Speed Read & increase your reading comprehension Simply start by clicking on the Play button on the left. Reading is that one activity that we do every day but we don't really practice. Most people learn the basics of reading in kindergarten and never graduate to the next levels. You are probably using the same basic rudimental tools and techniques that you learned when you were 6. The average American person reads at an average speed of 180 to 240 words per minute and has done so since he was 16 years old. Does it make sense that we hit our best performance at age 16 and that we don't improve much after that? Keep in mind less than 10% read at 400 words per minute and less than 1% faster than 600. Have you ever wished you could take one of those costly speed reading courses? The problem with those courses is that you have to keep practicing those techniques until they become second nature. That's the goal of this site. We are here to keep you focused and to help you improve your speed reading everyday. What is sub-vocalization?

Futility Closet Einstieg - Wiki: Am 24.10.2006 wurde von Holger Buss und Ingo Busker das MikroKopter-Projekt ins Leben gerufen und später die Firma HiSystems gegründet. Bereits Mitte 2007 schwebte der MikroKopter stabil wie ein Luftnagel aber auch schon agil wie eine kleine Schwalbe durch die Luft. In diesen Anfangstagen bildete sich auch schon sehr schnell eine große Fangemeinde von MikroKopter Piloten die sich stetig immer weiter vergrößert. Hier das erste Jahr als Videodokumentation incl. Erstflug: Von Anfang an wurden laufend immer weitere Komponenten und Neuerungen hinzugefügt - und ein Ende ist noch lange nicht in Sicht. Um einen ersten Überblick zu erlangen, soll diese Seite soll Ihnen helfen ersten Fragen zu beantworten. INFO: Wörter, die in blauer Schrift zu sehen sind, können "angeklickt" werden. Eine Übersicht der Möglichkeiten des MikroKopter's und findet man auch hier: Ein Video sagt mehr als tausend Worte - Diverse Videos über und mit dem MikroKopter können hier ausgewählt und angesehen werden: Videos

Rain Shield A 2012 red dot award winner for design concept, Lin Min-Wei and Liu Li-Hsiang's Rain Shield could make carrying an umbrella 1) somewhat stylish and 2) more than an exercise in futility. Its shield-like construction uses a single curved steel wire and telescopic rod to create both overhead protection from water falling from the sky and, more importantly, lateral protection from water, mud, and motor oil tidal waved at your being from assholic buses and SUVs barreling through puddles. On top of its increased functionality, the Rain Shield's simpler design eliminates traditional umbrellas' pointy ends and sharp edges, as well as their propensity to blow inside out and make users look like poor saps that passersby sympathize with, but can't help but chuckle at. It also conquers portability, folding and compressing into a 7" diameter disc that tucks snugly into bags and purses. To collapse, just retract the telescopic pole, and swirl the shield surface inward. Muchas danke to Yanko Design.

Converge - USB Charging Hub How to Download Youtube Videos via the Command Line I don’t purport this tutorial as being the ideal way to download Youtube videos to your computer. A simple Google search will lead you to an assortment of options that requires less technical expertise. However, if you’re like me, and are relatively new to the command-line (think your OS without the GUI and a mouse), this might be an interesting way to accomplish something relatively useful (download Youtube videos to your computer) and also obtain a better understanding of how your computer works. Basic requirements In this tutorial, I’ll be using a command-line program called youtube-dl. It requires that you have Python version 2.6, 2.7, or 3.3+ to work. python --version The program is not platform specific so it should work for Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. Installing youtube-dl First, click this link to download the latest version of youtube-dl. Next, open up Terminal on your Mac. cd /usr/local/ Next, type into Terminal: open bin Click to enlarge A short intro to file permissions cd bin

Alt Codes - How to make those Smiley Faces For those who would like to know how to do the copyright symbol © or the Registered Trademark symbol ® or other things like funny faces etc. For all of these you press the ALT key and while the ALT key is pressed down you put in the numbers from your NUMBER PAD on your keyboard- (it won't work using the numbers at the top of the keyboard) make sure your NUM LOCK is ON. There are all different kinds of codes, from those drivers use in a truckers report forum to Alt codes like those found here. Of course when truckers report in on a truckers report forum their codes are very different from those found below, they don't comment on copyright codes but rather codes of the road...even still codes are extremely important in various occupations. ¤ - Alt 15 ¶ - Alt 20 § - Alt 21 | - Alt 124 Ç - Alt 128 ü - Alt 129 é - Alt 130 ƒ - Alt 131 ä - Alt 132 à - Alt 133 † - Alt 134 ç - Alt 135 ê - Alt 136 ë - Alt 137 è - Alt 138 ï - Alt 139 î - Alt 140 ì - Alt 141 ô - Alt 147 ö - Alt 148 Here's Some Others

Top 10 Camping Gadgets You Must Have In our days it isn’t enough to have a tent to go camping. There are a lot of other things that we have to be thinking about, and it seems like that one of the most important ones are the camping gadgets. Which of them to bring? 1. It’s not uncommon to see flashlights with LEDs and even such flashlights that come with a tripod, so why is this product so special? Since the legs are magnetic and they are coated by rubber, they offer you even more possibilities to mount the torch. 2. In case you go on a camping trip that doesn’t mean that you have to give up all the conveniences that you have at home, such as good coffee. You will have your coffee in 10 minutes and the amount that you can make at once is enough for about two cups. 3. What does this little thing do? Also it offers you entertainment because it can play music from an external source through audio line in. 4. You can also use it as a sleeping bag or a swag-style tent. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Arc-shaped 48-inch curved Alienware monitor with 2880 x 900 pixels You are at: Home > Computers > Curved 48-inch Alienware monitor with 2880 x 900 pixels If you’re looking for an Alienware monitor the company is now promoting what is probably the ultimate gaming display (or any other kind of display for that matter). This 48 inch diagonal monitor boasts a humongous 2880 horizontal pixel resolution and a refresh rate of 2 milliseconds. A curved Alienware monitor Such a refresh rate cannot currently be achieved with LCD so this Alienware monitor employs rear-projection technology and this, unfortunately, results in a rather deep back to the device. The monitor being demonstrated is a prototype at CES this week but expect the real thing to be available later this year. Update Yes this monitor really was launched for real under the NEC brand (albeit at a slightly reduced size of 43 inches) and you can read about it here: NEC will start selling CRV-43 in July — that’s a 43-inch 2880 x 900 curved monitor!
