You’ve probably heard of augmented reality, but what is it? Augmented reality is a technology that creates a digital overlay on top of the real world. Devices that support augmented reality can display information about objects in your environment, show interactive elements (like games or Ultraviolet outreach tools), or help you find items you’ve lost. For businesses, augmented reality can be used to improve customer service by displaying how repairs might look before they happen, or by providing advice on where
There’s something oddly beautiful about unrequited love. It’s messy, it’s raw, and it feels like there is infinite potential for growth and understanding. It also has a certain unreality to it that makes it all the more memorable.

The most successful remote teams are able to create a sense of coordination and community by establishing clear expectations and communicating frequently. They also establish ground rules for working together, such as how frequently team members will communicate, what tasks are considered completed, and how disputes will be resolved. This structure helps to ensure that team members are productive and aligned with one another, while also giving them the freedom to work when and how they want.

This can help foster engagement and improve communication between team members. Additionally, reducing the number of meetings that take place can be a huge benefit because it saves time and resources.

Our everyday lives would be much less predictable and comfortable if it weren’t for our unwritten agreements

European and U.S. police organizations have arrested suspected members of the DoppelPaymer ransomware gang, which has targeted at least 601 companies worldwide with one of its most serious attacks targeting the University Hospital in Düsseldorf that resulted in the death of a patient.
