Programming Tutorial Android Development; Andengine

P1

Finally Ive been able to check out the Game programming for Android. Ive found several Android game programming tutorials out there, but none of them were really exciting or user friendly. However, I was able to find an open source game engine which makes the life of a programmer a lot easier when it comes to game programming for the Android platform.

Andengine

The Andengine is an open source, free game engine strictly aimed at the Android platform. It offers Physics such as gravity or collision checks to the developer. Its based on OpenGL and offers a lot of functions which make the life of a game developer a lot easier. The advantages of this game engine are that you dont need to mess around with OpenGL directly when programming games for Android. You get some easy to use and fancy classes, so you can develop fast and efficient games in no time! Also this game engine is being developed on right now, so its not like a game engine which is dead and has a low user base. Its very wide spread and there are a lot of apps out there on the Android Market (obviously games) which were programming using the AndEngine. However, there is one problem with this game engine, which will probably scare away a lot of users; the documentation. The game engine might be coded fine and you can view the source code, but there is no or low documentation. There are examples out there for basically anything your game developer heart desires, also there is a community that will be glad to help you out, but there is no Javadoc for example, which is a badly wound for the AndEngine. However, its open source and free, so you cant expect more, its just great!

My own experiences with the Andengine

To be honest I havent had that much experience with the AndEngine. I have just been playing around for a while now with the examples out there and I will soon post some game tutorials in the near future on this blog, so you can get a feeling for the AndEngine. However, it seems that stuff which should be very easy to do, such as loading a picture into the memory, is not that easy using the AndEngine. Let me put it in another way, it is easy and user friendly, but its not very intuitive, you will need to get a feeling for the AndEngine first, if you have been programming with other Game development kits or engines, it has its own special approach. However, the code is very readable and well maintainable. Also the source is very well written and basically anybody with some Java and Android knowledge will be able to understand the source code more or less.

Forex Robot Vs. Human Trader Who Will Win

i5

Forex Robot vs. Human Trader Who will win?
Or is there any competition!
Can a Forex Robot out-trade a highly experienced human?
Can the Robot have the necessary intuition and savvy to ascertain when a trade is viable, or when to exit the trade?
A robot is mechanical in concept, its judgement calls are based not on emotion but on rational facts.
Admittedly the Human does have the ability to sense a good trade, the ability to instinctively know that the trade is not working out, the ability also and unfortunately to get it wrong.
Of course the Robot will not get it right all the time, but does this matter.
No, it does not matter and quite rightly.
What we ask of an Automated Forex Robot is that it maintains a forward and controlled slope upward of profitability. That it maintains a balanced approach to the trades, that it maintains a predictable money management and risk control policy.
The Robot does not suffer the problem of distraction, tiredness, the need for a break, and the lack of focus that comes from watching a computer screen endlessly.
The human trader may have instinct, intuition, savvy, experience and the ability to feel a good trade, but the Human is only Human, with all the foibles that this entails.
What I look for in my trading is profit in a controlled manner, the robot still will come up Trumps for this.
Of course, it depends on the Forex Robot, and how it is set up.
The Robot needs to be researched, demoed, and a plan formulated before going live.
I know from Personal experience that once you have reached this position, what is necessary then is to go live. Take note on my other articles on the website that state that this should be with the trading program hosted on a VPS host. We do need the program to remain live. We certainly do not want the computer to crash, hibernate; power down etc as sometimes happens with our personal computers and laptops.
Also, from personal experience it is vitally important to let the program run without human input. The desire to take a profit before the trade has reached its profit level always remains strong.
The program must take profits and must take losses.
What we must do is evaluate the results at the end of each 24 hour period. If it is making profit then our only decision is whether to increase the lots traded.
I, for one believe that the Robot will always beat the Human is terms of long-term sustainable profitability.

IRobot Roomba Robot Vacuum Cleaner

B

Today’s iRobot Roomba is ceaselessly developing its technology to adjust to changing way of life and wishes of people.

There have just been 3 generations of Roomba units since its first appearance in the market.

The most significant thing about technology is that it continually wants to enhance. It’s so crucial to stay alongside of the changing times or lose your place with the competition. The people behind the IRobot Concern recognize the obligation to meet the demands of their clients. Now, you can rest straightforward when you buy your own iRobot Roomba as you know they’d nothing except for the best in mind when they made this fantastic piece of mechanism.

The first model was named Roomba, and it came in both Pro and Pro Select.

These 2 products came in a metallic merlot red clear coat finish with chrome and black trim. The difference between the two was the Select version had the new spot and max cleaning cycle, a remote, and a wall mount. The second generation was supplied with a bigger dustbin, a dust detector, and the optional home base. Accessories like a wall scheduler, a filter pack, a self charger, and other useful comforts could be used to make work more easy. The succeeding generations like the 5xx and 500 series, had added features implemented on its system.

This is assumed to be the swiftest cleaning device available out there. These things only need forty five mins to dust and vacuum an average-sized room. Who can try for more from these mini cleaners?

The previous mode immediately works out the dimensions of the room while suitably adjusting its cleaning time. It adjusts itself to determine the walls, corners, and barriers. The main point of the sensor is to identify out and internally mark the areas it might not go to. This mode is most frequently selected by those that need to cover each corner in the room without being concerned about the space utilised by the furniture. The second mode, on the other hand, spirally approximates three feet in diameter as it travels in a coil till it is back to where it started. This is prepared to intensely and fastidiously clean a certain local area.

The new models of the Roomba ( models 550 and above ) have the booked Cleaning Mode. This essentially implies that the daily cleaning time is programmed to start and end on schedule. When the robot is scheduled to bathe, it occasionally flashes its next cleaning time as a reminder to its owner. When its internal clock reaches the cited time, it mechanically leaves its Homebase to start the chore. It only stops when work is done or when battery is empty. As quickly as the mechanism senses the power drainage, it is after itself by returning once more to its port.

Rudraksha Science Therapy

Rudraksha Power unleashed

Rudra Centre has been involved on very intensive study on the effects of Rudraksha Beads and in the past six months,discovered new facts which were unknown till date. Studies done jointly with Doctors and Scientists from India and abroad have clearly shown that Rudraksha Power has been untapped of its true capacity till date. We have now discovered the true Secret of Rudraksha Power.

>> Rudraksha is the most powerful blessing on the Earth with capacity to change your destiny.

>> It pulls you away from the limitations of your birth chart.

>> It pacifies unfavourable planets in your chart.

>> It removes the blockage from your system making you whole and divine.

>> IT’S MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY KNOWN REMEDY TILL DATE.

The secret lies in selecting quality beads and most important assembling it correctly in a necklace or bracelet, and then chanting the appropriate mantra’s to invoke the power.Anyone can sell Rudraksha as a bead, but to sell it as a power bead and unleash its power needs true knowledge. Without this knowledge only a fraction of its power is realised.All Rudraksha malas and combinations from Rudra Centre are henceforth being sent according to the new Research. We recommend clients to get the beads strung from us rather than string themselves. Without correct stringing style, Rudraksha bead do not form a circuit and do not give effect. The most powerful combination of beads can become non effective if not strung in the correct style. This correct stringing pattern has been revealed to Rudra Centre after intensive research and will be used for the benefits of our clients.

Current Science Article Stem Cell Research in the Spotlight Once Again

T13

Recent discoveries about the role of stem cells in cancer have altered the landscape of cancer research, says Medical News Today. There is, however, a long-running philosophical rift over stem cell research at both the state and federal levels. Some groups would rather focus on adult stem cell research, avoiding the moral and ethical questions about research involving embryos. While ethical debate on human embryonic stem cells will continue, much more is occurring on the rings surrounding this bull’s-eye issue, including research in both drug development and adult stem cells.

Biologists’ understanding of new sources and uses of adult and nonembryonic stem cells is advancing rapidly. Called “niches” or “crypts,” it seems that almost anyplace one looks in the body (nose, eye, hair follicle, intestine, bone marrow, central nervous system), stem cells are being found. From such basic knowledge, it has been reported that successful animal and human therapy using patient stem cells is already occurring. As more stem cell crypts are discovered, the desire to understand how to manipulate them within the body only becomes more acute.

At the 2007 Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, researchers presented new discoveries about stem cells in leukemia, breast and colon cancer that add to the growing evidence that perhaps cancer is, fundamentally, a stem cell problem.

Interviewed by Vision Magazine at the Stem Cells World Congress earlier this year in La Jolla, California, veterinarian and CEO of Vet-Stem, Robert Harmon, explained how his company is currently providing stem cell therapies for animals. Injected into an injury or degenerated tissue, the stem cell treatment evokes healing in unprecedented ways. As it has been since its discovery almost 400 years ago, the cell and the “vital force” that makes it the seat of biological life continues to hold attention. It is likely that there will be no end to the moral and ethical questions and investigations. Today’s new age of molecular understanding, genomics, proteomics, gene splicing and bioengineering is barely underway. It is not surprising, then, that the more we know, the more we recognize how little we understand.

The timeline of discovery has been exponential: from discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953, and the understanding of the genetic code, gene splicing and cell differentiation in the 60s, 70s and 80s, science rapidly jumped up the learning curve to the cloning of whole organisms and the discovery of embryonic stem cells less than a decade ago. The future possibilities for the application of this knowledge seem enormous.

Using an XML Content Server for Profitable Publishing Instead of Investing in Publishing Software

ZF

Publishing enterprises today are looking to new platform applications instead of purchasing publishing software to help their content produce profits in this electronic age. The publishing industry has changed its market from traditional paper media to the electronic age of publications. Instead of publishers giving away their content online by means of the World Wide Web, publishing companies are reining in their valuable information and using XML platforms on top of their existing contentbases to create new products, reuse existing content and take advantage of XML management all without the need to purchase publishing software. >

In this electronic age, where so much content is virtually free and accessible, with online advertising as the form of income, publishing houses have been competing to still make a profit from their enormous content bases aside from online ads alone. Now, with XML as basically a standard, at least for the W3C, publishing houses are choosing to go with an XML platform, like an XML content server to fully maximize their content and help with content management. All forms of content can be easily converted into XML with an XML content server, including paper files, graphics and charts and graphs. The XML content server provides an XML platform allowing organizations to unlock the value of existing content where it previously wasnt profitable before.

Other large contentbase organizations have benefit from this XML platform: Government, insurance and any other private or public organization that do not wish to complimentary publicize online- though needs an enterprise search to filter all of their content can use an XML content server for exactly the same purpose. With an enterprise search, your organization is able to only search within its secure database and retrieve more than just pages showing listings of files that may have what you are looking for, these XML servers retrieve whole articles, texts, images and even video all within one query into the enterprise search engine.

Because XML a common standard for most of the web, blogs, online books and articles and not to mention Office Open XML, where OOXML automatically creates content into XML, with an XML content server and OOXML its no wonder that enterprises are turning to XML platforms to aid their content into new and profitable ways.

Second Hand It Hardware

A computer is a combination of software and hardware parts, both of which are very much important to the proper running of the system. New computer hardware parts such hard-disks and RAM remain high in price because they continue to improve in capacity and speed, and if one holds onto computer equipment for a long time, then it can become obsolete. There is however a way to buy the same equipment in cheap prices, by purchasing it second-hand.
There are three main methods of purchasing used products:

-Buying directly from dealers and sale brokers: When purchasing used IT Hardware equipment from dealers and brokers, people should use common sense and should follow some basic rules. People should read the license agreement before purchasing the equipment and see whether there is a return/warranty policy. Test everything before purchasing the hardware equipment. Hardware parts such as system RAM, keyboard, mouse and monitor should be rigorously checked before purchasing the product.

-Online dealers: There are many online shopping sites available to buy second hand IT Hardware equipment. Sites like E-Bay, Amazon, OLX, etc are some of the sites where sellers advertise their used products online. If a person wants to sell his used PCs hardware parts separately, such as the hard-disk or RAM, he can do so by registering a new account with any of the above sites. He can then upload his products details and the price he is looking for. The buyers can check the product details and can communicate with the seller through online chat or messaging systems for any clarification, and if the buyer wants to buy the selected product he pays through online payment and will receive the product in the post. Online auctions have become a very popular way for sellers to sell their second hand equipment and earn money at the same time.

-Buying directly from the manufacturer: Manufacturing companies such as Sony and Dell sometimes have a second hand market where they used and refurbished IT hardware products. Mainly these are computer parts which have had some kind of problem and have had to be returned to the manufacturer under the manufacturer warranty. The problem may have been relatively superficial; such as the box being damaged, or a light scratch on the back of a monitor. The manufacturer is not legally allowed to sell the equipment as new, so they must find other ways to offload this problem equipment, sometimes at bargain prices.

Your Computer Hardware What Metals Might It Contain

T17

When thinking about a computer you might think that there is nothing really to it; a bunch of hardware coupled with software that allows you to surf the web in a timely manner depending on the quality of the hardware its composed of, as well as the service that is provided by your internet service provider. What you may not know is what exactly is your computer hardware composed of and what metals it may contain? This question will be answered for you in full via the article written below.

One of the key components of a computer is the computer chip. These chips most commonly include metals such as aluminum, arsenic, palladium, antimony, barium, beryllium, selenium silver, chromium, manganese, cadmium, copper, cobalt, gold, gallium, iron, lead, mercury, platinum, and zinc. So as you can see just the makeup of the microchip itself is complex and thats only listing the metals, not the other materials required such as various plastics.

As computers become obsolete its very important to note that they contain lots of recoverable and recyclable metals from their wires and circuit boards. The metals aluminum, copper, gold, platinum and silver are of the most importance when it comes to harvesting old computers. The older the computer the more of these metals that are involved, as time progresses and newer computers are made they try to limit the amount of these precious metals because of the cost involved without affecting the computers performance, with time this number is sure to decrease further and with the size of computers as well as laptops getting thinner and smaller its inevitable that they will eventually require a very small amount of these precious metals anymore.

So now as youre surfing online checking out the latest sites, remember there is more to your computer then just a plastic shell, it contains a lot of worth even if its not in working condition, and dont simply throw it away and get a new one, use it as an opportunity to reintroduce these metals back into circulation and donate it to a recycling facility. After all recycling helps to reduce our carbon footprint on the world, and by simply junking your computer instead that increases it as the refuse contains deleterious elements such as arsenic, mercury and who can forget sulfur, which will end up in the air we breathe.

The Mind Robot

X

This is why a coach is so crucial. You need someone to hear your statements and point them out to you, help you question them, and then release them or replace them.

My interview with Steve really made me aware that none of us listen to our language closely enough. I sometimes catch myself complaining or stating a limiting belief. I have to pause and ask myself, -Is the belief true in objective reality?-

In other words, is it a fact we can all agree on and even measure?

More often than not, it isn’t.

Years ago, when I trained with famed bodybuilder and Olympia winner Frank Zane, I was urged to watch my mouth. Frank would tell me, -I pay attention to how people speak. Your statements are usually empowering, but when you got under the squat rack, you started to say you couldn’t do it.-

He was right.

Frank wanted me to learn that my thoughts were leading me to create my own limitations. My statements about what was possible were in fact programming me to expect the very thing I declared. I was programming a robot: me.

I’m inviting you to monitor your thoughts and your language. What you say is programming you. As Steve pointed out in our in-depth interview, your words are speaking reality into being. But the reality you speak is one fabricated because of what you speak.

Here’s what Steve suggests you do right now to remedy this:

Speak as if what you want is already true. -I am a multi-millionaire.- -I am in love with the perfect person for me.- -I am healthy.- You get to choose. Make it now, present tense, and positive.

Watch for clues. Your subconscious will hear your new language and begin to offer evidence for it. It will, in a sense, test you. Be sure to take action on the opportunities that arise, to prove you are becoming that which you speak you already are.

Be that person. In other words, feel as though you already are what you said. Your emotion will stir motion in and around you to bring the desired state into being.

As you review this post, what comes to mind?

What are your thoughts right now?

Do you believe you can reprogram your mind?

Do you believe you can have, do, or be virtually anything?

This is all part of the process of deprogramming the robot of you. It’s about freeing yourself of limitations. How you answer reveals your beliefs, not objective reality. You can remain programmed by circumstances and upbringing and past beliefs; or you can begin the process to take control right now and reprogram yourself for what you want.

Remember, your subconscious mind will look for evidence to prove what you believe and expect.

So, what would be really good for you to believe right now?

Singing Lessons Software – Don’t Bang Your Head!

i5

There are some good beginner singing lessons software programs out there if you look in the right places. Some programs don’t live up to their hype. I stick with the ones, which have a long established track record.

Just like anything, I always make sure to seek others, who have used something before I consider buying it. There are a couple of good learn singing guides you can download now, which eliminate the need for expensive vocal coaches. For me, singing lessons got expensive and I felt like I didn’t need them anymore to just review what we already learned.

With a decent beginner singing lessons software program, you don’t have to learn something one week with a teacher and then pay them again to review your progress and go over the same stuff.

I can usually hear my own progress as a singer or I can record myself to hear the progress. With a decent instruction program, they will have recording software and ways to play back what you just practiced into the mic. There are also ways to improve with singing games, which come with some programs. This might suit some aspiring singers more than hiring expensive vocal coaches.

Don’t get me wrong, some vocal coaches are absolutely fantastic, but who can afford them on a weekly basis? I sure couldn’t as an aspiring musician with a decent pay check coming from my day job. That’s why some teachers will even tell you they’re finished with you after you have four or five lessons. This is admirable when teachers do this because they could keep trying to milk you for more money.

So there are a few good programs out there just find which one has the best reputation and which one is created by someone well knows in singing circles. That way, you are less likely to be disappointed with the beginner singing lessons software that you decide to acquire.

Several Tips To Create An Interesting Multimedia Presentation

A

Nowadays, we are faced with the presentation almost every time. Generally, many of us use slide applications, like Microsoft Power Point or Open Office Presentation. Obviously, the simplicity of this slide application provides for limitation to be able to display an interesting visual presentation. Therefore, the multimedia application, like Macromedia Flash can help a lot.

Like a story, a multimedia presentation also needs to be preceded by an interesting intro and in accordance with the theme of material presented. For example; a multimedia presentation of Pepsodent Nightbrushing by SmartShell tells about the program and Pepsodent strategy that invites consumers to brush his teeth every night. The threat of night germs is the prologue of multimedia presentation.

Told in the intro, a child who sleeps at night is not free from the threat of oral bacteria. The germs remain in action even though the child is sleeping. For that reason, it is important to brush your teeth before sleeping. The use of music and sound effects also helps to build the atmosphere of the presentation. If you do not create an uninteresting multimedia presentation, it is impossible for the audience to be interested in seeing the presentation material further.

Then, you should pay attention to the content division of presentation, the right stage, and the presentation order. Visual, music, and sound effect that are relevant with the presentation material will keep the audience on being interested to pay attention to your presentation.

If the presentation material that you give is full of texts, set the gap among others by inserting illustrations, photographs, video or other applications. This step is should be done to relieve the burden on viewers’ eyes who tend to be tired when being confronted with continuous text.

Finally, end the presentation with the conclusion that directs viewers to the message you want to convey. If necessary, complete it with video or animation to visualize the various possibilities you can get from the implementation of the materials that you deliver.
