The Secret of A Good Performance

The speech has something other than words or essay writing, and it matters something. It's not so much about what you say, how much it is, how do you say that. Many speakers ignore their listeners, look over their heads or on the floor. They supposedly speak for themselves. There is no contact between the audience and speaker, no interconnection. This behavior kills the conversation, it also kills the public speaking. A good performance is, above all, a colloquial tone and spontaneity.

Any person is able to pronounce a speech. If you are in doubt, check yourself: knock down the most ignorant person you know, and when it comes up, it's probably say something, and say without any stop. To produce this rice, you need to practice. Do not copy others. If you speak directly, you are not like anyone else in the world. Make a statement of your personality, your own, peculiar to you only manner.

Speak with the listeners as if you were expecting them to stand up and answer you now. If they asked questions, your performance would almost certainly have improved right away. So imagine to yourself that someone has asked you questions and that you are answering him. Say aloud: You ask me where I know it. I'll tell you ... Such things seem quite natural; your phraseology in thesis writing will not be more official, it will warm up and give humanity a speech.

Put your soul in your speaker. True emotional sincerity will help more than all possible rules in the world.

There are four tricks that we all unknowingly use in a serious conversation. But do you use them, speaking publicly? Most people do not.

a) Do you accentuate the important words in the phrase and subordinate them to the less important? Do you pronounce all the words, approximately the same or when you pronounce the phrase, do you emphasize something?

b) Does the sound of your voice fluctuate, alternately rising and falling?

c) Do you change the tempo of your language by quickly spelling words that are not important and spending more time on those that you want to highlight?

d) Do you pause before expressing thoughts important to you and after them?

How to start a speech? Some writing tips:

1. The beginning of the speech is the greatest complication, but at the same time, it is extremely important, because at this moment the mind of the listeners is fresh and it is relatively easy to make an impression. If you rely here on chance, this can lead to very serious consequences; the beginning of the performance should be thoroughly prepared in advance.

2. The entry should be short and should consist of no more than one or two sentences. Often you can do without it. Start straight to the essence of your speech by spending it a minimum number of words. No one will object to this.

3. Newbies are inclined to start a performance either from a humorous story or with apologies. Both the one and the other usually are unsuccessful. Only very few people - very, very, very few - can successfully tell a funny anecdote. Usually, this attempt brings the audience into confusion, instead of delivering it the pleasure. The stories must be in place and should not be given just to tell them. Never apologize, as it usually offends your listeners and annoys them. Speak exactly what you are going to say, tell it quickly and sit down to your place.

4. The speaker may capture the attention of his audience in the following ways:

a) interested in listeners;

b) telling an interesting story from custom essay writing;

c) starting with a specific illustration;

d) using any item (for example, a coin);

e) asking questions;

e) starting with any stunning quote;

g) Show that the topic of the speech is connected with the vital interests of the listeners.

Facts You Need to Know About Teenage Dating in Digital Era

When you go through the articles about modern dating, it seems that there is no place for you if you are a teenager. Online dating is about serious relationships, as it seems quite unlikely that a Ukrainian or a Russian girl would date someone who is in his late teens. You need to have money to send her gifts and flowers, and your first offline date must take place in one of the best Kiev nightclubs. So, is online dating an adults-only phenomenon? To answer this question, we offer you to check out the list of facts about teenage dating.

Online Dating is Not You Piece of Cake
Seems like finding a partner via online services is really an adults-only thing. According to the 2015 Pew Research Centre's teen relationships survey, only 8% of teenagers have met their romantic partners online. Moreover, those 8 % have found their partners not through online dating services or apps, but through social networks like Facebook. But don't start thinking that it is some kind of injustice. The low percentage of teens searching for the partners online can be easily explained by the fact that teens have all the time that they need. High School is not the most time-devouring place in your life, besides you have a lot of people of your age around you that you can ask out. Adults have their work, which leaves little to no time for regular dating, which allows you to get to know your prospective partner. That's why they're much more into online dating, which can be done from the comfort of your home.

Social Media is a Platform for Flirting
Despite not being the platform for finding the partner, social networks often become platforms for teens to express their interest in their crush and for flirting. According to the 2015 Pew Research Centre's teen relationships survey, over 50% of teenagers befriended someone on Facebook or other social networks, in order to express their romantic interest. 47% of teenagers express their attraction by liking, commenting, or re-posting their crush's posts. At the same time, only 10% of teens flirt by sending flirty messages or sexy pictures of themselves. And 55% of teens prefer flirting with their crush face-to-face.

Texting is the Best Way to End a Relationship
Well, here is your big difference between teenagers and adults. A lot of adults start their relationship online, while 48% of teenagers tend to end their relationships via text messages. It seems like when we are teenagers we are afraid to end something in-person, while when we are adults we are afraid to start something in-person.

It is better to take your time and enjoy your offline dating, as you are unlikely to take your teenage years back. While you can ask someone out in-person – do it. While you can star relationship offline – do it. While you have a choice of whether to flirt online or offline, better stick with the second variant. It is always better to have a choice, so use it while you have it, as five years from now your dating is most likely to be limited to online platforms.

Atcharang Papaya

atchara, atcharang papaya, papaya, atcharang papaya recipe

Pickled papaya or commonly known as atchara is one of the popular side dishes or appetizer in the Philippines. It is good to be paired with a fried or a grilled dish like pork liempo and barbecue. It is even good to come with bistek.

Doing this dish requires a lot of time and patience since grated papaya is the main ingredient. But doing this is more enjoyable working in a Stained Glass Sinks.

Here is my version of Atcharang Papaya:

How to Turn your Backyard into a Play Paradise

Television and digital entertainment are beginning to dominate our children’s lives. And with Southeast Asia being the world’s fastest growing gaming market, the trend is only set to continue. But it’s the great outdoors rather than indoors that offers the most development opportunities for your kids. Freedom and space for movement helps develop gross motor skills, different styles of play encourage diverse social interactions, and being in nature challenges the brain and enhances mental wellbeing.

So, how do you entice your child away from the screen and move them outside? The answer lies in your own backyard! Simply create a child-friendly outdoor space that offers a play paradise where they can explore, be inspired and let off steam. Here are a few ideas to get you started with your child-friendly garden.

Add play equipment

The obvious place to start is to invest in play equipment, such as a slide or sand pit. But play equipment doesn’t need to be an expensive and bulky addition to your backyard. You may already have a tree that can be used for adventurous climbing. Or if your tree doesn’t lend itself to climbing, hang a tyre swing from a sturdy branch to guarantee good old-fashioned fun.

Add water

In our hot sticky climate, playing with water can be wonderfully refreshing. If you have an outdoor water tap, simply connect a hose and let the fun ensue. Or why not install a large water fountain to ensure you have an ever-present source of water play. This will also attract bathing birds - an absorbing spectacle - and provide an elegant, decorative centerpiece that you will be able to enjoy as much as your children.

Create a hideaway

Kids like nothing better than their own secret den. You can invest in a playhouse or tree house, but it might be possible to create a simple hideaway by hanging a hammock in a shady spot, placing a small garden seat beneath overhanging branches, or laying a secret path that leads to a cozy nook. Alternatively, have a portable tent to hand which can also be used for easy backyard camping expeditions.

Attract nature

Let your children discover the wonders of the natural world by attracting wildlife to your garden. If you have trees and palms, they will already be home to an array of birds and insects just waiting to be investigated. And to encourage more fauna, plant native flowering species, such as begonias and orchids, that will attract pollinating butterflies and insects. Equip your child with binoculars, a magnifying glass and identification books and they will become nature detectives!

Create a vegetable and fruit garden

Planting a vegetable and fruit garden together will open your child’s eyes to the miracle of growth and will encourage them to take ownership and tend to their plants. They will learn valuable lessons in science and be able to taste the literal fruits of their labor by harvesting and eating their produce. For a first easy step, try growing dragon fruit in pots.

Simply add a few of these elements to your backyard and watch your child reap the vast rewards of outdoor play, whether it be through physical movement, nature exploration or imaginary play. A host of opportunities await them on their doorstep.
