This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 10

Last week post or something from the past.

More movement this week. Daily walking steps have increased from normal average. Most likely due to some extra house cleaning here and there.


Something new this week. I've learning two words on almost daily basis for the past few months. To further reinforce my understanding, I will start writing a small paragraph using all these words. It may sounds forceful but it's quite fun as it will test your creativity and understanding. Yes, the writing and word choice can definitely be improved.
Unusually fat, tall but handsome, nobody will suspect Dr. Lee was a habitant (居住者) of a athletes' village that produces world class gymnast. As the only doctor who specialized in gynecology (妇科) and obstetrics (产科) in that area, his clinic is thriving (兴旺) with patients and business is good. While Dr. Lee still remain unmarried, he is currently cohabit (同居) with his girlfriend, May, for last five years. When they first met, Dr. Lee was muscular, charismatic, exciting, and fun at first. But things have changed all these years. He was grandiose (浮夸的), self-centered, and controlling. Little she was aware or choose to ignore that her future Mr.Right is actually a misogynist (厌恶女人的人). Worse, her future husband does not believe in monogyny (一夫一妻制) but rather polygyny (一夫多妻制). A little birdie have told May that Dr. Lee have already married and have a few kids at his hometown. Yet, she choose to ignore it and treat it as rumour due to jealously.

New T5 LED light installation leads to outbreaks of aquarium algae in a few aquarium tanks. To rectify, the usual water changes, siphon, scrubbing, and turning off the light did help a bit. Our observation and suspicion leads us to believe that it may be caused by infected aquarium plants or fishes (not enough time for quarantine) and non-stop exposure to light.

Meanwhile, I've created and started a Betta fish spawn logs page. It's pointless where your notes were scattered all over the places and it's best to just consolidate all the information into one page.

Over-justification effect. That is what happens when your hobbies or passions become your work. Nothing but discipline to proceed ahead or just to move on to something else.

Best project management practice in 2018?. The discussion on Scrum itself is honestly so true that many organizations are just practicing cargo-cult agile. Also it also depends on the type of project, there are certain systems (health, military, and etc) that cannot be developed in an Agile way. Maybe the WhatsApp approach in the right way as shared by its Engineer? Reading through the The Mythical Man-Month these days again felt like reading a satire.
