Reading as a teenager ensures a better job later in life.

Teenagers who read for pleasure are much more likely to get a better job when they become adults, according to an in-depth and long-running sociological study.
Reading as a teenager gets you a better job. Oxford University academics conducted a study of 17000 people born in May 1970. At the age of 16, in 1986, they were asked which activities they did in their spare time for pleasure. These answers were then checked against the jobs they were doing at the age of 33, in 2003. The researchers found a 39% probability that girls would be in professional or managerial posts at 33 if they had read books at 16, but only a 25% chance if they had not. For boys, the figures rose from 48% to58%. “Obviously reading is in itself a good thing. But we don’t think that is the main reason why they ended up going to university and securing good jobs.” said Mark Taylor of Nuffield College, Oxford. Read more…

Summary of The Luck Factor by Dr Richard Wiseman

Summary of The Luck Factor by Dr Richard Wiseman

The Luck Project was originally conceived to scientifically explore psychological differences between people who considered themselves exceptionally lucky and unlucky. This initial work was funded by The Leverhulme Trust and undertaken by Dr. Richard Wiseman in collaboration with Dr. Matthew Smith and Dr. Peter Harris. To explore the subject more read The Luck Factor’ by Dr. Richard Wiseman available as an ebook.

Dr. Wiseman has since built upon this initial work by identifying the four basic principles used by lucky people to create good fortune in their lives and developing techniques that enable individuals to enhance their own good luck. Unlucky people can become lucky and lucky people can become even luckier. This is one of my favourite books which changed my life.

Kara Tointon and dyslexia: a BBC documentary on dyslexia – Kara Tointon: Don’t Call Me Stupid

Actress Kara Tointon presents a documentary (Kara Tointon: Don’t Call Me Stupid) about dyslexia and meets other dyslexics whose moving stories reveal the impact it can have on young lives without the right support. Interesting story and they offer her a simple solution of wearing coloured glasses for reading which help.

Concentration point for dyslexics – it helps with reading
There are many other ways to help this spectrum of difficulties with  reading – for example a concentration point that seems to help with concentration when reading. This point was originally discovered by John Duns Scotus, a 13th century Franciscan monk and philosopher. He developed the ‘duns cap’ which was worn by children who needed something to help them focus. Later a ‘dunce’s cap’ was used to stigmatise ‘stupid’ children. The concentration point was a key feature of the system developed by Ron Davis (see his book ‘The Gift of Dyslexia’) to help children with dyslexia to read. Focusing on the point of concentration can also open your peripheral vision.

This is how to do it: the point of concentration is about 30 cms above and slightly behind your head (the point of a wizard’s hat).
• touch the top of your head and move your hand back to the concentration point – get a sense of the space, and keep your attention on the point when you take your hand away
• imagine an orange, a melon, a balloon on that point
• focus on your left foot, right knee, left hip, right palm, left elbow, right shoulder – and then the concentration point
Once you have focused on the point, relax and focus on the reading material (you do not have to keep your attention on the point).

NLP Conference – Reader to Speed Reader to Spd Rdr – London 14 November 2010

NLP CONFERENCE
We’re giving a short presentation at the NLP Conference in London on Sunday 14th November, 2010 at 1330 – 1415.  Reader to Speed Reader to Spd Rdr
Many people perceive themselves as slow readers. But becoming a speed reader is not just about reading more quickly. As Einstein said, you can’t solve the problem on the level at which it’s been created. When we shift to a new level of identity the appropriate behaviours will follow. This session will give you some of the skills required to become a speed reader. When you leave the session, you can expect to be reading about twice as fast as when you came in, but more importantly, you should be getting through up to 10 times more material in the time you have available.

Stress damages memory

Stress damages memory according to research by the University of California. Cortisol has been shown to damage and kill cells in the hippocampus (the area of the brain that is responsible for memory) and there is evidence that chronic stress causes premature brain aging. It has shown that even short-term stress can affect memory by activating ‘corticotropin-releasing hormones’, which disrupt the process by which the brain collects and stores memories. On the other hand, recent research by scientists in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows that acute stress can benefit the brain: it causes it to produce hormones that boosts its ability to learn and remember.

When we’re anxious our adrenal glands release the stress hormones adrenalin and cortisol. This response helps our bodies to deal with the immediate crisis we’re facing by increasing heart rate and blood glucose levels to give us energy and also dampening our digestive and and immune system and ability to rest.  Prof Robert Sapolsky, a pioneer in the field of stress, established  that problems can occur if our exposure to the hormones is prolonged. Other research suggests that 80% problems with learning are to do with stress. So learn how to manage stress (some tips from prof Sapolsky). Breathing, meditation, smiling (helps to release endorphines – happy hormones), NLP and EFT (emotional freedom technique)/tapping help to combat stress.

Hot tips for e-readers: use heatmap map of passages or collective wisdom

Kindle ebooks allow to share individual insights into the ebooks. E-readers can aggregate their experience of a text, so that anyone can identify those passages that collective wisdom had identified as particularly pertinent. Enough ereaders need to highlight a passage to be visible to others as an aggregate or a reading heat map. It’s a great idea to save time reading ebooks by showing key passages illuminated by layering all readers’ highlights for the same text. More insights into ebooks, e-reading, etc

Amazone’s new Kindle e-book reader

The new Amazon’s device for reading ebooks costs £100 and is a size of of a paperback book. Will it change the way we read ebook? It can store up to 3500 ebooks and one can download new titles in seconds from the online catalogue of more than 400 000 ebooks. Amazon is already selling most of ebooks for $9.99 (£7.53) and promises to undercut prices of paper books and ebooks rivals such as Apple and Sony. “In the US we now sell more electronic books than physical ones and we are happy to bring this to the UK,” said Steve Kessel, Amazon Kindle’s senior vice president. (To be exact, it had sold 143 ebooks for every 100 hardbacks). I’ve been using Kindle on my iPhone and iPad (and on my Mac) for some time now and I love it. Download Kindle for FREE to your mobile, iPad or PC/Mac and start ereading. To save time on reading start with book summaries. We recommend: Passing Time in the Loo: Vol 3 – Book Summaries (Summaries of Classics, Novels, Plays, Short Stories, Children’s Classics and Operas) [Kindle Edition] –  more than 150 books summarised. And to brush on Shakespeare: Passing Time in the Loo: Shakespeare – Summaries of Shakespeare’s Greatest Sonnets and Plays (Comedies, Tragedies, Histories) (Passing Time in the Loo: … Glimpse Of His World And Greatest Plays) [Kindle Edition]

Do people read slower on Kindle and iPad?

Recent research by the Nielsen Norman Group found that it takes longer to read books on a Kindle or an iPad than in print. On average reading speeds declined by 6.2% on the iPad and 10.7 on the Kindle compared with print versions.  I personally think I’m reading much more in volume on my iPad and iPhone, simply because it’s more convenient and accessible way of processing information. I believe once we read more on portable devices such as iPad and iPhone we’ll develop our ability to read ebooks faster than print books.  The sales of ebooks on Amazon overtook the print sales for the first time last Christmas.

Interactive reading – the future of reading

The release of iPad and iBooks Store next month signals the new area for reading – interactive reading. Although reading on screen is nothing new (Google has been digitalising the world’s libraries since 2004) the publishing industry is ready to reinvent the book. The new platforms will allow readers to interact with one another in a social networks, travel books will let users send e-postcards, and kids will digitally paint-in their colouring books via the iPad’s touchscreen, among other things. “What was once a liner activity is an interactive experience. The iPad – it’s where the future is” says Anna Rafferty, the managing director of Penguin Digital.

Sleep lessons – why sleep is such a winner

A new study suggests that teenagers get only four hours of sleep a night and as a result of that their school performance is suffering. So pupils are offered sleep lessons. (Read more on the role of sleep in learning) Poor sleep impacts health in many ways from ill health to behavioural problems. Sleep is very important to maintain many normal skills such as speech, memory, innovative and flexible thinking. Lack of sleep is said to have contributed to a number of disasters such as Chernobyl and Exxon Valdez. Not enough of sleep has a huge impact on emotional and physical well being including stress, depression, blood pressure, weight problems, diabetes, and risk of heart disease. Also studies suggest that when you lack sleep you’re more likely to make bad decisions. Read more about the importance of napping.

Be smart – start school at 10am
For all sleepy teenagers it could be the perfect excuse. One school thought it’s taking this seriously. At Monkseaton school, a Tyneside comprehensive lessons will start now at 10am rather than 9am. This project is overseen by three scientists including an Oxfrord neuro-science professor. The results look promising: lateness has dropped 8%, long-term absence 27% and GCSE results i maths and English in January are significantly improved compared to the last year. So it looks that starting the school later is good for teenagers’ unusual body clocks with the good results to follow. Read the full story

Passing Time in The Loo – the best of collection of 150+ books summaries

Not just easy peasy books, but Anna Karenina (Tolstoy), For whom the bell tolls (Hemingway), Don Quixote, Das Kapital (Marx), The Origin of Species (Darwin) and – by way of light relief – Shakespeare’s King Lear. All books I ‘wanted to have read’ but didn’t think I’d ever get round to reading and. To be honest, wasn’t really looking forward to reading). How did I do it? I read brilliant two-page summaries in ‘Passing Time in the Loo’. I got the stories, a flavour of the books and some info on their relevance. And I didn’t feel bad about it because research shows that people remember more from summaries than from reading the books. And loads more goodies to choose from tomorrow. Just checked out the publisher’s website (Passing Time in The Loo – 150+ classic books summaries) and they’re doing a deal – buy Passing Time in the Loo vol I or vol II and get the best of Shakespeare’s summaries free. Better than Amazon! But watch out – don’t be tempted to get ‘The Great American Bathroom Book’ or ‘Touch of Classics’ as well – they’re just the ‘loo’ books under different titles.  Read more about the importance of summaries and how they help with remembering information

Sleep Pods devised by MetroNap

Sleep Pods devised by MetroNap

“It has already been established that those who siesta are less likely to die of heart disease (people who siesta for 20-30 minutes each day are 30% less likely to suffer from heart disease as sleep lowers stress on the heart). Now, Matthew Walker and his colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that they probably have better memory, too. A post-prandial snooze, Dr Walker has discovered, sets the brain up for learning. The ideal nap, follows a cycle of between 90 and 100 minutes (according the research, napping for 90 minutes after lunch can improve your productivity by up to 10%). The benefits to memory of a nap, says Dr Walker, are so great that they can equal an entire night’s sleep. He warns, however, that napping must not be done too late in the day or it will interfere with night-time sleep. Moreover, not everyone awakens refreshed from a siesta. The grogginess that results from an unrefreshing siesta is termed “sleep inertia”. This happens when the brain is woken from a deep sleep with its cells still firing at a slow rhythm and its temperature and blood flow decreased. Sara Mednick, from the University of California, San Diego, suggests that non-habitual nappers suffer from this more often than those who siesta regularly. It may be that those who have a tendency to wake up groggy are choosing not to siesta in the first place. Perhaps, though, as in so many things, it is practice that makes perfect.” Read the full story in Economist

Memory control discovered in forgetful flies

You may not like forgetting things but a new research suggests that any healthy brain need to be able to loose old memories. A  protein has been discovered in flies that is the key to forgetting. At this time the scientists don’t know if this protein has the same role in people. If people forget in similar fashion as flies do, this could pave the way to new ways to enhance memories or erase unwanted ones. Read the whole story in the NewScientist
