Outsourcing Software Development reduces your IT cost.

Depending on your project scope, your vision and budget, you can hire development teams that are either new or experienced, within or outside your company or country. If you have a long term business plan and want to develop software in stages to achieve a bigger goal, AWATASoftSys would like to be your software development firm.

Hurdles in outsourcing software development

When you outsource software development work to us or to any one, we advice you to be aware of the following. These are important so the development goes on schedule and longterm business relationships are good.

Be clear with the software requirements. Since the software is going to be your product, we assume, you know what all functions it should have. These should be recorded in all possible detail. This will help both of us make a realistic effort and price estimate. It is necessary to have a long term vision becasue changes to initial assumptions can become costly if not taken into consideration at the initial stages.

As the owner of a software, understand how the intended audience will use the software. What will be his input? What will he expect as response? To make the software friendly to use, how can we make the navigation intutive? To a certain extent, being your software development partner, AWATASoftSys team will discuss and help finalize navigation changes.

To help you freeze the requirements, when you outsource software development work to us, we assign a project manager or technology lead to work with you. Our manager will spend considerable amount of time discussing the feature and possible extensions of all functionalities so that the changes required in the future versions can be accommodated with ease into the system or database. This will help in long term support of the software and reduce downtime. With this in mind, we will help you prepare a realistic time schedule based on our strength, your budget and your business plan.

As a software development company, we work with clients abroad in different timezones. The clients do not see us face-to-face. So it is very important for us to communicate clearly with our clients and expect the same from them. We achieve that via emails and pre-scheduled conference calls.

Proactive spam protection in backend with API

There is an addtional option to add proactive spam protection in backend with API for magento.You can choose not have the conventional captcha image and only have the invisible spam protection with this API.You need to register(its free ) in and get their credentials to use this feature.My Personal suggestion is to use both image captcha (good for blocking bot posts) and botscout protection(for blocking human spam posts to an extend).

Custom modules will not work properly in magento without following naming conventions properly

Uneven Breast Size and Breast Development #breast #asymmetry #unequal #size, #lopsided #breasts,


Breast Asymmetry – When Does It Need Treatment?

Frederick R. Jelovsek MD

“I am 21 years old and for the past several years I noticed my left breast was somewhat larger but nothing to worry about. Now my breast is much larger and it hangs lower. The nipple feels different. It is quite uncomfortable. Anyway, do you think this could somehow catch up with the other breast? “.

What Does It Mean If You Have”>Different Size Breasts

The right versus the left breast of any woman is very often of different size and even a different shape. Although common, these differences are perceptible but not very great. If it is a newly noticed size difference, the first question that should be asked is whether or not there is any solid or cystic growth in one breast that is making it larger than the other. Therefore be sure to visit the doctor, if you haven’t already, to be sure that there are no breast masses causing the discrepancy in size.

The three major determinants of breast appearance are size, shape of the individual breast and the position of the breast and nipple when standing in an upright position.

If surgical correction is undertaken with cosmetic surgery, the best success is obtained with correction of size alone. If both size and shape are different, the surgical results are not as good because each breast requires a different surgical procedure.

What causes a difference in the sizes of the breasts in a person?

Most doctors assume that breast size differences are either genetic tendencies or random events in which paired organs like the breasts just grow differentially with respect to starting and stopping.

The breasts are stimulated to grow under the influence of estrogen hormone in young girls. It begins with breast budding and about two years after that the first menstrual period occurs. The breast continues to grow for about 2-4 more years and it is during that time that there can be differences in size.

Catchup growth does take place but if you are now 21 years old and breast development has gone on more than about 6 years, then it is unlikely to change now until pregnancy or menopause. Those are the other two events that can change size and shape of the breasts.

Table of Contents

My breasts have two different sizes and I keep using Boobpop tool for almost three months and now they are almost the same size. I will keep using it to enlarge my breasts more!

My left breast is about B cup size and my right is probably an A cup size. My breasts are different shape too. I finally found the bra that I can wear and that doesn\’t show the different. Maybe you heard of it before. Its MySuperBra and they sell it online. Its made for uneven breasts, and it does the work. I like that I can adjust it and position my breasts as I wish.

I am 23 year old.i notice that my breast is not equal to other one is big and other small. This problem is suffering from my starting age. Please tell me immediately because I am very worried about this problem. Please please please.

i m 23 year old.i noticed my left breasts is larger than right and loose compare to right breasts. so what should i do?please give the response as soon as possible

What Is Cloud Computing? Explained In Simple Words #beginners,cloud,cloud #computing,explanation,guide,hosting,online #apps,online #storage,server,simple,tutorial,web


I m sure you ve heard the following two words being used extensively online in the last couple of years. Cloud Computing. The next time you read something about a service that mentions Cloud , you will immediately know what they mean by that, and what exactly cloud computing is and how does it work.

What is Cloud Computing and how does it work, explained in simple terms?

Actually, you ve been using cloud computing all this time, unless you were living in a cave somewhere, and that cave somehow didn t have an internet connection.

So let me put this in as simple terms as possible:
Cloud Computing is the ability to use the power of other computers (located somewhere else) and their software, via the Internet (or sometimes other networks), without the need to own them. They are being provided to you, as a service .

That means you don t have to go and buy some super powerful gigantic computer system and risk have it sitting there, doing nothing. By utilizing the cloud, everything is ready for you whenever you might need it. Exactly where the hardware and software is located and how it all works doesn t matter to you, as a user. It s just somewhere up in the vast cloud that the Internet represents.
Now you know one of the reasons they call it the Cloud Computing.

For example, many businesses use cloud computing as a means of remote backup solutions to store and recover their data offsite.

To illustrate the point even better, let s go over one typical example of cloud computing that you must have used before (exception are those with the cave thing from above).

Google as an example of cloud computing

What happens when you type and search something on Google?
Have you ever thought about this? Does your PC go through all that information, sorts it out for you and display all the relevant results? No, it doesn t. Otherwise, you would wait much longer for a simple results page to display. A simple PC can t process all those billions of websites in a fraction of a second, like Google does. Your PC only serves as a messenger to tell Google what you are looking for. Everything else is done by some of Google s powerful computers located somewhere, Who-Knows-Where in the world.
Now, did you ever care about how or where that comes from? Why would you, right? Exactly. That s a great example of how cloud computing is used.

At this point, I m sure you understand what cloud computing is and the basic idea behind it. If that s everything you wanted to know, you can stop here, and go enjoy your life knowing what Cloud Computing is. If you are interested in just a little tiny bit more about it, continue reading to the end (not long from here).

3 Types of Cloud Computing

1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is basically when you buy raw computing hardware to use over the net, usually servers, or online storage. You buy what you need and pay-as-you-go. The best and the most basic example of this type of cloud computing is buying a web hosting for your website. You pay monthly fee to a hosting company for the storage on their servers and to have them serve up files for your website from those servers. Another good example of someone who provides these types of cloud services would be RackSpace cloud company .

2. Software as a Service (SaaS) is a case where you use the complete software application that s running on someone else s servers. The best example of this is Google Docs. which you can use for creating and storing text documents, presentations, spreadsheets and so on

3. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is case where you create applications using web-based tools so they run on systems software and hardware provided by another company. As an example, consider a situation where you develop your own e-commerce website but have the whole thing, including the shopping cart, checkout, and payment mechanism running on a merchant s server.

That should be all you need to know to get you started.

As you can see, the idea behind cloud computing is very powerful and useful beyond measure. Especially now when you actually know what it is.

Why .NET Core Made C# Your Next Programming Language to Learn

Why .NET Core Made C# Your Next Programming Language to Learn

Get Your Apps to Customers 5X Faster with RAD Studio

For years I have read about polyglot programmers and how some new language was the new cool thing. Over time, it has been programming languages like Ruby, Python, Scala, Go, Node.js, Swift, and others. It is amazing to see what Microsoft, and the community, have done with .NET Core and how it has become the cool new thing.

The problem with many of the existing programming languages is they are good at one use case. Ruby and PHP are awesome for web applications. Swift or Objective-C are great for creating iOS or MacOS applications. If you wanted to write a background service you could use Python, Java, or other languages. Besides C#, JavaScript and Java may be the only languages that can be applied to a wide set of use cases.

It is hard for me to apply my skills to a broad set of problems if I have to learn many programming languages. It limits my job opportunities. The awesome thing about C# is the wide versatility of it that can be used for a wide variety of types of applications. Now with .NET Core working on MacOS and Linux, there truly is no limit to what you can do. We will explore this in more detail below.

Why C# and .NET Core Are the Next Big Thing

I have been playing with .NET Core for over a year now and have been very impressed with it. I have even ported a .NET app over to run on a Mac, which was pretty amazing to see in action after all these years!

Since our company creates developer tools that also work with .NET Core, I feel like we are more plugged in to what is going on. It feels like .NET Core is picking up steam fast and I predict there will be a huge demand for .NET Core developers in 2018. We talk to customers every day who are already running .NET Core apps in production.

According to the TIOBE programming index. C# is already one of the top 5 programming languages.

Top 6 Things to Know About C# and .NET Core

If you are thinking about learning a new programming language, I want to provide you some of my insights as to why C# and .NET Core should be on the top of your list.

Easy to Learn

If you have done any programming in C, Java, or even JavaScript, the syntax of C# will feel very familiar to you. The syntax is simple to understand and read. Based on the TIOBE index I posted above, there are millions of developers who could easily make the switch from Java or C.

There are lots of online resources to help you learn C#. Many are free and there are some that are low cost as well.

Modern Language Features

NET has been around a long time now and has steadily changed and improved over 15 years. Over the years I have seen awesome improvements like MVC, generics, LINQ, async/await, and more. As someone who has personally dedicated myself to the language, it is awesome to see it improve over time. With .NET Core, a lot has changed, including all of the ASP.NET stack being completely overhauled.

Here are some the top features:

  • Strongly typed.
  • Robust base class libraries.
  • Asynchronous programming – easy to use async/await pattern.
  • Garbage collection, automatic memory management.
  • LINQ – Language Integrated Queries.
  • Generics – List T , Dictionary T, T .
  • Package management.
  • The ability to share binaries across multiple platforms and frameworks.
  • Easy to use frameworks to create MVC web apps and RESTful APIs.

Versatility: Web, Mobile, Server, Desktop

One of the best things about C# and .NET is the versatility of it. I can write desktop apps, web applications, background services, and even mobile apps thanks to Xamarin. Besides C#, all I really have to know is a little JavaScript (aided by TypeScript) to hack some UI code together (which I still try to avoid!). ASP.NET Core templates even make use of Bootstrap layouts and npm for pulling in client-side libraries.

The versatility is a big deal because your investment in learning the language can be used for a wide array of things. Your skillset is highly portable. You can also jump from building web apps to mobile apps if you want to mix up what you are doing. This is a stark difference to most other programming languages that only work server side.

And let’s not forget the first class support for Microsoft Azure. It’s never been easier to get up and running and then deployed to the cloud in just a few clicks. Docker containers are also supported which makes it easy to deploy your app to AWS or other hosting providers as well.

Awesome Developer Tools

Visual Studio has always been regarded as one of the best IDEs available for developers. It is a great code editor that supports features like code completion, debugging, profiling, git integration, unit testing, and much more. Visual Studio now offers a full-featured, free Community edition.

It is also possible to write code for .NET Core as basic text files with your favorite text editor. You can also use Visual Studio Code on any OS as a great basic code editor. For those of you who will never give up your vim or emacs, you can even do C# development too. You could also install a plug-in for Visual Studio to add all of your favorite shortcut keys.

The whole .NET ecosystem is also full of amazing developer tools. For example, I couldn’t imagine living without Resharper from Jetbrains. There are dozens of awesome tools that exist, including a mixture of open source and commercial products.

Standardization of Skills

NET comes with a very good set of base class libraries. Unlike Node.js, simple string functions like LeftPad() are built in. The wide array of base classes really decreases the need for external packages. Microsoft does lean on some community projects as well, like JSON.NET, to be key libraries widely used in most projects.

Microsoft provides a very good set of patterns and practices for .NET. For example, there are standard data access (entity framework) and model-view-controller (MVC) frameworks built-in. Most developers use those standard frameworks. This makes it easy as a developer to move between teams and quickly understand how things work. Your knowledge and skills become more portable due to this.

.NET Core Is Open Source

One of the biggest changes to ever happen to .NET was the open sourcing of the code. Virtually all of the code is now on GitHub for anyone to review, fork, and contribute to. This is a huge change that most people in the industry never thought would happen.

As a developer, from time to time you need to look under the covers to see what your code is really doing. For example, in the past, I once wondered if I called Dispose() on a database connection if that closes the connection or not. If you can access the source code somehow, you can quickly verify these types of questions.

Even if you don’t contribute to the source code, you benefit from the huge community that is. Problems and improvements are quickly discussed, coded, and released for you to use on a regular basis. Gone are the days of waiting years in-between releases for major improvements or minor bug fixes.

    SharePoint Application Development: An Overview #sharepoint #application #development


    SharePoint Application Development: An Overview

    What is SharePoint Application Development?

    SharePoint, the web-based collaboration and document management platform from the Microsoft stable, is a popular option for enterprises to develop apps. The platform offers many plus points, foremost among which are seamless integration with Microsoft Office and easy reconfigurability.
    Here is a run-down on how to develop an app using SharePoint, and the distinct advantages of doing it this way.

    Deploy a SharePoint Server

    The prerequisite to developing applications using SharePoint is access to a SharePoint server.
    SharePoint Server comes in two editions: Standard and Enterprise. A free Foundation version was discontinued in 2016. Regardless of the choice, users install the Standard Edition upfront, for the Enterprise edition is built on the standard edition, unlocked by means of entering a license key on the standard edition.

    The standard edition comes with several handy and intuitive features, such as pre-built workflow templates, secure store service, web analytics, governance tools, audience targeting capabilities, enterprise wikis, search customization abilities, mobile search capabilities, faceted search, and much more.

    The additional features available in the Enterprise edition include:

    • Better search results from rich web indexing
    • Better search interface, with search thumbnails and previews
    • Deeper integration of business intelligence, through the use of intuitive dashboards, and business data surfacing.
    • Integration of PowerPiviot, PerformancePoint, Microsoft Office Access, Visio, Excel, and InfoPath Forms services, and more.

    Deploying Microsoft Office SharePoint Server within the enterprise, provisioned as normal virtual or cloud servers, or as a hosted service, delivers greater control over SharePoint s behavior or design.

    Set the Template or Site Definition

    Having secured access to a server, create the core site in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Office SharePoint Server 2007.

    SharePoint Services 3.0 offers several out-of-the-box templates to create new sites, and in fact, creates the site with a default template. Users have the option of creating their own templates and building a new site instance based on such custom templates. Or else, users may simply use a blank site template and get the work done.

    Make the Required Modifications

    After sorting out the template, use the Office SharePoint Designer to create the necessary lists and user groups. The four essential lists are Projects List, Project Tasks, Project Issues, and Project Milestones. Create custom columns for each of those lists. Make sure to define user rights for the created lists, to ensure only authorized users to have access to sensitive information that comes in when the site goes operational.

    Next, add the required components, such as wikis, blogs, calendars, and more, and configure it as required.

    Determine the extent of customizations needed in terms of workflows, dashboard and manager views, parent-child relationships, custom forms, the action flows, and more. The web-site interface is fully customizable, with developers having a wide discretion to implement a design of their choice. Use the Windows SharePoint Services UI to sort and filter the preferences, and create custom views within lists. Custom list views enable displaying data in different ways. Custom forms allow capturing user input in different ways, as required. Developing custom forms are always a better option than the default edit form which comes with each list.

    Finally, add application logic as required, by building workflows. Workflows make it possible to attach a business process to items in lists and libraries, making it easy to control almost any aspect of an item. It simplifies otherwise complicated programming tasks on the server. For example, routing a document through a series of users, for approval, is possible by creating a simple workflow.

    Office SharePoint Designer 2007 offers a powerful rules-based design tool for customizing and adding conditional logic around out-of-the-box workflows, without having to write code. Visual Studio 2005, used along with Visual Studio 2005 Extensions for Windows Workflow Foundation allow creating more complex and customized workflows, using code.

    Having created pages corresponding to the required roles, use an XSL template to create a link to the correct dashboard for the current user based on their role.

    Intuitive Tools Further Aid the Development Process

    SharePoint offers several intuitive tools and resources that further ease and speed up the application development process.
    Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 introduces a number of new libraries and list types.

    Content types, or a reusable collection of settings, help users organize content in a meaningful way. Users may leverage content types to manage and reuse the metadata and behaviors of a document or item type, centrally.
    Site columns offer a central, reusable model for column definition. Each list using a site column gets the same definition, sparing the need to reproduce the column in each list.

    Feature Framework, a new structure in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 packages pre-set elements to help a user accomplish a particular goal or task.
    Use Visual Studio 2005, if necessary, to create additional custom code, and custom workflows.

    How Opting for SharePoint Benefits the Enterprise

    SharePoint is by no means the only way to develop enterprise apps. However, opting for SharePoint offers some distinct advantages for the enterprise:
    Development is easy. Enterprises can deploy apps on the fly, and get full functionality of the portal right after installation, sparing them taking the focus off their core business activities for what is essentially a staff function.

    The easy to use collaborative tools offer unmatched flexibility and scalability, and the ability to effect deep personalization. It is possible to add and remove web components from the mix, in a modular approach.
    SharePoint also scores on simplicity. Securing business information, and integrating with Microsoft documents a seamless process.

    With SharePoint, users gain access to a large swathe of improvements, enhanced components, and accessories, adding critical functionality for the business to soar greater height. The development process simplifies complexity and accelerates the development timeline. However, it still requires a competent and experienced team to execute the development process, leveraging the full set of features and functionality on offer.

    Degree Programs at MCCC #mercer #county #community #college, #mccc, #programs, #degree #programs,


    Visual Arts
    concentrations: Art History, Ceramics/Sculpture, Fine Arts

    * State approval pending
    1 offered with Camden County College
    2 offered with Mercer County Technical Schools
    3 offered with Rider University
    4 A.S. degree awarded by MCCC; Diploma awarded by St. Francis Medical Center School of Nursing
    5 A.S. degree awarded through a cooperative program with the School of
    Health Related Professions at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    6 A.A.S. degree awarded through a cooperative program with Brookdale Community College

    The academic programs offered by Mercer County Community College are among the most diversified and comprehensive in the country. Included are transfer programs that prepare students for entry into baccalaureate programs and career programs that prepare students for immediate employment after graduation.

    The terms “transfer” or “career” simply describe the primary objective of the program. Many transfer graduates have been successful in gaining employment upon graduation. Many graduates of career programs have been successful in transferring to four-year colleges, with many of their MCCC credits being accepted.

    In general, both kinds of degree programs require no more than 66 credits for graduation.

    Because Mercer is committed to promoting intellectual development, aesthetic appreciation, and cultural awareness, every program of study includes a general education component. This component, addressed through a variety of courses, focuses on reading analytically, communicating ideas clearly, solving problems, and developing a broad base of knowledge. Students are given the opportunity to develop analytical, synthetic/creative, and evaluative thinking; scientific reasoning; artistic response and expression; historical consciousness; cultural awareness; and sensitivity to the contemporary world.

    Transfer degree (A.A. A.F.A. or A.S.) programs are designed primarily to enable students to enter the third year of baccalaureate study at four-year colleges. The largest student enrollments in transfer degree programs are in humanities and social science, business administration, education, criminal justice, and nursing. Other transfer degree programs range from architecture, communication and visual arts to engineering science and plant science.

    For many students, the transfer experience is made easier by “dual admission” and “program articulation” agreements between Mercer and other colleges.

    Career degree (A.A.S.) programs are designed primarily to prepare graduates for entry-level employment in an occupation which requires both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Mercer has A.A.S. programs as varied as accounting, aviation, chef apprenticeship, electronics, ornamental horticulture, microcomputer systems administration, television, funeral service, and computer graphics.

    Two engineering technology programs function both as transfer degree and career degree programs, with slightly more than half of all graduates transferring to four-year technology programs and others finding employment. Many employed students use career programs to gain advanced positions in their chosen field or to change careers. Some other A.A.S. programs also provide a basis for transfer to four-year colleges; a student may lose credits, however, if he or she transfers to an unrelated program of study.

    Many students enroll at Mercer for purposes other than earning a degree or certificate. The college offers four enrollment categories for such students:

    • Other college — Students take courses at Mercer to fulfill program requirements at another college.
    • Job Related — Students take courses specifically selected to enhance knowledge and skills for current or future employment.
    • Exploratory — Students are undecided about which degree or certificate program they intend to pursue. They may take courses from several program areas to help them select.
    • Personal — Students take courses for other reasons. Advisors at each campus help non-degree students select courses.

    Mercer offers a comprehensive program for students who are learning English as a second language. The multilevel sequence consists of two pre-credit and eight credit courses that emphasize grammar, speech, reading and writing skills. The free ESL placement test, arranged through the ESL Learning Center, should be completed at least two weeks before registration for classes.

    The noncredit preparatory courses are offered through the English Language Institute (ELI) at the James Kerney and West Windsor campuses. Contact ELI at the James Kerney Campus or the ESL Learning Center at the West Windsor Campus for further information.

    The LPN-RN advanced placement option offers licensed practical nurses (LPNs) the opportunity to gain experiential credit for their LPN license and receive credit for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). Applicants must possess a high school diploma (or equivalent), have graduated from an accredited LPN school, possess a valid New Jersey LPN license and complete all the prerequisite course requirements for the nursing curriculum.

    Admission to the professional phase of the program requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a passing score on the HESI Admission Assessment Exam. Six credits are given for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). The student is then able to enroll in Alterations in Health I (NRS 120), Alterations in Health II (NRS 121), or Concepts of Mental Health Nursing (NRS 123). Students must earn a minimum grade of C in all nursing, science, and mathematics courses to graduate.

    Please note that admission to either of the LPN-RN Advanced Placement program options are on a space available basis only.

    Students who complete the college’s Nursing program earn the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses (RNs).

    Cooperative education integrates textbook and classroom learning with work experience. Several academic programs offer cooperative education components. The program affords many advantages to students who are able to earn an income while attending college and earn college credits for their cooperative education experiences. In addition, many graduates find employment easier to obtain if they have had prior work experiences.

    A successful co-op experience requires careful delineation of learning objectives and employer willingness to support them. The college assists students in defining objectives and obtaining co-op positions.

    This pearl in Mobirise’s crown comes to spread a calm mood and a bit nostalgic appearance – just like the last days of august. The whole set of elements as colors, fonts, buttons appearance and so on are picked up together for presenting your content in a soft and friendly way in order to get the viewer’s sympathy with each scroll down. This bootstrap 4 theme is perfect for blogs, charities, and personal pages of artists – generally anything aiming for the user’s heart.

    Starting up with Web Maker is as easy as a play

    All you need to do is to pick up a block from the ones in your right side panel which you think gets closer to the way you imagine a segment of your content – you call it from the red plus button. Any block can be customized through its properties panel – the blue gear icon. A good idea is playing with all the options for any block – this way you’ll get a better idea of its capabilities and in time will know better which block can fit better your content. On the top white bar you’ve got some self-explanatory icons as different views like Mobile, Tablet, and Desktop, preview (the eye) and publish – switch between views any time and see how the site will look right in Maker window. Publish your site locally or use the built-in FTP upload function. Load a project at its published state importing the mobirise.project file generated upon publishing. Add pages to your project, change titles, descriptions and place tracking code from the submenus in hamburger menu. Change entirely the project’s colors and fonts through the style changer – the blue brush over the plus icon.

    CV dos and don’ts

    What type of curriculum vitae (CV) is most likely to impress potential employers? One that is simple, straightforward, organized and tailored to fit a job ad, experts say.

    “Right now it’s a very competitive job market, and a CV is your ticket to an interview,” says Tara Kuther, PhD, an associate professor of psychology at Western Connecticut State University who has given seminars on writing CVs. “A vitae that is formatted nicely, attractive, looks professional and presents your strengths really stands out to employers.”

    As such, putting together your CV takes much care and forethought. First off, be sure the job asks for a vitae and not a résumé. A vitae is a detailed record that showcases your career and education accomplishments and can be unlimited in length, whereas a résumé is generally a one-page overview of your career. When applying for most jobs in psychology, employers will request that you send a vitae, not a résumé.

    Also, depending on the type of job you are applying for-a practice or academic one-you might need to tailor your vitae. When applying for a practice job, highlight your internship and practicum experience, experts recommend. On the other hand, when applying for an academic or research job, highlight your publications, teaching and research experiences, they say.

    Here are the essentials of a vitae that impresses:

    Organize your vitae with sections such as “education,” “professional experience” and “publications,” and list each accomplishment in chronological order with beginning and end dates. Also, if applicable, include sections such as “practica/psychotherapy experience,” “volunteer/service work,” “awards and scholarships” and “professional affiliations.”

    When applying for a practitioner job, include a section on assessment measures you have mastered during training, advises Shawn Roberson, PhD, a forensic psychologist at the Oklahoma Forensic Center, part of the Northeastern Psychology Internship Program. Roberson helps to screen internship applicants at the center.


    What to include depends on what the position entails, experts say. For instance, should you include coursework? Most advisers say no, but some recommend listing any specialized training-you might include coursework in forensic psychology, for example, when applying for a forensic job. However, experts generally say that coursework, methodological skills and software proficiencies should be omitted from a vitae that’s geared for full-time jobs, since it’s assumed that psychologists have mastered these skills. Still, you might include such skills on applications for internship and postdoctoral positions, they note.

    In particular, any undergraduate experiences you include should be highly relevant to your psychology career and the job at hand, says Mary Kite, PhD, associate dean of the Graduate School at Ball State University and a professor of psychological science there. While social fraternities and sororities don’t belong on a vitae, students might note membership in Psi Chi or Phi Beta Kappa and high academic honors, such as magna cum laude, Kite says.

    Be creative in relating your experiences to the job, Roberson adds. If the position requires public speaking or organizational involvement, you might, for example, highlight your work with organizational boards. Experts also say you should not include your age, relationship status or hobbies on your CV.


    Too often students try to cram too much information on a page, Kite says. Keep job descriptions clear and concise, and follow a standard format. Bold the headers of the different sections-such as education and professional experience-and use a simple font such as Times New Roman, experts recommend. Also, use quality white or ivory paper, Kite advises. These steps will help employers easily absorb the information on your CV.


    Don’t pad your vitae to make it appear more impressive, experts advise. For example, Kuther says, many students lump publications and presentations together to make the section look longer. But search committees usually prefer to see them separate, she says. “Everyone understands you’re a student,” Kuther explains. “If you only have one [published] article listed, that is still a fantastic thing.”


    Match your background, skills and training to the job you’re applying for, Roberson says. For example, clinical psychologists need to emphasize internship and supervision experience, while academic applicants need to highlight research and teaching experience, Kite adds. “If a student is looking for both, then they should have two different vitae rather than a one-size-fits-all vitae,” Kite says.


    Use the cover letter to highlight accomplishments on your CV, such as clinical, research or education experiences that match the job, Roberson notes. You can also call attention to work that doesn’t belong in the CV: If you have any research in progress, for instance, use the cover letter to mention it, Kite says. The CV should only contain research that has been published or is in press, she explains. And, just like the CV, the cover letter also needs to be customized for every employer.

    Ask colleagues or faculty members to check your vitae for awkward phrasing, formatting problems and spelling errors, and to give you feedback on content and organization, advise Kite and others.

    Ultimately, the vitae should serve as a summary of your education and career experiences, Kite notes, and should be continually updated throughout your career.

    A carotenoid-derived hormonal signal that inhibits shoot branching in plants has long escaped identification. Strigolactones are compounds thought to be derived from carotenoids and are known to trigger the germination of parasitic plant seeds and stimulate symbiotic fungi. Here we present evidence that carotenoid cleavage dioxygenase 8 shoot branching mutants of pea are strigolactone deficient and that strigolactone application restores the wild-type branching phenotype to ccd8 mutants. Moreover, we show that other branching mutants previously characterized as lacking a response to the branching inhibition signal also lack strigolactone response, and are not deficient in strigolactones. These responses are conserved in Arabidopsis. In agreement with the expected properties of the hormonal signal, exogenous strigolactone can be transported in shoots and act at low concentrations. We suggest that endogenous strigolactones or related compounds inhibit shoot branching in plants. Furthermore, ccd8 mutants demonstrate the diverse effects of strigolactones in shoot branching, mycorrhizal symbiosis and parasitic weed interaction.

    Mobile Design + Coding

    Toronto iPhone App Development Services

    Whether you’re a tech start-up with a new idea for smartphone software or an established business, Dogtown Media offers all the mobile app development resources and services you need to create a commercially viable iPhone app. We guide you through every step of the process, drawing on our talented team of in-house professionals can help you refine your concept, design, code and launch your app on the app stores.

    We can develop a customized iPhone app solution to meet your specifications and scale accordingly to satisfy user demands.

    The Toronto iPhone app developers at our company can assist you in every phase of the mobile app development process. From fleshing out an idea to submitting a finalized app into the iTunes app store, we have the experience and wherewithal to make your big dreams come to fruition at a price you can afford.

    Toronto Mobile App Developers

    All apps begin in the same place: with an idea. While every successful app fills an open niche in the market, there are many different approaches you can take. At Dogtown Media, we understand how to develop iPhone apps with broad-use potential as well as software products with a highly targeted and specific focus. We will help you identify and zero in on your market niche, and elevate your idea to a new level.

    It sound easy, but the truth is that app development can be a very demanding process. Our team of iPhone app developers in Toronto have a proven track record in the software development industry, and are experts at taking apps from idea to market.

    We draw on complete professional tools to create a prototype for your app, refining its layout, features and functionality before finalizing its design. From there, we create a customized programming strategy and schedule, then move into the next phase of app development.

    Challenges can arise during the app programming phase, which is why we’ve assembled one of the top teams of app programmers in the country. We constantly test, troubleshoot, and refine your app’s programming needs to ensure optimal functionality and easy integration with the various iPhone models and compatible devices.

    When the programming phase is complete, your idea will have moved from a concept to a fully functioning app that’s ready for market. At this point, we’ll turn the task of connecting your app to a user base over to our software marketing experts.

    While app design, development, and programming all pose challenges, one of the biggest hurdles you’ll have to clear is getting your app noticed. App distribution can create difficult obstacles. After all, the mobile software market is highly competitive, and new products are being released all the time. It can seem overwhelming, and even the most talented app developers and programmers can feel lost without specialized distribution and marketing guidance.

    Our consultants offer refined, proven strategies for getting your app into the hands of a wide base of potential users. If you would like to learn more about our process, or if you have any other questions about our services, please contact us for a free initial development consultation.

    Top 10 cloud tools #cloud #development #tools

    Top 10 cloud tools


    Cloud vendors are delivering boatloads of new tools to help enterprise IT build, buy, manage, monitor, tweak and track cloud services. These tools are designed to help IT execs free up their budgets and their staff so both can be used towards more strategic, line of business projects. (Watch a slideshow version of this story.)

    We surveyed cloud practitioners and came up with this list of the most useful cloud tools. Here are their top 10 picks.

    Category: Cloud Cost Analytics

    Cloudability is a financial management tool for monitoring and analyzing all cloud expenses across an organization. It aggregates expenditures into reports, helps identify opportunities for reducing costs, offers budget alerts and recommendations via SMS and email, and provides APIs for connecting cloud billing and usage data to any business or financial system. The company in February announced that it currently monitors over $250 million in cloud costs, which is double what it monitored less than six months ago.

    Product: S3 Life-Cycle Tracker, EC2 Reservation Detector, RDS Reservation Detector

    Category: Cloud Optimization

    These tools are designed to help corporate IT from over-buying Amazon cloud resources. Cloudyn’s suite of services gives users a dashboard showing detailed information on all of their virtual machine instances, databases and storage. Cloudyn then provides insights into inefficiencies and suggestions on how to get rid of them. Currently focused on Amazon’s cloud, the company has stated in the past that it will work on tools that track usage in Rackspace, Microsoft Azure and GoGrid in the future.

    Category: Cloud Integration

    AtomSphere is a cloud-based software Platform as a Service used by customers that want to integrate their various cloud-based applications with each other and with on-premise applications. New functionality provided as part of an upgrade last summer allows usage of multiple data sources and reservation of cloud resources for real-time data transfer in integration processes. The company announced in February that the AtomSphere platform is now handling more than a million integration processes per day. That number is 250% higher than it was a year ago.

    Category: Cloud infrastructure management

    Enstratius provides cross-platform cloud infrastructure management for public, private and hybrid clouds that can be closely aligned with an enterprise’s governance and security requirements. Features include self-service provisioning/de-provisioning of cloud resources; multi-currency cost/chargeback tracking; customizable role-based access controls; single login to manage all cloud resources; and, support for enterprise authentication systems including SAML 2.0 and OpenID.

    Enstratius also supports integration with management tools and the orchestration of configuration management tools such as Chef and Puppet across clouds; automated encryption of all cloud data in transit and at rest with all keys stored outside of the cloud and full application automation including auto-scaling, auto-recovery, cloud bursting.

    The list of Enstratius’ supported clouds is growing considerably and currently most of the big names, including Amazon Web Services, OpenStack-based clouds, Google, HP Cloud Services, Rackspace, Microsoft Windows Azure and IBM SmartCloud Enterprise.

    Product: Informatica Cloud Spring 2013

    Category: Cloud data integration

    Informatica – a long-time data integration vendor – this month will roll out its next generation suite of cloud integration tools (which are delivered as a platform as a service) that include enhancements that address data security issues in the cloud and help enterprise IT manage data integration issues in hybrid cloud deployments.

    The new Informatica Cloud Data Masking service reduces the risk of data breaches during application development and testing. And the new Informatica Cloud Extend workflow service is geared toward business process creation and management in the cloud. The upgrade from the company’s 2012 Winter version also delivers new security and administration features that support broader cloud integration deployments and strengthen IT governance and control.

    These include hybrid security options for storing connection credentials – (e.g. username, password, security token, etc.) on-premise, behind the firewall or in the cloud; and organization-level blackouts that give administrators the ability to define blackout periods during which no integration, replication or data quality jobs will run, thus strengthening IT control and simplifying the management of upgrades.

    Category: Cloud integration service

    Delivered as a packaged integration experience, CloudHub and Mule ESB are built on open source technology to provide quick, reliable application integration without vendor lock-in. The company offers CloudHub, a cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for connecting SaaS, cloud and on-premise applications and APIs; and, Mule ESB, an open source enterprise service bus for connecting enterprise applications on-premise and to the cloud. The company claims it is currently supporting billions of transactions per day, used in production by thousands of enterprises, including Walmart, MasterCard, Nokia, Nestle and Honeywell. Additionally, MuleSoft enables integrations with leading SaaS vendors such as, NetSuite, Workday, Intuit and Metanga.

    Category: Cloud Configuration Management

    Chef is an open source Ruby-based configuration management product served up by Opscode under the Apache license. Hosted Chef (and its private cloud sibling, Private Chef) lets cloud system administrators programmatically configure virtual systems, thereby cutting down on repetitive, manual operations. Chef – which, as the name might allude, uses culinary terms as metaphors to organize its processes – mainly homes on the tasks of provisioning, configuring and integrating cloud resources. Opscode in February released a completely rewritten version of Chef which the company says offers unparalleled scalability.

    Category: Cloud Configuration Management

    Puppet Enterprise is IT automation software that gives system administrators the power to easily automate repetitive tasks, quickly deploy critical applications, and proactively manage infrastructure changes, on-premise or in the cloud. The product can automate tasks at any stage of the IT infrastructure life cycle, including provisioning, discovery, operating system and application configuration management, build and release management, patch management and infrastructure audit and compliance.

    Some of the newer features of Puppet include enabling system administrators to view and respond to requests graphically; support for the use of third-party authentication services such as LDAP, Active Directory or Google Apps Directory; and, support for Microsoft Windows. PuppetLabs customers include 24/7 Real Media, Harvard and Google. And VMware earlier this year made a $30 million investment in the company.

    Product: RightScale Cloud Management

    Category: Cloud Management

    Formed in 2006, RightScale was one of the first companies to address cross-platform cloud management. Its platform lets organizations easily deploy and manage business-critical applications across public, private and hybrid clouds. RightScale provides configuration, monitoring, automation, and governance of cloud computing infrastructure and applications. RightScale recently released the newest additions to its customer list which include Caltech, Care Innovations (an Intel-GE company), Citrix Online, Conde Nast, Coty, Equinix, Fox Digital Media, Inmobi, JWT, Leo Burnett, Softbank Technology, Telepictures Productions (a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company), Tibco and Zurich Insurance.

    Product: Agility Platform

    Category: Enterprise cloud management

    The Agility Platform provides a single, integrated control point for governance, compliance and security across an enterprise’s cloud applications and cloud environments. The platform comprises an extensible policy engine enabling the creation and enforcement of an impressive range of custom governance, compliance and security policies. It provides an end-to-end security model spanning network, instance, data, and access levels including federated identity management. It includes an orchestration engine for deploying complex, multi-tier business applications across heterogeneous private and public clouds. And it has an integrated event bus, a cloud adapter SDK, and workflow automation capabilities to extend cloud operating model capabilities to existing IT ecosystems.
