..."On a point of land, I found the star thrower...I spoke once briefly. "I understand," I said. "Call me another thrower." Only then I allowed myself to think, He is not alone any longer. After us, there will be others...Perhaps far outward on the rim of space a genuine star was similarly seized and flung...For a moment, we cast on an infinite beach together beside an unknown hurler of suns... We had lost our way, I thought, but we had kept, some of us, the memory of the perfect circle of compassion from life to death and back to life again." ( The Star Thrower , )
Did you know that computing is the #1 source of wages in the .? There are more than 500,000 computing jobs open nationwide, but last year only 42,969 computer science students graduated into the workforce. To raise awareness of the possibilities and to build interest in computer science, students in the Sioux Falls School District are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11). The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit and over 100 others, is a global movement that believes the students of today are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success.
