For years now my cholesterol has been hanging like a thread around bad boundary area. eat well, exercise, I was told. I did both. Not really moving any needles. Same thing this year when measured. So I looked up a little and here is a plan, should it work at all. Meaning to follow it up for sometime and see what happens. Here is a list of foods, drinks, and innocuous off the counter meds that I am planning to integrate into a regime for the next few months. I am yet to be convinced any home remedies work at all. Being an inveterate optimist I am hoping I am wrong

30-Jul-14). Hardest Place to Drive? (Shells: My Writes)

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!

Even a 5 minute run
Need to be regular and consistent

26-Jul-14). In Android how to scroll a TextView and a bit about ScrollView (Android 1.5)

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.

26-Jul-14). Here is one good way to document menus in your Android programs (Android Basic UI)

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.

9-Jul-14). On Trust! (Shells: My Writes)

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?

By Caring

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.

By putting oneself in the others shoes

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.

By letting Ego go

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.

By listening intently and intentionally

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.

By putting others needs first

I want to understand the needs of others. I will put them first.

By taking pleasure in others success

I derive an incredible joy in seeing others succeed.

By realizing all profit is 'Service', especially to others.

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.

My Parting Thought on Trust

Call me crazy. I think these attributes are teachable.Through culture. Through communal expectations. Through personal fulfillment. Through training.
