How to teach mind mapping and how to make a mind map Mind mapping is a visual form of note taking that offers an overview of a topic and its complex information, allowing students to comprehend, create new ideas and build connections. Through the use of colors, images and words, mind mapping encourages students to begin with a central idea and expand outward to more in-depth sub-topics. Mind Map Example Definition of a Mind Map SO WHY NOT DIVERSITY WITHIN UNITY? Variety and uniformity along with unity and diversity are often counter-posed as opposites, yet this phenomenon of unity opposed to diversity or diversity opposed to unity is rarely found in real life. Nevertheless, the former is frequently active within the anti-capitalist movement. In this article I will argue not only that there can be diversity within the anti-capitalist struggle, but that there is already – without unity – and in the future must be diversity – within unity – for it to have any chance of success. Any revolutionary movement by working people (white-collar and blue) against the capitalist system will inevitably require a degree of unity among a diverse mix of individuals and communities. It is a reality that working people of one country, let alone the world, differ in beliefs, aspirations, motivations, languages, ages, genders, skin pigment and abilities.

3 Money Issues You Should Figure Out By the Time You’re 30 If you’re on the cusp of turning 30 and have spent most of your life in Singapore, chances are you’ve never been through a war or had to sleep on the streets. On the other hand, chances are high that your parents drummed into your skull the importance of getting good grades at school and getting a good job. Despite their relatively secure upbringing, the number of 20-somethings who are still clueless about their approach to money never fails to amaze me. And while the Internet is full of articles about the financial goals you need to achieve by the time you hit 30 (build up an emergency fund, yada yada), we think it’s important that 20-somethings first figure out their approach to money. Everything else will flow much more easily then.

What’s Your Learning Disposition? How to Foster Students’ Mindsets Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck’s work on growth mindsets has dominated much of the attention around how students can influence their own learning. But there are other ways to help students tap into their own motivation, too. Here are a few other important mindsets to consider. Belonging to an academic community: Feeling connected to adults and peers at school intellectually, not just socially, through an academic community, is a strong motivator.

Hypnotic Induction Techniques Instructions to Hypnotist The subject is asked to raise an arm so that the hand is slightly above the head and given suggestions. There are a number of aspects of this induction which are worthy of special notice. First, the arm is placed in such a position that fatigue will eventually bring it down. The downward movement is tied into going "down" into a "deep state of relaxation." The harder the individual keeps fighting to hold it up, the more he is committed to the proposition implied by the statement that, "You will not go into a deep state of relaxation until the arm is all the way down."

The problem isn’t that life is unfair – it’s your broken idea of fairness 174k shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Unless you’re winning, most of life will seem hideously unfair to you.

Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds I was going to write about The Big Bang Theory—why, as a nerdy viewer, I sometimes like it and sometimes have a problem with it, why I think there’s a backlash against it. Then some maniac shot up a sorority house in Santa Barbara and posted a manifesto proclaiming he did it for revenge against women for denying him sex. And the weekend just generally went to hell. So now my plans have changed. With apologies to Big Bang Theory fans, this is all I want to say about The Big Bang Theory: When the pilot aired, it was 2007 and “nerd culture” and “geek chic” were on everyone’s lips, and yet still the basic premise of “the sitcom for nerds” was, once again, awkward but lovable nerd has huge unreciprocated crush on hot non-nerdy popular girl (and also has an annoying roommate). This annoys me.
