  1. Learning specialist advice: Don't lecture. Of all the teaching methods, lecturing results in the worst quality of learning and the worst grades. The reason is as you'd expect from your own experiences as a student: it's passive, requires minimal engagement, and note-taking is a poor way to study/ learn. Don't lecture. Instead, have students engage with the material in meaningful ways. Tell stories of how theories came to be (the scientist's struggles, his trials and errors, then his solutions), not explain the theory. The story provides the background info for students to come to their own conclusion. It gets them to think. Test them repeatedly, often, multiple times on the same material. This can be done simply by asking questions. (E.g. cognitive psychology is the study of cognition. What is cognitive psychology? ... What's cognition?) This doesn't need to be graded. The key neurological mechanism for this is recall, which is what's vital for learning. The more often they recall accurately, the better their learning. The benefit is that students feel they've accomplished something which gives them motivation to want to learn more. Unfortunately, this kind of teaching is incredibly rare. Maybe you'll be one of the few who can use this to good results. ...... added to this post 5 minutes later: We had a professor who came to class drunk or high. He hated teaching. He was also the conductor of the school symphony and after concerts at the reception, he would get drunk and grope the violinists. There were rumors he was sleeping with some of the students. Before he left, he pissed on the door of a colleague. The yellow puddle creeped under the door and into the office. The colleague wondered what it was so he opened the door and saw him with his dick out.
  2. "Be yourself" is the term created for ppl who don't like themselves. If you don't like yourself, you'll alter your behavior and become disingenuous. Fake. And in long-term relationships, fake doesn't work.
  3. The color changing LED bulbs contain the different color LEDs: red, green, and blue. When all are on, white light results, just like on your computer or smart phone screen. You can go to eBay and buy cheap RGB light strips for about $10 and program it to turn on just the blue LEDs. It's much higher in intensity bc of the higher number of diodes. It should work much better than the single color changing bulb. The best part of the light strips is that you can line the walls in your bedroom to light up in disco colors for fun or put on a timer to turn in just the blue LEDs in the morning.
  4. Just don't have kids if it helps you get a girl. Otherwise, they could be short. ...... added to this post 1 minute later: It's like plastic surgery. You may be beautiful but your children will be butthurt like you were before.
  5. I think OP is worried about the pain as I would be. So you're all saying it doesn't hurt? I mean, it is literally destroying and removing a nerve. PAIN!!!
  6. Buy blue LEDs instead. Cheaper and likely more effective. I feel down when the days grow gray. Sunlight helps a lot to improve my mood. Otherwise, I'm depressed, especially in the winter time. I don't know if it's bc of the lack of sunlight or the gray mood.
  7. I've seen that tactic at work a few times. They all ultimately failed bc once they established command they didn't change the tactic. Since you are leading the class, once you establish order, change your behavior to the one you expect from them. If you want them to show respect towards each other (and yourself), you must change your behavior to show this. Be a dick the beginning but kind afterward.
  8. Yes, I learned almost all of my skills by interacting with students from very low income schools. I learned almost nothing at affluent ones. Affluent schools have students who are too polite to tell you when you screw up. So what preceded this person wanting to fight you? Sometimes, these kinds of behaviors are designed to avoid doing anything; they are really scared of showing their stupidity. Do you say to them? "How are you?" "Did you have a good weekend?" "Have a good weekend!" I've learned that these are incredibly powerful words bc no one ever says things like that to them. It shows you care. This was how I was able to get students in class (on time) and calmed down bc they felt safe in my presence. This was just a first step. Other teachers never figured it out. They eventually transferred schools and districts or quit just to avoid having to deal with the realities. What was your lesson about? Did you have a quick hook to get their attention? Did you rehearse and edit/revise what you were going to say beforehand? Making them feel successful early on by drawing from their own experiences helps a lot.
  9. Place pillow on top of her face. Hold pillow firmly down. Exert pressure until snoring stops. If she struggles, is a sign that the method is working. Maintain pressure until all body movement ceases. Done. This method is effective 100% of the time and is not necessary to reapply if successful.
  10. You are projecting. You're also easy to bait. I've asked you more than just via PM. Coward x8 confirmed. Trying for Coward x9?
  11. Ask the interviewee to demonstrate the job. Inform him of this beforehand. That will tell you a lot, far more than any question you ask.
  12. Make sure they are learning. If they are, it virtually eliminates all behavioral or disciplinary problems. They'll even enjoy the class even if they dread the material. Quiz/test frequently. It doesn't have to be graded but it helps them recall the information they've learned. This can be done orally or on paper. Whatever you do, please don't engage in testing behaviors that induce testing anxiety, e.g. emphasizing "this is for a grade" or mentioning that they should get good grades. Instead, make it a point that quizzing or testing is to help them recall the material they've memorized. Examen them repeatedly on the same material until they are accurate and competent. Know the distinction between knowledge (information) and understanding. (Most teachers don't even know there is such a distinction. They think you can understand things you have no knowledge of.) Understanding can only occur after knowledge is acquired. Understanding requires thinking, a labor intensive task, so set aside time in class specifically for thinking about the information they've acquired. Something that is very difficult to do in a classroom is to apply what you've learned and knowledge and understanding is useless unless it can be applied. Otherwise, it will be forgotten. So find a way for students to apply what they've learned. Use real events or situations that they will encounter IRL. If they are successfully able to apply it, they will often retain it for life. Me, I'm a learning specialist.
  13. You either have bad memory or are lying. I know which of the two it is. It was accessible to anyone, no link required. The ball is still in your court as you still have ignored my many PMs. Coward x7. And if you bother to reply, we know how that ends. Coward x8.
  14. I first heard this piece via internet steam, no visual. I didn't think much of what I heard. Then a couple of years later is when i first saw it performed, the video above. I didn't learn the effortless technique from this video. I just realized the idea that piano playing is easy. I learned some of the technique by learning how to play this piece. That's when I discovered that how you move your body has a direct effect on something being easy or difficult. Hamelin's technique is not what I consider effortless now that I've learned a lot more about how to incorporate many parts of the body to make it easy. He relies a bit too much on his fingers to play. I stand by my statement that at this level, more practice does not equate to better performance, technically speaking.
  15. That's the same with the piano, violin, flute. Only apply the minimum amount of pressure and no more. But you said the issue is with golf elbow. None of the finger tendons extend beyond the elbow.
