What are the best delivery methods for handing off designs to developers? What are the pros and cons of different delivery methods?

That's a great question and I am really happy provide my 'few cents' on the matter.

The first most important thing you need to know is that being in constant communication with the developer during the the very first steps of mocking up a project KEY!

  1. Firstly because you really need to know what you can realistically achieve UI and UX-wise. Bounce off your initial ideas as quick as you can possibly conceptualise them. Often times you'll save yourself hours of work before you invested in actually getting it done. Some things are just very hard to achieve in code and what's in your head is often enough inefficient to do.
  2. It's tremendously helpful if you at least know how certain modules are coded. Let's take a small sidebar that's supposed to expand upon 'swipe right' gesture done by the user. You'll find out that if you keep things simple the best possible solution would be to draw the shape and shading of it in code rather than you slicing an image for it. So take into consideration that lots of things can be achieved in code. Especially with the new 'flat aesthetic' taking over. A trick of the trade would be PaintCode. You either draw and shade elements or import shapes from Photoshop. The app spews out excellent Objective-C drawing code, which saves you tons of horrors and assures instant resolution independency. It future-proofs the elements of your design (not the design itself 😉 ).
  3. So let's imagine you still have to slice things in Photoshop. It's usually icons and complex elements that can't be developed in a sane and efficient way. One thing comes to mind – Automated Design Delivery for Photoshop – PNGExpress… Now… I cannot praise this Photoshop extension enough! It had saved me countless of hours over the past year or something. Let me show you a spritesheet of mine as an example:

All of those mDPI, hDPI and xHDPI icons are sliced with one click. I won't be telling you more about the process of achieving it, it's easy and you'll figure it out.

So all in all… the best way to ship designs to your developer is the optimal way you and him (her) decide it to be! Every project should be treated as an unique scenario and you should always be an integral part of the coding process, otherwise you risk your design not coming across in the best way possible.

As for standard practices:

Compressed PNGs are an industry standard. You should slice icons with padding around them, you should strive for pixel perfection and constantly think of how things would be coded. I don't think that sending your developer a bunch of PSDs would give birth to something amazing… The chances are slim.

A thing I do recently is actually animate my designs in Quarz Composer or After Effects and ship short, looping animations for the developers to check out. It clears out tons of questions and displays your UX intent in the best possible way.

So yeah… I hope this helps. If you have more questions feel free to drop me a line!

Union Public Service Commission (India): Which is the best coaching institute for IAS in NCR?

I would have said Vajiram and ravi for general Studies if it was 2011 or so. UPSC changed the pattern and questions have become analytical. Vajiram has not been able to make the transition. Still dealing in old style. Neither good for Prelims nor Mains. Join Sriram's. You will benefit. No known teacher in Vajiram. People in Delhi know it. But outsiders mainly from Tamil Nadu are keeping the institute going.

What is your review of G-star Raw?

I have g star raw t-shirts which are very comfortable to wear on daily basis. I have a jeans too which is the most comfortable one I have wore till date. Being a 100mtr sprinter, I have muscular and big thighs so no jeans used to fit me. G star raw is the first one which has fit me perfectly.

How do I go about turning my start up idea into a successful venture?

tl;dr – Use the resources you have to get the resources you need.

Long version – What resources do you truly need? The scope of your initial idea is almost certainly too large, rather than too small. Start thinking about how to strip things away, to get to the very core of your idea. In Lean Startup terminology, this is the "Minimum Viable Product" (MVP). (Oh, and read The Lean Startup.) This can be far, far smaller than you think. Try building mockups, or models. Test those on potential users and see what they think.

Now, what resources do you have? How much time can you make available for your idea? How much money? What skills do you currently have? For example, you might not know how to build a website, but you know how to draw, at least. You can draw pictures of what you want it to be, and you'll learn from them. You can register a domain name, start an LLC, set up a landing page, and do a lot of things to make it feel professional and real, for very little money.

Once you know what you have, and what you need, you can start figuring out ways to leverage what you have to get what you need. This is where the "Go get funding" answer breaks down. How do you get funding? After all, great ideas are a dime a dozen in the startup world. Even if your idea is great, why should they invest in yours, and not any of the other hundred startups vying for their attention? This is where you need to actually build something (and hopefully sell something). Given a choice between a five star idea, and a four star idea that has actually been built and sold to customers, virtually all investors will choose the four star idea.

Money isn't the only thing you need, though, or the only way to get the things you need. You need customers. How do you get those? Especially if you don't have a working product? Figure that out, and everyone will find you a lot more interesting than they do when you tell them about your brilliant idea that you don't have the resources to build.

What happens if science suddenly proves that there is no god?

Firstly I think the question is outside the domain of science. The question of a deistic god is philosophical and not a scientific one. What science can prove is the fallacy of the physical attributions ascribed to such a concept in traditional discourse where the concept of a god is not simply one of a deistic kind but an interfering kind who engages in answering prayers, violating the laws of nature etc, which can conclusively be debunked by science.

Coming to the question asked, I think being able to conclusively prove the nonexistence of any such metaphysical entity using science (which is by definition outside the purview of science and not possible), there wouldn't be any such paradigm shift as the question seems to demand. No matter how simplistic an argument as such could be found, the change will be marginal at best (purely due to the effect of the discovery of such a proof in itself).

Why would that be?
This stems from the basic concept of faith itself. The concept of faith itself is the suspension of any criticism even in the form of definitive proof as is demanded by the entity in which the faith is placed (whose very existence might be in question). It is not a question of ignorance of a proposed proof that goes contrary to one's notions regarding the belief in a god, it is a universal cognitive dissonance that just suspends the idea of any proof or logic itself working in the direction of contradicting such a belief in god.

To put it simply, it is a part of the human condition to profess loyalty to long held beliefs over concretely affirmative evidence to the contrary irrespective of the simplicity of the evidence proposed.

Evidence
I propose the following evidence in favor of my hypothesis.

1. Rising cadres of Creationism.
Despite overwhelming evidence in support of an obvious theory like evolution, the "radical" creationist dogma of a 6000 year old earth created as mentioned in the bible has not suffered any setback in terms of the followers, infact several countries are facing a rising number of supporters of such an oft debunked idea with legal challenges to the teaching of evolution in schools.
Reference: Scopes Trial.

2. Continuing belief in easily debunked superstitions like Astrology, Palmistry, Handwriting Analysis, Card Reading, Tea Reading, Black         Magic.
Perhaps one of the best examples of mass engagements of widespread             cognitive dissonance is the continuing appreciation of astrology as an actual       indicator of futuristic events, something that can, and is, easily debunked by       science often, but keeps having a stringent group of believers irrespective of       educational qualifications or expertise, especially in countries like India. Other     kind of similar superstitions as mentioned above also keep increasingly             having more benefactors despite obvious debunks.

3. Continuing belief in Godmen's healing powers, homeopathy, naturalopathy etc.
Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, we have people from all walks of life, from Nobel laureates to the common man having continuing belief in debunked alternative medicine approaches like homeopathy, aroma therapy, reiki and the like. Also a continuing faith in street magicians masquerading as godmen with some even starting personality cults seems to be on the rise.

4. Conspiracy theories, anti vaccination, pro marijuana groups.
Once again despite concrete evidence to the contrary we have loads of people succumbing to such easily debunked ideas and making issues where none exist, often displaying a persecution complex which is contrived. (Pharmaceutical monopoly conspiracy, etc).
An extremely misleading advertisement of the benefits of Tetrahydrocannibinol as found in marijuana.

These and more similar examples can be found all over the place, while not in the same category as the existence of a God, they serve as great examples to display how inspite of concrete evidence to the contrary of these beliefs we have loads of people continuing to have such faith in such ideas in the presence of concrete proof in the negative.

These situations suggest that irrespective of the existence of a proof, the continuing belief in the supernatural will continue to exist. For as said by philosophers such as Descartes: The existence of god is a matter of faith, not of evidence for the same. Physics or logical evidence only serves to bolster the case for such but cannot disprove the same.

What are the good startup ideas?

Startup ideas should surface from a problem. As such, the best startup ideas solve real problems that affect many people.

Here is a list of what Y Combinator believes to be the problem areas where the most breakthrough technologies will emerge. I suspect excellent startup ideas will solve some of these.

Energy

There is a remarkable correlation between the cost of energy and quality of life. Throughout history, when the cost of energy has come down a lot (for example, with the steam engine) the quality of life goes up a lot.

Cheap energy would do a huge amount to reduce poverty. New energy sources could also help the environment, the economy, reduce war, ensure a stable future, make food and water more abundant, and much more.

We believe economics will dominate – new sources must be cheaper than old ones, without subsidies, and be able to scale to global demand. Nuclear energy can hit the bid, and possibly so can renewables. But pricing is the first order question.

In addition to generation, we're also interested in energy storage and transmission. 10x better batteries would enable great new things, as would the ability to easily move energy around.

A.I.

Relative to the potential impact, it doesn't seem like enough smart people are working on this.

A lot of smart people talk about AI with a combination of awe and fear, both for good reasons. But it feels like it could be one of the dividing lines in the history of technology, where before and after look totally different.

Robotics

Robots will be a major way we get things done in the physical world.

Our definition is pretty broad – for example, we count a self-driving car as a robot. Robots are how we'll likely explore space and maybe even the human body.

Biotech

It's still early, but it seems like we're finally making real progress hacking biology.

There are so many directions this can go – fighting disease, slowing aging, merging humans and computers, downloading memories, genetic programming, etc. We are certain that this is going to be a surprising, powerful and controversial field over the next several decades – it feels a little bit like microcomputers in the 1970s.

Healthcare

Healthcare in the United States is badly broken. We are getting close to spending 20% of our GDP on healthcare; this is unsustainable.

We're interested in ways to make healthcare better for less money, not in companies that are able to exploit the system by overcharging. We're especially interested in preventative healthcare, as this is probably the highest-leverage way to improve health. Sensors and data are interesting in lots of different areas, but especially for healthcare.

Food & Water

At some point, we are going to have problems with food and water availability.
Technology can almost certainly improve this. Great innovations are possible – we will need another advancement on the scale of what Norman Borlaug did.

Education

If we can fix education, we can eventually do everything else on this list.
The first attempts to use technology to fix education have focused on using the Internet to distribute traditional content to a wider audience. This is good, but the Internet is a fundamentally different medium and capable of much more.

Solutions that combine the mass scale of technology with one-on-one in-person interaction are particularly interesting to us.

This may not require a "breakthrough" technology in the classical sense, but at a minimum it will require very new ways of doing things.

Internet Infrastructure

We can't imagine life without the Internet. We need to be sure it keeps working – this includes everything from security to free and open communication to infrastructure.

The Internet is a transformative power, and we're particularly interested in applications that transform the big underpinnings of society (bitcoin is a great example!). The Internet lets people around the world coordinate action – there are almost certainly important businesses to be built around this concept.

Of particular interest to us are ways to use the Internet to fix government – for example, crowdfunding social services.

An important trend is the API-ification of everything. As more and more businesses are accessible with a web API, the Internet becomes more and more powerful.

Levers

We're interested in technology that multiplies the efforts and productivity of individuals.

Robots are a great example, but this also includes areas like new programming languages, powered exoskeletons, augmented reality, etc.

Science

Science seems broken. The current funding models are broken and favor political skill over scientific genius.

We need new business models for basic research. There are a lot of areas where scientific developments can have huge commercial applications – materials, neuroscience, climate engineering, and cheaper/better ways to get to space, just to name a few – and we'd love to figure out a way for it to happen. Bell Labs worked a long time ago but would probably not work in today's world.

Transportation & Housing

About half of all energy is used on transportation, and people spend a huge amount of time unhappily commuting.

Face-to-face interaction is still really important; people still need to move around. And housing continues to get more expensive, partially due to difficulties in transportation. We're interested in better ways for people to live somewhere nice, work together, and have easier commutes.

One Million Jobs

We want to fund companies that have the potential to create a million jobs.
There are a lot of areas where it makes sense to divide labor between humans and computers—we are very good at some things computers are terrible at and vice versa—and some of these require huge amounts of human resources.
This is both good for the world and likely a good business strategy—as existing jobs go away, a company that creates a lot of new jobs should be able to get a lot of talented people.
