A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist. ´´The mental load. It´s incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene--you´re making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails--at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest ´where are my shoes?, ´do we have any cheese?...´´´ --Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma´s comic In her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load--about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it´s distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious.. If you´re not laughing, you´re probably crying in recognition. Emma´s comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence. Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been. shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L´Express drew 1.8 million views--a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian. Many women will recognize themselves in THE MENTAL LOAD, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really means to be a woman today.
Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 1,7, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Pädagogik des E-Learning und der Neuen Meidien), Veranstaltung: Instruktionspsychologische Aspekte des E-Learning, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In vielen Situationen des Alltags sowie des Arbeitslebens müssen Menschen mit verschiedensten Medien interagieren, um für sie relevante Informationen erhalten und somit ihre jeweiligen Ziele erreichen zu können. Dabei kann es vor allem in Situationen, in welchen die Aneignung von neuem Wissen notwendig ist, hilfreich sein, wenn dabei die durch das verwendete Medium vermittelten Inhalte an die kognitive Architektur und damit an die mentalen Ressourcen des Lernenden angepasst werden. Die Betrachtung verschiedener Anwendungsbereiche zeigt, dass die Berücksichtigung der vorhandenen kognitiven Ressourcen vor allem bei der Entwicklung von multimedialen Lernumgebungen, nicht nur hilfreich, sondern von enormer Bedeutung für die Wissensvermittlung ist. Aufgrund dieser Bedeutung für die Optimierung von Lernprozessen gab und gibt es nach wie vor starke Bestrebungen, Mittel und Wege zu finden, um die kognitive Belastung während des Lernens zuverlässig und präzise vorhersagen zu können.
An intriguing blend of science and sports that explores how some of the world´s greatest athletes are utilizing the last frontier of performance-enhancing technology - the mental mapping and engineering of their own brains - for peak performance and what it means for the future of athleticism, sports, and the rest of us. Moneyball showed how statistics were revolutionizing baseball. The Sports Gene revealed the role genetics play in sports. Now, Head in the Game examines the next evolution: how mental engineering - the manipulation of the cognitive processes of the brain - can make gifted athletes even better. For years technology - from EEG (electroencephalogram) to fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to video games, tablets, and personal data collection devices - have been used with soldiers to understand their physical and mental functioning. Touching on brain functionality vital to sports - both the ´´hard´´ (coordination, stimuli processing, functional memory, decision making, load processing) and the ´´soft´´ (emotion regulation, visualization, psychology, mindfulness) - this tech is now being adopted by scores of championship franchises and top athletes - including scrappy underdogs forced to innovate and elite players looking for an advantage. Star NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady, the NBA´s Kyle Korver, and Olympic volleyball champion Kerri Walsh are using mental engineering to up their game. It´s not luck that has transformed the San Antonio Spurs into a formidable force - it´s science, Sneed demonstrates. As mental engineering becomes widespread - taking athletes who are already freaks of nature and making them better - the impact on the multibillion-dollar sports industry will be dramatic on players, managers, trainers, owners, and even fans. Interviewing athletes and coaches, visiting training camps and sports science firms, Brandon Sneed offers a firsthand, on-the-ground look at th... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Tecosky.

James, letting go of you will be the hardest decision of my life. We were devoted and committed to one another. Secret clubs, family, friends, careers and undeniable chemistry filled our lives.

Learn about the process of German Reunification with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Reunification in Germany was a slow process. The country was divided between the communist East and the capitalist West from the end of World War Two in 1945 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. To understand how momentous a step reunification in Germany was, it is necessary to go back to the start of the division in 1945. When World War Two ended, the four Allied powers of the US, Britain, France and the Soviet Union divided Germany between themselves. This was to share the load of helping a war-ravaged country rebuild itself. The US, Britain and France were given land in the west of Germany and the Soviet Union was given land in the east of Germany. Due to the influence of the occupying forces, over time West Germany developed into a capitalist state and East Germany developed into a communist state.
