SharePrint Related Editor’s Note: Martin Pedersen was the focus of a Geocaching.com video, “Geocaching Diet” in mid-2010. He succeeded in losing more than 30 pounds. But Martin will tell you losing 30 pounds still leaves him with a sense that he hasn’t fully succeeded. His weight loss goal was much loftier. The author of the blog FamilyNavigation.com hoped to lose 100 pounds. We still think his geocaching diet was a success. Martin leads a healthier and more active lifestyle today and he’s kept the weight off. Here is Martin’s story, in his own words. Martin Pedersen, pictured here with his family, spent a year on a geocaching diet. Last year my New Year’s Resolution was to get into shape and lose weight. On January 1st I had no idea how I would do it. A fad diet and a gym membership were not going to work for me and two weeks into January I still did not know how I was going to keep my resolution. There had to be a way I could add enjoyable daily exercise into my busy routine. I wanted to pick an activity that I would crave to do each day and was more enjoyable than the passive activities I had been wasting my time with. Still confused I did what I normally do when I have important things to think about; I went for a hike. The combination of nature, fresh air, and exercise always lifts my spirits and allows me to think clearly.Martin geocaching in British Columbia, CanadaI quickly threw the essentials into my backpack which includes water, notebook, pen, and a GPS receiver. The first three items had been part of my hiking pack for as long as I could remember but the GPSr was a new addition. I had been introduced to geocaching a number of months prior and I was slowly getting obsessed. Even though I was going on a hike to come up with ideas, there was no reason why I couldn’t find a few geocaches along the way.My wife was introduced to geocaching from a friend and when she told me about it she knew that it would be something I would really get into. I love to play outside, I am a true explorer at heart, I enjoy challenges, and I like activities I can quantify. Imagine if I could build an exercise routine around hiking and geocaching.On that most enjoyable geocaching hike I did imagine it and as soon as I got back I went to work to figure out if I could possibly fit regular geocaching into my schedule. After an evening worth of research I explained the concept of a geocaching exercise challenge to my wife. The plan was to find 1000 geocaches in one year while hiking 2500kms and trying to lose as much weight as possible, hopefully up to 100lbs. She always amazes me with the enthusiasm she greets my crazy ideas. Three days later I started the Geocache Diet.I have gone hiking almost every day for 11 months and in that time I have found nearly 900 geocaches while walking the equivalent distance to get from Canada to Mexico (taking the scenic route of course). I have hiked through beautiful forests, past waterfalls, alpine lakes and beaches. I have walked back-country roads, urban streets, bicycle paths, plus a fair bit of bushwhacking.Many of the caches I have found had parking right next to them but instead of simply driving from location to location I would always link a few together on a circle walk through town. My family likes caching and they joined me on as many outings as we could manage but a lot of the time I was alone. I have found caches in all types of weather including pouring rain, wind storms, and in the snow. I have not lost as much weight as I would have liked but I have been rewarded with the benefits of regular exercise. This challenge has succeeded in getting me outside to work up a sweat daily where other attempts have failed. The main reason that this challenge worked was that it was just too much fun. Geocaching is such an enjoyable, inexpensive, accessible, and inclusive activity which everyone can do and that makes it a perfect complement to regular exercise.Martin geocaching with his familyThe hardest part of doing any exercise challenge is making the time commitment. Before starting this challenge I looked at my schedule and wrote down everything I needed to do each week (like work, family time, and sleep).I found that, even though I am a busy person, by cutting out activities like watching TV I had enough time to complete this challenge. I did not cut out anything that I enjoyed doing more than hiking and geocaching and I definitely have not cut into family time. My year is almost up but I still have so many trails to hike, so many caches to find, and so many places to discover. I will just have to continue to include geocaching into a healthy lifestyle and to reach my ideal weight and fitness level.Share with your Friends:More Geocaching DietBy: Martin Pedersen

Debate raged over the merits of remote working. Many thought Mayer’s move was uncalled for and archaic, and predicted it would end up backfiring, while other saw her move as a last-resort attempt to re-focus Yahoo after a decade of falling behind its competitors.(See also Forget Trends, Is Yahoo’s Workplace Policy Right For Yahoo?)A Deeper Look: No One’s “Right”Statistics are being offered left and right, and it’s becoming difficult to keep track of what’s “correct.” The fact of the matter is, there’s no one “right” answer. It’s more a process of deciding your own company’s values, priorities and strategy.On average, based on many studies, most people are actually more productive working independently from home. However, further study identifies certain types of workers who may be much more productive working in the office. It’s important to look not only at the average statistics, but also at how the numbers break down. According to a study done by economist E. Glenn Dutcher, summarised in The Wall Street Journal, mechanical and repetitive tasks were performed better in the office, whereas creative tasks had a higher success rate when employees were outside of the office. Marissa Mayer’s Argument: Favoring The OfficeMayer’s stated rationale for stopping remote working at Yahoo was that if everyone is to work as a team, they have to be in the same physical space. It’s clear that there are obvious benefits to a unified working environment – brainstorming with colleagues, random conversations that spark valuable idea, even simple teambuilding and camaraderie. This is what Yahoo management sent to employees: To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side. That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices. Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people, and impromptu team meetings. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together.Yahoo seems to think impromptu team meetings in a shared environment will bring the company closer together, and that the increased social interactions will stimulate new ideas that will benefit the company. That remains to be seen, but over the 8 months that Mayer has been in charge, Yahoo stock has risen 50%, and has continued to rise since the announcement in February. But the new policy doesn’t kick in till June, so it’s too early to measure its true impact.(See also Why Banning Telecommuting Is A Sign Your Company Is Screwed.)The Case For Remote WorkingOver the past few years, many studies have brought to light various benefits of working from home. Let’s look at a few of those benefits.Many studies have shown that remote work leads to happier, more productive employees. Remote employees tend to work longer hours and are on average much healthier, taking fewer sick days (which saves money in variety of ways).A Standford study followed a Chinese travel agency with more than 12,000 employees that experimented by having 200 employees telecommute. The findings showed the telecommuting employees had better working statistics than their office-bound colleagues. They took more calls, worked more hours and needed fewer less sick days. Interestingly, though, only half of these 200 successful telecommuters expressed the desire to continue telecommuting once the experiment concluded, preferring the social interactions of the office. In another study, British telecom giant O2 experimented by instructing 3,000 of its employees to try working from home for a day. More than a third (36%) of them reported being more productive from home. The employees nabbed an extra 1,000 hours of sleep, and 14% said they saw more than their families.In addition, 1,000 hours usually spent commuting was instead spent working, saving 2.2 tons of CO2 emissions (equivalent to about 42,000 miles of diesel-car driving).Remote working can be especially beneficial for young parents, and can be a great way for company’s to burnish an image as an accepting and flexible organization looking to bridge the gender gap. Remote working also makes it easier for employers to shop the global talent pool, and to hire physically disabled workers who might find it difficult to make it into the office every day. What’s best for your company? That depends on the company’s culture, type of work, location and many other factors. But despite Marissa Mayer’s best efforts, it’s clear that remote working remains a growing trend supported by increasingly powerful technology solutions.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… julia gifford
In a shocking incident of mob violence triggered by rumours spread on social media platforms, a 40-year-old beggar woman was hacked to death in Ahmedabad by a mob which mistook her as a member of child-lifting gang. The victim was identified as Shantiben Marwadi, who was declared dead by Ahmedabad civil hospital where she was rushed in after being mercilessly thrashed by a mob in Vadaj area of the city. Three other women beggars were also thrashed by the mob that turned violent as the four women were found begging the city amidst rumours that a gang of women involved in child lifting is roaming around in the city. All the four women came to Ahmedabad for begging from neighbouring Rajasthan. They stayed in hutments in the outskirts of the city. Startled by the incident, Ahmedabad police issued an advisory asking people not to believe in social media messages and videos on child-lifting gang roaming in the city.
