You are probably here because you have encountered a website that pops up a dialog box or some other form of annoying modal widget preventing you from accessing the content of the website. Usually these dialogs will ask you to either register to their website, complete some kind of offer or to complete a survey before you can proceed to the website. The dialog usually contains a tinted background over the website's content preventing you from selecting or viewing anything else on the website. It usually looks something like this:


This can sometimes be very annoying, as you can see the dialog blocks us from accessing any of the content behind it. In this particular website the modal dialog shows up when it detects that we have visited the website more than once. I am going to show you a little trick to remove this signup dialog so we can access the websites content so the end result should look like this:





STEP 1

The methods can vary between web browsers, so just to make this clear we will be working with the Google Chrome browser this method will also work with other major browsers such as Firefox. Open your browser and go to the website containing the popup dialog. Ensure the the page is completely loaded before proceeding. In case we will be using this link. This is what the webpage currently looks like.


STEP 2

Hover you mouse over any of the dark background regions and right-click on the region. A menu consisting of a list of options should popup. It should now look something like this. The red star indicates the region that was right-clicked.



STEP 3

Select the 'Inspect Element' option from the menu list that popped up. A small window should show up showing lines of HTML code. You won't need to know what the codes mean but if you look closely you will see that a line of code has been automatically highlighted.




STEP 4

Now click on the line of code that has been highlighted and hit the delete button on your keyboard. This will remove the tinted dark background covering the website. Your end result should look something like this.


STEP 5

Now if there are still objects covering the content of the webpage you can just repeat steps 1 through to step 4 but this time instead of right-clicking the dark background you would instead right-click the object that is currently on the webpage that you want to remove. In our case the background has been removed however the signup dialog is still present. So to remove the signup dialog, going through the steps again, we would hover our mouse over the signup dialog (going as close as possible to one of its ends) and then right-click. Select the 'Inspect Element' option. The window containing the HTML code will popup. Click on the line of code that is highlighted and hit delete. You will repeat the steps until all objects blocking the webpage are removed. This is the end result after removing the signup dialog.

While there are a large number of drag-and-drop software and websites out there that will allow you to  create stunning diagrams only a select few take into consideration diagrams that involve software development.

Here I have compiled for you a list of websites that allow you to create UML diagrams.

DRAW.IO

You can either save your diagrams to google drive, One Drive, drop box or even to your computer/ device.

To remove these limits please refer to their pricing plans to see if there is a package that suits your budget.


Gliffy

Yet another astonishing web app that allows you to create UML diagrams. This website allows you to create a free account with a few restrictions. You are limited to only 5 diagrams and 2 MB of free storage so if you thing you'll need more room to draw then consider upgrading your free account when you register.

The internet is flooded with millions of science related websites that readers can visit to learn something new. A lot of these websites are often very detailed and may explain concepts in ways that kids may not understand. Not many websites take into account the age group of their readers and may end up neglecting younger visitors to their website. Here I have compiled for you 4 science sites that you may find useful for kids. The websites are selected based on the grade level and simplicity of the contents present.

This is yet another amazing website that teaches children about science. Along with the basic science categories such as technology, animals and chemistry Science Kids also covers fun facts.

The games are also science related and is a great way to attract kids to learn about the different areas of science.

Four Monsters that want to eat your brain
Its not only in sci-movies that there are actually parasites that actually want nutriments from the human brain.Yes there are invasive species that want to do that as well ,For now i'll present four different creatures that literally want to turn you all into zombies.
#1 Neueocystericerosis
The first is Neurocysticerosis this is caused by the accidental ingestion of eggs form Taenia solium otherwise known as (pork tapeworm) ,yes people beware of those so-called, sweet ,savoury tasting porks that you all enjoy.This is usually spread by people who is contaminated with Taeniasis. Neurocysticercosis is said to be one of the most common brain disease in developing countries and one of the main cause of epilepsy.


the cycle of the zombies infection Yahhh!!! haha ha beware peeps!.





what your brains look like when the crazies are finished!!! and note this person brain is out of his head ,so guess what yes he is dead.

Treatment /Prevention:Do not eat raw or uncooked meat especially pork meat which may be infected with taenia solium .The drug of choice is usually albendazole and also praziquantel.




#few Naegleia


   Naegleia is another rare infection that is unusual and fatal to the brain.The infection is caused by an amoeba that is common is lakes or fresh waters.Exposure usually occurs during water sport and swimming in lakes .



The amoeba travels up the nose and travels to the brain,where it causes severe damage.People that get infected normally dies within a week. Its been said that a lot of people get exposed per year ,however only some get infected guess its a matter of immunity on the individual level.

don't make the pretty colors fool you  this amoeba is deadly.
bad!!!! bad!!!! parasite do not infect the swimmers.



Treatment :Avoid the usage of ponds and lake ,note if an individual is totally submerged in the water it normally does not affect that person. As strange as it seems it is also said that a person hardly gets infected if they drink contaminated water. 




#3 Toxoplasmosis Gondii
This is a single aka one celled organism ,Most cases were reported in the USA .Very few infected individual individuals have shown symptoms primarily because a healthy persons immune systems usually keeps the parasite from causing illness.pregnant woman and individuals with compromise immune systems are usually at serious risks. 

when the parasite infects the brain.





Its those cute fur ball that's the vector so be cautious peeps!,The disease causes damage to the brain the eyes and other organ.


The disease is contracted from uncooked meat which are contaminated.meat such as  lamb and again Pork!!!! just saying.


see this cookie monster don't let it fool you that's what the parasite wants to do to your brain.


Treatment : includes freezing meat sources for several days below sub-zero temperatures .Do not intake under cook meat sources .Do not drink raw or unpasteurized goat milk,wash cutting boards utensils and hands with soapy water.


#4 Loa loa 

 The Loa loa is a parasite that is contracted from repeated bites from deer flies. Also known as mango flies or mangrove flies,the flies are normally found in high canopies of rain forest in central and west Africa. The infection is commonly associated with itchy swellings, and the presence of worm/worms in the eye. Yeah you heard right worm in the eye.
