e need a president who is not only popular in the US but around the world in order to have better relations with other countries. Iran is still a viable threat, with possible nuclear weapons being developed there. As I write this essay, American troops continue to fight in the longest war in US history. Afghanistan reminds me a little of Vietnam; troops would hear of peace talks and be told there will be no conflict as the war will die down and they'll be sent home. That obviously was not the case in Vietnam. The 2014 pullout date in Afghanistan, though it seems final, troops will then go on to other areas in the Middle East, in red zones such as Syria, and aiding the Israelis. Foreign affairs do not only entail military conflict, it is mostly comprised of diplomacy, creating and maintaining 'friendships' with other nations.
I worry for the future of my generation. Having to grow up in this environment where the unemployment rate is at 7.8 percent and college graduates are having an extremely hard time acquiring a job that pertains to their skills concerns me. The problem remains that there are not enough jobs that meet the skill set of most US graduates. This forces companies to seek employees elsewhere. We are the world's strongest economy but the Asian countries are quickly catching up. The next president needs to be clear on what he will do to decrease the national debt, and how to boost the economy so that we may stay competitive as a nation.
I have no say in this year’s election; I am not of age to vote. I have many concerns though, including the quality of my future, along with millions of Americans. In the next ten years I hope to be a positive contributor to both, the American economy and peace in the Middle East and around the…...

...the main ways a group can be identified is through sex. This would be the quickest way to identify a group. Instantly you can determine if someone is a male or female. As well as determining the sex of someone you can just as easily determine the race by skin color. This may allow you to narrow a group down. Although more information would be needed to pin point a person to their actually origin or birth place. There is many ways to distinguish a certain group of people. This may be considered stereotyping, but it is pretty common to see one group of people all doing some of the same things. You could even identify a group of people by the type of food commonly eaten and served. Many nationalities tend to eat at least one type of food that can be identified and related to a certain nationality. The same can be said for a language that a group of people may be speaking. Although there may be common languages spoken among different groups you can sometimes pick up on accents or different words that pin point a region where that a group resides. Identifying a group may not always be easy without research. Without stereotyping a person and actually listening to them a group can be narrowed down pretty quick. Identifying a group can be done by race, religion, sex and language spoken. It can be accomplished by almost anyone just as long as that person is well informed and not quick to pass judgment. 2.......

...operated by the owner of the mobile operating system, such as the Apple App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone Store, and BlackBerry App World. Usually, they are downloaded from the platform to a target device, such as an iPhone, BlackBerry, Android phone or Windows Phone, but sometimes they can be downloaded to laptops or desktops. Mobile apps were originally offered for general productivity reasons, including email, calendar, contacts, stock market and weather information. However, public demand and the availability of developer tools drove rapid expansion into other categories, such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, banking, order-tracking, and ticket purchases. For this assignment I will focus on two apps, Swell Radio and MyFitnessPal. I am a person who is just getting my feet wet when it comes to the tech sector. I am a beginner, and so far I seem to enjoy apps that are rather simple and productivity based. MyFitnessPal Available on: Website myfitnesspal.com Founded 2005 Founder Albert Lee, Mike Lee Product Czar Warren Wan MyFitnessPal is very useful and is a must have when I want to keep track of my calories consumed and burned on a daily basis.

...Web or Mobile App Paper CIS 207 Tim Thacker J Adam Hendricks 05 AUG 2013 The topic of discussion for this paper is going to be on the mobile app “Gas Buddy” for Android. Gas Buddy is one of the most practical apps that I use. I use it on average only about once a week, but it can potentially save me hundreds of dollars a year in gasoline charges if I use it effectively. The way Gas buddy works is that it allows it’s users to locate the nearest gas stations to them or the gas stations in a location they will be in later in the day. This is enabled by utilizing the smart phone’s location services or GPS. In addition to that, Gas buddy will also list the prices of gas at each station for each fuel grade. Since Gas stations vary their prices based on their competition, this app really empowers the consumer by allowing them to see the prices of all the stations in the area. In the old days, we could only compare the prices of gas stations by physically seeing them AT the different stations with our own two eyes and word of mouth. Gas buddy has become our new source for word of mouth communications for gas prices. Gas Buddy is designed so that it’s users post the prices themselves, with the users becoming the dynamic source data that is required for and displayed by Gas buddy. This means that Gas buddy is constantly changing and always up-to-date. On the flip side, Gas buddy is similar to Wikipedia in that it uses open-source data and that data is not 100% reliable....

...Failure can be experienced in many different ways. It’s the decisions you make after you have that experience which determines how you handle the same situation in the future. I’ve experienced failure in many different forms during my high school soccer career. Freshman year i broke my leg winter break and had to re build muscle strength and almost learn how to run again. This showed me that in life things can set you back, it may be crippling physically or mentally but once you overcome those challenges you develope a sense of perseverance and break through challenges! Like Winston Churchill says “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” I also believe that failure is the greatest teacher because you learn from act that didn't work and you learn to adjust and challenge the lack of success you once had. You almost start to develop an algorithm to break through those challenges to avoid failure. You can work on your shooting so you never miss a shot, you can develop new foot placement to change the angle of your shot. You can adjust the way your foot strikes the ball, but in the end its who is stronger mentally and wants the drive who wins! If you remember the fight between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, it was more than just a boxing match it was a mental game! It went 11 rounds and Joe Frazier won defeating Ali for the first time out of 31 fights! It easy ali had a strategy that was a little out of the norm, it was an acting......

You may submit it multiple times if you wish. Only the last submission will be counted. For example, it might be a good idea to go ahead and submit it after you have done the walk-through and gotten that part working. If you wait until the last minute to try to submit and you have problems with the submission script, you’ll likely have to use one of your valuable late days. Be sure to check out the Hints section below! Materials • Before you start this assignment, you will need to download and install the iOS SDK and Xcode 4 from http://developer.apple.com or using the App Store on Mac OSX. It is critical that you get the SDK downloaded and functioning as early as possible in the week so that if you have problems you will have a chance to talk to the CA’s and get help. If you wait until the weekend (or later!) and you cannot get the SDK downloaded and installed, it is unlikely you’ll finish this assignment on time. • The walkthrough document for the first part of the assignment can be found on the class website (in the same place you found this document).

Bad Apps

...So what constitutes a badly-built app? Verizon recently started rating apps on three key criteria: battery consumption, data usage and security risks. For now it is only concentrating on the Top 50 Android apps, but the guide provides useful insight into what Verizon considers best-practice standards for the key criteria. mobiThinking acknowledges there are more key criteria to creating a quality app, in terms of usability, device compatibility, stability etc – and that’s true – but arguably, problems with battery consumption, data usage and security risks are some of the most important of all quality assurance (QA) criteria because: a) they are mostly hidden from consumers; b) they are more easily overlooked by developers; c) the consequences are far reaching. Bad apps affect the performance of the device, battery and network; inflate the phone bill; and most consumers blame the device, operator… anyone except the real culprits. If the user interface (UI) is rubbish or the app keeps crashing, there’s little doubt the app is to blame and users will happily broadcast their verdict in their app reviews. 1) Battery consumption Some mobile applications use a lot of energy, causing unnecessary drain on the (already heavily taxed) device battery. There are numerous reasons why this occurs and, where it is caused by bad, ignorant or devious development practices, it can and should be rectified. Causes of battery depletion include: • Apps that run without the user’s......

...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......

...in large organizations. For an alternative definition of an app: see Application Portfolio Management. [edit] Application software classificationApplication software falls into two general categories; horizontal applications and vertical applications. Horizontal applications are the most popular and widespread in departments or companies. Vertical applications are niche products, designed for a particular type of business or division in a company. There are many types of application software: An application suite consists of multiple applications bundled together. They usually have related functions, features and user interfaces, and may be able to interact with each other, e.g. open each other's files. Business applications often come in suites, e.g. Microsoft Office, OpenOffice.org and iWork, which bundle together a word processor, a spreadsheet, etc.; but suites exist for other purposes, e.g. graphics or music. Enterprise software addresses the needs of organization processes and data flow, often in a large distributed environment. (Examples include financial systems, customer relationship management (CRM) systems and supply-chain management software). Note that Departmental Software is a sub-type of enterprise software with a focus on smaller organizations or groups within a large organization. Examples include travel expense management and IT Helpdesk) Enterprise infrastructure software provides common capabilities needed to support enterprise software......

A Critique of “the Common App Fallacy” by Damon Beres

...Zahraa Rahal Mrs. Nina Shalhoub English 204 1 October 2015 A Critique of “The common App Fallacy” by Damon Beres Damon Beres, a columnist for New York University’s Washington Square News, professes his point view on the Common College Application and lists what he believes to be wrong with it. Beres presents the main bulk of his argument in a conversational tone, which has emphasis over conciseness and logic rather than fact. It is clear from the beginning that Beres’ target audience is: college students, roughly his age, who read the NYU school journal. In his article “The Common App Fallacy,” Damon Beres blasts the Common College Application, citing how the one-size-fits-all application is ruining the college application process. With students just pointing, clicking and applying, colleges are reaping in a new application tithe, leading Beres to postulate that, “it’s a cheap, money making scheme that homogenizes applicants and schools alike.” This rapid fire, mass spamming of applications is what he believes to be pauperizing the college application process. By not engaging in a personalized search for the right college, Beres reflects that students are misappropriating collegiate stock and saturating colleges’ application slots, preventing more invested students from making the cut--shockingly to him, something Beres reasons that the College Board and colleges are indisputably extorting. Beres’ article is most certainly intriguing, if not informative. He......

...Essay of your Choice A portrait of Julia Child leans precariously on my bedside table competing for space with sticky notes, pennies, and a plastic alarm clock. Julia has been my role model ever since I spent an hour at the Smithsonian American History Museum watching cooking show after cooking show. As she dropped eggs, burnt soufflés, and prepared a whole pig, she never took herself too seriously and with her goofy smile and accompanying laugh. And yet, she was as successful in her field as anyone could ever be. Her passion completely guided her career. She taught me that it does not matter what I choose to do, it only matters that I do it with my whole self; zealously and humorously. Unlike Julia, I do not aspire to be a chef. Brownies out of a box may just be the highlight of my baking career. Something I have been passionate about for my whole life, however, is teaching. The first traces of my excitement came from a summer camp that I founded when I was seven years old. Motivated by too many imperfect summer camp experiences, I established my ideal summer camp, one in which campers could choose their activities, from banana split tutorials to wacky hat-making. So that year it began, with seven five-year-old campers in my backyard. For six consecutive years, I ran my summer camp, each year tweaking and improving from the years before. Chebeague Island, Maine, established a preschool in the spring of 2012, run out of a trailer by a recent college graduate. I volunteered...

Third-party iOS and OS X app developers are able to implement iCloud functionality in their apps through the iCloud API.[25] Backup and restore[edit] iCloud allows users to back up the settings and data on iOS devices running iOS 5 or later.[26] Data backed up includes photos and videos in the Camera Roll, device settings, app data, messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS), ringtones, and Visual Voicemails. Backups occur daily when the device is locked and connected to Wi-Fi and a power source. In case of a malfunction of any Apple device, during the restoration process, iCloud offers to restore all data along with App data only if the device was synced to iCloud and backed up. Back to My Mac[edit] Main article: Back to My Mac Back to My Mac, also previously part of MobileMe, is now part of iCloud.[27] As before, this service allows users to log in remotely to other computers that have Back to My Mac enabled and are configured with the same Apple ID.
