Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Whether it’s a big stack of bills, heavy workloads, or that bastard Greg not liking the meme you tagged him in, it doesn’t take long for stuff to pile up and make you feel overloaded. Stress is a creeping problem, slowly bubbling beneath the surface often without you even realising it. It’s all too easy to push worries to the back of your mind and soldier on regardless of the mental weight you’re carrying.” – 10 Most Relaxing Video Games For When You Just Need To Unwind
  • “An uptick in anxiety levels — whether due to the never-ending negative news cycle, long hours at work, family drama, or something else — can have a serious impact on sleep. (Who hasn’t lain awake at night with worries racing through their brain?) If you find yourself tossing and turning, you need a new strategy when you hit the sack…” – How To Go To Sleep When You’re Stressed To The Max
  • “Relax with 10 white-noisy hours of cracking ice, idling engines and falling snow, courtesy of YouTube.” – White Noise: 10 soothing hours of an Arctic icebreaker
  • “‘Our marketing people wondered if anyone had ever seen how machines really talk. So we decided to show it,’ said Kone president and CEO Henrik Ehrnrooth. The real-time page shows four elevators communicating with Kone’s cloud-based network that feeds into IBM’s Watson platform. There’s also an audio function that allows visitors to listen to the conversation.” – Need some soothing? Listen to elevators talk
  • “The warm weekend had melted the top layer of ice, and much of the shoreline now consists of ice with an inch or two of water on top. That not only allowed the gulls to look as if they were standing on water, but gave the ice sheets a nearly friction-free surface to slide into the lake. The sound of the crackling ice could be heard a half mile down the recreation trail.” – Watch mesmerizing ice sheets bump and slide on Onondaga Lake
