In Front of the Screen, Brain Dead - Breathing Space Blog

The Daily Mail, in the U.K. reported in 2012: "One of Britain's leading inventors has warned that  a 'Google generation' who rely on the internet for everything are in danger of becoming 'brain-dead'. Trevor Baylis, who invented the wind-up radio, said children are losing creativity and practical skills because they spend too much time in front of screens."

"...the next generation of inventors is being lost, with young people often unable to make anything with their hands."

Express Yourself, Live Longer? - Breathing Space Blog

The Medical Daily reports "If you're angry, for the benefit of your health, you need to let it all out, according to a new study that revealed that being hot-tempered and expressing your anger could be a key to enjoying a long and healthy life."

All such studies must be viewed over time and corroborated.

Oh Those Weekend Calories - Breathing Space Blog

A study in the Annals of Epistemology reports that the typical male in Americas society consumes an extra 453 calories between Friday evening and Sunday evening. In terms of watching your diet, no matter how good you might be Monday through Friday, if you're like most men, you ease up a bit starting on Friday night, straight through the weekend. Arguably, this is worse during the football season in winter and many men are indoors watching college football on Saturday and pro football on Sunday.

Those 453 extra calories per weekend, times 52 weeks adds up to you guessed it, 23556 more calories in the course of the year. If you’re able to cut your calorie consumption during the weekend, while still maintaining your relatively good habits on weekdays, you'll have it made.

Forewarned is forearmed.

Most Projects Fail. Here's Why - Breathing Space Blog

Most corporate projects fail. When a company experiences too many failed projects they sometimes turn to outside experts. Allen Evitts, founder and CEO of Essential Project Manager™ is one such expert. He’s found that in many cases, his clients had been seeking to establish project management processes as if they were all part of a machine. They wanted to create a generic form of project management that would apply to everything they attempted to achieve.

So, on projects large and small, apply cookie-cutter approaches. They believe by effectively manipulating project resources, and perhaps improve their reporting, all will be well.

“The problem is that they are overlooking the human element,” observes Evitts. “Within a single organization, and focusing on only a handful of projects, a cookie-cutter approach will still be ineffective.” Evitts believes that while corporations strive to have everything be consistent, trackable, and measurable, the unique nature of projects all but negates the ability to homogenize them. “Variation in human capabilities as well as interactivity all but ensures that each project must be viewed separately,” he says.
