People use the term HTML5 in two ways:
- to refer to a set of technologies that together form the future Open Web Platform. These technologies include HTML5 specification, CSS3, SVG, MathML, Geolocation, XmlHttpRequest, Context 2D, Web Fonts (WOFF) and others. The boundary of this set of technologies is informal and changes over time.
- to refer to the HTML5 specification, which is, of course, also part of the Open Web Platform.
Although it would be great if people used one term to refer to the specification and another term to refer to the set of specifications, in practice people use the term both ways.

Microsoft offers Visual Studio Community version for free. But if you are looking to design an HTML website, not an asp.net Web Forms or MVC application, it won’t offer you anything other than what EW4 offers, and will be far less easy to navigate since it really is for asp.net, primarily.
The only competitor is Dreamweaver, which is not free (quite expensive, now, actually), and has its own list of foibles and critics.
Dan Gilbert: The surprising science of happiness

8:30 synthetic happiness
The psychological immune system works best when we are totally stuck, when we are trapped. This is the difference between dating and marriage. You go out on a date with a guy, and he picks his nose; you don’t go out on another date. You’re married to a guy and he picks his nose? He has a heart of gold. Don’t touch the fruitcake!
You find a way to be happy with what’s happened.
We should have preferences that lead us into one future over another. But when those preferences drive us too hard and too fast because we have overrated the difference between these futures, we are at risk.
When our ambition is bounded, it leads us to work joyfully. When our ambition is unbounded, it leads us to lie, to cheat, to steal, to hurt others, to sacrifice things of real value.
When our fears are bounded, we’re prudent, we’re cautious, we’re thoughtful. When our fears are unbounded and overblown, we’re reckless, and we’re cowardly.

Who Attains Status? Similarities and Differences Across Social Contexts
Social Psychological and Personality Science August 2015 vol. 6 no. 6 692-700
Nicole M. Lawless DesJardins, et al.
Informal groups form hierarchies and allocate social status in order to coordinate action and make collective decisions. Although researchers have identified characteristics of people who tend to get status, the extent to which these characteristics are context-dependent is unclear. In two studies, participants from the United States (N = 157) and Germany (N = 95) engaged in affiliative or competitive group interactions. We investigated whether the nature of the group’s task moderated the relationship between status attainment and personality. As in previous research, we found that extraversion predicted status in both competitive and affiliative contexts. In contrast, agreeableness was only associated with status in affiliative contexts. These findings underscore the importance of examining the relationship between personality and social status in context.

“Search Inside Yourself” — how does it work? It works in three steps.
The first step is attention training. Attention is the basis of all higher cognitive and emotional abilities.
Therefore, any curriculum for training emotion intelligence has to begin with attention training.
The idea here is to train attention to create a quality of mind that is calm and clear at the same time. And this creates the foundation for emotion intelligence.
The second step is developing self-knowledge and self-mastery.
