The con is that there's a lot of uncertainty. It's time to break free from this conventional thinking. Instead of binary thinking, start thinking more abundantly. It's not this or that in life. You can have this and that. I always thought I had to either quit my business or take a job. Also, many of my friends think you should quit your job to start a business. Who ever said these things? When my business wasn't growing a few years ago, I just took a job at a large IT research firm. I did both things. This is what to do if someone is having a convulsive (tonic-clonic or clonic) seizure: The CDC advises you should dial 911 if it's the first time someone has had a seizure; PERFORM CPR If you're not trained in how to do CPR, or how to use a defibrillator, call 911 first as the trained operator can talk you through the techniques until the paramedics arrive. This is particularly important for children and infants as their CPR procedures are different to adults'. If you're not completely confident in giving rescue breathing then provide hands-only CPR. To provide hands-only CPR you will need to perform uninterrupted chest compressions until qualified medical help arrives. Place the heel of one hand on the center of the person's chest and, with the other hand on top of it, press down by about 2 inches. It's worth checking out a list of well-known songs with a tempo of 100-120 beats per minute and committing one to memory should you ever need to perform CPR. The Bee Gees' Stayin' Alive is a popular one, Rumour Has It by Adele and Justin Bieber's Sorry also qualify.

How would I know if the students understood? How would I understand their questions? I was a wreck--my mind raced, my attention jumped from one thing to another. All I could imagine was falling flat on my face in failure. I just wanted to run away. I was so anxious I couldn't sleep. The trip took an hour and a half longer than expected, due to flooding and bad roads. The bus was noisy, but I tried to focus on my notes. One teacher's laughter was so contagious that it drew me out of my own stressful thoughts. Why was I imagining that the workshop was going to fail? a cancer is eroding a bone or invading a nerve, then it is inevitable. Pain has evolved to protect us from physical damage. We pull our finger away from a burning flame. It is one of the cruelties of life that we have not developed the capacity to switch it off once the tissue is damaged. There is also distress caused by shortness of breath, which can be just as hideous as pain. I explain this to relatives by trying to link it to a situation we are familiar with in normal life. Imagine if that feeling went on and on for hours. is not the pain of sitting in Parisian cafes smoking Gauloises and talking about philosophy. This is the pain of staring into the abyss. Of knowing that your life is coming to an end, of having doubts about your lifelong beliefs.

Take a joke. Finally, in 2019, we saw a glimpse of a solution to this weirdness--when Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson flippantly mocked Congressman Dan Crenshaw's war wound on Weekend Update, saying it was received in a war or whatever. Davidson caught holy hell for a joke that was meant on its face to be deliberately awful. Davidson, no stranger to loss (his firefighter dad died on 9/11), knew that the casual dismissal of the Navy SEAL's permanent injury (the eye patch tells you the obvious) was meant to be funny by its awfulness. Therefore, if Davidson didn't actually know he was saying something awful, then it wouldn't be funny. But this point is too subtle: and Davidson incurred wrath from all sides, including me. The situation was remedied smartly when rising star Crenshaw showed up the following week to chat with troubled star Davidson, live on SNL. This is progress. We need more of this stuff. But it's also a tell. Teacher (or counselor) and student should evaluate the workspace without judgment or reprimand, and (using a timer to make it a finite, non-overwhelming project), together first, tackle supplies, texts, assignments, and homework in bite-sized bits. From there on out, use clear, short-worded directions provided both in writing and orally. For example, Monday may be Writing Implement Day, and might feature an index-card-sized, reusable reminder that reads: Pencils, 3. Highlighters, 2; Read it aloud, ask the Asperkid to repeat it back (to check for comprehension), and then hand it to him to use as a memory aide (he should return it to you upon completion). Reward participation and task completion initially, then phase that out with increasing independence becoming its own prize. Routinely issued deck/locker/cubby check-ins should occur for upkeep, rather than overhaul. That doesn't mean every so often - we're talking perhaps daily or maybe every other day, gauging the child's level of emotional energy. This is tough for her, so if she's worn or prickly, the result will not be an empowered Asperkid who is learning how to supplement deficient executive functioning, but a frazzled, tired, meltdown. Use a sticker chart or Lego, whatever works as frequent motivation;

Change of geometry: The room changes shape or an alternate reality is experienced. Mystical light: Some SDErs report a bright light that emits peace, love, and purity. Music and musical sounds: One man described it as the soft, wild notes of an Aeolian harp. Out-of-body-experience: SDErs sometimes report floating out of the body and seeing the scene, almost as a third-party observer. Co-living a life review: As summarized by one SDEr: I was standing in front of what felt like a large screen with my husband who had just died as we watched his life unfold before us. Some of what I saw I had not known before. Encountering unworldly or heavenly realms: SDErs report accounts similar to what NDErs describe. Mist at death: Some SDErs see a mist (white smoke or subtle steam) that is emitted from the dying person. haven't been popularized as much as NDEs. according to Dr Moody, reports of SDEs are on the rise. out if you feel forgotten. There is a lot of criticism about who and what is included in (or rather, excluded from) the body positive movement . body love has surfaced into mainstream conversation, we've seen a tendency for the message to be delivered by and to straight, white, hourglass-shaped women (take ME, for example). Collectively we seem to cling to this spot and demographic, almost as if we are afraid to try anything more radical for fear the movement might lose its popularity. Which it might. But we should still try. It's a tricky world to navigate, and introducing body positivity into a world immersed in decades of teaching that says otherwise is radical and impressive to be sure. But with this limited representation of bodies within the movement, there are those who are left out, further ostracized, and ignored. My education regarding bodies (other than the one I have lived in) has been gradual . When I started in activism, the first title of my lecture and the tagline for the Body Love Conference was Change Your World.

Consequently, don't rush into buying anything. Instead, ask yourself whether the product is really what you need now and whether buying it is the best current use of your money and time. 4) See if they have a money-back guarantee Look at whether the creator(s) of the product offers a money-back guarantee. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of this feature. I believe investing in a product with the intent of asking for a refund shows a lack of commitment. Having said that, this feature does show that the people who created the product are confident in their offering. Now, let's see how to assess the value of a product so you can make an informed decision before buying it. How to evaluate the value of a course The value offered by a course is quite subjective, but I would like to present a guideline to help you decide whether a course is worth the investment. If I were asked what were the ten most important tasks that need to be accomplished to enable a vibrant, expansive future in space for humanity, I would put lowering the cost of getting to space for all ten, says Clark Lindsey, researcher and managing editor of NewSpace Watch. Since the 1950s government-funded rocketry had focused on performance--getting the most stuff into orbit as possible--with very little effort to reduce cost. The average Space Shuttle mission, for example, cost over $1 billion, all told. Every time. As such, NASA had effectively abandoned the idea of manned flight to Mars, suggesting that maybe in the late 2030s it might--possibly, almost, perhaps, hopefully, our-fingers-are-crossed, but-don't-hold-us-to-it--think about it. SpaceX's goal of getting to Mars would mean necessarily reducing the cost per kilogram of stuff launched into space from thousands of dollars to tens of dollars. Early on SpaceX discovered that most aerospace contractors sold parts at sky-high, gouge-the-government prices. A lot of R&D goes into the development of the various components used in rocket engines, so companies like Lockheed and Boeing charged a premium for them, even though the parts themselves didn't cost much to make--sort of like drugmakers do with medication. Musk figured a first-class noticer could build those components himself--a generic acetaminophen to Boeing's Tylenol--and perhaps even improve upon them. Musk built a factory designed to input aluminum and spit out rocket parts.
