Most of us don’t have crews and soldiers at our disposal, but many people still find ways to influence their future selves. Some who are particularly prone to the siren song of their pillows in the morning place their alarm clock far from their bed, on the other side of the room, forcing their future self out of bed to shut it off. When MIT graduate student Guri Nanda developed an alarm clock, Clocky , that rolls off a night stand and hides when it goes off, the market beat a path to her door. " Many economists, beginning with Adam Smith, have argued that factories — an important innovation of the Industrial Revolution — blossomed because they allowed workers to specialize and be more productive. Professor Clark argues that work rules truly differentiated the factory. People working at home could start and finish when they wanted, a very appealing sort of flexibility, but it had a major drawback, he said. People ended up doing less work that way. For workers being paid piece rates, this certainly got them up and at work on time. Those operations dictate a certain pace of work. As Professor Clark provocatively puts it: “Workers effectively hired capitalists to make them work harder.
LOVE all your links, off to read some. Re that Clean Reader, it doesn’t just blank swear words but other objectionable words such as breast and replaces them with ‘good words’. So, all female become ‘bottom’ (I do not see their logic) so if a book mentions chicken breasts and the reader has selected the ‘squeaky clean’ setting, chicken breasts become chicken bottoms. Have a a great week. I didn’t know about this Clean Reader debate, though like yourself, I think that people should get what they’re paying for. If you want erotica, get erotica and if you want clean stories, then get clean stories. There’s no need for the involvement of a third party… Btw, I read A Darker Shade Of Magic this week too – it was really good, right. You’re right – if you want clean, buy clean. LOL I hope you’re right, and I hope I’m not flattened by what’s in the tunnel right now. Have a great week. I saw the Clean Reader thing and it’s annoying, I hate when people tell me what I should or shouldn’t do/read/watch. I have a slow week also last week and maybe this week too. I also didn’t get as much done with Bloggiesta as I wanted to but I got enough to get me started and try to finish in the coming weeks. Have a great week Reanna. And like Bea said about the “replacement” word for female parts all being “bottom”.
To help ease you through this painful transition, the Westheights staff have compiled a list of their own techniques for getting up early because we’re hoping to see you all on time this Sunday morning:. (Mimi) For those people who use their phones for an alarm clock, find a more effective “ring tone,” like Pastor Todd’s melodic voice saying, “Wake up, little sleepy head. While I don’t personally use this, my daughter Kiana does and it must work because she doesn’t sleep in. (Mimi) I have an alarm that allows two settings. But in my case, it’s ideal for a seriously non-morning person, who will hit snooze multiple times and finally turn an alarm right off rather than get up. Now I have a back-up. (Charlene) On really early mornings, I put the alarm clock out of reach, so that I have to get up, or at least get all the covers off for the big reach, in order to turn it off. And then of course I get back in bed, and hope I have the discipline to get up when the back-up alarm goes off. Some people put the alarm clock across the room so they have to get out of bed (and get cold) and then they are up for sure. (Todd) My contribution is putting the alarm clock across.
