p One in four adults has been diagnosed with a mental illness – but a fifth of people still think "one of the main causes of mental illness is a lack of self-discipline and willpower".A survey conducted by the National Centre of Social Research asked 5,000 adults about their experience of mental health and found that 26 per cent had been diagnosed with a mental illness.A further 18 per cent of adults reported having experienced a mental illness but not having been diagnosed.Women were more likely to have been diagnosed with a common mental health disorder – 31 per cent of women compared to 17 per cent of men.The most common diagnosis was depression, with 19 per cent of people surveyed saying they had been diagnosed with the condition.Other common diagnoses were anxiety, phobias and OCD, with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and eating disorders categorised as "serious conditions".

Photo via YouTube screenshotRacing is inherently dangerous, and that danger presents itself each time a vehicle rolls onto a track.While both cars and motorcycles participated in the board-track era of racing, motorcycles identified with the discipline more—cars had road courses, streets, ovals, board tracks and the like to race on elsewhere, but motorcycle board-track racing was a spectacle that popped up throughout the U.S. soon after it began.That led newspapers to refer to the motordomes as murderdomes beginning midway through the 1920s, when the discipline was already on the decline.Photo credit: Tom Pennington/Stringer/That danger came from all around—the speeds, the track surface, the spectator placing and the lack of brakes in the motorcycles.On one particularly lethal day in 1912, several observers—from four to six, accounts vary—were killed along with Eddie Hasha and another rider at a motordrome in Newark, New Jersey, when Hasha lost control of his bike and slammed into the crowd.As with all things, motorcycle racing evolved from one of its most famous early states to become what it is today.
A house, a car, a retirement plan, heck even your TV are all investments.As personal finance site Mom and Dad Money explains, you don t necessarily have to understand every single detail about an entire industry to be able to buy anything, but understanding how something works on a basic level should be a prerequisite to investing in it.Before you invest in something, make sure whoever s telling you about it can explain it in a way you understand:I don t care how good something sounds.However, in any industry there s probably someone out there hoping to make a quick buck off of someone who isn t looking too closely at the terms of their investment.Taking time to understand what you re investing in isn t just a good discipline, it s protection against being taken advantage of.8 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Investing in Anything Mom and Dad Money via Rockstar Finance
Sure, it s in your best interest as a manager or employer to give your emerging B2B marketers access to all the training they want and need.Send them to conferences, encourage and facilitate learning amongst peers.Curiosity, initiative and a discipline for self-improvement are key attributes for successful professionals in the modern economy, let alone B2B marketing.Perhaps the hardest part about accepting this personal responsibility for self-improvement is making the time for it amidst an increasingly busy, harried schedule.Ever wonder how some people have so much time to read, to learn, to find new best practices and ideas to apply to their work?In the end, what s most important is doing the work and generating results .
That s according to a group of researchers who have investigated the link between people s profile pictures and their personality traits.According to the study, social media users can be grouped into one of the Big Five model personality traits – openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism – based on their profile picture alone.They are also likely to portray a younger image either through the use of a picture from years ago or with them posing with younger people.Users are often seen wearing glasses, but not sunglasses, show less emotion and the ratio of the face size is usually larger than others.ConscientiousnessThe study describes conscientiousness as the personality trait associated with orderliness, planned behaviour and self discipline and for that reason these users prefer the expected behaviour .A picture showing the users face only is therefore most expected and they are more likely to appear as happy, smiling or positive than any other trait.

IBM reckons the rigs assembled to run the likes of Hadoop and Apache Spark are really just supercomputers in disguise, so has tweaked some of its supercomputer management code to handle applications that sprawl across x86 fleets.As explained to The Register by IBM's veep for software-defined infrastructure Bernie Sprang, apps resting on clusters need to optimise workloads across pools of compute and storage resources, and can benefit from templates that make it easier to deploy without dedicated hardware.That second point, Sprang says, is important because he's starting to see cluster creep , a phenomenon whereby different teams inside an organisation each cook up their own compute clusters that could perhaps be shared instead of hoarded.There's also the Spectrum LSF tool for workload scheduling.It does think the Spectrum range is a fine idea for those contemplating cloudy or hybrid cloud analytics rigs, as it will happily span on-premises and public clouds.But that's where the similarities end: this lot is aimed squarely at clustered apps and Big Blue hopes its high-end pedigree will interest those now wrestling with hyperscale workloads.
Before global direct-sale cosmetics company Mary Kay began digitizing its innovation process four years ago, many product launches took the company about three years.Since 2012, however, the company s product-launch time has decreased as much as 30%; Mary Kay has more visibility into how products—now tailored to regional requirements—are doing in each country; and product portfolio decisions are based on data rather than anecdotal information.Some of the obstacles are within organizations themselves—too many ideas, limited resources, cost-cutting initiatives, a lack of information about return on investment or market reception, and a lack of discipline about when to pull the plug on failing ideas.To improve its innovation process and results, Mary Kay implemented Oracle s Agile PLM applications and incorporated the following best practices recommended by Kalypso.Articulate and align on an innovation strategyAs with many technology-aided initiatives, start with the strategy.We found that our customers in Asia, for example, had very different requirements for their skin care than our customers in Latin America or the United States, says Deanna Fell, vice president of engineering and PMO at Mary Kay.
DETROIT -- Despite tumbling U.S. sales and a falling stock price, General Motors CEO Mary Barra says she'll stay the course with a strategy of cutting low-profit sales to rental car companies and keeping resale prices strong.Speaking to reporters before the company's annual shareholders meeting Tuesday, Barra said GM's share of profitable retail sales to individual buyers is rising and trade-in values for cars and trucks remain strong.GM's sales fell 18 percent last month compared with a year ago.Here's how Barra answered questions from reporters, edited for length and clarity: Q: You've stuck to your pricing discipline and cut sales to rental car companies.That has caused your sales to fall.We will also work to continue to deliver superior results.
One of the more interesting aspects of Nest s fall from grace is that the higher ups at Alphabet were none too pleased by the progress, or lack thereof, that Nest was making.DON T MISS: This is what the Galaxy Note 7 will look likeUpon joining Google in early 2014, Tony Fadell and other Nest executives, while wary of joining a large company, were nonetheless excited about the prospects of leveraging Google s resources to further expand the Nest brand across the globe and ramp up development of new products.Whereas a property like YouTube was given a number of years to secure its footing, it soon became clear that Nest would not be afforded the same luxury.Alphabet money is not like Google money, according to several sources at Nest.Whereas Google was content to float the company, under Alphabet Nest was tightly constrained and asked to demonstrate a level of financial discipline at odds with what the founders had expected when they sold to Google.For a five-year-old hardware startup in a still-unproven market, that meant Fadell s role immediately changed — and that Nest s conversations with their corporate parent went from being focused on growth and investment in technology to what one source called effectively finance meetings.
Google parent company Alphabet just held its first shareholders meeting since blowing up its corporate structure last fall and one exec was notably absent: CEO Larry Page.Page has taken the stage to talk to shareholders for the last three years.In fact, since 2010, the only time he's missed a shareholder meeting was in 2012 when a medical condition with his vocal chords sidelined him.But Page wasn't even in the audience on Wednesday.Also absent was cofounder Sergey Brin, who has show up at the stockholder meetings in past years.To answer shareholder questions on topics like Alphabet's Fiber business and its government lobbying, CFO Ruth Porat, executive chairman Eric Schmidt, SVP of corporate development David Drummond, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai gathered at the front.A Google spokesperson declined to say why Page didn't show up.Schmidt's introduction of Pichai speaks volumes though:"To say that Sundar is the best CEO, speaking as the former CEO, would be an understatement," Schmidt said."To watch him navigate the challenges and space, I go, 'Oh my god, we're so fortunate to have Sundar, literally, as the CEO of our favorite part of Alphabet — Google — which is why you're all here." As long as Alphabet's golden child keeps spurting money and Porat maintains an era of fiscal discipline, Page may be able to avoid events like these.NOW WATCH: Bumble founder: Men should stop putting these 4 things in their profilesLoading video...
What do companies believe in, and why do people come to work every day especially in tech , and work so hard to help businesses solve their problem."Jennifer Johnson, VP of Corporate Marketing at RingCentral, the cloud-based business comms platform, was looking back over the twenty years which had taken from a product marketer for middleware, to proprietorship of marketing consultancy 454 Marketing LLC, and most recently--it's been about a year--the RingCentral role.Steadily moving upmarket to target fast-growing customers with global distribution, it needed to establish "more discipline and muscle" in its marketing.Although marketing tech underpins these efforts, Johnson describes it as "an area where we're still needing to build some more infrastructure."The creative team is highly productive "over 665 assets in the last quarter," said Johnson ; Kapost provides workflows for review and sign-off.Glip is a proprietary tool acquired last year which serves as a unified internal communications hub and collaborative environment--not just for conversations but for project management and file sharing.
