Grow Like a Garden
Trainer’s Notes for Activity 30
Step 1: Introduce the topic by explaining that leaders try to continually develop their skills so they can be the best leader possible—someone who is fully equipped to lead followers and the entire organization toward their goals. This quote from writer Anais Nin sets the stage:
And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Tell the group, “I will be giving you a metaphor to help you identify how you can develop yourself as a leader. This will be followed by a crafts project that will help you remember your leadership goals.”
Step 2: Provide the group with the garden items.
Step 3: Present the garden metaphor by saying, “Lay out in front of you the garden items, so that as you talk about each item in your metaphor, you can use it as a prop.”
Explain that a metaphor helps us compare two dissimilar objects or ideas in order to understand, such as, “Life is like a lemon, because it can be bitter or sweet.” Ask for other examples of metaphors.See All Chapters

Abstract— This paper describes a variable-grain power gating and suspend-free voltage scaling scheme based on the self-timed pipeline (STP) circuits. The STP operates with its local hand-shake signal so that it does not require the global clock distribution, i.e., centralized control. Therefore, various power supply control for the STP can be naturally localized in both spatial and temporal domains without stopping its effective data transfer, e.g., program execution in case of microprocessors. As a result, the power supply scheme proposed in this paper can efficiently incorporate both commonly used voltage scaling (VS) and power gatingSee All Chapters

Weve casually mentioned that SVG lets you separate a documents structure from its presentation. In this chapter, were going to compare and contrast the two, discuss the presentational aspects of a document in more detail, and then show some of the SVG elements that you can use to make your documents structure clearer, more readable, and easier to maintain.
As we mentioned in Chapter 1, in Section 1.4.2, one of XMLs goals is provide a way to structure data and separate this structure from its visual presentation. Consider the drawing of the cat from that chapter; you recognize it as a cat because of its structure the position and size of the geometric shapes that make up the drawing. If we were to make structural changes, such as shortening the whiskers, rounding the nose, and making the ears longer and rounding their ends, the drawing would become one of a rabbit, no matter what the surface presentation might be. The structure, therefore, tells you what a graphic is.See All Chapters

For a remote and tranquil vacation, you might choose a secluded getaway on the Acklins or Crooked Island. Located almost as far south as you can go in the Out Islands, south of the Tropic of Cancer, beyond Long Island and the Exumas, these islands are accessible only by private boat or regularly scheduled flights on Bahamasair.
Here you'll discover sunswept shores, scenic coves and hidden bays. On Crooked Island there are caves, miles of creeks, tidal flats populated by record tarpon and bonefish. Days on these islands are spent swimming, snorkeling, fishing, visiting tiny churches and historic buildings while you stroll the streets of quaint little towns and villages, such as Snug Corner, Lovely Bay, Delectable Bay Spring Point, Pompey Bay and, on Cat Island, Pittstown Point, Colonel Hill, Landrail Point and Albert Town. In the evening, you'll wander deserted beaches, and enjoy a cool tropical drink as you watch the sun go down in a blaze of glory.
The history of these islands lies hidden in the mists of time; what's known for sure is that English loyalists from Virginia, fleeing the aftermath of the American Revolution, arrived here at the end of the 18th century, bringing with them hundreds of slaves. Soon, more than 40 plantations had been established, but they were short-lived. By 1825, most of them were in ruins, the result of one crop failure after another.See All Chapters
