Polymorphism – C++

Polymorphism is the ability to use an operator or function in different ways. Polymorphism gives different meanings or functions to the operators or functions. Poly, referring to many, signifies the many uses of these operators and functions. A single function usage or an operator functioning in many ways can be called polymorphism. Polymorphism refers to codes, operations or objects that behave differently in different contexts.

Before getting into this section, it is recommended that you have a proper understanding of pointers and class inheritance.

There are two types of polymorphism:

  • Static Polymorphism
  • Dynamic Polymorphism
Static Polymorphism: Any entity in which can exist in different physical forms at the same time. As the different types of parameters are specified in declaration of function so calls can be made at compile time. Number, type, and sequence of parameters declared for each form of the function will decide which function will get called. This is also called as Early Binding.
For example: add(int, int);  and add(float , float);
In the above example if we pass 2 integers then the first function will get called and if we pass 2 float values then the second function will get called.
Dynamic Polymorphism: When any entity change its form depending upon circumstances then that kind of polymorphism is called as Dynamic polymorphism.A function is said to exhibit dynamic polymorphism when it exists in more than one form, and calls to its various forms are resolved dynamically when the program is executed. This is also called as Late Binding.

Short Forms

Social Networking – Properly used

Nowadays when the person completes its graduation then he/she wants a job or internship. Many people or students do work in the summer holidays as they complete the session which will help them earn and learn something. So to land onto a job or internship we try our every single contact which we have and tell them so that we can earn something and will remain out of home for a valid reason. This time we will try something different for the job/internship.

I suggest we can use social media or social networking efficiently so that we can have it. Companies, firms and businesses hire people via social network or at least they screen the candidate via social network. Recently I read news that a Businessman hired a person over the other just because he has talked with him on some social network site. Though all the people won’t do such thing but they can definitely use the networking site to screen that candidate.

LinkedIn is a social networking site made specifically for professional life. We can say that LinkedIn is a combination of Facebook and Twitter but it has many specific tools that help us further our career. The first thing we need to do is sign up for an account to fill out our profile. After filling the complete profile we can make connections on that site. On linkedIn there is no concept of friends or followers we have to make connections over there and they are divided in First Degree, Second Degree etc.

LinkedIn has a tool called as ResumeBuilder which takes all the information from the profile and builds resume for us. We can edit it as we want that means if we don’t want some columns in our resume so we can remove them. Another Tool is Career Explorer which is not only useful in finding your future job but also good for your life. Along with such powerful tools and functions some other functions such as wordpress, events,  slideshare etc. are there which can help us to build the resume. there are so many people out there on these social networking sitesI just said about linkedIn here but there are various other social networking sites such as twitter, facebook, myspace which can be used for the above purpose.

Social networking and social media sites has tremendous amounts of information. Most of it is publicly available. New search engines have been developed specifically to find information in Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Many of us are going to get a job now or then so we can use various other tools around us to get to our goal. As always all the social networking sites are free. So we can make use of all of them very properly.

YouTube Live

As the telecom technology improves the speed of Internet also increases. At the first we can only communicate within the restricted area and campus. But then we can communicate with the whole world with the help of wired internet or wireless internet. Then we have 2G wireless internet. Nowadays we has 3G wireless internet and the Broadband Wired internet with the increased connecting speed, browsing speed and downloading speed.

We can now watch live TV on the go with the help of 3G services we have. There are various other sites and applications which allow us to watch TV on the go or watch live streaming of a Football or Hockey Match.

 YouTube has announced YouTube Live, their new live streaming product. They’ve introduced a new browse page specifically for Live, where you can see an overview of the most compelling live events being broadcasted at any given moment. YouTube has started rolling out its live streaming beta platform, which will provide qualified YouTube partners the capability to broadcast live video via YouTube Live in the coming months. The platform will likely be rolled out very slowly to keep everything running smoothly without any problems.

Youtube has increased its Maximum upload limit to 15 minutes:

Youtube allows its users to upload the videos of 10 minutes though the number of videos is not restricted but the length of video is restricted. Now youtube is changing that they have increased their maximum upload limit to 15 minutes. The 10 minute limit was imposed to stop the piracy. It made the things difficult for the users though 15 minutes will not change condition more.

After TSUNAMI effect on World

Now 8 days have been passed after the tsunami hit Japan. People showed lot of courage after the tsunami and earthquake of more than 9 Richter scale. They never behaved like a Hippocrates where they should have behaved like it. But they kept their calm and cool to support their country their government started rescue operations in different parts of country affected by the tsunami and quake.  We must salute their courage. In this disaster where more than 16000 people are reported missing and died and official number is 6400+ are already dead.

The question is Will it affect the world?

But this is not main problem. As Japan is the world’s 3rd largest economy in world, various countries depend on them. In fact various other economies depend on them. The largest hit sector is automobiles and IT. According to the sources as their electricity supply broke down due to the failure of their Nuclear Power Plants. Almost all the nuclear power plants were shut down. Some of them exploded and radiation started from them. The radiation reached almost 300 miles away in Tokyo.

As said earlier in this post the largely hit sector are the Automobiles and IT. So according to the sources Honda halted production in their plants in Japan and can’t restart work their till Sunday which is now extended to Wednesday. Honda has told their dealers in US that they can’t start working in full fledge till the first week of May. Toyota and Nissan are also facing the same problem. They are unable to start production due to lack of fuel, power supply, raw material and the labours. The main thing to concern is that Japan is the main supplier of many electronic raw materials to the world. They supply worlds 57% of quota of various chips which go into the mobiles, cameras, laptops, computers, tablet PCs etc. Apple may face shortage of some parts of its new iPad2. And the same fate is followed by Sony, Hitachi.

As the world is already under the crisis of increasing cost of Crude oil this 9+ Richter scale rocked the world. This may lead Japan to recession and slow the global growth. As Japan is dealing with the nuclear breakout since Chernobyl and loss because of earthquake we can just hope that the effect of all this on the remaining world will be just Limited and Small.

Let us pray for the victims of this Disaster and Hope that Japan will come out of it Quickly.

God Bless us all.
