How To Use An Article Directory

Anonymous Coward writes | about 5 months ago

An anonymous reader writes "An article directory is a type of web site that organizes articles, sometimes referred to as content, into categories and ways that make them easier to find. An article directory may also include an article search engine that lets you find articles of interest to you.

Some kinds of article directory help you to find articles that have been published in print media. You may be able to search by media, for example, newspaper articles, or by topic

Other types of article directory let you find articles that are available for repeat, reproduction, or purchase. For example, if your PTA is doing a newsletter and you want an article about first aid, you can search an online article directory to find one that is suitable for you to use. Other types of article directory help you to find content that you can add to a web site, which will interest people who visit your web site to look at your products and would like more information on related subjects. For instance, if your primary business is selling sewing supplies, you might want to add content about different kinds of fabrics. If you cannot afford to commission original content, an article directory may help you find content that you can reproduce, or to which you can link.

Some article directory sources are actually article distribution services. You can submit an article you have written to such a directory, either for free distribution or with the hope of getting paid when your work is used.

Students should be aware that using an article directory to find articles they could copy for school reports is not a good idea. Many schools today use software that can check to see if your work is plagiarized. Teachers are also very good at recognizing your normal language patterns and can usually tell when you are trying to pass off as your own something that another person has written."

Agile versus Waterfall Methodology: Which is Best for your Project?

vindil (3389791) writes | about 5 months ago

0

vindil (3389791) writes "Which is better, waterfall or agile approach, in a given situation?

The waterfall method is most appropriate when there is a very clear picture of the end product, when you clearly want to thwart the ability for stakeholders to make changes, and when the project definition versus speed is most important to success. Agile is better when speed is of utmost importance, requirements may change or evolve, and a degree of flexibility regarding the end product is needed.

There is an additional challenge, however, with the long lead times inherent in the waterfall approach. The problem is that managing scope over time is much more difficult than managing it within short, well-defined timeframes. Longer timeframes mean competing priorities and a changing landscape — because things change over time!

What I am getting at is that sometimes a combination of politics and management can nudge the project scope in different directions. Authority can destabilize or change, and that moment of agreement to move forward on something is fleeting. The types of things that can get in the way when you have long timeframes include somebody's pet project, an idea for a demo with a purpose a bit outside the scope of the project, etc.

It is for this reason that I think an agile approach should be considered at least for portions of all projects. It can keep the project in line with its true purpose and more easily deflect distractions. Plus, the agile and waterfall methods are not mutually exclusive; a modified approach that incorporates the appropriate elements from each can be the most effective way forward."

These were by no means expensive nor exclusive apartments and the apartments I had seemed to be pretty much the norm. I guess some parts of Europe have bigger issues with modern conveniences than other parts. Kind of like how elevators are things to be used in some parts and things to be ignored in others.

Re:Since CC defines the purpose of K-12 education

CodeBuster (516420) writes | about 5 months ago

Vouchers have turned into a blatant corporate cash grab.

Would you say that the supermarket or the gas station or any other businesses that provide goods and services to millions every day are a "blatant cash grab"? Of course not. The very notion is absurd. Money is simply the medium of exchange in any advanced economy, nothing more and nothing less. Are the various tutoring centers or cram schools or other businesses that supply the education market a "blatant cash grab" or could it be that the people paying for those services, frequently out of their own pockets, are satisfied with what they have received in exchange for their money?

The private school system does not have the capacity for a huge influx of students

When there is demand, you will see how fast the market responds. Unlike government, which hems and haws and drags its feet, the private sector rolls up its sleeves and gets to work earning a profit and profit can be a powerful motivator. I'll bet it got you out of bed this morning. But as any businessman will tell you, profit is never guaranteed. It must be earned by satisfying the customer and in the case of vouchers the customer is the parent.

so charter schools are setup and either run by clueless parent groups who are underfunded and end up folding unexpectedly

If you don't think that parents can be demanding or care about what their children are or aren't learning, just ask any teacher. Parents have high expectations and they're hard to satisfy. How many times have teachers heard an exasperated parent exclaim, "My taxes pay your salary!" Clearly parents want value for their education dollar, whether that dollar comes indirectly from taxes or directly out of their own pockets, and they're vocal when they feel that they aren't receiving it. However, even if we accept that not every last parent is like this, why should we prevent a solid majority of involved and interested parents from being advocates for the best interests of their children? Who cares more about it than them? The government run schools and the teachers unions they serve have set themselves up in opposition to the real customers, the parents, and instead made themselves the customers of the politicians who control the purse strings. The best way to solve that is to put the education purse back into the hands of the parents, where it belongs, and not those of the corrupt politicians and their teachers union clients.

or they are run by corporate groups whose only interest is that fat voucher cash

And how best to get that cash? By satisfying the customers of course. It's called competition. Look it up. If one corporation pleases the parents more by providing a better quality education to their children at a lower price, where do you think the parents will send their children to school? Free enterprise and competition ensure high quality at the best possible price. The competent operators are rewarded with large enrollments and lots of voucher cash while the incompetent are driven out of the business. Thus the market rewards virtue and punishes failure, unlike the teachers unions which reward failure and punish virtue.

Schools are a community resource

One that's often underutilized and producing poor returns for the owners, aka the people who live in the community and whose taxes funded the creation of the school in the first place. These people are right to demand accountability, transparency and better results when they aren't receiving them, as indeed they aren't in many places here in the United States.

The problems we need to fix are community problems.

In my opinion, the problems that exist are best solved by submitting the schools and the people who work there to the discipline of the marketplace, just like what the rest of us. We please our customers every day or we're out of business. Why should it be different with our schools?

I don't think that strong central oversite is a bad thing

How about oversight from thousands of miles away in Washington DC, over what's essentially a local matter, by people who don't know you, don't live in your community, don't see the results of their policies and frankly don't give a damn about you personally? Compare and contrast with a business that takes your money directly, asks you directly how it can help you and does its best to satisfy you the customer every time you show up? I can tell you which model I prefer, but I think you already know which one that is.

communities need to communicate with other communities or they stagnate.

And free markets facilitate that communication best, at least as far as it concerns the efficient production of goods and services, education included. The free market allows people on opposite sides of the globe, who don't know and may even hate each other, to cooperate effectively in the efficient production of goods and services that profit those involved. It ensures rapid and thorough dissemination of knowledge and techniques that work and are profitable, whether they be methods of educating students or oilfield operations or chip fabrication or just about any other useful knowledge.
