How difficult is it to build a back-end rest API with Amazon Web Services?written () ago
I have experience with front-end but not much back-end.
Programming Helpwritten () ago
I need help learning about server-side programming enough to make my first simple web app. I know there are places like Stack Overflow that are supposed to be ideal for programming questions. They are good for very specific questions, but not so friendly for people with general questions or open-ended discussion.
What song do you have stuck in your head?written () ago
I have Tieto Value for Life.
Mindfullness meditation may be helpful also. It is very similar to the advice Orchid gives.
You basically practice being present for a few minutes a day. During this time, you can just sit and focus on your breath. Distractions and anxious "what-if" thoughts about past and future will come into your consciousness. You simply observe them and then return your focus to your breath. That is about it. It is actually really hard to do, so just start with a few minutes per day.
I'm actually not very good at it, but would like to get better. Here is a link:
Dualistic thinking is a product of language. All languages contain terms for black and white. Languages with three terms for color also include red. In english-speaking countries, I think most children learn eleven colors: white, black, red, green, yellow, blue, brown, purple, pink, orange and gray. If they have crayons, maybe they learn about others like turquoise, chartreuse, teal, maroon, lavender, magenta, gold, etc.
If you are talking politics, the reason it is so black and white is because the language is dualistic: left/right, democrat/republican, liberal/conservative. There are others like libertarian or anarchist, but most things focus on the two. Alternative would be a system like the meyers briggs for personality types. There are four separate spectrums so you end up with 16 different personality types. It seems like a lot, but if children are capable of learning 11 colors then adults can handle it. If we had 12 or 16 unique words to describe political leanings then the conversations would be a lot different.- written - voted for by smiley
Do you recommend a certain type? Thanks.- written
I keep hearing about CBD oil. Not sure if it is just a trend or legit. I looked it up once, but there are so many different varieties and forms like gummi and places selling it that I decided to just avoid it.
What is your take on it?- written
I went to the store to get some hand sanitizer and there is nothing. It is insane. If I was smart I would have bought stock in Purell. Or maybe 3M with all of the face masks selling out.
You can make homemade hand sanitizer spray. Half etythl alcohol and half water. I am guessing that vinegar would work too??
Keep your hands clean before touching your face. And avoid confined places with lots of people like mosh pits and airplanes.- written
I have this same problem. As I get older I don't know if my memory is getting worse or what, but I space out and forget where I put things like keys and phone. I even have a spot by the door to hang all the keys.- written
Good idea. I updated my reply to include that.- written
