Comment Re:On this topic - anything like 'Word' with tabs? (Score 1) 95

Ooh - this might actually cover it, thanks! (Saw it in Windows 10 after install, but never opened it.) Would still prefer something like tabs in Google Docs (so can access more easily elsewhere), but I imagine this is cloud-based as well. Thanks again!

Comment On this topic - anything like 'Word' with tabs? (Score 1) 95

This might be useful for the OP as well - in my own life, I run a few social media accounts, and have a long list of prepared Tweets (as an example) for quick reference/posting. It's all in one big Google Doc, but would LOVE to have 'tabs' for several different categories, and be able to flip through those, rather than scroll down several pages in the Doc. Anyone know of anything like this? (Or work on Google Docs and consider adding this as a feature? ;)

So surprised this gets overlooked by so many. Want healthy, long-term productive employees? Make sure their LIVES are good. What happens outside of work will influence work quality much more than anything inside work, especially these cult-like attitudes. And realizing that 'work isn't everything', despite the blow to the CEOs ego, will go a long way to improving the whole system.

Not necessarily, look how quickly we acted on things like acid rain or the ozone and CFC's. And 200 years ago in the US, just the thought of the country not having human slaves was, quite honestly, considered ludicrous and literally impossible to even imagine. Same with other civil liberties like equality for women. Very few people back then were thinking 'oh, this is just around the corner'. It was unfathomable. Impossible. Yet social justice tends to turn things around.

It won't be tomorrow or next week or next year, but it will happen, and it will likely be sooner than we think, imo.

Supplement, singular. B12. Which they recommend EVERYONE over 50 take:

"People over 50 should get most of their vitamin B12 from fortified foods or dietary supplements because, in most cases, their bodies can absorb vitamin B12 from these sources."

I take 2x 1000mcg of B12 once a week. Had my blood tested a couple months ago, I've been vegan over 24yrs and my B12 is on the high end (535pmol/L, healthy range is 150-650.)

If you do your research, you'll find B12 deficiency is actually pretty common in non-vegans too, and many have to supplement even tho they're not vegan.

Try eating "meat alone", I promise you'll regret it after about a week when you have no energy and are completely constipated. They don't 'choose' it, it's their only option much of the year (and they do eat seaweed, some native plants that grow in the warmer. They don't live on ice 365 days a year.)

Plus, you'll need to eat quite differently to adapt - Vitamin C isn't present in cooked animal foods, so you'll need to consume raw liver and brains (or, frozen, as Inuit often do) to prevent scurvy. I'm sure you'll love doing this over taking that B12 supplement. Or are you willing to take Vitamin C daily, but not B12?

Next argument? =)
