Watch Gary Hamel, celebrated management thinker and author and co-founder of the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX), make the case for reinventing management for the 21st century. In this fast-paced, idea-packed, 15-minute video essay, Hamel paints a vivid picture of what it means to build organizations that are fundamentally fit for the future—resilient, inventive, inspiring and accountable. "Modern” management is one of humanity’s most important inventions, Hamel argues.
Wrangling a raise out of your boss might seem like an impossibility in this economy, but if you start with a discussion about your value to the company and help your boss see that a raise is fair, you have a better chance of succeeding. Stuart Diamond, who teaches negotiation strategies to government and corporate managers, says you should start by asking the manager how he or she thinks you're doing. That helps set the stage for demonstrating ( with your list of accomplishments ) why a raise is only right. Diamond's tactic after getting a favorable response about how he's been doing at work is to ask a direct question: "Am I worth less to you now than I was worth last year?"
If you or your kids end up with a head lice problem, you don't necessarily need to invest in expensive and harsh shampoos to solve the problem. A jar of mayonnaise can do the trick. Daniel Packer, writing for frugal living blog Wise Bread, shares his discovery: A few years ago, I unfortunately got lice. I tried all the products that the local drug stores had to offer and found that nothing worked.
If you accidentally shrunk a shirt (or other article of clothing) in the wash, there's a quick fix: soak it in warm water and hair conditioner, then stretch it back out to its proper size. Redditor FawmahRhoDyelindah found that wearing it in the shower with warm water and pulling on it worked well, but oberstofsunshine posted a comment to share a potentially better solution: Soak the garment in hot water and hair conditioner for 5 minutes and then stretch it back to size. It works much better.
If it were a novel, people would criticize the plot for being too far-fetched – thriving colonies disappear overnight without leaving a trace, the bodies of the victims are never found. Only in this case, it’s not fiction: It’s what’s happening to fully a third of commercial beehives, over a million colonies every year. Seemingly healthy communities fly off never to return.
La liste de ce matériel est loin d'être exhaustive mais regroupe néanmoins la majorité de ce dont vous aurez besoin. Si le virus vous prend, cette liste pourra s'allonger avec notamment une équerre en métal (avec un rebord de retenue), une cale à poncer, une grande planche de découpes, etc,... Le matériel incontournable Du carton : à récupérer si possible sans trou (d’agrafes par exemple) et n’ayant pas subi la pluie. Il existe en simple, double ou triple cannelure : leurs utilisations diffèrent selon leurs épaisseurs et on utilisera plus volontiers l’un de ces trois types de carton selon le type de meuble ou la partie du meuble à réaliser.
We recently told you about Mozilla's new Webmaker projects that teach you how to code , and the first one is ready for a test drive right now. Thimble is an easy to use, in-browser HTML editor that shows you the finished product right alongside your code, so you can learn as you go. Thimble won't teach you HTML directly—you'd still want to have something like Codeacademy on hand—but it's a tool that makes learning a lot easier.
How to set up sync on Windows 8 Whether you love or hate Windows 8's Metro interface , its syncing feature makes it immensely valuable to both people with more than one device, and those who know how frustrating it can be to lose personal data and settings from a crash. Windows 8 can run a local account, but if you use a Microsoft account -- formerly known as a Windows Live account -- you'll be able to sync some app settings and passwords; Internet Explorer 10 history, preferences, and bookmarks; desktop options such as log-in, lock screen, and colors; search preferences; language preferences; and keyboard and mouse settings. To set it up, go to the Charms bar, then Settings, and More PC Settings at the bottom of the sidebar. That will open the Windows 8 settings screen.
Drinking alcohol may enhance a person’s problem solving skills, according to a new study. (Photo : REUTERS/Regis Duvignau) Scientists found that participants with a BAC of 0.07 or higher solved 40 percent more problems than their sober counterparts and took 12 seconds to complete the tasks compared to 15.5 seconds by teetotal participants. Scientists found that men who either drank two pints of beer or two glasses of wine before solving brain teasers not only got more questions right, they also were quicker in delivering correct answers, compared to men who answered the questions sober.
Did you know instead of sticking seeds individually into the ground or haphazardly throwing them into the earth you could roll them out on tissue paper to plant them right where you want them? Well, yes you can! Besides being an easy way of planting tiny seeds that are a pain to sow individually, you can use this technique to create arrangements in container gardens. All you need for your seed tape project is toilet paper, some glue, tweezers, and toilet paper rolls.
by Rick Broida Click to view Last week we took a big step toward improving your MP3 collection by leveling the track volume . Now it's time to focus on album art , which is less of a practical improvement and more of a fun one. Indeed, there's something to be said for eyeballing an album cover when you play a song. It draws you in a little more, connects you with the band or artist.
