How is this at all relaxing? Worst video on the internet.

I am surprised that you took the perception that an automatic task generally cannot be considered multitasking. This seems like an arbitrary distinction when the line between automated actions and non-automated actions cannot be clearly defined (Anderson, 1982). At what point does a learner driver have full "control" over driving? Take for instance your very own example of driving. We engage in stunningly large array of complex subtasks while driving, simultaneously. On a basic level, our visual system is scanning the environment for potential risks, we engage in higher-level planning and decision making to plan our route, we are physically controlling the car, and of course we might be talking to someone at the same time. By definition, we are multitasking.

Savlucci & Taatgen (2010) argue that as we automate tasks (through expertise for example) we become better at multitasking because we rely less on declarative memory to plan our actions, thereby, our "procedural resource" is not bottlenecked by retrieving knowledge of task instructions (e.g. over time we do no longer need to think about how to change gears). Nonetheless, automated tasks can still be involved in a multitasking situation (or be a multitasking situations themselves).

I understand that making divides between two tasks (e.g. primary and secondary) is pragmatically useful when we are assessing multitasking at a broad level of abstraction; however, to arbitrarily cut out all automated tasks from the multitasking continuum altogether (until a non-automated task is activated) seems like a strong theoretical claim.

Let me know if I am missing something here. Cheers.

Just a tip if you were struggling in the start - you don't need that many staff. Staff are actually quite expensive when you consider the speed of the game. Try and micro manage staff rather than just assigning many. E.g. with your handmen you can assign areas for them to work. With mechanics, don't hire more than 1 until you start actually getting problems which demand it.

Hope this is of help :)

Introduction

It takes so much to be a full human being that there are very few who have the enlightenment  or the courage to pay the price. One has to abandon altogether the search for security and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to embrace the world like a lover. One has to accept pain as a condition of existence. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing. One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but always total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.

Pros: It's a Coles Cons: Slightly undersized isle width, products always seem to left in weird places by costumers (orange juice in meat section; mouldy bread next to canned meats; frozen pizza next to soft drink). All round good blokes.

Great IGA. Friendly staff. Unique products. One of budget IGAs that can compete with woolies on a local level.

Great selection of beers and fairly priced (though not budget). Outside much nicer than inside if you like to communicate with people in any way beyond screaming in their ear. Would recommend for tourists as well.

## Don't takeaway from Woodpeckers, avoid! (1.5/5) ## My partner and I decided to fork out the $45 to get Woodpeckers for takeaway, despite other cheaper options, as it was a special occasion and we had high hopes for a high quality meal. Picking up our order was fine, the staff were very nice and helpful :) But we were utterly disappointed with our purchased meals. We ordered a Gnocchi and a Tortellini, but the takeaway containers it came in contained more tin foil than food! For $45, there was about enough food to serve a small child (< 15 Gnocchi pieces). I'm not even joking, we are very light eaters and ended up just having to laugh at what was given to us as a single serving and marketed as a meal. To avoid claims that I am gourmet naive: I'm always happy to pay reasonably more for a smaller serving of high quality food. If you want to do this though, you need to back it up with quality. For Woodpeckers, the food did not even approach the quality/tastiness required to justify a serving a childs size dish for over $25. The meat sauce in the tortellini did not taste fresh and had an unrefined texture; while the Gnocchi did have a very nice sauce, because it was cooked entirely in the alfoil, we had to scrape out the flavour and some burnt pieces which were not as evenly cooked. If my experience is anything to go by, save yourself the hassle and get some microwave meals from Farmer Jacks, they will be 1/3 of the price, just as good quality and actually have food in them for an adult human. They had some Lasagne on sales for $6.99 last week. Or you know, just find a restaurant that actually does takeaway. I would love to know that this was just a one off mistake from Woodpeckers, but until that day I would not recommend to friends or family. No value, you'll still be hungry afterwrds but be unable to finish off that last bit of pasta on your plate... ### Disclaimer (I understand now that Woodpeckers isn't exactly a take-away restaurant - but they were happy to advertise it as one and take money at first chance so I've provided honest feedback here of my experience. This may not reflect dine in experiences).
