Organize your fridge.

So how do we adopt their way of organization? Here's the strategy that uses the same

Increase your typing speed.
Learn the correct hand position. To type quickly, you must hold your hands and fingers in a certain position over the keys, and let them return to that position when at rest.[3] In brief, your hands should arch up slightly from the wrists, and your fingers should rest lightly on the “home row”

Learning Styles

Auditory learners often talk to themselves. They also may move their lips and read out loud. They may have difficulty with reading and writing tasks. They often do better talking to a colleague or a tape recorder and hearing what was said.

Visual learners have two sub-channels—linguistic and spatial. Learners who are visual-linguistic like to

The Comma Quiz: Now That You Know All About Commas!

For the last few months, commas have been the main topic on this blog. We all have trouble with commas, which have about 962 rules! Well, it is time for the quiz, but don’t worry. No one but YOU is going to correct it. And it won’t be very difficult. Think of it as one of those Facebook quizzes we all love!
Here are the rules: Add commas where they belong in the following sentences.     Sometimes punctuation will be missing, but it won’t be a comma, so be careful.

Tense About Tense?

English step by step
Tense is one grammar issue that doesn’t generally make us tense—like commas, for example. Most of us just talk or write without thinking too much about tense.  Tense, of course, refers to time and always concerns verbs.  This post begins a short series of posts about tense and its issues.
How many tenses are there in the English language? Many people would say three: past, present, and future. Actually, there are many more than that. But let’s start at the beginning.

Grammar Goofs from People Who Should Know Better!

Several weeks ago I wrote a post about people on TV and their questionable grammar. I mean, these people get paid to speak, so they should do it pretty well — in my opinion. I have been watching  pretty constant election coverage lately, and I have collected the following goofs. Yes, I know it is easy to make a minor mistake when we talk and we all do it. Nonetheless, there are certain things that make us cringe.

Speaking of Spelling . . .

During last week’s Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC, the youngest participant ever, a six-year- old first grader from Texas, correctly spelled inviscate, but was tripped up by bacteriolytic, in which he substituted ana for the 0. Nonetheless, he received a standing ovation from the other contestants. And some first graders are just beginning to learn their letters!
To further illustrate the range of spelling prowess (and not), an article this week reported that these five words are most commonly misspelled by men in online dating profiles:
  • bachelor – It does kind of sound like there should be a t in there. And maybe -er at the end.
  • accommodate – This is a tough one for lots

Yay or Nay? The Singular “They”

If you are a member of the nerdy world of grammarians, you know that there are “controversial” grammar topics. One of those is the use of the Oxford comma. Another is the use of the singular they.
They is a pronoun. A pronoun is a word that stands in for a noun. For example, you would use they to perhaps stand in for the boys (The boys went to the circus/They went to the circus). Or you would use she to stand in for Lucy  (Lucy is mowing the lawn/She is mowing the lawn).

Very, Very, Very, Very Dead Words!

To be honest, the first time I ever heard the term “dead word” was when my daughter was in seventh grade, and her English teacher had dead words hanging from the ceiling of the classroom. A dead word is one that is overused and has lost its punch; therefore, dead words should be avoided as much as possible.
Probably the all-time deadest of words is a lot or, incorrectly, alot. If you must use it, at least use it as two separate words. Other dead words include nice and good,which are dull. Fun is another one and, of course, the triteawesome and cool, which I do tend to use (for shame!).

Who invented radio?

Radio came into being after there were significant developments that were made in wireless telegraphy. It was James Clarkes Maxwell who showed that the electromagnetic waves could travel through the empty space and other Scientists such as Heinrich Rudolf Hertz demonstrated the ability of the radio wave.  Nikola Tesla is regarded by many as one of the pioneers of telecommunication for the purpose of information. In 1897, he even applied for two patents one of which was a radio patent. He even developed the several wireless control devices. His electromagnetic receivers were more responsive than the coherers that were used by Marconi later. The term radio was used for the first time after 1920. Earlier to that wireless telegraphy was the term that was widely used.
