Human nature is subject to the five immutable laws, observations show

Human nature may, subject to the same immutable laws as nature as a whole, believes the magazine the New Scientist. To assert this with confidence, not least because not everyone will like the idea of a "handling" in addition to the human will. However, long-term observations and research lead to this conclusion.The article referenced by InoPressa, lists five laws of human nature, manifested itself most.Parkinson's law, formulated in 1955, explains why the work we always have no end: "all work expands to fill all released on time." The author of the law - the civil servant and historian Cyril Northcote Parkinson - substantiated their findings with statistics. Later this idea was confirmed in mathematics.In addition, Parkinson argued that the amount of time spent in the organization to discuss the question, is inversely proportional to its importance, and also figured out that the Commission number of 19.9-22,4 (tenths of a show a partial presence, that is, those who have sat and gone) becomes totally unusable."Student syndrome" - the habit to work only at the last moment before the deadline. Some management specialists recommend not to allocate a lot of time on specific projects, as employees will still delay the start of work to the last.The author of the article, for its part, says it is correct to count the time on the comic Hofstadter's law: "Work always takes more time than you expect, even if you take into account Hofstadter's law".The Pareto principle in a General form is stated as "20% of efforts give 80% of the result, and the remaining 80% effort 20%." This ratio is valid in many areas. So, in most countries 80% of property is owned by 20% of the population, in most systems, 80% of events cause 20% of possible causes.Private companies often use the Pareto principle as fundamental: for example, decide to take on the most important 20% of the work to get 80% of the total remuneration, the article notes.The hypothesis of Bruce Salem says that engineering education is a beneficial ground for the belief that God created the world.

Is a holiday with tears in his eyes.

The moral standing of States can be judged by how it cares for its culture and old menMaria Sveshnikova"ORTHODOXY AND the WORLD", April 26, 2010I somehow immediately drew attention to them. Rather, first noticed her. Of course, seniors in the metro - not uncommon, but for some reason I thought she was not someone who often goes down into the earth. Too clumsy and awkward she was pushing cloudy morning-inhibited and simultaneously aggressive clients of the Moscow metro. The awkwardness was partly due to the fact that her sleeve was kept quite an old man. Apparently the husband. Читать полностью -->
