Epoch Converter - Unix Timestamp Converter
The Unix epoch (or Unix time or POSIX time or Unix timestamp) is the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT), not counting leap seconds (in ISO 8601: 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z). Literally speaking the epoch is Unix time 0 (midnight 1/1/1970), but 'epoch' is often used as a synonym for 'Unix time'. Many Unix systems store epoch dates as a signed 32-bit integer, which might cause problems on January 19, 2038 (known as the Year 2038 problem or Y2038).

NYTimes: Read This Story Without Distraction (Can You?)
As much as people would like to believe otherwise, humans have finite neural resources that are depleted every time we switch between tasks, which, especially for those who work online, Ms. Zomorodi said, can happen upward of 400 times a day, according to a 2016 University of California, Irvine study. “That’s why you feel tired at the end of the day,” she said. “You’ve used them all up.”

This is why, according to Ms. McGonigal, the ability to monotask might be most valuable in social situations. “Research shows that just having a phone on the table is sufficiently distracting to reduce empathy and rapport between two people who are in conversation,” she said.

“Practice how you listen to people,” Ms. McGonigal said. “Put down anything that’s in your hands and turn all of your attentional channels to the person who is talking. You should be looking at them, listening to them, and your body should be turned to them. If you want to see a benefit from monotasking, if you want to have any kind of social rapport or influence on someone, that’s the place to start. That’s where you’ll see the biggest payoff.”

Chinese Duck Fried Rice | A Palatable Pastime
This is something I first had when I was a teenager, from the House of Lam restaurant located along Rte, 3 in southern Illinois. Lee Lam made some of the best fried rice ever. It wasn’t difficult to get him to wax poetic about some of his cooking. He told me how home cooking in the U.S. May 01, 2016 at 05:10PM

For Margot Robbie, the Hustle Never Stops
While taking care not to sound ungrateful, she is openly wrestling with what it means to be so visible and whether this was quite what she envisioned doing at this stage of her career.

“It’s always a hustle,” she said. “I thought it would be a mountain, where you get to the top, and then it’s like: ‘Wheeee! It’s so easy after this.’”

Instead, Ms. Robbie said: “Any time I get near the top, I’m like, ‘There’s another mountain!’ The hustle continues.”

SweGGate Facts Glossary Swedish (Juridik)
A word of caution
Reading old legal documents is a very difficult task requiring multiple skills (old handwriting, old language, legal terminology, history, social structure and conditions etc). Most native Swedes will not fully understand the meaning. The language uses numerous special terms and the phrases are compact, often with a meaning "between the lines". A simple "word by word" dictionary type of translation will often not give you the correct meaning of a phrase or a document and sometimes lead you completely off the track. Add to that the difficult handwriting which causes frequent misreading, reduced only by experience and knowledge of the commonly used expressions.
To make sure you get the correct meaning better leave this task to experts - at the very least let an expert proof-read your finished translation.

Printing a big map from OpenStreetMap for cheap | Petty
Excellent instructions for downloading a big raster map from OpenStreetMap:

"Use the Firefox browser. (You can probably duplicate these steps in other browsers, but I’ll leave that up to you)
Install the Easy Screenshot add-on. (There are probably equivalent add-ons for other browsers)
Go to BigMap 2, which is a tool created using the open data from OpenStreetMap.
Click and drag and zoom to find the rough area you want a map of. You don’t have to be exact – go bigger than you need.
Select the map display type using the buttons on the right. This is very cool – as well as the regular types you can have a watercolor effect, cycling map, Russian language map, or (my favorite for the work I’m doing at the moment) the toner and toner-lite versions. Play around and see what you like. Another advantage of the open data model is that people are free to create new display types.
Once you’ve selected the area and the map type, click Submit.
In the new screen, you can see a nice big map.


Using the controls, find the area and zoom level you want. I found that zoom level 13 gives nice street- and building-level detail. As you zoom in, notice that the image grows bigger than the browser window and scroll bars have appeared. Scroll around and enjoy your huge map!
Click hide this to hide the control panel. If you need it back, just click the map.
Using the Easy Screenshot add-on, click Capture Whole Web Page. The add-on has some editing tools, but I just click the save button to save the image to the desktop, or copy to put it on the clipboard.
You now have a huge map image you can print, edit, or otherwise use. Enjoy!
If you want to print it on a presentation board, follow the instructions on the old post here."
