      • Sports Professionals • Reports Claim Former Man City Star Robinho Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison for Sexual Assault
        Posted by Kazrem on November 23, 2017 at 18:28

        ​Former Real Madrid, Manchester City and AC Milan star Robinho has been sentenced to a nine-year prison term after being found guilty of sexual assault, according to ​reports in Italy.The alleged act took place during the Brazilian's stint with Milan in 2013, with a then 22-year-old Albanian woman accusing him, along with five other men, of indecently assaulting her at a night club.Vasco da Gama v Atletico MG - Brasileirao Series A 2017Robinho, who now plays for Athletico Mineiro in his homeland, has been capped 100 times as an international player for Brazil, also having become the Premier League's most expensive star when he signed for Man City in 2008 for £32.5m.His time in England, though, was not as successful and he was later moved on to the San Siro for less than half of City's initial outlay, making them just £15m when he departed..The attacker did go on to win the Serie A title with the Italian side, teaming up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano to conquer the division. And after a five year spell, he secured a transfer to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergande.Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault during his City days, but was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing. He hasn't had the same luck in Italy, however. But the verdict is still on hold as the Italian justice system allows for several levels of appeal and wont make the sentence effective until after such proceedings - if he is still deemed to be culpable.Source: http://www.90min.com/posts/5838931-repo ... dium=shareStatistics: Posted Posted by Kazrem — Thu Nov 23, 2017 7:28 pm […]

      • HR Professionals • The Power of Positive Thinking
        Posted by Kazrem on November 23, 2017 at 08:07

        Recently on The School of Greatness podcast, I had the opportunity to interview Steve Weatherford, the former NFL Super Bowl champion who was one of the best punters in the world, about his secrets to success.One of the most powerful things that entrepreneurs and success-seekers can take away from the world of sports and athletic achievement is the effectiveness of visualization and positive thinking. Study after study points to the power of this simple yet life-changing practice.What most people don’t realize is that the people who are on the top of their success game already are constantly learning, feeding their souls and minds to continue to grow. One of my favorite things about Steve is that he is so successful, in the top 1 percent of the 1 percent in his niche, one of the best in the world at what he does, yet he is transitioning to the next thing in his life (entrepreneurship) and is still learning and growing.Steve’s key life hack is positive self-talk. He recommends that you “talk yourself through every day. In the morning say, ‘Today is going to be a great day and this is why’.… Visualize your day going perfect in detail. Commit to the habit for 30 days and your life will change.”He doesn’t believe in realistic. He visualizes every single thing going perfectly. Does it? No. But having the vision that it will makes a big difference.“You have to see things happen in your life before you can do it. It is visualization. I learned that as an athlete; don’t ever go out onto the field of competition thinking about what you don’t want to have happen, because once you let those negative thoughts into your mind, they can more easily manifest.“If you are in a place of positivity, your percentage chance of hitting the perfect punt is higher, much higher, because you are thinking about what you want to do, not what you don’t want to do, or what you don’t want to happen.“Your brain is the most powerful muscle you have.”Monday MomentumSteve says his approach to life is to envision, plan and take advantage of Monday’s momentum.“I have been able to accomplish some amazing things because every Sunday I write down the goals that I want to accomplish in every aspect of my life. I map out my vision and accomplishments for the week and I break it into days. Monday is the day I attack the most. I get up early on Monday because it sets the tone for the rest of the week—my mindset, my productivity, my efficiency. Monday is the day I create momentum.”Self-ScoutingSteve talks about the importance of “self-scouting,” or reflecting on your day to review just like athletes watching videos after a game. Identify what you did well and identify the things you did poorly to try to lock and load for the next day.Formula for ProsperitySteve says his formula for prosperity is identifying what your vision is, maintaining your focus, trusting your plan, working every day and being diligent, consistent and positive because you have your vision of where you want to be. Consistent work is the biggest piece of making your vision happen.“Prosperity to me is a combination of health, wealth, gratitude and love, and I gravitate toward people like that because I want to create that in my life and I want to share that with other people as well.”Daily InvestmentSteve says there are dreamers everywhere, but how many dreamers are consistently making the daily investment, that daily sacrifice? It is going to require those daily decisions, that compound interest over time, to get just that much closer to your goal. People have a real problem choosing what they want 10 years from now over what they want today.Make it a priority to surround yourself with positive people who encourage and also teach you.ImpactSteve says he is most interested now in making an impact on people. “You are gonna die. But what are you going to do with your life? You can’t take it with you. What are you going to do between now and when you die that is going to impact people?”Win or LearnEvery mistake that you make, every failure that you have, Steve’s mindset is this: “I am going to win or I am going to learn. I don’t think about failing, I just think about opportunities to grow. You are never going to lose… you are going to win or you are going to learn. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from your greatness.”https://www.success.com/blog/the-power- ... e-thinkingStatistics: Posted Posted by Kazrem — Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:07 am […]

      • Unclassified • How To Learn A Language Fast
        Posted by shafer on November 22, 2017 at 21:52

        Embarking on the quest to learn a new language can be intimidating, so much in fact that many folks talk themselves out of the idea before they even get started. Being able to read, write and speak a dialect other than your own is a skill that can pay dividends for the rest of your life, making it almost always a worthwhile endeavour. Below are some of the best options available across multiple desktops and mobile platforms.There are many apps and online services available that take you through the entire process of learning a language, from teaching basic vocabulary all the way to speaking fluently. Whether you're interested in language learning to advance your career, enhance your travel experience, impress that special someone or you'd like to add it to your child's homeschooling curriculum, the key is starting here.1. Duolingo - Best Free Language Learning Website Language learning is broken down into bite-sized skills by Duolingo, with each lesson designed to feel like a video game. You accrue points when you successfully complete a module and lose a life when you're wrong, gaining experience points as you proceed just as you would in most role-playing games.2. Memrise - Language Learning Games To Maintain InterestMemrise provides about two dozen languages to choose from and tens of thousands of native speaker videos, with the ability to sign up via email, Google or Facebook. Its beginner and advanced courses are also game-centric in many ways, with language learning broken out into structured levels. A leaderboard is posted alongside each course selection, showing weekly, monthly and all-time high scores in an effort to motivate the student through old-fashioned competition and bragging rights.3. busuu - Native Language Speakers Guide YouBusuu takes a slightly different approach to language learning by employing what is essentially a social, crowdsourced model with a global reach. Many of your speaking and writing exercises are corrected and graded by actual native speakers, as opposed to some automated process, ensuring that you receive feedback tailored specifically to your current knowledge level.4. Rosetta Stone - Expensive but Battle-tested SoftwareRosetta Stone's interactive lessons are sprinkled with real-life situations in over 20 different languages. The integrated TruAccent speech recognition functionality works to develop correct pronunciation, with the end goal to have you speaking as if it was your first language. You are asked to read stories out loud, letting you practice in an interesting, enjoyable method all the while analyzing your cadence and pronunciation.5. Babbel - Passive, Interest-based LessonsBabbel doesn't really take the immersive approach that some of the others on the list do, instead opting to provide tips and other guidance in your native language as you proceed through its lessons. Using a combination of your native tongue and the new dialect as opposed to total immersion, the "Babbel Method" is designed so that your brain passively learns based on dialogue content.6. Tandem - Always Someone To Help You LearnA very interesting concept in learning, Tandem's mobile language exchange pairs you with people from all over the world so that you can practice and learn their native language. With over a million community members spanning 150-plus countries, the app's large and extensive member base all but guarantees that there is always someone available to connect with.Tandem lets you find an exchange partner in one or more of the following languages at no charge: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. Visual and audio interaction provides a very personal experience, and you also have the option to request a professional tutor for a fee by booking prepaid lessons during your desired time window.Source: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-learn-a ... &utm_term=Statistics: Posted Posted by shafer — Wed Nov 22, 2017 10:52 pm […]

      • Entrepreneurs • How To Use Procrastination To Your Advantage.
        Posted by Kazrem on November 21, 2017 at 16:16

        Who does not procrastinate?All mortals do.Anyone who says he does not procrastinate is either "sweet mouthing" or telling you what is not. Show me one man who does not procrastinate and I will show you an unapologetic self-denier and self-deceiver. Fact is, we all procrastinate. We only procrastinate on different things. Get that straight.If you ask 10 people why they are not pursuing their dreams or doing what they ought to do, 8 out of them would probably have the problem of endlessly shifting or postponing when they will. That is to tell you how encompassing procrastination is. Even the writer of this article does procrastinate. He had to overcome his inertia to type this. You are not alone.Since we all procrastinate, how then can we use this dream stealing enemy to our advantage?How can we turn it around and make the pepper into pepper soup?How can we make procrastination our friend instead of our dreaded foe?What is the honey in this stinging bee? After all, it is said that a problem is not a problem but how you think about the problem. It is also said that the impediment that blocks the way, gives the way. So know that you can use procrastination to your advantage.How?Why don't people procrastinate to do low-value tasks? Why don't people procrastinate to snap a picture? Or watch movies? Or hang out? Or other low value tasks?Because those things are less important things at least at that moment. They are what Brian Tracy calls low-value adding doings. They require little or less investment hence they have little or no return on investment (ROI). Isn't it? They can be easily done and consume less effort.Conversely, if you procrastinate on doing a certain thing, it invariably shows clearly that, that is the next BIG thing you need to do in your life. Yes. It shows that is your most important, genuine, required thing you need to do at that moment. It shows that is what will give you the highest return on the use of your time, energy and resources.If you doubt me, when next you procrastinate on doing a certain thing, struggle hard, fight and conquer yourself to do it and see its return on the invested time.Have you heard the saying, "Good things don't want to be done"? That is certainly because their return is huge and more beneficial. So when next you keep procrastinating on doing a thing, be aware that, that is the next important thing you need to do and then crush it immediately.That is how you turn procrastination into your advantage.Since you cannot do but to procrastinate, take advantage of it."If you cannot change something, change the way you think about it" - AnonymousKazeem Abolore is my name and I am an innovative teacher and a personal effectiveness strategist.Statistics: Posted Posted by Kazrem — Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:16 pm […]

      • Health Sector • 6 Tips to Get Your Doctor to Listen
        Posted by shafer on November 20, 2017 at 20:51

        Have you ever gone to the doctor and felt like he wasn’t listening to you? Have you tried to tell your story, only to have him interrupt with a checklist of questions: do you have chest pain, shortness of breath, fevers, cough, and so forth? Have you ever felt ignored, and left thinking that your doctor never understood why came to him in the first place?Studies show that 80 percent of diagnoses can be made based on history alone and that not listening can lead to misdiagnosis and fatal consequences. Yet, doctors, these days have less and less time to listen. That’s why it’s critical to make sure your doctor listens to you so that you can help your doctor help you get better.Here are six tips for getting your doctor to listen to you: 1. Answer the doctor’s pressing questions first. Many doctors are so accustomed to relying on a checklist of questions that they have to get these answers before they move on. Help them out and answer these questions. If the doctor wants you to describe the location of your chest pain, describe it. (“It’s in the middle of my chest, right here.”) If she wants to know what you took to make it better, tell her. (“I took an aspirin. It didn’t help.”)2. Attach a narrative response at the end of these close-ended questions. If your doctor persists in asking close-ended questions, add a narrative response at the end that may not so easily fit into a yes/no answer. (“It’s in the middle of my chest, right here, and it started after I really pushed myself in swimming tonight.”) Pretend that you are being asked “how” or “why” instead of “yes/no,” and add your own response. Look to make sure your doctor registers this answer — does he ask you more questions to follow up on what you said, for example?3. Ask your own questions. If you don’t understand why a particular question is relevant to your situation, ask about it. You may be surprised to find that the doctor herself isn’t sure and is only asking the question out of habit. On the other hand, you may find that issues you wouldn’t have thought were related might actually be very important to discuss.4. Interrupt when interrupted If your doctor cuts you off when you try to explain your full answer, feel free to interrupt. Pretend you’re having a conversation, even when it feels like you’re being interrogated. For example, if you’re asked, “When did headache start?” rather than responding “10 a.m.,” go ahead and tell your story of how the pain started: “I woke up this morning and I was fine, then I started walking to work and the pain came on suddenly like a lightening bolt striking me.” This is not a new tactic; lawyers will often coach clients in advance to answer yes/no questions with a narrative so that answers can’t be taken out of context. Interrupting is a way to ensure that your entire answer is heard, not just the part that the doctor thinks he wants to hear.5. Focus on your concerns. If you get the sense that your concerns are being brushed over, interject, “Excuse me, doctor, I have tried to answer all your questions, but I am still not certain my concerns have been addressed. Can you please help me understand why it is that I have been feeling fatigued and short of breath for the last two weeks?” and so on. You can take charge of the conversation at that point. It’s your body and your duty to advocate for yourself if you don’t feel like your story has been understood and your concerns have been addressed.6. Make sure you are courteous and respectful to your doctor. Your doctor is a professional, and is probably trying her best to help you. Your story has to be heard and your concerns addressed, but make sure you present your points in a respectful manner. This will ensure that a solid doctor-patient relationship is present, which is critical to the partnership you need to establish.You may be dissatisfied and frustrated by your medical care, but you can take control of your health care today. Try these tips on your next doctor’s visit, and empower yourself to get the health care that you deserve.Source: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/leana-we ... 27365.htmlStatistics: Posted Posted by shafer — Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:51 pm […]

      • Health Sector • World's first human head transplant has been 'successfully carried out'
        Posted by shafer on November 18, 2017 at 20:23

        A controversial surgeon who aims to carry out the world’s human head transplant claims to have successfully carried out the operation on a corpse.script The 18-hour operation showed that it is possible to reconnect the spine, nerves and blood vessels, according to controversial surgeon Professor Sergio Canavero.At a press conference in Vienna, Professor Canavero announced that a team at Harbin Medical University had ‘realised the first human head transplant.’Canavero said that the first operation on a living patient will take place ‘imminently’.Canavero said, ‘The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done. A full head swap between brain-dead organ donors is the next stage.ae4a62aa17bd840821731095d6e61ab4.pngAnd that is the final step for the formal head transplant for a medical condition which is imminent.’Professor Sergio Canavero said earlier this year that his team had successfully repaired severed spinal cords in rats – a key step towards a successful transplant.The team severed the spinal cords of rats, then treated them with polyethylene glycol to seal and repair damaged spinal cord nerve cells.Within a month, the rats had recovered some movement – and two returned to a state that was ‘basically normal’.Canavero has previously admitted, ‘The final goal is immortality.’He says that there has aready been interest from ultra-rich patients seeking to extend their lives by grafting ageing heads onto fresh, young bodies.Dr Canavero said last year, ‘You bet – there are a few funds working on prolonging life expectancy, and they are well-funded.’Source: https://www.yahoo.com/news/worlds-first ... 53590.htmlStatistics: Posted Posted by shafer — Sat Nov 18, 2017 9:23 pm […]

      • Technology • Here Is a Strategy For Making Yourself Irreplaceable Before Artificial Intelligence Learns to do Your Job
        Posted by Kazrem on November 18, 2017 at 13:40

        The robots are coming! They're not coming to destroy us, they will take some jobs -- and if it's your job, that's nearly as frightening.We're no strangers to seeing jobs replaced by automation. Despite various claims that we're losing trade jobs to China and Mexico, the majority of lost manufacturing jobs in the United States -- which a Ball State study estimates to be 87 percent -- are due to increased productivity and efficiency (i.e., better machines and automation).But, the losses aren't going to stop there. One PwC study found that by the early 2030s, approximately 38 percent of all United States jobs could be replaced by artificial intelligence (AI) and automation. That's higher than the U.K. (30 percent), Germany (35 percent) or Japan (21 percent), and for many Americans, much too high for comfort. Other futurists are even more optimistic (or pessimistic, depending on how you consider it); venture capitalist Kai-Fu Lee believes 50 percent of jobs will be replaced within the next decade.Regardless of where you find yourself on the spectrum of prognostication, it's certain that AI and robotics are going to replace many jobs within the next couple of decades, including white-collar jobs previously thought impossible to automate. So, in this world of advanced AI, what can you do to make yourself irreplaceable?Know your industry.First, you need to understand your industry and how AI could affect it. Some will be more heavily impacted than others and each will be affected in a different way. The Future of Work community outlines five industries that are going to be most heavily impacted by automation:1. Medicine/healthcare. AI in healthcare is already being used to crunch big data and provide better diagnoses for patients -- it's also being used for more precise surgeries (such as with the Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot -- STAR).2. Manufacturing. Manufacturing jobs have been on steady decline for the past several decades as we've gradually advanced the technology we use to manufacture. AI will accelerate that trend even further.3. Transportation. Self-driving cars are the big advancement here. Frontrunners like Tesla and Waymo are already testing early rider programs, and Waymo cars have driven more than three million miles by themselves.4. Customer service. Customer service roles are starting to be replaced as customer service tech improves natural language recognition and conversational capacity.5. Finance. Robo-advisors, like those from Wealthfront and Betterment, are starting to step in and replace traditional human advisors. Considering the lack of trust the public has in the finance sector, there's going to be little opposition to this trend.If you find yourself in one of these industries, and feel your role is replaceable, you could be proactive and start preparing for a change to a different, less vulnerable industry. For now, creative roles and ones that require personal interactions (such as design, writing, event planning and PR managers) are on the safer end of the spectrum.Focus on ideas and management.If a process can be documented and modeled, it can be automated. That used to apply to highly repetitive tasks only, but today's advanced AI can tackle unbelievably sophisticated tasks -- as long as they're bound by a set of rules.For example, Google's DeepMind can beat the best human Go players because there's a clear victory condition and clear rules dictating the game -- even though the game itself is astronomically complex. In fact, their new version, AlphaGo Zero, not only taught itself to play, but was able to beat the old AlphaGo 100:0.Where AI fails is in generating novel ideas, thinking in abstract concepts and providing overall direction. If you spend your career following the rules and doing repetitive tasks, you're going to be replaceable. Instead, focus on bringing forward new ideas, setting direction and collaborating with others on big-picture work; machines won't be able to touch you for many years.Build relationships.Even if they can mimic it, machines don't have empathy. They don't have personalities, and they can't build relationships. If your bosses can replace you with a machine, they still may not want to if it means sacrificing you, the person, in that role. If your role depends on your ability to connect with other people (such as in sales or HR), you may not be replaceable at all. Accordingly, you should spend significant time improving your relationship-building and relationship management skills, which machines don't currently have the capacity to master.Learn to adapt.Finally, and most importantly, be prepared to adapt. Though high-level projections anticipate jobs being "replaced" by AI, it's more likely that they'll be displaced or augmented. Instead of your bosses firing you and putting a machine in your place, they'll probably promote you and put you in charge of operating the machine that did what you used to do.Of course, not everyone will be cut out for this transformation. Some people will be reluctant to change, others will have a hard time learning the new technology. If you want to survive in the job market, you need to be better than that. You need to be flexible and roll with the punches. Learn everything you can about the new tech in your industry and stay open to multiple career options.Are the machines coming for your job? Almost certainly -- but that's no reason to fear. Machines will probably take your job, or at least make the attempt, but that just means you can transform your job, work alongside the machines or find a new role entirely.The term "luddite," now used to refer to someone reluctant to accept new technology, originally referred to English textile workers who were afraid that weaving machines would take their jobs. In retrospect, those fears of a now-primitive technological advancement seem ludicrous. Perhaps, a few decades from now, we'll feel the same way about the AI revolution.Source:https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/303457Statistics: Posted Posted by Kazrem — Sat Nov 18, 2017 2:40 pm […]

      • Entrepreneurs • 3 Tips to Work a Full-Time Job and Be an Entrepreneur
        Posted by Kazrem on November 16, 2017 at 04:38

        Are you working a nine to five, but feel your entrepreneurial spirit starting to break through to the surface? It’s okay to want to get off the current road you’re on and change directions.Very few companies that found incredible success today were started by people who had no other commitments. Rather they were built in basements and garages…. and more importantly, while the founder was still employed and hard at work at another company.1) Start Thinking of Your Job as a BlessingKnow that your job is not some dead weight holding you back. Your job is the gasoline that will keep your entrepreneurial dreams and spirits alive and thriving while you are building your side project.Where would you be without that paycheck? You’d be out there spending all your time trying to raise the money you need, rather than spending your precious time perfecting your business venture. So please, do yourself a favor and stop thinking of your job as something that is dragging you down. Instead, think of your nine to five as your partner that is holding you up until the time is right to shut the door.2. Start Maximizing Your TimeOf course, that nine to five does have a great disadvantage, being that it’s 40 hours of time you’re spending working on something else that is not your number-one priority.There are 168 hours in a week. Your job takes up 40, your sleep takes up 56, and you are still left with 72 hours to do as you wish. Meaning you have 72 hours to build your business.Of course, you have other obligations. I know. I get it. You need food. You need to take care of your kids. However, you don’t need Netflix. You don’t need CNN. You don’t need to check Instagram or Facebook every hour.Find ways to maximize your time. Whether it’s waking up an hour earlier or staying up an hour later. Maybe less meals at a restaurant and more prepped meals at home.It’s time to start asking yourself, “How can I manage the abundance of free time I have better?”3. Use Your Job As FuelPeak performance is predicated upon an intense reason to perform. You quite possibly could hate your job, and that’s not a bad thing! Use that as your fuel, your kick in the rear to motivate yourself to operate at your peak performance.When that annoying alarm clock goes off two hours earlier than usual — use your job as the fuel to jump out of bed.When you find yourself plagued with writer’s block and can’t decide what to write next — use your job as the fuel to keep writing.When you feel the fear, and you don’t want to make that important sales call — use your job as the fuel to overcome your fear.Whatever you need to accomplish for your business venture to drive forward, use your day job as the motivation to push through.Source: http://richdadadvisors.com/blog/3-tips- ... 41d8f27a55Statistics: Posted Posted by Kazrem — Thu Nov 16, 2017 5:38 am […]
