Yet the range of findings and level of disagreement are themselves hints that there are likely to be factors involved in building expertise that are neither genetic nor related to the amount of practice time.

One is the age at which a person picks up a violin, or a basketball, or a language. People who grow up in bilingual households fully integrate both languages at the same time that language-specialized areas in their brains are developing. The same may be true of many other skills — there may exist a critical window of learning in childhood that primes the brain to pick up skills quickly later on.

Other factors are much easier to control. For instance, scientists have shown that performance itself — that is, testing oneself, from memory — is a particularly strong form of practice. One of the studies that the new review paper includes found that chess masters with similar abilities varied widely in the amount of hours they reported practicing, from 3,000 to more than 25,000.

從一開始新聞的救出的受傷人數只有6人
漸漸的越來越多 代表著罹難者數量越來越少
很希望就這樣全數救出但最後救出的人數只停留在11人

一直以來都很討厭媒體在這時候還拍攝難過的家屬,有時甚至會問著那毫無意義的問題,也許是因為也曾有過這種經驗才更加反感

身邊有朋友的朋友差點搭上這班
不過幸運的逃過了
但看到這新聞還是很沈重啊

最近世界發生太多事了
以巴衝突
馬航失事
甚至還有一些事雖然大多數人不知道卻真實的發生

希望世界一切都能好好的
#RIP #hope #world #better

看到新聞時,我的腦袋變空白,沒想到小飛機、小旅程會這樣。也覺得最近世界壞掉了,每次看新聞只有不愉快的事。真的希望世界變好,希望大家能過平安的生活。

While I had a 7 hour teaching day, Seth went to the supermarket to get food. He said all of the vegetables were gone though there was a lot of meat left. We’ve made mashed potatoes and thai beef curry. 

By the time I left work at 8:40 it was spitting rain off and on and getting a lot windier. The city streets become wind tunnels. You’re fine for a bit and then you turn the corner, BAM. It almost knocks you over! During the night we could hear the howl of the wind and the heavy rain. 

At the first projection it looked the typhoon was going to hit Taipei. It actually went through the middle of the country. School and work has been called off today (Wednesday) just a I predicted. 

Right now it’s raining but not a downpour. I also can’t feel any wind very weird. Looks like we could’ve gone to school after all, naaaahhhh.

When there is no wind, it’s most likely that the center (eye) of the typhoon going by. The center of the typhoon is where the wind is weakest. The strongest wind comes from the outer portion of the typhoon. So a typhoon will pass in stages: strong wind from the outer portion, calm from the center, and strong wind again from the outer portion on the other side. Often people mistake the lack of winds for the end of the typhoon, when in reality, there are stronger winds to come. Stay safe!
