Tech education in Philly that pays, or you don't

...New York Code and Design Academy in January 2016 and hosts the Philly branch at 1601 Cherry St.

    Tech education in Philly that pays, or you don't
    With tuitions ever rising and student debt exploding to $1.45 trillion, there has been increased pressure on schools to demonstrate their value based on their success in placing graduates in good-paying jobs. A for-profit computer-coding boot camp in Philadelphia, the local branch of the New York Code and Design Academy, has taken the bull by the horns.

Today, November 19, is International Men’s Day. According to the WHO, average global male life expectancy is five years lower than for women, and the male suicide rate is three times that of women. This day aims to highlight health concerns that can affect men, and also aims to highlight certain social pressures that can negatively affect both men and boys. Check out InternationalMensDay.com for more information. This image is from a pop-up exhibit our Historical Medical Library hosted at last month’s Mischief at The Mütter event. This historical (not contemporary) pamphlet was distributed to boys with information about puberty, sexual health and more. How effectively have these issues been communicated to young men throughout history and today?

Believed to be at least eight millennia old, engravings in Arabia are possibly be the oldest depictions of dogs known to archaeologists. http://bit.ly/2jBmlrj

    These may be the world's first images of dogs-and they're wearing leashes
    Carved into a sandstone cliff on the edge of a bygone river in the Arabian Desert, a hunter draws his bow for the kill. He is accompanied by 13 dogs, each with its own coat markings; two animals have lines running from their necks to the man's waist.

Erika Emerson of Springfield, Mass was reunited with first responders from the Philadelphia Fire Department who saved her life when she went into full cardiac arrest at Mile 23 in the 2009 Philadelphia Marathon. After surgery for a congenital heart defect, it took years for Erika to get back in to running. Running in the 2017 AACR Philadelphia Marathon was a triumph for Erika. Her time today qualified her for the Boston Marathon. (from l to r. Lawrence Belitsky, Matt Flanagan, Erika Emerson, Robert Coll and Ray McCahery.) Good luck Erika. Keep Running and stay strong!
