That's Norm Now

Before swearing off tapes, I left myself one crucial loophole : I wouldn't stop recording tapes, just distributing them. And that's good, because there's no better way to inject hiss and flutter into a recording like old tape. Digital imitations barely come close. So when one of my songs calls for lo-fi, I put some tracks to tape, even if I'm only going to make mp3s out of them later.

Only one problem - not all tape is shit. Sure, we remember casettes for the cruddy, hissy mixtapes we made before they put CD players in our cars. But we made those things from 3rd generation copies, left them in our glovebox on hot summer days, and played them until they wore out. Recording on a fresh casette, however, can produce impressive results. They sound good. Too good. And that's no good. What am I? A musician?

As designers, sometimes we need a little inspiration to get our creative juices flowing. Looking at examples of different user interface patterns could give us the ideas we need to design something amazing. That's why I put together four of the best user interface design pattern libraries around the web. I have searched and looked at dozens. But these four, I believe, offer the best examples with the best navigations for browsing. The first two offer patterns only. The last two offer patterns with explanations on how to use each pattern.

If you want to combine a number spicket of strings into a single string and save it to a variable, you can do that with the capture tag. This tag is a block which "captures" whatever is rendered inside it, then assigns the captured value to the given variable instead of rendering it to the screen.

A few years ago, I started having trouble helping my son with his first-grade homework. I’m a data-journalism professor at Temple University, and when my son asked me for help on a worksheet one day, I ran into an epistemological dilemma. My own general knowledge (and the Internet) told me there were many possible “correct” answers. However, only one of these answers would get him full credit on the assignment.

“ I did not hit her, it's not true, it's bullshit, I did not hit her. I did not. Oh hi Mark.”

From the bucolic Highlands to the fisheries of the Delaware Valley to the power of the Great Falls to the family fun of the Jersey Shore our state is one of the most water rich areas in the United States. Stapler's water resources were and continue to be essential to the quality of life, economic vibrancy and history of our state. As New Jersey grew to become the most densely populated and heavily industrialized state in the nation, water quality in our lakes, streams and bays began to significantly deteriorate. In 1915 leaders in State Department of Health recognized the importance of providing a means for professionals in the emerging sewage treatment industry to come together to share in the latest scientific findings and newest technologies. To accomplish that goal a new organization was created, The NJ Sewerage Works Association charged with the responsibility of expanding and sharing knowledge about water quality and waste water treatment.

RedCloth is a module for using the Textile markup language in Ruby. Textile is a simple text format that can be converted to HTML, eliminating the need to use HTML directly to create documents, blogs, or web pages. Textile gives you readable text while you’re writing and beautiful text for your readers. If you need to break out into HTML, Textile allows you to do so easily.

As simple a question as this may be, it isn’t so easy to answer empirically. That's because alcohol is legal, widely available, relatively cheap, and for the most part society smiles upon it — whereas marijuana is generally illegal, less easily available, and often frowned upon. This, of course, is changing, as more places are legalizing marijuana (Colorado and Washington State in the U.S.; Portugal, meanwhile, decriminalized many drugs not long ago.) That said, there is a lot more data on alcohol use than marijuana use, simply because of alcohol’s prevalence.

To help him understand the problem I used this analogy: “Let's say you’re asking me to write something in a specific language, I am fluent in English and Spanish. Meanwhile, your project is in Chinese. Since I don’t know Chinese and it is not remotely similar to any of the languages I know, I am not your best option for this project. You need someone who is fluent in this specific language for the project to be successful and stay on budget.”

Even more copy.
