50 years ago today, we (the human race, anyway) sent the first man into space. That man, Yuri Gagarin, was a Russian/Soviet cosmonaut who was chosen out of a select few to become this poster-boy of human accomplishment. But before him, there were other, non-human, not necessarily willing participants in the space race.

I work for a large health insurance company. In our particular building there are many different departments that do different things. The company offers tuition reimbursement. I don't know the full details of how it works, but basically they will pay for a percentage of your tuition if you pass the class, course, program, etc. You must stay with the company for a given amount of time if they pay for it, etc. Nothing out of the norm. A great thing, Yes?
