work advice: when the boss likes one applicant, but you prefer another


reader: i’m in my first management job. i have one direct report and am hiring another, and it’s down to two good candidates. i have not checked references yet, but they’ve been through multiple one-on-one interviews, and their writing test results had pros and cons that balanced out. my direct report and i prefer candidate a; we connected well and were impressed by her interview and strong qualifications. she would also bring much-needed diversity. however, my boss and another co-worker prefer candidate b, an internal candidate who is well liked but less experienced. my boss has said he will support whatever choice i make, but it’s clear he has concerns about candidate a. he thought that her answers to his questions were bad and that she was withholding information. she had prepar...

study: voters facing economic uncertainty prefer a dominant leader


(jim watson/afp/getty images)since the election, analysis after analysis has examined how an inexperienced politician whose divisive rhetoric and autocratic tendencies that flouted democratic norms could become president of the united states. was it racism? the rise of populism? a preference for an authoritarian leadership style? economic unease?a new study in the journal proceedings of the national academy of sciences suggests a link between the last two, finding that when voters are experiencing economic hardship, they tend to choose someone who positions himself as particularly decisive and self-assured. and not only do they prefer leaders with a dominant style, but they prefer it to one who has gained status through “prestige” and experience but who may be seen as less forcefu...

nyc voters prefer de blasio's tax plan to fund mass transit: poll


albany — new york city residents prefer mayor de blasio's plan to raise money for mass transit over gov. cuomo's — but they much prefer the governor to the mayor in a head-to-head matchup. a new quinnipiac poll released friday showed that new york city registered voters by a 64% to 21% margin prefer a millionaire's tax rather than a form of congestion pricing to raise money for mass transit. de blasio has called for the tax hike, something cuomo has shot down. instead, cuomo has pushed the idea of some form of congestion pricing he said would help reduce traffic and raise needed money for the subway and commuter rail systems. city voters support hiking taxes on millionaires by an overwhelming 72% to 37% margin, with the support strong in all five boroughs as well ac...

tweets every introvert knows only too well : thechive

riddle - i live in a quadruple, yet prefer to be a twin - who am i?


piecing together the clues you may be a rook i live in a quadruple, yet prefer to be a twin a rook lives in a square chess board, starts as one of two pieces, and the chess player is usually stronger with two rooks. all i can do is move up and down, and left and right. rooks move vertically or horizontally. you can make me jump, but only once. rooks can perform the special move castling at most once where it 'jumps' over the king. i will watch my sides, if you will watch my corners right. rooks can attack and so are defended up/down and across their four sides, but are defenceless to diagonal corner attacks.






party bot decides who's on the guest list, what music to play


enter party bot: an app that uses ai in real time to make sure any gathering doesn't get gatecrashed, and has the dj well-informed on what to play (which is an improvement on a boring spotify playlist for sure). party bot first needs to know what you look like. peer into an app and move your face around a bit, and it'll then be able to match your name to your face. you can complete your profile by telling it which types of music you prefer, or those that have you leaving the dance floor.once you're behind the velvet rope and the cristal is flowing, you can set up cameras/ipads around the party/club/whatever that will spot revelers in the crowd. knowing who's on the dance floor, and what music they prefer gives even the worst dj a chance to ease up on the taylor swift, and go heavy on t...






spring - why would you prefer java 8 stream api instead of direct hibernate/sql


well, your question should ideally be - is it better to do reduction / filtering operations in the db or fetch all records and do it in java using streams?the answer isn't straightforward and any stats that give a "concrete" answer will not generalize to all cases.the operations you are talking about are better done in the db itself, because that is what dbs are designed for, very fast handling of data. of course usually in case of relational databases, there will be some "book-keeping and locks" being used to ensure that independent transactions don't end up making the data inconsistent, but even with that, dbs do a pretty good job in filtering data, especially large data sets.one case where i would prefer filtering data in java code rather than in db would be if you need to filter ...

trump says vladimir putin may prefer hillary clinton as president


president trump insists that his russian counterpart would be happier if hillary clinton was president, despite his son releasing emails about kremlin efforts to aid him. the commander-in-chief said that his own meeting with vladimir putin was “excellent” but that the leader might prefer the former secretary of state at the helm of america’s military might. “we are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because i'm a big military person. as an example, if hillary had won, our military would be decimated,” the president told pat robertson in an interview to air thursday. “so there are many things that i do that are the exact opposite of what he would want. so what i keep hearing about that he would have rather had trump...

vocabulary - a plausible technical term for 'boiler'


this kind of boiler is also known as a steam generator, and direct translations from relevant words in other languages are mostly "steam generator" or "steam pot". one could take for example the italian expression "generatore di vapore" and adapt to latin. the result, generator/generatrum vaporis, should be easily understood and descriptive. i find the neuter agent noun derivative most suitable here, but some might prefer the masculine.however, i would prefer to start with the verb vaporare, which means just the kind of things a boiler would do: emit steam, glow, heat… therefore my suggestion is vaporatrum. this is admittedly new coinage to the best of my knowledge, but i find the word descriptive, neat, and understandable.






why i still prefer playstation over xbox - from a professional and mature point


goodkylepp|11m ago|opinion piece|9|geekreply: still in the middle of all that rubbish a video game company brought something new to the table, xbox scorpio. however, i still wasn’t sold personally and plan on staying with playstation exclusively. queue the rabid and delirious gamers proclaiming i’m a sony shill and that’s the only reason. let me tell you guys and gals something. gaming is amazing and one of the best art forms around. regardless of where i took my gaming, it literally saved my life and made me the person i am today. (bonus brownie points if you find an old article i wrote on the internet explaining why.) so if you got that kind of support and enjoyment from a nintendo or an xbox, that’s great! i won’t speak down to you because you prefer one system to another. pla...

car buyers aren’t thrilled about semi-autonomous features


overall, the trend for buyers is to be quite positive about the quality and performance of their new vehicle, especially if it's a kia. "autonomous technology" was, in fact, the only category where user complaints increased between 2016 and 2017, although only by a tiny amount.the wall street journal points out that of all the issues consumers raised, 34 percent of them were tied in to adaptive cruise control. if left unchecked, users may prefer to opt for cars with fewer autonomous systems, or prefer to drive with them deactivated.issues with existing smart driving features could also sour the general public's feeling towards our rapidly-approaching autonomous future. it's easy for consumers to think that, if manufacturers can't get lane assistance right, what chance do they have of...

five milk myths busted | huffpost uk


as milk-drinkers everywhere raise a glass this world milk day, i'll explore the most prevalent myths that still persist around the consumption of milk, and try to separate the fact from the fiction: milk makes you fatmilk is a nutritious and natural product which is a recommended part of a healthy diet. also, the wide variety of milk on offer means that everyone can find a milk with the level of fat in it suitable for their diet. whilst bodybuilders or those who are looking to cut down on snacking may prefer whole milk, those wanting to cut down on their fat consumption may prefer fat-free skimmed milk. the important thing is that semi-skimmed, 1% and skimmed milks all contain the same level of water soluble vitamins and minerals and consumers have a wide variety of milk to choose from in.






work advice: this sick leave policy may be worse than the illness


last month (“battle of the benefits: sick leave vs. pto,” march 19), i asked readers to weigh in on consolidated paid time off (pto) plans vs. plans with separate vacation and sick leave. proponents of both systems had some passionate and persuasive views.fans of consolidated pto like the flexibility of being able to use their leave for any purpose without explanation — especially useful when seeking treatment for a condition they’d rather keep private. in particular, child-free workers in good health seem to prefer having the freedom to use their entire leave for vacation, instead of having unused sick hours piling up. by contrast, workers with children or health concerns seem to prefer having sick leave that accumulates separately from vacation leave — especially if the sick le...






dnd 5e - is there a monster that won't boil?


i'm planning an encounter where my players will need to traverse a geyser-fed lake, where the water can range from uncomfortable to boiling, depending on the closeness to the nearest font. i'd like them to have to fight something that lives in these perilous waters (with the constant threat of falling into scalding water), but i am drawing a blank. most of the monsters ociated with heat are more acclimated to fire than boiling water or even highly humid environments.is there any published monster that would fit these criteria (aquatic, but able to resist high heat?i'd prefer something from 5e, but previous editions are acceptable; i can adapt them. further, although ext lanar monsters are ok, i would prefer a "natural" or prime material plane threat.my players are 5 characters of 7-8 level

the surprising male body type women lust after most


a porn website has revealed women’s most lusted-after body types — and six packs are not top of the list.according to pornhub, the male body types most women hankered after are “hairy” and “daddy.”ripped physiques were not what ladies searched for the most, a spokesman for the site told the daily star. many women are partial to watching lesbians and threesomes as well.and it also emerged that penis size really does matter.pornhub said: “women searching for men of a particular type generally will use terms like ‘big d–k’ or ‘black/ebony.’”but while these porn searches reveal a lot about the modern day woman’s desires, it seems ladies may be hardwired to prefer buff guys after all.evolutionary psychologist nigel barber told the daily star: “women prefer men who...

bed bugs evidently love your dirty laundry


bed bugs find your dirty laundry cozy. the creepy crawly critters prefer dirty laundry to clean clothes, researchers at the university of sheffield in england’s department of animal and plant sciences found in a study. it is known that bed bugs travel by latching on to clothes, but the experiment saw that they prefer dirty clothes to clean ones. the scientists put four totes of clothes — two soiled, two clean — in two identical rooms with bed bugs. carbon dioxide was pumped into one room to simulate the co2 humans emit as we breathe. the bugs in the room without the carbon dioxide were twice as likely to hang out in the soiled bag than the clean ones. in the room with the carbon dioxide, the bugs went looking for a human snack.trump international hotel in vegas has b...
