How to learn any language?

August 24, 2014

I haven’t used either one, but either one can work, because the most important factor is you bringing your determination to learn the language.

I taught with about three methods for teaching English when I was in Santo Domingo; one was a textbook in a normal classroom setting but for typical private school kids (I didn’t last long there). Another was “Ms. Clarice’s English School”, which was similar.

But by far the best was a Dominican guy who had family ties in Holland but spoke perfect American English. He had researched the best way to teach.

Optimum class size 6. A few dozen stick figures for some common nouns and pronouns, with the word below the figures. Memorize and review. Then a few dozen action verbs in the present tense with stick figures to illustrate and the words below. Then verbs in other tenses, and on from there. Didn’t last long because I think he expected faster returns.

Mr. Berlitz himself said he didn’t study a language more than 15 minutes at a sitting, come back later.

I read Barry Farber’s book, “How to Learn Any Language”, for me fascinating. He goes over the various methods and analyzes them. Then he says pick the one you like the best because any of them will work if you are motivated. He’s fluent in several dozen languages. Other people go to the beach for the weekend, or opera, he’s told people he’s going to learn another language this week. Love the book. Hardest language to learn: Finnish. Easiest: Indonesian.

Here’s a short “clip with quips” from one talk he gave on the subject:

As an aside, he was helping Hungarian refugees escape after the Freedom FIghters that pushed out the Russians in 1954 were stomped on by the heavy Stalinist boot.

How did USG know in January 2014 how many minors would flood the border in the summer?

August 24, 2014

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/06/20/government-hiring-escorts-for-65000-unaccompanied-illegal-alien-children/

Almost everybody knows by now that unprecedented massive numbers of minor-age persons have been arriving without adults accompanying them at the southern border of the United States. I say “minor-age persons” because almost all of them are 15, 16, and 17 years old.

People who have paid attention and receive each government news bulletin with healthy skepticism are also aware that the federal government posted at FedBizOpps.Gov calls for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children”, many, many, months before the flood of “children” began arriving at the border.

But just today I noticed a certain sentence in the reproduced ad that startled even me:

….Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total.. [UAC = Unaccompanied Alien Children]

If this wave of arrivals was so surprising and caught them supposedly so unexpected, How in the world did the Obama administration predict the numbers?

Is ISIS a Psy-Ops operation?

August 24, 2014

Dave Hodges of the “Common Sense Show” seems to think so;

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/08/21/the-goal-of-the-isis-psyops-is-world-war-iii/

During the Ferguson demonstration, why did none of the marchers or the police pay attention to the guy carrying the sign that said ISIS here?

Was that supposed to pass unnoticed? Was it bait for conspiracy theorists? Nah, nothing to see here, move along…

Seems some psyops can’t work without getting coverage from eagle eyes in maverick independent alternative news sites.

I don’t agree with everything in the article but much of it makes sense.. Russian military academies teaches a first-strike strategy too, for example. And the man-on-the-street in Russia probably scoffs and guffaws at “conspiracy theorists” who say that out loud in their legacy media institutions.

Sardi writes about major revelation of vaccine fraud

August 24, 2014

Bill Sardi writes about the revelation of an intentionally rigged study to cover up the link between vaccines and autism:

The lack of major news media coverage of possibly the biggest government whistleblower revelation since disclosure of the Tuskegee Experiment in 1972 [InfoPlease.com] suggests more than fraud at the highest levels of the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) as well as major vaccine makers, it suggests the nation’s news agencies are complicit in portraying a government view that there is no link between vaccination and the unexplained rise of autism.

Only alternative news sources are covering the story so far which broke on August 8 when a Brian S Hooker, a Simpson University researcher published a report in the journal Translational Neurodegeneration that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine was shown to increase the risk for autism 3.4 times among young black boys.

Reaction to “Conservative to Anarchist”; Me, Communist to Missionary to Anarchist

August 24, 2014

My reaction to Steve Patterson’s post, From Conservative to Anarchist:

http://steve-patterson.com/conservative-anarchist/

Back when I joined a “new religious movement” during the Jesus People thing in the 1960s, we got educated by the founders in the future consequences of bubble fiat dollars (“green paper pigs”–think inflated piggy bank balloon) and the stupidity of getting off a gold standard, and the way the rest of the world will also get punked for counting on the dollar. We were “dropped out” of “the system” and “turned on” to the truth.

Before that, in college, all that indoctrination turned me into a Communist because ever since LBJ invaded the Dominican Republic I remembered thinking about helping the poor and being “fair” and all that. But that led to being a sort of “syndicalist anarchist”, which sounds leftish but it also sounded right. My rationale then was: If you can’t trust people to govern themselves, you can’t trust them to govern anybody else. I didn’t have a clue what label that would have other than anarchist.

Then I discovered the way certain now well-known cliques and “secret societies” manipulate things, became minarchist finally, and through a Bible-discussion forum discovered Ron Paul when a fellow believer mentioned hanging Ron Paul banners over bridges. The rest is the same history as Steve’s.

This verse means so much more to me now:

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;–Isaiah 61:1

Darwinians always pretended that new evidence for Creation as if it were opposite

August 23, 2014

God owns creation, and there’s nothing wrong with “proving” it, because He himself said in the writings of Psalms that the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork. Even the most important events in human and world history, the birth, death by crucifixion and resurrection, reflect themselves in evidence, as Paul’s teachings in the book of Acts and the epistles emphasize so much.

The foolishness of God is indeed wiser than the wisdom of men, who proclaiming themselves to be wise became fools. So it says too.

Despite the success of the anti-Christian and anti-theist propaganda machine, more and more evidence hits the science community with regularity now, and with the same dogmatic tenaciousness they immediately use the evidence that testifies to Biblical truth as if it supported them!

It’s the same logic that uses the failure of government programs to claim that we need more government!

Evidence of the Flood in the Grand Canyon, now they say it’s slow erosion. Sea fossils everywhere, even atop the highest mountains of the Himalayas. (My buddy from Iowa says they were all over the ground).

DNA, with the language of a symbolic digital computing machine more designed, more sophisticated, than all the Internet combined.

Pasteur disproved the Darwinian presumption of the say that life was constantly spontaneously appearing. So they said it was a long time ago, it could have happened, the alternative is believing the Bible, so forget it.

Then Mendel’s experiments and Lysenko’s flopping failure showed that kind indeed did beget after its own kind only, not into other kinds, so they said it took so long we can’t observe it.

Then they discovered DNA that so contradicted the spontaneous unguided myth that one of its discovered began to blame aliens. (See Michael Crichton’s essay, “Aliens Cause Global Warming”, and the Inquisition of the Faith of Darwinian Dogma proclaimed that they had gladly discovered how it all happened all by itself without intervention.

So they plagiarized the creationist idea of “natural selection” which had obviously showed how natural wild populations kept generally stable populations, and said that was the magic sauce. And don’t tell them they did not use the scientific method to conclude this, because they are the scientists and Darwinian’s heretics are kooks.

So then NASA scientists said we’ll prove it, we’ll send a satellite out to measure the magnetic fields of the outer gas giants and it’ll be so-and-so much.

–But creationist Russ Humphreys said, aha, it’s been this long since Creation happened around 6-7,000 years ago, and the universe was created starting with water as in Genesis, and this and that, and some calculations and voila. Based on Genesis One, it’ll be between x and y.

So it turned out that NASA was orders of magnitude off, Humphreys hit a bullseye, so NASA said no predictions about Mercury.

Darwin said no fossil record, no Darwinism.

Stephen Gould says the fossil record stands against evolution, so therefore the lack of it proves MY theory of evolution, which says that it happened in spurts so fast of COURSE we can’t find the fossils!

But of course the Creation itself is infused with the testimony to the Creation.

Blacks starting to abandon Obama, Democratic Party, liberal agenda

August 23, 2014

Surprise: Blacks are starting to abandon Obama and the “liberal agenda”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdTihf2_GGM

..and they’re even getting mad…

But both parties cause disillusion. Freedom from government is the way to go…

And separation of government not only from religion, but from us, our pocketbooks, our bank accounts, our bedrooms, from whatever currency we would choose to use, our lives.

Obama to Cops: Lay off reporters. Reporters to Obama: Practice What You Preach

Press activists rally against the possible jailing of a Pulitzer Prize winner.

President Barack Obama speaks to reporters Thursday about developments in Ferguson, Mo.

By Steven NelsonAug. 14, 2014 | 5:06 p.m. EDT+ More

President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder asked police on Thursday not to jail reporters doing their jobs in Missouri as press advocates asked them not to jail Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter James Risen for doing his job.

“Here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground,” Obama said in a televised press conference around noon.

“Journalists must not be harassed or prevented from covering a story that needs to be told,” Holder added in a statement.

On Wednesday, reporters from The Huffington Post and The Washington Post were arrested inside a McDonald’s restaurant while covering protests against the Saturday shooting death of Michael Brown, 18, by police in Ferguson, Missouri. They were released without charges.

Wasn’t Targeted in Tear-Gas Attack

Ironically, a large coalition of press freedom organizations gathered at about the same time as Obama’s statement for a preplanned National Press Club rally asking the Obama administration to drop its pursuit of Risen’s testimony about a confidential source.

Risen says he would rather go to jail than comply. The fight has dragged on for years, and in June the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from Risen’s lawyers seeking a constitutional or common law reporter’s privilege.

Obama’s request that police in Missouri not harass reporters “certainly is hypocritical,” vintage TV personality Phil Donahue, who appeared on a panel of Risen supporters, tells U.S. News.

Supporters of James Risen, right, want Attorney General Eric Holder, left, to back off.

“It’s very bewildering,” Donahue says. “I just don’t get it, especially from a constitutional lawyer.”

Representatives of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, Reporters Without Borders, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, the Government Accountability Project and the Committee to Protect Journalists took turns asking Holder and Obama to back off Risen.

“The Democratic Party has given hope a bad name,” said RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon, whose group delivered to the Department of Justice a pro-Risen petition with more than 125,000 signatures. “This is inherently a political case.”

The CIA operation – detailed in Risen’s 2006 book, “State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration” – fell apart when the Russian scientist hired to deliver the bomb blueprints noticed the flaws and tipped off the Iranians.

It’s unclear what the Department of Justice has in mind for Risen. Earlier this year, Holder and one of his deputies hinted they would not seek jail time, but they have not explicitly ruled out the option.
