Speed reading

book

In the technological era of today, there are tons of information available for better use. Modern young people of different professional disciplines including engineering, law, economics and finance, have reading comprehension to enable themselves to succeed. IT sector, for instance, is growing at a very fast pace so it is inevitable for engineers to sort the enormously huge block of information in order to catch up with the recent trend. This reserves speed reading quite an important place among broad choice of skills one may wish to possess.

There is no individual not able to read quickly, ensuring that all people are able to increase reading speed. You can grasp the point of the speed reading by picking up with different techniques, but the skill is usually acquired by practice. There are several techniques available, but they all share the common idea. It is not supernatural, but believe in such powers will help to develop ways. It has to deal with high focus and perseverance. The pace of speed at which you read texts is also related to knowledge base you had already acquired so far. Try to remember, the more you become familiar with a text, the faster your reading speed.

It is not a secret that I do jogging, I jogged up the topmost of Hong Kong the Victoria Peak for two times, many more times the Almaty peak of Kok-tobe and the famous stairs of Medeo. You may also try a favorable combination of two, jogging and speed reading. The Science Center of Almaty keeps million copies of literature, but also serves a good jogging track on the outside. When I arrive at the library I always jog a circle or two around the Center and get into reading after that. I sometimes use chronograph in tracking speed of reading to know how long it will take me to finish with the text, so I could start a new book. This not only be applied to book reading, of course, but it is even more widely applicable to daily news reading and it is a quick way to view RSS feeds. I presume the latter example gives an idea of how it works, but only superficially.

So it is feasible to work through the big passage of reading material over shorter-term. Everyone is able to enrich one’s experience in reading, just be sure to take most of the time whilst practicing on reading at speeds faster than standard.

Jogging up to the peak of Kok-Tobe

To the great joy of all, my darlings and I run up to the city peak of Kok-Tobe the other day. Why would I ask my beloved to jog up to the peak, instead of going to cinema or eating cakes at some fancy coffeshop? Actually, they can have fun with their friends where doing well without my serve, but I would rather show a special way to go through hard times that be the aim.

Denoting Green Hill from Kazakh language, Kok-Tobe is lying within the limits of Almaty and stated to be the highest point of the city. It is easy accessible and makes an amazing jogging route of about 12 minutes in length from the bottom to the top. The relevancy of this approach to running up to the peak is, of course, that physical activity reduces stress. Besides, dear reach the pointed top feeling uplifted, finding herself at the topmost of the city, above everything else!

It is even possible to measure the amount of time needed to get out of a bad mood, as it takes only 10 minutes to be relieved of a worry or any unpleasant concern. Hurray! Get 12 minutes of jogging to be in a better feeling, so could easily see the brighter side. Unbelievable!!

three-in-oneCome on, come up and try it! First to ascertain in a note, second to feel the ease that follows!

In fact, the Kok-Tobe is far not the highest peak there to reach. Ultimately, the peak only serves the purpose of the city’s landmark and it is just one out of the numerous footpaths leading to the countless observation points above the city. However, sometimes taking a deep breath is enough; just make sure you get beyond the polluted air making the fresh breath available.

Universal Translator

Common to many science fiction works, a universal translator is a device used to remove the problem of translating between alien languages when a new species or culture is encountered (встречаются). Nowadays, scientists work towards similar real-world technologies, including voice recognition systems and even real time translation of video calls. As a convention to movie plots, universal translator requires an instant speech translation feature. In this special note however, the universal translator term has also been loosely applied to such notion as development concept, and it speaks that as such.

I would like to share my story of using the universal translator. I work closely with different kinds of texts as a fact of a matter, including professional texts prepared in English and Traditional Chinese. I myself am a native Russian speaker who performs translation almost everyday, starting from short notes concerning lifestyle to economic editorials on live bullion market specials, as well as commentaries to translation of books and academic papers including research papers. In this regard, it is inevitable having to get the best use of so-called universal translators as ones provided by google.

It is really is magical how people around the globe who are interested in any given particular subject, should easily be able to collect the most precious piece of information presented on any world language with only a click. For many topics a superficial translation is, of course, not enough where deep investigation and cognitive effort is required. The worth of universal translator, however should not be diminished by that alone, taking it as a favorable tool to proceed those investigations in itself.

As was said, people of the 21st century are researches, giving its tendencies to understand the world around us in a thorough manner, in persistent attitude. Apart from livelihood, there is also an emerging tide of contributors (лица, вносящие вклад) in many, many, many, many, many fields of interests coming to evolve in changing the modern world of today. With all these possible outcomes to follow, there tends to be an unprecedented deformation awaiting to occur.

The change is eternal. It is likewise inevitable to become more responsive to that change where the interchange of international views, goods and services, and other aspects of modern-life culture arising from globalization is taking an important place in the process of development at a very fast pace. The experience of foreign states is simply not be neglected, as it gives the sense of course perspective to us where emerging nations were headed with a relative degree of uncertainty. The study of foreign languages is regarded to be the most efficient way to make that sensibility clear, or at least to manage the change as a whole to be better.

I feel universal translator makes for quite a good tool in obtaining that knowledge and experiences awaiting our own discoveries. Regardless of the manner it is used, there is no official manner considered the appropriate approach regarding universal translator. Some would put the whole text in the box and simply perform its enhancement, while in other cases a profound understanding of a single word may serve as a stepping stone (средство для достижения цели) to broaden one’s horizons on the very way forward to achieve greater heights, as both a language of knowledge and the experiences in translatable union with the reader.

Maintaining a strict, no nonsense demeanor

Even if I have two dear sisters, and two most beloved cousins who obviously deserve my deepest care, why do I then still show concern for the young ladies of the beautiful feminine hand? Why should I give her my hand before she should stumble, to open doors each time she enters the room, move her a chair in the restaurant, to show romantic places and walk her not just to the street on which she lives, but to her door while captivated (пленять) in reminders of her unprecedented beauty? Perhaps it’s the truth to be spoken, but in doing so, I showed a darling some of the characteristics peculiar to the gentleman that she could notice of her future Cavalier (поклонник), her eternal consort.

chivalry11

There is known to me a term called ‘the named brother’, which describes a young man who comes to the aid of a young woman if ever she was to find herself in a bad or dangerous situation. But it often happens that an incident had already taken place in the past, however, ending any degree of assistance to be had. I on the other hand would have kindly listened to her when needed, and try in any way to prevent such a situation to happen in advance.

In fact, this approach is not new, but is no less important than in the past to bring it into action. In order to be full of care as it is, is to be as full of care as possible.

My 1st Blood Donation

I donated blood for a person who had surgery in winter 2015. Since then I’ve set a record of donating blood for 8 times in a single year. Although, this isn’t an absolute record, but it has been done according to one’s personal aspirations and social benefits at the same time. For those who have the opportunity to eat well, this is the issue.

For me, as a systematic unpaid donor, there is no choice to donate blood or blood components. When blood bank needs blood I donate blood, when the bank is in a lack of blood components I donate the components, and that’s the only aspect of the process where I’m limited.

I’m a lifer in such a way and hoping to accomplish my 65th blood donation or more, to share an important idea of how to raise one’s self-esteem, as the most important – your blood can safe people’s life.

Please notice and follow me.

Off with a jog and a wave

If you ask me where you could go for a jog in the morning, I would show you a peculiar place to go to. Same as if the fellows asked me where they could take their beloved, I would tell them where the romantic place is.

The scenic path I had been following appeared ahead of me, revealing itself only a few steps at a time. I started at a walk and quickened my pace to a jog, making sure that I could reach the falls.

On the way I was witnessed by two old ladies and was asked whether I was volunteering, on what I replied ‘yes’ to them. After receiving their thanks and blessings, I took off at a jog, to catch a few more falls.

By the time I reached every fall, I would steady myself and take several shots, both in mind and on camera, to memorize.

I was off with a jog and a wave, leaving negatives in the past.

Pick up litter and carry on

Come summertime, millions of people go to the nearest beach or mountain in search of a break from everyday life. I also go to nature, but upon arrival at a spot I often find much rubbish that has been left strewn around. While sometimes visitors collect refuse in a pile, they fail to actually dispose of it. They sometimes burn the pile of litter in an attempt to dispose of it, which is also not right, for it only decreases the volume of it and cannot burn it completely.

Untitled2

People know me to be keen on hiking, but I do not normally walk long-distance trails. Generally, I prefer no more than 15 kilometers of footpath, so I can do something special. Along the road I simply pick litter up which was left behind for ‘don’t know who’ to clean up and I carry it some distance to put the rubbish in its rightful place. I do so because I am convinced that the place for rubbish is at the dump, but definitely not high up in the mountains or downstream from river pools. In addition, this approach is the opportunity to provide public service on a volunteer basis, without actual participation in any programme.

I always bring my camera to photograph my natural surroundings, so I have been able to record the following process.

Cleaning (2)

In reality, some refuse won’t ever reach the landfill (a place where rubbish is deposited), and is going to decompose either around evergreen firs, or alongside rivers. Last weekend I cleared up the mountain by collecting kilograms of rubbish and brought it down to put in the container bin at my compound. Since there is no staff to collect refuse in the countryside, the only cure for the litter is us.

Аю-Сай

For me Nature is the great joy indeed, and litter picking-up is far, far the easiest thing that I do. I have never talked about my concern about the spoiling of natural areas, and someone may find my concern ridiculous and useless, though I have realized that being seen out there picking up other people’s rubbish does get the message across to many that they shouldn’t litter.

Why do I volunteer to pick up litter? There are tons of reasons given, but you can still think of your own reasons. You might say how annoyed you are with the issue. You may complain about selfishness and careless of others. Or else, for a start, you can certainly pick up litter and carry on.
