As undergrad, I struggled immensely with this: reading and omg understanding papers.

Especially as non-native English speaker.

I did develop a system that helped me back then.

Bear with me it is pretty...mundane. 1/n

#reading #PhDLife #PDlife #undergradlife #papers #science
I printed each paper. And while reading I used a yellow, a green, and a pink highlighter.

When reading, I labeled every first mention of an abbreviation in green.

This helped me to find their meaning quickly again when deep into the text.

In pink, I labeled key questions and take-home messages.

If done correctly, you can look at pink sentences alone and recap the whole paper.

Peo-rip: first and last sentences of paragraphs often are pink sentences.

Pro-tip 2: write papers that have pink sentences.

Honest first thought? The fact that the cover has praise from the author of Wonder pretty much is making me side-eye the book already.

But I'm going to give this one a chance...
The dedication, though... To all the "amazing" kids living with a disability?

So much condescension.

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

A few main points from 'Just reading: the impact of faster pace reading on poorer adolescent readers' (Literacy Journal, May 2019): #reading #literacy #TeamEnglish 1. A fast read through aims to give students an uninterrupted and sustained reading experience.
2. Poorer readers are more likely to be expected to focus on discrete skills, slowing down the reading process 3. However, 'listening to and following a text read aloud by a more capable reader...a less fluent reader can experience autonomy and fluency'.
4. Teachers read the novel every day for around 20 minutes, pausing only if they became aware of comprehension difficulties. 5. Reading was 'positioned as the core activity' not a marginal one. 6. Teachers quickly recapped content of the novel from the day before.

I am #Reading #Ambedkar "#Pakistan or the Partition of #India. and sharing here.
"Burying Pakistan is not same as burying the Ghost of Pakistan. So long as the hostility to one Central Government for India, which is the ideology underlying Pakistan persists, the ghost of Pakistan will be there, casting its ominous shadow upon the political future of India."
"The Muslim way of escape from the tyranny of Hindu center is to have no Central Government at all." - Ambedkar to ensure Muslim provinces as islands of Islamic rule within India.

In the deepest recesses of my memory are images of illustrated classics that have stayed with me and still give me a thrill. One such image is of a raft-wrecked and exhausted Odysseus who is desperately trying to make his way to land but is confounded by the vengeful Poseidon
who brews vicious storms and mighty waves. The artist in that comic book captured it so well. I just saw that image again after decades & it evoked so many memories. Years later as I revisit the The Odyssey through a late 19th century translation and read the following:
I am reminded of the feeling of awe that it first inspired:

"So for two nights and two days he was wandering in the swell of the sea, and much his heart boded of death ... but when he was within earshot of the shore, and heard now the thunder of the sea against the reefs ..

If, like me, you have the desire to help but are unsure of how, because things feel seismic and primal and massive, I propose one thing we can always do to avoid #paralysis is begin with personal practice. #BlackLivesMatter
We become what we practice.
#Practice a skill and you become better at it. Cease its practice and you become better at its opposite. There's no status quo. We are always practicing something. #BlackLivesMatter
If I cease practicing the acquisition, validation and refinement of knowledge, I don't just become worse at learning, I become better at misinformation and ignorance. #BlackLivesMatter

Growth of a company

Points to check

1. Sales growth Rate % wrt peers
2. Sales growth coming organically vs acquisitions

EPS is only one no. Find sources of this no.

Points to check if sudden drop in free cash flow or muted free cash flows, instead having good cash flow from operations.

1. Check Financial inflows, sometimes companies report this under cash from operation to inflate the nos.
2. Expense capitalization, under Investing.
Sales vs Expense

Points to check

1. Sales breakup product sales vs one time sales
2. Growth in expense with respect to sales, sometimes companies do under reporting to boost EPS and capitalize expense under assets

It is 2020!
At the beginning of each #newyear, we make #new plans, new #resolutions, new #goals , want new #directions, forge new #paths and much more. This is wonderful. It sounds like we all want #CLARITY in our hearts about what to do and how to get it done. @PD_PneumaFaith
As I was thinking about this over the last couple of weeks, the scripture for #PneumaFaith kept coming to my mind. "The unfolding of your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalms 119:130 NIV). @PD_PneumaFaith
The word #UNFOLDING is used in many translations of this verse (#entrance, #teaching, #revelation, #explanation #disclosure #opening #declaration) Whatever translation we read, it implies the #reading or #meditation of the #word brings #light, #illumination ...

Lets talk about John Maynard #Keynes and his #Passion for #Art...
John Maynard #Keynes is perhaps most famous for his 1936 Magnum Opus, The General #Theory of #Employment, #Interest, and #Money in which he argued for a more active role of #FiscalPolicy in #Macroeconomic management...
It is hardly disputable that #Keynes' work, and his subsequent roles during the #BrettonWoods era marked a significant intellectual shift in the way we have come to understand #Economics as a discipline...
