In 2010 one of the ed tech developments that I was most excited about was the Android App Inventor platform that Google had released to the public. The App Inventor allowed anyone to build his or her own Android app even if they couldn’t write a single line of code. Then sadly in 2011 Google shut-down support for the App Inventor and released the code into the wild. MIT has taken that code and now made the App Inventor available to the public.
Facebook has taken a stand against what it calls a "distressing increase" in reports of employers demanding the Facebook passwords of employees and job applicants. One such report came from the Associated Press this week, which detailed cases of interviewers asking applicants for Facebook usernames and passwords, a clear invasion of privacy if we've ever heard of one. Employers examining applicants' and employees' activity on social media networks isn't new—but typically it is restricted to what information users have made publicly available to everyone. Facebook said it could seek policy changes or file lawsuits to prevent employers from demanding passwords. While Facebook is often criticized for privacy violations of its own, this time it's fighting on behalf of its users.

Grunge fonts are a great way to add style and character to your design. If your website looks painfully ordinary, it may be due to the use of typical, tired web fonts that are employed on millions of websites, including your own. An edgy grunge font may be all that you need to achieve the style and appeal that you’re seeking. “Grunge” is a broad category that can include a surprising degree of variation. A font in the grunge category could be a horror font, a script font, a graphic font, or an unorthodox font that stands apart from any common category. The term “grunge” applies to any design that includes more “realistic” elements.
From Hakipedia SQL Injection is one of the more popular application layer hacking techniques that is used in the wild today. It is a trick that exploits poorly filtered or not correctly escaped SQL queries into parsing variable data from user input. The idea behind SQL injection is to convince the SQL application (whether MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, ORACLE etc) to run an SQL string that was not premeditated. [ edit ] Severity Relatively High

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to create a text effect with gooey splatters in Photoshop. This tutorial should take about one to one and a half hours to complete if you’re already somewhat familiar with Photoshop. This effect would be perfect for citrus or candy ad or poster. Preview Here’s a look at the end result of what you’ll be putting together today:
Written by Steve Patterson. Back in Photoshop CS3, Adobe introduced the Black & White image adjustment , which finally gave us an easy and natural way to convert color photos to black and white. Yet just because something was built for a specific purpose doesn’t mean we can’t find other uses for it as well, which is exactly what we’re going to do in this tutorial. Rather than using the Black & White adjustment to remove the color from a photo, we’ll learn how it can also be used, when combined with one of Photoshop’s layer blend modes, to quickly and easily make custom brightness and contrast adjustments to a full color image! I’ll be using Photoshop CS5 for this tutorial.
Blix may be a mod of Kubrick, but in a whole lot of ways it's become a completely different animal. Besides adding get_sidebar() to your page.php, you also need to edit the following line in header.php: <body><div id="container"<?php if (is_page() && !is_page("archives")) echo " class="singlecol""; ?>>
Not long ago, I advertised for perverse rules of grammar, along the lines of "Remember to never split an infinitive" and "The passive voice should never be used." The notion of making a mistake while laying down rules ("Thimk," "We Never Make Misteaks") is highly unoriginal, and it turns out that English teachers have been circulating lists of fumblerules for years. As owner of the world's largest collection, and with thanks to scores of readers, let me pass along a bunch of these never-say-neverisms:
Late-1979, New York Times columnist William Safire compiled a list of " Fumblerules of Grammar " — rules of writing, all of which are humorously self-contradictory — and published them in his popular column, " On Language ." Those 36 fumblerules can be seen below, along with another 18 that later featured in Safire's book, Fumblerules: A Lighthearted Guide to Grammar and Good Usage . Trivia: Safire previously worked as a speechwriter and was, in 1969, responsible for penning Nixon's thankfully unused and incredibly chilling, " IN EVENT OF MOON DISASTER " speech. ( Source: Maximum Awesome ; Image: William Safire in 1968, courtesy of NYTimes . ) Remember to never split an infinitive. A preposition is something never to end a sentence with.
