SAD DISCOVERY

————————-———————-
A man goes to see his psychiatrist because he’s horribly depressed. He’s tried everything — therapy, medication, but nothing works. “You know what,” his psychiatrist says, “go to the circus. There’s a clown there that makes everyone laugh. He’ll make you feel better.”

A few weeks pass, and the man is still depressed.”Didn’t you go watch the clown?” the psychiatrist asks. “Sorry Doc,” says the man. “You really should. That clown is some sort of miracle worker.”

“Doc,” replies the man. “That clown is me.

A KING SOLOMON FOLKTALE

——————ring——————
There is Jewish folktale about King Solomon who commissioned a jeweler to make him a very special ring. The king ordered that the ring should carry an inscription which would be sure to convert his sadness and depression to happiness whenever he read the words.

After much time, thought and deliberation, the royal jeweler presented his finished product to the king. Upon reading the inscription, King Solomon was so impressed that he directed his treasurer to pay the jeweler an amount of gold that made the jeweler the richest man in his village.

The inscription read: “And This Too Shall Pass.”

HELP YOUR BRAN TO REMEMBER

Bulb-in-head

The successful formation of memory depends on your frame of mind not only during and after an event occurs, but also beforehand.

If your brain is ‘primed’ to receive information, you will have better recall later on.

Tracking brain activity before an event, researchers scanned the brains of participants in a study during memory tests, and found that they could see the priming occurring. The brain activity before the event proved to be a predictor of recall.

Meaning is Key

When subjects prepared themselves by thinking in advance about the possible meanings of words that flashed on a computer screen, instead of treating them as random assemblages of letters, their memory for the words increased.

Conscious Thought

The priming activity was apparent in the frontal lobes of the brain, where conscious thinking occurs; stronger activity there meant more accurate recall.

This discovery bears out the common wisdom that thinking about meaning, rather than simply learning by rote, allows for greater retention.

YOU WANT ME TO DO WHAT?

This is undoubtedly the most expressive picture I’ve ever seen of an animal. You can almost hear him say these words; “You want me to do What?” The look on this dog’s face is priceless…

A LOOK BACK TO LAST YEAR

—————–———–

By Harvey Tobkes

Remember during the candidates debate between Hillary and Trump, he walked and stalked around the stage in back of her, trailing her steps in a menacing and annoying way as she spoke. So, if Hillary had the balls, she should have stopped speaking, turned to Trump, and in a motherly way using an authoritative tone of voice, asked him to please have a seat as he was distracting her (somewhat like hearing a mother say to her child…just do it because I am your mother).

She would have gained a hell of a lot of respect. Had Trump done other than requested by his “mother” he would have come off as an obnoxious, disobedient child.
