    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.

    Incremental & Cyclic Weight Loss Programs: Build Metabolism-Dr. Carol Francis

    in Self Help

    Dieting and weight loss typically mean deprivation especially when food and social meals also satisfy emotional desires and entertainment purposes.  However, once an individual has attained a healthy metabolism, healthy muscle to fat ratio (BMI-Body Mass Index), quality sleeping, regular activities, and an easy as well as conscious food selection, then social eating, eating for entertainment or delight or even the periodic emotional eating does not typically cause weight gain problems.  So, lets configure weight loss programs which actually promote a good metabolism along side periodic emotional eating moments.  Dr. Carol Francis, author of over 10 books with "If You Can't Stop Eating, Maybe You're Hungry:  Reset Your Cravings" and "Evolving Women's Consciousness: Dialogues with 21st Century Women" are two books most related to weight loss and conscious living related to eating.    Dr. Carol Francis can be contacted at drcarolfrancis.com or at 310-543-1824 as a Clinical Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Child Therapist and Certified Medical Hypnotherapist, practicing in Los Angeles Beach Cities communities.
