Why were 600,000 high-paying tech jobs unfilled in 2015 in the United States alone, or is the better question: Is technology developing faster than humans can learn to handle it?According to the White House, by 2018, 51 percent of STEM jobs will be in computer science-related fields. However, the number of tech employees has not increased along with the number of jobs available. Why? The answer is simple: lack of relevant education. The White House maintains that just one quarter of K-12 schools offer high-quality computer science with programming and coding. In addition, in 2016, the PEW Research Center reported that only 17% of adults believed they were “digitally ready.”When we look at diversity, things only get worse. In 2015, 22 percent of students taking the AP Computer Science exam were girls while 13 percent were African-American or Latino. These statistics are not U.S. specific; in 2015, Australia reported that only 28 percent of ICT jobs were held by women.Coding has always been regarded as a mysterious field, something Derek Lo, co-founder of the new application “Py”, wants to change. Launched in 2016, the application offers interactive courses on everything from Python to iOS development. The “unique value proposition,” as Lo puts it, has been a revolutionary success. The fun-oriented application has so far resulted in over 100,000 downloads on both iTunes and Google Play.Most parents frown when kids use their phones at the dinner table, but what if the kids were learning to code over Sunday roast? “Ok, so maybe not the Sunday roast, but seriously, could a more accessible and fun coding application make all the difference?”The Global Search for Education is excited to welcome one of Py’s founders, Derek Lo, to discuss how Py’s revolutionary approach is literally making coding cool.

Reports surfaced today claiming SoundCloud had “drastically reduced” the overall audio quality of songs posted to its platform from 128kbps (MP3) to 64kbps (Opus). While the bitrate was reportedly decreased, the newly utilized Opus codec has been touted by Opus developers as superior to MP3s at lower bitrates. When contacted for comment, a representative for SoundCloud called claims of decreased quality “inaccurate.” “SoundCloud has not altered its approach to audio quality,” they continued. “We have been using the Opus codec (among others) since 2016, and we regularly test different combinations of encoding and streaming to offer listeners a quality experience on any device.”

A verified G.O.O.D. Music SoundCloud account has recently surfaced, fueling fan anticipation about the next move for Kanye West’s collective. While Travis Scott, Big Sean and Cyhi the Prynce all dropped new projects in 2017, things have been quiet as far as a collective G.O.O.D Music effort is concerned.Much like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram verification, SoundCloud appears to honor live registered trademarks such as the G.O.O.D. Music moniker. At worst, if an imposter is using the G.O.O.D. Music imprint for a fake profile, SoundCloud has pretty clear steps for having it removed.
