At first you decorate the entrance with plants, stones etc. to make sure that each door represents a house and each house represents a category of knowledge like e.g. History, or Math. After visualizing the door you go into the house where you visualize about 3-5 rooms. You want to make them spacious enough to store the information you need but also don't want to make it so big as to feel lost or for the items to be isolated and it should be well lid.
Then you use two technigues: 1. you place items in good visible places. They should be the anchor of the sub category of information you want to store. Let's say you are in the House for "history", in the first room you have the antique age, and there you want to learn the names of the great philosophers. For this you imagine a working desk with a lot of letters and items. Each item can be ordered in a certain way or be connected by a certain logic (color code, properties or by thematic connection).
2. you then take 1 specific item in your hand and enlarge it until you can see the smallest detail. On this item you can now place the information anchors you need. For example an ink feather can be broken down into 3 parts, the quill tip, the body and the tail. Each of the part can be enlarged again and be broken down into smaller parts. The feather structure for example could look like houses. And in the houses reside Plato doing things you want to connect to him.
This way one work desk can store book shelves worth of information. It all works on the principle of enlarging physical objects and to link information there.
There are a few guidelines: - make the image vivid and live - use colors and sounds - create movement - crystallize the visual image of objects as good as possible before enlarging them
Remember, real objects take up space. so you should not overlap them or put them on top of each other.
Interesting. Now it makes sense why the scientist who was sent there to investigate got fired. She basically witnessed the wrong doings of the USA and Israel. Damn, now I'm starting to hate those countries.
25 members of the team who allegedly killed Bin Laden are dead. Authorities say one of two Navy SEALs injured during parachute training in southern Arizona has died while the other man remains hospitalized.
A U.S. Special Operations Command official said Friday that the SEAL died in a Tucson hospital Thursday but didn’t have a condition update on the other man.
Serviceman killed in parachute training accident ID’d as member of elite Navy SEAL team 6 – @NBCNews
SEAL Team 4 Commanding Officer Job W. Price commit suicide. He was best known for finding and then killing Osama bin Laden.
Cmdr. Job W. Price, 42, died Saturday, Dec. 22, of a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan.
Suicide of the Officer of this grade raises many questions among the media, as the team was best known for killing Osama Bin Laden that assaulted his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 1, 2011.
Over 20 navy seals are now dead who killed bin laden, coincidence? Yeah.. right.
Built to dominate the enemy in combat, the Army’s hulking Abrams tank is proving equally hard to beat in a budget battle. Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams.
But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, “No thanks.” It’s the inverse of the federal budget world these days, in which automatic spending cuts are leaving sought-after pet programs struggling or unpaid altogether.
Republicans and Democrats for years have fought so bitterly that lawmaking in Washington ground to a near-halt. Yet in the case of the Abrams tank, there’s a bipartisan push to spend an extra $436 million on a weapon the experts explicitly say is not needed.
The New York City Police Department announced Wednesday that it will deploy, then track, what it calls “harmless” gases into the city’s subway system over three non-consecutive days this summer.
The plan, to be enacted in July, will investigate New York’s readiness to handle a chemical terrorist attack by dispersing the colorless gas and tracing it as it flows through the city, according to Scientific American. The test is expected to cost $3.4 million and is scheduled to be carried out in all five boroughs and dozens of stations on 21 of the city’s 34 subway lines.
“The NYPD works for the best but plans for the worst when it comes to potentially catastrophic attacks such as ones employing radiological contaminants or weaponized anthrax,” police commissioner Ray Kelly said in a statement.
The police will use roughly 200 detectors to monitor the gas. Dubbed the Subway-Surface Air Flow Exchange, the test will be the largest of its kind and organized in cooperation with the energy department’s Brookhaven National Laboratory. They’ll use perfluorocarbon tracer gases (PFTs), which are frequently used to measure potential sites for underground construction.
‘US miscalculated just how much North Korea would react to war games’
The recent US war games on the Korean peninsular were primarily aimed at provoking North Korea into action and Washington seems to have underestimated what could be Pyongyang’s response, Japan-based journalist James Corbett told RT.
Corbett is certain that right now all the parties are more inclined to negotiations.
RT: The so-called nuclear club is an exclusive group. There are only seven nations in it. Will North Korea be allowed to join it?
James Corbett: The question is whether or not anyone has the right to say if they are allowed to be the part of this exclusive club. But I think what we have to understand right now is that North Korea is calling out these other nations on the nuclear hypocrisy that’s been hard-wired into international relations for a long time now. If you look at the actual statement that was made, they said for example that their position is clear, that one shouldn’t dream of de-nuclearization on the Korean peninsular before de-nuclearization of the world is realized.
RT: China says in no way will it accept a nuclear armed Pyongyang. Is that authentic, do you think?
JC: I think what China is doing is trying to defuse the situation that could spill over into military conflict that would obviously be disastrous for China’s policies in the region. In the event the North Korean government is toppled there will be an incredible influx of refugees to China. China has its own stake in the game. But I think it really has to be seen as a poke in the eye at the community that assembled in Seoul last year at the Nuclear Security Summit to talk about de-nuclearization of the world but that was of course specifically directed to countries like North Korea and Iran, which were invited to the summit.
RT: The U.S. has cancelled war games, missile tests all to cool tension. It doesn't seem to have worked so what's next?
JC: I think it’s important to put that in the context of the fact that those war games were taking place in accordance with a plan that was developed by the Obama administration. It was reported on by the Wall Street Journal earlier this month called the Playbook, which was specifically designed to provoke North Korea in the latest Korean war games simulations, which happen every year. These war games taking place with B52 and B2 nuclear capable bombers dropping ammunition on the Korean peninsular and F22 advanced fighter-jets – it was specifically part of the provocation to get North Korea to react and perhaps they miscalculated just how much North Korea would react. In any way right now what we have is Guam seeing more missile defense, Japan seeing more missile defense, contractors throughout the region receiving more money. North Korea is getting at least overtures from the US and South Korea that they will play more on the negotiating table and China has so far managed to maintain North Korea stopping it from tattling. Everyone got what they wanted out of this latest ploy. So I think from here we could see at least some sort of attempt at some sort of talks, but how fruitful they will be is another matter entirely.
RT: China is warning a fourth nuclear bomb test in North Korea may be imminent. What's the North trying to prove at this point?
JC: Those promises aren’t worth the paper. We’ve heard this rhetoric before. So far nothing is materialized so I don’t think we should believe it until we see it. It should be seen as part of the game that’s been played and it has succeeded so far in getting the US and South Korea to at least contemplate talks.
A North Korean missile launcher has moved into the firing position with rockets facing skyward, Kyodo reports, citing a Japan defense official.
The Japanese government is on high alert, citing indications that Pyongyang might soon launch ballistic missiles at its island neighbor.
Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said Thursday morning that so far Tokyo was responding by “gathering a variety of information … with a sense of tension,” according to Kyodo.
Several Patriot Advance Capability-3 missile interceptor units have been deployed in Japan over the last few days to defend key military units and the country’s capital city, Tokyo. One of the units was set up at the Defense Ministry’s headquarters in Ichigaya, in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Ward.
The Patriots’ deployment followed Japan’s deployment of Aegis destroyers equipped with SM-3 interceptor missiles.
Japan authorized its forces to shoot down anything fired at it from North Korea.
The indication of the new North Korean readiness follows South Korean and US forces’ announcement of an upgrade of their surveillance alert status to the highest possible level before coming into a state of war.
It also comes amid revelations from South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, with a government source saying Pyongyang is preparing multiple launches of shorter-range Scud and Rodong missiles. “There are clear signs that the North could simultaneously fire off Musudan, Scud and Nodong missiles,” an anonymous military source was quoted as saying on Wednesday.
The military alert status is now at Watchcon 2, reflecting a perceived “vital threat” from North Korean missiles after the North warned of a ‘thermonuclear’ war and asked foreigners to leave South Korea.
To counter the threat, two Aegis destroyers with SPY-1 radar have been placed on standby by the South along the Korean Peninsula.
The South Korean military is also operating early warning aircraft Peace Eye and ground-based missile defense radar system Green Pine to counter a potential rocket launch from the north.
On Tuesday, the commander of US Pacific Command said that the US is ready capable of countering the missile threat.
The Department of Defense has issued an instruction clarifying the rules for the involvement of military forces in civilian law enforcement. The instruction establishes “DoD policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides procedures for DoD support to Federal, State, tribal, and local civilian law enforcement agencies, including responses to civil disturbances within the United States.”
Military commanders also have “emergency authority” to use military forces in civilian law enforcement functions “in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances”. This authority is limited to actions “necessary to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order” and “provide adequate protection for Federal property or Federal governmental functions.” In fact, an enclosure to the DoD instruction describing requirements for support of civil disturbance operations states that military commanders “shall not take charge of any function of civil government unless absolutely necessary under conditions of extreme emergency.” According to the instruction, any “commander who is directed, or undertakes, to control such functions shall strictly limit DoD actions to emergency needs and shall facilitate the reestablishment of civil responsibility at the earliest time possible.”
Why did the FBI make a spectacle out of releasing the photos of the alleged Boston bombing suspects to the public feigning ignorance on who they were, asking for the public’s help to identify them, when they knew all along who they were? Remember the FBI saying the following:
These photos should be the only ones the public should view to assist us. Other photos should not be deemed credible. They unnecessarily divert the public’s attention in the wrong direction, and create undue work for vital law enforcement resources.
This entire press conference is now exposed as a lie since we now know the FBI was “monitoring them at every step”, according to their own admission.
The FBI originally denied first meeting with the bombing suspect two years ago (lie #2), according to CBS. That was until they were forced to admit their involvement with the suspects.
CBS reported “The FBI admitted Friday they interviewed the now-deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev two years ago and failed to find any incriminating information about him.”
The suspects’ family also states that they were well aware of an ongoing relationship between the FBI and the boys. Family members said they were “monitored” and “counseled” at every step, and the FBI was “controlling” and “following” them for years.
Their mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, in an interview with RT, said that the FBI had made contact with the family on multiple occasions:
“They used to come home, they used to talk to me … they were telling me that he was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him,” Tsarnaeva said.
“They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act!”
So the FBI, after first denying monitoring them, says yes, we did meet with him (Tamerlan) but “failed to find any incriminating information about him” while telling their mother that “he was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him.” (lie #3)
There are only two possible conclusions to explain the FBI’s blatant lies; either they’re covering up their complete incompetence to stop attacks that they were monitoring, or they’re covering up the fact that they were spurring and handling the bombing plot in the first place, as they’ve done in countless other fake terror plot cases.
Do you know the number of officers killed in random crime? That is a question of self defense, of the citizens if you ask me. Why is it that people like those brothers are shot on sight while Geraldo Rivera remain at large even after shooting children? It really scews perspective if you also look at the historic number of "WTF events that should be impossible to occure in a country with proper secret agency." If it weren't for the amateurish and bullshit misinformation that you are fed, I would have thought this would have been a cheap John Grisham novel. Do you really think those bros who are talented enough to get to medic school or MIT would be dumb enough to initiate the bombs from visual range just so that they can be caught on silly video cam feeds by a bunch of pseudo detectives on reddit? Do you really think placing 2 bombs would only cause 3 dead? This is so damn obvious that the bomb was placed to create maximum fear for the least amount if casulties. In other words it is not a typical terrorist statement. Did you not find it strange how the media initially blamed right wing extremists before switching story to a totally different person? Why is it that those brothers were on the watchlist but the FBI or CIA can still make no connection to any of the terrorist groups out there? It is because there are none. When it comes to scapegoating I'm always suprised how wollingly Americans take in lies. Remember when they told you Iraq had weapons of mass destructions? That Iraq had Anything to do with 9/11? Remember the reason you went to war to kill innocent citizens and shoot children and mothers was because your government told you, they had definite proof that Iraq was responsible for 9/11?
They were wrong then and they are wrong again. The sad thing is, you didn't learn shit.
I'm all for helping the victims and families. They have my condolescence, but they are victim of their own government and it is time you see that the official coverstory is only a coverup for another crime to the population. And maybe one day, when all your rights are being stripped away, when digital surveillance has turned your state into a Stasi apparatus and xenophobia and suppression have taken over your interiour policy, then you will understand how the people in Nazi Germany have felt and allowed one of the biggest astrocities in human history to happen, hidden in plain sight. I fear then you will need another civil war to solve your own tyranny. But it will be too late by then.
The FBI followed them for years, 9000 policists and they waited after the bombings happen in order to capture the brothers? It takes a dimwit to not see the scape goating. All the more to believe the whole shit was made up. It's just a friggin nightmare to nowadays live in the USA.
Oh by the way, everything makes fucking sense. The bombers position 4 bombs in different places just to be hunted down by cops and a silly videocam footage. If this were true they must have been the dumbest motherfuckers on this planet, definitely not someone who goes to Cambridge or studies medicine. This smells more and more like false flag to push important bills forward. Anybody know what bills Obama is pushing right now?
So they found two suspects with dubious background and shoot them with shotguns on point black and want you to believe they committed the bombings, even though there was no trial and no official investigation. So shooting a suspect and manhunting two foreigners amounts in the states to careful investigation.
It was the ignorance of people like you that allowed NAZI Germany to happen. I would be careful about how blind one can be. The US government after 911 has literally holed out almost every single constitutional right and civil rights that protected US citizens. It is now legal for the executive organ to detain, torture and even kill US citizens without court hearing. I'd say that's fucked up.
If you want to come with evidence and justice, let me remind you that the USA have already performed several false flag attacks in order to start wars: Tonkin Gulf Incident, Iraq War 2. Both were initiated by the USA and USA alone without any dime of incident, leading to the senseless masscre of over 30 MILLION people. 30 000 000 people. When you want to talk about justice, you should read a history book, because apparently you've never had one in your hand.
Really, it looks like history repeats itself. Look at nazi germany and how they stripped away civil rights of a whol population on the pretense of economic crisis, terrorism and catalystic events like the recent shootings and bombings. God bless the families, but god punish th evil us governement.
They now officially claim thst there were only two bombs and 2 not identified packages that they destroyed. This strongly reminds me of the censorship they did during 9/11 when they claimed that explosives brought those buildings down, just to claim aftetwards that there were no explosives. My take: the person who organized the bombings expected to blow up more bombs, but after seeing the number of casulties decided not to continue it. It is highly questionable as to why the FBI decided to destroy the only evidence, that could lead to finding the perpetrator by detonating unknown packages and there has still be no organization to claim recognition for those attacks, which is highly absurd. Although it pains me to say it, but this incident smells of a false flag attack. USA, you are reigned by monsters!
@about the Afghan wedding, that's also horrible. Why do they keep screwing up if all they use are so called Smart Bombs?
"A senior U.S. intelligence official told the Associated Press that two other bombs were found near the end of the 26.2-mile course — a report that Boston Police wouldn’t confirm. Homeland Security Committee member Rep. Bill Keating (D-Mass.) called the explosions a "sophisticated, coordinated event."
They now found two other bombs who did not explode. Come on, can a "sophisticated" attack really just initiate two bombs?
They say the bomb were put inside those buildings next to the street. But it might be just me, but from the footage the bomb does not seemed to have been placed effectively. Maybe the original goal was to scare the people instead of creating destruction. I don't believe that this was committed by Islamists, otherwise they would have claimed responsibility by now.
The forgetting curve hypothesizes the decline of memory retention in time. In 1885, Hermann Ebbinghaus extrapolated the hypothesis of the exponential nature of forgetting. The following formula can roughly describe it:
R = e ^ ( -t / s )
where R is memory retention, s is the relative strength of memory, and t is time.
Herman Ebbinghaus did an experiment where subjects memorized a list of meaningless three letter words and tracked how quickly his subjects forgot the words. As you can see from the graph below, known as the Ebbinghaus curve, our learners will rapidly forget information.
In the case of meaningless information, only 20 minutes after they only remember 58% of the information.
So how do we help them overcome the Ebbinghaus Curve?
Well the speed of forgetting depends on a number of factors such as the meaningfulness of the information, stress level, repetition of information and the use of mnemonic techniques.
So, making the information meaningful for our learners is one way to help them remember. It is a lot easier to remember the phone number of a favorite restaurant than 7 meaningless numbers.
As the graph below shows, Repetition of learning definitely improves retention of information. Initially the information needs to be repeated quickly -- good instructors often repeat the important information in a class.
Review of information after a class has a dramatic effect on information retention. According to the Curve of Forgetting: University of Waterloo, participants who spend
10 minutes reviewing information within 24 hours of receiving will raise the curve almost to 100% again.
A week later, it only takes 5 minutes to “reactivate” the same material and again raise the curve.
By day 30, your brain will only need 2-4 minutes to give you the feedback, “Yes, I know that…”
Yes, we are the dark side. We are the Imperial Raw Manga Army. We keep uploading raw manga series that used to be extinct from the web.
So what if we combine all raw manga collections that we have and fuse the mighty force into a restricted forum consisting of highly active uploaders?
Here is the problem:
Uploaders: Uploaders regularly face the problem of missing several chapters or volumes to complete a series and create a new topic. Due to the lack of sustainable file hosts, it has become more difficult to find active raw manga sources and the work has become more tedious than it used to be. On the other hand uploaders sometimes don't want to share their resources and links in public for all to see. So what if we create a restricted forum for highly active uploaders only?
Scanlators: On the other hand scanlation groups are looking for quality scans or at least tank releases, but might not be able to find the volumes they are looking for. This is why, we will create a special Request and Upload Topic consisting of scanlator requests only. The raw links will be sent via Private Message only and the uploader's nickname has to be included into the credit page (if not requested otherwise).
Well, what do you think about it? I'd like to hear the opinion from all of you, but especially from our more active members.
It is not a porn bill. It is a disguise to slip in internet censorship and monitoring similar to ACTA and SOPA. Since the legal definition of porn is such a wide definition, it could range from displaying a child butt to a nipple slip. As such it makes possible to legally attack any site temporarily, thus creating an effective tool for foreign media to censor certain politically motivated sites.
Introducing a porn bill to EUROPE who for the most part show nipple and sex movies in the primetime 8.00 pm tv slots, just because they like the rating of it, is hilarious. It would be like showing anti-gun propaganda in US television, they would laugh about it.
Why do you call them Marxists? Why not actually talk out about what they think and why they think that way. For my part when I listen to US media I just pick up as much as propaganda as when I was listening to a communist's state's radio program from the 80s. It is ridiculous to listen to mainstream media when it comes to politics.
Neither am I the anti-US type. I'm the critical US-Government type. The difference is huge and has to do with education. Why should I blame the US citizen for their government? They cannot even vote for their own party. On the other hand communist countries or former communist countries that still have communist structures have their own problem with corruption and ineffiencies, but so do modern democratic nations. It has absolutely nothing to do with what you label those countries.
Rapidshare, in an attempt to increase profitability, has decided to limit the space of free users to 5GB by April 4th 2013, that means all files above that limit are going to be removed. So make sure to migrate your files or backups.
I want to remind you that both mediafire and rapidshare are hot places and I strongly suggest you to spread your files over multiple file hosts. Rely on multi uploaders and the industry will never stop us!
You cannot have both low production costs AND high living conditions for the people. So in a way capitalism requires poverty of the masses to work. And since slavery is forbidden, there is only financial slavery. That's the strategy the USA are going for. But with its dumb politicians and lobbies, they still don't produce any products themselves anymore, except for food. Since they don't produce any stuff themselves, there are also no incentives for technical research and thus their whole technology level is outdated and not up to date anymore. The lack of production creates a lack of income for the masses, thus leading to lower tax income for the states, thus leading to budget cuts in education, thus leading to a lack of highly skilled workers, because all they do is get a loan for an outdated education.
So the USA have - financially enslaved masses - poor general education for the masses - lack of production facilities and thus a lack of spending power - lack of state tax income - lack of highly skilled workers, which is why they readily open their market for foreign gradudates - the lack of a purchasing power and production leads to a reliance on real estate and insurance sector, as well as overall financial sector to drive the economy, because of this the financial lobby is driving politics and economics
