Pointers and Advice on How to Learn Science Terminology and Tips on Revision Techniques

The Problem: Imagine if you had spent a whole year (or if you were lucky, a month or two) writing lots and lots of notes and these notes were the key to your understanding of certain topics and were the foundation of your revision. What if you were to lose them? What if you were to somehow damage them? There is a chance that you may read them back later and realize that they do not make a lot of sense / you are no longer clear on what the meaning is. Then what?

The Contemplation: I would suggest you do what I did; have your notes based upon universal science glossary that is easy to understand. This way you could then write less notes (saving time) and use the glossary to start from the basic meanings and scientific terminology and progress though to the harder to understand. At the very least it would be good to use in conjunction with your existing notes to cover all the gray areas you have. I would go one step further and bring these ideas into the modern age and have them focused upon one knowledgeable, easy to understand, constant, informative and extremely helpful source.

I also found that when I was studying science there was a lot to take in and there are many multiple meanings within terms and words that mean exactly the same thing. These meanings, terms and words just come from different places and times. Who knows why they could not have just used one way or one description or kept the same words and terms instead of changing them? Learning all the new terms is hard enough, right? …

Student Plans – Health Insurance for College Students

Most colleges require students to carry health insurance, though plan requirements vary from college to college and university to university. Most schools offer health insurance plans to its students, which can be waived if the student is covered under a family plan, or under a parent or guardian’s insurance plan. Student plans are known as SHIP, Student Health Insurance Plans. For students enrolled in a health insurance plan through their university or college, the premiums are often part of the school fees and tuition costs. Some college student plans require visits to the school’s health center and does not allow students the choice to see their own physician.

A student plan typically covers trips to the college or university’s health center, prescription medication, checkups, and will sometimes cover appointments with specialists. A copayment or deductible may be required for emergency room visits, if covered at all. Each plan is different and each school has different plans. Research the plans available at the school of choice prior to enrollment. A student may also benefit from looking at student plans from private insurance providers outside of school. Since health insurance rates and premiums are competitive, it is well worth it to shop around and research plans.

In addition to a SHIP plan, more coverage options may be attainable through additional voluntary student plans. These voluntary plans may allow the student to see doctors other than the ones at the student health center or go outside the network. A voluntary plan may also provide the student with the ability to receive health care from specialists and may provide additional medication coverage as well as dental and vision coverage. This is a great option for students that have monthly prescriptions or conditions that may require visits to a specialist.

Students entering college are required to have a medical checkup and have several vaccinations. With these medical costs that are incurred before school even starts, it is a good idea to have student coverage health insurance prior to starting college. International students with a J-1 exchange visitor visa are required to have student health insurance as well, per the U.S. Department of State. An international student should choose a student plan that also includes medical evaluation insurance, health and accident coverage, and repatriation of remains. The basic plans offered by universities and colleges will cove basic medical needs and medications, but more extensive coverage can be obtained from other student plans.If you need assistance in locating particular coverages at a pre-determined price, we can help save 50% on health insurance.…

Motivated Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are unique individuals that see something more in a product or service other than just its basic form. These individuals can see the unique qualities that can be shown to the world or they can create something out of nothing. These people have ideas that make others think, Wow! Although, how do they keep going? How do they find that motivation within themselves to get up every day, work those extremely long hours and strive for that moment of success with their idea? Motivation is crucial to any successful entrepreneur. It is the backbone to their drive and ambition to create an amazing service or product to share with their customers. Although, without the key component, self-motivation, to assist them to make it through and continue with their journey, there would be nothing to show for it.

Self-motivation has to be embedded in their thought process, emotions and actions. An entrepreneur knows what they are working towards daily. They keep the desire going for their idea with self-motivation and discipline. Entrepreneurs know where they want their end goal to be, or at least most of them do. Is this goal that they want to become millionaires or is it that they want to be the boss? Only the entrepreneurs themselves can decide that and strive as hard as they can for it. Entrepreneurs understand that there is no time to sit back and relax. This job will require everything they have, such as time, money, and all their efforts. As Niklas Zennstrom founder of Skype and Kazaa states, “If you want to be an entrepreneur, it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle. It defines you. Forget about vacations, about going home at 6 pm – last thing at night you will send emails, first thing in the morning you’ll read emails, and you wake up in the middle of the night. But it’s hugely rewarding as you’re fulfilling something for yourself” (Kabbage, paragraph 102). This is an excellent example of the fight within an entrepreneur to keep going no matter how tough things may get throughout their idea’s journey.

An entrepreneur’s motivation is the stronghold that keeps them moving forward and not giving up on their goals. Our brains want us to achieve success, and they also allow negativity with the thoughts of not achieving our goals. As Dustin Wax with Lifehack states in The Science Of Setting Goals “According to research of psychologists, neurologists and other scientists, setting a goal invests ourselves into the target as if we’d already accomplished it” (Wax, paragraph 2). This shows that an entrepreneur’s goals are assisting in motivating his or her mind to continue striving toward his or her accomplishments. In conclusion, Motivation is key to making it. As Neil Patel states in his article The 7 Secrets Self-Motivated Entrepreneurs Know, “Self-motivation is one of the underlying forces that distinguish successful entrepreneurs from those who stagger from one neglected startup to another” (paragraph 27).

Useful Psychic Abilities

At the outset it is very important to understand why developing and using your psychic skills is important. We all possess abilities such as telepathy, clairvoyance, ESP and direct mind over matter power in the form of psychokinesis. Psychokinesis is a very important psychic skill because it empowers one to directly control matter with the mind. We can obviously see how this is so important for all areas of life, and especially in terms of manifesting whatever we may need when we need it and also whatever we deeply desire.

We all have hopes, dreams and aspirations that we want to manifest and for some reason there is usually blockage. This blockage is easily removed when we learn to use our psychic mind over mater powers. That is the subject of this article. The very best information that I can provide on how to effectively use and control your psychic abilities is from my own personal experience. Now, I’ve learned most of what I know about awakening and using psychic abilities within the context of yoga, chakras, meditation and by working with the sacred manuscript known as “This Is PK.”

That manuscript is obviously one of the best resources for learning how to work with psychokinesis and mind over matter in general. Psychokinesis or “PK” is direct mind over matter power. It enables us to move objects at a distance, to control and manifest though much easier, to influence outcomes, naturally heal ourselves and others, and to easily attract whatever is needed or deeply desired in your life. Im sure you can see how this specific psychic ability can be quite beneficial.

Again, we are all obviously born with many psychic abilities. These include: The ability to astral project into other worlds especially during sleep, manifest thought and intent, natural healing powers. It also includes powers such as mental telepathy, clairvoyance and psychokinesis. Many times these latent abilities in humans are triggered, awakened and activated as a result of certain practices and even by simply coming into contact with mere knowledge or information. For example, many people have experienced extreme psychic or mind over matter phenomenon immediately after coming into contact with certain people, certain information, or after merely doing certain practices such as yoga, meditation or chakra work.

The ways that our psychic abilities are triggered or awakened depends largely on our individual and unique Karma. Maybe reading this article or following up with related information will awaken and/or enhance your psychic abilities. In any case, I can assure you that whenever you do experience your real psychic PK power, you will know it and you will not mistake it for anything else. This abilities are very real and also quite fascinatng to experience. Aside from yoga, chakras and meditation work, there are many other approaches for immediately awakening and triggering our psychic abilities.

These abilities are very important to know about because they give one access to a whole other level of mental and spiritual power. And this …

Science is Admitting When You Are Wrong

Have you ever noticed that folks get amnesia; it includes you and me,

when we have to say, the results are in, and I was wrong.

Neuroscientists go against type (Homo sapiens), and immediately publish

to the world when their research indicates they are on the wrong side

of the issue.

It does not matter how ancient and venerated the principle, these guys

find the biggest and baddest Journal and go public with the new findings faulting

their previous thinking.

It occurred recently for the treatment for ulcers, the two Australians got the Nobel. They were wrong about neurogenesis, growth of new brain cells, and neuroplasticity, changes in the function and structure of the brain.

Even the Federal Drug Administration admitted in 2007 some of their drug approvals were killing (heart attacks) the users.

For about three centuries the pro forma principle behind human decision-making, according to the international scientific community, was labeled cognitive, based on a reasoning Cost-Benefit-Analysis.

Philosophers and scientists agreed it separated us from other species, and played out in the advancements of western civilization. We think and act, and are not the puppets of our emotions and instincts.

Decision-Making

Professors Antonio and Hanna Damasio, in the year 2,000, while at the University of Iowa College of Medicine, published an article called Emotion, Decision Making and

the Orbitofrontal cortex.

They opposed the iconic vision of Homo sapiens as the embodiment of logic, reason and analysis, by what they called the Somatic Market Hypothesis. It is a fancy name

for adding your right-brain emotions and feelings to your left-brain reasoning skills.

The Damasios go on to propose emotions are represented by changes in your body state. For the geniuses: specifically two areas in your brain; your somatosensory cortex and your orbitofrontal cortex.

Who Cares

First, emotions and instincts occur through your right brain, and are at a non-conscious level (no awareness).

Second, your mental imagery is deeply involved in decision-making. When you

are beset by negative images, you decide differently than when your mental movies

are positive and offer successful reinforcement. Remember, images precede your

feelings and emotions, and result in different behaviors. Think about it.

One more once. Your orbitofrontal cortex is the basis of your reasoning,

logic and lineal Cost-Benefit Analysis. But it is only one piece of the jigsaw

puzzle.

Amygdala

It is your Amygdala, located in the Limbic system of your brain,

and responsible for your emotions and feelings, plus your somatosensory/insula

cortices,and peripheral nervous system, that are the other critical

structures for decision making. It is left and right brain integration.

When you say humans are reasoning creatures, I think, therefore I am, (according to Decartes), you quote the science of yesterday. The Damasios were the first to focused on the relationship between emotion, decision making and working memory.

They feared not the wrath of the scientific establishment in contradicting

the undisputed knowledge of a up to three centuries of science. They chose to destroy the myth of human cognition as the core …

College Consolidation Helpful Hints – Some Tips to Consolidating a Parent Plus Loan

College consolidation debt relief will mean the difference between financial success and financial failure for many students as they venture out into the real world after finishing school. This is because being able to refinance all of their school related debt will free up more money for them to do the things they love to do.

One of the debts that a lot of students want to include in the consolidation plan is the Parent Plus Loan. This loan is one that is essentially taken out by a student's parents and can be used for all types of school related expenses including tuition, books, and housing.

While a student will absolutely benefit from what the Parent Plus loan affords them, in the long run that student may not be able to include that loan as a part of their refinance. In reality, the Parent Plus loan is the responsibility of the parent and it will forever be linked to them.

The good news is that if a parent wants to consolidate their school loans they can do so and include the Parent Plus loan as a part of their overall college consolidation. One way to avoid this snafu is to look diligently for alternative forms of school financing that does not include receiving help from parents.

Many students forgo having to ask their folks to help pay for school by taking a break right after their senior year in high school to focus on working to save some money in order to get the ball rolling. This money-saving technique has saved many a student from that dreaded conversation with their parents.

Also something to consider, some parents just are not in the position to put their credit on the line for a Parent Plus loan. These are just a few of the things to think about when dealing with college consolidation and Parent Plus loans. …

"I have reliable information (from a person who works there) that they have sold 70,000 diplomas, including medical, in four years, with revenues of more than $ 150 million."
