In case one of your party does not show up at camp when night falls as has previously been his custom, do not get excited and do not do a thing until 6:00 P.M. If you start signaling before 6:00 P.M. other hunters who have not gotten into camp are likely to butt in and make it very misleading.
Eat your supper and see that the lantern is full of oil. Then go outside with rifle, lantern and flashlight. At exactly 6:00 P.M. fire two shots. Listen a moment for a reply. Not hearing any, walk about one-quarter mile and repeat your signal. If you get a reply, see a fire or note any odor of smoke, continue the signals, always walking in the general direction that you believe your man is located.
In the meantime what is the “lost” hunter to do? If, in late afternoon, he realizes that he is lost or so far from camp that he can not get in, he selects a sheltered spot where dry wood is handy, starts a fire and collects a lot of wood before dark. At exactly 6:00 P.M. he listens for a signal. On hearing it, he answers and the signals continue the same as in the daytime. Hearing no signal he wastes none of his shells but pounds a signal at regular intervals with a club on a sound dead tree. If there is no dead tree available, select a live tree and peel off a spot of bark where he wants to pound.

Abstract— Synchronous gestures have an intention to solve the sharing problems between mobile devices. It is always tedious for users to share their ﬁles with nearby users without wireless access points. We propose synchronous gestures to provide an interaction interface to connect users’ mobile devices . Those gestures include Pinch, which can be used to connect devices and share ﬁles between two devices, and
DragAndPress, which enables one-to-many communication.
We identify the general requirements of those gestures and implement a prototype system allowing users to share digital objects. Our approach is secure, has no bezel issues, and require no centralized servers or additional equipments.
Keywords: mobile devices; synchronous gestures; spontaneous device sharing; co-located collaboration
CatechismGod’s laws let us know the acts that lead to eternal happiness and those acts that turn us away from him and his love (cf. no. 1950).
Imagine if there were no traffic laws. People wouldn’t have to stop at stop signs or red lights. They could go any speed on any road. They wouldn’t have to wear seat belts. The roads would not be a very safe place! Good laws are a blessing. They promote life for all of us and help us enjoy good relationships with others. A law is a rule of conduct made by a lawful authority for the common good. A good law never goes against the law of God. Just as cities and nations have laws, God has given us laws to guide us, protect us, and lead us to eternal happiness.
All of us have natural law written in our hearts. This is how we are able to tell the difference between good and evil. For example, even if your parents hadn’t taught you it was wrong to steal, you would still have a sense that stealing is wrong. Natural law is the same for every person, of every time and place, and it never changes. It binds the human family together and is the foundation for our moral choices.
