Essays That Worked

Emily whispered to me as she stared out the car window at the gay couples walking down the rainbow streets of the Castro.

Emily’s visit sparked a period of growth in which I improved respecting values of those with an opposite viewpoint.

During debates in history class or jokes during lunch, I observe that these toxic assumptions produce an atmosphere of mistrust.

I find that abhorrence exhausting, especially considering that I experienced the beauty on both sides beneath the stereotypes.

Sometimes, pure adrenaline rushes through my body, making me want to bang my hands on the table out of complete anger towards an opinion.

I have learned, though, that suppressing my emotional side during a time of disagreement and instead responding with calmness gets my point across more effectively.

When that irritation begins to overtake my ability to concentrate on another person’s outlook, I always try to draw from my experiences of living both in the South and in the West.

I adore the end of a cross country race when all the girls from different schools hug and laugh with one another.

I strive to continue improving my ability to be comfortable with disagreement in order to learn more from my peers.

Check Out Our New Set of R01 Sample Applications

The primary resource for technical directions when completing an application is NIH’s Application Form Instructions.

As the name indicates, the page provides sample applications and summary statements for a variety of research project grant activity codes.

The new R01 sample applications include the biosketch requirement implemented in 2015, but they precede the implementation of FORMS-D and NIH’s rigor and reproducibility requirements from 2016.

Writing WebSocket client applications

If an error occurs while attempting to connect, first a simple event with the name error is sent to the WebSocket object (thereby invoking its onerror handler), and then the CloseEvent is sent to the WebSocket object (thereby invoking its onclose handler) to indicate the reason for the connection's closing.

If you want to open a connection and are flexible about the protocols you support, you can specify an array of protocols: Once the connection is established (that is, readyState is OPEN), exampleSocket.protocol will tell you which protocol the server selected.

We can at least be sure that attempting to send data only takes place once a connection is established by defining an onopen event handler to do the work: One handy thing you can do is use JSON to send reasonably complex data to the server.

There are assorted types of data packets the client might receive, such as: The code that interprets these incoming messages might look like this: Here we use JSON.parse() to convert the JSON object back into the original object, then examine and act upon its contents.

When you've finished using the WebSocket connection, call the WebSocket method close(): It may be helpful to examine the socket's bufferedAmount attribute before attempting to close the connection to determine if any data has yet to be transmitted on the network.
