Beer To Street Cleaners
Here’s a new twist we
haven’t seen before. In Amsterdam city officials are working
with alcoholics under a special program (devised to keep
them occupied and away from disruptive fighting and
noise-making), wherein they clean streets and city parks. In
exchange for a day’s work, they receive 10 euros (around
US$13), a half-packet of rolling tobacco as well as five
cans of beer — two to start the day, two at lunch and one

How To Keep
valuable commodity in the marketplace is cash. Because it’s liquid
and universally accepted, one can virtually acquire anything the
market has to offer with it. The other side of the coin, however, is
that we can rarely get enough of it to either accomplish all of our
goals or to satisfy all our aspirations.
business owners are increasingly utilizing another form of wealth —
the power of reciprocity. In the years ahead we will continue to see
the growth of barter, as well as the evolvement of a tighter
relationship between the buyer and vendor/supplier. It will be more
reciprocal in nature, not only because it’s good business, but also
competition will demand it.
In other words,
when you make a purchase from someone, shouldn’t they in turn “buy”
from you? If not directly, then indirectly — by having them take
payment in the form of trade dollars, which they can use through
your trade exchange.
in this manner is “win-win” where both parties benefit, rather than
that of a single party benefiting under the typical sales scenario.

Than One Type Of Boredom
Motivation and Emotion says there are five types of boredom,
varying from a calm and pleasant experience to something more like
depression. And boredom is the most common human emotion.
Here’s a quick
look at the five types of boredom:
considered a pleasant form of boredom. It’s like “zoning out” on the
couch in front of a marathon of trashy reality TV shows.
daydreaming. Letting your thoughts wander, or you’re open to new
ideas but don’t feel any motivation to actually get up and do
to the question “why did you do it?” with “because I was bored”?
Then you have probably experienced searching boredom. People who
experience searching boredom are highly motivated to find a more
interesting activity. And it can lead to innocuous behavior like
texting a friend or may even prompt violent or risky actions. It can
also result in highly creative and positive actions.
Trapped in a
boring lecture or a never-ending meeting? When you can’t change your
circumstances — by getting up and leaving — your boredom may be
accompanied by restlessness and aggression, along with the desire to
do something else.
This a very
unpleasant form of boredom, accompanied by a lack of motivation. It
seems to be similar to depression, and it may have more negative
consequences than the aforementioned other types. Apathetic boredom
can be assumed to be detrimental for personal psychological health.
