Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “Williams was suffering, she says, from nature withdrawal. She spent the next three years digging into the science of how nature works on our brains. In short, it makes us more relaxed, more creative, and more socially connected. She traveled to Japan and Finland, the deserts of Utah and the urban forests of Singapore, to study just how much we stand to gain by bring nature back into our lives.” – Anxiety, depression, distraction — what if the cure is just outside?
  • “In this way, tDCS can modulate the signal-to-noise ratio in a select brain region and tweak information processing. The word “tweak” here is key. tDCS doesn’t transfer meaningful information — it only improves the ability of subjects to learn.” – Does Zapping Your Brain Actually Help You Learn Faster?
  • “There’s no point in reading something if you don’t take some of it with you. This simple exercise, when used with diligent note taking, can help you retain more of everything you read.” – Improve Your Reading Comprehension by Writing Three-Sentence Summaries
  • “If you grew up reading, Dr. Seuss should have ideally been a favourite on your bookshelves. His stories were super fun, the rhymes were lovely and, thankfully, they didn’t really have a moral compass or inclination, which meant we were free to interpret it the way we wished. Today, as we celebrate his 113th birth anniversary, here’s taking a look at some of his best works that you can still re-read and refresh all those childhood lessons if not memories.” – Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss: 5 Of His Children’s Books That Every Adult Needs To Read
  • “When Johnson informed Ginsburg he would be leading me through her workout, she told him, ‘I hope he makes it through.’ This was obviously some sort of coded instruction to humiliate me, because after the stretching, Johnson announced he would make me use double the weight that Ginsburg did on the strength exercises to achieve the same effect.” – I Did Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Workout. It Nearly Broke Me.
