    IT Life: An Alternative to University IT Programs

    in Technology

    Ashu Desai, our latest guest on IT Life Radio thinks college computer science programs are failing their students. He's founded a new kind of school to make the next generation of software developers that he thinks is more cost effective, faster, and most importantly, makes better developers than traditional IT programs from four year universities.


    Ashu thinks that developers aren't getting enough hands on experience or managing enough projects in college, and that the teachers they get are more interested in research than teaching. Desai knows first-hand. He dropped out of a college program himself when he realized he had learned far more from designing his own app than he was learning in school. After a few successful years as an IT pro, he decided to fix the problems he has seen. He founded Make School.


    According to Desai, Make School is designed to work more like a startup than a school. The "campus" looks like any office of a San Francisco startup. And the students spend part of their day in lectures and part of the day working on projects of their own. In other words, they get the startup experience. They've only had one class so far, but most of those folks are working and some are making well above the average salary for developers coming out of college and they're doing it in less time.


    The kicker? There is no tuition. Make School has a different business plan. Instead of taking money from you before you've made any they defer the tuition and then take a percentage of your salary in your first years after they get you a job. No job? No tuition.


    Ashu Desai is one of the founders of Make School, a university replacement for computer science. He attended UCLA to study computer science before dropping out to join Y Combinator and found Make School in hopes of improving computer science education.

    Shattered Lives: Children and Grieving

    in School

    When children are victims of a disaster, a school shooting, or perhaps the loss of a classmate or someone close to them, we, as parents, teachers, or mental health professionals need to know how best to assist their grieving process.


    As the media reports on school shootings, deaths of children, and tragedy beyond comprehension, one comforting thought is there are trained professionals ready to step in during and after the crisis to help children deal with the loss.   


    Returning Shattered Lives Radio guest, Dr. David Schonfeld is tops in the field of child bereavement and now heads the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement (NCSCB) which "aims to help prepare professionals working in schools, health care settings, and other community sites to be better prepared to meet children’s needs during and after crisis and loss."

    Are Children Over Medicated? Gayani DeSilva M.D.

    in Women

    he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.


    Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents

    Cultivating Spirituality in Children

    in Lifestyle

    There is so much to talk about when it comes to spirituality. Which ofcourse means that we reached out to expert Dr. Rosie Kuhn for a third time!  Luckily for all of us, she agreed to continue our conversation which we started with her multiple shows ago. This time she will help us address questions like:


    What is spirituality? 


    Why is this an important topic for parents, grandparents, and for all of us?


    What are some ways to clarify values for ourselves and our children?


    How can we be in the world in such a way that children will follow our lead, and cultivate within themselves spiritual values and competencies?

    Ghosts of Children

    in Paranormal

    It has always amazed me how ghosts of children can exist. It seems as though they would be exempt from the prison of being earthbound after death, but apparently they're not. We will explore this very troubling reality on the next show.
