Dining and travel website The Daily Meal has released a list of the 101 Best Burgers in America, and the Hamburger Fonfon from Birmingham’s Chez Fonfon ranks number 32.

To make the list of the country’s most bodacious burgers, staff at The Daily Meal focused on small establishments and local favorites, compiling notes from internal expertise, review sites including Yelp, reader suggestions, and coverage from local journalists.

Here’s what The Daily Meal had to say about the Hamburger Fonfon:

“Chez Fonfon might be located in Birmingham, Alabama, but the cuisine will make you feel as if you’ve been transported to Paris, France. The highly recommended Hamburger Fonfon is cooked medium and comes with comté — a cheese — and pommes frites.”

While The Daily Meal ranked multiple burgers from some states for this year’s list– the website ranked three burgers from Georgia and Louisiana, as well as four from South

Software company Haystack wanted to see how it could address burnout amongst its team.

Very few people enjoy meetings, and many will agree that constantly being pulled into huddles and stand-ups just takes valuable time away from actually getting stuff done.

The coronavirus pandemic has added another layer to this issue. While
video-conferencing tools

have created a means for us to stay in touch with our colleagues, organizations are still struggling to find a balance, leading to the rise of a new phenomenon informally dubbed
“Zoom fatigue”

.

Software company Haystack recently found itself experiencing this first-hand. At the beginning of the March, the company appeared to be cruising along smoothly, successfully tackling issues, bugs and launching new features at top speed. However, things began to change quickly in mid-April, when productivity took a nosedive and a pattern of inactivity during the morning hours

Over the last two decades, our lives have been slowly taken over by technology. Take a moment to look around you. How many screens do you see? Did you include the one you’re reading this on?

Our Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets have changed the way we work, play, and even raise our children. Today’s offices would be unrecognizable to workers of the past thanks to the proliferation of emails, video conferencing, tablets, laptop computers, and other relatively recent innovations. Meanwhile, more and more of our personal time is influenced by our gadgets (OK, smartphones) with each passing day.

So have we reached peak-technology? Hardly.

The novelty of constant online connections and instant communication may have begun to wear thin for older generations, but the next wave of Americans have no such qualms. Their tech-dependent lifestyles are already causing huge changes in both the professional and private spheres. The change may be inevitable…unless

Recently in the news, an incident made headlines when a mother sent home an official itemized bill to the family of a child who missed her child’s
party
. Apparently, the family failed to notify the hosts that their
plans had changed and their son would be missing the party. Granted, there was
a lot of miscommunication involved, which spurred this party blunder to go
viral. It now is a blame game and neither group is without fault.

This case goes beyond party etiquette, it raises the important
topic about ways technology can help us in our daily lives.

Technology And It’s Benefits

Technology sometimes has a bad reputation

Programming in Daily Life

May 2, 2020 | programming | No Comments

“The best method for accelerating a computer is the one that boosts it by 9.8 m/s^2.”

Philosopher Nick Bostrom, director of the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University in his ‘Simulation Argument’ stated “Humanity is literally living in a computer simulation. Instead of having brains in vats that are fed by sensory inputs from a simulator, the brains themselves would also be part of the simulation. It would be one big computer program simulating everything, including human brains down to neurons and synapses.”(Kuhn, n.d.)

A few of the instances of Programming in daily life are listed below..

Class and Object, the most important features of Object Oriented Programming, as we all know, plays a vital role. According to a programmer, Class is nothing but a blueprint of an Object and an Object is a real world entity that has inherent meaning with certain characteristics and behavior.
