Yea when a Chinese win a gold medal, we question if they have been drugged. When a British/American win a gold medal, we say "That guy is amazing!". 

When a Chinese athlete trains hard to be the BEST in the entire world, we blame them for training too hard. When a British/American train hard we say "No pain, no gain".

If sports is about competing fairly, this reporter of DailyMail is anything but fair.

If there is ONE thing that world class athletes share together, that would be their tears of defeat, despite all the unimaginable effort they put in.

Ask any Olympic gold medalist, of ANY nationality, if they have trained excruciatingly hard, and if they are both physically and mentally pushed to their limits, and you will start to see how this reporter is painting it black for world class athletes that do not share his own nationality.

‎== RIP Whitney Houston ==
iTunes tripled the prices of Whitney's albums after her death. Here it goes : FUCK YOU APPLE!! FUCKING SCAVENGER!!

What cooperates choose to do when there is a design flaw in one of their products has always amazed me. Asus, admitted the Transformer Prime has a mistake in its design that causes a malfunctioning of the GPS, has officially apologized to its customers, and offered a full refund, and extra 6 months warranty to customers who decided to keep the tablet as is.

Design flaws happen, even among the best. What Asus did was very impressive, it showed their great respect to their customers. I do not own a Transformer Prime, but I will definitely have good faith in them when they release a new tablet.

A good short read
Parable of Time Management

One day, an expert in time management was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those students will never forget. As he stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz" and he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouth mason jar and set it on the table in front of him. He also produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar. When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is this jar full?" Everyone in the class yelled, "Yes." The time management expert replied, "Really?" He reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel. He dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks. He then asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?" By this time the class was on to him. "Probably not," one of them answered. "Good!" he replied. He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand. He started dumping the sand in the jar and it went into all of the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?" "No!" the class shouted. Once again he said, "Good." Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?" One eager beaver raised his hand and said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard you can always fit some more things in it!" "No," the speaker replied, "that's not the point. The truth this illustration teaches us is, "If you don't put the big rocks in first, you'll never get them in at all. What are the 'big rocks' in your life, time with loved ones, your faith, your education, your dreams, a worthy cause, teaching or mentoring others? Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you'll never get them in at all. So, tonight, or in the morning, when you are reflecting on this short story, ask yourself this question, "What are the 'big rocks' in my life?" Then, put those in your jar first.
If this inspired you, share with others so they can benefit!

Nice thought of the day, this quote by Einstein... Me likes it! Related to this: If I find I'm "stuck" with someone (sitting next to them at a dinner, for example) and I can't locate anything of interest in them, I try to ask myself "what are you not seeing?" It's not their fault. It takes two to be boring. I like to think that nobody is boring, just two people interacting might be boring. It's better to enjoy things than to criticize...

Thank my mates +Dmitry Shapiro and +Robert Vogel for sharing this image.

Update: Several people have pointed out this quote is not from Einstein. Personally, I'm not real concerned where it came from. :-) Apologies to Albert's estate if, in fact, this has been falsely attributed to him.
