The Best Online Banks of 2020


Best Online Banks Apps

Long gone are the days when there was but a single bank in town where everyone went to store their valuables.

Alternatives to the traditional brick-and-mortar bank branch have been opening across the world, or more accurately, across the digital world, in the form of so-called “online banks.”

While they don’t operate massive branch networks, they offer much more for your bottom line, such as:

  • Market-leading interest rates
  • Low fees
  • Exceptional online and mobile banking experiences

They have their drawbacks as well, but those haven’t stopped a bevy of depositors from making the switch to online banking.

In fact:

You may already be banking digitally for the most part anyway.

MyBankTracker analyzed more than 50 online banks and their accounts to uncover the ones that deliver the best banking products and features.

Internet Time was invented and marketed by the Swiss watch company Swatch in the late 1990’s.

New Time Unit – the .beat

Instead of dividing the virtual and real day into 24 hours and 60 minutes per hour, the Internet Time system divides the day into 1000 “.beats”. Each .beat is 1 minute and 26.4 seconds.

New Meridian

Internet Time is based on a new Meridian (as opposed to the Greenwich Meridian). This new Meridian goes through Swatch’s office in Biel, Switzerland and is called the BMT Meridian.

BMT – the reference for Internet Time

Biel Mean Time (BMT) is another invention of Swatch. It is linked up to the Central European Winter/Standard time, which is UTC + 1 hour. When it is Midnight in BMT, the Internet Time is @000 beats, Noon is @500 beats.

7 Ways Technology Is Impacting Modern Education

Technology in the classroom can be so much more and so much better than the stereotypical cell phone going off in the middle of class. Technology can actually be a major tool, both in terms of pedagogical resources and in terms of connecting with the younger generations. But how does this work?

The top seven important concepts to understand when examining the use of technology for educational or instructional purposes include:

1) Active engagement with the learning material.
Technology is interactive, and students learn by doing, researching, and receiving feedback. This helps students become passionate about what they are learning. For example, they may study geography using interactive software such as Google Maps or Google Earth, instead of looking at a picture.

2) Use of real-world issues.
This model encourages the use of real-world problems in the classroom. By using the Internet, students can research real issues happening at that
