Books, Confused, and Music: HOW TO GET BETTER AT LISTENING COMPREHENSION by rhubarbstudies Listening comprehension: is a huge part of learning (and speaking) any language 1. It's about discrimination; isolating sounds and words while you practice 2. Pronunciation and comprehension go hand-in-hand. As 3. Listen with prejudice: listen for certain words, certain information. one improves, so does the other Best practice: Listen to your target language often: 5 hours/week in class is a good start. Watching shows or listening to music in your target language is a enough to significantly improve your understanding of the language Strategies and tips for improvement Music: listen to music and read the words at the same time. The goal is to start training your brain to recognize the letters that go with the sounds. The better you get, the more you'll be able to understand the words when vou hear them without text. Read out loud: just like when you learned your first language, reading aloud in your target language is a basic way to advance your comprehension. Use your book: its more than likely that your textbook has a section on listening, so use it Dare to mispronounce: use the words often and out loud. The more familiar y uth muscles become with making the sounds, the better you will get at interpreting them. → Repetition: if you have listening exercises, repeat those over and over again. The more you use them, the better you'll get. HOW TO STUDY GRAMMAR by rhubarbstudies Grammar: is the nuts and bolts of language Best practice: Nightly review: good, organized notes & repetition for mechanical proficiency. Think of grammar as the moving pieces of lanquage. It's flexible. There is rarely one right way to say something Study strategies for grammar (choose as needed) → Examples, examples, examples: write copious examples in your notes: the more ways you see things done, the clearer the pattern is. → Look for patterns: most grammar is very clean, there are rules and the the grammar will follow them in organized ways. When you notice a pattern, write it down, draw arrows and cartoons and anything else that helps you remember. → Become familiar with the parts of speech: (in all languages) and what they do. These are the building blocks of al language, and there are only seven. For conjugations: practice new forms immediately. If you get them into memory, you'll never think about them again, and you'll always have them ready Montessori shapes: associate different elements of a sentence with shapes and colors. Use whatever you can to help features stand out. → Translate this is the old school method. The more connections you forge between you current language and your target language, the easier the target language is to understand. Grammar drills: this is boring, but repetition has a huge success rate with grammar. Meet with your teachers: they most likely understand the topic they're teaching, so meeting with them is often the easiest thing you can do HOW TO MEMORIZE VOCABULARY by rhubarbstudies Vocabulary: the meat of the language-acquiring vocabulary is one of the most important parts of study. The goal is to enter it into long-term memory (saving you work down the road) Best practice: Nightly review: no more than 5 minutes. Flashcards are the most efficient method Other methods for working with vocabulary (choose as needed) ord groups: create charts if words grouped together that are similar, the more associations between words, the easier they are to recall Pictures: associate new words with both images and definitions. Vocabulary fan: write all the vocab down the side of a piece of paper, then fold it over and write the definitions. Keep doing this until, you have filled the whole page, and the page will be folded into an accordion shape Recopying: some people find success with the traditional way of writing out lists and definitions until you don't need the lists anymore Vocab journal this is what the pros do-keep a notebook purely for vocabulary. Any time you come across a word you've had to look up more than three times, add it to the journal with a definition. Kinetic study: associate movement with words and definitions. Engage your whole body in the topic. Your body helps jog your memory. Interactive notebooks: use foldable (like the vocabulary fan) to make flip books or flip boxes that you paste into a notebook. The more senses you engage, the faster toy can assimilate the new information. Drawing if you have a penchant for art, draw the ideas that come with the words. sing your vocabulary; set it to music that sticks with you. SongES HOW TO GET BETTER AT HOMEWORK by rhubarbstudies Homework is really a necessity in mastering new concepts because it's repetition. Use your book & other resources: if you have a textbook/workbook set, the homework you're doing most likely has corresponding sections. Look up words and anything else you don't know. Understanding the directions and questions is super important to sense of what your practicing Try anyway even if you get confused, try anyway. Giving up will only lead to getting behind and more confusion down the line identifying what you don't know is hugely helpful write questions in the margins of your homework/book so that you can remember them in class for next time or look them up on your own. Ask for help your teachers are most likely easy to contact and willing to give you homeworlk support or a quick meeting to clarify things. Keep up with your work and engage in class: if you work out of your workbook/textbook a lot, your quizzes and tests will most likely reflect your books. Keep them up to date. Correct wrong answers and use the books together rhubarbstudies: [5/27/17] My French teacher gave us these tips for studying a new language, so I typed them up for you guys!

Apparently, Children, and Christmas: awkward. @howtobeprada imagine if you called the wrong number and "mom?" "no this is Morgan freeman" Reply Retweet Favorite voroxpete: arctic-hands: therobotmonster: kuroba101: prismatic-bell: HERE’S THE THING THOUGH I used to work for a call center and I was doing a political survey and I called this number that was randomly generated for me and the way our system worked was voice-activated so when the other person said hello you’d get connected to them, so I just launch right into my “Harvard University and NPR blah blah blah” thing and then there’s this long pause and I think the person’s hung up even though I didn’t hear a click And then I hear “you shouldn’t be able to call this number.” So I apologize and go into the preset spiel about because we aren’t selling anything, etc. etc. and the answer I get is “No, I know that. What I mean is that it should be impossible for you to call this number, and I need to know how you got it.” I explain that it’s randomly generated and I’m very sorry for bothering him, and go to hang up. And before I can click terminate, I hear: “Ma’am, this is a matter of national security.” I accidentally called the director of the FBI. My job got investigated because a computer randomly spit out a number to the Pentagon. This is my new favourite story. When I was in college I got a job working for a company that manages major air-travel data. It was a temp gig working their out of date system while they moved over to a new one, since my knowing MS Dos apparently made me qualified. There was no MS Dos involved. Instead, there was a proprietary type-based OS and an actually-uses-transistors refrigerator-sized computer with switches I had to trip at certain times during the night as I watched the data flow from six pm to six AM on Fridays and weekends. If things got stuck, I reset the server.  The company handled everything from low-end data (hotel and car reservations) to flight plans and tower information. I was weighed every time I came in to make sure it was me. Areas of the building had retina scanners on doors.  During training. they took us through all the procedures. Including the procedures for the red phone. There was, literally, a red phone on the shelf above my desk. “This is a holdover from the cold war.” They said. “It isn’t going to come up, but here’s the deal. In case of nuclear war or other nation-wide disaster, the phone will ring. Pick up the phone, state your name and station, and await instructions. Do whatever you are told.” So my third night there, it’s around 2am and there’s a ringing sound.  I look up, slowly. The Red phone is ringing. So I reach out, I pick up the phone. I give my name and station number. And I hear every station head in the building do the exact same. One after another, voices giving names and numbers. Then silence for the space of two breaths. Silence broken by… “Uh… Is Shantavia there?” It turns out that every toll free, 1-900 or priority number has a corresponding local number that it routs to at its actual destination. Some poor teenage girl was trying to dial a friend of hers, mixed up the numbers, and got the atomic attack alert line for a major air-travel corporation’s command center in the mid-west United States. There’s another pause, and the guys over in the main data room are cracking up. The overnight site head is saying “I think you have the wrong number, ma’am.” and I’m standing there having faced the specter of nuclear annihilation before I was old enough to legally drink. The red phone never rang again while I was there, so the people doing my training were only slightly wrong in their estimation of how often the doomsday phone would ring.  Every time I try to find this story, I end up having to search google with a variety of terms that I’m sure have gotten me flagged by some watchlist, so I’m reblogging it again where I swear I’ve reblogged it before. But none of these stories even come close to the best one of them all; a wrong number is how the NORAD Santa Tracker got started. Seriously, this is legit. In December 1955, Sears decided to run a Santa hotline.  Here’s the ad they posted. Only problem is, they misprinted the number.  And the number they printed?  It went straight through to fucking NORAD.  This was in the middle of the Cold War, when early warning radar was the only thing keeping nuclear annihilation at bay.  NORAD was the front line. And it wasn’t just any number at NORAD.  Oh no no no. Terri remembers her dad had two phones on his desk, including a red one. “Only a four-star general at the Pentagon and my dad had the number,” she says. “This was the ‘50s, this was the Cold War, and he would have been the first one to know if there was an attack on the United States,” Rick says. The red phone rang one day in December 1955, and Shoup answered it, Pam says. “And then there was a small voice that just asked, ‘Is this Santa Claus?’ ” His children remember Shoup as straight-laced and disciplined, and he was annoyed and upset by the call and thought it was a joke — but then, Terri says, the little voice started crying. “And Dad realized that it wasn’t a joke,” her sister says. “So he talked to him, ho-ho-ho’d and asked if he had been a good boy and, ‘May I talk to your mother?’ And the mother got on and said, ‘You haven’t seen the paper yet? There’s a phone number to call Santa. It’s in the Sears ad.’ Dad looked it up, and there it was, his red phone number. And they had children calling one after another, so he put a couple of airmen on the phones to act like Santa Claus.” “It got to be a big joke at the command center. You know, ‘The old man’s really flipped his lid this time. We’re answering Santa calls,’ ” Terri says. And then, it got better. “The airmen had this big glass board with the United States on it and Canada, and when airplanes would come in they would track them,” Pam says. “And Christmas Eve of 1955, when Dad walked in, there was a drawing of a sleigh with eight reindeer coming over the North Pole,” Rick says. “Dad said, ‘What is that?’ They say, ‘Colonel, we’re sorry. We were just making a joke. Do you want us to take that down?’ Dad looked at it for a while, and next thing you know, Dad had called the radio station and had said, ‘This is the commander at the Combat Alert Center, and we have an unidentified flying object. Why, it looks like a sleigh.’ Well, the radio stations would call him like every hour and say, ‘Where’s Santa now?’ ” Terri says. For real. “And later in life he got letters from all over the world, people saying, ‘Thank you, Colonel,’ for having, you know, this sense of humor. And in his 90s, he would carry those letters around with him in a briefcase that had a lock on it like it was top-secret information,” she says. “You know, he was an important guy, but this is the thing he’s known for.” “Yeah,” Rick [his son] says, “it’s probably the thing he was proudest of, too.” So yeah.  I think that might be the best wrong number of all time.

Energy, Fall, and Tumblr: eclecticirony: Fossil Image CC BY-NC 4.0 Autumn Colored Fossil Leaf Who has not seen stunning displays of fall leaves, unless you live at too small or large of a latitude? By late summer, trees have sensed the shortened days, and begin turning off some genes and turning off others, which in turn beginning shutting down photosynthetic energy production. Turning water and carbon dioxide into energy by photosynthesis requires a lot of the green pigment chlorophyll. Essentially, the tree turns off the chlorophyll that is so abundant that most leaves are green during the growing season. As the chlorophyll is used up and not replaced, remaining color pigments always present come to dominate. One of those is beta-Carotene (lower left molecule), the strong orange pigment that makes carrots and pumpkins orange, and your skin orange too if you eat enough carrots and pumpkins.  Hence, the orange in autumn leaves. Fossil leaves are normally brown, though they can be quite detailed showing venation. The fossil leaf above is uncommonly colored, displaying autumn-like colors, but for entirely different reasons than live plants. During fossilization, organic material is replaced with minerals, and the fossil then displays the corresponding mineral colors. The red coloration above is likely due to the presence of iron. The fossil above is a 2 inch long, 50 million year old Eocene elm leaf from the Tranquil Shale in British Columbia, Canada.

Apparently, Click, and College: awkward. @howtobeprada imagine if you called the wrong number and "mom?" "no this is Morgan freeman" Reply Retweet Favorite fun-n-fashion: arctic-hands: therobotmonster: kuroba101: prismatic-bell: HERE’S THE THING THOUGH I used to work for a call center and I was doing a political survey and I called this number that was randomly generated for me and the way our system worked was voice-activated so when the other person said hello you’d get connected to them, so I just launch right into my “Harvard University and NPR blah blah blah” thing and then there’s this long pause and I think the person’s hung up even though I didn’t hear a click And then I hear “you shouldn’t be able to call this number.” So I apologize and go into the preset spiel about because we aren’t selling anything, etc. etc. and the answer I get is “No, I know that. What I mean is that it should be impossible for you to call this number, and I need to know how you got it.” I explain that it’s randomly generated and I’m very sorry for bothering him, and go to hang up. And before I can click terminate, I hear: “Ma’am, this is a matter of national security.” I accidentally called the director of the FBI. My job got investigated because a computer randomly spit out a number to the Pentagon. This is my new favourite story. When I was in college I got a job working for a company that manages major air-travel data. It was a temp gig working their out of date system while they moved over to a new one, since my knowing MS Dos apparently made me qualified. There was no MS Dos involved. Instead, there was a proprietary type-based OS and an actually-uses-transistors refrigerator-sized computer with switches I had to trip at certain times during the night as I watched the data flow from six pm to six AM on Fridays and weekends. If things got stuck, I reset the server.  The company handled everything from low-end data (hotel and car reservations) to flight plans and tower information. I was weighed every time I came in to make sure it was me. Areas of the building had retina scanners on doors.  During training. they took us through all the procedures. Including the procedures for the red phone. There was, literally, a red phone on the shelf above my desk. “This is a holdover from the cold war.” They said. “It isn’t going to come up, but here’s the deal. In case of nuclear war or other nation-wide disaster, the phone will ring. Pick up the phone, state your name and station, and await instructions. Do whatever you are told.” So my third night there, it’s around 2am and there’s a ringing sound.  I look up, slowly. The Red phone is ringing. So I reach out, I pick up the phone. I give my name and station number. And I hear every station head in the building do the exact same. One after another, voices giving names and numbers. Then silence for the space of two breaths. Silence broken by… “Uh… Is Shantavia there?” It turns out that every toll free, 1-900 or priority number has a corresponding local number that it routs to at its actual destination. Some poor teenage girl was trying to dial a friend of hers, mixed up the numbers, and got the atomic attack alert line for a major air-travel corporation’s command center in the mid-west United States. There’s another pause, and the guys over in the main data room are cracking up. The overnight site head is saying “I think you have the wrong number, ma’am.” and I’m standing there having faced the specter of nuclear annihilation before I was old enough to legally drink. The red phone never rang again while I was there, so the people doing my training were only slightly wrong in their estimation of how often the doomsday phone would ring.  Every time I try to find this story, I end up having to search google with a variety of terms that I’m sure have gotten me flagged by some watchlist, so I’m reblogging it again where I swear I’ve reblogged it before. This is how the whole Santa Tracker thing got started with NATO.  Also reminds me of a story.  A dude I once knew has a fancy job in computer security that has him travelling all over the world and one of my favorite stories is how this company (I was not allowed to know the name due to confidentiality clauses but I was assured it was one with strong ties to national security) had a problem where every day their servers would go down at the same time for 15 mins straight and no one could figure out why because everything checked out and it was literally supposed to be impossible for the servers to go down and so they hired him to come have a look at their servers and figure out if they were being hacked or what because according to security logs no one had been in there that shouldn’t be. The security around the server room was ridiculous. Like, he couldn’t even go in the room without the head of security and one of the vice presidents of the company in there with him.  He had to pretty much force them to let him put a small camera, encrypted data  streaming to his laptop,  in the server room overnight and then he wasn’t allowed to leave with his laptop. So he goes in and reviews the footage the next day and at the exact time stamp he has for the footage going down he sees…. The cleaning person unplugging the servers so that they can plug in their vacuum. Fifteen minutes later the vacuuming is done and the servers are up and running again.

Bluetooth, Books, and Harry Potter: REAL LIFE SPELLFIGHTING Harty Potter Before explaining anything. I would like you to know that I'm NOT an engineer, neither a programmer I'm just a concept designer and a Harry Potter fan, so please excuse me if my idea seems somewhat absurd or not possible to realize at all. THE CONCEPT Harry Potter GO is a Real-Time lusl Spell fighting Mobile Game, that uses an external 'Bluetooth Wand' with the app itself, in order to deliver an energetic magic battle between the two wizards/witches. Players have to use offensive and defensive spells in order to win the combat, waving their wands at each other, while the app network keeps tracks of all the action and Magic Stats of both players. Wands should be sold separately, with different styles available but always including a code to connect itself, via Bluetooth, to the owner's phone. As soon as the app is downloaded, installed and the wand is connected to the device, the user has to choose their Nickname, Wizard Gender, Avatar and Hogwart's House. Afier these small steps, the player is now ready to b another wizard or witch within range THE WAND Prototype #1 -Harrys wand Smartuand Concept attery Gestare Sesor Wasd Chip' Mini USB Bineroerb Spel LED Port In order to produce a spell, the first step is to press the Spell Button and wave the wand (differently for cach spell), releasing the button right after the end of the wave. If the user had enough stamina to produce the desired spell, the light on the tip of his wand will glow to the corresponding color of that spell, indicating it was a success. THE APP Payer Niokmense Soven lack Menu Scree Battle Screen THE BATTLE After both players accepe to fight against each other, the Batle Screen pops up in the app of both phones, waiting for the battle to begin. Players then have to stand in front of each other, one hand holding their smartphones and the other holding their wands, straight up, in the front of their faces. Their lights will then lash three times and the battle finally starts, each player with seven life points and enough stamina for a normal spell. Quick guide to spells Each of che offessive spells availlable requires a different wand wave and some scamina of the player in onder to be produced. There are easy spells (less saminal, normal spells (half stamina) and the strong spells (almost all stamina). The defensive speli aso roquires stamina in onder to be peoduced. The anly way to evade an enemy spel is by conjuring the Pratrge (defensive spell) at the right moment-Eail to do so, and the incoming spell will hit yuu, removing on of your life points Smuina regenerates quickly, contrาใuting to a fast paced and energetic combat just like in the books and mowies of the Wizardring World of Harry Potter. Because of the strmine system, plavers cannot produce many spells in a row; as the wand also roquires few seconds eo cooldown. Therefore, knowing each spell and when to use it, is the key to winning che batle and becoming a better wizard or witch. For examplk, if a player conjures a strong spell against his enemy, he remains vulnerable, because he can only defend hiself when the requisred stamuise regenerates back again this shows thae both ciming and feeling are very important so play the game. GAME STATS Life Points are a important aspect of Harry Potter GO, as the winner of each battle is the one who first get his enemy's Life Points to zero. Each player starts every battle with seven points, that are the app- every time a player fails to block an incoming spell, he takes the hit, instantaneously losing i L Point. Differently than Stamina, Life Pain訂 will not regenerate over time, only reseting on the start of a new match. Stamina Bar Stamina is used to produce spells with the wand, and regenerates constantly when the player is in battle. The Stamina Bar' is invisible and cannot be checked on the app, therefore the wizard or witch must always teel" when it's the right time to use cach spell or to hold on and wait for the best moment attack. If a spell fails because of lacking stamina, the wand tip will glow very shortly in a faded white, and the player will need to wait for the wand to cooldown again in order to use it. Wand Cooldown Every time a spell is produced (or failed because of lacking stamina). the wand enters in a Cooltows Mode where it can only produce the defense spell for a very short period of time (1.5-2 sec). That prevents the player to pretend his wand is like an AK-47 and shoot loads of offensive spells one after the other. The cooldown time is also not indicated on the screen or the wand, so just like the Samind, it requires timing and ng of the overall system of the game. FINAL THOUGHTS Although this is just a silly idea created by a semi-autistic depressed guy that never leaves his bedroom, it would indeed be very fun if the project was real. As a Harry Potter fan, I believe this would be the closest way we could ever get to fight with magic, like the characters of J.K. Rowling. I'm very sorry for the long post and for possible English mistakes I've tried my very best to explain the concept for you guys- here's some Potato Wands This is my concept for Harry Potter GO
