Write them below or join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #askHHG TRANSCRIPT: Cath Anne: [00:00:05] This week, because things are starting to ramp up, with classes I wanted to give you some tips about how you can effectively incorporate different kinds of studying mechanisms into your study routine. Cath Anne: [00:00:25] One that I wanted to discuss is flashcards as they can be a really great tool for studying. Ill also talk briefly about an application that you can use thats like an online app as opposed to physical flashcards. I was hoping to be able to show my screen, so that we could kind of go through that process of creating online flashcards together. Cath Anne: [00:00:55] Unfortunately, I havent been able to figure that out. Also, it wouldnt work for the Instagram viewers either, so I thought it would be better if we stuck to the hard copies of flash cards. At the same time, the same kind of tenets will apply to both types of flashcards. Cath Anne: [00:01:17] I thought that it would be great to discuss how to kind of incorporate flashcards into your study routine. I think well jump into the content, there maybe some other folks joining us later. I cant believe it is Episode 16 of The Homework Help Show, it is so hard to believe. Way back in episode 8 we talked about some techniques about how you can study effectively and retain the information you studied. Cath Anne: [00:01:57] Im sure that things are starting to heat up with classes and tests and exams. Probably midterms at this point. Youre probably looking for some techniques to be able to incorporate into your study routines. Cath Anne: [00:02:13] You might remember, back in Episode 8. If youre an avid viewer, I discussed an application called Anki, which can be used to design and implement your own digital flashcards. Thats really great website to visit if youre interested in going that route with designing your flashcards. Im going to as I mentioned discuss how to make your own flashcards using physical pieces of paper or flash cards that you can get at the dollar store or something like that. Flash cards are a study mechanism that has been tried and true, but of course there are other ways to study. Flashcards are only one tool. Cath Anne: [00:03:17] (To Instagram Viewer): Hi Justine. Were just going to were talking about how to use flash cards in your study routines if youre interested in them. Are you a student? Cath Anne: [00:03:42] Flashcards are really great tool to have in your toolbox. And of course you can use it alongside of other study mechanisms as well. I wanted to go over the how to create great flashcards and the things to avoid when you are making flashcards. Basically the reason flashcards work is that they promote something called active re-call. This means that it helps you to exercise the muscle which allows you to actively retrieve information from the brain which is one of the most effective ways of studying. Its helping you to exercise that muscle of retrieving information. Cath Anne: [00:04:30] When you do that over and over and over again it actually strengthens that muscle. Thats why Flashcards are a great tool to implement into your study routines. They do take a little bit of time to create. I would highly recommend implementing them because theres a whole process to it and it can really enhance your studying. As I often do, Im going to draw some content that was produced by Thomas Frank who has an awesome YouTube. Ive referenced him before. He creates content. I would recommend to anyone who is a student or who is interested in overall productivity to check his channel out because it is really great. Hes got a lot of really great content there. Cath Anne: [00:05:22] Ive actually gone ahead and made my own flashcards for the purposes of this episode. Cath Anne: [00:05:32] (To Instagram Viewer): Oh, hi the Neighbourly Consultant. Nice to see you. You missed the showing of my cats earlier to Coach Kaur. Cath Anne: [00:05:49] This week were talking about flashcards and how to implement them into your study routine. This can be for anyone, it does not just have to be for students. Im not a student right now, but Ill talk to you about what I want to do with my flashcards. Were always were always learning things and you know trying to improve ourselves. So, using flashcards can be used even if youre not a university or college student. Cath Anne: [00:06:43] As I was saying I have actually gone ahead and created some of my own flash cards, so that I can show you how to make good flash cards and not so great flash cards cash. Cath Anne: [00:07:04] You dont necessarily have to be a student to use flash cards. For example, I hope to someday become a yoga teacher. For the purposes of this and because I want to start studying yoga Ive created a few flashcards to get myself started and to give you guys an example. You can use it for anything youre studying if you want to learn a new language. Thomas Frank, when I looked at his YouTube, he was looking at studying the periodic table because that was something that he had never studied before, so he wanted to learn that. Cath Anne: [00:07:54] (To Instagram Viewer): Oh, thank you Coach Kaur. Thats so nice of you to say. I think I have a lot to learn before I get there. I have to definitely start cultivating more of a daily yoga practice. Im getting there. Im working on mindfulness as well. So, I think they all kind of go hand in hand. Hopefully Ill start studying and see where it goes. Thats really kind of you to say though. Cath Anne: [00:08:41] So, lets jump in to the content. The first tip that I wanted to give you when youre thinking about using flashcards is make your own cards. It might be tempting to use someone elses cards, because as I said they can be a little bit time consuming to make. If youre super busy and youre a student, you might not want to take that extra chunk of time that it takes to create your own flashcards. However, it is really important for you to make your own flashcards because you are going to retain more information if you make them. One of the most important tenets of intaking information is actually learning the information and working with it in your brain. That helps you to retain the information. Even though you might save some time using someone elses flashcards they wont be as effective for you if you do because you wont be as familiar with the content that youre studying. Its of more benefit to you, if you are going to implement flashcards into your routine, for yo u to take the time to create flashcards and it will also help create new neural pathways in your brain which will be different from someone elses neural pathways. Cath Anne: [00:10:11] When you are intaking and learning the information, the pathways that you form in your brain related to a certain topic are going to be different from another person because all of our brains are different. Its really important to set aside some time if this is something youre going to implement into your study routine for you to create your own flashcards. It doesnt have to take that long, but it would take a little bit of time depending on what subject youre studying. Cath Anne: [00:10:44] The second step in creating your own cards is to add pictures with them and mix them up with words. This is actually based on science that people tend to remember images and pictures more than they remember words because we are visual people. Images make more sense to us than words because words are really just a string of symbols set up to represent something, whereas images actually mean something to us. Cath Anne: [00:11:19] Two ideas of what you could do with your flashcards are: you can either print up pictures from the Internet, which is a really great idea or you can draw, if you have confidence in your drawing skills As you will see with my flashcards, you can still draw because they will make sense to you and you will know what the pictures are unless you are really bad at drawing which it could be argued that I am. Judging from these flashcards, but maybe when I make them for real for studying for yoga then I will try to do a bit better drawing, but just in terms of your own use, dont worry about your drawing skills as long as they mean something to you that this is not a big deal. Cath Anne: [00:12:18] The best way to do this is to incorporate pictures with words. Instagram Viewer: [00:12:32] Should they be in point form? Cath Anne: [00:12:35] How he would answer that is, whatever works for you if you want them to be in point form thats fine. But I will discuss, when youre creating a flashcard, youre only going to want one piece of information to be on the flashcard so you dont necessarily have to do them in point form because its only going to be one piece of information. Cath Anne: [00:12:57] And the best way to do it is actually to incorporate images as well as words and I will definitely talk about that just a little bit more as we go on here. If point form works for you then go for it. But, whereas youre only including one in one piece of information you dont need point form. Cath Anne: [00:13:26] Another tip is that in addition to the words and the pictures you can add a descriptive phrase or sentence beside it and that will also help you with re-call. Cath Anne: [00:13:39] The third tip is to use mnemonic devices on your cards. Mnemonic devices are ways that you can remember information, so you can re-call it, it implants in your brain more readily when you use mnemonic devices. Basically, they are a way for your brain to remember very specific information. Cath Anne: [00:14:02] So, for example, I remember when I was in biology class my biology professor was really interested in the brain. He had us use a series of mnemonic devices to remember all of the Prime Ministers of Canada. We went from the very first Prime Minister all the way up until Harper and he had us memorize each one in relation to a mnemonic device and it was actually really effective. I can still recall some of those Prime Ministers to this day. John A. McDonald is of course the first. Now Im putting myself on the spot. The second King, I believe. Anyway, so I can remember them on the spot but, we had to associate certain words with the names of the Prime Ministers. I can also show you on my cards Ive incorporated that as well because it gives you a picture between the image and the information that youre trying to recall. Cath Anne: [00:15:17] Instead of just trying to recall specific information you have a silly little thing to remember it with. Another example of this is the ROYGBIV acronym to remember the colors in the rainbow is really common mnemonic device. Cath Anne: [00:15:39] The weirder you make your mnemonic devices the more apt you are to remember the information. Cath Anne: [00:15:54] (To Instagram Viewer): Now just pause there for a minute. Hi. Allie. Thank you for joining us. Were just talking about how you use flash cards in your studying. Yeah, it did freezes back on now said poor connectivity for some reason Im not sure. Cath Anne: [00:16:33] Im going to show you my cards and Im going to show you an example of a not so good flashcard and see if you can figure out why it is not so great. So, I will first show the screen here my other camera. Cath Anne: [00:19:32] It says: How much does an elephant weigh? Cath Anne: [00:19:34] Then on the back, we have: African bush elephant weighs six thousand kilograms. Whoops, I forget zero. That might be one reason, its not a good flash. 6000 kilograms. Then we have Asian elephant: 5400 kilograms. So, that would be the front question and that would be the back. Cath Anne: [00:20:11] We have two pieces of information on the back: African bush elephant weighing 6000 kilograms and as Asian elephant weighing 5400 kilograms. Cath Anne: [00:20:21] Im wondering if anyone can tell why maybe that isnt the best way to frame a flashcard. Cath Anne: [00:20:42] The reason thats not a great way is because youre asking one question and you only want to have one piece of information on each flashcard. So, even if you are going to be answering the same question you will want to only have one piece of information on the back. The way you would want to phrase this is: How much does an African bush elephant weigh? and that on the back put 6000 kilograms. Then you would want to say: How much does an Asian elephant weigh? Then put 5400 kilograms. This is because your brain will be tricked because you will only be able to recall a certain amount of information and youll be confused in terms of which elephant youre talking about. Cath Anne: [00:21:48] Youre more likely to make a mistake if you include more than one piece of information on the flashcard at a time. So, Im just going to go back to my notes here. Im going to go back to the pneumonic device issue in terms of making your flashcards appropriate. Youre going to, Ill use my cards as an example. Youre going to want to include both pictures as well as words. So, Im studying to be a yoga teacher, so I have downward dog on one of my flashcards. As you can see, my pictures are not very good, but they get the point across and Im going to know what that means. So, then on the back I wanted to know the Sanskrit name for downward dog. Cath Anne: [00:22:50] As you can see its definitely not in point form but it is in. I have the word written there. Adho mukha svanasana. Then, I have some funny pictures drawn beside it. I have 2 + 2 which is add in English and Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho for Santa. Then I have mukha and svanasana. These are all pictures that will help me to recall that Sanskrit word. Then I also have a second one for downward dog because this is a separate piece of information that I want to recall about downward dog and what Ive put on the back is that downward dog lengthens the spine. So, Ive drawn a little picture of a person with a spine and some arrows going downward. So, to me that will imply that downward dog lengthens the spine. Cath Anne: [00:23:53] I have that both in Sanskrit meaning or the Sanskrit pronunciation and word for downward dog as well as one of the benefits of the downward dog posture. Cath Anne: [00:24:05] Then a second example is child pose is another posture in yoga that I want to remember. The Sanskrit name for this is Balasana. So, I want to remember Balasana, so I put a picture of a ball Ive put a picture of a little girl and Ive named her Ana and hopefully that will help me, actually I think thats already helped me remember that word because that was one that I was not familiar with. So, I have child pose now as Balasana and that is something that I will be able to recall in my mind because Ive drawn these funny pictures and Ive coloured them very brightly and that will help me with my recall when Im trying to remember these names. Cath Anne: [00:25:08] Then I have another example of a flashcard with child pose. So, I wanted to do the same thing as I did with downward dog. I wanted to know what it is used for. So, I wrote here that child post is a resting pose picture of a guy with zzzs, as if hes sleeping and hes yawning. As you can see my drawing skills are not immaculate, but they do the trick because I will remember, well I already knew this so thats kind of cheating, but that would help me to remember what child pose is Cath Anne: [00:25:55] So, thats an example of my flashcards that Ive made for my yoga study. Cath Anne: [00:26:01] As you can see Ive only put one piece of information on each flashcard as I do not want to be confused when I am attempting to recall. Cath Anne: [00:26:10] So, that is a really important tip to bear in mind when you are creating your own flashcards and also make sure that youre using funny pictures. I constructed a few different images there and that will help me to remember those words because theyre not too familiar to me, so it will help for me to recall them because theyre not in my primary language. Cath Anne: [00:26:44] By making individual cards for each piece of information youre going to guarantee that you have the correct information when you are attempting to recall. Thats really important. Cath Anne: [00:26:57] When you have complex steps, and this is a very basic example, but if you have a complex formula, or complex question, or complex steps youre going to want to make sure you break it down into simpler questions and that is also going to help you with recall. Cath Anne: [00:27:14] You dont want to be overwhelming yourself with really complex information on top of your studying. So, you want to make sure that your flashcards are really easy to use and really accessible. Make sure that youre breaking things down into a variety of different steps similar to what Ive done with my flashcards. For example, with downward dog I will also want to go into the various other benefits that downward dog has because it has more than just lengthening the spine so its really important that I remember those as well. So, I will make a flashcard for each of those concepts as well. Cath Anne: [00:27:56] Then I might even make some flashcards around how to maintain the posture properly and what it should look like, so Ill make sure to break that down appropriately so that I will be able to bring it back when Im when Im hopefully teaching someday. Cath Anne: [00:28:16] I wanted to just end on a note of giving you a couple of tips for the best ways to use your flashcards. Once you have your flashcards all made, its really important to know how to use them properly. One of the tips that you can use is to say your answers out loud when youre studying because not only are you getting the visual impression youre also hearing it. Thats a really important aspect of studying is to say things out loud because when we say things out loud were more apt to recall it because were getting two inputs of information visually and audibly. Cath Anne: [00:28:54] A second tip is to make sure you are studying both sides of the card. Make sure that youre looking at one side of your card and then the other side of the card so that you really have a grasp of both sides of the information. As I mentioned before, Flashcards are not the only way to study. Cath Anne: [00:29:15] Theyre just one method of study which can be combined with lots of other ways. So, think of them as a tool in your toolbox. Theyre a great tool, but theyre not the be all in the end all. There are a lot of other ways to study as well, so make sure that youre researching and incorporating some other ways of studying as well. Cath Anne: [00:29:36] One of the key components to flashcards is to learn the information first. For me when I am going to be studying about yoga Im going to be looking at some books that I can read around yoga practice. Im going to be doing yoga practice on a regular basis, so I become familiar with the terms and the poses. Im already familiar with the information prior to doing my studying. The flashcards are just a way to reinforce the information in your brain and help with recall and strengthening that recall muscle in the brain. Cath Anne: [00:30:11] I hope that was helpful. I know weve been having some connectivity issues with Instagram and Im so sorry that that we were on I dont know. That is all the content I have for now. Definitely encourage you to check out Anki If youre someone who is more digitally oriented. Cath Anne: [00:30:49] If youre someone who likes to have hard content to work with definitely try to make your own flashcards. You can buy a deck of flashcards just at the Dollar Store or anywhere like Staples or an office supply store, as well. Flash cards are your friend. They are a great way to study and retain information. Cath Anne: [00:31:14] So, thats all the information I have for this week. I really hope that was helpful. I look forward to incorporating flashcards into my life and into my study. Its not something that I used to use when I was in my undergrad, but I wish I had. So, Im really excited to be able to incorporate that into my life and I hope you are too. So, thats it for this week.

Cath Anne: [00:12:18] The best way to do this is to incorporate pictures with words. Instagram Viewer: [00:12:32] Should they be in point form? Cath Anne: [00:12:35] How he would answer that is, whatever works for you if you want them to be in point form thats fine. But I will discuss, when youre creating a flashcard, youre only going to want one piece of information to be on the flashcard so you dont necessarily have to do them in point form because its only going to be one piece of information. Cath Anne: [00:12:57] And the best way to do it is actually to incorporate images as well as words and I will definitely talk about that just a little bit more as we go on here. If point form works for you then go for it. But, whereas youre only including one in one piece of information you dont need point form. Cath Anne: [00:13:26] Another tip is that in addition to the words and the pictures you can add a descriptive phrase or sentence beside it and that will also help you with re-call. Cath Anne: [00:13:39] The third tip is to use mnemonic devices on your cards. Mnemonic devices are ways that you can remember information, so you can re-call it, it implants in your brain more readily when you use mnemonic devices. Basically, they are a way for your brain to remember very specific information. Cath Anne: [00:14:02] So, for example, I remember when I was in biology class my biology professor was really interested in the brain. He had us use a series of mnemonic devices to remember all of the Prime Ministers of Canada. We went from the very first Prime Minister all the way up until Harper and he had us memorize each one in relation to a mnemonic device and it was actually really effective. I can still recall some of those Prime Ministers to this day. John A. McDonald is of course the first. Now Im putting myself on the spot. The second King, I believe. Anyway, so I can remember them on the spot but, we had to associate certain words with the names of the Prime Ministers. I can also show you on my cards Ive incorporated that as well because it gives you a picture between the image and the information that youre trying to recall. Cath Anne: [00:15:17] Instead of just trying to recall specific information you have a silly little thing to remember it with. Another example of this is the ROYGBIV acronym to remember the colors in the rainbow is really common mnemonic device. Cath Anne: [00:15:39] The weirder you make your mnemonic devices the more apt you are to remember the information. Cath Anne: [00:15:54] (To Instagram Viewer): Now just pause there for a minute. Hi. Allie. Thank you for joining us. Were just talking about how you use flash cards in your studying. Yeah, it did freezes back on now said poor connectivity for some reason Im not sure. Cath Anne: [00:16:33] Im going to show you my cards and Im going to show you an example of a not so good flashcard and see if you can figure out why it is not so great. So, I will first show the screen here my other camera. Cath Anne: [00:19:32] It says: How much does an elephant weigh? Cath Anne: [00:19:34] Then on the back, we have: African bush elephant weighs six thousand kilograms. Whoops, I forget zero. That might be one reason, its not a good flash. 6000 kilograms. Then we have Asian elephant: 5400 kilograms. So, that would be the front question and that would be the back. Cath Anne: [00:20:11] We have two pieces of information on the back: African bush elephant weighing 6000 kilograms and as Asian elephant weighing 5400 kilograms. Cath Anne: [00:20:21] Im wondering if anyone can tell why maybe that isnt the best way to frame a flashcard. Cath Anne: [00:20:42] The reason thats not a great way is because youre asking one question and you only want to have one piece of information on each flashcard. So, even if you are going to be answering the same question you will want to only have one piece of information on the back. The way you would want to phrase this is: How much does an African bush elephant weigh? and that on the back put 6000 kilograms. Then you would want to say: How much does an Asian elephant weigh? Then put 5400 kilograms. This is because your brain will be tricked because you will only be able to recall a certain amount of information and youll be confused in terms of which elephant youre talking about. Cath Anne: [00:21:48] Youre more likely to make a mistake if you include more than one piece of information on the flashcard at a time. So, Im just going to go back to my notes here. Im going to go back to the pneumonic device issue in terms of making your flashcards appropriate. Youre going to, Ill use my cards as an example. Youre going to want to include both pictures as well as words. So, Im studying to be a yoga teacher, so I have downward dog on one of my flashcards. As you can see, my pictures are not very good, but they get the point across and Im going to know what that means. So, then on the back I wanted to know the Sanskrit name for downward dog. Cath Anne: [00:22:50] As you can see its definitely not in point form but it is in. I have the word written there. Adho mukha svanasana. Then, I have some funny pictures drawn beside it. I have 2 + 2 which is add in English and Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho for Santa. Then I have mukha and svanasana. These are all pictures that will help me to recall that Sanskrit word. Then I also have a second one for downward dog because this is a separate piece of information that I want to recall about downward dog and what Ive put on the back is that downward dog lengthens the spine. So, Ive drawn a little picture of a person with a spine and some arrows going downward. So, to me that will imply that downward dog lengthens the spine. Cath Anne: [00:23:53] I have that both in Sanskrit meaning or the Sanskrit pronunciation and word for downward dog as well as one of the benefits of the downward dog posture. Cath Anne: [00:24:05] Then a second example is child pose is another posture in yoga that I want to remember. The Sanskrit name for this is Balasana. So, I want to remember Balasana, so I put a picture of a ball Ive put a picture of a little girl and Ive named her Ana and hopefully that will help me, actually I think thats already helped me remember that word because that was one that I was not familiar with. So, I have child pose now as Balasana and that is something that I will be able to recall in my mind because Ive drawn these funny pictures and Ive coloured them very brightly and that will help me with my recall when Im trying to remember these names. Cath Anne: [00:25:08] Then I have another example of a flashcard with child pose. So, I wanted to do the same thing as I did with downward dog. I wanted to know what it is used for. So, I wrote here that child post is a resting pose picture of a guy with zzzs, as if hes sleeping and hes yawning. As you can see my drawing skills are not immaculate, but they do the trick because I will remember, well I already knew this so thats kind of cheating, but that would help me to remember what child pose is Cath Anne: [00:25:55] So, thats an example of my flashcards that Ive made for my yoga study. Cath Anne: [00:26:01] As you can see Ive only put one piece of information on each flashcard as I do not want to be confused when I am attempting to recall. Cath Anne: [00:26:10] So, that is a really important tip to bear in mind when you are creating your own flashcards and also make sure that youre using funny pictures. I constructed a few different images there and that will help me to remember those words because theyre not too familiar to me, so it will help for me to recall them because theyre not in my primary language. Cath Anne: [00:26:44] By making individual cards for each piece of information youre going to guarantee that you have the correct information when you are attempting to recall. Thats really important. Cath Anne: [00:26:57] When you have complex steps, and this is a very basic example, but if you have a complex formula, or complex question, or complex steps youre going to want to make sure you break it down into simpler questions and that is also going to help you with recall. Cath Anne: [00:27:14] You dont want to be overwhelming yourself with really complex information on top of your studying. So, you want to make sure that your flashcards are really easy to use and really accessible. Make sure that youre breaking things down into a variety of different steps similar to what Ive done with my flashcards. For example, with downward dog I will also want to go into the various other benefits that downward dog has because it has more than just lengthening the spine so its really important that I remember those as well. So, I will make a flashcard for each of those concepts as well. Cath Anne: [00:27:56] Then I might even make some flashcards around how to maintain the posture properly and what it should look like, so Ill make sure to break that down appropriately so that I will be able to bring it back when Im when Im hopefully teaching someday. Cath Anne: [00:28:16] I wanted to just end on a note of giving you a couple of tips for the best ways to use your flashcards. Once you have your flashcards all made, its really important to know how to use them properly. One of the tips that you can use is to say your answers out loud when youre studying because not only are you getting the visual impression youre also hearing it. Thats a really important aspect of studying is to say things out loud because when we say things out loud were more apt to recall it because were getting two inputs of information visually and audibly. Cath Anne: [00:28:54] A second tip is to make sure you are studying both sides of the card. Make sure that youre looking at one side of your card and then the other side of the card so that you really have a grasp of both sides of the information. As I mentioned before, Flashcards are not the only way to study. Cath Anne: [00:29:15] Theyre just one method of study which can be combined with lots of other ways. So, think of them as a tool in your toolbox. Theyre a great tool, but theyre not the be all in the end all. There are a lot of other ways to study as well, so make sure that youre researching and incorporating some other ways of studying as well. Cath Anne: [00:29:36] One of the key components to flashcards is to learn the information first. For me when I am going to be studying about yoga Im going to be looking at some books that I can read around yoga practice. Im going to be doing yoga practice on a regular basis, so I become familiar with the terms and the poses. Im already familiar with the information prior to doing my studying. The flashcards are just a way to reinforce the information in your brain and help with recall and strengthening that recall muscle in the brain. Cath Anne: [00:30:11] I hope that was helpful. I know weve been having some connectivity issues with Instagram and Im so sorry that that we were on I dont know. That is all the content I have for now. Definitely encourage you to check out Anki If youre someone who is more digitally oriented. Cath Anne: [00:30:49] If youre someone who likes to have hard content to work with definitely try to make your own flashcards. You can buy a deck of flashcards just at the Dollar Store or anywhere like Staples or an office supply store, as well. Flash cards are your friend. They are a great way to study and retain information. Cath Anne: [00:31:14] So, thats all the information I have for this week. I really hope that was helpful. I look forward to incorporating flashcards into my life and into my study. Its not something that I used to use when I was in my undergrad, but I wish I had. So, Im really excited to be able to incorporate that into my life and I hope you are too. So, thats it for this week.

“The Iron Lady” - Free Essay Example

Sample details Pages: 5 Words: 1467 Downloads: 3 Date added: 2017/09/16 Category Literature Essay Type Argumentative essay Did you like this example? â€Å"The Iron Lady† If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you have to have a touch of iron about you. Margaret Thatcher, the first woman to lead a major Western democracy, spoke these words. She served as Great Britain’s Prime Minister for more than eleven years (1979-1990), and led with an iron fist bringing down inflation in England, reviving the British economy, reclaiming the Falkland Islands, and never wavering against the Soviets in the Cold War. Born as Margaret Hilda Roberts on October 13, 1925, in Grantham, Lincolnshire, England, she was the youngest daughter of Alfred and Beatrice Roberts. Her father was a local businessman who operated a grocery store where the Robert’s family lived in an apartment above. Thatcher was introduced to politics by her father. He was active in the town council and later became mayor . She was accepted at Oxford University where she studied chemistry, although it took second place to her love of politics. Thus, she became politically active on campus. She was elected president of the student Conservative Association at Oxford which gave way to many political connections for her future. She ran as the Conservative candidate for the Labour seat of Dartford at the General Elections of 1950 and 1951. Although she lost both times, she did win fame for being the youngest woman candidate in the country, since during the elections; she was only in her mid-twenties. Losing never deterred Thatcher. She continued her involvement with the Conservative Party in Kent where she met her future husband, Denis Thatcher. They were married in 1951. He, being a wealthy businessman, funded her studies for the bar, and she became a barrister in 1953. It was that same year she and her husband excitedly welcomed their twins, Mark and Carol into their family. Even though a new moth er, Margaret Thatcher did not slow down her political rampage. She kept focus and finally in 1959 she smoothly took the election and claimed her seat in the House of Commons. She was everything from Secretary at the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance to Secretary of State for Education and Science. She gained many supporters, as well as fueling many protesters; specially when she felt forced to make cuts in the Educational budget and tossed out free milk in the schools. This action gained her the nickname, â€Å"Maggie Thatcher, milk snatcher. † Her popularity and fortitude as a leader rebounded quite nicely, and she became the Conservative Leader. On January 19th, 1976 Thatcher made a speech in Kensington Town Hall. During this speech, she boldly attacked the Soviet Union. Her most famous lines were: The Russians are bent on world dominance, and they are rapidly acquiring the means to become the most powerful imperial nation the world has seen. The men in the Sov iet Politburo do not have to worry about the ebb and flow of public opinion. They put guns before butter, while we put just about everything before guns. Due to this speech, Thatcher was nicknamed â€Å"The Iron Lady† by the Soviet Defense Ministry newspaper, Red Star. Although others may have been offended by this, Thatcher took great pride in gaining that reputation from a government she held little to no admiration for. During the winter of 78/79 an epidemic of strikes broke out across Britain. The trade union was demanding pay increases. The government in place at the time, the Labours, seemed to be losing the confidence of the public, so at the General Election of May 1979, the Conservative party won. Margaret Thatcher was now the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The first term of Thatcher’s Ministry was filled with economic pitfalls. She and her government put many long term goals into effect, which slowly proved to be successful. The economy was finally on the rise. Much political support was bestowed upon her because of this success, and re-election looked viable, yet that fate would be sealed by another event: The Falkland Islands. Argentina and Great Britain had been for years at odds with each other over the islands. The English had seized the Islands and remained in control of them since 1833. Yet on April 2, 1982 the Argentine troops invaded the island. They quickly were able to overcome the British marines stationed there. Margaret Thatcher working with the U. S. administration hoped that a more diplomatic means would be possible while attempting to regain the islands, yet when this approach failed, she quickly and assuredly ordered military action. In doing so, Britain regained the Falkland Islands by June of 1982. The electorate was quite impressed and she swiftly won the 1983 election. Mrs. Thatcher was a staunch anti-communist and a supporter of NATO’s decision to deploy U. S. Pershing and cruise missiles in Western Europe during the Cold War. She also took a stand against anti-nuclear demonstrators at Greenam Common. The demonstrators were set on stopping the delivery of the 160 missiles to be placed there. She also set the foundation for and delivered a modernized British Fleet consisting of Trident II nuclear submarines. She made her position quite clear as she stood with Ronald Reagan declaring that the Soviet Union was an evil enemy who deserved no compromise. No compromise, however, did not mean no discussion; Thatcher was not afraid to discuss the massive nuclear problem or the woes of communism with the newly elected Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev. She found him to be extremely open-minded. He was willing to debate, argue his point, yet listen to the other side. In an interview with CBS newsman Tom Fenton, she stated that he was the first person to have said: Look, all our hopes of communism are not being realized. It is not producing the standard of living, it is not p roducing the standard of technology, it is not producing the standard of social services. This total central control will not do, it will not do it, we have got to have more individual personal involvement. She felt that Gorbachev knew an increase of freedom was inevitable for improving his country. Thatcher found that she liked the man and was quoted as saying that she felt they could do business together. And business together, they did do. Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan were both instrumental in negotiations to end the Cold War and the threat of nuclear disaster. With approximately three years of talks behind them, the Soviets, under the leadership of Gorbachev, returned to the bargaining table to sign the INF Treaty which called for the withdrawal of missiles from both sides. This monumental moment, President Reagan expressed, could not have been accomplished without the endurance and courage of leaders such as Margaret Thatcher. Leading her country with a â€Å"touch o f iron† served Margaret Thatcher well. Tony Benn, a prominent figure of the Labour Party, noted in his diary of a former Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, that once he (Wilson) left office he was gone. â€Å"Nobody thinks of him anymore. † However, according to Rodney Brazier in his thesis: â€Å"The Downfall of Margaret Thatcher:† No one could make a similar assessment of Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, who was on several tests an outstanding Prime Minster who has left a considerable political mark. Margaret Thatcher will be remembered for years to come as a force to be reckoned with. She stood on her principals and never wavered. This phenomenal woman served not only her country well but also the free world. [ 1 ]. Margaret Thatcher Quotes. (n. d. ). In Famous Quotes and Quotations at BrainyQuote.

An Analysis Of Paul Robeson s The Power Of Negro Action

TITLE goes here This paper shall proceed as follows; I will begin exploring first the essay by Paul Robeson and highlighting some of the most striking and interesting facets, followed by the chapter from Rhonda Williams where I will explore the connections to the chapter by Robeson, and lastly I will look at the essay from Andrea Friedman, where I will further note interesting facets of the reading as well as create ties to the aforementioned works. Paul Robeson’s chapter â€Å"The Power of Negro Action† is rather straightforward from the outset. Robeson is presenting an empowering piece, which has several subsections relating to the central theme of collectivized action on the behalf of black people. One of the more interesting aspects of this chapter comes from the way in which Robeson calls for black people to use their agency to better their position. From the outset Robeson states, â€Å"I say that Negro action can be decisive. I say that we ourselves have the power to end terror and to win for ourselves peace and security throughout the land† (Robeson, 90). The interesting aspect of this quote is the fact that the paragraph proceeding it establishes the historical precedent of blacks not necessarily enacting the full degree of their agency. However, Robeson’s call proclaiming the power of black agency contrasts this and shows a progression toward the growing sentiments of blacks having more power than dominant society would like to portray. Robeson exclaims that the power thatShow MoreRelatedArt or Propaganda? - a comparison between Alain Locke and W.E.B.Dubois5435 Words   |  22 Pagesliterature we should try to loose the tremendous emotional wealth of the Negro and the dramatic strength of his problems through writing ... and other forms of art.

Management Theories Scott Straughan Free Essays

Investigate the development of management as a theory and discipline. Asses the relevance of these theories to modern day managers and identify the key management skills that will be of importance to the manager of the millennium. For the purpose of this essay modern day manager shall mean managers of the present day. We will write a custom essay sample on Management Theories Scott Straughan or any similar topic only for you Order Now Management skills are skills that managers need to be good at there work. In this essay I will be investigating management theories at the start of this century, then looking at the progression of management up until the present day, this will include research carried out by a number of people which gave growth to HRM as we know it today. I will then identify key management skills in these theories and assess their relevance to today†s management, I will also identify the management skills required in today†s workforce. At the turn of the century there were a lot of important developments in management. Oil companies (standard oil trust) and (u.s. steel, the first 1 billion dollar company) were rapidly expanding. Smaller and medium sized companies had to improve efficiency in order to survive against the big giants. Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915) began to look at the measurement of work, he broke down each task to find out how long it would take, he then planned ahead for numbers of workers wanted and what training they would need, he then decided what wages the workers were worth accordingly to what they accomplished. At the same time Henry ford (1896-1947) reduced his chassis assembly time from twelve and a half hours to ninety three minutes through using these methods. Managers were starting to plan ahead more to increase efficiency, as competition increased researchers began to look at other ways of improving efficiency even more, they started to look at the working environment. Elton mayo (1880-1949) carried out the ‘Hawthorne experiments†, they looked at relationships in the workplace and working conditions. Mayo found that peoples needs and attitudes had much more of an influence on productivity than the efficiency of the production line itself, this was called the human relations approach and is widely used today. The Hawthorne experiments looked at four areas :- 2. The relay assembly group experiments The purpose was to increase productivity. The illumination experiments looked at lighting and heating, mayo found even in poor working conditions productivity was still higher than average, the workers were working harder because someone was taking an interest in them. The relay assembly group experiments took six female workers and gave them there own separate areas to work in, they were given regular breaks and freedom to talk. The person who studied them also worked as their supervisor, the workers were consulted before any changes were made, and productivity was massively increased, again due to the fact someone was taking an interest in them. The bank wiring group studies involved fourteen male workers and was very similar to the relay assembly group experiments. Finally he carried out the interviewing program, this involved interviewing every worker (21,000 in total), they were asked about their opinion of the company they worked for and their attitudes towards their managers, the results were closely analysed afterwards. Mayo had found a way to increase productivity through better working relations and better working conditions. Productivity increased as a result of the following :- Due to better working relations groups of workers worked harder, but what about personnel motivation During the war most of the young men were fighting, managers had to keep up with an incredible demand, they were given older retired workers and women, women had never been widely employed in factories before this time. Managers looked to researchers to get the maximum effort out of workers. Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) argued people do not just work for money, but for basic needs such as shelter, food for survival, and higher needs such as self esteem and confidence. This is called Maslows hierarchy of needs, Maslow describes fives types of needs arranged in a hierarchy, Maslow assumed people always wanted more, one level should be the motivator to the next. 1. Physical needs – basic needs such as food, water, shelter, air, rest, and sex. 2. Safety needs – freedom from fear of threats, security and stability (pensions and healthcare) 3. Social needs – the need for acceptance within a group, friendship, love affection and comfort when feeling down. 4. Esteem needs – the need for achievement and recognition, respect for yourself. Managers can achieve this through training and development. 5. Self actualisation needs – the need for a person to achieve their full potential, accomplishment and growth. Not everyone meets these needs through work, some might gain them through social activities with friends, and an activity such as playing in a football team may achieve this. However some people are happy after achieving the first level and are not motivated to the next level, while others strive to improve themselves, this was the flaw in Maslows theory. More researchers began to look at HRM, there was still a lot to be discovered, Maslow had started the work and now more people were following in his footsteps, they started to look at positive thinking and the way management treated workers. Douglas McGregor (1906-1964) looked at traditional management styles compared to newer ones, these were called theory x and theory y. He found old methods assumed people did not want to work, had to be closely supervised and did not take much pride in their work, this was called theory x, theory y was completely the opposite and argued people did want to work and got a lot of satisfaction from taking pride in their work. McGregor argued â€Å"if you treat workers as responsible and intelligent people who want to work, that is the way they will behave†. He also looked at achievers and successful people and suggested these people took responsibility for their work and set themselves moderate achievable goals, low achievers came from poor cultural backgrounds, poor education and felt they could not achieve any goals they set, they could however be achievers through training and development. we have looked at the development of management from the early 1900†³s up until present day. All management styles traditional or modern focus on efficiency and productivity. Traditional management includes bureaucratic management which relies very much on rules, procedures, discipline and hierarchy, this causes a clear division between workers and management and causes low productivity. Scientific management focused on the â€Å"one best way† to do a job and did not take into account that workers know how to do their work better than management, again this method causes low productivity. Modern day managers have regular meeting with staff to discuss any problems they have, and identify help where it is needed. This is Japanese style management e which emphasizes on HRM and increasing productivity, modern management still uses a lot of traditional theories though. Technology is rapidly changing management with the introduction of computers, global communications and the Internet. The skills a modern day manager needs are changing as rapid as technology, the workplace is becoming more informal where we socialise as well as work. Traditional management was strict with rules and authority which workers were afraid of, there was no contact between management and workers and it seemed they both had completely different goals to achieve. Companies now work together as a teem with a common goal of increasing profit. Modern day managers are flexible to meet employees needs, they motivate and encourage workers to succeed, they have confidence, charisma and are patient. Managers should posses counselling skills and nurture there workers, this is a more feminine approach and are called soft skills. Do modern day managers bear any relevance to traditional skills Although traditional management styles seem prehistoric compared to today they are still relevant, Maslows hierarchy of needs can be compared to the corporate ladder, more people choose careers instead of just a job. Mayo†s Hawthorne experiments eventually led to laws being made on working conditions (Health and safety at work act). McGregor†s theory x and theory y, all managers now assume people want to work and take pride in it to. If asked which is the most relevant I would argue Maslow, most people can relate to his theories as the corporate ladder and I feel it is widely used now as a personnel motivator for employees. As the millennium approaches managers are forming even closer links with employees with the use of soft skills. Companies invest a lot of money in training of staff and can receive grants from the government for this purpose, appraisals are now widely used to coach and motivate staff.
