How About Orange Guys, this looks awesome. Have you ever wished you could sell the amazing t-shirt you designed, or the digital magazine you made, or the six tote bags you sewed in a frenzy one night? And you wished you could do it right from Facebook or your blog, so you don't have to set up an entire e-commerce store for a single product? I just learned about ShopLocket, a widget you can embed directly on your blog, website, or Facebook page to sell your product. Business plan StartMyStory MyLife Five Classic Ways to Boost Your Note-Taking - Note-taking - Lifehacker Glad to see the Cornell Method here. I use it and love it. I would not skip on the summary at the bottom. There are templates out there for the Cornell Method but a strait-edge and a pencil will do the job nicely. And as far as going visual. I found the only thing that anyone really cared about, as far as what other students were doing, is the guy who though he knew more than the prof and questioned everything that was said.
HWTrek - a unique home for connecting hardware enthusiasts around the world Writing Good Qualitative Research Questions | Mass Communication Theory Got a great handout a while back that I stumbled over today, hopefully it’s as helpful to you as it was to me.

MoovJee The magic button — Make Everything OK Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management: www.mrsbeeton.com – Cookery, Recipies & Household Management Construct 2 - the HTML5 game I’ve been experimenting with Construct 2 from Scirra the last few days. Construct 2 is a program from creating HTML 5 games. What really got my interest was that there is the ability to create Windows 8 games using Construct 2 with Visual Studio 12. The Construct 2 development environment is pretty easy to use and I find that some similarities to Visual Studio (among other tools) is helpful in finding ones way around it. The image below shows the layout of graphical objects on the screen as well as the properties box, list of images and outline of the project. The coding involves what is called an event sheet. I really like that for a single event you can easily specify different actions for different objects in the game. Programs/games are created in the Construct 2 IDE and tested in a web browser. My next step is to outline the things you’ll want to include in a game that you make with Construct 2 in order to make it fit the guidelines for inclusion in the Windows Marketplace.
