職場でのネット閲覧、8割は仕事と関係ない

今や我々の日常にすっかり浸透した"インターネット"。だがカンザス州立大学の調査結果によると、職場でのインターネット使用のうち8割は仕事に関係ない、つまり"私的なもの"だという。

ちなみに英語では、職場での私的なネット閲覧は"サイバーローフィング(cyberloafing、loafはだらだらする、怠けるなどの意)"と呼ばれる。

『コンピューターズ・イン・ヒューマン・ビヘイビア』誌の最新号で発表されたこの結果。同大学のジョセフ・アーギン助教授は、「特に若い人には、勤務中のSNS利用が"容認できない行為"だと認識させるのは至難の業です」と語る。

「(勤務中のネットの私的利用を禁止するという)職場のポリシーを掲げるだけでは、彼らの態度や行動は変わりません。自分たちのネット使用状況が監視されているとわかっていても、大して気にしていないのです」

なお今回の研究では、若者はFacebookをはじめとしたSNSに、そして中年以上は自分の資産管理についてネットを閲覧する、という傾向があることもわかったそうだ。2011年には「勤務中にネットを閲覧することで、従業員の生産性や創造性がアップする」という別の調査結果も発表されている。とはいえ大抵の場合は、仕事への好影響よりも「ポルノ鑑賞」や「何らかの違法な取引への加担」、「ファイルのダウンロードで職場のPCがウイルス感染」などのリスクに繋がる可能性のほうが高いのでは?

"息抜き"程度にしておけば問題ないと思うが、かなり依存している人が増えているのは事実だろう。

Monks looked up at the magnificent night sky filled with thousands of lanterns in awe. Yi Peng lantern festival is meant as a time for tham bun to make merit. This was the moment I've been waiting for and it lasted very quickly due to strong wind. A very heavy downpour occurred right after we left the place. The lanterns were made of organic materials.

Ghoramara island is located on a delta region in West Bengal. Due to the dramatic increase in sea level, resulting from the effects global warming since the 1960s, the shores of this island are being perpetually washed away. Since the 1980s more than 50% of the territory has vanished due to erosion by the sea. Many of the people still living on the island are farmers and fishermen who depend on the islandís resources for their livelihoods. According to a civil servant I met, in 20-25 years the Indian government could abolish the island and has already formulated a plan to evacuate villagers to another island named Sagar. However, this evacuation plan does not ensure any financial support or compensation for those having to relocate their lives. I situated villagers on the shore and took portraits of them in juxtaposition with the beauty of the vanishing island. There will come a day when these people will have no choice but to move out of their homeland.

The calm of both human and animal. The things we miss as we are preparing. My partner was getting her flippers on and I was already prepared and ready to get in so I swam out to see if I could get this shot, I could have never imagined that in a million years I would have a turtle just cruising by at the moment I stuck my head under. How blessed.

The marriage bra, unlocking the key to women's hearts everywhere.

Fish food sold separately.

Maybe you can't grow bigger boobs, but you can grow rice!

This bra helps you score a hole in one every time.

This bra demonstrates the rise of women in Japan and looks super comfortable!

Because nothing promotes tourism and pride in one's country quite like a bra.

Who wouldn't like to eat food like this?!

The jury is out. This bra is guilty of being uncomfortable.

A bra designed by Bjork.

How romantic!

Overcoming addiction just got a whole lot easier.

If this bra doesn't stop the birth rate decline in Tokyo, then I don't know what will.

Turn your iphone on and turn him on with Triumph's solar bra. Because what is more attractive than a fully charged phone?
