The best foods that help your brain (Cont'd)

4. NUTS AND SEEDS
Eating more nuts and seeds may be good for the brain, as these foods contain omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

Nuts and seeds are also rich sources of the antioxidant vitamin E, which protects cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

The nuts and seeds with the highest amounts of vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, hazelnuts.

Crack that nut and enjoy it!

3. BERRIES
Like dark chocolate, many berries contain flavonoid antioxidants. Research suggests that these may make the berries good food for the brain.

Antioxidants help by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. The antioxidants in berries include anthocyanin, caffeic acid, catechin, and quercetin. Also, animal studies have shown that blueberries help improve memory and may even delay short-term memory loss.

Antioxidant-rich berries that can boost brain health includes strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants, mulberries.

Try sprinkling them on your breakfast cereal or adding them to a smoothie.

2. DARK CHOCOLATE
Dark chocolate contains cocoa, also known as cacao. Cacao contains flavonoids, a type of antioxidant.
Antioxidants are especially important for brain health, as the brain is highly susceptible to oxidative stress, which contributes to age-related cognitive decline and brain diseases.
Eating this type of dark chocolate may improve brain plasticity, which is crucial for learning, and may also provide other brain-related benefits.

I bet, we all love chocolate!

The best foods that help your brain (Cont'd)

1. FATTY FISH
Fatty fish is usually at the top of the list when we talk about about brain foods. Why? because they are all rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
What does omega-3 fatty acids do?
Your brain uses omega-3s to build brain and nerve cells, and these fats are essential for learning and memory. They also may slow age-related mental decline and help ward off Alzheimer's disease.
Examples of fatty fish that contain high levels of omega-3s include: salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, sardines.

What type of food do you eat during exams?

Most Nigerian students believe that when reading in preparation for an exam, your brain needs a lot of sugar. Consequently, they start gulping bottles of Coke, Fanta, Pepsi or whatever they think has a high sugar content. Are they right? In the following posts, we will look at exactly what you should take to help your brain develop and function properly.

Background: What does the brain need?

The brain is an energy-intensive organ, using around 20 percent of the body's calories, so it needs plenty of good fuel to maintain concentration throughout the day.

The brain also requires certain nutrients to stay healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids, for example, help build and repair brain cells, and antioxidants reduce cellular stress and inflammation, which are linked to brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.

In the next few posts we will explore THE BEST FOODS THAT HELP YOUR BRAIN.

TIPS TO SOLVE ARITHMETIC PROBLEMS FASTER (CONTD)

In our last post we looked at tips for multiplying and adding numbers. Today we will look at tips to test if a number is divisible by certain integers.

Before going through the stress of division here’s a quick way to know when a number can be evenly divided by these certain numbers:

- 10 if the number ends in 0
- 9 when the digits are added together and the total is evenly divisible by 9
- 8 if the last three digits are evenly divisible by 8 or are 000
- 6 if it is an even number and when the digits are added together the answer is evenly divisible by 3
- 5 if it ends in a 0 or 5
- 4 if it ends in 00 or a two digit number that is evenly divisible by 4
- 3 when the digits are added together and the result is evenly divisible by the number 3
- 2 if it ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8

Challenge yourself to start solving those basic problems offhand, practice often, push your brain and develop it. You will become faster as you practice.

TIPS TO SOLVE ARITHMETIC PROBLEMS FASTER

Have you met people who solved math problems faster than you could punch your calculator? Yes they exist if you haven't met them.

Arithmetic problems appear in our everyday transactions; you add, subtract, multiply and divide almost on a daily basis and they can be overwhelming. But you don't have to run for your calculator every time you see an arithmetic problem. You don't have to be a professor of mathematics before you can solve arithmetic problems offhand.

Here are some tips.
1. Multiplying any number by 10.
The trick to multiplying any number by 10 is to add a zero to the end of the number.
For example
56 x 10 = 560.

2. Multiplying any two-digit number by 11.
To explain better let us use an example: 11 x 43

Take the original two-digit number and put a space between the digits. In this example, that number is 43.
4_3

Now add those two numbers together and put the result in the center:
4_(4+3)_3 = 473

The answer to 11 x 43 is 473.

*If the numbers in the center add up to a number with two digits, insert the second number and add 1 to the first one. Here is an example for the equation 11 x 67
6_(6+7)_7 = 6_13_7
(6 + 1)_3_7 = 7_3_7

There is the answer to 11 x 67: 737

3. Multiplying large numbers
If one of the numbers is even, divide the first number in half, and then double the second number and multiply the result. For example
40 x 260

Step 1: Divide the 40 by 2, which equals 20. Double 260, which equals 520.

Then multiply your two answers together.
20 x 520 = 10400

The answer to 40 x 260 is 10,400

4. Adding large numbers
Adding large numbers just in your head can be difficult. This method shows how to simplify this process by making all the numbers a multiple of 10. Here is an example:

644 + 238

While these numbers are hard to contend with, rounding them up will make them more manageable. So, 644 becomes 640 and 238 becomes 230.

Now, add 640 and 230 together. The total is 870. To find the answer to the original equation, it must be determined how much we subtracted from the numbers.

644 – 640 = 4 and 238 – 230 = 8

Now, add 4 and 8 together for a total of 12

To find the answer to the original equation, 12 must be added to the 870.

870 + 12 = 882

So the answer to 644 +238 is 882.

In the next post, we will deal a little with tips for quick division.

Literacy vs Education: an age long question.

Can you be uneducated with your level of academic achievements?

Is literacy another name for education? If the country has high literacy levels, does it mean country has highly educated people?

Let us simplify both terms:

• Literacy mainly involves acquiring the ability to read and write whereas education is about the overall development of a person. Education makes a complete human who not only read or
write but also has the ability to think in broader terms and analysis things rationally.

• Literacy in most cases takes place in a classroom with a teacher to point students in the right direction. Education can be gotten from anywhere and anyone at anytime.

• Literacy and education are indirectly related Literacy is about acquiring the skills and learning, while education is about applying these skills and learning for benefit of other people society or country.

• Literacy cannot make a person wise but education makes a person wiser and provides with the understanding of distinguishing between right and wrong.

• The learning received while becoming a literate can be forgotten but education lives when even the learning is forgotten.

• Every literate person cannot be called an educated person. Education is a much broader concept than literacy.

In practical terms:

• Literacy might make people feel superior to others, but only educated people are superior who know how to respect elders and pay due importance to their colleagues work.

• The people who can read and write, but use abusive and fowl language are literate but definitely not educated in human relations and management.

• Literate people working at higher positions and misusing their positions to degrade others are the biggest example of uneducated people.

In conclusion:

Education is about knowing your skills, abilities and the learning, and then using them in the right direction at the right time. Educational institutions can make all the students literate but cannot make all of them educated. Education changes a person as a whole. Educated people understand their responsibility towards the society and country. It is more of using the ethical practices to bring a real change in the society.

Dear Parents,

A child will go to school by 7am and close by 5pm for five days out of the seven days in a week.

During weekends that child comes home with many assignments in all the subjects he or she is offering in school and at such, there won't be time to rest and play at the weekends.

The child does that for almost four months hoping to enjoy the holidays only for the school (in collaboration with the parents) to come up with a scam in the name of holidays lesson.

What exactly do you want to teach that child again at this period? Is it what he or she learnt in the just concluded session or what they will learn next term?

Dear Nigerian parents, summer holiday is a period you allow a child to experience other things in life apart from formal education.

Allow them to travel for the vacation and if you don't have money for that, take them to places where they will learn new skills.

Let them go and learn drawing, computer coding, how to play football, martial art, business, catering, tie and dye, foreign languages, Barbing, sewing, hairdressing, how about music 🎶 classes? Etc.

Everytime Book!! book!!!book!!!! 😟😨😩😧.This is why most of our youths are unemployed. They only had FORMAL education; no FINANCIAL education. 😓😪😷 They can't do any other thing apart from white collar jobs. At that young age, they learn without be ashamed of what people will say, they will be using this new skills to feed themselves untill they get jobs in the areas they studied in college or university.

We learn how to discover a whole lot of things in school but not how to discover ourselves 😦😵😩
"SCHOOL IS NOT ENOUGH"!!!

Dear beloved parents, please avail these little ones the opportunities to explore life!!! Yes...... Let them in into the world of self-discovery. True happiness and contentment comes from doing what you have passion for.
