Posted in: Transport ministry to unify rules for baby strollers on buses, trains See in context

No parent enjoys riding a crowded train with a small baby with or without a stroller. But sometimes it's required to take the kid to the doctor's or day-care or to keep some other appointment. While the ministry considers some of our suggestions to designate special cars and enforce 'curfew' times let's be a little considerate to those exhausted moms struggling to hold things together.

"For people who are looking to get involved in software in a big way and don’t want to set aside four years for a computer-science degree, this nine-week program is a terrific alternative," Compton said.

A computer programmer needs to dedicate years of thought and practice to mature. These kind of boot camps may help one land a job and manage to do some kind of programming. But what matters is the depth and quality of the work they produce.
