Six (6) Android Games You Should Play Now not Tomorrow

Got a new device? You need to get some new games. Here are some quick recommendations for great Android games. Some are familiar from other platforms. Some are free. Some are paid, and some have specific hardware requirements. All are listed here.
1.  Minecraft Pocket Edition
Why it is great: Minecraft is an entertaining block-building and survival game. You can play either in creative mode where you build and invent things in your own randomly generated world or you can play in survival mode where you use your wits and resources to survive against the creepers who come out at night.
Note – this does not connect with your main Minecraft account if you play the computer version of the game.
Play for yourself or keep it around to entertain kids. (Turn off in-app purchases if you do this.)
Minecraft is a paid app ($6.99) but you can find occasional sales, in-app purchases run from $0.50 to $1.99.   More »
2.  Lara Croft Go
Based on the popular Tomb Raider series and developed by Square Enix, Lara Craft Go is a relatively simple but very addictive puzzle game you can take with you. The puzzles are designed for short bursts of play, so pull it out in the doctor’s office waiting room or while riding the bus home.
Lara Croft Go sells for $4.99 but is occasionally on sale for $0.99. It allows in-app purchases. If you like this game, you can also check out Hitman Go, which is also from Square Enix.  More »
 
3.  Buttons and Scissors
This is a free puzzle game where you try to cut matching color buttons off of a square of denim. Mechanically this feels similar to Bejeweled, but not completely the same. The logic puzzles offer great challenges for players of all ages.
The other big advantage to this game is that it does not require any connectivity. You can play this game on devices that aren’t connected to Wi-Fi or in that signal dead spot.
Buttons and Scissors is a free download but allows in-app purchases.  More »
 Did you want to try out the new trend in adult coloring books, but you don’t want to carry around coloring pencil and a coloringb book? Try out this app instead. It’s appropriate for kids or adults, and while it’s not the same as coloring in an actual coloring book, it is still very satisfying.
Mandala Coloring Pages is free (with ads) but also allows in-app purchases.  More »
Yes. You can play an Android version of Portal. This is a real console game. As such, it requires a real console. This version will only work on the Nvidia Shield version of Android TV.  The Nvidia Shield starts at around $199 but allows you to stream movies and play Android games on your TV.
Portal starts at $1.99 but this is “introductory pricing.”  More »
If you have a phone with a fast processor and terrific screen display, you can take it for a ride with this virtual reality game. This is a first-person shooter where you aim at balloons. You’ll need Google Cardboard. This is an inexpensive accessory that you can either make or buy for around $15 and will turn your phone into a virtual reality device. Obviously not a game you can play while waiting in a doctor’s office (unless your doctor is awesome) but a fun novelty game to play by yourself or after having one of your friends try on the headset.
VR Cardboard Shooter 3D is a free download.  More »

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR CV TO GET EMPLOYERS ATTENTION

77
Job hunting can be one of the most exhilarating and yet one of the most agonizing experiences in your life. While you look forward to the new chapter in your professional life, finding a way to stand out from other candidates, who are at least equally qualified for the position you want, is a difficult task.

Your CV is the first contact your potential employer has with you. A well formatted and a well-written CV can make a difference between getting the interview and getting the job, and being passed over.
Most employers receive a stack of CVs of qualified candidates and scan them quickly before they decide whether or not hey want to read further.
You only have a few seconds to make a lasting impression. Don’t panic. Instead, focus on the design of your CV as it is the first thing your employer, whether on paper or in electronic form.
The most commonly made mistake in CV design include using templates that are already available in Microsoft Word. While these templates provide a quick, easy to follow tools to create your CV, they are outdated, and they will make your CV appear generic and uninviting. Additionally, these templates, while well formatted in Microsoft Word, will not translate well when emailed or uploaded to job search engine web sites.
Second most commonly made mistake in CV design is inclusion of graphics on the page. Your picture and/or any other graphics are not appropriate for a CV. Including anything outside of plain text will make you stand out in a way that makes the employer think you are not taking yourself seriously as a professional, and this is certainly not the first impression you want to make. You can find samples of CVs on the Internet; search for CVs by your industry to find the templates that make most sense for the job you are seeking.
Than work on a blank page to replicate the look and feel of the CV you like. The following are basic formatting rules for your CV: Limit the length of the CV to two pages. The page should have one-inch margins, top and bottom, right and left. Use left justification only – as a rule, do not center the content of your CV.
The font and font size should be consistent. The bullet points should be basic – use circles or squares, but never any symbols that may not translate well when you email your CV to your potential employer. Headlines can be in all caps; the remaining text should not have special formatting. Do not underline any of the information in your CV. In the world of Internet driven job applications, underlining in a document implies a web link.
The font size for headlines should not exceed 14 points; the remainder of the text in the CV should not exceed 12 points. Use the Tab key instead of the Space bar to create spaces between the text in your CV.
As a last formatting check point, ask your friends or your family for help in reviewing your CV. Send the CV file via email to a few of your friends – ask them to review the CV and make sure nothing seems out of place. Print out the CV on paper and review to make sure that margins are accurately set, and that the content doesn’t appear crowded on the page. Keep in mind – when it comes to your CV, sleek simple appearance, and great writing, will get you the job you are seeking.
