TIPS:
Remember that today’s day in age is different from how it was back then. So don’t stress about school too much.High school students today have the anxiety of what a mental patient in the insane asylum had in the 50s. Here’s also a thing to show how times have changed.
Prioritize. List what needs to get done first and when. Sometimes getting the bigger/harder tasks is easier than conquering the smaller/easier tasks.
Set times when certain projects need to be done and stick to that deadline.
Turn your phone off or give it to your parents while doing work/studying. I know that we live in the age of technology and literally everything is at the touch of our fingertips. Honestly though you can wait on what your favorite celebrity has to say or if your crush liked your instagram photo. You’ll be more involved in that than you are into your work.
If you have trouble in a certain subject and there is no assigned seating, take advantage of the front. I guarantee you’ll learn more.
Ask your teacher what exactly you’ll need to know. If you’re taking notes during the year, write in the margins whether or not it will be tested. It will be easier to know what you will be tested on.
Save your exams. Half the time your teachers use the same questions (or questions similar) from your exams on your midterms or finals.
Don’t try to do homework straight afterschool if you can’t, despite what everyone says. Give yourself an hour, and try to get some exercise in. I find it stops me getting bored of sitting down. Not to mention helps me concentrate better.
Don’t just read the material, write it, draw it, recite it, quiz yourself on it! Until you have the material down.
Join clubs, sports, or organizations! You’re guaranteed to find friends in there. You’ll already have common interests. Start with that and go with the flow.
College kids: If you don’t have assigned seating, and you have been sitting in the same seat for 2 weeks. That is you assigned seat now. Don’t move or you’ll screw everyone up and they will hate you.
Color code things, such as your notes. If you want to see how I color code my notes message me and I’ll be happy to show you. 
Be kind to one another.
I think that about does it. So yeah:)

Can you better explain what clipping, miltiply, and luminosity in Sai are

art-and-sterf answered:

Clipping allows you to only colour the area that has pixels on the layer below it.

image


Multiply makes the colour darker, even if it’s the same colour that you’re painting. (It does this by multiplying the hex codes together according to a follower!)

image

Luminosity is similar to multiply, only instead of darker, it brightens up.

Like I used to say before he passed away when I used to be jamfan08 on the Mj community site or as BadEraFan on yahoo answers :King of Pop Stays On Top.
Michael Jackson, although in a different line of art, is one of my inspirations. Here is a water color/ gouache portrait I made of him recently. I truly believe no matter what field you are in you do not only have to look up to those who do what you do, but can also learn from others in other fields and use the knowledge you take from that inspiration into your own craft,

Rest In Peace!

What the difference between government corporations, independent executive agencies and independent regulatory agencies ???

Government Corporations

Some federal agencies resemble corporations in that they function in a businesslike manner and charge clients for their services. Government corporations differ in some important ways from private corporations. For example, government corporations do not have stockholders and do not pay dividends if they make a profit; instead, the government corporation retains all profits.

  • Examples: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which guarantees deposits up to $250,000, and the Post Office are government corporations.

Independent executive agencies are line organizations that do not fall under the control of any one department. Presidents often like new agencies to be independent so that they have more direct control over them. Congress decides how to fit new independent executive agencies within the existing bureaucracy.

An independent regulatory agency is an agency outside of the cabinet departments that makes and enforces rules and regulations. The president nominates people to regulatory boards and agencies, and the Senate confirms them. Generally, these bureaucrats serve set terms in office and can only be removed for illegal behavior. Regulatory agencies tend to function independently from the elected parts of government, which gives them the freedom to make policy without any political interference.

  • Example: The Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Election Commission, and the Federal Reserve Board are all powerful independent regulatory agencies.

Anonymous asked:

please explain what superdelegates are and how they give more authority to party leaders

Alright!

Super Delegates: an informal term commonly used for some of the delegates to the Democratic National Convention (most of the super delegates are seated automatically, based solely on their status as current or former party leaders and elected officials and not on primaries or caucuses).

How they give authority to party leaders: When a candidate enters a race they have to fight for the nomination. The more delegates they win, the more legitimate they appear as contenders. The candidate who appears to have the lead is called the front-runner.
