In this course, you will be using JavaScript and NodeJS to create Telegram Bots using an EASY-TO-LEARN Modern Framework called Telegraf.

First you will be learning the basic bot functions where you will understand the fundamental building blocks of the framework.

Next we will learn how to build 7 different bots, each focusing on a specific area that will allow you to familiarize yourself with the framework and Telegram Bot API.

The 7 Bots that you will build:

  • Echo Bot – Echos what you type, provides users with a help message, and has logging feature to log information into another chat.
  • Media Bot – Work with files like sending photos, Gifs, and documents from your computer, URL or File ID.
  • Simple API Bot – Invoke external APIs to send users a random fortune cookie, a random image of a cat, an image with a text message that you typed, get an image of a specific dog breed.

  • Search Bot – Supports inline query so that anyone in any chat can send an inline query to the bot to search for images or Wikipedia pages.

Finally we will learn how to deploy our bot using the Serverless Architecture with AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway. The Serverless Architecture will allow your bot to scale automatically and you do not have to worry about it crashing when there are too many users. You also do not have to worry about managing your own server and it is also free and extremely cheap to host with AWS Lambda.

All the bot scripts and codes will be available for you to download and use to maximize your learning and gain the most from the course.

At the end of the course, you will know how to do simple logging into a group chat, send different types of files, use external API, read Google Sheets, create custom keyboards with interactive menus, handle inline queries, and automatically post content from websites like Instagram and Facebook into your channel and many more.

This course also gives you a good stepping stone for you to explore deeper into building more complex bots.

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

 

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = $1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = $47

 

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = $234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $8.4

Direct labor per unit = $131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = $240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = $8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = $113,220 / 22,200
units sold = $5.1

TE = $26.8

 

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = $47 – $26.8

CM = $20.2 per unit

Enlightenment thinkers most contributed to the development of which political idea

[ad_1]

Answer:

The Neolithic revolution was a profound change in the life of mankind, in which one moves from a nomadic to a sedentary lifestyle, and an economy of collection and hunting is changed to one of agricultural production.

The cultivation of cereals, especially rye, wheat and barley, characteristic of the Fertile Growing zone, became relevant. It is believed, however, that they were not the first plant species to grow. Legumes date a very old crop and also some fruit trees from Asia. The use of ferments and yeasts, responsible for the production of bread and dairy products and, consequently, of alcoholic beverages, is also recorded.

The first animal to enter the habitat of man was the dog. Sheep, bovine and caprine domestication constitute a fundamental pillar of production today. The domestication of the horse occurred at that time, in the area of ​​Central Asia, along with that of the camelids, which occurred in different sectors.

In the Neolithic there was a demographic increase with respect to the paliolithic, so society was divided between those who plowed the earth, those who harvested, those who polished the stones, the collectors, those who work the ceramics and used the looms – mostly women- , those who built homes and those who looked after livestock. It is necessary to mention the entry into surplus scene. From its appearance, it is possible to exchange goods. This first type of trade is called barter.

It depended largely on the development of the factory system. d. It occurred because of years of planning in the United States in the mid-1700s. Please select the best answer from the choices provided

[ad_1]

Answer:

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

What role did James Madison play in the development of democracy in the United States

[ad_1]

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.
