoming more and more popular as information technology creates new opportunities for distance learning coordinators to utilize web-based strategies. As such, distance learning administrators and instructors must be well versed in the most up-to-date information technology developments, particularly developments in multimedia technology that provide teachers inventive teaching methods.
Cytotechnologists are college trained laboratory scientists that prepare and examine human cells for the presence of disease. They rely on their detailed knowledge of normal cell anatomy. They compare normal and abnormal cell anatomy and then evaluate the significance of the differences. They will identify diseases such as cancer, tuberculosis, and HIV. They identify disease in various stages and can be instrumental in identifying patients in early stages of cancer.
The history of singing goes back to the earliest recordings of mankind (as early as 800 B.C.) and songs are believed to have been used even before the development of modern languages. In western culture, singers were often restricted to only singing in churches until the fourteenth century. The rise of operas and performances thereafter laid the groundwork for today's professional singers. A singer (also referred to as a vocalist) is a person that vocalizes musical sounds with tone and pitch, and uses his or her own voice to produce music. Singers may sing solo or in a group, and are oftentimes accompanied by instrumental music. Professional singers are usually highly trained and also possess a certain level of natural singing ability including a wide vocal range or pleasant vocal resonation. Singing is an accepted art form that is taught in most public and private schools. It can also be a fun activity and be casual entertainment, such as karaoke. The physical act of singing occurs as air passes through the larynx, throat, and mouth, and it's interesting to note that vocal resonation in singing involves seven areas of the human body: - Chest - Tracheal tree - Larynx - Pharynx - Oral Cavity - Nasal Cavity - Sinuses
Ship engineers are technical job positions aboard a ship that require an engineering college degree and involve supervising and overseeing the activity of a crew of technicians. Ship engineers may be involved in coordinating the activity in virtually any technical department aboard a commercial, research and even military ship. The operation of engines, pumps, propeller shafts, electronic equipment, auxiliary equipment such as refrigerators and communication equipment is supervised, coordinated and adjusted by ship engineers, who usually have a crew of technicians in subordination. In today's fast paced world, maritime, riverine and other methods of water transport is done by commercial vessels that need to be technically maintained, repaired and monitored for proper operation. This job requires a deep understanding of technical processes, interaction between various parts of a ship's equipment, but also communication with the ship's crew and its captain. Ship engineering is a difficult yet challenging occupation due to the complexity of the task and the need to make quick decisions during sea operation, when replacement parts, new equipment and technical service may become scarce or unavailable. Ship engineers have the task to ensure that the vessel is running smoothly from a technical point of view until it reaches a port where it can undergo repairs and maintenance. Ship engineering is about being detail oriented, having excellent communication skills, and making quick decisions amidst scarce resources and uncertainty.

Customs brokers are persons who clear shipments of imported or exported goods. They are responsible for ensuring that the items meet all the regulations, laws, packing, and other requirements that are mandated by law. In addition, they must be certain that all taxes, fees, documentation, and other needs have been fulfilled. They are the gatekeepers of local, national, and international commerce. This is a massive responsibility that has severe repercussions if not done correctly. The ability to import and export goods is how countries around the globe maintain their economies and provide their citizens with the things they need. Without these global markets, people would be isolated, and their lives would be less comfortable. Regulating what comes in and out is the responsibility of a country's legislative structure. Assuring that only what is allowed comes in and out of a country is the job of the customs department. A broker works with these departments to ensure their client is not breaking any rules. Clients and governments hire brokers to keep abreast of all the latest rules and regulations, taxes, and documentation needed to bring items into or out of a country. This information varies wildly from place to place, making it exceedingly difficult for a business to keep up with everything, so the business hires a broker to do it for them.

Derived from the Greek words pais, meaning child, and iatros, which means doctor or healer, a pediatrician is a medical professional who specializes in providing medical care to children. Although there are surviving manuscripts devoted to pediatrics from earlier times, it was not until the middle of the 19th century that it was recognized and developed as a new medical specialty. Known for his many contributions to the field, Abraham Jacobi is considered as the father of pediatrics. He was born in Germany where he received his medical training, but later went to the United States to practice. It was there that he opened the first children's clinic in New York.

They had power in medieval England where they were the lord of the manor's protector. These "bailiffs of manors" were more than muscle, they were rent and fine collectors and had estate lands and buildings to oversee. Bailiffs back in those days were fine collectors, writ executors, and process servers as well as the court protection.

The entire success of a ship's voyage lies on the captain's shoulders and how well they manage their crew.
A potter, or pottery maker, is a craft artist who uses their artistic talents to create pots, dishes, vases, and other types of artwork. Most create functional pieces that are meant to be put to everyday use. However, they can also create pieces that are decorative, and meant to be appreciated purely as works of art. The history of pottery is a long one, going back to prehistoric times. Thanks to its strength and durability, pottery can survive for thousands of years, and archeologists often use these surviving pieces to study past cultures. A potter can train for decades to become a true master of the art of making pottery. But, even then, these artists never stop learning and improving.
Many people who think of anesthesiologists think of the person who provides an anesthetic before an operation. While this is true, they also provide much more than this and are responsible for many more treatments.

They work in a variety of medical settings with their patients. Anaesthesiologists provide more than just anesthetics to patients before surgery; they also watch over the patient during surgery, prepare people for surgery, and work with many patients who need pain management.
Orthodontists have the power to help people feel less anxious about their teeth. They get to help improve smiles and give their patients self-confidence through their work. Orthodontists are dentists who specialize in how the jaws and teeth are aligned. They have the important job of helping people whose teeth are misaligned or require some kind of correction – those with an improper bite, or malocclusion. Patients' general dentists refer them to orthodontists when their teeth are not straight and it is affecting them or could affect them in a negative way in the future. An improper bite can mean that a patient's teeth are growing in crooked or crowded and creating discomfort. Even if there is no pain or discomfort, a patient may simply want to improve their appearance with a straighter set of teeth. Generally, orthodontists spend a lot of time setting patients up with a proper set of braces to achieve straighter smiles.
A pipe fitter, also known as a steam fitter, is a tradesman trained in the art of organizing, assembling, creating and maintaining mechanical piping systems that must withstand high pressure. These types of systems are usually industrial and include heating and cooling systems, and involve work with steam, ventilation, hydraulics, chemicals and fuel. This occupation is often overlooked and sometimes confused with the occupation of a plumber. However, a steam fitter and a plumber differ in the fact that plumbers work with low-pressure piping systems, such as utility systems. Pipe fitters work more in welding, and not very much in the fields of water or water sanitation.
