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 FORMAT YOUR CV TO IMPRESS EMPLOYERS

68
Having a well-formatted CV is almost as important as having a well written CV. 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. In addition to key words, what stands out the most about your CV is its format.

It is essentially the first thing people will notice, whether on paper or in electronic form. There are a number of rules you should keep in mind when formatting your CV. First, start with a blank page.
Avoid using templates that are already available in Microsoft Word. These templates 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.
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.
Ideally, your CV should fit on one page; if you have extensive experience, limit the length of the CV to two pages, but only list experiences and skills relevant to your career objective. Even if you are applying for a job in a creative field, do not insert images or pictures into your CV. If you are looking to show off your creativity, you can do so in a separate portfolio of your work.
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. Your name, and any headlines in your CV should be displayed in the same manner. Typically, the headlines will be in all caps, and in bold.
Try not to underline any of the information in your CV. In the world of Internet driven job applications, underlining in a document implies a web link. Thus, using underlining for emphasis is not appropriate.
The font size for headlines should not exceed 14 points; the remainder of the text in the CV should not exceed 12 points. When trying to align your CV, be ware of spacing and tabbing. Stay consistent in the way that you are spacing out the information on the page.
Use tabs, rather than spaces. You always have to anticipate that the person you are sending your CV to may have a different version of the software than you and thus may not see the exactly the same CV you are sending – it is possible that the margins will reset, paragraphs will shift, bullet points will change shape, etc.
This is why you must keep the spacing consistent, as well as try to keep the font and the bullet points as basic as possible. 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 looking for.
