Cognitive Ease: Tips for Presenters

There’s a pretty cool concept that can benefit both presenters and designers. It’s called cognitive ease. Basically, it’s your brain’s continuum between easy and strained. It deals with how easy or difficult it is process information. In his New York Times Bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman outlines research which shows just how much this neurological concept affects us. For instance, the degree to which we feel cognitive ease or strain is linked to whether or not we believe so...

Self-Talk: The Key To Being Calm and Confident

Two students stayed after class yesterday to talk to me about how nervous they were to give their first presentations. One of them was particularly distraught. She said, “I don’t think I can do this. Being up in front of an audience is just so nerve-racking. I’m afraid I’ll make a fool of myself.” Her friend gave her a reassuring pat on the arm and simply said, “I’m sure it will be okay.” Both students were facing the same assignment. But they had drastically different outlooks. Research tells u...

Schneider’s EVLink car charging stations were easily hackable, thanks to a hardcoded password

Schneider has fixed three vulnerabilities in one of its popular electric car charging stations, which security researchers said could have easily allowed an attacker to remotely take over the unit. At its worst, an attacker can force a plugged-in vehicle to stop charging, rendering it useless in a “denial-of-service state,” an attack favored by some threat actors as it’s an effective way of forcing something to stop working. The bugs were fixed with a software update that rolled out on September...

Is the Game Rigged Against You?

All of us know this person. We have all seen him in our workplace. We may have even seen him in ourselves many a time. It is none other than the person who gives up on life and keeps floating to survive. As human beings, we have a deep-rooted belief that life should always be fair to us.

But there’s an opposite side to this coin, and not is all as it appears: a growing resistance, scores of good folks recognizing what’s at stake and doubling down on their efforts ...

How Do You Ask Questions?

The answer you get depends on how you ask a question Image Credit: Véronique Debord-Lazaro One of the most powerful tools that a public speaker has is the question. Sure, despite the importance of public speaking our speeches are pretty much one sided affairs – we get up in front of an audience and we talk and they listen. However, when you incorporate a question into your speech all of a sudden you are now involving your audience. When you ask a question, your audience has to come up with ...

How Complaining Can Alter Our Perception

It is intuitive that a negative attitude and constant complaining are bad for us, but can it really affect our brain? It turns out that there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that negativity can alter our perception of life by changing the connection of the neurons in our brain. This would then result in increased stress levels, which is linked to chronic diseases and mental health problems. A common perception of complaining or “venting” is that people feel better after getting their em...

Early Sobriety: 4 Tips to Rebuild Family Relationships

Although achieving the first steps on the path of recovery from addiction is a personally powerful experience, coming face to face with the damage to family left behind and the amends that need to be made can be overwhelming. When my head cleared up in the first months of recovery and I became truly aware of how much I had hurt my family, I did not know if the ruins in my wake could be cleaned up. I did not know if those bridges could ever be repaired. I soon realized, however, that rebuildi...
