I'm alone in the office of Bateman's Eternal Light Funeral Services. It's early Monday morning and Mr. Bateman is busy with a new shipment of coffins.

"I'll get to you as soon as I can," he told me. "Meanwhile, you can go into my office and look at my fish. They're in an aquarium on the far wall. If you get bored, there're magazines on the coffee table. By the way, I'm sorry about your sister." I don't want to look at Mr. Bateman's fish. And I certainly don't want to read. I just want to get this meeting over with before I cry and make a fool of myself.

Mr. Bateman's office is huge. It's also dark. The blinds are closed and half the fluorescent lights are burned out. Aside from the lamp on his desk, most of the light in the room comes from the aquarium. That's fine, I guess. The darkness hides the junk piled in the corners: hammers, boards, paint cans, saws, boxes of nails, and a stepladder. Mr. Bateman renovated the place six months ago, but he hasn't tidied up yet.

Before the renovations, Bateman's Eternal Light didn't do funerals. It was a building supply center. That's why it's located between a lumber yard and a place that rents cement mixers. Mr. Bateman opened it when he arrived from England eight years ago. It was always busy, but these days, despite the building boom, there's more money in death than construction.

The day of the grand reopening, Mr. Bateman announced plans to have a chain of Eternal Lights across the country within two years. When reporters asked if he had any training in embalming, he said no, but he was completing a correspondence course from some college in the States. He also promised to hire the best hair stylists in town, and to offer discount rates. "No matter how poor, there's a place for everyone at Bateman's." That's why I'm here.

When Mr. Bateman finally comes in, I don't notice. Somehow I've ended up on a folding chair in front of his aquarium staring at an angelfish. It's staring back. I wonder what it's thinking. I wonder if it knows it's trapped in a tank for the rest of its life. Or maybe it's happy swimming back and forth between the plastic grasses, nibbling algae from the turquoise pebbles and investigating the little pirate chest with the lid that blows air bubbles. I've loved angelfish ever since I saw pictures of them in a collection of National Geographics some missionaries donated to my school.

"So sorry to have kept you," Mr. Bateman says.

I leap to my feet.

"Sit, sit. Please," he smiles.

We shake hands and I sink back into the folding chair. He sits opposite me in an old leather recliner. There's a tear on the armrest with gray stuffing poking out. Mr. Bateman picks at it.

"Are we expecting your papa?" "No," I say. "My step-papa's working." That's a lie. My step-papa is dead drunk at the neighborhood shebeen.

"Are we waiting for your mama, then?" "She can't come either. She's very sick." This part is almost true. Mama is curled up on the floor, rocking my sister. When I told her we had to find a mortuary she just kept rocking. "You go," she whispered. "You're sixteen. I know you'll do what needs doing. I have to stay with my Sara." Mr. Bateman clears his throat. "Might there be an auntie coming, then? Or an uncle?" "No." "Ah." His mouth bobs open and shut. His skin is pale and scaly. He reminds me of one of his fish. "Ah," he says again. "So you've been sent to make the arrangements by yourself." I nod and stare at the small cigarette burn on his lapel. "I'm sixteen.

"Ah." He pauses. "How old was your sister?" "Sara's one and a half," I say. "Was one and a half." "One and a half. My, my." Mr. Bateman clucks his tongue. "It's always a shock when they're infants." A shock? Sara was alive two hours ago. She was cranky all night because of her rash. Mama rocked her through dawn, till she stopped whining. At first we thought she'd just fallen asleep. (God, please forgive me for being angry with her last night. I didn't mean what I prayed. Please let this not be my fault.) I lower my eyes.

Mr. Bateman breaks the silence. "You'll be glad you chose Eternal Light," he confides. "It's more than a mortuary. We provide embalming, a hearse, two wreaths, a small chapel, funeral programs and a mention in the local paper." I guess this is supposed to make me feel better. It doesn't. "How much will it cost?" I ask.

"That depends," Mr. Bateman says. "What sort of funeral would you like?" My hands flop on my lap. "Something simple, I guess." "A good choice." I nod. It's obvious I can't pay much. I got my dress from a ragpicker at the bazaar and I'm dusty and sweaty from my bicycle ride here.

"Would you like to start by selecting a coffin?" he asks.

"Yes, please." Mr. Bateman leads me to his showroom. The most expensive coffins are up front, but he doesn't want to insult me by whisking me to the back. Instead I get the full tour. "We stock a full line of products," he says. "Models come in pine and mahogany, and can be fitted with a variety of brass handles and bars. We have beveled edges, or plain. As for the linings, we offer silk, satin, and polyester in a range of colors. Plain pillowcases for the head rest are standard, but we can sew on a lace ribbon for free." The more Mr. Bateman talks, the more excited he gets, giving each model a little rub with his handkerchief. He explains the difference between coffins and caskets: "Coffins have flat lids. Caskets have round lids." Not that it makes a difference. In the end, they're all boxes.

I'm a little frightened. We're getting to the back of the show-room and the price tags on the coffins are still an average year's wages. My step-papa does odd jobs, my mama keeps a few chickens and a vegetable garden, my sister is five and a half, my brother is four, and I'm in high school. Where is the money going to come from?

Mr. Bateman sees the look on my face. "For children's funerals, we have a less costly alternative," he says. He leads me behind a curtain into a back room and flicks on a light bulb. All around me, stacked to the ceiling, are tiny whitewashed coffins, dusted with yellow, pink, and blue spray paint.

Mr. Bateman opens one up. It's made of pressboards, held together with a handful of finishing nails. The lining is a plastic sheet, stapled in place. Tin handles are glued to the outside; if you tried to use them, they'd fall off.

I look away.

Mr. Bateman tries to comfort. "We wrap the children in a beautiful white shroud. Then we fluff the material over the sides of the box. All you see is the little face. Sara will look lovely." I'm numb as he takes me back to the morgue, where she'll be kept till she's ready. He points at a row of oversized filing cabinets. "They're clean as a whistle, and fully refrigerated," he assures me. "Sara will have her own compartment, unless other children are brought in, of course, in which case she'll have to share."We return to the office and Mr. Bateman hands me a contract. "If you've got the money handy, I'll drive by for the body at one. Sara will be ready for pickup Wednesday afternoon. I'll schedule the burial for Thursday morning." I swallow hard. "Mama would like to hold off until the weekend. Our relatives need time to come in from the country." "I'm afraid there's no discount on weekends," Mr. Bateman says, lighting a cigarette.

"Then maybe next Monday, a week today?" "Not possible. I'll be up to my ears in new customers. I'm sorry. There're so many deaths these days. It's not me. It's the market."

What is a grey hat hacker?We've previously described bug bounty programs and white hat hackers, but there's another type of hacker that's a shade darker. Grey hat hacking sits, predictably, somewhere between the white and black hat hackers, and occupies a grey area. But what is a grey hat hacker? What is the difference between white, grey and black hat hackers? The coloured-hat concept stems from a trope in old spaghetti Western films where, to make it easier for the audience to recognise the characters, the 'good guy' would wear a white hat, and the 'bad guy' would wear a black hat. Thankfully, we've moved on enough that we do not need such obvious signs to tell us who's who, but it gives a good basis for the 'good' and 'bad' when it comes to hacking. To make it clear where a grey hat hacker falls, we need to clarify what black hat and white hat hackers do. The key behind the figurative hat a hacker wears is their intention. White hat hackers have good intentions - in this context, that means that they do not look to exploit their findings for personal gain. Instead, a white hat hacker will look for vulnerabilities and try to exploit them only when they have permission from the target company - who they then inform of the issue.This gives the company time to patch the vulnerability without anyone else finding out, and can save them millions. They are so critical in fact, that larger companies often encourage white hat hacking as a way of organically testing the security of their systems. They support this with bug bounty programmes that reward the hackers for disclosing their findings. White hat hackers have all of the required knowledge of how they could exploit software, networks, or systems, but choose instead to work with the owner instead of against them. In fact, white hat hackers are commonly employed by companies as security experts, and can even earn an official "Certified Ethical Hacker" (CEH) certification which proves them to be effective and conscientious hackers. Again, this depends on the intentions of the hacker. A black hat hacker searches for bugs and vulnerabilities in software and systems, but almost always with more nefarious intentions. When a black hat hacker finds a gap in a system's security, they would choose to exploit it rather than notify the owner, and depending on the system, this exploit could have disastrous and wide-ranging consequences. Their primary motivation is usually for personal or financial gain, such as holding data or information around vulnerabilities to ransom. They also might support a cause that their target opposes, motivating them to cause damage. They operate well outside of the law. As logic would suggest, a grey hat hacker falls somewhere between white hat and black hat hackers. Unlike Certified Ethical Hacking, grey hat hacking is still illegal, as the hacker has not received permission from an organisation to attempt to infiltrate their systems, but the intentions of grey hat hackers are not as troublesome as their black hat counterparts. Grey hat hacking is sometimes done with the intent of public interest, although quite commonly, if a grey hat identifies a flaw and points it out to a company, the company will work with the hacker to fix the exploit - often rewarding them just like they would a white hat. If a hacker is rewarded well enough for reporting a vulnerability rather than exploiting it, they are more likely to do so. However, the difference between grey hat hackers and white hat hackers is that if the company decides to ignore a grey hat hacker, the hacker is not bound by ethical hacking rules or an employment contract. They could decide instead to exploit the flaw themselves, or share the knowledge online for other hackers to take advantage of. Do grey hat hackers get rewarded or punished? As we've already said, grey hat hacking is illegal, regardless of the intention. If there is not permission from the target to find vulnerabilities, trying to crack a company's security against the law. So a grey hat hacker should expect to be punished by disclosing a vulnerability to a company. However, some companies use their bug bounty programmes to encourage grey hat hackers to report their findings, and will provide the bounty to avoid the wider risk of having the hacker use the vulnerability for their own gain. But this is relatively rare, so getting the company's permission is the only way to guarantee that a hacker will be within the law.
Should I Buy This Lens?
Should I Buy This Lens?
It will not be a fisheye, it will just give a fisheye effect on top of the lens where it is used1. Is there a way to remove lens flare?Fortunately the flare do not cover anything important on the photo so I would just remove it with spot healing brush and then proceed with corrections as normal. Maybe play with LAB channels rather than RGB2. Are bigger lens in a camera a better thing then small lens?What are the advantages of a bigger lens?You seem to have answered your own question, at least as far as the practicality of reaching a distant subject. The disadvantage compared with a 'prime' lens of the same max focal length is the extra weight, the smaller max aperture and probably poorer definition, though the last quality has been much improved lately3. Can anyone identify this lens?That's a one-shot 360 panoramic lens. There are a number of examples out there with different mirror shapes; two of the currently-active vendors areThey use different mirror shapes -- the 0-360 version is similar to your drawing, while the EGG is more like what would be left after a circle is swept out of a cylinder, so the effect (as a flat picture) would be different. The EGG is the only current one I could find that did not have the mirror exposed and at the end of a long, delicate-looking stalk, but since I am not looking for such a lens myself, I did not spend a lot of time searching.(When I wanted a 360 panorama in the film days, I rented a slit-shutter revolving camera. It opened the shutter and rotated the camera through a full circle while advancing the film -- sort of like a flatbed scanner for the world.)4. Are Camera Lens Add-ons for Smartphones Worth Buying?If your smartphone does not have a trio of lenses (like the iPhone 11 Pro), you might be tempted to purchase a snap-on set. These allow you to add telephoto, ultrawide, and fisheye focal lengths to virtually any smartphone camera. But are they worth the money, or should you upgrade your phone instead? Lens add-ons attach to your smartphone's camera lens and increase or decrease its focal length. Most smartphones have at least one wide-angle lens. The one on the iPhone 11 is equivalent to about 26mm on a real camera, which is a bit wider than the human eye. Lens add-ons can give you more photographic possibilities when your phone does not have additional lenses built-in. Telephoto lenses might double or triple your focal length (and, thus, zoom level), while fisheye lenses are so wide, they cause straight lines in your shot to appear curved. If you are a fan of smartphone photography, aftermarket lenses allow you to go beyond what is possible on your stock device. There are even some clip-on lenses you can mount to the front of your device to take super-wide selfies or make fisheye FaceTime calls. At the cheaper end of the spectrum are the pocketable plastic lenses you can clip on or off, as necessary. It's not unusual to find multiple lens options in the same clip-on system. You will find hundreds of these one-size-fits-all options on sites like Amazon, Wish, or AliExpress. Then, there are the "professional" clip-on systems, made from more robust materials, like glass and metal. Some of these require a purpose-built case, which ensures the lens lines up properly and remains in place. These pricier options can be much bigger than the simple clip-on lenses. Many of them also come with a carrying case and lens caps to keep them safe. Finally, some mounting systems do not come with lenses. Rather, they are intended for use with SLR and mirrorless lenses from manufacturers like Canon, Nikon, and Sony. These only make sense if you already have an arsenal of lenses you want to use with your smartphone. You can spend anywhere from a few dollars to a few hundred on a lens add-on system. Unfortunately, none of them quite come close to a native, built-in telephoto or ultrawide lens, like those on the latest and greatest smartphones. A camera lens add-on is only as good as your smartphone's primary camera lens. That is to say, any images that pass through a lens add-on must also pass through the existing lens on that Apple or Samsung (insert the manufacturer of your device here) phone. This is a stark difference to a mirrorless or digital SLR camera system. When you change the lens on a modular camera, you are swapping out the only piece of glass in front of the sensor. So, the image quality is as good as this lens allows. If your smartphone's camera is already of questionable quality, a lens add-on is not going to clean up the images-even if you spend a lot of money. Expect the same soft details around the edges, and glare or flares in places you do not want them. Adding to this, a smartphone camera is also bound by the core limitation of its sensor. The sensor ultimately governs image quality by limiting how much light can make it into a single exposure. Larger sensors, like those found on full-frame cameras, have much better native low-light performance. They also offer more overall detail, since a greater surface area is used to capture a scene. Another drawback of lens add-ons is their size-some of the larger ones protrude significantly. Smartphones are often favored by street photographers due to their inconspicuous nature. If you slap a lens on the back of it, you lose the reason so many embrace smartphone-photography in the first place. By now, you are probably thinking lens add-ons are a waste of time and money, but that's not necessarily the case. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve. Cheap clip-on lenses are a lot of fun, and many of them are priced accordingly. You wo not be winning Wildlife Photographer of the Year, but you might snap some fun images you can look back on in years to come. If you are fond of the lo-fi aesthetic or own a Holga camera, you will probably love the inconsistencies you get from shooting with a cheap clip-on lens. Some smartphones and tablets (particularly the iPhone and iPad) are used for filmmaking. Entire indie films have been shot and produced with iPhones, while other filmmakers use tablets, like the iPad Pro, to capture B roll and cutaways. A broader range of focal lengths can only expand these horizons. This also applies to livestreaming-after all, there's no easier way to broadcast video on the internet than with your smartphone. RELATED: How to Take Better Photos with Your iPhone You Get What You Pay for The cheapest lens add-ons are made from plastic. Because they are not glass like real lenses, images will be soft and glare will pose an issue. Plastic is also soft and tends to damage quite easily, which will further reduce image quality. Some of the cheapest lenses might even interfere with autofocus, especially if you are trying to focus on a subject toward the edge of the frame. The image will always be sharpest in the middle. Plastic is also a bad choice for overall image quality, contrast, and color reproduction. Amazon is full of cheap clip-on lens kits (like this one and this other one). They wo not provide amazing image quality, but you can get a variety of focal lengths to play with for as little as $10. The more expensive lenses are made of glass and metal. The best will have little to no effect on image quality, while some of the midrange options might be a little soft, particularly around the edges. Systems with tailor-made cases ensure the lens wo not move around or slip, and ergonomic grips are designed with shooting in mind. One of the longest-running smartphone lens manufacturers is Olloclip. The company's latest offerings also use high-quality glass and metal construction, but at a steeper price than previous products. A basic clip and lens will run you around $100, while a set of three lenses and a clip is just shy of $200. Arguably, the best lenses available for smartphones are made by Moment. They are made of high-quality materials to ensure the best possible image quality. You will pay at least $70 per lens, with mounting brackets and cases costing more. Perhaps the best solution is to use adapters for existing 35mm lenses, although they are incredibly unwieldy when loaded up with anything larger than a simple kit lens. Since smartphones are light and thin, there's nothing to counterbalance the heft of a full-size lens barrel. However, the image quality is unparalleled, and a tripod makes shooting much easier. You can get an EnCinema SLR Lens Adapter Kit for between $80 and $300, depending on which mount and adapters you need. There's also the Beastgrip iPhone rigging system that allows you to mount a range of lenses (including the smaller, purpose-built kind). These systems might belong in the pocket of someone who wants to use a smartphone for production work, livestreaming, gonzo journalism, or even independent filmmaking. Sometimes, all you need to make your smartphone photography shine is the right app. A proper "manual" camera app that provides control over things like aperture (depth of field), ISO, and exposure time can yield great results if you know how to use it. You can learn to use your smartphone manually or, for even better results, how to shoot in RAW. Similarly, for filmmakers, apps like FiLMiC Pro (iOS, Android) can unlock the full potential of your camera in a way stock apps cannot. FiLMiC Pro can be used to control camera parameters manually, pull focus, record at higher-than-stock bitrates, set custom white balance, and more. These apps are cheap compared to the price of a fancy lens set. Finally, there's also something to be said for using stock camera apps with built-in ultrawide lenses. Smartphones like the iPhone 11 apply image correction to remedy visual distortions introduced by wide focal lengths (like curved straight lines). This is another reason your device's built-in lenses are almost always your best choice.

These Salicylic Acid Face Washes Are The Key To Clear, Healthy SkinIf you've ever dealt with acne, whiteheads, or blackheads, then you've likely heard of salicylic acid. It's an all-in-one acne-fighter that can zap zits quickly. Salicylic acid appears in all sorts of skin care products, and it works really well in face wash. When shopping for the best salicylic acid face washes, choose a formula that addresses your skin care concerns, whether you are looking to clear acne, redness, or psoriasis. A face wash with naturally derived ingredients can be a good fit for sensitive skin, while salicylic acid pads offer a convenient way to double cleanse. Salicylic acid helps dissolve all the gunk that causes clogged pores, so salicylic acid face washes can be great for addressing congestion and pimples. Now it's important not to confuse salicylic acid with glycolic acid, because the two usually are spoken about in tandem. Glycolic acid exfoliates the top layer of the skin, which is helpful in reducing acne scars and sunspots. Salicylic acid, on the other hand, exfoliates as well. It's great at penetrating deeply into your skin, so in that sense, it's perfect for healing acne, as it gets at the root of the inflammation. These two products actually work great together, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin. But if you are just looking to clear up a spot or two, or have super sensitive skin, then it's best to pick one and stick with it. And for our purposes today, that one is salicylic acid. Ahead, you will find five of the best salicylic acid cleansers on the market. Clear, healthy skin is just a click away. The Best For Reducing Inflammation: Perfect Image Salicylic Deep Gel Cleanser Salicylic acid is amazing for acne, but it can also cause redness in people who have more reactive skin. That's what makes Perfect Image Salicylic Acid Deep Cleanser such a win. Not only does it contain salicylic acid to eliminate bacteria, but it also contains tea tree oil, which is another amazing acne-fighter when applied topically. But the reason we really dig this cleanser is the green tea extract in its formula. It helps to soothe inflammation and keep red, irritated skin in check. So not only are you fighting pimples, but you are also helping to deflate them with the help of the antioxidant-rich green tea. Another cool thing about this product is how it expertly prepares the skin for a more even peel, so if you often get chemical treatments, you will definitely want to keep a bottle of this around to use beforehand. It's also worth nothing that the brand does make its own peel, which helps treat everything from acne to hyper-pigmentation, and you can find that here. Positive Amazon review: "I bought this to try for my troubled skin and love how it cleans my skin and how soft my skin feels after when I am done washing it. Love it."

Go Green with Energy Star Air Conditioner Efficiency
Go Green with Energy Star Air Conditioner Efficiency
In 1992 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) started its Energy Star rating program of voluntary labeling of products that met strict energy-efficiency guidelines. Now partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy, the EPA estimates that in the year 2008 alone, this program saved enough energy to avoid the emission of enough greenhouse gases that would be equivalent to those produced by 29 million cars. In addition, it is estimated that customers saved $19 billion in that same year on their utility bills. Since the Energy Star rating was added to home heating and cooling equipment in 1995, and utility costs for heating and cooling amount to about one third of household energy bills each year, this means that homeowners can save a bundle by installing equipment with high air conditioner efficiency ratings.If your home contains a central air conditioning unit that is more than twelve years old, you might want to consider buying a new, rated model. Air conditioning equipment that qualifies to be rated Energy Star has a much higher efficiency rating than older, standard models do. This translates to about a 14% greater efficiency when using the Energy Star model as opposed to a standard model which in turn results in great savings in utility bills and greenhouse gas emissions. Although the initial cost of Energy Star air conditioning units can be greater than that of standard units, the extra cost will be more than offset by lower energy costs during the life of the air conditioner.It's very easy to find out which equipment will be the most efficient for your home. The Consortium for Energy Efficiency and the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute have developed a website that lists air conditioning units that have efficiency ratings which meet the Energy Star guidelines. You will be able to reference this listing online free of charge in order to determine which equipment has the best ratings and will save you the most money in utility costs. Since the cost of utilities continues to skyrocket, installing new equipment that will increase your air conditioner efficiency will result in the most cost-effective cooling in your home.
Degree for Archery Bow Designer?
Degree for Archery Bow Designer?
Definately engineering1. Why did they bow before the hobbits?In the original book, The Return of the King, the only person who bows during the ceremony is Aragorn, to receive the crown2. Why did the three Israelite men not bow down?Their Faith Survived the Crucible SHOULD your devotion be directed to God or to the land in which you live? Many would answer by saying, 'I pay homage to both. I worship God according to the dictates of my religion; at the same time, I pledge allegiance to my homeland.' 2 The line between religious devotion and patriotism might seem blurred today, but in ancient Babylon it was virtually nonexistent. Indeed, the civil and the sacred were so entwined that they were at times indistinguishable. "In ancient Babylon," writes Professor Charles F. Pfeiffer, "the king served as both High Priest and civil ruler. He performed sacrifices and determined the religious life of his subjects." 3 Consider King Nebuchadnezzar. His very name means "O Nebo, Protect the Heir!" Nebo was the Babylonian god of wisdom and agriculture. Nebuchadnezzar was a deeply religious man. As noted earlier, he built and beautified the temples of numerous Babylonian gods and was especially devoted to Marduk, to whom he credited his military victories. It also appears that Nebuchadnezzar relied heavily upon divination to formulate his battle plans.-Ezekiel 21:18-23. 4 Really, a religious spirit pervaded all of Babylon. The city boasted more than 50 temples, at which a vast array of gods and goddesses were worshiped, including the triad of Anu (god of the sky), Enlil (god of the earth, air, and storm), and Ea (god over the waters). Another trinity was made up of Sin (the moon-god), Shamash (the sun-god), and Ishtar (the fertility goddess). Magic, sorcery, and astrology played a prominent role in Babylonian worship. 5 Living amid people who venerated many gods posed a formidable challenge for the Jewish exiles. Centuries earlier, Moses had warned the Israelites that there would be dire consequences if they chose to rebel against the Supreme Lawgiver. Moses told them: "Jehovah will march you and your king whom you will set up over you to a nation whom you have not known, neither you nor your forefathers; and there you will have to serve other gods, of wood and of stone."-Deuteronomy 28:15, 36. 6 The Jews now found themselves in that very predicament. Keeping integrity to Jehovah would be difficult, especially for Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. These four young Hebrews had been specially selected to receive training for governmental service. (Daniel 1:3-5) Remember that they had even been assigned Babylonian names-Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego-likely to influence them to conform to their new environment. The high-profile positions of these men would make any refusal on their part to worship the gods of the land conspicuous-even treasonous.3. What to wear with a lace bow?Well, it depends on how you wear it in your hair! When I first started getting into bows I had the same questions! The main thing is to play around with it, usually you can tell what looks best just by eyeing it. (: If you were to wear it with a bun (you could wear it above, or below the bun) you could wear it with a solid black dress and a cute pair of heels or flats. (For a fancier look) Since it's lace, it would be better if you avoided wearing any tops of the same material because too much texture ends up looking heavy. But, because it's white, you could get away with wearing it with any kind of top and bottom you wanted that did not consist of the same texture. T-shirts, blouses, etc. Shorts, skirts, etc... Your options are endless! Hope this helped!4. What type of bow would be good for a beginner?Take her to an archery shop to get a bow that is properly fitted to her. If at all possible, do not get her one of the one-size-fits-most bow in a box deals. Asking what bow is right for a beginner is like asking what gun is good for a begginer: it depends on the beginner. Most archery shops have an indoor lane where she can test a variety of bows to see which one works best for her. A youth model may well work best for her, given her small frame. Whatever you decide on, make sure there is some room for her to grow. I know she's not very strong now, but archery will develop her strength quickly. I highly recommend a compound bow for a beginner. The expense may be slightly more (and sometimes not), but there are fewer variables to contend with, which results in faster improvement and more enjoyment for the archer.
MSSQL Server Express: How to Reclaim Unused Space
MSSQL Server Express: How to Reclaim Unused Space
As Jason said, if you want the available space back, you'll need to shrink the database.However, you say that SQL reports that there's only 100 MB of unused space. Presumably you're expecting this figure to be higher? If so, how much space would you expect to be able to claim back?Reorganizing (rather than rebuilding) the indexes would take less working space. Have you tried that?.At our company we are using a proprietary third party custom application that uses SQL Server Express as its backend. As you are aware SQL Server Express 2008 has a hard 10GB limit. For the old data in this database, we have a separate database offsite to which we store the data.I am aware that purchasing SQL Server Enterprise would solve this issue, but being a small company, this is not a solution for us at this point in time. We do not need old records to be stored in the live SQL Express database that is being used by the proprietary software. So I can delete the old records from the SQL Express database, but the problem I am experiencing is how to reclaim the space consumed by the old data after deleting this data. I dont want to increase fragmentation by using the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE command. But any command I run, to rebuild the index, or shrink the database or the log files, doesnt reclaim this space. The 10GB database is currently showing less than 100MB of unused space according to sp_spaceused. I appreciate any of your input or help with this issue from one drop of SQL to another.·OTHER ANSWER:At our company we are using a proprietary third party custom application that uses SQL Server Express as its backend.

Where Can I Get a Traffic Cone?
Where Can I Get a Traffic Cone?
Look online. Or even at flea markets. But make sure if you put a cone out there, it wo not be considered a crime.1. If the TSA of a cone and a hemisphere is 858 and the slant height of a cone is 24, what will be its total height?Definitions:Let S be the slant height of the right circular cone. Let R be the radius of the sphere. Let A be the radius of the base of the cone. Let H be the segment of the height of the cone that overlaps with the radius of the sphere. Let theta be the angle between the axis of the cone and the line connecting the sphere's center to a point on the cone's base's circumference. We are looking for the total height h of the structure, given S and the surface area P. I will denote X as the part of P contributed by the sphere and Y as the part of P contributed by the cone. Case A:The sphere lies on top of the cone so that exactly a hemisphere is contributing to the surface area.Case B:The sphere lies on top of the cone so that the cone 's sides are tangent to the sphere. This gives a smoother, more "natural" structure. Answer:Case A:By the Pythagorean theorem, h=RsqrtS^2-R^2 where R=fracsqrtpi^2S^28pi P-pi S4pi.Substituting in S=24 and P=858 for the question, we get Rapprox 7.14 and therefore happrox 30.05.Case B:By the Pythagorean theorem, h=RsqrtS^2R^2 where R satisfies XY=P where X=2pi R^21 cos[arctan(fracSR)] and Y=pi RSsin[arctan(fracSR)]. Substituting in S=24 and P=858 for the question, we get Rapprox 6.77 and therefore happrox 31.71.Reasoning:Note that the surface area (sphere) of an entire sphere is 4pi R^2 and the surface area (cone) of a cone (not including its base) is pi AS.Case A:The surface area of this structure will be the surface area of the hemisphere added to the surface area of the cone (not including its base). X=frac12Area(Sphere)=frac12(4pi R^2)=2pi R^2.nAlso, Y=pi AS=pi RS since A=R in this case.So P=2pi R^2pi RS.Applying the quadratic formula, we have R=fracsqrtpi^2S^28pi P-pi S4pi, which is used in the answer. Case B:Note that tan(theta)=fracSR. So we know that theta=arctan(fracSR), which is a function of only R if S is given.Note that sin(theta)=fracAR. So we know that A=Rsin(theta), which is a function of only R if S is given.Note that H is the remnant of the radius R (overlapping with the cone's height) when its non-overlapping part with the cone is removed. By utilizing the Pythagorean theorem, H=R-sqrtR^2-A^2, which is a function of only R if S is given.The surface area of this structure will be the surface area of the part of the sphere above the cone added to the surface area of the cone (not including its base). Note that X will be the sphere's full surface area but subtracting off the surface area of the Spherical Cap covered by the cone (equals 2pi RH). So P=(4pi R^2-2pi RH)pi AS. Substituting in for A, H, and subsequently theta in this equation, we get one equation with one unknown variable R:P=XY where X=2pi R^21 cos[arctan(fracSR)] and Y=pi RSsin[arctan(fracSR)]. The solution for R in this equation is used in the answer.If the TSA of a cone and a hemisphere is 858 and the slant height of a cone is 24, what will be its total height?.2. If a cone with a height of 16 cm is carved out of a solid sphere with a radius of 10 cm, what will be the radius of the cone?The height of the cone would extend beyond the center of the sphere by 6cm and be the center of the base of the cone. Let's call this 6 cm segment AB. At right angles to this segment to the spheres circumstances would be the radius of the cone's base. Let's call this radius BC. Then from the center of the sphere to the point where the cone's radius meet would be at point C. A right triangle ABC would form with one side 6 cm and the hypotenuse, AC, would be the radius of the sphere. These measurements would constitute at 3-4-5 right triangle. AB = 6, BC = 8 & AC = 10. The radius of the cone, BC = 8 cm is the answer to the question. Q. E. D. If a cone with a height of 16 cm is carved out of a solid sphere with a radius of 10 cm, what will be the radius of the cone?3. Tip of cone $CA=(Atimes I)/(Atimes 0)$ is contained in the interior of $CA$$Atimes ,.5)/ A times 0$ is open in $CA$ by definition of the quotient topology. Since preimage of $Atimes ,.5)/ A times 0$ under the quotient map from $X sqcup CA$ is itself, this then implies that $Atimes ,.5)/ A times 0$ is open in the glued space. This means the tip of the cone is in the interior

I wish my brows were as full as yours.4. Does getting your eyebrow pierced hurt?I had my nose pierced several times, tongue, down there, belly button and my eyebrow. The eyebrow i barely felt it. It did not hurt at all. I did feel when she was tighten the Jewell thou.5. what's the best eyebrow pencil to get?Benefit or urban decay =)6. Shaved upper lip with an eyebrow shaper? IM A GIRL?most people get rid of their moustache by waxing, threading, bleaching or plucking but if using a eyebrow shaping razor works just keep on using it because it probably works if you have already tried it7. What's with my eyebrow piercing? Bloody?Bumps on surface piercings can be caused at any time by the skin moving and being pushed out/adjusted by the ring. This can sometimes result in migration or rejection, but this will not happen if you take care of it and allow it to heal. Soak a cotton ball in hot water and sprinkle a pinch of SEA SALT on it, then hold this down on your piercing like a warm compress. Do this three times a day. This will dry out any bubbles and also the salt and warm water will promote healing. It also would not hurt to go to a local tattoo parlor and ask if their piercer can look at it, they will usually do it for free. P.S. love your picture. Nuclear wessels, keptin! 8. What are the best eyebrow/facial hair bleaches?the sally hansen cream remover works, but when it grows back the hair becomes stubbly. that's why i bleach. jolen works really well for me9. plucked too much from the front of my eyebrow?go to the store and get a color of eyeliner that matches your eyebrow. usually wet 'n wild eyeliner runs about $1 a pencil. and fill it in10. I have eyebrow issues! Someone help?I would suggest just filling them in with a good eye brow kit. I do not think it's possible to make them thicker11. What's the best eyebrow pencil to use?I've been asked to answer, but I really do not consider myself expert. I use Maybelline Master Shape. Having auburn hair, I use the auburn pencil. It's reasonably priced, and does the job of making my eyebrows match my hair (Grey hair? What grey hair?).12. Are you supposed to pluck this part of your eyebrow?look up some brow shaping on youtube. but if it's in the middle of the face like a uno brow then yes pluck it but do not go too far! only in the middle area.13. Are long eyebrow hairs gross on a guy?Yes, they can be creepy14. How much time does it take for an eyebrow to grow back? I accidentally trimmed a slight bit of my eyebrow.Yes. Hair grows about 1/2 an inch every month. While you are waiting for it to grow back you can ask an adult if they have any makeup you can use to fill in the area if it looks uneven from the other side. Powder makeup works if you do not want to go too heavy. Good luck and I hope it grows fast!.15. Help! I accidentally plucked half my eyebrow!?Do not worry to much! (: YES, your eyebrows will grow back. They may become darker but other than that, you will be fine. Depending how fast your body hair grows, (at the head area) The faster your eyebrow hairs will grow back. It will take about a month or so. Hope I helped!!! .
