imageDear friends, I want to raise the issue that bothers me for some time. I work as a manager in a company, and I feel very uncomfortable when some employees are not happy with something, but they still sit and wait in silence. They are waiting quietly when their wages will be raised, doing uninteresting work in the hope that one day I will notice that and give them a new interesting project. They are sitting and feeling cold under the air-conditioner, taking sick days off, but they would never ask somebody to turn it off.

These people sit and make no complaint. And then, when the expectations’ limit is reached, they go quietly to another company for an interview instead of coming and talking to me about their problems.

Manager’s monologue


You are still sitting quietly and taking offence at something.

I always want to say, "well, what a kindergarten!” Am I a telepath? You just have no right to be offended until you talk to me about your problem! Why would you keep quiet?

Introduction


The purpose of this article is to introduce and possibly awake your interest in such thing as a mnemonic. Mnemonic is any learning technique that aids memory. It has the set of methods and tricks that will help you memorize a lot of information in the proper sequence. For example, 100 random words (numbers) can be memorized consecutively with an interval in 6 seconds. Some people manage to remember a few thousand digits after pi. In addition it helps to learn a foreign language. You probably ask: "Why do we need this mnemonic?” I say: you can use it as a hobby to amaze your friends, as well you could improve your memory skills, participate in various competitions and much more, it offers endless possibilities. Therefore, I would like to introduce some most popular techniques (devices) that are used around the world.

imageAccording to some saying, the programmers are human devices that convert caffeine into the programming code :)

If you ask any programmer when the most productive time to work, most likely that will be the night time. Someone may start earlier, somebody else could start later, and some people prefer to go to bed at 4 am. However, the most popular one to get up at 4 am and do the job before the daily turmoil will start.

The purpose of all this is to get rid of distractions during the day. What is so special about the night?

I think it all comes to three things: the maker’s schedule, sleepy brain and the bright computer screen.

Introduction


Hello my dear umumbleuser! In this post I am going to discuss the sleep and productive activity. I am interested in the topic of my own productive sleep. The last few years I thought that the sleep is just a waste of time, and therefore, I tried to shorten the time of my sleep. But the more I did it, the more I began to look like a zombie, and then I began to look for an alternative. Consequently, this post will be a synthesis of all the information I found. Let us begin!

We learn during our sleep

I would like to begin that sleep is not a waste of time. It was a great discovery for me. Our brain does not rest during our sleep, it processes the information. All the time while we are peacefully sleeping and dreaming, the brain is processing all the received information for the day. What it finds useful it puts in long-term memory for years to come, but that is not needed it throws out. Thus, when we are awake, we only collect information for further processing in our sleep. So, how does this happen? Here we need to get acquainted with concepts such as the types of sleep.
