How to Learn About Java


Steps:
1.Contact a local university or community college. Many colleges offer programming packages that include Java and other programming languages, as well as Web design.
2.Log on to the Web site of Sun Microsystems, the company that created Java, to find tutorials and examples of Java programming.
3.Purchase a comprehensive book about Java. A good Java book will include an outline of Java history, an explanation of how it works, exam-ples and worksheets; some even come with interactive CD-ROMs.
4.Sign up for an online Java course. The HTML Writer’s Guild (www.hwg.org) is one potential source.
5.Search the Internet for some of the many user groups, forums and Web sites dedicated to Java.
6.Consider learning JavaScript, used in Web browsers. Unrelated to Java, JavaScript is an interpreted language. JavaScript is easier to learn but more limited than Java.
7.If you’re serious about programming, read books or take classes on general skills such as developing algorithms and designing data structures. 
Tips:
Java applets are small applications written in Java. Applets are typically attached to Web pages.
One of Java’s strengths is that it is platform-independent. Java programs can run on various operating systems, as long as the computer running the pro-gram has a Java virtual machine installed to interpret the standard Java byte code into code that will run on that system. 
Warnings: Use another’s source code only to learn. Using parts of someone else’s Web page as your own is copyright infringement. Once you have learned HTML, you can create your own pages.   

How to Stretch Your Lower Calves Before Nordic Skiing


Steps:
1.Stand a little more than an arm's length from a solid object such as a wall or tree.
2.Place your palms flat against the surface.
3.Step forward with your left leg.
4.Keep your right heel on the ground.
5.Lean forward to increase the stretching tension in your calf. Step farther back if you don't feel your calf stretching.
6.Let your hips sink down toward the ground to stretch your calf muscle more.
7.Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds.
8.Repeat the procedure with the opposite leg. 
Tips: Stretching after working out should help reduce stiffness later on. 

How to Cultivate Earthworms


Steps:
1.Encourage worms to make your garden beds their home. Bury organic matter annually - and dried eggshells whenever you have some - and use organic nitrogen fertilizers.
2.Use a "vermicomposter," or worm condominium, to grow worms and harvest their nutritious castings for your garden in about three months. Check out commercial models or make your own.
3.Get a heavy-duty plastic storage box with a top - one about a foot deep and 15 by 20 inches in size will do nicely. Cut two vent holes in the top and find a sheltered spot for the box in the garage or garden.
4.Fashion a grid for the box bottom to make a trap space under the worm bedding. Recycle a plastic one or put in plastic pipe or wood pieces, then cover the grid with window screening.
5.Fill the box with bedding for the worms to eat: Shredded paper or cardboard is all they need. Moisten the bedding - avoid drenching it - and put in red wriggler worms.
6.Feed your worms daily. They'll eat their weight in bedding and food each day. Bury green kitchen trimmings, grass clippings, coffee grounds and dried eggshells in the bedding.
7.Keep the vented top on the box to retain essential moisture and return any escaping worms to the bedding. Harvest rich brown worm castings in about three months.  
Tips:
Worms can take temperatures from 10 to 90 degrees F but will be more productive in moderate conditions.
Sprinkle a small amount of water on bedding that becomes dry, but avoid overwetting.
Vermicompost only red wriggler worms for best results. Buy them at a bait shop or organic gardening supplier. 

How to Play Doubles in Badminton


Steps:
1.Decide in advance what formation, or combination of formations, you will use - discuss this in terms of your overall strategy.
2.Choose between a side-by-side formation, an up-and-back formation, or a rotation formation.
3.Use the side-by-side formation when your team is in a defensive position. Both teammates stand at midcourt, following a lifted return that puts your opponents on the attack.
4.Use the up-and-back formation when you are on the attack. One teammate covers the front, trying to get the smash shot off a weak return; the other covers the backcourt, to handle clear shots.
5.Use a rotation formation to recover from difficult shots that drive you out of position. Each time one partner moves, the other adjusts on the diagonal.
6.Use verbal communication until you and your partner understand each other well. After playing for a while with the same partner, this should become less necessary.
7.Serve short serves, unless your opponent is expecting them. Deep serves invite an attack.
8.Rush the serve when returning serves. Attack.
9.Crouch low when the shuttle is behind you so that your partner can more easily hit over your head. Keep your eyes forward and trust your partner. 
Tips:
Play against your opponents' weaknesses. If one player is weaker than the other, hit primarily to him or her.
A good doubles partnership of average players should be able to beat an average partnership of good players. 
Warnings: Be very careful not to whack your partner with your racket. No point is worth losing your partner to injury. 

How to Stand in First Position When Fencing


Steps:
1.Position the leading foot in the middle of the strip on the line of direction, so that it points directly at the adversary's leading foot.
2.Place the rear foot at a right angle to the leading foot with heels touching.
3.Stand erect with legs together, head up and forward, and eyes on the adversary.
4.Keep shoulders level and down.
5.Hold the weapon with the guard slightly below the belt line and the blade directed on a diagonal downward and toward the rear, as though it were in a scabbard.
6.Place the unarmed hand on the rear hip, fingers together and in front and thumb rearward (when not holding a mask).
7.When in first position, carry the mask under the rear arm with the mask facing forward and the hand curved under the chin. 
Tips: Also assume first position for brief rests and at the conclusion of a lesson, assault or bout, before the final salute is rendered. 
Overall Warnings: Fencing is an inherently dangerous activity that can result in serious injury. We recommend that you seek proper training and equipment before attempting this activity. 

How to Secure and Stow a Sailboat in Water


Steps:
1.Tie dock lines at the bow and stern. If the boat is in a slip, tie bow and stern lines on both sides.
2.Lengthen dock lines by tying them at extreme angles in areas of high tidal range if you are not on a floating dock. For example, tie stern lines to opposite docks to lengthen them.
3.Tie spring lines to keep the boat from moving forward and aft.
4.Secure and adjust fenders to the spots where the boat comes into closest contact with the docks.
5.Remove, fold and bag non-furling foresails.
6.Lower, stow and cover the mainsail. Otherwise, remove and fold it.
7.Secure the main halyard and coil the standing end.
8.Furl or lower the foresail.
9.Secure and stow furling lines and sheets to prevent them from flying free in high winds.
1..Untie the jib sheets on boats without roller furling.
1..Stow and secure loose gear below deck, including winch handles, binoculars and sunscreen.
1..Turn off instruments at the main panel.
1..Turn off the main power switch.
1..Remove food items from the icebox. Wash the box with soapy water and leave the lid open.
1..Clean the head and saloon area. Leave interior doors open or ajar to provide maximum air circulation throughout the interior of the boat.
1..Close and lock companionway hatch.
1..Wash the boat with fresh water to remove any salt residue or dirt.
1..Make one final check before you leave. 
Tips:
Proper stowing gives you a chance to inspect your gear. Many sailors discover safety-related problems during the process.
If everything is properly stowed, you will be ready for a quick getaway next trip. 
Warnings: If novice crew members helped you tie the boat, check all dock lines and cleat knots before leaving. 

How to Build a Simple Reinforced Wood Retaining Wall


Steps:
1.Figure out where and why you want a wall: at the bottom of a gentle slope to create a new planting bed? Between two beds to provide contour and definition? (If the answer to this is "to keep my house from sliding down the hill" see Warnings below.)
2.Use a trowel, shovel or grub axe to chop out the cut (a combination of ditch and ledge) where your wall will start.
3.Cut 4-by-4 posts to a length equal to the height of your wall plus the amount they will be sunk into the ground; your building code will tell you how far they need to be sunk.
4.Dig holes for 4-by-4 posts at the inside base of your wall every 4 feet.
5.Lower the 4-by-4 posts into the holes.
6.Pour concrete around the posts to ground level.
7.Level the concrete. Allow to dry and cure for a week.
8.Cut boards (or buy pre-cut boards) - 2-by-6s or 2-by-12s are a good choice - to fit the length of your wall. For example, if you're building an 8-foot wall, you'll have sunk three posts - two 8 feet apart and one in the middle (at the 4-foot mark) - so you'll want to use boards that are 8 feet long. If the wall requires more than one length of board to reach from end to end, you'll need to measure carefully so that they'll meet in the middle of a post where they can be bolted for stability.
9.Bolt boards to posts using carriage bolts, placing the boards on the outside of the post (use at least two bolts per board-post intersection).
10.Dig a couple of 2-inch diameter tunnels under the wall for drainage using a trowel or screwdriver.
11.Fill the drainage holes with gravel.
12.Backfill the cut - the area behind the wall - with at least 6 inches of gravel at the bottom for drainage. Fill the remaining space with soil to the top. 
Tips: If your yard's got drainage problems, you're probably best off consulting a contractor. Whatever you do, make sure water doesn't drain toward the foundation of your house. 
Warnings: A retaining wall is like a dam: the higher the wall and the heavier the soil behind it, the greater the pressure on the wall. Most retaining walls over 3 feet (2 feet in some areas) are thus subject to some kind of permitting process; this is taken more seriously in areas of seismic activity (where walls must be able to withstand shock loads in addition to everything else). Check your local regulations before you start.   

How to Teach a Toddler Number Recognition


Steps:
1.Observe your toddler at play. Your toddler will begin to recognize that there are a number of different toys, colors, sizes and shapes in your house. Grab onto the teachable moment by explaining the significance of numbers.
2.Make a poster with the numbers 1 through 10 on it. Tape the poster to a wall in a room your child plays in often. Refer to the poster when you observe your child noticing a number of similar objects. Say things like, "Do you have two blocks? I see that you have three blue cups. Do you see one red sock?" Point to the poster and show your child the number you are talking about.
3.Count out loud when playing with your child. If you are stacking blocks, count them as you stack. If you are marching to music, count the steps you take. If you are eating raisins, count the raisins when you put them in your mouth.
4.Play number games in the bathtub. Using a plastic shovel and pail, count the number of water scoops you pour into the pail. Blow bubbles and count the bubbles. Count fingers and toes as you wash them.
5.Point out numbers you see when you are driving, shopping or taking a walk. There are numbers everywhere in your neighborhood. Point them out to your toddler, and praise your toddler for pointing out numbers to you.
6.Buy toys that have numbers on them. Puzzles, toy phones, number mats, books - the list is endless. Think about your child's education as well as entertainment when you buy toys. Toys that allow your toddler to actually touch and feel the shape and curvature of the number will help your toddler notice the physical differences between numbers.
7.Discuss the numbers on toys and make up silly games to play with them. Take a soft foam number and throw it in the air. Scream the name of the number when you throw it up. Anything you do when you are playing to draw attention to numbers will enhance your child's number recognition skills. 
Tips:
Praise your toddler often for trying to count and recall numbers. Remember that your child is learning a new skill. Don't be critical of mistakes.
Purchase an educational video about numbers for your toddler to watch. There are some great ones out there.
When you are coloring, draw numbers, and name them as you draw them.
If your child recognizes a number but gives it the wrong name, correct your child by saying something like, "Yes, I see a four. You are good at pointing out numbers."
Show your toddler the differences and similarities of the numbers nine and six by turning them upside down over and over again while saying, "Now it's a six, now it's a nine." 
Warnings:
Your toddler will have a short attention span. Don't force your toddler to continue a game if he or she wants to move to something else.
Engage your toddler in learning while you are playing. Trying to get your child to sit down and listen to a lesson on numbers will prove frustrating to you and the child.
Consult your family doctor if you experience extreme frustration or anger when interacting with your child.   

How to Treat Hypertension


Steps:
1.See your family doctor, cardiologist or internist, who will examine the blood vessels in your eyes to check for damage to the retinal vessels. This will tell her how much damage the high blood pressure has done to the vessels in the rest of your body.
2.Get an EKG to determine if your heart muscle or coronary arteries have been damaged by the high blood pressure.
3.Take any medications your doctor prescribes, usually a diuretic or an anti-hypertensive drug.
4.Know that diuretics reduce your circulating blood volume, which decreases the workload on your heart and blood vessels. Anti-hypertensive drugs help dilate the blood vessels. If the medications cause you to gain more than 2 pounds, tell your doctor.
5.Lose weight if you're overweight. Eat a low-fat, high-fiber diet, rich in fruits and vegetables. It's OK to use salt in moderation, unless your doctor orders otherwise, but no more than 2,300mg per day.
6.Drink alcohol in moderation.
7.Exercise aerobically. Walk for 30 to 45 minutes at least three to four times a week. Thirty minutes every day is ideal.
8.Quit smoking.
9.Reduce your stress. Stress causes your arteries and veins to constrict.
1..Buy an at-home blood pressure monitor and check your blood pressure frequently. Record the results in a notebook.
1..Check your cholesterol once a year and record it in a notebook. High blood cholesterol can narrow arteries and make you more prone to hypertension. 
Tips:
In general, if your blood pressure is not dangerously high, your doctor will wait for up to six months before starting you on anti-hypertensive medication. This will give your body a chance to lower its blood pressure through lifestyle and dietary changes.
Diuretics will cause you to urinate more frequently, which has a tendency to deplete your blood potassium. Eat foods high in natural potassium, such as bananas, dried apricots, tomatoes and potatoes boiled in their skins. 
Warnings:
If you experience dizziness, impotence, swelling around your ankles or any other side effects, call your doctor immediately.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact a physician or other health care professional before engaging in any activity related to health and diet. This information is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment.
