Improve study and note taking skills

Improve Study and Note Taking Skills

Part of getting better grades in any class is being able to take notes properly. I have found that it takes practice, practice, practice but the rewards are great. Have you ever taken a page of notes then reviewed them only to find incomplete thoughts, incomplete references, and totally incomprehensible jibberish? I have and it is not a pretty sight. Until I learned and applied the following tips I was just going through the motions. Then at test time I had to burn the midnight oil to go back over the book and try to memorize facts and formulas.

For visual learners these tips are indispensible. An added tip was given to me by a master teacher who in college told me that if the professor writes something on the board, put it in your notes and highlight it. Why? There is a good chance it will be on the next test or on the final. Boy was that a piece of great advice. Also, focus and attention are paramount to taking good notes. Let’s just say that texting during lecture is NOT a good idea!

Here are some tips for taking class notes so that you can remember them at test time.
Four easy tips to implement right away:

1. Use colored pens and pencils
2. Highlight and underline important points
3. Include drawings, charts, graphs and figures
4. Do a summary on large paper

These tips are covered in much more detail in Improve Study Skills but here are the basic strategies of these note taking ideas.

1. Use Colored Pens and Pencils

If all your notes look similar it can be really hard to reference something specific. That’s why you should use colors to take notes. Use certain colors for certain aspects of the course.

When you do this regularly you will be able to scan for needed information the KEY POINTS stand out!

2. Highlight and Underline the Important Points

You can be creative by using multiple underlining of words, boxes around words and phrases, circles, arrows and shadows. All these can be used in varying degrees to bring attention to definitions and important definitions or formulas.

3. Include Drawings, Charts, Graphs and Figures

Many things can be expressed more easily by drawings than words. Relationships between objects, timelines, and concepts are sometimes hard to put into words. Combine this tip with tip #1, the use of colors and you will have a strategy that will not only be easy to follow but be a memory jogger at test time.

4. Do a Summary on LARGE Paper

Use large paper, A3 or 11″ X 17″, maybe a little smaller. There are a couple of thngs that you can do with this idea. You can get all the main points of a course on one page, or you can section each page into a subject, topic, or idea.

If you start making use of these four strategies, you’ll begin to notice note taking can be fun and not a drag. The thing that will excite you the most is that you will be remembering information easily and you will see your grades go north instead of south.

This will take practice and work to get your personal way of doing it down pat but it WILL work and become easier the more you do it. Take it from me – do it earlier instead of later!

Type of injury and claim settlement

Type of injury and claim settlement

Injury claims are various. Each type of injury has its procedure. It is difficult for a non-professional to make perfect claim. An experienced solicitor will guide you properly. They undertake to give a suitable amount in compensation from the opponent. Many lawyer and legal firms work on ‘no win no fee’ terms. This is a great relief to the claimant because he need not pay any money unless the case won. Workplace injury is varied. Unsafe conditions at the workplace lead to injury of the employee. Moreover, the type of work an employee is performing is vital. The injury due to driving accident in the workplace, machinery injury, office related injury, warehouse injury and many other attract claim from the employer. The claim includes loss of pay, medical treatment and compensation due to partial or permanent disability. Injury caused to the driver in workplace is accidents involving driving forklifts, poor maintenance of vehicles, truck accidents and continuous stressful work. Moreover, injury caused by machine could be many. It could be partial, permanent or fatal. The major concern is spillage of oil and lubricant on the floor. Construction industry is more prone to accidents then others. Fatal injuries are more in this area of operation. Moreover, they work at a considerable height and injuries from fall could be fatal. Injuries are classified into Mild injury and Hard injury. Mild injury experienced by the employee because of discomfort involving, sprains in neck, ankle, back, hand and other muscle sprain during work. This discomfort heals after a period of time and proper treatment. The medical report must support the claim for compensation. In such cases, matter is resolved within instead of hiring a professional lawyer. Hard Injury is more serious and causes due to fracture, damage to ligament, rupture in spinal chord, etc. Claim for such injuries, professional and experience lawyer’s advice is essential. The insurance adjuster may not accept the claim unless supported by medical report. Serious injury can lead to partial or permanent disability such as paralysis, etc. Paralysis is often permanent in nature and not easily curable. In such circumstance, the claim amount is more. Various aspects like regular medical expenses, cost of wheel chair, loss of pay and the mental trauma taken into account. To support the claim for injury evidence, eyewitness, medical report and workplace log are vital. In addition, the claimant has to prove that the accident was due to employer’s negligence. Therefore, an experienced lawyer in this field is essential. However, the employer’s are cautious and adhere to safety standards since they have to pay more money to the employee in the event of accident.

Common mistakes singapore jc students make in gce ‘a’ level economics exams

2 Common Mistakes Singapore JC Students Make in GCE ‘A’ Level Economics Exams

In most GCE ‘A’ Level Examinations, 5 exam skills are commonly tested. Let’s begin by recalling these 5 skills:

 – knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis and evaluation.

The MOST IMPT is analysis! Wouldn’t you agree that you can write nothing on evaluation and still get A?

Well, If you haven’t realised, all the case study and essays questions that you always make you feel uncomfortable, perspiring, suffocating, are questions of highly analytical nature.

And that’s where the 2 common mistakes arise.

MISTAKE NO. 1: Failure to identify the correct analysis required

Here’s something useful right away: the paper tests 5 skills: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis and evaluation.

The most difficult is ANALYSIS. And here’s the solution: Analysis requires you to be very detailed and thorough. All you need to do is to be thorough in your explanation of the key concepts in question

Let me illustrate:

NJC 2008 Prelim Section A, Q1(c):
“Using economic analysis, discuss the possible impact on the macroeconomy of UAE, as a result of persistent increases in the price of oil worldwide.” [6]

Let me think aloud here: the command word here is discuss, so I’ll reserve 2m for evaluation. So left 4m for analysis. So identify 2 points to analyse will do. The phrase “using economic analysis’ almost always suggest that you cannot extract the idea from the case, and so you’ll have to recall and brainstorm from your 2 years of learning.

So I’ll need 2 macro impacts. And obviously NEGATIVE impacts, since oil price goes up.

How to think of possible impacts? Simple. Just think in terms of the Macroeconomic Objectives of the government. Out of the 4 objectives, you’ll have to pick your 2 that you can explain the best.

For eg, I choose to tackle (i) inflation and (ii) unemployment.

Oil price leads to inflation. Now saying is not enough, coz there is almost NO ANALYSIS demonstrated. So you’ll have to very detailed. And S’pore context requires you to apply…

{S’pore being heavily reliant on trade, imports practically everything, from goods for consumption and also goods that are used in production. Thus, imported inflation is severe for S’pore, as oil price will drive the price of imports upwards.}

That’s your 2 marks. Easy right?

(Note: On our website, members’ section only, we have full answers to the essay and case studies for every JC, MI and IB Schools. If you wish to have access, just sign in here

MISTAKE NO. 2: Failure to provide relevant evaluation that stems from the analysis.

Now this is surprisingly the easier part of the 2. Yet many students still admit they are largely clueless about demonstrating evaluation skills.

In a nutshell, what you aim to evaluate and to sound “balanced”, has to stem from your earlier analysis.

Otherwise, the evaluation is of lower quality and may yield no marks.

Obviously, this skill is best demonstrated with an example. In our Economics Exam Skills Intensive Workshops, we are very thorough in imparting these high scoring exam skills to all our students.

Toxicity of barium and barium enema

Toxicity Of Barium And Barium Enema

Barium was first isolated in 1808 by English chemist Sir Humphry Davy. In 1807 and 1808, Davy also discovered five other new elements: sodium, potassium, strontium, calcium, and magnesium. All of these elements had been recognized much earlier as new substances, but Davy was the first to prepare them in pure form.  Barium had first been identified as a new material in 1774 by Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele (1742-86). The form with which Scheele worked, however, was a compound of barium, barium sulfate (BaSO4) that, in fact, is the most common naturally occurring ore of barium. It is generally known as barite or barytes.

Barium is a member of the alkaline earth metals. The alkaline earth metals make up Group 2 (IIA) of the periodic table. The other elements in this group are beryllium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, and radium. These elements tend to be relatively active chemically and form a number of important and useful compounds. They also tend to occur abundantly in the Earth’s crust in a number of familiar minerals such as aragonite, calcite, chalk, Limestone, marble, travertine, magnesite, and dolomite. Alkaline earth compounds are widely used as building materials.

Barium itself tends to have relatively few commercial uses. However, its compounds have a wide variety of applications in industry and medicine. Barium sulfate is used in X-ray studies of the gastrointestinal (GI) system. The GI system includes the stomach, intestines, and associated organs. The first mention of barium compounds goes back to the early seventeenth century. Early records mention a “Bologna stone,” named for the city of Bologna, Italy. The Bologna stone glowed in the dark.

For more than a hundred years, researchers labored without being able to identify the elements in the stone. In 1774, Scheele announced the presence of a new element in the Bologna stone. Today, scientists know that the stone was a form of barite. Five years later, Scheele demonstrated that barite was also present in heavy spar. This dense transparent mineral closely resembles ordinary spar, a compound of calcium.  

Pure barium is a pale yellow, somewhat shiny, somewhat malleable metal. When heated, barium compounds give off a pale yellow-green flame. This property is used as a test for barium. Barium is an active metal. It combines easily with oxygen, the halogens, and other non-metals. Barium also reacts with water and with most acids. It is so reactive that it must be stored under kerosene, petroleum, or some other oily liquid to prevent it from reacting with oxygen and moisture in the air. Of the alkaline family, only radium is more reactive.  

Barium is the fourteenth most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. Its abundance is estimated to be about 0.05 percent. The most common sources of barium are barite and witherite. Witherite is an ore containing barium carbonate (BaCO3). The world’s major sources of barium ores are China, India, Morocco, the United States, Turkey, and Kazakhstan. Most of the barium processed in the United States comes from Louisiana, Nevada, and Texas. There are seven naturally occurring isotopes of barium: barium-130, barium-132, barium-134, barium-135, barium-136, barium-137, and barium-138. About a dozen radioactive isotopes of barium are known also. None of the isotopes of barium has any practical commercial application. Pure barium is produced by reacting barium oxide (BaO) with aluminum or silicon.

Barium metal has relatively few uses because it is so active. This activity makes it an excellent “getter” or “scavenger” when removing unwanted oxygen from sealed glass containers. (Oxygen can interfere with the operation of a vacuum tube, for example.) By adding a small amount of barium to the tube, the free oxygen inside will be “soaked up.” The oxygen reacts with the barium to form barium oxide. Compounds of barium, especially barite (BaSO4), are critical to the petroleum industry. Barite is used as a weighting agent in drilling new oil wells. A weighting agent is a material that adds body to petroleum.

Drilling for oil used to produce huge gushers. A gusher is an oil that sprays out of the well into the air. Gushers are undesirable, because they waste oil and can burn for months if ignited. Gushers are caused by the pressure of oil rushing into a newly drilled hole in the ground. This pressure pushes the oil upward much too rapidly. Barite is added to the hole as it is drilled. There, it tends to mix with oil in the ground and form a very dense mixture that comes out much more slowly and under control. Ninety percent of the barite mined in the United States is used by the petroleum industry.

There are many other uses of barite and other barium compounds. Barium sulfate (barite) is used to add body to or as a coating for paper products; as a white coloring agent in paints, inks, plastics, and textiles; in the manufacture of rubber products; in the production of batteries; in medical applications. Barium carbonate (BaCO3) is used in the production of chlorine and sodium hydroxide; as rat poison; in special types of glass. Barium oxide (BaO) is used to remove water from solvents; in the petroleum industry. Barium nitrate (Ba(NO3)2) is used in fireworks; as rat poison; in special ceramic glazes. Barium and all of its compounds are very toxic.

Perhaps the best known use of barium compounds is in medicine. Doctors often want to know what is happening inside a patient’s body. One way to find out, of course, is through surgery. But surgery is a drastic procedure. It can cause new problems for the patient. As a result, medical researchers have developed procedures that are less extreme. One such method is called radiography. Radiography is a technique in which X rays are passed through the body. X rays are high energy light waves. They can pass through skin and tissue, but are absorbed by bones. So X rays are a good way of finding out if a bone is broken, for example.

Any type of light appearing on film from an X ray produces a black area, or exposure. The X rays pass through soft issues, exposing the film. Bones look greyish white on the film, depending on how much energy gets through. Radiography can be also be used for studying parts of the body where bones are not involved. For example, a doctor might want to study a person’s stomach. Since there are no bones in the stomach, some other method must be used to see inside the stomach.

Barium sulfate is often used in such cases. Barium sulfate has some of the same properties as bony material. Therefore, since X rays will not pass through barium sulfate, this compound can be used to examine certain soft tissues. Radiography using barium sulfate is called a barium swallow or a barium enema. Barium sulfate is mixed with water into a slurry (mixture) that looks and tastes like ground-up chalk. The patient swallows the dense mixture. A doctor or nurse then holds a fluoroscope over the patient’s abdomen. The fluoroscope emits X rays that show up on a television screen.

The barium sulfate-water mixture slowly travels down the patient’s throat, into the stomach, through the intestines, and out through the bowels. As the barium sulfate coats the lining of the digestive tract, a doctor can see if anything is wrong. How can a toxic compound like barium sulfate be used for this procedure? Barium sulfate does not dissolve in water. So it cannot enter the blood stream. If it cannot get into the blood, it has no toxic effects. The barium sulfate is eliminated through the bowels a few hours after the procedure.

Home remedies for removing unwanted warts

Home Remedies for Removing Unwanted Warts

Are you a believer in home remedies?  It seems as if home remedies have been used since the beginning of time. While a large number of individuals feel that home remedies are only a waste of time, there are others who literally live by them. If properly done, there are a number of health conditions that can be treated or prevented with home remedies. One of those conditions is warts.

Warts are often deemed as unwanted or as unpleasant. This is because they are growths that appear on the skin.  These growths are, almost always, non-cancerous, but they are still unwanted. If you are looking for an effective, but low-cost way to have your wart or warts removed, you may want to think about trying a home remedy. Online you can find a number of these home remedies. If you are interested in getting started, a few popular wart removal home remedies are described below.

Perhaps, the most popular home remedy used to remove warts involves duct tape. It has been said; in fact, it has also been backed by scientific research, that duct tape is effective at removing or eliminating warts. If you are interested in giving this home remedy a try, you will need to apply duct tape to your warts. After keeping the warts covered, for about a week, you will want to remove the tape, soak your wart in water, and then scrub it with a pumice stone.  If your wart does not come off right away, you are advised to repeat the procedure again, for at least another one to two weeks.

It has also been said that aloe is effective at eliminating warts.  You are advised to soak a small cotton ball in aloe, preferably the gel.  After the soaking has occurred, for around about a minute or so, you will want to tape the cotton ball to your wart.  You will want to add aloe to the wart or piece of cotton every few hours.  By leaving the cotton ball in place, with the exception of changing it daily, your wart should fall off in a few days or weeks.

Apparently, caster oil is also considered an effective wart removal remedy. When using caster oil, you will want to apply the oil to your wart. It is then suggested that you rub or massage the area with your fingers.  After doing this day and night for a number of weeks, your wart should disappear.  You could also use caster oil by apply it directly to the wart, twice a day, and by keeping it covered.  By keeping the wart covered with a bandage, only to remove it when changing, the wart should disappear after about three weeks.

The above mentioned home remedies are just a few of the many that you can find online or in a home remedy book.  Additional remedies include using chalk, dandelion, aspirin, bananas, baking soda, papaya, lemon juice, and milkweed.  When choosing a home remedy, it is important to keep the ingredients in mind. You will want to refrain from using any items that you may be allergic to.  If and when you are in doubt, it may be best to choose another home remedy to use.

It is also important to remember, when using home remedies for wart removal, that the results are not guaranteed. Just because one home remedy worked for someone else, it does not mean that it will also work for you.  However, with a wide variety of different home remedies to choose from, you are sure to find at least one successful remedy.
