Aristotle was right. People do not need eternal life and absolute happiness    If a person were granted access to an unlimited number of benefits - for example, if he can choose the ideal levels of life expectancy, intelligence, freedom, self-esteem, health, pleasure and happiness - what will he choose, what levels? In psychology, there is  principle of maximization  , when for the ideal case a person chooses the maximum possible sum of parameters that he considers positive. In accordance with this principle, a person will choose the maximum possible levels for each parameter.    
    
 In Howard's work  "Adaptation of the human way of life to the 21st century"  (2000) maximization is described as "the most basic unexplored assumption of human nature". Psychologists assumed that this is something for granted: everyone chooses the most favorable conditions. For example, a person has a fundamental desire to save his life (see  ? the theory of controlling the fear of death of  ? work  ? Solomon et al, 1991  ), Feel independent (    If a person were granted access to an unlimited number of benefits - for example, if he can choose the ideal levels of life expectancy, intelligence, freedom, self-esteem, health, pleasure and happiness - what will he choose, what levels?

"So it was possible": unusual, but effective ways of using "audio" technologies

"So it was possible": unusual, but effective ways of using "audio" technologiesAll technologies have principles of targeted use, including audio technology. But sometimes it works in unusual and unpredictable conditions. So there were already familiar to us echo sounders and ultrasound devices: in these devices, sound helps to perform an allegedly "un-purposeful" function for him - to see what is hidden for the ordinary eye, to navigate in space.
 
 
And now some audio gadgets and "audio" technologies can be used quite differently than we are used to. Today we talk about several cases of unusual - and surprisingly effective - application of audio technology or physical properties ...

Programming for network engineers: working with

Programming for network engineers: working withconfiguration.Even in a good network, in terms of design, from time to time, work is needed to update the configurations of certain entities. Among the most weighty and expected reasons for such activity, we can note migrations for harmonizing the physical and logical planes, the development of the network in the process of technological evolution, the harmonization of the architectures of the segments being joined and the solution of growth problems. In fact, the life cycle of the network, almost always represents a change with a certain level of risk and the impact on the service, in the evaluation of which ...

Audio gadget of special purpose: "warm" lamp recorder and spy watch of the early 50's

This is another pilot post for a new cycle. It is known that many innovations do not immediately fall on the mass free market, and their use for decades can be limited solely to special equipment. This cycle will be about such devices, the history of their creation and use.
 
 
Audio gadget of special purpose: "warm" lamp recorder and spy watch of the early 50's  
 
Perhaps, one of the most legendary, for many years predetermining trends in the development of this type of audio equipment, was a special portable wire recorder Protona Minifon MI-51 of 1951 year. This device was considered the smallest of the series produced in the world from 1951 to 1955. A characteristic feature was the use ...

Change the voice menu of the portable speaker

Greetings dear reader! In this article, I'll try to tell you how I managed to modify the firmware of the portable column, even though I'm not a programmer. Surely for someone the idea will not be new, but when I encounter this task I did not find a quick answer. At the end of the article, I made a video, if anyone is too lazy to read.
 
 
Change the voice menu of the portable speaker to the heap. googling on the subject of the device ID3 tags become clear where the dog is buried where and how you can search for these most mp3 voice menu files.

Blockchain on Go. Part 2: Proof-of-Work

Blockchain on Go. Part 2: Proof-of-WorkHello, Habr! I present to your attention the translation of the article " Building Blockchain in Go. Part 2: Proof-of-Work ".
 
 

Introduction


 
In the previous article we built a very simple data structure, which is the basis for the database blockage. We also made adding blocks with a chain link between them: each block is associated with the previous one. Alas, our implementation of blocking has one significant drawback: adding blocks to the chain is too simple and cheap.
 
 
One of the cornerstones of Bitcoin and blockade is that adding new blocks should be quite a difficult job...[/h]
