What to Do When Learning the Ropes in Your Business Slows You Down

What to Do When Learning the Ropes in Your Business Slows You Down

Like me, you’ve probably heard Cole Porter’s classic tune “Begin the Beguine”… well, a whole lotta times. In old movies, in airport lounges, in jazz clubs. I remember my parents playing it on the hi-fi when I was a kid.

The song’s been performed by everybody from the Andrews Sisters, to Mario Lanza, to Sheryl Crow.

Anyway, a few minutes ago I heard “Begin the Beguine” on the satellite music service here at Starbucks. And after all these years, I finally wondered, what the hell is a “beguine”?

I checked it out. It’s a ballroom dance similar to the rumba. So I’m all set if the topic comes up in a future round of Trivial Pursuit.

I’ve always liked learning for the sake of learning. But I treat business learning differently. It’s vital, but I try not to get too bogged down in it.

In the past year, for example, I’ve learned a few basics about building and maintaining a website. But I have NOT taken time to master the finer details of webpage design, HTML code, or CSS.

I’ve learned fundamentals about recording audio, converting it to MP3, and uploading it to my site. But as for the subtle distinctions between this or that microphone, how to use a mixing board, or the tricks of audio editing and dubbing, forget it.

In other words, I make a point to always learn “just enough.” Just enough to get my business rolling. Just enough to keep it rolling for now.

And I’ll learn all the other stuff if, when, or as I need it.

If I’d worried about learning everything there was to know before I created my business, I’d never have gotten started. I’d still be lying on the sofa reading.

Don’t get me wrong. Continuing education and business learning are important. But sometimes you can get so knee-deep in learnin’ that you never get started.

So get going!…

Math Teaching Tip #1 – Remembering What It’s Like Not to Know

I had been to London a few times before, so I knew my way around pretty well. Nevertheless, I always carried a map. So I felt sure that I would not have any trouble finding my way to my appointment with a local education official-especially since he had given such good directions: “Take the Northern Line; get off at the Elephant and Castle; go straight out the door and cross to the other side of the road; go up the first street a couple hundred meters; our office is on the left, just before the park. You can’t miss it.”
That sounded pretty easy. I had ridden the Northern Line of the Underground dozens of times, although I had never gotten off at the Elephant and Castle. So I got off the Tube at the correct stop and went up the escalator, thinking to head straight out the door. That’s when my troubles began. When I got to the top of the escalator, there was not a door to go straight out from-there were five doors, all distributed around the circumference of a circular-shaped exit/entry area! The official hadn’t mentioned that. I had no idea which direction to exit. So much for “go straight out the door!”
But all was not lost. I had my trusty map, and I knew the name of the street I was headed for, so I just headed out the nearest door to look for the street sign. As I emerged, I discovered that the tube stop was a round island surrounded by several wide lanes of swirling traffic, with streets radiating out in several directions. The street signs in London are embedded in the walls of the buildings, and none of them could be seen from where I stood. (What is the practicality, I wondered, of street signs that are only visible once you’ve actually turned onto the street? Do they serve to offer reassurance to people who already know where they’re going?!)
It took a long time for me to wander around that circus (well, that is what they call it) until I finally found the right street. I finally arrived at my appointment somewhat late and rather perturbed. But the experience was not lost on me. The man had given me directions that described exactly what he did every day. But he failed to take into account that I had never been there before. And the fact that he did not remember what it was like to be there for the first time caused him to omit important information, which rendered his directions meaningless to me. They would only make sense to a person who had already been there! “You can’t miss it,” indeed.
It struck me as I left my appointment that this was a perfect metaphor for what often goes wrong with math education. I once heard a teacher introduce fractions to his class by pronouncing “numerator,” and “denominator,” writing them on the board, quizzing his pupils on the correct spelling of the words, and then verbally defining their meaning. While his presentation was technically correct, and was an accurate description of how he thought of fractions every day, the lesson was meaningless to many of his students because it provided no connection to physical or visual experience. The instructor had forgotten what it was like never to have seen or considered a picture of a fraction before, or to have divided an object or groups of objects into fractional parts. He had forgotten what it was like to not know about fractions. As a consequence, his instructions would make sense mainly to students who already knew about fractions; but the lesson would go right over the heads of other students, even when they’re diligently paying attention.
Fortunately, most teachers now know better than to present a fraction lesson like that-although that style of presentation is still pretty much the norm in algebra classes! To introduce fractions, it is more typical for the teacher to begin by drawing a circle on the blackboard, drawing vertical and horizontal diameters through it, shading three of the four resulting parts-and then proceed to tell the students that since there are four parts altogether, and three of them are shaded, we call this “three fourths.” A few teachers might consider this one illustration sufficient to define all fractions. But most teachers would provide several pictures of different fractions, and then ask volunteer students to name them properly. They then consider their introduction complete.
This type of presentation seems to many teachers to cover all the bases, so they are surprised and dismayed to discover later that a couple of their students still have no understanding of basic fractions whatsoever. Naturally, teachers feel a need to account for this “I taught it-but they didn’t learn …

Successful Careers in Radiology Require Continuing Education for Technicians – Some Useful Facts

Successful Careers in Radiology Require Continuing Education for Technicians – Some Useful Facts

Radiology, as many other high-tech fields of the modern health care industry, has become a very promising employment market. The demand for highly qualified professionals in this segment is permanently high. As for the employment outlooks for the future – they are expected to be even better than today. The population growth and the senior citizens segment growth lead to increasing demand for health care specialists, including radiology technicians. Besides, the radiology technicians can find employment everywhere all over the nation, so the necessity of relocation – moving with a family to some other unfamiliar city or state- does not present a great problem for such professionals. Advantages of radiology technician professional specialization determine the popularity of this specialization among other high-tech segments of health care industry. This is a great pro in favor of radiology specialization.

On the other hand, there are no pros without contras, as they say. The present-day professional environment of radiology is highly competitive – too many guys strive to get an attractive and rewarding job in the field – and dynamic. Consequently, a good professional, in order to stay in the team, should take care of constant upgrading and enhancement of the professional qualifications, which is officially required by health care industry regulation. It’s of critical importance to understand the necessity of continuing education for radiology technicians. Otherwise a professional will not be in position to advance his or her career in this field. The official requirement for radiology personnel qualifications are very strict and definite – any radiology technician registered with ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) is required to obtain 24 hours of continuing education credits – if not, the guy is going to lose the hard-earned professional status. What is even worse, minimum half of all these credits must be of Category A. This requirement came into effect fifteen years ago and nowadays the Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism takes care of upgrading the radiology technicians’ professional excellence and skills – they should always be of state-of-the-art quality!

Probably, a lot of people consider continuing education just a waste of time, but with the radiology specializations it is different – any radiologic technician should take the utmost care about staying on top of the game throughout the whole career. The technology and radiology applied sciences are constantly on the move, modern medical technology is advancing speedily, the health care protocols are changing. Any professional in health care industry needs to upgrade his or her skills and knowledge at least once in two years.

What are the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists requirements for the continuing education of radiology specialists?

According to requirements of ARRT any registered radiology technician is required to renew his or her registration. The minimum requirement is 24 continuing education credits during the last two years. You have to be able to prove that you have obtained those credits, otherwise the ARRT will not renew your registration, and it will be suspended. And you will be left without such critically important professional designation as the registration with ARRT! As you see, the continuing education is far from being waste of time for radiology specialists!

Is it difficult to provide 50% of Category A credits, as approved by Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism?

A piece of good news is that the minimum requirement of at least half of continuing education credits for radiology professionals is not as difficult as it sounds. The term “Category A activity credits” means that such credits need to be approved and evaluated by a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism, as simple as that. The difficulty level of such activities is not higher than the activities you were engaged with during the coursework you did to get your degree and become a certified radiologic technician. So, you do not have to worry about that. The detailed information related to Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism and its requirements is readily available at the official site of ARRT and other online resources.

Keeping up with the continuing education requirements is of critical importance for the successful career development and professional growth of any radiology technicians who cares about further working in the field of health care industry. The Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism is very far from being something of a fancy or a nasty hindrance, designed to make the life of radiology specialists miserable. Nothing of the kind, this procedure, though it might look troublesome for outsiders, helps a radiology specialist stay at the prime level of professional fitness, and that is an excellent thing in itself!…

Five Reasons You Might Want To Consider Private Tutoring

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be sure if you needed to consider private tutoring for your child? Many people have come across this exact situation. For most people it is just a passing, fleeting thought that never gets anything accomplished and is soon forgotten. Most believe that if they just ignore the situation it will go away and everything will be fine.
But this is your child that we are talking about. You just can’t afford to ignore the situation if he really does need some tutoring assistance. Private tutoring is something that you may need to take a good long hard look at if your child is showing any of the signs of having trouble with his schoolwork.
Let’s take at look at five signs that your child may in fact be in need of private tutoring.
First of all, has your child been missing a lot of school? Take into account that this could be for any reason. Was he sick and had to stay home for an extended period of time due to his illness? Did you take a long family vacation during the school year? Does he participate in a sport or other extracurricular activity that takes him away from classes a lot? Additionally, it’s important to remember that while he may have made up all of the assignments that he missed that is not the same as actually being in a classroom setting and there may be important nuances of the lessons that he has missed by not interacting with a live teacher.
Second, has he been hiding or lying about his homework, telling you that he doesn’t have any or not letting you see the homework that has been graded by his teacher? Hiding and lying about homework is a definite sign that he is having trouble understanding the material. That’s actually the reason that, as many have noted, it is important for parents to take an active role in helping children with their homework on a daily basis. If your child is having trouble in school he doesn’t want to be a disappointment to you or for you to think he is stupid so he will hide it from you as long as he can.
Third, is schoolwork starting to affect the whole family? And also is it causing a strain on the familial relationships? If so so then something needs to be done quickly to fix the situation. You should not allow the situation to get out of hand to the point of constant bickering.
Fourth, does your child come home with poor test scores even though he seems to understand the material and does well on his homework? It is possible that even though he comprehends the material perfectly he just does not understand the proper way to study for and take tests. These skills can be taught.
And lastly, is your child bored because he feels held back by the class? Private tutoring can be as much a benefit to a gifted child as it is to one who is falling behind. He may need to be challenged to keep his mind active and expanding.
Now, consider all those reasons and examine your situation carefully. Any of these points would suggest that you may want to consider private tutoring.…
