... history. A spark of being well-rounded, found in exploration, gives one more than names and dates, but culture, both modern and ancient. Culture is something one can not effectively understand without immersion with in it. These attributes have created more then just a love of the subject but a hope to pass what I know to another generation. My work in history as it relates to the field of teaching has found inspiration from my early days in high school. The broadening expanses of history extend far beyond simple facts, history is the very study of humanity and why it is this way today. My high school teachers would spend time on things like news, or modern event articles, wherein direct correlation to past events can always be found. My teachers gave insight into many areas of history I find egregiously over-looked including: art, fashion, literature, geography and understanding of timelines. Because of this, and a self-generated interest in all aspects with the subject, I can more fully imagine past events. History runs deep in me, as it does us all. Everyday we are creating history and everyday we have a chance to learn about the past and what makes up the world today. By getting into the history project, I hope to live up to the standards of the school and add my insight to the study, using the degree directly in the field, using principles collected over a life time....

Custom App Company Evaluation

...Dear Mr. Jeff Hasting and Ms. Rachel Becker, Upon request to analyze CAC’s accounting methods and financial statements to better understand the company and come to an investing decision, my accounting team and I have the following information to report: CAC’s Current Financial Situation: Based on the assessment of Custom App Company’s financial statements, we evaluated several of the company’s financial ratios to determine the trend of its profitability, liquidity, and sustainability as well as its investments in the following: (trends are based on CAC’s numbers after adoption of accounting changes; had these changes not been made, these numbers might look very different) * Return on equity generally depicts how much profit a company has generated. Over the past three years, CAC’s return on equity fluctuated from 0.12 to 0.07, denoting that the company experienced a drop in net income. Considerations should be taken that a higher ROE means that the company is efficient at managing its operations through its new investments. * A complete analysis of CAC’s income statement was conducted. In 2011, service revenue was recorded at $136,500 and increased by $73,500 in 2012. One factor that contributed to this increase would be the change of service contracts. Mr. Zamble replaced several multiyear service contracts to 10-month contracts. Multi-year contracts are annual and recorded on a month-to-month basis. This affected 2012 because the service revenue would have...

Note: When you copy/paste the code, you’ll need to press Ctrl-Shift-O to import the necessary packages. Sometimes you’ll need to select the Android version of the package (usually the top option). For the edit box area make sure you import the android.view.View.OnKeyListener not the android.content.DialogInterface.OnKeyListener.

The game you will be developing is called Lights Out. The goal of Lights Out is usually to click lights and eventually turn them all off, hence the name “Lights Out”. When a user clicks a light it toggles the state of the light that was clicked and toggles the state of all neighbor lights. Instead of lights we’ll just use 0 and a 1 and try to make all the buttons match. In our version we will have a line of exactly seven buttons arranged in a line. We fix the number to keep it simple; in a future version, we will make the number of buttons variable. Note that clicking on the first or last button in the line toggles only two buttons. Clicking any other button...

...The event that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood within my family was not easy nor tranquil, yet a long journey that was extremely challenging. During the time span from 2012-2013 I was submerged in the experience of my sophomore year of high school. Looking back on my sophomore year, I remember being carefree, still just a kid. Likewise, the only worries I had to fret over was finding my place in the large social scene of my high school and what time softball practice was. However, all that began to change a few weeks into the New Year of 2013, where my life was turned upside down. In January, my father underwent a L4-L5 spinal fusion. He was a paramedic. My father has such a beautiful and inspiring passion for helping others and our community. Unfortunately, his passion was put to a halt due to his tragic injury. In addition, post-operation left my dad in a state of complete dependency because he was left unable to walk for a large portion of the recovery process, as well as the indescribable pain he had to endure every single day. Without any source of immediate income, with my father unable to work, my family soon ourselves in financial catastrophe. Soon after, my mother served my father divorce papers and quickly moved out; leaving my dad, my younger sister, and I to in simplest form, fend for ourselves. Consequently, the absence of my mother, shook the roles of the family, and left a scar on all of our hearts. The result of her decision, was...

Mobile App Development

... devices in our days are smartphones and PDAs, which are capable of using some of the powers of a conventional computer in environments where carrying one would not be practical. b. Smartphones A smartphone is a mobile phone with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than the basic feature phones. Early smartphones typically combined the features of mobile phone with those of another popular consumer device, such as a personal digital assistant(PDA), a media player, a digital camera and a GPS navigation unit. The modern smartphones include all those functionality. Moreover, they feature a touch screen, web browsing, Wi-Fi and 3rd party apps and accessories. c. Mobile Application Software A mobile application is an application software designed to run on smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices. Mobile applications are usually available through application distribution platforms like App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone or BlackBerry App World. From the application distribution platforms, the applications are downloaded directly to the device or they could be downloaded onto a computer and installed into the device afterwards. Originally offered for general productivity and information retrieval, mobile applications rapidly expanded into other categories like mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, banking, order-tracking, ticket purchases and mobile medical applications.

App Developer

...A 12-year-old app developer TEDxManhattanBeach · 04:40 · Filmed Oct 2011 I've always had a fascination for computers and technology, and I made a few apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. I'd like to share a couple with you today. My first app was a unique fortune teller called Earth Fortune that would display different colors of earth depending on what your fortune was. My favorite and most successful app is Bustin Jieber, which is — (Laughter) — which is a Justin Bieber Whac-A-Mole. I created it because a lot of people at school disliked Justin Bieber a little bit, so I decided to make the app. So I went to work programming it, and I released it just before the holidays in 2010. A lot of people ask me, how did I make these? A lot of times it's because the person who asked the question wants to make an app also. A lot of kids these days like to play games, but now they want to make them, and it's difficult, because not many kids know where to go to find out how to make a program. I mean, for soccer, you could go to a soccer team. For violin, you could get lessons for a violin. But what if you want to make an app? And their parents, the kid's parents might have done some of these things when they were young, but not many parents have written apps. (Laughter) Where do you go to find out how to make an app? Well, this is how I approached it. This is what I did. First of all, I've been programming in multiple other programming languages to get the basics down, such...

Banking App

...Banking APP In today’s world a phone is more than just a device that makes calls to family, friends and businesses, we are doing so much more than we ever could imagine in the past. The smart phone is the new device where we are able to do so much more than just talking, the wireless technology has taken the office and put it in the palm of our hands and made it mobile, so we can do those office functions remotely. The advantages of this technology in short is that it allows more communication with others through not only talking but also through texting and internet which has allowed face to face communicating like skype and Apple’s face time to name a few. We are also dependent on our smart phone to help us navigate through our day from the calendar to remember appointments, meetings, doctors’ appointments, alarms, GPS, internet, social media, shopping and mobile banking which all of these are applications that make day-to-day life a little easier. Many of the changes that we have seen when it comes to smart phone technology have improved quite a bit of the last ten years or so and are that people are using those features and functions that are convenient for them. Much of this can be contributed to the fact that in today’s times we have less and less time to ourselves, we need more convenient ways to do more in shorter amount of time and smartphones and APPS are a way to get this done .
