    Four Apples

    Posted on May 30, 2013 @ 4:39 pm

    Don’t ever think that the answer is wrong when someone gives you a reply that is different from what you expected. Somewhere, somehow there is an angle that you might not have thought about yet. There is always an explanation to something. This story made me think and smile.

    apples

    A teacher teaching Maths to seven-year-old Laiq asked him, “If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?”

    Within a few seconds Laiq replied confidently, “Four!”

    The dismayed teacher was expecting an effortless correct answer, three. She was disappointed. “Maybe the child did not listen properly.” – she thought.

    She repeated, “Laiq, listen carefully. If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?”

    Laiq had seen the disappointment on his teacher’s face. He calculated again on his fingers. But within him he was also searching for the answer that will make the teacher happy. His search for the answer was not for the correct one, but the one that will make his teacher happy.

    This time hesitatingly he replied, “Four.”

    The disappointment stayed on the teacher’s face. She remembered that Laiq liked strawberries.

    She thought maybe he doesn’t like apples and that is making him loose focus.

    This time with an exaggerated excitement and twinkling in her eyes she asked, “If I give you one strawberry and one strawberry and one strawberry, then how many you will have?”

    Seeing the teacher happy, young Laiq calculated on his fingers again. There was no pressure on him, but a little on the teacher. She wanted her new approach to succeed.

    With a hesitating smile young Laiq replied, “Three?”

    The teacher now had a victorious smile. Her approach had succeeded. She wanted to congratulate herself.

    But one last thing remained. Once again she asked him, “Now if I give you one apple and one apple and one more apple how many will you have?”

    Promptly Laiq answered, “Four!”

    The teacher was aghast. “How Laiq, how?” she demanded in a little stern and irritated voice.

    In a voice that was low and hesitating young Laiq replied, “Because I already have one apple in my bag.”

    Green Choice Carpet Cleaning

    Posted on @ 3:55 pm

    Some say having a carpet at home requires a high level of maintenance. Plus, they are hard to clean, is prone to mildew and can harbor harmful bacteria. That’s because a carpet flooring easily absorb stains and can easily get damaged. But don’t let these things discourage you from installing a carpet in your home. Carpets don’t simply beautify a home and you will actually enjoy more advantages than disavantages.

    Carpet

    For one, carpet provides comfort. As soon as you step into your room and feel the softness of your flooring, it relaxes you instantly. The softness of the floor gives guests a welcoming feeling and adds coziness in any room. And some of you may not know it but a carpet flooring provides extra insulation both during the summer or the cold months. Safety is another benefit you can enjoy when you have a carpet flooring. Small kids or elderly people are more prone to falls; the soft floor can save them from serious injuries.

    A carpet floor, when cleaned on a regular schedule can keep them looking and smelling fresh and clean. For a minimal fee, professional carpet cleaning services like Green Choice Carpet, will take care of your flooring. Vacuuming helps too only professional cleaners can clean it thoroughly.

    Why have a psychic reading?

    Posted on @ 3:09 pm

    Psychics and mediums have helped people for centuries in different areas of their lives. And today is no different, except it is now easier than ever to book a psychic reading thanks to the existence of the technology we have today. It used to be that you would have to find a local psychic that you could meet in person to have a reading, but with today almost everyone is online, so you can also have psychic readings remotely.

    This means that you can have a reading at home whenever you want one – often needing to wait for an appointment time. Psychics readings can be done over the phone, or by email, and even by Skype if you prefer the face-to-face contact. At sites like the circle.com, you can see which readers are available immediately, or you can book in a session for a future time and date that suits you.

    So what might you get out of having a psychic reading? The main reasons people consult psychics and mediums seem to be when they have a big decision to make about their future, or an important aspect of their life. This could be about work, love, friendships or it might concern their children. The beauty of consulting a psychic is that you can get an objective and impartial view of where your life is at the moment, and through the reading you will gain insight into how you might take your life in a different direction.

    Many people go into a session with a psychic thinking that it will give them all the answers to their problems, but this isn’t what you should hope for. A good psychic or medium will not promise to solve your problems, but instead to help you understand how past decisions have influenced your life until now and enable you to take steps to create a future that you want.

    Having a psychic reading isn’t for everyone, but many of the people who try it for the first time find them very uplifting and positive experiences, and then go on to have a regular reading once or twice a year.

    Backup Cameras for Trucks

    Posted on @ 12:00 am

    camera

    AmericanSecurityCo.com has backup cameras for trucks, and these devices should probably be installed in every truck around the world. Whenever you are driving a truck, you know that you are going to run into some trouble when it comes to backing that truck up into a spot. The main reason that this is so troubling is that trucks tend to be rather large and it can be hard to see what is behind you when you are driving a vehicle that is so large. If you are someone who is driving a truck these days, then you should definitely look into giving these kinds of cameras a chance. The idea may seem dumb at first, but the fact of the matter is that most people fall in love with these cameras after they use them for the first time.

    If anything, these cameras should be viewed as something that can help you when it comes to your own safety. You may feel like a better person if you can backup a truck without one of these cameras, but the fact of the matter is that the camera is always going to be the safer option. There is no reason to ignore this kind of technology when it has the potential to save lives and cut back on insurance claims. You can always backup your truck rather comfortably when you are using some kind of camera that shows you exactly what is going on behind you.

    Protect Plants from a Frisky Cat

    Posted on May 25, 2013 @ 4:54 pm

    santan

    Whenever your cat gets bored, she digs in your houseplants or worse, uses the planters as a litter box. Discourage her habit by placing a few whole cloves just under the soil. The spice is not harmful to pets, but kitties dislike its strong fragrance and will stay away from your plant for sure.

    The New York Street Pianos

    Posted on @ 4:44 pm

    There are a lot of reasons why the program featuring street pianos New York at SingforHope.org is successful. For one, each of the 88 pianos placed around the city displays its own unique artwork. These pianos are colorful and, in some cases, even seem to possess a personality!

    piano 2

    Find out some of the other appealing qualities of the New York street pianos program. Promoting the Arts The street pianos that have been decorated by artists attract the attention of every passerby. This is one simple way that the program draws attention to the importance of the arts to everyone living in the city and beyond. A passerby may stop to admire the artwork on the piano or perhaps sit down and try the keys. Either way, this program is making people stop and remember how much beauty can be found in the arts.

    Play Your Song for Everyone For just a few weeks, these street pianos can be played right on the sidewalks of the city. Some players are dabblers while others are dedicated artists. Everyone within earshot gets to hear the unique playing styles and talents of their neighbors via a street piano. This is another way that street pianos showcase the arts in NYC. Inspiration Finally, by putting the street pianos around the city, SingforHope.org is giving everyone a chance to find inspiration. Undoubtedly, these pianos have inspired people to take up piano lessons or participate in the arts in some other way!
