Imagine if Martin Scorsese had stopped making his own films 10 or 15 years ago and instead had signed on as Paul Thomas Anderson’s second-unit director. Or say Warren Buffet dropped Berkshire Hathaway to serve exclusively as Mark Zuckerberg’s financial advisor. Think of Kate Upton, tutored in the kitchen by Rachel Ray.

Unfair, right? Overkill. The rich, the gifted and the awesome don’t need to get that much richer, more gifted or awesomer, do they? Yet that is what happened in the NBA when LeBron James enlisted the help of no less than Hakeem Olajuwon as his post-moves coach.

As described in the fine feature story by Mike Berardino of the Sun-Sentinel, the teacher-pupil relationship between arguably the NBA’s most swift and elusive Hall of Fame center ever and its most dominant active player began during the lockout. Stinging from Miami’s loss in the 2011…

Michael Jordan And Kobe Bryant … ‘Anything You Can Do, I Can Do’ (Video)

Sick video everyone should watch

NBA.com | Hang Time Blog

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — In our seemingly never-ending fascination with the Michael JordanKobe Bryant comparison conversation, someone is always trying to make the case for one of these NBA all-time greats over the other.

But it has occurred to us, as it has so many others, how remarkably similar their games are when viewed through a strictly on-court prism. Naturally, MJ came first so Kobe’s game really seems like more of a shadowing of his idol’s game (they say it’s the highest form of flattery … copying someone).

But this fantastic video from 2012 Mamba, we were first alerted to it by our friends at Bleacher Report, highlights the jaw-dropping similarities in the way these two elite artists played (in Jordan’s case) and still play the game. Feel free to continue the debate after seeing this:

Google Cheat Sheet Hints and Explanations

Cheat 1 – Search for an exact word or phrase: Using quotation marks ( the button to the left of “ENTER” ). What this does is that it tells the search engine that you are looking for one thing specifically. How this works is that “google” or other search engine look for webpages which have that statement that you looked up in a variety of websites like Wikipedia, and show the most visited websites at the top and least visited at the bottom.

Hint: Only use when using precise phrase other wise you may be excluding important information.

Cheat2– If one word has two meanings: What you could do is type in the minus key (to the left of the plus key) and type in a word you don’t want to see. eg. (football) – soccer, what this will do is stop all the soccer results from popping up for your football results. What this will do is that it will tell your search engine your don’t want european football (soccer) and only want american football.

Hint: You can also exclude websites using this tactic.

Cheat3 – Search for number ranges: what this does is that it will tell your search engine that you want things in this number range which is helpful for those penny pinchers out their. The way this works is that you put down the lowest price you want to the highest with 2 dots in the middle. eg. car 10,000. .15,000.

Hint: You can also use this to search up dates.

ERGONOMICS

Ergonomics: Ergonomics is the study of how people interact with their work space and it is also the about how efficiently the person works in their work space.

The importance of having a good sitting posture is that it will help your muscles loosen up and it can also help reduce the strain on your eyes by putting you head-level with the computer. This not only helps you be more comfortable it helps your typing get faster and improves your posture in the long run.

No matter how flawless your sitting posture is it can get painful sitting in the same posture for hours at end. So I recommend that you take mini breaks for 5 minutes or so after every 30 minutes of sitting oradjust your posture and seat to get more comfortable for 5 minutes and then switch back to your “flawless posture”.Remember to get out and do something active to be more productive.
