30 Challenges for 30 Days Did you know that it takes 30 days to form a new habit? The first few days are similar as to how you would imagine the birth of a new river. Full of enthusiasm it gushes forth, only to be met by strong obstacles. The path is not clear yet, and your surroundings don’t agree. Old habits urge you to stay the same. So, take a moment to reflect on the question ‘Who do I want to be in 5 years?’ Check out this short TED talk first to get inspired: Now pick one or more challenges and stick with them! However, be cautioned, picking too many challenges at the same time can easily result in a failure of all of them. #1 Write a I-Like-This-About-You note/text/email each day for someone (Easy) This is the perfect way to let someone else know you care. #2 Talk to one stranger each day (Hard) This is a great one to cure approaching anxiety. #3 Take one picture each day (Hard) This one gets harder nearing the end of the challenge because at one point you will run out of the easy shots.

How Doctors Die By Ken Murray, MD Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. Of course, doctors don’t want to die; they want to live. To administer medical care that makes people suffer is anguishing. How has it come to this—that doctors administer so much care that they wouldn’t want for themselves? To see how patients play a role, imagine a scenario in which someone has lost consciousness and been admitted to an emergency room. The above scenario is a common one. But of course it’s not just patients making these things happen. Some doctors are stronger communicators than others, and some doctors are more adamant, but the pressures they all face are similar. Should I have been more forceful at times? But doctors still don’t over-treat themselves.

10 tips for sharpening your logical thinking Logical thinking is critical for IT professionals, managers, and executives. You must be able to diagnose problems end users are having. You must be able to evaluate vendor claims. You must be able to refute your boss when he or she turns down your request for a raise or promotion. 1: The conditional statement Have you ever dropped your smartphone into water? This statement, in logic, is known as a conditional statement. 2: Understanding premise and conclusion shorthand The two parts of a conditional statement have specific terms with respect to logic. Sometimes, in shorthand, you will see the abbreviations "p" and "q" for "premise" and "conclusion," respectively. Once we understand the structure of an original conditional statement in terms of p and q, we can understand three other statements related to it. 3: The converse statement The converse of the original conditional statement simply reverses the premise and the conclusion. If a phone is dropped into water, it is ruined.

Ciencias para el mundo contemporáneo - Aspire To Inspire Types of Radioactive Decay and Their Effect on the Nucleus Video - Lesson and Example Introduction What images come to mind when you hear the words 'nuclear radiation'? Most likely these words conjure up a graphic scene of three-eyed fish and glowing green ooze. Nuclear Radiation Did you know that less than 1% of all the radiation you are exposed to comes from the nuclear industry? What exactly is radiation, and how damaging is it? Nuclear Notation As you may recall, the two particles that are found in the nucleus are the protons and neutrons. Particles in the nucleus can also be represented by this nuclear notation. Alpha Decay Now let's move on to the most common types of nuclear decay. Alpha particles are relatively heavy and quite slow-moving. Beta Decay Next up is beta decay or beta-minus decay. Gamma Decay Finally, we have gamma decay. Blocking a gamma ray is a lot more difficult. Lesson Summary As I previously mentioned, there is no way to escape radiation completely, and it wouldn't make any sense to walk around in lead clothing.

7 Steps To Compel Creativity It is said that art imitates life. To be able to express oneself creatively is both powerful and fulfilling. True creativity resides within all of us, but because of the power of creativity those that aren’t ‘naturally gifted’ feel intimidated to even try. Imagine you’re painting a picture. Now, many would assume that the creative process involves simply transferring this beautiful image onto a canvas, that this is what it takes to be creative. The Subject Matter Layer In this example, nature has already given you a piece of art that anyone with a camera can share. The Creation Technique Layer In a painting, the next layer is the artist’s personal brush technique. Style is a very important part of this layer. The Perspective Layer Painting or photographing a picture is only the beginning of a creative exercise. In the case of our painting, it is the artist with the brush that provides this layer. The Interpretation Layer This is the layer where a piece will really begin to stand out.
