IBM CEO Ginni Rometty: Failing Fast

In the post, I mentioned the poisonous sales culture (you live by the sword, you die by the sword), which is at the center (of blame) for this and last quarter’s missed performance targets. Another concern was the ‘garage sale’ of business units that would inevitably have to come if IBM were to meet its targets. As we have recently learned, IBM appears to be in the process of selling its server business to Lenovo, and it has long been rumored to be preparing its services business for sale as well.

It seems Ginni may be failing faster than even I had predicted. The Do's And Dont's Of Writing Erotic Fiction. Sex is at the heart of what it means to be human.

How to Clean and Sanitize Wet Books

I’m concerned about possible bacteria in and on the books. The books have varying degrees of wetness. On some, just the cover got wet, and on others, the pages got wet too. Is there any way that I can sanitize them so that I can still use them? When books get wet, prompt action is the key to restoring them and bringing them back to life. How to Clean Shimano STI Shifters and Brake Levers. Neil asked: How do I clean the Shimano STI shifters and brake levers on my bicycle?

How to Clean Shimano STI Shifters and Brake Levers

My road bike STI shifters and brake levers get gunked up with road grime and sweat and eventually the up-shift won’t work because the ratchet is stuck. Cleaning with degreaser seems to just wash the gunk further into the shifter, plus it coats the contacts of the gear position sensors so the flight-deck computer no longer works because it doesn’t see the correct gear setting.

wait but why: Putting Time In Perspective

It’s not our fault—the spans of time in human history, and even more so in natural history, are so vast compared to the span of our life and recent history that it’s almost impossible to get a handle on it. If the Earth formed at midnight and the present moment is the next midnight, 24 hours later, modern humans have been around since 11:59:59pm—1 second.

And if human history itself spans 24 hours from one midnight to the next, 14 minutes represents the time since Christ. To try to grasp some perspective, I mapped out the history of time as a series of growing timelines—each timeline contains all the previous timelines (colors will help you see which timelines are which).

Scientists in Britain are proposing a complete revamping of drug classifications in the wake of findings that reveal some major discrepancies between a drug's legality and its safeness.

A study surveying health, crime and science professionals regarding the dangers of a set of 20 legal and illegal drugs, published in The Lancet in March 2007, found that alcohol and tobacco, which are legal in Britain and the United States, are considered by experts to be more dangerous than ecstasy and marijuana, which are illegal in both countries.

In Britain, under the Misuse of Drugs Act, illegal drugs (including prescription drugs sold on the street) are classified as A, B or C.
