Top 25 Punk Albums of All Time Punk has come a long way since its angry, energetic beginnings in the early ’70s. By the late ’70s, punk had become a force in music, not only for its hard-edged, quick and to the point style but also for the socio-political lyrics that frequently were present in the genre. Though punk started off as anti-establishment music with its biggest outlet coming in small, sweaty clubs, over time it has invaded the mainstream and spread its gospel with a killer beat behind it. In the forty years that punk music has existed, a lot of influential albums have been released and in the gallery above, we count down the Top 25 Punk Albums of All Time.

Situational leadership theory The situational leadership theory,is a leadership theory developed by Paul Hersey, professor and author of the book Situational Leader, and Ken Blanchard, leadership guru and author of The One Minute Manager, while working on the first edition of Management of Organizational Behavior (now in its 10th edition). The theory was first introduced as "Life Cycle Theory of Leadership". During the mid-1970s, "Life Cycle Theory of Leadership" was renamed "Situational Leadership theory". In the late 1970s/early 1980s, the authors both developed their own models using the situational leadership theory; Hersey - Situational Leadership Model and Blanchard et al. Situational Leadership II Model. The fundamental underpinning of the situational leadership theory is that there is no single "best" style of leadership. The Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Model rests on two fundamental concepts; leadership style and the individual or group's maturity level.
Marriage Isn't for You Having been married only a year and a half, I've recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn't for me. Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading. I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for 10 years until... until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. What Happens To Your Body When You Get Ebola? These are the same cells that the AIDS virus (HIV-1) attacks, but Ebola virus kills them far more aggressively. Exactly when and where you caught Ebola virus is unclear, it can take anything between two and 21 days from initial infection to the first symptoms. What is more certain is that you are now infectious yourself. Your family, friends and anyone in close contact with you are all in mortal danger. The next week or so will determine if you are one of the lucky minority who survive.
Five Ways To Keep Your Home Warm This Winter If you live in a poorly insulated home, and many of us do, you could spend thousands this winter on energy bills. But our ancestors had many ways to keep snug at little or no cost. Now, thanks to modern infrared cameras and advances in environmental physics, we can understand how these methods work and measure how effective they are. The key to understanding how to keep warm is the fact you lose more heat by radiation to your surroundings than you do by convection to the air. This is why your house feels so cold when you get back from a winter break, even after you’ve turned on the central heating; though the air quickly warms up, the walls take far longer to do so and may continue to make you shiver for up to a day. What to do about those warm windows?
Teacher Agency: Self-Directed Professional Development “I can’t wait for and am so excited for the three day ‘sit and git’ professional development in-service at our school” said no teacher possibly ever. “Let’s face it: Professional development, as we have known it for years now, has yielded little or no positive effects on student learning.” Thus complain the many weary professionals who flinch at the mere mention of the word “workshop.” In the collective imagination, the term “professional development day” conjures only images of coffee breaks, consultants in elegant outfits, and schools barren of kids.
Why I Tell My Employees to Bring Their Kids to Work - Sabrina Parsons by Sabrina Parsons | 11:00 AM April 22, 2014 I am the CEO of a fast-growing high-tech company. I’m also a mother of three boys, ages 9, 7, and 4, and I pride myself on being very involved in their lives. I have had to juggle kids and career for the last 10 years, and I cannot separate work and home life, as I’ve found that creates too much stress and pressure.
The 11 Differences Between Dating a Boy vs a Man When I was in my early twenties, if a guy acted aloof, called back only sometimes and showed minimal interest, I would get hooked. You could say I was addicted to the bad boy/ unavailable boy/ player. I was drawn to what psychotherapist, Ken Page terms as “attractions of deprivation” – when we are drawn to people who embody the worst emotional characteristics of our parents. Basically, the theory explains that we are attracted to people who can wound us the same way we were wounded in our childhood, as our psyche tries to recreate the past void and save us by changing its ending.
How Much Sleep Do You Really Need? We spend about 24 years of our lives sleeping, yet the exact function of sleep is still being debated by scientists. In experiments, researchers monitored three groups of participants who slept 4, 6, or 8 hours a night over an extended amount of time. After just two weeks, the group who slept 6 hours had a similar reaction time as a person whose blood alcohol concentration was 0.1 percent. Those who slept 4 hours would fall asleep during their cognitive tests. Here's the video from AsapSCIENCE. People who consistently sleep less than 7 to 8 hours a night may suffer cognitive issues. Classic albums represented as vintage Penguin paperbacks David Bowie, Aladdin Sane. Those red and blue spines seem artfully placed, hm?....... I’ve collected Penguin paperbacks for years; I’ve always been drawn to the groovy mid-century aesthetic of the covers from the pre-1980 era (actually pre-1970 for the really good stuff), with the stately and ineffably British typesetting and the promise of erudite treasures within. So something in me totally lit up when I saw the StandardDesigns shop at Etsy.
Six Ways to Be a Lifelong Learner I cringe when I hear an adults joke about not having read a book since high school. I especially cringe if the person who says that has any regular interaction with young people. It’s not so much the lack of reading that bothers me most; it’s more the pride that often accompanies the comment. Developing talent for large IT projects Large IT-driven transformation programs are important for creating business value in all industries. However, our research, conducted in collaboration with the University of Oxford, shows that 71 percent of large IT projects face cost overruns, and 33 percent of projects are around 50 percent over budget. On average, large IT projects deliver 56 percent less value than predicted.
The Excuses You Need To Stop Making If You're Serious About Being Happy Excuses comprise the root of much of our self-destructive behavior. People make excuses to prevent themselves from achieving greatness. This is a horrible mistake to make in life because all you are doing is sabotaging yourself.
