Top Ten Writing Rules From Famous Writers
 
05:02
These top ten writing rules from famous writers will inspire your writing and your love of the craft. A few of you have asked about sources. Here you go! • All the Stephen King references are from his book On Writing (This book makes a great gift for the writer in your life) • Pierre Burton references are from The Joy of Writing (thanks to my friend Mehreen who lent it to me not realizing that I will never, ever give it back!) • The Sherman Alexie rules comes from...oh shoot. I didn't provide a Sherman Alexie rule. I should have. He's awesome. • The Neil Gaimon, Andrew Morton, AL Kennedy and Margaret Atwood rules can all be found in the Guardian's Rules of Writing column -- here's a link to the overall column: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/feb/20/ten-rules-for-writing-fiction-part-one • The George Orwell quote comes from his 1946 book Politics and the English Language • The Bob Cooper quote obviously comes from the classroom. I can't verify he said it in any official way but I promise he did! By the way, I know that technically Bob is not 'famous' but it's my video and he's famous to me. (God bless our teachers) • Finally, it's been pointed out that I said 'he' in reference to Al Kennedy. I'm so embarrassed. In my defense, it was my first video and I was nervous. It's a miracle that I was able to get anything out correctly! I didn't even notice it till a few months ago. Sorry to Ms. Kennedy and those of you who adore her as much as I do. And by the way, you guys are pretty awesome for not calling me on it (except the troll who actually blogged about it -- imagine?!) and I appreciate your good manners. - Kim

TEDxConejo - Erin Gruwell - The Freedom Writers
 
18:00
Erin Gruwell is an educator and president of The Freedom Writers Foundation. When Erin landed her first job at Wilson High School in Long Beach, Ca, she discovered many of her students had been written off by the education system and deemed "unteachable." As teenagers living in a racially divided urban community, they were already hardened by exposure to gang violence, juvenile detention, and drugs. By fostering an educational philosophy that valued and promoted diversity, she transformed her students lives. She encouraged them to rethink rigid beliefs about themselves and others, to reconsider daily decisions, and to rechart their futures. With Erin's steadfast support, her students shattered stereotypes to become critical thinkers, aspiring college students and citizens for change. They dubbed themselves the "Freedom Writers." Inspired by Anne Frank and Zlata Filipovic (who lived through worn-torn Sarajevo), Erin and her students captured their collective journey in "The Freedom Writers Diary - How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them." The book and their stories became the basis for the movie, THE FREEDOM WRITERS, in which Hilary Swank starred as Erin Gruwell. TEDxCONEJO TEDxConejo, an independently organized TED event, was held in Thousand Oaks, Ca on March 26, 2011. The conference theme was Energy, using that word very broadly to go beyond what powers our homes and transportation but really what fuels life. What energizes business, education, health, and ideas? What energizes you? A broad mix of thinkers and doers characterizes the TEDx experience both on the stage and in the audience. TEDxConejo is open to the general public and produced in association with the Conejo Valley Unified School District. For more information visit www.tedxconejo.com About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

The School of Rock movie clips: http://j.mp/1J9Y3H1 BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/uylb3E Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Dewey (Jack Black) shows Ms. Mullins (Joan Cusack) how he uses music to teach the kids. FILM DESCRIPTION: The world's least-employable heavy metal guitarist is entrusted with the minds of upstate New York's best and brightest in this fish-out-of-water comedy. Jack Black plays Dewey Finn, axe-bearer for a fitfully successful bar band determined to win a regional battle-of-the-bands competition. There's only one thing standing in their way: the self-indulgent solos and crowd-diving antics of their "embarrassing" lead guitarist. When his band votes him out in favor of a would-be rock god, Dewey has to make the rent somehow, and after intercepting a call for his substitute-teacher roomie Ned (Mike White), the pot-bellied slacker finds himself in front of a class of elite elementary school students. At a loss for a lesson plan, Dewey takes offense at the pre-teen prodigies' staid musical regimen and makes it his goal to preach them the gospel of The Who, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC -- with the ulterior motive of getting them to compete against his former band for a cash prize. But no matter how willing his pupils, Dewey runs up against the consternation of the school's stern headmistress Principal Mullins (Joan Cusack), the battle-of-the-bands' promoter (Frank Whaley), and not least, his identity-deprived roomie Ned.

Business Ideas: 3 Business Lessons From J.K. Rowling
 
07:04
*** Newest Video: http://www.evancarmichael.com/Masters/ *** Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! Today we're going to look at how a single mother on welfare followed her passion of writing and became the first billion-dollar author and the highest earning novelist in history. This is the story of J.K. Rowling and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from her success. "It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - J.K. Rowling To learn more check out my list of J.K. Rowling articles at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/1713/summary.php or http://community.telustalksbusiness.com/blogs/talk_business/2011/04/11/how-to-get-over-your-fear-of-failure-make-every-second-count-and-love-what-you-do-like-jk-rowling-harry-potter-creator Action Item #1: Get Over Your Fear of Failure Nobody wants to fail but you can't let the fear of failing prevent you from making important decisions in your life. Anything worth doing will come with a healthy dose of fear - successful entrepreneurs are the ones who can plough through that fear and come out victorious on the other side. Rowling couldn't believe the number of different stories publishing houses gave her as to why they didn't want to print her manuscript. Her story was too long, too fantastical, and wouldn't do well selling to a mainstream audience, they said. She remained patient and had faith in her product. She continued to send it out to publishing houses until she found one who saw in her story what she did: a success. It was one year from the time Rowling finished the very first Harry Potter book to the time that a publisher finally agreed to buy and publish it. According to Rowling: "Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve. I was determined to try. I was determined to try because, frankly, my life was such a mess at this point, what -- what was the worst that could happen? Everyone turn me down? Big deal." Action Item #2: Make Every Second Count You only have so much time in the day to get work done and, as entrepreneurs, we usually have too many projects on the go to keep track of. It's hard work getting a business off the ground and you need to make every second count. Harry Potter came to life on a day that Rowling was stuck on a train between Manchester and London during a four-hour delay. The passenger sitting next to her might have used the time to catch up on some sleep, but Rowling was determined to use the time to her advantage. Whether it was a 15 minute break from her secretarial duties at Amnesty International or a 30 minute nap time break from her baby daughter, Rowling used every spare second to dream up and jot down points for her story. According to Rowling: "Where the idea for Harry Potter actually came from, I really couldn't tell you. I was traveling on a train between Manchester and London and it just popped into my head. I spent four hours thinking about what Hogwarts would be like -- the most interesting train journey I've ever taken. By the time I got off at King's Cross, many of the characters in the books had already been invented." Action Item #3: Love What You Do If you don't love what you do, you're not going to have much success and entrepreneur. You're going to quit as soon as it gets tough and you're not going to make a meaningful contribution to your community. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know it's right when you find it. Rowling wanted to make her contribution the world, to add her unique something that nobody else could bring to the table -- and that unique something was her writing. She never went searching for the kind of success she has received today. She simply wanted to do best what she loved most, and that was writing. According to Rowling: "I just write what I wanted to write... I write what amuses me. It's totally for myself... I am an extraordinarily lucky person, doing what I love best in the world. I'm sure that I will always be a writer." Closing Thoughts: How did you get over your fear of failure? Do you make every second count? What part J.K. Rowling's message impacted you the most? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts if you leave a comment below! *** Music by Calikokat: http://www.youtube.com/user/calikokat1

Business Ideas - 3 Business Lessons From Philip Knight
 
08:01
*** Newest Video: http://www.evancarmichael.com/Masters/ *** Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! Today we're going to look at how a young man left the secure job that his father wanted him to take to follow his passion in the sporting world. He went on to build one of the most well known companies in the world. This is the story of Nike founder Philip Knight and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "We had no master plan. It was totally seat of the pants." - Philip Knight Learn more about Philip Knight at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/998/summary.php Philip Knight (born February 24, 1938) is the co-founder and Chairman of Nike. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, Knight discovered he had a love for running and went to train with the legendary track coach Bill Bowerman at the University of Oregon. In addition to coaching, Bowerman was experimenting with creating new types of shoes and Knight field tested them on the track for him. After graduating, Knight went to graduate school at Stanford and signed up for a small business class. He had to create a business plan in the class and thought back to Bowerman's shoes. In his business plan, Knight developed a blueprint for superior athletic shoes which could be produced cheaply in Japan. After taking a job as an accountant to make his father happy and hating it, Knight flew to Japan to find a factory to make the shoes. He returned home to create a partnership with Bowerman. They each invested $500 into the business and named it Blue Ribbon Sports (later changed to Nike). In its first year the company sold only $364 worth of shoes but Knight was determined to make the company work and stuck with it until it did. Today Nike brings in almost $20 billion in revenue. Knight's stake in the company gives him an estimated net worth of US$12.7 billion, making him the 60th richest person in the world. Action Item #1: Have a Clear Focus Action Item #2: Think of Business as War Action Item #3: Just Do It True Story In 1972, Knight decided that his company, Blue Ribbon Sports, needed a new name and a new logo. Knight liked the name "Dimension Six" but his staff disagreed. One employee suggested "Nike" after the Greek goddess of victory. Knight then paid $35 to Carolyn Davidson, a University of Oregon student, to design the now famous "swoosh" logo. At the time Knight said "I don't love it, but it will grow on me." He was under a deadline to pick a logo so he went with it and a the new company was born. More Quotes "Ultimately, we wanted Nike to be the world's best sports and fitness company. Once you say that, you have a focus." "The trouble in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but that we are making too few." "Everybody wants a certain amount of stress. Most people have too much, but I didn't want too little, either." What Do You Think? Do you have any problems to "Just Do It"? How do you stay focused? What part of Philip Knight's message impacted you the most? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts if you leave a comment below!

Business Ideas: 3 Business  Lessons From Henry Heinz
 
07:04
*** Newest Video: http://www.evancarmichael.com/Masters/ *** Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! Today we're going to look at how the son of immigrant labourers went against the dream his parents had for him to become a preacher and built one of the most successful companies in the food production business. This is the story of Henry Heinz and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "To do a common thing uncommonly well brings success." - Henry J. Heinz To learn more check out my list of Henry J. Heinz articles at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/2715/summary.php or http://community.telustalksbusiness.com/blogs/talk_business/2011/02/28/3-lessons-from-henry-heinz-from-immigrant-farmer-to-ultra-successful-entrepreneur Action Item #1: Create a Catchy Slogan Whatever industry you're in, you probably have many competitors. How can you stand out from everyone else? A great way to cut through the clutter is to create a catchy slogan that highlights what you're really good at. Heinz was looking for a slogan while riding on a streetcar in New York one day in 1896. He then saw an advertisement for a shoe store; it read "21 Styles." According to Heinz: "I said to myself, 'we do not have styles of products, but we do have varieties of products. Counting up how many we had, I counted well beyond 57, but 57 kept coming back to my mind. Seven, seven -- there are so many illustrations of the psychological influence of that figure and of its alluring significance to people of all ages and races that '58 Varieties' or '59 Varieties' did not appeal at all to me as being equally strong." With that, Heinz immediately jumped off the streetcar, went down to the print shop, and drafted up a card with the new 57 Varieties slogan. Reflecting back, Heinz acknowledged: "I myself did not realize how highly successful a slogan it was going to be." Action Item #2: Be Unique with Your Promotions Another great way to cut through the clutter and have potential customers pay attention to you is to be unique with your promotional campaigns. No tactic was too flashy or gaudy for Heinz. He wanted his products to stand out and shine -- literally. In 1900, Heinz decided to erect the first ever electric sign in New York City, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street in Manhattan. Standing six stories tall, the sign was a large electric-lit pickle that bore the Heinz name and its "57 Varieties" slogan. In the display room below the sign, Heinz's employees could be seen packing miniature pickles into bottles. The sign took 1,200 light bulbs to build and cost the company some $90 every night, but for Heinz, it was all worth it. For years, this electric pickle impressed shoppers along the famous New York strip and served as invaluable advertising. Heinz was a master promoter, and was even responsible for pioneering one of the major trends in the industry. Obsessed with quality, freshness, and cleanliness, Heinz invented the concept of the "factory tour." Anyone who was interested in seeing how Heinz produced and packaged his products was now allowed to witness the process first-hand. He was confident in his operations and believed opening it up to the public would help build confidence and trust in his company. The move sparked an outburst of positive publicity, not to mention a wave of copycats. Action Item #3: Have a Quality Product and Be Proud of It Most of the famous entrepreneurs achieved success not because they were trying to make a lot of money but because they created a product or service that was good quality and they were proud to make and promote. Heinz was very proud of all of his products. In addition to allowing the public access to his factories, Heinz also opened up his products to them -- literally. He was one of the first to ever package his products in clear, glass bottles. Heinz's competitors would often use filler ingredients to pump up the volume of their products, and then conceal the fact by using opaque, coloured containers. Heinz wanted his customers to see exactly what they were buying. He was proud of his products' quality and offered transparent bottles to ensure customers they were getting their money's worth. Heinz's biographer, Robert C. Alberts, claimed that Heinz had hit on one of the most important and shaping business ideas of his time: that a pure article of superior quality could find a ready market through its intrinsic value, so long as it was packaged and promoted properly.

Thank you to Calikokat (http://www.youtube.com/user/calikokat1) for the music! My name is Evan Carmichael and I believe that the fastest and most effective way to build a business is to model the strategies of people who have already done what you're trying to do. I call it Modeling the Masters. Today we're going to look at how a former brick mason refused to settle for less than he felt he deserved and went on to build one of the most successful financial companies in the world. This is the story of VISA founder Dee Hock and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "Money motivates neither the best people, nor the best in people." - Dee Hock Learn more about Dee Hock at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/6683/summary.php Dee Hock (born 1929) is the founder and former CEO of VISA. In 1968, when credit cards were first starting to get popular, Hock convinced the Bank of America to release control over their BankAmericard credit card program. He started a new company to control the credit cards. It was called National BankAmerica and later changed to VISA. Hock came from a modest household. His father was a utility lineman and after marrying his high school sweetheart, Hock's first jobs were working in a slaughterhouse and for a brick mason. He became interested in the banking world and walked away from three separate jobs at respected financial companies because he thought they were too hierarchical and controlling which limited his creativity. Hock went looking for an opportunity to build a different type of organization, one that valued the creativity and enthusiasm of its employees. The result of this plan was VISA. Today VISA has over $8 billion in revenues and processes over 60 billion transactions per year. Action Item #1: Hire People Different From You Action Item #2: Be A Leader Action Item #3: Empty Your Mind More Quotes "Failure is not to be feared. It is from failure that most growth comes; provided that one can recognize it, admit it, learn from it, rise about it, and try again." "If you don't understand that you work for your mislabelled 'subordinates,' then you know nothing of leadership. You know only tyranny." "Given the right circumstances, from no more than dreams, determination, and the liberty to try, quite ordinary people consistently do extraordinary things."

Book Cover Design Tips With Book Cover Designer Anthony Puttee
 
32:04
For more on how to find and work with a book cover designer: https://www.thecreativepenn.com/find-and-work-with-a-book-cover-designer/ People really do judge a book by its cover so you need to know what is most effective and what your options are when it comes to book cover design. Anthony Puttee is a designer, co-author of YA novel Dream Raider and founder of BookCoverCafe.com. He specializes in helping authors with book cover design and other aspects of marketing. What people get wrong with book cover design Design is subjective so its never clear what exactly is right, but there are some things that are wrong. Lack of impact is a general problem. There's nothing that stands out and grabs the reader. It usually comes down to a couple of core things. Poor use of titles and typography e.g. wrong choice of font and also the placement of the author name. Clutter is also a very bad idea. Don't put all elements of your story, you don't need characters, the ocean, the farmhouse, whatever. You can't make out a clear message. So consider what might be symbolic and represent the whole story and just use that one strong element. Covers for genres and series Rules around genre covers. There are some considerations to keep in mind. Readers of certain genres expect to see certain images or moods on the cover e.g. science fiction uses deep colours and images of space. For font and typography it might be chiseled and industrial vs a contrasting romance chick lit cover with fun, bubbly, curly typography. All these things convey the message of the book. (Check out the story of the author who dumped her publisher over disagreement on covers) I love this cover. Gorgeous font! Research other books in your genre and use that for ideas. Deconstruct the covers and how it makes you feel. Break down the elements and train your eye to what you see. You can get free fonts or cheap fonts online if you can't find a standard. On covers for series.How can you make covers consistent or matching? Are there consistent themes or images that you can use across multiple books. Example being The Diary of the Wimpy Kid series. The font is the same as are the stick figures but the colors and drawings are different. So for your book, consider an element to be consistent. Keep the same font on the titles. Other examples for non-fiction would be the Dummies guides where the black and yellow becomes part of the branding. You can also re-release books with new covers, as per China Mieville's seen in a British bookshop. Note the similarities for books under one author brand In re-releasing your books, you can also add testimonials and quotes to the cover if you upload a new one for print on demand. Ebook Covers vs Print Covers There has to be an impact at a thumbnail size. The title needs to be readable. Colour plays a huge part. Use the glance test. Look at it and look away. Can you tell what kind of book it is? This is important for it standing out. But make sure the cover is also good at a large size e.g. for fliers, posters if you are doing live events. Tips for DIY book covers For a usable cover, you want something better than Windows Paint. You can find good stock images e.g. at istockphoto. Find the main elements you want to include. It's the research that takes a lot of time. Find the images, the font and the elements that will work for your cover. You can use photo-editing software e.g. Photoshop Elements which costs but good if you're doing lots yourself. You can also get free software Gimp but there is a steep learning curve (From Joanna – I tried this, very frustrating!) For fonts, check out these typography sites recommended by Joel, The Book Designer How do you work with a designer? Give them any ideas you have, any images and guidance you can which will start things off in a good direction. You also need to allow creativity from the designer. You will discuss who is your audience and what are the ideas the designer has for the book. Once you set up a project, the designer will come up with a couple of designs. You can also use movies or music videos as inspiration. Anything to help you set the tone. The designer will also produce a print ready file including spine for print book. CreateSpace or other online providers will set their guidelines or you can provide from your local printer. The designer doesn't hold the rights to your cover design, that's import How much does it cost? There are obviously different price points depending on what you want. Cover packages would be $200 upwards for a good quality product. If you need more time, more drafts etc, it will be more expensive.

Henry Ford Documentary - Success Story

http://www.evancarmichael.com/support/ - SUPPORT ME :) Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! My name is Evan Carmichael and I believe that the fastest and most effective way to build a business is to model the strategies of people who have already done what you're trying to do. I call it Modeling the Masters. My last post with 20 comments was 8 Ways the iPad Saved My Vacation and was a little break from the norm. Today we're going to look at how an entrepreneur who was told he wouldn't last six months in business refused to give up and went on to become one of the wealthiest men in the world. This is the story of Henry Ford and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "You can do anything if you have enthusiasm." - Henry Ford Learn more about Henry Ford at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/559/summary.php Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 -- April 7, 1947) was an American business icon and founder of the Ford Motor Company. He was the son of Irish immigrants and from an early age showed an interest in engineering. He set out to learn as much as he could and took various apprenticeships and jobs with manufacturing companies. When he was 36 years old he invented the Quadricycle in his spare time. It was two bicycles attached together, powered by a gasoline engine. It was a very primitive car. After refining the vehicle he went to see William H. Murphy, a lumber tycoon and investor in Detroit, who took it for a test drive. Murphy agreed with Ford that gasoline-powered vehicles would be fuelling the future and the two instantly formed a partnership. Henry Ford was in business. Ford not only revolutionized the manufacturing industry with assembly line mass production, he also became one of the richest and most well-known people in the world. According to Forbes, his net worth in today's dollars would be $188.1 billion, over three times richer than Bill Gates. Action Item #1: Don't Quit Action Item #2: Focus on Quality Action Item #3: Build a Team True Story When Henry Ford implemented his assembly line idea he found that his workers were quickly getting burnt out doing the same thing over and over again. To attract the best people, Ford recommended to his stockholders that they pay the workers $5 per day, twice the daily average wage. His stockholders said no so Ford bought them out, implemented his $5 a day salary and quickly had people lining up to work for him. More Quotes "Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service." "A market is never saturated with a good product, but it is very quickly saturated with a bad one." "Most people get ahead during the time that others waste." What Do You Think? Have you thought about quitting your business? What has your experience been with building a team? What part of Henry Ford's message impacted you the most? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts if you leave a comment below!

David Chalmers is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Consciousness at the Australian National University. Chalmers is interested in the relationship between mind, brain and reality. He is best known for formulating the "hard problem" of consciousness and for his arguments against materialism. His 1996 book The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory was highly successful with both popular and academic audiences. In 2010 he gave the John Locke Lectures at the University of Oxford. These will shortly be published as his book Constructing the World . He also works on language, metaphysics, and artificial intelligence. http://tedxsydney.com/site/newSpeakers.cfm#DavidChalmers http://anu.edu.au ------------------- TEDxSydney 2011 took place on Saturday 28 May 2011 at CarriageWorks.

The Ego Tunnel: Prof. Dr. Thomas Metzinger at TEDxRheinMain
 
17:47
Brain, bodily awareness, and the emergence of a conscious self: these entities and their relations are explored by Germanphilosopher and cognitive scientist Metzinger. Extensively working with neuroscientists he has come to the conclusion that, in fact, there is no such thing as a "self" -- that a "self" is simply the content of a model created by our brain - part of a virtual reality we create for ourselves. But if the self is not "real," he asks, why and how did it evolve? How does the brain construct the self? In a series of fascinating virtual reality experiments, Metzinger and his colleagues have attempted to create so-called "out-of-body experiences" in the lab, in order to explore these questions. As a philosopher, he offers a discussion of many of the latest results in robotics, neuroscience, dream and meditation research, and argues that the brain is much more powerful than we have ever imagined. He shows us, for example, that we now have the first machines that have developed an inner image of their own body -- and actually use this model to create intelligent behavior. In addition, studies exploring the connections between phantom limbs and the brain have shown us that even people born without arms or legs sometimes experience a sensation that they do in fact have limbs that are not there. Experiments like the "rubber-hand illusion" demonstrate how we can experience a fake hand as part of our self and even feel a sensation of touch on the phantom hand form the basis and testing ground for the idea that what we have called the "self" in the past is just the content of a transparent self-model in our brains. Now, as new ways of manipulating the conscious mind-brain appear on the scene, it will soon become possible to alter our subjective reality in an unprecedented manner. The cultural consequences of this, Metzinger claims, may be immense: we will need a new approach to ethics, and we will be forced to think about ourselves in a fundamentally new way. At TEDxRheinMain 2011 he will share his thoughts on consciousness and the self and talk about the concept of the Ego-Tunnel. Pro. Dr. Thomas Metzinger: (*1958 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany) is currently Professor of Theoretical Philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg‐Universität Mainz and an Adjunct Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Study. In 2009 he returned from a prestigious one‐year Fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (Berlin Institute for Advanced Study), is past president of the German Cognitive Science Society and currently president of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness. His focus of research lies in analytical philosophy of mind, philosophy of science and philosophical aspects of the neuro- and cognitive sciences as well as connections between ethics, philosophy of mind and anthropology. He has edited and published extensively in German and English, e.g. one major scientific monograph developing a comprehensive, interdisciplinary theory about consciousness, the phenomenal self, and the first‐person perspective ("Being No One -- The Self‐Model Theory of Subjectivity", Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2003). In 2009, he published a popular book, which addresses a wider audience and also discusses the ethical, cultural and social consequences of consciousness research ("The Ego Tunnel -- The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self", New York: Basic Books) About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Abdul Kalam, A Lesson for my Teacher: Learn English (IND) - Story for Children "BookBox.com"
 
05:28
Buy the storybook for your child (with a FREE CD!) on Amazon India: https://amzn.to/2CHFNLT Kalam and Ram were best friends in school but one day a teacher separated them. A touching story about how everyone learned a lesson. A Lesson for my Teacher I lived on the Mosque Street in Rameswaram, a city famous for its Shiva temple. Every evening on my way home from the mosque, I would linger near the temple. I always felt like a stranger here as the temple goers stared suspiciously at me. They probably wondered what a Muslim boy was doing in front of a temple. The truth was that I loved to listen to the rhythmic chanting of the mantras, though I never understood a word. There was a strange magic in them. Of course, something else led me there. My best friend, Ramanadha Sastry, was the son of the head priest. He sat beside his father at this hour, reciting hymns. Ram would steal a smiling glance at me from time to time. At school, Ram and I always sat together on the first bench of our classroom. We were like brothers. However, being a Hindu priest's son, he wore a sacred thread, while my white cap marked me as a Muslim. One day, when we were in the fifth standard, a new teacher came to our class. He looked strict. He went around the class tapping his cane on his palm and stopped before us. “You, the one in the white cap. How dare you sit beside the temple priest’s son!” He shouted, “Go sit on the last bench.” I felt hurt. With tears in my eyes, I picked up my books and shifted to the last row. Ram and I wept together silently after school. We thought we would not be allowed to be friends anymore. When I reached home that day my father looked at me and asked, “Were you crying... what’s wrong son?” I recounted the whole incident to my father while Ram also told his family the same story. Early the next morning Ram came running to our house and said, “Father has asked you to come to our house immediately.” I was terrified. I thought I was in for some more trouble. We hurried back to Ram's house. My heart skipped a beat when I saw our new teacher standing there. “In the light of our discussion, apologise to Kalam here,” said Ram’s father with a stern face. I could not believe what I had just heard! The head priest was asking the teacher to apologise to me? “No child is less than another in God’s eyes. It is your duty as a teacher to help students live in harmony in spite of the differences in their background. You can no longer teach in this school,” he said. Our teacher immediately asked me to forgive him. He hugged me and said, “I am sorry, Kalam, I have learnt an important lesson in life today.” Ram’s father saw that the teacher sincerely regretted his behaviour and permitted him to continue teaching. From that day on, Ram and I sat together proudly on the front bench. We have remained the best of friends ever since.

Designing the Fire Sprinkler System
 
06:45
Application In the practical application, floor plans are first of all referenced. Each layer can also be edited in the referenced floor plan. The height is added to the respective floor plan at exactly the right point. Due to the flexible layer management, it is possible to subdivide the entire sprinkler construction by floor. All sprinkler components, such as sprinklers, pipelines, pumps, valves, etc., are available in databases. By clicking on walls or entering a surface, the optimum sprinklers are automatically positioned in the plan in accordance with the VdS rules and NFPA standards, after selecting the sprinkler types, parameters, protection zones and heights. Alternatively, the sprinklers can also be positioned in terms of reference points and edited with all standard AutoCAD functions, such as Copy, Move, etc. In addition to the sprinkler types in the available database, it is also possible to create individually configured sprinklers. Technical data and symbols are immediately provided for this purpose. The main and branch pipelines are added either individually or in groups. Existing AutoCAD lines can be transformed into intelligent pipelines. Additionally a large library with valves, components and pumps is available. For the complete pipeline network there are numerous test routines which check and then automatically correct any errors. For calculations two methods are available which also allow for the calculation of foaming agents. After the sprinklers and pipelines have been automatically numbered, the corresponding effective surfaces are created. Once the direction of flow has been determined, the calculation can begin. The calculation is performed in accordance with the pressure at the least effective sprinkler, the feed point or in terms of the average water impingement. All results are clearly laid out and displayed immediately. All changes of the pipelines are associative and immediately realized in the drawing. Output is in VdS format, either as Ascii or directly in Excel. Finally, the system components are extracted; the lists can be configured freely as required so that they give the user the required information. The module-universal collision test helps the user in coordinating the individual modules. Calculations With approval of the society of non-life insurances Calculation method as per Hazen-Williams, or Darcy-Weisbach and NFPA Calculation of e.g. foaming agents Editable database for all components Tabular inputting of sprinklers, components and pipelines Automatic reading of all data from the drawing, such as elbows, branches etc. Choice of calculation in terms of pressure at least effective sprinkler, feed point, or water impingement Reports as per VdS format available in Ascii or Excel. Masses Automatic reading of all data from the drawing, such as bends, branches, etc. Outputting of sprinklers, pipelines, fittings, valves, etc. Incorporation of parts list in the drawing, alternative output in Excel, PDF etc. Overview of functions CAD Generation of drawing, assembly and as-built drawings Automatic generation of isometric and section views 2D library with access to more than 100 graphical symbols 2D recesses for slits and openings Flexible management of added storey plans Editable databases for all components, including transfer of defined symbols Automatic placement of sprinklers in accordance with VdS rules Pipelines displayed as single lines, in analogy with AutoCAD Line command Fully automatic generation of branch lines Optional conversion of lines, circles, etc. to sprinkler objects Editing functions for individual components or for complete pipe system Generation of angle branch-offs and automatic pipe branch connections Checking and correction functions for each section of the construction Associative dimensioning, for instance with pipelines, flow speed, information signs, etc. Automatic display of risers, mountings, flow directions, etc. Associative indicators, definable pipe and spatial references Automatic numbering of components and pipes Construction of effective area with automatic area statement Deduction of flow direction in preparation for calculation Automatic construction of pump characteristic lines in the drawing Price summary made by simple assignment of attributes Spatial display in 3D and collision test, optional following calculation

Business Ideas: How to Grow, Be Opportunistic, and Ignore Your Critics Like Robert Johnson
 
06:21
*** Newest Video: http://www.evancarmichael.com/Masters/ *** Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! Today we're going to look at how a boy from a family of 10 in Mississippi kept his eyes open for opportunities and turned a $15,000 investment into multi-billion dollar empire. This is the story of Robert Johnson from B.E.T. and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. "Anything that has to do with money, I want to be in that business." - Robert Johnson To learn more check out my list of Robert Johnson articles at http://www.evancarmichael.com/Famous-Entrepreneurs/1770/summary.php or http://community.telustalksbusiness.com/blogs/talk_business/2011/04/25/how-to-grow-be-opportunistic-and-ignore-your-critics-like-robert-johnson-bet-founder Robert L. Johnson (born April 8, 1946) is an American businessman, best known for being the founder of television network Black Entertainment Television (BET). In 2001 Johnson became the first African American billionaire, and the first black person to be listed on any of Forbes world's rich list. Eleven years after its initial launch, BET became the first black-owned company to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Today, BET has spinoff channels and is the largest black-owned cable company in history. Johnson bought back all the BET stock seven years after it went public for $1 billion. He then sold it to media giant Viacom two years later for $3 billion. Action Item #1: Always Be Growing Johnson has been called a serial entrepreneur thanks to his love of starting new businesses on the fly. Throughout his career, however, if there is one thing he has learned it is this: there are always new customers to go after. According to Johnson: "If there's something I can do and I feel it should be done, I just want to do it. I just don't want to leave it undone because I'll sit back and say, why didn't I do that? Why didn't I start that business?" Action Item #2: Be Opportunistic Where Johnson sees the chance to make money, he jumps at it. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. And, while his critics use that fact as one more chance to knock him down, Johnson attributes his success largely to his opportunism. Johnson is an entrepreneur, plain and simple. He wanted to make money -- and lots of it. According to Johnson: "Whenever I see an opportunity and a chance to change something, I go at it... BET was never a legacy event for me. BET was something I started as an investment and I knew someday I would sell it." Action Item #3: Ignore Your Critics Johnson had a lot of critics as he built his business. One of his greatest successes in his own mind is being an African American who succeeded at the highest level - since he felt that "nobody expects minorities to be there." As much as others tried to paint his career in terms of black and white, Johnson has refused to let others identify him as anything other than an entrepreneur -- and a good one at that. According to Johnson: "Today, if I were to put on jeans and walk into a jewellery store, and I could probably buy the jewellery store ten times over. But the jeweller's going to look at me as a black guy in jeans who probably can't afford it, and maybe who just might steal something." Closing Thoughts: How are you growing your business? Did you have to overcome criticism when you got started? What part Robert Johnson's message impacted you the most? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts if you leave a comment below! *** Music by Calikokat: http://www.youtube.com/user/calikokat1
