Nothing specific, mostly code clean up, refactoring and simplification, the performance boost was a surprise. <- This is a good one -[..]12/07/disruptor-v3-faster-hopefully.html

Is there anything we can do about this when designing algorithms and data-structures? Yes there is a lot we can do. If we perform chunks of work on data that is co-located, and we stride around memory in a predictable fashion, then our algorithms can be many times faster. For example rather than using bucket and chain hash tables, like in the JDK, we can employ hash tables using open-addressing with linear-probing. Rather than using linked-lists or trees with single items in each node, we can store an array of many items in each node. -[..]emory-access-patterns-are-important.html

積極思考能夠緩解壓力,這一點毫不令人意外。不過明尼蘇達大學卡爾森管理學院工作及組織學教授、該報告的作者之一格隆布(Theresa Glomb)說,事實證明,積極正面的思考可能比用人單位目前采取的很多抗擊工作壓力的方法都更實用,這些方法包括提供靈活的工作安排或創建新的組織結構圖,而這實際上并沒有改變辦公室的日常生活。

寫下一天中發生的好事本身就很有價值,但格隆布說,真正的影響來自寫下為何這些事會讓你感覺良好。這樣做會凸顯出一個人在工作生活中獲得的資源和支持,比如技能、幽默感、讓你感到鼓舞的家人、或是一個富有同情心的老板。 -
