You’re lucky if you’re a quiet sleeper. But for people who sleep with people who snore, every night is a long night. Too bad if you’re stuck with one. Same goes for the snorer. You might not want to piss off the person who sleeps with you. A lot of people snore, but it doesn’t mean that it’s okay.

For most downloaded software in a 24-hour period. Hold on to you hats, folks. This will be big. So Mozilla is gunning for this accolade (and yes, it’s a Guinness World Record) and I’ll be more than happy to join the party.
If you want to participate, head over to the download day headquarters and pledge your allegiance. As of this writing, Mozilla might just be able to breach the 500k mark with 362,331 already pledging within only a couple of days of the announcement.
Come on, be part of the world record! And I thought it was illegal downloads for Microsoft products that tops the list. I guess those won’t count. But this will. We will.

Wherever there’s work to do inside the office, you can always depend on teamwork. But teamwork is not something all departments have. It is a value managers try to instill in their team. In your office, how do you promote teamwork so you can maximize your team’s potential?
Emphasize the importance of teamwork when you hold meetings, seminars and even during social functions such as Christmas parties. Mention how teamwork has helped you achieve company milestones during your speech and remarks.
Have an open communication with your team. Make sure that everyone on your team realizes the company’s objectives, policies, and especially the company vision. Only a team who comprehends the company’s goal can hope to achieve it.
The system should promote interdependence. One main reason why employees do not interact with one another is because they don’t have to. If your system calls for various interactions among your staff, it is inevitable that they will function as a team.
Use obstacles to strengthen your team spirit. Interdependence is strong when there are deadlines to beat.
Organize team building activities every year. The importance of having fun outside work is just as important as having fun during office hours. Teambuilding activities such as swimming, mountain climbing, nature tripping, or just eating outside with a few drinks helps improve the working relationship.
Provide training and workshops. Colleagues working their way up a promotion might end up having rifts and issues. Activities such as training, seminars and workshops promote healthy competition.
These tips will without a doubt improve the morale and teamwork of your group, but there is always room to grow as a leader. Consider attending management forums for tips and advice or take it a step further by earning a masters in organizational leadership. Taking these opportunities will only improve your abilities as a leader.
We’ve all felt anger, and everyone will agree that it’s normal to feel angry sometimes. Anger is a very powerful emotion — powerful enough to cause damage in your relationships.

Learn to control your anger so there’s no need to regret anything.
Are you not getting over him at all? Look, everyone agrees that breakups are not one of the easiest things to do, and yet when you say goodbye, you don’t always mean it. And when this happens, the worst is yet to come — sleepless nights, zero appetite, high irritability, loss of focus on other things — all these add up to give you a very serious case of fatigue. If you can’t get over it, then obviously you’re still hung up. Why don’t you just win him back?
You can find a lot of supplements in the market but do you really need it? There are people who say that if a person eats good food, particularly following the food pyramid, then there is no need for vitamin supplements. But then it is also true that supplements enhances your health. In my case, for example, vitamins really rev up my system so that I become more productive after I’ve taken my vitamins. Placebo effect? Perhaps, but I do feel healthy.
