It’s Friday, so why not take a break and solve this Seven Planet Riddle from Ted-Ed. Getting the answer doesn’t have to be just about getting the answer, solving riddles is a fun way to keep your brain sharp.
Riddles also let you improve upon your problem solving skills. The key to solving a problem is simplifying the issue to better understand it and using deductive reasoning, no different than when IT contractors find solutions for clients. So take a stab at the riddle and see what you come up with!
Canadians love Thanksgiving weekend! A long weekend, fall weather, delicious food… and awkward silences at family gatherings. If you need to start a conversation while sitting in a quiet living room staring at cousins you barely know or you need to quickly change the subject after your uncle makes an offensive comment, then this video from Bright Side is here to help!
Challenge yourself and then your family with some of these logic riddles that they claim will increase your IQ. You may choose to run through all of them this weekend but keep in mind, more family gatherings and awkward silences are just around the corner in December.
As another long weekend approaches, it’s once again time for you to save humanity by solving a Ted-Ed riddle. This time, an earthquake has created a risk of a deadly virus escaping a lab and destroying the world. Naturally, it’s up to you to stop the virus from getting out, but securing the lab requires you to solve a complex riddle.
Hint: You may need to refresh (start?) your knowledge on Hamiltonian Paths. Good luck!
We’re approaching a long weekend, and that means it’s time for another riddle from TED-Ed!
We’ve had the Bridge Riddle, the Hat Riddle the Passcode Riddle and the Counterfeit Coin Riddle, but none will compare to this Three Gods Riddle. This riddle was created by magician Raymond Smullyan and popularized by his colleague George Boolos and has been called the hardest logic puzzle ever. Can you solve it????
Are you one of the many Canadians preparing to head into a long weekend? If so, you may be seeking ideas for conversation with friends or activities with to do with family. Look no further than this video from Ted-Ed!
The Counterfeit Coin Riddle will leave some people scratching their heads and confused yet be a breeze to many others. It may only fill a few minutes of time, but it will force you and your friends or family to think a little bit before returning to a more relaxed state of mind.
The TDC is packed with helpful business information, tools, and advice, but we’re not always about business. Sometimes, especially Fridays, we like to share some fun videos that add a bit of distraction to your day (and yes, we’re aware that it’s counter-productive to the time management rules we often push). To finish off the “2016 in Review” series, we thought it would be fun to share some of the top videos from last year that have absolutely nothing to do with business and everything to do with procrastinating.
If you’re any sort of a geek, you’ll appreciate these videos
Please don’t waste your entire day on these, but a small break never hurts and in fact, can increase your productivity! We hope you enjoyed this “2016 in Review” series. We’ll be back Monday with plenty of fresh content for everyone. Have fantastic Friday and a great weekend!
Here’s another Friday Brainteaser (or distraction, but “Brainteaser” makes it feel like you’re still working). If you managed to solve TED-Ed‘s Bridge Riddle and Hat Riddle we shared over the past few months, then take a crack at this Passcode Riddle.
A little brain teaser for you before we head into the long weekend. Can you solve The Hat Riddle from TED-Ed and save yourself from the super intelligent alien overlords? If you can, did you use the same method as the people in the video or did you have another (possibly simpler) solution?
As you sit at your desk today, surfing the internet for distractions and anxiously await the arrival of the long weekend, have a look at this fun video from TED-Ed. Can you solve the bridge riddle? Once you have, take a look at Monday’s post for tips on how to stop procrastinating!
