    1. The father bounced silently over the wood flooring in slippered feet toward his son. Fondly, delicately, he placed a pudgy hand on Ichiro's elbow and looked up at his son who was Japanese but who had been big enough for football and tall enough for basketball in high school. He pushed the elbow and Ichiro led the way into the back,

      The imagery used to describe the interaction between Ichiro and his father really paints a picture of the character of the father.

    2. The sharp, lifeless tone of his mother's words flipped through the silence and he knew that she hadn't changed. “The bread must be put out.”

      I think this short passage is very important because it really paints the picture of the type of person Ichiro's mother is. Incredibly powerful passage. "The bread must be put out."

      A lot is said with such few words.

    1. They have made the mistake of believing that you can optimize life. That if they follow the instructions of some study they will find pure bliss. They will finally escape being human.
    2. You overlook the fact you are capable of figuring things out on your own

      This is something we often forget in the age of Google!

    1. Mitosis is a method of cell division in which a cell divides and produces identical copies of itself.
    1. systematic domination of women by men

      "systematic domination of women by men" the beside statement is varies according to person to person, that is the right each one but according to my perspective the idea is wrong because after a long period of time each girl will feel some loneliness. This isolation can be avoided if you have some to care you. No women in the could be independent but they can live independently only a certain period after they miss something in their life. Everyone will leave you but the one who love you will stick with your downs and ups. Your parents will pass you but your husband be with you until something has happen. Below you have five important benefits.

    1. Simply put, your frog is the most important task. It is the thing that moves the needle the most towards your ideal future. It is probably very important, but not very urgent. So our advice (and Brian Tracy’s as well) is to make sure you tackle this MIT at the beginning of your day when you have the most energy and willpower available. Tackling your MIT first thing is extremely important!

      MIT in morning

      max willpower (not decreased cause of decision fatigue during day)

      • max impact on long term goal.. -important but not urgent -procrastinate because (a) big, overwhelm where to start (b) fear of failure - perfection , sense of worth linked
    2. If I were to summarize the book in a single statement, it would be that you should do your most important task (MIT) first thing in the morning.

      eat that frog summary

    1. Compatibility with any process.

      Key point!

    2. Continuous Improvement (Kaizen)It occurred to me rather late that continuous improvement is a risk management strategy.

      Good observation.

    1. people don’t make any difference between planning, estimating and scheduling.

      because they don't understand the differences among these things.

    2. If someone claims that they can effectively schedule the work of a team of knowledge workers more than one week in the future (even this is questionable), slap them in the face and don’t talk to them ever again.
    3. Scheduling work means that we fix the start and end date of each individual task. Scheduling in knowledge work is a waste. Period.

      I couldn't say this more clearly.

    1. o leaving a a longer a trade history on there would be useful is what attracts.
    2. awesome. Maybe like 100 trades back or something because I've run into that same issue on some of the other sites. Even the exchanges themselves, despite being bittrex being such a shitty place to trade, they actually do a good job of leaving, you know, 10 pages of 10 trades each or something on there for you to look. Which is nice because I do find a lot of people or an algorithm will place a really big sell order and an immediate buy right after, at the previous limit. Um, say a sell order for 100 coins and then a one person, one percent of one coin. Or point 01 at the buy order back. So it gets hidden and the candles may show up green. But if you're not looking at the order book, you're going to miss that.
    3. Um, the one thing I did want to see some more of is like under your portfolio, uh, when you're going through the, you know, the rebalancing, the correlation and the optimization, um, would just be some more information about, okay, here's how we did, um, are efficient frontier. Like here's the calculation we used. I know it's one basic calculation, but there are different parameters that people can use in them based on the risk above. So just having more general research on there, just saying, or maybe a link to another page that explains like, here's the calculations that we're using. Here's the portfolio theory, with the correlation index, you know, so setting that up, just showing people some math behind it.
    4. but the order book and the trade history are really important to me.
    5. e benefit. Like I don't have any benefit in blocfolio, like sharing my position size and i know what my position size is, i look at it 10 times a day. I don't see any need for me to put it into blocfolio. I'm mostly concerned with just price data.

    1. Before you implement any data-centric projects, you must know what data you have, where it is located, and how it relates between various systems.

    1. Defenders see it as a harbinger of tolerance and the only ethical and epistemic stance worthy of the open-minded and tolerant. Detractors dismiss it for its alleged incoherence and uncritical intellectual permissiveness.

    1. corporate entity.

      Is incorporation the final transition to the secular?

    2. The objective of teaching young people is not merely incidental to the work of an order, it is indeed the manner in which the order seeks to achieve its object. For a member of the order, teaching was not merely a job it was a religious vocation. There can no doubt that Brother Cosgrove was in the classroom in Sligo between 1969 and 1972 because he was a member of the Marist Order. That was known, understood and accepted by pupils and parents, and when such individuals looked at the various brothers who staffed the school at any given time, they saw, and were intended to see not just a teacher, but a Marist.

      The past

    3. he relationship between members of an order and his or her fellow members and indeed the order itself was much more intense, constant and all pervasive than the relationship between an employer and an employee, or in the old language of the late Victorian cases, a master and his servant. Everything in the organisation of religious orders is directed towards emphasising the collective. The vow of obedience involves subjugation of individual will to that of the superior. The vow of poverty has the effect of making the member dependent upon the order’s collective resources. The vow of celibacy emphasises the focus of the member on relationships with the order and with God.

      collectivity vs individuality

    4. ndeed, to apply tests drawn from the relatively modern world of commerce and industry to religious organisations which have existed for centuries is in my view, to miss the sheer scale and impact of religious institutions on peoples’ daily lives, particularly in the Ireland of the first three-quarters of the 20th century.

      Modernity vs. religion

    5. here is however in my view something slightly absurd in seeking to draw comparisons between the case of religious orders and businesses. Furthermore, the tests and language applicable when considering the case of employment and analogous relationships, such as “enterprise” and “risk” are not easily applicable in the case of religious orders.

      Risk vs religion?

    1. VISITS

      I'm not sure exactly where this would fit in, but some way to reporting total service hours (per week or other time period) would be useful, esp as we start gauging traffic, volume, usage against number of service hours. In our reporting for the Univ of California, we have to report on services hours for all public service points.

      Likewise, it may be helpful to have a standard way to report staffing levels re: coverage of public service points? or in department? or who work on public services?

    1. the response is always, "What is the LGBT community going to do about this?" But the LGBT community doesn't run the schools where queer kids are being bullied, raped, and abused. The LGBT community can't shut down those "houses of worship" where LGBT kids are abused spiritually and their straight peers are given license to abuse them physically. The LGBT community doesn't parent the vast majority of LGBT kids. So the question shouldn't be, "What is the LGBT community going to do about this?", but rather, "What is the straight community going to do about this?"

    1. The whole city reminded Emma of pictures she had seen of Victorian London: old, brown buildings, a lot of carriages riding around, and a lot of friendly people out and about, chattingin the streets.

      Ik heb hier eigenlijk een heel ander beeld bij. Meer met houten huizen en veel vegetatie (vreemd voor een stad). Anders dan de steden die wij kennen.
