mind vs mind December 12, 2008

Paradox is a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true. Paradoxical thinking is holding two opposing ideas at the same time. Nowadays, thinking out of box is already out-of-date. The new one is we need to thinking a new dimension from A to Blue.

There are Myths about creativity that existed in the world such as; Creative people are born not made. I really not agreed with this myth because people can be creative from the change in their thinking and environment. Second is Creativity involves play and laughter. I agree with his one because creativity for me means having fun and just “shout out” what is in the mind. The last is Creativity and discipline does not mix. The principles of creativity are: Interpret words differently. Work with others, especially those who differ from you. Create analogies and metaphors. Make yourself a little uncomfortable. Practice is option-widening and reframing. Play and laugh. Spend a little time each day. Think “I’m a creative person!”

Creative thinking I think is requires some aspect from us. First is time. Creativity couldn’t limit by time, it could not working under pressure condition. Also creativity needs a lot of energy we had, because as a creative people, we cannot only sit back and quiet. It means not expressing ourselves out. Practice makes perfect. It related to creativity too. Creative people not just being born it, but do a lot practice in daily. Last is commitment. This thing is very sure. It just not in creativity required, but in life it’s very important to do something “masterpiece”.

Magnetic Games November 21, 2008

Filed under: C.R.E.A.T.I.V.I.T.Y — thisislife @ 11:56 PM

A game device in which opposing magnetic fields are used to position a plurality of magnetic balance tiles around the periphery of a starting magnet in accordance with a set of rules which specify unique patterns of displacement and awards points which are consistent with the degree of difficulty in replicating the patterns. The game may be played by one or more players in a group.


A game device utilizing opposing magnetic fields comprising: a Game Pad; a starting magnet, referred to as the Home Base, which is placed on the playing surface of Game Pad; a plurality of magnetic balance tiles, which are positioned about the Game Pad so that the opposing magnetic fields of the Home Base and an individual tile, placed in proximity to the Home Base, cause the elevated edge of the tile facing the Home Base to remain in balance with respect to the Game Pad; in like manner, other tiles placed on the Game Pad in proximity to previously balanced tiles will remain in balance in accordance with the player’s ability to judge the effects of the interacting magnetic fields; a set of rules which stipulate unique patterns of magnetic balance tiles and awards points to the player or players which are commensurate with the difficulty of replicating a particular pattern.

The game device of claim
1, in which a plurality of Game Pads are provided with playing surfaces that vary in texture to provide an additional challenge to the player or players.
The game device of claim 1, in which an alternate Game Pad comprises an aperture dimensioned to accept the starting magnet.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Field of the Invention

This invention relates generally to games which rely on the interactions of magnetic fields to test the skills of a player or players, and more specifically a game device which relies upon the characteristic of a magnetic field whereby magnets of like poles form a mutual field of repulsion.

Description

Accordingly, one object and advantage of this invention is to provide a game which pits the skills of a player or players against the opposing fields of magnetic playing pieces.

Another object and advantage of this invention is to provide a game in which varying skill levels may be attained by introducing magnetic pieces with varying degrees of flux density, and game pads with playing surfaces that vary from a coarse texture to a smooth facade.

Another object and advantage of this invention is to provide a plurality of games, all employing the same magnetic game pieces and playing board, which challenge the skills of the player or players.

Further objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent from consideration of the drawings and ensuing description of it.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention comprises a playing pad, henceforth called the Game Pad, a starting magnet, henceforth called the Home Base, and a plurality of magnetic balance tiles.

The playing pad, which may be a rigid, or alternately, flexible body structure, is placed on a suitable playing surface. The Home base is then placed on the Game Pad, with an identifying mark facing upwards, at a location chosen by the player or players. In an alternate form of the game, the Game Pad includes an aperture dimensioned to accept the Home Base, thereby defining a fixed location for the Home Base.

The object of the game is to position a magnetic balance tile in close proximity to the Home Base, with the magnetic fields of the Home Base and the tile in opposition. The edge of the tile facing the Home Base is held at an angle with the vertex of the angle formed by the edge of the tile furthermost from the Home Base, which abuts against the Game Pad, and the plane of the Game Pad. The slope of the angle is a function of the intensity of the magnetic fields, the distance from the Home Base, and the skill of the player. Properly positioned, the tile will maintain this angle when released by the player. If this is successfully done, the player then repeats this operation with the previously balanced tile now taking the place of the Home Base. Alternatively, the player may attempt to balance another tile with reference to the Home Base at a different location on the Game Pad Patterns may be formed in accordance with the rules stipulated by the game being played. Should the player mis-judge the interacting magnetic fields being created, the previously balanced tiles will collapse onto the Game Pad, destroying the pattern.

Patterns may be created with the magnetic balance tiles which vary in complexity and hence challenge the skills of the player or players. Points are then given in accordance with a set of pre-described rules and totaled to determine the winner of the game.

Warren Buffett was born in 1930 in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of a stockbroker and Congressman, and has become probably the world’s most successful investor.

As a boy he delivered newspapers to make extra money and this probably sparked his interest in the media where he has made several successful investments including the Washington Post Company, a stock that has made him a lot of money and which he vows never to sell.

Imbued with a determination to make good and an entrepreneurial nature, Warren Buffett dabbled in several part time businesses but his destiny was chartered early in the piece when, after graduating from the University of Nebraska, he studied business at the Columbia Business School under Benjamin Graham. He tried to get a position with Graham’s firm and was at first unsuccessful. He finally got the job and learned a lot about stock investment from The Master.

Graham retired and Warren Buffett started a limited partnership in Omaha, using capital contributed by family and friends. The partnership was a great success and Buffett is said to have averaged an annual rate of return for the partnership in excess of 23 per cent, far in excess of the market.

Buying Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffett decided to wind up the partnership, returning the lucky investors their capital and their share of the profits, and bought an interest in Berkshire Hathaway. The smart ones did so. Buffett’s early days were not great. The company was in an industry facing real challenges from exports and high manufacturing costs. This was the start of Buffett’s interest in insurance and the rise to financial fame of both himself and Berkshire Hathaway. The insurance game is a hard one but under Buffett, the company has become not only a successful share investor, but a leading provider of insurance.

Under Warren Buffett and Munger, Berkshire Hathaway has become an investment giant that wholly owns a number of successful companies that include:

Geico Corporation

Nebraska Furniture Mart

Sees Candy Shops

Warren Buffett is just as hard to define as the investor. He projects a homespun frugality but one suspects that he plays his personality as close to the chest as he does his investment secrets. He always claims that it is his partner, Charlie Munger, who keeps his feet planted firmly in the ground.

Warren Buffett has become a legend and is generally ranked, along with his mentor, Benjamin Graham, first in a stellar cast of investors that includes Peter Lynch, John Neff, and Philip Fisher.

Last year Warren Buffett stunned us all with his “big” gift of $31 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. His generosity will make a huge difference in the lives of people around the world, and his example will be talked about for decades.

He’s also a fantastic teacher. Over the years, Warren Buffett has talked to thousands of college students (usually in informal sessions with high sense of humor and high ethical standard). Warren loves those chats. I think he has more fun swapping ideas with students than he does meeting Wall Street managers. Great teachers are also great learners and Warren is no exception. For instance, although he’s famous for being a natural public speaker, it didn’t come easily to him.

He’s never afraid to admit what he doesn’t know, and he loves to learn. Warren Buffett, now 76, has set an example for a whole generation of students, from budding business leaders in Nebraska to a couple of philanthropists in Seattle. We’re all lucky to have him.

 

Good Grades without Being a NERD September 22, 2008

When you are smart, you sometimes can face ridicule from classmates. Lecturers recognize your intelligence as hard work, while other students might only recognize it as kissing up or being a “nerd” You shouldn’t have to hide your intelligence, I think these ways is very compatible with your “PEOPLE” environment

Practice self restraint when raising your hand to answer questions. Most lectures will recognize your hard work through other means and keep your in class answering to a minimum.

Stay organized by keeping track of assignments and test dates. This doesn’t mean you need to carry a big organizer. It doesn’t make subjecting you to more teasing.

Review it again. I think, the “read again” thing can very improve your memory about what had been thought in that day and you will remember it longer than you just hear the lecturers said.

Relax. Overly eager to learn can bring potentially negative attention your way.

Do quality work. Slacking off in school to avoid being labeled as a nerd or know-it-all only hurts you in the long run.

 

Inspire Yourself?

Sometimes you need a boost to get CREATIVE content flowing, to get inspiration on ART

First thing, Get comfortable with yourself like your taste, favorites and try to implement in daily activity and CREATE YOUR “OWN” SELF. Then, Using your ruler, draw a straight line diagonally across page. Begin in the top left corner and draw down to the bottom right corner. Now do the same thing on the opposite side of your paper. Using your ruler, draw a line from the top right corner, diagonally down the page and ending at the bottom left corner. You should now have an “X” or your POSITIVE IMAGE / CHARACTERISTIC. Now, take your ruler and draw lines connecting to the other lines. You might make boxes of various sizes, or you might create something asymmetrical and interesting. Continue drawing connecting lines with your ruler until you are satisfied. Next step Since you are probably tired of drawing lines by now, go ahead and add free-hand curves to your design. Now is when your creativity will begin to blossom.
With color, you will bring your design to life and you may be surprised at how much you like it! For added punch you can go back and define your lines with heavy black marker. The more elements, the happier you’ll be with your inspiration piece.

The RESULT, you should be quite ready to spend the next few hours in the bliss known only to creative minds.
