Sept 8: Modern Young Finance weekly round-up Daily Telegraph; 2 September, Rachel Bridge Sylvia Tidy Harris, founder of the Speakers Agency, says that young people are putting themselves at risk of unemployment because of their lack of manners and poor attitude. Small and medium businesses are increasingly opting not to hire young people because they lack the right attributes, and she calls for schools to take urgent action to prepare young people better for the workplace.
Sleep learning is possible: Associations formed when asleep remained intact when awake Is sleep learning possible? A new Weizmann Institute study appearing August 26 in Nature Neuroscience has found that if certain odors are presented after tones during sleep, people will start sniffing when they hear the tones alone -- even when no odor is present -- both during sleep and, later, when awake. In other words, people can learn new information while they sleep, and this can unconsciously modify their waking behavior. Sleep-learning experiments are notoriously difficult to conduct. For one thing, one must be sure that the subjects are actually asleep and stay that way during the "lessons."
How to succeed as a creative long term: know your C.O.D.B.

Even veteran freelancers don’t seem to know what their daily C.O.D.B. number is. C.O.D.B stands for "Cost of Doing Business." Basically it’s a number that represents what it costs you to operate your business for every day that you work.

How to treat your brain during revision time If you're a student, you rely on one brain function above all others: memory. These days, we understand more about the structure of memory than we ever have before, so we can find the best techniques for training your brain to hang on to as much information as possible.

Ben Mathis Put your money where your mouth is -Ben Mathis I've always liked the saying, “You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?”. I see so many people talking about this or that, but when it comes to putting actions behind their words, they can't be bothered.

An Artist Grown: Reflections on Being a Video Game Art Director As the studio art director at a video game development studio and publishing house, I oversee the art quality of all the games the company develops and publishes, including advertising and publishing material. Most of my time is spent on first-party games, as that's our bread and butter. Second- and third-party games don't get as much love because they're usually developed externally; I just review them during milestones, either signing off on them or making a list of comments with references, mock-ups, and other changes for the external team. To explain what an art director does, you need to see how a game comes together from the art director's point of view. Guru Discover the finest freelancers online. Post a Job (FREE) Want a Job?

Chew on This: 8 Foods for Healthy Teeth Regular brushing and flossing help keep teeth healthy by getting rid of sugars and food particles that team up with bacteria to form plaque. Plaque produces acid that damages tooth enamel, causes cavities and sets the stage for periodontal, or gum, disease. Now, a growing body of research is finding that certain foods may be good for teeth, too. Just as so-called "functional foods" may keep your heart healthy, for instance, others may promote oral health, according to Christine D. Wu, a pediatric dentistry researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
