Dreyfus model of skill acquisition In the fields of education and operations research, the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition is a model of how students acquire skills through formal instruction and practicing. Brothers Stuart and Hubert Dreyfus proposed the model in 1980 in an influential, 18-page report on their research at the University of California, Berkeley, Operations Research Center for the United States Air Force Office of Scientific Research.[1] The original model proposes that a student passes through five distinct stages: novice, competence, proficiency, expertise, and mastery. The original five-stage model[edit] Michael Eraut summarized the five stages of increasing skill as follows:[2] Instead the original Dreyfus model is based on four binary qualities: Recollection (non-situational or situational)Recognition (decomposed or holistic)Decision (analytical or intuitive)Awareness (monitoring or absorbed) This leads to five roles: 1.

How to Block Annoying Political Posts on Facebook Add "i" to the end of "/Romney|Obama|republicans|Republicans|democrats|Democrats/" to make it case sensitive. Then you can just do this: /Romney|Obama|republicans|democrats/i Amazing! Do you know if this filters it on every device you use facebook on, or just the one you install social fixer in your browser? Just the one you install Social Fixer on. Seriously? I don't know about you, but there's no substance happening in my Facebook news feed. In your post so say to add the 'i' to make it NOT case sensitive, but TheChadd's comment says the 'i' DOES make it case sensitive. What about synced Chrome on multiple machines? Wow, this is what Lifehacker is for—making cynicism and division more convenient? Cynicism elects Republicans because old people vote more than young people. None of you seem ot be reading my comments here, or my notes in the post. I don't think so; but you can manualy export your Social Fixer options and import them on another computer. I believe TheChadd misspoke. Damn.

Why I Will Never Have a Girlfriend - nothingisreal.com Tristan Miller German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence[1] 20 December 1999 Why don't I have a girlfriend? This is a question that practically every male has asked himself at one point or another in his life. Not the author, though. Lest anyone suspect that my standards for women are too high, let me allay those fears by enumerating in advance my three criteria for the match. That said, I now present my demonstration of why the probability of finding a suitable candidate fulfilling the three above-noted requirements is so small as to be practically impossible—in other words, why I will never have a girlfriend. Number of people on Earth (in 1998): 5 592 830 000[4] We start with the largest demographic in which I am interested—namely, the population of this planet. …who are female: 2 941 118 000[5] I'd've thought that, given the title of this essay, this criterion goes without saying. …in "developed" countries: 605 601 000[5] …currently (in 2000) aged 18 to 25: 65 399 083[4][5]

fourfour Four stages of competence In psychology, the four stages of competence, or the "conscious competence" learning model, relates to the psychological states involved in the process of progressing from incompetence to competence in a skill. History[edit] The Four Stages of Learning provides a model for learning. It suggests that individuals are initially unaware of how little they know, or unconscious of their incompetence. As they recognize their incompetence, they consciously acquire a skill, then consciously use it. Several elements, including helping someone 'know what they don't know' or recognize a blind spot, can be compared to some elements of a Johari window, although Johari deals with self-awareness, while the four stages of competence deals with learning stages. The four stages of competence[edit] Unconscious incompetenceThe individual does not understand or know how to do something and does not necessarily recognize the deficit.

How to Make Limited-Time App Deals Last Forever At least in the case of the Starbucks free apps, the developers get paid. (At least that's how I understand it. I know, it gets in the way of consumer-bashing, but you can have your fill of that on the Consumerist.) You know the developers still get paid in these sales, right? I'm confused by your argument. Also, why do you think the developers do not get paid? Except, of course, the Amazon AppStore which does not pay their free app of the day developer and is generally extremely shitty to developers. Either that or I am, but you definitely aren't padding Apple's pockets any more either way. You would help him or her more by downloading this the free day.

Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity Non-drinkers can finally meet everyone’s ‘judgmental’ expectations by adapting statements from typical college party-goers | Campus Basement After several years’ worth of attending college parties as a non-drinker, I am noticing a concerning trend: we alcohol-free anomalies just are not meeting everyone’s expectations. When we show up to parties, ready to enjoy ourselves without bothering anyone or making a scene, we are a disappointment. Why? Because we are not judging people enough. I’m simply not going to stand for this. Well fear no more, for I have come up with an ingenious plan to provide more than enough narrow-minded judgment for everyone that likes to party and party hard. Statements to use IMMEDIATELY 1) You drink? 2) Why do you drink? 3) Just try it one time! 4) I used to be scared of not drinking too, before I really knew what I was talking about. 5) Are you worried your parents will find out if you don’t drink?? 6) The more often you don’t drink, I promise, you won’t taste anything. 7) Come on, I bet you would be SUCH A FUN sober person. 9) Do I seem like I haven’t been drinking right now?

Turn Any Yard of Fabric into a Chic Beach Wrap Now that you’ve picked out your perfect grill, it’s time to get yourself to the beach! When we saw this wrap in the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog we knew we had to make it, and we knew we could make it rock. Head to a fabric store or grab a scarf you never wear, and get ready to wrap it up.

For your fabric, we recommend lycra, spandex, sheer mesh, or anything else that doesn’t fray when you cut it, but use whatever you like! We employed two different methods for creating our beach dress. Cut a strip off one end of your fabric. Next, fold over the top two corners of your piece of fabric. Now it’s time to string the strip through! Sew the loop ends together and cut off any excess fabric. Repeat with the other side, and you’re done! And here’s how you put it on. Cutie patootie from any angle! Measure the trim by draping it over your shoulder.

A PRACTITIONER'S GUIDE TO HEDONISM The Greek philosopher Epicurus has been a victim of muck-raking and slander for more than two thousand years. Anthony Gottlieb sets the record straight, and resurrects some ancient advice on the good life ... From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, September 2007 WHERE IS is a hedonist to look for his heroes? None of the greatest Western philosophers has produced a paean to pleasure that can serve as much of a guide for today’s enlightened hedonist. Thus Kant preached a stern gospel of dutifulness, and Plato’s pleasures were unstintingly abstract and intellectual. But there is one Greek philosopher whose name has become synonymous with the life of pleasure--especially sensual pleasures, and above all those of a gourmet. Exactly what Epicurus got up to in the undergrowth will never be known. In particular, it was crucial to overcome the fear of death and of an unpleasant afterlife. Epicurus did once say that in order to lead a happy life, one needs first of all to be fed.
