I'm a big believer in that cultivating critical thinking skills is essential for our next generation to thrive. For me, critical thinking is the ability to abstract patterns from complex problems/ideas. With so many "learn how to code" movements out there, I'm worried that learning how to code is not enough. Coding is a language. If you learn a language without studying what you can do with it -- the culture, the philosophy -- you won’t benefit from all of its depths. The act of thinking through all of the data and figuring out which data is important cements your critical thinking skills.@Laurie Vazquez​  has captured some of my thoughts here, I'd love to know what you think

Last year I did a biographical episode for Mexican TV as part of a series highlighting the accomplishments of a diverse group of Mexicans. It now has English subtitles so ‪#‎DonaldTrump‬ can understand it

OK friends, spreading some news I just got: NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration and S.E.T.I. have called for a press conference at 12PM EST tomorrow Thursday, July 23rd. The Kepler mission has discovered an earth-like world called Kepler 452b. At a distance of 1,400 light-years away, Kepler 452b accompanies a star whose characteristics are very similar to the Sun: 4% more massive and 10% brighter. Kepler 452b orbits its star at the same distance as the Earth orbits the Sun. They are talking extraordinary potential atmosphere, water etc.. *None of these details have been released and I can't confirm yet. But you can watch tomorrow here: http://www.nasa.gov/news/media/newsaudio/index.html (thanks Robin Seemangal)
