When buying products to check how much you are paying per unified quantity!

  • f.ex.: How much does the Milk cost /liter; or when you see the same type of 'can of beans' where only the quantity and pricing differs: one is 250 grams for 1USD while the other is 400 grams for 1.5 USD; which would you choose?
    a; 1000/250*1 = 4 USD for a kilo
    b; 1000/400*1.5 = 3,75 USD for a kilo

What the 'E' numbers mean.

What is ultra-processed food; why should you avoid it & what to eat instead.

Total daily intake of added sugars and saturated fats should not exceed 5 to 10% of daily consumed calories.
Salt should be consumed in moderate amounts, not exceeding about 2.3 grams per day.

Interviews & stuff to consider before applying a job

The 10 Questions You should ask in a job interview:

About the Job:

-Questions to ask:

  • What are the most immediate projects that need to be addressed?
    Can you show me examples of projects I'd be working on?
    What are the biggest challenges that someone in this position would face?

-What to listen for:

  • Are the projects you'd be assigned the type where you could excel? Very few people aim to be at the bottom.
    Do the projects excite you? If they sound boring, then imagine having to go into the office and do them daily. Walk away.
    Do you have the temperament to tackle the challenges? Some might call for an aggressive extrovert or an organized project manager; Is that you?

About Skills:

-Questions to ask:

  • What are the skills and experiences you're looking for in an ideal candidate?
    What attributes does someone need to have in order to be really successful in this position?
    What types of skills is the team missing that you're looking to fill with a new hire?

-What to listen for:

  • Are my skills and experiences a good fit for this position?
    Could I demonstrate proficiency in these skills, based on my schooling and experience, or do I have cursory knowledge of the topic. If the latter, you will be starting the job in a hole. Initially, only you will know how deep that hole is. You don't want it to be obvious to everyone in the first weeks.

About Opportunities:

-Questions to ask:

  • Are there opportunities for advancement or professional development?
    What to listen for:
    Is there room with this position for me to grow my skills, to advance in the company, and progress towards my career goals?

About Culture:

-Questions to ask:

  • How would you measure my success in this role?
    What do you like most about working for this company?
    What is the typical career path for someone in this role?

-What to listen for:

  • The business world went through a period where they "ranked" individuals against each other on the assumption that there was only so much money to give for pay raises and promotions so give it to the top 10% of employees. This did not work as expected. Students that received A's in college found themselves at the bottom of the ranking. Employees were afraid to take new jobs for fear of their low ranking while they were getting up to speed. And in a strong economy, no pay raise motivates you to look elsewhere, not work harder for a company that does not value your contribution.
    What does it tell you if the hiring manager is not excited about their job or the company you're interviewing? Run, don't walk away.
    Asking about your predecessor's next move should give you an idea of whether the role you're interviewing for will give you the skills and experience to move up in the company.

And two bonus questions:
- Is there anything else that I could provide to help you make your decision?
- What is your timeline for deciding, and when can I expect to hear back from you?
