Here are the most important ones. Nowadays, short stories have one certain benefit: they are short. And “short” doesn’t only mean the number of words or characters. It also means the fast pace, the single-minded plot, and the concise form. Someone may say a short story is a substitute for a novel. Let’s face it: digital reality is switching our lives. In times of traditional publishing, a 25-page short story was not serious enough to bear the cost of printing and distributing it as a separate publication. Nowadays, authors can publish any piece of writing in a digital form, no matter how long – or short – it is. It changes the perspective. It’s not justified to say that we face the revival of short stories.

untitled A técnica Pomodoro é famosa, mas extremamente simples. Basta dividir seu tempo em períodos de 25 minutos (chamados de “pomodoros”), trabalhar em suas tarefas nesses períodos e, a cada quatro ciclos, fazer uma pausa de 15 minutos para descansar. A ideia é que você trabalhe ininterruptamente durante cada ciclo de 25 minutos. Essa técnica foi inventada por um italiano no final dos anos 1980 e seu principal objetivo é evitar distrações enquanto se trabalha em alguma tarefa. O nome pomodoro vem de “tomate” em italiano. Como utilizar Você deve ter uma lista de tarefas que precisa executar. Se tiver uma ideia ou se lembrar de outra coisa que precisa fazer, não interrompa o que está fazendo – escreva uma nota para ler posteriormente e continue trabalhando. No início do dia, você deve fazer uma lista de tarefas a serem realizadas para saber quais são as tarefas mais fáceis e as mais difíceis. Minha opinião Muitos usuários da técnica dizem que é legal ter um timer de cozinha mesmo para aplicar.

Consciousness Began When the Gods Stopped Speaking: Julian Jaynes’ Famous 1970s Theory Julian Jaynes was living out of a couple of suitcases in a Princeton dorm in the early 1970s. He must have been an odd sight there among the undergraduates, some of whom knew him as a lecturer who taught psychology, holding forth in a deep baritone voice. He was in his early 50s, a fairly heavy drinker, untenured, and apparently uninterested in tenure. His position was marginal. “I don’t think the university was paying him on a regular basis,” recalls Roy Baumeister, then a student at Princeton and today a professor of psychology at Florida State University. But among the youthful inhabitants of the dorm, Jaynes was working on his masterpiece, and had been for years. From the age of 6, Jaynes had been transfixed by the singularity of conscious experience. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, when it finally came out in 1976, did not look like a best-seller. Jaynes was sent to prison, where he had plenty of time to reflect on the problem of consciousness.

50 short books for busy people Here are the novels, short stories and non-fiction books that will perfectly fit into your busy life. What if we give Frank Zappa’s quote “so many books, so little time” a more positive meaning? There are many fantastic books short enough that it will take little time to finish them. In the list below you’ll find 50 books we found most interesting. Some readers think that a short story or a novella is not a book. Don’t judge a book by its length. And every book you read (because you have time for it) is better than a book you don’t (because it’s so long you assume you’ll never be able to finish it). There are three sections in the list. For each book we created a visual that includes the number of pages (the dots show how it compares to the reference of 200 pages) plus a time it will take to read it. Obviously, the reading time is an estimation. Within one hour a reader should be able to finish a book that is no longer than 72 pages. Would you like to add a book to this overview? 1. 2. 3.

The Sphere of All Possibilities A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon In this message we will endeavor to share with you a method for manifesting outcomes in your 3-D reality as well as in other dimensions of your being. This method is based on a fundamental understanding regarding geometry and the nature of consciousness. There are many geometries available to be used as vehicles for manifestation. The first thing to understand about manifesting is that for every act there is a counter-action. Another important aspect to understand is the admonition to do no harm. Due to the nature of this material we will be giving the information in three parts. The second will deal with non-dual states of consciousness and how to commune with these higher realms of your being. The third portion of this information involves the union of non-dual states of consciousness with the mastery of creating outcomes in time and space. You are standing collectively and individually at a cosmic crossroads. The Method The Hathors
