The phrase “There’s an app for that!” touches many facets of modern life, to include transportation, finance, communications and entertainment. Apps, or computer applications, typically flow from the fertile minds of young, white male coders. Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ software-writing prowess laid the foundation for a $508-billion corporation and helped revolutionize personal computing for billions of worldwide consumers.

Intent on leading more Black and Latino high school boys to the coding dance floor, New York City activist Christina Lewis Halpern created All Star Code . “We all want and need a seat at the table, and then we want to run the table and then we want to have our own table. Coding is the ticket to that,” says Halpern, whose father, Reginald F. Lewis , was a Wall Street attorney who acquired and deftly operated a billion-dollar international food business, TLC Beatrice International, before succumbing to brain cancer in 1993. Fortune magazine had listed Lewis as one of the country’s 400 wealthiest individuals.

Still, Halpern is keenly aware that “the playing field isn’t level. America was built on a legal structure where African-Americans were excluded from money, power and fame. But we’ve made progress!”

"Success in life is directly proportional to the number of awkward conversations you're willing to have."  I don't know who that quote comes from, but I heard it not long ago and it really stuck with me because it's 100% true. To be successful in just about anything, you have to …

“We’re overdue for a stock market collapse.” “This could be the big one.” This is what you hear when you turn on the news or read magazines and newspapers. After the great bull market run from 2009 to today, many are predicting the stock market is going to drop. Depending on who …

 So much goes into planning a wedding that once it finally happens you breathe a big sigh of relief and look forward to getting on with a "normal" life. At least that's how I felt. My wedding finally came and went a little over a week ago. Everything went smoothly and a great …

(one billion, short scale ; one thousand million or milliard, yard, [1] long scale) is the natural number following 999,999,999 and preceding 1,000,000,001. One billion can also be written as b or bn . [2] [3]

In scientific notation , it is written as 1 × 10 9 . The metric prefix giga indicates 1,000,000,000 times the base unit.

Previously in British English (but not in American English ), the word "billion" referred exclusively to a million millions (1,000,000,000,000). However, this is no longer as common as earlier, and the word has been used to mean one thousand million (1,000,000,000) for some time. [4] The alternative term "one thousand million" is mainly used in the U.K., or countries such as Spain that uses "one thousand million" as one million million constitutes a billion. The worded figure, as opposed to the numerical figure (one thousand million/1,000,000,000) is used to differentiate between "one thousand million" or "one billion".
