1. AI4ALL Open Learning

Educators and caregivers of high school students may be interested in
AI4ALL Open Learning, a free program designed to connect students "with [a]
relevant and approachable AI education." Before registering for the
program, readers may want to watch the brief introductory video on the Open
Learning page. As this video notes, AI4ALL was founded on the belief that
its participants "can shape the future of AI for the better." And, the
program is created and led by community facilitators with a commitment to
inclusion. The curriculum contains more than 30 hours of materials and
activities, as well as facilitator guides. Plus, it is designed for
students with varied interests, demonstrating that AI touches many careers,
from engineering to art. For more information on the program, check out the
"Open Learning Platform Tips" guide found on the FAQ page (linked at the
bottom of the site). To access the learning modules (including "AI &
Drawing," "AI & COVID-19," and "AI & The Environment"), readers will need
to register for a free account. [EMB]

2. Art Times

Published monthly, <i>Art Times</i> brands itself as "Africa's Leading
Visual Arts Publication." At the link above, readers will find featured
stories, events, and exhibits from throughout Johannesburg. To view the
magazine in its entirety, scroll to the bottom of the page; there readers
can subscribe by email or click the "View All Our Magazines Online!"
thumbnail (which brings visitors to an external viewing site). On this site
readers will find the latest issue, as well as archived installments dating
back to 2009. Issues highlight exhibits from The Melrose Gallery in
Johannesburg and upcoming art auctions and events. Additionally, like a
traditional publication, they contain a plethora of images and essays. For
example, the August 2020 issue includes a piece about how artists are
coping with COVID-19 changes, and the July 2020 issue has an article on
"art [and] algorithms" (discussing the influence of "net art," a genre of
online work). [EMB]

3. Soft Skills Engineering Podcast

What makes a great engineer? <i>Soft Skills Engineering</i>, a weekly
podcast by and for software developers, demonstrates that much of the
success stems from "the non-technical stuff." Hosts Jamison Dance (a
product engineer) and John Smith (a software developer) launched the show
"to help software developers level up their engineering skills beyond
writing code." With ample bits of wit and wisdom, the duo tackles topics
like "technical leadership" and "code review etiquette," among many more.
The more than 200 episodes are available on Apple and Google Podcasts, as
well as the link above. Wherever listeners tune in, they may want to read
each episode's description, which includes the listener questions answered
within. Those interested in submitting their own questions for Dave and
Jamison to answer on an upcoming show can do so via the Ask a Question tab.
<i>Soft Skills Engineering</i> is supported by various engineering
companies, including: Vettery, the O'Reilly Velocity Conference,
Pluralsight, Algolia, and DevMountain. [EMB]

4. Mapping Contemporary Challenges to Island Hul'qumi'num Peoples'
Territories

History teachers may be interested in this resource, Mapping Contemporary
Challenges to Island Hul'qumi'num Peoples' Territories, which "presents a
series of interactive maps illustrating the ongoing challenges to the
exercise of land, resource and governance rights from development and
conservation efforts within Hul'qumi'num peoples' territory." The site
combines maps and historical text to highlight the erasure of Indigenous
rights, especially regarding land use. Content is organized into several
different sections, allowing it to be easily divided into lesson plans.
Additionally, the site's Home page links to the "Hul'qumi'num Treaty
Group's Strategic Land Use Plan (2005)," an eight-section land use plan
that "describe[s] the Hul'qumi'num people's vision for how land and
intertidal (beach) resources should be used, managed and protected to
sustain them indefinitely and provide benefits for Hul'qumi'num people."
Dr. Brian Thom from the University of Victoria (UVic) led the project, with
support from the INSTEAD and CICADA projects, and the UVic Ethnographic
Mapping Lab. [EMB]

5. Martha Graham Dance Company YouTube Channel

Those looking for something to augment their TV viewing are in luck. The
<i>Martha Graham Dance Company</i> YouTube Channel provides videos of recent performances from 2020, archival selections dating back to the
1930s, interviews with dancers and choreographers, and compilations that
were previously aired on television. Welcoming viewers to the channel is a
short video with artistic director Janet Eilber, featuring snippets of
several stunning performances. The rest of the channel's videos range in
length from brief clips to longer pieces. For example, viewers will find a
30-minute recording of <i>Appalachian Spring</i> from the 1940s, with
choreography and costumes by Martha Graham and music by Aaron Copland.
Readers will also find an hour-long interview between Lloyd Knight, a
dancer who joined the Company in 2005, and Lorenzo Pagano, who joined in
2012. Readers looking to stay active may enjoy the "Graham On Demand"
fundamental videos, where viewers can learn dance techniques from the
professionals. [DS]

opportunities). Prospective students may want to begin with the Plan Your

some of the tools are universal. For example, the Prepare for College
section (under Plan For Success) features tips for adult students returning
to the classroom after life experience. Under the Find a Job tab, readers
may want to check out the various guides to creating resumes, writing cover
letters, and interviewing. The site even features a specific section on
"COVID-19 Job Search Resources," with a list of virtual job fairs and
current openings. CAREERwise is supported by Minnesota State's Workforce
Development Department. [EMB]

9. Switch, Pivot, or Quit Podcast

Looking for advice on personal and professional life? The <i>Switch, Pivot,
or Quit</i> podcast may be of interest of interest. Hosted by Ahyiana

With more  250 episodes, as of this write-up, the show covers a variety of

Tech Tools

11. jc

jc is a wrapper that converts the output of many standard command-line
tools and a number of common file types to JSON for easier manipulation in
scripts or processing with JSON-literate tools such as jq. In the Examples
section (found by clicking the "EXAMPLES.md" link), users can find numerous
sample invocations covering a myriad of uses including: finding large files
in a directory, summarizing installed Python packages, processing XML
files, and many more. The Parsers section of the jc site lists the commands
and formats that are understood out of the box. Users can also extend jc
with their own custom parsers written in Python. Readers can install jc
using either Python's pip package manager or with their operating system's
package manager. Installation instructions are provided in the Installation
section of the JC site. [CRH]

12. jid

The JSON Incremental Digger (jid) is an interactive tool to inspect and
filter JSON data using a jq-like query language. Users start jid by
pointing it at a JSON file. By default, with no query entered, jid simply
pretty-prints and colorizes the data it was given. Users can then type in a
query. As they type, the data will be filtered down to show the matching
portions. To speed up the query building process, jid provides the user
with tab completions and autosuggestion of query terms. The Usage section
of the jid README provides a few brief illustrations of how the tool can be
used. In the Releases section of jid's site, users can locate binaries for
Windows, macOS, Linux, and several flavors of BSD. Most distributions and
BSDs also provide a version of jid from within their official package
repositories. [CRH]
