Rant about Germany office
I was worried about the enforcement of requirement of FFP2 mask before I visit the Bürgeramt (government office). so I bought the 3,95 EUR and wear it to wait for my turn.. in the end, I saw the officer who helped me and a few of them are not even wearing the masks 🥶🤬
(ok maybe they have condition) but anyway why the fxck is EC card as only payment method 💩
Russia’s Nalvany Protests live stream from TV Rain, claiming their sites got attacked and down. and communication suppression at the venues prevented some live coverage.
wondering which new tech can come to counter-attack these bad tactics
Recently I also learned a lot from this NVC method of communication/answering/listening.
“NVC proposes that people should identify shared needs, which are revealed by the thoughts and feelings surrounding these needs, and then they should collaborate to develop strategies and make requests of each other to meet each other's needs.”
1. Jackal language vs. Giraffe language
2. Listen but don’t engage
3. Digging the needs and requested

In my experience as well, I also noticed/experienced these culture clashes at work. For example, imagine there’s no different nationalities, just character: Expressive vs. Unexpressive, and Confrontational vs. Avoidance of Confrontation.
if unexpressive + confrontational might give you relationship and heart problem, then expressive + avoidance of confrontation might give you work and brain problem. It’s impossible to avoid, we better if we learn about it.
Interesting talk from the all hands today, talking about different cultures and at work, from this book https://www.bookdepository.com/Culture-Map-Erin-Meyer/9781610392761
It ended with the note like “you cannot imagine how strong is the culture effect” many were praising the talk after that. (a little context, we have around 100 nationalities in the company)
Friend was asking what’s the difference between shiitake and common mushrooms, just look the same..
“One reason is for their flavor, meaty and buttery fresh, and smoky when dried. They’re low in calories but high in protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, minerals, and dietary fiber.”
Smoky 🥃 😋
so they placed at A1.3 which is about right as I had 3 months A1.1 - A1.2 before this. Happy that I don’t need to repeat 🥳
