Mt. Rushmore The First Major Safe Site Mount Rushmore: The First Major Safe Site? There are a lot of architectural wonders around the world. But it takes a visionâ"and a whole lot of dynamiteâ"to carve a piece of history on a mountain. Thatâs exactly what Gutzon Borglum and a total of 400 skilled workers did when they sculpted the faces of four renowned US presidents in Mount Rushmore! Whatâs even more impressive? Despite the complexity and grand scale of the project, no one died in the process. Our latest blog takes a look at how they defied the odds and completed this ambitious project without any fatality. About Mount Rushmore National Memorial Mount Rushmore National Memorial is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Also known as the âShrine of Democracy,â it depicts the faces of US Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Rooseveltâ"who were chosen for their significant contributions to nation building. Each year, around 3 million people visit the site to marvel at the grand monument. How it began? In the 1920s, state historian Doane Robinson wanted to attract tourists from all over the country to South Dakota. He hired Gutzon Borglum to carve a sculpture of national interest on a mountain that would stand the test of time. Mount Rushmore fit the billâ"it was strong enough to sculpt on, wide enough to fit several figures, and it faced the direction of the morning sunlight. The best part? The estimated rate of the sculptureâs erosion is 1 inch for every 10,000 years! How they did it? Did you know that 90% of the sculpture was carved using dynamites? Considering that around 450,000 tons of rock had to be blasted off, itâs remarkable that there were no deaths during the carving of Mount Rushmore. Furthermore, no special training was required to be part of the team! According to historian Amy Bracewell, They used the men who were willing to do it. 400 miners and settlers from the Black Hills accepted the challenge. At any given time, 30 men with different roles worked on the monument: Blacksmiths â" in charge of forging tools and drill bits Tramway operators â" tasked to oversee how pieces of equipment were shuttled from the foot of the mountain to the work zone Drillers and carvers â" carved while being strapped into manually operated bosun chairs Winch operators â" manned the winch houses Call boys â" shouted instructions to the winch operators Powder men â" cut certain lengths of dynamite sticks and placed them into holes in order to blast out different areas of the granite Under Borglumâs instructions, the crew used red paint to mark off certain features based on thousands of measurements. These skilled workers knew how much dynamite was needed to remove the rocks. In fact, they were so accurateâ"to the point that they managed to get within 3 to 5 inches off the final faces! To remove the remaining granite, workers implemented a honeycomb method using jackhammers, hammers, and chisels. For a smooth finish, the men used a bumper tool that featured a rotating drill bit. The 60-foot tall and 185-foot wide monument took 14 years to complete. Over 70 years later Clearly, Mount Rushmore is a powerful reminder that safety is a team effortâ"and it takes every member of the team to prevent accidents and injuries at work. Nowadays, miner safety standards and training regulations are in place to prepare workers for occupational hazards. Contact 360training.com for more information about new miner training and even annual training for miners.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Solve Coding Problems People always complaint about they cant come up with the right solution. However good approach doesnt come from nowhere. If you analyze the problem in the right direction, those smart answers should come to your mind naturally. Weve been seeing to many candidates struggling to come up with a solution in Gainlo interviews. Thats why in this post, I want to talk about something interesting and different. Weve been elaborating a lot of practical strategies for both preparation and interview in previous posts, now Id like to use an example interview question and explain how a candidate should solve coding problems step by step instead of telling you the final answer directly. The cool thing about it is that you can deeply understand how an interview question is solved from the beginning to the end and what to think of when getting stuck. In other words, I want you to be able to use techniques in this post to solve other questions as well. Question There are a set of dictionary words and a set of license plate numbers. Write a code/algorithm to find the shortest dictionary word which contains all the characters in the license plate. Ex: RC101 is the license plate number. The shortest word that can be found in the dictionary is CAR. This is a popular question that has been asked by many companies and Id like to use this question as an example to guide you how to solve it in a real interview. #1 Clarification Most interview questions are described shortly and there can be some restrictions that are unclear. So the first thing you should do is to clarify anything unclear, which is also what many interviewers evaluate. Look at the example question, there are many things you should clarify in the beginning: How is the dictionary stored? Suppose the interviewer said you can store in any way you like. What about duplicates letters in the plate? Ignore them. Should the letters order be preserved? No. Is there enough memory to store the whole dictionary? Yes. Can I assume that the plate contains only digit and letters? Yes. Are letters in dictionary and plate all capital? Yes. You may not be able to come up with all these questions, but the first three are expected to be clarified in the beginning. You should also realize that digits in the license can be ignored totally. #2 Simplest solution Its good if you can come up with the optimal solution after 10min, but not everyone can do it and in fact, only a few people can do it. A better and safer approach is always talking about whatever solution you have in the beginning, and you can analyze the efficiency to tell the interviewer that you know its not optimal and you will optimize it next. This strategy is very important because it tells the interviewer that first you can solve this problem quickly and correctly. Second, you know that your approach is naive and you are working on optimizing it. Lastly, even if you failed to come up with a better approach, the interviewer can say that this candidate, at least, can solve the problem fast. So back to the example question, brute force is usually something you can come up with first. It should be very easy for you to realize that you can iterate over each word in the dictionary and check if it contains all the letters in the license. If there are n words in the dictionary, then the space complexity is O(n) and time complexity is O(n) for each license (you should be able to come up with this in seconds). #3 Optimization In most cases brute force wont be the best solution in an interview as its too simple. So now you should try to optimize the solution. Normally you can make your algorithm faster (time complexity), consumes less memory (space complexity) or both, and thats why its very important to have the big-O analysis of your existing solution, which gives you some ideas about how to improve. Apparently you can hardly reduce space complexity as you always need to store the dictionary unless you put it in disk, which will be extremely slow to lookup. So our focus is to reduce time complexity, especially the lookup time. The reason the previous solution is slow is that we are iterating over the dictionary one by one. To optimize this, we can sort the dictionary by word length, then we can iterate from the shortest word and stop whenever theres a match. Although the time complexity is still O(n) if you count the worst scenario and ignore the preprocess time, the algorithm is obviously faster in average. This is also a common pattern that by doing preprocessing, you can reduce the lookup time. Another direction we can think of is the classic tradeoff between time and memory. Even if youve no idea about the solution, you should think about how to consume more memory in order to reduce lookup time. More specifically, we need to figure out how to store the dictionary or which data structure to use to make the lookup faster. At this point, I hope something like hash, tree has came into your mind. I suggest you read the analysis above one more time as it tells you exactly how to analyze from the high level and explains why someone can come up with the correct direction. So lets see if hash can make a difference. Since we are looking up certain word that contains all the given letters, its quite natural to make a HashTable keyed by letter and its value can be a list of words containing that letter. Then the solution is clearer now. For each letter in the given license, we can get a list of words containing that letter. And for all these lists, we just need to find the shortest common word among them. If at this point you havent thought of the classic problem finding intersections between two arrays, you need to practice with more coding questions. To sum up, this solution is preprocessing the dictionary into a HashTable keyed by letter and valued by sorted words containing that letter. As mentioned above that you should think about how to store the dictionary to faster lookup. Another approach is to store the dictionary in a prefix tree. Ill leave this solution as a practice for you. If you couldnt figure it out, please drop me an email. #4 Extreme cases Sometimes when you change restrictions to an extreme degree, you may come up with other solutions. This doesnt always work, but its worth to try. The most common approach is assuming we have infinite memory to store whatever we want. For this question, we can use any of the above approaches to get shortest words for ALL the license plates and store the results in a huge hash table. Then the lookup time is reduced to O(1)! Its important to analyze here that we assume license plate doesnt contain too many characters (maybe at most 7) and we have enough memory to store all the permutations and the corresponding words. Summary The question is really just an example and the most important takeaway from this post is the general process that you can use to analyze and solve a coding question. Solutions dont come from nowhere, when you choose a direction to approach, it should be quite natural to think about the relevant techniques you have. Just like when you decide to spend more memory to reduce lookup time, hash/trees should come to your mind immediately. Also, youll notice that Id like to analyze the efficiency (both time and space) immediately after a solution without even being asked to, which gives me clear idea about what can be further optimized and how much potential it has. Did you identify any other patterns?

How to Find Your Dream Career Want to know how to find your dream career? Heres the simple answer: process of elimination. Does that mean that you have to try out every job before you find your dream job? Fortunately, no. Let me explain. Feels Like Chaos I meet with so many people who believe that their dream career is somewhere out there waiting for them to stumble upon. The one and only. Similar to the perfect partner. Not to take the romance out of it, but many times its what I like to call chaos theory. Chaos theory goes something like this, there are many jobs out there in the world and there are so many paths one could go down to reach just one of those jobs. On top of that, everyone seems to have their opinion: mom, dad, uncle Phil, and your friends. But that doesnt make it any easier for each individual to carve out their plan and make their unique stamp on the world. Clusters Help Narrow the Choices Most likely, there are many jobs that would be fulfilling and perhaps meet all your dream career criteria. Most people usually cluster around a certain interest, but then many jobs within that cluster would most likely satisfy you. So, most of us have an idea or hunch of what wed like to pursue. We arrive at this place usually by process of elimination. For example, I like the arts because 1) I dont like business, 2) I cant do math, and 3) I dont want to look at spreadsheets all day. Many times by excluding certain areas we know we wouldnt like, lead us to this cluster of similar jobs. Maybe its non-profits. Maybe its business. Maybe its event planning or working with animals. Try It Out Out of this cluster, we tend to eliminate by trying it out. How do you know if you havent experienced it? Rarely have I seen someone know exactly what they want and then all the stars align and thats exactly what they end up doing until the end of their career ( and everyone lives happily ever after). Now some of you know what you wanted from an early age, but, even in this case, you have to navigate a lot of bumps and surprises to get there. Finding your dream career is going through the messy process of trial and error. Im not sure anyone escapes the hard lessons from the ups and downs when pursuing a lifelong dream. However, there are always the things that werent anticipated that lead us to the next right thing. Find Your Dream Career My recommendation for finding your dream career then is to follow these three tenets: Trust yourself and your instinct of knowing what you like and dont like. Eliminate as many jobs as you can. Dont let fear get in the way of telling yourself you are worth it! So many times, something holds us back before jumping in with both feet. Its fear of failure, maybe even fear of success. Or you doubt that you will like a certain job OR doubt that you will make the difference you once thought you would. If Ive hit home, youre not alone! Consider a career coach or other professional to help you move to the next phase of your journey in a structured way. Youve already started this process of elimination which means you have the courage to take the next step towards a dream career. You just need to find and tap into that courage. Think.Inspire.Change.Grow.

Intensity of Attorney FAQ - Australia-NT Intensity of Attorney FAQ - Australia-NT General InformationWhat is a Power of Attorney?A Power of Attorney is a report where one individual (the Donor) names someone else (the Attorney) to represent the person in question.

An Enduring Power of Attorney stays substantial regardless of whether the Donor later turns out to be intellectually inept. (Note: the Donor must be equipped at the time the Power of Attorney is made.) In either case, the Power of Attorney becomes invalid when the Donor bites the dust. A Power of Attorney can't be utilized to hand down property upon the passing of the Donor. What are the contrasts among general and explicit Powers of Attorney?A general Power of Attorney is one that gives the Attorney the position to do anything the Donor could do oneself. A particular Power of Attorney is one that gives the Attorney position to represent a specific reason. (For instance: to purchase or sell a specific bit of property.) Will a Power of Attorney despite everything be legitimate after the Donor dies?NO. As a rule, when an individual kicks the bucket, the Executor (additionally called a Personal Representative) delegated in the individual's Last Will and Testament assumes responsibility for the expired individual's property and circulates it as indicated by the directions in the Will. On the off chance that there is no Will (or if the Will is invalid), every locale has intestacy enactment that disseminates the perished individual's property to their family members as indicated by a lot of rules. A court by and large names an Administrator to administer this procedure. Sadly, the perished individual's desires are not considered during the procedure (which can be protracted), since they have not been officially communicated in the best possible way. Will a Power of Attorney permit me to choose somebody to settle on government assistance and clinical choices on my behalf?In the majority of Australia, forces of lawyer don't give somebody the option to settle on choices about your government assistance or clinical treatment. Generally, a clinical intensity of lawyer or expectant mandate is required to manage non-money related issues. The special case to this standard is found in Australian Capital Territory and Queensland. In the Australian Capital Territory you can utilize your Enduring Power of Attorney to name somebody to run your ordinary undertakings (other than property and cash) and agree to clinical treatment and clinical gift while you are debilitated. In Queensland you can utilize your Enduring Power of Attorney to select somebody to settle on close to home and wellbeing choices when your ability is disabled. The DonorWho is the Donor?The Donor is the individual who needs another person to represent the person in question. The Donor must be a grown-up. The Donor must be fit for settling on their own choices at the time the Power of Attorney is executed (marked). What is incapacity?A individual is unequipped for overseeing property if the individual can't comprehend data pertinent to settling on a choice about the administration of property, or if the individual can't value the predictable outcomes of making (or not settling on) a choice about the administration of property. The AttorneyWho is the Attorney?The individual named by the Donor is known as the Attorney. The Attorney is the individual who represents the Donor. Does the Attorney need to be a lawyer?No, there is no requirement for the Attorney to be a legal advisor. (See beneath for Attorney capabilities.) What capabilities does an Attorney need to have?The Attorney must be a fit grown-up. The Attorney can't be an undischarged bankrupt. The Attorney ought not be the proprietor, administrator or representative of a nursing home or expanded consideration office in which the Donor is an occupant. What characteristics should I search for in an Attorney?Your Attorney must be somebody whom you trust totally. Moreover, recollect that your Attorney will have total position to manage your money related and legitimate issues (subject to any impediments or limitations indicated in your Power of Attorney). You ought to guarantee that the individual you pick has satisfactory money related administration aptitudes and adequate opportunity to deal with your issues appropriately. Your Attorney must be accessible when required, have the option to impartially settle on choices and have the option to keep exact budgetary records. What are the duties of my Attorney?Your Attorney has the accompanying obligations: to act to your greatest advantage; to keep exact records of dealings/exchange attempted for your sake; to represent you with the most extreme great confidence and to keep away from circumstances where there is an irreconcilable situation; and to keep your property and cash separate from their own. Is it alright to delegate a relative as Attorney?Yes, individuals regularly choose family members as Attorneys. Can my Attorney likewise be a recipient in my will?Yes. What are Joint or Joint Several Attorneys?Sometimes a Donor will need to name two Attorneys. All things considered the Donor must choose whether the Attorneys will be 'joint' Attorneys or 'joint and a few' Attorneys. Joint Attorneys must act together. The two of them must concur before any move can be made, and the two of them must make a similar move simultaneously. On the off chance that one is missing, no move can be made. Joint and a few Attorneys can act together or separately. It is possible that one can make a move without talking with the other. On the off chance that one is missing, the other can in any case demonstration. Spot and TimeWhat is Jurisdiction?A purview is a spot that has its own laws. It is a region with limits, for example, a state or an area. For instance, California is a ward in the United States, Ontario is a locale in Canada, Scotland is a purview in the United Kingdom and Queensland is a locale in Australia. What is the Governing Law?A Power of Attorney is represented by the law of the purview where the activities of the Attorney will be performed. Ordinarily, this is the spot where the property of the Donor is found. In this way, it's anything but a smart thought to name an Attorney who lives in an alternate ward, except if the property or resources you need the Attorney to manage are likewise in the diverse purview. On the off chance that you envision that your Attorney will be acting in more than one ward, you ought to likely make separate Powers of Attorney for every locale. Models: In the event that your financial balances and other property are situated in the purview where you live, you will need to name an Attorney who lives in a similar locale. In the event that you live in one ward yet have a financial balance or other property somewhere else, and you need an Attorney to manage that property, you will need to pick where the property is situated as the overseeing law, and delegate an Attorney who is situated in (or is eager to make a trip to) a similar purview as the property. When does a Power of Attorney start?If a General Power of Attorney identifies with land, at that point the Power of Attorney should be enlisted and will subsequently begin the enrollment date. In the event that a General Power of Attorney doesn't need to be enrolled, it will begin promptly upon execution. Every single Enduring Power of Attorney must be enlisted and will hence begin the enrollment date. How/when does a Power of Attorney end?An common Power of Attorney closes consequently when the Donor turns out to be intellectually debilitated or kicks the bucket. An Enduring Power of Attorney closes naturally when the Donor bites the dust. For whatever length of time that you are intellectually able, you may deny your Power of Attorney whenever by advising your Attorney (recorded as a hard copy) that the Power is renounced and wrecking the first Power of Attorney. Something else, a Power of Attorney proceeds essentially inconclusively, except if the report determines an end date. Would i be able to deny my Power of Attorney after I have become incompetent?A individual who is inept can't repudiate an Enduring Power of Attorney. In any case, a conventional Power of Attorney is consequently disavowed when the Donor is seen as inept. How would I repudiate my Power of Attorney?You can deny, or drop, a Power of Attorney by giving your Attorney a composed notification saying that their capacity has finished. Additionally, you may make another Power of Attorney that expresses your past Power of Attorney is currently denied (yet you should even now advise the past Attorney of the renouncement). Outsiders (e.g., individuals or associations that have been managing the Attorney) should likewise be advised. Moreover, if your Power of Attorney is enlisted you should likewise enlist the denial. It would be ideal if you note that on the off chance that you neglect to educate your lawyer regarding the repudiation, your Attorney can legitimately keep on settling on choices for your benefit. PowersShould I put limitations on my Attorney?When you give a general Power of Attorney, you give your Attorney the position to do anything you could do yourself, with a couple of exemptions -, for example, territories where you have aptitudes that your lawyer doesn't (for example in the event that you are a dental specialist, you can't approve your Attorney to rehearse dentistry for your sake). Be that as it may, there might be a few things you would incline toward your Attorney didn't do. For instance, you might need to necessitate that your Attorney get earlier endorsement from you before marking checks for enormous sums for you. Should my Attorney be permitted to by and by advantage from dealing with my assets?If
