• Use double integrals to find the area of the region given by R= {(x,y)|1<=x<=3; 2<=y<=3}?

    I have a Calc II mid-term question for an online class and I feel like it is missing something. I know if you have the functions that represent the boundaries, then you can find the area with double integrals, but there are no functions. I have pasted the whole question below so nothing is left out. I can't seem to find this in the chapters covered (7-8 of Calculus: An applied approach v8... although I have v9 from Calc I). Question: Use double integrals to find the area of the region given by R= {(x,y)|1<=x<=3; 2<=y<=3} You don't have to solve it, but rather it is the formulas that I want since that is where I am at a loss.

  • Should I make an incorporation for rental properties and other services?

    I read online that unless you own 4+ properties you don't really need to form an incorporation and that with 4+ then you should so that your personal property is not affected in the event something happens at one of the rentals. Background: I am considering this because my wife and I own 4 properties in California: one we live in near Pasadena, two we rent out in San Bernardino and one we have unoccupied in the SB mountains and may have as a vacation home with possible weekly rentals (a nice geodesic dome). One of the rentals has been occupied since April 2011 (1-year lease) and we dropped her lease by 300 since she said she was going to have to move out due to finances. Renewed at the new price since she took great care of the property and no complaints. The other one we just rented it out on July 1st and her July rent was late (with a bounced check) and she has yet to pay her August rent. I have a feeling that this is going to be a problem tenant. She listed only 2 other adults in the house but we noticed when we stopped by a high-chair and some children's cloths in the dining room that she did not disclose. I am thinking about putting the two rentals under an Inc so that if something goes wrong, the new tenant cannot touch our personal property. We may add the mountain home at a later date. Additional Info: My wife is also does some freelance architectural consulting and I am a software engineer and I would like to work on some applications and sometimes have individuals ask me to do some freelance work for them. Question: 1) Would it be in my best interest to form an Inc for the rentals or would the tenant still have access to my personal property if something were to happen? 2) Does the Inc have to belong to a specific industry like property or can our rentals, my wife's architecture and my software all belong to the same Inc? 3) If they cannot belong to the same Inc., would it be worth while to have 3 separate Incorporations that are fully owned by one parent Incorporations and be protected from the interactions of each other? In other words... Parent Services Inc. owns Architectural Consultants Inc, Property Rental Inc and Software Services Inc.

    I purchased a Glock 17 a few months ago. It came with 3 high-capacity magazines; however, I have since moved to California where the maximum capacity allowed is 10 rounds. I have been looking to see if there is a magazine block so I can convert the hi-caps to CA legal, but have not been able to find anywhere that sells them. I want to keep them since if I get sent to Afghanistan I want to take the Glock and mags with me. Does anybody know if they make magazing blocks for Glock 17 hi-cap mags or know the best site to purchase 10-round mags? BTW: I plan on securing the hi-cap mags if they cannot be converted. I don't want to use them and just put 10 rounds in it. If I end up having to use the gun for self defence, I don't want the police to say that I had an illegal magazine (hippie California laws might require them arrest me and appologize to the assailant)

    Please, I only want input from teachers (current or retired). I am a software developer (web applications) and I working on a personal project to help me learn a new type of programming (windows applications). I have an idea for some software that will help out teachers keep track of all the things they do in a class room. I know that there are several types of programs out there already but this is more-or-less for me to learn windows application development. My idea is to create a program where teachers can keep track of student assignments, scores, grades, syllabus etc. I have designed it to allow a teacher to have several courses that they teach each semester/year (like Geometry and Trig) and then assign a homework/quiz template that is for that type of course. They then, each semester, create classes for them (like 2 classes of Geometry, and 1 class of Trig). Each will have their own assignment lists based on the course template and the teacher can then add students to the class. The teacher can then print out a syllabus that is specific to that class with due dates, requirements, etc. The problem that I am having is that I only have a general idea of what a teacher needs to keep track of and what kind of reports the teacher needs to get. This is solely based on a student's perspective. I want to know what other information teachers need to keep track of, and what kind of reports they would need. I want to make this flexible enough for primary school teachers (elementry, junior high and high school) as well as continued education teachers (college and university). I do not know what kind of information pre-school teachers keep track of, so if you do have education requirements, I would appreciate them too. If you have a specialty like special education or something else, your input would be greatly appreciated. I do not think this will rock the teacher software industry and I have no idea if I can even complete it since I have full-time work, but this is the best idea I have right now for a software application. You can either put you input in here or send me a message. Thank you... and thank you for being teachers, I know you are under appreciated for all the extra work you have to do.

    I was approached by a man at a party stating that he would like me to do some work for a program he had made a year ago. The company is a very small company with only 5 employees. The original program was written in MS Access and after looking at the code it looks like it was done pretty well. They just have some quirks that they want taken care of and some new functionality. The majority will not require DB changes. (the original guy didn't put in filters or first/last/new buttons so they have to scroll through all the records since Jan last year to get to the most recent one they were working on). My question is how much should I charge for the maintenance that I will be doing. I am primarily a Java programmer, but like almost all programmers I've played around with other languages and am semi familiar with MS Access and VB. I have never done freelance, only worked for consultant companies.

    I am writing a program that will (on a schedule) run a query against the database archive of another application to determine the age of the files that have been created by that application. Then email the aging report to specific users. I only want to get the age of files that are still on a separate linux box. I have a method that will give me an ArrayList of all the files within the desired folder and all the sub folders. If I could load the reporting program onto the linux box I would have no problem, but due to firewall issues, I cannot. So I am left with having to remotely access the list of files. My problem is I do not know how to remotely access the linux box and its folder structure within Java. I do not want to have to write and install a listener that is an open thread. I have though of an ssh library, but can't find a reliable, active source for a ssh jar. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Her visa expired and INS said they would not renew it and told her that she has until Oct to leave the country or she will be deported. We planned to move up our wedding to before the deportation to try and keep her here. Our goal is not for her to get her citizenship, but for her to complete her Masters Degree here in the US and then we will both be moving to Mexico (where I get to go through my whole green-card status there). I will be getting our marriage license soon, but what other paperwork would I need to stop the deportation status for her? She had a immigration lawyer, but he was useless and had her doing the wrong things for her renewal (hence it being denied).
