1、On November 30, 2018, I set out to learn web accessibility using the International Association of Accessibility Professionals' (IAAP) certification process as guidance. I spent 100 days studying for their Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS) certification. It's the only way I knew how to become committed to learning.
2、During that period of time, I blogged each day about what I was learning. Eventually, I added my study notes as I prepared for the Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC). Since then, this blog has become a valuable study guide for many folks.
3、My 100 Days journey started with preparation for the Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS) certification. After passing WAS, I eventually prepared for the Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) certification. You can read my journaling through each track.
4、My journey received more attention than I anticipated. Thanks to a lot of (repetive) questions, I've compiled questions and answers that I've received over the past few years.
1、Can we request some from Cypress if they've not thought up all 100 yet? :-) I can think of some ones that require a good mix of analog and digital and software, but I'm not experienced with PSoC platform to know if these are feasible.
2、 PC-controlled curve tracer with current source and with voltage source, for BJT and FET
3、 logging device to capture analog readings via serial port to the PC and ability to set gain via PC, and a current source (so we can optionally log temperature with an RTD).
1、In Japan, babies celebrate their 100 days of birth at the first eating ceremony called ‘Okuizome’, in which a baby will have various types of food, including rice, soup, fish, boiled vegetables, and a stone placed to their lips to symbolise good gastronomic luck and strong, hard teeth. It is also a tradition for the oldest person in the family to ‘feed’ the baby, possibly symbolising longevity.
2、In Korea, 100 days celebration is known as ‘Baek-il’. A family would traditionally pray and give food offerings such as rice and sea mustard soup to thank the Shaman spirit. Some rice cakes are placed within the house according to the four main compass directions so that the baby would be protected. Some families will also share steamed rice cakes with 100 people, particularly family, relatives and friends, in exchange for the baby’s good health and longevity.
3、Modern baby’s 100 days celebrations have been gaining momentum in recent years in Singapore and Hong Kong, mainly driven by millennials aged 25 to 3 Because millennials are less bound by traditions, their baby’s 100 days celebrations allow far more flexibility and creativity than before. Venues are no longer restricted to one’s home, but range from cafés to playrooms to restaurants to hotel ballrooms. Food preference has also become more westernised, typically involving canapés, cute cartoony pastries and large custom-made cake. Other increasingly important additions include helium balloons, personalised banners, balloon artists, magicians, etc. However, it is also noticeable that the traditional style of celebration is making a comeback in the form of modern-traditional hybrid, thanks to the roots-searching millennials.
4、All in all, when it comes to creating the most unforgettable memory on this perfect day, to mark the baby’s first of many firsts, the modern parents will continue to explore creative ideas that will continue to drive the evolution of this perfect day.
1、Some days. when I feel tired, that crick in my neck, I remind myself of the time, at the onset of the pandemic, that I carried a cappucinno, a mocha, a chai tea latte and an iced coffee home. I had to go to Starbucks because Maison Kayser closed. And it looked like Starbucks would close tomorrow.
2、I balanced the morning drinks in their cardboard holder. I carried them home. Decided in the sunlight walk that I would rent that house in the Adirondacks. And we would escape New York.
3、So a year ago to the day, I told the kids, “We’re leaving on Sunday. Pack for two weeks. And we’ll take that dog to foster on the way. And if you don’t like it, you can come home to New York any time.”
4、And then, after a sleepless night, I changed my mind. I said, “We’re leaving tomorrow, Saturday. I don’t know if we’ll get a rented car if I wait a day longer. Everything’s closing. We’ll pick up the dog and not wait for them to drop him off.” The kids argued. They needed more time.
1、“When I started this, I just wanted to do something fun and push my sanity,” Liu recalls. And so, with?a typo while registering her Instagram account, Bloody Dairy was born. The resulting work of the project – which is entirely dual-chromatic, combining red, black, and her adept useage of negative space – was difficult as expected. “I had to finish and upload an animation before 12 am every day, which left me no time to overthink it,” she says. “With a limited time frame and compositional limits – since Instagram only supported square videos at the time – it was interesting to see what I can create inside that little box.” During those 100 days, the inspiration for her delightfully absurd animations ranged from of random musings of?everyday life to observations of her two cats. “Cats are aliens,” she remarked. “Just look at them.”
