7 Speed Reading Review Tips and Advice

7 Speed Reading Review

Many students are faced with a challenge of reading several pages before they feel tired or asleep. Some professionals who want to advance their education find it difficult to concentrate especially if they have other duties to attend to. Learning how to fast read is the key to achieving your goals in whatever you are studying. However, speed reading does not just happen; it requires efforts and some other factors. Based off of the many 7 Speed Reading Review online, it seems like it will be a great software.  The following are some tips that can enable you achieve your academic goals despite having challenges:

The posture – Every reader should know that reading is skill that involves thinking. So you must set an environment that will alert the mind. For instance, if you are reading while lying on the couch or bed, it is very easy to fall asleep because the mind assumes it’s time to sleep. You need to sit in a position which tells the brain that it’s time to read.

Get moving – You need to move your eyes very fast. Stopping your eyes at one word will make your mind relax; and thus, you will be unable to speed read. However, moving your eyes with speed may not bring a positive effect; you need to teach your mind how to comprehend or respond to the word.

Move faster – As you continue to read, increase the speed not forgetting to focus on the meaning of the print. Remember reading is all about thinking; so you must always keep the mind under control and try to see if you understand whatever is in the text.

Set the time – You need to set the time which you feel comfortable to read. Those people who schedule to read after work find it difficult as their mind is already occupied. Morning hours are the best as the mind is still fresh and it can absorb a lot of information.

Set the limit – Reading the text as if its urgent will enable your mind focus on the content and in this case, you will be able to understand more. Many of the best speed reading software advise this technique.

Good lighting – In case you are reading electronically, the background light should be dim, but the screen should be brighter.

Use the right brain fuel  – Many people get some food or snacks once they feel sleepy. Although you may pick up, it will not be too long before you fall asleep once the energy begins to burn off. Drinking some juice or taking fruits will do you better especially if combined with some proteins?

Value Education

There are many things in life that I care about, but there few things that I get passionate about enough to write about to people I don’t know. One of the things that I just cannot talk enough about is education. I believe that everyone who lives in the West needs to understand the absolute privilege and value of education.

I became passionate about education when I lived next to a family growing up whose children did not attend school. I have no idea the reasons why or even the legal ramifications of the situation, I just know that they did not go and that they never learned how to read or write. I remember feeling really sad about this even as a little girl. Sad because I did not understand why I got to attend school and learn all these things when they couldn’t. And sad because I knew somehow that their lives would be very different than mine because they did not have the opportunity for an education.

I have continued to be passionate about education because I have a deep belief that education is the primary thing that leads to freedom in the lives of people, families and even nations. If you think about it, many of the choices you make each day would not be in your life if you hadn’t had the education that has given you the abilities you have. For example, take reading alone. What would your life look like if you were unable to read? Pretty different, huh? It is the education you’ve had that has taught you to read and hence opened up an entire arena of possibility for your life.

What does this mean for you? Well, if you’re reading this article than the chances are that you’ve had the privilege of an education and that you are able to work. It also means that you need to take that privilege seriously and use it wisely. Think about ways of continuing to learn. If you aren’t a reader, then that is my first suggestion: become one. Become a person who enjoys the privilege of education by reading and learning all you can.

Another great way that you can use your education to impact other people is to teach them. See what programs exist at local schools and get involved with helping children in their earliest years of education. See what kind of impact you can make on lives simply because you have had the gift of an education. Education is far too costly a gift to be taken lightly or wasted.

Education And Development

A Preschool education is an incredibly important part of children’ s lives, as it is the first basic educational experience that they will have, and the first truly social setting and experience that they will have as well. Children are very susceptible to learning in their first few years of life, so it is so important that they have the most enjoyable experience that they can in this regards. So, finding the best preschool for your child is imperative.

Children between the ages of three and five are ready to learn. Curiosity is high in this age group and pre-schools meet the needs of the child. If the child’s inner curiosity is not met with activities and answers, it could possibly diminish his or her future academic performance.

Children in this age group have a wide range of interests. If these interests are discovered and encouraged at a young age, it will lay the groundwork for a love of learning. For instance, a child who has a love for scribbling and is encouraged will generally learn to write earlier than other children.

Children who are enrolled in pre-school learn the importance of character through the praise and encouragement they receive through displaying hard work and responsibility. This leads to positive self worth, as well as fostering good study skills, in a child.

It is vital to prepare your toddler for the transition to preschool. You should start preparing 3 months in advance. This is a big step for your child and you want it to be a positive experience. Parents who have to leave their children in a preschool center are always tortured by the dilemma of whether they chose the right one or not for their little ones. But in most cases it is really just guilt over leaving the child. If you did your homework, spoke to friends or neighbors that may have had children attend the school with positive results, then don’t worry. Remember, the children need this preschool education experience, it is a necessary stage of development.

Education Fund

It is possible to pay for college with a federal student loan. This is usually referred to as post-secondary financing option.

Applying for a Federal Student Loan for College is quite simple providing you follow the instructions on the application form.

The federal student loan program helps college students and their parents meet the cost of pursuing higher education. The first thing a student (or prospective student) needs to do is to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form. It is available online or from the Financial Aid Office at post-secondary institutions.

The application is free and a student will not qualify for a federal student loan for college unless this application has been submitted. Within 30 days after submitting the FAFSA application, the student will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail. A copy of the SAR is sent to the school the student is planning on attending.

Within two weeks after the SAR is received, the student will receive a letter from the Financial Aid Office of the school he or she is planning on attending. This letter will state how much financial aid the student will receive and how this financial assistance will be structured.

The award letter will indicate whether or not the student has been awarded the Stafford Federal Student Loan for college. If the Stafford Loan has been awarded, the student must fill out an application form in order to get the required promissory note. The student then signs the promissory note in order to receive the loan proceeds.

Once the promissory note is signed, it must be mailed to the office listed on the application form. It is a good idea to keep a copy of the promissory note for your own records. Stafford Loan recipients need to keep in mind that the funding offered is for one year only. A new FAFSA and loan application must be submitted each year.

If a student was not awarded a Stafford Student Loan, alternative sources of financing for college are available. It is possible to get financing for post-secondary studies from private sources. In the case of a person who gets approval for a Federal Student Loan for college but the amount of the loan is short of the amount of funding needed, this is a viable option. A private student loan center will be able to provide assistance to those people looking for alternate sources of financing for post-secondary education.

Children S Education

There has been considerable discussion about the separation of Church and State. A fine line has been drawn between the education options open to parents who want their children to be trained under the guidelines set by the locally recognized school system qualifications but allow the students to be educated in a church school environment instead of the over-crowded conditions found in the public school system.

The curriculum offered in the Christian education programs for children that attend private schools is very similar to that offered in the public school system. There are many additions though, that make attending school in a Christian environment very appealing to parents. Students are afforded an education that is more personable and complete. Christian school teachers find the time to cover a broad spectrum of courses and some of those courses are not available through the public schools.

The Bible is a standard textbook at a private school operated by Christian church organizations. The basic teachings of the Bible are included in the day to day operations at the school and teachers rarely worry about drugs or guns being present in the classroom or on the school campus. Children learn in classrooms that are cool and comfortable in the summer months and warm in the winter.

Private schools can operate on a religious program that is not endorsed by State law. The bare mention of God is prohibited in the public school system and the Ten Commandments have been removed from Government buildings. Children are free to discuss religion and learn about the history of the world through the teachings that are written in the Bible.

A Christian school education offers children the opportunity to participate in sports programs that are very competitive and many students earn scholarships for college through the excellence of their participation in these sports. The children receive a well-rounded education that includes academics, cultural and arts programs in the curriculum that is offered.

A Christian education path allows students to join bands and participate in band competitions. There are also opportunities for children to take piano classes from teachers who are at the top of their field in the musical world. The Christian choral groups learn to raise their voices high to promote and praise God for the glory of being alive and loved. Parents place their trust in the Christian school programs and they are never let down in any way.

Online Continuing Education

As the world continues to get more complex, careers are becoming more specialized and require continuing education credits to remain in good standing. This is especially true in the medical fields although many professions and professional organizations also demand their members to continue to develop the skills necessary for today’s changing environments.

Almost any field of study that takes a great deal of study to become a recognized member will require continuing education. From engineering, medical nurses and doctors, respiratory therapists, quality managers and many others all are expected to maintain a level of education consistent with the field of knowledge. The reason behind this is to have professionals who have not only maintained but also developed and learned new techniques and skill sets. This is critical in much of the more complex business world.

Quality engineers and managers focus on competence and techniques that not only allow for the lowest cost products to be developed but also understand the trade-offs between cost and quality.

CPA’s or certified public accountants, need to keep up with the latest laws and be up to date with many of the sometimes arcane accounting principles. Teachers and nursing are two other fields that also require continuing education to remain active in the profession.

Although a good education in many of the professional fields can provide a solid understanding of the industry no matter if it be financial, medical, industrial, or scientific. Ongoing competence in any of these fields however requires an ongoing process of continuing education. Continuing education is necessary for the professional to remain up to date with the latest techniques and knowledge base in the field of study.

Typically continuing education translates into a certain number of course credit hours for the professional every so many years. These additional education credits are sometimes mandatory when renewing government controlled certifications like a teaching certificate. Although some groups do not make the ongoing educational process mandatory, almost all provide an opportunity to obtain the educational credits through sponsored classes, seminars, and online “CBT” or computer based training.

In order to stay professional and remain in good standing wit many of the recognized professional organizations ongoing continuing education is critical for a professional career. The small investment in additional training can go a long way to keeping skills fresh and increasing the competence level of any professional.

Help Kids To Read

If reading those confusing and wordy inserts that come with prescription medications has been a hard pill to swallow, there’s good news. A recent Food and Drug Administration law is going to make this information easier for consumers to read and understand.

According to the Partnership for Clear Health Communication, this law is a big step toward improving information about medications. The Partnership for Clear Health Communication is a national, non-profit coalition working to build awareness and advance solutions to improve health literacy (the ability to read, understand and act on health information) and positively impact health outcomes.

The new labels include information on when and how to take the medicine; how it works in the body; and what you should do if you experience any side effects.

Patients who understand this information may be more likely to take their medications correctly, which may lead to better health outcomes. Even with the new prescription inserts, which will be phased in over the next seven years, many people will still have questions about why and how to take their medications. The Partnership says that the most important thing you can do for your health is to ask questions-to your doctor, nurse and pharmacist. Your health care providers want you to ask questions. Why? Because they know that if you really understand your medical condition, you will be more likely to follow their instructions and keep yourself healthy.

Special Education

Your dog deserves the best training possible and finding the right dog trainer is important. But, where do you find the best candidates for the job?

Your dog is not just a pet, he or she is a member of your family and, just as you do with other members of your family, you want to make sure your dog receives the best education.

Of course, a dog training facility is important, but the key to good training is the trainer.

Choosing the right trainer is not only better for your dog, but it is also better for you. Good trainers don’t just get your dog to do a few “tricks”, they teach your dog how to learn, which results in a happier, more confident dog. You benefit from the sense of pride that comes with having a well trained pet by your side.

It all sounds easy enough, but how do you find the best dog trainer? There are no hard and fast rules, and often there’s a bit of luck involved, but you can take a few steps to make your search a little easier.

Fortunately, there are professional dog trainer associations and they are a good place to start. Many trainers have taken the time to become certified and an association can put you in contact with certified professionals in your area.

Your veterinarian or groomer can be a good source of information. They know your dog and are in a good position to recommend a trainer with the right fit for your particular needs.

Of course, it never hurts to talk to family, friends and neighbours about their experiences with dog trainers.

No matter how you go about finding a trainer, you need to talk to the potential candidates and find out for yourself which ones you feel will be best able to train your dog. Ask about the trainer’s certifications and membership in professional associations. Find out if they are involved in any continuing education for dog trainers. Perhaps most importantly, you need to have a comfort level with the trainer so you can work together for the benefit of your dog.

The certified dog trainers at Alpha Paws have the experience and knowledge to answer your questions, make recommendations and keep you informed about your dog’s needs and progress.

This is a review about the opportunity at,

http://www. clickingz. com/fastmoney

There you are taught a way to raise a big amount of money in a very short time. I’ll explain it here how its done, in short.

First, you make a report with a big promise. For example,

“Your Acne disappears in 3 days or your money it totally back”

“Claim Free Airline Tickets or Your Money Back” (For example, I have a book at http://www. clickingz. com/travel , and I can change its structure to reflect this system)

Then, you sell that report with a big promise at a very affordable price, which your customers cannot miss – for about $5.

This is exactly what is done at http://www. clickingz. com/fastmoney and it teaches you how to do the same. As a bonus, you can sell this report itself once you buy it and everytime a sale is made, you get instant payment (full payment) of $5 to your paypal account. No hosting or any hassle, once you buy the report, you’ll be given a link to promote this report itself and you are paid 100% for every sale.

Realistically, even if you buy the report and just resell it for 4 people quickly, you would have made a 400% ROI.

For more info, you can read http://www. Clickingz. com/fastmoney

You will also be explained about how to implement this system successfully.

English Reading For Kids

The different sounds that the letter”d” takes at the end of a verb in the past tense

An extract from the book: Word Power by the author of this article.

The English language indicates that the action of the verb is in the past by having some form of the “d” or “t” sound end the word. We say some kind of “d” or “t” sound although the word is almost always written with a “d”.

Many people who learn English are so confused by the irregular forms of the verbs that they give up and invent their own ways of referring to the past. Some say: “Yesterday I walk to work” or other ways to avoid using the past tense that they have never learned.

Sure, there are irregular words in English. The past of teach is taught; the past of buy is bought; the past of think is thought. But even these irregular words end in some kind of a “t” sound to indicate that the verb refers to the past. Luckily, there aren’t too many of these irregular verbs. You just have to learn them. The good thing is that they behave more or less the same way.

But let’s look at the regular verbs. Most English verbs are regular. To indicate the past, they put some kind of a sound made with the tongue touching the back of the upper teeth. Almost always it is the sound of a “d” or of a “t”.

The ending of the verb “love” in the past: “I loved the movie” is very different from the ending of the verb “walk”: “I walked to work. ” When it sounds like the letter “d”, it is a voiced sound, that is the vocal cords vibrate. When it sounds like a “t”, it is a voiceless or an unvoiced sound.

But how do you know when it should end with a voiced “d” sound and when with a voiceless “t” sound? Although you may not believe it, there is a “rule” that will help you to form the past of most English verbs. You may still make some mistakes but little by little you will feel the mistakes and will correct them. The structure of your mouth will force you to make the right sound.

The “rule” for the formation of the past is similar to the “rule” for the “s” at the end of plural nouns and verbs in the third person singlular of the present tense.
The rule of the “d” in three parts:

There is a one simple “rule” that covers the pronunciation of the “d” and “t” sounds.

The sound that indicates the past of the verb is the voiceless “t” sound when the verb ends in a voiceless consonant. On the other hand, the indication of the past is the voiced “d” sound when the verb ends in a voiced consonant.

The three parts of the rule are:

1. the voiceless “t” sound,
2. the voiced “d” sound,
3. the added syllable.

1. The voiceless (unvoiced) “t”:

The “rule” tells us when the last sound of a verb is is like that of the words talk, cap, mess, etc (that is, a voiceless sound), the past of the verb ends with a voiceless (or unvoiced) sound like that of the word walked. The past of these verbs is talked, capped, messed and the “d” is unvoiced.

For example the letter “d” that represents the past in the written word is pronounced like the “t” of Tom (a voiceless sound) when the verb ends in a voiceless sound. So when the verb ends in voiceless sounds such as the letters k in the word looked, p in the word stopped, f in the word cuffed (or gh in the word laughed) the past is indicated by the voiceless “t” sound. This always happens so don’t be fooled by the written letter “d”.

The past tense of the verb is also indicated by a voiceless sound when the verb ends in any “hissing” sound such as the words: face, wash, crunch. All these sounds are voiceless so the verbs that end with them will always have the “d” of their past form sounded voicelessly and therefore become the forms faced, washed, crunched.

It is important to note that although the voiceless “d” is written “ed”, you do NOT add a syllable to the original word.

2. The voiced “d”:

The “d” is voiced in two situations:

a. when the word ends in a vowel sound such as, played, teed, owed, cued.

The “strange” vowels are also followed by a voiced “d” such as in the words: furred, papered, pawed. The past of verbs ending in a diphthong sound also end in a voiced “d” sound, for example in the words: plowed, paid, toyed .

b. when the word ends in a voiced consonant.

Some examples of the second case are: b as in the word robbed, n in the word drowned, l in the word mailed, g in the word logged, v in the word heaved, m n the word farmed, n as in the word panned, thesoundof the letters ng as in the word ring, r as in the word cars, v as in the word stoves, and thin the word bathed.

Remember that that the voiced “d” sound forms the past of verbs that end in a voiced consonant, for example, burned is the past of the verb burn and lovedis the past of love.

It is important to note that although the voiced “d” in these words is written with “ed”, you do NOT add an extra syllable.

3. The added syllable

In both cases, when the verb ends in either the sound of the voiced “d” or the sound of the voiceless “t”, the English language adds a syllable to the verb.

For example, the verbs in the present tense visit, vote, side, need, plant, adopt, add “ed” to make the past tense and become visited, voted, sided, needed, planted, adopted.

The “ed” is pronounced with a special vowel followed by a voiced “d”. The special vowel is the “short i” which has the IPA symbol of the small capital “i”. We treat this sound in the book in the chapter on the short vowels. Remember a ship is not a sheep. You have to be able to hear the difference to be able to use this vowel in the added syllable.

It is only in this special case that you pronounce the second syllable of the past of a verb. Not all verbs have two syllables in the past. It is important that you realize that most common English verbs have only one syllable. Do not think that you have to pronounce the “ed” of the words such as walked, talked, played, tuned, tooled. Do not read these words as they were written in your language.

Although many verbs have “ed” in their past, it is just a strange note of English spelling. You often only pronounce one syllable with the past indicated by a voiced “d” or an unvoiced “t” according to which sound preceded the ending.

You only pronounce the “ed” when the root form of the verb ends with your tongue touching the back of your teeth, either with a voiced “d” sound or with an unvoiced “t” sound. For example, “Today, I heat the coffee but yesterday I heated it” (2 syllables because the last consonant is a “t”). But, “Today I talk to my friend but yesterday I talked on the phone. ” (one syllable because the last consonant is not a “t” or a “d”)

The extra syllable: Listen to this as often as necessary for you to be able to distinguish the unvoiced “t” from the voiced “d”.

Review and practice all parts of the “RULE”!
The first part of the “rule”: the voiceless “t”;
The second part of the “rule”: the voiced “d” :
The third part of the “rule”: the added syllable

Learn to use search engine optimization techniques when writing your articles. If hiring a writer to write articles for you, you can choose one who already knows about SEO or you can supply them with a list of keywords and let them know where they should be placed and how many times they should be repeated throughout the article. Optimizing your articles for search engines will help them rank higher when someone searches for a keyword relating to your subject, which means that you will receive more visitors because more people will actually see your URL. It is a fact that most visitors don’t look past the first search engine result page and by the third search engine results page there is practically no audience left for you to promote to. What this means for those on the third or high page is no traffic. This is why it is very important for you to make sure that your articles are prepared in a way that will eventually get them to that first or second search engine results page.
