Can You Teach Coding without a Computer?

According to Code.org, students like computer science and the arts the most of subjects in school. Additionally, 90 percent of parents want their children to study computer science, but just 40 percent of schools teach computer science. Furthermore, 71 percent of all new jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math are in computer science, but just 8 percent of STEM graduates are in computer science. It’s obvious that there is a huge disconnect between what students, parents, and the job market want and what schools are teaching, as far as computer science goes.

An integral part of computer science is coding, the lines of code that create software programs that run our world. Computers are networked to do everything to manage our thermostats to turning our lights at home on and off remotely. Apps provide entertainment, information, and skill building. Computers and coding run medical devices that save lives and make life easier for millions.

There is no denying the importance of teaching coding. It’s not just enough to learn how to type and use Microsoft Office anymore, as it was in the 1990s. Students today need to learn how to code because it is just as important to understanding the world around them as, say, understanding math, history, or science. FULL POST

Best Asian Country for Christian Vacation

South-East Asia is one of the most popular tourists spots in the world, thanks to its beautiful beaches and amazing nature. Combined with low prices and a laid back atmosphere, these countries are perfect for a relaxing vacation. While Thailand is by far the most visited and well-developed, it poses numerous challenges for Christian visitors, who wish to gain value from their holiday instead of just pure, mindless fun.

Don't get me wrong, Thailand is a great place with a rich culture and many things to see and do. However, an overly developed sex tourism scene and overall wild party atmosphere at most islands make it a less optimal family destination. Instead, we'd like to highlight the Philippines as a great alternative for your next tropical vacation.

Many people don't know it, but the Philippines is in fact 95% Christian – with Catholics being the overwhelming majority. Locals are extremely friendly, and they all speak English very well. Prices are even lower than Thailand's, and the scenery is just as impressive. On top of that, there are specific highlights which are unique to the Philippines, and make it a perfect destination for a Christian vacation.

For the first time in history the franchise will be heading to the Stanley Cup final, as the eliminated the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night. Many have the Predators pegged as the series favorite, but could this just be a pipe dream because of this big historic break? Who will their opponents be? Lots of exciting things are shaping up and taking place.

On the Eastern Conference side of the bracket you still have two amazing teams battling for a spot in the finals. The Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins are still going head to head with no quit showing in either team; however, the Penguins do have the momentum going into game 6, as they lead the series 3 to 2. Game 6 will take place Tuesday, May 23.

Whether you are a Predators fan or not, you have to wonder how the team is going to hold up with Ryan Johansen out on the injured list due to a thigh injury. Of course, the team has performed with perfection the last two games that he has been gone, but can they keep the momentum and grasp that beautiful cup in their hands? Veteran winger himself James Neal has already acknowledged that the task at hand would be much more difficult without Johansen, but he and the rest of the team are willing to do whatever it takes to overcome adversity.

Tottenham is the best position to develop more current Premier League players

Mauricio Pochettino demands that under him Tottenham is the “perfect club” for young English players. The Argentinean statements Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United is his inspiration and that the home-grown stars of tomorrow have the same talent as up-and-coming players in Argentina, Brazil, and Spain.

Spurs starlets have won the PFA's Young Player of the Award four times in the last five years, and their primary men Harry Kane and Dele Alli have both been nominated for it again this season.

Pochettino, who was insisted Alli should also be listed briefly for the main players.

Player prize with Kane, said: Tottenham are featuring a huge knowing and depend upon younger players. Tottenham is not the only club, but I think it is one of the best few clubs that considers and for young players it is an ideal club to develop their game.

It’s a big stress to win when you are a big team. But I think for me the best example in soccer in many years was Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson and what he designed with younger skills from the academy or from England, which comes up with primary of a team that won everything.

This pressure sees Premier League teams opt to buy ready-made foreign players than developing home-grown talent. The issue is to show you have faith and believe,” Pochettino stated.

What You Can Expect From the Best Criminal Defense Attorney

The courtroom is not a comfortable place to be. This is especially true if you find yourself as the defendant. It may be tempting to simply allow the court system to choose your defense attorney, but this is a bad move. No matter what you have to do, hire the best criminal defense attorney possible. Here are just a few of the things they will do for you.

Plea Bargain
When you find yourself in the throes of the court system, even if you did the crime you are being prosecuted for, your defense attorney will fight for you. People often do not understand how the court system works. Plea bargains are negotiated by the attorneys. A plea bargain is a set sentence that is agreed upon by both parties. As San Diego based criminal lawyer Vikas Bajaj explains, “It tends to be much less of a sentence because the attorneys and the judge try to avoid taking any case to trial. An experienced criminal defense attorney will negotiate your plea deal to avoid the high costs involved with going to court.” Get more info by visiting his website https://www.bajajdefense.com.

Sentencing Program
It is often thought that once a verdict is handed down, that is the end. This is not true. The sentencing still has to take place and that is a tricky thing to do without a seasoned attorney in your corner. Although it can be difficult to get a guilty verdict overturned, it is possible to have a sentencing program designed for you. Instead of having to spend your entire sentence in a high security lock down facility for years at a time, your defense attorney can talk to the judge to get part of your sentence transferred to a much lower security facility. Such facilities include drug rehab as well as some prison camps with minimal security and much more freedom than traditional institutions. FULL POST
