1/365 Sitting at home on new year’s day, getting close to being January 2nd. I was watching something on TV or just playing around on the computer. I realized that I had thought about doing a 365 and it was nearing midnight. I had been looking at taking a photo of the new tap & die set I had bought awhile ago. This is how it came to be sitting on the end table by my comfy chair. I layed the tap on my tablet screen (yes it has a screen protector on it) and shot this image with my phone’s camera. I put some paper towel between the outer protective case of the phone and the phone covering the flash to diffuse the light as best I could. Cleaned up some scratches and dust that were on my screen protector, turned it into a B&W image and adjusted the contrast a bit. I am pretty impressed with how well this came out.

Airsoft rifles-New chapter to replicated but quality based war tools and weapons
War is a debatable issue. Are wars necessary to maintain peace? Does suppression reduces crimes? Should there be sophisticated and deadly weapons to maintain law and order in the world? Do these weapons keep our society clean from evil forces? Many such questions force us to think deeply on the matter. We teach our children moral values. We impart them moral thoughts and ask them to be good to all human beings. They learn these values readily. They start helping others, who are in need. But a peaceful society, where there is no crime, is an ideal condition, which is not practically possible easily. It is impossible if you try to attain it through nonviolent methods.
The use of weapons certainly scares people and makes them realize the importance of peaceful interaction. Weapons cause destruction, which forces man to think of peaceful means of solving the problem. If you use weapons for maintaining the balance in society, they are very useful. But, on the other hand, if you start using weapons for antisocial activities, it causes more harm than you think. The rising incidences of bank robberies, theft, social crimes, killings etc. are some results of development of modern and sophisticated weapons.
If you want to give the world the message of maintaining peace in society by reducing the use of weapons, Start your campaign from your home. Take airsoft pistols in your hand and come out of your home. Gather in a public park with your friends and give everyone in hand. Then raise your hand in air and take the oath of not using your power for bad acts or evil objectives. It is the time when children should come out of their houses and urge the people to make society safe and secure for everyone.
Every time when you take airsoft rifles in your hand, you start playing the game of cops chasing thief. This time surprise everyone with your peaceful procession in society opposing wars. If you can take the poster of ill effects of war in your hand, it will make everyone living in your local area think about it.
If children are come forward against wars, everyone realize the importance of peace. This time your airsoft weapon will give you another reason to smile by enabling you to play your game in a different manner. All games are about role plays, this time don’t chase the thieves, but come forward in a peaceful march with airsoft rifles in hand.
Software Development Life Cycle -Tools for Transparency
Globalization led business world, depend on the technological innovations to meet the cut throat competition. Customer being the major priority in every business establishment, all the business oriented organizations and corporate houses look forward newer software applications to meet customer demands. However, every software developed indigenously by the organization’s software professionals or outsourced from experts in the field, has a life cycle of its own.
The software development life cycle or SDLC can be defined as the entire process of formal and logical steps taken to develop any software. In other words, it is a process of creating or altering software systems customized as per the models and methodologies of a particular organization. The software development life cycle involves the people, process and technology in its success drive, eases the complexities in the business and enhances the productivity status of the organization.
There are a number of methodologies and models are available to guide the software development lifecycle. Irrespective of being traditional, iterative, waterfall or Agile methodologies these solutions have a flexible workflow and configurable applications and can be customized as per organizational requirements. . Further, SDLC facilitates improvement of requirements management tools for software engineering and development and enhances its quality and efficiency.
The software development life cycle which is also referred under the new nomenclature of Application Lifecycle management, comprises of requirements management tools, test management, risk management, release management and IT project management solutions. Other functions such as configuration management and build management which are functions of the SDLC are achieved through integration of third party tools with the help of the service integration bus adaptors.
The leading service providers in the industry list the strengths of the software development lifecycle as increased productivity with a proven framework for uniform methods, designs and operations. This also ensures timely delivery high quality software through adequate planning, control and total management while maximizing productivity. Being completely web based SDLC solutions facilitates information exchange and team collaborations over the web irrespective of time distance and geographical boundaries with the help of multiple input capturing methods, multiple reporting methods and traceability index.
The key features of the SDLC solutions include ability to trace relationships, multiple capturing methods, and multiple reporting options with automation of processes. However innovations in the technology has paved way for an integration platform or an service integration bus which would provide a platform for integrating standard SDLC tools ensuring transparency across various software development life cycle, macro and micro-level processes automation and clarity in communication across disciplines.
