Marginal costing is variable costing only. No fixed cost is considered for decision making. It's cost of extra production, best mix, key factors and capacity availability formula.

1) sales_variablecost = contribution_fixedcost = profit

(2) profit volume ratio = contribution / sales*100

(3) breakeven sales = fixed cost / pv ratio

(4) margin of safety = acutal sales _ break even sales sales

(5) desired sales = desired profit /pv ratio

How to Judge whether you can be a sound designer or not. :)

Hello Students, hope you are doing well!

As this is my first lesson on Urban Pro, so I thought to write something that can benefit you at a beginner level :)

I'm a Multimedia Professional, a Faculty in the same field as well, doing well in my profession. To share the knowledge I have is my hobby since my early childhood, and I'll continue it until my last breath! Professional details about me, you'll get in my profile.

Now let’s begin the class.

Before getting your first step in the field, actually in any area, you should know at least basics about that particular field. In general, if I say, so, first of all, you should know the what and how of the field, the scope, and most importantly, your interest...is it that you can do efficiently, or something else is better for you...???

For Multimedia & Designing field, some people might say that you should be good at computers, or you should be good at drawing, but believe me, the best student of mine, is also one who's very poor at drawing. Seriously, but as I said, she's my best student, I meant it! She's a good designer, as well as from commerce field too! I mean, there is no bar on the student that you should be from arts, science, commerce or any particular subject in high school or intermediate. Anybody can join the field without any pre-requisite degree.

It may sound shocking for some people, but all you need to be a good designer is the creativity. The imagination power. How much you can think of something, in how many ways you can interpret a design. That’s what matters. Everyone has their unique potential, and calibre.

Now let's interpret some rumours & myths that confuse our lovely & sweet students :)

To join a design field, you need to have:

Good Computer Knowledge: No! Every Institution teaches student basics of computers before starting the multimedia software. So you will get this thing when you join.

Fluent Drawing Skills: Not Mandatory, although a plus point! If the child has enthusiasm and passion for creating new things and exciting designs, drawing skills are not necessary. You will not use pencil and paper to figure out a design. Instead, computer graphics will be created by you. All you need is to have an understanding point of view.

Contacts in Industry: Not at all! :D If you'll become a good designer, you will create connections yourself. It is just a magical spell to keep the innocent students out of the field as the above rumours are taken as true by our elders.

Creativity and Passion: Must and the only requirement, to be a successful designer. All you need is this, and rest depends upon your command over software tools, which will be generated by practice.

 

So these were some negative points that you may come across, but make the final decision yours! Because, "If you do a thing that you don't want to, you can't do it at your best. However, if you do what you want, then no one can do it better than you!"

 

You will come across many Bhaiyas, Didis, Govt. job wale uncles and many more people around you who have achieved excellent heights in career but they will be negative about this field like, " it's about your luck. Kuch hona Nii h isme, agr luck lag gya kahin se tabhi success possible hai etc. " hahaha...!

But all these are the influence of above rumours on them! Even I, myself have changed minds of my many relatives and neighbours.

One more thing that I think is necessary is that people say that students who are weak in the study and so, are choosing design and animation field. That's what makes me lose temper and I want to strike them lol..!! But it's not true at all, its hurting :c Animation and design are also a field of study. These are a totally practical field that requires more attention and hard work than the so-called study like B.Tech, BCA, and all.... I'm not criticising any course or field, but just saying that we, multimedians also study, and keep exploring every day, because there is a new challenge, a new design, a new update coming in the market every day! Even I've always been a meritorious student of my times, since my early childhood to my latest education. So I completely deny this.

Finally, guys and girls, I'll suggest you join the field as it has a very fast, wide and exciting scope in industry, and also you can get different jobs like that of a graphic artist, animator, 3d modeller, video editor and many more by doing just one multimedia program. Even I started my career one year before completing my diploma course :)

All you need is to read this lesson thoroughly, explore multimedia yourself and then question yourself that

"Do you have that power which can make you the Designer of the Century...??"

When you get the answer, you can come to me for further guidance or training :)

Well, that's all for today's lesson, I hope that You didn't get bored :D :D and understood it well...!!

So Bye everyone, and take very good care of yourself,

Signing out for now, this is

Shubham Srivastava,

Multimedia Professional & Faculty, now Mentor as well :D :D

In this tutorial, you will learn an easy method to draw a baseball cap in 3/4 view angle. This evergreen accessory will help you add some sports spirit to your fashion sketches especially if you are designing a casual or athletic wear collection. So grab your pencils and let’s start!

Step 1: Guidelines

Start by drawing your model first. Draw a 3/4 view angle face and leave enough space in front of the model and above her head. Draw 3 vertical guidelines. 2 of them should be framing the head, and the third one is right before the ear.

Step 2: Where the hat base lays

To mark where the cap touches the face let’s draw a curved line.  The curve starts slightly above model’s ear and ends at the head outline – right where the hairline and the forehead meet. Until you reach the vertical ear line bend the curve downwards. Then go gently up and try to follow the hairline. The line should look simple and graceful.

Step 3: Draw the crown

Next step is to draw a semicircle around the model’s head. Pay attention that the cap outline does not stand directly over the hair. There is some space above the hair. Add the top button of the baseball cap – this is where all the pattern segments join. Use the vertical ear line as a guide to place it properly.

Step 4: Find the size of the visor

Erase all the unnecessary line of the hair. Now draw two dots at the cap base. The first one is on the vertical ear line. The second one is at the vertical forehead line. The third dot is interesting – it is positioned outside of the model. The distance between 2nd and 3rd dot equals half the distance between 1st and 2nd.

Make sure that the 2nd and the 3rd dots are laying on the same horizontal line.

Step 5: Guidelines for the peak

This is the really tricky part. You will draw a laying down “8” connecting the three dots from the previous step. Notice the difference in the sizes of its parts.

Step 6: Outline the peak

Follow the “8” shape to draw the cap peak. Pay attention to the place where it connects to the base – there should be a short straight line there.

Notice that the left side of the brim is longer than the right side.

Step 7: Draw the panels

Draw the panels of the cap and top stitches right next to them. Around the peak, there is also the topstitching. At the top of the hat, you can also add a small eyelet if you wish to make it look even more realistic.

Step 8: Add a logo

Time for the fun part – design your logo and put it on the front of the crown. You can erase the whole front panel to provide a better canvas for the logo or applique the logo over it. Make sure the inside of the brim is in shadow.

Hopefully, this tutorial really helped you understand how easy and fun drawing a baseball is and inspired you to create more casual outfits. You can combine with cool sporty clothes in denim fabric, sunglasses and add some sneakers to finish the looks in your collection.

Ivanka Trump launches 'Complicit' a word of the year:

Dictionary.com is a web portal dedicated to English language. Every day they come up with a word of the day. This website closely work with the development of English language and current developments in writing in press, periodicals, books and other material.

Yesterday they have declared 'complicit' as its word of the year.

Complicit: The particular word is used by Ivanka Trump for the fragrance she launched. Scarlett Johansson in a glittery gold dress launched it. The other developments like, Russian election influence, the ever-widening sexual harassment scandal, mass shootings and the opioid epidemic increased the use of the word "complicit”. Dictionary.com then chosen it the word of the year for 2017.

Lexicographer Jane Solomon told revels the meaning, "This year a conversation that keeps on surfacing is what exactly it means to be complicit," she further added, “Complicit has sprung up in conversations about those who speak out against powerful figures in institutions, and those who stay silent."

March 12. "Saturday Night Live" launched the sketch starring Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump in a glittery gold dress peddling a fragrance called "Complicit" as it reveals "She's beautiful, she's powerful, she's complicit."

I remember a quote of David Crystal, “A feature of English that makes it different compared with all other languages is its global spread” I remember he used it in the preface of his book, ‘‘Stories of English’ David Crystal. He goes further and explains how English is spread across the globe and how it’s form, syntax is different from each other. Sir David Crystal is lexicographer of Cambridge encyclopedia and is the only senior most authority alive today.

I wonder if other languages also practice the same thing, they will get enriched and will remain in use for more years. Else the touch screen reality and ever changing diction will make any established language irrelevant within 10 years.

Surprisingly on April 5, Ivanka, Solomon said. It was the day after she appeared on "CBS This Morning" and told Gayle King, among other things: "I don't know what it means to be complicit."

The other development on Oct. 24, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake harshly criticizing President Donald Trump and urging other members of the party not to stand silently with the president. He used 'complicit' word as follow.

"I have children and grandchildren to answer to, and so, Mr. President, I will not be complicit," Flake said.

I soon will be writing on the words which have become absolute in 2017. As this year has been a year of heavy political turmoil and political upheaval like never before. This year also is the year when many writers surfaced their talent in writing in revival style. The movies, music, dance, drama, public relations, advertising and political arena went on revivalism raga.

As fashion changes every season and so do the language. Let us get updated with in vogue new terminologies.

Out-Of-Use Words In 2017

As we are approaching the fag-end of the year 2017, it is time to take a look back at language.

Every year when we read news paper new words are added and some old words are removed from use.

The devout news paper readers observe it with relish. They hone their language with razor sharp usage of words. They are the people who win the hearts during public speaking.

We can call them the lost words in English during year 2017

1. Ambodexter, n: One who takes bribes from both sides

2. Betrump, v: To deceive, cheat; to elude: This particular word is used this year by only The Asian Age in India and Spectator in west. This is used for the news from US and Latin US.

3. Coney-catch, v: To swindle, cheat, deceive

4. Hugger-mugger, n, adj, and adv: Concealment, secrecy; clandestinely

5. Nickum, n: A cheating or dishonest person

6. Quacksalver, n: A person who dishonestly claims knowledge of medicine

7. Rouker, n: A person who whispers or spreads rumors, this particular word is used this year the most acclaimed daily The Asian Age and spectator in west.

8. Man-millinery, adj: Suggestive of male vanity or pomposity

9. Parget, v: To daub the face or body with powder or paint

10. Snout-fair, adj: Fair-faced, comely, handsome

11. Slug-a-bed, n: One who lies long in bed through laziness

12. Losenger, n: A false flatterer, a lying rascal, a deceiver

13. Momist, n: A person who habitually finds fault; a harsh critic,

14. Peacockize, v: To pose or strut ostentatiously

15. Percher, n: An ambitious or self-assertive person

16. Rouzy-bouzy, adj: Boisterously drunk

17. Ruff, v: To swagger, bluster, domineer.

18. Sillytonian, n: A silly or gullible person

19. Wlonk, adj + n: Proud, haughty; splendid

20. Fumish, adj: Hot-tempered, irascible, passionate

21. Awhape, v: To amaze, stupefy with fear

22. Hugge, v: To shake with fear or with cold

23. Merry-go-sorry, n: A mixture of joy and sorrow

24. Stomaching, adj: Given to cherish anger or resentment

25. Swerk, v: To become dark or gloomy

26. Teen, v: To vex, irritate, annoy, anger

27. Tremblable, adj: Causing dread or horror

28. Wasteheart, int: Used to express grief, pity, regret

29. Dowsabel, n: Sweetheart, ‘lady-love’

30. Ear-rent, n: Figurative cost of listening to trivial talk

Unfamiliar they may be now but at least one could be returning to modern use as part of a campaign to highlight how long-lost words are still relevant today.

These 30 words are selected by language experts at the University of York as being ripe for revival. Senior Lecturer Dominic Watt and his research team spent three months scouring historic texts and etymological dictionaries to create the list.

They are grouped into themes which Dr Watt in Forensic Speech Science at the University of York, he undertakes forensic phonetic casework on a part-time basis.  Dr Watt co-designed and delivers the MSc in Forensic Speech Science at York, the only course of its kind.  He has degrees in linguistics and phonetics from the Universities of Edinburgh and Newcastle, and has held teaching and research positions in the speech sciences at institutions throughout the UK and in Germany.

I personally admire Dr Watt as a Professor of Mass Communication. I appreciate this passion and study in the language domain. I shoulder his view on its importance in modern life: post-truth (deception), appearance, personality, behavior, and emotions.
