    One common anti-pattern when introducing DevOps to an organization is to assign someone the role of ‘DevOps’ or to call a team a ‘DevOps team’.

For each additional hour of TV watched by a child under the age of 3, the likelihood of an attentional problem by age 7 increased by about 10 percent. So a preschooler who watches three hours of TV per day is 30 percent more likely to have attentional problems than a child who watches no TV.
