The Science of Happiness

“The Science of Happiness” is the first MOOC to teach the ground-breaking science of positive psychology, which explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life. Students will engage with some of the most provocative and practical lessons from this science, discovering how cutting-edge research can be applied to their own lives. Created by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, the course will zero in on a fundamental finding from positive psychology: that happiness is inextricably linked to having strong social connections and contributing to something bigger than yourself—the greater good. Students will learn about the cross-disciplinary research supporting this view, spanning the fields of psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and beyond.

Top-10 Google Chrome addons for SALESFORCE

I love Salesforce .. have I mentioned that before? Well, it's a big part of my life and this post is dedicated to all of the people who spend their days on SF keyboards and their nights on DreamForce's videos!

Top-10 of best Google chrome addons for Salesforce [MY personal/humble opinion]:

1. Advanced Formula Editor - Enhances the formula editor textareas to have syntax highlighting, tabbing, parenthesis matching, and find and replace. Was recommended on Dreamforces 13-14.

2. Logins - This extension manages your login information and lets you quickly login. 

3. SalesForce Navigator - This extension helps you get to any salesforce page quickly. Just type in what you need to do.

4. SalesForce Admin Checkall - Salesforce Admin Check All is an extension that enhances the Salesforce Setup pages by adding "check all" checkboxes to various checkbox lists. 

5. Profile Comparator for Salesforce - Compare Salesforce user profiles and see all differences in just four clicks.

6. Unofficial Workbench tool - This is the unofficial version of the Salesforce Workbench for Google Chrome.

7. Sales Search - Easy to use search tool for sales reps looking to streamline their constant searching and sourcing. Available search options include: SalesForce, MyStats, LinkedIn, Google, Gmail, Hoovers, Facebook,Google+,Twitter

8. Salesforce Sidebar - The Chrome sidebar is a beautiful, clutter-free way to work with your customer records without opening Brisk gives you the most relevant information at the right time and helps you not forget your leads and opportunities. 

9. Salesforce Id Paster -  If you often migrate record of data into and out of the Salesforce database, then you know that sometimes you need to copy a Salesforce ID from an external program like Excel, and paste it directly onto the end of a Salesforce URL in the Chrome omnibox, in order to visit that IDs web page

10. Sandbox Favicon - Superimposes an "S" on the standard cloud favicon for all sandbox tabs in a Chrome window.UPDATE: also adds a prefix to the tab, e.g.: (na13) Account: ABC Textiles

Disclosure: NONE ... nobody paid me for this  ;-) It's a small payback to this GREAT salesforce community. All these addons, I think they worth it BUT most of all, they have lots of positive reviews [over 4 out of 5]


Open multiple links at once. I use it EVERY day on Salesforce

Salesforce1 Simulator : Click on the device's home button to see options for resizing, minimizing, closing, and toggling whether it should always be on top.Click and drag anywhere other than the screen to move the window.

A giant leap to Diabetes treatment

arvard stem cell researchers announced today that they have made a giant leap forward in the quest to find a truly effective treatment fortype 1 diabetes, a disease that affects an estimated 3 million Americans at a cost of about $15 billion annually.

With human embryonic stem cells as a starting point, the scientists were for the first time able to produce, in the kind of massive quantities needed for cell transplantation and pharmaceutical purposes, human insulin-producing beta cells equivalent in most every way to normally functioning beta cells.
Doug Melton, who led the work, said he hopes to have human transplantation trials using the cells under way within a few years. Twenty-three years ago, when his infant son Sam was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Melton dedicated his career to finding a cure for the disease.
“We are now just one preclinical step away from the finish line,” said Melton, whose daughter Emma also has type 1 diabetes.

What is e-residency and how you can be e-resident !!

Are ready to become a digital resident of Estonia? If yes then this article is for you. 

An e-resident will be a physical person who has received the e-resident’s digital identity (smart ID-card) from the Republic of Estonia. This will not entail full legal residency or citizenship or right of entry to Estonia.
Instead, e-residency gives secure access to Estonia’s digital services and an opportunity to give digital signatures in an electronic environment. Such digital identification and signing is legally fully equal to face-to-face identification and handwritten signatures in the European Union.
The card is not a physical ID-card or even a travel document  because it has no photo on it, but it does have a microchip with security certificates. These enable the card to be used with a small piece of software installed and a reader attached via USB to a computer. It works on two-factor authentication. To get access to a service or sign digitally, you need to enter secure PINs which only you will know.
