Here’s something that’s obvious, but at the same time not: We’re all a lot more than we appear to be at work.

We have other dimensions that are invisible to our companies, supervisors, direct reports, and most of our colleagues, and those invisible dimensions have a deep impact on our work.

A couple of pieces of research got me thinking about this. One is a diary study of dual-earner couples showing that people put more time in at work when their intimate relationships are going well, because the absence of drama at home gives them greater emotional, cognitive, and physical vigor to bring to the workplace.

Barcelona’s soccer team today hosted a match in its legendary stadium, Camp Nou, where the club regularly plays in front of 98,000. Barcelona has won La Liga 22 times and the European Cup four times. Its opponents were much less renowned, though, in their own way, no less remarkable.

The club from Eibar, a small town in the Basque country, is playing in Spain’s top division for the first time ever. Last year, its budget was €3.2 million ($4.1 million), which wouldn’t cover the annual salary of Lionel Messi, Barcelona’s star player. The team’s stadium holds 5,200 and average attendance last year was 2,900—which makes Eibar the smallest team ever in the history of La Liga.

For example, in England, you have to go

Despite weak health spending growth worldwide, a number of countries still had substantial health care budgets as of 2012. Based on data released by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the U.S. led the developed world in 2012, spending $8,745 per capita on health care. Turkey, by contrast, spent just $984 per capita, the lowest among developed countries. 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the countries spending the most on health care per person in 2012.

According to the report, “Higher health sector prices explain much of the difference between the U.S. and other high-spending countries.” Higher health care prices in the U.S. are partly the result of the greater use…

mezze maniche ripiene in brodo alla valdardese

Mes mànag in brod (o anche “mesi manghi in brod “…) ovvero “mezze maniche ripiene in brodo”!

La tipicità della tradizione culinaria piacentina con le mezze maniche ripiene in brodo di cappone o gallina e manzo (qualcuno lo fa in terza con l’aggiunta del maiale) raggiunge i massimi livelli che sono andati ben oltre i confini provinciali com’è successo con i Pisarei e fasö e gli anolini in brodo.
