Juice Daily For Health


There are many professionals who strongly feel that juicing raw foods such as fruits and vegetables is the way for an improved and healthier lifestyle. Dr Norman Walker’s example of drinking a couple of glasses of freshly extracted vegetable juice daily, also keeping his body junk-free is a fine example of this. Dr Walker lived a very long life with no disease and had enough energy to work right up to the day of his death. He died peacefully in his sleep at 113 years of age.

The late Dr Bircher-Benner, founder of the famous Bircher-Benner clinic which also centres on the power or raw juice also agreed that raw green juice is one of the most therapeutic substances on earth for the human body.

So including a daily juice can truly benefit your health, mind and body. If you want ‘fast food’ let this be the one. The pure fast food of extracted liquids from fruits and vegetables that will really help your body to gain power rather than block it up. This fast food of living nutrients for the body is abundance with antioxidants, life giving enzymes and many vitamins. Why am I calling juicing fast food – it’s easier and quicker than cooking – just wash your fruits and vegetables, cut it up and put it in your juicer – voila – finished! There are even some juicers on the market today where you don’t even have to cut the fruits up, just stuff them down the chute, nothing could be quicker or easier.

Life today is busy, sometimes more than we would like. There are so many demands on people’s live. The rush and daily grind of a million and one things to do. Coping with jobs, families, rushing the children from one activity to another, various chores, no wonder people are feeling worn out, tired and stressed. Dealing with everything that life throws at you and not feeding yourself properly as well will surely takes its toil.  Eventually you will feel completely run down then your body will be weakened for illness to take control.  So please, help yourself by energising your body and juice daily for health.

Mastering Retrospective

When I started with Agile and Scrum back at 2005, I was not much different from any other agile newbie, and I was complaining for having regular retrospective. “What for? We are already sitting together, we are a good team, we tell each other what should be said. It’s waste of time. Formal meeting…” . Later I realized this practice is quite useful and implemented it as one of the key practices. Lately, during past few years of my work as Agile Coach I realized I do retrospective with new agile teams and simply any group of people very often to start communication and build a first cornerstone of agile mindset – openness and trust to each other. I must admit it delivers great results which I never can achieve without Retrospective. During this talk I will share with you my experiences how to become ‘master of retrospectives’ and how to use it in all rank of different situations.

    CMMI for Services: Guidelines for Superior Service (SEI Series in Software Engineering)


    CMMI for Services: Guidelines for Superior Service (SEI Series in Software Engineering)

    Product Description

    CMMI® for Services (CMMI-SVC) is a comprehensive set of guidelines to help organizations establish and improve processes for delivering services. By adapting and extending proven standards and best practices to reflect the unique challenges faced in service industries, CMMI-SVC offers providers a practical and focused framework for achieving higher levels of service quality, controlling costs, improving schedules, and ensuring user satisfaction. A member of the newest CMMI model, CMMI-SVC Version 1.3, reflects changes to the model made for all constellations, including clarifications of high-maturity practices, alignment of the sixteen core process areas, and improvements in the SCAMPI appraisal method.

     

    The indispensable CMMI® for Services, Second Edition, is both an introduction to the CMMI-SVC model and an authoritative reference for it. The contents include the complete model itself, formatted for quick reference. In addition, the book’s authors have refined the model’s introductory chapters; provided marginal notes to clarify the nature of particular process areas and to show why their practices are valuable; and inserted longer sidebars to explain important concepts. Brief essays by people with experience in different application areas further illustrate how the model works in practice and what benefits it offers.

     

    The book is divided into three parts.

     

    Part One begins by thoroughly explaining CMMI-SVC, its concepts, and its use. The authors provide robust information about service concepts, including a discussion of lifecycles in service environments; outline how to start using CMMI-SVC; explore how to achieve process improvements that last; and offer insights into the relationships among process areas.

     

    Part Two describes generic goals and practices, and then details the complete set of twenty-four CMMI-SVC process areas, including specific goals, specific practices, and examples. The process areas are organized alphabetically by acronym and are tabbed for easy reference.

     

    Part Three contains several useful resources, including CMMI-SVC-related references, acronym definitions, a glossary of terms, and an index.

     

    Whether you are new to CMMI models or are already familiar with one or more of them, this book is an essential resource for service providers interested in learning about or implementing process improvement.

        Burn down chart


        Burn down chart

        A burn down chart is a graphical representation of work left to do versus time. The outstanding work (or backlog) is often on the vertical axis, with time along the horizontal. That is, it is a run chart of outstanding work. It is useful for predicting when all of the work will be completed. It is often used in agile software development methodologies such as Scrum. However, burn down charts can be applied to any project containing measurable progress over time.
        Outstanding work can be represented in terms of either time or story points.
