Free coding class for high school students
By tovarichpeter   posted 24 seconds ago Moksh Jawa, 16, captures the essence of Silicon Valley startup thinking and energy. "Why not?" might be his motto. As a seventh-grader, he studied up on the Internet and taught himself coding. As a freshman, after studying on his own, he passed the AP Computer Science A exam with a 5, the highest score possible. As a sophomore, because his Fremont high school didn't teach coding, he developed his own online course and shepherded classmates through it. As a...

#investing #economics Interview with former central banker who worked at the Fed, IMF, and Citibank. Good reality check that stands in contrasts to the paper economists proclaiming their assets will never lose value, and prices will rise ad infinitum.

Obama has not changed anything regarding corporate welfare. For all the billions all we get is more sent offshore and a jobless recovery. Cutting corporate welfare is the heresy they invest a billion a year in conservative talk radio, blogs and infotainment like Fox news to keep us from talking about. Stand on your hind legs! Stop grudging the little help the poor gets and CUT THE $153 BBN corporate welfare!!! The federal budget is filled with outrageous, inappropriate,...

Diversity harms societies, lowers mutual trust
By resistance   30 comments, latest 32 minutes ago From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger. But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam -- famous for "Bowling Alone," his 2000 book on declining civic engagement -- has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give...

Rework of Format
By Patrick   11 comments, latest 42 minutes ago
At the suggestion of a user, I'm trying to make more like a news site and less just a forum. So I'm hoping each post will be something like a news story, and have at least one picture, which I will also include on the home page. I don't have the picture thing worked out yet, coming today, I hope. Default sorting of home page is now by likes, but you can just click "active" on the home...

Melissa Click: Mizzou fired me because I am white!!
By lostand confused   18 comments, latest 44 minutes ago Remember Melissa Click, the University of Missouri professor who lost her job after assaulting a student on camera and asking for some “muscle” to help get rid of him? According to Click, her dismissal from Mizzou wasn’t because she attacked a student in a pathetic bid to shut down free speech. Nope. Click says she was fired for being white.

Slash (the / character) is now allowed in post titles like this one
By Patrick   4 comments, latest 1 hour ago
The fix was to alter the nginx.conf from this: rewrite ^/([^/]+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post to this: rewrite ^/(.+)$ /index.php?title=$1 last; # specific post Let me know if this introduced any new bugs. The idea is that if a specific file exists on the server, it will be used: if (-f $request_filename) { # if file exists (like /js/bootstrap.min.js) then use it, don't rewrite break; } If the file does not exist, we redirect to /index.php and give it...

Baby Boomers Are What's Wrong With The Economy
By Indiana Jones   #economics   106 comments, latest 2 hours ago From the article: My generation, Gen X, is in far worse financial shape than our parents were at the same age. Millennials are even worse off than we are. Soon after the Great Recession ended, the Pew Research Center reported that middle-class families were 5 percent less wealthy than their parents had been at their age, even though today’s families work a lot harder — the average family’s total working hours has risen by a quarter over the past...

His goal was to display his country's flag "as loud as I can."
By Blurtman   21 comments, latest 14 hours ago
"I came out here to support my people and my father," Adrian Olivares, a 23-year-old college student who was draped in a Mexican flag, told CNN. He said his goal in protesting Trump's appearance was to display his country's flag "as loud as I can." ----- The fellow was born in the USA in the 1990's, and yet says his country is Mexico. WTF?

Will Trump beat Hillary (if she is the nominee?)
By Blurtman   73 comments, latest 16 hours ago
Trump will blast Hillary's backing of job destroying trade deals, which will appeal to a good deal of the Rust Belt electorate. Hillary has a loyal following of women with a grudge man blaming career women, and uninformed African Americans. She also carries the close minded reflexively liberal and PC crowd. But can Trump bring on board enough of the anti-Hillary Democrat leaning independents and progressive Democrats, or Democrats of any stripe that just will not vote for a neocon...

Hi Guys!! It's been a while since I've come around although I pop in from time to time. I've noticed the format has changed and there are no longer articles related to housing as before. Why is that? Patrick, did you give up? Or did you move on to bigger and better things? Anyway, the reason that I decided to post this thread is the insanity I have come upon in my recent research involving housing in the Bay area....
