Positive Psychologie - Warum Wohlbefinden wichtig für Leistung ist
Für die Definition von Leistung spielt Wohlbefinden bisher kaum eine Rolle. Die Psychologin Michaela Brohm-Badry plädiert für ein Umdenken: Nur wenn das Wohlbefinden des Menschen berücksichtigt würde, könnten Menschen ihr volles Potenzial entfalten. // wer depressed muede erschoepft und ohne alternative ist - gezwungen zu horchen - weil er am ende kein 100£ aufm konto hat - kann keine revolution anfangen oder an der revolution mitmachen.

Sweden sees benefits of six-hour working day in trial for care workers | World news | The Guardian
Reducing working hours for care workers reduces their sick leave, makes them feel healthier and improves the care they give to their patients – but comes with an appropriate price tag.
In February 2015, nurses at the Svartedalens retirement home switched from an eight-hour to a six-hour working day for the same wage – the first controlled trial of shorter hours in Sweden in about a decade. - https://www.theguardian.com/books/2012/jun/29/how-much-is-enough-skidelsky-review & https://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2013/aug/25/robert-skidelsky-interview-good-life

Robots are coming for your job. That might not be bad news
The problem with automation isn’t technology. The problem is capitalism. // [ Deflationary pressure, 3bn people in developing world and frontier markets unemployed, waiting to join workforce. ] [ who buys the gadgets and widgets when half the world is unemployed ] // This time, as Martin Ford argues in Rise of The Robots, education and upscaling won’t help us. There will simply be fewer jobs to go around, as everything from accountancy to journalism will be done faster, cheaper and more efficiently by machines. The result, as Jerry Kaplan agrees in Humans Need Not Apply, is that billions will be left destitute – unless we radically rethink our way of keeping people fed.

But the study found that the guidelines are largely ignored because most people do not drink every day. Instead they drink heavily at the weekend - in order to get drunk. [ as socially acceptable outlet, from a weeks worth of chronic stress and worry. legal high and stress relieve as is tobacco. ] // thus as food can be used/abused as emotionally compforting and stress-reliever, binge drinking on the weekend as well as the habit for 2-3 drinks during weekdays to relieve the stress, should this behavior be space made in the DSM for disorder!? abuse/coping mechanism!/being dependent on it!? which is socially acceptable!. but long-term harmful to your health, as well as short-term to ur disposable income/savings rate & alcohol related injuries A&E & police force has to deal with!? --- Eating Disorders - bbc.in/1JRg4fu - Gemma and Dr Radha are on hand to talk about eating disorders.

Go tell the boss: let me work less and I’ll produce more | Life and style | The Guardian
The five-day work week is an artificial and outmoded idea. A shorter working week can boost efficiency and an employee’s happiness [...] The latest trend might have more going for it, though: more tech businesses are experimenting with four-day weeks. As Ryan Carson, co-founder of the education startup Treehouse, put it: “You get all day Friday off, instead of pretending like you’re working when you’re not.” [...] The most important reason to work fewer days, of course, is that it’s good for families, friendship, hobbies and the human spirit. But the most interesting implication of the current experiments, backed by some academic research, is that it appears to be good for productivity and work quality, too. Partly that’s because desk-based “knowledge work” relies on plenty of brain rest as well as exertion.

Core Linux tools top list of most at-risk software | InfoWorld
via bit.ly/1Ion6Y5 - For the CII, the Census is a move away from simply sponsoring known-broken projects or those visibly in jeopardy -- OpenSSL, the Network Time Protocol, and GnuPG, the last of which lacked consistent funding as of late. Proactively going after projects that don't yet appear to pose a risk may not seem as heroic, but is a more sensible tactic than waiting for them to fall apart first. (Another CII-supported initiative, The Fuzzing Project, proactively looks for bugs in software via automated testing.)

BBC News - A Point of View: Are we really interested in saving time?
... but what about phytonutrients/phytochemicals and fiber ... see nutritionfacts.org ... as long as no long-term study is done, one should not live off it. [...] !!! It's worth asking how we've become as time-poor as we feel we are today. I'm old enough to remember discussions of 40 or 50 years ago about how we'd fill our days when most kinds of human labour were done by machines. Technology is largely a succession of time-saving devices. It's strange, then, that an age of unprecedented technological advance should also be one of such acute time-poverty. Are we really dreaming of living more slowly? Or could it be that many of us are secretly addicted to the fast life? [... being busy became a status symbol, of being needs and important ... for other peoples life/people depend on us ...] [...] the fact that we're going to die. By being always on the move and never leaving ourselves without distraction, we can avoid such disturbing thoughts.

Do Workplace Wellness Programs Work? Usually Not | Hacker News
"Just give me decent office space, flextime, and a sensible allowance for vacation, (self-directed) training and sabbaticals -- and, if you don't mind, a solid health insurance that doesn't deduct from my salary base in order to cover beyond the bare minimum -- please. That's all I need for "wellness." [...] this article seems to confirm my pet theory that most programs promoting "wellness" are rarely effective because it doesn't involve true intrinsic motivation (it talks about extrinsic carrots and sticks). +++ There needs a cut off time from Work.

However, Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment pointedly declined to include microtransactions in its game, but will have some paid downloadable content starting this month.
