Dear Mr. Post:
I am writing this letter to express some concern about my community and hopefully some insight as to how we can fix the epidemic of health and issues in our local community. Health promotion programs often lack a clearly specified theoretical foundation or are based on narrowly conceived conceptual models. For example, lifestyle modification programs typically emphasize individually focused behavior change strategies, while neglecting the environmental underpinnings of health and illness (Stokols, 1994). The ecological approach focuses on the population-level and individual level determinants of health and intervention. It has also been said that a population can achieve long-term health improvements when people become involved in their community and work together to effect change (Hanson, 1998-89). After looking at the Kaiser Permanente Community Health Initiative video it opened up my eyes. The video showed how certain communities are using a technology called Photovoice. It helps different members of the community show others what is happening there with hopefulness that it will get the messages reached out to others. It really helps by showing the legislatures and congressmen in their area what is going on in the communities around them. It’s a great tool that can promote safety and awareness. I really loved the fact that there are people out there that really want to help the communities where they live and how working together can turn their community into a healthy and safe place to be.
Where I live there are fast food restaurants on literally every corner. From Taco Bell, McDonalds, Jack n the Box, Pizza Hut, Taco Shops and Bars. The only somewhat healthy place to eat is a…...

The assignment involves writing three classes, plus a test class. The base class is a TaxableWorker class which contains a couple of attributes and methods common to all workers. The first derived class is a StateTaxableWorker which adds state tax information to a TaxableWorker. The second derived class is a LocalTaxableWorker which adds local tax information to a StateTaxableWorker. The test program will be structured to include a method which accepts a base class reference and demonstrates polymorphic behavior. NOTE: None of the first three classes below do any user input or console output! User input and console output are only done in the test program! The details of the three classes to be implemented are as follows: A TaxableWorker contains a name, an hourly pay rate (ie. 12.50/hr), and a federal tax rate (ie. 0.25). An explicit value constructor must be provided to set all three values. There must be mutator methods to change the values of the pay rate and the tax rate. There must be ONE......

Do not use any of the GUI editing capabilities of Eclipse for this assignment. Do all the GUI layout work based on what you have learned in class in the last 2 weeks. 2. You can use either inheritance or composition to get a JFrame into your application. 3. All member variables must be private. 4. The GUI and event handling setup must be done in the constructor of your GUI class or in privatemethods called from the constructor. Hint: it would seem logical to have a private method to build the top, left, and bottom panels. 5.

...COMP 274 Week 5 Homework Questions Answer the following questions: 1. Describe the graphical coordinate system in Java. Where is the origin? What units apply to the x,y coordinates? The horizontal axis is the x coordinate and the vertical axis is the y coordinate. The origin is the upper left corner of the display area. Moving to the right increases the x value, moving down increases the y value. The units are pixels. 2. How would you use the Graphics class to draw a line between 2 specific points? Give an example. public void paint(Graphics g) { Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g; Line2D lin = new Line2D.Float(5, 30, 380, 30); g2.draw(lin); } 3. How do you specify a particular color to be used as fill when using the Graphics class? g2.setPaint(Color.BLACK); 4. How would you create a SanSerif font of point size 14 that is bold and italic? Give an example. JButton b = new JButton("OK"); b.setFont(new Font("sansserif", Font.BOLD, 32)); 5. Given a graphics object g, write a few lines of code to have that graphics object draw a green circle (filled in) that has a diameter of 100 pixels. import java.awt.*; import java.applet.*; public class FirstApplet extends Applet { public void paint (Graphics g) { g.drawRect(40,20,200,100); g.drawOval(40,20,200,100); } 6.

Write a Java application to display the following GUI. At this point you are only implementing the display. We are not ready to make the calculator actually do any calculations! This program has the following requirements: 1. The size of the calculator is 250 x 250 pixels. 2. The background and foreground color of the calculator buttons must alternate in a checker board pattern as shown above. You can choose any pair of colors for your foreground and background colors. 3. The buttons should have at least 5 pixels of space between them. 4. The text on the buttons should be SanSerif size 16 and be bold. 5. Your application should be implemented in a single class. The main method of the class does nothing more than create an object of the class. The constructor of the class creates and displays the GUI. The constructor may call other methods of the class if needed. 6. The class must inherit from JFrame as the following demonstrates: public myGUI extends JFrame { … } The extends keyword specifies inheritance. Inside the class you can directly access methods of the JFrame......

Add controls so typing different keys on the keyboard cause the window to change size and background color as described below. Requirements: 1. You can NOT use loops of any kind in this program. 2. Your member variables must be private. 3. Your screen saver class must inherit from the JPanel class and it must have a JFrame member variable. 4. Your program must keep track of the number of shapes it draws on the screen and after 25 shapes have been drawn, it must clear the screen. This is most easily done by calling the base class (JPanel’s) paintComponent method. 5. You should use the Timer object to generate ActionEvents to drive your Screen Saver. Set the timer to fire an ActionEvent once a second. This will cause your actionPerformed method execute, which should simply call the repaint method. Calling the repaint method causes your paintComponent method to execute. 6.
