How to write an article ?

Writing articles-and distributing them to other sites-is a proven way to position yourself as an expert in your industry and to gain quality links back to your own site. To make the task easier to manage, break down the article writing process into these ten easy steps.

You have probably heard that writing articles is a great way to promote your business. But how do you reach the goal of writing an article? Mark Twain said it best,

“Write, write, then write.” All humor aside, to reach the goal you will need to spend some writing. Like a lot of things it is easier to find time to write in small chunks. Spending just thirty minutes a day on one or more of the following steps will move you toward your goal.

1.Define the specific thought, feeling, or action you want to stimulate in the reader.

Just like you do when writing good direct-response copy, you want to think about the purpose of your article. Do you want the reader to feel inspired? Consider changing his career? Visit a website or buy something?

If you are like most people, you will start having great ideas for articles, and then promptly forget them. Write your ideas down in a pocket notebook as soon as you have the idea. You won’t use every idea you write down, but some will turn out to be just the topic you wanted.

2.Outline how the article will help the reader

This step is similar to defining the benefits of the product or service you’re selling in a sales letter.It’s critical, because along with helping you write the article, the list of benefits will reveal if the article is even worthwhile to write!

Write two or three sentences about each of the other topics (paragraphs) in your thesis statement (e.g., retention, sales and referrals). Don’t worry about writing more now.

3.Include useful instruction on your topic.

The next step in this process has you identifying some sort of instruction you can give your reader. Just like with a sales letter, you want to engage him, and useful instruction will ensure that happens.

Now, this doesn’t mean that every article needs to be a “how-to.” The instruction could just be as simple as explaining how a marketing process works, or providing examples of what others do when faced with a similar situation.

Step 6: Finish up by writing a summation sentence and paragraph. Continuing with the “attention” example you might begin by writing, “You can see why paying attention to your customers is so important and can make life easier on you in the long run.” In general you will tell the reader what benefits they are going to get, the time they are going to save, money the are going to make, etc. I recommend you keep the last paragraph brief and to the point.

Time Management in Speech

Time management is one of the key factors to success in any field of work. It is important for your personal life and for your career. Time management teaches you patience and how to tackle difficult tasks in a given space of time. It teaches you how to make the most of your valuable time and increases your productivity and efficiency.

But what basically is time management?

You may not have realized it, but when you agree to speak at a conference or other industry event, you have essentially signed a contract with your audience. That contract says, in exchange for giving you their full attention, you will share your knowledge and passion about your topic and you will share it within a specified amount of time.

It is your responsibility to uphold this unspoken contract. Those speakers who can manage their time effectively will be successful and asked back to speak at that conference or event year after year. Those who can’t will be shown the door.

Here are some tips to help you manage your time more effectively during your next speech:

Determine How Much Time You Will Need for Speaking

You may be given a total of 30 minutes for your presentation, but that doesn’t mean you will speak for the entire half hour. Always remember your total time will be different from your talking time for a couple of reasons:

  • You will need to allow for the Q&A section of your presentation. Sometimes the meeting organizer or event planner will determine how much time should go toward the Q&A, but sometimes you’ll be expected to manage it yourself. As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to allow 20% – 25% of your presentation for questions, particularly if you know ahead of time there will be a large turnout. Typically, the bigger the audience, the more time you will need to take questions.
  • You must also take into account things that can go wrong during live presentations. You might be forced to start a few minutes late because someone else went over (they didn’t manage their time wisely), or there may be some unforeseen interruptions. So, for example, should your overall time be 40 minutes, 15 of those should go toward the Q&A and 5 should be saved for delays and interruptions.

Time Yourself Speaking

This might seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people just sort of wing it. You’d also be surprised how many people are really, really bad at gauging time. You could ask 10 people to speak for five minutes and inevitably someone will stand up and speak for 15 minutes or more, thinking they only spoke for five.

Time is essentially math, there are hard and fast rules. You can’t speak for 63 minutes and hope everyone thinks it was only 40. So, to know you are actually sticking to your time limit you must practice speaking, with a timer.

It’s important you do this at the beginning of your speech preparation. Leave it till the end and you might be frustrated to learn you’ve prepared far too much material. You will then be forced to slice and dice your presentation the night before the event, and guess how well it will go.

Create a Schedule

A schedule for your presentation helps you understand the pacing of your overall message, “Once upon a time, and then, and then, and then, the end.” Knowing the flow and pace of your own narrative will give you a better sense of the information you are trying to convey and whether or not it will make sense to your audience.

Your schedule may look a bit something like this:

  • 2pm – Introduction
  • 2:05 part 1
  • 2:15 part 2
  • 2:25 part 3
  • 2:35 closing
  • 2:40 stop talking & begin Q&A

Once you “see” your presentation timed out and rehearse it so you can “feel” what it should feel like, you’ll be able to know that you are staying on schedule once you’re on that stage.

Spend Time Preparing Your Message

Even speakers who manage their time wisely, set schedules and practice with a timer can go over. Here’s why: they didn’t prepare their overall message beforehand. What happens then is, during their speech, they see their audience isn’t quite engaged. In fact, most people are sitting their staring with completely blank expressions on their faces. This causes the speaker to panic a little and start elaborating… then elaborating some more… and some more. Before you know it, they’ve added almost 10 minutes to their time.

Had they spent more time preparing their presentation, they would have been able to select only the information that would have engaged and inspired their audience, not bored or confused them.

Use a Timer Onstage

It’s always a good idea to be able to actually see a clock somewhere in the room. Some conference rooms have a clock, others don’t, so ask ahead of time and bring your own little travel clock that you

can keep on the podium or in front of you on the stage. Just make sure you can read it at a distance.

As with most successes in life, timing is everything. Make sure your next presentation is a success by following these time management rules.

One Of the top 100 geniuses of the world

Ali Javan was born in Tehran to Iranian Azeri parents from Tabriz.

Ali Javan was born in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on December 26, 1926 , Died September 12, 2016. His parents were Azerbaijanis originally from Tabriz; his father was a lawyer. Educated at Alborz High School, an establishment run by Zoroastrians, he started his university studies at the University of Tehran. After a year, however, he moved to Columbia University in the United States, where he took graduate courses in Physics and Mathematics and music classes with the composer Henry Cowell. After taking a Ph.D. under Charles Townes in 1954, he stayed on at Columbia for four more years as a post-doctoral student researching the atomic clock.

MIT Professor Emeritus Ali Javan, the institute’s first Francis Wright Davis Professor of Physics, who was a trailblazer in the fields of laser technology and quantum electronics, died of natural causes in Los Angeles on Sept. 12, at the age of 89. In 1960, while working at Bell Laboratories, Javan invented the world’s first gas laser. The technology would be applied to telecommunications, internet data transmission, holography, bar-code scanners, medical devices, and more.

Javan came to MIT as an associate professor of physics in 1961 and founded the nation’s first large-scale research center in laser technology. Javan also developed the first method for accurately measuring the speed of light and launched the field of high-resolution laser spectroscopy.

“In the 1960s and 1970s, Professor Javan’s laser group at MIT was a hotbed of innovation and advances in amazingly broad areas in laser physics,” said Irving P. Herman Ph.D. ’77, who studied with Javan and is currently the Edwin Howard Armstrong Professor of Applied Physics at Columbia University. “His group was key to understanding the fundamentals of the interactions of the laser with the matter, and in implementing them. He will be remembered by his many students and colleagues as a brilliant man, a pioneer, an inspiring man, and a kind and dear man.”

Making history: The first gas laser

“The first laser, the ruby laser by Ted Maiman, used optical pumping to create the population inversion necessary to achieve lasting,” Herman notes. “At the time this was difficult and not applicable to all systems. Javan was able to see how a population inversion can be created in a gas discharge by selective, resonant energy transfer. This was key to his invention of the first gas laser, the He-Ne laser, which was also the first continuous wave laser.”

Javan’s breakthrough came on Dec. 12, 1960, after a snowstorm had forced an early closure of the Murray, New Jersey-based Bell Labs. At 4:20 pm that day (Javan checked his watch), for the first time in history, a continuous laser light beam emanated from a gas laser apparatus. As Javan later described it, he “drove the design into its self-sustained oscillation mode. Emanating at its output, for this very first-time ever, a continuous-wave (CW), collimated light beam, at a color purity as it proved to the limits that the law of nature will permit.”

On Dec. 13, 1960, Javan and his Bell Labs colleagues used the laser light beam to place a telephone call, the first time in history that a laser beam had been used to transmit a telephone conversation.

6 September, Dalton’s birthday, who is john dalton and what did he do

 

Chemist John Dalton is credited with pioneering modern atomic theory. He was also the first to study color blindness.

Synopsis

Chemist John Dalton was born September 6, 1766, in Eaglesfield, England. During his early career, he identified the hereditary nature of red-green color blindness. In 1803 he revealed the concept of Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures. Also in the 1800s, he was the first scientist to explain the behavior of atoms in terms of the measurement of weight. Dalton died July 26, 1844 in Manchester, England.

Early Life and Career

British chemist John Dalton was born in Eaglesfield, England, on September 6, 1766, to a Quaker family. He had two surviving siblings. Both he and his brother were born color-blind. Dalton’s father earned a modest income as a handloom weaver. As a child, Dalton longed for a formal education, but his family was very poor. It was clear that he would need to help out with the family finances from a young age.

After attending a Quaker school in his village in Cumberland, when Dalton was just 12 years old he started teaching there. When he was 14, he spent a year working as a farmhand, but decided to return to teaching—this time as an assistant at a Quaker boarding school in Kendal. Within four years, the shy young man was made principal of the school. He remained there until 1793, at which time he became a math and philosophy tutor at the New College in Manchester.

While at New College, Dalton joined the Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society. Membership granted Dalton access to laboratory facilities. For one of his first research projects, Dalton pursued his avid interest in meteorology. He started keeping daily logs of the weather, paying special attention to details such as wind velocity and barometric pressure—a habit Dalton would continue all of his life. His research findings on atmospheric pressure were published in his first book, Meteorological Findings, the year he arrived in Manchester.

What does congress mean?

What is a congress and what is the meaning of difference with a congress or semantic conference? In the words of the congress, it means bringing together more than a few thousand people who come together in a specialized field such as scientific, professional, cultural and other fields for the exchange of ideas. The congress is often about exchanging views on a particular issue and is held to resolve or express the point of view of the congress. It might be argued that Congress is meaningful in terms of meaning with a conference or conference, in terms of the importance of the topic and the number of participants in the conferences. Some congresses can be held in several days or several sessions, and there is no option at the conference

congress – definition of congress in English

A formal meeting or series of meetings for discussion between delegates, especially those from a political party, trade union, or from within a particular sphere of activity.
