Which Science is the Most Basic?

Physics might be considered the most fundamental of all sciences, for all other sciences derive from basic principles of forces, motion, electromagnetism and... thermodynamics. And yet, physical laws are mathematical  models of the world. But mathematics itself is abstract, deriving from constructs of philosophy...

Runnable Wants To Become The YouTube Of Code

Runnable Wants To Become The YouTube Of Code | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by TechCrunch:
"For many developers, Googling code snippets is just part of their everyday routines. Those snippets, however, are spread all over the web. The co-founders behind Runnable, saw this in their own work at Amazon and hosting companies and decided to build what they call a “YouTube of Code” – a site that allows users to discover code snippets and edit and run the code right on their sites.

What’s happening then is that, for many developers, coding is slowly becoming more about gluing together existing parts than creating something entirely from scratch. Nobody, however, has made the process of discovering code snippets really easy.

On Runnable, the six-person team has aggregated code snippets in languages ranging from PHP to Node.js, Python, JavaScript, ASP.NET and Ruby on Rail (as well as some of their frameworks) from a range of reputable sources.
The idea is to make publishing code on Runnable as easy as writing a blog post on Medium.

Besides the languages themselves, the team is also focusing on APIs and on how to use products like MySQL, MongoDB, redis and similar frontend and backend services.

One of the coolest features of Runnable, by the way, is that you can edit the code and test it right on the site..."

International Day of the Girl Child - 11 October

International Day of the Girl Child - 11 October | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

"On December 19, 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare 11 October as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. For its second observance, this year’s Day will focus on “Innovating for Girls’ Education”.

 

The fulfilment of girls’ right to education is first and foremost an obligation and moral imperative. There is also overwhelming evidence that girls’ education, especially at the secondary level, is a powerful transformative force for societies and girls themselves: it is the one consistent positive determinant of practically every desired development outcome, from reductions in mortality and fertility, to poverty reduction and equitable growth, to social norm change and democratization."

The MaKey Makey is a bare bones circuit board that connects to your computer via USB. There are7 terminals for attaching electrical wires to it.

To take advantage of growth opportunities, various players have set up systems to help facilitate international e-book sales.
