Getting the Hang of GitHub A project is always more fun when you've got friends working with you, but how can do it when working on a coding project? I'll keep my keyboard to myself, thanks. Enter GitHub. With this web service, you can share your coding projects and collaborate with ease! Suspended animation Suspended animation is the slowing of life processes by external means without termination. Breathing, heartbeat, and other involuntary functions may still occur, but they can only be detected by artificial means. Extreme cold can be used to precipitate the slowing of an individual's functions; use of this process has led to the developing science of cryonics. Cryonics is another method of life preservation but it cryopreserves organisms using liquid nitrogen that will preserve the organism until reanimation. Two-celled embryos have been kept in suspended animation for as long as 13 years. Placing astronauts in suspended animation has been proposed as one way for an individual to reach the end of an interstellar or intergalactic journey, avoiding the necessity for a gigantic generation ship; occasionally the two concepts have been combined, with generations of "caretakers" supervising a large population of frozen passengers.
Designers: Learn To Code! Here's How To Start A friend, formerly a competitive fighter, once asked me: "Have you ever been punched in the face?" He and I were about to get in a bar fight.

But once you’ve been punched in the face, you realize it’s not so bad—it’s easy to fling yourself into a fight without hesitating. Similarly, learning how to code can be intimidating if you’ve never done it before.
