Excel 2010: Conditional Formatting Imagine you have a spreadsheet with thousands of rows of data. It would be extremely difficult to see patterns and trends just from examining the raw data. Excel gives us several tools that will make this task easier. One of these tools is called conditional formatting. With conditional formatting, you can apply formatting to one or more cells based on the value of the cell. You can highlight interesting or unusual cell values, and visualize the data using formatting such as colors, icons, and data bars. In this lesson, you will learn how to apply, modify, and remove conditional formatting rules. Conditional formatting applies one or more rules to any cells that you want. An example of a rule might be “If the value is greater than 5000, color the cell yellow.” By applying this rule to the cells in a worksheet, you’ll be able to see at a glance which cells are over 5000. There are also rules that can mark the top 10 items, all cells that are below the average, cells that are within a certain date range, and many more.

Richard asks…

Separating with fiancé do you think it’s right to ask him to repay me?

My fiancé of 5 years and I are separating we have 2 children a 4 month old and a 19 month old I received a compensation payout 4 years ago when we were dating and I used 145000 of it as a deposit on our home which we sold we ended up getting 100000 back and last year I compromised and spent 10000 on my car and 30000 on his as he is a carpenter and was setting up to be self employed u also spent about 15000 for his trailer and tools I had also previously paid out his 12000 and 10000 car loans he has just started being self employed but now we are separating and part of me feels as though he should repay some of this as he will no longer be supporting us and has a great car and all his tools for work and no loan where most people would when I have an average car and no longer any savings as I invested pretty much all of it in him :( do you think I am horrible as I intend to ask him to repay 200 a fortnight over the next 4 years so that he eventually repays me 20000? I would like to put 5000 in a trust account for each of our children and have 10000 to be saved so I can hopefully look at buying a home down the track when I can start/finish uni and stet working again. Please if you feel it’s not right do not be hurtful emotionally I can’t handle it I would just like some constructive advice thanks in advance :)

Denny answers:

It wouldn’t hurt to ask/seek repayment. But let it be a lesson to you to not ever do something like that again, unless of course you are married and will be entitled half of it anyways ;) Good luck hun.

Donald asks…

Why didn’t Jesus do this?????

Many Christians on here have said that Jesus and God are the same spirit, the same thing. If this is the case, then Jesus was all knowing, and all powerful. From what I understand, the Bible supports this because of the miracles he preforms, along with the knowledge of the people around him and his own death.

I would then have to imagine a God like this, that is walking Earth to save souls and better people’s lives, wouldn’t do it a the extremely small way that he did.

Why didn’t Jesus not only speak of God, and how to live your life through God, teach us some things about Math, Science, Culture. Why didn’t he teach knowledge to the farmers, teach them new ideas of farming, new tools. Why not teach them the REAL world on which they lived? He was a carpenter right? Why not teach people to build easy buildings with structures that could only be destroyed by God with the materials at hand? Why not teach them things in medicine or health like bacteria. Certainly he could have told them not to go to the bathroom in the rivers they drank from.Overall, why not give them practical things besides a religious belief to help better their lives.

I just think that if peoples’ lives were better in those aspects, they would be happier, less likely to sin, and therefore more people would go to God for eternity. Why not do that for every single person? He had the power, the knowledge.

Help the world and give everyone an equal chance, or spit in people’s eyes one face at a time? I just don’t understand.

Denny answers:

His purpose was to further His Fathers Kingdom, not mankind’s.

Building an electric guitar in wood shop?

I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to make a guitar in high school wood shop. I’m just talking about the basic components not all electronics or paint job. Do you think it’s possible in one semester? Do you suggest avoiding it all together to prevent enormous failure? haha. Please help. My dad is a carpenter and I help out all of the time so I know quite a bit about construction and tools if that’s any advantage. I want to make my own Les Paul right now because I won’t be able to afford my own Gibby until after this summer of working, I don’t need any information on how to build one, just how long it would take.

Denny answers:

Took me 6 months

A day in my summer woodshop for kids class

My summer class was set up in a double garage. The workbenches were inside but with the door open we were able to use the outside area in front of the garage, all in al a nice space. Although the class is woodworking, I always have a table of puzzles (mechanical, electrical, wood) my marble roll and builder boards. I bring these extra things so kids can have something to do before everyone arrives, if they finish their projects early, or if they just want or need a break. The class is two hours and there are 10 kids. It goes like this:

Kids will usually drift in over a 10 or 15 minute period. If a child comes early and has a project to finish or knows exactly what she wants to build she can go to work (except on the first day). Otherwise we wait till everyone arrives mainly because it irritates me to repeat beginning directions over and over. They have to be repeated enough as it is.

I have a “project of the day” set out on a table and kids can check it out. After everyone arrives we all sit down and I usually start with a short lesson. I think of woodworking as a series of very short lessons so I’ll take any opportunity to repeat something I’ve seen people having difficulties with. I might say, “I noticed some kids were having trouble with using the drill press so I just wanted to go over again how to use it.” Or, “I want to show you how to cut a larger piece of wood that won’t fit in the vice………” Or “today I’d like to show you a tool we haven’t used yet, the clamp (or rip saw or spiral screwdriver etc.). Whatever little demo I choose, usually just short sections from the tool use section in this book, I make it short and too the point and directly related to a problem someone encountered.

After the demo I show the project of the day. A teacher can handle only so many projects. The way I keep a lid (or try to) on the number of different projects being built (while still offering kids a choice) is to have a “project of the day”. It works like this: today the project of the day is boxes (whatever). If you’d like to build a box come over here and I’ll show you how to get started. If you don’t want to build the project of the day and know what you want to build and know how to start, go ahead and start. If you need help getting started on a different project I’ll be with you in a minute. Meanwhile try to get the wood ready or try and figure the first step yourself.

Usually out of 10 kids 6 or 7 will want to build the POD. One or two kids will be happy on their own, without much supervision. After I’ve started the project of the day one or two kids will want a little help getting started so I’ll do that. Maybe one child will want to build something unrealistic (a working robot, a giant toy box) or too advanced for their skills so I’ll try to talk them into something more realistic. After everyone is started I go around and help whoever needs help. The problems children have for any given project are predictable. If everything goes well for the teacher, which it will after a little practice, projects will move along smoothly.

Every once in a while, especially during the first year or two of teaching, things will become hectic. Kids will need more help than you are able to give. Frustration, both yours and the kids will mount. This is almost always a result of trying to help build too many different projects, or projects which are too difficult. It’s easy to fall down this path before you realize its happening. After a while, when being stretched, I learned to say something like, “This project requires quite a bit of help. I got five different projects going now and I’m having trouble helping everyone. Could we save it for tomorrow? Maybe you could choose something you can do by yourself or without quite so much help.”

The first year I taught was rather hectic mostly because (I think) about half of the projects I’d thought up were too difficult. For begining students I still have to remind myself: simplify, simplify, simplify. The following years the class was still busy, often very busy, but deinitely under control. Every year kids dream up new things to build, and new ways to build, them eliciting in me the old, “why didn’t I think of that,” response. Sometimes I’m rewarded with the chance to just sit and watch everyone working on their own. All in all, woodworking with kids has been the most fun, interesting and meaningful woodworking I’ve done.
