Humble Beginnings in Web Development - Advice for Newbies Gnomie Tom “Mousey” Lovelady writes: Hey there Chris, I’m attempting to delve into the world of coding and Web development in order to successfully begin creating applications for mobile devices as well as for Web sites; I hope at some point to be able to integrate the two.

Virtue Ethics 1. Preliminaries Virtue ethics' founding fathers are Plato and, more particularly Aristotle (its roots in Chinese philosophy are even more ancient) and it persisted as the dominant approach in Western moral philosophy until at least the Enlightenment. It suffered a momentary eclipse during the nineteenth century but re-emerged in the late 1950's in Anglo-American philosophy.

Bing Strips Down Results Page To Make Google Look Like “Search Overload” While Google keeps cramming its search results pages full of tools and social content, today Bing confirmed with me the full roll out a redesigned search results page that completely clears the left sidebar, and replaces the tabbed header with a cleaner set of links. Bing’s Facebook integration is also more subtle now, instead of plastering names and faces beneath Liked results. This more relaxing, dare I say zen, design gives Google a more claustrophobic and exhausting feel by comparison. Microsoft seems to have realized that if it can’t match Google’s algorithmic prowess, it could win with sleek design that doesn’t bombard you with a thousand options. Bing has been testing several of these changes for a few months.
