Machiavelli dedicated his book to the young prince, but in the Central Works production by Gary Graves, Machiavelli actually presents it to him, in hopes of putting to an end his banishment at the hands of the Republic. The result is a play running just over an hour that is absolutely captivating — like watching a chess match between morality and practical politics. Machiavelli (Mark Farrell) has been invited to the palace by Lorenzo (Cole Alexander Smith) to discuss the possibility of reinstatement. But the discussion quickly turns into a sly cat-and-mouse game where Machiavelli has to convince Lorenzo he no longer favors the republican form of government while Lorenzo must extract from Machiavelli some sort of help reforming the hostile politics of the era and bring peace to the city/state of Florence.

“Coding and programming is everywhere nowadays,” said Jason Mortensen, a teacher at theCoderSchool in San Mateo. “Everyone who wants to learn how to code is able to.”. In San Mateo, theCoderSchool teaches coding indiscriminately to students from first-grade through high school. So when 15-year-old Nikki Dadlani said he wanted to code, Mortensen took him on. Nikki uses a voiceover screenreader system on his Mac to help him work online because he is visually impaired. The screenreader is not compatible with all programming applications, so Mortensen said they just had to find the right program to fit Nikki’s needs. They code in the Python language because it relies on indentations instead of brackets, which are confusing in the screenreader.

They’re increasingly worried about its presence in some cities as unlicensed broadcasters commandeer frequencies to play anything from Trinidadian dance music to Haitian call-in shows. And they complain the Federal Communications Commission can’t keep up with the pirates, who can block listeners from favorite programs or emergency alerts for missing children and severe weather. Helped along by cheaper technology, the rogue stations can cover several blocks or several square miles. Most broadcast to immigrant communities that pirate radio defenders say are underserved by licensed stations.
