Happy New Year

What I learnt from the book: The Power of your subconscious mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy

For as a person thinketh in his subconscious mind, so is he. ~ Dr Joseph Murphy

These are just my learning, please read the book and collect your leanings as well.

Initially, when I started this book and went through a few chapters, I thought it was just another book. But the more I went deeper and covered other chapters, I realized this is a life-changing book and has more advice on how to do better in life with positive attitude.

The book is all about how you train your subconscious mind and be positive in all situations so that the entire universe will help you to meet your goals.

Some of the great points I collected from the books are :

  1. Look within for the answer to your heart’s desire.
  2. You have the capacity to choose. Choose LIFE! Choose LOVE! Choose HEALTH!
  3. Think good and good follows.
  4. Motion and emotion must balance.
  5. You will get results for your prayers.
  6. Your desire is your prayer. Ask and it shall be given you.
  7. The basis of all healing is a change of belief.
  8. Imagination is your most powerful faculty.
  9. When trying to steal from others, you rob yourself of peace, harmony, faith, honesty, integrity, goodwill and confidence.
  10. YOU MUST GIVE TO RECEIVE
  11. The real things in life are intangible.
  12. Your desire must benefit humanity, you should not be selfish.
  13. What you are seeking is also seeking you
  14. There is no one to change but yourself.
  15. Thought, emotion, reaction, and action all take place in your own mind.
  16. The true meaning of forgiveness is to forgive yourself.
  17. Do the things you are afraid to do.
  18. You are as valuable as you think you are.
  19. You can not see life, but you know you are alive.
  20. The harmony of the part is the harmony of the whole; for the whole is in the part and the part is in the whole.

What you are seeking is also seeking you. ~ Dr. Joseph Murphy

Thank you for your time. Happy New Year 2018.

#3 MS-Office Gyan for the day: OCR in OneNote

 

onenote

Optical Character Recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic conversion of scanned or photoed images of typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded/computer-readable text.

 

I tried exploring the OCR and other features of Microsoft One Note and its really cool. I might present in a layman style but believe me its awesome tool for your day to day notes. Just take a look how I explored One Note.

 

If you are using One Note get the One Note  apps for free from http://www.onenote.com/

 

Just open your OneNote and create your Tab and your page… yes all set. This is a simple note taking application but the capabilities what One Note has is mind-blowing.

Select the Insert menu and take a look at the Ribbon. Lets try couple of feature. We will start with the OCR.

We will read text from an image!!! Cool …Right. Lets do it.

 

Copy Text From Picture

image

Here I have inserted one of my picture where some quotes are there. I will try extracting the text from the picture. Its just two step.

 

 

image

Right click on the picture & select  “copy Text From Picture”  and when you are ready “paste your text any where”.

image

 

Now you try with various picture and explore the power of One Note.

Screen Clipping

How about taking screen shot in a  quick and effective way with time stamp. Now I am not talking about that old “Print Screen” method of taking screen print and paste it and then write timestamp by your own. Lets see how One Note helps.

 

imageSelect the Insert menu and select “Screen Clipping” and then suddenly you see One Note will disappear and will go to the background. Its giving a chance to you to capture a portion of the screen you are interested for. (next time Try the keys (Shift+ Windows + s) for a twist.)

image

 

Now once you select one area OneNote will take that portion and will paste in the text area of OneNote with a time stamp which reads like “Screen clipping taken <Date>”. I took a screen capture from my blog.

 

 

 

 

Now a task for you , If you have a scanner attached try the other option “Scanned Images”

HTML5 Session with BDOTNET (Part I)

clip_image001HTML5_Logo_512

BDOTNET the user group in Bangalore have just started a series of session on HTML5. Last Saturday (1st September 2012) it was kick started with two beginners or Level 100 session by two all time great speakers Amar Nityananda and Lohith G N.

 

Windows to Go by Vinod

As the first 5 minutes are dedicated to “Quick Learning Session”, Vinod kumar From Microsoft  took us through the “Windows to go”. Windows To Go is an enterprise feature of Windows® 8 that enables the creation of a Windows To Go workspace that can be booted from a USB-connected external drive on PCs that meet the Windows 7 or Windows 8 certification requirements, regardless of the operating system running on the PC.

 

HTML5 – What you need to know by amar

 

Amar Nityananda started with answering couple of questions to set the platform for HTML5.

What is HTML 5?

HTML5 is a markup language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard (created in 1990 and standardized as HTML4 as of 1997) and, is still under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices

 

HTML 5 = new markup + CSS 3 + JavaScript

clip_image004use the features that’s most widely supported

clip_image004graceful degradation – don’t alienate users

 

Frameworks Available

New elements in HTML5

Doctype

The DOCTYPE or the DTD is much easier now its only

<!DOCTYPE html>

Now you don’t need a third party plugins for MULTIMEDIA

video

<video id="myVideo" controls>
<source src="videos/video.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
<!–- insert sorry message here or fall back to SL/Flash -->

</video> 

Audio

<audio src="audio.mp3" id="audioTag" autoplay controls>
<!-- Only shown when browser doesn’t support audio -->
<!-- You could embed Flash or Silverlight audio here --> 
</audio> 

 

SVG

Its just XML so it can be Scriptable, extensible, easily editable. An example of SVG http://slides.html5rocks.com/#svg-example-slide

Canvas

Using Javascript this is an easiest way to draw graphics. Most of the browsers are capbale of the 2D capabilities of the canvas.

example: http://www.williammalone.com/articles/html5-canvas-example/

GeoLocations

Check this how easily you can find the location http://html5demos.com/geo

CSS3

The best thing I like about the new CSS3 is the rounded border Smile. The other cool features are CSS3 colours, Shadows, Backgrounds, media queries , selectors etc.

Borders
div.top { 
border-radius: 152px 304px 228px 152px; 
border-style: double; 
border-width: 42px; 
padding: 12px; 
}
