The average cost to attend college is about $80,000, or $20,000 per year.  It's a major expense that many families today cannot afford. But, there's a secret to getting college for free.  By doing exceptionally well on the SAT & Preliminary SAT (PSAT) exams, students can earn huge scholarships, including a full-ride. 

College Prep Genius is a preparatory curriculum that helps students to prepare and do well on the SAT and PSAT exams.  Founded 12 years ago by homeschooling mother, Jean Burk, the company has helped thousands of high school students, including Burk's own two children, get scholarships.  In preparing her son and daughter for the PSAT and SAT exams, Burk decoded the tests.

"We found that the College Board uses the same recurring patterns, testing the same basic principles," said Burk.  "It became clear that the test was based on logic and not on IQ.  It's not about how smart you are."  

The College Prep Genius curriculum teaches students the recurring patterns on the test, and the shortcuts and strategies to find the answers fast. Many students have raised their SAT scores by 600 points. The program consists of the College Prep Genius textbook, workbook, and DVD set, along with free downloadable homework that helps reinforce the strategies.

The three-minute Forbes Living TV segment explores the innovative SAT & PSAT preparatory curriculum developed by College Prep Genius, and highlights some the valuable strategies the program teaches students. 

"It's such an honor to be featured with Forbes Riley on the show," said Burk.  "Forbes is an incredible and inspiring personality and being a mother of twins and an advocate of education, she can appreciate proven strategies that help students further their education."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data.
