Creativity by Usman Paracha
... But you can replace computer from a computer even better in some respects. Computers can not make the human minds better. Now close your eyes for five minutes and think as written below: You are on a most beautiful hill with grass everywhere and flowers of romantic pink colors spread here and there. You are walking on a concrete path. It starts raining. You are feeling the drops of rain on your head, your face, your whole body. And you are talking with someone you love the most i.e., you ...
I've Turned Into A... by Beverly Mahone
... Besides, what would be exciting about sitting at a computer all day? That, to me, would be the equivalent of a “time-out” or punishment. As children, my friends and I entertained ourselves outdoors with fun “interactive” games like Hide and Seek, Tag, You’re It!, Kick the Can, Double Dutch jump rope, Red Light, Green Light and so on and so forth. Homework was done using brain power. And if you didn’t have it, you worked and worked until you got it.
Office Etiquette for Cleaning Staff by Steve Hanson
... that are in the offices -- including candy sitting at the receptionist desk -- this is client property and is for their employees and customers. It is ok to purchase a soda or snack out of a vending machine, however, as long as it is not being consumed in the offices where you are cleaning. Do NOT make personal calls or other calls from any telephone in the offices. If you use a telephone timekeeping system, there should be a designated phone that is approved for emergency use.
Oh Boy! A New (to me) Toy! by Mike Bryant
... My heart leapt when I saw a Commodore Vic-20 computer sitting on a table. It was in the original box, with original owner’s manual and a programming guide. Also, there was for sale a Commodore tape recorder so programs could be saved to cassette tape. Wow. The owner told me that he wanted $5 for both the computer and the tape recorder. What a deal! I bought it without hesitation. Is this computer useful? Not really. The Vic-20 had only 3.5 KB memory capacity when it was introduced in 1981 ...
Should You Wait On Volume Before Buying A Stock? by Larry Potter
... But today, it's computers. Really bright fellows with slide rules (well, maybe little calculators now) and degrees decide what is the "buy area" and sell area for a basket of stocks, based on all sorts of parameters, some of which you'd never know of. For instance there are programs designed to kick in when the futures get too high. Some kick in based on the amount of foreign currency that the particular bank holds. (why? as the currencies fluctuate, they buy and sell stocks as hedges ...
Buying New Car Blues by Ken Jacobsen
... You sit down in the booth…no calculator…no computers…no TV to pacify the kids…no newspaper…no nothing…and “Gus” begins asking your life story. Name, Rank and Serial Number please. 87 references…. “And no…we will never call them…it's just for the bank” is his reply. He then whips out his “4 square”…you know the one…the one by the end of the battle that has 18 different colors of “Sharpie” on it…telling you that you don't know a thing about automobiles…what they cost…and what you should pay.
At Home In Your Home Office by Akhil Shahani
... Home office owners might find it hard to resist the temptation to use the family computer for their business. Before you do that, think of the risks involved – virus attack caused by an email attachment your sister sent you, “accidental” deletion of your files to make space for your teenage son’s favorite music We don’t know of any client who can see the funny side of data loss! Given that the computer is going to be your business’ lifeline, it’s wise to invest in a good one.
Final Table Tournament Play and Your Poker Calculator by Marty Smith
... Thats one of the reasons I really like using VPIP meter because it will give you a percentage strength on your hand, but more importantly a indication of the aggression at your table. From that information, you may, even being a short stack may want to survive just past the next round of blinds if you figure you can move up a pay scale or two just by sitting and folding. I have done exactly this too, earning an extra thousand dollars in the process. In that game I was happy to blind out!
