LAYOUT TALK Arise, Awake, and Stop Not Exams are just 2 to 3 months away for most students. It is time for students to sit and plan how they are going to study from now on and this period is very crucial. Education Experts say that it is for the students to analyse their study pattern and identify when they are most active. Some are most active in the night and some in the early morning. External disturbances are the least during these hours. Experts say that the most important aspect for any student to get high marks is the ability to sit in one place for at least 3 hours continuously at the same time and same place everyday. Depending on the age say for a 15 year old, 15 minutes of meditation before studies would do wonders to improve their concentration, confidence and memory power. And also before starting studies each one should frame a timetable to match their school or college work. To begin with the student can write the important points and then read them. Later when they pick up speed they can read and then practice writing only important words, formulae, diagrams etc. Keeping a separate notebook for practice and noting down doubts to be cleared later in the day from teachers is a sure formula for success in the exams. By being consistent and with regular practice the goal of achieving distinction is not far away. So all the best students!!

MIND WORKS-11 Unlock Your Creative Inspiration By Prof UK Athikkal --------How do we state our desired goals and outcomes in life? In answer to the question what do you want? The first rule on the blueprint for the success is that the outcome must be stated in positives. This may look simple and selfevident. But, most of the times we tend to emphasize what we don't want. “I want to lose weight”. “I want to reduce my tummy” Look at these statements. When we repeat such statements we are in fact re-creating images and internal dialogues of the things we don't desire or we want to get rid of. Such thought patterns reinforce the images of the things we don't desire, in our subconscious mind. Does it assist in the manifestation of such goals? Probably not. It may most probably do the reverse. Now take another case. Your close friend is facing distress in a particular situation. You console him by saying “Don't worry”. What image your statement creates in his thought process? Worrisome situation which he is already facing. It does not in any way help him to get out of his worry. Then what are the positive statements we are expected to make in the above examples? Instead of saying “I want to lose weight or reduce my tummy” we could say “I want to get my body trimmed” , or “I want to streamline my figure”. Such statements emphasize what we do want rather than what we want to get rid of. The images, internal dialogues and feelings created by such positive statements tend to assist their fulfillment or manifestation. Similarly, what is the pattern of thoughts when a person worries? He tends to create images and feelings of unpleasant and unwanted outcomes . Do such thoughts in any way help us to get the positive outcomes what we generally need. Probably not and when we ask someone not to worry, we are reminding him again the process of worrying rather than helping him to get out of the situation. It would be a better proposition to tell him to be cheerful or resourceful. A mother repeatedly asks her son not to watch TV, instead of telling him what he is


expected to do at that time. All our reprimands generally emphasize the negatives. Awareness of these aspects of our normal communication pitfalls generally help us to achieve the desired outcomes or objectives in our lives and help us to lead a more resourceful and energetic life.

Terracotta Tickles Passers-by in Siddapura Siddhapura: Terracotta craft involves using clay to prepare reddish brown unglazed earthenware intended as building material. The earthenware is hand-modeled into various figurines, votive images and plaques. Terracotta is molded in many states into figures inspired by local legends and iconography, and has been practiced for

centuries, since the Harappa civilization. The rural parts of India commonly display terracotta animal figures in places of worship or in the vicinity of temples. In some parts of Indian villages, the women folk create their own forms of Gods for worship and other decorative pieces for adorning their houses. Kanheiya Prajapati has a beautiful collection of terracotta works ideally suitable for decoration. His collections are from Bihar, Bengal and Gujarat. He comes from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh, the home to exquisite clay figures of animals. Today, terracotta pot and pottery, though is not used for basic needs, a designer pot, nevertheless, has retained its pride of place for exciting interior design and decoration. Kanheiya's collection of pottery work still evokes a rare affinity, not known by any other form of craft.

SCRIPTURE Roman Paganism If anything, the Romans had a practical attitude to religion, as to most things, which perhaps explains why they themselves had difficulty in taking to the idea of a single, all-seeing, all-powerful god In so far as the Romans had a religion of their own, it was not based on any central belief, but on a mixture of fragmented rituals, taboos, superstitions, and traditions which they collected over the years from a number of s o u r c e s . To the Romans, religion was less a spiritual experience than a contractual relationship between mankind and the forces which were believed to control people's existence and well-being. The result of such religious attitudes were two things: a state cult, the significant influence on political and military events of which outlasted the republic, and a private concern, in which the head of the family oversaw the domestic rituals and prayers in the same way as the representatives of the people performed the public ceremonials. However, as circumstances and people's view of the world changed, individuals whose personal religious needs remained unsatisfied turned increasingly during the first century AD to the mysteries, which were of Greek origin, and to the cults of the east.

parasite, which is injected into the bloodstream from the salivary glands of infected mosquitoes. There are a number of different species of parasite, but the deadliest is the Plasmodium falciparum parasite, which accounts for 90 per cent of deaths from malaria. The malaria parasite infects healthy red blood cells, where it r e p r o d u c e s . T h e P. falciparum parasite generates a family of molecules, known as PfEMP1, that are inserted into the surface of the infected red blood cells. The cells become sticky and adhere to the walls of blood vessels in tissues such as the brain. This prevents the cells being flushed through the spleen, where the parasites would be destroyed by the body's immune system, but also restricts blood supply to vital organs.

Health Limit your Salt Intake to 5 g

We Don't Know what it Takes to Understand the Tigers USA: Tiger Woods, the US golfer apologized for "transgressions", following a speculation about his personal life after a car crash last week. "I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart," Woods said "I have not been true to my values and the behaviour my family deserves." The incident created speculations in the US media, including that the crash followed an argument between Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren Woods about allegations of his involvement with another woman.

Research proved that high salt intake increases the risk of both stroke and cardiovascular disease. The association between high salt intake and high blood pressure is well established, and it has been suggested that a reduction in dietary salt intake has the potential to substantially reduce the levels of cardiovascular disease. The World Health O r g a n i z a t i o n recommended level of salt consumption is 5 g (about one teaspoon) per day at the population level. Analysis shows that a difference of 5 g a day in habitual salt intake is associated with a 23 percent difference in the rate of stroke and a 17 percent difference in the rate of total cardiovascular d i s e a s e . Reducing daily salt intake by 5 g at the population level could avert one and a quarter million deaths from stroke and almost three million deaths from cardiovascular disease each year.
