Programming Tutorial Android Development; Andengine

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 4:15 pm

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.


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.

Halloween Horror Nights @ Universal Studios Welcome

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 2:59 pm

Halloween Horror Nights is an annual after-hours theme park event at Universal Orlando Resort and its been named The Countrys Best Halloween Event by Amusement Today. It began with a single haunted house in 1991 and billed as Fright Nights for three days (The HHN name was adopted the next year). It has evolved into a 23-night event featuring several themed houses plus stage shows and menacing street performers (some wielding chainsaws, VERY scary).

Horror Nights began at Universal Studios, but moved for a few years to sister park Islands of Adventure in 2002. In 2004, both parks were used before moving back to the Studios in 2006. Classic characters such as Frankenstein and Dracula have been incorporated, but Universal has also developed new characters for theming and marketing. Among these creatures are Jack (a demented clown), the Caretaker, the Director (an Eastern European who specialized in snuff films) and the Storyteller, an oddly hypnotic old woman.

In 2007, an agreement with New Line Cinema allowed more modern icons to be used for Horror Nights and the main Characters were based on the popular films Friday The 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Thing, Dead Silence and some of the most CHILLING houses from horror nights past. A Rocky Horror Picture Show revue also was added.

Some of the 2007 Highlights:
Ringmaster Jack transforms the streets of Halloween Horror Nights into a spine-tingling, multi-sensory spectacle! See such sinister sideshows as the Rat Lady, the Chainsaw Drill Team, Motormaniacs, Killer Carnies, and the Troupe Macabre
2008 brought Reflections of Fear and was the the most frightening ever in Halloween Horror Nights 18-year history, and themed after urban legends; popular billboards showcased the mascot- Bloody Mary, a woman that comes out of mirrors to find her lost child and murder those who call upon her.

There were many various haunted houses such as a nightmarish fairytale world, behind Marys mirror, zombies, and more. There were also many new scarezones- Asylum in Wonderland, with an evil Alice; a schoolhouse with murderous children; an evil Oz where the wicked witch has killed past characters and now reigns, and other twisted fairytale nightmares.

Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria Magazine, said, After visiting scream parks all across the US for the last 20 years, I can easily say that Universals is the best in the business Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween experience.

Bill & Teds Excellent Halloween Adventure debuted in 1993 and is back for 2009. The sometimes naughty stage show is a comic musical parody that skewers current events and personalities.

What else is new for 2009? Thats exactly what well be talking about regularly on this blog, so keep coming back; also dont miss out on The Orlando Vacation Store customarily Halloween Horror Nights special offering hotels and tickets packages at discounted price for reservation made before August 31st!

The Role Of A Tax Collector

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 2:51 pm

The County Tax Collector is as independent government agency and is elected for a four-year term in the Presidential election year. It is essential that a County Tax Collector is independent to ensure that it can serve the taxpayers, local businesses and local and state agencies correctly.

The duties of a County Tax Collector are:

Collecting property taxes for every local government agency with the power to levy taxes

Serving the state as an agent for the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Revenue and others

Managing local revenue programs, such as issuing occupational licenses and collecting tourist development taxes

The County Tax Collector is a vital link between the citizens and the diverse programs that affect them and they have the authority and resources to manage both state and local revenue programs.
A County Tax Collector can have collections and distributions of billions of dollars annually. Handling this requires conveniently located offices, skilled employees, and innovative data systems to ensure that the County Tax Collector functions efficiently and, most importantly, works accurately.

Even though the revenues collected by the County Tax Collector are mostly taxes, the County Tax Collector is not funded from tax dollars but is a fee office. The fees collected for the services provided by the County Tax Collector are used to fund the operating budget, which is approved by the States Department of Revenue. Unfortunately, the work volume of a County Tax Collector, along with cost-effective operations, normally results in fee revenues that are well in excess of the budget. The excess fees are returned to the local government agencies in proportion to the amount they pay by the County Tax Collector so that they receive tax collection services at the lowest possible cost.

Amongst other issues, the County Tax Collector bills and collects real and personal property taxes for the Department of Revenue. The actual amount of the tax is based on the assessed value of the property and the mileage rate, which is set by various taxing authorities. They also issue state motor vehicle licenses and processes applications for titles on automobiles, trucks, mobile homes, and boats on behalf of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Most tax personnel have some form of Municipal Tax Collector Qualification that is sponsored by local government services. This is because a tax collector has many legal obligations and financial responsibilities that must be met in a timely manner. Achieving the status of Qualified Tax Collector indicates that an individual has proven his or her competence, knowledge and professionalism in the field.

Six Best Culinary Herbs for Cooking

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Freshly picked culinary herbs add flavour to food and many are delicious additions to salads. Edible herb flowers such as pot marigold, nasturtium and rosemary can also be added to the salad bowl. Many culinary herbs are rich in vitamins and minerals and when freshly picked and eaten raw they can form part of a well-balanced diet. Raw herbs can also be used to add flavour to oils and vinegars for cooking and for salads.


Parsley leaves gives a fresh flavour to sauces and salads, when added just before serving. The stems and leaves of parsley can also be used in bouquet garni. Parsley tastes particularly good with pasta dishes, omelettes, vegetables, fish and any meat or poultry.

Parsley is one of the most widely known and used of the culinary herbs. There are two main types of parsley – curly leaf and flat leaf – and both are excellent for culinary purposes. Both of these herbs are a rich source of vitamins and minerals and they can be used to enhance the flavour of cooked dishes and green salads.


Basil goes with almost any dish but it has a special affinity with tomatoes and is a favourite in Italian cooking.

Sweet basil with its soft green leaves and creamy white or purple tinted flowers is the most popular type of basil. This culinary herb can be used in sauces and salads and to enhance the flavour of cooked dishes such as soups and stews. Perhaps the greatest basil dish is pesto sauce, eaten with spaghetti. This combination makes a wonderfully delicious meal.

There are many other types of basil. Purple ruffle, dark opal and Greek basil are three of the other more unusual varieties, all with differing flavours.


Spearmint and peppermint are two members of the mint family most widely known and used as culinary herbs. There are many varieties of mint, some with distinct scents and flavours and some can be used for a variety of culinary purposes, such as in sweet and savoury dishes, in salads and for herb tea.

Spearmint is a favourite for mint sauce to accompany lamb and tastes particularly good with dishes such as soups, stews, plain meats, fish and lemon-based deserts.

Peppermint is also popular as a culinary herb flavouring. This herb is most commonly used as flavouring for sweets and chocolates etc. and is also used to flavour cordials. Fresh peppermint leaves can be used to make peppermint tea and the leaves can be added to fresh green salads.


Thyme can be used to improve the flavour of most dishes. Both the fresh and dried leaves of this herb are used for cooking. Fresh thyme leaves are useful in many savoury dishes.

Thyme has a rich flavour which makes it an ideal accompaniment to roast meats and tastes good in slowly cooked dishes such as stews and soups. The finely chopped fresh leaves may be added to new potatoes or salad.

Thyme is regarded as one of the great culinary herbs and is widely used in European cooking. This herb is an evergreen perennial it is recognisable by its mauve flowers and small leaves.

The Software Billions Club Is A Scam

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 12:01 pm

That Software Billions Club is a scam. That’s what I read in some forums and blogs today when I was doing a little research. That was before I knew better. Well, I mean I did the research first and then decided to sign up and see what it was all about. These guys that post the “all hype” and “all scam” reviews – did you ever notice that they have affiliate links going to their own sites they review? That’s right, maybe they’re just giving bad reviews to convince you to buy what “they’re hyping”. Crazy isn’t it?

So, here’s the thing. I signed up for Software Billions as a member because I wanted to see how the club worked. I know that lots of people would be so skeptical that they would never signup, but that’s just not me. I figured if it was garbage, I could just cancel. Then I logged in for the first time and I was kinda shocked at all the information. You figure that you might login and there be a little good info, but good Lord- there was so much in there I couldn’t even take it all in! I’ve been a member for a few months and I still have hundreds of not thousands of things to go through.

The club gives you access to two things that are worth the membership fee alone: tools, and content. The Software Billions Club is about selling digital content online. Creating web sites and selling eBooks. Belonging to the club gives you free access to all these different ebooks that you can market in your web site. You can create as many web sites as you want to sell these, and an ebook is digital – that means that there’s no limit to how many you can sell!

The content alone would be enough for a lot of people to signup and become a member, but what sets the Software Billions Club apart from the other make money outfits online is that they actually want to see you succeed in making money – so you stay a member. That’s why they give so much support material, so many tutorials, and help videos, it’s like someone is literally looking over your back and being you online coach!

There’s one thing I failed to mention – as a member you are entitled to be in the monthly drawings for prizes. That’s right – they give away cash and prized each month to members! I’ve never heard of such a thing for a paid membership online – ever. I just thought you should know that the Software Billions Club is not a scam, and it took me actually signing up to see for myself that it was for real!

Services Provided At Top Notch Animal Hospitals

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 11:56 am

While looking for animal hospitals, Lock Haven, PA residents don’t waste time on those centers that are far off or not up to the mark. Your pet requires only the best medical treatment and this can only be delivered by a center that has good veterinarians and first class medical equipment. Finding such a place will wipe away all your concerns regarding the wellness of your animal.

Emergency services should be the first thing that you should be looking for in an animal hospital. Just like humans, pets too can fall seriously ill at any time. Injuries can take place out of the blue and in such circumstances the only thing you need is swift medical treatment. A center that has a veterinarian on call out of normal working hours should be your preferred option. This way no matter when your pet requires medical help , you can count on this hospital to provide you with it.

Besides that, the hospital you decide to deal with it should have a modern dental care unit along with a general surgery unit. Every pet needs regular oral cleaning and sometimes a surgery or two is a necessity for animals. You should be able to get all this at one center so that you don’t have to change your hospital for various procedures. Changing centers is not only time consuming but it also proves tiresome for your pet. If the animal has gotten used to the staff at a particular hospital then taking him/her to a new place could be a highly cumbersome thing to carry out.

Last but not the least, you need to make sure that your pet is treated in an appropriate manner by the vets and medical staff at the hospital.

Differences in 2D and 3D Animation

  • Posted on April 11, 2017 at 11:06 am

There are a lot of differences in 2D and 3D animation. 2D animation was widely popular during the 19th century, although, with the advance of computer technology, 3D animation soon gained popularity. Today, the use of 3D animation is common for creating special effects in feature films. Both 2D and 3D are forms of animation, but the capabilities of each and the processes for creating them differ largely. Let us look at the differences between them.

Creating Animation

Creating 3D animation is possible only on computers that are capable of using software applications such as LightWave 3D or 3D Studio Max. However, creating 2D animation is possible on most computers, using simple software applications such as Adobe Flash. Creating 2D animation is also possible using a pad of paper, with distinct hand drawings rendered on each page to stir movement.


Objects in 2D are flat, just like a photograph or painting. When viewing the front of a building in 2D, it is the only part of the building that exists in the animation. In 3D, objects are more like sculptures. They will have every aspect – front, back, sides, top, and bottom. That’s why, one can view a 3D building from any angle.


As a part of animation process, 3D animation applications use a virtual camera. This virtual camera has similar features that of an actual camera. The camera can also manipulate like an actual movie camera, which includes pans, zooms, and tracking shots. For 2D, such advance technology is not required.


Using 3D models and hyper-real textures, 3D animation can deliver viewing experience that are virtually similar to real life. On the other hand, even the highest quality 2D will still look like hand-drawn cartoon-like appearance.


Similar to a virtual camera, 3D computer applications use virtual lights that can simulate any light, including the sunlight. With the application, multiple light sources or different colored lights can be created to deliver a variety of effects. Objects that pass through these lights project realistic shadows on other objects or the background in the scene. In case of 2D, shadows are only drawn by hand.

Special Effects

For 2D, special effects such as explosions, fire, smoke, water ripples, and so on need to be hand-drawn for each frame. In case of 3D, all these effects are created easily with the software plug-ins or filters. These plug-ins or filters will produce the animated effect automatically after assigning few parameters.
