"Today, the world and our classrooms are more diverse than ever. It is important for all children to feel valued and included every day," said Mary Muhs, Early Childhood Education (ECE) department chair at Rasmussen College.

The College will be hosting a webinar, "Anti-bias Education-Celebrating ALL Families in Our Care" on April 27 from 7:00–9:00 p.m. CDT. The webinar will focus on getting ECE professionals and teachers out of their comfort zones in order to make all children feel welcomed, valued and important each day. The webinar will explore the principle of anti-bias education and how ECE professionals can best work to promote an inclusive environment that is reflective of our world.

"The goal of anti-bias education is to help children see who they are in this wide world, build self-confidence, validate their experiences and make their differences a positive," said Muhs. "Differences are what make you special and unique; they are not something that needs to be feared. Oftentimes it is fear of the unknown that creates conflicts. It is important children recognize unfairness and know how to stand up to it. This is learned with practice and it is important to start early with developmentally appropriate exercises and lessons." 

To help the community celebrate WOYC and learn more about diversity education, Rasmussen College is hosting a series of events and activities across its 22 Midwest and Florida campuses. Activities include art projects, book readings with the College's School of Education faculty and students and campus penny wars.

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...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
