This is not true.
Syntax highlighting and keeping track of start end end parenthesis is nice and all, but if you need it that is a good sign that your code isn't readable.
But I program in Lisp, you insensitive clod!
$30 or so? I can easily drive to SF from LA on ¾ of a tank
In what car? Even in a Prius you just barely make it on a full tank.
The current Amtrak is highly comparable to what is being built.
No it is not. Amtrak out here breaks down frequently, so is unpredictable on long trips. They put ypu on a bus when the train breaks down, which sucks. L.A. to San Diego on Amtrak is OK, but that's about it.
Hardest and thankless job in the U. S. However, you get health care for your entire family, and summers off. Also, if you don't live in a "red" State, likely the teachers are unionized so your salary might be OK, and you might have a pension.
Now CS students graduating from TJ will be slightly less prepared than they would have been.
Up until this last sentence, all of your statements sound reasonable, even though I disagree with them. I think this last statement you made is just wrong.
A picture of a naked female is not "anti-female" either. Yet it is inappropriate in a high school computer imaging class.
You guys are missing the context. It is already extremely difficult for public school teachers to get students interested in math and science. The slightest distraction in class can ruin a lesson, and repeated distractions can ruin morale and interest of students for an entire semester. A teacher would be crazy to voluntarily introduce anything with such an obvious connection to pornography, whether explicitly known or unknown. You have to appreciate the amount or effort it takes to get students interested and involved, especially in K-12 where the goal is to educate ALL students.
Did I say teenage girls are not fans of porn at all? You're responding to not what I said, but what you wished I said.
Which part of the world do you live in where big = biggest?
When I do internet searches in the classroom I use safe search, or the equivalent. (Remember Yahooligans?) But I try never to do live searches in front of students. For example, a simple search for "LaTeX" (typesetting) yields pornography on some search engines. Any informed K-12 teacher knows the existence of typo-squatters and takes steps to avoid them. All those half-naked women in the margins of your browser you learned to ignore years ago are nevertheless still there. Teachers must be extra careful.
Are people too easily offended by this? Absolutely. After all, the top half of the image is no more risqué than many covers on modern fashion magazine.
If I were a K-12 teacher, I wouldn't even use a model from a magazine at the grocery store checkout. Doing so would suggest that I endorse the look of the model, as an authority figure, which I don't. The model's look is is usually the latest lame culture fad. This affects young girls more than you know, so why even bring that shit to the classroom when there are zillions of easily available appropriate alternatives.
Any young man who grew up in the age of PornHub will call this pretty tame. But teenage girls are not the biggest fans of pornography sites, so they may not be as desensitized. Many schools ban bare-shoulder outfits, anyway.
Its a woman face and she's very proud of her picture.
I'm sure Anthony Weiner is proud of his dick pics, so what? Teachers still have to decide the appropriateness of material presented to their students.
It is not a standard head shot. It is a sexualized model. If a woman is looking at you in a sexually suggestive way, you don't have to see her naked body to realize she is looking at you in a suggestive way. Twenty years of cheap digital cameras and we still have this shit. Damn.
