    Pornography on the internet must be on the top of the list for parents concerns for their kids.

    I had made some really scary discovery whilst researching on how to address this issue for my home, and here are the shocking results:

    Did you know?
    The multi-billion-dollar pornography industry is using the Internet to tap into a new market unashamedly, the sanctity of American homes. There are 4.2 million pornographic websites. That equals roughly 12% of all websites in the world.

    80% of 15-17 year olds have had multiple hard-core exposures.

    90% of 8-16 year olds have viewed porn online (most while doing homework.)

    29% of 7-17 year olds would freely give out home address.

    14% of 7-17 year olds would freely give out email address. 26 Childrens character names (Including Pokeman and Action Man) are linked to thousands of porn links.

    The average age of first Internet exposure to pornography is 11 years old.

    One in five children ages 10-17 have received a sexual solicitation over the Internet.

    70% of sexual advances over the Internet happened while youngsters were on a home computer.

    A survey of 600 households conducted by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children found that 20% of parents do not know any of their childrens Internet passwords, instant messaging nicknames or email addresses.

    Incidents of child sexual exploitation have risen from 4,573 in 1998 to 112,083 in 2004, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

    96% of kids have gone online; 74% having access at home and 61% use the Internet on a typical day.

    Twenty percent of youths received sexual solicitations. Eighty-nine percent of sexual solicitations of youths were made in chat rooms.

    The report compiled for the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that nearly nine out of 10 young people, ages 12 through 17, have online access up from about three-quarters of young people in 2000.

    Older teen girls who were surveyed, ages 15 to 17, are among the most intense users of the Internet and cell phones, including text messaging.

    One in four children who use the Internet are exposed to unwanted sexual material.

    21% of teens say they have looked at something on the Internet that they wouldnt want their parents to know.

    Yikes! What on earth is happening? Pokemon character names used as links to porn sites?

    It seems that most people these days have a friend, relative or neighbor in the Information Technology industry. One could be forgiven for concluding that this popularity is a product of a well known process supplying the Information Technology industry with rejuvenated stock year in and year out. Nothing could be further from the truth, approximately 70,000 searches a month for the keywords Information Technology Career or similar variances on Google alone validate this claim.

    Even with a University degree many graduates find themselves lost and confused about their career path. The problem that graduates face is that Information Technology is a broad description encompassing any and all industries involved with the storage, processing or delivery of information. Telecommunications specialists and hardware technicians alike call themselves “IT” professionals despite very different training and skill sets. As do developers, business analysts, help desk consultants, web designers and database administrators just to name a few others.

    In an industry where knowledge is rewarded, opportunity awaits savvy students and trainees who focus their training sooner rather than later. Take our two example students whom Ive very imaginatively called Student#1 and Student#2.

    Student #1 wasnt sure where his IT education might take him. He is bright and cruised through his course producing the following impressive results.

    2007 High School Graduate
    2010 Information Technology Degree (6.1 of a maximum 7 GPA)

    Good results are great. But can we raise the bar without improving on the GPA?

    Student #2 researched the industry very early into his degree; he spoke with appropriate parties including recruitment agencies and other IT professionals. He even volunteered for three weeks of work experience in his field of choice. He continued on a focused career track throughout his time at university and at the end of his degree his final portfolio of achievements looked like this;

    2007 High School Certificate
    2008 Systems Administrator (3 week work experience) Company XYZ
    2009 Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) Self Study
    2009 Professional Membership AITP (Association of Information Technology Professionals)
    2010 Information Technology Degree (5.6 of a maximum 7 GPA)
    Major Infrastructure Technologies
    Major Network Technologies

    Student #2 focused his efforts towards a Systems Administrator role three years before he was scheduled to finish his degree. Apart from the additional experience he was able to get a first hand insight into the industry and learned that an MCP certification would be a valuable asset to his job hunting arsenal. Additional research also led him to join a professional association. Even his university degree shows clear intent and when you compare his achievements with Student#1 he looks a much stronger candidate despite a lower University GPA.

    This is an example of well planned career development. The Information Technology industry excels in presenting unique opportunities and this is no exception. Forward thinkers and innovators stand up and get noticed Will you cruise through your studies or are you taking the bull by the horns?

    The primary task of a web hosting provider is to provide ample server space, offer best web services and proper maintenance of servers. There are two different varieties of web hosting services offered by companies. These are shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

    Now let us look at each of them in detail:

    Shared hosting: Shared hosting, also popularly known as virtual hosting is one of the mostly commonly provided web hosting services. In this system, the equipment and server are owned by the web host company. It usually places your content and applications on a common server which is shared by all the other customers utilizing the services of the same web host.

    The main advantage of having shared web host is that it is affordable and efficient in terms of performance. The server helps you review the performance of your site using the control panel provided by the web host company. However, the only limitation with this kind of system is that it prevents you from using certain scripting languages and applications. PlanetOnline.net offers some great shared web hosting packages.

    Dedicated hosting: This is an advanced kind of web hosting that allows you to hire an entire server and then have access to all its resources. In this kind of system, the web host gives you a free hand to manage and install scripts and soft-wares on the server.

    The main benefit of having this system is that it includes high quality infrastructure, high speed connectivity and most importantly it is very safe. Unlike other hosting systems, it allows the operation of CPU intensive applications without any hurdles. This kind of plan is suitable for companies that have large scale of operations and high customer traffic on their sites. PlanetOnline.net has customized packages for Dedicated Web Hosting

    Root Server hosting: Also popular as semi managed hosting, this system allows you to control your server by providing access to root. This is also a very safe, reliable hosting system that offers flexibility in terms of operation. This is perfect for people in search of customized plans.

    Reseller hosting: As the name denotes, this kind of system allows you to enter a contract with web hosting company and then resell their services under your own brand name. This is ideal for companies that look to host on behalf of their clients. Become a Reseller using state of the art Web Hosting Services from PlanetOnline.net

    Finally we would like to conclude stating that the ultimate choice lies in the hands of the client depending on his specific requirements. For more details visit planetonline.net

    is the designed website which invites members to converse about their concerns relating to the coding strategies, expansion and practices of the program. Members cab post their queries and get immediate responses from professionals because on these forums, not only beginners with problems are actively participating, but certified and practiced experts are also available who can help every beginner or new learner in their expertise.

    The does not only cater to the visual basic program learners but also to various other learners who are in related fields like BASIC, VBA and VBScript. Of course, the forum moderators have created sub-divisions for every program so that professionals can easily provide solutions for every field separately without mixing all the queries. The sub-divisions are also very beneficial for the members because anyone facing a problem can first read all the available posts to see if somebody having the same crisis as his has already discussed the matter on the forum and received an answer. If the issue has not been discussed lately, then the member should post his phrase stating his dilemma.

    The visual basic program is a rather easy program and can be counted as the primary stage of programming language, after which the second step can be Java and the third and complex step can be C and C++ program. All these programs are language programs but they work differently under different principles and codes of conduct. Due to this reason, for all the programming languages, various forums have been created because every program has such diverse concerns that they can never be answered by a limited number of professionals.

    Although visual basic program is considered a simpler working curriculum, but for beginners and new learners, it is something complicated to start with and they even need help with this program. The program’s latest version is the visual basic 6, but even this version like the older ones is also liable to work slower during interpretation of other computing languages. Apart from this issue, visual basic also has other concerns like it does not support programs whish are created by informational fields and methods because this program appears to be too complex to be worked out easily.

    Similarly, other performance issues like creating processing units or programs without the use of Windows API or even building Windows service program which runs at the back of Windows operating system can be talked about at the programming forum. Like Java program, all the versions of visual basic are also not supported by Microsoft, except for visual basic 6 core.

    With so many issues and concerns for the users, the visual basic proves very thoughtful and a professional way to bring forward issues and problems in public so that everyone can benefit from the issue as well as the solution.Undefined

    The VPS is well known as Virtual Private Server or a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) is a type of web hosting which is created by partitioning a physical server into many virtual servers, and every of these virtual servers have the impression and abilities of running independently with its own fully developed operating system without influence from other server and also can be rebooted independently.

    The 7th grade is one of those middle of the road grades. You are not the youngest grade in junior high nor are you the oldest. This presents a quandary for science students. Should they produce a high quality science fair project this year, or should they just do what is grade appropriate?

    The answer to this question will be based on what you want to get out of your science fair. If you are just interested in getting a passing grade on your science fair project then you can take the easy route and just select one of the following easy projects. However, if you want a chance at winning your science fair and truly exploring the world of science then you will need to take an easy science fair project and turn it into something truly amazing.

    Bacteria Science Fair Projects

    Bacteria science fair projects are really easy to complete. All you need to do is find a source of bacteria and select some way to manipulate their growth. For example, you can see how they respond to light, dark, music and various food sources. These experiments can usually be completed in less than a week.

    Food Science Fair Projects

    If you are interested in a super quick science fair project then food is your test subject of choice. Food science fair projects can generally be completed in a matter of hours. They can examine chemical reactions, precipitation, crystal growth of the physical states of matter.

    Finally Ive been able to check out the Game programming for Android. Ive found several Android game programming tutorials out there, but none of them were really exciting or user friendly. However, I was able to find an open source game engine which makes the life of a programmer a lot easier when it comes to game programming for the Android platform.

    Andengine

    The Andengine is an open source, free game engine strictly aimed at the Android platform. It offers Physics such as gravity or collision checks to the developer. Its based on OpenGL and offers a lot of functions which make the life of a game developer a lot easier. The advantages of this game engine are that you dont need to mess around with OpenGL directly when programming games for Android. You get some easy to use and fancy classes, so you can develop fast and efficient games in no time! Also this game engine is being developed on right now, so its not like a game engine which is dead and has a low user base. Its very wide spread and there are a lot of apps out there on the Android Market (obviously games) which were programming using the AndEngine. However, there is one problem with this game engine, which will probably scare away a lot of users; the documentation. The game engine might be coded fine and you can view the source code, but there is no or low documentation. There are examples out there for basically anything your game developer heart desires, also there is a community that will be glad to help you out, but there is no Javadoc for example, which is a badly wound for the AndEngine. However, its open source and free, so you cant expect more, its just great!

    My own experiences with the Andengine

    To be honest I havent had that much experience with the AndEngine. I have just been playing around for a while now with the examples out there and I will soon post some game tutorials in the near future on this blog, so you can get a feeling for the AndEngine. However, it seems that stuff which should be very easy to do, such as loading a picture into the memory, is not that easy using the AndEngine. Let me put it in another way, it is easy and user friendly, but its not very intuitive, you will need to get a feeling for the AndEngine first, if you have been programming with other Game development kits or engines, it has its own special approach. However, the code is very readable and well maintainable. Also the source is very well written and basically anybody with some Java and Android knowledge will be able to understand the source code more or less.
