Ever wonder how some people can live an eccentric life even though they don't seem to have a job that is any better than yours? If you have writing experience, online editiing is a quick and easy way to make some extra cash each week. The key to working online is to set a value on your skills and time and do not accept part time jobs that pay you less than that valuation. A major jump forward on the path to folk music was the discovery in the late 1980s of the existence of Godfrey Daniels folk club in Bethlehem, PA. When Chris announced to the songwriters at Jack's that he'd joined the Army, they all shuddered in disbelief. Although the lead character is a female, Chris says that she's partially his alter ego in the.
When Chris was finally discharged from the Army in 1995, he got back to the business of being a folksinger. Anyone who's ever strapped on a hollow-body in Jack's vicinity has heard that howl of protest.
Through all the violence of the military novels and the stumbling forward of Thatcher in Hoboken, Chris describes all three novels as love stories. Chris has made a number of appearances on NPR, as a guest on Terry Gross's Fresh Air and as a semi-regular commentator on All Things Considered, and links to his ATC radio essays are available through his site.
The above descriptive passage encapsulates why my reaction to Chris's work is so strong.A  You look down and you read and it's all there.
The Eclipse Foundation is presenting Helios In Action - a virtual conference where you can interact with project leads involved in the release and see demos of the new features. With this said, I recently decided that the PsychoPath XPath processor needed to migrate off of the Athena Common build script that it had been using to a Maven based build. Join Java and Eclipse expert Phil Quitslund as he presents best practices for creating effective, consistent, and robust user interface tests. Integrating BIRT with Spring in a Web applicationand Eclipse BIRT in Spring web applicationsare a couple of examples.There is not much information on how to include Spring Beans within a report design.
Last week we held our first EclipseLink Summit here in Ottawa with attendees from Canada, Germany, India, and the US. We just need 189 more people to join by the end of July to hit our goal of 360 Friends of Helios.  If you haven’t already joined please consider joining today. Side note: Last August after the disaster with bugfix propagation between different branches in the FindBugs project I've started to looking for a replacement for the SVN (which was the evil system). There are no groundbreaking changes - mostly some code polishing and few small enhancements, as most of my plugins are mature enough. At this year's Eclipse Summit Europe there was a very nice Xtext-related talk given by Sebastian Benz who is working at BMW Car IT.The talk was about how they used Xtext in order to develop a textual syntax and corresponding IDE for the AUTOSAR standard.

There are a number of options to explore and the type of online work you choose will really be based around your skills. There are plenty of places that hire editors and accordingly the rate of pay varies significantly.
John told them that, if they really wanted to take songwriting seriously, they should get themselves to Greenwich Village in New York City to Jack Hardy's song circle.
It contains some of the most harrowing scenes of what fatigue and nerves can do to a human being from boot camp onward into the battle zone.
Again he pulls the reader underneath the skin of the characters to bring a more complete understanding of what it is to be soldier. Although he was basically a Pennsylvanian, he spent enough time in Hoboken with friends, crashing on couches, that he was easily assimilated into the cadre that would become Camp Hoboken.
Those of us who knew Chris and the Hoboken crew back then are having a field day connecting the characters with their real-life counterparts. Chris could've stopped there, but, of course he would need to describe Geoff's small apartment with the pictures of the wall of a€?Geoffa€? and other icons of folk music, the imbibing of wine and sharing of songs. There are entries for reviews, interviews and some stories of day-to-day experiences that are infused with humor.

At the end of the event, we’ll have some frosty beverages and snacks ready for some great discussions!
The annual simultaneous release has now grown to 39 projects with over 33 million lines of code, contributed by committers around the world. Apple takes care of billing, taxes, and other administrative tasks, and in return takes a 30% cut of all sales.
Sven and me will give a free one hour live seminar on Xtext introducing the framework and demonstrating its new fancy features in Helios.
Although I do enjoy a good Guiness I am also looking forward to the conference and the topics I am covering this week as well as the hours of travel to catch up on some pre-release tasks.
The first half was about technical details and tips behind Android game development, but the second half was just about good game development for mobile platforms. The user interface (UI) of an application is your front-line connection with the customer—if it doesn’t look good and work effectively the first time, your company reputation is at stake. Since we launched the campaign 171 people have joined as a Friend of Eclipse.   Thank you, thank you, thank you! BTW, 5 of the plugins are hosted now on Eclipse Labs and using Mercurial as version control system behind. I quickly became the committer rights in the MercurialEclipse plugin - and now few months later I've managed all of my project updates in a full featured IDE without the command line. The name of the project is ARText and it is freely available to all AUTOSAR members as part of the Artop project.One of the biggest challenges when implementing the AUTOSAR standard is to create scalable solutions.

With the explosion of Social Media and Blogging the number of online editing jobs continues to grow each year too as companies try to keep their content up to date and current. In his late teens, Chris began to read more about Woody Guthrie and take a deeper interest the music of Woody, Pete Seeger and traditional folk. Chris made sure to take his notebook and his memory of events was till fresh enough in the late 90's to build evocative scenes and crisp dialogue.
Chris spent the next few years traveling around the country singing in coffeehouses and clubs. The one about editing a book about chefs, then taking a trip to a restaurant in California is sidesplitting (figuratively, and for Chris, almost literally). Chris madeA  sure to take his notebook and his memory of events was till fresh enough in the late 90's to build evocative scenes and crisp dialogue.
The rest goes directly to developers.For free applications, developers can make money by showing advertisements instead of on the sale of the app.
I don’t follow the software methodology space that closely but I was surprised by the fact that 1) 25% of the respondents don’t use a methodology and 2) the most popular, Scrum, has only 15% adoption.  The rest of the respondents identified over 18 different methodologies that they use for a development methodology.
In the survey, we asked a question about the corporate policies towards open source participation.
AUTOSAR projects might become very, very big and in order to work with such huge projects the tools need to perform very well. He is also Chairman of The Weir Group plc, Glasgow 2014 (the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, and Non-executive Director of Standard Bank Group Ltd.

In 1982 he joined Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), as a loan officer in the Western Africa department. An intensified interest in acoustic music was sparked by hearing James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Bob Dylan and the band America.
First, he said, "Make sure you bring a notebook And your guitar if you can, but if you can't, take your notebook. His sharp-witted humor came across in his performances and would serve him well in the career to come. But sure, that was him, Stephen Foster all shacked up at 601 Bloomfield in the cold year of our Lord 1854.
I bring this up because it's not an easy thing to do and many writers seem clumsy in that area. In 2009 48% claimed they could contribute back to OSS but in 2010 only 35.4% claim they could contribute back.
Even after 13 years of helping customers use TopLink and now EclipseLink I still find diagnosing, solving, and innovating in these areas some of the most interesting work I take part in.
Pretty much every mobile platform vendor is creating some sort of one stop shopping experience for their devices and it's a great vehicle for app developers to quickly get their wares into the hands of paying customers. Xtext itself provides a concise language to describe DSLs, so that it takes only minutes to create a first draft of your language. He has held positions on various private and public boards including the Financial Services Authority and Financial Reporting Council (FRC), and a number of key positions within the banking industry. Shaun previously worked at Shell in Europe, the US and Asia and for Centrica’s retail power business in the US.

He married his high-school sweetheart and his first daughter, Kristina, was born the day before he graduated high school. Second, when you pull the pin, don't forget to throw the grenade!" Chris found both pieces of advice very useful.
It has a stainless steel outer cover that doubles as the antenna for Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, UMTS, and GSM. Helping customers learn what they need to know about their models and application use cases and translating them into their object-relational mappings, schema, and usage of their persistence layer is challenging and often poorly understand by Java developers.The persistence layer enables performance and scalability but there are many simple decisions developers can make while configuring and coding to their persistence layer which are made early in projects and have big effects late in projects when trying to reach their performance and scalability goals. And with systems like Valve's Steam, you also get this great experience on your desktops and laptops.The biggest advantage of markets, as Chris illustrated, is that it's also a great way to keep in touch with your customers.
You don't have to deal with complex meta programming or multiple syntax alternatives as you do in internal DSL development. We know it was tough to squeeze this additional work into your hectic pre-Helios schedules. He also founded and chaired the Low Carbon Finance Group, a group of the leading investors in the clean energy space. Leonie holds a Master in Environmental Science, Business Ethics and International Sports Management.
Currently he holds the position of Head of Division of the Environment, Climate and Social Office of the EIB. In particular, part time online jobs teaching English as a second langiage, if you are a competent teacher, are easy enough to find in order to make some extra cash.
When Chris heard this, he didn't believe it at first, thinking that way of life had ended around 1942.
Some of the songs played in that circle would go on to be included in the recordings of the Fast Folk Musical Magazine, founded by Hardy. And Mr Marconi, ladies and gentlemen, with his transmitters and wireless signals You might ask where would Francis Albert be without Mr.
There’s a camera and LED flash on the back, and two microphones for noise cancellation (like the Nexus One). If you're based in Germany's Ruhr area, you might want to visit the Eclipse Demo Camp in Dortmund. Customers tend to be brutally honest about what you've provided them, and it's good to get first hand looks at that feedback. The feedback from all attendees was excellent.On the 3rd day of the Summit we focused more on the project itself.
However, the folks at BMW Car IT wanted to develop AUTOSAR projects in a traditional text-based manner and given all the good experiences with tools like JDT or IntelliJ, it's clear that text-based IDEs can scale very well.In order to implement the language they first had tried the old Xtext version from oAW, which was way too slow.
Along with Jack, Chris was hanging out with Frank Tedesso, David Massengill, Richard Shindell, Richard Julian and Hugh Blumenfeld. He also played guitar and sang around the local circuit.A  Although he would realize later, that a number of elements in his life were leading up to the next chapter in his life, there was one catalyst that sealed the deal.
Apple has a good head start on Android, but Android is catching up fast.Most analysts feel it is inevitable that Android will surpass Android in the next couple of years given the dozens of partners producing the devices, all trying to compete with each other and with Apple in terms of price and features. It has grown up from a tiny little editor generator to a mature language development framework. Starting with a talk from Jeff McAffer (EclipseSource) on OSGi and Eclipse RT technologies. Then, later, when the new TMF Xtext came around they gave it another try and saw that the performance had been improved significantly. But I know enough about chemistry to know that a chemical by itself may be poisonous but not poisonous when in a compound with other chemicals.
But even for non-Xtext enthusiasts there will be nice demos, e.g on SAP's new graphical modeling framework "Graphiti", on developing Android apps with Eclipse and a lot more intriguing topics. Sebastian showed the following slide in his talk:After that he explained how they have solved a couple of other problems, such as supporting different releases of the standard or making the language extendable.
Bauman began regularly attending Hardy's weekly workshops at age 19 and continued coming into the city for Jack's song circle for almost 3 years.
According to Jobs, 300dpi is about the limit that the human retina can distinguish at 10-12 inches away from the eye, so he’s calling this the “retina display”. And even better it seems that they've had as much fun using Xtext as we had and still have when developing (and using) it. Observing that music could be personal, something you could write yourself and tell your own story in ita€¦ that's when it all clicked.
Because the aspect ratio is exactly the same as older iPhones, no change is needed from developers and all old apps run unmodified. I'm not talking about syntax coloring for Vim, but something close to what modern Java IDEs offer.
Along with a bigger battery, the chip provides up to 7 hours talk time, 6 hours 3G browsing, and 300 hours of standby.
We at itemis have already successfully implemented a couple of IDEs for various programming languages.


The new device has a real gyroscope in addition to the accelerometer that is standard now in most smart phones. The camera’s megapixels have been increased to 5, plus they’re using a backside illuminated sensor for higher quality. But you should be aware that the story of Chicken Little is notA  a "fable character." While he did say "The sky is falling" quite a bit, this was only because he had difficulty making contact the his agent provocateur whose actual physical appearance had changed over the years. There’s a camera in the front too (more on that later).To go with the new camera, Apple has written a new app called iMovie for iPhone. It allows you to edit movies with transitions, music, titles, and so forth right on your phone. Formerly called “iPhone OS 4“, the new operating system has a ton of new features including multitasking, unified inbox, conversation threading, and so forth.
The video faculty includes Eric Hulsizer, a former Channel 8 cameramanA who photographed "Channel 8 On Your Side," and Lisa Inserra of Cox Media (the company that owns Valpack) who is active in producing television commercials for her company's clients.az?i»? In my program, I've studied drawing, camera operation, scripting, digital imaging, programming basics, copyright law, video editing, website design, sound production and editing. One of myA professors says the program is the best of its kind in the Tampa Bay area and I think he's right.az?i»?i»? Please, please, put the word out to others so that this fine program will be better known. It doesn't matter what your heritage is or whether you are still in high school or old enough for Medicare. Petersburg Collede digital arts program is filled with both talented professors and students. With the new iAd platform, there’s a standardized, supported platform to create in-app ads that don’t bounce the user out into the browser. Apple sells and hosts the ads, and developers get a 60% cut via iTunes connect (the same way you get paid for your apps).iAds will be enabled July 1st but Apple has been selling spots for 8 weeks. JP Morgan estimated the entire mobile ad market to be worth $250 million this year, so that’s a significant number.Originally Steve said he was going to highlight 8 features, but he couldn’t resist adding “one more thing”…9.
In your story on stadium horns, you called them vuvuzwelas, what is that funny looking symbol after the photo credits.
You can set it up so the other person sees you (via the front camera) or what you’re looking at (via the back camera). It uses other standards like H.264, AAC, SIP, STUN, RTP, SRTP, TURN, and ICE.So how much is all this going to cost you?
The image can be used freely, subject to some restrictive terms in the license, including crediting the photographer. It looks to me like he called on Curtis LeMay, Colonel Clearwater - and then realizing he had made a mistake - schluffed it into Colonel Kilgore. Here's a photo of American school children using the original Bellamy salute:A I think the photo speaks for itself. Colonel Clearwater Dear Colonel Clearwater: What do you think about the Egyptian revolution?
Fundamentalists, in any religion, are usually a reaction to what the followers perceive as injustice. This doesn't mean Egyptian society and culture will necessarily change; it is still their culture and values. But in the long run any thing they make of it will be for their benefit (and not the benefit of the United States). Not by rampeling down the side of the building like Tom Cruise, but by sliding in with a tourist visa when it was not open to tourists.
Clearwater: Republicans are betting that your readers don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out.
So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress.
Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American." And he's not alone.
One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy," while another has said that Americans will turn to "Second Amendment remedies" against Democrats. In New Hampshire, Paul Hodes is running neck-and-neck with his Republican opponent to take this seat for the Democrats.
We've just started to turn our country around, passing healthcare reform, working to hold the big banks accountable for the Wall Street meltdown, pushing legislation to address climate change and end our addiction to oil.
The GOP is betting big that saying "no" and blocking progress is a path to success in November.What bet will you make? I think the Republicans should adopt as their emblem the condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political stance. A condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, Last week, my friend and colleague, Congressman Anthony Weiner, did something very good, and very gutsy. Weiner's report showed that this firm, which sells gold coins, rips off its customers while benefiting directly from Beck's Chicken Little lunacy about the economy. Every time Beck screams that there is an impending Obama-led government takeover of the economy and your savings aren't safe, he's making a sales pitch for this sleazy advertiser. You see, Beck's ratings have recently crashed, and most of his reputable advertisers have deserted him. Now that he's been exposed, Beck has spent the last week using his big media platform to attack and undermine Weiner - he even set up an attack website designed to damage Weiner's political standing. This collusion between big media, conservative commentators, and quack economics is a scam, but it is powerful if it remains unopposed. And we need to support people like Weiner, who have the guts to go after right-wing lunacy at the source. Consider his statement: "I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. That oil disaster must be stopped, and a way must be found."I am not the original author of that sensible thought, but it has been my favorite definition of faith for a while. While we have no way of certainty for moving past them, working to find a pathway that takes us beyond our doubts is the best option in my view. Then how come Congress starts each session with a prayer and the president is sworn in on a Bible? Wants to KnowDear Wants to Know, As I said in an earlier reply, our countrys laws and structure are not based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments, as Sarah Palin and others claim. So most of us do not work on Sunday and some businesses are not open for business on Sunday. So we have a religious custom of not working on Sunday and a secular custom of watching football on Sunday.
The Constitution states that the president must take an oath, but it does not mention anything about a Bible. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I understand you answer, but you say customs and traditions. Wants to Know MoreDear Wants to Know More, It is important to realize the difference between a custom and a tradition.
It is a custom at my house that every year we watch football on Thanksgiving Day after we eat. A tradition is a ceremony invented for the purpose of commemorating some historical event or to develop a sense of binding in a community or religious group.
Thanksgiving Day is a tradition in America that serves the purpose of reminding us of what we have from God for which to be thankful and is loosely based on the first harvest feast of the Pilgrims to celebrate their first year of survival in the New World. It is a tradition; a ceremony we use to create a common bond among Americans by commemorating our heritage.
When Congress meets, the first thing that happens is that the designated speaker calls the group together. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I have just seen a video about an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations. This organization has members who were past Presidents and past Secretary of States of the United States, plus leaders in the fields of finance, industry, and other important positions in society.
The spokesman on the video has concluded that this organization must be a part of world conspiracy to take over the world and put the entire world under a one-world socialist government and I agree with him.
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an organization of foreign policy experts, people concerned with international trade, prominent historians and writers, as well as others who are involved with foreign policy and international affairs. The CFR hold speaking events with question-and-answer periods which are usually televised on CSpan or other cable stations.
The speakers are usually world leaders, historians, writers, or others involved in international affairs. Some of the speakers have included such figures as Nelson Mandela, George Soros, Thomas Friedman, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Ronald Reagan. The journal, which I have subscribed to and read for over 25 years (plus you can buy it at the newsstands in Borders or Barnes and Noble) provides a forum for contrasting views and opinions regarding issues affecting foreign policy.
Some people have made a nice living scarring others with conspiracy theories about the CFR. My advice to you is to go to the store, buy and read their journal, watch their events on CSpan, and be wary of people who wish to sell you on the idea that other people are out to get you.
Colonel Clearwater________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dear Colonel Clearwater: Cancel my subscription to your liberal rage. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this earth." Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1984 Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater: Liberals? I realize that there is collateral damage in war, but this is no less than cold-blooded genocide.
They were shooting at insurgents who, upon later investigation, turned out to be civilians.
By saying the soldiers were shooting civilans implies that they knew they were shooting civiliansj. The real guilty party are those who convinced the American public that this war was necessary and just. Can you tell me how the "Smallest of the World's Leading Newspapers" managed to scoop "Florida's Best Newspaper?" Pedro TechadorDear Pedro, Always nice to hear from one of the Techadors.This was a WikiLeak scoop. Palin:Your statement reminds me of what Republican Congressman, Devin Nunes said during the health care vote. And now you are bringing the ghosts back into this chamber." There is no polite way to get around this. Tea Party Patriots are morons when it comes to history, economics, and how to run a society.
Much like the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan after World War I, the Tea Party Patriots are people who believe they have lost their privileged status in American society and wish to thwart others hopes for the American dream. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on which editor yells loudest) President Obama considers Wall Street, the banks, the Republicans in congress, and those with tea party policies as necessary players in the solution when they are, in fact, part of the problem.
Both the Senior Citizens' Right to Work Act and the Family Medical Leave Act were passed this way.
