Here are Gurgles top ten tips on how to be a good parent…

1. Be involved in your child's life.

Being involved fully in your child’s life can be hard work, and more often than not means rethinking and rearranging your priorities. Lots of parents feel they don’t spend enough time with their children or that they have to sacrifice what they do for what the child wants. It’s important to get the balance right; if you work all week and can’t imagine a weekend looking after the children and need some ‘downtime’ yourself, make sure you make time for both. Take the children to the park, ice creams, read to them , spending quality time together but say ‘mummy/daddy needs an hour to catch up on emails/football etc’ to get the balance right.


2. Establish and set rules.

Make sure you and your partner stick to the same rules. It’s no good if Daddy comes home and lets the children have chocolate buttons after Mum has said they are only allowed a certain amount of chocolate if they are good! Establishing some ‘family rules’ with your children is a great way to communicate your expectations and be consistent in your parenting. Make sure there are no more than 3-5 house rules as too many can seem like lists and lists of rules which children would soon find tedious.


3. Avoid harsh discipline.

Many people use the same tactics their own parents used, and a lot of times that meant using really harsh discipline which can make children angrier and either more enclosed or more likely to take it out on others. Sometimes being a parent can make you very frustrated, especially when you have a whinging whining child (for no reason) and the child will not reason with you. The best thing to do in this circumstance is try not to make an issue out of the whinging by not getting cross. Laughing during a tense moment can ease the pressure off you and may even make the child stop the tantrum when they realise it really doesn’t work. Take a moment to stop, breathe, count to ten and carry on as normal with what you are doing. Your child will hopefully get the point that you are not interested in the tantrum and you can make light of it.

4. Explain your rules and decisions.

Always explain your rules and decisions so that your children know exactly why you are punishing/praising them and they can learn from this. For example, ‘Smita, I am not going to give you your chocolate cake until you finish your gobi because you have to eat up your dinner before you can go on and have a desert’, rather than a simple no.

5. Treat your child with respect

Sometimes it’s difficult to understand the sheer dependency and enormity of raising children and parents do often view them as small beings who really should be grateful, have less tantrums, stop whinging, and stop arguing with their siblings etc. These are all ideal types of behaviour which we would love children to understand, but in truth, the ungratefulness, tantrums, whinging and so on, can be down to parents barking orders all day long, ignoring common courtesies toward the child, and in defiance, children ignore the parents altogether. The best approach would be to treat your child as respectfully as you yourself would like to be treated.


6. Help them feel safe

It is very important for children to feel safe and this can start at home by hanging family portraits around the house, or pictures of them with their siblings in their bedrooms -a great way of giving them a sense of belonging.

Try not to argue with your spouse in front of the children. If they are sleeping, argue quietly. Children may feel insecure and fearful when they hear parents bickering. Also, children will learn to argue with each other the same way as they hear their parents argue with each other. The best way to deal with this is to show them that when people disagree, they can discuss their differences peacefully.

7. Do Something Familiar.

Children love routine and ritual, and if there is a special thing you  and your children love doing, make time to make it part of your day/week. A particular story you always read before bedtime or something you always say to them before they go to bed. Children love the repetition of something lovely and will remember these little loving moments as they get older.

8. Read together

No matter whether you have a tiny baby or a wriggly toddler, they all love to be read to. You may need to adapt what you read slightly, more colourful bold books for babies, and simple, funny or sweet stories for toddlers. A 4-5 year old will be able to handle slightly more complex story and interesting illustrations. Reading with your child creates a perfect bonding time together.

9. Find out one important thing about your child’s day.

Although this really applies to slightly older children, finding something important about what they did at nursery or the childminders or even if they had a day out with daddy, is very important. It shows that you are interested in what they do and involved in their world. As they get older this can work as they may tell you the good things but also comfortable enough to tell you their worries and fears.

10. Don’t worry about the previous nine items.

Just when you think you’re doing ok as a parent, then along comes an article like this one to make you feel like you are not doing the job right!? Of course, that’s not the point. All the goals we’ve listed are worth aiming for, but no one will ever accomplish all of them, every day. So don’t beat yourself up trying to do the impossible. If expectations seem to high, be realistic about it and try not to judge yourself against other parents… remember they are probably feeling like you do as well.

A good way to look at how to become a good parent, is to try and enjoy the time you have with your little ones. Take a step back, take a breath, look at these little people you have created and spend time with them. It’s these moments with your children that make them feel loved. Leave the washing for another few minutes, have that chat with a friend on the phone a bit later and take those extra moments to spend with your children.

Dynamic Image Generation, ASP.NET Controllers, Routing, IHttpHandlers, and runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests

Referred URL

http://www.hanselman.com/blog/BackToBasicsDynamicImageGenerationASPNETControllersRoutingIHttpHandlersAndRunAllManagedModulesForAllRequests.aspx

 

Often folks want to dynamically generate stuff with ASP.NET. The want to dynamically generate PDFs, GIFs, PNGs, CSVs, and lots more. It's easy to do this, but there's a few things to be aware of if you want to keep things as simple and scalable as possible.

You need to think about the whole pipeline as any HTTP request comes in. The goal is to have just the minimum number of things run to do the job effectively and securely, but you also need to think about "who sees the URL and when."

A timeline representation of the ASP.NET pipeline

This diagram isn't meant to be exhaustive, but rather give a general sense of when things happen.

Modules can see any request if they are plugged into the pipeline. There are native modules written in C++ and managed modules written in .NET. Managed modules are run anytime a URL ends up being processed by ASP.NET or if "RAMMFAR" is turned on.

<system.webServer>

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" />

</system.webServer>

You want to avoid having this option turned on if your configuration and architecture can handle it. This does exactly what it says. All managed modules will run for all requests. That means *.* folks. PNGs, PDFs, everything including static files ends up getting seen by ASP.NET and the full pipeline. If you can let IIS handle a request before ASP.NET sees it, that's better.

Remember that the key to scaling is to do as little as possible. You can certainly make a foo.aspx in ASP.NET Web Forms page and have it dynamically generate a graphic, but there's some non-zero amount of overhead involved in the creation of the page and its lifecycle. You can make a MyImageController in ASP.NET MVC but there's some overhead in the Routing that chopped up the URL and decided to route it to the Controller. You can create just an HttpHandler or ashx. The result in all these cases is that an image gets generated but if you can get in and get out as fast as you can it'll be better for everyone. You can route the HttpHandler with ASP.NET Routing or plug it into web.config directly.

Works But...Dynamic Images with RAMMFAR and ASP.NET MVC

A customer wrote me who was using ASP.NET Routing (which is an HttpModule) and a custom routing handler to generate images like this:

routes.Add(new Route("images/mvcproducts/{ProductName}/default.png",

new CustomPNGRouteHandler()));

Then they have a IRouteHandler that just delegates to an HttpHandler anyway:

public class CustomPNGRouteHandler : IRouteHandler

{

public System.Web.IHttpHandler GetHttpHandler(RequestContext requestContext)

{

return new CustomPNGHandler(requestContext);

}

}

Note the {ProductName} route data in the route there. The customer wants to be able to put anything in that bit. if I visithttp://localhost:9999/images/mvcproducts/myproductname/default.png I see this image...

A dynamically generated PNG from ASP.NET Routing, routed to an IHttpHandler

Generated from this simple HttpHandler:

public class CustomPNGHandler : IHttpHandler

{

public bool IsReusable { get { return false; } }

protected RequestContext RequestContext { get; set; }

public CustomPNGHandler():base(){}

public CustomPNGHandler(RequestContext requestContext)

{

this.RequestContext = requestContext;

}

public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)

{

using (var rectangleFont = new Font("Arial", 14, FontStyle.Bold))

using (var bitmap = new Bitmap(320, 110, PixelFormat.Format24bppRgb))

using (var g = Graphics.FromImage(bitmap))

{

g.SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;

var backgroundColor = Color.Bisque;

g.Clear(backgroundColor);

g.DrawString("This PNG was totally generated", rectangleFont, SystemBrushes.WindowText, new PointF(10, 40));

context.Response.ContentType = "image/png";

bitmap.Save(context.Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Png);

}

}

}

The benefits of using MVC is that handler is integrated into your routing table. The bad thing is that doing this simple thing requires RAMMFAR to be on. Every module sees every request now so you can generate your graphic. Did you want that side effect? The bold is to make you pay attention, not scare you. But you do need to know what changes you're making that might affect the whole application pipeline.

(As an aside, if you're a big site doing dynamic images, you really should have your images on their own cookieless subdomain in the cloud somewhere with lots of caching, but that's another article).

So routing to an HttpHandler (or an MVC Controller) is an OK solution but it's worth exploring to see if there's an easier way that would involve fewer moving parts. In this case the they really want the file to have the extension *.png rather than *.aspx (page) or *.ashx (handler) as it they believe it affects their image's SEO in Google Image search.

Better: Custom HttpHandlers

Remember that HttpHandlers are targeted to a specific path, file or wildcard and HttpModules are always watching. Why not use an HttpHandler directly and plug it in at the web.config level and set runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="false"?

<system.webServer>

<handlers>

<add name="pngs" verb="*" path="images/handlerproducts/*/default.png"

type="DynamicPNGs.CustomPNGHandler, DynamicPNGs" preCondition="managedHandler"/>

</handlers>

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="false" />

</system.webServer>

Note how I have a * there in part of the URL? Let's try hitting http://localhost:37865/images/handlerproducts/myproductname/default.png. It still works.

A dynamically generated PNG from an ASP.NET IHttpHandler

This lets us not only completely bypass the managed ASP.NET Routing system but also remove RAMMFAR so fewer modules are involved for other requests. By default, managed modules will only run for requests that ended up mapped to the managed pipeline and that's almost always requests with an extension. You may need to be aware of routing if you have a "greedy route" that might try to get ahold of your URL. You might want an IgnoreRoute. You also need to be aware of modules earlier in the process that have a greedy BeginRequest.

The customer could setup ASP.NET and IIS to route request for *.png to ASP.NET, but why not be as specific as possible so that the minimum number of requests is routed through the managed pipeline? Don't do more work than you need to.

What about extensionless URLs?

Getting extensionless URLs working on IIS6 was tricky before and lots of been written on it. Early on in IIS6 and ASP.NET MVC you'd map everything *.* to managed code. ASP.NET Routing used to require RAMFARR set to true until the Extensionless URL feature was created.

Extentionless URLs support was added in this KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980368 and ships with ASP.NET MVC 4. If you have ASP.NET MVC 4, you have Extentionless URLs on your development machine. But your server may not. You may need to install this hotfix, or turn on RAMMFAR. I would rather you install the update than turn on RAMMFAR if you can avoid it. The Run All Modules options is really a wildcard mapping.

Extensionless URLs exists so you can have URLs like /home/about and not /home/about.aspx. It exists to get URLs without extensions to be seen be the managed pipelines while URLs with extensions are not seen any differently. The performance benefits of Extensionless URLs over RAMMFAR are significant.

If you have static files like CSS, JS and PNG files you really want those to be handled by IIS (and HTTP.SYS) for speed. Don't let your static files get mapped to ASP.NET if you can avoid it.

Conclusion

When you're considering any solution within the ASP.NET stack (or "One ASP.NET" as I like to call it)...

The complete ASP.NET stack with MVC, Web Pages, Web Forms and more called out in a stack of boxes

...remember that it's things like IHttpHandler that sit at the bottom and serve one request (everything comes from IHttpHandler) while it's IHttpModule that's always watching and can see every request.

In other words, and HttpHandler sees the ExecuteRequestHandler event which is just one event in the pipeline, while HttpModules can see every event they subscribe to.

HttpHandlers and Modules are at the bottom of the stack

WHY TO VISIT TEMPLES ? A must read ! - (Scientific Reason)


There are thousands of temples all over India in different size, shape and locations but not all of them are considered to be built the Vedic way. Generally, a temple should be located at a place where earth's magnetic wave path passes through densely. It can be in the outskirts of a town/village or city, or in middle of the dwelling place, or on a hilltop. The essence of visiting a temple is discussed here.


Now, these temples are located strategically at a place where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions of north/south pole thrust. The main idol is placed in the core center of the temple, known as "*Garbhagriha*" or *Moolasthanam*. In fact, the temple structure is built after the idol has been placed. This *Moolasthanam* is where earth’s magnetic waves are found to be maximum. We know that there are some copper plates, inscribed with Vedic scripts, buried beneath the Main Idol. What are they really? No, they are not God’s / priests’ flash cards when they forget the *shlokas*. The copper plate absorbs earth’s magnetic waves and radiates it to the surroundings. Thus a person regularly visiting a temple and walking clockwise around the Main Idol receives the beamed magnetic waves and his body absorbs it. This is a very slow process and a regular visit will let him absorb more of this positive energy. Scientifically, it is the positive energy that we all require to have a healthy life.


Further, the Sanctum is closed on three sides. This increases the effect of all energies. The lamp that is lit radiates heat energy and also provides light inside the sanctum to the priests or *poojaris* performing the pooja. The ringing of the bells and the chanting of prayers takes a worshipper into trance, thus not letting his mind waver. When done in groups, this helps people forget personal problems for a while and relieve their stress. The fragrance from the flowers, the burning of camphor give out the chemical energy further aiding in a different good aura. The effect of all these energies is supplemented by the positive energy from the idol, the copper plates and utensils in the *Moolasthan*am / *Garbagraham*. *Theertham*, the “holy” water used during the pooja to wash the idol is not
plain water cleaning the dust off an idol. It is a concoction of Cardamom,*Karpura* (Benzoin), zaffron / saffron, *Tulsi* (Holy Basil), Clove, etc...Washing the idol is to charge the water with the magnetic radiations thus increasing its medicinal values. Three spoons of this holy water is distributed to devotees. Again, this water is mainly a source of magneto-therapy. Besides, the clove essence protects one from tooth decay, the saffron & *Tulsi* leafs protects one from common cold and cough, cardamom and *Pachha Karpuram* (benzoin), act as mouth fresheners. It is proved that *Theertham* is a very good blood purifier, as it is highly energized. Hence it is given as *prasadam* to the devotees. This way, one can claim to remain healthy by regularly visiting the Temples. This is why our elders used to suggest us to offer prayers at the temple so that you will be cured of many ailments. They were not always superstitious. Yes, in a few cases they did go overboard when due to ignorance they hoped many serious diseases could be cured at temples by deities. When people go to a temple for the *Deepaaraadhana*, and when the doors open up, the positive energy gushes out onto the persons who are there. The water that is sprinkled onto the assemblages passes on the energy to all. This also explains why men are not allowed to wear shirts at a few temples and women are requested to wear more ornaments during temple visits. It is through these jewels (metal) that positive energy is absorbed by the women. Also, it is a practice to leave newly purchased jewels at an idol’s feet and then wear them with the idol’s blessings. This act is now justified after reading this article. This act of “seeking divine blessings” before using any new article, like books or pens or automobiles may have stemmed from this through mere observation.


Energy lost in a day’s work is regained through a temple visit and one is refreshed slightly. The positive energy that is spread out in the entire temple and especially around where the main idol is placed, are simply absorbed by one's body and mind. Did you know, every Vaishnava(Vishnu devotees), “must” visit a Vishnu temple twice every day in their location. Our practices are NOT some hard and fast rules framed by 1 man and his followers or God’s words in somebody’s dreams. All the rituals, all the practices are, in reality, well researched, studied and scientifically backed thesis which form the ways of nature to lead a good healthy life.


The scientific and research part of the practices are well camouflaged as “elder’s instructions” or “granny’s teaching’s” which should be obeyed as a mark of respect so as to once again, avoid stress to the mediocre brains. — with Dolma Hope, Amit Ambade, Unique Akki, Chandra Shekhar Ram, Kavita Hiremath, Vijiya Arpan Arpan, Supriyo Sadhukhan, Bharath Sai, Veeresh Bunyyar, Amritha Chalavadi, Dipti Rajkumar, Varun Sharma, Swapna Satya, Keerthi Priya, Krazzygurl Priya, Arnavi D Eye Catcher, Premkumar Aland, Ramangouda Sankangoudar, Manjunath G Naganagoudar, Cloier Nkjkjk, Angel Lovemusic, Navnit Singh, Sneha Dutta and Rohan Veigas.

கருவில் உள்ள குழந்தையின் பாலினத்தை அறிந்து கொள்வது சட்டப்படி குற்றமாகும். இருப்பினும் ஒரு சிலருக்கு பெண் குழந்தையின் மீது விருப்பம் அதிகம். பெண் குழந்தையை ஆவலுடன் எதிர்பார்க்கிறீர்களா? உங்களின் உடல் அமைப்பு எப்படி உள்ளது என்பதை தெரிந்து கொள்வதன் மூலம் கருவில் உள்ள குழந்தை ஆணா, பெண்ணா என்பதை அறிந்து கொள்ளலாம்.


பளபளப்பான தோற்றம்
கர்ப்பிணிகளின் சருமமும், முகமும் பளபளப்பாக இருந்தாலே கருவில் உள்ள குழந்தை பெண் குழந்தைதான் என்று வீட்டில் உள்ள பெரியவர்கள் கூறக் கேட்கலாம். கர்ப்பிணிகளின் கண்ணக் கதுப்பு ரோஸ், அல்லது இளஞ்சிவப்பு நிறத்தில் பூரிப்பாய் இருக்குமாம். அதேபோல் கர்ப்பிணிகளின் எடையும் சற்று அதிகமாய் இருக்கும்.


வாந்தி, மயக்கம்
கர்ப்பிணிகள் அனைவருக்குமே வாந்தி, மயக்கம் ஏற்படுவது இயல்பானதுதான். ஆனால் கருவில் உள்ளது பெண்குழந்தை என்றால் அவர்கள் அதிர்ஸ்டசாலிகளாம். ஆம் அவர்களுக்கு வாந்தி, மயக்கம் ஏற்படுவது குறைவாகவே இருக்குமாம்.


இனிப்பு உணவுகள்
பொதுவாகவே கர்ப்பிணிகளுக்கு புளிப்புதான் விருப்பமான உணவாக இருக்கும். ஆனால் பெண் குழந்தையை சுமக்கும் கர்பிணிகளுக்கு இனிப்பு உணவு என்றால் மிகவும் பிடிக்குமாம். கர்ப்பத்தில் உள்ள பெண்குழந்தைக்கு இனிப்பு அதிக விருப்பம் என்பதால் தாய்க்கும் அது விருப்பமான உணவாக உள்ளதாக பிரசவம் பார்க்கும் பெண்கள் கூறுகின்றனர்.


இதயத்துடிப்பு அதிகம்
கருவில் உள்ள குழந்தைக்கு இதயத்துடிப்பு அதிகம் இருக்கும். ஒரு நிமிடத்திற்கு 140 முறை துடிக்கும் என்று மருத்துவர்கள் கூறுகின்றனர். உங்கள் குழந்தையின் இதயத்துடிப்பு நிமிடத்திற்கு 140 ஆக உள்ளதாக சந்தேகமே வேண்டாம் அது பெண் குழந்தைதான் என்று அவர்கள் கூறுகின்றனர்.


கர்ப்பிணிகளே உங்கள் உடல் அமைப்பு, உங்களுக்கு ஏற்படும் மாற்றங்களை வைத்து ஆண் குழந்தையா, பெண்குழந்தையா என்பதை தெரிந்து கொள்ளுங்களேன்.
