5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day

5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day



The importance of saving money evolves when we start working. For a majority of people the whole point of going to work is to earn money. But reflect on the work related expense. This would add up the coffees, snacks, lunches, transportation and clothes. You would be surprised when you notice that a significant chunk of your earnings is diverted to covering personal work expenses. That means that a portion of your work-day is dedicated to paying for the 'privilege' to work.

It would rather be more befitting if you cut on your daily expenses and save that money and retire early. Look at ways to keep your spending under control.

Cut on Commute
5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day


Save on petrol, parking and car maintenance by using a public transport. It's not only cheap but also better for environment. If you find it difficult to reach office by public transport then opt for car pooling. Find co-workers that you can carpool with. The ability to use the carpool lane (if available) may also save you time. This will cut you fuel expenses drastically.


Pack your Lunch

5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day


Make sure eat breakfast before you leave for work. Packing your lunch is another way of saving money. If you bring lunch instead of going out to eat, they're going to eat healthier. You can opt for sandwiches and wraps that are easy to make and cheap as well. Get from home fruits and juices so that you don't have to buy anything from outside.




Make the most of your tax deductions

5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day


Ensure your employer pays for employment expenses. You can also deduct moving expenses if you have to move over 50 miles away. And some travel expenses related to work and job hunting may also be tax deductible. Make best use of the tax deductions available at your work place.






Stay late and use the Internet

5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day


If you paying a huge amount for high-speed Internet at home, consider disconnecting it. If you have access to the Web on a mobile device, you may be able to check your email, bank account and more quite easily from there. Try utilizing the free Internet available at work. Stay after-hours and do anything that you can't conveniently complete on your phone.






Say no Coffee

5 Tips to Save Money during Work Day


Avoid going for a latte whenever you feel like sipping on hot coffee. Drink the free coffee at work. You can save a lot if you resist little temptations and think economic. Imagine how much you would save on every cup you sacrifice.

Is Technology Necessary For Learning?


Is Technology Necessary For Learning?


It’s hard to find a classroom today without some form of technology. But does investing in technology pay off in terms of test scores? Does outfitting every student with a laptop or iPad necessarily mean they are learning better?
Is Technology Necessary For Learning?The New York Times takes a close look at the the Kyrene School District in Chandler, Arizona. After a ballot initiative was passed in 2005, the Kyrene School District has spent roughly $33 million on technology. Its classrooms are outfitted with laptops, Smart Boards (like that in the photo above) and software to drill students on basic subjects. Teachers are supposed to be guides rather than lecturers to students who work at their own pace by using the resources of the Internet.
For its efforts, the Kyrene School District was pronounced a model of success by the National School Boards Association, which orchestrated a visit of 100 educators from 17 states to see Kyrene’s innovations in 2008.
But since 2005, Kyrene students’ scores in reading and math have “stagnated,” while scores for the rest of the state have risen.
Pretty Weak” Evidence
Tom Vander Ark, the former executive director for education at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, acknowledges that data for the educational value of extensive investments in technology is “pretty weak.” As the New York Times says, there simply isn’t much research showing that technology-centric teaching improves student learning.
Many studies have found that technology has helped individual classrooms, schools or districts. For instance, researchers found that writing scores improved for eighth-graders in Maine after they were all issued laptops in 2002. The same researchers, from the University of Southern Maine, found that math performance picked up among seventh- and eighth-graders after teachers in the state were trained in using the laptops to teach.
Bryan Goodwin, spokesman for Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning, makes the point that “rather than being a cure-all or silver bullet, one-to-one laptop programs may simply amplify what’s already occurring — for better or worse.” Teachers who know what they’re doing will make good use of the technology while teachers who don’t will not.
review by the Education Department in 2009 of research on online courses — which more than one million K-12 students are taking — found that few rigorous studies had been done and that policy makers “lack scientific evidence” of their effectivenessA division of the Education Department that rates classroom curriculums has found that much educational software is not an improvement over textbooks.
Larry Cuban, an education professor emeritus at Stanford University, said the research did not justify big investments by districts.
“There is insufficient evidence to spend that kind of money. Period, period, period,” he said. “There is no body of evidence that shows a trend line.”
Just having a computer in a classroom is no guarantee of successful student learning and can even simply promote student distraction

Can Exercise Treat Depression?


Can Exercise Treat Depression?





Can Exercise Treat Depression?A new study involving 126 participants who still suffered from depression after treatment with antidepressants (SSRIs) has found that exercise — even 30 minutes of regular walking — can help. Dr. Madhukar H. Trivedi, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, decided to study the possibility of prescribing exercise as a treatment for depression after patients reported feeling better after taking a stroll, says the New York Times.
Patients who do not respond to an antidepressant are often prescribed another medication (lithium or an anti-psychotic) but these can be expensive and come with side effects including weight gain. Exercise, as Dr. Trivedi notes, has “nonexistent” side effects and improves cardiovascular health and other benefits — and, especially if you just go out the door for a walk, it’s cheap.
The volunteers were divided into two groups, with one assigned “gentler” exercise (walking at a 3 miles per hour pace for about 10 minutes or the cycling equivalent) or a more intense regimen (walking at a 4 miles per hour pace for about 30 minutes or the cycling equivalent). The latter exercise regime is actually currently recommended by theAmerican College of Sports Medicine.
29.5 percent of participants who stuck to the 30-minute exercise regimen for four months (while still taking an antidepressant) achieved remission; that’s almost a third of the participants. Dr. Trivedi has published his results in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
There are some caveats:
One is practical. More patients improved in the group that completed the longer, brisker workouts than in the group assigned the easier exercise, but more of them also dropped out of the study. “We need to find ways to support people’s efforts to exercise,” Dr. Trivedi said. “It’s not going to be enough to casually say, ‘Go for a walk.’” Exercise, if it’s to be medicinal in depression treatments, will have to be monitored, he said, so it can’t be shrugged off.
Even then, many people will not respond. Almost 70 percent of the volunteers in this study did not achieve full remission. Failure rates were particularly high for women with a family history of depression, perhaps as a result of some as yet unknown genetic quirk. And women in that group who did recover were more likely to succeed using the lighter exercise program than the more strenuous routine.
But exercise as a treatment seems a potential win-win option. I’ve had some mild depression and just getting up and doing something helps. Others near and dear to me who’ve coped with unyielding depression have found that there’s nothing like a good long bike ride or run to get your mind away (albeit temporarily) from its woes. Plus, after that ride or run, you feel at least a bit of a “boost” from having accomplished something. Certainly the price of this treatment is right — and it’s heartening to know that there can be ways to treat depression that don’t call for taking little blue pills

വള്ളത്തോള്‍ നാരായണമേനോന്‍


µÕßÄÏßW æµÞ{áJßÏ µ{ßÕß{Aí --
വള്ളത്തോള്‍ നാരായണ മേനോന്‍  



ദേശീയ കവി, കേരള വാല്മീകി എന്നൊക്കെ വിശേഷണങ്ങളുണ്ട് മഹാകവി വള്ളത്തോള്‍ നാരായണ മേനോന്. ആധുനിക കവിത്രയത്തില്‍പ്പെട്ട വള്ളത്തോള്‍, കവിതയ്ക്കൊപ്പം കഥകളിക്കും വലിയ സംഭാവന നല്‍കി. വള്ളത്തോള്‍ കവിതയിലൂടെ ഒരു യാത്ര.


മഹാത്മാഗാന്ധിയെപ്പറ്റി നമുക്കു പെട്ടെന്ന് ഒാര്‍മ വരുന്ന ഒരു കവിതയുണ്ട്.



''ലോകമേ തറവാട് തനിയ്ക്കീച്ചെടികളും
പുല്‍കളും പുഴുക്കളും കൂടിത്തന്‍ കുടുംബക്കാര്‍.
ത്യാഗമെന്നതേ നേട്ടം, താഴ്മതാനഭ്യുന്നതി,
യോഗവിത്തേവം ജയിക്കുന്നിതെന്‍ ഗുരുനാഥന്‍"".




ഗാന്ധിജിയുടെ സര്‍വഗുണങ്ങളും ഒരു ചിത്രത്തിലെന്നപോലെ വരച്ചിടുന്ന ''എന്റെ ഗുരുനാഥന്‍'' എന്ന ഇൌ കവിത രചിച്ചത് വള്ളത്തോള്‍ നാരായണമേനോനാണ്. ദേശീയ കവി, കേരള വാല്മീകി... ഇങ്ങനെ വിശേഷണങ്ങള്‍ പലതുണ്ട് അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്. 




1878 ഒക്ടോബര്‍ 16ന് വള്ളത്തോള്‍ ജനിച്ചു. പഴയ മലബാര്‍ ജില്ലയില്‍ പൊന്നാനി താലൂക്കില്‍ വെട്ടത്തുനാടാണ് ജന്മസ്ഥലം. 'കുട്ടന്‍' എന്നായിരുന്നു ഒാമനപ്പേര്. അമ്മ കൊണ്ടയൂര്‍ കുട്ടിപ്പാറുവമ്മ. അച്ഛന്‍ കടുങ്ങോട്ടു മല്ലിശേരി ദാമോദരന്‍ ഇളയത്.




പതിനാറു വയസ്സുള്ളപ്പോള്‍ കോഴിക്കോട്ട് 'ഭാഷാപോഷിണി സഭ'നടത്തിയ കവിതാമത്സരത്തില്‍ വള്ളത്തോള്‍ ഒന്നാം സ്ഥാനം നേടി. ഇതു പ്രശസ്ത സാഹിത്യകാരന്‍ന്മാരുമായുള്ള ബന്ധത്തിനു കളമൊരുക്കി. മനോരമയിലും ഭാഷാപോഷിണിയിലും അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ ധാരാളം രചനകള്‍ പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിച്ചു.




വള്ളത്തോള്‍ ഇന്ത്യന്‍ ദേശീയ പ്രസ്ഥാനവുമായി നേരിട്ടു ബന്ധപ്പെട്ടു. കോണ്‍ഗ്രസ് അംഗമായി. ഗാന്ധിജിയുടെ അനുയായിയായി. 1928ല്‍ കൊല്‍ക്കത്തയിലെ കോണ്‍ഗ്രസ് സമ്മേളനത്തില്‍ പ്രതിനിധിയായി അദ്ദേഹം പങ്കെടുത്തു. കേരളീയ കലകളോടും സംസ്കാരത്തോടും വിശേഷിച്ചു കഥകളിയോടുമുള്ള ആഭിമുഖ്യമാണു കേരളകലാമണ്ഡലത്തിന്റെ സ്ഥാപനത്തിലേക്ക് അദ്ദേഹത്തെ നയിച്ചത്.



ശബ്ദമില്ലാത്തതായി ലോകം
1909ല്‍ അപ്രതീക്ഷിതമായി ബാധിച്ച ബധിരത വള്ളത്തോളിന്റെ ജീവിതത്തില്‍ പുതിയ കാഴ്ചപ്പാടുകള്‍ക്കു കാരണമായി. ബാധിര്യത്തെ ആധാരമാക്കി 'ബാധിര്യശാന്തിസ്തവം' തുടങ്ങിയ ശ്ളോകങ്ങള്‍ അദ്ദേഹം രചിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്. ബാധിര്യത്തെക്കുറിച്ചുള്ള അസ്വസ്ഥത അദ്ദേഹത്തെ അലട്ടിക്കൊണ്ടിരുന്നു. ചികില്‍സ ഫലിക്കാതെ വന്നപ്പോള്‍ പ്രാര്‍ഥനയിലും നാരായണീയ പാരായണത്തിലും സമയം ചെലവഴിച്ചു. ഇൌ പ്രാര്‍ഥനകള്‍ക്കിടയിലാണ് 'ബധിരവിലാപം' എന്ന കാവ്യം രചിച്ചത്. ആത്മനിഷ്ഠമായ ബധിരവിലാപത്തിലെ അവസാന ശ്ളോകങ്ങള്‍ ഭക്തിനിര്‍ഭരമാണ്.




''നിരവധി മദമല്‍സരാദിയാദോ

Interview Preparation Wins Candidate Competitions


Interview Preparation Wins Candidate Competitions




When it's time to interview, you'll need more than attitude; do your homework to put yourself ahead of the pack.


The "will to win" is overrated. If you think about it, who doesn't have the will to win? What makes people successful — whether in sports competitions or job interviews — is what basketball Coach Bob Knight called "the will to prepare to win."
"That's what sets people apart," said Lisa Panarello, founder and CEO of Careers Advance, a professional training and coaching agency in New York.
She said applicants should put in at least 15 minutes of research just to compose an effective cover letter.
"That basic homework, it makes you look interested and really engaged in the process, but it also makes you more confident in the interview," said Kay Piatt, employment manager of The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa in Houston. "It's good for both parties."
Piatt has conducted many interviews as the head of employment and recruiting for the luxury hotel, and she knows when a candidate is prepared and when they're not.
But just doing the obvious research isn't enough at the $100K-plus level.
Piatt said job seekers should be well versed in how a company is structured, industry trends that are relevant to the position they're seeking and any current events involving the company. You might even want to study up on the person who will be interviewing you, she added.
According to Piatt, a lot of the basic information you'll need for preparation can be found online or — better yet — from someone you know who may work there.
Mark Grimm, a public speaking trainer and author of "Everyone Can Be a Dynamic Speaker," stresses offering your interviewer value — and that entails doing the homework necessary to know what it is she's looking for.
"Go to their Web site," Grimm said. "There's no excuse for not doing research now."
He suggested calling the office, chatting up the secretary and fishing out as much information as you can.
"What do you have to lose?" he said. "Find out as much as you can about what they really want."
When it comes to online research, sometimes cyberspace can become overwhelming: There's just too much information to process.
Not a problem, Panarello said: "Narrow it down to what is most relevant for the position at hand and the growth of the company. Peg it to the future."
Be methodical and efficient, she said. "Google one or two key people from the company, and print out the articles," she said. "Read an article. Try to come up with three questions. Then try to answer it."
This strategy, she said, will help focus you for the interview. And once you've done the research, bring physical evidence of your work to the interview.
"Treat an interview as if it's a business meeting. Bring the printouts in a folder," Panarello advised. "Pull out the article and reference it. They're going to think, 'This person is going to come to a meeting like this.' "
Next, take your homework to the next level, Panarello said, and do the same research about the company's competitors.
"When somebody is sitting across my desk, it is really interesting to talk about (competitors) rather than my list of 10 questions," Piatt said.
When a candidate can demonstrate a full understanding of the company's competitive needs, Grimm said, that person is in the best position to make a convincing case.
"The more you talk about how you help [the company] — rather than help yourself — the better their hearing gets," Grimm said.

10 Good Ways to 'Tell Me About Yourself'


10 Good Ways to 'Tell Me About Yourself'




'If Hollywood made a movie about my life, it would be called...' and nine more memorable answers to this dreaded job interview question.



You know it’s coming.
It’s the most feared question during any job interview: Do you think I would look good in a 
Interviewingcowboy hat?
Just kidding. The real question is: Can youtell me about yourself?
Blecch. What a boring, vague, open-ended question. Who likes answering that?
I know. I’m with you. But unfortunately, hiring managers and executive recruiters ask the question. Even if you’re not interviewing and you’re out networking in the community — you need to be ready to hear it and answer it. At all times.
Now, before I share a list of 10 memorable answers, consider the two essential elements behind the answers:
The medium is the message. The interviewer cares less about your answer to this question and more about the confidence, enthusiasm and passion with which you answer it.
The speed of the response is the response. The biggest mistake you could make is pausing, stalling or fumbling at the onset of your answer, thus demonstrating a lack of self-awareness and self-esteem.
Next time you’re faced with the dreaded, “Tell me about yourself…” question, try these:
  1. “I can summarize who I am in three words.” Grabs their attention immediately. Demonstrates your ability to be concise, creative and compelling.
  2. “The quotation I live my life by is…” Proves that personal development is an essential part of your growth plan. Also shows your ability to motivate yourself.
  3. “My personal philosophy is…” Companies hire athletes – not shortstops. This line indicates your position as a thinker, not just an employee.
  4. “People who know me best say that I’m…” This response offers insight into your own level of self-awareness.
  5. “Well, I googled myself this morning, and here’s what I found…”Tech-savvy, fun, cool people would say this. Unexpected and memorable.
  6. “My passion is…” People don’t care what you do – people care who you are. And what you’re passionate about is who you are. Plus, passion unearths enthusiasm.
  7. “When I was seven years old, I always wanted to be…” An answer like this shows that you’ve been preparing for this job your whole life, not just the night before.
  8. “If Hollywood made a move about my life, it would be called…”Engaging, interesting and entertaining.
  9. “Can I show you, instead of tell you?” Then, pull something out of your pocket that represents who you are. Who could resist this answer? Who could forget this answer?
  10. “The compliment people give me most frequently is…” Almost like a testimonial, this response also indicates self-awareness and openness to feedback.
Keep in mind that these examples are just the opener. The secret is thinking how you will follow up each answer with relevant, interesting and concise explanations that make the already bored interviewer look up from his stale coffee and think, “Wow! That’s the best answer I’ve heard all day!”
Ultimately it’s about answering quickly, it’s about speaking creatively and it’s about breaking people’s patterns.
I understand your fear with such answers. Responses like these are risky, unexpected and unorthodox. And that’s exactly why they work.
Otherwise you become (yet another) non-entity in the gray mass of blah, blah, blah.
You’re hireable because of your answers. When people ask you to tell them about yourself, make them glad they asked.
Let me ask you this: How much time did you dedicate this week to becoming more interesting? Let me suggest this: For the list called, “61 Stupid Things to Stop Doing Before It’s Too Late,” send an e-mail to me, and you win it for free!
