lets analyze the hell out of battle stations of powerful people!
here's Stoltenberg's setup. why is it like that and not in some other way?
>computer towards window
>away from desk
>back towards his door
Shows he's not worried about things sneaking up on him.
likes to be able to look away from time to time and focus on the outside world
That he won't let his work get between him and his clients who sit in front of him.
uses pen/paper for notes
Seems like a bro.
>wired keyboard and mouse
worrying about bluetooth sniffing?
I remember reading in a kids magazine in the late 90s that Bill Clinton had a computer "inside" the desk though, like with the screen concealed under glass in the surface. This was considered cool in the days when monitors took up the whole desk by themselves.
Here we go
>The president conducts briefings and holds staff meetings in the Oval Office, but it's used primarily as a ceremonial space. Obama does much of his day-to-day work—such as editing speeches and reviewing papers—in the President's Study, located off the Oval Office, and in the Treaty Room, on the second floor of the White House.
>The desk in Obama's Treaty Room, unlike the Resolute desk in the Oval Office, is piled high with paperwork. The room also contains a computer, a printer, and a television. Despite these office amenities, it's unlikely that Obama uses a computer regularly in the White House. As the Explainer noted last year, previous presidents, including Bush and Clinton, went without computers and e-mail in order to avoid the Presidential Records Acts of 1978, which requires commanders-in-chief to archive their correspondence and make it public.
But supposedly Obama uses an ipad in the oval office sometimes, seen in this picture.
see the content, not the form. although i do agree, if i could edit it i'd replace "please don't tell me" with "is" and appended a "?"
here's mao's office. apparently he used one of those primitive "calculators". common mao, outsource to your STEM folks
i wanted to express the idea efficiently, using language. i achieved that, after i tried. of course i won't stop trying things i want to do.
here's Norwegian prime minister Solberg on first day in her new office
Now that you mention it, you must be right. There's no way there is a secret glass top anywhere.
Well, wait, what about Johnson's soda fountain that he supposedly had installed? I thought that was supposed to be a button on the underside of the desk.
It's doubtful that any change would be made to the Resolute Desk. I think some presidents had it moved and replaced, though, Johnson may have been one of them.
> <=50% obesity means your country isn't obese
>actually saying that a country with a 49% obesity rate isn't an obese country
>believing all developed countries want to release true statistics about their weight problems
It's just a pattern. Once the standard of life has increased enough, food will be so available that people will get fat. It's human nature to eat what we can because it's how we survived before farming.
But hey, bubbles are nice to live in sometimes.
usa is more obese.
maybe it's because americans have had longer to get fat, given that the common american got excess of food before the common west european.
or maybe it's because of the lack of state regulations benefiting public health.
in Norway it's considered to put health warnings on candy, such as with tobacco products. that stuff actually helps, and it's on the expense of the companies that supply the unhealthy products
>> <=50% obesity means your country isn't obese
Oh no, that's not what I mean at all. When I said "Norwegia [sic] is obese?" I didn't literally mean "Are >50% of the people obese?"
I just take issue with the phrasing "most of the developed world is obese." An accurate statement might've been "most countries in the developed world have an obesity problem."
