:: کیفیت رابطه خود را چگونه ارزیابی می‌کنید؟
کم‌شمارند افرادی که از دغدغه رابطه بدور یا فارغ باشند. داشتن یک رابطه عاشقانه مطلوب در کنار پول و شغل مهمترین دغدغه زندگی است. با یک رابطه باکیفیت می‌شود تا حدی غم نان و شغل کم‌پاداش را تاب آورد، اما حتی جیب پر پول و کار مطلوب نمی‌تواند کیفیت زندگی کسی را که در رابطه‌ای بی‌کیفیت گرفتار شده بهتر کنند. اما گاهی آنقدر که خود برقراری رابطه ذهن افراد را اشغال می‌کند به کیفیت رابطه توجه کافی نمی‌شود: اینکه یک زوج چگونه با یکدیگر تعامل می‌کنند، در مواقع اختلاف چه رفتاری نشان می‌دهند و رضایت و شادی خود را از زندگی، چگونه در ارتباط با رابطه‌شان تعریف می‌کنند. پیش از این گفته می‌شد نفس ازدواج باعث سلامت و سعادت فرد می‌شود، اما تحقیقات جدید نشان می‌دهند که صرف رابطه کافی نیست، بلکه رابطه باکیفیت است که بر سلامت و سعادت فرد تاثیر مثبت می‌گذارد. با این حال سوالی که برای همه مطرح می‌شود این است که آیا رابطه خوبی دارند یا نه، با تمام بالا و پایین‌ها و خوب و بدها، معیار کیفیت رابطه چیست؟ اخیرا یک موسسه غیرانتفاعی در بریتانیا که بطور تخصصی در مورد رابطه زوج‌ها کار می‌کند، تحقیقاتی را که در سالهای اخیر در این زمینه انجام شده بررسی و سعی کرده شواهد موجود را در زمینه "کیفیت رابطه" کلیک گردآوری کند. نویسندگان این گزارش می‌نویسند: "کیفیت رابطه جزء اصطلاحات متداول در زندگی روزمره نیست و حتی ممکن است با این اصطلاح چندان آشنا نباشیم، اما کیفیت رابطه اساس زندگی روزمره ماست." با این حال به نظر می‌رسد که "آگاهی از اهمیت یک رابطه خوب رو به افزایش است" و کیفیت رابطه "معیار خوبی است برای سلامت جامعه." کیفیت رابطه و زمان بررسی‌ها نشان می‌دهدکه وقتی رابطه‌ای با کیفیت بالا شروع شود شانس دوام بیشتری دارد و احتمال اینکه در درازمدت رضایت‌بخش باشد بیشتر است؛ اما رابطه‌ای که با کیفیت پایین شروع شود، ممکن است بسرعت رو به فروپاشی برود. بنابراین کیفیت رابطه با دوام و ثبات آن رابطه مستقیم دارد. تحقیقات نشان می‌دهند که بطور کلی کیفیت رابطه به مرور زمان افت می‌کند، اما نکته مهم سرعت و شدت این افت کیفی است. بعضی تحقیقات نشان می‌دهدکه زوال رابطه امری تدریجی است، اما برخی مطالعات دیگر حاکی از این است که بعد از ده سال، رابطه بسرعت کیفیت خود را از دست می‌دهد.از این رو اهمیت اینکه رابطه در شروع کیفیت بالایی داشته بیشتر مشخص می‌شود، رابطه کم‌کیفیت خیلی سریع‌تر فاقد کیفیت می‌شود. تحقیقات نشان‌ می‌دهندکه زوج‌هایی که در چند سال اول رابطه‌ای بسیار با کیفیت دارند یا دچار افت کیفی نمی‌شوند یا این افت شدید نیست. زوج‌هایی که رابطه را با کیفیت بالا شروع می‌کنند شانس بیشتری دارند که کیفیت رابطه را بالا نگه دارند اما در مورد آنها که وارد رابطه بی‌کیفیت می‌شوند، وضع بر عکس است.....

:: تدوام آسیب پذیری وبلاگ‌های وردپرسی؛ ممکن است تمام وبلاگ‌تان از دست برود!
پژوهشگران می‌گویند تداوم آسیب پذیری در افزونه MailPoet وردپرس موجب تحت کنترل گرفتن حدود ٣٠ تا ٥٠ هزار وب‎سایت توسط مهاجمان شده است. پیشتر گزارش داده بودیم که آسیب پذیری کشف شده در MailPoet که یک افزونه محبوب وردپرسی است و بیش از ١.٧ میلیون بار توسط کاربران دانلود شده است به مهاجمان امکان داده است که به انتخاب خود فایل‌هایی را در سرورهای آسیب دیده بارگذاری کنند. در طول سه هفته پس از آن، مهاجمان دایره حملات خود را گسترش دادند و درب پشتی برای نفوذ را در ٣٠ تا ٥٠ هزار وب‌سایت تعبیه کرده و عملا آن‌ها را در کنترل خود گرفتند. نکته نگران کننده این است که برخی از این وب‌سایت‌ها حتی از نرم‌افزارهای وردپرس استفاده نمی‌کردند و یا افزونه MailPoet را در وب‌سایت خود فعال نکرده بودند...

:: مشکل مصرف بالای باتری لپ‌تاپ هنگامی که از مرورگر کروم استفاده می‌کنید
گوگل موفق شده است نسخه اصلاحی مرورگر کروم برای سیستم عامل ویندوز مایکروسافت را که در آن مشکل اتلاف زیاد باتری توسط این مرورگر حل شده است را ارائه کند. مسئله باتری در لپ‌تاپ‌ها قاعدتا بسیار مهم است چون همیشه فرض بر این است که لپ‌تاپ بادید بتواند چند ساعت بدون باتری کار کند. گوگل چندی پیش نسخه اصلاحی از مرورگر گروم ارائه داده بود که به طور چشمگیری از اتلاف وقت در سیستم عامل ویندوز می‌کاست و به نظر خیلی چابک‌تر و سریع‌تر می‌رسید اما مشکل آن بود که این نسخه جدید باتری زیادی از دستگاه مصرف می‌کرد و میزان نامشخصی مگاوات انرژی را بی دلیل هدر می‌داد...

:: جزییات پرونده هشت فعال فیس‌بوکی محکوم به مجموعا ۱۲۷ سال زندان از زبان یک منبع آگاه
یک منبع آگاه از پروندۀ هشت جوان ایرانی که به اتهام فعالیت در شبکۀ اجتماعی فیسبوک به حبس های سنگین محکوم شده اند به کمپین بین المللی حقوق بشر در ایران گفت شعبۀ ۲۸ دادگاه انقلاب به ریاست قاضی مقیسه در اقدامی غیر قانونی، قانون جدید و قانون قدیم مجازات اسلامی را با هم ادغام کرده و در نتیجه حکم هایی تا سه برابر حداکثر آنچه این متهمان باید با آن روبه رو می شدند، صادر کرده است. در حال حاضر پرونده‌های این افراد به شعبۀ ۵۴ دادگاه تجدید نظر فرستاده شده است. منبع آگاه به این پرونده که به دلایل امنیتی نخواست نامش فاش شود به کمپین گفت که قاضی مقیسه و بازپرس پرونده تاکنون با آزادی این هشت نفر با قرار وثیقه موافقت نکرده اند. در حال حاضر شش نفر از این محکومان که مرد هستند در بند ۳۵۰ زندان اوین به سر می برند و یکی از آنها که زن است در بند زنان زندان قرچک ورامین در شرایط بسیار بدی در انتظار قطعی شدن حکم خود است. فقط یکی از زنها به دلیل داشتن دو فرزند کوچک با قرار وثیقه آزاد شده و اکنون در شهر کرمان، محل زندگیش به سر می برد. به گفته این منبع، مسن ترین متهم یک زن ۴۲ ساله و جوان ترین یک پسر ۲۱ ساله است. خبرگزاری ایرنا روز ۲۲ تیرماه در خبری عنوان کرد که هشت جوان فعال در فیسبوک به “اتهامات اجتماع و تبانی علیه امنیت ملی، فعالیت تبلیغی علیه نظام، توهین به مقدسات، توهین به سران قوا و توهین به اشخاص” مجموعا به ۱۲۷ سال حبس محکوم شده اند. در این خبر آمده بود که قرارگاه ثارالله سپاه پاسداران این هشت نفر را مورد تعقیب و شناسایی قرار داده و در نهایت در تیرماه ۱۳۹۲ بازداشت کرده است. پس از آن پروندۀ این افراد در شعبۀ ششم بازپرسی دادسرای شهید مقدس (دادسرای اوین) مورد بررسی قرار گرفته و نهایتا در تاریخ ۲۷ بهمن ماه سال ۱۳۹۲ برای رسیدگی به شعبۀ ۲۸ دادگاه انقلاب ارجاع داده شده است. طبق گفتۀ منبع آگاه، اگر روند قانونی در مورد پروندۀ این متهمان رعایت می شد آنها حتی در صورت اینکه نباید به بیش از هفت سال و نیم حبس محکوم می شدند، در حالیکه این متهمان به ترتیب به ۲۱ سال، ۲۰ سال، ۱۹ سال و ۹۱ روز، ۱۸ سال و ۹۱ روز، ۱۶ سال، ۱۴ سال، ۱۱ سال و ۸ سال حبس محکوم شدند. این منبع آگاه در مورد اتهامات این هشت فعال فیسبوکی به کمپین گفت: «اینها صفحات مختلفی در فیسبوک داشتند. صفحاتی به اسم “عمام”، “ویکی فیس”، “تنهاترین زن”، “زندگی سگی”، “مرجان ماهی”، “تنهاترین مرد”، “راه که بیفتیم ترس مان می ریزد”، “دهۀ پنجاهی ها” و از این دست.» به گفتۀ این منبع یکی از این افراد صفحه ای با نام واقعی خود داشت که در آن شعرهای سرودۀ خودش را منتشر می کرد. این منبع آگاه گفت: «همه آنها به سه اتهام تبلیغ علیه نظام، اجتماع و تبانی علیه امنیت ملی و توهین به مقدسات، و توهین به مسولان دولتی مثل سران سه قوه، احمدی نژاد، جنتی و دیگران محکوم شدند. همگی این اتهامات نیز از مطالب و عکس های منتشر شده در صفحات فیسبوک این افراد استخراج شده است.» این منبع ادامه داد: «بعضی از آنها اتهام “نگهداری سی دی مبتذل” هم دارند. زمانیکه ماموران به خانه های آنها برای دستگیری شان رفته اند، بعضی سی دی های اورژینال از فیلم های هالیوود پیدا کرده اند که بدون سانسور بوده است. همچنین در جایی از اتهامات آنها آمده که تصاویر مبتذل در فضای مجازی منتشر کرده اند، این تصاویر مثلا مربوط به انتشار عکس دختر و پسری است که یکدیگر را در آغوش کشیده اند.» این منبع همچنین گفت:‌ «این افرادی که من دیدم نه تنها هیچکدام فعال سیاسی نیستند بلکه الفبای سیاست را هم نمی دانند. آنها افرادی منزوی و از طبقات مختلف جامعه هستند که صرفا فعالیت هایی در حیطۀ مجازی داشتند. حتی یکی از آنها به اسم واقعیش صفحه داشته که بیشتر شعرهایش را در آن منتشر می کرده است. چطور آخر این شخص می تواند فعال سیاسی باشد و برای براندازی نظام تبانی کرده باشد؟ واقعا با عقل جور در نمی آید.» این منبع در پاسخ به این سوال که چرا برخی از این افراد به چنین مجازات های سنگینی مانند ۲۱ سال حبس محکوم شده اند به کمپین گفت: «متاسفانه قاضی مقیسه قانون جدید و قدیم را در این پرونده با هم اجرا کرده است. یعنی اول طبق قانون جدید حکم داده و بعد بر اساس قانون قدیم حکم ها را جمع بسته است که این اقدام کاملا غیرقانونی است و به همین دلیل برخی از متهمان تا سه برابر حکمی که باید می گرفته اند را گرفتند. ما اکنون فقط امیدوار به قضاوت دادگاه تجدید نظر و شکستن این حکم ها هستیم.» وی افزود: «طبق قانون قدیم مجازات اسلامی، وقتی موارد اتهامی برای متهمی متعدد بود قاضی جرایم آنها را جمع می کرد و جمع مجازاتها میزان مجازات نهایی او در نظر گرفته می شد. اما طبق ماده ۱۳۴ قانون جدید مجازات اسلامی که از اردبیهشت ماه ۱۳۹۲ لازم الاجرا است، اگر جرائم متهمان سه مورد یا بیش از آن باشد، قاضی فقط باید بیشترین مجازاتِ یکی از این اتهامات وارده را صادر کند. هر کدام از این جرم ها هم حداکثر و حداقل دارد. مثلا اتهام اجتماع و تبانی بین ۲ تا ۵ سال است و نهایتا ۷ سال و نیم. قاضی مقیسه در این پرونده اول حداکثر جرم ها را برای هر کدام از اتهامات در نظر گرفته است و بعد طبق قانون قدیم همه آنها را با هم جمع بسته است.» این منبع آگاه گفت:‌ «مجازات اتهام تبانی و اجتماع بین دو تا ۵ سال است و نهایتا با تشخیص قاضی هفت سال و نیم هم متهمی می تواند حبس بگیرد. به فرض اینکه قاضی از تمام اختیاراتش استفاده می کرد، حداکثر مجازات آنها، مجازات اتهام تبانی و اجتماع علیه امنیت ملی، برابر با ۷ سال و نیم حبس می شد.» این هشت متهم ساکن شهرهای مختلف ایران مانند شیراز، یزد، کرمان، آبادان و تهران هستند. با این حال همگی آنها به تهران منتقل شدند و در دادگاه انقلاب تهران برایشان پرونده گشوده شد. به گزارش خبرگزاری ایرنا، پروندۀ این متهمان مجموعا حدود ۱۱ جلد است. خانم مهناز پراکند، وکیل و فعال حقوق بشر، در مورد پرونده های شبکۀ اجتماعی فیسبوک به کمپین گفت: « اولا باید در دادگاه ثابت شود که این افراد واقعا هدفشان اقدام علیه امنیت ملی از طریق فیسبوک بوده، و بعد ثابت شود که اینها با یکدیگر از طریق فیسبوک تبانی کرده اند. در حالیکه اثبات اتهام تبانی فقط از طریق مطالب و عکس های منتشر شده در فیسبوک واقعا کار مشکلی است. همچنین هر متهمی باید در محلی که جرم واقع شده و در آنجا دستگیر شده، محاکمه شود. اگر صفحۀ فیسبوک را در شهر شیراز راه اندازی کرده باید همانجا در دادگاه های شیراز محاکمه شود نه اینکه به تهران منتقل شود و در دادگاه انقلاب تهران محاکمه شود. این عمل صلاحیت دادگاه های شهرهای دیگر را زیر سئوال می برد.» خانم پراکند گفت: «متاسفانه وقتی پرونده ها جنبه سیاسی پیدا می کند دیگر قضات نه از نظر ماهوی و نه از نظر شکلی قانون را رعایت نمی کنند و کلا کاری به قانون ندارند. قاضی که ابزار کارش قانون است به قانون توجهی نمی کند و سیاسی و سلیقه ای برخورد می کند.»

احمد شاملو شاعر، نویسنده، روزنامه‌نگار، پژوهشگر، مترجم، فرهنگ‌ نویس ایرانی و از بنیان‌گذاران و دبیران کانون نویسندگان ایران در پیش و پس از انقلاب بود. شهرت اصلی شاملو به خاطر نوآوری در شعر معاصر فارسی و سرودن گونه‌ای شعر است که با نام شعر سپید یا شعر شاملویی یا شعر منثور شناخته می‌شود. در سال ۱۳۲۵ با نیما یوشیج ملاقات کرد و تحت تأثیر او به شعر نیمایی روی آورد اما برای نخستین بار در شعر «تا شکوفه سرخ یک پیراهن» که در سال ۱۳۲۹ با نام «شعر سفید غفران» منتشر شد وزن را رها کرد و به صورت پیشرو سبک نویی را در شعر معاصر فارسی شکل داد. برای آشنایی بیشتر با این شاعر گرانقدر با ما همراه باشید و این برنامه را از دست ندهید.

(Reuters) - Ford Motor Co's operating earnings for the second quarter beat Wall Street expectations as better-than-expected profit in North America and Europe countered weaker results in Asia Pacific and South America. Ford's Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks said lower costs helped boost the company's pretax profit in North America to a record $2.44 billion (1.43 billion pounds). The company's operating margin in North America improved to 11.6 percent, from 10.6 percent a year ago. The company's outlook for South America was downgraded to a greater loss than previously expected.

Wary about new government, economists trim Indian GDP forecast: poll
By Deepti Govind and Ashrith Rao Doddi BANGALORE (Reuters) - India's economic growth will accelerate this fiscal year but economists in a Reuters poll trimmed their forecasts, tempering their optimism the first majority government in three decades would quickly bring in reforms and spur business investment. While the latest consensus still suggests growth will beat the rate of less than 5 percent seen in the past two years, it does not reflect the stock market euphoria since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's historic election win two months ago. The new mood has helped push the Sensex index of leading shares up nearly 24 percent since the start of the year. "A lot of it at the moment is sentiment," said Daniel Martin, Asia economist at Capital Economics.

How A Regular Employee Helped Put Amazon On The Path To Billions Of Dollars

How A Regular Employee Helped Put Amazon On The Path To Billions Of DollarsYouTube/O’Reilly Benjamin Black. Last year Amazon’s cloud computing business, Amazon Web Services (AWS), brought the company $3.8 billion in revenue. As LinkedIn CEO Reid Hoffman, along with entrepreneurs Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh, illustrate in their new book “The Alliance,” this multibillion-dollar business wasn’t the brainchild of CEO Jeff Bezos or even an executive. It came from Benjamin Black, an employee who had been with the company a little over a year. It was 2003, and Black was recently promoted to website engineering manager. As Black explains in a blog post, he wrote a short paper that outlined a way to restructure Amazon’s infrastructure, and at the end “mentioned the possibility of selling virtual servers as a service.” He writes that he worked on the paper with his boss, vice president of IT infrastructure Chris Pinkham, and that they drew from the ideas they had discussed with their team. “We presented the paper to Bezos (he doesn’t do slides), he liked a lot of it, and we went back to work,” Black writes. Bezos put Pinkham in charge of leading the project that would become AWS, and championed the unorthodox idea. Bezos was “on board from the beginning,” Pinkham’s former employee Christopher Brown previously told Business Insider. “When Amazon’s board questioned whether the company should tackle something so unrelated to online retail,” Hoffman, Casnocha, and Yeh write, “Bezos defended the idea and pushed it through.” AWS launched in 2006 and today, Brown says, “it’s part of Amazon’s culture” and “the way they stay ahead of the competition.” The authors of “The Alliance” think this story is a great case study in good management, since Bezos listened to and recognized a smart idea, no matter whose it was.  Disney missed this opportunity when it fired animator John Lasseter in 1995 for wanting to pursue computer animation. He joined the team that eventually became Pixar and now serves as the studio’s chief creative officer. The authors explain how managers can learn from Bezos’ example: Unlike John Lasseter’s bosses at Disney, Bezos was open to the entrepreneurial contributions of Amazon’s individual employees — even when those ideas were outside what Wall Street (and even his own board of directors) considered the company’s core business. AWS represents precisely the kind of value creation any CEO or shareholder would want from their employees. Want your employees to come up with multibillion-dollar ideas while on the job? You have to attract professionals with the founder mindset and then harness their entrepreneurial impulses for your company. As Intuit CEO Brad Smith told us, “A leader’s job is not to put greatness into people, but rather to recognize that it already exists, and to create the environment where that greatness can emerge and grow.” Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.

Qualcomm struggles to collect royalties in China, stock falls

Visitors walk past the Qualcomm stand at the Mobile World Congress in BarcelonaBy Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc's outlook for the September quarter was below Wall Street's expectations and its shares fell on Wednesday after the leading mobile chipmaker said it was having trouble collecting royalties in China. A new high-speed 4G network in China is driving fresh demand for smartphones with leading-edge technology, but Qualcomm has also faced legal and regulatory problems there, including an ongoing investigation by the country's antitrust regulator. Now Qualcomm is struggling to collect licensing revenue from some device makers in China, including a growing number of local manufacturers the U.S. chipmaker has done little or no business with in the past. "There was some impact in the quarter that we just reported in Q3 and we expect the impact will be larger in the next quarter and potentially for a number of quarters until we can get these things resolved," Qualcomm President Derek Aberle said in an interview.

NY Fed found serious problems at Deutsche Bank's U.S. arms: sources

A man walks past Deutsche Bank offices in LondonBy Katherin Jones and Arno Schuetze FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has found serious problems in Deutsche Bank AG's U.S. operations, including shoddy financial reporting, weak technology and inadequate auditing and oversight, people close to the matter told Reuters. In a letter to the German lender's executives last December, a senior official with the New York Fed described financial reports produced by some of the bank's U.S. divisions as "low quality, inaccurate and unreliable", said one of the sources, who is familiar with the letter. The New York Fed, as the U.S. central bank's eyes and ears on Wall Street, directly supervises the biggest U.S. and foreign banks, partly through embedded regulators who go to work each day inside the firms. "The size and breadth of errors strongly suggest that the firm's entire U.S. regulatory reporting structure requires wide-ranging remedial action," said the letter, first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
