“The end goal of this is to have people get the skill sets to get jobs,” said Jim Haye, neighborhood services coordinator for North Las Vegas.
Rick Damian, manager of housing and neighborhood services for the city, said the center will help people who may otherwise not be able to afford STEM training elsewhere. Training opportunities will be provided at no out-of-pocket cost to people, regardless of whether they live in North Las Vegas.

This is a very good opportunity for people that need skills to earn better wages. I highly encourage anyone that needs more skills to take advantage of this FREE training. This is better than just raising the minimum wage. Those jobs are really for young people to enter the workplace and get familiar with working. It's NOT meant to be a life long profession. You're supposed to have the motivation to get training (like this) to earn better wages, not let the Federal Government give you raises.

I was in the real internet development. Was the VP running the Electronics Division of one of the major players. Actually directed the development of a 256 PC. Even own a patent on protocols for loading files in a PC.

My team was very active in formulating the actual protocols for the internet. This is not the WWW which came later but the structure upon which WWW was based.

The big hand in much of the formatting and printing was Adobe and John Warnock. Our role was more in keeping the thing doable in reasonable printers.

One of the fun things was HTML. Amazing how many thought they had great understanding of documents and their formatting. Some of the meetings descended into chaos. But they were fun.

As I got ready to buy a new keyboard the present one returned to proper behavior. I can again type capital letters in the normal fashion.

Think however I am going to pick up a spare keyboard and a couple of mice.

Back in my working days one of my reports was believed to be the inventor of the mouse. And for practical purposes he may well have been. However an obscure patent in Germany did have the concept some years earlier. That did not become clear until years after the US mouse was widely accepted and some improvements gave patent rights better than the German one. The optical mouse for instance came on the US version..

This training will be most likely free for only those who are considered low income.

How advanced is this training? Is it just HS level sciences, and computer programming, or are they giving actually bachelors or masters in STEM?

Besides military, arent there other agencies that offer GI bill? I thought Post Office did. That is free education in whatever you choose.
