2018.6.20 * An Introduction to Recreational Math Weizmann Institute of Science - One of the things I love about Sudokus, probably (IMHO) the key for the great success, is that as puzzles these are almost self-explanatory by themselves in rules. And people feels so fast improving their proficiency with a little practise. LOW LEARNING CURVE but PROGRESSIVE MASTERING CURVE... this is something that all game designers are looking for their new prototypes. Almost a dream of perfect design.

- Praise what matters. Share the process and the product. Tell stories about the innovative work that is happening in our schools. * Albert Bandura’s social-cognitive learning theory - Bandura’s theory noted that our behavior is changed when we see a person take a specific action and be rewarded for that action. In the future, we are more likely to take that same action. This is vicarious learning in which we learn through imitation rather than through direct reinforcement.

- conversations for action < Lorena Barba - Flores Wintograd. * Fernando Flores - will assess you. He may make an offer, which you are free to accept or decline. If you accept, he will make a commitment to fulfill his promise. These simple words, or “speech acts,” form the vocabulary of a set of practices. By training people to consciously use words to articulate commitments and invoke better coordination, corporate leaders can reduce the misunderstandings and missteps that prevent so many corporations — and governments, for that matter — from realizing their potential.
- “conversation for action” or a “conversation for possibilities,” depending on the intent. method based on five basic speech acts: declaring, offering (and accepting offers), making requests and promises, asserting, and assessing.
- In organizations accustomed to what he calls the “cordial hypocrisy” of corporate life, this approach to assessment is transformative in itself. It replaces misunderstandings and resentment with trust, and it measurably improves team performance.

- 10 Habits Worth Starting in the Classroom 10. Reflect - We all need to reflect more. It is one of the most powerful learning tools, to self-assess and reflect on what we’ve learned, done, and need to do. Have students reflect multiple times a day, and keep it short at first. This time of “taking a moment” will revitalize their minds and keep a daily practice of thinking about thinking.
- 2017.1.3 - Hussman - internals, ‘leadership’ typically refers to the number of stocks achieving new highs and new lows; ‘breadth’ typically refers to the number of stocks advancing versus declining in a given day or week; and ‘participation’ typically refers to the percentage of stocks that are advancing or declining in tandem with the major indices. Hindenburg ‘Omens’ in their commonly presented form (NYSE new highs and new lows both greater than 2.5% of issues traded). From present valuation extremes, we expect 12-year S&P 500 total returns averaging just 0.8% annually, with a likely interim market collapse over the completion of this cycle on the order of 50-60%. Valuations are poor tools to gauge near-term market outcomes, but they are both invaluable and brutally honest about potential consequences over the complete market cycle. They also offer a consistent framework to understand market fluctuations. market conditions don’t forecast or require a near-term market collapse. Rather, they are currently permissive of a market collapse, and on average, market returns under such conditions have historically been quite negative until those conditions have cleared.
