How Should You Price Your Home?

Hoping a buyer will overpay for your home isn’t a strategy, it’s a wish. It’s also self defeating.

As a seller, you naturally want to get top dollar. Chances also are good that you have a deep emotional attachment to your home. Combined, those factors often lead sellers to insist on a high price. But testing the waters can actually hurt a home’s value in the long run.

Here’s why: New listings get an average of 80 page views on Redfin.com the day they hit the market. Houses with price drops get only 47 views.

First impressions matter. If your home is overpriced when people first see it, chances are good they won’t look again. We estimate a house listed for sale gets three-and-a-half times more web traffic in the first seven days than it does a month later. After the first three days, web traffic to existing listings slows more than 65 percent. In three weeks, it’s down 85 percent.

In short, your home’s debut is its best chance to shine. An overpriced property is more likely be ignored. In this market, don’t expect a rush of lowball offers. People won’t assume you’re willing to negotiate.

By the time you lower the price, your home will have the taint of being a languisher. Fair or not, a home fresh on the market at $399,000 looks different than one reduced from $425,000 to $399,000.

“Even if it’s objectively a good home, if it’s been on the market for a while, many buyers will wonder if there’s something wrong with it. Once that stigma is there, it is going to be hard for a seller to get full asking price,” said Redfin real estate agent Steven Centrella. “If there’s already a price cut, savvy buyers start smelling blood in the water. It’s not a good situation for sellers to be in.”

Remember, most buyers will look at your home online the first day it comes to market – make that impression count by pricing right. You’ll get more and better offers that way, and you’ll get them sooner.


We looked at all listings on Redfin.com in our established markets, from Jan. 1, 2015 through Sept. 30, 2015. Only price drops greater or equal to 0.5 percent of the home’s original asking price were considered; multiple price drops of the same home were only counted once, during the first price drop.

Microsoft Interview Question for Software Engineer in Tests about Testing


written test
fucntion prints given 2d array in spiral fashion. give all test cases to test it

void printSpiral( )
{
int A[3][3]={{1,3,4},{2,5,8},{6,7,9}};
int n =3; // array size
int i=0,j=0;
while( i+j < 2*n-1 )
{
if( i > j )
{
while( i>=0 && j {
printf("%d\t",A[i][j]);
i--;
j++;
}



i++;


if(j >= n)
{
i++;
j = n-1;
}
}
else if( i <= j )
{
while( j>=0 && i < n)
{
printf("%d\t",A[i][j]);
j--;
i++;
}


j++ ;


if(i >= n)
{
i = n-1;
j = j+1;
}
}
}
return;
}

Test cases:

Let us say array size A[m][n]
1) m==n
2) m != n
3) m very bigger than n i.e m>> n
4) n very bigger than n i.e n>> m

Struts Interview Questions and Answers



Question: 1
Explain Struts.
Answer:

Struts is open source software used to develop java based web page.

Struts uses Jakarta Packages, Java Servlets, JavaBeans, ResourceBundles, and XML
Struts takes the help of Model View Controller (MVC) architecture. Where Model is referring to business or database, View is referring to the Page Design Code, and Controller is referring to navigational code.



Question: 2
What is Struts Validator Framework?
Answer:

Struts Validator Framework enables us to validate the data of both client side and server side.

When some data validation is not present in the Validator framework, then programmer can generate own validation logic, this User Defined Validation logic can be bind with Validation Framework.
Validation Framework consist of two XML configuration Files:
Validator-Rules.xml file
Validation.xml file




Question: 3
What is the need of Struts?
Answer:

We need Struts in Java because of following reasons:

Helps in creation and maintenance of the application.
Make use of Model View Controller (MVC) architecture. Where Model is referring to business or database, View is referring to the Page Design Code, and Controller is referring to navigational code.
Enables developer to make use of Jakarta Packages, Java Servlets, JavaBeans, ResourceBundles, and XML


Question: 4
What are the classes used in Struts?
Answer:

Struts Framework consists of following classes:

Action Servlets: used to control the response for each incoming request.
Action Class: used to handle the request.
Action Form: it is java bean, used to referred to forms and associated with action mapping
Action Mapping: used for mapping between object and action.
Action Forward: used to forward the result from controller to destination.



Question: 5
How exceptions are handled in Struts application?
Answer:

Exceptions are handled in struts by using any one of the following two ways:

Programmatically handling: In this exception are handled by using try and catch block in program. Using this programmer can define how to handle the situation when exception arises.
Declarative handling: In this exception handling is done by using the XML file. Programmer defines the exception handling logic in the XML file. There are two ways of defining the exception handling logic in the XML file:
Global Action Specific Exception Handler Definition.
Local Action Specific Exception Handler Definition.


Question: 6
Describe Validate() and reset() methods
Answer:

Validate() Method: this method is used to validate the properties after they are explored by the application.

Validate method is Called before FormBean is handed to Action.
This method returns a collection of ActionError.
Syntax of Validate() Method:
public ActionErrors validate(ActionMapping mapping,HttpServletRequest request)

Reset() Method: this method is called by the Struts Framework with each request that uses the defined ActionForm.

Used to reset all the data from the ActionForm
Syntax of Reset() Method:
public void reset() {}

Question: 7
What design patterns are used in Struts?
Answer:

There are following types of design patterns are used in Struts:

Service to Worker
Dispatcher View
Composite View (Struts Tiles)
Front Controller
View Helper
Synchronizer Token

Question: 8
What is the difference between session scope and request scope when saving FormBean?
Answer:

The difference between session scope and request scope when saving FormBean are following:

In Request Scope, values of FormBean are available to current request but in Session Scope, values of FormBean are available throughout the session.


Question: 9
What is the different actions available in Struts?
Answer:

The different kinds of actions in Struts are:

ForwardAction
IncludeAction
DispatchAction
LookupDispatchAction
SwitchAction


Question: 10
What is DispatchAction?
Answer:

The DispatchAction enable the programmer to combine together related function or class.

Using Dispatch Action programmer can combine the user related action into a single UserAction. like add user, delete user and update user
DispatchAction execute the action based on the parameter value it receives from the user.


Question: 11
What is difference between LookupDispatchAction and DispatchAction?
Answer:

The difference between LookupDispatchAction and DispatchAction are given below:

LookupDispatchAction is the subclass of the DispatchAction
Actual method that gets called in LookupDispatchAction whereas DispatchAction dispatches the action based on the parameter value.

Question: 12
What is the use of ForwardAction?
Answer:

The ForwardAction is used when we want to combine Struts with existing application.

Used when we want to transfer the control form JSP to local server.
Used to integrate with struts in order to take benefit of struts functionality, without writing the Servlets again.
Use to forward a request to another resource in your application

Question: 13
What are the various Struts tag libraries?
Answer:

The various Struts tag libraries are:

HTML Tags: used to create the struts input forms and GUI of web page.
Bean Tags: used to access bean and their properties.
Logic Tags: used to perform the logical operation like comparison
Template Tags: used to changes the layout and view.
Nested Tags: used to perform the nested functionality
Tiles Tags: used to manages the tiles of the application

Question: 14
What is the life cycle of ActionForm?
Answer:

The lifecycle of ActionForm is as follows:

Retrieve or Create Form Bean associated with Action
"Store" FormBean in appropriate scope (request or session)
Reset the properties of the FormBean
Populate the properties of the FormBean
Validate the properties of the FormBean
Pass FormBean to Action

Question: 15
What are the loop holes of Struts?
Answer:

The drawbacks of Struts are following:

Absence of backward flow mechanism.
Only one single controller Servlets is used.
Bigger learning curve
Worst documentation
No exception present in this framework
Less transparent
Rigid approach.
With struts 1, embedding application into JSP can’t be prevented.
Non-XML compliance of JSP syntax


Question: 16
How to use forward action to restrict a strut application to MVC?
Answer:

We can use the ForwarAction to restrict the Struts application to Model View Controller by following coding:
Question: 17
What is struts.devMode?
Answer:

The struts.devMode is used to make sure that framework is running in development mode or production mode by setting true or false. struts.devMode is set to false in production phase to reduce impact of performance. By default it is "false". It is used because of the following reasons:

Resource Reloading: Resource bundle reload on every request
Modification: struts.xml can be modified without restarting or redeploying the application
Error Handling: The error occurs in the application will be reported, as oppose to production mode.

Question: 18
What is the difference between empty default namespace and root namespace?
Answer:

The difference between the empty default namespace and root name space are:

When namespace attribute is not defined then it is referred to as Empty Default Namespace whereas when name space attribute is assign with forward slash(/) then it is referred to as Root Name Space.
The root namespace must be matched.

Question: 19
What are action errors?
Answer:

Action error: when user or client submits the incorrect or invalid data in the application, then these errors are known as Action error.

Action errors are generated by the clients.
Action error should be determined as soon as possible.

The impacts of such Action Error are:

Wastage of server time and resources.
Negative impact on code quality.

Brain training may forestall dementia onset for years, new study says

Brain training may forestall dementia onset for years, new study says


If you’re intent on keeping dementia at bay, new research suggests you’ll need more than crossword puzzles, aerobic exercise and an active social life. In a study released Sunday, researchers found that older adults who did exercises to shore up the speed at which they processed visual information could cut by nearly half their likelihood of cognitive decline or dementia over a 10-year period.

The new clinical trial results, presented Sunday at the Alzheimer’s Assn.’s International Conference in Toronto, establish specialized brain training as a potentially powerful strategy to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease and other afflictions, including normal aging, that sap memory and reduce function.

With 76 million baby boomers reaching the age of maximum vulnerability to Alzheimer’s and with no effective treatments available to alter the disease’s progression, researchers are keen to find ways to prevent or delay the onset of the memory-robbing disease. The new research suggests that even years after it is administered, an inexpensive intervention without unwanted side effects might forestall dementia symptoms.

The latest results emerged from a 10-year study that compared the effects of three forms of brain training in a group of 2,802 cognitively healthy seniors. The ACTIVE study — short for Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly — was funded by the National Institute on Aging.

A quarter of the participants, who had an average age of 73.4 at the study’s start, got no training at all. The remaining participants were divided into three groups, and over five weeks, each group got 10 hour-long training sessions. One group got a classroom-based course designed to impart strategies aimed at boosting memory; a second got a classroom-based course designed to sharpen participants’ reasoning skills.

Fancy Jewellery Store

A lady walks into a fancy jewellery store.

She browses around, spots a beautiful diamond bracelet and walks over to inspect it.

As she bends over to look more closely she inadvertently breaks wind.

Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her little accident and prays that a sales person doesn't pop up right now.

As she turns around, her worst nightmare materializes in the form of a salesman standing right behind her.

Cool as a cucumber and displaying complete professionalism, the salesman greets the lady with,

"Good day, Madam How may we help you today?"

Very uncomfortably, but hoping that the salesman may not have been there at the time of her little "accident!" she asks,

"Sir, what is the price of this lovely bracelet?" He answers,

"Madam, if you farted just looking at it, you're going to #OOPS# when I tell you the price."

US Family-Based Immigrant Visas - How Long Does it Take?

Family preference immigrant visa cases take additional time because they are in numerically limited visa categories. The length of time varies from case to case and cannot be predicted for individual cases with any accuracy. Some cases are delayed because applicants do not follow instructions carefully. Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the consular officer interviews the applicant.

Progress DBA ADMIN - Relative-path Databases



Relative-path databases are the simplest form of Version 9 databases. They contain most of the
properties associated with pre-Version 9 (single volume) databases, in that they are made up of
a minimum number of files and can be copied with OS commands. A relative-path database
stores all extents associated with the database in the same directory as the control area. The
control area contains relative paths to all the extents. You would use a relative-path database in
the following situations:
• When the database needs to be opened across a network for demonstration purposes
• When the database needs to be copied with OS tools, as when installing a demonstration
database
• When the database is the master database to be associated with a new application
