You Can Make It If You Try
Presidential terms are measured by sweeping laws and stirring events, but legacies are about enduring ideas. The one Barack Obama has in mind will drive most everything he tries to do in the next four years: assuring that America is a place where anyone can make it.
Finagle's Laws:1. If an experiment works, something has gone wrong.2.1 No matter what result is anticipated, there is always someone willing tofake it.2.2 No matter what the result, there is always someone eager to misinterpret it.2.3 No matter what happens, there is always someone who believes it happenedaccording to his pet theory.3.0 In any collection of data, the figure most obviously correct, beyond allneed of checking, is the mistake.3.1 No one whom you ask for help will see it.3.2 Everyone who stops by with unsought advice will see it immediately.4. Once a job is fouled up, anything done to improve it only makes it worse.
Finagle's Rules:1. To study an application best, understand it thoroughly before you start.2. Always keep a record of data. It indicates you've been working.3. Always draw your curves, then plot the reading.4. In case of doubt, make it sound convincing.5. Program results should always be reproducible. They should all fail in thesame way.6. Do not believe in miracles. Rely on them.
Handy Guide to Modern Science:1. If it's green or it wriggles, it's biology.2. If it stinks, it's chemistry.3. If it doesn't work, it's physics.Cerf's Extensions to the Handy Guide to Modern Science:4. If it's incomprehensible, it's mathematics.5. If it doesn't make sense, it's either economics or psychology.
Gerrold's Laws of InfernalDynamics:1. An object in motion will always be headed in the wrong direction.2. An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.3. The energy required to change either one of these states will always be morethan you wish to expend, but never so much as to make the task totallyimpossible.
Worrying about pain is common. This worry can make you afraid to stay active, and it can separate you from your friends and family. Working with your doctor, you can find ways to continue to take part in physical and social activities despite having pain.
Life is short. Youth is finite. You have every opportunity to make the most of the life you have right now. Your choices today will determine the number of regrets you will have in the next ten years.
People make excuses because of the fear of the unknown. Others are just afraid of change, rejection and embarrassment. Fear locks you in your comfort zone. And nothing magical or remarkable happens in your safe zone. You can stop making excuses if you learn how to eliminate all traces of fear from your life.
That's how you build public reputation. A good or even great one. You can become the best in the world at something that people value. You may not be able to monetise from it immediately, but showing up everyday makes the biggest difference.
ou have everything you need to make an impact in the world. You don't even have to start your own business. What you need is something you can you can emotionally and deeply connect with. Don't think too far into the future. Use what you have right now at where you are and witness the magic of creative work. If you're thinking about it too much, chances are you're killing it.
Make time to pursue your passion project, no matter how busy you are. If you have always wanted to be a writer, and get a book published. Self-publish. Because you can. Amazon makes insanely easy to upload a manuscript, design a cover and hit publish. It's that easy. You don't have to wait to be chosen. You can choose yourself. You don't need permission to get your ideas to the right audience.
With a full-time job, and maybe a family, there won't be a perfect time, ever. You have to practically make those hours. Set aside a block of time to do what you love, cut out other stuff from your life that take up your time, and don't let anything interfere with that passion project.
"You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take." Wayne Gretzky could not have said that any better. You can only make progress if you take a step. Overcoming the fear of failing is the first step towards success. Start confronting your fears today. And take even the most basic step towards what you have to do.
Tony Robbins once said "No matter how many mistakes you make, or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying." Slow progress is better than no action at all. You can only change if you make an attempt to actually do something. Whatever you do, don't fail to try.
Some people with visual field loss may not be aware of the missing area of vision. Hemianopia can make reading difficult because it is hard to find the beginning or end of a line and find the next line. You might only notice the field loss if you look in a mirror and can only see one side of your face. It can be difficult to get around, particularly in unfamiliar or crowded places.
Visual field loss can improve and some people make a complete recovery. Many people will have a permanent visual field loss, but there are techniques to help you make the most of your remaining vision.
A patch over one eye can also be used to avoid double vision. This makes it easier to see, but using only one eye (monocular vision) can also cause some difficulty. You can work with an orthoptist to find out which option works best for you.
Some vision problems after stroke are due to the brain having difficulty processing the information received from the eyes and other senses. This can happen in many ways, for example difficulty recognising objects or people by sight, or recognising colours. It can cause difficulty when you try to reach for objects, or make it harder to see more than one object at the same time.
You may be given magnifiers for use with near objects and reading, or telescopes for distance. You can try anti-glare glasses or overlays, to reduce excessive glare. You can try using brighter lighting, and using colours to make household objects easier to find.
Castor oil can make you feel sick, which is the last thing you need during labour. Although this has been a traditional way of bringing on labour in the past, there is still no evidence that it works.
First, know your goal. Start by writing down your major goal. Your major goal is the ultimate thing you'd like to see happen. For example, "I want to make honor roll," or "I want to get fit enough to make the cross-country team," or even, "I want to play in the Olympics" are all major goals because they're the final thing the goal setter wants to see happen (obviously, some goals take longer and require more work than others). It's OK to dream big. That's how people accomplish stuff. You just have to remember that the bigger the goal, the more work it takes to get there.
Make it specific. It's easier to plan for and master a specific goal than a vague one. Let's say your goal is to get fit. That's pretty vague. Make it specific by defining what you want to achieve (such as muscle tone and definition or endurance), why you want to get fit, and by when. This helps you make a plan to reach your goal.
Break it down. Making any change takes self-discipline. You need to pay constant attention so you don't get sidetracked. One way to make this easier is to break a big goal into small steps. For example, let's say you want to run a marathon. If it's February and the marathon is in August, that's a realistic timeframe to prepare. Start by planning to run 2 miles and work up gradually to the distance you need.
Another common oversight is failing to appreciate how damaging interpersonal conflict can be and how hard it is to avoid. Interpersonal conflicts can harm a whole field by reducing trust and solidarity, which impedes coordination and makes recruitment much more difficult. Nobody wants to join a field where everybody is fighting with each other.
Season the ricotta cheese with a pinch of salt, and refrigerate it. Your reward will be fresh ricotta cheese, perfect for lasagna or almost any other ricotta recipe. Use it immediately, or freeze it for the next time you make lasagna soup.
As long as it still smells good, I would try again. But I would recommend you do something different. Try a different starter. Check to make sure your temperatures are within the correct range during each step. Try a different method of incubation, perhaps. See this post.
Hi!I did some yogurts using the ferment from another yogurt I did in my yogurt maker, but the process went wrong a some point. It has the consistency of mozzarella and is very acidic. Have you ever experienced that?I have been eating natto few days before, could that be the cause?
I left 1% milk in an instant pot at 110 degrees F without adding culture overnight. It was never heated to 180 degrees F, as it is an older instant pot and does not have that feature. Would it be okay if I heated the milk to 180 degrees F now and proceeded to make yogurt properly with it now??
Fantastic article Paula, many many thanks.Here is a puzzle; not her first Rodeo, using the Ninja Foodi and following the instructions closely to make yogurt: 4 Liters of Homo. Milk 3.25%, 6 tablespoons of plain 3% yogurt as a starter, 12 hour incubation, seemed good but soft at first and much firmer after cooling overnight, all is well.The intention was to make Middle Eastern cheese (AKA Shankleesh) via boiling the yogurt, surprisingly, after the usual boiling, the yogurt did not reform/disintegrate to be strained as usual but remained of milk consistency, any ideas as to why not, can it be salvaged and how please? 041b061a72
