This 103-year-old philosopher's to-do list will get you through self-isolation

Like everybody else, Romanian philosopher Mihai Sora is stuck inside. He is keeping busy for a 103-year-old man, and keeping the world up to date on his indoor adventures with Facebook. His to-do list is impressive, but not so impressive it can't be used by most people. The social isolation necessitated by COVID-19 is difficult for a lot of people. Between being mostly stuck inside, having reduced contact with other people, and the creeping boredom that comes after you've done everything on your...

Managers Need To Know What Makes A Workplace Toxic

A toxic workplace is bad for everyone who works there Image Credit: eek the cat So what kind of workplace do you work in?

Reinstalling a computer every 3 years good idea

I bought a MacBook Pro in 2012 and it has seen a series of upgrades. It came with 10.9 and since then has been upgraded to 10.11.2. A few days ago I started to see screen corruption where parts of the background or “desktop” would increasingly get more distorted the more I used it. Since there is not an easy way to change the display “driver” like you would do in Windows I had to think how to fix this problem. I could of course have thrown away preference files, spent time googling it, and reall...

SG-1 episodes thoughtful

I am watching an SG-1 episode and I really like how thoughtful it is in pointing out different points of view. In this episode Daniel is infected by an alien virus that causes him to appear insane.

I like how Daniel wasn’t crazy, but didn’t have a good experience with people who are only trained to see crazy. I see very often in daily life that peo...
