Millennials in Adulthood

Education: The Rising Cost of Not Going to College. For those who question the value of college in this era of soaring student debt and high unemployment, the attitudes and experiences of today’s young adults—members of the so-called Millennial generation—provide a compelling answer.

Education: The Rising Cost of Not Going to College

On virtually every measure of economic well-being and career attainment—from personal earnings to job satisfaction to the share employed full time—young college graduates are outperforming their peers with less education. And when today’s young adults are compared with previous generations, the disparity in economic outcomes between college graduates and those with a high school diploma or less formal schooling has never been greater in the modern era. These assessments are based on findings from a new nationally representative Pew Research Center survey of 2,002 adults supplemented by a Pew Research analysis of economic data from the U.S.

Census Bureau. Lecture 01 - The Learning Problem. Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide. In a second dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia mocked the soaring language of Justice Kennedy, who has become the nation’s most important judicial champion of gay rights.

Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide

“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” Justice Scalia wrote of his colleague’s work. “Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.” As Justice Kennedy finished announcing his opinion from the bench on Friday, several lawyers seated in the bar section of the court’s gallery wiped away tears, while others grinned and exchanged embraces. Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired in 2010, was on hand for the decision, and many of the justices’ clerks took seats in the chamber, which was nearly full as the ruling was announced. The decision made same-sex marriage a reality in the 13 states that had continued to ban it.

Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Mastering Facial Expressions. To anyone whose illustration work includes characters, facial expressions are like this computer monitor: if it doesn't work right, then all the brilliant engineering that went into building the hard drive is wasted.

Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Mastering Facial Expressions

The human face ranks at the very top of the hierarchy of things the eye is immediately drawn to: if a face is visible in a given composition, the very first thing we look at is its expression. The body expresses action, but the face is a window into someone's inner life, and the expression of this inner life in a character makes all the difference between a skilled, observant artist (or writer) and a wooden one. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: How to Draw Hands. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: How to Draw Feet - Tuts+ Design & Illustration Tutorial. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Drawing Different Ages. Throughout these lessons I have touched upon how age changes things in the body and particularly in the face.

Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Drawing Different Ages

Here we will look at the full progression of the body and face from birth to very old age. Let's get this clear: Everyone ages differently. The diagrams below are not meant to be invariably true to the letter, but to help you draw people that look their intended age. I know for myself that while I was learning to draw, I ended up with many children who looked eerily world-weary, or adults stuck in their twenties, before I identified the visual clues of age that I was misusing. They are collected here to save you much trial and error, but you will not need to use them all – as a matter of fact, unless your style is very realistic, you might want to use the fewest possible, just what is enough to make a character's age clear.

As I said above, we all age differently. You’ll notice I only provide separate male and female diagrams for some age categories. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Additional Tips - Tuts+ Design & Illustration Tutorial. In this penultimate Human Anatomy lesson, we'll look at some things that didn't fit into the main lessons but are very useful to know.

Below you can see how the muscle lines joining the arm to the torso look when the arm is in different positions. They are the same with females, where the pectoral line simply flows into the outline of the breast. The underarm line always tucks in under the pectoral line, but is in front of the back line if that is visible.The trapezius line goes behind both the neck and the deltoid line.When the arm is held out, the biceps line is entirely in front, overriding both deltoid and forearm. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Drawing Characters Consistently. Human Anatomy Fundamentals: Advanced Facial Features.

In our last lesson we covered the basic, undifferentiated proportions of the face and shapes of its features. Now we look at how to make it unique: characteristics of gender, age, ethnic origin and other random genetic diversity. As is the case with the rest of the body, male and female faces vary from the extreme characteristics of their gender, to androgynous ambiguity. Eurasians more attractive than ugly Caucasians, not average Caucasians: a reply to Gillian Rhodes. Recently, John Jay Ray posted part of a media report on a study alleging greater attractiveness ratings of Eurasian faces compared to Caucasian and Asian faces. Surprisingly, John did not comment on the methodology used in the study, but its ridiculous absurdity needs to be exposed.

The study consisted of three experiments. 2 Hours of Celtic Music. Why is Play Framework so fast? Anyone who has worked with Play Framework will tell you that it's fast. Play, which was recently ranked in a RebelLabs report as the 6th most-used web framework among Java developers, does all it can to wring every last drop of performance out of the JVM. The big question is how, and why, is Play able to be so fast? The short answer: Play is a stateless, asynchronous, and non-blocking framework that uses an underlying fork-join thread pool to do work stealing for network operations, and can leverage Akka for user level operations.

While this is accurate, it's not especially helpful to non-experts. So let's break it down and explain why Play is designed the way it is, and how those decisions make Play fast.

A function is a way of matching the members of a set "A" to a set "B": A General Function points from each member of "A" to a member of "B".

A function never has one "A" pointing to more than one "B", so one-to-many is not OK in a function (so something like "f(x) = 7 or 9" is not allowed) 12 Women With Perfect Responses for Why They Don't Have Kids.
