two-week schedule consisting of 9 hours on Monday through Thursday, plus an 8-hour Friday and a Friday off
This is similar to my work schedule; Tuesdays through Friday have an extra hour added, and I have every other Monday off. There are others whose day is Friday. Either way, such is a WONDERFUL schedule: that extra "rest" day is very recuperative and it gives you a day to schedule all of those activities that MUST be during your normal work hours (doctor, dentist, automotive maintenance, home service personnel, etc.).
I am now working a 34-hour week which counts a full-time or part-time depending upon who you ask.
However, the days are 7, 7, 7, 7 and 6 hours (on Friday)
I have what in Germany is called the "Gleitzeit-Job". My contract is for 35 hours per week and a "valid" work range from 06:00h to 19:00h. Extra hours to be taken as spare time 1:1. I theroetically can do what I want, but...
and I was thinking of seeing if I can change this to four 8.5-hour days
This is something we can't do, at least oficially on regular basis. We could do several weeks in a row like this, changing the free day. But it has to have an end and then be a 5 days week for a while. But I can still do two days early, two days later and one at home, if I would like to.
At the end, I usually work 5 days a week from [6:30, 07:00] to [14:45, 15:30] and get a day / couple of days off from time to time when I want / need them.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I had a 9 x 4 week. Had Fridays off was great. I took two weeks of vacation one day at time, every Monday for July and August and Friday to Monday off, for the summer and I living neat the ocean. I used my vacation budget on front row concert tickets and sine short travel. Was a summer to remember
This track is actually a favorite from last year, but I don't think it ever made it to SOTW.
There was always another track that I liked better in that particular week.
However, a year later, I'm still listening to Dyscarnate.
This week I've been listening to this particular song a lot and I think it finally deserves a spot in the SOTW!
It has a bit of a psychedelic vibe going on, in a technical death metal kind of way.
The video is pretty cool too
Not at all, I can postulate a theory or I can advance it.
First result for "postulate synonym" on Google gives advance as the third option:
suggest or assume the existence, fact, or truth of (something) as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or belief.
"his theory postulated a rotatory movement for hurricanes" synonyms: put forward, suggest, advance, posit, hypothesize, take as a hypothesis, propose, assume, presuppose, suppose, presume, predicate, take for granted, theorize
"such hypotheses have been postulated by highly reputable geologists"
