Learn A Language In Seven Days – NOT!

June 26th, 2016

You have probably seen either the spam emails or the advertisements that are showing up on even very popular websites suggesting that you can learn a language in just seven days.

I hope it is obvious that most people will not be learning a new language in seven days. There may be an extremely rare exception, but it is not likely that people are going to become fluent in a language in just 7 days.

It’s just no practical. It takes time. It takes effort. It takes practice.

There are a host of courses out there. If you are bewildered, avoid the ones that make big promises.

Just realize that ‘slow and steady’ wins the race.

I tried a couple of different programs out while trying to learn German.

After a few years, I realized that one of my original choices (that a subsequently ignored) was Rosetta Stone.

When I returned to it, years later, I realized it would have been best if I had completed that training first before trying other things.

I hope this information helps someone looking to learn a new language.

Speak With Confidence

June 24th, 2016

Speaking in public is a skill that can be developed.

However, let’s say you haven’t taken the time to develop that skill and yet you MUST speak in public suddenly.

I have some advice based on experience and what my high school English teacher taught me.

She said that the most powerful speeches are those that come from the heart.   In other words, if you are passionate about something, then just speak plainly and from the heart.  One heart to many.  You have something to say, so say it.   If you are not a polished public speaker, this really works.

On the other hand, if you have more time and you are not facing a situation where you must develop a speech quickly,  this book might be helpful to you.    

It’s called.  Speak With Confidence: A Practical Guide.

My comments: One-Third of The World Cannot See The Milky Way – And Why That Matters

June 11th, 2016

You can read the full CNN article here:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/11/health/light-pollution-atlas-milky-way-irpt/

The article discusses how ‘light pollution’ prevents most of the world from seeing what our grandparents could once see – a much better and more spectacular view of the Milky Way Galaxy  (from our corner).

It goes on to talk about how at least once study has demonstrated the damage that this artificial light can do to our human physiology.   Apparently, it may prevent us from producing enough Melatonin and may also cause us to produce too much cortisone (and the adverse affects associated with that).

It’s interesting how technology and ‘progress’ are altering the world we live in.    Yet, the universe out there beyond us is quite a bit older than our little Earth.   I find it much more interesting to ponder what is out there and what is going on out there.    It’s a vast, immense space, and I’m quite sure there are other civilizations and lives out there.

Yet, this isn’t something that people talk about.  We are consumed by our little lives here and the things we pursue.   How many of us routinely wonder if we SHOULD be pursuing the things we do.

In the human race’s vast pursuit of various things, we may have left a few things behind that we would do well to remember.   Basic goodness comes to mind.

 

When I watch the intrigues, tricks and fighting of today’s political parties and individuals, it doesn’t make me feel good.

Beyond that, the basic way people treat each other in every day life is also horrendous.   It scares me, quite frankly.    It’s ugly.   People cheat each other for whatever they think they can get.

The tricks are hidden.  They are not out in the open.  But is the end result, almost the same as physical violence?  Someone takes and someone loses.

I can’t help but thinking that one of those more advanced civilizations out there in this vast universe has it figured out in a way that we can only dream of.

Our society is almost ruthless.

 

Agree or disagree?  Sound of below.

PS:  I always recommend the book Zhuan Falun which is available for free download at  http://FalunDafa.org   – Likely the very best book I can recommend to you.

 

My Comments on The Article: 76 million Americans are struggling financially or just getting by

June 10th, 2016

You can read the full article here:

http://money.cnn.com/2016/06/10/news/economy/americans-struggling-financially/

This article has all kinds of stats in it, including one that says 46% of Americans do not have enough money to handle a $400 emergency.  Allegedly, this information comes from the Federal Reserve.

There are quite a few other stats in the article, though I’m not sure where they are derived from.

Money is a difficulty for many people.   And this is probably not by accident.

What you can do, that MIGHT help, is to study money as a subject.   I know that sounds weird, but money “works” a certain way in this world.   If you have a good understanding of where money comes from and how, it might help you to do better.   It’s just a thought, no guarantees there.

There is something more important than money

What this article, of course, doesn’t address because it is a ‘money’ website, is the spiritual.

Think about this,  you weren’t born with money.   You aren’t going to be taking any with you when you leave either.

So, maybe it is a good idea to not focus so entirely on money.

What is the bigger picture?  This Earth has been here for a long time, hasn’t it?

The solar system, the galaxy and the universe itself have also been around for a long time.

Isn’t there something bigger than money going on in that huge Universe out there?

What is it?  Some people talk about spirituality or religion or whatever.   But aren’t there real concrete laws that govern the Universe?

I’m not really talking about the laws of physics, I’m talking about something bigger.

How do you begin to understand the workings of the Universe we live in?

I suspect that you can begin to find the answers in a book called Zhuan Falun.  You can get your free copy of the book (download) or read it online at http://FalunDafa.org

Tell me some of the reasons you believe there are bigger things than money in the comments below…
