My Most Influenced Words from Sachin after Double ton

Master batsman Sachin Tendulkar said records are meant to be broken and he would be glad to see an Indian eclipsing his epic unbeaten 200 that he smashed against South Africa on Wednesday.

"No record is unbreakable. Records are made to be broken and I would like to see an Indian breaking this record," Tendulkar said, dedicating the knock to all his fans.

"I do not play for records. I play for enjoyment and for my passion for the game. I did not start playing cricket for breaking records. It has happened over the time. But it feels great," Tendulkar said at the post-match press conference.

Asked when he felt like getting that double hundred, he said, "After reaching 175-200, I thought. But it's not that only double hundred was there in my mind. The ball was coming nicely and I was striking the ball well."

"I have enjoyed challenges. I have enjoyed the game 2007 onwards and credit goes to Gary. He has held the team beautifully, it's about holding the team together. Even at the practice, he has worked as hard as players and probably harder than anyone else. Things have been good," he said.

"I respect the sentiment. These things help during tough times and when you go to the field," he said.

The Simplicity and his attitude is the most influenced things to me.

More flexibility in work schedules boosts employees' health

Washington, Feb 18 (ANI): A new study has suggested that giving employees more flexibility over their work schedules is likely to boost their health.
However, interventions that are motivated or dictated by the needs of the employer, such as cutting hours, either have no effect on employee health or make it worse, says the research.
"Control at work is good for health," said review co-author Clare Bambra, a researcher at Durham University, in England.
"Given the absence of ill health effects associated with employee-controlled flexibility and the evidence of some positive improvements in some health outcomes," Bambra said, more flexibility in work schedules "has the potential to promote healthier workplaces and improve work practices."
Review lead author Kerry Joyce, also a researcher at Durham University, said that in addition to physical risks, the workplace can pose a threat to health due to factors like high workloads, time pressures, lack of control and limited social interaction with others.
Stress, in turn, can contribute to conditions like heart disease, depression and anxiety.
In the review, the authors sought to determine what researchers have discovered about the effects on health of "flexible working" - measures that give employees more autonomy.
They also looked at other kinds of interventions, such as involuntary part-time employment and mandatory overtime, that help employers.
The researchers found 10 studies that fit their criteria for review inclusion. Three took place in the United States, two in Finland and one each in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia and Denmark. Another study analyzed workers in the U.K. and Germany.
The review appears in the current issue of The Cochrane Library. (ANI)

String with White Spaces in Java

In Most of the Data Formatting/Reports Applications we may require to create Strings with White Spaces with different sizes. I have found an issue on this as follows.

  1. Once i need to create spaces in between some data in my report, The implementation as 
  2. 1. StringBuffer  sb=new StringBuffer();
      2. sb.add("                                                     ");
      3. sb.add("Name :"+name);
      4. sb.add("               ");
      5. sb.add("age :"+age);
  3. Here the existing issue in line no 2 & 4, we have the string of Space Separator, But the code looks odd, and in case some added a space more in the same string it will be difficult to identify while Commiting the file in SVN or VSS .
  4. I made some implementation in Java Using Character Arrays which will give provide performance by using StringBuffer.
import java.util.Arrays;

   public class WhiteSpaceString {
       public final static char SPACE_SEPARATOR = 32;

       public static void main(String[] args) {
          System.out.println("|" + getWhitespaceString(10) + "|");

       private static String getWhitespaceString(int length) {
          StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
          char[] whiteSpace = new char[length];
          Arrays.fill(whiteSpace, SPACE_SEPARATOR);
          return sb.toString();

If you have any Better approach for the same please update me.
