How Intuition Influences our Thought Process

How Intuition Influences our Thought Process | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it


As we saw with an earlier post, intuition arrives first when we make decisions. But, how does this happen? How does intuition become involved in our response to an event? Consider for a moment a restaurant’s ambiance. Objectively, it has nothing to do with the food; however, if it’s unclean, disorderly and ugly we will tend to feel there is also something wrong with the food. Why do children ask their moms and dads, “Are you in a good mood?” They know their parents’ emotional state will affect their decision-making......

Blurred Boundaries: A New World for Some Foundation/Grantee Partnerships

Blurred Boundaries: A New World for Some Foundation/Grantee Partnerships | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
We all know that the relationship between foundations and nonprofits is often a highly unequal one. But not all foundation-nonprofit relationships are the same. A study of 33 private foundations revealed many cases in which foundations engage in highly intimate partnerships with select grantees. These partnerships blur the usual boundaries between foundation and nonprofit and are characterized by heightened expectations regarding transparency, willingness to take risks, commitment to elevated impact, and meaningful value creation.

How the Cold, Dead Hand of John Dryden Still Perpetuates Grammar Myths – Lingua Franca - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

How the Cold, Dead Hand of John Dryden Still Perpetuates Grammar Myths – Lingua Franca - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Dryden famously invented the myth that sentence-ending prepositions are an error.... Nearly three and a half centuries later there are still American writers and academics who think stranding a preposition is something to feel guilty about. Other admonishments: Avoid starting sentences with "that." Use "who" for people and "that" for things. "[A]void the words, don’t, can’t, shan’t, and the like abbreviations of syllables; which seem to ... savour of a little rusticity."

International Data Base (IDB) - U. S. Census Bureau

International Data Base (IDB) - U. S. Census Bureau | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
The International Data Base (IDB) was developed by the U.S. Census Bureau to provide access to accurate and timely demographic measures for populations around the world. The database includes a comprehensive set of indicators, as produced by the U.S. Census Bureau since the 1960s. Through sponsorship from various U.S. Government agencies, the IDB is updated on a regular basis to provide information needed for research, program planning, and policy-making decisions, in the U.S. and globally.
 
Data included in the IDB consist of indicators developed from censuses, surveys, administrative records, and special measures of HIV/AIDS-related mortality. Through evaluation and adjustment of data from these sources, measures of population, mortality, fertility, and net migration are estimated for current and past years and then used as the basis for projections to 2050.

Unless you can quickly and effectively answer the question; what do you do?,  you will miss many opportunities to grow your business. Given the importance of new business, it is vital that a business owner perfects their response to this common question asked when people meet for the first time.  This short article, should prove most useful, to anyone who has yet to perfect their elevator pitch.

Click for one-sheet Quick-Guide for Students & Teachers Whether they’re working in class or at home, students are accessing, viewing, creating, and sharing media as part of their day-to-day academic experiences. All of this is made possible by near ubiquitous access to digital devices and internet in schools and homes. While teachers are conscious of plagiarism when student products are in the form of research papers, the complicated areas of copyright, fair use, and open access creative works (such as Creative Commons or public domain) are less familiar but are just as important.
