Why Socialism fails??


An economics teacher at a local school made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Gillard/Brown socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 

The teacher then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on the Gillard/Brown plan". All grades will 
be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. 

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. 

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. 

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. 

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the teacher told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, and gives to those who do nothing, no-one will try

Or want to succeed. 

It could NOT be any simpler than that. 

Remember, there IS a test coming up.--->> The next election.


These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

1. You can not legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.

How to Install Hadoop (2.7.3) on Ubuntu (16.04 LTS)

As I am planning to learn Hadoop, I wanted to install Hadoop (2.7.3) on my Ubuntu (16.04 LTS) and I followed the steps mentioned in the documentation on the Apache Hadoop website. I encountered few problems which are mentioned below, spent some time finding solution to them.

Below are the steps I followed and the description of the error is at the end of this post and also I have mentioned what I missed and what caused these errors.


Step 1. Download Hadoop installation file. For Hadoop 2.7.3 version I used the following link 

http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/hadoop/common/hadoop-2.7.3/hadoop-2.7.3-src.tar.gzStep 2. (Assuming you have downloaded the file into /home/<username>/Downloads folder

$ tar zxf hadoop-2.7.3-src.tar.gz
This will extract the files into a folder  "hadoop-2.7.3" .

Step 3. I moved the file to /home/<username> folder (many suggest to move it into /usr/local but I prefer to keep it here, may be once I learn more about linux I might get into tha…

Javascript KeyCode Reference table for Event Handling

The post explains Keyboard event handling using javascript.Javascript events are used to capture user keystrokes. Below is a table of key codes for the keys on a multimedia keyboard. If this table is inconsistent with your own findings, please let me know.

Java Script Code to Find Key code

<script language="JavaScript">
document.onkeydown = checkKeycode
function checkKeycode(e) {
var keycode;
if (window.event) keycode = window.event.keyCode;
else if (e) keycode = e.which;
alert("keycode: " + keycode);
}
</script>

Remove OpenJDK completely by this command:
sudo apt-get purge openjdk-\*Download the Oracle Java JDKhere.
Note: download appropriate file, for example if your system is x64 Ubuntu (i.e, Debian) the download file is named like this: jdk-8u51-linux-x64.tar.gz
To find which version is your OS, check hereCreate a folder named java in /usr/local/by this command:
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/javaCopy the Downloaded file in the directory /usr/local/java. To do this, cd into directory where downloaded file is located and use this command for copying that file to /usr/local/java/:
sudo cp -r jdk-8u51-linux-x64.tar.gz /usr/local/java/CD into /usr/local/java/ directory and extract that copied file by using this command:
sudo tar xvzf jdk-8u51-linux-x64.tar.gzAfter extraction you must see a folder named jdk1.8.0_51.Update PATH file by opening /etc/profile file by the command sudo nano /etc/profile and past…
