Your mind is still the most powerful super computer on the planet. But You aren’t using it to compute the trajectory of comets or computing derivatives or
Since the publication of The Practice of English Language Teaching in 1983
much has happened in the world of language teaching: new concerns have
occupied the minds of methodologists and applied linguists; new textbooks
have been written; new techniques have become fashionable. We must be
grateful for all this flux and change since without it teaching would be a grey
and ultimately depressing experience. But of course it isn't (except

Consistent with my long-standing aspiration to become a psychoanalyst,
I trained in psychiatry at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center of Harvard
Medical School in the early 1960s and completed a residency there.
Then I changed direction. I decided not to obtain psychoanalytic training or
even to have a clinical practice. Rather, I spent the next 40 years doing biological
research—developing a reductionist approach to learning and memory,
first in snails and then in mice.
In the past five years, over two thousand coaches have completed the
Coach Training Program at Coach University. As the president of Coach
University and an experienced coach of ten years, I have had the privilege
to work with many of them. In the process, I have found that the
most successful coaches have a few key qualities.
The most successful coaches are demonstrably caring. Coaching is a
people-development profession, not just an information-based one.
To have great sales effectiveness, you have to have a great sales team. Within all teams, whether they are NBA players, the neighborhood little league or the company softball team, there is always opportunity for conflict. The same goes for sales teams. And for independent, results-driven sales people, keeping the team in mind may not be their number one priority. So it’s important that sales leaders know how to effectively manage team conflict.
Life for the Namies changed in 1996 when Dr. Ruth ran into a
horrific woman supervisor as an employee in a psychiatric clinic.
In her life before completing a PhD in clinical psychology and specializing
in chemical dependency treatment, Ruth had been a corporate
training director, management consultant, and retail manager. Gary
(PhD, social psychology) was a professor at several universities, the
director of two corporate training departments, and a management
During the price presentation, a great way to close is
to ask, “Out of these three membership options,
which one are you leaning toward?” But this is where
many rookie salespeople make a mistake. Most times
the prospect will point to or tell the salesperson which
option they prefer. The common mistake that a
rookie salesperson makes is that they will not begin
immediately filling out the membership agreement.
They will continue talking, potentially changing the
prospects mind after they have already said yes. ...

Meaning in context
It is not impossible that in the minds of some persons the idea of employing gentle measures in the
management and training of children may seem to imply the abandonment of the principle of authority, as the
basis of the parental government, and the substitution of some weak and inefficient system of artifice and
manoeuvring in its place. To suppose that the object of this work is to aid in effecting such a substitution as
that, is entirely to mistake its nature and design.
The third stage characterizes the progression to professional expertise in writing. The
writer must maintain and manipulate in working memory a representation of the text
that might be constructed by an imagined reader as well as the author and text
representations. Notice that this stage now involves modeling not just the reader's view
of the writer's message but also the reader's interpretation of the text itself. In
knowledge-crafting, the writer shapes what to say and how to say it with the potential
reader fully in mind.

The Role of Your Mind & Self-Image
Many people do not give much attention to the thoughts that go through their mind and yet these thoughts are what form their life. You create and attract into your life according to the thoughts you hold, especially those thoughts that are in your deep mind. In this report you will learn a lot about how opportunities are created, and how you can
Just sit down . . . no need to be going anywhere,” the man said. I did not want to listen but somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew there was some wisdom to the words. He went on as though he were introducing the powered essence of an epic play and, to be truthful, he might well have been for all the stuff that was taking place in my life— his too. But he was drunk as a rambling lord and I was as sober as a confused cemetery headstone. And I might well just have been...
It was in the Fall of nineteen seventeen at an officers' training camp
that I first became acquainted with John Carter, War Lord of Barsoom,
through the pages of your novel "A Princess of Mars." The story made a
profound impression upon me and while my better judgment assured
me that it was but a highly imaginative piece of fiction, a suggestion of
the verity of it pervaded my inner consciousness to such an extent that I
found myself dreaming of Mars and John Carter, of Dejah Thoris, of Tars
Tarkas and of Woola as if they had been entities of my own experience
rather than the figments...

Trivia. The very word is chameleon-like, brimming with many
meanings, almost like Humpty Dumpty saying to Alice, “When I
use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more
According to Noah Webster, the word itself derives from the
Latin trivium, singular for trivia, “that which comes from the street,”
which meant that when three streets came together in a town
plaza, those who met there joined in a three-man debating society
Mike Piazza had one thing on his mind when he stepped up
to the plate for the first time in the New York Mets’ game
against the San Francisco Giants. It was May 5, 2004, and the
Mets’ slugger desperately wanted to hit a home run.
Hitting homers was as natural as breathing air to Piazza.
In 11 years in the big leagues as a catcher, he had smashed 351
round-trippers of every kind: line-drive rockets, towering moon
shots, bottom-of-the-ninth blasts, crushing grand slams.
