The Bling Ring (2013)

It appears that The Bling Ring is the best movie I have seen in about two years.

The great directing and acting - apparently - made me to sit tight and watch to see how the things are going to develop.

The story is based on the article The Suspects Wore Louboutins and true events. Here's is the real people behind it:

There is an interesting review in The New Yorker - Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring".
That's the point of view that some of my friends shared after I approached them to discuss the movie.
However I have seen something else - parents have no idea what their children do and they obviously don't even try to care about them.
Well of course they give them a place to live and supply them with goods and luxurious cars.
However one of the issues is that when parents are getting involved in their offsprings problems it's possibly too late.

By the way, only after I saw the movie and rushed to read reviews and comments, I found who Emma Watson is. Ironically she was the only driver for many people to watch the movie.

In any case the movie and actors are marvelous!

Energy Business Case - Coal Mine in West Virginia

Situation Coal in Africa: An opportunity is available to invest in a coal mine in West Virginia. The mine’s value is less than in past years because of actual and anticipated restrictions on coal-fired power generation in the United States. However, the mine has a chance to sell its coal on contract to a public utility in West Africa. The utility is working through the World Bank for financing to build a number of coal-fired power plants. If they obtain World Bank financing, then a customer for the coal mine is assured, at least for the duration of the contracts. The power plants will employ the best current technology for burning coal, which exceeds all current air quality standards for the region. However, the power plants will not be designed to attempt carbon capture. The area of Africa the plants will serve suffers from extreme energy poverty, with some of the lowest per capita energy consumption in the world.

Mastering The Multitasking

There is usually two distinct perspectives on multi-tasking:

1. Multitasking is counterproductive. We get distracted by multiple tasks that all get our way and fight for our scarce attention, time and resources. This leads to a common fallacy that if you do multiple activities “at a time” you are not doing good work in any of those.

2. Multitasking is a way of getting many things done in a short period of time or in a long run.

Indeed it can be either a disaster or a great helper depending on how it is used and practiced.

Most recent research shows that we don’t do multiple tasks purely in parallel or simultaneously. That means we don’t purely multi-task, but switch between tasks and execute them one at a time, but by spending very small timeframes on each task.

A good example from the history is a story about Julius Caesar capabilities in that area. Plutarch writes, “Caesar disciplined himself so far as to be able to dictate letters from on horseback, and to give directions to two w…
