Gravity-Defying Balanced Rock Tower

Not matter how many times I saw Michael Grab‘s balancing rock work, I always be amazed. The Colorado-based artist is adept at finding an intrinsic balance within his natural supplies, perceiving a harmony despite the chaotic conditions that surround each precarious structure. To build something like that, Grab needs to combine physical methodology with equally vital mental components in order to tune into himself and his environment, and find that essential place of stillness. Just like how it sounds, it is pretty complicated. But if you have an astonishing sense of balance, a lot of patience, practice and steady hands, it is still possible. So take some time to do some balancing work, you don’t need to be as expert as Grab. But the whole procss of balancing is acutally therapeutic and meditative.

AS3: When and Why use “final” attribute

To prevent a class from being extended or a method from being overridden, we precede that class or method definition with the final attribute.

How it works?
To Final a class:
final public class A{

}

To Final a method:
public class A{
final public function A{

}

}

The final attribute is used for two reasons in ActionScript:

  • In some situations, final method execute faster than non-final methods. If you are looking to improve your application’s performance in every possible way, try making its method final.
  • Methods that are final help hide a class’s internal detail. Making a class or a method final prevents other programmers from extending the class or overriding the method for the purpose of examining the class’s internal structure. Such prevention is considered one of the ways to safeguard an application from being maliciously exploited.
