What can I learn in 10 minutes that will be useful for the rest of my life?
Importance of Mathematics and variable change. I would like to share a scene from movie 21 (28) which concludes the importance of Statistics and variable change (Mathematics) in place of emotions while taking a decision. Without getting into the depth of movie lets try to grasp something which would make our decision making process more efficient. Scene A professor asks a question from student (Ben). italic Professor Suppose you are on a game show in which you have 3 door infront of you. The game host ask you to pick a door inside which there is a brand new car. Which door will you choose? Ben reply I would choose the first one. Professor Ok. Ben choosed door number 1. Now the game host opens door number 3 which is empty. Now you have a choice to change your choice of picking door once again. What would you like to do? Whether you stick to your decision or change? Ben reply I would switch my choice to door number 2. Professor How do you know he is not playing with your mind. Why would you switch the door! The game host knows where the car is. He can use reverse phycology on you. Ben reply I doesn't matter. My answer is based on statistics and variable change. Professor Please elaborate! Ben reply Initially when I was given a choice to choose door among 3 my chances of winning was 33.3%. After he opened the third door (which was empty) and offer me choice its 66.7% if I choose to switch. So yes! I would choose door number 2 and thankyou was that extra 33.3%. Professor Exactly! If you are confused to choose a decision always go for statistics and variable change. Most people don't switch their choice in fear emotions paranoia but Ben set aside his emoticon and let simple Mathematics to win a brand new car. horizontal-rule Actually we can apply this statistics and variable change concept in our daliy life; taking right decision in Interviews by setting aside our emotions and focus on simple Mathematics to take the right decision. Hope this might help! Pic source Screenshot from youtube. italic Edit Many are confused inment section so lets try to understand it in more simple way. By choosing a door you create two groups group A (your door) group B (the other door). The probability of car being in A is 33.3% (1) and probability of car being in B is 66.7% (2). This is for obvious reasons that host will open the wrong door on first place to make you decide (decision making). ( Initially when you choosed the door your probability of winning was 33.3%(1) andbined probability of other two door was 66.7% (1333.3%). italic Now after revealing third door which is empty you are down to two doors but they are still the same group A and B with same probability. When the host shows the door and it is empty that door probability shifts to the 2nd door (as initially they were havingbined probability) which is 66.7% (2). italic You should then pick group B as it has 66.7% (2) probability of hiding car. Lets take another example Suppose you are made to choose Ace of Spade from a deck of card. You randomly choosed one card. Your probability for winning bes (1). Now the host reveals each and every card and at last left with just one card which he places on table at side of your card. As the host knowingly eliminated the wrong card therefore the last card must have a probability of (51) of winning. Therefore you have a very high probability of winning in case you switch to his card. Hope this will help!
What are the first softwares you install on a new computer?
Lots! There would be no point in me even having aputer if it didn have at least these programs Mozilla Firefox (highly configurable and extendable web browser) Avast! antivirus (avoid infections) NoordVPN or Avast! Secureline (Virtual Private Network for privacy) Notepad++ ( editor optimized for programming) Open Office or Libre Office plete office suites). WinRAR (zips and unzips many kinds ofpressed archives such as *.zip *.rar *.tar *.lzh etc) WinDiff (fileparer; intended for programming but I use it to do incremental backups of all my data instead!) WinAmp (music player) Audacity (record and edit sounds for free) Vocaloid 3 Editor & several vocaloids (a vocaloid is a singer in a box basically) Lightshot (make screenshots of anything that is displayed on your screen) ordered-list I have many more programs installed on myputers but these 21 are what I would consider the essentials the basic programs I would install immediately on anyputer that I intend to actually use a lot. Yes I realize that you the reader will probably not agree and will say many of those aren essential to me. That because you aren me. Each person answering this question is likely to give a very different list. Of course people who have specific needs will need other software. For instance for Bit Torrent get Deluge (but be sure to have both NoordVPN and a proxy running first). For downloading files over Usenet get NewsBin and subscribe to Eweka. To access the darker corners of the Web install Tor. To play MMORPGs install the appropriate clients. Etc.
What are the top 3 tools/platforms content marketers should utilize in 2018?
Hey there There are not many good tools around and none that can deliver results which a human being with a level head can achieve. These could be the possible things you would need to execute a good content marketing plan in 218 Audience - Spend sometime and identify the right audience you are trying to connect to and their potential other data points Repurpose & Syndicate - Find ways to re-use the fabulous content you have made. Take the example of a movie- you have the entire movie to talk about but there are teasers trailers wallpapers plots reviews audio tracks background scores character briefs novels books e-books contests etc. All these are examples of the movie being repurposed to various formats. Similarly you should repurpose your hard made content and push it in various formats. As people consume information in the formats they like. Imagine making your article in to aplete audio file. Then make it in to an e-book. People who love audio they would love to listen. Post such repurposing the next main thing would be to have new people promoting the content. Now why would somebody else promote your content unless it makes sense for them and helps them understand their own things much better. We should be making content relevant for other users as well so that they can use it and refer back to us and hence syndication is done. ordered-list Hope my answer makes sense and is worth the time you spent reading it )
