Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “I’ve mentioned it many times before, but while I like to relax, I prefer to keep my brain stimulated with some challenge so it doesn’t turn into mush. And while I feel like I’ve tried every puzzle game out there, I’m still always looking out for more, and Polycolor is one that intrigued me when I saw it on the App Store. After spending some time with it, I can say that it’s definitely a clever puzzle to unwind with.” – Color Your Way to Zen in Polycolor’s Relaxing Puzzles
  • “Dan Bell proves he’s the Ken Burns of suburban decay with his beautifully shot and narrated Dead Mall Series. The Rehoboth Mall episode above is especially interesting because he interviews one of two remaining tenants, husband and wife tailors working on the periphery of the abandoned food court. Dan’s eye for detail and music choices are sublime. It’s the sort of footage that historians will cite decades hence, it’s that good.” – Watch these soothing tours of barely-open malls
  • “[Researchers] at the Stanford University School of Medicine looked at which neurons within the brain stem are responsible for regulating different types of breathing — regular, yawning, sighing, and so on. After searching through public databases, researchers identified these neurons by the process of elimination: ‘knocking out’ a single type of neuron in laboratory mice and analyzing how it affected their breathing.” – Study Reveals The Best Way To De-Stress & It’s Actually Pretty Simple
  • “Rhythmic breathing has a mental effect, says Dr. Wei, who co-authored ‘The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yoga.’ It draws your attention away from what is stressing you and toward what you’re feeling, which has a calming effect. In addition, you trigger positive psychological changes.” – A Harvard-trained psychologist shows you how to destress at work in just 2 minutes
