'Clean Sleeping' Is the New Health Trend You Need to Try

ou’ve heard of clean eating. Now try “clean sleeping,” a new philosophy that’s picking up momentum in the health and wellness world, But is clean sleeping as beneficial as it sounds?

What is it? Clean sleeping prioritizes quality rest every single night—at least eight hours, and often up to ten. Instead of staying up late to finish extra work, clean sleeping means putting your need for good rest first and letting everything else wait until morning.


Does it really work? Although getting eight hours of sleep a night is ideal, it’s less about the amount of sleep we’re getting and more about the quality. We all need deep, restorative sleep and enough oxygen in every breath we take while we sleep so that we are truly resting and restoring our bodies. To improve your sleep quality, Gelb recommends opening your airway with a Mute nasal stent and getting fitted for an oral sleep device. Then, just like you committed yourself to Whole30 or going meatless for a month, it’s really about committing to eight hours of sleep every night.

US Family-Based Immigrant Visas - When You Have Your Immigrant Visa - What You Should Know

If you are issued an immigrant visa, the consular officer will give you your passport containing the immigrant visa and a sealed packet containing the documents which you provided. It is important that you do not open the sealed packet. Only the U.S. immigration official should open this packet when you enter the United States. You are required to enter the United States before the expiration date printed on your visa. When traveling, the primary (or principal) applicant must enter the United States before or at the same time as family members holding visas.

USCIS Immigrant Fee - You must pay the USCIS Immigrant Fee to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after you receive your immigrant visa and before you travel to the United States. Only children who enter the United States under the Orphan or Hague adoption programs are exempt from this fee. Select USCIS Immigrant Fee on the USCIS website for more information. Important Notice: USCIS will not issue a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551 or Green Card) until you have paid the fee.

B. Politely ask your boss for a transfer and offer to split the salary increase 50/50 with him.

C. Barge into your bosses office and demand reassignment so that you, "Won't have to work under someone who should have retired before he became a laughingstock."

When your boss throws a party and invites everyone in the office except you, what do you do?

A. Stay home and watch 'I Love Lucy' reruns.

B. Show up at the party anyway, with a really expensive bottle of wine and a briefcase full of small, unmarked bills.

Your boss asks you to play Kooky the Clown for his kid's fifth birthday party, what do you do?

A. Offer to pay for the costume rental and cake, too.

C. Agree to do it, then show up as yourself and tell the children that Kooky is dead.

The boss accuses you of not keeping the office clean; you...

A. Clean the office while he supervises.

B. Tell him that you delegated the job, then fire the underling you supposedly gave the job to.

C. Clean the office again, but this time, you use your boss' face.

Scoring this test

Mostly B's: You're not just going to keep your job, with your complete disregard for other peoples feelings, you'll positively shoot up the ladder of success. Congratulations! You're a real jerk.

Mostly C's: You are a career kamikaze. The boss would have fired you long ago, but he's terrified of what you might do.

Algorithms for coding interviews - recursion vs. iteration

Recursion should be a built-in thought for programmers. It can be demonstrated by a simple example.

Question:
there are n stairs, each time one can climb 1 or 2. How many different ways to climb the stairs?
Step 1: Finding the relationship before n and n-1.
To get n, there are only two ways, one 1-stair from n-1 or 2-stairs from n-2. If f(n) is the number of
ways to climb to n, then f(n) = f(n-1) + f(n-2)
Step 2: Make sure the start condition is correct.
f(0) = 0; f(1) = 1;
The time complexity of the recursive method is exponential to n. There are a lot of redundant
computations.
f(5) f(4) + f(3) f(3) + f(2) + f(2) + f(1) f(2) + f(1) + f(2) + f(2) + f(1)
It should be straightforward to convert the recursion to iteration.
public s t a t i c int f ( int n) {
i f (n <= 2) {
return n ;
}
int f i r s t = 1 , second = 2 ;
int thi rd = 0 ;
for ( int i = 3 ; i <= n ; i ++) {
thi r
= f i r s t + second ;
f i r s t = second ;
second = thi rd ;
second = thi rd ;
}
return thi rd ;
}
For this example, iteration takes less time.

How to fly to Europe for under $70

You can now fly from California to Europe for less than the cost of a night in a mediocre hotel.

On Tuesday, low-cost Icelandic airline WOW launched an airfare sale with one-way fares as low as $69 from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Edinburgh, Stockholm, Bristol and Copenhagen — when you fly from Jan. 15 to April 5. It also launched $99 fares to Reykjavik from Miami, Boston, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.

And these aren’t the only $69 fares that consumers will see: Low-cost airline Norwegian Air told multiple sources that it would launch $69 trans-Atlantic flights when it gets its new fleet of planes, likely this year.

Progress DBA ADMIN - Absolute-path Databases

An absolute-path database is used in most production situations. With an absolute-path
database, extents associated with the database can be stored anywhere on the system. The
control area contains absolute paths to each extent. Absolute-path databases should not be
copied using OS tools; rather, PROBKUP and PROCOPY should be used so that all underlying
files are properly backed up or copied.
