Depression… A followup

I am sorry for that last post it was something written several years ago and was a moment of a self reflection and at the time I was in a very depressed state.The estimate of my  personal and professional  accomplishments, as well as my overall emotional state is significantly different than from the time the post was made …which was several years ago…

I apologize …

We Americans step up and are models and examples for the world and we are so much better when we work together because its been our strength, to work directly not not indirectly through our government which is so poorly managed it failed to make even these small points possible

Let’s Talk: Open Office Floor Plans

Very thoughtful article about the pros and cons (there are manY) of the Open office floor plan.

Sublunar Reflections

There’s been some discussion in the news lately  about open office floor plans. By removing walls and private offices, an open floor plan encourages collaboration and interaction amongst coworkers, something that has been known to boost overall company morale. This set up has been championed by many top tier companies, most of whom are headquartered in Silicon Valley. However, what open floor plans haven’t been successful at is increasing productivity. In fact, it’s practically killing it.

Working around other people is all well and good when you’re in a collaborative environment. For creative thinkers, being around a team of people with whom you can share ideas helps inspire innovative and impressive work. For most people though, their coworkers are nothing but a distraction.

Before giving my opinion on this subject, let me preface this statement by letting you know that I genuinely like my coworkers. They’re great people and they’ve…

Fully-customized, modular solar house is 3D printed prefab

Another trend that could be huge ..
Consider that these house are built with the geographical location in mind… a house made in say Charlotte NC would be vastly different than one built for Vancouver BC and very different than one built for Madrid despite having the same plan. . Because they are built to suit the environment the homeowner can realize enormous efficiencies in energy use in terms of use of light, environmental control and even water usage.

42. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you ‘squeeze’ for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie.
They are:Monday = Blue,
Tuesday = Green,
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow.

So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green – Red – White – Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.
