The newest entry on my substack called: Stacks of Substance.
I have been thinking a lot about pressure lately. Specifically, how we manage it, persevere through it, and what factors allow us to do that.
I hope you will read and subscribe.
Customer to the team: „we really need to focus on finishing PBIs to get the work done and reach our sprint goal“
Me thinking: what the fuck do you think I do all day long?
Do these people really think that work will get done faster by putting pressure and stress on the dev team?
No, it will definitely not.
But people will be more pissed on the day job and work will result with less quality, because everyone will focus on get shit done as fast as possible and not get it done right. That’s not sustainable (I hate that word, but it’s the most suitable here).
Artificial pressure from people in leading positions is the worst thing you can do to a development team and really drains motivation. If people in a leading position can’t handle pressure and stress, but simply forward it to the dev team then they are not the right person for the job.

The charges were actually dropped on October 10, but it became public yesterday. First of 16 charged in Michigan has flipped; others likely to follow. Feds reserve the right to bring felony charges back if he lies under oath. The others still claim they thought what they were doing was legal, even though they snuck in & met & signed in secret.

The concept for this came from one of my Inktober sketches five years ago 🖋️. Thanks to my daughter Willow for the reference photos, not exactly a comfortable pose to hold 😬😘.

Booster 7 and 9 have several significant differences, starting with the changeover from Raptor 2 to Raptor 2.1, which uses electric #TVC (Thrust Vector Control). A possible reason why #SpaceX has an issue with #methane leakage compared to other #rockets could be the high #pressure that #Raptor operates at in its Methane turbopumps, hot gas manifold, and the Main Combustion Chamber (MCC). One of the most obvious changes to Booster 9 was the addition of a hot stage vent ring on the top that will allow SpaceX to fire 🔥 the ship’s engines while still attached to the booster. https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2023/09/starship-upgrades-upcoming-test-flight/

Without any #nominations, he still #won the night. There’s something to be said for going to an #awardsshow without any #expectations. No #pressure, no need to #perform, no #worries about whether your name is going to be read out loud by a #presenter.
My Dresden colleagues have recently published a paper.
Carlotta Mayer (@c_ma_yer on the cross site) shows that #hepatocytes react to increased #bile #pressure by forming the #apical projections called bulkheads. This is also observed in #human #liver when bile pressure is increased to a pathological level. Upon further increase of bile pressure, bulkheads no longer hold the #canaliculi shape and form #rosettes.

Significant disagreement in Chez Tanner today. I can flex a muscle at the back of my jaw to pop my ears, & use it in planes, Nguaranga gorge etc, to clear pressure differentials.
MrsT says she can "crackle" her ears this way, but it's different to "popping", where she has to hold her nose and blow to clear the pressure. I don't need to do that tho.
Internet says voluntary control of this muscle is very rare, so I don't know if I'm VERY weird?
And just how "optional" is it? Are employees turning up because they'll look bad if everyone else on their team goes and they don't?
A lot of managers are blind to this kind of #silent #pressure on employees. They are completely unaware of the power dynamic between management and employees, and so they misunderstand the #motivations and #behaviours of those employees.

Update: I was happy with the test setup with the hanging water bucket and wanted to try the garden hose next. First thing I found out was that I need an adapter that I don't have.
If the system is going to be connected to the garden hose pressurized by an electric #pump, there needs to be an #adapter that not only reduces the diameter of the hose, but also reduces or regulates the #water pressure. With the elevated tank, the water pressure is given by the elevation, basically the potential energy stored by me hanging the bucket up there 😆, and it's not a lot and very stable. But the electrical water pump is stronger, and the #pressure fluctuates.
I looked around for a second hand adapter, but that's a very specific thing. Maybe if I wait a year or two I will see an offer. But our #holiday is this year, and I still need time to test before that. I searched for alternatives. There's a similar adapter by the competitor brand that I could get, #Gardena, but the hose diameter is different on that one, so I would need an adapter for the adapter.
I grudgingly decided to abandon the #dontBuyAnythingNew principle and ordered the blumat pressure adapter. A week later I got a notification that there will be a long delay in the delivery (aka they don't actually have it, it's just for sale on their online shop 😡), so I cancelled the order and ordered it somewhere else. (I also tried to buy it locally by actually going to a store, but it's not in stock anywhere near me.) It's supposed to arrive tomorrow.
But I learned something in the meantime. I had attached the small irrigation line that goes from the top of the ceramic cone to where you want the water to go
with a large piece of sticky tape to the side of the pot, to make it drip into the water reservoir at the bottom of the pot. After about ten days, it became loose. It started dripping a little bit to the side, then more and more. I re-attached it. Then it got completely loose, and I got to see how fast it can drip when the cone dries! 😆 That's why I want to test these things well in advance. 👍
The pepper plants in the test pot are fine and growing well. They had their first flowers and there will be tiny peppers soon🫑. The system so far does not use nearly as much water as a expected. I only refilled the bucket once.
Seeing the move as driven by "#homophobic #pressure" instead of #national #guidelines, #activists flew an #intersex #inclusive #ProgressPrideFlag on #ShalderHill to "send a message to local #LGBTQ+ #youth."
Put down some thoughts I've been turning over in my mind and heart the last few days, about my mother's death 23 years ago, drowning on a Costa Rican river they shouldn't have been rafting on
Bernie Kerik Pitched Mark Meadows on ‘$5 to $8’ Million Plan To Reverse Trump 2020 Loss
Per an email surfaced in a defamation lawsuit brought against Rudy #Giuliani, #Kerik wrote to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark #Meadows in a Dec. 28, 2020 missive that he would need “between $5 to $8M” to put a plan into action that would #pressure #state #legislators into throwing their electors behind Trump.
A “strategic communications plan” attached to Kerik’s email indicated he would need millions of dollars to work alongside Giuliani to “pressure” state lawmakers into cooperating.
How blood pressure is measured and how do you interpret the reading?
#Diuretic #drugs from the #thiazide group have been used for 60 years to treat high #blood #pressure. But they also increase the risk of developing #diabetes. Researchers at the University of Bern and Inselspital have now pinpointed the cause of this side effect and in the process also gained new insights into the development of diabetes.

**Seasonal Software Updates**
If you struggle to update your app on a regular basis, like every week or fortnight, maybe you can still find rhythm 4 times a year with seasonal updates.
I found it hard to update each of my apps all the time when my focus was needed on 1 project.
Back when I read Acorn 6's beta changelog and it said "Fall 2018", I thought it would be intriguing to make time each season for some kind of update at least.
Lie on me
Walk upon my legs and back
Press fists, elbows, knees
Squeeze and roll me
Like dough, knead me.
Make me a burrito
Wrapped with weight
Engage my claustrophilia
Still my ragged breath
Push my heart out of my eyes.
Press your tawny fur against me
Sit on my feet for head scritching
Stretch beside me foot to hip
Warm, for belly rubs
Gnaw on me.
For if nothing contains me
I will sure burst from inside.
The media (https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2022/11/27/remote-jobs-economy/) indicates pressure is rising. Curious for folks' experiences.
