WHY YOU SHOULD DEVELOP THE HABIT OF READING..!

  1. To IMPROVE Your Financial status ( think and grow rich by Napolean Hill)

We all wish we could be wealthy. For most of us, it’s a far-off dream that someday, eventually, we might be able to turn ourselves into self-made millionaires. But the truth is, building wealth isn’t about putting all your hopes into “someday.” You’re never too old to start building wealth, but if you start when you’re young, you have far greater potential to amass a fortune–and more time to let that fortune compound itself as you grow older.

2. Improves your decision making skills (How to take decisions-A Book by Devdutt Pattanaik)

“Decision-making involves the selection of a course of action from among two or more possible alternatives in order to arrive at a solution for a given problem”.

As evidenced by the foregone definitions, decision making process is a consultative affair done by a comity of professionals to drive better functioning of any organization. Thereby, it is a continuous and dynamic activity that pervades all other activities pertaining to the organization. Since it is an ongoing activity, decision making process plays vital importance in the functioning of an organization. Since intellectual minds are involved in the process of decision making, it requires solid scientific knowledge coupled with skills and experience in addition to mental maturity.

 

 

3. Develop your Morning routine (5-AM CLUB– Robin Sharma)

We are taught to be kind to others. Yet, many of us fail to be kind to ourselves. Studies show that self-compassion brings positive traits like optimism, extroversion, wisdom, happiness, positivity and resilience. According to Emma Seppala, research psychologist at Stanford University, self-compassion involves three steps:

  • Recognize that you deserve care and concern like anyone else and that is why you must be kind and understanding with oneself.
  • Recognize that making mistakes and failing is part of life. So, do not be hard on yourself when you commit a mistake or fail and indulge in self-critical thoughts.
  • Be aware of one’s emotions and feelings.

Contrary to popular belief, self-compassion does not mean letting yourself off the hook. Rather, it means taking corrective action, albeit without being too self-critical.

 

4. Teaches about the money importance (Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert. T. Kiyosaki

In a time of credit cards, internet banking and online shopping, children don’t often see people buying products with physical money like notes and coins.

Not seeing notes and coins exchanged for purchases makes it harder for kids to get their heads around what things cost. They might see this invisible money as an abstract and unlimited resource rather than real money coming in and out of their family’s bank accounts.

Talk to your kids about money often to help them make this invisible money real.

Sony Full-Frame Mirrorless DSLR Camera

Why Sony Full-Frame Mirrorless DSLR Camera

 

Sony A7 III Overview

A full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) is one with an image sensor format that is the same of a 35 mm size format (36 mm × 24 mm) film. Historically, 35 mm was considered a small film format compared with medium format, large format and even larger.

The full-frame DSLR is also similar to the full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. Many digital cameras, both compact and SLR models, use a smaller frame than 35 mm frame as it is easier and cheaper to manufacture image sensors which has a smaller size. The earliest digital SLR models, like the SONY F4 or Kodak DCS 100, also used a smaller sensor.

Use of 35mm film-camera lenses

35mm lenses

 

The image shows the difference in the size of the sensors between an APS-C format DSLR (left) and a full-frame DSLR (right) .

full-frame DSLRs offer a number of advantages compared to their crop-sensor images. The advantage is wide-angle lenses which are designed for 35mm retain the same wide angle view of image. On crop-sensor DSLRs, wide-angle lenses have smaller angles of View.

Two photographs with the same lens and ISO, but a different sensor size: upon zooming in (insets), one notices there is less noise in the bottom picture (full-frame sensor) than in the top one (smaller sensor).

Full Frame vs. Crop Frame Sensor – The Field of View and Focal Length

The most common difference between full frame and crop sensor is their field of view. In fact the term “crop” says just exactly that. This means that if a full frame DSLR like a Nikon D800 and a crop-sensor DSLR like a Nikon D5600 take the same photo from the same distance, with the same lens and point of view, the D5600 will capture a tighter field of view than the D800.

An Example of a full frame and a crop frame image

Focal length measurements on lenses are based on the 35mm standard. The amount of difference in the field of view or focal length with a crop sensor is measured by its “Multiplier.”

For an example, a Nikon APS-C sensor has a 1.5x multiplier.Where, When a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens is attached to that Nikon DSLR, the focal length is multiplied by 1.5x and effectively acts like a 75mm lens on a full frame DSLR which is the change.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Full Frame And Crop Sensors

There are several advantages and disadvantages to each sensor size. We are going to avoid the technical details and just give you the most practical and general information.

Advantages of a Full Frame sensor – Generally, a full frame sensor can provide a broader dynamic range with better low light or high ISO performance yielding a very higher quality image than a crop sensor. Full frame sensors are also preferred when it comes to architectural photography due to having a wider angle which is useful with tilt or shift lenses.

A full frame DSLR will have a shallower depth of field than a crop sensor DSLR, which can be a beneficial asset. When shooting at the same EFFECTIVE focal length, using the same aperture settings and shooting from the exact same angle/distance to the subject, the full frame camera will have a shallower depth of field (bokeh effect) than the crop sensor camera.

This is because the larger the sensor, the longer the focal length of the lens needs to be to capture the same field of view. For an example, on a Canon 5D Mark III using a Canon 50mm f 1.4 lens gives the same focal length or field of view as using a 31mm lens on a Canon 7D. since it has a 1.6 crop multiplier which is equal to a 50mm. Now a 31mm lens doesn’t exist, but you get the idea. The larger the sensor, the longer the focal length required to create the same field of view, hence a shallower depth of field is created due to the additional focal length.

Advantages  of a Crop-Sensor – While a crop sensor DSLR doesn’t provide the same level of image quality as a full frame DSLR, it does offers major advantages when it comes to cost. It can also be very effective for telephoto photography. For example, this can be very useful when shooting sports, wildlife, and other types of journalism photos. Just imagine that on a Canon crop frame body such as a Canon 7D, your Canon 70-200mm f 2.8 lens can also be effective as a 112-320mm lens!

Let me clarify that this is a benefit, it doesn’t mean that you SHOULD use a crop sensor DSLR when shooting these types of photography. This is going to depend on your personal use, budget, and so on. For those on a budget, the additional focal length and low cost of the DSLR are great advantages. But, for a professional, you will get the best overall quality by having a full frame DSLR along with a longer telephoto lens.

CHOOSING YOUR RUNNING SHOES

CHOOSING YOUR RUNNING SHOES

 

 

Runner and the Shoes:

Many runners may be wearing the wrong shoes for their particular stride or the right shoes that were chosen for the adverse reasons. This is reported according to a new scientific evaluation about running shoes.

The link between running shoes and running injuries is surprisingly contentious  and  from a scientific point of view is  unsettled.

Most of us who run have heard that we should choose our shoes based, for the most part, on two broad technical criteria.

The  running shoes feel at ease when you’re standing in a shoe store, but the true examination comes several miles into your jog. You’ll soon realize that the ideal shoe has more to do with your running style and the shape of your foot than it does with the logo stitched on the side.

 

Categories of different Running Shoes:

Road-running shoes are designed for pavement and occasional forays onto packed surfaces with slight irregularities. Light and flexible, they’re made to cushion or stabilize feet during repetitive strides on hard, even surfaces.

Rail-running shoes are designed for off-road routes with rocks, mud, roots or other obstacles. They are improved with violent tread for solid grip and fortified to provide constancy, support and underfoot guard.

Cross-training shoes are intended for gym or Crossfit exercises or any balance action where having more  touch with  the earth is preferred over a wide platform sole.

 

Types of Running Shoes:

 

Neutral shoes can labor for gentle pronators, but are most excellent for neutral runners or people who tent to roll outward. These shoes offer some shock absorption and the medial support.

 

Some super-cushioned shoes offer as much as 50% more cushion than the traditional shoes for the shock absorption.

 

 

Stability shoes are for Good for runners who exhibit mild to moderate overpronation. They often include a firm “post” to reinforce the arch side of each midsole, an area highly impacted by overpronation.

Motion control shoes are best for runners who display reasonable to harsh overpronation, they provide features such as stiffer heels or a plan built on straighter lasts to counteract overpronation.


 

Barefoot shoes provide the bare least amount in protection from possible hazards on the ground. Lot of have no cushion in the heel pad and a very thin layer—as little as 3–4mm—of shoe between the skin and the ground.

All barefoot shoes feature a “zero drop” from heel to toe. This encourages a mid-foot or forefoot strike. Traditional running shoes, by contrast, feature a 10–12mm drop from the heel to the toe and offer more heel cushioning.

Minimalist shoes have a feature very lightweight construction, little to no arch sustain and a heel drop of about 4–8mm to encourage a natural running motion and a midfoot strike and provide cushioning and flexibility.

Few minimalist styles may provide stability posting to assist the overpronating runner change to a barefoot running movement.

Minimalist shoes should last you roughly 300 to 400 miles.

 

Choosing the Right Shoes:

Choosing the running shoes that will fit you best is easy:

Analyze  the type of running you do and your running style.Pick the category of shoe and features that match your needs and try on shoes to find the one that fits best.

Aa pair of running shoes should last between 400 to 500 miles of running or n to 4 months for the regular runners. Examine your shoes if the midsoles and outsoles are compressed or worn. If they are, it is the time to buy a new pair.

Review of Robin Sharma’s The 5AM Club

The 5AM Club

I,an assiatant professor usually teaches the professional course to the young generation student community is not enough nowadays.Actually they are expecting more as a personal endurence. One of the most usal thing I suggest to my mentees is to develop the habit of reading.Yes!Obviously the habit of reading makes you to grow through your life.sharing my own experience with the students is one of the way to make them read.Recently I had an opportunity to read a book by Robin sharma titled 5Am Club. For the people who never know about this concept of 5AM Club, here I shared some views what the legend Robin Sharma had written. The concept behind the book is daily you wake up at 5 AM, do twenty-minutes exercise, twenty-minutes planning and twenty-minutes study.

On the day when I shared this 5AM Club concept,really the students were very enthusiastic in following this in their daily life.But in his words itself Robin sharma wrote a point that this concept will wanish away easily. I was tired on the first day.It felt that I had not sleep the night before and my eyes were red. Really It was very hard and painful.All through the day the struggle continues and I managed to be done with my works.

The next day 5AM came and again I felt hard to wake, but managed. Now the case was different where I felt too much pain to carry forward my daily activities. So I decided at last to go bed earlier,this made a huge impact where I wake up with new energy the next day.Now the days were moved on waking up early becomes my daily routine.So I suggest the students to wait until the tipping point  is reached.

The personality development  always enhances the early wake up concept, where we find a good time to learn things with fresh minds. The only think that every one should follow in their life is “we should be  always unique ”.

Added to my views I suggest some of the highlighted points of the 5AM club,

  • However nice geniuses, business titans and therefore the world’s wisest folks begin their mornings to supply astonishing achievements.
  • A little-known formula you’ll be able to use instantly to get up early feeling galvanized, targeted and flooded with a fiery driveto urge the foremost out of every day
  • A in small stages methodology to guard the quietest hours of sunup therefore you’ve got time for exercise, self-renewal and private growth
  • A neuroscience-based follow verified to assist build it simple to rise whereas most of the people ar sleeping, supplying you with precious time for yourself to suppose, specific your creativeness and start the day peacefully rather than being rush
  • “Insider-only” ways to defend your gifts, abilities and dreams against digital distraction and trivial diversions therefore youget pleasure from fortune, influence and an impressive impact on the planet
  • Part declaration for mastery, half playbook for genius-grade productivity and half companion for a life lived superbly, The fiveAM Club could be a work that may rework your life. Forever.
