You mean they will not get paid, will work for free?
Someone has to pay them for their work, isn't it? They, being young(er), will have their own occupations, and need to take time off those occupations to work for this movie, isn't it? (I hope they are not unemployed )
One more thing, what is their motivation to work for free? A dream that their movie will become a grand success at the box office?
One more thing. From that website, I quote: 'Our world is suffering from a devastating absence of poetry.'
Not sure what the basis for this statement is. And what does he mean by 'Our world'. Certainly does not include India.
Take my own language - Kannada. Poetry is being created everyday - look at recent magazines and you'll exquisite poetry. Not to mention the poetry already existing from more than 1000 years. Same with all other languages in India, I feel - there is no dearth of poetic creativity in our country in particular, and the world in general.
Lyrics of all our movie songs are indeed poems; agree that their quality is not as it was earlier. However, we do find beautiful poetic expression in some recent songs too.
Maybe, he has a different connotation for the word 'poetry'.
...Should not be taken lightly. My back has been hurting for over a week now.
I replaced my chair last weekend and it seems to be getting better.
This isn't the first time I've had job related back issues either.
For all of those that think I must be an old geezer, I'm 27.
Let this be a warning to all you young people out there who are just starting their job at the office (or a reminder for those who've worked there for a while)...
Get a good chair and a well adjusted desk.
Unlike your software your body doesn't have a backup!
Alright, you got me... It's actually my strategy to get more work done during the day. As soon as someone enters my office they get this weird look on their face, turn around and make a run for the bathroom. My daily interruptions are at an all time low and my productivity is soaring. I plan to take the car to work one of these days so my boss can enter my office and promote me for my superior productivity
Just because you do plenty of exercise, don't think that compensates completely for sitting 8 hours a day! It does help of course, but you need to get up, take a walk. Work standing some of the time, and sitting at other times. Change things around a bit.
A bad back is pretty minor compared to some of the things you can get by sitting all day... like SO many of us do!
I'm 47, and don't drive. In spite of programming for over 20 years, I've just begun developing back problems in the last 3 or so (due to a fall-related coccyx injury). I put it down to lots of walking, cycling and casual exercise, integrated into daily life.
"If you don't fail at least 90 percent of the time, you're not aiming high enough."
Cycling does very little to work your back muscles, or any of your core muscles at all. Great for the legs and cardio in general, but a more comprehensive workout routine will go much farther in strengthening your core and addressing back problems.
What I mean with the ride in or on. Is I had a vehicle that after the 20 minute drive to work. I could not walk. I thought it was my back. get a new to me used vehicle and suddenly back is fine. Turns out it was the seat in the car that just beat on me. Might have been the suspension, or the seat or something. I never did get it adjusted right.
