Google and Coursera launch a new machine learning specialization | TechCrunch
It’s worth noting that these courses expect that you are already a somewhat competent programmer. While it has gotten much easier to start with machine learning thanks to new frameworks like TensorFlow, this is still an advanced skill. It’ll surely still be a while before we see a “get started with programming in Python by building a machine learning model” course.

Wood County students learn about different aspects of safety
MINERAL WELLS, W. Va. (WTAP) - The Wood County Farm Bureau hosted its annual safety day at the Wood County 4H camp Tuesday.

The two-day event welcomes seven schools throughout the county. Students learn about typical issues like fire and electrical safety, as well as other practical issues like internet, lawn motor and household chemical safety.

"It's great for us. The kids learn different aspects of safety," teacher Don Stansberry said. "They go through farm safety and lawn motor safety. You know, things the kids usually are around, nothing exotic but something they deal with everyday."

"Our goal is for the children to walk out of here with a better knowledge about safety," event coordinator Janet Wigal said, "something they can take with them throughout their life."

The event has been teaching students safety for over 20 years.
