6 Great Ways to Teach Your Kids to Code - Yahoo Tech

Jason O. GilbertTechnology Editor

Everyone is familiar with the three R’s of education. But there’s a fourth R that’s nearly as important as reading, ’riting, and ’rithmetic but rarely taught in schools: ’riting code. 

By the year 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the U.S. economy will need more than 1.4 million programmers — or nearly four times the number of students who will graduate with computer science degrees over the next 10 years. Yet 90 percent of schools don’t offer any computer programming classes, according toCode.org

Efforts to save the tiger are being undermined by a lack of information about how many of the endangered cats live in the wild, the conservation group WWF said on Tuesday.

 

In 2010, a "tiger summit" in St. Petersburg, Russia, set the goal of doubling the number of wild tigers by 2022, against a baseline population believed at the time to be as few as 3,200.

"This figure was just an estimate," Michael Baltzer, head of WWF's "Tigers Alive Initiative" said in a press release coinciding with Global Tiger Day.

Tonga May Have Been a Vast Seafaring Empire - LiveScience and #Asmatcollection / Dominique Rice

LiveScience.com 





The seafaring empire of Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean once spanned more than a thousand miles, serving as the hub through which distant settlements exchanged artifacts and ideas, researchers say.

 

This finding could help explain the rise of monumental structures throughout the Pacific starting about 700 years ago, scientists added.

Tonga is an archipelago of about 160 Polynesian islands, with the core of the kingdom covering an area of about 195,000 square miles (500,000 square kilometers). The islands, located about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand, were first settled about 2,800 years ago by the Lapita people.

10American Militiamen Are Terrified Of Fireworks And Washington Burns Down




It seems a little silly today, considering that the reckless detonation of colorful explosives has become an American tradition, but it’s true. What we now use to celebrate our independence once scared away all the soldiers defending Washington, and the nation’s capital was burned to the ground.

The One Person Everybody In Baseball Wants To Be The Next Commissioner Doesn't Want The Job - Reuters / Business Insider

Business Insider 




Mike Segar/Reuters

Bud Selig was the commissioner of MLB for 16 years.

Greenberg is the son of Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg. He went to Yale. He played professional baseball for five seasons. He is a lawyer. He was an agent. He was the deputy commissioner under Fay Vincent in the early 1990s. He started two networks (Classic Sports Network, which later became ESPN Classic, and College Sports TV) that went on to be sold for a $500 million. He...  Read More

7 Fun Games That Are Also Educational - Mike Smith Yahoo

By Mike Smith

We’re smack in the middle of summer, so any talk of education might seem downright unpatriotic. Still, the dark secret of many great games is that they can teach you stuff without your even realizing it. These winners are as enjoyable as they are edifying.

1. Minecraft

7 Fun Games That Are Also Educational

It’s a happy thing that one of the biggest breakout hits of the past few years is secretly teaching our children everything from geometry to resource management to teamwork. Admittedly, it may also be teaching them that diamonds can be turned into excellent swords and that riding a pig is socially acceptable behavior. Good, bad — either way, it’s hard to play Minecraft and not learn anything.

2. LittleBigPlanet 2

10 Foods to Eat so You Never Have to Diet - Redbook Healthy Living

By Redbook | Healthy Living



These powerhouse foods help keep unwanted pounds at bay, and it has nothing to do with counting calories and fat grams. By Amy Capetta, REDBOOK. 

Garlic 
This herb does more than just give meals extra flavor and scent--it can also help keep your tummy flat through its naturally occurring chemical allicin, says registered dietitian and Nutritious Life founder Keri Glassman. "Allicin kills off harmful bacteria in your digestive tract to keep your gut healthy and functioning, which means less bloat." Also, Korean researchers discovered that this member of the onion family may have an anti-obesity effect thanks to proteins being stimulated in the liver. Toss garlic in almost any poultry, pasta, or veggie dish, or add it to dressings and sauces.

Will Elon Musk's SpaceX Knock Boeing and Lockheed Out of Space? - The Motley Fool

By Rich Smith

In an interview with Auto Express magazine this week, Musk announced that Tesla is definitely going to have its latest electric car model, the Model 3, out for sale by 2017, and at a $35,000 price tag that should make it a viable competitor to BMW's 3-series among entry-level luxury-car buyers. But the even bigger news for Musk is this: SpaceX may very soon be going to work for the United States Air Force.

They like you, Elon! They really like you!
In a brief, to-the-point announcement on its website last week, SpaceX confirmed that the U.S. Air Force has...  Read More
