t’s all Wuhan
A few early cases of a worrying respiratory disease are identified. Government leaders say the risk is low and downplay the threat of spread.
More cases appear, but bottlenecks in testing mean it’s hard to get an exact idea of how many people are actually infected. As diagnostic capacity rises, the government acknowledges the threat of the disease and puts in place never-before-contemplated restrictions on business and movement.
Hospitals begin to fill up, health-care workers get infected, and the death toll starts to rise.
It’s hard to tell the difference between the outbreak in China and the one in the U.S., isn’t it?

There are differences between the coronavirus epidemics in the two countries, but the similarities are depressingly similar.
In the latest unfortunate parallel, U.S. doctors who can’t get access to tests to diagnose Covid-19 patients are turning to CT scans, using the infection’s telltale damage to the lungs to confirm new cases. The same was done in China, where underequipped health workers had to use other criteria to try and track the disease.
If you want to know how the outbreaks in the U.S. end, look to China. Only now, three months later, is Wuhan beginning to slowly open back up.
Epidemics follow patterns. Right now, the world is playing out the situation in Wuhan, over and over. The question is whether we get any better at it with every new iteration. —Drew Armstrong
arkets designing win-win trades not to indulge in neverending wars - fortunately it didnt take long for americans to repel the brits and it was convenient in the late 18th century to continue sharing the same language - as keynes said there is nothing constitutionally more scary than an academic economist hired by an ideologue determined to rule the world. tech's 21st twist to this morality tale is that previously civilisation declined and fell separately now we are all linked in to mother earth's same destiny -help us communalise the language of 2020s tech AI 5G 3d 5 sense reality cyber biotech etc …

there are more than 200 million people with hearing loss problems. Between deaf people and those who can hear there is a huge communication barrier, as they communicate with each other in different languages even though they live in the same country. In 2008, as a university student, Tenório came up with an idea for a tool to overcome that barrier and improve communication between those who can hear and those who cannot. But at the time he lacked resources and technology to bring the idea to fruition. So it was set aside for a few years.
In 2012, Tenório, Carlos Wanderlan Thadeu and Thadeu Luz teamed up to develop the idea with a platform for automatic translation of sign language. It works with Hugo, a friendly 3D interpreter that made it possible for the translations to be accessible with a variety of tools.
In 2013, the app for smartphones and tablets, which automatically converts sign language, was finally launched. The app lets people write, speak and even take photographs (www.handtalk.me/app). In a matter of months the app was a huge success, and so far more than 20 million translations have been done. Besides that app, Hand Talk (www.handtalk.me) features a tool for accessing any web site in sign language ( www.handtalk.me/sites ). Special projects are also designed to take this new accessibility to companies (www.handtalk.me/plus).
The solutions have helped more than 10 million people in just 12 months and in Brazil alone.
Hand Talk was chosen as the most innovative project in Brazil at Rio Info in 2012. It has received similar honors on a larger scale: for all of Latin America in 2014 by the company Qualcomm Ventures, and as the best social app in the world, by the United Nations, at WSA-Mobile in 2013 in Abu Dhabi.…

chool program was founded in 1994 and is part of the Clark County School District. The first year included only 9th and 10th grade, adding a grade each year. The first graduating class was 1997, and the first graduating class with all four years of attendance was 1998. As of 2011, the school had an enrollment of 1,059 students and 60 classroom teachers on a FTE basis, for a student-teacher ratio of 18:1. The magnet school focuses on computer and technology related study fields.
As of 2017, A-TECH is ranked #1 in the state of Nevada and #287 nationally by US News and World Report.

3Awards and recognition
5Notable faculty members
Unlike traditional high schools, A-TECH has no team sports. Students wishing to play team sports participate at their zoned high school. Games of flag football and basketball had been held between A-TECH and Las Vegas Academy (another local magnet school with no sports teams) since the school's opening, though have been discontinued since 2008. Games of flag football and soccer are held annually between A-TECH and Northwest Career and Technical Academy, a magnet school that was opened in 2008.
The gymnasium building began construction during the 1998-1999 school year, and opened in 2000.
Efforts to increase the student population at the school began in the early 2000s. Construction of the school's east wing (including additional classrooms, offices, and a lecture hall) and expansion of the existing cafeteria began in 2002, and were completed in time for the start of the 2003-2004 school year. The expansion increased enrollment from approximately 750 students to just over 1000.
Fields of study
A-TECH currently provides seven areas of study:
Architectural Design: Students in Architectural Design are introduced to the principles of architectural drawing, design, and introductory civil engineering concepts using two and three-dimensional drawing techniques, rendering, and animation to prepare for jobs in architecture and engineering. Areas of concentration include building codes, construction methods and materials, climate, energy efficiency, sustainability, green building concepts, presentation skills and portfolio development. Students test their skills through project based learning activities and participation in local and national design contests. Upon successful completion of this program, students will have acquired entry-level skills for employment in this field.
High School of Business: Students are prepared with the principles and operations of business and management found in today’s technologically advanced economy. The curriculum prepares students for customer relationships and multiple forms of management associated with business. Economics, finance, operations, and professional development are emphasized throughout the program. The appropriate use of technology and industry-related equipment is an integral part of the program.
Computer Science: In Computer Science, students focus on programming in C++ and Java. The programing experience is enhanced by the use of IDEs such as CodeBlocks, BlueJ, and InteliJ. It also incorporates the 21st Century Curriculum and prepares students to move forward in their chosen field whether it is software development, game development, app development, or any other field. Students are further prepared through their development of workplace readiness skills and employability skills for career readiness. Students have opportunities to participate in internships, hackathons, student led workshops, and the Hour of Code.
Engineering: Engineering students engage in open-ended problem solving, learn and apply the engineering design process, and use the same technology and software as are used in the industry. Students are immersed in design as they investigate topics such as 3D modeling, machine design and control, forces, structures, basic electronics and circuit design, manufacturing, and teamwork, beginning post-secondary education, or careers.
Graphic Design: Students focus on the professional areas of graphic design, computer art, and video. They develop skills in the areas of drawing, digital and visual communications, design critiquing, portfolio development, and presentations. Projects, design competitions, and internships allow students to apply their skills at professional levels.
Information Technologies: In Networking Technology, students develop the skills necessary to support microcomputers with various platforms and to administer network systems. Students are taught the fundamentals of Local Area Network design and the responsibilities of system administrators. Students prepare for the Cisco CCNA, and A+ Certification.
Legal Studies: Students in this program focus on civil and criminal law with practical training in the skills necessary for pursuing a law related occupation. Students explore themes in both civil and criminal law reflecting American social, moral, political, and economic values. The appropriate use of technology and industry standard equipment is an integral part of this program.
