Must Have’s For an Entrepreneur 2: Interest In and Ability to Learn Other Things

By other things is meant subjects other than what one has learned in schools or colleges or what has been prescribed.
We are always learning. Right from our first to the last breath. Only a part of our learning is formal. Most of our learning is informal – taught by parents, siblings, friends, learned by self-studies, accidental or unintentional learning through chance meetings, unintentional reading and so on and on. All this learning enriches our life. Much of it is also used directly or indirectly to earn our living.
When it comes to learning, people vary widely in their ability to learn as well as heir preferred ways of learning. Some people are extremely focussed. They like to take up a subject and study it to its maximum depth. Such people are scholars and researchers. Their lives are dedicated to deeper and deeper studies in their chosen fields. Scientists are …

Web Hub For Software And Web Technology

My first reaction upon hearing about Nokia’s 41-megapixel 808 Pureview was that it was an absurdity, a perfect example of the very worst of consumer electronics, and a total miss. But the more I read, the better I understood that this phone isn’t just some freak of nature with a ridiculously high number attached to it. It’s just the slightly awkward first steps of a serious move by Nokia to differentiate itself. If you’ve only skimmed the news, there are some things you should probably know about this strange beast of a camera.
First, the 41 megapixel figure is really misrepresentative, not to say untrue. It doesn’t take 41-megapixel photos in any way, shape, or form. Even in the special high-res creative mode, it “only” produces 38 megapixels. Mostly it will be taking normal-size shots, between 3 and 8 megapixels. So what the hell does this 41 megapixel figure even …

Rules of Texas Hold’em

Texas Hold’em is a very famous format of poker. If you are a beginner and want to play Texas Hold’em poker, then you have to know the rules first. The systematic rules of Texas Hold’em are here as follows:
1. First, the dealer shuffles a full deck of card (52 cards) and deals every player 2 cards each. The rest of the deck is kept unchanged.
2. The player sitting left to the dealer pays small blind and the player left to the small blind pays big blind.
3. The player sitting left to the big blind starts the game. He has three options now: Bet, Fold and Raise. Thus begins the first round that is called as “Pre-flop Round”.
4. If there is more than one player left on the table after the first betting round ends, the dealer puts a card apart faced down which is called as …

Will EBooks Replace the Paper Originals?

Just yesterday, on July 20, Amazon announced that the sale of ebooks had even surpassed the sale of hardcover books. For every 100 hardcover books sold, Amazon sold around 180 ebooks during the past month. It seems everything is going electronic these days. Newspapers, snail mail, research; staples of everyday recent life have all been taken over by more efficient, electronic versions provided through the internet. Furthermore, the electronic industry seems to be poised to pounce on the book market and make paper books an obsolete thing of the past; but will they succeed?
Well, yes and no.
When introduced to the concept of ebooks, the general public felt ambivalent about the prospect of this new advent. An eBook just felt out of place and far less superior than normal paper books. Constantly looking at the screen strained the eyes and the text often appeared difficult to read. The general …

Ideas for Jazzing Up a Dull Classroom

Classrooms tend not to be the most inspiring of environments in which to teach and learn. Often, they’re aged and fitted with ugly-looking furniture that looks like a relic of the dark ages with an extra bit of graffiti scribbled all over and dried chewing gum stuck in strategic places. While modern classrooms may be cleaner and boast more ergonomic and aesthetic furniture, they can be overly sterile.
To transform a dull classroom into an inspiring, nurturing environment, put your creativity to the test. Changes don’t need to cost the earth but will make kids and teachers much happier to spend time cooped up indoors.
If you’re not an arts and crafts teacher yourself, strike up a conversation with your colleague at lunchtime. Perhaps the kids’ next project in art class could be to brighten up their classroom? They could create paintings, murals, collages, or bring a bit of nature …
