Earn Your Playing Time

Originally posted on: It is aggravating being a coach and a parent watching other parents complain that their child doesn’t get their fair share of playing time.  I could have done this with my own son this season, but instead I told him to work harder and he is now a starter.  Those who show effort and willingness to learn will earn their playing time.  We do our children a disservice by expecting someone to give them a role they haven’t put in the work for or don’t have the skill to perform.

Ionic is a framework built on angular-js, targeted at creating mobile applications. However, one component that isn’t part of the standard controls is the master detail layout.

down into each item for more details (the detail view). On small devices (i.e. phones), the control should behave similar to a navigation control, where the user only sees one screen at a time and has the ability to navigate forwards backwards between the master and detail views. On larger devices (i.e. tablets), the control should be a split-screen view so the user sees the master view down the left edge of the screen with the detail view filling the remaining space. When writing a native iOS app, this type of view is part of UISplitViewController. For a great write up on...(Read whole news on source site)
