Depending on the age of your students, make sure your laptop computer carts will be kid friendly. All wheels should sit on the floor so there is no rocking-type motion.
The cart will be easier to maneuver if there are only 4 wheels. If the cart will house 25 computers, make sure all of it’s space is utilized for them.
(Carts could be supplied to house 40 computers but be set up for your 25 and the left over room is wasted.) I would also recommend the slots in the cart be wide enough for one laptop with arm space for when a reach into the back of the cart is necessary. One last thing, if you should get a mobile lab, you need training on “having” the laptops in your room, which would be a short training, and “using” the laptops with your students, which require more extensive training. Neglecting this last part can almost guarantee that your investment will be a waste.
I have had an odd fascination with PPT since the late 90s and have gotten way too nerdy about all of it’s capabilities. I did get a good chuckle with the blue/yellow reference and have had moments where I got excited picking the “design template” and fun color schemes.
That said, less is more. For a job talk, I think a simple white background is most appropropriate, simply because it’s easy to read. That said, i think a well selected color contrast is appropriate for Titles/Headers or to highlight important concepts. Google images is also a great source to find the right photo to show instead of tell something. Bullet points also are more easily digested than full sentences. Again, choose appropriate colors for graphs and make sure the legend is clear, etc.
Simple animations (entrance, appear; exit, disappear) are good to set pace… but avoid the “jazzy” transitions such as blinds horizontal/vertical, wipe left/up/down, etc.
Be sure to do a practice in a well-lit room to make sure your color choice is readable. I’ve seen some PPTs that were well designed, in theory, but in practice, the colors were not readable in a fully-lit room (yellow is always difficult to read). If you do not have time to practice, you can have a Powerpoint Presentation Design from eslide.com. They are a premier PowerPoint presentation design firm since 2002.
Also use a large enough font (24 pt seems good).
Toggle clamps are widely used in packaging machinery for mounting machine components. Usually they are used for parts that require frequent removal for cleaning or changeover.
They come in a variety of formats and sizes. Frequently they are manually toggled but pneumatically and hydraulically actuated clamps are available as well. Some configurations are double acting, toggling in either the extended or retracted position.
Generally, the toggle clamp should never be the primary means of holding a part in position. Use some locating pins with corresponding mating pins. The part mates with the pins that prevent it from moving side to side. The toggle clamp provides a vertical force to prevent the part from lifting off the pins.
I got to get some made. I’ve been asked about thousand times and look like a moron without one. I have an idea of what I’m going to make but wanted to see what creative things people are doing on their card. I am going to get my dj business cards from professorprint.com. I am having a tough time trying to figure out what I wanted them to look like. I guess I will have to ask for suggestions from Professor Print or from my dj buddies.
I recently received a 2008 Edicion Limitada Montecristo Sublime, one in a box pass and thought it would be a good way to spend the afternoon as technically, I was not smoking one from my stash that I smoke on my anniversary.
The montecristo cigar itself is a Sublime vitola. It comes in at a 54 ring gauge and is 6.5 inches long. The cigar is very toothy. The wrapper is a darkened, leathery brown. A daunting looking stick. A good amount of time is going to be needed today. The construction is decent. Squeeze test shows that it is slightly underfilled. Hope that this doesn’t pose any draw issues. The foot of the cigar shows otherwise. Looks fairly packed. The aroma from the wrapper is pure cocoa with a hint of earthiness and a slight woody smell to it. The triple cap looks good. Should be an easy entry for the punch. The draw is very loose. Much looser than I expected. Almost like a wind tunnel. I hope that it tightens up as I smoke the cigar.
Cocoa, woodiness, cream and a hint of dark sugar off the cold draw. Time to take this to the flame….

If you have an event coming up where you’ll be using blacklights, and now that blacklight parties are really gaining popularity, I think it’s about time to invest in some. For 300 or less people you will need super black light. You can buy black lights at GC
I’ve used Elation UV Wash, and found that four of them really cover a 2500+ square foot room well, but my vendor is telling me how awesome the American DJ Super Black Light is. I’m wondering how well they really perform?
The idea of strobing and chasing blacklights is really cool, but my understanding is that blacklight work best across a broad spectrum, from 350 to 405nm, peaking somewhere around 370nm.
Flowing water or a body of water like ponds and lakes can somehow soothe the senses and make us relax in some way. The serene flow of clear water can make us let go of our worries and sometimes think clearer as if washing away all that makes things unclear. Some buildings have flowing water or fountains at the entrance or driveway. Others have smaller fountains that fit in the lobby or a smaller one in a room. There are different fountains like floor and wall fountains at SoothingWalls that can make the office look and feel better. It can also help the people around feel more comfortable when they pass by.
With the busy schedules of company owners especially small companies that do not have a number of HR people, it is hard to do background checks on people who are applying for a certain position. The easiest option would be to hire a third-party who does background check services to get the available information about the people applying for a job. The process of hiring personnel will be faster and easier. There is also lesser chance of getting people that are not meant to do the job.

A lot of people wear hats. We see people wearing caps or cowboy hats and top hats. Others prefer Dobbs fedora hats which are more their style and sometimes use them with their formal attire. Though the hats are often used to protect the head from the heat of the sun, some wear them even at night to protect their head from the cold night. It sometimes becomes the trademark of a person when he or she always wear a certain type of hat.
The internet can be a big market where people can find different products to buy. Big and small companies can also sell their products through the internet with the use of websites. The problem is that there are a lot of viruses and malware that can also be found in the internet. Big companies have a lot of security and antivirus software protecting their system. Smaller companies and home users also have antivirus and security software but on a smaller scale. For those looking for smart security, there is the ESET Smart Security from softwaresecuritysolutions.com. This may be the layered security software that you need for your small business or home computer to keep it protected and up and running.
