Idiots in the office are just as hazardous to your health as cigarettes, caffeine or greasy food, an eye-opening new study reveals. In fact, those dopes can kill you!
Stress is one of the top causes of heart attacks — and working with stupid people on a daily basis is one of the deadliest forms of stress, according to researchers at Sweden’s Lindbergh University Medical Center.
The author of the study, Dr. Dagmar Andersson, says her team studied 500 heart attack patients, and were puzzled to find 62 percent had relatively few of the physical risk factors commonly blamed for heart attacks.
For the last few days, bunch of lines kept appearing every now and then in my social network. Usually these kind of flashy lines always annoy me. But surprisingly these lines are not annoying at all, rather they were the reminiscences of my past. I couldn’t resist to share those lines here.
I was BORN in the 80’s.
We are the last generation who learned to play in the street.
We are the first who’ve played video games, and were the last to record songs off the radio on cassettes and we are the pioneers of Walkmans.
We Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, played with the Atari and Nintendo.
We are the generation of the Thunder Cats, Gobots, Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Silver Hawks, Airwolf, Knight Rider.
We raveled in the cars without seat belts or air-bags.
We lived without cell phones.
We did not have 99 television stations, flat screens, surround sound, mp3s, iPods, Facebook, Twitter, computers and the internet …but nevertheless we had a GREAT Time.
Well … I am not talking about my office’s poster, rather these are the poster that I hung earlier in this week on my office room wall. My wall looked very much empty. So empty that I felt somewhat uneasy. Feeling uneasy about a room is not a good thing, specially if the room is your office room, where you spend almost your whole daytime. To diminish the unease and (of course) to beautify my room, I decided to decorate it with some posters.
Seven years ago, on the 20th of October, 2004, Mark Shuttleworth and the warm-hearted Warthogs of the Warty Team announced the first official Ubuntu release – Ubuntu 4.10, code name “Warty Warthog”. That was only the first representative in a line of operating systems that were made by the human beings for the human beings, aiming to let non-tech normal people use Linux.
Happy Birthday Ubuntu!
From that day on, Ubuntu is continuing to gain more popularity, fascinating the computer world steadily and expanding its’ user base each day. Today Ubuntu has more than 12 millions users with a vision of achieving more than 200 millions of users within 2015. Way to go Ubuntu – Good Luck!
I’ve not notice this site earlier. The site contains a huge countdown timer for the latest Ubuntu release (right now it is showing the count down for the upcoming release Oneiric Ocelot aka Ubuntu 11.10). Seems a cool initiative to promote Ubuntu. The site is created by the Ubuntu-Adverts team (I am not sure whether they are an official part of Canonical or not). And the site has cool tag line too –
A whole new world. A whole new computer.
Well … the downside of the site is, there are no clues on what Ubuntu is or what the new release will bring – neither in the body nor in the site title. I hope that with that kind of tag line, the non-Linux users may take notice.
I’ve to confess that I was never fond of KDE. If you ask me ‘why’, then I’ve to tell that may be I’ve started my Linux life with Gnome and it was like ‘love at first sight’! I was introduced with Ubuntu at 2007 and to be frankly, I liked it so much that I never felt to try other distros to give a serious run. I’ve tested Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora – but I’ve not taken them seriously. As a result I became a solely Ubuntu guy. My laptop still runs Ubuntu 10.04 (and I am quite happy with Lucid). This solely Ubuntu-only-background makes me a total newbie in the world of Kubuntu! But why I am using Kubuntu now? Well… after buying the new desktop, I thought to taste Kubuntu instead of Ubuntu, because (in my opinion) unity in Ubuntu is still in its early stage and I do not wanted to install Lucid in my desktop. So I choose Kubuntu Natty Narwhal to give a try. The result? I am an one-month old Kubuntu user! 😀
