This is a new post. it is unique from the other post of this blog because it is not that technical post or a paper presentation, book link or a engineering stuff. It is more like a soft skill development lesson. Yes! yes! yes! i know what you think. No time for these articles!?
Engineering is a study were we focus our minds for hours. we are more into concepts and ideas for most of our times. So, I just wanted share this small piece of tip for my readers.
When ever you see a new and interesting titled article, you start reading it with much interest and willingness but as you gradually start understanding the content you think you are done and start feeling bored. Then suddenly your facebook wall seems more interesting to you and you convince yourself that you've understood the article (This happens a lot for me :p), we tend to stop reading that and assume we understood what the poor author tries to convey. Yes! you'd have actually understood it but this causes some huge set backs for our parameters.
Well then why do i want you continue reading that article??
- An increasing number of experts think skimming through a article make us more stupider and say it's time to slow down.
- The interpretation of different writers might be different, towards various issues and concepts. feeling bored and getting lost can happen sometimes but still holding the patience can provide you fruitful results.
- Reading an article completely can give you enormous amount of courage and confidence to share the topic in your group at colleges or work places.
- When you develop the habit of reading the articles completely, you can be a thought

|Guidelines for 8.5x11-inch Proceedings Manuscripts
The abstract is to be in fully-justified italicized text, at the top of the left-hand column as it is here, below the author information. Use the word "Abstract” as the title, in 12-point Times, boldface type, centered relative to the column, initially capitalized. The abstract is to be in 10-point, single-spaced type, and may be up to 3 in. (7.62 cm) long. Leave two blank lines after the abstract, then begin the main text. All manuscripts must be in English.
These guidelines include complete descriptions of the fonts, spacing, and related information for producing your proceedings manuscripts.
A zip-file of this sample manuscript is also available (http://mecha.ee.boun.edu.tr/word2.zip), which you can use as a template to prepare your paper.
Please note that your paper should normally be limited to six pages. A maximum of two additional pages can be used subject to a charge of $100/page.
2. Formatting your paper
All printed material, including text, illustrations, and charts, must be kept within a print area of 6-7/8 inches (17.5 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.54 cm) high. Do not write or print anything outside the print area. All text must be in a two-column format. Columns are to be 3-1/4 inches (8.25 cm) wide, with a 5/16 inch (0.8 cm) space between them. Text must be fully justified.
3. Main title
The main title (on the first page) should begin 1-3/8 inches (3.49 cm) from the top edge of the page, centered, and in Times 14-point, boldface type. Capitalize the first letter of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; do not capitalize articles, coordinate conjunctions, or prepositions (unless the title begins with such a word). Leave two blank lines after the title.
4. Author name(s) and affiliation(s)
Author names and affiliations are to be centered beneath the title and printed in Times 12-point, non-boldface type. Multiple authors may be shown in a two- or three-column format, with their affiliations below their respective names. Affiliations are centered below each author name, italicized, not bold. Include e-mail addresses if possible. Follow the author information by two blank lines before main text.
5. Second and following pages
The second and following pages should begin 1.0 inch (2.54 cm) from the top edge. On all pages, the bottom margin should be 1-1/8 inches (2.86 cm) from the bottom edge of the page for 8.5 x 11-inch paper; for A4 paper, approximately 1-5/8 inches (4.13 cm) from the bottom edge of the page.
6. Type-style and fonts
Wherever Times is specified, Times Roman, or New Times Roman may be used. If neither is available on your word processor, please use the font closest in appearance to Times that you have access to. Please avoid using bit-mapped fonts if possible. True-Type 1 fonts are preferred.
7. Main text
Type your main text in 10-point Times, single-spaced. Do not use double-spacing. All paragraphs should be indented 1 pica (approximately 1/6- or 0.17-inch or 0.422 cm). Be sure your text is fully justified—that is, flush left and flush right. Please do not place any additional blank lines between paragraphs.
Figure and table captions should be 10-point Helvetica (or a similar sans-serif font), boldface. Callouts should be 9-point Helvetica, non-boldface. Initially capitalize only the first word of each figure caption and table title. Figures and tables must be numbered separately. For example: "Figure 1. Database contexts”, "Table 1. Input data”. Figure captions are to be below the figures. Table titles are to be centered above the tables.
8. First-order headings
For example, "1. Introduction”, should be Times 12-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. Use a period (".”) after the heading number, not a colon.
8.1. Second-order headings
As in this heading, they should be Times 11-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one after.
8.1.1. Third-order headings. Third-order headings, as in this paragraph, are discouraged. However, if you must use them, use 10-point Times, boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, preceded by one blank line, followed by a period and your text on the same line.
9. Printing your paper
Print your properly-formatted text on high-quality, 8.5 x 11-inch white printer paper. A4 paper is also acceptable, but please leave the extra 0.5 inch (1.27 cm) at the BOTTOM of the page. If the

Are you feeling bad that you are not good in JAVA and ORACLE?
No problem! says the future of Information technology. Yes, you believe it? your highschool
and college syllabus
C, C++ are going to get their driving seats sooner. There once was a period in which the languages
(C,C++) seemed to die slowly and get replaced by languages like JAVA, RUBY and JAVA SCRIPT. But now the future of these languages looks brighter than any time in the past.
When i read this article in one my favorite blogs, i was soo glad and enthused about the reasons quoted.
- The support for lambdas and closures in the newest C++ standard.
- The uncertainty surrounding Java following Oracle's acquisition of Sun, and the uncertainty around .NET as Microsoft seems to be de-prioritizing it inWindows 8.
- We can't see Microsoft deprecating C# anytime soon, but the Visual C++ team is hard at work and C++ is clearly going to be central to Microsoft's developer strategy in the future.

Only the most hardcore puzzle-solvers ever go beyond the standard 3x3x3 Rubik's cube, attempting much larger ones such as those pictured on the right. Now an algorithm has been developed that can solve a Rubik's cube of any size. It might offer clues to humans trying to deal with these tricky beasts.
Rubik's cube science got a boost last year when a team led by programmer Tomas Rokicki of Palo Alto, California, showed that even the most scrambled standard Rubik's cube can be solved in 20 moves or less. That feat was a big deal: the figure has been dubbed "God's number", the assumption being that the Almighty couldn't solve it faster. But that result didn't shed light on the monster cubes.
So Erik Demaine, a computer scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, set out to find a general algorithm for solving a cube with any side-length – of n squares.
The new approach differs from that of Rokicki's. The latter used a "brute force" method, relying on computers borrowed from Google to check all 43 quintillion possible solutions, but Demaine says doing the same for larger cubes would be impossible. "You can't solve all values of n with computational search," he explains.
Instead, Demaine's team started by looking at a method Rubik's cube enthusiasts commonly use to quickly solve the puzzle. Essentially, you try to move a single square, or "cubie", into the desired position while leaving the rest of the cube as unchanged as possible. Because it's not possible to move a single cubie without disturbing others, this method is time-consuming, requiring a number of moves that is proportional to n2.
Demaine and his colleagues found a short-cut. Each cubie has a particular path that will place it in the correct position. His algorithm looks for cubies that all need to go in the same direction, then moves them at the same time. "We found that instead of solving one cubie at a time, you can parallelise that process and solve several," Demaine says.
Grouping cubies with similar paths reduces the number of moves required by a factor of around log n. This means that the maximum number of moves that will ever be required for a cube of side n is proportional to n

The genetic code common to all life is not set in stone. We can change it at its most fundamental level for our own purposes. Genetic engineers have invented a new way to quickly, precisely and thoroughly rewrite the genome of living bacteria.
The technique could make drug-producing bacteria immune to viruses, prevent laboratory engineered organisms from genetically contaminating wildlife and enable scientists to construct proteins that do not exist in nature.
Farren Isaacs of Yale University led the team that this week proves it is possible to make numerous and very precise changes in the genome of living cells. "In the process we are recoding organisms that could have completely new functionality."
"I think it's a tour de force, one of the top 10 papers of the year," saysFrederick Blattner of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who was not involved in the study. "Even though the genes are essential, they can be altered."
Ultimately, the study paves the way for re-coding the universal genetic code.
Stop sign swap
Isaacs and his colleagues systematically replaced one three-letter sequence in the genome of Escherichia coli with another.
Three-letter genetic sequences are known as codons, and they can either code for an amino acid – the building blocks of proteins – or act as stop signals. A cell's internal machinery reads copies of the genome, and as it goes along it links the corresponding amino acids together into protein strings until it reaches a stop codon.
The researchers sifted through the E. coli genome and identified all 314 TAG stop codons. They then designed fragments of single-stranded DNA that, with the assistance of viral enzymes, would replace the TAG stop codons with TAA, another stop codon.
Isaacs submerged a billion E. coli cells in pools of water brimming with the bits of DNA and viral enzymes, and zapped the mixture with electricity, opening pores in the bacteria's cell membranes for the DNA to pass through. The process is known as multiplex automated genome engineering, or MAGE.
Isaacs then isolated 32 strains from the mixture, each of which had around 10 TAA codons instead of TAG codons at different points in the genome. The next challenge was to combine these partially rewritten genomes into a single genome with 314 TAA stop codons and no TAG codons. How did they do it? Think promiscuous pizzas.
