Kodable Teaches Kids To Code Before They Learn To Read -
Teaching kids to program is a huge trend today, but it’ll be at least 15 years before Kodable’s five-year-old audience enters the workforce. Who’s to say that by the time these kids grow up, programming jobs will still hold the status they do now?
Any parent that teaches their kidnergartner skills in anticipation of the job market 15 years from now should be cracked over the head with a Sit N’ Spin. Interesting idea for an app though.

Parents: What’s your policy on calling out board game cheaters?
First Lady Michelle Obama visited the Hern family at the Boston Children’s Hospital Thursday, where 11-year-old Aaron Hern is recovering from a wound inflicted during the Boston Marathon explosions.
Tonight in Boston Common.
Nurse Kim Giroux was working in Medical Tent A at the finish line of the Boston Marathon at roughly 2:50 p.m.
She was tending to an Army Veteran who, along with a group of comrades, had just traversed the entire length of the marathon course in full gear, including fatigues, full backpack, combat boots and photos of brothers-in-arms who had never made it back home.
Moments later, back-to-back bomb blasts in Copley Square triggered instincts in both heroes and spurred them to the duties for which they’d been trained.
Giroux said the explosion caused the soldier to jump from his stretcher and she had a hard time getting him to stay put. “I said, ‘it’s not your job right now.’ He said, ‘you don’t understand, this is my job,’” she said. “I said, ‘I do understand. But you need to understand that it’s my job to take care of you.’”
When children began being brought in for treatment, Giroux turned her attention toward them, putting her skills as a pediatric nurse to good use.
When she turned back toward her soldier, he and his comrades were gone. They had left the tent and gone to work in the blast zone, helping with the efforts to clear the area and rescue the injured.
