stress


In other words, both groups were stressed, but one group channeled the stress as a performance challenge; the other group as a performance threat. It wasn't the stress of a difficult test that caused distress--everyone felt that. It was how subjects interpreted their stress. - http://traderfeed.blogspot.com.au[..]mbracing-stress-minimizing-distress.html

A Stanford psychologist has a simple mental exercise for tackling student stress - https://qz.com[..]l-exercise-for-tackling-student-anxiety/

The 40% rule is simple: When your mind is telling you that you’re done, that you’re exhausted, that you cannot possibly go any further, you’re only actually 40% done. ( umm... not sure if it really useful all the time ) - https://www.forbes.com[..]the-40-rule-the-simple-secret-to-success

Note of SQL performance tuning


Note of this book - http://www.ocelot.ca/tuning.htm

1) Order of "and" and "or" is matter, if no cost-base optimizer

where column1 = 'a' and column2 = 'b' -> where column2 = 'b' and column1 = 'a' if column2 'b' is less likely

2) <> is more expensive than =

3) Can force to use index if SELECT * FROM table WHERE indexed_column > 0

4) UPPER(column) might lose information, use LOWER is better

5) WHERE column = 'WORD' or column = 'word' is always faster than WHERE LOWER(column) = 'word' , even faster version is test if database if case-insensitive: WHERE column = 'WORD' or ('WORD' <> 'word' AND column = 'word')

6) 32bit integer is the fastest datatype for 32bit OS

7) column in (?, ?) is faster than column =? or column = ? for some database, and don't slow in any database

8) For aggregate functions, prevent using having, try to use fewer columns in group by and use subquery if possible

9) In fact, count(1) is not faster than count(*)

10) CAST before aggregate function: SELECT CAST(SUM(column) AS INT) -> SELECT SUM(CAST(column as INT))

11) Use constant as much as possible, e.g.: select * from t1, t2 where t1.c1 = t2.c1 and t1.c1 = 1 -> select * from t1, t2 where t1.c1=1 andn t2.c1=1

12) Information of Join vs Subqueries

13) Information of optimum column type (VARCHAR, TIMESTAMP, WORD size INT and CHAR(1) usually better), shift effect for page

14) prevent NULL for porting issue

15) Low level table physical information

Some related links - http://www.techartifact.com[..]9/12/sql-optimization-tipsquestions.html

16) Prevent database level transaction, prevent joining, prevent locking ( like auto increment key ), pretty good suggestion - http://www.aviransplace.com/2015/08/12/mysql-is-a-great-nosql/

17) Reduce dataset for aggregation - https://www.periscopedata.com[..]-subqueries-to-count-distinct-50x-faster

Few good tips, like avoid cursors - http://www.javaworld.com[..]ent/21-rules-for-faster-sql-queries.html

bible study


9-4-2001 王上9-10 當神的靈臨到

這段聖經是當所羅門建成聖殿後,應允會常在聖殿中
1)不能鬆懈:神雖住在聖殿中,但如以色列人仍然離棄神,神也仍然會將祂的保守拿開
2)聖<---->人那充滿珠寶,極其華麗的聖殿,今天我們就是!記住自己尊 貴的身份
之後神大加所羅門╱以色列國的尊榮

10-4-2001  王上:11 所羅門王的背叛

記下了所羅門王如何離棄神及後因果
1)原因:隨從妻子的異教,所以要小心擇偶
2)智慧vs謙虛:智慧雖令以色列國享受了歷史上最長的繁榮,但卻不能長冶久;只有如摩西的謙虛心向神,才是值得高興
3)禍患不是所羅門身上,罪的後果可能很遙遠和很嚴重

17-4-2001 王上16 以色列國的自混亂

以色列國不斷的發生叛亂和內戰,因王都犯重罪,激發神的怒氣
思想:從前以色列人也是犯罪,但當災禍來到他們當中時,他們會呼求神並認罪.但如今以色列民的心中己經沒有神了,他們不悔改不認罪,以自己的方法和慾望解決問題,而不是在神面前認罪悔改
也許,這就是主耶穌所說的:我要使他們心硬,得不到醫治

17-4-2001 王上17 以利亞和寡婦

神差以利亞往宣佈大災難,之後神差祂往荒野,直到沒有水為止,之後神差他往外邦寡婦處,以大神蹟拯救以和亞和寡婦
神一步步的鍛鍊以利亞的信心,使他能作日後的大事.而寡婦也因以利亞得福,雖然她害怕因自己的罪而令兒子死亡,就如我們害怕神一樣,但神卻是施慈愛而不是施痛苦的神


22-4-2001 王上18 以利亞求火燒祭品,和殺巴力先知的事蹟
思想:
1)人為了權力,創造一些神出來使人民崇拜,或敬拜一些受歡迎的神,但結果卻是災禍
2)人在受災禍時以為神的錯,卻不知天下本是神的,是他們離棄神所招的禍
3)大多數人也對神無知時,就算神用大能的手叫他們知道神,也沒有用,他們仍然是任自己去離棄神

23-4-2001 王上19-20
以利亞被耶洗別追殺,當逃到亞奈山上時,耶和華差以利亞膏立數個王,以利沙從此跟隨以利亞,以色列人因神打敗亞蘭王,但仍不歸向神
思想:
1)當人遇患難時,神並不立時安慰,但差他作工,叫他在和神同工時經歷神
2)神的工作有快肴慢,以沙很快便蒙召,但王到很後才得嘗之
3)人有時將憐憫和從容搞亂,我們應憐憫罪人,但耶和華不能容的罪,我們卻不可從容
4)我們應重視神於人,免得像先知的門徒般,因尊重先知,不聽從他的話以致於死

4.5.2001王上22
以色列王聯同猶太王一起去攻打亞蘭國.猶太王要求先求間先知,於是王叫巴力先作預言,都是吉兆,但猶太王卻要求耶和華先知作預言,於是以色列王叫全國僅存的耶和華先作預言,那先知先說吉語,之後說死亡的預言.但亞哈不信,於是陣亡
之後聖經敘述猶太王約沙法說他是個敬虔的人,但和以色列王和好卻不願和以色列王太過親密
之後又說亞哈的兒子也在神面前犯罪
思想
1.神藉神靈作謊言,是何解呢?因神要用欺騙的方法殺亞哈嗎;?
2.亞哈做事看形勢不看神,當神助他二敗亞蘭時,他因力不足而不敢攻打亞蘭.但當國力足時卻不理神而去打仗,所以有如此下場
3.約沙法和以色列王和好,是後代犯罪的根示要給罪留地步


8-5-2001 王下1
以色列新王生病,但他求問耶和華,求問以革倫神巴力西卜.於是耶和華差遣以和亞咒咀新王.於是王再派使者求問以利亞,頭兩次的使者也被神擊殺了,唯有最後謙卑的使者得生存,於是以利亞往王面前再一次預言他的死
當我們面對王時,必須要謙卑.


9-5-2001 王下 2
記以利亞如何被旋風接離和以利沙所行的神蹟
思想:
1.那時先知們就像是有一個網路互相通訊.大家也知道以利亞會被接升天,但有些人卻是誤會神把以利亞投在某個山谷.可見並不是每個先知也正確理解神的異象
2.我們該以利沙般求難得的,珍貴的
3.耶利哥是被咀咒之城,煞而神也願醫冶,使城中的人得醫冶,所以,我們應為罪人得神的恩賜感謝
4.因何神容許以利沙咒詛童子?


10-5-2001 王下3-4
以色列王約蘭登位,他犯的罪比父母少,但仍然犯罪
那時,摩押王背叛以色列,以色列王就和猶太王一起進攻,但情勢不利水源不足,於是王派人問以利沙.以利沙預言吉說,會有水源,又會打勝仗.果然如此午至逼摩押王燒死長子才擺手,之後敘述以利沙行;的神蹟
1.令門徒寡婦有倒不盡的油以還債
2.替尊敬他的婦人求子,並救他復活
3.替門徒的湯解毒
4.用少盡的餅餵飽眾人
思想:
因以色列王和猶太王認識神,神就賜福給他們,但以色列王沒有憐憫的心,要滅盡那耶和華沒有吩咐滅盡的,所以招至他人的憤怒
另外,他所作的神蹟和耶穌類,日後人見耶穌行這些神蹟,人就應曉得耶穌乃是出於神的

11-5-2001 王下5,6:1-7
以利沙繼續行大神蹟..他使亞蘭國的元帥乃縵的大痳瘋又門徒尋著在水中的斧頭
思想:
1.以色列戰敗並不使神蒙恥,正如神使乃縵得醫冶
2.就算是以前,神也施給外邦人
3.以利沙不肯受禮物,使乃縵把自己獻給神.就如今天我們也要把傳福音為最要緊的事
4.基哈因貪財要得大痳瘋

王下6:7-33
亞蘭王又打以色列,以利沙卻說出亞蘭軍的所在地,於是猶太王便躲避亞蘭王.當亞蘭王知道此事後,就要殺以利沙.但以利沙卻使殺亞蘭人的眼目昏迷,使之被擄.之後又放了他們,於是國便太平了
之後亞蘭王又攻撒瑪利亞.王聽見國中的慘事後,將責任歸給神,要殺以利沙洩憤.但以利沙預言必有解救但王的的僕人不信.之後,在城中的痳瘋病患者果真發現了解救,於是城的物價也都下降了.
思想:
1.神又再次幫助以色列王,可是王卻對神的認識只於神的恩典,所以當遇遇到困難時,就棄神而不顧.求神叫我們認識神多些,免得迷糊
2.我們要知道神會保守我們的,就如以利沙看見天將
3.神雖煞叫約書亞領以色列人攻迦南,殺死所有迦南人,但神都不許以色列王殺今次的亞蘭人,可見神會施恩給外邦人
4.軍長看輕神,以致招死亡,可見神是不可輕慢的
5.神並不選他人作報喜訊的人,卻選痳瘋人


12-5-2001 王下8
1.從前以利沙救活兒子的母親因饑荒離開以色列,後來返田碰巧正和以利沙的僕人談論這事.於是王便歸還婦人所有的予她
2.以利沙預言哈薛會成為王,並攻擊以色列,果然,哈薛便殺了他的主和奪位
3.猶太國出了兩個不敬畏神的王都是亞哈的親人.以致以東人和立拿人背叛
思想?
敬畏耶和華的神必賜福,背叛耶和華的神必把他的手拿開

12-5-2001 王下9-10
耶和華要施行公義審判亞哈的一家.於是膏耶戶作以色列王.於是耶戶便殺了亞哈一家和猶大王和他的弟兄,並用計殺了所有拜巴力的人,把巴力從以色列中除去.但他仍然犯罪拜金牛.所以他的國仍不長久.
思想:
]1,耶戶殺猶太王,是否神的意思呢?
2.我們要靈巧像蛇看耶戶也用計殺巴力先知吧
