Muscle Memory - Mind Memory - Brain Memory - Heart Memory

Many players claim that their muscles remember what to do. I heard this statement from Usain Bolt, the champion sprinter.

While great players develop muscle memory, great knowledge workers have to develop mind memory. Developing mind memory involves reading and listening, contemplating and meditating.
Contemplating is evaluating the subject internally for its truth and practical utility. Meditating is focusing on it to realize the benefit of the subject in reality. Meditation creates the vision or more simply the plan of action. Meditation involves single minded  focus on the issue by preventing other ideas and thoughts for some point in time. Meditation is gradual withdrawal of sense organs' perception in the brain and concentrate it on the issue you want to meditate on. One effect of such meditation will be the memory that you develop in unconscious. Even you do not think of it for years, when needed unconscious provides you the required information.

What is needed to develop the mind memory.

A Tibetan proverb is appropriate in this context.

"It takes six times of thorough study and practice, for dharma to travel from skin to the bone marrow."

How many times do students and teachers read their texts?

Average Income for a Top 50,000 Blog


A 2006 University of Texas, Chitika study came out with an estimate of $500 million advertisement or total income for the top 50,000 blogs. But the in the details it was shown that top 15% blogs account for 90% of the income and remaining 85% account for 10% of the income. This mean $50 million is made by 42,500 blogs. This gives an average for the 42,500 blogs as $1176.47. This seems to be a reasonable estimate. Earning $100 per month through blogs or online articles will put a person at the  top 50,000 blog level.

If the blog is in top 7500 blogs, the total income estimate is $450 million and the average income per blog will be $60,000 per annum or $5000 per month.

There is an alternative way to check this estimate. To get $100 per month, a blog must have 100,000 page views per month. 50,000 blogs having 100,000 page views will give 5,000,000,000 page views. This is equal to 5 billion page views per month and this is equal to what Blogger alone is getting presently. The total page views per blogosphere is estimated as 15 billion page views. Hence, estimating that top 50,000 blogs are contributing 5 billion page views is reasonable. A blogger earning $100 per month can consider himself to be in the top 50,000. But certainly $1 cpm which we assumed in this argument can be increased by bloggers by focusing on better monetization.

Vijaya Dashami - 2016 - Festival of Success - Festival of Breaking Barriers - Narayana Rao

Vijaya Dashami festival is a festival of success. It is a festival of great success. There is a tradition for the top people in the society to review publicly their successes in the last year and then come out with programmes for the coming year. The festival is associate with the tradition of "Seemollanghan". This can be interpreted in number of ways. While kings may interpret as extending their area of rule, farmers may interpret it as acquiring new land. The industrialists and businessmen can see it as expansion of their business. It is breaking barriers in any field by every individual.

What is special about myself in the last year (2015-16)?

In July 2016, I came out with a list of principles of industrial engineering. The principles are based on Taylor's principles of scientific management. Even though the subject, industrial engineering is 100 years old, a set of principles were not declared so far.

I also had a distinction in the year in the field of publication, The lecture that I gave in Thane on the topic - Deendayal's Ekatma Manav Darshan versus Capitalism were appreciated and it was published in the book "Rashtra Drashta - Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya."  The book has articles and interviews with Shri Mohanji Bhagawat, Shri Bhayyaji Joshi, Shri Devendra Phadanvis, Chief Minister of Maharshtra and other leaders and thinkers. In the lecture, I advocated that M.P.s of constituencies have to prepare investment plans for their constituencies and send them to Central Government some time before budgets are made. This is equivalent to budget memoraundum by the M.P.s. Various suggestions made by M.P.s to promote investment in their constituency can be evaluated and incorporated by the Finance Minister in the budget. This will help in developing decentralization of planning.

The third that I have to specially mention is the partial fasting that I did in this year's Navratri. I would like to continue it for two more months in an effort to lose weight.

Blogger Making $1000 per Month on 165 visitors per Day

The blogger claimed that he made $1000 a month from affiliate income. He wrote:

 I was able to increase my overall website traffic by 55%, particularly search engine traffic.

In the last 12 months the blog has managed to attract a cool 61,073 sessions (previous year 23,676), and 96,179 page views (previous year 41,267).

On average Magnet4Blogging has been getting 165 visits per day.

Gross Total Affiliate Marketing Income – $6,497.88

Blog Services

Website Design & Branding – $6,699.79

Gross Total Blog Income For 2016 (October to October – financial year) – $13,197.17

In July I earned $1,114.91 from affiliate marketing, which was truly awesome.

I also reached 1,000 email subscribers to this blog last month as well.

From my experience with blogging, it is a big  affiliate marketing  income. Bloggers have to know the ways of making money from affiliate marketing also apart from adsense. Adsense gives very little income as the income of magnet4blogging shows.

Technologies Disrupting the Current Education Model

Cloud computing, Video steaming - YouTube technology, and Listening/Talking Computer - IBM Watson Supercomputer to give the new global model of internet based learning model wherein all learners can learn from Global Professors of Excellence.


New Internet Global Excellence Education Model.

Now the technological developments are ready to develop a new internet global excellence education model. We can have global professors of excellence lecture to anybody in the world on one to one basis and then clarify their doubts one one-to-one basis and examine them at their convenience with super computer acting as the facilitating intermediary.
(Idea posted first on 9 September 2011)

Video lectures by the best faculty will be the basis of education. These video lectures are supported by super computers with listening/talking capabilities and doubts of students will be answered by these supercomputers on one-to-one basis. The video lecture is also delivered to each student on one-to-one basis. The faculty support will be there to improve the capability of the computer based interaction package of the subject.

Thus we will see only limited video lectures being used through out world just like the limited number of textbooks used throughout the world now. (10.11.2011)

Technologies to be used

Video steaming - YouTube technology

Do We require Colleges and Institutes in Various Cities and Towns?

We may still require colleges and institutes to provide a schedule to learners. But learners may miss the schedule and can go through the lecture on their computer. Unless they go through the lecture they cannot write the examination. Also local institutes will provide counselling service and take care of practical work. Local faculty now can focus more on providing practical application education. Theoretical knowledge is delivered through central lectures.

Well yesterday only I thought of the internet education model. One top professor teaching everybody in the world with the assistance of IBM Watson listening/talking super computer and video streaming. I also thought of the question paper set by the professor. Now computers can create even case studies for examination paper purpose and can correct them.

Sounds good. Instead of students paying cheat sites for essays they can look forward to using software. Cheaper, better, faster!
My comment in reply
Technology may facilitate copy paste, but it may be used to constrain and provide focus to the learner also. One idea I am thinking for scheduled learning is terminals that show only the scheduled lecture and nothing else during the scheduled learning period. The terminals can have cameras and thereby one can understand the listening and viewing habits of the learners. Learners can be asked to submit assignments through softwares that automatically track every site visited by the learner during assignment preparation period and hence whether he copy pasted or summarized the content can be assessed. Even copy paste can be suppressed by the software and hence the learner is forced to type the essay himself. All this you are doing to ensure the learner assimilates the material to be learned. The e-learning content is always present to provide him opportunity to access it as many times he wants to.

I think the digital technologies are certainly plus for the learning process.

Kinship and Tribes in Social Media Communities - Develop Them

The title is to tell you that relationships exist in social media communities. Bloggers have to establish relations. It comes when somebody likes your posts and gets into conversation with you or you like somebody's posts and develop the conversation. Either way interaction and conversation develops relationship. There are persons in social media who develop huge followings. They develop tribes a term popularised by Seth Godin. He even wrote a book on it.

So every blogger needs to try and build a tribe. Is it easy? No, You have to know by trial and error, methods and techniques wherein you are successful and not so successful. You will continue investing in methods that give success to you. But you have to be aware of all methods and try many of them as you have time at your disposal.

The relationships can begin with a comment, like and share.  Get into helping other bloggers and developing relationships and networks. They will help you when you write good and great posts.

I followed Jason's advice today. Went through my Twitter feed and made number of retweets. Benefit I got 10 new relationships. So it has some success probability. Try and enlarge your online contact network.

Retweets and Hashtag shares have increased the twitter contacts by 25 in the last two days. The number now is 2,376.

Offer Your Comments to the Tweets of People You Follow.

April 18

This activity is essentially going through the tweets of persons you are following establishing a relation with them through conversation. Force yourself on a day to go through your twitter feed. Allocate time and spend that time in going through and giving comments. You are likely to get replies and give reply to them. Your kinship ties develop that way.

I shall try it for few days from today (20 March 2016) and let you know the response.

I tried it on 20 June 2016. Liked two tweets. Included the links given in the tweet  in my blog posts. Informed them. Let me see what is the response.

The comments can offer them a relevant blog post of your in response to the topic they are tweeting about. Sometimes it can be answer to a question that they asked? At other times it is relevant to the topic they are highlighting. I sent many replies to tweets with my blog post links. I got many times good responses on Twitter platform for my comment type tweets.  Now I am actively trying use of hash tags. This gives a good opportunity to give comments on tweets located through hash tag based search. Giving comments on hash tag feeds is more easy because your are involved in the hash tag topic.

We are not here merely to make a living. We are here to enrich the world. - Woodrow Wilson


My reponse:
God sent you to enrich his creation.

Online revenues reached a peak. The momentum is still there. Once I a wrote a mail to HEF forum saying that a knol book can earn Rs.15,000 per year. Yes, it can get that sort of revenue and also can provide a platform which can be updated in real time by the faculty members.

We will have lot more involvement of IBM Watson Computer or artificial intelligence system in our education process to provide one-to-one interaction with the students or learners.

interesting statistics about the makeup of today’s blogging world:

61% are hobbyists – the rest are professionals
1/3 have an income of over 75K a year, 1/4 over 100K
half of the blogosphere has been blogging for four years or more
1/3 of bloggers work in mainstream media and blog separately


The above statistics indicate that it is the main stream media people who are making money by blogging separately. Yes persons like Paul Krugman etc. have popular blogs getting 500,000 visitors per month in US alone.

Very good collection on Blogworld
