Why Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates both do this mundane chore
They both prefer to wash the dishes. It's what I've always said: I come up with my best ideas when I'm washing the dishes, showering, brushing my teeth or otherwise doing some other soothing, mentally simple activity.

How Memory Works: 10 Things Most People Get Wrong — PsyBlog
Lots of these tips have to do with teaching or learning. For example, in #9, it states:
"But, in the long-run this kind of mix-and-match learning works best.

One explanation for why this works is called the 'reloading hypothesis'. Each time we switch tasks we have to 'reload' the memory. This process of reloading strengthens the learning."

Mirrors next to elevators so people have something to do (check themselves out) while they wait for the elevators. Same thing with with the baggage claim being a 20 minute walk away from the airplane (people who walk 20 minutes instead of wait 20 minutes, report being happier about the experience even though it was more work.) ...which is the same reason doctor's offices (McDoctors, like Summit Medical) schedule you for 3:30pm and call you in from the waiting room at 3:30pm, but leave you waiting in the examination room for another 15-20 minutes.

'Incognito': What's Hiding In The Unconscious Mind : NPR
crime, prison = Starting at 19:30, they talk about reforming the prison system, with the example of the guy who got up on the Texas Tower and killed a bunch of people. In his suicide note, he said he wanted an autopsy done because "I know something inside of me has been changing for the last year or so." A post-event autopsy revealed that he had, for the last year, had a brain tumor growing which was impinging on the part of the brain that deals with fear and agression.

A List Apart: Articles: Burnout
he identified phases, several of which I bet sound familiar, are: * A compulsion to prove oneself * Working harder * Neglecting one’s own needs * Displacement of conflict (the person does not realize the root cause of the distress) * Revision of values (friends, family, hobbies, etc., are dismissed) * Denial of emerging problems (cynicism, aggression, and frustration become apparent) * Withdrawal from social contexts, potential for alcohol or drug abuse * Behavioral changes become more visible to others * Inner emptiness * Depression * Burnout syndrome (including suicidal thoughts and complete mental and physical collapse) [2]

Kreskin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though Kresge makes "predictions," he does not claim to have paranormal or clairvoyant powers, and is annoyed to be lumped with psychics.[2] He teaches classes for law enforcement groups, which "focuses on psychological methods such as jogging lost memories through relaxation techniques or detecting lies through body language and voice inflections."[2]

The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge, Book - Barnes & Noble
The discovery that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains — even into old age — is the most important breakthrough in neuroscience in four centuries. In this revolutionary look at the brain, bestselling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed. Introducing principles we can all use as well as a riveting collection of case histories — stroke patients cured, a woman with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, learning and emotional disorders overcome, IQs raised, and aging brains rejuvenated — The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history" (The New York Times).

Northwest Florida Daily News: Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business
Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business:

"Police made dozens of undercover buys and videotaped many other drug purchases. They also did something unusual: they determined the "influentials" in the dealers' lives -- mothers, grandmothers, mentors -- and cultivated relationships with them. When police felt they had amassed ironclad legal cases, they did something even more striking: they refrained from arresting most of the suspected dealers. "
