Internet service would cost 80 a month to add where she lives

the vast majority of programming jobs require the ability to code, and no further domain specific knowledge
However, the theory of Computer Science and the history of it is still important to teach an aspiring programmer/computer scientist (still don't even know what that really means.) I think that the CS curriculum needs to teach more practical applications of things, including pure programming, but also necessary skills like using a version control system. Or how to download and install packages on different platform or using continuous integration servers/databases and other commonly used technologies. Learning the theory of SQL databases from 50 years ago is certainly not as helpful as learning how to set up and actually run a local database. More practical/hands on work, less theory and reading text books.

You skipped eating lunch for a month? And only ate 2 meals of 1000 calories, and lost weight? No wonder. In the article it mentioned muscle mass. I would be very skeptical if you told me you lost 22 pounds without sacrificing muscle mass. I personally think that how you look in the mirror is a much better indicator than your actual weight loss. But hey, if you lost 22 pounds and you think you look better, then great!
