DataWallet – Connect, Get Paid, Enjoy
https://www.datawallet.io/

Data is everywhere. With every little Like on Facebook, any picture we take, and any song we listen to on our smartphone or computer, we create data. We create roughly 5GB of data each day. Next year, we’ll create about 6.5GB. It sounds unbelievable, but 90% of all data that ever existed was created in the past 2 years. But even though we create this data on a daily basis, we don’t seem to own it. Firms called Data Brokers collect whatever data they can get their hands on behind our backs, put them into profiles, and sell them. We don’t know who is sourcing what part of our data, who buys it and for what purpose. Also we are not included in the value chain and paid for the data we create. More than $300 billion is spent each year on personal data. Data Brokers should not control what happens to our data. Data Brokers should not exclude us from seeing how our data is being used. And most importantly, Data Brokers should not pocket the money that companies pay for OUR data. This is why they built DataWallet. With their platform, they put you in charge of your data. They give you full control to decide who gets to buy your data, what data they get to buy, and most importantly, they make sure that 100% of the money paid for your data is paid out to no one else than you.

Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments
https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/world-leaders-1/

Updated weekly, the Central Intelligence Agency’s Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments online directory is a phenomenal window into the workings of governments around the world. Governments are listed within the directory in alphabetical order and are easy to browse. For example, if a reader was interested in the government of Mali, she would select M from the alphabetical list on the landing page, and then select Mali. From there, a list of Mali’s offices and ministries appears, including the President, Prime Minister, and the Ministers of Commerce & Industry, Culture, Handicrafts, & Tourism, National Reconciliation, and many others. In addition, PDF versions of past years are available. For readers curious about the domestic politics of diverse nations, this site can provide fascinating details.

Brain Facts: Explore the Brain and Mind
http://www.brainfacts.org/

Looking at the editorial board of Brain Facts, it is no surprise that the site ranks as one of the most accurate and up-to-date web outlets for information about the brain. Each of the eight editors holds a PhD; most of them have served at major universities or research hospitals. One of the benefits of Brain Facts is that readers can start anywhere. Articles are published almost daily and cover a wide range of subjects, from the effects of bullying on the brain to what hallucinations reveal about our minds. More structured readers may like to scout the site by sections, which include About Neuroscience, Brain Basics, Diseases & Disorders, and In Society.

Free Code Camp

Free Code Camp
http://www.freecodecamp.com/

Completing Free Code Camp is no easy task. In fact, students log over 1,600 coding hours by the time they complete all the classes, tasks, and projects that the site employs. The upswing, however, can be significant, as the site promises that committed users will: learn full stack JavaScript; build a portfolio of real apps that real people are using; and, hopefully, get a coding job. Users begin by taking 200 hours of online lessons. Next, they log 200 hours of JavaScript Algorithm practice, then work on 200 hours of front end web development, followed by 200 hours of full stack web development practice. Camp is then rounded out by 800 hours of real-world web development work for participating non-profits. Along the way, users connect with other “campers,” and learn applicable skills. An email address or social media account (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) is needed to create an account, but the site is well-organized, user-friendly, and, best of all, free. This will be added to Script Resources Subject Tracer™.
