    1. Edward Thorndike's three laws of learning. The page does not explain this, but his theories came out in about 1900. His three laws of learning appear to be relevant to our course work. This simple page features black text on a white page. It is brief and it simply describes the three laws of learning. rating 5/5

    1. EXERCISE AND ENVIRONMENT AS AN INTERVENTION FOR NEONATALALCOHOL EFFECTS ON HIPPOCAMPAL ADULT NEUROGENESIS ANDLEARNING

      This article discusses the effects of fetal alcohol exposure in adult learning by studying the effects of exercises that stimulates the hippo-campus in the adult rats that were effected by fetal alcohol exposure. The study is entirely based on the scientific research of the neurology of the participants, but provides a course of action that could be applied to human participants as well. The encouraging results indicated that partial restoration of neurological functions in the adult rats was achieved. This inspires hope of introducing exercise to human participants and warrants further exploration of the application to humans since this is not an invasive therapy with low risk to participants. This may also provide some educational changes in special education to include exercise as part of the classroom experience.

    1. If you replace >> with >>= \_ ->, it's easy to see why it acts like it does.

      TODO: exercise for the reader.

      Answer: It's because (>>=), as defined, when given a Nothing as the left arg, just doesn't care about the right arg; it's going to yield Nothing. Kind of like the honey badger.

    2. We couldn't have achieved this by just using Maybe as an applicative. If you try it, you'll get stuck, because applicative functors don't allow for the applicative values to interact with each other very much.

      TODO: exercise for the reader. :)

      See my first attempt at this here (specifically, the land function at the bottom of the file). (There's also an Hspec unit test as a sibling to this file.)

      Maybe I'm not understanding something important yet, but it's working.

      Maybe he just hasn't worked up to Monads as state holders yet? Using the "-:" operator he defined basically just results in passing state along in a series of calls, which seems pretty similar, in this application, to ">>=".

      Tento článek se týká zajimavého aspektu čechů kazdodenni zivota : spodní prádlo. Samožřejmě rozdíly vkusu mezi muži a ženami se objeví.

      Tak, co se týká žen, na útraty dříve oblíbených tangy čím dál víc preferují brazilky a bokové kalhotky. Navíc, ceské ženy raději nosily pohodlí podprsenky včetně sportovní podprsenky než push-up čí kosticové podprsenky. Vsak ceské ženy stále maji rady krasné prádla , jak vyplývá z toho, že podíl modelů se zajímavými detaily jako jsou krajky či pásky neustále stoupá.

      Na druhé straně, muzi jsou předvídatelně vic konzervativní. Ceské muži jsou pravděpodobnější věrni značkám, včetně prémiovým značkám. Na základě toho, muzi projeví vyšší ochota utratit víc peněz za spodní prádlo. O barvách velmi originalni nejsou : převážně kupujou černé čí bílé čí šedé prádlo.

      Avšak, oba pohlaví maji radi bavlněné prádla. Zájimavě Slovenskě ženy v průmerů zaplatí za podprsenky skoro 100 korun víc než ceskě ženy.

    1. Epicatechin is known to prompt cells that line blood vessels to release extra nitric oxide, a substance that has multiple effects in the body. Nitric oxide slightly increases vasodilation, or a widening of the veins and arteries, improving blood flow and cardiac function. It also gooses muscle cells to take in more blood sugar, providing them with more energy, and it enhances the passage of oxygen into cells.

    1. Exercise is often positioned as something that always lowers blood glucose; however, high-intensity exercise, such as sprinting or weight lifting, can sometimes raise blood glucose. This stems from the adrenaline response, which tells the body to release stored glucose. Often, I find this happens when I’m exercising in the morning on an empty stomach. But this is not a reason to avoid high intensity exercise – studies show it can improve blood glucose for one to three days post-exercise! Note that in some cases high-intensity exercise can also drop blood glucose very rapidly (2-3 mg/dl per minute), especially if you have insulin on board in your pump. The best way to see how individual exercise sessions affect your blood glucose is to test prior and after activity. “The Impact of brief, high-intensity exercise on blood glucose levels” (Diabetes Metab Syndr Obes 2013)
    1. One way exercise can protect against atherosclerosis (and therefore heart disease) is by increasing shear stress on the arterial walls, which causes the endothelium to become less permeable (less accepting of oxidized LDL particles) and produce more nitric oxide (a potent inhibitor of LDL oxidation). You can think of exercise, then, not just as training for your muscles, but also for your arterial walls. It’s enough of an inflammatory stressor to induce an adaptive response. Of course, too much shear stress can be too inflammatory and might actually cause atherosclerosis to progress.

    1. Exercise: role-playing about a second half of the19th century vals. They do some groups to make all this points and explain to the rest of the groups their researches.

      • First step: students should make a little research about changes over the borders of the Austria-Hungarian Empire. Goal: to know where the Empire was.
      • Second step: common features about climate traits that determine some social relationships.
      • Third step: virtual guides over some cities like Vienna, Hamburg, Budapest: cultural characteristics (folklore, mores). Main monuments of these cities and organisation of the city.
      • Fourth step: little research about nationalism, romanticism, Court culture. Little comparison with Wagner’s nationalism.
      • Fifth step: about garments instead of being dressed like in this period, they have to come to the classroom dressed formally as nowadays but with some characteristic elements like medals, tiara, etc.
      • Sixth step: Dance with each other and ENJOY! Trying to have some characteristic features on their behaviour and acting like Germans, Austrians, Czechs, etc. as seen in classroom: who can fit or not with each other and why; mainly everyone against the Austrians. o Besides: not everyone is a high social class, but most of them acting like servants.

    1. elementary school children become increasingly inattentive in class when recess is delayed. Similarly, studies conducted in French and Canadian elementary schools over a period of four years found that regular physical activity had positive effects on academic performance. Spending one third of the school day in physical education, art, and music improved not only physical fitness, but attitudes toward learning and test scores. These findings echo those from one analysis of 200 studies on the effects of exercise on cognitive functioning, which also suggests that physical activity promotes learning.

    1. The movie "Happy" (http://www.thehappymovie.com) claims that there is something about movement that stimulates feelings of happiness in people in a very direct physiological way. Watching children and animals, it is not a stretch to see a natural connection between joy and movement for living beings. Many great thinkers have noted that the happiness that humans seek is the feeling of aliveness. It seems to me that movement is the very symbol and epitome of being alive - at a very basic physical level, it is the foundation for freedom, empowerment, and generative power. Thus, if one is not enjoying movement, then one is feeling the opposite of aliveness - burdened and enslaved by it. I think it's as simple as that - if you feel enslaved by any activity or anything, it cannot contribute to your sense of liberty and aliveness, can it? Until you can feel movement to be a liberating enlivening thing, it cannot increase your happiness and will actually do the opposite, drag you down.The good news, however, is that we all really enjoy movement, naturally, but have just forgotten - we have turned exercise into a job, an obligation, and forgotten the joy we once felt in it as children. I think everyone can recapture that joy, if they can find the right context and the right kind of movement to enjoy again, and if they can shift their perspective to movement as a source of potential pleasure rather than pain or boredom.

      This reminds me somewhat of the "Primal" notion of play.

    1. One of the greatest buffers against picking up others’ stress is stable and strong self-esteem. The higher your self-esteem, the more likely you will feel that you can deal with whatever situation you face. If you are finding yourself being impacted by others’ moods, stop and remind yourself how things are going well and that you can handle anything that comes your way. Exercise is one of the best ways to build self-esteem, because your brain records a victory every time you exercise, via endorphins.

    1. In the Middle Ages, just the opposite was true. Reading was generally done aloud, often to an audience. It was an active process, so active that Susan Noakes, in her analysis of medieval reading, points out “that it had been recommended by physicians, since classical times, as a mild form of exercise, like walking.”

      Reading in the Middle Ages considered a mild form of exercise.

    1. The remembrance of such admonitions will attend him to old age and will be of use even for the formation of his character. It is possible for him, also, to learn the sayings of eminent men, and select passages, chiefly from the poets (for the reading of poets is more pleasing to the young), in his play-time. Memory (as I shall show in its proper place) is most necessary to an orator and is eminently strengthened and nourished by exercise; and, at the age of which we are now speaking, and which cannot, as yet, produce anything of itself, it is almost the only faculty that can be improved by the aid of teachers.
