10 Things We Should Never Stop Believing In

Thought Catalog

1. Fortunes.

In cookies, in the newspaper, a magic 8 ball, your horoscope—wherever you read them. If it uncannily matches whatever event is occurring in your life, you have the freedom to believe that the stars have aligned to create a cosmic shift that caused whatever event lead you to read said fortune. It is not because it is one of the 100 standardized, vague messages that could apply to the majority of the population. It is because it spoke to something in you.

2. Our hearts over our heads.

We’re submersed in a culture that tells us to be strong, independent people who don’t need anyone else’s approval, acceptance, or bank account. The tides have shifted to inform us that wanting to be loved is a symptom of being desperate, that fighting for the right to love isn’t as important as moving on. We’re supposed to take a baseball…

Getting Started with Twitter Bootstrap

Get the complete Tutorial On Nyxinfotech.in

In the field of Web design and development, we’re quickly getting to the point of being unable to keep up with the endless new resolutions and devices. For many websites, creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be impossible, or at least impractical. To solve this fundamental problem we have “Responsive web design”.

Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, BlackBerry, netbook or Kindle the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.

Twitter Bootstrap is one of the most popular front end frameworks for responsive design. This tutorial will get you started with Twitter Bootstrap v3.0.0.

What is Twitter Bootstrap?

Twitter Bootstrap is a front end framework for fast development of web sites and applications. There are several components which are required in almost all web projects such as Forms, buttons, grids, tables, typography. Bootstrap provides you with all those basic modules. Besides, there are many other useful front end components like Dropdowns, Navigation, Modals, Typehead, Pagination, Carousal, Breadcrumb, Tab, Thumbnails, Headers etc. With these you can make a web project up and running quickly and easily.

Twitter Bootstrap can be easily customized to meet one’s needs thanks to its module based framework.

Download Bootstrap: https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/archive/v3.0.0.zip

After you download and extract the package you will get the following:

The bootstrap.css and bootstrap.js are non-minified versions of the CSS and JS files and may be deleted unless you want to customize any of the bootstrap code. The minified versions are smaller in size and ready for deployment.

Copy the css, img and js folders into the root directory/folder (root= the folder where all the html files will be stored).

directory structure

This is what the root will look like once we have created an index.html (homepage) of our site.

Getting Started: Following is the basic structure of our project

Note the JS files are put at the bottom of the HTML because they don’t block page rendering and CSS loading time. You can check the ySlow and Google PageSpeed rules for fast loading websites and page optimization.

The 10 Stupidest Things You Can Say To A Depressed Person

Thought Catalog

1. “Just go outside more!”

Right, because going outside is the easiest part of any depressed person’s day, and the only thing stopping them from going for a light frolic through the local park is the fact that no one has told them how awesome it was! The thing is, a huge part of depression is not being able to navigate the world in the way you used to, and there is a good chance that they are trying desperately just to make it out to get basic food supplies if they are at a low point of an episode. It’s not that they don’t know how good fresh air feels, it’s that they can’t force themselves to do it without having a minor breakdown.

2. “You need more exercise.”

Everyone needs more exercise, and it can certainly help a lot of people with temporary bouts of sadness, but someone…

29 People On The Little Things That Are Big Turn-Offs

Thought Catalog

1. suburbside

Apathy. It’s draining to have to be the only one to care — and boring as well.

2. DrMethodical

Not being able to take a joke. I know one girl who’s very attractive, and if you make a mistake, she’ll laugh at you for way longer than she should. If she messes up, you can’t laugh or it’s game over, I’m leaving — fuck you.

3. meow_bot

Rudeness.

4. Revelgoodpeople

Being actually racist. Jokes are just jokes. Using expletives against black people on Judge Judy like the rest of my family does is racism.

5. thechristiner

The number one thing I learned I do not like through trial and error (aka dating) is emotional manipulation, especially through withholding emotional availability and love.

I had a boyfriend a long time ago who would give me just enough positive attention to keep me around then make sure I knew I…

The Finance Minister Rhymes

Tax his land, tax his wage,

Tax his bed in which he lays.

Tax his tractor, tax his mule,

Teach him taxes is the rule.

 

Tax his cow, tax his goat,

Tax his pants, tax his coat.

Tax his ties, tax his shirts,

Tax his work, tax his dirt.

 

Tax his chew, tax his smoke,

Teach him taxes are no joke.

Tax his car, tax his ass

Tax the roads he must pass.

 

Tax his tobacco, tax his drink,

Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his booze, tax his beers,

If he cries, tax his tears.

 

Tax his bills, tax his gas,

Tax his notes, tax his cash.

Tax him good and let him know,

That after taxes, he has no dough.

 

If he hollers, tax him more,

Tax him until he’s good and sore.

Tax his coffin, tax his grave,

Tax the earth in which he lays.

 

Put these words upon his tomb,

“Taxes drove me to my doom!”

And when he’s gone, we won’t relax,

We’ll still be after the inheritance Tax!

The Magic Of Music And What It Does To Your Productivity

Thought Catalog

Damn. I forgot my headphones.

Nothing has a more negative impact on my day than showing up to our office without them.

Like most people, music is a huge part of my life and my tastes are constantly changing based on how I feel or what I’m doing.

I listen to the most music while I work, sifting through playlists, from jazz, to indie pop, to electronica, on what seems to be a never-ending search for the perfect tunes to keep me in the zone.

When I looked back at all my favorite playlists,I wondered what effect music has had on my work and more specifically, which types of music have had the most impact.

I thought it’d be interesting to take a dive into the science behind the deep power of music to find out if it actually helps you work better.

Why you love music

Let This Semester Go….

If there is one line that almost every student has said during the college days, it would be, “Let this semester go, next se mann laga ke padhai karenge”. Infact this has been my story for the past 4 years. Semester after semester I’ve made promises to study harder the next time. And today I realise that I won’t have an “Aagla semester” to work hard.

I wanted my last few days of my college life to be exciting, but alas! God had other plans. No farewell, It had to be our branch…. (Seriously, CS ko to waise bhi nai milne wali thi).

What bugs me the most is- “No more Ravi Pathak sir and Amit Gaurav sir ke Lectures  “.

Few things that I really wanted to accomplish but missed:

Scoring 30/30 in a sessional, But due to my love of featuring in the detained list, Ye sapna adhura reh gaya. Bas Khushi is baat ki hai ki Detain hone me har baar Top kiya  .

A Class Trip: Honestly, we have been really unlucky when it comes to all this stuff. A cancelled trip, huh!
And we couldn’t even plan one.

I guess enough of the depressing stuff.

I heard my seniors how the last day brought mixed feelings, the Joy of graduating and the grief of losing the company of friends. But it amazes me that I feel nothing at all. But after 4 years of trauma tha B.tech was, I am happy that I’m still breathing.

I met few of the most amazing people. People who changed my outlook towards everything.

Vivek Singh : It’s rightly said Brothers dont always have the same last name. When all else fails, there is one guy who dosen’t. Even in the worst of situations he happens to be that Ray of Hope. Bas aise hi Banaras ka naam roshan karte rehna.

Sudhir Rai : (Rai Sahab / Mr. Hospitality): Aapki kitni bhi taarif kare, kam hi hogi. You can’t hate this guy. B-4 IAS colony, has been the venue of all our masti. Rai sahab Proves ki “Dil Bada Hona Chahiye”. An integral part of my MUN-Gang. He indeed is the hospitality king.

Rahul Sharma: (Sharma Ji) A perfect combo of a Gamer and Foodie… It just dosen’t get any better than this. Everytime I faced a crisis- that War between Dite and Dessert, I knew who to consult. A simple line- “Chal be kuch Kha ke aate hain” could resolve the greatest of dilemmas. If you love food as much as I, Sharma ji is the best buddy you can ever have.

Tauhid Ahmed : Shayad poora first year inke sms padhne me hi guzar gaya. Another Banarasi Legend. If you haven’t heard of him or laughed at his Texts, you’ve been living under a rock. He has an amazing ability to play with words. Awesome character.

Vardaan Arora: Dude likes to Suit Up- nuff said.

Paurush Agarwal: The Sleeping Beauty. Staying up the whole night so that you can complete the quota of sleep in the class pure Awesomeness.

Abdur Raheem Usmani: Simplicity at it’s best. Had a few thought provoking sessions with him. Truly a wonderful personality.

Vikil Tyagi: Mera Kumbh me khoya bhai… One of the Few who can literally Mindfuck you. His Pravachans are amazing. It dosen’t matter ke discussion kis topic pe hai… aap bas hukum karo nd He’ll blow your mind. I’ll always remember his first pravachan which lasted 6 rounds of ansal plaza #TrueStory.

last but Not the Least:
Pandey Ji and Prateek Mishra: Hard and Smart workers. future leaders…. Netagiri ke sare features hai inme. Inki dictionary me “impossible” word nai hai. Overall Mast log hain. It is great to know you guyz.

Finally Sincere Thanks to Harivans Sir My Mentor, has been a strict taskmaster yet an inspiration always.
It is impossible to mention all so thank you folks for making the last four years worth remembering….

A special thanks to She Who-would-not-be-named.

I’m not good at saying good byes so I’ll just skip it.

Hope you guys have an amazing life ahead.
