Latex and Figures: Ever Had Trouble?






If you did, here is a couple of hints: Converting to .eps makes it all easier. To do this, you may use an online interface, which is free to use: ALL to EPS



This website brings information about the different picture formats. For instance, it explains that .jpg means Joint Photographic Experts Group. 



You can write the name of the file plus its extension inside of the curled brackets with no loss, so do it, since that will make your code clearer.



You are definitely going to need to include at least one line in your preamble: \usepackage{graphicx}



What I am recommending is the Incredible Hulk Solution, like it seems that if you do things in this way, you will have the least amount of chance of having problems, that is, of not having your picture displayed on your .pdf (Portable Document Format) in the end.



The code to be used inside of the file, between the \begin{document} and the \end{document} is:



\begin{figure}[h!]
  \centering
  \includegraphics[width=350pt]{graphs.eps}\\
  \caption{Maple Plot}\label{U}
\end{figure}



The [h!] is to guarantee that the picture will appear where you have placed the just-mentioned lines. The 350pt is a reasonable choice and you can play with that as much as you like via trial and error. graphs.eps was the name of my picture after I converted it from .jpg to .eps (Encapsulated Postscript). The caption, you know, is what you want printed soon after the graph, and the label thing is to allow you to mention this graph in the future, inside of the text, without much hassle. We then used the command \ref{U} in our case. 



If you got a picture that is, for instance, in a horizontal position, but you need it to be in the vertical position, you can try to adjust the angle of display by typing things in this way: 



\begin{figure}[h!]
  \centering
  \includegraphics[width=350pt, angle=90]{graphs.eps}\\
  \caption{Maple Plot}\label{U}
\end{figure}



Then you play with that 90 degrees as you need.

Linkedin and Job Search: The Finest in Terms of Hints







I have recently found this video and I have never watched anything more impressive: The amount of information delivered by this woman is really unbelievable. 


Here a video you will not regret watching if you are really wanting to optimize your use of this wonderful and so modern tool, Linkedin. 


The video brings some propaganda of the company that has built it, but you can easily ignore that and simply get the information, which is really important and looks very reliable.


Super Video

How to Open your Hard Disk






Once the hard disk is open, it will stop being a mystery: I cannot believe it is all like the old LP players my mother had!



I notice that there is a reading head and something that is just like our LP reading system, but, instead of having a vinyl disk, we have one that looks like our CDs.



The main issue you will have is finding the position of the screws it seems to me. 



An WD5000BPVT, like mine, seems to have 8 main screws: 3 hidden on the top of it, under a cover made of foil (three circles), one that is visible and by the first 4/7 of it, one that is not visible and is a bit above the line where this is (closer to the top), to the other side, one right where you read W, and two visible ones to the bottom. 



You will only find opening it easy if you know where the screws are. Once all the screws have been taken out, the metallic cover will easily come out, but, before that, you may end up doing something as ugly as what the boy does in the video:







And this is an example of good and clean work:

How to insert a graph you built with Maple in a Latex document







If you are trying to insert a graph you have just built using Maple in a Latex document, you may struggle for a while until you get to the conclusion that we will here pass to you for free: The easiest way to do that is exporting the plot after placing it on a sheet by itself by means of the tab File from Maple. Choose the option Export As from the tab File from Maple and then export it in a Portable Document Format or in .pdf mode. 



After you do that, place your graph inside of the folder in which you are saving your .tex document from Latex, so that you have less work. If you don't do that, Latex may not be able to find your plot and therefore will not put it on its document pages for you.



Now you copy the command lines 


\begin{figure}[H]

\advance\leftskip-4cm
\includegraphics{yhu.pdf}
\caption{My Picture}

\end{figure}
  

and paste them on the height of the Latex document, .tex file, where you want the graph to appear. Do not forget to replace yhu.pdf with the actual name of YOUR FILE.



Make sure you have included the packages graphics and float through the preamble of the Latex document by typing this



\usepackage{graphics}
\usepackage{float}



And now it is just a matter of saving and compiling the .tex file. You will see the graph with no mistake on the .ps or .pdf file you have produced through the compilation process.

Chapter 1,000,000 th: The Unwanted Line on My MS Word Document







Have you ever had a line appearing in the middle of your MS Word document, a line that appeared as a ghost would: Not invited, and there, in principle, JUST TO TORMENT YOU?





I had that happening to me plenty of times. 





In all other times I started my document again, but this time I was too determined not to investigate this issue further. 





After some mining, I got to the following address: Lines MS.





This address was not good enough, for I did all that they say I should be doing, but the stubborn line was still there.





I then decided to dig further and found a video: MS, Line, Video.





The only possible reference I found on the web for this problem was this procedure, and a few people said it worked for them.





I then said to myself: It has to work for me!





Oh, well, if I had doubts after reading the text, like if I thought that perhaps I had misunderstood or something, the video settled it all: I had to use the borders button.





Oh, well, I simply insisted and repeated the procedure a few times. It finally worked and you can find a proof on this page that it did, so that you are now capable of addressing this LITTLE MS WORD issue yourself too.





Yes, do thank me. As a minimum thing, do our online courses.





Wow, what a drama! It all looks trivial now. See for yourself:

How to Get a Job with Google







So, once more, in the good old American movies spirit (Job with MS), you can offer Google something of real value: Have you noticed that if we use HTML in the title of our website with Blogger, that HTML appears listed in the directory searches?



That is horrible for the eye and feels bad.



Have a look at the image:






Just think about how to fix this and offer yourself as a problem-solver. Will you? I will certainly not engage in this one, so just go for it.

Chrome Problem: Install Java when It Is Installed






You are, for instance, trying to play your beloved games on the Internet: The rectangle usually pops up with no trouble, but now you read Install Java or something similar on your screen. 


Before you try anything else, here it is a very simple thing to do: Visit chrome://flags/ and click the button Enable right below 

Enable NPAPI Mac, Windows
Enables the use of NPAPI plugins. 

and this is usually the 10th option.


Now, go to the bottom of this page, the chrome://flags/ page, and press relaunch now.


Try to run your pop-up rectangle once more and, this time, it should work. 


If you get a picture like the one you see below, then you will probably need to use another browser to run your application because the latest versions of the Google Chrome do not accept the npapi thing. Some people will advise you to add an extension called IE Tab to your Google, but you can simply use the own Internet Explorer instead.

MS Word and the Drama of the Last Page when You Are Using a Template







Nothing nastier, when it comes to editing your text, than having to face the LAST PAGE DRAMA.



There you are, with your beautiful template, perhaps with lots of balls on the cover and all. 



Now, there is a last unwanted page and it will not leave you: You will try all you think is logical, so say you will go to the last page and press the back button on the keyboard or go to the page before the last and press the Del button instead. Notwithstanding, NOTHING that your vain imagination can give you will work.



Accustomed to the daily grind with MS Word, you will try Dr. Google: MS Word, template, last page, and delete, for instance.



You will then find suggestions that go from using the Page Setup function to using the Go To button, but, again, despite what those people say on those pages, NOTHING WILL WORK.



Some examples of your vain attempts will probably be found here: Ref. OneRef. Two, and Ref. Three.



In case you are identifying yourself with the lines above this paragraph, here is what will take you out of misery: SIMPLY EDIT THE SAME WORD DOCUMENT WITH ANOTHER EDITOR



Nowadays, you can download free pieces of software from the Internet at waste, and some of those pieces allow you to cheat on the Platonic rules (Justice) and finally stop having to waste your life with the MS bugs.



You will find one that will finally edit your MS Word document and allow you to delete the page with no further dramas. We have just gone through the WONDER, so that the result is, indeed, guaranteed. 



After you delete the page, just save the document in the original format and come back to Word for the final touches.

Exotic Problems with the MS Word: Embedding Documents, Icon Does Not Show








So, if you are trying to embed, for instance, a .pdf in your document and you are currently unable to see the icon or link or first page in your MS Word document, there is a really simple thing you can try to do, and that simple thing may solve all: Go to Options, which is an item on the menu list for the File tab. Inside of Options, choose Advanced. Inside of Advanced, go to Cut, copy, and paste. Inside of Cut, copy, and paste, go to Insert/paste pictures as. Now choose In front of the text



This is very likely to work if when  you go to Options, which is located under the File tab, and check the box Open e-mail attachments in Full Screen Reading view, you can see the icon.

MS Word: How to Embed a .pdf in a MS Word Document? Some Issues







A really bad miss in the MS Word program: It does not allow us to insert the contents of the .pdf files into the document in an explicit manner. We do have some three embedding options, but none of them is this option, so that somebody could try to get a job with MS by proposing this addition and, obviously, telling them how to do it, basically.



For those who have doubts on how it is done, there is no better source than How To. You will then see that what MS Word does is actually attaching the .pdf file to the MS Word file, so that the person who receives the MS Word file can ALSO access the .pdf, but they will have to click on an icon or on a first page to do that. 



There are then three ways to embed a .pdf file in a MS Word file: link, icon or first page. In all three options, the .pdf file becomes an attachment to the MS Word file, and, as the video explains very well, all is lost if you convert your MS Word document into a .pdf file, that is, it is also not portable in terms of change of format, what, again, gives us the possibility of demanding that a job at MS be given to us based on us being able to offer them the actual how-to.



Nobody can say that on this blog we do not give people chances of becoming a proper member of the human society (with the minimum dignity that a proper job gives us), is it not? Now even ideas on how to live the American Dreams, those that appear in their movies (BIG)... .
