13 Ways to Develop Self-Directed Learning and Learn Faster

by koku_jin
Learning all alone is not a simple task. It takes trying out new study methods, knowing how you learn, and the motivation to keep doing that. While this all sounds simple on paper, it’s important to note people’s overall mood towards learning. For many people, it’s been years since they last picked up a book, let alone a textbook. I wouldn’t be surprised if most people stopped learning seriously after university or college. It’s good now that you are focusing on your learning anew. Because once you delve into what learning is, you’ll realize how school learning wasn’t the most […]

by koku_jin
Photo by Alika Jenner/Getty Images The second-year signal-caller sliced through Seattle on Sunday, betting on himself when it mattered most and leading the Ravens to victory The Ravens had screwed up. With the game tied at 13 late in the third quarter at the Seahawks’ 16-yard line, quarterback Lamar Jackson placed a touchdown pass into tight end Mark Andrews’s hands, but the ball was batted out. Before they could snap the ball on second-and-10, they took a delay-of-game penalty as Jackson was screaming for center Matt Skura to snap the ball. The snap came too late and Jackson spiked it […]

Need Advice Setting Up Wifi Network for 40 Active Users

by koku_jin
Hi guys, I've been having hard time getting 40 active users on a WiFi Network to work well.

My current setup is like this:https://photos.app.goo.gl/THWYKV3PjtFiSWrq5 All of the wifi routers is a consumer-grade Wifi router, the ones typically used at home or small office. (Like one of those 20-30$ routers). ROUTER 1 is connected to the server through LAN cable. ROUTER 2&3 are connected to ROUTER 1 through LAN cable as well. Users are split evenly amongst […]

Inclusion of a story in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it.

I’ve Used the Same 8 Beauty Products Since My Sophomore Year of High School

by koku_jin
I’m nothing if not a fan of efficiency. In high school, I ate the same breakfast, lunch, and dinner every single day for an entire semester. My thinking: Each of the three meals tasted good and gave me enough energy to get through the day. Why complicate my routine by giving myself unnecessary decisions to make? Around the same time, I adopted a similar approach with my makeup and toiletries (let’s call it my “best beauty products routine”) I found a go-to eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, statement eyeshadow, eyeshadow primer, face primer, facewash, and face lotion. (I’ve never been much of […]

Yankees Stave Off Elimination and Send ALCS Back to Houston

by koku_jin
NEW YORK — The Yankees may not win this year’s American League Championship Series. They may not become the 14th team to rally from a three-games-to-one deficit in a best-of seven, or the eighth to do so by finishing the job on the road — particularly against an Astros team with the majors’ best record and an historically powerful offense. But in the wake of a demoralizing Game 4 loss full of missed opportunities, sloppy defense, and the sudden end of CC Sabathia’s career, they met manager Aaron Boone’s immediate goal of sending the series back to Houston with a 4-1 victory […]

Mental health is low priority for community colleges

by koku_jin
When Harrisburg Area Community College, the largest community college in Pennsylvania, announced Thursday that it had stopped providing on-campus clinical counseling services to students, it was perhaps a sign of things to come. University and college administrators across the country have been increasingly saying that student mental health issues are one of the most pressing, and costly, challenges on campuses today. Four-year institutions are allocating larger portions of their budgets to mental health services for students, and they are feeling some financial strain. But community colleges — largely underfunded and facing declining enrollment — are seriously struggling to cover, much […]
