BREAKING NEWS: more shark attacks during shark week because they all think we’re saying ‘shark weak’ and it upsets them
What does it take to get a kid to stay in school and graduate? Sometimes motivation is highly external: New York City has experimented with paying students when they get good grades. Sometimes it’s highly internal: Angela Duckworth’s research focuses on how personality traits like “grit” and perseverance help students persist through hardships at school. Both of these extremes are elusive and hard to implement: Not every city has a wealthy mayor who wants to help bankroll a student-payment system. Not every child has “grit”—and researchers don’t really know how to teach it.
A new study from the University of Kansas suggests that there’s a simpler, more universal way to motivate students: Give them a reason to come to school—even if that reason has nothing to do with academics.

Cloudera Engineering (@ClouderaEng) shipped a mountain of new product (production-grade software, not just technical previews): Cloudera Impala, Cloudera Search, Cloudera Navigator, Cloudera Development Kit (now Kite SDK), new Apache Accumulo packages for CDH, and several iterative releases of CDH and Cloudera Manager. (And, the Cloudera Enterprise 5 Beta release was made available to the world.). Furthermore, as always, a ton of bug fixes and new features went upstream, with the features notably but not exclusively HiveServer2 and Apache Sentry (incubating).
How many things can you read in this paragraph?
- a not that subtle stab at Hortonwork’s series of technical previews.
- more and more projects brought under the CDH umbrella. Does more ever become too much? (I cannot explain why, but my first thought was “this feels so Oracle-style”)
- Cloudera’s current big bet is Impala. SQL and low latency querying. A big win for the project, but not necessarily a direct financial win for Cloudera, was its addition as a supported service on Amazon Elastic MapReduce.

I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
This is me, my name is Kelli and I’m 17-years-old, battling cancer for the third time. I have less than a year to live and the only thing I want to do more than anything before I die is meet Ellen. She’s my sunshine. She’s the reason I wake up everyday and I watch her show every morning. She just radiates so much joy and happiness and she gives me hope. It’s really my dream to be able to meet her. Unfortunately, due to a long waiting list, the Wish Foundation told me I probably wouldn’t be able to meet her within my short timeline. But I see miracles happen all the time.. therefore I won’t give up on my dream. I thought that maybe if this gets enough attention, someone from the Ellen Show would come across it, or maybe even Ellen herself will know of me and my wish to meet her. Please, help me make my wish come true.
