Ask HN: What are the signs that you have a great manager?

  • Bad One: Gets pissed off easily when something doesn't work, focuses on himself, doesn't like when people go on leaves while he himself enjoys vacation twice a year, discriminates, uses trickery to get things done, uses his ego in product decision making in case of a technical debate, not at all honestGood one: Rarely looses his cool, may not write code but brilliant with products and product architecture overall, defeats you in technical debates using intelligence rather than his command and ego, is honest & loyal with you and so are you, is a boss but works with you like a teamWhen I started out I remember once I was staying late to the office coz I had some pending work, my manager stayed with me because he had good understanding of the problem and he dropped me off(I used to travel using companies transport) even though he had to take detour.

I tried the new $250 Gravity Blanket, a weighted blanket that's designed to have a cooling effect, and it kept me from overheating at night

  • Weighted blankets work through deep pressure touch simulation therapy (or DPTS) that's similar to the effect achieved by swaddling babies or putting dogs in "thunder jackets." While light touches can alert the nervous system, deep pressure (such as a good massage or tight and heavy blanket) has a relaxing, calming effect on the body.
  • The New Cooling Blanket is worth it if you want to experience the benefits of a weighted blanket but don't want to risk overheating at or having to blast your AC all night.
  • If that doesn't describe you, it's worth looking into some alternatives before giving up the dream of owning a weighted blanket: There are under-$100 options on Amazon — like this $60 version I also own and love — though you'll probably need to throw on the AC in the summer if you plan to use it then (and once you start it's hard to stop, so I'd plan for that).

Here are all the times Joe Biden has been accused of acting inappropriately toward women and girls

  • In recent months, former Vice President Joe Biden has faced scrutiny over his interactions with women, as well as his refusal to apologize for his controversial behavior.
  • Eight women have accused Biden of touching them inappropriately or invading their personal space in ways that made them feel uncomfortable.
  • None of them said Biden's behavior amounted to sexual harassment or assault.
  • The Delaware Democrat was further criticized for repeatedly making light of the allegations, and for commenting on the physical appearance of young girls he's met on the 2020 campaign trail in recent weeks.

Salesforce is applying an incredibly simple data strategy to address the gender gap

  • The San Francisco-based cloud-computing company hands out monthly scorecards to managers of a team of 30 or more, and they must report how many women they hired and promoted that month.
  • Prophet said Salesforce hired 4,000 women in the last year alone.
  • The scorecards, Prophet said, also holds male executives accountable for mentoring and promoting their female employees.
  • After the fallout from the #MeToo Movement, where women reported instances of sexual harassment en masse against powerful men, 60% of male managers feel scared to have one-on-one meetings with their female employees.
  • Many tech companies have come under fire for their treatment of female employees.
  • Two years ago, Salesforce audited every salary at the company to find that men made a total of $3 million more than women in similar positions across the organization.

3 women tried Patagonia's sustainable workout leggings — here are our reviews of everything from fit to function

  • Patagonia might be best known for its sweaters, vests, and outdoor gear, but a recent test of some of its leggings now has us repping the socially and environmentally responsibly brand at the gym, too.
  • After flying under the radar (ours at least), its Centered Tights ($79) and Centered Crops ($69) join our favorite leggings, alongside pairs from fitness-focused brands like Alo Yoga and Under Armour, for their comfort, versatility, and thoughtful construction.
  • When I'm preparing for the day ahead of me and packing my gym bag, I don't want to do the mental work of thinking about what type of workout or class I'm going to do, and then what pair of leggings would go best with it.

The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa review: a beat-em-up with a unique sense of melancholy

  • At first glance, it appears to be a simple, side-scrolling beat-em-up in thrall to River City Ransom, but it blends life-sim elements from games like Persona and Shenmue with punchy combat and excellent, world-weary writing that you wouldn’t expect from a pixel-art tale about delinquent school kids.
  • “More or less all characters are based on my school friends and it’s just the style of dialogue I usually write.” Yeo says the English localization, handled by Dmitry Ostrozhskiy, was a direct translation of the Russian, but since he speaks pretty good English he was able to weigh in with opinions here and there.
  • But its tone is pitched perfectly, lending a real sense of weight and reflection to Ringo Ishikawa as he contemplates his final high school semester with his friends and his future in the world.

How To Transition From Sitting to Standing at Work

  • I stay more awake during the day and my body overall feels stronger and better than it did before.
  • For me, standing while I work has made my body feel a lot better.
  • Now that I stand all day, everything seems to align better and it keeps my gut happy.
  • If you decide you want to try standing for part or all of your work day you first will need a few supplies.
  • Start by standing for an hour a day.
  • Eventually, your body and your standing muscles will grow stronger and standing all day will be no different than when you were sitting all day.
  • I have even been known to stand during some talks because sitting for extended hours now hurts my butt and I tend to get antsy.

Coding my first game with JavaScript: Simon says

  • Of course, I can access the solution right away.
  • But I couldn't make the comparison between arrays to work.
  • After one day stuck in the same problem, I decided to see how Angela had solved it.
  • Feeling a bit defeated, to be honest.
  • But for my surprise, I was in the right way.
  • I could come up with the logic quite easily, even the way I solved how to turn the numbers into colors, sounds, etc.
  • However, when I got stuck in the checkSequence function I felt frustrated, irritated, a bit of rage sometimes...
  • Looking at the solutions felt like a huge defeat to me.
  • Refactoring code isn't right now my priority.
  • But so far, I am focused on making things work.
  • But you really need to see solutions, right?
  • And you can check the code in my Github Repo.

Since season 1, Jessica Jones has struggled to mix horror with superheroes

  • Netflix’s Jessica Jones television series has been particularly fascinated with the line between superheroes and horror.
  • Jessica Jones’ initial season brilliantly exploited the tension between horror tropes and superhero stories by pitting her against a terrifyingly powerful antagonist.
  • Her final confrontation with Kilgrave is a perfect encapsulation of the empowerment / disempowerment dynamic which links horror and superhero narratives.
  • The series has repeatedly questioned whether it’s all right for heroes to kill villains, but there’s no question that Jessica has to kill Kilgrave.
  • After Jessica Jones’ brilliant first season — easily the best single season of any of Netflix’s Marvel shows — showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has struggled with ways of balancing its horror and superhero leanings.
  • Jessica Jones, for her part, often feels like a superhero who’s wandered into a horror narrative.
