    • d3.js,
    • This is where R offers incredible help.
    • R Programming offers a satisfactory set of inbuilt function and libraries (such as ggplot2, leaflet, lattice) to build visualizations and present data. In this article,
    • Histogram is basically a plot that breaks the data into bins (or breaks) and shows frequency distribution of these bins.  You can change the breaks also and see the effect it has data visualization in terms of understandability.
    • King replied: “Here’s the thing: There are books and there are books.” He explained that he writes for three or four hours each day and tries to produce a half dozen “fairly clean” pages in that time. “So if the manuscript is, say, 360 pages long, that’s basically two months’ work – but that’s assuming it goes well. “
    • On the topic of gun control, King noted, “as long as anybody who’s got only two wheels on the road can walk into a store and buy a … killing machine like an AR-15 or something, this is just going to go on. It’s really up to us [to stop it] … the sad thing about this is that we remember the killers long after their victims are forgotten, and that’s one of the things that makes this self-perpetuating act.
    • That is, according to Sony Pictures chariman Tom Rothman, who in an in-depth interview with The Hollywood Reporter indicated that Sony isn’t just very happy with their Marvel relationship now, but they see it as an opportunity to build a whole new universe out of Spider-Man projects, while still being part of Marvel’s ludicrously successful film pantheon:
    • Sony has the ultimate authority. But we have deferred the creative lead to Marvel, because they know what they’re doing. We start shooting the new Spider-Man in Atlanta [in mid-June].
    • I don’t want to trim costs. I want to make money.
    • But it’s a great investment. Knowing that Marvel has such a clear, creative vision, I sleep very well at night.
    • According to EW, “The filmmakers didn’t want to explain exactly what’s happening here, but they confirm: yes, that’s a Stormtrooper doll, a galactic version of a toy soldier. And it will have special significance in the story.”
    • By going behind his back, Sansa prevented Jon from having the chance to nobly turn down Littlefinger’s help, and that’s absolutely what saved his life and the life of his men.
    • At the moment he’s got the biggest army in the North, and the lord of Winterfell owes him big. That’s the result he wanted, and it was the result he was going to make happen one way or another.
    • In fact, I think it’s not insane to speculate that Littlefinger possibly gave Rickon to the Umbers to give to Ramsay, all to force Jon into attacking Winterfell.
    • The person who has most benefitted from the battle for Winterfell is Littlefinger—and nine times out of 10 if he’s the one benefitting from a situation, he’s probably the one who set it up, too.
    • It wasn’t like that when he started.” Another example, in a written statement Starr said he didn’t know of the allegations of violence until the fall of 2015 and then “immediately launched an internal investigation before recommending to the Board an independent external investigation.” This is contradicted with the timeline of Tevin Elliott being convicted January 23, 2014 of sexual assault.
    • Starr became vindictive towards media members and employees in his final years as well. Starr would “fly off the handle” if anyone called him Kenneth Starr, as it reminded him of the Clinton Scandal he is widely known for in America’s history.
    • In all fairness, I thought Starr might have something wrong in the head after the last two interviews he gave.
    • Asked if Strong has complete support from the administration, the source said, “I think he does … as long as there is progress shown. That can be measured by the number of wins and not getting TCU’d.”
    • No blowouts, in other words. No 30-0 deficits at the end of the first quarter and eventual 50-7 TCU losses. No 24-0 whitewashes by feeble Iowa State. No more 38-3 Notre Dames.
    • The epicenter of the country’s immigration wave is London—The Migration Observatory finds foreign-born residents make up 39 percent of the population in inner London and 33 percent in its outer boroughs (for context, that’s similar to New York City, which is 37 percent foreign born).
    • One way to think about it is to compare the U.K. and United States. In 2014, immigrants made up 13.3 percent of the U.S. population, up from 7.9 percent in 1990,
    • The component with the largest impact on petitioner’s chances of admission was not the school’s consideration of race under its holistic-review process but the Top Ten Percent Plan. Because petitioner did not challenge the percentage part of the plan, the record is devoid of evidence of its impact on diversity.
      • Create an action that updates fields on an object

      • Add an action to an object’s page layout
    • Object-specific actions let users quickly  create or update records, log calls, send emails, and more, in the context of a  particular object.
    • For example, you add an object-specific  action on the Account object that creates contacts. If a user creates a contact  with that action on the detail page for the Acme account, that new contact is  automatically associated with Acme.
    • Object-specific actions create records that are automatically associated with  related records.
    • Object-specific update actions make it easy  for users to edit records. You can define the fields that are available for  update.
    • Object-specific Log a Call actions let users  enter notes about calls, meetings, or other interactions that are related to a  specific record.
    • Object-specific custom actions are Visualforce pages or canvas apps that  let users interact with or create records that have a relationship to an object  record.The Visualforce page for an object-specific  custom action must include the standard controller for the relevant object. For  example, use the standard contact controller to create a custom action that lets  users import a contact’s Twitter profile and add that information to a contact  record.
    • Send email actions, available only on  cases, give users access to a simplified version of the Case Feed Email  action on Salesforce1.
    • Choose from standard actions, such  as create and update actions, or create actions based on your company’s  needs.
    • For example, an administrator at a food service company could  create an “Emergency Order” action that allows their delivery drivers to  immediately order extra or missing food items using their mobile phone while still at a  customer site. Creating actions for Salesforce1 can drive adoption in your  organization and make you a hero to your users!
    • Create actions and add them to the Chatter publisher on the home page, on the  Chatter tab, in Chatter groups, and on record detail  pages. In Salesforce Classic, actions appear in the  Chatter publisher. In Lightning Experience, actions  appear in different areas of the user interface, depending on the action’s type. In Salesforce1, actions appear in the action bar,  its associated action menu, and as list-item actions.
    • After creating quick actions, you can customize them. Quick actions have their own action  layouts, which let you specify which fields are included in the action, and in which order.
      • Follow these steps when setting up actions for Salesforce1.


        1. Create a global or object-specific action.

        3. Customize the action’s layout, choosing the fields users see when they use it.

        5. If you created an object-specific action, add it to one or more of that object’s page  layouts. If you created a global action, add it to a global publisher layout.
    • Global create actions enable  users to create object records, but the new record has no relationship with other  records.
    • Users sometimes want a more detailed way to add new Accounts. In order to make entry of new Account data more flexible, add a new global quick action with a new layout and new default values.
    • The first four fields on your compact layout populate the record highlights section at the top  of each record view in Salesforce1. The record  highlights section in Lightning Experience uses the  first five fields on the compact layout.
    • Create a compact layout for the Contact object called ‘Phone and Email’.
    • Smart Search Items is required for users to get search results in the Salesforce1 downloadable app for Android. Users  of the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS and  the Salesforce1 mobile browser app are able to  search for records if this option is omitted from the navigation menu.
    • When organizing the menu  items, put the items that users will use most at the top. The Smart Search Items element  can expand into a set of eight or more menu items and it might end up pushing other  elements below the scroll point if you put it near the top of the menu. Anything you put  below the Smart Search Items element appears in the Apps section of the navigation  menu.
    • The Salesforce1 navigation menu can contain all of the following items except:
    • When the Smart Search Items menu item is added to the navigation menu, what can users do?
    • How do you customize the Salesforce1 navigation menu for your mobile users?
    • owever, as an administrator, you can significantly improve your mobile users’ experience with  Salesforce1 by taking the time to configure a few organization settings and customize how the  data in your organization is displayed in a mobile environment.
      • Your users can get Salesforce1 in different ways:


        • As a downloadable app from the App Store and Google Play™.

        • As a mobile browser app that runs in supported mobile browsers. This option doesn’t  require anything to be installed.
    • Users can get Salesforce1 in all of the following ways except:
    • The Salesforce1 user interface includes all of these key elements except:
    • Each of these transitions caused some pain, but each of them also made sense even at the time, given that the new replacements for the outgoing technology had already arrived or were on the horizon. The proposed replacements for the headphone jack—at least, the ones being proposed by the rumor mill at this point in time—have the distinction of both being less widespread than the headphone jack and not obviously better than the headphone jack.
    • Consider either Lightning or USB Type-C headphones, ignoring for a minute the fact that we may soon be entering a world in which there are two competing standards for headphone jacks where one perfectly adequate universal standard has existed for decades.
    • These headphones would only work with devices with certain ports, and they would either need their own digital-to-analog converter (DAC) or the standards would need to allow the headphones to use the phones’ internal DAC (audio over USB Type-C can theoretically do this, audio over Lightning can’t).
    • I’m still running into 30 pin connectors in cars and in hotels, and that was one port that one company used in three product lines for a total of eight years
    • Runners on a low-carb (and therefore high-fat) diet had significantly faster finish times—22 hours, 53 minutes versus 28 hours, 52 minutes—than those on a more traditional carbohydrate diet.
    • By comparison, 100 percent of the self-identified high-carb runners finished their 100-mile races. (See table below for more details.) Subjects in the two groups had roughly the same best times in previous 50-mile races, and trained about the same—50 to 55 miles a week.
      • Define an approval process, and list its key components.

      • Describe the types of business processes that can be automated  using approval processes.

        • Set up an approval process to automatically manage when an  account changes from a prospect to a new customer.






      • when account has value “prospect” in “type” fieldlaunch approval processrules for executionType = prospectemployees > 500Type will change to pendingType will lockUpon approvalType will become customerType will unlockUpon No Approvaltype returns to prospecttype is unlocked
    • Our approval process is based on opportunity records, which we  already have in our org. However, we need to create some simple  custom fields to use in our approval process. We create one custom  field to add a discount percent. This field initiates the approval  process. We create another custom field to record the status of the  opportunity depending on whether the opportunity is approved or  rejected.
    • Click Create New Approval Process and choose  Use Jump Start Wizard from the drop-down  button. The Jump Start Wizard helps you create a  simple approval process and automatically chooses  some default options for you.
    • For the name, enter “Approve Opportunity Discount” and  for the unique name, enter  “Approve_Opportunity_Discount”.
    • dd final approval actions.
    • In the “Final Approval Actions” area, click  Add New | Field Update.
    • Add final rejection actions.
    • Create an approval process that validates when a Prospect Account becomes a Customer.
    • You’ve been given a requirement to keep Contact addresses in sync with the Account they belong to. Use Process Builder to create a new process that updates all child Contact addresses when the address of the Account record is updated. This process:
