Gnat Problems

One miserable day, I flew around the jungle and saw a lion. I felt like fighting him, he made me feel mad.

"Bowwow owww" yelled the lion as he got stung by me.

"Take that you selfish fool!!!" I yelled at the lion.

"Try to get me!!!" I screamed out.

He tried to strike me back but hit himself instead. The lion kept doing that until he was covered with bruises and scratches. Unfortunately, my parents saw everything and told me I had to go to Anger Management For Gnats and More.

"Do I have to?" I asked feeling reluctant.

"YES!!!" My parents told me.

My parents sent me right away to Anger Management For Gnats and More. It was located in a so-called secret place, in a hole, hidden under a dead bush.
I decided to complain one last time, in case they let me stay home.

"Please, please, pretty please, can you cancel it and just let me stay home?" I asked with my cutest look.

Of course, they said no. I brought toys, but they weren't allowed. I had to wear this weird-looking uniform made out of banana peels. It made me look like a rotten sponge.

The therapist came and said, "Everyone, sit down. I am Dr. Banana." Now I understood why we had banana peels as our uniforms. "OK, Stinkbug you get to go first and tell everyone why you get mad a lot!" Stinkbug walked up to the platform and took the microphone.

"Um, hi, I get mad because everyone thinks I'm.... too stinky!!!" Stinkbug says bursting into tears.

Dr. Banana came up to him trying to calm him down and breaths with his mouth. "OK, it's over, you can take a seat now.

Next was the centipede, "I get made fun of because of my legs! They say that my legs were sewn on when I was little because I was having trouble walking!!!"

"Wow, now that's something that someone would probably be mad about!" Dr. Banana exclaimed.

Next up was me. I slowly went up trying to think why I was so angry, but couldn't think of one. I took a breath and explained, "I get mad because when a lion was eating lunch, I heard a weird voice inside of me say, 'Go disturb that lion, I don't like him, go, go, go!!!' and I did!!! It just happened."

"I understand now, that is your little devil. You should never listen to him. Listen to the angel instead." Dr. Banana explained.

"OK" I replied thoughtfully.

More bugs went up to tell their story as I thought about what the therapist said to me and suddenly I felt better but guilty about what I did to the lion. When the class was over everyone felt better and was free to go back home.

 Before I flew back home I went to the lion's den a said, "I'm sorry about what I did before, I don't know what got to me."

The lion responded,"That's alright, I forgive you. But, you have to do me a favor."

"Of course! What do need me to do?"

"I need you to....."

 The End

React way to use D3 - ( Python as API )

The Inspiration
Andmap is trying to build new BI product, the tech stacks would be D3 + ReactJS as data visualization frontend, Web API, and Python provides data. As with most new projects, it didn’t take long to figure out the major roadblocks. D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG, and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation. In one of our initial discovery sessions, we realized that our application needs to be able to adapt D3 library in ReactJS way. More than that, we prefer utilizing new feature of React - Hooks. Finally, we build  component for each chart and Helpers file for drawing each chart. Here is sample for map chart:

map.js - map chart container -
using useEffect hook

- to draw charts

The Trip to the Pacific Garbage Patch

(My name is M&M) I was thrown into a garbage can after I was used from The Mystical Smoothie Palace.
The wind was blowing and the garbage can was filled past the top, so I got blown off. I started rolling away towards the ocean. On my way to the ocean it was very rough because while I was rolling with the wind about 1 million people stepped on me (It was actually 20 people). I was flattened badly, but luckily I couldn’t feel a thing. A seagull tried to eat me but thought I didn’t taste good enough (thankfully). The wind kept blowing me until… I saw the sea for the first time!!! I’ve only heard tales about it from my old buddies,
but this is better than I ever imagined!!! I can’t wait to get in!!! The wind blew me faster than ever, until I wasn’t rolling anymore, I was flying over the ocean!!! I’m in the ocean!!! The fresh smell!!! I was floating deeper in the ocean as I heard the waves roar faint away. Soon, I couldn’t see the shore, but I still heard voices. I turned around and sa…
