CHAPTER 20 Not God’s Will

Slice ePub May 28, 2014

For weeks after their return from Ville Marie, Kateri and Marie Therese spoke of nothing else but their visit to the sisters. They were both ablaze with new ideas and plans.

“Kateri,” Marie Therese exclaimed one day, “why can’t we start our own convent somewhere near the village? We could live apart from the others, and pray and work as do the sisters in Ville Marie. By selling our belts and moccasins, we would have the means to help others, especially those who are poor or sick.”

“That’s a wonderful idea, Marie Therese, but maybe we should ask someone else to join us, someone who knows more about how to be a sister.”

Marie Therese thought for a moment and then said, “I know who—Marie Skarichions (ska-LEE-shoos). She’s older and used to live at the mission called Our Lady of Loretto in Quebec.”

The three women met to discuss their plans. As Marie Therese had thought, Marie Skarichions’s acquaintance with the nuns in Quebec had given her a practical knowledge of convent life.

“Now we must decide where our convent should be,” concluded Marie Therese enthusiastically.

3. Development Platform

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

T his chapter looks at the tools and systems used to build applications throughout the rest of the book. I'm assuming that you have some basic familiarity with building Java applications already. You should be familiar with basic object-oriented development, know how to add libraries to your class path,[1] understand TCP/IP and basic networking, and be familiar with basic JSP-based web application development. You don't need to be familiar with Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) or other J2EE technologies, such as Java Message Service (JMS).

The sample applications demonstrate the easiest mechanisms for accessing web services. This book isn't concerned with the persistence layer of the application. It's up to you to decide the best mechanism for saving data. You may want to store your data on the filesystem or in a relational database, using any of a variety of APIs such as JDBC or Java Data Objects (JDO).

We will use Java exclusively (specifically, all examples are built and tested on Windows XP Professional, Java Version 1.4.2_03). If you don't already have Java 1.4.2 or later installed, please visit, and download and install the J2SE 1.4 SDK. You may be offered the opportunity to download the NetBeans integrated development environment (IDE) bundled with the SDK; if you don't already have a Java development environment, this is an excellent choice (the free, open source Eclipse,, is another excellent, free Java IDE).

Lesson 3

Making Money

♠ A Card Game (for Two or More Players)

The goal of this game is to increase the value of your investment. First, you toss the number cube. Then you draw a card and follow directions.


Deck of event cards (on the next page), tally sheet, one number cube.


1. Title each column on the tally sheet with the name of one player.

Write $1,000 under each name. This is the amount of money that each player starts with in a special investment account.

2. Player 1 tosses the number cube, picks the next card off the deck, and follows the directions: Replace x on the card with the number showing on the number cube. Make the calculation on the amount in your special investment account, as directed by the card. Write this new value in as the next entry under your name on the tally sheet.

This is the new amount in your special investment account.

3. Players take turns tossing the number cube, picking the next card off the deck, and following the directions. The other players check the calculations.

2. The Challenge: Transferring Learning to Behavior

Chapter 2

The Challenge: Transferring

Learning to Behavior

I (Jim) began working for First Indiana Bank in 1997 after several years as a management and career consultant. My boss is Marni McKinney,

Chairman of First Indiana Bank and CEO of First Indiana Corporation. When I first started, she told me, “Jim, when you plan and conduct training, please make sure that participants find it worthwhile and want to come back for more.”

In 1998 she asked me, “How do you think our training is going? I surely hope people are not only enjoying it, but are learning something!” And in 2000 she said, “You know, our people are spending a lot of time in training. I would really like to know if they are able to apply what they are learning.”

Two years ago (2002), she said, “As you know, we have great responsibility to our shareholders to meet our financial goals for 2003 and beyond. I need to be able to see how training is impacting the bottom line. I don’t want people spending a lot of time away from their jobs in activities that are not directly contributing to positive results.”
