Security: things that are done to protect human, things .. from danger or bad situations Safety: when someone or something is safe from danger or harm. National security profects your country from enemy, therefore, your country has safety.

Safe means that the condition is protected. Car safety = safety belt, airbar, etc. Secure means only people allowed by the owner are able to access it. Car security = lock, alarm, gps tracking, etc. Secure means it cannot be stolen....

[…continued from the main page]

All project proposals should explain all the expected results that will be achieved by the project. Many proposal formats seek extensive information on results just to ensure that the set objectives are successfully achieved. However, some proposal formats request both outputs and outcomes separately.

Project results can be divided into three types:

– Outputs
– Outcomes
– Impact

Outputs are those results which are achieved immediately after implementing an activity. For example, if we are organizing a workshop on human rights, participants who attended it have now got a clear understanding on human rights issues. So, this is an output the project has achieved and it is achieved right after the conclusion of the workshop.

Outcomes can be considered as mid-term results. They are not seen immediately after the end of the project activity. But after some time, when we see some change at the ground level...

Someone and somebody are both pronouns that are used to refer a person who is not known or specified. In most contexts, they are interchangeable.

The only difference that most native speakers can agree upon is that someone is more formal than somebody (just as anyone is more formal than anybody, and everyone is more formal than everybody). This means that in a sentence like the one below, used in a legal context, someone is a much more likely choice than somebody.

The bank requires that the deed be signed by someone authorized by the courts.

It’s also interesting to note that someone is used more frequently than somebody, according to the data that we have on language use.

I hope this helps....

Diachronic linguistics is the same thing as historical linguistics. Diachronic linguistics is the study of the changes in language over time. Synchronic linguistics is the study of the linguistic elements and usage of a language at a particular moment. Diachronic analysis can be the general evolution of all languages or the evolution of a particular language or dialect.

Think of a sychronic analysis as a single frame in a roll of film. The diachronic analysis would be the study of all the frames.

In Course in General Linguistics, Ferdinand de Saussure discusses how an individual can contribute changes in a language but without the acknowledgment of this change by others in his/her social community, no change will have lasting value. In other words, he says "by himself the individual is incapable of fixing a single value."

Saussure favored the synchronic approach. Each approach has its benefits. The diachronic approach might focus more on the interplay of...

I have ubuntu 12.04 running in a virtual machine on virtual box. Its existence is mainly as a 'toy' to play about with Ubuntu, so for this reason I wanted the GUI (is that what 'Dash' is in ubuntu 12.04? Anyway...)

One thing I am currently using this machine for is a LAMP server. I use 'gedit' to edit my files, but because I haven't correctly set permissions yet I just open it with sudo in terminal.

Just now, to try to simplify this process I created a shell script on the desktop with a very simple job - sudo gedit

I can't help thinking there must be an even more obvious way to open gedit as root from the GUI than this. So is there?

Edit: I just 'improved' my script by replacing sudo with gksudo. Now I don't have to have a terminal window open while gedit is open. So I guess this is quite convenient for now :) It would be good, for the sake of knowledge, to know if this is anything close to how the more seasoned ubuntu users would do this type of...

After a long discussion on #ubuntu-devel I now understand the thinking.

gksu can be installed on 13.04 with sudo apt-get install gksu and it will work.

If you decided to install gksu and are using the 64-bit version you'll need to run gksu-properties once to set the authentication to sudo. There is no need to do this on 32-bit as it's set to sudo by default.

However gksu is not recommended any more and it may be removed entirely from future issues of Ubuntu. In general the development team would prefer us not to use GUI applications as root but to use sudo and the command line instead.

In the long term pkexec is preferred however it's not very easy to use at the moment.

pkexec allows an authorized user to execute PROGRAM as another user. If username is not specified, then the program will be executed as the administrative super user, root.

see the man page man pkexec for more information.

In the mean time you can open a...
