Federal Election Commision Organizations that can receive unlimited individual, corporate, and union contributions. Have become increasingly relevant because the IRS isn’t attempting to monitor it. Contributed 300 Million Dollars to the 2012 election cycle. Campaign Finances- Nice and Simple Soft Money PACs Citizens United vs FEC McConnel v Federal Election Commision Court case claiming that limits on Campaign contributions was a violation of the first amendments right to free speech Super PACs contributions to a political party and not a specific candidate to avoid limitations on contribution amounts Essentially, Issue Ads Shortcomings What resulted in the creation of the Super PAC Essentially, it cemented the value that if a committee didn’t make direct contributions to candidates, and only raised independent expenditures, then it would be limitless, because there is no constitutional basis to limit it McCucheon vs. Fec Act that limited the effects of soft money on political campaigns and forced a "stand by your ad" provision in which candidates to include a statement of endorsement on ads that they funded or support But was attacked by several legal disputes and took a while to come into full effect in political elections Often referred to in the context of Dark Money, organizations like this have become increasingly relevant in recent years. Contributions made not by organizations or PACs but by individuals at their own expense and are subject to specific limitations on contributions A supreme court case which held that section 441 of the FECA (limiting contributions of an individual over a period of 2 years to national party and federal candidate commities) was uncostitutional Independent Expenditures Supreme court ruled that limits on individual and candidate expenditures were unconstitutional but upheld disclosure of expenditures and limits on contributions to candidates 501(c)(4) Hard Money Type of PAC that is not limited in how much money it may raise but can not coordinate directly with parties or candidates Politically active nonprofit organization. In this case the supreme court upheld the constitutionality of most of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BRCA) A supreme court case in which the supreme court held that the first amendment of free speech prohibited restriction of independent political expenditures by the federal government by Shea Johnson and Dylan McCoy Money or donations which are backed up by physical property Individual contributions Somebody currently holding office Incumbents Federal Election Campaign Act FECA is the umbrella law that tries Dark Money A communication that advocates for or against a specific candidate but is not endorsed or authorized by any candidate This case changed several fundamental aspects of the FEC and set a precedent that unlimited election spending was something that needed to be guarded against Communications meant to bring up specific problems and raise awareness for them Buckley V.

Transcript: WPF Templating Styles Property Triggers Data Triggers Event Triggers Templates Refactoring It is better practice to store templates and other large resources as seperate resource dictionaries. As an example, we would store our custom Listbox in a resource dictionary called CustomListBox.xaml and import it in our App when we want to instantiate that custom control. Control Templates Apply a set of property values to an element Change the appearance of any style-related (read: asthetic) property Used when you need to have a common set of property values on multiple elements Default Style element is FrameworkElement. Specify TargetType to style other elements IsMouseOver = true Visual tree takes the hierarchical tree and expands its elements into all visual components. Control templates are XAML "recipe" for a control. We can copy the contents of a control template and modify it to "reskin" a core WPF control. Templates vs. Styles Although you can find the templates for WPF core controls in MSDN documentation, easiest way is to use Expression Blend. - Add a control - Right Click on control -> Edit Template Templates used for hierarchical data such as TreeViewItem and MenuItem A chunk of XAML markup that defines how a bound data object should be displayed. Visual Tree Hierarchical Data Templates Styles EventTriggers are hooked up to routed events and generally spark an animation related action on the element to which the style applies. Used to bind to properties of the control to which you are applying the template. Useful when the property is not specific to the aspects you are customizing. Event Triggers Item Panel Templates Templates used to override how objects are layed out in a Panel (or any class derived from Panel). DataTriggers work much like PropertyTriggers but operate on any object property instead of just WPF dependency Property. Property Triggers Logical Tree vs. Visual Tree Styles are used to adjust properties of an element. Templates can replace the entire visual tree of an element. Ex. Use template to replace the background of a button with an ellipse or path object. Data Triggers Styles can be inherited from other styles. Simply use the property "BasedOn" in the Style element. Data Templates Logical tree is a representative tree that describes the heirarchical composition of a WPF application. Style Inheritance IsMouseOver = false Define a list of setters that are activated when specific condition is met. Template Bindings Triggers Logical Tree

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
Transcript: Templates The key to generic programs a simple code! Output? Answer Namespaces Namespace is a feature added in C++ and not present in C. A namespace is a declarative region that provides a scope to the identifiers (names of the types, function, variables etc) inside it. Multiple namespace blocks with the same name are allowed. Templates Templates Templates are powerful features of C++ which allows you to write generic programs. In simple terms, you can create a single function or a class to work with different data types using templates. Advantages: Readability Flexibility Re-usability Function Template FUnction Templates A single function template can work with different data types at once but, a single normal function can only work with one set of data types. Normally, if you need to perform identical operations on two or more types of data, you use function overloading. However, a better approach would be to use function templates because you can perform the same task writing less and maintainable code. Example Sometimes, you need a class implementation that is same for all classes, only the data types used are different. Normally, you would need to create a different class for each data type OR create different member variables and functions within a single class. This will unnecessarily bloat your code base and will be hard to maintain, as a change is one class/function should be performed on all classes/functions. Class Template Class Templates Example virtual functions virtual functions Virtual functions ensure that the correct function is called for an object, regardless of the type of reference (or pointer) used for function call. They are mainly used to achieve Run-time polymorphism. The prototype of virtual functions should be same in base as well as derived class. They are always defined in base class and overridden in derived class. It is not mandatory for derived class to override Example Pass by reference Pass-by-reference means to pass the reference of an argument in the calling function to the corresponding formal parameter of the called function. The called function can modify the value of the argument by using its reference passed in. Does not copy the arguments. The formal parameter is an alias for the argument. References cannot be NULL.
