Manual To Success

I was reading my Bloglines subscription and I've found pretty much interesting the history written by Nancy Mitchell about the history of an student in Denver which might be a good example of perseverance that many of us lack up. For those ouside the US.these week many Senior just graduated from High School and were having fun this Friday night.

No is the case for Julissa Torrez. This is a poem she wrote to honor her hard working mom:

Parents don't go to games
go home being ashamed
food stamps to Medicaid
parents putting their kids in fame
we are all the same
poor, slang, hustlas
we are all each others customers.


Does she try to answer all these questions?

Graduates: Innovation and Competitiveness

Ricardo Perez presents an excerpt of the Backbone of American Compettiveness and Innovation. Here the agenda to strengthen U.S competitiveness and innovation through a renewed commitment to graduate education:

.Develop a highly skilled workforce by fostering collaboration among leaders in higher education, business and government.

.Expand participation of underrepresented groups in all fields, especially those essential to America’s competitiveness and national security.

.Create a vision for all US students that portrays careers in the STEM fields as engaging, compelling, transparent and remunerative.

.Produce highly educated workforce with advanced skills and the flexibility to compete in an interdiciplinary environment at the frontier of knowledge creation.

.Attract and retain the best and brightest students from around the world, and

.Enhance the quality of graduate education through ongoing evaluation and research.

All around what is called STEM= Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. "With a high percentage of doctorates in these fields being from outside the US, and the increasing problems to get the necesary permissions to go there or stay there, plus the fact that the country wants to focus on those areas and get more interest from young students in the research fields, marks clearly the transition to, what everybody has been preaching for years, to a knowledge-based economy. This new big reality will take most countries by surprise if they are not ready to have a lot of young people ready to innovate and take risks."

Kids Not Only Have to Be Good When They're in the Cyberspace

This is the conclusion Sean FitzGerald arrived after reading Thomas Friedman's article where he says that all kids with camera cell phone are paparazzos and everyone with a blog is a journalist(citizenjournalist), so he concludes, all these people becomes public figure and have to be good.

FitzGerald, moves forward and declares that just because a kid or teen becomes a public figure doesn't have to stop having fun, they just need to learn to be careful with the info they hang online. Who's going to teach them? Well, in the very first place parents and after the school. Do not expect nothing from 'society' or even friends of those kids! Can be distracted very easily from journalism to sex, and that's another business.

At this point we can't even let our kids just research online without direction. Google still have a way to go in this matter and the schoolers have to learn how to search efficiently. Scoble has a point about Ruby and Rails and notices that even Yahoo and Microsoft offered better results in this field!
