lightroom


If you using mac and like to have post editing of digital photo, Definitely worth to try:
http://www.macromedia.com[..]n/entitlement/index.cfm?e=labs_lightroom

A free (until beta period finish) competitor of Aperture. The auto tuning work excellent. However, there is no plugin yet and require highend machine to work smooth. It take 400MB RAM for just a few RAW photo and it work like a dog on my poor mac mini. This is the first time of this 5 years I wish to have a better machine

Good naming is part of design. It sets expectations and communicates a model, showing how something should be understood and used. If you mean to tell the reader getMillisSince1970, don’t say getTime. Specific names inspire you to consider alternatives, to question whether you’re capturing the right abstraction in the right way.

Rarely will I get through every section of every book.  The idea is to create a kind of dialogue among the authors, identifying points of overlap and difference.  Very often, the ideas from one book will trigger ideas that have you scouring the other books for elaboration.  The mixture of ideas from several books will lead to a thought that is not contained in any of the books.  When you read in parallel, it's like being in the room while the authors are conversing.  The intersecting of ideas almost always stimulates fresh ways of thinking about (and applying) the topic at hand. - http://traderfeed.blogspot.hk[..]ding-in-parallel-becoming-better-at.html

So is there a way to speed up how quickly we can comprehend a word? When we read our inner voice sometimes vocalises the words in our head, and some suspect that this might slow us down. Could banishing that voice make a difference? Not necessarily. Internal vocalising might be helping us to understand what’s happening, according to research by eye-tracking psychologist Mallorie Leinenger.

But the good news is that there is a way of learning to read faster, and that is to practise. Again, we are not just limited by our vision. What matters is how fast you can identify a word – a process that is faster when the word is more familiar. So the more you read, the faster you can get. - https://www.bbc.com[..]icle/20191129-how-to-learn-to-speed-read

These 3 Hacks Will Make You Remember More - https://betterhumans.coach.me[..]will-make-you-remember-more-b30a3d9b3136

When trying to memorise new material, it’s easy to assume that the more work you put in, the better you will perform. Yet taking the occasional down time – to do literally nothing – may be exactly what you need. Just dim the lights, sit back, and enjoy 10-15 minutes of quiet contemplation, and you’ll find that your memory of the facts you have just learnt is far better than if you had attempted to use that moment more productively. - http://www.bbc.com[..]effortless-way-to-strengthen-your-memory

In animals, weight training appeared to promote the creation of new neurons in the memory centers of the brain. - https://www.nytimes.com[..]w-weight-training-changes-the-brain.html

The method works something like this: you use a familiar environment, such as your home, and walk through the environment associating information (like words or digits) you want to remember with various objects or scenery. In order to recall the digits in the right order, you simply have to do a mental walk through your mind palace. In Lu’s case, he devised an intricate story, and assigned images such as a chair, a king or a horse to two-digit combinations of numbers ranging from “00” to “99.” - https://www.zmescience.com[..]e-but-theres-something-that-comes-close/

offshore


Recently I help the company offshore some work to CN developers, many difficulty I've encounter, most difficult one is it is hard to share the vision and big picture to CN developers.

This article mention a few good notes http://martinfowler.com/articles/agileOffshore.html , the one I think I am lacking is having short meeting with them often. I will see if we can have video conferencing so that we are easier to meet.

The other tips here - http://www.theserverside.com[..]_id=45367&asrc=EM_NLN_1439070&uid=703565 but I think the tips list is too long and probably only apply to large enterprise

Relaxing tips - http://thehousenews.com[..]%9B%E5%A3%93%E5%B0%8F%E8%B2%BC%E5%A3%AB/


積極思考能夠緩解壓力,這一點毫不令人意外。不過明尼蘇達大學卡爾森管理學院工作及組織學教授、該報告的作者之一格隆布(Theresa Glomb)說,事實證明,積極正面的思考可能比用人單位目前采取的很多抗擊工作壓力的方法都更實用,這些方法包括提供靈活的工作安排或創建新的組織結構圖,而這實際上并沒有改變辦公室的日常生活。

寫下一天中發生的好事本身就很有價值,但格隆布說,真正的影響來自寫下為何這些事會讓你感覺良好。這樣做會凸顯出一個人在工作生活中獲得的資源和支持,比如技能、幽默感、讓你感到鼓舞的家人、或是一個富有同情心的老板。 - http://cn.wsj.com/big5/20130909/eoe073851.asp?source=rss

直覺的奧妙 — Blink - https://thestandnews.com[..]%A6%BA%E7%9A%84%E5%A5%A7%E5%A6%99-blink/

1)  How does the person spend his or her free time?  Per Ayn Rand's observation above, what does he or she do for enjoyment?  

2)  How does the person respond to your successes?  Many people are willing to commiserate with you when you're down and elevate themselves in the process.  A person of genuine goodwill celebrates your successes and is happy for your happiness.

3)  What strong beliefs does the person voice and live through their actions?  Character means standing for what you believe in and living your beliefs.  Go along and get along might be comfortable, but commitment is what powers effective action in the world.
