Soy un ladrón. Second. Why Don't You Try This?: The 10 Inventions of Nikola Tesla That Changed The World. Note: This article was first posted some time ago, but in honor of Nikola Tesla's birthday, we thought it would be valuable to repost for new readers. Please feel free to add your own information, article links, or video links about Tesla and his work in the comment section below.

I would also point you to Rand Clifford's 3-part series: Nikola Tesla: Calling All Freethinkers! Which has a wealth of different information than what you will read below. Also, Dave Hodges' new article: Harnessing Quantum Entanglement Is Humanity’s Secret Weapon highlights the importance of the cover-up that has kept Tesla's true genius from the world for far too long. Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. Nikola Tesla is finally beginning to attract real attention and encourage serious debate nearly 70 years after his death. But, let's take a look at what Nikola Tesla -- a man who died broke and alone -- has actually given to the world. 1. NIKOLA TESLA.

Die Theorie der multiplen Intelligenzen ist eine Intelligenztheorie, die Howard Gardner in den 1980er Jahren entwickelt hat, weil nach seiner Überzeugung die klassischen Intelligenztests nicht ausreichen, um Fähigkeiten zu erkennen (und entsprechend zu fördern), die über den Erfolg im Leben in verschiedenen kulturellen Umfeldern (bzw. Berufen) entscheiden. Aus dieser Theorie hat Gardner in seinem Buch The Unschooled Mind Vorschläge erarbeitet, wie Schulen lehren und die Fähigkeiten von Schülern fördern sollten. Diese Ideen haben eine Diskussion rund um die Welt angeregt.[1] Die Intelligenzen[Bearbeiten] Howard Gardner versteht unter Intelligenz eine Anzahl von Fähigkeiten und Fertigkeiten, die notwendig sind, echte (genuine) Probleme zu lösen oder Schwierigkeiten in einem bestimmten kulturellen Umfeld zu überwinden.

Sprachlich-linguistische Intelligenz Logisch-mathematische Intelligenz Musikalisch-rhythmische Intelligenz Bildlich-räumliche Intelligenz Körperlich-kinästhetische Intelligenz. Genie. Klugheit. Fresken in der Galerie des Palazzo Medici-Riccardi in Florenz, Szene: Prudenzia Klugheit (griechisch φρόνησις phrónesis Vernunft, lat. prudentia) ist die Fähigkeit zu angemessenem Handeln im konkreten Einzelfall unter Berücksichtigung aller für die Situation relevanten Faktoren, individueller Handlungsziele und sittlicher Einsichten. Seit Platon zählt die Klugheit zu den vier Kardinaltugenden. Kant hält sie für ein pragmatisches Wissen um die der Beförderung der eigenen Glückseligkeit dienlichen Mittel, womit der Begriff eher die Bedeutung der „Verständigkeit“ annimmt.

Klugheit ist in zwei Richtungen abzugrenzen: Im Gegensatz zum auf das Allgemeine gerichteten Wissen (griech. epistéme) richtet sich die Klugheit auf den einzelnen konkreten Fall mit der Absicht, in ethischer Hinsicht das Gute, Zuträgliche und Angemessene zu erreichen. Auf der anderen Seite grenzt sie ihre Bindung an die moralische Lebensführung von Schlauheit, Gerissenheit, Tücke und Verschlagenheit ab. Platon[Bearbeiten] Deciding How We Age as We Age. Seth Cochran If someone asked me to describe the Transhumanists I know in one word, I would say “ambitious”.

We have some pretty lofty goals- immortality, mind enhancement, uploading. But ambition isn’t always enough. We have to make tough decisions about money, relationships, and education, sacrificing more than most to accomplish our goals. To make those decisions, we need our brain functioning in tip-top shape, but a new study shows that you have less time to make the best of your brain than previously thought.

Breakdown of white-matter pathways affects decisionmaking as we age According to a poll by the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies: A majority of IEET readers age 35 or older who answered our recently concluded poll say they expect to die within a normal human lifespan. Your brain is constantly changing, and as you age it changes for the worst. Being a youthful 21 years old, on a more personal note, I only have 20-40 years to make rational, well-informed decisions. Plot Development: How to write the climax and ending of your novel.

By Glen C. Strathy* Plot development is something you should think about after you have written a brief plot outline (Part 3). In this article, we're going to consider how to make sure the plot of your novel incorporates a satisfying climax and resolution. Many writers, especially pantsers, don't like to think about how their plot develops until they've written most of the first draft, preferring to let the ending evolve organically out of what comes before. Others may plan an ending ahead of time, but they prefer to rely on instinct, feeling, and a lot of trial and error rather than any kind of theory. I believe, however, that you can save yourself a lot of time and effort in the long run by making a few decisions about how your plot develops and the nature of your story early on. Of course, your ending must make emotional and logical sense. Will Your Novel End Happily, Unhappily, Or Somewhere In Between?

If the answer is no, then in classical terms, your novel will be a tragedy. 1. 2. 3. 201 Ways to Arouse Your Creativity. Arouse your creativity Electric flesh-arrows … traversing the body.

Musings on British Literature: 1790 to Present: Themes in The God of Small Things. In The God of Small Things, there are two central themes. One of these themes is memory, or the act of forgetting, most specifically Estha’s deliberate forgetting. Related to the theme of memory is time and its different aspects: captured time and the subjectivity of time. I found Estha’s forgetting, or as he calls it, "hoovering" his mind, to be one of the most compelling themes. He does it because of one particular memory, the memory of when he told the police that Velthua kidnapped him and Rahel.

The theme of time is symbolised by Rahel's plastic wristwatch that has the time "ten to two" painted on it. While the other members of the family remember "The Loss of Sophie Mol," the twins only remember the day that they "loved a man to death. " Inglorious Enterprise.

Considering I’m a creative coach, some people are surprised to learn I’m a little sceptical about creative thinking techniques. For one thing, there’s a lot more to creativity than thinking. It’s possible to sit around having lots of creative thoughts, but without actually making anything of them. But if you start making something, creative ideas seem to emerge naturally out of the process. So if I had to choose, I’d say creative doing beats creative thinking. And for another thing, a lot of ‘creative thinking techniques’ leave me cold. Having said that, here are four types of creative thinking that I use myself and which I know for a fact are used extensively by high-level creators.

The text below introduces the four types of creative thinking, and the worksheet will show you how to apply the techniques to your own work. 1.
