The offer is part of Google's $50 million "Made With Code" initiative, which aims to help close the gender gap in tech. While Google is also offering the same vouchers to the women in attendance at its annual I/O developers conference this week, the search giant has released an online application that's available to women everywhere. Google says its available vouchers for women number in the "thousands."

A large number of people off-topic are still off-topic.

When the rest of the planet tells Americans that they are arrogant, this is exactly the sort of thing we're talking about.

Yet, we still manage to out innovate, out smart, out produce, out consume, out perform, and out work you guys.
Must be doing something right. Line up. Classes start at 8.

I don't think anyone does
the problem is they think evolution is backed by it either.
there are no stages observed in evolution, just giant leaps from creature to creature
the most we've seen is microevolution. longer tail. never extra vertebrate
don't question it. it's science.
people hate God and love circlejerking themselves into their designerless world where they can do what they want without him

People are always available for work in the past tense.
