Travel Website Design

Travel is an online business. We all do online research before taking a vacation. Since some of us will spend hours researching a trip before finally booking it on a travel website, design is critical.

Which trip gets reserved is influenced by the website’s photography, writing and navigation. More so than most industries, web design is absolutely crucial to the travel business.

Here are a few of the key elements for travel website design:

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

Text can only go so far in describing a travel experience. Pictures make all the difference because showing is better than telling. A great travel site has easy to use photo galleries with big, beautiful pictures.

Getting your best photography onto the site and keeping those galleries up-to-date doesn t have to be a big job. We typically integrate Flickr galleries right on web pages which makes it easy to add and change photos. Photoshop is not necessary.

Navigation for Navigators

People looking to travel are going to start with an idea. Some may be browsing for a specific type of trip (river cruise, kayaking, etc.) while others may be looking at specific dates (i.e. February). Still others are considering going to a specific destination such as the Grand Canyon, but all of these visitors are goal-oriented. This type of visitor is frustrated by not finding thle right information easily. This is why travel web design must offer several ways to navigate such as by date, location, activity, cost, etc.

Austin-Lehman s travel website gives visitors lots of navigation options. Visitors can explore the site in several ways. Whether it is by destination or by date, a person can quickly find relevant information and make a decision about a trip. The site is inviting and conveys a sense of adventure as if the trip has already begun.

Style and Theme

There are millions of terrible travel sites so design is a chance to quickly set your business apart. The design should be easy to use for visitors, look fantastic and be easy to update and maintain. Additionally the overall design should match the theme and tone of the travel experience.

Will it be romantic, adventurous or family-friendly? In the first split second a visitor will start forming an opinion about the site based mostly on the design. The design is a chance to convey the actual vacation experience to the visitor. A great travel web design has personality.

For example if you love to fish, you re going to love You know that you re in the right place, because the design relays that message to you. Next you re getting pulled into the photos. You re browsing deeper and deeper on the site. Soon you find you re not just looking at Alaska, you re thinking about Costa Rica. You re going wherever the fish are biting.

Reserve Online (or quick contact)

Once a site has done a good job of building up interest, the next step is absolutely critical: convert the visitors into leads and the leads into customers.

The site needs to make it very easy to take action and book online. At a minimum, the site should convert the visitor into a qualified lead and then you can call to discuss the details. Consequently your site should be ready to take the reservation the instant a person is ready to click submit. If there is any friction between the visitor and the final confirmation receipt page, the visitor may abandon the site entirely.

Sports Traveler helps sports fan go anywhere in the world to see a game. There are hundreds of pages of up-to-date information for sporting events worldwide. Once the visitor s questions are answered and the research is done, then the site expertly funnels the visitor into booking the trip online. The site even connects automatically to inventory systems to ensure the process is efficient and accurate. This type of experience means their visitors are guaranteed to be on time for kick-off.

Tracking and Statistics

Visitors to travel websites have high expectations and this type of demand means constantly evolving travel sites. So be ready to adapt, but don t make changes without good information. Make sure analytics are set up to track where you re getting site traffic. Evaluate what kinds of visitors are turning into leads. Investigate if visitors are having problems with the booking process. Add more information to the popular pages of the site and promote (or consider changing) the less popular areas.

In short, people who are planning a vacation are excited and looking forward to going on a trip. The time spent researching and booking the trip should be an easy decision and not an adventure.

Trail Design #how #to #use #wordpress #for #website #design






If you are in search of a premier trail design, trail construction, or trail maintenance company, chances are many of the paths you go down lead you right back to Trail Design Specialists. That’s because with over 20 years in the business, we’ve set the gold standard for trail building.

At Trail Design Specialists, we believe in leaving nature’s aesthetics in tact while simultaneously creating safe, durable, and sustainable horse, mountain bike, hiking, and multi-use trails. Our experienced staff take everything into account when designing your trail, starting with the trail users’ perspective all the way through implementing an appropriate design that pre-empts the trail’s anticipated future use and natural erosion patterns. Our goal is to create trails that give users an opportunity to observe nature at its finest, provide what users have come to expect of a trail, and design the trail to remain durable for extended periods of use with minimal maintenance.

Our Mission Statement

At Trail Design Specialists, our mission is to create trails that accentuate your area’s natural offerings, provide trail users with the opportunity to observe nature at its finest, and preserve our environment for future generations. We also believe it is important to help our clients realize substantial long-term cost savings by constructing trails that remain durable for extended periods of time and require minimal maintenance efforts.

Our experience in working in so many different environments, soil types and uses has given us the insight to create unique trails that will endure the test of time.


Last week was a big week for the Raven Trail. On Wednesday we got our Ditch Witch 650 and then we had the IMBA Trail Care Crew over the weekend. The Lakeland Area Mountain Bikers Organization (LAMBO) is fired up and has had 7 straight Monday work nights and has even attracted some of their (our) antagonists to help out. Now LAMBO wants to sign up with us as a formal friends group, which offers both of us some benefits. And it all started with your visit last fall and design for improvements. So if you’re wondering if the work you do ever leads to anything, you should think about the Raven Trail in northern Wisconsin and know that you started an avalanche of progress here. Thank you,
Steve Petersen, Superintendent, Northern Highland – American Legion State Forest

    • In-State Tuition Regardless of Residency

    What Is Instructional Design?

    The field of Instructional Design (ID) lies at the intersection of three disciplines:

    It first began during World War II when the military needed to develop effective training for large numbers of soldiers in order to save lives and equipment. By drawing from the known body of established research and theory in these disciplines, experts developed a model for ensuring effective training and learning, regardless of discipline, learners or environment.

    • From psychology, they drew the best of what is known about how humans learn and develop.
    • From communications, they drew from all that is known about message design and communication.
    • From education, they pulled from all that is known about how people learn in formal and informal settings.

    Instructional design grew out of this process, and today there are at least 40 different ID models used in education, corporate and government settings. All models share the same underlying process of Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation, also known as the ADDIE process.

    Online Graduate Certificate: Instructional Design Technology (IDT)

    UND College of Education Human Development’s online Instructional Design Technology (IDT) Graduate Certificate prepares you for service in education, business, government and industry by teaching you how to enhance instruction and learning through the use of technology.

    With UND’s online IDT Graduate Certificate program, you will:

    • study the latest technology and its uses for teaching and learning
    • use a process that is part science and part art to develop effective instruction, whether that is for the corporate training room or the public school classroom
    • analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate technology-based instruction that is effective and reflects sound ID principles
    • develop computer-based instruction, multimedia, web-based instruction, video-based instruction, and even simulations and games for learning
    • design learning for anyone, any time, on any topic and in any format

    You also may pursue a fully-online Master’s Degree in Instructional Design Technology by completing 34 to 36 credits of master’s coursework.

    Engineered stone, such as Cambria. unites the beauty of quartz with advanced technology to make a beautiful, long-lasting, and easy-to-care-for counter. Cambria comes in nearly 100 colors and patterns, and unlike other manufacturers, every color is the same cost. Both scratch-resistant and heat-resistant, Cambria is as hard as, or harder than natural stone. It is non-porous and therefore does not have to be sealed periodically like granite or marble. Cambria comes in solid colors as well as patterns that make it look like natural stone. I think you should consider Cambria when looking at counter options.

    25 of the Best Law Firm Website Designs #website #design #for

    # Injury lawyers websites

    What can a person do if he or she is injured for reasons beyond their control? Well, finding a personal injury lawyer is a good first step. A good personal injury lawyer will be able to tell if a person has a valid case, and using this information the lawyer can make a case. A good personal injury lawyer will be able to collect a fair amount of money to cover medical bills, possible pain and suffering, lost employment, and a variety of other things.

    I know I m late in looking at this post, but I m here now and I just had to comment on your selection. There are a few nice sites included. Thank you. But I found many of them to be just plain cheesy as well as poorly designed (e.g. eye paths all over the place, poor color contrast, too small fonts, not enough white-space, etc). To top it off, I did a random inspection and hit on 4 (there may be more) of them built on tables. TABLES A much outdated development practice. Are you sure you couldn t find anything better? Maybe you ll do a reprise this year and we ll see if attorneys have gotten any smarter when it comes to picking website designers. Celexa Injury Lawyers

    Not all websites with lawyers are boring. If they have a good designer the site can be amazing.

    Welcome to Open Campus! #mcse, #mct, #mcp, #microsoft #certified, #systems #engineer,


    Our Mission.

    The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

    • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
    • Professional development and training for faculty
    • Expertise and experience
    • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

    As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

    What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

    Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

    Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

    Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

    In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

    Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

    Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

    Where Do I Start?

    For more information about Blackboard and support, visit
    Students page

    Secured by Design

    Building Secured by Design Creates Value

    Nottingham City Homes, in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, conducted a two-year impact study on the wider social benefits of the Decent Homes programme known in Nottingham as Secure, Warm, Modern. The first stage of the research was to conduct a pilot study on two estates, which aimed to evaluate the impact of installing secure windows and doors on burglary in NCH properties, and the impact on residents and surrounding communities. The work programme took place in 2008/09, during which 1,520 properties had their windows replaced out of a total of 1,717 NCH properties on the two estates.

    Levels of crime, and particularly burglary, have in the past been high across Nottingham, and particular in the two estates chosen for the pilot. The area has seen higher burglary rates than the city average, and higher than similar areas within the city.

    Key Findings

    • Burglary was reduced by 42% across Bells Lane and Broxtowe, compared to a city wide reduction of 21% over the same period. This was also higher than the reduction seen in similar areas in the city, of 38%.
    • NCH properties experienced 62 fewer burglaries per year after the work was completed, compared to 33 fewer burglaries a year to non- NCH properties on the estates
    • Tenants perceived burglary to be less of an issue after the Secure work was completed and overall satisfaction with their neighbourhood as a place to live rose from 58% of tenants being fairly or very satisfied to 64% since the work was completed.


    To increase security further, a priority investment for any future resources that may be made available for further housing improvement should be the widespread replacement of the current wooden doors with Secured by Design PVC-u models.

    Key Success

    • Burglary was reduced by 42%
    • Resulted in a saving of £241,800 in 1 year
    • Each tenant saved between £95 and £223 a year in fuel bills
    • SBD to be made a priority investment for housing improvements

    Web Design Sample Business Plan #services, #service #description, #sales #literature, #fulfillment,


    Plan Outline

    Web Design Business Plan

    Ibrio Inc. is a full-service Internet solutions provider for small businesses. We focus mainly on the Web, offering the following as our key ‘Bread Butter’ website services:

    • Design and development.
    • Marketing and analysis.
    • Hosting and maintenance.

    We currently offer the following secondary services:

    • E-commerce development.
    • Website renovations and upgrades.
    • Application development (i.e. chatrooms, message boards, online polling, live-feed audio/video, etc.).
    • Website maintenance training.
    • Internet/website education seminars.
    • Database construction.

    We have plans to offer the following services within the next year:

    • Internet access service for small businesses.
    • Local Area Network (LAN) installation.
    • Intranet setup and installation.
    • Result-based website marketing.

    3.1 Service Description

    Website Design and Development: The service that we offer to small businesses is modeled after the service that larger Web development firms offer Fortune 1000 companies in the sense that it is completely customized and unique to each individual client.

    Website Marketing and Analysis: After we build the website for our client, or a new client introduces us to their pre-existing site, we offer this service. As experts of the Web, we can analyze and test a website based on an established set of standards that account for the website’s aesthetic value, scalability, functionality, ease-of-use, and main customer base. After an analysis has been made, we then explore and present to the client a detailed list of the most efficient Internet marketing tools and methods available to them within the constraints of their budget. This type of service is pertinent to our company given the fact that a very large percentage of our clients are on a tight budget and can only afford to take advantage of marketing efforts that are targeted directly at their desired demographic.

    Website Hosting and Maintenance: This service is offered for two reasons. The first reason is because they are both ongoing, continual services that we can use to establish and maintain a strong residual income. The second reason for offering these services is to allow for packaging together with other services either Ibrio Inc. offers, or services an outside company can provide, hence allowing us to expand our range of small business Internet services.

    3.2 Sales Literature

    Ibrio Inc. currently distributes a sales folder with all the pertinent information about our company and services. This folder includes our strong points, history, portfolio examples, and pricing packages info. It also contains facts based on the growth and popularity of the Internet for small businesses.

    Ibrio Inc. currently operates and maintains a fully-functioning website that provides information about the company, plus a variety of helpful resources for small business owners which we will be constantly updating.

    In the next six months, we plan to produce and distribute bulk mail and fax flyers promoting our Web development and hosting services to small businesses in Central PA to solicit new business.

    We have plans to offer a more compact version of our main sales folder in a brochure format. This brochure will be available both as a mailer to interested parties and as a sales solicitation in area businesses.

    3.3 Fulfillment

    For the website design, development, marketing, analysis, and maintenance we will employ industry professionals to handle our clients’ needs. Working for the company presently is Brandon Andrews, a professional website development engineer and strategist with four years of experience in the commercial Web development industry. To keep employee costs low, we have designed a “team” development system that will consist of two full-time sales people and three full-time Web developers. Of the Web developers, one position will be filled by a highly-qualified senior Web professional and two lesser-qualified, lower paid developers. All three will work full-time on separate projects provided to them by the sales people. However, the senior developer will have the duty of maintaining the same high quality level of work in the junior developers’ projects, that our clients have learned to expect from us now.

    For the website hosting services we offer, Ibrio Inc. has formed several alliances with industry leaders to provide top-rate, reliable hosting solutions. Forming the alliances has allowed us much flexibility in important hosting features, customizability, and it has drove costs down dramatically. All these benefits are crucial to preserving the integrity of our company as being a ‘fully-rounded Internet solutions provider’ for small businesses.

    3.4 Technology

    It is a given that technology and keeping up with new innovations strongly influence our business. We operate a Windows® based Local Area Network (LAN) in the office that is equipped with the most current software and hardware tools available to meet our project requirements. Within the next year, we will be investing in additional tools that will extend our capabilities in handling various types of program files (i.e. Macintosh computers, large capacity data storage, and high-end image scanners). We also have plans to purchase licensing agreements with our major software vendors to allow for automatic upgrades in new software tools.

    Currently we own and operate both a professional digital and film camera for the purpose of offering on-site and in-house product and business photography to our clients. We would like to improve upon these services in the near future by purchasing a more complete photography system, it has been our experience that this is a service many small businesses are recognizing as a crucial part of their online marketing efforts and would take advantage of it were we to offer such a service.

    3.5 Future Services

    Local Area Network Installation: These days, a quickly increasing number of small businesses are using computers as a necessary tool in the everyday operations of the company. We would like to be able to expand our current services to meet this new demand. We will handle every aspect of setting up a small business with an internal network of computers from purchasing, installing, and configuring the machines to software integration and educating the employees on proper usage and operating functions.

    Intranet Setup Installation: In our plan, after developing an Internet website for outside marketing purposes, we would like to offer the service of implementing the website into the network for use in all the business day-to-day operations. This would include extensive product/service cataloging, vital employee and management information, sharing of accounting and inventory details, etc. all intended for strictly company uses.

    Internet Access for Small Business: This feature would act as another residual, packageable service. We would target small businesses exclusively allowing us to provide more flexibility and affordability to our clients through discounted high volume rates, value added service packages, and much more aggressive technical support services.

    Result-based Marketing: This is a service that no small business can turn down. We have plans to offer aggressive, intensified marketing services with the fees based solely on results. To achieve this, we are in the process of forming multiple partnerships and alliances with industry specific Internet websites and various other software and service-oriented companies that provide specific marketing services and tools based on results achieved. We feel as though offering this rare service will dramatically increase our portfolio of clients.

    Accessing the host file system from a Docker container on OS

    Accessing the host file system from a Docker container on OS X or Windows

    21 December 2015

    Mounting (or sharing) a directory from the Docker daemon host into a container is simple enough. Example:

    However, on OS X and Windows, the Docker daemon (currently) runs inside of a Linux VM, that by default is run using VirtualBox. (Since Docker only runs natively on Linux) So, you d be mounting a folder from the Linux VM. which is probably not what you want if you want to share files from your host machine into the container.

    Thankfully, VirtualBox allows sharing of folders from your host machine into the VM where the Docker daemon resides. The Docker Linux VM is also auto-configured to mount either /Users (OS X) or C:\Users (Windows) into /Users on the Linux VM:

    This means we can mount /Users from the Linux VM into a container, allowing it access to your underlying host/physical system s files in /Users (OS X) or C:\Users (Windows).

    Here s an example I used when playing around with the TensorFlow Docker image :

    This mounted /Users (from the local host file system) into /host/Users. so I had access to source code files I was editing. (You could also make the container mount the file system as read-only by appending :ro to the -v argument.)

    To share other directories on your host system, you d just need to add those to the Shared Folders for the VirtualBox Linux VM, then use another -v argument to the docker command to mount them into the container.

    Note that with this method you re going through two levels of mounting/sharing: From the ultimate host system to the Linux VM (via VirtualBox s shared folders) and then from the Linux VM to the container. The first is likely to have a performance impact, so I wouldn t use it in production. Then again, for production you should probably be using the native Linux version of Docker.

    Good Evening Madam/Sir,

    ask ko lang po kung pwede ako sa course na yan kahit di po
    ako High School Graduate. Nag wowork po ako as Layout Artist
    actually may experienced na po ako. Gusto ko lang po madagdagan kaalaman ko, tulad po ng sinabi ko wala po ako educational background at gusto ko din po makakuha ng CERTIFICATE as Layout Artist/Graphic Designer.

    Maraming salamat po. Hintayin ko po response nyo.

    Different schools and courses have different requirements, so it s best if you ll check with the school or training center that offers the course to see if they require a high school diploma prior to admission.

    On a side note, if you need a high school diploma but do not have the time or means to finish high school the traditional way, you might want to check our articles on the Alternative Learning System program to see if it will work for you.

    Thanks for visiting our site.

    You can use this tool from TESDA to locate the nearest school that offer a particular course. Just type in the name of the course you want then click “search.”

    As for the tuition fee, we’re sorry but we have no available information regarding the tuition fees for the different TESDA courses. You can find the list of schools/training centers that offer this course on the link above, though. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

    Thanks for visiting our site.

    Thanks for visiting our site.

    Thanks for visiting our site.

    There are currently no schools or training centers listed on the list of institutions authorized by TESDA to offer Visual Graphic Design NC III in Pampanga. We’re not sure if the list is updated, though, so you might want to check with the TESDA office nearest to be sure. While you re at it, it will also be best if you ll have them confirm the duration of the training so they can give you an accurate response.

    Good evening po,

    I m currently residing in baguio city. and I would like to ask what are the coverage of the exams, because I will be having my assessment test late this October. Assuming that the subjects offered here will be the same materials for the test, I m just making extra sure by asking you po if there will be more.

    because, when i registered there was no coverage given to me.
    thank you

    Live Home 3D – Home Design Software for Mac and Windows


    Live Home 3D

    Intuitive Home Design Software

    Live Home 3D, a successor of Live Interior 3D, is the powerful yet intuitive home design software that lets you build the house of your dreams right on your Mac or Windows. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a homeowner who is planning some upcoming home improvements or a professional interior designer trying to bridge the gap between ideas and visualization. Live Home 3D can help you.

    Work in 2D and 3D Environment

    Live Home 3D helps you to draft detailed 2D floor plans and automatically build the structure in 3D. You can trace the imported floor plan or start from scratch using the program smart tools.

    Apply Materials and Add Furniture

    You can design and decorate the interior by optimizing the furniture arrangement and making smart color decisions. Live Home 3D turns the process of room decoration into fun.

    Rich Object Collections

    You can choose from a built-in library of couches, chairs, kitchen sets, appliances, doors, and other items. What’s more, integration with Trimble 3D Warehouse allows you to download thousands of free 3D models from the online storage.

    Results You Can Use

    Make changes to your home design project and share the results with clients, colleagues, friends, and family. Set up a custom camera angle and export the view to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and BMP. Render a 3D video walkthrough and share on YouTube or Vimeo. Create 360° Panorama JPEG images or 360° videos.

    Create 2D Floor Plans

    Start your interior design project by drawing a 2D floor plan with intuitive, point-and-click drafting tools. Measure out rooms and walls in just a couple of clicks. Add furniture, doors and windows. Set cameras and movie tracks to shoot the interior design views.

    Wall Drawing Tools

    Draw floor plans using Straight Wall, Arc Wall or Room drawing tools.

    Floor Plan Representation

    Add furniture and building elements. Change the room representation from outline to raster and apply materials right on the plan.

    Working With Objects

    Objects and building elements added to a floor plan can be easily resized and rotated using handles.

    Floor Plan Import

    Import an image file of a floor plan and trace it by using advanced Dimension tool.

    Cameras and Video Export

    Set a custom camera to return to it with just one click or map out a path on your floor plan to render a video walkthrough.

    Real-Time 3D Rendering

    Switch views in order to see and walk around the structure in 3D. Make changes to your home design project in easy drag-and-drop workflow. Arrange furniture, paint walls, adjust the lighting, and build in a realistic, beautiful, real-time 3D environment.

    Take a stroll through your interior to examine every aspect of it from different points of view.

    Drag and drop furniture, doors, windows, and other objects from the Library. Place them into the desired position and apply the materials.

    Boolean 3D Operations

    The software offers an advanced technique for intersecting building elements (openings, wall panels, floors, etc.).

    Easily change the brightness and color of any light fixture to achieve the desired scene. Light up your interior by changing the time of day and house geo position.

    Put a roof over your head using one of 12 customizable roof templates and 16 dormers.

    Furniture and Material Collections

    Figure out the furniture arrangement and color scheme of any room before lifting a single finger or ordering paint. Drag and drop furniture, decorations, doors, and more from our library of over 1,500 objects and easily change the fabrics, colors, and finishes using over 2,100 included materials.

    Choose from over 2,100 included materials, or create your own by importing a photo. Expand your material Library with Extras Pack purchase.

    Apply materials in 2D or 3D by dragging and dropping them from the Library. Set the exact size of a material tile to know how much of the material is needed for your house renovation.

    Choose from a rich library of couches, chairs, kitchen sets, appliances, doors, and other items. Expand your collection with Extras Pack 2 purchase.

    Trimble 3D Warehouse

    Seamlessly download objects from the Trimble 3D Warehouse , or import models of your own in COLLADA, FBX and 3DS formats.

    New in Version 3

    Export Options

    Your work lives both inside and outside of Live Home 3D. You can make changes in the app and share the results with clients, colleagues, friends, and family.

    Floor Plans, Screenshots and Video

    You will be able to export a floor plan in PDF, JPEG, 360° Panorama JPEG, TIFF, PNG or BMP file format. You can also export a snapshot of your interior view to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and BMP. It is easy to set a camera path and to record a 3D video walkthrough of the project, including 360° videos for sharing on Facebook or Youtube.

    Share Options

    Share the home design you created on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo or other social networks. Export the project or some parts of it as a 3D model.

    At any time during this process, you can switch to a realtime 3D view of the space you’re designing to experience your choices first hand and evaluate how things look before you go through the expense of building them.

    I truly wish that we had Live Home 3D at the beginning of our remodel journey because it would have been a lot easier and less time consuming than fiddling around with the online ‘options’.

    Are you going to move into a new apartment or planning to build a whole new house? Then Live Home 3D is exactly what you need.

    Top 10 Dance Videos on YouTube – Web Design Schools Guide


    Top 10 Dance Videos on YouTube

    How did we get through the work day before YouTube? What did we talk about before we spread viral videos? YouTube is a life-saver when it comes to finding ways to waste time that feel somehow productive, and it s probably because some of the best videos on the social site feature people doing something impressive that most other people can t do. And by watching these videos, it s almost like we re taking part in the art and not just looking for ways to pass the time. But that could just be wild speculation; maybe the point of watching something like an awesome dance video is just to watch an awesome dance video and add a little pep in your day. While you try to decide which it is, give these dance videos a look. They re famous for a reason. (And no, before you go looking, Evolution of Dance didn t make the cut. Too overdone.)

    1. Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather . The 1943 musical Stormy Weather was one of the few from the era to give a prominent role to black musicians and performers. This clip featuring a glorious tap routine from Harold and Fayard Nicholas is as jaw-dropping today as it was when the film was released.
  • Insane Robot Dance . This is sick. At first it feels like a pretty typical student talent show, with young boys doing some solid robot moves. But then a kid in a red shirt starts dancing around the 0:45 mark and just blows the doors off.
  • JK Wedding Entrance Dance . Yes, it s been seen by everyone, and yes, it s more than a little weird to dance down the aisle to a song by a guy guilty of domestic violence. But the video remains one of the best dance clips on YouTube for the genuine and infectious joy evident throughout. The men and women involved aren t great dancers, they re just happy to be celebrating a wedding. Who can t get behind that?
  • Train Station Dance (Belgium) Sound of Music . Many of the most popular flash mob videos are just highly choreographed commercials (this one s for a reality show ), but that doesn t make them any less entertaining. This clip used a remix of Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music to win the crowd.
  • Flawless . This dance troupe performance from Britain s Got Talent is your typical story of struggling artists making good on a national stage, and their moves are some of the best you ll see on a competition show.
  • Wedding Thriller Dance . Everyone from high schoolers to Filipino prisoners have uploaded videos of themselves performing the Thriller dance, but this wedding reception rendition is one of the best.
  • Fast Swing Dancing ULHS 2006 . The contestants in the 2006 Ultimate Lindy Hop Competition are better at dancing than you or I will ever be. There s no other way to say it.
  • Dancing at the Movies . This four-minute supercut of great dancing moments from the movies is completely entertaining. Plus it s set to Kenny Loggins Footloose, and if that doesn t make you move your feet, you are probably dead inside.
  • Amazing Coordinated Samsung Dance . The amazing thing about this massively choreographed group dance is that it stops feeling like people dancing and starts feeling like one single animated piece of art that s started to move on its own. Plus, the dancers seem to somehow multiply around 0:55, which will blow your mind.
  • The T-Mobile Dance . Again, even though it s a cannily manufactured ad designed to go viral, this group dance video sponsored by T-Mobile is undeniably entertaining and just plain fun. Great moves, fantastic crowd reactions, and total skill from the dancers. That s how you do it.

    Top Graphic Design Schools in Georgia #graphic #design #schools #in #atlanta


    Top Graphic Design Schools in Georgia | GA

    The opportunities for graphic designers are multitudinous, and they expand over a multiplicity of industries and markets. This means that a career in graphic design has a lot to offer. One of the most important decisions for an individual who is looking to build a career in this field will make is choosing the school that is best for them. It is vital for students to understand that all certification programs are not created equal. Additionally, finding a program that is ideal for the type of training that will facilitate a specific area of graphic design that they are interested in is paramount.

    List of Graphic Design Schools in Georgia

    Finding an Accredited Graphic Design Institution in Georgia

    A student should be prepared to conduct a significant amount of research when vetting training programs for graphic design. Potential employers will place a great deal of gravity on the level of accreditation of any program that a potential employee has undergone, meaning that proper accreditation is immensely important; however, it is not the only consideration when vetting a graphic design class. A student should also evaluate the areas of specialization to ensure that the program is a proper fit for the area of graphic design in which they wish to enter.

    Graphic Design Certification in Georgia

    There are different levels of certification in the area of graphic design in Georgia. Some institutions provide comprehensive degree courses, while others offer certificates of completion and diplomas. Depending on the depth of the work that a student will be seeking, they will have to choose the course that is right for them.

    One factor that may pay a role in this decision making process is tuition. Most schools will have some form of financial aid that can be used to finance the classes.

    Salaries for Graphic Design Jobs in Georgia

    The salaries that a graphic design specialist can expect in Georgia will depend greatly on the location and the company. In major metropolitan cities, such as Atlanta, a graphic designer can expect a median salary of $51,385, with a top range of nearly $65,000. Smaller cities, such as Roswell will have a slightly lower median; however, the top-end salary range is comparable with metropolitan cities.

    The cookie cutter approach does not work with identifying the school that will be right for a specific individual. Each of these schools offer a unique approach to their teaching philosophies and areas of specialization. It will be important for the student to identify the training program that is best suited for them.

    While building my business, I could not have imagined how crutial a website would possibly be. I did my research and recieved multiple bids from dozens of potential website companies. I chose in the end because of their endless resourses, the quality of their existing websites and the personability of their staff. From the inital contact, the web development managerwas professional and was able to answer my questions and concerns efficantly and with great knowledge of the field.

    Throughout the actual production of my site,’s staff was there to hold my hand every step of the way. While I completly believe in my business model, I am not versed on the technical sides of web design/production. I couldn’t have imagined how much work goes into making a website. The production team were completely at my disposal, making sure I understood what was going on and how each step is completed.

    As I look forward to the future I have complete confidence in and what they can do for my business ventures. I have already began working with them on building my next website.

    I have been dealing with HBCWeb for over one year on my various internet sites. I have found them to be very knowledgable, accomodating, communicative and their services are reasonably priced and work produced on time. It has been a pleasure doing business with HBCweb.

    I really appreciate all of your hard work on this project. I am very proud of the product before us. Thanks for being able to translate my thoughts into a tangible design. And most of all, thanks for being good at what you do! Looking at your portfolio only says so much; Witnessing firsthand your mastery of web design gives me better understanding and a much greater respect for what you do. I have been extremely impressed with your level of expertise and professionalism throughout this process.

    Integrating an e-commerce site with an airline reservation system is no small feat, but hbcweb made it look easy. From initial development of our website, to updates and special projects, we rely on hbcweb, and they always get it done on time and on budget. Of the hundreds of vendors we work with, they’re one of the best.

    The Priceline Partner Network team were a sincere pleasure to work with. Redesigning our site was a major initiative for us and I know we made the right decision by going with HBCWeb. Their deep experience with travel sites, exceptional client service and design capabilities all provided for a successful outcome to our redesign initiative.

    Lights out management of a NetApp FAS2020 #inside #tfg, #tips #and


    Lights out management of a NetApp FAS2020

    Posted in Inside TFG. Tips and Tricks

    Our DEVOPS team manage a NetApp FAS2020 filer for a customer, and recently our network monitoring systems began reporting an issue connecting to the device s BMC (Board Management Controller). This is the independent processor that provides the lowest level access to the system. In theory, if everything was to break and the machine was to blow up, we should be able to log into the BMC and find out what is going on. It s an entirely separate computer tasked with providing a (secure!) back-door to the system in case of catastrophic failure.

    Even though NetApp has a phenomenal reputation at a technical seminar last year, a sales engineer said that no NetApp customer has ever lost data due to a hardware failure I still don t feel comfortable without access to the BMC.

    Access to the BMC (on other NetApp devices the LOM controller is called a Remote Management Controller, or RMC) is via SSH, using naroot as the username. From here you can move up the chain to a system console, and use CTRL-G to move down the chain back to the BMC.

    The filer also allows management via SSH directly, and not through the BMC. I used this shell to restart the BMC.

    ilca-netapp bmc help status
    bmc status
    – Display status for a Baseboard Managment Controller (BMC).
    ilca-netapp bmc help reboot
    bmc reboot
    – Reboot the Baseboard Managment Controller (BMC)
    ilca-netapp bmc reboot
    ilca-netapp The BMC rebooted successfully

    It looks like the SSH daemon was simply hung (it had an uptime of 270+ days prior to the reboot) and restarting the BMC through the management console in this way corrected the issues the monitoring systems were reporting.
