Sunday Hit List

Here’s a few links of interest:

1) How To Criticize Without Causing Offense. A handy article with some really good advice. I’ve actually used several of these methods. It can make a critical difference in developing successful business relationships.

2) Popular Mechanic Survival Guide. The magazine has made disaster survival an on-going focus. This link shows a list of their best articles. Always good for a quick reminder, especially during hurricane season.

3) Dark Side of the Rainbow. I had never heard of this. Apparently, certain Pink Floyd fans discovered that the “Dark Side of the Moon” album synchronizes with “The Wizard of Oz” movie. Several of my co-workers verified it (they are a versatile bunch).

4) Coolest Statistics Presentation EVER! Dr. Hans Rosling debunks myths about the Third World & development in a talk that is simultaneously funny, informative and well-paced.

5) Impact Modeler for NEO asteroids. Courtesy of the University of Southampton. Asteroid impacts really are the ultimate natural disaster and models like this one could go a long way to improving our ability to recover from such an impact.
