How to appear to have snow power

It is hard to imagine that people for thousands of years got along without electric power or even running water. Today, there are very few that are prepared to live very long without electricity from the power company. Losing power during the summer is hard enough but losing it during a snow or ice storm creates new challenges.

Thankfully, most power outages don’t last but a few hours depending on where you live. If you live in a medium to large city, most only last a few hours but if you live out of the city limits in the country, it can take a day or more to return power as cities are a priority. However, even if you are in a city, those that are living in an apartment or townhouse have challenges as well. Most people that are living in an apartment or townhouse only have electric heat. If the temperature outside is in the 20’s at night, you can get cold pretty fast if you don’t have power to heat your place. Thankfully most people living in the country have a wood stove or fireplace to use but there are many that don’t.

Here are some of the areas you will want to consider when preparing and what they might cast you.

Light is needed if it is dark when the power is out. A well made flashlight with a bright beam is very important for fixing things and seeing where you are going. I think a reliable, super bright, LED flashlight is important to getting a job done quickly or passing around to different people. I really like the Gerber Cortex Compact Tactical Flashlight. It is sterdy, bright, and you know it is going to work when you need it the most. Another great flashlight that is very useful is a headlamp. When working outside with both hands, like bring in firewood, or chopping firewood in the dark, it makes it so much easer. The other flashlight I recommend is a LED Dynamo Flashlight. You can wind them to recharge them. They are not as bright as a tactical flashlight but I have come to depend on mine not knowing when my batteries might give out and not have electricity to recharge them.

Telephones that are cordless don’t work without power so you will want to have a simple corded one around for emergencies. I found one for about $1.00 at the thrift store that works great. New ones are about $15-20. Cell phones are good but they can go dead on you when you need them most. The Dynamo flashlight that we well also includes a cable for charging your cell phone. Very important.

Heat is needed if you live in a cold climate and it is not summer time. If you have gas logs, a wood burning stove, or fireplace, you should be fine. If you don’t, a propane heater is a great option. They run about $60-$100. Mr. Heater has some nice ones that are safe indoors.

Water storing is especially important if you are on a well with an electric pump or the city water looses pressure. Without power you won’t be able to get water out of the well. I recommend storing about 40 gallons of water for drinking, washing dishes and hands, and cooking with. A set of 5 gallon containers is the best way to go. You can get a 40 gallon kit of 8 for about $144.

Food and cooking is always good to consider especially in the winter. When snow and ice can prevent you from traveling on the roads or even your driveway. It is good to keep food on hand that does not go bad easily like dried fruit, crackers, freeze dried fruits and vegetables, beans, rolled oats, and rice. I recommend storing enough food to last you at least a week for the small storms and disasters and 1-3 months for major turmoil and big disasters.

A simple propane camp stove is a must have for cooking meals and heating water when the power goes out. I recommend a stove like the Stansport Outfitter Series Propane Stove that has 25,000 BTU per burner and Piezo match-free electronic ignition. It is a very solid unit with stainless steel burners and drip pan to make it easy to clean up. They run about $76.

I hope you will consider the importance of being prepared for anything the weather might throw at you. It gives you true peace of mind knowing you have the food, water, and tools needed to handle the next big storm that hits your area.

Snowing! who doesn’t love snow? it adds a calm nature to everything it touches even to the digital world. Greetings that come with snow backgrounds do bring out the cool feel even when there’s no snow outside. So, how about creating these amazing natural elements in PowerPoint bu just using the shapes and simple animations?

As always we repeat this sentence that — Animations in PowerPoint can open windows to your imagination. With little creativity and ideas you can create amazing scenes in PowerPoint and you don’t need to be any professional. All you need to know is what animations to apply and how you can make use of the shapes in the PowerPoint. So in this small piece of tutorial we will walk you through animations that allow you create natural looking snow flakes in PowerPoint.

What you will need?

Microsoft PowerPoint (2010, 2011, 2013)

– For this tutorial we are using PowerPoint 2013.

Follow these steps and observe the images to create animated snow flakes in PowerPoint:

1) Open a Blank Presentation, change the slide background to solid black. See Figure 1 below.

2) Now go to the Insert option within the Ribbon and choose Oval Shape.

3) Change the shape fill to gradient and set the gradient colors to black and white Set the Outline to No Fill.

4) Now re-size the shape to a tiny level, from the format shape options, Apply Glow effect to the shape

5) Now that we have snow flake created, lets apply animation to the shape. From the Animations within Ribbon select the Line from motion path category,

6) After applying the animation, its time to move the shape and enter animation properties i.e duration and repeat. See Figure below and set the values as same as the figure.

7) Now duplicate the shape and create s many slow flakes you want to apply and don’t forget to set different animation delay values, and also increase lengths of the animation path. You can also increase or decrease the sizes of snowflakes.

That’s it you are done creating snow flakes, now play your presentation in SlideShow view and feel snow like scene inside your computer. You can now change the slide background to create new cool look and you can add some clip arts such as trees etc. and create cool scenes in minutes. You can also export them as videos as well.

And yea! If you are stuck somewhere in the middle of the tutorial, don’t worry just download this sample presentations and discover each element’s property.

Thank you for your help.

So, it is better to put slicer/slicers into one report with other visuals rather than trying to combine multiple reports with slicer(s), correct?

I guess I am not sure the difference between Report and Dashboard is. All got mixed up.

I thought Dashboard is the final product with filters (like in Tableau), but it appears that Report is more user friendly (with slicers). Am I correct, or no?

Thanks for your support.

So, I was able to add a slicer into a report where it has 4 visuals (1 slicer and 3 other visuals without slicer) all together.

My initial approach was creating each report separately and PIN them, and also I was trying trying to pin the slicer (that was my first logic). But, I guess Power PI was not developed that way.

My next questions are:

1) In order to use slicer/slicers, do other visuals have to stay within a same report all the time?

Is there way for multiple reports (I guess I need to pin) to be used in dashboard with separate visuals in different reports?

2) What is best practice as far as slicing data (one slicer/multiple slicers/Filers pane)?

Please follow the steps below
1. Go to Modeling Ribon
2. Select your table
3. Select your column
4. Select Percentage
5. Adjust 0 to 2 decimal places

Ok, so I have, e.g. :
26,73
99,3

They are all in decimal display and I want to display them in percentage as follows:
26,73%

You could create a custom column in power query and use this code

This new column will make your data look like 0.2673 as an example.

The original column first need to be a text data type and you might have to change the delimiter in the code 0.0 -> 0,0 as it depends what regional settings you’re using.

Then change the datatype to decimal and than you can follow what @Mariusz provided and it should work

I forgot to mention, I have negative percentages also.
It’s a margin percentage column. Any idea if I can incorporate

an if statement for negative cells?

I get errors when I want to close and apply the query editor because

negative cells have this data now:

0.-6321 for -63.21 e.g.

Sorry, i don’t have a lot of time so excuse the less elegant solution.

To make it easy i would add another simple custom column BEFORE creating the one in the previous post.

This removes the negative/minus symbol (we will add it back in the next custom column)

After this change the column i provided in the previous post to this. (Make sure this column is created after the one right above)

Replace [Column] with your original data column and [CustomColumn] with the simple custom column.

Then change it to decimal and then do the same procedure to changing it to percentage.

If you have any further problems just ask but it might be some time before i’m able to answer

Texas is nearing the end of what Gov. Greg Abbott (R) called "a once-in-every-120-year cold front," but that doesn't entirely explain why more than a million households still had no electricity early Thursday, after three full days of below-freezing temperatures. Plenty of places in the world keep their power on in prolonged arctic weather, and so did parts of Texas.

Those edges of Texas, including El Paso, "are primarily in areas outside of those supported by ERCOT, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which manages the electric grid for 90 percent of the state and operates separately from federal oversight and regulation," KHOU 11 Houston reported Wednesday night.

After the 2011 winter freeze, El Paso Electric, on the Western Interconnect grid, spent heavily to "winterize our equipment and facilities so they could stand minus-10 degree weather for a sustained period of time," Eddie Gutierrez, an El Paso Electric spokesman, told KHOU. So this year, "we had about three thousand people that were out during this period, a thousand of them had outages that were less than five minutes."

On the other side of Texas, near the Louisiana border, the city of Beaumont also appears to have weather the storm without massive outages. Entergy, which powers Beaumont on the Eastern Interconnect grid, told KHOU it also winterized its infrastructure after the 2011 storm. Weatherizing power generation and extraction equipment is voluntary in Texas, though the state legislature will probably revisit that strategy when it dissects ERCOT this year.

When you start a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows 7 for the first time, one or more of the following icons do not appear in the notification area in the lower-right corner of the screen.

The Network icon

The Volume icon

You may also notice that the check boxes for the related system icons are not selected on the Notification Area tab of the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box. However, the network, volume, and power features function correctly even though their associated icons do not appear in the notification area. You can access these features by using Control Panel.

If you gave your computer enough time to finish the startup service initializations before you restarted it, and one or more of the system icons still do not appear in the notification area after the restart, you can make them reappear by deleting two subkeys from the registry.

Resolution

When you first start a new computer, the operating system typically runs startup service initializations that may take from one to six hours to finish, depending on which applications are preloaded on the computer. Make sure that you give the operating system sufficient time to finish these startup service initializations before you shut down or restart the computer. This issue typically will not recur after the operating system has finished initializing all the background services before it is restarted.

Note You can determine whether these service initializations are finished by observing the hard disk light activity (if your computer has this feature). If the hard disk drive light blinks intermittently instead of being solidly lit, these service initializations might be finished. You can also check CPU usage on the Performance tab in Windows Task Manager. If CPU usage is less than 15 percent, the service initializations are probably completed, and you can shut down or restart the computer. You can make the icons reappear by deleting two subkeys from the registry. To do this, follow these steps.

Note You may have to reapply this workaround after you restart the computer if the icons still do not appear in the notification area.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

Click Start , type regedit in the Start Search box or the Serach programs and files box, and then press ENTER.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

In the Details pane, click the IconStreams registry entry.

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click Yes.

In the Details pane, click the PastIconsStream registry entry.

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click Yes.

Exit Registry Editor.

Restart the Explorer.exe process. To do these, follow these steps:

On the Processes tab in Task Manager, click the explorer.exe process, and then click End Process two times.

On the File menu, click New Tasks (Run), type explorer, and then click OK.

Exit Task Manager.

If you are running Windows 7, follow these additional steps:

Click Start , type Customize icons and then click Customize icons on the task bar.

Click Turn system icons on or off, and then set Volume, Network, and Power System to On.

Click OK, make sure that the behavior for Power, Network, and Volume are set correctly, and then click OK.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz returns from Cancun after backlash: "It was obviously a mistake"

From CNN’s Keith Allen

How to appear to have snow powerKTRK

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said flying to Cancun while much of his state suffers without power or water was a mistake.

“I was trying to be a dad. And all of us have made decisions, when you got two girls who have been cold for two days and haven’t had heat or power and they’re saying, ‘Hey look, we don’t have school, why don’t we go. Let’s get out of here.’ I think there are a lot of parents that would be like, ‘Alright let me see if I can do this, great!’ That’s what I wanted to do.”

Cruz also said he regretted leaving his home state in the middle of a crisis almost as soon as he boarded the plane for Cancun.

“I started having second thoughts almost the moment I sat down on the plane, because on the one hand, all of us who are parents have a responsibility to take care of our kids, take care of our family, that’s something Texans have been doing across the state,” Cruz said.

“But I also have a responsibility that I take very seriously of for the state of Texas and frankly, leaving when so many Texans were hurting didn’t feel right and so I changed my return flight and flew back on the first available flight I could take,” Cruz continued.

“I couldn’t take a morning flight because the current restrictions require a Covid test, so I had to get a Covid test this morning, before I could get on a flight back, so I took the first flight I could get after getting the Covid test and testing negative.”

With protesters audible outside his home, Cruz said he understands the anger many Texans feel toward his decision.

“Of course, I understand why people are upset. Listen, we’re in a strange time where we’re Twitter’s been going crazy and the media is going crazy and there’s a lot of venom and vitriol that I think is unfortunate frankly on both sides,” Cruz said. “I think everyone ought to treat each other with respect and decency and try to understand each other more particularly at a time of crisis.”

Cruz lauded Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for calling for an investigation into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas’ activities once power is restored.

Mother Nature Not Cooperating? Make Snow With a Pressure Washer

If you want to see or play in snow, but Mother Nature won't cooperate, you can take matters into your own hands and make snow yourself. This is the homemade version of real water ice snow, just like the snow that falls from the sky.

What You Need

You need the same things found in nature: water and cold temperature. You turn the water into snow by dispersing it into particles small enough to freeze in the cold air.

  • Water
  • Pressure nozzle

There is a handy snowmaking weather tool that will tell you whether you have the proper conditions for making snow. In some climates, the only way you’ll be able to make snow is if you chill a room indoors (or you can make fake snow), but much of the world can make real snow at least a few days out of the year.

Pressure Nozzle

You have several options:

  • Pressure washer (own or rent, use a fine mist nozzle or use a nozzle specially designed for producing snow)
  • Snow cannon (not affordable to buy, but can be rented)
  • Garden hose with a snow attachment (makes less snow per hour than the pressure washer or snow cannon, but still fun)

Note: Simply using a mister attached to a garden hose isn't likely to work unless the temperature is very cold. The "mist" particles may not be small enough or far enough apart to turn water into ice.

Fine Mist

All you need to do is spray a fine mist of water into the air so it cools down enough to freeze into water ice or snow. There's a technique to this.

Spray at Angle

You’ll get much better results if you point your water spray upward at a 45-degree angle rather than straight up. The amount of air you get mixed in with the water makes a difference, so you want to maximize this.

Water Cold as Possible

You also want the water to be as cold as possible, so water from a cold stream will work better than, say, heated water from your home.

Impurities Are Good

The water from a stream or river also has the advantage of containing impurities which can act as nucleation sites to provide a surface on which snow crystals can grow.

Add a 'Nucleating Agent'

It's also possible to add what is called a 'nucleating agent' to your water which will accomplish the same purpose, essentially allowing you to produce snow at slightly warmer temperatures.

The nucleating agent typically is a non-toxic polymer. Snow machines for ski resorts can use this effect to make snow even if the temperature is above freezing. If your water supply naturally contains a bit of sand, this can help you make snow at slightly warmer temperatures than if you were using pure water.

You need only a few hours of cold to make a lot of snow. The snow will last longer if the temperature stays cold, but it will take a while to melt even if it warms up.

Use Boiling Water

If the temperature outdoors is extremely cold, it’s actually easier to make snow using boiling hot water than cold water. This technique works reliably only if the temperature is at least 25 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (below -32 °C). To do this, throw a pan of freshly boiled water into the air.

Easy and Spectacular

It seems counter-intuitive that boiling water would readily turn to snow. How does it work? Boiling water has a high vapor pressure. The water is very close to making the transition between a liquid and a gas. Throwing the boiling water into the air offers the molecules a lot of surface area exposed to freezing temperatures. The transition is easy and spectacular.

Protect Hands and Face

While it's likely anyone performing this process would be bundled up against the extreme cold, take care to protect your hands and face from the boiling water. Sloshing a pan of boiling water onto skin by accident can cause a burn. The cold weather numbs skin, so there's an increased risk of getting a burn and not noticing it right away. Similarly, at such a cold temperature, there is a significant risk of frostbite to exposed skin.

Microsoft has added an “Ultimate Performance” power scheme to Windows 10 April 2018 Update. It’s built upon the High-Performance power scheme but tries to eke out every little bit of performance possible. Here’s how to enable it.

What is the Ultimate Performance Power Plan?

The Ultimate Performace power plan is designed to give an extra boost to high-power systems (think workstations and servers) by optimizing the High-Performance power plan. It’s geared toward reducing or eliminating micro-latencies associated with fine-grained power management techniques. A micro-latency is just the slight delay between when your OS recognizes that a piece of hardware needs more power and when it delivers that power. Although this may only be a fraction of a second, it can make a difference.

The Ultimate Performance plan eliminates the polling of hardware to see if it needs more juice and lets the hardware to consume all the power it needs. Also, any power-saving features are disabled to improve performance even more. Because of this, machines that operate on battery power aren’t given this option by default, as it can consume more power and kill your battery much faster.

While you may be thinking this would be great for gaming rigs, don’t get your hopes up.

The Ultimate Performance plan improves speed on systems where hardware continually goes to and from an idle state. But when you’re running a game, all your hardware already works together to populate the environment around you. The only real improvement might come upon initial startup, and you might only see a boost of a couple of frames per second. However, if you are running video editing or 3D design software that are putting occasional heavy loads on your hardware, you might see more of an improvement.

There is an important caveat here. Enabling this plan will increase the amount of power your system consumes, so if you do plan on using this profile on your laptop, make sure you are plugged in at all times.

How to Enable the Ultimate Performance Power Plan

Hit Windows+I to open the Settings app and then click the “System” category.

How to appear to have snow power

On the System page, click the “Power & Sleep” tab on the left. On the right, click the “Additional Power Settings” link under the “Related Settings” section.

In the window that pops up, click “Show Additional Plans” and then click the “Ultimate Performance” option.

How to appear to have snow power

If you’re using a laptop, this option may not appear under this section.

How to appear to have snow power

What to Do if You Don’t See the Ultimate Performance Plan

On some systems (mostly on laptops, but also on some desktops), you might not see the Ultimate Performance plan in your settings app. If you don’t, you can add it with a quick Command Prompt or PowerShell command. The command is the same for either shell, so use whichever one you want.

You’ll need to open the Command Prompt or PowerShell with administrative privileges. For Command Prompt, hit Start, type “cmd” into the search box, right-click the Command Prompt result, and choose “Run As Administrator.” For PowerShell, hit Windows+X and choose the “Windows PowerShell (Admin) option.”

At the prompt, type (or copy and paste) the following command and then hit Enter:

How to appear to have snow power

If you already have the Power Options window open, you might have to close and reopen it before you see the plan appear, but it should be there.

If you don’t want to see the plan anymore, you can remove it from the Settings app. First, switch to a different plan. If you try to delete a plan you’re currently using, you can run into errors.

Next, click the “Change Plan Settings” link to the right of the plan and then click “Delete This Plan.”

I think of pink at sundown, when the next day will be dry and clear. I will have to look for pink before a snowfall. I am interested to see the answers.

I always went by red sky at night sailors delight, red sky in the morning sailors warning, otherwise I have no clue but wiki says this:

Cloud iridescence occurring in clouds

Sunset reflecting shades of grey and pink in clouds.
The color of a cloud, as seen from the Earth, tells much about what is going on inside the cloud. Dense deep tropospheric clouds exhibit a high reflectance (70% to 95%) throughout the visible spectrum. Tiny particles of water are densely packed and sunlight cannot penetrate far into the cloud before it is reflected out, giving a cloud its characteristic white color, especially when viewed from the top. Cloud droplets tend to scatter light efficiently, so that the intensity of the solar radiation decreases with depth into the gases. As a result, the cloud base can vary from a very light to very dark grey depending on the cloud’s thickness and how much light is being reflected or transmitted back to the observer. Thin clouds may look white or appear to have acquired the color of their environment or background. High tropospheric and non-tropospheric clouds appear mostly white if composed entirely of ice crystals and/or supercooled water droplets.

As a tropospheric cloud matures, the dense water droplets may combine to produce larger droplets, which may combine to form droplets large enough to fall as rain. By this process of accumulation, the space between droplets becomes increasingly larger, permitting light to penetrate farther into the cloud. If the cloud is sufficiently large and the droplets within are spaced far enough apart, it may be that a percentage of the light which enters the cloud is not reflected back out before it is absorbed. A simple example of this is being able to see farther in heavy rain than in heavy fog. This process of reflection/absorption is what causes the range of cloud color from white to black.

Other colors occur naturally in clouds. Bluish-grey is the result of light scattering within the cloud. In the visible spectrum, blue and green are at the short end of light’s visible wavelengths, while red and yellow are at the long end. The short rays are more easily scattered by water droplets, and the long rays are more likely to be absorbed. The bluish color is evidence that such scattering is being produced by rain-sized droplets in the cloud.

A greenish tinge to a cloud is produced when sunlight is scattered by ice. A cumulonimbus cloud emitting green is an imminent sign of heavy rain, hail, strong winds and possible tornadoes.

Yellowish clouds are rare but may occur in the late spring through early fall months during forest fire season. The yellow color is due to the presence of pollutants in the smoke.

Red, orange and pink clouds occur almost entirely at sunrise/sunset and are the result of the scattering of sunlight by the atmosphere. The clouds do not become that color; they are reflecting long and unscattered rays of sunlight, which are predominant at those hours. The effect is much like if one were to shine a red spotlight on a white sheet. In combination with large, mature thunderheads this can produce blood-red clouds.

Clouds look darker in the near-infrared because water absorbs solar radiation at those wavelengths.

“Red sky at night-a sailors delight. Red sky in morning-sailors warning” This was passed on to me by my grandfather. He said if the sky is red in the morning the weather will be good, but red in the morning and look for the weather to turn. I looked it up and found that when the sun is low in the sky as it is in morning and evening it’s light is shining through the thickest part of the atmosphere. When the sky at night is red it is the light coming through a heavy concentration of dust and high pressure coming in from the west…meaning good weather should follow. When the sun rises in the east and is red, the light is shining through a weather system that just passed and a fiery red could mean alot of moisture meaning rain is coming. Dont know if it is related to snowing, but I would guess that its just the moisture in the clouds reflecting the light.

Here we get a lot of snow. The cloud cover always seems to be gunmetal grey. I do not recall seeing a pink cast, but I will have a chance tomorrow night and Wed. morning to check yet again.

Get a glass prism, hold it in sunlight and look at the colors. Same principle applies with clouds and light refraction.

If you’ve read this post, you already know about the presentations you can design with Canva. Doing presentations with this tool is quite simple, and the results can be surprisingly good even if you don’t have any slide design skills.

But let us show you how you can bring your presentation game way further with a few animation tips prepared by us, your friendly presentation agency.

Pros and Cons of Animating slides in Canva

The free account in Canva comes with a few simple animations you can use to breathe some life into your slides. You can use them to add some smooth motion between your slides that looks like this:

Here are a few reasons why you might like animating slides in Canva:

Simplicity. Animating all objects on the slide is just a single click away.

Aesthetics. The animations are smooth, fast, and easy on the eye.

Speed. Animating your entire presentation can happen in less than a minute.

Here are a few reasons why you might prefer animating in PowerPoint:

Lack of timing settings. Canva doesn’t have many effect options that let you set an animation’s timing, delay, and duration. This is important if your story demands that different objects appear at a specific time and not all at once.

No diversity. Canva only has 5 free animations, while PowerPoint has over 45 animations and 48 transitions you can use in any way you want. This gives you a lot more creative freedom in case you want to use motion to drive your story forward, instead of using simple effects just for the sake of it.

Limited control. Unlike Canva, PowerPoint lets you add motion effects to each separate object on your slide. This means You can add multiple animations to the same slide and control the order in which they appear during your presentation.

Let’s show you a few examples of animations and transitions you can use in PowerPoint for a presentation you originally designed in Canva.

Timing, duration, and delay

So our Canva-designed presentation is now inside PowerPoint, where we’ve added the Float In animation, which is the equivalent of Canva’s Rise animation.

However, PowerPoint lets you arrange the timings of each separate element. This way, they appear one after another, instead of all at once based on a single action.

You can do this by accessing the Animation Pane and customizing the settings for duration and delay. Also, you can change the starting point of each animation to be either On Click or With Previous .

In this example, all objects are set to start With Previous after the main headline.

Morphing from one slide to the next

Here’s another critical difference between Canva’s transitions and the ones you can build in PowerPoint.

By using transitions like Morph, you can create motion effects that are more engaging for the human brain. How? By taking one element from the current slide and transforming it into an element from the next slide.

This way, your audience stays connected to the content, instead of letting it slip out of their minds, even if it’s for a fraction of a second.

Combine multiple animations into one slide

Another advantage of animating your Canva presentation in PowerPoint is having the ability to add motion to different objects using unique effects.

Sometimes the story of your presentation requires the motion to be a bit more diverse and include animations with a different style, starting point, and direction.

Here’s an example of how different elements appear from different directions into the slide. This can depend on multiple factors, such as the shape of the visual elements, where they are placed on the slide, and where they stand in the hierarchy of the slide content.

Want to keep learning?

Yes, animating your presentation in PowerPoint will take a bit more than a minute, unlike in Canva, but the level of audience engagement your slides will generate will be beyond comparison.

The Magic Mirror, also referred to simply as The Mirror is a magical artifact that plays a large role in Snow White and the Huntsman and The Huntsman: Winter’s War. It appears to be sentient to a certain degree and possesses the ability to answer any question asked of it with nothing but the absolute truth; it also seems to have several other abilities. The Mirror was owned by Queen Ravenna and was vital to many of her plots.

Physical appearance [ ]

The Magic Mirror resembles a very large, golden disc with a flat, reflective surface. It has what appears to be runes carved around the edge of the mirror. It’s not clear what material the Mirror is made from – it appears to be polished gold, but it can broken like glass. It’s possible it is made from a magical material or that’s it’s appearance is due to it’s supernatural nature.

Powers and Abilities [ ]

The Mirror has many magical abilities – the full extent of which may be unknown. Most notably, the Mirror has the power to answer any question with complete truth – and by extent, it can predict the future. It seems to manifest this as an entity known only as the Mirror Man. The Mirror claims it only ever speaks the truth and so far, this has been proved correct. A person can also encase their spirit inside the Mirror and thus become part of it. They can also manipulate the Mirror’s powers to communicate with other people and even influence their minds, provided it is in close proximity to said persons. It is unknown if the Mirror can do this of its own accord or it must be inhabited by a spirit. A magic user can also free and resurrect a spirit from the Mirror, but only by employing the correct spell. Afterward, however, the resurrected person is still technically a part of the Mirror, meaning they can only be injured or permanently killed should the Mirror be damaged. The Mirror can also create a projection of past events. It is theorised – though never proven – that the Mirror’s dark powers can only be suppressed in the Sanctuary; that being said, the Mirror’s entity appears to be neutral rather than truly evil and it’s primary ability – to answer any question with nothing but the truth – is not an inherently evil power. Therefore, it’s possible that the Mirror itself is not ‘evil’ – it is the way it is used by its owner. The Mirror is not impervious to damage from heavy objects – such as an axe – and can also be damaged by extremely cold temperatures, such as magically-generated ice.

History [ ]

It is unknown who made the Mirror, where it came from or when it was made. It would seem it possesses a dark power and that only those with magic can use it, which would suggest a dark magic-user constructed it. Eventually, the Mirror came into the possession of the sorceress Ravenna, who brought the Mirror wherever she went and used its powers to aid her in conquering various kingdoms. The Mirror told Ravenna that her niece would grow to become fairer than her and that, should she die, the child’s mother, Freya would unleash a power “like none the world had seen.” The first part of the prophecy prompted Ravenna to kill Freya’s daughter and frame her lover, the Duke of Blackwood, for it, thus causing the second part of the prophecy to come true: upon realising her daughter was dead and believing the Duke had betrayed her, Freya’s overwhelming grief caused her long-dormant powers of cryokinesis to awaken.

Years later, Ravenna took the Mirror with her to Tabor, where she had it installed in her private rooms in the castle after murdering her new husband King Magnus and usurping the throne. She immediately asked the Mirror whom the fairest of them all was, to which it told her that she remained the fairest. Ten years afterwards, the Mirror told Ravenna on the eighteenth birthday of her stepdaughter, Snow White, that the princess had now surpassed her as the fairest and had the power to defeat her. However, it also predicted that should Ravenna consume her heart, she would be all-powerful, for all eternity. This never came to pass, because, as the Mirror had predicted, Snow White fatally wounded Ravenna and took back her throne. Ravenna physically died, but was able to transfer her spirit into the Mirror, though she became trapped. She was able to use the Mirror to torment Snow White, who initially kept it locked away, having no use for it herself (and perhaps being incapable of using it).

When the Mirror’s dark and forbidding presence grew too strong, Snow White ordered it be taken to the Sanctuary, believing the good magic of the place would be able to suppress the Mirror’s evil. Unfortunately, the Mirror was able to influence the guards escorting it and caused them to turn on each other. King William tasked Eric the Huntsman and the dwarves with finding the Mirror and bringing it to the Sanctuary, but it was intercepted by Freya, who sought the Mirror’s powers for herself. The Mirror was taken to the throne room of Freya’s ice palace, where she was compelled to recite the spell that resurrected her sister Ravenna from the Mirror. Freya later forced Ravenna to use the Mirror and reveal to her what she had done to “make her strong” – the Mirror showed Freya a vision from the past, revealing how Ravenna put a spell of the Duke to control him and forced him to kill his and Freya’s daughter. Whilst battling Ravenna, Freya used her powers to freeze the Mirror, damaging it and weakening Ravenna. Eric was able to hurl his axe at the Mirror, causing it to shatter, seemingly killing Ravenna a second time and destroying the Mirror permanently. That being said, a golden raven can briefly be seen flying away, thus suggesting that some fragment of the Mirror – and by extension, Ravenna’s spirit – may have survived.

How to appear to have snow power

Snowflakes are formed in the atmosphere, and then gravity takes over causing the snowflakes to fall to the ground.

Snow refers to a type of ice crystals precipitated from the atmosphere which experience numerous changes upon falling on the surface of the earth. When talking about snow, it is important to remember that it is related to the entire life cycle of water that is from liquid state through solid and finally back to vapor.

Snow is formed when the weather is cold enough to allow it. In the places where there are lengthy periods of cold weather, such as two years or more, then a glacier may be formed; this happens in few places though. For most places, the snow melts away as summer approaches. This water is then evaporated back into the atmosphere and the cycle continues.

Snow Formation

There are a few conditions that must be met for snow to be formed. First of all, the atmospheric temperature must be low enough. Contrary to popular belief, the temperatures do not need to be below zero for snow to form. The requisite temperature is below 2⁰ Celsius. Since snow is made out of water vapor in the atmosphere, it holds the simple logic that water vapor should be present. Lastly, the ice crystals must collide so that they form even bigger ice crystals called snowflakes. The reason for this last requirement is rather simple. For snow to form, the ice crystals must fall to the ground. However, by themselves they are not heavy enough to be pulled by gravity. On the other hand, snowflakes are heavy enough.

“Wet” and “Dry” Snow

These two terms can be misleading. Snow is water in the solid state so it can be confusing when snow is defined as “dry” or “wet”. Snow is defined as wet if there is a presence of water. In the context of snow formation, “dry” and “wet” are not used literally. Instead, they are used to provide a distinction based on how each type of snow is formed and the resulting property of either type.

When the snowflakes are formed in the atmosphere, gravity takes over. If snowflakes fall through air that is dry, the outer parts of the snowflakes will dry up. Consequently, the adhesion between the snow particles will be weaker. The resulting snow will be less compact and light, in fact, it will be light enough to be blown by winds. This snow is very suitable for ice sports and is called “dry” snow.

If temperatures are slightly warmer than 0⁰, then the snowflakes falling through the air will slightly melt. They become watery on the outside and the water on the outside the snowflakes allows for more cohesion between water particles. The resulting snowflakes are bigger but also more compact. The ice formed also bears the characteristics of its snowflakes. This kind of snow is useful for fun activities like making a snow man due to its compactness. This type of snow is described as wet.

How to appear to have snow power

Snowy (French: Milou) is Tintin’s Wire Fox Terrier dog and a protagonist of the series. The bond between the two is significantly strong, as they have saved each other’s lives numerous times throughout the series. Snowy seldom “speaks”, but is instead seen thinking. When we are in Snowy’s mind, it generally consists of a debate between a “good” and “bad” version of Snowy’s conscience. This usually ends up in catastrophe for Snowy, as usually the “wrong” choice is made. Finally, note the interesting evolution of the character over the albums, lost the gift of thought expressed in words to images and content become virtually silent. Snowy is clearly able to communicate with Tintin in the series. Like Captain Haddock, Snowy is quite fond of Loch Lomond brand whisky. Snowy rarely leaves Tintin’s side intentionally, only doing so when the two have been forcefully separated. Unfailingly, the pair are always reunited at the end of the adventure.

Contents

History

From the very beginning, Snowy is the inseparable companion of Tintin and follows him everywhere, against all odds, through many ups and downs faced by his master. Although Snowy is a dog, he has a surprisingly lively and alert character, thinks and feels, but communicates by speaking with people in Tintin in America. He is rather boastful, mocking, quite likely, superstitious and very sensitive. He is sometimes faced with problems of moral order, racked between duty and his old demons (including alcohol and bones). Over the adventures he shows more homebody [?]. Snowy has a good general knowledge and always answers to his master. Snowy is a quadruped land mammal. In this sense, he has a keen flair and a great intuition. Often, he urges against dangerous situations where his master will get involved, but he is always there to come to the rescue. He also knows when there is unseen danger and tries to alert Tintin. As a dog, Snowy loves bones. However, he takes this to the extreme, which is to say to the greediness which will impose difficult choices in certain situations. He is also fond of all kinds of meats and sausages, especially chicken. Snowy has a taste for alcohol, especially the whisky “Loch Lomond.” He does not disdain either rum or champagne. Snowy has little contact with people other than Tintin and his friends. On many occasions, the opponents of Tintin try to eliminate Snowy, often trying to chloroform him, but to no avail. However, he maintains much more friendly relationships with children such as the Crown Prince of Gaipajama, Zorrino and Lobsang. His relationships with other animals are equally as difficult. Attacked from all sides by boa, buffalo, goat, condor, crab, crocodile, gorilla, eel, hedgehog, cow, parrots and other wild beasts, Snowy seems far removed from its congeners. He also demonstrated arachnophobia, a fear of spiders. In Marlinspike Hall, Snowy at first had a tense relationship with the resident cat, until befriending it over time.

Early Works

Originally Snowy was the sole source of dry and cynical commentary of Hergé’s work, to try and balance out Tintin’s more positive and optimistic outlook. Snowy’s original French name, Milou, is notably similar to the nickname of Hergé’s first girlfriend, “Malou” (a contraction of the name Marie-Louise). [1] “Milou” seems to be intended as a masculine form of “Malou”, since Snowy is referred to as male through the entire series.

Later Adventures

Snowy’s character has evolved over the course of The Adventures of Tintin series, particularly after the introduction of Captain Haddock’s character in The Crab with the Golden Claws. Before Haddock’s first appearance Snowy was the chief source of cynicism and alternate viewpoints. Snowy’s part then slowly changed into a more light-hearted role of comic relief, examples being how he chases the cat at Marlinspike Hall (until they become friendly at the end of The Calculus Affair) and drinks the Captain’s whiskey.

Personality and characteristics

Throughout the series, Snowy is Tintin’s sidekick and companion on journeys. Along with Tintin he is the only character to appear in all of the comic albums. In the debut album Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Snowy is a source of comic relief. Throughout the first eight stories Snowy is the series’ co-star, able to understand human language, and communicates with speech bubbles. His verbal responses to various situations include jokes, expressions of fright, and pleas to Tintin to exercise caution. In the early albums he takes an interest in mechanics and geography; in Tintin in the Congo, he makes biblical references. As a dog, he also sniffs, tracks, chases, and bites.

The character of Snowy evolved through the course of the Tintin series. In early works he exchanges dialog with other characters, including animals, and provides a running commentary on the situation. His character then became affected by the introduction of Captain Haddock in The Crab with the Golden Claws. Before Haddock’s appearance, Snowy was the source of dry and cynical side-commentary, which balanced out Tintin’s constantly positive, optimistic perspective. When Haddock entered the series, the Captain took over the role of the cynic, and Snowy gradually shifted into a more light-hearted role, having dialog only with Tintin.

Snowy is portrayed as brave and is often fearless, even against much larger creatures when Tintin is threatened. He has no qualms attacking animals larger than himself, which consistently leads to him being sacrificed by humans, although he is always rescued. These can be seen in Cigars of the Pharaoh and The Broken Ear. He repeatedly frees Tintin from captivity, saving him from dangerous situations, and will sometimes identify a villain before Tintin. The Black Island and The Shooting Star show his only fear of arachnophobia. Snowy is loyal to Tintin and always wishes to stay by his master’s side: in a scene in The Shooting Star when Tintin temporarily abandoned him, Snowy was inconsolable.

Snowy loves whiskey, and occasionally gets drunk (as occurred in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Tintin in Tibet and Tintin and the Picaros. His appetite for food is the basis for several short, comical sequences. The dog’s biggest lust is for bones. This is repeatedly the centre of moral dilemmas, as Snowy has to decide between carrying out important tasks, such as carrying an SOS message, and picking up a bone, as evidenced in King Ottokar’s Sceptre. Snowy indulges in rowdy behaviour chasing the Siamese cat at Marlinspike Hall until the two become friends at the end of The Calculus Affair. Snowy often adds to the story in notable ways. For instance, Snowy is the only character in Flight 714 to Sydney to escape mass hypnosis and to know of their abduction by aliens.

Tail Trauma

Snowy’s tail is subjected to various injuries all through The Adventures of Tintin series. These injuries range from being pulled, bitten, shot, and burnt. These traumatic events were used mainly as comic relief and became less numerous as the series continued, due to the introduction of other accident-prone characters such as Thompson and Thomson, Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus, which add to the comedic tone the series is known for.

Create more engaging and instructional presentations by adding videos to your slides. Learn the three simple steps for adding video to PowerPoint.

It feels like PowerPoint presentations have been around since the dawn of the computer age, but they’re still one of the most popular way to share information, whether it’s in a meeting, at an event, or for a school project. As the digital age continually reshapes the way we communicate, it also changes for an engaging presentation in any meeting, event, or school project. Learn how to navigate the newest version of PowerPoint to continue to impress your coworkers and convey important information with videos and GIFs.

Adding Videos

There are lots of reasons you might include a video in your presentation, especially as it becomes a more popular format all industries. Videos help the presenter explain information further, enhance the visuals, and excite an audience better. They add interest to what might otherwise be a more muted presentation.

Follow these step-by-step instructions on how to embed a video in PowerPoint:

Step 1: Choose a slide or create a new slide for your video

Step 2: Select Insert and choose Video

Step 3: Choose Online Movie or Movie from File

The screenshot below shows the steps in Office 365 PowerPoint, but the process is identical in newer versions of PowerPoint.

How to add video to Office 365 PowerPoint

For online videos, you can select a video from YouTube and copy the URL. This will add a video from the internet to your PowerPoint presentation. This is a convenient way to share your favorite videos that you’ve discovered, or ones that you’ve uploaded to YouTube yourself. Otherwise, you can select a file from your PC and add your own personal video file to your presentation.

Using Locally Hosted Video Files

When you choose to insert a video from your PC, you are selecting a locally hosted video. Self-hosting allows you to choose a video that you don’t wish to upload to YouTube, or another online hosting service. This is the right option if you want to share a video that you have saved on your computer.

The process of inserting a locally hosted video is easy, but you may experience slower load times and your local videos may not be compatible with playback on mobile devices. A YouTube video is a more dynamic and accessible way to share your videos during a presentation.

Consider uploading your video to YouTube before inserting it into your presentation. This not only offers a more dynamic viewing experience, it also makes it easier to share your PowerPoint with other users.

Adding GIFs

A GIF, or Graphic Interchange Format, is a popular way to share information and create interest — often using humor. These short videos can be added to your PowerPoint presentation to introduce a more human moment. If you’re presenting a very informational slideshow, a GIF helps you pause and re-engage the audience.

The process is similar to adding a video. Here is how to insert a GIF in PowerPoint:

Step 1: Select the slide or create a new slide

Step 2: Choose Insert and click Pictures

Step 3: Find your GIF in the Insert Picture box

Step 4: Click Insert

Note that the GIF animation will only appear when you use the Slide Show presentation option.

There are a number of possible causes for your TV turning on but not producing a picture.

The most common reason is that your TV is on the wrong input. You can typically change the input by pushing a button on your TV remote labelled “input”, “source”, or “TV/Video.” Keep pushing the button to cycle through the inputs until you have your picture back.

If you’re on the correct input and still don’t have a picture, make sure that your cable or satellite receiver is turned on and that all connections are secure. If you’ve done that, you may need to reset your cable box by unplugging it and plugging it back in. If that still doesn’t resolve the issue, try switching to another device. If you have a picture on another device, then there is likely an issue with your signal or the box itself and you will need to contact your provider for service.

Video not matching Audio

There’s nothing more annoying than when you see someone’s mouth moving, but what you are hearing is not in sync. You see someone’s mouth say “hello,” but then you hear “hello” after the mouth stops moving. It’s like watching a foreign film with a voice-over. You will want to go into the audio settings of your TV or cable box and adjust the “audio delay.” This should get you back in sync.

Hearing an Echo

If you’re hearing an echo, you probably have a separate sound system, like a soundbar or surround sound system and you have the volume playing both through your external sound system AND your TV speakers. If you have a separate sound system, you DO NOT want to also have sound playing through your TV speakers, as it will always result in an echo, plus you paid for that separate sound system because it sounds so much better than your TV speakers. You will want to disable, mute, or turn the volume all the way down for your TV speakers and only use your external sound system. This should eliminate the echo.

Picture is pixelating or breaking up

If your TV picture is breaking up, cutting in and out, or pixelating (looks like everything is a bunch of squares), then you probably are experiencing a weak signal. Check all of the connections from the wall to your cable box and from the cable box to your TV to ensure that all connections are tight. If you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll need to contact your cable or satellite provider.

My Flat Screen Plasma, LED, OLED, or QLED has lines or is cracked

If your screen has lines, bring up the TV menu. If the lines run through the menu, or if the screen is cracked, your panel needs to be replaced. This is not a cost effective repair. If you have an extended warranty and there are lines in the panel, the warranty company will likely replace your TV. If the screen is physically cracked, this would not be covered by a warranty and you will unfortunately need to replace your television.

PowerPoint is one of the most commonly used applications for presentations. The app has many tools and options to help you create amazing slides. One of those options is using background images and graphics. Why settle for the normal and simple slide design, when you can make it unique? Now, we will talk about how to edit background graphics in PowerPoint.

How to Edit Background Graphics in PowerPoint

Using this guide you can easily add an image to the slide master. It can appear on every slide in the presentation, or in certain slides. You can also add a watermark, which might be a company logo that you want to include on every slide. To apply an image to all slides, you can follow this guide:

• Apply an Image to All Sides

Step 1. Select Slide Master

Open the PowerPoint presentation, and click on “View” >“Slide Master”. Then, you can select the Slide Master at the top of the thumbnail panel on the left.

Step 2. Choose Format Background

A ribbon will appear, and you need to click on “Background Styles”, and select the “Format Background” option.

Step 3. Insert Background Image

Under the “Format Background” panel, click on “Picture or Texture Fill” if you want to insert pictures or graphics from your computer. Then locate the picture, and then click “Insert”. The image will fill the background of the slide master and all the layout masters below it.

Step 4. Edit the Background Graphics

To create a watermark effect, go to the “Format Background” panel, and slide the “Transparency” bar to the right to change the opacity percentage.

• Apply an Image to Certain Sides

The guide for adding pictures to certain slides is a bit different from the way of applying images to all slides. With that in mind, here is how to apply an image and edit PowerPoint template background graphics.

  • Step 1. Click “Slide Master” on the “View” tab.
  • Step 2. In the “Slide Master” view, click the slide layout or layouts where you want to add pictures. Hold down the “Shift” key while making selections if you want to select multiple layouts.
  • Step 3. Go to “Background Styles” in the “Slide Master” tab, and click “Format Background”. Then you can click “Picture or Texture Fill” to insert a picture from your computer.
  • Step 4. Click on “File” under the “Insert Picture From”. If you have the picture in the clipboard, click on “Clipboard”. Then locate the image you want to add, and then click “Insert”. The image will fill the background for all the slides and layouts that you selected in Step 2.
  • Step 5. To create a watermark effect, you can go to the “Format Background” panel, and slide the transparency bar to the right and change the opacity percentage.

Best PDF Editor – PDFelement

While PowerPoint offers you a variety of options for your presentations, this software can be limited. For example, sharing PowerPoint with people who do not have Microsoft Office is tricky. That is why nowadays, most presentations are in PDF format. You can create the presentation in PowerPoint, and then export it to PDF. And to manage PDF files, you need a powerful PDF tool. We recommend using Wondershare PDFelement – PDF Editor, a one-stop PDF solution, making the PDF experience simple, easy, and seamless. Specifically, you can create, edit, convert and manage PDF documents in a matter of seconds. Here are some of the main features of PDFelement.

  • Drag and drop to create web forms. .
  • Edit text, background, and images within the file.
  • Optimize PDF to reduce the size of the document. into a variety of other formats.
  • Add background and watermark to PDF.
  • Provide free 1GB cloud storage to save documents to cloud.

How to Edit Background for PDF

As we said before, PDFelement can be used to edit the background in your PDF file. This feature works for PDF files or other file formats that are converted into a PDF File. Here is how you can add new background.

Step 1. Open the PDF File

Launch PDFelement and open the PDF file, and then go to “Edit” > “Background” > “New background”.

Step 2. Select the Background

There are many edits you can make to the background. For starters, you can choose one color as the background. Or you can add an image or PDF file from your computer.

Step 3. Edit the Background

Edit the appearance of the background by editing the rotation degree and opacity. You can also change “Scale to target page” from 100% to 0%. What’s more, you can select the “Page Range” you want the background to appear. You can select all the pages in the PDF or just a single page. Or specify exactly which pages you want the background to appear. Once you are done with the edits, click on “OK”.

Note: If at any point you want to change something or remove the background, go to “Edit” > “Background” > “Edit background” to change it.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that when you type a phrase into Google, some of the hits seem to have nothing to do with your original thought. My husband came in last night to tell me that lately one of the search phrases that had brought folks to visit us here was “how to get real magical powers to do whatever we want.” They’re hoping we’ll say that if they burn a little incense and chant the right words, they will achieve their dreams with a minimum of effort. Wouldn’t that be nice? It’s probably why we all write what we do, to make the magic real in the only way we can. The profession of writing looks a little like magic, I suppose. It’s done in seclusion, by people whose faces aren’t on magazine covers every week. The books appear out of thin air on bookstore shelves, and transport readers to wonderlands. And those ideas…that must be magic, for someone to come up with such outlandish thoughts.

I’ve met a number of people over the last ten years who, upon finding out that I was a writer with a goal of publication, would immediately regale me with details about the book they were hoping to write. Not a word was on paper yet, but they were planning on getting started soon. Some of them were waiting for spare time to present itself (like that ever happens!), for someone to come along and do the writing while they shared their ideas (you have to be kidding), or for a publisher to offer them a contract before they bothered starting (honestly, someone said this to me not long ago.) They’re sure that selling a book to a publisher automatically makes the writer richer than Croesus. They want to believe writing is easy.

I’ve also met people who hope to be published. Instead of telling me what they will do someday, they tell me about the 200+ pages they’ve already written, about the worlds they’ve built, the characters who’ve come alive in their imaginations. They know that writing isn’t about the money, and that it isn’t the profession that will save them from their 9-to-5. They know from experience that it’s not easy. But they do it anyway. These are the ones who’ve found the arcane secret of writing – that it isn’t worth doing unless you love it. That is the real magic.

I knew a woman who was bothered by the fact that the 250 words per page rule of thumb was not actually *accurate*, and that a (for example) 400 page manuscript was not actually exactly 100,000 words. She went to some trouble to create an algebraic equation that explained the discrepancy.

She /did/ write, that particular person, but I have to admit the first thing I thought when I heard about the equation is “this person is never going to get published.”

She hasn’t found the magic of it all, clearly.

I met a woman once who said she wanted to be published but was terrified of some agent or editor stealing her work. She sent off a submission packet, which was supposed to consist of the first three chapters and a cover letter, but she sent in thirty random, nonconsecutive pages instead.

Way to shoot yourself in the foot. 😉

*giggles*
Nice post, Misty. Now I must get back to work writing.
*waves magic wand*

I have actually had someone suggest to me that I write his book for him. This person even offered to share the money he made, which he apparently felt was the least he could do. I’m pretty sure he was right….

I told him that I had enough ideas of my own to keep me busy for quite some time, and that perhaps he would do better to write his own book himself. I think he took this for rudeness, because that pretty much killed the conversation.

David! Shame on you! *more giggles*
A former step brother offered me the same deal.
Must admit that I wasn’t hurt when he got miffed.

It goes back to the non-writer POV. They think it’s *easy* for us! Yeah, right. Easy…
Faith

Well, you can’t blame us for wishing it was easy, can you? 🙂

I’ve written enough of my own very pre-publication book to have moved past, well, all of the above laughable theories about how easy it is (yeah, except for wanting someone to write it for me–where’s the fun in that?), but not enough to clue into the “won’t make me instantly rich” idea. I’m fighting that one. It can’t be true! 🙂

Wanted to let you all know that I love your books–I followed a link to this site and had to read everything. I’m almost done (except for David’s–you’re next) and I’m in awe. Do write more. I love your characters, your writing, and this site. Such a nice thing to do, to help out struggling writer-wanna-be’s! Thanks!

Thank you, Robin! What a lovely compliment!

No, we don’t blame you at all for wishing it was easy, because we still do, ourselves. There are nights I’m growling at the computer screen because I don’t know what comes next, and I’m ready to throw things. 😀

Hey David, I wonder if that’s a rite of passage for writers, to have someone offer us the opportunity to write their book for them. It seems to happen far too often…

Magic wand, Faith? I’m a potions girl, me. Mix a little rum with whatever’s on hand, and look at me go! *laughs*

Great post. Everything makes sense now. Writers=magicians. LOL!

People talk about “wanting to write a book” because It sounds prestigious, smart, and accomplished. Unfortunately, in reality, writing is tedious, emotionally taxing, and tiring. Yet, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

It reminded me Stephen Pressfield’ s book
“War of Art” — must read books for every
writer, I think.

He wrote very similar words.

It is indeed magic. I find myself agonizing for hours, days, weeks, even months until the dam breaks, and lo! there springs forth from my pen a book (or an article, or whatever), fully formed as from the head of Zeus.

What I have since learned is this: once I have the topic and make a rough plan, I consciously leave it (worrying all the time about the deadline) while my active little brain continues processing it in the background. Once I’ve panicked long enough, the processing stops and the end result begins to spew out. It’s hell on my stress level, but makes for great continuity! 🙂

I wish there were a different, more leisurely path for me to the finished product, but alas, it seems that this is the method with which I am stuck — it worked in high school (I always got “A”s on the panic papers, and “C”s on the ones I tried to do slowly), it worked in college, it works as a professional.

Magic, of a dark and sinister — and oh, so fun! — kind.

It’s funny how easy some things look before you try them. Golf, writing, playing the piano. Having dabbled here and there while torturing myself waiting for that inspired moment of creative free time, I tried out NaNoWriMo a couple years ago. 50,000 words in the month of November to get those creative juices flowing. And then you realize how much work editing really is…

How to appear to have snow power

The Yuki Yuki no Mi translates to the Snow-Snow Fruit. The Snow Fruit is a Logia type devil fruit that turns the users body into snow, making them a snow human. In the anime this fruit was used by Monet, an assistant of Caesar Clown and a member of the Donquixote Pirates. In the game this fruit can be obtained through buying it from the Black Market, Gacha, and finding it (though it is extremely rare). It costs $2,700,000 and 5 gems.

The Snow fruit is a powerful fruit for both grinding and PvP. It deals massive amounts of damage with huge area of effect, and for PvP its teleportation and X move can be very useful. Overall this fruit is an excellent choice regardless of the purpose a player may want to use it for. But it was nerfed to deal about half the damage it used to, so it’s not the best now.

The damage after the nerf is:

  • Z *0.5 > *0.2 per hit
  • X *0.5 > *0.25 per hit
  • C *1.5 > *0.6 per hit
  • V *1 > *0.325 per hit

Moves

The user blows out snow from their mouth, somewhat like a flamethrower. It has a fairly close range, and it’s aimed based of the users head and not the cursor. It can be held to keep the user suspended, and the player is free to move while using it. The snow itself are snowflakes that damage anyone or anything that’s in it or close to it. The snow breath hits 20 times, each hit deals 825 damage totaling at 16,500 damage. The refresh is 6 seconds.

The most versatile of this move set, the player creates a large hollow sphere made of snow where the cursor is pointed. Anything inside this sphere will be damaged every 1 second. In addition to this the snow is solid, so an enemy player can’t escape from the snow sphere without having to go through some difficulty with their camera to aim it out and use teleportation. Because the sphere is a solid, the user or players can use it as a platform to teleport onto. It can also be used to run away for safety, or for more. Every second 1,030 damage is dealt, totaling at 9,270 damage. The snow sphere lasts for around 9 seconds before disappearing. The refresh starts as soon as the snow sphere is thrown, and takes 20 seconds. As you increase your Power fruit Stat the sphere increases in size, and it’s a good combo starter for the combo x, c, v.(You can escape this imprison by use the E move”Transfer”

The user summons a snow storm where their cursor is pointed. The snow storm is fast, it only appears for 2 seconds. The snow storm itself looks like a twister with snow particles going around it. The AoE is horrible so you have to aim well,and can be summoned from the sky. This can also keep the user suspended. The snow storm hits 3 times, each hit deals 2,470 damage totaling at 7,410 damage. The refresh is 8 seconds.

The most powerful of the four attacks, the player creates a massive snow storm that covers a large area. The user puts out both arms and a snow cloud appears in the sky. The cloud will begin to drop snow flakes which form snow panels on the ground that damage and stun anything that touches them. The damage will multiply as more snow overlaps on top of each other and will easily destroy the majority of npcs. It can be held to keep the user suspended and when used in the air, though if you use it too high in the air the snow panels will still hit the ground but not do any damage but if the snow flakes are able to hit the ground it will still do damage. If the snow fall touches buildings or anything else the snow will also form on top of that as well. The snow will last for 6 seconds before dissolving. The snow panels deal 1,360 per hit dealing 13, 250 damage (More to add on..). The refresh is 15 seconds.

Transfer is a teleportation move that works the exact same as other devil fruit teleports, but it leaves a snow silhouette behind. The player teleports where the cursor is pointed leaving behind a white trail and can teleport into the air, unlike the Kage Kage no Mi. The refresh is 12 seconds.
