Write code that is concise, expressive, and adheres to a single responsibility at a time

Keywords: cleancode, coding

Writing clean code is having empathy for your future self and others as it ultimately makes it easier and quicker for anyone looking at your code to understand and work with it. We spend far more time reading code than I do writing it, so why not make reading code a better experience?

Japanese relies on context

Keywords: Japanese, Culture, Language, Japan, World

In most situations, the subject is implied. Whether it’s to say “you” or any other pronoun, the context should be enough to understand what or who we are talking about.

A creation or literature becomes world famous when it is translated from one language to another, so that it can reach a large number of readers

Have you ever thought, that how it became so popular? Let me tell you, Bhagwat geeta was basically written in Sanskrit language then it was  translated into many languages such as Hindi, English, French, etc. So, that a large community can connect with it. This is the power of translation that it conveys the message of creation to all over the world.

It’s disheartening to talk to someone and while they clearly heard the words, they just didn’t seem to understand what was meant, or if they did, they were not really paying attention and were noticeably disconnected

Keywords: Active Listening, Sharing, attention, hear, listen

When we interact with others and engage in conversation with them, it is important to not only hear them, but to listen to what they are saying rather than just plan what we are going to say next.

Letters to You

In the spirit of ‘open and honest’ communication, a la The Bachelor, I’d like to get into a couple things I struggle with when talking about The Situation (Divorce, Trauma, Abuse, Etc.).

Some of these things genuinely annoy the hell out of me, and some of these things I realize are well-intentioned and possibly just poorly timed.

Let’s start with the Genuinely Annoying:

That’s not abuse that’s abandonment. Do I really need to spell this one out? Abandonment is abuse. Moving on.

I hope you and your husband work things out. I just spent an hour explaining that my relationship was emotionally abusive and that’s what you came up with? Obviously that’s not an option, so thanks but no thanks for your well wishes. It’s creepy and weird and you obviously A) don’t believe me or B) weren’t listening.

Did you pray about it? I know I’ve covered this…

We live in a world that includes conflict and
misunderstanding. Often these
misunderstandings occur with friends.
Frequently, understanding the “intent” behind the misconception
and its “impact” diffuses the
conflict. Resolving the discord requires leaning into discomfort by embracing a
courageous conversation regarding the impact.
Racism and internalized oppression complicate the relationship between
“intent” and “impact.”

In the spring of 1988, as an intern at a Children’s Hospital in a major urban city, I worked 100 hours a week, which included at least two sleepless nights. As the only African American resident in the program, the isolation could be profound. I found solace in the relationships formed with black ancillary and janitorial staff, and many of my Pediatric patients and families.

I met Jennifer, my closest fellow intern, for lunch. As we talked about the patients admitted to the hospital the night before, a comment from Jennifer filtered in from nowhere…

Bing Writes Content

In a job portal, one of the requirements for a content writer reads can write and speak native English.  It would not have caught my attention if the word native wasn’t there.

I got so confused that I had to consult Google.  Google brought me to a website with a query that says ‘Who is considered a native speaker of English?’
