    Chakkar Chalaaye Ghanchakkar

    Cast: Zeeshan Aayub, Swanand Kirkire, Lubna Salim, Shruti Seth
    Director: Salim Arif
    Written By: Gulzar

    Synopsis:Salim Arif's Chakkar Chalaaye Ghanchakkar is based on the play written by Gulzar in the 1960s that drew inspiration from William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. After a few productions in the 60s, Gulzar adapted the play for cinema and it went on to become the celluloid classic, Angoor. This updated adaptation will be set in a small town in northern India. The story of the play is about two pairs of identical twins separated at birth and how their lives go haywire when they meet in adulthood. Raj Tilak and his wife are on a trip with their twin sons, both of whom they call Ashok. Since they look the same, they should be called the same, is Mr Tilak's reasoning. As fate would have it, they adopt another set of twins, both of whom they call Bahadur. An unfortunate accident then divides the family, leaving both parents with one child out of each pair of twins.

    Macrame is a textile art that uses knots rather than weaving or knitting. You can create beautiful patterns for wall hangings, for your garments, accessories or as a 3D structure to hold things like pots and bowls for plants to hang out in. Whilst most people will remember it as very retro 70's craft it is actually much older! The Victorians were really into it too. Whether you're a beginner or have tried macrame before, these classes will suit you. They cover the basic knots to build beautiful macrame pieces for your home, office or studio.

    Macrame workshops are a fun way to learn a new skill and to take something home that you can display and enjoy.

    Contents:
    Overhand Knot
    Larks Head Knot

    Square Knot:
    Half Knot
    Alternating Half Hitch
    Horizontal Double Half Hitch
    Diagonal Double Half Hitch
    Each student will receive a certificate.

    Foam roller workshop level 1 by dr rajani patil

    Foam rollers are used to soften, stretch and re-align the muscles in problem areas in order to relieve tension, promote recovery and prepare the body for additional training. The simple but versatile foam roller is a useful tool to alleviate the painful and stiff muscle knots experienced by runners, athletes and other active people. The normal wear and tear on the muscles as a result of exercising (and sometimes just moving around) produces 'knots' or 'trigger points' throughout your muscle tissue. These 'knots' can often surround nerves and cause pain or they can make an injury worse by overshadowing what is really going on. Although the stretching we do dynamically at the beginning of the workout and statically at the end of the workout helps, it is not enough to keep your muscle tissue healthy and to keep you pain free.  That's why you need to know Self-Myofascial Release therapy; it can be done by Foam Roller. This ACSM approved Practical Workshop is designed to demonstrate a range of fantastic myofascial release techniques and stability exercises using the foam rollers and these can be incorporated immediately into your client's program.

    What will you learn?
    - Understand the scientific basis for foam roller techniques prescription and progression.
    - Demonstrate the appropriate use of foam rollers for various conditions and general fitness.
    - Progressive exercises using foam rollers/lab

    Parasailing is a recreational aero sport activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle while attached to a parachute. It is different from paragliding which is free flying. This can be done by beginners without any adventure background or any hard training. It is done in a controlled environment under the supervision of a highly experienced ex IAF officer and qualified Aeronautical Engineers, though all activities are exposed to certain calculated risk.

    Parasailing is more stable and efficient, especially during the ascent mode. So wake up and challenge the fear inside you as you indulge in this adventure sport. You will certainly enjoy the bird’s eye view. The smile on your face is worth saving in your archive as you make a happy landing. This activity is based on weather conditions and body weight of the participant.

    Workshop - deciphering the masculine

    Category - Body Building

    Last Date- 2016-07-16

    Posted on- 2016-07-13 11:11:53

    A two day workshop to understand what is the masculine all about?

    In today's world, the masculine has become disconnected from its true potential due to social conditioning and absence of some of the guiding factors that helps the mature masculine to evolve. This perhaps is one of the most serious issues plaguing the world and our lives.

    This is an attempt to give a genuine chance to the true mature masculine emerging amongst us and taking on its role in the world today.

    The discussion will be around understanding the various masculine archetypes and what they are about. Identifying the characterisitcs and working on channeling them to our benefit in our daily lives.

    We will understand them better using famous identifiable personalities..

    And through this journey, we will attempt to understand the Divine masculine

    Who is it for?
    - For those wanting to understand the masculine around them - Father, husband, lover, brother, boss, son.. or just about anyone
    - For those wanting to understand their own inner masculine (this includes men and women as we all have a bit of both)
    - For those Curious to understand the male psyche

    Source - Wikipedia - Adventure lovers have found a unique way of enjoying the release of the dam water.Capitalising on the location near Mumbai, with its virtually undending source of adventure lovers, rafting is conducted on the river using the rapids generated by the rushing water released from the dam. Rafting of grade II and III can also be experienced over a 14 km circuit and can be enjoyed all day in the monsoon, or to coincide with the timing of the release of water from the dam during other times of the year. Rafting here is sometimes unavailable in the peak of summer, when the water becomes scarce. So what are you waiting for…?????

    INFORMATION

    Source - Wikipedia - The Kundalika is a river flowing from the Hills of Sahyadri to the Arabian Sea. This river flows through a small town called Bhira in the Indian State of Maharashtra, 150 km south east of Bombay (Mumbai). The important towns located on the banks of Kundalika are Kolad, Korlai, Chaul, Roha and Salav.

    River Kundalika is fed by the excess water from Tata Power's Mulshi Dam Project on to a series of hydroelectric projects and dams,including Ravalje followed by Bhira and then Dholvan, where the water is released in the morning typically at 6 am.
    The gush of the water reaches Sutarwadi at 7:30 am and water rises at Kolad at 10:00 am.

    THE FOOD & DOODLE TRAIL

     

    Everybody loves Bandra. This suburb gives out an extraordinary vibe which makes one feel connected. It is out of this love that we absolutely had to explore Bandra like we usually do – through food! But not the fancy restaurants that have recently taken Bandra by storm. We take you into the bylanes of Ranwar village, to some lovely family run eateries where you can have some authentic East Indian food!
    That’s not all. The good folks over at Asian Paints have been generous enough to sponsor some lovely doodle art at these family-run eateries.

    So come along on this lovely little walk, where you look at some lovely art, gorge on East Indian snacks, hear their story and many more amazing ones.

    Q: Super! When is it?
    A: 9th July 2016 at 4:30 PM. It’s a Saturday.

    Q: When & where do we meet?
    A: We all meet in the Colour Store by Asian Paints at 4:15 PM. It’s right opposite Bandra Police Station on Hill Road. Here’s the google maps link, just in case: https://goo.gl/maps/SxsV8S3waA32

    Q: How long would it take?
    A: About 2-3 hours typically, so your Saturday night plans are intact!

    Q: How many people is a crowd?
    A: We like to avoid crowds. So the tour would have a maximum of 10 people.

    Q: How much would it cost?
    A: Rs. 300 per person, including food, a small bottle of water, a souvenir and an awesome time!

    Q: What if I’m vegetarian?
    A: Well, almost all of the food is non-vegetarian.

    Q: What all should I be ready with?
    A: If it’s rainy, having an umbrella or a raincoat will definitely help. But please avoid huge umbrellas as walking would become difficult in the small lanes.

    Q: How do I book my spot?
    A: Just click on the ticket link for more details and booking. There are just 10 spots for this one. We’d recommend booking asap

    Posted on- 2016-07-07 04:02:38

    ABOUT EVENT:

    The fine arts hold an emotional power and beauty of expression that transcends the field of visual art - art that makes the imagination come alive through a painting so striking it makes the surreal seem true. To be surrounded by such a force is an enriching experience, and an exhibition that showcases these talents from across India is not one to be missed - even more so when it's for a worthwhile cause.

    Art for Concern, a fundraising initiative organised by Secure Giving, is back with its much awaited annual Monsoon Art Show this July. The exhibition brings together over 80 modern and contemporary artworks by over 45 artists, among them some of the country's most recognized painters. This vast display of fine arts is a varied selection of paintings and sculptures in the mediums of oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, charcoal/ink on paper, and watercolor on paper.
    The concept of the exhibition encircles an important cause, as funds raised through the event go towards supporting grassroots NGOs working in the areas of education, health and community development.

    An impressive selection of works by the country's leading artists will be on display and for sale, including pieces by the likes of Jogen Chowdhury, Maya Burman, Shuvaprasanna, Suneel Mamadapur, S. Harshavardhana, Rabin Mondal, Babu Xavier and more. The show also gives an opportunity to lesser known and underprivileged artists to display their work alongside stalwarts of the industry like Ajay De, K.G. Subramanyan, Jayasri Burman, Vrindavan Solanki, Paresh Maity, Sunil Padwal, giving them a rare platform for exposure.

    Talking about the initiative, Anjana Khanna, Head of Art for Concern says, 'It is heartening to see that over the years, Art for Concern has garnered the support of so many artists who feel the need to contribute to the cause. While the main goal of this unique initiative is to raise funds for those in need, it also showcases the works of many upcoming and underprivileged artists, giving them a valuable chance to show their prowess.'

    Quarto - Art Exhibition

    Art Musings opens their 2016 edition of Quarto with a group exhibition featuring four renowned artists - Ajay De, Samir Mondal, Lalu Prasad Shaw and Nandan Purkayastha.

    Ajay De's works are easily identifiable by his trademark use of charcoal, interspersed with a dash of red or blue. His use of light is masterful, while the mood of the work is evocative and enigmatic. Samir Mondal's watercolours are bold and incorporate the inherent richness of the medium of oil, with textures and structural features that add vitality and depth. Lalu Prasad Shaw's work is notable for its smooth synthesis of disparate stylistic elements. His works, mainly executed in gouache or tempera, are simple and graceful. Lastly, Nandan Purkayashtha's monochromatic ink drawings are full of detail and dimension and are rich in mythological and historical references.

    Overview

    SIG Technology in Partnership with Pitney Bowes presents a Workshop onMachine Learning in Global eCommerce

    Machine Learning is an exciting field where knowledge is inferred from data. This enables business to make better strategic decision. Machine Learning includes pattern mining, trend discovery, and predictive analytics. For Ecommerce, machine learning plays an important role in:

    • Product Classification
    • Product Recommendation
    • Product Search
    • Fraud Detection
    • Improving Conversion

    This workshop will be around the problems of “Product Classification ” and “Product Recommendation”.

    • Production Classification: To predict the most appropriate class for product description. E.g. “Highlander Men's Solid Casual Dark Green Shirt” should be classified for class “clothing”. Millions of dollars are spent by eCommerce firms to classify products. Many more millions are lost because of wrong classification.
    • Product Recommendation: To recommend new products based on users past behaviour. This helps in the challenge of conversion and ultimately margins in the business.

    "Software Defined...Everything"

    Software-defined has become the most clichéd term in the technology circles. It started with virtualization and is poised to take over almost every sphere of enterprise IT.

    You’ve seen, read and may even be evaluating Software defined networking (SDN), Software defined storage (SDS) or Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC). Expectedly, there’s information overload, and predictably, a lot of confusion. The risk of missing the bus on new technologies could mean potentially giving up on business efficiencies. The flip side would be investing millions on an evolving technology only to be left holding a lemon few months down the line.

    This is the dilemma staring IT executives in the face today. Fortunately, the technologies have evolved to a state where now there are tangible business benefits for the taking. Join us for perspective from one of the experts at the forefront of real world deployments of these technologies. It’s a capsule sized a session designed to present a clearer picture of your soon-to-be Software Defined world.

     

    SPEAKER PROFILE:

    Shriranga is the Senior Vice President – IT Engineering at Netmagic, an NTT Communications Company.

    Shriranga Mulay is in-charge of improving existing technology service offerings, identifying and building new services based on next-generation technologies and heads a 50+ member team based across India. Currently, he is working on implementing a new infrastructure monitoring and management platform as well as SDN (Software Defined Network). He has been the chief architect of Netmagic's cloud services platform creating the public cloud architecture in-house for maximum efficiency with minimal cost of operations.

    Shriranga Mulay has spent 13+ of his total 28+ years of experience at Netmagic. Prior to this, he has shouldered responsibilities at Datapro Electronics, Datapro Information Technology, and a brief entrepreneurial stint. At Datapro, he played a key role in overseeing the company through the Y2K transition, and rewrote the company’s own x400 to SMTP gateway code.

    His core strengths lie in systems engineering and has expertise in infrastructure designing and commercialization of new technologies, thus spearheading the roll out of new services at Netmagic.

    When not romancing with technology, Shriranga is passionate about retro music of the 70’s and 80’s especially those of RD Burman. He is also a keen cricket and soccer enthusiast.

    BLIND POETRY EDITION 2

     

    Blind Poetry is an anonymous poetry platform that takes place in the dark, literally. This allows a poet to recite personal poems with the security of anonymity and the comfort of the dark. You could dress up like Lady Gaga and still perform simplistic poems, because that’s the gift darkness gives you.

    At Blind Poetry, along with snapping your fingers you can wave the glowsticks provided to you, and have your own 4 minute mini concert.

    Since it’s dark, it goes without saying that we will not encourage people to read out of paper (since there is no light) or your phone (since we don’t want you to temporarily blind yourself).

    The only time we will be having any sort of light is for our Artist in the Spotlight who is an upcoming freshface in the poetry scene.

    Certificates and Fun is a given.
    Performers and Audience Entry is Rs.150.

    REVERSE WATERFALL TREK TO ANJANERI ON 7TH AUG 2016 WITH MAPPING JOURNEYS!

     

    Team Mapping Journeys!

    The fort of Anjaneri, being the birthplace of lord ‘Hanuman’, has a great historical importance! On the way from Anjaneri village to the Fort some carvings can be seen in the caves near the steps. Besides being intriguing and eye-catching, the caves and the inscriptions are believed to be from the Jain followers.
    The temple of ‘Anjani Mata’, a big marvelous temple devoted to the mother of Lord Hanuman, is another attraction.
    At a certain distance from this temple two different ways can be seen. The way to left-hand side takes us directly to ‘Seeta cave’ within 10 minutes.
    Another way takes us directly to citadel, where one more temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ can be seen. Between all the caves and greenery, the reverse waterfall stands to be the biggest attraction in the Anjaneri Trek!

    The Nagla block in Thane district at the northern most tip of the Sanjay Gandhi National park is a most unique haven for biodiversity.

Besides the varied vegetation, this is also an important corridor for leopards and other mammals to move to and fro from Tansa and Tungareshwar forests to Sanjay Gandhi National Park. With the advent of monsoon, the forest is buzzing with activity. Take in the soothing sights of the green forest, ephemeral plants, wild lilies, colorful bugs, spiders, praying mantis, grasshoppers and beetles and the sounds of the monsoon cicadas and crickets by taking a walk with us in this pristine forest.

    TREE PLANTATION DRIVE - KALYAN

     

    The mindless exploitation of natural resources by mankind has imperiled the existence of the planet itself.
    Increasing pollution, our poisoned rivers, an unstable ocean, the melting glaciers are all aggravated by human thoughtlessness.

    Tree plantation is a harbinger of prosperity.

    The importance of trees in
    1. purifying the air
    2. reducing global warming
    3. preventing soil erosion
    4. conservation of water
    5. maintaining the ecological balance
    6. providing natural resources as medicines

    7. habitats for faunal species
    8. providing nutrients to the soil etc. is well known

    Unfortunately, the
    overall green cover, not just in Kalyan but in other parts of the country is reducing and as a consequence,
    pollution is increasing at an alarming rate.

    Rapid constructions and mushrooming housing colonies have led to depletion of the green cover in many
    parts of this city.

    Increasing the green cover by tree plantation is one of the easiest yet effective measures towards reducing this imbalance.

    So Forest Department has chalked out a plan to increase green cover in Maharashtra by getting planted atleast 2 crore plants this rainy season.

    Motivated by this event and keeping in mind benefits of Tree Planation Mr. Narendra Pawar have decided to implement this drive in Kalyan as well.
    Our target is to plant atleast 1 Lakhs plants in Kalyan.
    This will increase green cover by a significant count

    This is a good initiative and we appeal people to join the campaign by planting more and more trees


    Date : 1st July 2016
    Venue : Kalyan

    > The Hike/Trek to Karnala is graded as Easy because of an easy trail which leads up to the fort; Endurance grade is Easy as it takes not more than 1.5 to 2hrs to get to the fort.

    > Wearing full clothes (Track pants + Full sleeve Shirt/Tshirt) is advisable – Prevents cuts & bruises while walking through the forest & also protects from insect bites.

    > Track pants advisable – Jeans can get uncomfortable on treks & also tend to soak & retain water if it rains, avoid as far as possible

    > Trekking/Sports shoes advisable – Covered feet provide safety from stubbing your toes on rocks, etc and also from insect/snake bite.

    > Extra Floaters/Footwear advisable – Sports shoes tend to open up/tear during treks through rain & having an extra pair of floaters helps.

    > A sturdy & comfortable haversack advisable – To stock all the gear & keep hands free while hiking.

    > Packing of all essentials in polythene advisable – To protect from getting wet in the rain.

    > A good torch is compulsory – In case of Emergency

    > 2 liters of water is compulsory – Drinking water is only available in a rock cut water tank.

His conceptual paintings are representations of the deep rooted subconscious of mankind.

    About the watercolor workshop: 

    Watercolor painting is considered as a master medium. On that point is something about watercolor that attracts everyone’s wide interest. The watercolor painting can serve the magic from spilled wet wash to detailed dry brush effect which no other medium can.

    Artists put his emotions into the painting where the pigments of watercolor play its major role in delivers the output. In this HOW6 workshop, the artist puts his thoughts on ‘Why Watercolor?’ through his demos with the landscape, mythical (conceptualized) art, portrait and other similar topics.

    COMICS & THE URBAN IMAGINATION Scaffolds, Layouts and Palimpsests: Comics & the Urban Imagination a short course in reading the city through representation by Lawrence Liang This course examines the intersection between comics and the imagination of the city both in terms of representation and also how architectural concepts may offer a new way of understanding the formal properties of comics. While scholars have mined cinema and modern art for the potential it offers as an archive of urban experience, there has been comparatively little done on the relationship between comics and urban experience. The course introduces participants to a range of international and Indian comics via the tropes of architecture, dystopia and labyrinths. Lawrence Liang is a lawyer and writer. A co founder of Alternative Law Forum, Liang also doubles up as a film and media scholar and is an avid reader of comics WHO SHOULD ATTEND • Any person interested in understanding comics. • Any person investigating the role of image and imagination in shaping urban form. • Any one interested in reading urban form and space through text, visuals and narrative.

    IGER PHOTOGRAPHY CAMP, TADOBA, JUNE 2016

     

    Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, “the jewel of Vidharva” - is Maharashtra’s oldest Tiger reserve. Tadoba was established in 1935 and was declared a National Park in 1955. Andhari Wildlife sanctuary was notified in 1986 and the Park and the sanctuary was unified in 1995 to declare it as Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR). It is one of the 28 Project Tiger Reserves of the country and is one of the best of these 28. TATR till date is least commercialized and thus maintains the pristine eco-system of the rich bio-diversity of the forest. DCP is organizing a thrilling Tiger Photography camp at Tadoba. During our stay, in addition to sharing tips and tricks of photographyng this majestic animal, we will also be sharing our views about the status of Tiger conservation in the country.

    3 indians eye rio berths in olympic qualifiers for pro boxers

    Date- 2016-07-04 12:13:06

    All the three Indians in fray will have to either make the final or win the box off which will take place between losing semifinalists to be assured of Rio berths.

    Aiming to become the first set of Indian professional boxers to compete in Olympics, WBC Asian title-holder Neeraj Goyat, Gaurav Bidhuri and Dilbag Singh will begin their campaign in the International Boxing Association’s final qualifying tournament for the Rio Games in Vargas, Venezuela.

    The event in Venezuela will mark a historic end to the dividing line between pros and amateurs.

    Gaurav (49kg), Neeraj (69kg) and Dilbag (81kg) will all be in action on Monday in the first round of the historic tournament, which was finalised after AIBA’s Extraordinary Congress last month voted overwhelmingly in favour of allowing pros into the Olympics, scheduled in Rio de Janeiro from August 5.

    The tournament will feature boxers from AIBA’s own professional events the World Series of Boxing (WSB) and AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) besides pro boxers from all over the world.

    However, none of the big names in the pro circuit have made themselves available for the tournament citing reasons ranging from fitness, lack of time for preparation and the threat of sanctions by their promoters and licensing bodies like the WBO and the IBA.

    As per the official entries released by AIBA, 79 boxers from 40 nations will compete for the 26 quota places on offer in Vargas.

    All the three Indians in fray will have to either make the final or win the box off which will take place between losing semifinalists to be assured of Rio berths.

    While Neeraj and Dilbag have been regulars on the WBC’s pro circuit, making them eligible for this tournament, Gaurav has made the cut by virtue of his three stints in the WSB, where he won four and lost an equal number of bouts.

    Neeraj will be fighting it out against Greece’s Dimitrios Poulikos Tsagkrakos and will be in the semifinals if he wins tomorrow.

    “All of us are very confident and we will definitely make the country proud by becoming the first Indian pro boxers to qualify for the Olympic Games. It is a historic opportunity for us and we will surely make it count,” Neeraj, who has seven wins in 11 pro fights under his belt, told PTI from Vargas.

    Gaurav will be squaring off against Ukraine’s Maksym Fatych in his opening bout. The Delhi-lad will also head straight into the semifinals if he wins and find himself up against top seed and local favourite Yoel Segundo Finol Rivas.

    Rivas is the American Boxing Confederation’s Continental Championships gold-medallist.

    Dilbag, on the other hand, will face Moldova’s Petru Ciobanu. Faced with a bigger draw, Dilbag will have to win two bouts to be in the last-four stage.

    So far, three Indian boxers Shiva Thapa (56kg), Manoj Kumar (64kg) and Vikas Krishan (75kg) have booked their tickets for the Olympics through qualifiers for amateurs.

    Lionel messi: argentina forward retires from international football

    Date- 2016-07-01 05:37:28

    Lionel Messi has retired from international duty after missing in a penalty shootout as Argentina lost a fourth major final in nine years.

    "For me, the national team is over," he said after defeat by Chile in the Copa America final. "I've done all I can. It hurts not to be a champion."

    Messi, 29, has won eight La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues with Spanish side Barcelona.

    But his only major international honour is Olympic gold at the 2008 Games.

    As well as losing two Copa America finals on penalties to Chile, Messi was in the Argentina side beaten 1-0 by Germany in the 2014 World Cup final.

    The forward, who was been awarded the Ballon d'Or five times, was also on the losing side against Brazil in the 2007 Copa America final.

    "It's been four finals, I tried," added Messi, who made his debut for Argentina in 2005 and has played 113 times for his country.

    "It was the thing I wanted the most, but I couldn't get it, so I think it's over.

     

    Matter Courtesy: http://www.bbc.com/

    "I think this is best for everyone. First of all for me, then for everyone.

    "I think there's a lot of people who want this, who obviously are not satisfied, as we are not satisfied reaching a final and not winning it.

    "It's very hard, but the decision is taken. Now I will not try more and there will be no going back."

    Messi had scored five times at this year's Copa America, including a superb free-kick in the semi-final win over hosts the USA.

    That goal made him his country's record scorer with 55 goals, eclipsing the 54-goal mark of striker Gabriel Batistuta.

    Reaction

    Argentina and Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero said he hoped Messi would "reflect" on his decision and reconsider.

    "I think he spoke while he was heated, because a beautiful opportunity escaped us," said Romero. "I can't imagine a national team without Messi."

    Sergio Aguero described the mood in the Argentina dressing room as "the worst I've ever been in" and suggested others may follow Messi's lead.

    "There are several players who are evaluating not continuing with the national team," the Manchester City striker told South American media.

    He added: "It is the worst defeat ever, worse than the two other finals. So the thinking is it might be time to make room for other players."

    Argentine newspaper La Nacion thinks Aguero, Javier Mascherano and Gonzalo Higuain are also set to retire, while ESPN Deportes reported Angel di Maria, Lucas Biglia, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Ever Banega could follow suit.

    After leaving Argentina for Barcelona when he was 13, it has been suggested there is "less room for forgiveness" for Messi in his native country.

    But following defeat by Chile, there was more criticism of Napoli striker Higuain, who missed the game's best chance when firing wide in a one-on-one with Chile keeper Claudio Bravo after 20 minutes.

    Higuain missed a key chance in the World Cup final against Germany in Brazil, too, and also missed a penalty in the shootout when Chile beat Argentina in last year's Copa final.

    Argentina are already six games into their qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup. They are third in the table, two points behind leaders Uruguay.

    The top four teams progress to the finals in Russia, while the team finishing fifth qualifies for a two-legged play-off against the best team from Oceania.

    Analysis

    South American football expert Tim Vickery:

    Before Sunday's match, Argentina football legend Diego Maradona said that the team should not bother coming home if they lose. Year in, year out, Messi has been more consistent at the highest level than Maradona was.

    But Maradona has that title. He was the leader of the pack when Argentina won the World Cup in 1986. His form in the quarters and the semi-finals, against England and Belgium, was out of this world...

    Shootout woe

    Sunday's Copa America final finished 0-0 after 120 minutes, with Chile eventually winning 4-2 on penalties.

    Messi missed Argentina's first attempt from the spot, ballooning his shot over the bar after Romero had denied Chile's Arturo Vidal.

    Lucas Biglia also missed from 12 yards, with Chilean substitute Francisco Silva scoring the decisive penalty in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    The Copa America usually takes place every four years, but this was an extra tournament to celebrate the competition's centenary

    U.s. returns $100 million of stolen artifacts to india

    Date- 2016-06-10 11:51:57

    It's taken a while, but India is finally welcoming home some long-lost national treasures.

    The U.S. has handed back more than 200 ancient artifacts, valued at more than $100 million, that were stolen from religious sites in India and smuggled out of the country.
     
    The artifacts included religious statues, bronzes and terracotta pieces, some of them dating back more than 2,000 years. They were returned to the Indian government Monday  at a Washington, D.C. ceremony attended by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
     
    "On behalf of President Obama, it is my great privilege to return these marvelous objects to the people of India," Lynch said.
     
    Attorney General Lorreta Lynch, right, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi shake hands during a ceremony marking the repatriation of over 200 artifacts to the Indian government, at Blair House in Washington, Monday, June 6, 2016. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)
     
    Most of the pieces were seized during Operation Hidden Idol, an investigation that began in 2007 after Homeland Security special agents received a tip about a shipment of seven crates destined for the United States and labeled as "marble garden table sets."
     
    Examination of the shipment in question revealed numerous antiquities. The shipment was imported by Subhash Kapoor, owner of Art of the Past Gallery in New York. The investigation found that Kapoor allegedly created false provenances to disguise the histories of his illicit antiquities, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
     
    The stolen treasures were recovered as a result of a massive collaborative effort between U.S. customs officials, New York and federal prosecutors, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Department of Justice's Office of International Affairs.
     
    "Today, more than 200 antiquities and cultural artifacts that speak to India's astounding history and beautiful culture are beginning their journey home, where they can be studied and reflected upon for generations to come," Lynch added.
     
    "It is my hope -- and the hope of the American people -- that this repatriation will serve as a sign of our great respect for India's culture."
    Prime Minister Modi thanked the U.S. for returning the national treasures to their rightful home.
     
     
    Among the pieces is a statue of Saint Manikkavacakar, a Hindu mystic and poet from the Chola period (circa 850 AD to 1250 AD), that was stolen from the Sivan Temple in Chennai, India. It's valued at $1.5 million.
     
    Another is a bronze sculpture of Hindu god Ganesha, which is estimated to be 1,000 years old.
    Since 2007 the U.S. has returned more than 8,000 stolen artifacts to 30 countries, including paintings from France, Germany, Poland and Austria; 15th to 18th century manuscripts from Italy and Peru; and cultural artifacts from China, Cambodia and Iraq.

    Since 2007 the U.S. has returned more than 8,000 stolen artifacts to 30 countries, including paintings from France, Germany, Poland and Austria; 15th to 18th century manuscripts from Italy and Peru; and cultural artifacts from China, Cambodia and Iraq.

    U.s. returns $100 million of stolen artifacts to india

    Date- 2016-06-10 11:49:23

    It's taken a while, but India is finally welcoming home some long-lost national treasures.

    The U.S. has handed back more than 200 ancient artifacts, valued at more than $100 million, that were stolen from religious sites in India and smuggled out of the country.
     
    The artifacts included religious statues, bronzes and terracotta pieces, some of them dating back more than 2,000 years. They were returned to the Indian government Monday  at a Washington, D.C. ceremony attended by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
     
    "On behalf of President Obama, it is my great privilege to return these marvelous objects to the people of India," Lynch said.

    Most of the pieces were seized during Operation Hidden Idol, an investigation that began in 2007 after Homeland Security special agents received a tip about a shipment of seven crates destined for the United States and labeled as "marble garden table sets."
     
    Examination of the shipment in question revealed numerous antiquities. The shipment was imported by Subhash Kapoor, owner of Art of the Past Gallery in New York. The investigation found that Kapoor allegedly created false provenances to disguise the histories of his illicit antiquities, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
     
    The stolen treasures were recovered as a result of a massive collaborative effort between U.S. customs officials, New York and federal prosecutors, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Department of Justice's Office of International Affairs.
     
    "Today, more than 200 antiquities and cultural artifacts that speak to India's astounding history and beautiful culture are beginning their journey home, where they can be studied and reflected upon for generations to come," Lynch added.
     
    "It is my hope -- and the hope of the American people -- that this repatriation will serve as a sign of our great respect for India's culture."
    Prime Minister Modi thanked the U.S. for returning the national treasures to their rightful home.
     
     
    Among the pieces is a statue of Saint Manikkavacakar, a Hindu mystic and poet from the Chola period (circa 850 AD to 1250 AD), that was stolen from the Sivan Temple in Chennai, India. It's valued at $1.5 million.

    Hockey great gordie howe dies at 88

    Date- 2016-06-10 11:10:31

    Gordie Howe, known as "Mr. Hockey" for a tough but skillful playing style that shattered records over a career spanning five decades, died on Friday at the age of 88, the National Hockey League's Detroit Red Wings said.

    The cause of death was not disclosed. Howe suffered two strokes in October 2014 and also from advanced dementia in recent years.

    "Today is a sad day for the Detroit Red Wings and the entire hockey world as together we mourn the loss of one of the greatest hockey players of all time," Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch said in a statement.

    "My condolences to the family of Gordie Howe, the Detroit Red Wings and all his fans around the world. He will always be Mr. Hockey," tweeted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Howe, a Canadian who spent his prime playing for the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League (NHL), was considered one of the greatest hockey players of all time. He may have been eclipsed only by fellow countryman Wayne Gretzky in terms of goals and points, but not in grit and longevity.

    Howe attributed his long career, 33 seasons, in such a rough sport to passion.

    "You've got to love what you're doing," he once said. "If you love it, you can overcome any handicap or the soreness or all the aches and pains and continue to play for a long, long time."

    Howe joined the National Hockey League's Red Wings in 1946 and led them to four Stanley Cup championships before retiring in 1971 after 25 seasons with the team.

    Howe was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972 but by the next year he was on the ice again.

    He joined the Houston Aeros of the upstart World Hockey Association (WHA), alongside sons Mark and Marty, and taking the team to two consecutive championships. He would say that playing with his sons was the highlight of his career.

    All three Howes joined the WHA's New England Whalers in 1977 and when the league folded two years later, the Whalers joined the NHL, giving Howe one more season in hockey's top league.

    When he retired for a second time in 1980, Howe was the NHL's regular season leader in career goals and points, both records later broken by Gretzky.

    Howe, the only player to play in the NHL after turning 50, would play all 80 games in his final season as well as a handful of games after turning 52.

    Gordon Howe was born in the small farming town of Floral, Saskatchewan, and put on a pair of ice skates when he was 4 years old. He played in an organized league before he was 10 and had a tryout with the NHL's New York Rangers at 15 but failed to impress.

    A year later, a Red Wings scout discovered Howe and two years after that, in October 1946, he scored a goal in his NHL debut in what proved to be the start of one of the game's most prolific careers.

    Howe went on to become a 23-time All-Star, won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL's Most Valuable Player six times and led the league in scoring six times.

    He was part of hockey's most fabled scoring units, the so-called "Production Line" in reference to Detroit's auto industry, alongside Sid Abel and Ted Lindsay.

    Howe finished in the top five in NHL scoring for 20 consecutive seasons and still holds the record for most consecutive 20-goal seasons at 22.

    The term "Gordie Howe hat trick," consisting of a goal, an assist and a fight in the same game, was coined in reference to the powerful right wing's reputation for never backing away from a scuffle.

    Howe played a remarkable 2,421 games, including playoffs, over his professional career. He is second on the NHL's all-time goals list with 801, behind Gretzky with 894, and fourth on the points list with 1,850.

    At the age of 69, Howe returned to the game in 1997 with the International Hockey League's Detroit Vipers, playing just one shift for less than a minute.

    Howe was married to Colleen Joffa Howe for 55 years until her death in 2009. She managed the business affairs of Howe and their sons Mark and Marty. The Howes also had a son Murray and daughter Cathy.

    Why traveling is good for the soul

    Date- 2016-06-29 05:24:25

     

    It’s needless to say that traveling broadens the mind, but what many neglect to realize is that traveling is also good for the soul. It is not just the novelty of the experience that enriches the soul. How we conduct ourselves when we travel, how we respond to unfamiliar situations and stimuli, and how we perceive and react to changes and discomfort, determine how we grow spiritually. Travel does not only let you tick items off your bucket list, but also presents opportunities for you to evolve spiritually. Here’s how.

    1. Traveling makes you slow down and pause.

    Imagine a day on your travels. You wake up late and have a laid-back breakfast before heading out for a day of sightseeing, exploration, spending time in nature, or shopping – all done at a leisurely pace of course. Or instead, you may choose to spend the whole day lounging on the beach, soaking up the sun, and staring at the waves. When you travel, you are able slow down, pause for a second and consciously notice what’s going on around you; allowing yourself to truly appreciate the beauty of life surrounding you.

    Slowing down is good for your harried nerves and frazzled mind and is absolutely a great way to relieve stress. Traveling also makes you realize that some of the most precious things in life should be savored slowly.

    2. Traveling makes you step out of your comfort zone.

    Traveling most definitely forces you to think outside the box. Whether you have to deal with delayed flights, or you were left stranded at the airport overnight, staying in a cramped hotel room with no hot water and plenty of bugs, trying to explain to the street vendor that you are a vegetarian in a language completely foreign to you – traveling can be challenging… but challenging is great for the soul! There will be food that does not agree with you, but you can handle it; or inconsiderate and rude co-travelers who make life difficult for you, but they will only make your tolerance for others stronger. Traveling will make you step out of your comfort zone and compel you to get used to different tastes, people, and situations that would usually make you cringe back home.

    Learning to adapt to unfamiliar realities and discomfort stretches your mind and gives you the mental workout that was missing from your previous day to day routine. Becoming more adaptable and tolerant will only strengthen your soul.

    3. Traveling teaches you to embrace change and accept uncertainty.

    Nothing is constant when you are away from home and hopping from one place to the other. The scenes change, the people change – their behavior, their language, their culture and customs are constantly changing as you continue along your journey.

    When you travel, you never know what you’ll find once you turn the corner. As much as you think you can plan ahead, there will always be bumps along the way. When you travel, you are in unfamiliar territory. Embrace uncertainty, let go of control and enjoy the excitement, freedom from worries and peace of mind it brings you.

    Uncertainty is most certain when you travel; embrace it and enjoy the trip. Carry this attitude back home, and go through life expecting nothing to remain the same. Embrace uncertainty and accept change, and be more at peace with yourself than ever before.

    4. Traveling teaches you to be mindful.

    Mindfulness is being able to concentrate on and be fully aware of what is going on in the present moment with a non-judgmental attitude. You do not attach a “good” or a “bad” tag to the experience. You take part in life as it unfolds around you without worrying about outcomes.

    Being mindful while traveling means enjoying the sights and sounds without worrying about the mails lying unread in your inbox. Being a mindful traveler means you appreciate where you are without comparing it—favorably or unfavorably—to what you’re used to back home. Mindfulness traveling lets you discover hidden joys and simple pleasures that otherwise remain hidden from view when you look with judgemental eyes and compare with prejudiced views.

    It might be worth it to start practicing mindful meditation on a regular basis in order to prepare your mind and spirit for a mindful travel experience.  One of my favorite training videos is this one – a 20 minute guided mindfulness meditation practice.

    5. Traveling teaches you gratitude.

    There is something about being on the road and hopping from one exciting place to the other that loosens our inhibitions and unveils our true essence. (Or do we open up because we are not stressing over deadlines to meet and bills to pay?) Whatever the reason, traveling helps you appreciate the present moment; it fills you with gratitude.

    Traveling is a balm for the jaded soul that had so long been accustomed to listening to the demands of the ego. When you travel, you open your heart to strangers and new experiences. You learn to accept change and be at peace when things are not delivered made to order. Traveling gives you new insights and alters your perspective. Traveling is always an enlightening and spiritually uplifting experience.

    6. Most importantly, it teaches you to live in the NOW.

    As important as it is to plan for the future, no one really knows what will happen next week, tomorrow, or even ten minutes from now. Traveling embeds in us the fundamentals of living for the moment and not taking life for granted. It teaches us to say yes more often and not be afraid of what others might think. When you are on the road, every second of every day is a new journey, so you must take advantage of this opportunity and seize the day! Forget about being late to work, if you are late for your bus, there is always a next one – besides you never know what experiences await you while you’re stuck in a small town waiting.

    I realize that traveling may seem out of reach and even impossible to some. But it doesn’t have to be. There are always sacrifices that can be made in order to get there. If you feel like you are overwhelmed with the stress of day to day life or that your mind and body are miles away from your soul, it may be time for your next trip – even if it’s just to the closest town, beach or park. So what are you waiting for? Go! Go! Go!

    6 mistakes to avoid when painting with bold color

    Date- 2016-06-29 05:15:25

     

    Experimenting with a bright paint color is a great way to bring a sense of drama and glamour to a room, but choosing the right color can be a tricky process. A color that looks muted on a sample can be too intense when applied to all four walls. Textures and tones found throughout the space can have a tremendous impact on how the color reads in the room. Six design experts give us their top tips to avoid common mistakes when going bold with color.

     

    Mistake #1: Choosing a Color without Testing Samples.

    One of the most fatal mistakes people make when painting with bright or dark colors is that they choose the shade from an itty-bitty paint chip without experiencing the color in the natural light of their space. Always put up samples of at least 2-3 different hues on all four walls of a room before ultimately selecting the winner. Natural light is everything!


    Mistake #2: Trying to Do Too Much.

    Use one bright color surrounding an entire room to create elegance and drama. Using multiple bright colors in one space can diminish the effect

     

    Mistake #3: Forgetting Other Materials & Colors in the Room.

    Pay close to attention to the materials of the floor and the color of ceiling, as they will heavily interact with the colors chosen for the wall. Colors change when next to one another, but it is easy to forget that when looking at a paint deck and falling in love with a dramatic color.

     

    Mistake #4: Thinking that All Whites Are the Same When It Comes to Trim.

    Use the appropriate white for trim with bright colored walls. Warm tones need a white with a yellow undertone and cool tones need a white with a cool undertone. If you don’t, for example, a warm white will read yellow against a bright blue or a cool white will read gray (or dirty) against a warm orange

     

    Mistake #5: Not Using Accent Colors for Balance.

    When painting a room a bright color, offset it with a complementary color so the bright color is not too dominant. For instance, if your walls are bright orange, use accents of teal. If your room is light purple, use green in the room to create balance.

     

    Mistake #6: Not Supporting the Color in Other Areas of the Room.

    Establish a color and coordination relationship (close or distant) with all items in a space, and then prioritize which story should be told the loudest. This ensures that no matter how bold or dramatic the color on the wall is, its placement is substantiated by the supporting elements around it.

    13 acrylic painting techniques all beginners should try

    Date- 2016-06-29 05:04:40

    You've got your acrylic paint, your work surface, and you're really inspired to paint. But how exactly do you do get started? Here's a guide to acrylic painting techniques for beginners that will help you begin your artistic journey.

    Once you've assembled all of the necessary tools for acrylic painting, you're ready for the fun part: putting paint to paper or canvas. Here, we'll explore some easy key techniques for applying paint, mixing color, and building paintings so that you can paint like a pro in no time.

    Techniques for paint application

    The most basic supplies (brush, acrylic paint and paper) can be used in a variety of ways. These are some accessible techniques for applying paint to paper in a variety of styles. 

    Dry brush 

    When paint is applied to canvas or work surface using a dry brush and paint undiluted by water, you'll create a strong current of color on the page. Your lines will be uneven, as they won't have water to soften the edges, but this can be a purposeful painterly effect. Dry brush application lends texture and movement to lines. 

    Washing

    You can treat acrylic somewhat like watercolor when you dilute the paint with enough water. You can use the watered down paint to apply translucent washes on your surface. However, unlike watercolor, the acrylic paint will set permanently. Mixing wash and dry brush methods can be very effective in creating a variety of textures in a single piece.

    Stippling 

    This is a method used in drawing which can also be used with paint (Georges Seurat's work is a fine and famous example). Creating an assemblage of tiny dots to create imagery can be an effective way to show texture and to create a compelling scene with subtle variations in color. 

    Flicking 

    Using a fairly wet brush, you can flick paint onto a work surface for an uneven splatter effect. It's fantastic for creating an abstract landscape or a starry night or for just adding texture to a piece. 

    Dabbing 

    Using a corner of a sponge or even a piece of paper towel, you can dab on accents of color. Think of it like very artistic sponge painting. Dabbing adds a lot of texture and movement to a piece. For instance, on the painting above, dabbing with a sponge perfectly captured the texture and movement of trees swaying in a light breeze. 

    Detailing 

    A small, fine brush can be used to apply details, such as the whites of eyes or the glisten on the wing of a bird. In our tutorial on how to draw eyes, you'll get a fantastic primer on detail work in acrylic, which can carry over to different subject matters. 

    Palette knife

    Applying paint with a palette knife is an instant way to make your painting "artsy." It might seem intimidating or advanced, but it's a technique accessible even to beginners. Simply use the palette knife to scrape up a bit of paint and apply it to your work surface. Pretend that you're artfully spreading buttercream on a cake or even butter on bread, and you'll get the idea pretty quickly. 

    Techniques for building a painting 

    One of the great things about these techniques for building a painting is that they will grow as your skills develop. Mastering these basic techniques is like laying a groundwork for your future painting. These techniques can become more involved complex as you advance. 

    Underpainting

    Start your painting by creating a "sketch" of the image in paint. Often this is done in a color that contrasts with the palette you have in mind for the finished piece. You can paint over the underpainting entirely using opaque acrylic to cover any evidence of the paint below, or you can let parts of it shine through for a dimensional effect.

    Glazing

    By incorporating matte medium into your paint, you can create luminous scenes. The technique, which is detailed in this tutorial, is simple: Mix acrylic paint with a small amount of matte medium and apply the paint in thin layers, building the color until it creates a rich, complex color. 

    Layering

    Layering, which can be combined with either of the two above methods, is simply to paint in layers. This means that you'll build the painting from the bottom up. You'll start by painting big blocks of color, often as washes, and then adding more and more refinement as you add layers. The technique is detailed in this post about how to paint a self-portrait, but the method could be applied to paint other subject matter.

    Paint in blocks of color

    This is a fantastic method for beginners. Trace your image, separating each color or tone into separate shapes. Create a palette, and then paint in the shapes as if it were your own DIY paint by numbers piece. This is an easy method with monochromatic palettes or can be employed with a variety of colors, too. 

    Color mixing techniques

    Mixing acrylic colors is fairly simple: Combine colors and mix using a palette knife. But once you've mastered color mixing, you can explore some more creative methods.

    Partially mix colors before painting

    Instead of fully mixing the two colors, just give them a brief mix with your palette knife. Then, use the partially mixed colors to paint. You'll get a fascinating mingling of colors as you apply the paint to your work surface. 

    Create a family of colors

    Creating a family of colors or tones to work with in a painting can help you create subtle variances in your painting. Whether it's slight varieties of skin tones or varying shades of pink, having a family of tones pre-mixed before you paint can really help streamline the process. 

    Then, get creative

    While there are a few tried-and-true techniques all beginners should try out, don't limit yourself to the basics! Mix and match these methods and techniques, exploring the ways of painting that feel right to you. As you develop your skills, you'll notice that your techniques will become refined into your own unique method of creating art. 

    How to identify and train the skill that matters most

    Date- 2016-06-11 10:46:12

    The more people talk about the skills gap, the more I realize it’s a problem employers, and not candidates are going to have to fix. Sure, there’s the issue of candidates not seeking and learning the skills required of some of the world’s most high-paying jobs, and schools may need to focus on showing students how learning a trade can help them out in the long run. But if candidates aren’t interested, they won’t learn, and employers will be the ones who suffer. The candidates will find somewhere else to work — we’re in a candidate driven market, after all. But if we attain better hires, we’re going to have to focus on things outside of learned skills. My recommendation? Problem-solving.

    Problem-Solving: The Hardest Soft Skill to Find

    Employers are realizing schools aren’t producing the candidates they need, and are adapting accordingly. Rather than focus purely on skills that make resumes look good, 77% of employers are now looking for candidates with “soft skills,” and 16% of employers consider them more crucial than hard skills. Soft skills are those you can’t easily learn on the job: communication, ethic and of course, problem-solving.

    But while they may be looking, employers are coming up short on these kinds of candidates as much as they are those with the hardest of skills. A 2013 survey of the St. Louis workforce recently found candidates came up short with regards to the three skills I mentioned earlier. When candidates lack these skills, on the job training becomes much more difficult, and employers know this. It’s why they’re looking so hard, and the reason they’re coming up short is because they’re screening for problem-solving effectively, and not encouraging the kind of training employees need to improve at this crucial skill.

    Why Problem-Solving Matters

    Why is this soft skill so important? Because proper problem-solving skills will help employees learn all the hard skills they’ll need on the job, and help them thrive in whatever environment they may be working in. Once a problem-solving ethic kicks in, employees are less likely to have to ask questions about the work they’re doing, as they’ll be more inclined to look for their own solutions to the various problem they’ll encounter. As they solve more problems and continue learning, they’ll eventually become the self-sufficient and knowledgeble employees everyone is looking for.

    Candidates know this as well, and are attempting to learn these skills as they look for jobs. Tim Murphy, founder of job-search company ApplyMate, catalogs his experience in learning to problem solve in order to get better jobs:

    “Like any other highly valued skill set, a can-do attitude requires practice, practice, practice. When preparing for different government jobs, I knew I’d face a lot of problem-solving or puzzle questions, and my early attempts at these challenges did not go well . . .  I needed work. So I tried as many sample questions as I could and bought puzzle and mental exercise books like How Would You Move Mt. Fuji? Most of these questions deal more with how to react to and work through the problem at hand, so they’re great practice even if you don’t get many of the answers.”

    Solving the Problem-Solving Problem

    After reading this far, you may have realized that your application or training process lacks a way to find these problem-solving candidates, or train those who may be lagging behind to find better solutions to their problems. The good news here is that as long as you’re willing to put in some work, these failings are rather easy to fix.

    First, screening. How do you know if a candidate with a strong resume has the problem-solving knack to cut it at your company? You test them. First, develop a test that tackles some of the real problems people at your company will face. For example, global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company developed a test for their employees based on the computation, data analysis and logical thinking required of their best workers. The test asks candidates a number of questions about real problems employees have, and if they can’t pass the test, they don’t get an interview. It may take some time to develop a test that takes into account all of the skills required of working at your own company, but the time spent will be worth it once you find and hire employees whom you won’t need to babysit.

    Second, training. If you’re already saddled with employees who can’t seem to think for themselves and come to you several times per day with small questions, the best bet may not be to fire them, but to teach them to fish (as the old adage goes). When employers offer training with more personal coaching focusing on problem-solving and offering direct feedback on said training, employers may see a performance boost of up to 88% per employee.

    Problem solving isn’t a cure-all. If a worker or candidate doesn’t make the cut and doesn’t seem to respond to targeted coaching or screening, the best bet may just be to cut them loose. However, in a market in dire need of soft skills, extra effort spent on finding candidates who can problem-solve or instilling its values on those who may not have, may just be worth it.

    25 oil painting techniques you should master

    Date- 2016-06-11 12:45:28

    Oil painting is the process of painting with pigments bound in oil.  Oil paints can be made by the artist or purchased at art supplies stores.  The common oils used in oil paints are linseed oil, poppyseed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil.  Different oils allow for different drying times and if the paints contain resin, you will get a glossy finish.  Oil paints are prized among artists because the longer drying times allow the artist to manipulate the paint at a later time.  Before you get started with the 25 oil painting techniques, learn to unleash your art creativity by finding and developing your own personal creativity and visual expression according to your strengths and interests.

    25 Oil painting techniques you should master

    1) Blocking color.  Block in color with diluted brush strokes by following the outlines of an object.  This allows you to define the edges of the object without using the thicker paint.  The key is to outline the edges of the object with the same colors that will be used inside of it.

    2) Instant background.  You can use a painted background as the base of the painting.  Use diluted paint applied in small strokes.  Sketch or draw over this base color for an instant background.

    3) Transparency. When showing the transparency of an object in the painting, apply opaque colors over the top of transparent colors.

    4) Using layers.  Oil painting allows the artist to completely paint over and completely cover other paint layers as long as they are dry.  If you plan on using multiple layers, start out with thinner layers of paint in lighter colors.  Slowly make your way toward thicker layers and darker colors.

    5) Intensify colors.  Dilute the paint to various stages to create contrast that will intensify the colors.  Different densities of the same color can be used to better define the form.  When using this technique, leave the background color for last.  The diluted surface of the background contrasts with the denser surface of the object.

    6) Contrasting colors.  Contrast the colors in your piece to create a three-dimensional feeling.

    7) White paint.  In monochromatic subjects you can add volume and relief by emphasizing the white tones.  To do this, apply white paint thickly over the base color.  Do not over brush the white paint into the object.  The brush marks and shades should be easy to see.

    8) Chiaroscuro.  Chiaroscuro is one of the oldest oil painting techniques for bringing volume to an object.  It focuses on the movement of light across the surface of the object through light and dark contrasting.  When using this technique, shadows should be completely black and it is best to use a neutral background color.  

    9) Value of brush strokes.  Brush strokes can also define the volume and shape of an object.  Use your brush like you would a pencil.  Apply different colors of paint like you would with colored pencils.

    10) Charcoal lines.  Use charcoal lines behind an object to reinforce it’s shape and give it dimension.

    11) Saturated color.  Using saturated color is the most direct way to add form and volume.  To use this technique, saturate the color as much as possible in areas of the object that are not illuminated.

    12) Brush stroke size.  Different sizes of brush strokes can be used to define and differentiate planes, masses, objects and different areas of the painting.  Try experimenting with longer brush strokes, short jabs, and even tiny dots.  In general, smaller brush strokes will represent objects closer in the foreground.

    13) Paint mixture irregularities.  Add a textual effect to your painting by leaving streaks of color in your paint mixture.  These irregularities can add interest to your piece.

    14) Foliage.  When painting foliage, your brush strokes can represent leaves.  Vary the tones of the leaves by adding more or less diluted paint.  

    15) Pointillism.  For an Impressionist look to your painting, try using this technique of pointillism.  This consists of dabbing small quantities of paint systematically across the entire canvas to achieve a uniform and continuous texture.

    16) Informal brush strokes.  Try using informal brush strokes that do not follow a pattern and run in different directions.  These strokes should cover the canvas in fluid bunches of color.  This technique can be used with both thick and diluted paint.

    17) Nonrepresentational brush strokes.  Use a brush stroke free of representational obligations.  This means the strokes can go outside of the lines of the object being defined.  The strokes will create both the drawing and the color at the same time.

    18) Soft texture.  Create a soft feeling in your object with blurred and irregular brush strokes.  Try rubbing the brush against the support to get a fluffy texture.

    19) Transparent glass.  To suggest the consistency of crystal or transparent glass, keep your paint color pure and add strategic contrast.  Add the dark contrasting colors last to suggest the density.

    20) Metal.  To create the effect of shiny metal, you must contrast black against white.  Paint the darkest areas of the object with diluted black and then apply some diluted white along the black brushstrokes to blend.  Apply touches of pure white last to highlight the reflections on the metal.

    21) Monochromatic.  Try creating a monochrome painting.  Pick a color based on the wide variety of shades it can make.  The different intensities of the color will be determined by the dilution of the paint.

    22) Cool colors.  Try working with only cool colors like that greens, grays, and blues.  Use just a little bit of warm colors to create a counterpoint in the piece.

    23) Complementary colors.  The main complementary colors are yellow and violet, blue and orange, and red and green.  When these colors are mixed they create gray but when they are next to each other, they create a stark contrast.  Consider using complementary colors in your work.

    24) Skin.  Human skin does not have a specific color.  Artist use combinations and different harmonies of colors to create human flesh.  Try using mostly warmer colors with a touch of cool colors to achieve this look.

    25) Landscape shadows.  When painting shadows in landscapes, use cool colors like blues, violets, purples, and grays.

    10 most inspiring hollywood dialogues

    Date- 2016-06-11 12:24:16

    Have you been a Hollywood fan?

    I have been one since childhood. Among my lists of favourite movies & scenes & actors, here’s one of my favorite 10 most inspiring Hollywood dialogues. These inspiring Hollywood dialogues never fail to bring a reassuring confidence, that it is all going to be okay! Some of them are as old as hills. But, effective still. Read on:

     

    1. Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period. – Chris Gardner, from The Pursuit of Happyness

    If needed, become selectively deaf. Just believe in yourself and Rise & Shine until the lambs become lions. The moment you stop to seek validation for your dreams from others, you definitely start on the road to peril. Want to do something? Just go and bloody do it!

    2. You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours. White Queen, from Alice in Wonderland

    Too many people I see – living their lives trying to please others. Eventually, they forget what makes them happy. Don’t ever let that happen to yourself. There is a difference between trying to make someone happy & trying to please them. A thin, intricate line. Identify it. And try not to cross it.Choose the way you want to live. And then just go live it in the way you deem fit.

    3. After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are. – from Shrek

    I have been called so many names ever since I started my journey, I have actually forgotten them (except for a few really good and funny ones). People call you names because of their own insecurities. If you are calling someone with weird names because they are different – it is your insecurity. Think about it.And then, learn to overlook. When something isn’t about you – why waste time on it? Choose where your electricity will go! Your own goals & dreams or someone else’s frivolous name calling which probably won’t matter 5 years hence?

    4. Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss. – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    I love these words. Because it reminds me of the countless interactions with my audiences where they talk about missed opportunities and what it has done to their lives. All of us have tremendous potential – let me tell you. The difference between successful & non-successful people is – the way we pick up opportunities.Another secret, my dear reader, is the fact that to be able to grab onto an opportunity you need to be attentive to open the door when it comes knocking. If you are too busy on your Facebooks, Whatsapps, Blackberrys, Gtalks, Hangouts etc.- baby the nice old awesome opportunity has many takers!

    5. To find something, anything, a great truth or a lost pair of glasses, you must first believe there will be some advantage in finding it. All the King’s Men

    I once did a TEDx which had a beautiful topic – ‘The Purpose of Purpose’. Why do we do what we do? That ‘Why’ is very important. The answer to these three letters can give you an immense sense of direction & also – what not to do. Be it a humongous step in life or something as simple as going for a movie.Find your purpose & decide whether it is going to take you in the same direction as your goals. If not – what’s the point?

    6. “Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.” Frank Abagnale Sr, Catch Me If You Can (2002)

    Adversities have a way of telling you who you really are. There is no point in being the first mouse. Try being the second one. What is the worst case scenario? You won’t make it / come out alive? If you don’t try – it is anyway going to happen. The odds of making it are much higher if you decide to give it a shot!

    7. “There is no such thing as a no sale call. A sale is made on every call you make. Either you sell the client some stock or he sells you a reason he can’t. Either way a sale is made, the only question is who is gonna close? You or him? Now be relentless, that’s it, I’m done.” Jim Young, Boiler Room (2000)

    It is not just a lesson in sales. I think it is a lesson in everything. Are you relentless enough to not let go if you believe in yourself / your cause / your dream? Are you relentless enough to not stop until the Nos becomes Yeses? Do you have it in you to not let anyone else convince you that you can’t do it?

    8. Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear. -The Princess Diaries

    I think it is good to be afraid. It means you have things at stake. And those eventually become your motivation. And the most beautiful part is – that fear also tells you about the joy that waits at the other end of the tunnel.So be afraid. But also understand why it is important to take that step anyway. And then muster the courage to see the light at the end of the tunnel and not just the darkness of the tunnel.

    9. Fate! There is such a thing as fate, but it only takes you so far. Then it’s up to you to make it happen. Can’t Hardly Wait

    I absolutely love this one. It is such a long debate. Should you believe in fate or your own ability? I say – why not both?Fate will bring you to an oasis in the middle of the desert. But, only your own ability will help you take out water from that well. Fate brings you opportunities. Ability ensures you make the most of them.

    10. “You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions.  Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not.  ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ ‘Has your life brought joy to others?’” The Bucket List

    If you haven’t seen this movie yet, please do! It is a wonderful, witty, awesome movie. And these lines – sum up human life in entirety. Adding value to the lives of others and finding joy in doing it.Try if you haven’t.

    Our biggest mistake: talent selection instead of talent identification

    Date- 2016-06-10 11:26:32

    Many youth sports coaches claim to be great talent identifiers, and point to the results of their 11 year all star team as proof. Yet they are not talent identifiers. They are talent selectors. The difference could not be more striking, or more damaging to our country’s future talent pool in many sports.

    Talent selection is the culling of players with the current ability to participate and be successful in events taking place in the near future. Talent identification, on the other hand, is the prediction of future performance based upon an evaluation of current physical, technical, tactical and psychological qualities. Talent selection is pretty simple; talent identification is an art. One yields great results today; the other builds elite athletes and winning teams for the future.

    Our current win at all costs youth sports culture promotes talent selection. When a coach is pressured to win by parents or a club, or when he or she feels the need to win to serve their own ego, that coach becomes a talent selector. When you are focused on talent selection, you are picking athletes to help you win now, and cutting ones that will not. You are looking at current athleticism, technical ability, and traits to help achieve short term success. You naturally select the biggest, strongest and fastest young athletes, and play them extensive minutes. You limit playing time for the kids who are not up to snuff, and tell them they need to work harder, get tougher, etc., if they want to play more. You yell at them because they cannot get to the ball quick enough, or cannot shoot well enough to score. You tell them that this type of pressure is what they will face when they are older, so they better get used to it now.

    Then, according to the latest statistics, 70% of them quit organized sports by the age of 13!

    On the other hand, talent identifiers are searching for young players who may not be elite athletes yet, but possess the physical and psychological attributes to eventually become one. Perhaps they have not yet grown, or been exposed to high level coaching. Perhaps they are not as skillful yet, but show a high level of coachability, sensitivity to training, and the motivation to learn. Identifying talent requires the skill to weigh all the physical, physiological, psychological, and technical components of an athlete, as well as a measure of “gut instinct” of which kid has what it takes to become elite, and which kid does not.

    Talent identification also takes a long term approach to player selection and development, and focuses on training large numbers of players, instead of cutting all but the elite ones. It recognizes that many factors affect whether a kid will make it or not, but rarely are childhood results the main factor.

    In a fascinating study on junior tennis players from 1994 through 2002, Piotr Unierzyski evaluated 1000 players age 12-13 in 50 different countries, a pool that included future stars Roger Federer, Kim Clisters, and others. His study found that of all these players, the ones who eventually made it into the Top 100 Professional Rakings were:

    • 3-4 months younger than the mean age for their group
    • Slimmer and less powerful than their age group
    • Usually faster and more agile than average
    • They played less than the average number of matches that the top players did
    • Their average practice hours per week were 2-4 hours less than the elite players in their age group
    • Their parents were supportive, but not overly involved

    Let’s extrapolate this data onto the current elite youth athlete in the United States. Does a player who is young for his or her age, thinner and weaker, practices and plays less than their peers, and has parents who are not overly involved sound like today’s  U11 All Star? Not that I have seen. Now, I know that is quite an over simplification, but do you get my point here?

    American youth sports are far too often focused on talent selection, and not talent identification. We are committed to winning now, to getting on ESPN, or achieving some hypothetical pre-pubescent national ranking. Yes, some team sport clubs have B and C teams and develop large numbers of players. Others have those same B and C teams, and players are often jettisoned there with less experienced coaches, less committed teammates, and an overall lesser experience. We say we are developing them for the future, but all too often we are using them to balance the budget. We select the current talent that will help us win now, because if we do not, the club down the road will grab them and win, and our best players will leave. We are not identifying and developing the kids who are most likely to become elite competitors after puberty. We are selecting the ones who already are elite, but often do not have the characteristics needed for long term elite performance.

    This is why the emphasis on winning prior to high school is destroying youth sports. This is why nations with 1/100th of our population can compete with us on a world stage in many sports. They actually identify and develop future talent, instead of selection based upon current results. Our wealth and sheer numbers allow us to succeed internationally, but other nations are slowly but surely closing the gap in nearly every sport because quite frankly, they identify and develop talent far better than we do.

    How do we fix this? Here are a few simple thoughts for youth sports that to be honest, should not be that hard to implement:

    1. Stop cutting players at young ages, and develop large numbers of players instead of just the elite ones. I recently read that Sweden, for example, produces more NHL players per capita than any other country, and they do not cut players till age 17. Hmmm.
    2. Focus on developing all players at the youngest ages, with particular attention given to helping the less skilled ones catch up technically to the stronger ones. Thus, when they finish their growth spurt, we have a much larger pool of adequately skilled individuals to choose from, instead of just the kids who happened to have facial hair at 12 but stopped growing at 13.
    3. Put an end to the win at all costs nature of pre-pubescent sports, especially things like state and national championships prior to middle or high school, and televising events like the Little League World Series (which has run since 1946 and produced a whopping 27 Major League Players in that time). Ok, admittedly, this one might be tough to implement!
    4. Better educate our coaches to understand the difference between selecting and identifying talent, and then teach and encourage them to develop it rather than try and win with it immediately.

    This is just a start, but unless we start making some drastic changes to our youth sports system, we will see smaller nations continuing to close the gap, and eventually surpass the United States in many sports. We are not elite in soccer yet because of the culture. We are falling behind in baseball because of it. Even in basketball, the gap has been significantly reduced. Why? Because our competitors are not relying on a player development system that is often based upon a large population and dumb luck.

    The best part about making all these changes? Our clubs and schools will have larger numbers of skilled athletes to choose from, as well as additional healthier and well rounded kids. We will have families who are less stressed both financially and anxiety wise, because their kids can just be kids again, and they don’t feel pressured to have their 10 year olds travel 2000 miles to play a game. We will allow coaches to actually coach, and develop both better people and better athletes.

    Abundant skilled players? Lower costs? Less time devoted to youth sports and more to family and school? More success for our national teams and elite individual athletes?

    These are changes worth making.

    Dynamic game preparation

    Date- 2016-06-10 01:38:27

    Top sports coaches, mental coaches and sports psychologists will often talk about the importance of processes. Process has become a bit of a buzz word in sport, however the understanding of what it actually means and the detail and thinking linked to processes varies greatly from sport to sport and individual to individual. There are many categories of sports process: How I train, How I recover, How I learn, How I prepare for match day, How I play the game, and How I handle key playing moments in the game are all examples of some common sports processes. This article is focused on How I prepare for match day.

    I have written about having a Performance Recipe before, however that article was based on looking backwards to extract a recipe and missed out the steps to dynamically adjust it for future challenges. I recommend reading the previous article as well as this one to deepen your understanding of game preparation with a mental focus.

    This article is about how to fine-tune an individual’s preparation for a cricket game, however this same strategy could be used for rugby, hockey, football, golf, swimming, in fact any other sport.  The principles are the same.

    Why do we need processes to prepare for a game?

    The short answer is that we want to give ourselves the best possible chance to perform at our best.  Peak performance is a lot like cooking. Even a master chef needs to have all the right ingredients to cook well, no matter how many years of cooking he or she has, if that chef forgets to put egg into a cake mixture as an example, it will flop! (20 years of experience and massive cooking talent won’t change that.)

    Ideally every athlete has a set list of processes (or ingredients if you like) that they can follow to be ready to perform at their best. If an athlete’s processes are effective then it supports the athlete “letting go” so they can commit to the moment and perform with a quiet mind – it supports them finding their zone.  Many junior athletes and some senior athletes follow these processes unconsciously, I recommend doing the exercise below which include making those processes conscious again to ensure that every angle is covered. Another added level of difficulty is that individuals in a team sport will have a team warm-up that may cover only a certain % of what an individual may need. That individual will still need to find or make the time to follow the rest of their recipe.

    Where the cooking metaphor doesn’t fit is that there are another 2 levels of complexity that athletes have to deal with when following their peak performance recipe.  The individual athlete himself will be physically, emotionally and mentally different from week to week of competition.  Tight muscles in legs, a change from batting at 2 to batting at 5 for the first time which brings some tension, or a run of poor results are three examples of how even if the same General Recipe is followed, the outcome might not be the same as the internal challenges are not dealt with directly. The internal challenges are dynamic, they change from match to match, and as such adjustments may need to be made, with perhaps a step added or lengthened to follow the same performance recipe.

    Secondly the opposition itself is dynamic, one week you play against the best opposition around, the second week you play against opponents who are great at spin and the third week you play at a venue where you have bad memories. So in this way the external challenges are also dynamic and so adjustments may need to be made to the recipe to manage those challenges.


    So high quality game preparation = Following your General Recipe for peak performance + internal challenges adjustments + external challenges adjustments.

    If you have more than one distinct role to play it may mean that your recipe and steps need to be customised for each role. (e.g. batting, bowling, fielding)  There is a high likelihood that your process would be similar with some specific extra processes added per discipline.

    What I have discovered more recently whilst talking to cricketers is that many would have highly detailed Outside Focused processes for a game (clean my kit the night before, hit 40 balls on the day, stretch body dynamically after team stretch, sit alone before batting, etc) however they wouldn’t have any or they would have very vague Inside Focused processes. I would hear things like, I enjoy listening to music – and when I asked, “So what artist/band and what is the effect you want that music to have on you?” There often was lack of a purposeful answer, where what I was hoping for was something like, “I know I need 10 mins of Enya on a normal day and 15 mins if I am feeling stressed to get back to my calm and happy space.”  Music as a process can be very useful, however it normally wouldn’t be as effective as accurate self-coaching tools and methods; of which there are many.

    Other examples of Inside Focused processes would be – what I do to get into a happy mental space?  How do I quieten or empty my mind? How do I let go of any outside stressors or negativity to focus 100% on my performance and stay in the now? How do I effectively and directly deal with the nerves I suspect is going to impact my performance? How do I enhance my belief in myself and my gameplan? How do I stick to my processes and trust them even when under extreme pressure?

    What I have also discovered is that cricketers and athletes in general will often try to use anOutside Focused process to solve an internal challenge.  For example, as a cricketer I am feeling nervous before a knock-out game so I will go hit 500 extra balls to feel better instead of using some self-coaching techniques to get to the heart of the nerves and either “solve it” or release the extra energy that is not needed.

    Method: Phase 1: Your General Recipe.

    1. Work out all the Outside Focused processes you use before you play well. Review what you did for several good performance and then work out what is common and useful. If you don’t have a specific list of Outside Focused processes start experimenting with what you want to get from them.  Eg as a bowler you may want to feel confident in your run up, happy with where you place your leading foot when bowling and feel your body is loose enough to deliver accurately from ball one. Great. Now what do you need to do on any given match day (or the day before) to get what you want. If you don’t know what a particular process provides for you, reflect on the question, “What does doing X – give me?”  or “What does hitting 30 balls with throw downs give me before I bat?”  Be careful of answering this in a simple/high level way with words like confidence, or feeling good, see if there is more detail there for you. Its important to know both what your specific proceses are and what you want to achieve or receive by doing them.
    2. Work out the Inside Focus processes that you do and what they give you, or work out what Internal Focused processes you need to discover/find/experiment with based on what you want. As an example of an Inside Focus: I listen to Drake and that helps me feel connected, slightly aggressive and energized. If you don’t have any purposeful Inside Focused Processes think about What you want to feel on the inside and work backwards. As an example I want to feel calm, quiet in my mind, happy and feel I can bat with freedom – great, now what Inside Focus Processes can I learn about research or discover that will give me with that end result? In Raising Talent I provide a series of tools that can assist with Inside Focused Processes – there are many other resources out there, its well worth researching and gaining expertise in this space. Its important to know both what your specific proceses are and what you want to achieve or receive by doing them.

    Now that you have worked out your General Recipe, you need to prepare for each individual game, that is where the internal and external challenges come in – what adjustments do you need to make? (If any?)

    Phase 2 adjustments for my next game (if any are needed)

    1. For my next game what are the internal challenges that I can identify – and whatsolutions can I come up with for each and every challenge?  It may be that my existing process are effective and wide-ranging enough that I don’t need to adjust anything for many of my challenges. If I do have to add or adjust something, what would that be? The solution also may be as simple as letting go worrying that my body is not 100%. Or letting go of worrying about being less confident batting at 6 then 5 because I haven’t made as many runs at 6 yet.
    2. For my next game what are the external challenges that I can identify and whatsolutions can I come up with for each and every challenge?  If I do have to add or adjust something, as my existing process doesnt prepare me well enough for that challlenge, what would that be? The solution also may be as simple as letting go my fears, or extra nerves and using a self-coaching technique to do that.

    To help you practice this technique see if you write down between 5 and 10 challenges you may face in your next game. Then work out solutions for each one of the challenges you have found, and check to see if the solutions you have identified are already part of your process. If they are great – you can take more confidence into the game. If not then work out how the solutions can be included into your process.  Practice doing this for several games.

     

    If you find that you have finished preparing for a game and you have no external challenges, than it is more then likely that your biggest challenge for the game is eithercomplacency or arrogance.  Either is a performance killer.  What solutions can you find to make sure that whoever you play, your preparation is about your standards and your purpose and not about them?

    It may be the case that you can’t train for a week due to rain yet still need to be ready to be your best for an important game. If this happen work backwards from the “What you Want” column to create Plan B. Ask yourself the question, what else can I do that is within my power to give me what I am looking for in the “What you want” column.

    As you develop your self-awareness and experiment you will be getting a better and betterGeneral Recipe.  You will also get more skilled at brainstorming and analysis to identify the challenges you may face. Each game is unique and so knowing yourself well and thinking through many possible game scenarios will be important. When you find and hone your solutions for your challenges and include them in your process you will take your game to the next level.

    10 things smart business people do

    Date- 2016-06-10 01:02:18

    Smart business people:

    1. Understand that the way to serve customers in an exemplary way is to serve employees in the same manner. If dazzling service doesn’t happen on the inside it’s unlikely to happen on the outside.
    1. Have a strategic game plan for their organization and use it as THE context for all tactical activity. Chasing tactics that don’t have direct line of sight to strategy is a characteristic of non-performing organizations.
    1. Don’t over-analyze everything. The degree of study depends on the risk associated with the decision to be made. They don’t get mesmerized with the tools of analysis; they use them appropriate to the level and risk inherent in the decision to be made.
    1. Don’t look for perfection. The quest for the perfect solution (which doesn’t exist in any event) only takes valuable time away from execution. They understand that success is a function of doing lots of imperfect stuff fast.
    1. Are known champions of change which gives them currency in the organization and the ability to garner resources to get things done.
    1. Are “mindless” about execution. They are comfortable with loosening up on the plan; get it “just about right”, and bear down and focus on execution. They understand that performance depends on how well they execute, not on the efficacy of the plan.
    1. Spend copious amounts of time with the frontline; “on the coal face” where customer meets company. Learning what’s really going on. Make meaningful change. They don’t have an ivory tower mentality.
    1. Are contrarian by nature. They believe that the source of opportunity lies not in copying what others are doing, but rather charting a course that no one else is on. They are “180 degree thinkers”.
    1. Place a priority on meeting with customers regularly. There is no substitute for getting feedback on performance directly from a customer. They make it a priority and schedule it weekly on their calendar.
    1. Are relentless and voracious learners. Standing still intellectually isn’t an option in a world changing every instant. Value added to the organization depends on business people “keeping up”. They believe staying ahead requires learning leadership.

    The smart generation of business people know that success doesn’t come from an academic pedigree.

    Smart business people know that brilliant performance is the result of practicing the fundamentals of being different, staying close to customers, serving employees and executing strategy in the trenches.

    Are you one of the smart business people?

    Overcoming the fear of feedback

    Date- 2016-06-10 12:48:24

    Mary considers herself to be a good manager. Whenever one of her employee’s is struggling with an assignment she swoops in to help them put things into order and give pointers. Her company is now introducing a new 360-degree performance management system based on continuous feedback and, as a manager, she’s been encouraged to lead the transition by asking for feedback from her team first. She’s excited about this new change because she thinks it’ll help a few of her team members to open up more and resolve conflicts amongst each other.

    However, when she receives her feedback, she’s surprised to find that several people said she needed to let go more and allow people to work out assignments in their own way. One person even used the term ‘micromanaging’. Even though she’s supposed to be setting an example, her first reaction is to get angry. She sets aside a lot of time to help her employees solve problems and only gets criticism in return. She’s now supposed to act on the feedback she receives in order to encourage employees to do the same, but she’s still feeling betrayed.

    Most people have difficulties receiving feedback well. For others, the only thing worse than receiving constructive feedback is giving it. When given correctly, feedback is not meant to harm or criticize people, but meant as a way to improve. Even if we know feedback is good for us, what’s holding you back from accepting and sharing it with others? The answers might all be in your head.

    What are the psychological factors that make us afraid of feedback?

    The most common answer is our body’s natural negativity bias. Prominent psychologists andneurobiologists have found that our brains are hardwired to react to negative stimuli faster. This was originally necessary for our survival. Sensing an attack would trigger our body’s natural fight or flight mode, increasing the amount of hormones released to the bloodstream, elevating reaction time and heightening our emotions. The experiences that trigger these reactions become etched into our brain so that we can react to dangerous situations faster. This is why we tend to remember negative experiences more than positive ones.

    However, in an office setting our negativity bias and flight or flight reaction can actually work against us. Even when receiving mostly positive feedback, it tends to be the constructive feedback that we recall most acutely. Though feedback doesn’t constitute a physical attack, in their separate research Psychologist Peter Gray and Management Professor Neal Ashkanasy both explain that criticism can signal a sense of exclusion. In hunter-gatherer societies people were dependent on the group for survival. For this reason, constructive feedback can sometimes trigger our fear of exclusion from the group.

    Is fear of giving feedback more about yourself than others?

    In fact, this is also relevant to giving feedback. A study by Dr. Carla Jefferies of the University of Southern Queensland discovered that a failure to give constructive feedback may actually be more about protecting ourselves than others. In her experiment, participants were told to give feedback on an essay either face to face, anonymously or to give feedback that would not be shared with the author.

    She found that participants with lower self-esteem gave more positive feedback face to face and more critical feedback in the other two situations. People with high self-esteem gave the same feedback in all situations. According to a researcher on her team, “If one accepts that people with relatively low self-esteem are expected to place greater emphasis on wanting to be perceived as likeable or attractive to others, then this lends support for the self-protection motive.”

    Supporting this research, a study conducted by leadership development consultancyZenger/Folkman found that 74% of employees who received constructive feedback already knew there was a problem. This shows that employees aren’t necessarily blind to the things they need to improve, they just either aren’t sure how to improve or aren’t fully aware of the impact on the rest of the team. In fact, in their previous research, they found that a majority of employees actually want constructive feedback.

    However, the caveat is that people don’t want to receive top down instructions on what to do. In their study, they also found that the more managers carefully listened to their employee’s point of view before giving feedback, the more honest and trustworthy their feedback was perceived. Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman suggest that the best way to give constructive feedback is to first give the other person the chance to explain the situation and what they think went wrong. Before immediately going into feedback, first allow them to formulate their own plan of action. If you listen carefully up to this point, when you give your own feedback it is much more likely to be well received. Finally, offer to check in the following week so that you can lend further advice if needed, without seeming overbearing. For more information on how to give constructive feedback seehere. So what are we still so afraid of?

    Changing your mindset

    Stanford Professor Carol Dweck’s studies into what she terms ‘fixed and growth mindsets’ also provide valuable insights into this fear. According to her research, people with fixed mindsets view their skills as constant personal traits, while people with growth mindsets view their skills as malleable abilities which can be improved. For example, children who have been praised for being smart throughout their lives may face difficulties improving after receiving a bad grade on an exam. However, children who have been praised for getting good grades based on their hard work and dedication are more likely to see a bad grade as an opportunity to learn more.

    When we associate abilities with a part of our identity, receiving constructive criticism can feel more like a personal attack. People with growth mindsets, on the other hand, are more likely to take risks and overcome obstacles by seeing failure as a signal to try harder, rather than time to give up.

    The good news is that we are not naturally divided into fixed and growth mindsets. Developing a growth mindset towards feedback is possible. According to Dweck, the first step is recognizing your fixed mindset “voice”. When you start placing blame on others for the feedback you receive, this is your fixed mindset speaking. Once you recognize this voice you can begin counteracting it and responding with a growth mindset. See Dweck’s TEDTalk, ‘The power of believing that you can improve’, for more inspiration.

    Overcoming fear of feedback through habit

    An important part of overcoming your fear is creating a feedback habit. In Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Charles Duhigg’s book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, he describes how neuroscientists and psychologists discovered the impact of habits on rewiring the brain towards certain behaviors. Marketers and CEOs have used the key elements of creating a habit – cue, routine and reward – to induce certain behaviors in consumers and employees. Duhigg contends that by creating a routine and reward system triggered by certain cues, we can rewire our brain to create new habits and behaviors.

    If you want to start exercising more, leaving your running clothes next to your bed will trigger a cue to go for a run in the morning. If you get into the routine of going for a run every morning your body gets used to the routine. The incentive can be a reward, such as having a big breakfast when you get home. Eventually, the habit kicks in and your body will become accustomed to going for a run when you wake up, even if you forget to leave your running clothes out or don’t have time for an elaborate breakfast.

    One example he gives is Starbuck’s success in teaching employees how to navigate difficult situations with customers. In Duhigg’s book he introduces Travis, a manager of two successful Starbucks locations, who attributes his professional success to Starbuck’s lifeskills training program. In his previous jobs, Travis had difficulties dealing with angry customers. Rather than dealing with the situation calmly, he would be overcome with emotion and argue back, making it difficult to hold down a steady job. When he began working as a barista at Starbucks he entered into its education training program.

    The company’s main focus is providing great customer service, and it found that the best way to do this was to ensure its workers received training on life skills such as managing emotions, how to stay organized and focused and, most importantly for Travis, willpower. Through these trainings Travis was able to master his emotions by creating go to habits for different situations that could arise at work. For example, the LATTE method is used to deal with difficult customers:

    Listen to the customer

    Acknowledge the problem

    Take problem-solving action

    Thank them

    Explain why the problem occurred

    The program encourages employees to imagine difficult situations with customers, decide how they would react in advance and practice through role play. By having a set routine in place, Travis was able to overcome his emotional response to angry customers. As soon as he receives the cue, a complaining customer, he dives into his routine allowing him to stay level headed. Since instituting this program, Starbuck’s revenue increased by $1 billion. See Duhigg’s thought-provoking TEDTalk detailing more insights from his book.

    Creating a feedback habit

    You can also use this method to create a feedback habit in your company. Amongst our clients we’ve observed that as employees share more and more feedback through Impraise, they begin to develop feedback behaviors. As the habit forms, people become more comfortable expressing feedback face-to-face. In our biggest client company, a major hotel booking platform, we’ve seen this lead to an increase in the exchange of unsolicited feedback and better professional development conversations.

    Utilizing their employees’ affinity for games, a gaming company we work with has created a reward system in which people vote for the best feedback they were given, resulting in a bonus for the top contributor.

    When creating your own feedback habit keep in mind these three elements to habit forming. For example, your steps could be:

    Cue – Receiving a feedback notification from a colleague

    Routine

    1. Analyze the feedback,
    2. Ask questions to better understand
    3. Thank them
    4. Strategize ways to improve based on your feedback
    5. Set goals for yourself based on these strategies

    Reward – Using the feedback to reach the professional goals you’ve set for yourself

    To put this into context we’ll go back to Mary, the manager who just received surprising constructive feedback from her employees. When her thoughts of betrayal and exclusion start to set in, she should recognize her fixed mindset voice and respond: “It’s not that my employees are ungrateful for my help, they just want more opportunities to grow professionally.”

    Following these steps, after receiving her cue, feedback notifications on her real-time feedback platform, Mary should automatically read through them and write down keywords and patterns she sees. She should then respond to her feedback in order to fill in the gaps: “What can I do to better support you when you reach an obstacle?” Finish by thanking them for their feedback.

    Based on their answers, it’s time to come up with strategies for improvement. Maybe her employees would like her to first ask if they need her help. When they do ask for help, she can make sure to adjust her language and tone, so that she’s sure to provide suggestions rather than instructions. She should also consider offering individuals opportunities to take on more responsibilities. For example, suggesting that an employee take the lead on a new project. Another option is committing to having more regular one-on-ones with her employees, so she can check in and offer her assistance when needed.

    Finally, Mary can set her professional goals around this feedback: “Becoming a better leader by providing more autonomy to my employees”. Mary should then check in from time to time and ask her employees for feedback on her management style and what she could do to more effectively reach her goals.

    Fit or lead!

    Date- 2016-06-10 12:33:55

    Many leaders don’t lead at all, they flit from this to that, from one crisis to another, from one priority to another.

    They don’t land on anything.

    They don’t spend too long on any one issue because they want to avoid being pinned down for an opinion or having to make a decision. As long as they are on the move, they can “be forgiven” for not clearly understanding an issue enough to have an informed view on it.

    They are thinkers who are more comfortable with the rarefied air up high than the details where the devil lives. They tend to be more comfortable with the theory of something rather than practical application; how something sounds trumps whether it actually works.

    Those who flit, chase. They are enthralled with busyness. They define the value they contribute by the hours they put in, by the number of calories they burn.

    They run toward whatever their boss or executives say is important; they run away from critical issues that prevent front-line people from doing their jobs better. They like the comfort of elegant living rather than the messiness of what goes on in the trenches.

    They give multiple-choice directions to others; a range of potential alternatives rather than a clear path to follow. Ever intent on avoiding personal risk, these leaders never want to make the call.

    They live somewhere between the extremes of commanding and controlling people and serving them. They lack the conviction to both command the troops to go in a specific direction and the “How can I help?” desire to search for and solve the problems employees face every day.

    They go missing in action regularly. Business lunches with colleagues, attending conferences and breakfast meetings account for a significant amount of their away time.

    When a crisis happens, you can count on them to be “in their quiet place,” not wanting to get involved.

    They hate conflict and will do almost anything to avoid it.

    A vice-president of marketing I once reported to had really mastered how to flit. He was a nice enough person, but contributed little in terms of my development as a leader. He provided minimal direction, and always passed my proposals to the president for his opinion before approving me to take action. I liked operating with considerable freedom, but never in a vacuum.

    Do you identify with any of these?

    1. You don’t feel comfortable making decisions on your own; you find ways to share the risk.
    1. You insist on more analysis to support most business proposals brought to you.
    1. You are a “consensus addict” and will insist upon support by the many before moving forward.
    1. You don’t directly answer a question from your boss; you always call in the subject matter expert.
    1. You love to network with people outside your company. You find it easier to honor an external obligation than an internal one.
    1. You avoid doing personal performance evaluations with your employees; you don’t set specific objectives for them either.
    1. You avoid contact with employees in other areas of the company. You are more comfortable on your own turf.
    1. You rarely engage in face-to-face employee communications events unless your boss insists you be there; you send lots of e-mails.
    1. You have a To-Do list with at least 10 items on it.
    1. You are generally not asked for your views on key strategic issues of the organization but people who report to you are.

    If you answered yes to more than a couple of these questions, you may be flitting not leading.

    What muhammad ali, the silver-tongued boxing champion, taught the world

    Date- 2016-06-10 12:27:27

    This is the legend of Cassius Clay”

    A civil right activist, legend and “the greatest”. Muhammad Ali wasn’t just one of the best boxing champions in the world, he was also known for his courage, quick wit and sharp tongue. Muhammad Ali aka Cassius Clay died at the age of 74 on Friday (June 3), after a 32-year battle with Parkinson’s disease.

    Legend has it that at the age of 12, he was fuming over a thief taking his bicycle, and he told the police officer that he was going to ‘whup’ the thief. The officer first told him to learn how to box, thus began the stupendous journey of the legend that is Muhammad Ali.

    While many controversies surround Muhammad Ali, he would always back his talk with action. Today, as we remember this boxing legend, here are the top five things you can learn from this boxing champion:

    1. “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, your hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see” 

    The famous quote used by Ali, was stated when he beat the then world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston the second time in an reported 30-second knockout. These words simply showed how quick Ali was in the ring and holds a great lesson for entrepreneurs, especially. During your entrepreneurial journey, there are times when you have to be quick and look for opportunities to bring on your ‘sting’.

    1. Never back down

    “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’.”

    A controversial legend in every way, Ali was known for his never-say-die and never-back-down attitude. Known to be extremely scrupulous, he even gave up what he called ‘his slave name’ Cassius Clay to take on a new name – Muhammad Ali. He was vocal about racism and is believed to have even thrown his Olympic Gold in the river when he was refused service at a soda fountain due to racism. Ali believed in his rights and stuck to it till the very end.

    1. Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream, a vision”

    In a world where white supremacy was at its peak, Muhammad Ali carved a niche for himself. Apart from fighting in the ring, Ali faced opposition from different classes. While deeply offended and hurt by the racism he faced, he continued on and that can be attributed to his belief in himself and his passion to become a world-famous boxing champion. He believed: “Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.”

    1. “’Impossible’ is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    Ali had to often swim against the tide. When he beat Liston, there was an uproar and people assumed he had cheated. But none of the accusations held ground and people came to understand he indeed was one of the best boxers they had seen. The outspoken Ali always believed that there were times when life doesn’t give you the best circumstances, but if you have passion, desire and vision you can achieve whatever you want in the worst circumstances.

    1. It is never too late to learn new things in life

    While strong in his views and beliefs, Ali was one of the few people in this world who had the power and courage to define the terms of his public reputation. By the age of 22, Ali had become the youngest boxer to take the title from a reigning heavyweight champion. From changing to Islam to later taking on Sufism, Ali did things against the norm and went on to learn new things.
