Video games for children and teenagers should be chosen carefully. Well designed games are great teachers as they provide both fun and learning. Such games provide feedback on the player’s success by enforcing penalty, helping in learning the game at different levels (like easy, medium and difficult) and also by providing opportunities to practice the game so that it can be mastered. While playing video games, actions are repeated several times, which is a pre-requisite for strengthening brain cell connections (known as synapses). Repeated actions assist in increasing memory storage and learning as coined by the Canadian psychologist Donald Hebb “Neurons that fire together wire together”. Many studies have showed that video games have a lot of merits. A neuroscience study published in the Nature, shows that playing video games increase visual ability at the edge of the computer screen. Other studies reveal that video games can help an adult differentiate between different shades of gray (known as contrast sensitivity) which is required for activities like driving at night. Also the games involving the gamer to work as a team help in increasing collaboration skills. A new study conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charite University Medicine St. Hedwig Krankenhaus shows that playing the Super Mario 64 video game increases the size of those regions of the brain that are responsible for orientation, memory formation, planning strategies as well as other motor skills.

Some games require gamers to maintain constant awareness on the screen which in turn improves navigation and way-finding skills. During playing, movement of the controller of the game changes with what the gamer sees on the screen. This improves the hand-eye coordination of the gamers. “When you become one of the top players in a game like World of Warcraft, tens of thousands of players are essentially under you, so you become like a virtual god,” explains Dr. Greenf...

Analysis of the Conflict Between Conventional and Contemporary coined as Old vs. New in ‘Life of Galileo’ by Bertolt Brecht

“Someone who doesn’t know the truth is just thick-headed. But someone who does know it and calls it a lie is a crook” - Galileo

The legitimacy of truth depends on the knowledge that it has been said. And knowledge is gained through research and constant doubting. The results that come from research show that reality can be reached if one only speaks the truth out loud and openly for everyone to benefit because otherwise the truth is buried in the depths of the silence. In this silence, the legitimacy of truth is lost and it is longer useful and practical for those who need the truth. This play is a good representation of the legitimacy of truth and how it becomes a reality if it is acknowledged and how this acknowledgment creates space for the traditional to take its place in history and make way for the contemporary to takes its place in the present. In this sense, the play can be read as an emphasis on the conflict between the church and the scholar; whereby the church represents the old system of Scholasticism and the scholar represents the new system of the Enlightenment.

The conflict between the conventional and the contemporary is a topic that continues to be trending as long as the differences between the old and the new exists. This conventional side, which can be called the scholastic side, of the conflict portrayed in the play is presented through the church, in which its teachings and doctrines are regarded as valid and acceptable. Because of this, the public we see in the play have become accustomed to a certain way of living, in which there is no questioning of the teachings and no doubting of the doctrines of the church. The people were afraid to say anything against the church, which was why they were silent and kept to their everyday lives. As long as they were safe and had their life moving on, it didn’t ma...

The most important aspect of the fundamental contents is to really define and understand the importance of content marketing. Today we talk a lot about content marketing. Everyone talks about it. There is a lot of content about it. But many marketers are not entirely sure how to define content marketing and how to really adapt it as part of their marketing strategy. Content marketing is the process of creating valid and relevant content to attract, capture and engage your audience.

Common marketing errors of content that should be avoided

1. Guess your audience instead of knowing them.

It is not enough to presume that you know what your audience is interested in or that, if something interests you, it will also involve your audience. Using tools like Google Trends and Google Keyword Planner is a good place to start; even better if you can connect directly with your customers through surveys via email or personal interviews.

2. Do not allocate sufficient time to generate the title.

This is one of the easiest traps to fall. You spent hours and hours creating a piece of content and your brain is very fried. So give the slap a sufficiently relevant title in the copy and call it a day. A good rule is to spend about half the time generating a great title, since it has led you to write the piece. If this seems like a ridiculous amount of time, it's a good sign that you should pay more attention to the degree.

3. Emphasize quantity over quality.

Perfect Life

Human beings are known gods best creation because they have the ability to think and create things according to their need. With this ability, human beings have been trying to create and invent things to make life easier and better for every individual in this world.

In this process, human beings have gotten into a race of making life better and better day by day for their family. In the course of achieving “Perfect life “human beings have actually forgotten what it actually means.

Many philosophers and scholars have given their vision on how to live “Perfect Life” and how one can achieve it. People constantly driving in the race of making more and more money, have forgotten happiness doesn’t come with money. It is achieved by individuals in the form of true love and mental peace. Though human being has reached till stars and the moon but forgot the basics of life and what actually they need. It is not just effort of achieving materialistic things of the modern world, but also to become superior to others humans, that have made them a robot rather than good human beings.

Taking a closer look in today’s modern life of human beings, people have cars to drive them to anywhere they want, people made beds consisting of mattresses and pillows for comfortable sleep, but still don’t get a sound sleep, People consume sleeping pills to sleep for few hours. People don’t have time to eat yet anything they eat, they need medicine to digest it. People are so much involved in social networking, but still, say they are alone. Why this hollowness inside every human being, even after achieving so much and having so comforts in their life? That’s a major concern why unhappiness around the world, why higher divorce rates, why people killing each other, why families getting smaller in size, why people have such low tolerance, all these questions keep...

Types of Student Aid

Introduction

Student Aid can be the key variable that determines whether a student chooses to pursue post-secondary education. Whilst Student Aid can be easily divided into gifts and self-help, obtaining of student aid is a complicated process. Student Aid can be obtained by both undergraduate or post-graduate students. However, the amount of funding available maybe different based on some key factors. These factors include financial need of the student, individual program requirement, eligibility of the student for available funding, and the date at which funding was requested. Within this document we will look at the different types of student aid available, and what the pros and cons of each of them are.

Grants

Grants are a type of student aid that is considered as a gift to the student. Therein there is no obligation for the student to repay the amount of aid that is given to him/her. Student aid in the form of grants can be applied for before a course of study is started or whilst it is underway. Grants are usually small amounts of funding compared to the total amount that has to be paid for the course. These grants can be awarded for particular reasons and the money must be used for a strict purpose. For example, a book grant might award the student $1000 dollars, but the money can only be used to buy textbooks for the course in question.

The advantage is that it alleviated a level of burden from the student, and even acts as a reward for doing well in a particular area of study. The con or disadvantage is that the student does not get a lot of money, and that the money is restricted for a set purpose. The most obvious advantage however is the fact that it is a type of Student Aid that need not be repaid.

Loans

A student loan is a type of Student Aid that can benefit the student towards reaching his or her educational goals. Student Loans can be granted by the government (federal of state authorities) or granted to the student by a ...

There’s no greater aspect of human stupidity than believing in our own individualism , our own uniqueness . Since we first stood a foot on this planet we have been taught that somewhere deep down in us we hold a unique flame , a flame that makes us different from everybody else . All adds up to create in us what makes us humans : Selfishness. But doesn’t having something in us that differs us from others means we are more alike than we think ? This is exactly what Margaret Mead addressed beautifully in one of her quotes: ‘Always remember that you are unique just like everybody else ‘.

This ugly truth finds a way to hit us at some point of our lives . A truth that we cherished for too long and took pride in till it became us , our definition. And I won’t deny that disbelieving in our individuality is by far one of the scariest decision we have to make as human beings ; If we are -to a certain extent- exactly the same , why there’s far too many of us on this planet ? won’t one unit just suffice ?

Answer is No . The reason is : we are all connected , we are all part of the bigger picture. We somehow are essential for the act of existence of one another . This metaphysical connection we all have is absurd and magical at the same time . We all had an experience in which we felt this wonderful connection with another human being , and here m not talking about love and friendship , I’m talking about something far beyond that you fail to explain , you fail to tame and put into norms .

Have you ever felt that someone was looking at you and when you turned you found that it was true ? Have you heard about women having their period synced when living in the same dormitory or when sharing some sort of connection with each other ? Patterns like these existed and still continue to exist , people experience them by dozens and yet scientists fail in most cases to prove their eligibility . Many studies were performed in the last couple of centuries regarding su...

But as the employment legislation is expanding and it affects the hiring procedure of a company, we are going to discuss the standard steps that a HR team should follow in order to recruit the best talent for your team while following the compliance laid down by the authorities.

The common mistakes of the hiring process

The United States Department of Labor (DOL) says that several of the business organization are classifying employees as private contractors which is leading to a substantial amount of problem. However the DOL is taking stringent actions against these companies. According to the regulations laid down by Fair Standards Labor Act and DOL there are a few compliances that a HR team should follow while recruiting new candidates. A company should make sure that their HR team is following all the compliances laid down by these organizations.

How to solve the recruitment problem?

Hiring contingent employees, like freelancers or contractors can prove beneficial for your business as it manages to get around some of the tough regulations laid down for the hiring process as the supplier of these labour are required to manage the payments and the compliance end. Using a Human resources business process outsourcing (HRBPO) also helps in reducing a lot of compliance requirements as these help in outsourcing your payroll and legal necessities to an approved service provider. Many of the leading organizations are turning up to these solutions to avoid the hassles of compliances and legal procedures.

When you look around you what you see. Are you seeing anything exceptional? Are there any good things? Are you one of them? Who are they? Wild animals or humans. You are an animal too. You can call yourself a rational animal. You have a high level of intelligence. However, are you intelligent or just a showpiece of intelligent? Many things to consider and thinks about it. Even though you are, an intelligent human being but you are living a life of a smaller animal. No, you are living a life worst life than that. You might have seen movies like the Sylvester Stallone starred rocky or Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan. You will see how both characters lived their life in the wild with all the assistance from the world to get success in their life. They were forced to live off the scrape. They did succeed in it.

It is better to live off the land than living in a jungle of concrete, where emotions are just a part of a fake mass, which reflects the hypocrisy of the world.

Then think who the hunter is and who the prey is. Of course, you are the prey and your boss is the hunter. In the movie rocky, the protagonist did not have anything. Even he wore tracksuit with the holes. He lived in a tiny apartment. He did not have proper accessories to train himself. What did he do? He made use of scraps around him to train himself. He had a coach Paulie, who was old. They both used chickens to increase the quickness in the body. Chicken catching was the way he overcame his difficulty. Instead of running on the treadmill he chose to run and jog in the free world. He was no one's captive. He was the leade...

Home renovation, if not properly planned can lead to massive budget blowouts which can be detrimental for any individual especially if you are on a tight budget. Following are certain tips that can facilitate you to avoid wasting these valuable resources while being able to redesign your house.

  • Plan, plan & plan:

Assessing and forecasting what needs to be improved and how is imperative. Everything about a home renovation is personal and require precision.

Hiring a professional also minimizes the chances of costly accidents. Once you appoint a professional, devise a workable timescale so that they can be held accountable if there are any delays in the process. Have regular meetings to ensure progress.

  • Mix ’n’ match:

Home renovations does not mean that you have to throw all the old things out and bring in new ones. To reduce costs you can mix new, high-end goods with inexpensive or second-hand finds. You can often save on appliances, furniture, and whitegoods. You can also use some of your old things ...
