I long to rest in your love but some days I get so distractedby all that surrounds me:Friends or family members whose lives are not working,who are struggling with debt or addictions or loss,or who are living in loveless relationships filled with despair.Often I have no words-there are no words.I have only the gift of my presence, my love, my prayers.But too often these days my presence is insincere,my love shallow, my prayers thin and frail.I forget that you are here with them and with me.I forget that in you, all things are possible.I forget to rest, to trust, to depend on you.Forgive me, God.Remind me even as I pray, that you are already at workin the lives of those around me.Help me to remember that just as a seed is plantedin the dark, safe soil so that new life can grow,seeds of a different sort are sown in us,and may well give birth to hope, love, trust, and new life,if only we allow them to be nourished by the giftof your Spirit.Such growth is not mine to direct or force or manage.What am I to do, O GodPerhaps I am simply to trust, even when I doubtanything can grow in the poor, damaged soil of their lives.Perhaps I am to reflect on the fact that I need youas much as these others for whom I pray.Hear my prayers, dear One, for all of us.In the name of Christ, who came to earthand chose to be one with us,and knows us better than we know ourselves.
As you are reading a book, write your chapter summary right at the end of the chapter. If your reading session is over, this helps synthesize what you just read. When you pick up the book tomorrow start by reading the previous two chapter summaries to help prime your mind to where you are in the book.
Building vivid mental pictures is one of the most effective techniques for remembering anything, not least what we read. When you come across an important passage or concept, pause and visualize it. Make the picture as salient and distinctive as possible.
Competitive memorizers claim that practicing visualization techniques and using memory tricks enable them to remember large chunks of information quickly. Research shows that students who use memory tricks perform better than those who do not. Memory tricks help you expand your working memory and access long term memory. These techniques can also enable you to remember some concepts for years or even for life. Finally, memory tricks like these lead to understanding and higher order thinking. Keep reading for an introduction to effective memorization techniques that will help you in school.
In addition to visual and spatial memory techniques, there are many others tricks you can use to help your brain remember information. Here are some simple tips to try. Check out this video from the Learning Center for a quick explanation of many of these tips.
Use distributed practice. For a concept to move from your temporary working memory to your long-term memory, two things need to happen: the concept should be memorable and it should be repeated. Use repetition to firmly lodge information in your memory. Repetition techniques can involve things like flash cards, using the simple tips in this section, and self-testing. Space out your studying and repetition over several days, and start to increase the time in between each study session. Spacing it out and gradually extending the times in between can help us become more certain of mastery and lock the concepts into place.
Exercise! Seriously! Studies show that exercise can improve our memory and learning capabilities because it helps create neurons in areas that relate to memory. Cardio and resistance training (weights) both have powerful effects, so do what works best for you.
Visual and spatial techniques are memory tricks that involve your five senses. They utilize images, songs, feelings, and our bodies to help information stick. Humans have outstanding visual and spatial memory systems. When you use visual and spatial memory techniques, you use fun, memorable, and creative approaches rather than boring, rote memorization. This makes it easier to see, feel, or hear the things you want to remember. Visual and spatial techniques also free up your working memory. When you group things together, you enhance your long-term memory. Using visual and spatial techniques helps your mind focus and pay attention when your mind would rather wander to something else. They help you make what you learn meaningful, memorable, and fun.
The five senses. Using as many of the five senses as possible when studying helps you use more parts of your brain and retain information better. For example, if studying for an anatomy exam, pick up the anatomy models, feel each part, and say the names of them out loud.
Some of these techniques can feel strange at first or take some time to develop. The more you practice them, the easier and more natural they become, and the more information you can commit to memory. Also, remember that you do not need to do every tip on this list. Experiment with a few and find which ones work for you.
If your spouse and children are remaining behind in your country, be prepared to explain how they will support themselves in your absence. This can be especially difficult to explain if you are the primary source of income for your family. If the consular officer gains the impression that you intend to support your family with money you may earn during your studies in the United States, your student visa application will almost certainly be denied. If your family decides to join you at a later time, it may be helpful to have them apply at the same post where you applied for your visa, but that is not always required if your family is living in another district.

\"When you can remember someone's name, it shows them that they are important to you and this can build rapport,\" says Chester Santos, the \"The International Man of Memory\", an award-winning international speaker, U.S. memory champion and author of \"Instant Memory Training for Success,\" in an email with CNBC. \"Conversely, if you are forgetting names or calling people by the wrong name, it can be very detrimental to business and personal relationships.\"
\"It's hard to show somebody you are going to care for their business if you don't care enough just to remember their name,\" says Jim Kwik, brain coach and founder of Kwik Learning & SuperheroYou, in a memory training video shared with CNBC by Kwik. He is an expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, brain performance and accelerated learning and has an impressive client roster including Virgin, Nike, Zappos, SpaceX, NYU, GE, Fox Studios, Harvard and Singularity University.
\"There is no getting around the fact that in order to remember someone's name, you must focus on it for at least one to two seconds. So, the first thing you should get into the habit of doing is to immediately repeat the name and shake the person's hand. If you are introduced to someone named John, you will say something to the effect of, 'Nice to meet you, John' or, 'Pleased to meet you, John,' while shaking his hand,\" says Santos. \"This forces you to focus and pay attention to the name. That's the only way that you would be able to repeat the person's name back to them while shaking their hand. A lot of times when someone introduces themselves to us we are paying no attention at all to the name.\"
\"A lot of people don't remember people's names because they are not silent. They are having a question in their head, 'How do I know this person What's this person's name What am I going to talk about' They are actually more interested in what they are going to respond with than they are in actually listening to the person. So first, be silent,\" says Kwik.
\"Pick out a facial feature that may be easy to remember. Look at the person's face and search for the most distinguishing feature, whether it is a small nose, large ears, unusual hairdo, or deep dimples. Often the first outstanding feature you notice is the easiest to recall later,\" says Small.
\"Think of a connection between the person's name and anything at all that you already know. I really do mean anything. The name John might make you think of John Lennon, the Gospel of John in the Bible, John F. Kennedy, or it could even simply be that you have a friend or family member that is also named John,\" says Santos. \"Thinking of a connection between the name and literally anything that you already know will really help the name to stick well in your mind.\"
Often times, our ability to recall images is stronger than our ability to recall words or names. So if you have a name linked to an image, that can help trigger your memory. For example, if you meet a \"Steve\" think of a \"stove\" at the same time. If you meet a \"Paul,\" think of a \"ball,\" says White. \"You remember pictures more than words. How many times have you said, 'I remember the face but not the name' You remember what you see more than what you hear. Create an image for their name.\"
\"If the person has big ears and their name is Brian. Imagine a brain coming out of their ears. If their name is Brian and they have thick eyebrows imagine the brain in their eyebrows. When you see them again don't try to recall the name, instead ask yourself, 'What was their unique feature' You will remember eyebrows and then you will remember brain and Brian,\" explains White.
\"If Jane has beautiful hair, you'll see the chain running through her hair. If Mike has big ears, you'll see a mic coming out of each ear. If Bill has a big nose, then a dollar bill is spinning on his nose. It might seem
