Hello Dr. Ogden, thank you for following me. I hope you are doing well here at WA. Thanks for your comment on my recent post.

Are you familiar with the Oceanography program at Nova Southeastern University? I have just completed my courses for a Master's Degree through their distance education program. It took 10 years part time (the courses cost a fortune now!) but I got there.

Thank you! I don't have the degree yet. I still need to complete the exit exam and edit my portfolio. The coursework is done however and I earned two graduate certificates along the way!

You are the first person I have ever met who has heard of Nova! Since I am in Alaska it is a long ways away! They let me choose Alaskan based topics for all my research such as ocean acidification effects in the Bering Sea.

Good afternoon Arthur,

I read in your profile that you have traveled to many countries. To be able to do that enriches one's life I think.To meet people from different cultures and at the mean time admire the lovely sights nature has to offer, aren't we lucky to be able to live here?
Thank you for the follow.

Hello Dr. Arthur, congratulations once more on reaching the Top 200 rank!

I just read your profile again, what an accomplished life :)
I am passionate about philosophy and as I hold an MSc in Astrophysics, I was thinking of ideas to do a PhD that's combining some cosmology scientific findings with eastern philosophy writings.

Also, I have lived in Bahrain too, teaching Physics for 2 years. Interesting experience, and not the cultural shock I was expecting!

All the best to your future endeavors,
Nicky

There might be something with consciousness theory and quantum physics worthy of a dissertation, but that's just my own narrow view...let me know how I can help...but Press On!

I am fascinated by your Ph.D. dissertation considerations...I have recently become fascinated with theories of concsiousness and how it might relate to quantum physics in some fashion...perhaps there's something there for you...just a thought...

First, American Philosophy of Sport: A Quest for Virtue, where I can get the copy of your authoring, sir? And what is the price if available at any bookstore? I believe this will be a valuable addition to my books collection library. Sports reading is my stuff since I was just a kid.

You've been tutoring in Malaysia? Awesome. Your career height is second to none. I feel great and appreciate your networking. I am thankful for that someone coming from a tiny country like me.

Thank you so much for the networking. :)

I am honored that you decided to join our community here at Wealthy Affiliate. It is an even greater honor that you chose to follow me. I have returned the gesture.
The common misbelief amongst society is that people with your credentials have all the answers. I believe that we can all offer something to each other. That we can always better ourselves through constant learning and practicing what we learn to open doors to opportunities otherwise unavailable.
I look forward to connecting with you more here at WA.

I see you are quite the accomplished and travelled man .
It's interesting that you have such an interest in sports and education. I also had this and studied physical education but unfortunately I couldn't teach with my dyslexia " in the old days" and I was too smart that I hid it until yr 3. My parents who are also teachers laugh about it now but I'm sure their bank balance didn't! I'ver made up for it since.
Interestingly I"m one of nine children ! And my mum at 74 has just finished a 4 year course as a wine and whiskey educator. She is a somellier now.Naturally my father and the rest of us are loving this.
I wish you well here at Wealthy Affiliate and look forward to chatting to you again

Arthur, maybe you can help..I have pointed my .com domain to WA but have not been able to transfer the siterubix.com (starter site) to my .com, so I've built a new site with the .com domain that I own. How do I now get rid of the siterubix version, in case there is any conflict when i go live - thanks in advance
Reply
AGOgden Premium
Now, this is just a guess, but it also depends on where you purchased your domain and how long ago you purchased it...s to ridding yourself of the SiteRubix version,there should be instructions in SiteRubix or at least a question tab in which you can pose this question...give it a try...

Hi, Arthur!

I'm pleased to meet you. Thanks for the follow. I followed you back.

I enjoyed reading your profile. I'm a fan of Nietzsche too. I have carried a quote of his for decades in my wallet. It has shaped my life. I'm sure you are familiar with it.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Friedrich Nietzsche

All the best,
Gary

Great to meet Arthur. I don't really want to say that I am truly impressed by your Bio, but it is impressive. I just finished reading

and I find you are not only articulate but enjoyable to read. I began to think about the reasons you might be here at WA with your academic stature, but that is not important. WA is a home for anyone who wishes to write in any form or manner. What I am really interested in is your column on issues facing America. The name of my blog is American Influence. I am trying to craft a way to bring the world under one roof using this saying "Sharing America, Sharing the World" I don't have your talent or educational background, but I think I can bring something to the table. I just don't want to follow you but emulate your writings (if you don't mind) so I can spread my message. Thank you for reading this and I hope to meet you one day.

Hello Arthur,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
