zAnti-Trees, Anti-Nature, Anti-People Regime: KARATULA - Pampanga's Statement on the planned cutting of trees in Mabalacat City by Kabataan Partylist Central Luzon on Monday, November 19, 2012 at 12:31am ·
Anti-Trees, Anti-Nature, Anti-People Regime Another Massacre? 486 trees, which are fifty years old, along the Old MacArthur Highway, Mabalacat City, have “X” marks on their trunks. These marks are made by DPWH, as a sign that they will cut these trees, because “because many people have died due to falling branches.” according to Antonio Molano, DPWH Central Luzon director. However, there are no official records that support his claims. Ironically, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, which should be the department that will defend the environment, is the one who submitted the tree-cutting plan to the Office of the President.

Anti-Trees Not only in Mabalacat, but also in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, where the present government planned to cut 576, which are in the side of the MacArthur Highway, from Brgy. Telebastagan to Brgy. Baliti. Their reason is that, there are many motor accidents, which is caused by the trees, as if the trees are moving and the motorist aren’t. But the real reason is they want to widen the road, to lessen the road traffic. But it was proven in Brgy. Sindalan, that that’s not the solution. Actually, there are alternative roads in Pampanga, which the government can improve, like the one in Mega Dike. Unfortunately, it seems that they don’t consider this. While in Baguio, last April, SM planned to cut 182 Pine Trees. SM stated that “the building expansion shall be sustaining the environment, not only the trees, but the other environment aspects such as air quality and energy efficiency.” They are planning to earth-ball the Pine Trees. However, earth-balling a tree is still not good for the…...

The header of the method is as follows: public static double[][] multiplyMatrix(double[][] a, double[][] b) Video Note Multiply two matrices To multiply matrix a by matrix b, the number of columns in a must be the same as the number of rows in b, and the two matrices must have elements of the same or compatible types. Let c be the result of the multiplication. Assume the column size of matrix a is n. Each element cij is ai1 * b1j + ai2 * b2j + Á + ain * bnj .

Basic Directx Transformation with Vb.Net

...How I can rotate an object around itself away from the origin point? A: The best practice is to draw your objects in origin point, rotate them and then translate them to their positions, like this example: 'declare this in your form class: Dim matrix2 As Matrix Sub transform() 'make MatWorld as rotation matrix: MatWorld.RotateZ(Math.PI / 4) 'make matrix2 as translation matrix: matrix2.Translate(0.5, 0.5, 0) 'multiply MatWorld by matrix2: MatWorld = MatWorld * matrix2 'assign MatWorld as world transformation matrix: device.Transform.World = MatWorld End Sub Q: What will happen if I wrote matrix2 * MatWorld instead? A: Matworld * matrix2 means rotate, then translate, but matrix2* MatWorld means translate, then rotate. Q: I want my square keep rotation each frame, how I can do so? A: You must keep rotating your matrix in each frame, like this: 'first make MatWorld identity matrix in the declaration: Dim MatWorld As Matrix = Matrix.Identity Sub transform() 'rotate MatWorld by a rotation matrix: MatWorld = MatWorld * Matrix.RotationZ(0.01) 'make matrix2 as translation matrix: matrix2.Translate(0.5, 0.5, 0) device.Transform.World = MatWorld * matrix2 End Sub Or you can change your angle each time. Q: Is it important to make the matrix identity matrix before any operation? A: No, but when you declare a new matrix, then all its elements are zero, if you multiply new by any other matrix, the......

...clearly implies that mobile plays an important role in the Internet traffic because in the foreseeable future most online users will access the Internet without owning a desktop PC; hence the post-PC era which is sometimes denoted as the emergence of SoLoMo era. Moreover, Reed (2011) indicates that SoLoMo services dominate customer attention mainly because of their social nature. Finally, it is essential to highlight a few points before using SoLoMo as a marketing tool. Turner (2012) states that “SoLoMo is not right for every business” and stresses that businesses should decide if this category of marketing tool is appropriate for them by following the SoLoMo matrix shown in Figure 2. 362 Chapter Fifteen Figure 2: SoLoMo Matrix2 As seen in Figure 2, SoLoMo is not the right marketing choice for manufacturing businesses. SoLoMo, however, is an optimum marketing choice for most retail businesses particularly because it is easier for them to target potential customers on a personalized and targeted basis. Thus, retail businesses should register themselves with location-based services such as Foursquare, Yelp, Path, WHERE, or Facebook Places which are the best-known services for proximity marketing and enable the potential customers to ‘check-in’ as soon as the specific business is registered. Additionally, location-based services such as Groupon, Living Social, and Google Offers ask the specific business to provide a special ‘deal-of-theday’......
