Can't believe August in only a day or two away. Summer is evident even at 7 in the morning. He is 11. Sturdy 5 feetn'all. Occupying the passenger seat as I drive to drop him off at JCA.
As I was ruminating the fate of life where every second of it is used to take care of life, what point then of life is.
"Dad, Where is the hardest place to drive?"
I was never given the impression that I am a trusted source on any subject especially by my kids. I am tolerated I suspect for conveniences they richly deserve. Espcially when asked on a subject that I have discounted myself, I could not hide the authority in my voice "Umm, downtown! Every Downtown I suppose. Ya DOwntown. I think. Yes! It is DOWNTOWN!!" Wanted to discourage any doubt there after.
"I am not going to go anywher near Downtown! DEFINITELY! When I drive! I will be CRAAAAAAZZZYYYYY to go anywhere near downotown." A period. A head nod. The word used is not "sure", "you know", "ummm" but "DEFINITELY". He has a way of saying DEFINITELY that is distinct where every letter is rolled in his mouth and considered, and every syllable is uttered and stressed to impose age that was not there. Then there was silence for the rest of the drive.
May be life has a small point!
No one should be offended or affirmed by what is in here. Beauty, Famously, is neither objective nor subjective but lies in their relationship.

ScrollView is an essential component in any UI framework. Understanding and mastering this component is essential. At the point I wrote this all I needed was to scroll a text view. It looks like Android allows TextView to scroll by itself without the help of embedding it in a ScrollView control. For now you can use this document to understand how to scroll a TextView without the the help of a ScrollView. Perhaps in the future this document will be expanded for a broader coverage of ScrollView.
An activity or window in Android is a collaboration or collusion of a number of assets such as the activity java file, the layout file, the menu files, the string values xml file etc.
You may want to tie these files together through documentation. For example in the activity file you want to indicate what menu files are used and what layout files are used.
Similarly in the menus file you want to document each menu item and indicate what it does and what java file it is implemented in. What follows is a quick example.
You may want to further embellish it more than what is in here.
See the full article to see the documented menu file.

As of July 2014
In life we take lot of things for granted. Some of them are obvious like breathing, walking, eating etc. These are obvious. Not so obviously we also take for granted our capacity for empathy, trust, love, listening and care.
Teams depend on trust to survive and succeed. How does one develop trust?
I must care for the work I do. I must care for those that work with me personally. I take pride when I am even a small reason for your well being and success.
I want to see from your point of view. I want to encourage your point of view. I want to encourage you to own your ideas and help them be better. I want to sit through, think through and explore your ideas. I want to learn your perspective. I think this is a good thing. I believe I do not loose myself to be you.
I want to acquire a broader outlook. I want to circulate a broader outlook. My glory and my past I shall not bear on my present. I am a commoner in a common set of ideas. I am not privileged. Nor am I disadvantaged. I want to start my sentences with yes. World is far and wide. I want to be the skeptic that can perfectly walk.
Silence is the greatest communicator. I want to observe. I want to assess. Like a reed I want to bend to the stormy talk. With my eyes wide open I want to listen.
I want to understand the needs of others. I will put them first.
I derive an incredible joy in seeing others succeed.
To be profitable is to be in business. To be in business is to serve. When I serve I have no fear that I am not trusted.
Call me crazy. I think these attributes are teachable.Through culture. Through communal expectations. Through personal fulfillment. Through training.
Not a small crisis making meals that are even a bit considered healthy and still be in good graces with your young kids. I may have stumbled upon one after a decade of daily stumbles.

function Pair(inMin, inMax)
this.min = inMin;
this.max = inMax;
Which would let me use
var somepair = new Pair(5,10);
somepair.min => 5
somepair.max => 10
See this function now
var rpair = getReadingScaledScorePair();
var wpair = getWritingScaledScorePair();
var mpair = getMathScaledScorePair();
var tmin = rpair.min + wpair.min + mpair.min;
var tmax = rpair.max + wpair.max + mpair.max;
return new Pair(tmin, tmax);
