Art Lives in All of Us

For an art exhibit, an artist wanted me to make a sculpture for him. I thought this was an odd request, because I had never done anything like that, nor was I an artist. The artist thought it would be a good chance to prove that anyone could be an artist, regardless of their artistic background. I agreed to do it, but I had no idea what to make. The only thing I really knew how to do was weld, and then it hit me. I started finding scrap metal prices and planning for what would be my artistic masterpiece.

Since I was a welder, I would make a sculpture out of metal. Metal is often seen as something that is used by man and has the perception of being cold and sterile. Continue reading Art Lives in All of Us

An Apartment Complex That is for the Dogs

When I started looking at Toledo Ohio apartments, I only looked at the ones where I was able to have my two dogs with me. While most apartments will now let a tenant have one or two dogs, there are usually weight restrictions on them. Since I have two lab mastiffs, that just didn’t work out in my favor at all. Ames is 130 pounds, and Goopster is 150 pounds. They are the friendliest dogs ever, but it was a challenge finding the right apartment for us. As soon as I looked at Perrys Crossing, I knew that I had found our next home. Continue reading An Apartment Complex That is for the Dogs

Living Near a Mountain is Now a Reality for Me

When I was in college, I used to drive to Asheville with my friends for the weekend. We always had so much fun there. So, when I read about my once in a lifetime dream job being there, I jumped on the chance to put in my resume with the hope that I would at least get an interview. As interested as I was, I did not know if I really had a chance. When I found out I got the job, I was elated. It was time to look through Asheville NC apartments for rent soon after.

One of the reasons that I liked visiting that city during my college years was because of how much fun we had, but that was not the only reasons. It is absolutely beautiful there. The area is surrounded by mountains and wooded areas. Everything is so gorgeous and lush. Continue reading Living Near a Mountain is Now a Reality for Me

Finding an Apartment Suitable for Roommates

Given the number of colleges and businesses in the area, there are many Corpus Christi apartments for rent it is just a matter of finding the one that works best for you and your potential roommate.

Searching for an apartment on your own when you know you will require a roommate or two in the future, can be tricky. Continue reading Finding an Apartment Suitable for Roommates

New Job and New Place to Live in Sandy Springs

My wife got a job at a corporate office in the city of Sandy Springs. We needed to move to cut the commute time. This was a great opportunity for the both of us. It was double the pay she was making at her last job. I work for one of the online giants and have been working from home for several years now. I can work anywhere there is Internet access. We started looking for apartments for Sandy Springs suburbs. We did not want to live right in the city, but we did want to be close. No one likes an hour drive to and from work every day.

We are not city people. We like neighborhoods with trees and lawns. We were thinking about renting a house, but we decided an apartment would be best. Neither one of us had the time for doing mowing and landscaping. Plus, the apartments for Sandy Springs have the same amount of floor space of any house we would have been renting anyway.

Internet Dating Tips – Dating Profile Examples For Men

Let me ask you…

Are you STRUGGLING at meeting women online?

You are? Well, guess what? You aren’t alone. The fact is, MOST men fail at online dating and quit within WEEKS after posting their first online dating profile. Well, why is that? Are all women on Internet dating sites that mean? Do they just NOT like men at all?

No, obviously that isn’t the case! After all, we all know some guys that are having a LOT of success with online dating. You’ve heard about them… right?

“Dude!!! I’m getting laid left and right from women I met on Match.com. What’s your problem??? It’s so easy!”

Well, one of two things is going on there. Either these guys are lying, or they know something the rest don’t. Maybe they searched the net for dating profile examples for men, and found the “perfect dating ad.” Maybe they all look like Brad Pitt.

Well, I’m here to tell you that when it comes to having success with meeting women online, you HAVE to have TWO things right. Screw up either one of them, and you will NOT be meeting ANY women!

The first is your dating profile. This needs to be solid. It needs to really show your personality! The days of laundry lists and facts are LONG GONE! (In fact, I’m not sure these kinds of dating profiles were ever successful.) Women are drawn to EMOTIONS, and in particular mystery and intrigue.

Why do you think romance novels are so popular? Women can’t buy them up fast enough because they CAN’T resist them!

So, making your profile convey a sense of mystery is paramount and you MUST learn how to do it right. No…copying dating profile examples for men off the internet is NOT going to cut it. Women want to meet YOU, not some guy you are pretending to be.

The next thing you want to do is convey a sense of confidence. Use assertive, commanding language in your profile, BUT don’t overdo it. Confidence is sexy, cockiness is a turn off!

Finally, show some humor! Online dating should NOT be serious. Show her you have a clever sense of humor. It’s always great to end your profile by poking fun at other guys on internet dating sites.

So, now you know how to write an eye-catching, compelling online dating profile. That’s the all important FIRST step to online dating success.

The Answer is a Simple One. There is an Exact Science to Applying the Law of Attraction to Build the Life You Seek. This Exact Science is called The Science of Getting Rich. The Law of Attraction as explained in “The Secret” movie, and even in much greater detail in The Science of Getting Rich Program, will teach you whatever it is that you may want or need to manifest in your life.

The Science of Getting Rich was first introduced in 1910 when Wallace D. Wattles released his book by the same title that was the inspiration for the film “The Secret”. What is the Science of Getting Rich about? Well in the words of Wallace D. Wattles, “The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way. Those who do things in this certain way, whether on purpose or accidentally, get rich. Therefore, any man or woman who learns how to do things in this certain way will eventually get rich.” The Secret Science of Getting Rich Seminar is all about teaching you how to do things in this “certain” way to create wealth.

A Brief History of Parallel Programming in Java

Concurrent programming was part of the initial Java specification, although most of the 1.x JDKs available at that time only supported concurrency at the JVM level (using so called green threads) without being able to fully benefit from the multi-core hardware. The Java language already contained the basic primitives (Thread class, wait() and notify() function calls, and the ‘synchronized’ keyword) that are still used nowdays to program modern many-core and multi-core hardware architectures.

Then progressively the JVMs evolved in order to improve mapping of to native threads (beter I/Os, faster context switching). .

As part of JSR 166, Java 5 introduced the java.util.concurrent package, which provides concurrency utilities (concurrent collections, atomic variables, locks) to ease development of concurrent programs and increase maintainability. On the performance front, the newly provided execution framework introduce a pool of reusable worker threads in order to reduce the cost of creating new (native) threads.

The next release, Java 6.0 received a small update as part of JSR 166x: mostly bug fixing and polishing, but also a few new APIs like ConcurrentSkipListMap and ConcurrentSkipSetMap.

Java 7.0, scheduled for mid 2011, will bring some new tools for parallel programming (JSR 166y), a fine-grained concurrent computation framework, some new concurrent data-structures and a new concurrent random number generator (ThreadLocalRandom). The new concurrency framework is based on the fork/join metaphor and can be used for algorithms that can be expressed using divide-and-conquer techniques. Then the work-stealing policy implemented in the framework will ensure that all the concurrent tasks are dispatched efficiently to all available threads (and thus to all available processor cores). It is also worth noticing that some other areas of the JVM are also following this trend (see for example the new thread-safe concurrent class loaders).

Some other features previously scheduled for Java 7.0 were postponed to Java 8.0 after the acquisition of Sun by Oracle (this late split is known as ‘Plan B’) and JSR 166z is supposed to cover these new enhancements. One of the main feature would be the introduction of lambda-like expressions (previously known as Project Lambda and described in JSR 335) and their use in combination with the new ParallelArray framework which provides an integration of data parallelism into the Java language.

Aspects of Computer Science Studies

Computer science or computer studies is a mandatory subject in most elementary and secondary schools. Children are often allowed to play with a mouse and look at a computer screen before they even learn how to read. For the past 20 years, American education has been performed in front of a computer.

It is no wonder that computer science is the new addition to the core curriculum, being on par with math and English. A computer very much is a device that operate with words and algebra, and advanced courses gets into the algebra that is frequently used in computer logic. Even regular math class could be seen as a preparation for computer programming.

The class itself examines the working of a computer and how to operate different types of systems. Most computers today use the Windows and Macintosh systems, but others such as Linux are rapidly gaining in popularity. Computer lab is about understanding the machine as well as developing an understanding of the most basic software.

Understanding computers as a history, a hardware device, and a software application are all subjects in themselves; and students will likely see many different computer classes before graduating High School. What subject would be considered the hard science will depend on the school. Usually at least one lab is dedicated to understanding the internal components of the machine and how to hookup accessories such as printers and fax machines.

The subject as a mechanical science will likely include how to connect processing units into a network or even into a multi-unit server. Using cloud software, it is not uncommon for an institution such as a school to have their own server, using several desktops hooked up in an array. Students might learn how to set up a network or a cloud server before leaving High School.

Technology is rapidly changing, and it is an astonishing fact that some families still do without computers and Internet access in their home. Computer science in schools will invariably include an introduction to the Internet, and might introduce millions of children to the wonders of digital technology for the first time.

The class will inevitably involve the dangers of using a computer, particularly the many forms of fraud and exploitation fostered by the Internet. Getting into someone else’s network or email account is illegal, and learning the criminality of hacking is typically apart of the curriculum.

There are many aspects of computer use, and the only way to gain full access to modern technology is to use it. Lab is about getting as much hands-on experience as possible, using word processors and applications that resemble the Internet. Through a lifetime of exposure, students are capable of using all manner of digital technology before they graduate High School. A person who cannot use the Internet in the modern world might as well be illiterate.
