All this leads us to an undeniable fact: There is always a schema. No shit. In 5-10 years it's going to cost our industry an utter fortune to clean up the mess of "schemaless" data that we're creating right now. How the hell did we let a bunch of kids with no even superficial understanding of data modelling or data management convince us that schemas are harmful and that we needed to declare year zero?
I have grown increasingly frustrated with the world as people have become more and more convinced that "schema-less" is actually a feature to be proud of (or even exists). For over ten years I've worked with close to a dozen different databases in production and have not once seen "schemaless" ...

Hacked out a +JBoss, by Red Hat  +WildFly application server and JDK8 OpenShift cartridge based on the existing community one.  Should hold me over until +OpenShift updates the native environment to add Java 8 support.

The problem with FCPS is the large area it covers. With the rural areas (Great Falls, Vienna , Clifton and Oakton to name a few) the area isn't cleared. Also because of open bus stops and the wide income range , frost bite is an issue. Add that the buses dont have engine block warmers (? You can plug the block into an outlet so it can start on frigid days) it is hard.

After Atlanta this week you need to ask yourself which case you rather be in-- cancelled and not need it or not cancelled and stranded.

It is isn't easy and the more I read the more u appreciated the difficulty and accepted the decision.

As far as make up days? Students and teachers will be absent and it is a waste to have classes but I understand there is a law and we need to "honor" it.
