6 Things That Seem Like Splurges But Are Actually Savvy Buys Wise Bread Picks To splurge, or not to splurge, that is the question. There's a certain set that thinks the word "splurge" should be deleted from our vocabulary.

To each his own. (See also: Want to Cut Costs? Splurging is typically associated with high-cost indulges or pleasures, which at the end of the day might not be necessary to our survival.

Tall Bookcase with Adjustable Shelves Today I’m sharing easy plans for a tall bookshelf with adjustable shelves. The height in this plan is 72 3/4″ but you can modify to suite your needs. You can build one bookshelf for about $75. This plan used a rabbet cut into the bookshelf sides to hide the cabinet back. It’s easiest to cut on a table saw if you have a long out feed table. If you don’t feel comfortable with the rabbet, simply attach the back panel to the bookcase back and adjust your face frame to extend 1/4″ on each side to accommodate a side panel to hide the side of the back panel as shown in my Faceframe 101 post.

Buddhist Economics: How to Stop Prioritizing Goods Over People and Consumption Over Creative Activity by Maria Popova “Work and leisure are complementary parts of the same living process and cannot be separated without destroying the joy of work and the bliss of leisure.” Much has been said about the difference between money and wealth and how we, as individuals, can make more of the latter, but the divergence between the two is arguably even more important the larger scale of nations and the global economy. What does it really mean to create wealth for people — for humanity — as opposed to money for governments and corporations? That’s precisely what the influential German-born British economist, statistician, Rhodes Scholar, and economic theorist E. One of the most compelling essays in the book, titled “Buddhist Economics,” applies spiritual principles and moral purpose to the question of wealth. “Right Livelihood” is one of the requirements of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. There is universal agreement that a fundamental source of wealth is human labor. E.F. Thanks, Jocelyn
Gantt chart A Gantt chart showing three kinds of schedule dependencies (in red) and percent complete indications. Although now regarded as a common charting technique, Gantt charts were considered revolutionary when first introduced. This chart is also used in information technology to represent data that have been collected. Historical development The first known tool of this type was developed in 1896 by Karol Adamiecki, who called it a harmonogram. Adamiecki did not publish his chart until 1931, however, and only in Polish, which limited both its adoption and recognition of his authorship. In the 1980s, personal computers allowed for widespread creation of complex and elaborate Gantt charts. Further applications There are many computer applications supporting the use of Gantt charts for employee scheduling. Example In the following example there are seven tasks, labeled A through G. Once this step is complete, one can draw a Gantt chart or a network diagram. See also
