Sometimes a particular point of comparison or contrast might be relevant but not terribly revealing or interesting. For example, if you are writing a paper about Wordsworth 8767 s 8775 Tintern Abbey 8776 and Coleridge 8767 s 8775 Frost at Midnight, 8776 pointing out that they both have nature as a central theme is relevant (comparisons of poetry often talk about themes) but not terribly interesting your class has probably already had many discussions about the Romantic poets 8767 fondness for nature. Talking about the different ways nature is depicted or the different aspects of nature that are emphasized might be more interesting and show a more sophisticated understanding of the poems.
But really, writing code like this - lots of logic in a domready statement - with either framework, I'd argue, is itself a bad practice. It's far better to encapsulate your logic into reusable chunks.
The "this" keyword allows objects that inherit from other objects to refer to themselves, but there are times when you may want to reference something else through "this". This is called binding , wherein you specify a different "this" for a method. The "each" method on Array allows you to specify the bound object with a second argument. Here's an example of where you might want to pass in a different "this":
Your first task in this assignment will be to develop a good profile of both novels. You can do this by making a few simple lists of traits that might be comparable. For each novel, identify a list of characters and their roles in the story or important characteristics, and any important struggles, time periods, or major symbols (like an element of nature).
I am a MooTools developer. I work on the MooTools framework. I blog about MooTools. I wrote the main online tutorial and the book about MooTools. Obviously, I have a perspective that is somewhat biased. I'll also point out that I don't use jQuery that often. If you're a jQuery developer and see anything that I have misrepresented here, please contact me and help me rectify the issue. My objective here is to be helpful and accurate to people - not to sell one framework over another.
The goal is to make a simple list of comparable characteristics for both of your subjects. As an example, here is a short list comparing e-books with traditional textbooks.
A compare and contrast essay (or comparative essay) asks you to examine two similar but different things. It is a common assignment in many classrooms and allows you to really study the benefits and shortcomings of each subject.
This has some down sides. First of all, our faq class is going to repeat our selector for the definitions, which might be expensive there's no way to store the retrieved definitions and pass it on for the second time they are needed. Secondly, we can't add our ajax logic into the middle of the faq plug-in's own logic for displaying the definition. The original plug-in called slideToggle which expands the definition using an effect. This is problematic because this effect is going to go off before our ajax finishes loading. There's no real solution here unless we just duplicate the entire faq plug-in.
Now that you have an overview of how classes work in MooTools, let's look at our faq class that we wrote in jQuery and write it as we would in MooTools and then extend it to add Ajax to it just as we did with jQuery.
 From the simplest system of pulleys and ropes in ancient Greece to the most complex supercomputer in the world today, machines have had (and continue to have) a profound influence on the development of humanity. While some argue that machines have a negative impact on us, the increasing prevalence of intelligent machines in the world challenge us to change long held beliefs about our limitations and to continue forward to new and even more advanced possibilities.
jQuery focuses on expressiveness, quick and easy coding, and the DOM while MooTools focuses on extension, inheritance, legibility, reuse, and maintainability. If you put those two things on opposite sides of a scale, the jQuery side translates into something with which it's easy to get started and see quick results but (in my experience) can turn into code that's harder to reuse and maintain (but really that's up to you it's not jQuery's problem, per se), while the MooTools side takes longer to learn and requires you to write more code upfront before you see results, but afterwards is more reusable and more maintainable.
Perspective One: What we lose with the replacement of people by machines is some part of our own humanity. Even our mundane daily encounters no longer require from us basic courtesy, respect, and tolerance for other people.
When you start your first body paragraph , try to think of a first sentence that refers back to the first paragraph. Ideally, you'll start every paragraph by referring back to your thesis to create a unified argument.
Once you know your basis for comparison, think critically about the similarities and differences between the items you are comparing, and compile a list of them.
I will say that sometimes jQuery can become too esoteric for my taste. The methods don't always make sense to me just looking at them and I find it hard to parse. This is somewhat unfair though, as I am intimately familiar with MooTools, so reading MooTools is easy for me. But one of the things I appreciate about MooTools is how almost all the method and class names really name the thing. Methods are almost always verbs and leave little doubt as to what they do. Every programming language requires you to go to the docs to look up syntax when you write it - I'm not saying that. I'm just saying that I find the API of MooTools to be more coherent and consistent.
