In the United States and its territories, adults who left high school before graduation have another way to secure a high school equivalency (HSE) credential.
Through testing, you can demonstrate you have the same skills and knowledge as a high school graduate. Once you pass the test, your state or jurisdiction will issue you a high school equivalency certificate or high school equivalency diploma.
Having your HSE can open a lot of doors. People who have a diploma or equivalency earn more than people who don't. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, someone with a high school diploma has median weekly earnings of $679, while those without one come in at $494. Also, many jobs and training programs require that you have one or the other.
States typically promote and endorse one or more high school equivalency diplomas. Find the high school equivalency options offered in each state. Please note that states do change the options they support, so check with your state's adult education agency for up-to-date information.

As our lifestyle improves, our health also improves, and we experience less disease and sickness. When most people are asked what it means to be healthy, they normally respond with the four components of fitness mentioned earlier (cardiorespiratory ability, muscular ability, flexibility, and body composition). Although these components are a critical part of being healthy, they are not the only contributing factors. Physical health is only one aspect of our overall health.

It is difficult to think of an area of modern life that has not been touched by ceramics. Our homes are made from brick walls, held together by cement made from calcium silicates, and glass windows, also made from silica. Inside, the walls are plastered with ceramic gypsum, porcelain bathrooms are decorated with tiles made of clay and talc, and kitchens stacked with pottery and glass have decorative ceramic floor tiles. Clay pipes link our homes to the sewage system and ceramic insulators are essential in connecting them to the electricity grid. Back inside the house, that electricity flows through television sets that contain more ceramic insulators, components such as capacitors and resistors made from ceramics, computers based on silicon chips, magnetic ceramics used in the electric motors of appliances such as vacuum cleaners and food blenders, and piezoelectric ceramics used in tiny headphones and loudspeakers. Telephone calls and cable television signals may be piped to the home through glass fibers, while other kinds of glass fibers keep heat inside the walls and the roof. That heat may itself be provided by a heated ceramic filament, just as lighting comes from glass bulbs or fluorescent tubes.
