Google publishes its documentation style guide for developers

 Documentation is often an afterthought — especially for open-source projects. That can make it harder for newcomers to join a project, for example, and sometimes badly written documentation is worse than having no documentation at all. To help developers write better documentation, Google this week opened up its own developer-documentation style guide. Read More

Cryptocurrencies have already recovered from last weekend’s crash

 When cryptocurrency markets crashed 20% a few days ago, I wrote “the next day or so will tell us if this was a temporary bump in the road or the start of the next major correction.”
Well here we are, a day or so later. And the temporary crash seems to have just been a bump in the road. The entire market cap of cryptocurrencies is up 16% from a low of $135B yesterday to $162B… Read More

Don’t rely on Face Unlock to keep your phone secure

 With Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 arriving in stores soon, here’s an important reminder: Face Unlock isn’t anywhere near as good at securing your phone as a fingerprint.

#OUREntrepidNetwork – Introducing The Nyle DiMarco Foundation and Their Mission to Improve the Lives of Deaf Persons

www.nyledimarcofoundation.com

Working to Ensure Deaf Children Receive the Same Opportunities as Hearing Children

In their own words (www.NyleDiMarcoFoundation.com):

Mission

The Nyle DiMarco Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists as a national philanthropic resource for all organizations, institutions and individuals working to improve the lives of every Deaf person in the world.

Current Priority Area: Deaf Children and their Families

The Foundation aims to improve access to accurate, research-based information about early language acquisition–specifically, the bilingual education approach. Through the early intervention process, the child’s language and literacy development should be the focal point.

Nyle and the Foundation are guided by the principle that every child deserves love and language.

Because the reality is that Deaf children can grow to be anything they want: firefighter or police officer, defense attorney or brain surgeon, elementary teacher or college professor, software developer or the creator of the next major social media outlet–or even an internationally recognized supermodel, actor, and dancing phenom. The key to unlocking a Deaf child’s future is acquiring language at an early age.

Nyle’s story provides validation: he was born into a multigenerational Deaf family and was taught American Sign Language and English from birth.

One of the Foundation’s objectives is to improve access to resources and information for parents of Deaf children and their families, so that when parents have these questions, they know where they can find answers.

Through partnerships with national organizations, such as Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K), the Foundation promotes awareness on issues surrounding the importance of early language and literacy in Deaf children. The Foundation’s partnerships emphasize culturally-based, community-engaged, and innovative approaches in providing support and guidance to Deaf children and their families.
