Google Maps’ driving directions answer that question, but driving directions are not (yet) accessible to the developer’s API. More importantly, they simply give driving distances assuming the optimal route, where optimal is defined as getting there as quickly as possible in an automobile. They are not optimized for “scenic drive” or “safest bicycle route” or “quiet stroll” or “jog around the park.”</p><p>There are at least two sites that allow you to create routes and calculate distances by clicking on maps. The Gmaps Pedometer at gmapPedometer/ shown in Figure 2-6 estimates cumulative distance—and even includes a calorie counter.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362024-google-maps-hacks">See more</a>

3. What You Can Sync

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>When you want to start syncing, you must consider both the kinds of information you want to sync and the devices between which you want to sync.</p><p>Managed information is what Sync Services was created to handle. Managed Information and Sync Services lists many of the kinds of managed information that Sync Services syncs, along with some of the applications on your Mac that can host it. It can't be a complete list because any third-party developer can take advantage of Sync Services, and new sync-aware applications are introduced all the time.</p><p>Table3-1.Managed Information and Sync Services</p><p>Type</p><p>Hosting Applications</p><p>Bookmarks</p><p>Safari</p><p>Calendar/Appointments</p><p>iCal, Entourage, Google Calendar, SOHO Organizer</p><p>Contacts</p><p>Address Book, Entourage, SOHO Organizer, Yahoo and Google contacts</p><p>Dock items, Dashboard widgets, application preferences</p><p>Leopard itself, various applications</p><p>Email settings</p><p>Mail (only mail rules, accounts, and smart mailboxes)</p><p>Keychains</p><p>Keychain Access</p><p>Notes, clippings, PDFs, Web archives, and URLs</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362372-take-control-of-syncing-data-in-leopard">See more</a>

Handling Stress

Slice PDF January 13, 2001
<p>name</p><p>_________________________________________</p><p>date ____________________________</p><p>Handling Stress</p><p>According to the dictionary, stress is some kind of “strain, pressure, or tension.”</p><p>We all have stress in our lives. Although we tend to think of it in a negative way, stress is not necessarily bad. Some people perform well under stress. Olympic racers, for example, usually run their record times when going for the gold rather than in practice. Experts believe our attitudes toward stress—rather than the pressures themselves—make all the difference. The way we handle stress makes it either a friend or a foe. Do you see stress as a terrible problem or as a fact of life? The following dos and don’ts might help you deal with stress in a positive way.</p><p>• Don’t blame others for your problems.</p><p>Focus on solutions rather than looking for a place to lay guilt.</p><p>• Do avoid self-pity and the “poor-me” attitude.</p><p>• Relax and meditate. You’ll be surprised how you can let your feelings go.</p><p>• Try physical exercise to get rid of stress energy. Experts believe that exercise releases a body chemical called serotonin which gives you a feeling of well-being.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/434088-reading-comprehension-nonfiction-2-ebook">See more</a>

<p>It is comparatively easy to discover the defense mechanisms to which the ego habitually resorts, so long as each is employed separately and only in conflict with some specific danger. When we find denial, we know that it is a reaction to external danger; when repression takes place, the ego is struggling with instinctual stimuli. The strong outward resemblance between inhibition and ego restriction makes it less certain whether these processes are part of an external or an internal conflict. The matter is still more intricate when defensive measures are combined or when the same mechanism is employed sometimes against an internal and ‘ sometimes against an external force. We have an excellent illustration of both these complications in the process of identification. Since it is one of the factors in the development of the superego, it contributes to the mastery of instinct. But, as I hope to show in what follows, there are occasions when it combines with other mechanisms to form one of the ego’s most potent weapons in its dealings with external objects which arouse its anxiety.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/249648-the-ego-and-the-mechanisms-of-defence">See more</a>

2. Creating a Solid Foundation

Slice ePub February 24, 2015
<p>Jason Strimpel</p><p>Before learning about and developing web components, there are a few things that you should consider. Some of these considerations are not unique to web components, but rather are important aspects of software design and frontend engineering in general.</p><p>In this chapter we will be constructing a base class widget, <em>Voltron</em>. This widget will be used to construct a dialog widget that will be iteratively built throughout this book as new concepts are introduced. The purpose of this base widget is to provide a standard that can be leveraged for the construction of a DOM library, irrespective of the interface—JavaScript widget, pure web component, Polymer, etc.</p><p>In theory, the DOM and its API provide a good interface for working with an HTML document. However, in practice it can be a very frustrating interface. This is especially true across browsers. In his book <em>Learning JavaScript Design Patterns</em> (O’Reilly), Addy Osmani describes how jQuery abstracts away the details of element selection, specifically selecting elements by class name. It accomplishes this by providing a convenient facade, its query selector API. Selecting an element by class name can be done in one of three ways, and the method selected is dependent upon what the browser running jQuery supports. jQuery hides these details and automatically selects the most efficient method. In addition to abstracting away these types of details, a good DOM library provides convenient APIs for common traversal and manipulation use cases.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/825490-developing-web-components">See more</a>
