The benefits of dollhouses for children

It seems that there are many people who simply think that children’s dollhouses are nothing more than silly toys that children play with. However, while they may be toys, they are toys that come with many different benefits.

One thing that dollhouses for children will do is ensure that children really begin to put their imaginations to work. You might think any old toy could do that, but they’re something special. They allow children to recreate things they have seen and heard at home. You may hear a doll scolding a child for not putting away her toys. If you start listening to the play that takes place with the dollhouse, you may be surprised to recognize much of what is being said. Of course, the child will have the opportunity to take matters into his own hands and play house the way he imagines he would handle his own adult life.

Believe it or not, dollhouses for children also give them the opportunity to learn some socialization skills, both when playing with other children and when playing alone. Even when playing alone with their dollhouses, they learn to express themselves and interact with others by playing certain social instances in their dollhouse.

Also, playing in the dollhouse will help many children to express their thoughts, feelings, worries and happiness. This is easily done because it is not the child’s feelings that are coming out, at least in the child’s eyes, but rather the dolls that are talking. As you can see, there are many great uses for dollhouses. You just have to allow your child to play with it and use it to the best of her ability.

Even if you think your child doesn’t have the best imagination in the world, allowing them to make use of children’s dollhouses is a great idea. And yes, children can play with them too. Perhaps your son wants to play with his sister and could pretend to be the father or son of the house. Also, there are starting to be a lot more dollhouses now that are a bit more gender-neutral than in the past.

Now that you have a little better idea of ​​how great having these can be for your kids, you’ll want to buy one or two. Make sure you take your time and buy the best for your money. Get a quality dollhouse made of sturdy materials so your child can play with it for many years.

Weight cutting techniques for judo

do weight techniques

There are so many different ways to gain weight and sometimes it can be very confusing to know how or what you are going to do. Making the weight can be difficult or easy; it all depends on how you approach it.

Many things must be taken into account when preparing for a competition. This may include dieting before competition, sauna, starvation or moving up a class. In this article I am going to give a brief summary of the different techniques that people use and the theory behind each one. This will not be an article on what exactly to do, it is a summary of the techniques used, to learn more do some research.

Diet before competition

Many people believe in dieting before the competition. To burn off the last ounce of fat so that their entire body weight is all muscle, they typically diet with a low-protein dinner or no dinner at all. To lose weight you must burn MORE calories than you put into your body. Many studies suggest that having 3 meals a day slows down your basal metabolic rate or BMR (metabolism), but by having 6 small meals a day, your BMR always increases, resulting in burning more calories throughout the day.

Depending on how much weight you have to lose, you may need to start dieting 6 weeks before the competition.

Many people find dieting to be the most difficult opponent in judo. Dieting requires constant discipline and control and can be very mentally taxing preparing meals, knowing what to eat and what not to eat, as well as eating enough so that you don’t burn out or get sick.

Low carb diet:

Low carb diets are very popular. There are many versions, but they are all very similar. The same says eat carbs for breakfast and lunch, but none after 2 pm, and a protein dinner, while others say no dinner at all.

A very important rule of thumb when it comes to diet is: ‘if you’re losing weight, don’t change your diet. Once stabilized, change diet.” When dieting, be sure to talk to a professional or do your own research so you’re doing everything right. Experience has shown me that on a low-carb diet I don’t start losing weight for no reason. about 2 weeks so within those 2 weeks I was training like crazy and since I wasn’t losing any weight I was dieting even harder and stricter and I would end up exhausted and get some kind of illness like the flu so listen to your body and adjust your diet accordingly.

The dark side of low carb diets

The human body uses 4 sources of energy, these are fats, carbohydrates, proteins and alcohol. But the brain (the control center of the human body) only uses carbohydrates for energy. It doesn’t use any other source of energy, so if your muscles don’t have energy, your brain doesn’t have it either. This is why on a low carb diet you are tired, lethargic, sleepy and mentally drained. Many athletes don’t like to follow a low-carb diet because you can’t train as hard or for as long on a low-carb diet. This is bad because before a competition you want to be training 100% without feeling tired, exhausted and mentally drained.

Using a low carb diet (and dieting in general) is all about trial and error, the more times you compete and gain weight the better you know how your body reacts and feels.

Low residue diets

Low residue diets (Fiber) are used mainly in the last week or week and a half before the competition. The stomach can hold an average weight of 4kg for a man (75kg) and a girl (60kg) 2kg and it may not take up to 1 week to remove that weight from the stomach. Low fiber diets are not used to flush the stomach, but rather to make sure that what you eat doesn’t stay in your stomach. It goes in and out due to the fact that it contains minimal fiber. These diets are great because you can eat things like white bread, crackers, rice bubbles, etc. and you know they won’t sit in your stomach unnecessarily weighing you down.

Another negative aspect of low fiber diets is the fact that these foods do not contain vitamins and minerals. I recommended to her that on any diet she should take multivitamins and minerals to supplement any that may be missing from her regular diet.


Diuretics are a drug used to remove fluid and food from the body by making you go to the bathroom often. I personally have never used diuretics but I have friends who have used them before. Some athletes take celery tablets and this supposedly makes you go to the bathroom more often.

Another technique that people do is to drink up to 6 liters of water a day for 2 weeks outside of competition and you can imagine how often you would go to the bathroom drinking that amount. Then in the last week they drink as little as possible. The theory behind this is to trick your body into thinking that it is retaining water so that it continues to be eliminated.

I think this is bad for 2 reasons. Your bladder is working too hard and the human body is smarter than that.

Also, 2 weeks after the competition, I would not like to have 2 kg more weight due to excess water, mentally that is not good.

One of the most popular theories is that drinking caffeine dries you out, this is true to a degree. Let me explain: if you drink 1 liter of water, your body can retain 600 ml and therefore excrete 400 ml. Caffeine is a diuretic, which means that if you drink 1 liter, your body will only retain 200 ml and excrete the rest. So people assume that it helps you lose weight, but in reality your body just retains less, that’s all.

This theory is similar to the negative calorie theory with celery.

cutting weight

Cutting weight is the term used when you must sweat and eat as little as possible to gain weight. This is the most common technique used to gain weight not only in judo, but also in wrestling, boxing, and even horse racing. Some athletes can lose up to 6kg in the sauna depending on their weight division and also how much muscle mass they have. The amount of muscle is very important because muscle is 70% water, therefore the more muscle you have, the more water you can lose in the sauna.

There are 4 ways to lose weight in the sauna.

Fully clothed: Some athletes go into the sauna with a lot of clothes on and they sweat that way. This is a great way to warm up quickly, but once you start sweating, your clothes get wet and I think it cools you down, making your skin excrete less sweat.

Work out there: push-ups, boxing, star jumps, you name it. What these athletes don’t understand is that once your body temperature has risen, you start to sweat. These athletes don’t know that once their core temperature rises they will start sweating, it doesn’t just keep rising, once it rises it stays at that level. Sweat can only break out so fast and more exercise will only waste your energy.

I found out that many women can’t lose much weight in the sauna, I recommended these girls to go for a run or exercise in the sauna.

Sitting in swimmers: Sitting in the sauna is, I think, the best way to lose weight. Just sit there and continually wipe all the sweat off your body. This will encourage more sweat to come out.

Baby Oil – Some people put baby oil all over their skin and the theory behind it is to clog the skin pores. This will raise your core temperature, which will result in more sweating. I think this method is stupid because why do you make it difficult for your body to sweat by clogging the pores? Shouldn’t you let the sweat out?

How long do you do sauna?

Some people like to sweat it out in a big hit (it saves money, too), but if you have a little to lose and don’t mind paying, try losing weight in a couple of days. For example, if I fight on Sunday, I’ll do a little sauna on Friday and then I’ll sit arvo and maybe if I’m lucky and underweight, I’ll have something for dinner. It all depends on the athlete and how comfortable he is doing it the way he wants.

I don’t lose weight in the sauna?

I don’t know why, but some women just don’t lose weight in the sauna. For these people I recommend buying a sauna suit and going for a run or a bike ride or something. Just fix yourself and do it, maybe these girls need to go and exercise in the sauna that can help them.

Can’t find a sauna?

If you can’t find a sauna, here are a couple of options.

– Put on lots of layers of winter clothing and go for a run or sit on an exercise bike and ride hard.

– Put on the mat and sit in a car with the heating on full blast.

– Turn on the hot shower in the bathroom and let it get nice and steamy, sit there and get sweaty. (Just don’t burn yourself).

– Sitting in a hot bath and sweating like that.

Should I move up a weight division?

If you’re sick of gaining weight and sauna and everything else, just move up a weight division. It all depends on what you want to do in judo. Are you a recreational or competitive gamer, even then what are your goals? Can you move up a weight division and still be competitive internationally, if not nationally? It all depends on what you want from judo.

Some athletes, especially heavyweights, can afford to give up some weight, as long as they are faster than their heavier opponents. For example, Kurt Angle gave away around 10 kg when he wrestled. Another example is the heavyweight girl from Slovenia. She fights +78 and only weighs 85 kg. She is so fast and strong that she placed second in the 2007 open world championships.

To learn more about the different ways to pull the weight, ask some of the older competitors how they did the weight. Also do some research on the internet and find what is best for you, remember that trial and error is the only way to hone the weight comfortably.

I hope this report has helped you think about how you will approach the problem of weight gain next time.

The history of the martini

The venerable Martini. Perhaps the most famous cocktail and, without a doubt, the mixed drink with more myths, stories and traditions. It’s also the cocktail that has a following and its own brand of snobbery. You don’t usually see two people arguing over a Planters Punch.

The basic martini recipe is as simple as you can get. Traditionally, a Martini is made with gin and dry white vermouth, although recently the Vodka Martini has become much more popular. The standard modern martini is five parts gin or vodka to one part vermouth, though few bartenders today would follow that model. The ingredients are shaken or stirred with ice, filtered and served “straight” without ice in a chilled cocktail glass and garnished with an olive.

Martini purists are upset that vodka is now the spirit of choice when people order a martini. They insist that it should be called ‘Vodka Martini’ or, if they are very picky, ‘Bradford’.

The amount of vermouth to add is also a matter of great debate. The less vermouth, the drier the Martini. Today the most common way to mix vermouth is to coat the ice cubes in vermouth and then throw away the leftover vermouth. Some progressive bars now use vermouth sprays to cover the ice (thus saving a lot of vermouth).

Shake or stir?

According to the true Martini drinker, because vermouth mixes easily and evenly with its solvent (gin or vodka), a martini should always be mixed in a shaker glass. For the purists, shaking “bruises” the gin and also chips the ice when diluting the Martini.

However, thanks to novel and movie spy James Bond, who ordered his “Shaken Not Stirred” Martinis, the Martini is shaken more often these days.

Shake aficionados say that, as with Scotch, a little water creates a rounder flavor. They also claim that the stirring action adds oxygen to the drink and sharpens the flavor and distributes the vermouth more evenly.


The generally accepted origin of the Martini begins in San Francisco in 1862. A cocktail named after the nearby town of Martinez was served at the Hotel Occidental. People drank at the hotel before taking the afternoon ferry to Martinez across the bay. The original cocktail consisted of two ounces of “Martini and Rosso” Italian sweet vermouth, one ounce of Old Tom sweet gin, two drops of maraschino cherry liquid, a dash of bitters, shaken and served with a lemon wedge. By the end of the 19th century, the Martini had morphed into a simpler form. Two dashes of orange bitters were mixed with half a jigger of dry French vermouth and half a jigger of dry English gin, stirred and served with an olive.

But it was Prohibition and the relative ease of illegal gin manufacturing that led to the rise of the Martini as the predominant cocktail of the mid-20th century.

With the repeal of Prohibition and the easy availability of quality gin, the drink became progressively drier and less vermouth was added.

The first reference to the use of vodka in a Martini was in the 1950s, but it was Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels and subsequent films that raised the profile of the vodka martini in the 1960s. In the novel Casino Royale , Bond’s recipe for his “vespa martini” consisted of three parts Gordon’s gin, one part Russian vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet aperitif, shaken until icy cold, served with a lemon wedge. In the second Bond novel, Live and Let Die, Bond drank conventional vodka martinis.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the martini was considered old-fashioned and was replaced by more elaborate cocktails and wine sodas. But the mid-1990s saw a resurgence for the drink and an explosion of new versions. These new specialty martinis can be made with combinations of fresh fruit juices, splashes of cream, and brightly colored liqueurs.

Instead of the traditional olives, onion cocktail or lemon twist, new garnishes such as marinated capers, fresh herbs, coffee beans or sun-dried tomatoes are used.

Today, the Martini in all its versions has returned to its position as the world’s quintessential cocktail.


The Martini comes with its own folklore and many former martini drinkers have their own recipes for creating the perfect Martini or the driest. The search for dryness has taken on strange proportions.

Winston Churchill’s recipe called for pouring gin into a glass and then simply bowing in the direction of France. Alfred Hitchcock’s recipe called for five parts gin and a quick glance at a bottle of vermouth. Ernest Hemingway liked to order a “Montgomery,” which was a martini mixed in a 15:1 gin:vermouth ratio, the odds Quarterback Montgomery would supposedly want before going into battle.

In the 1958 film Teacher’s Pet, Clark Gable mixes a martini by upending the vermouth bottle, then running the moistened cork around the rim of the glass before filling it with gin.

The classic 1970s TV show MASH satirically attacked this dryness fetish. ‘Hawkeye’, working at his still, tells his fellow military medics: “I am pursuing my lifelong quest for the perfect martini, the absolute driest to be found on this or any other world. And I believe I can to have come up with the perfect formula”. …he pours six glasses of gin and drinks it while looking at a photo of Lorenzo Schwartz, (the inventor of vermouth).”

Juvenile Sentencing in the United States

Should minors be sentenced to life imprisonment?

The United States, as I understand it, is the only country in the world that sentences minors; that is, those under eighteen years of age to life in prison without parole. This was challenged in court about ten years ago when the Supreme Court declared that it is unconstitutional to sentence juveniles to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Teenagers are basically the same all over the world. They have the same kinds of social, physical, and emotional issues to deal with, but their environment can make or break them. It is this environment that may be the determining factor of where they end up. Given the right encouragement and the right tools, they can do amazing things that will set their lives on the right track; However, things happen that derail their hopes and dreams.

Adolescents around the world appear in court for various reasons, with murder being the most extreme charge, but after serving a sentence of a set number of years, they are released subject to certain conditions. One of them is that the authorities are convinced that there is no risk to the public. They, except on rare occasions, cherish their freedom and live their lives as law-abiding human beings.

People can and do change their lives so that at the age of thirty they are completely different people than they were when they were fifteen. I have read that the human brain does not fully develop until the age of twenty-five. The American justice system does not seem to take this into account and charges them as adults, but to all intents and purposes they are minors; even US law classifies them as minors.

Keeping people locked up serves no useful purpose and the motivation for wanting to keep another human being in prison can only be retribution, which is the revenge mentality. “I want him or her to pay for what they did.” I think a person with that kind of mindset is choosing to be a victim and it’s pretty sad to be known to have influenced the judge to keep a criminal locked up.

There’s a case in Florida where a fourteen-year-old boy killed an eight-year-old girl. He appeared before the judge to re-sentence after the Supreme Court ruled that life imprisonment was unconstitutional but after pressure from the relatives of the deceased, the judge ruled that he must remain in prison. The young man was now in his late thirties and a completely different person compared to that fourteen year old boy.

One only has to question the mindset of people who see the worst in another human being.

A young woman, also from Florida, killed a sixty-eight-year-old man and stole his truck when she was fifteen. She received a sentence of life without parole, but you know what was the most pathetic aspect of this case?

It was that she committed this crime with her boyfriend of twenty-one years.

Pathetic because there was never any mention of her alleged adult co-defendant leading her off track. The justice system never seems to take this factor into account, however, under the law, a person under the age of eighteen is classified as a minor.

In 2007, a young woman named Erin Caffey, then sixteen, conspired to kill her family because her parents disapproved of her then-boyfriend, Charlie, who was nineteen. It wasn’t just the age difference, but the things Erin was doing. Her family was a devout church-going family, and they were all part of the worship team at the church they attended in Texas. Charlie’s friend and her girlfriend participated in a barbaric massacre in which Erin’s mother, Penny Caffey, and her two brothers were killed, while her father, Terry, survived to tell the tale.

The two boys who committed the murder received a sentence of life without parole, Erin’s friend received twenty years, while Erin herself is not eligible for parole until 2038.

My opinion is that Erin should have been treated more fairly considering her young age; I mean the fact that Erin planned all the murders should have been treated differently than if she had done all the murder herself. Erin was the only minor in this foursome, so who is responsible for the actions of the other three? Certainly not Erin.

I first learned about this case in 2017 after watching a TV show about Criminal Investigation. I started a letter writing campaign for Erin the next day and it continued throughout 2018 and into 2019, but I did not receive a single response to all the letters I posted in the White House on this matter, but I did receive one letter from the own Erin. She introduces herself as a bubbly young woman who receives visits from her dad; If you read correctly, her father forgave her daughter.


Don’t Kick the Cat – Teachable Moment

The story of kicking the cat is about a person having a bad day and passing those negative feelings on to others. He says like this: Jim is angry because the morning traffic has made him late for work. Shortly after arriving at work, he starts yelling at his assistant about a report he needs. Alice the assistant calls the manager who didn’t turn in the report on time. In a very forceful manner, Alice tells the manager to give her the report right away. Jack the manager is very upset but complies. Jack is still angry when he walks into his house after work. Unfortunately, the unsuspecting cat walks through the front door just as Jack walks in. Kick! * The cat did nothing wrong, but it took the brunt of the bad day as it passed from Jim to Alice to Jack and finally to the cat. Why?

What if they had compartmentalized their negative feelings and not passed their anger onto others throughout the day? Often when someone is having a bad day, they look to share the load. If there is a legitimate concern, then by all means handle the situation. However, many times these concerns are not legitimate.

They are simply annoying attempts by someone trying to get attention, bring drama to the room, or show that they have some perceived power. Recognize negative feelings for what they are. If they are legitimate, act accordingly, but don’t pass the negative thoughts on to others. If they are simply attempts to kick the cat, then you should be the person to stop the negativity.

Ideas for implementation

  1. Observe when people get angry and see how they handle those feelings.
  2. The next time you get upset about something, examine your reactions.

Discussion Topics:

  1. Think of a recent event that upset you. Was your response appropriate to the event or did you overreact?
  2. Why did you react that way?
  3. What will you do differently next time?

Good luck! You are a winner! *I paraphrased this story from Zig Ziglar, one of the world’s leading motivational speakers. It weaves homespun humor and inspiring stories to provide you with valuable life lessons. I encourage you to get the CD from him. Visit

5 Secret Steps Of Bonded Note Under UCC And Other Federal Laws

The bonded note pays off your debts and creates debts for you under UCC and other federal laws. You already know that your mortgage note and mortgage contract put you in debt when you bought your home or commercial property, so we’ll focus on the secrets of the secured note to get you out of debt in the next article. The secrets are:

All products of the economic system are prepaid by virtue of public policy Law (PL 73-10)that no longer exists constitutionally, article 8 and 10, authorizing gold and silver money to “pay” in law with. You have the right to cancel any public or private debt since June 1933. The bonded note can be used to offset any debt. The IRS recognizes bonds as a form of payment. The instrument delivered to the bank and negotiated with the United States Treasury for liquidation is a “Obligation of THE UNITED STATES, BANKRUPTCY” under Title 18 USC Section 8which represents a “certificate of debt… issued in the name of an authorized official of the United States”, and in this case, the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.

History of Bulova watches

From the days when the only clocks available marked the sun to pocket watch hours and right up to the present day, people have always been obsessed with keeping track of time. Like any other profession, the watch industry has worked hard to improve the methods they use and the quality of the products they put on the market. The general public has seen watches transition from traditional balance-spring and balance technology to more advanced quartz, and eventually to the creation of purely digital timepieces. Each advancement was designed to outperform the competition and bring people the very best in wristwatches.

There have been many famous watch companies and makers, but one of the most famous is the Bulova Watch Company. Over the years, this company has built a reputation for luxury and precision in its watch products. A bit of backstory makes the story that much more interesting. As with many companies, the history of the Bulova watch company begins modestly. A young man named Joseph Bulova opens a humble little jewelry store in New York City on Maiden Lane. The year is 1875, and he is a 23-year-old Czech immigrant in the US. Business is doing very well, but there is nothing to get excited about until 1911 when this young entrepreneur begins making and selling bedroom and mantel clocks. , and finely crafted pocket watches. The public reacts positively to new items and booming sales at an astonishing rate.

The Bulova Watch Company did not stop there. Its owner knew something good when he saw it and in 1912, the first plant dedicated to the production of his incredible timepieces was opened in Bienne, Switzerland. This plant focused on the production of the watch components and the placement of the assemblies into the final jeweled movements. All of this took place before the advent of conventional wristwatches as we know them today.

Mr. Bulova did not have to wait long. With the start of World War I, the popularity of wristwatches, as opposed to pocket watches, took off. It was much easier for troops to literally have their watches close at hand than hidden in a pocket. Once again, the Bulova Company was there to deliver what the public demanded. Joseph Bulova went a step further and designed a line of men’s watches set in jeweled cases. Considering that his first passion was jewelry, it makes sense that he would make this innovative move. It was the year 1919 and the world group posed for the most extravagant watches.

As the story tells us, the path from this point for Mr. Bulova and his company is paved with gold. In 1923 the name Bulova Watch Company, Inc. is established. The world of watches is revolutionized again with the beginning of a precision watch part manufacturing system that makes every Bulova watch compatible with every other make or model of watch Bulova bracelet. In other words, watch repair became much simpler and more cost effective because repair personnel could use any part of any Bulova watch to repair another. That kind of attention to detail has never been seen before.

Just one year later, the Bulova Watch Company finally remembers the ladies. Introducing a full line of women’s diamond-accented watches. It was the “Roaring Twenties” and the people of the time were all luxury and beautiful things. A Bulova watch fits the bill.

The Bulova Watch Company continued to take advantage of the events happening around them and made sure to keep up to date. For example, to honor Charles Lindbergh’s famous solo transatlantic flight, the company produced a series of Lone Eagle watches packaged with an image of the famous pilot. The company ships 5,000 of these commemorative watches. The supply ran out in 3 days. In total, 50,000 Charles Lindbergh watches were sold. It was this kind of forward thinking that made the company the huge success that it was and is.

In 1935 the founder of the company, Joseph Bulova, died. Despite this sad event, the company continued on its upward path. In the early 1960s, the Bulova Watch Company’s biggest claim to fame is released to the world. It was a totally unique watch called the Accutron. This watch was made using tuning fork technology. It kept time better than anything done to date and was used on many NASA flights, including the famous Apollo expedition.

With such a productive and colorful history, it’s no wonder that the Bulova Watch Company continues to be a stellar example of customer service and watchmaking innovation.

Top 12 Tips for Writing a Dissertation

Very often, when PhD candidates complete their theses, they look for an editor to provide guidance on the structure and organization of their writing. Such guidance can range from the document or chapter level to the individual clause level and includes the correction of typographical and grammatical errors. However, no matter how capable your dissertation editor is, your dissertation will be stronger if you consider the following tips early on during your PhD studies.

Selection of a thesis topic

1. Find a topic that you like and are interested in. Choose a topic that you can live with, constantly think about, and even dream about for a few years. By the time you complete the dissertation, you should be, at least for a brief time, the world’s foremost expert on your subject. To reach that goal, you need to care enough about your topic to become deeply invested in it and want to know everything about it.

2. Start thinking about your dissertation topic from the very beginning of your studies. Each course you take will require you to submit a paper or some type of project. Try to make an original point on the subject in each paper or project you submit. Doing so may result in a viable thesis topic. Consider each available topic you can write about in terms of whether you could live with that topic for an extended period of time, whether it fits with your long-term career goals, and whether you would really have something original to say on the subject. .

3. When considering original research topics for your dissertation, don’t overlook the possibility of synthesizing sub-disciplines. It is not unusual to find two different disciplines or sub-disciplines tackling the same problem in different domains or with different methodologies. Would using a completely different methodology from another field reveal any new information about your area of ​​interest? Can you build a bridge or make connections between the findings of separate sub-disciplines and see your topic in a new light?

Take charge of your learning

4. When taking classes and reading assignments, take note of every term, concept, and reference to other work with which you are unfamiliar. Then take the time to learn about unfamiliar ideas. Unfortunately, many people do not learn to be true lifelong learners during their college studies. If you haven’t learned how to facilitate your own learning and intellectual growth before now, now is the time to learn this crucial skill. The ability to recognize gaps in your own knowledge and take action to strengthen your areas of weakness is a mark of a person with a strong education.

5. Learn all you can about research methods in your discipline. Although research methods are broadly divided into quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods, within those general areas there are many specific submethods. Understand the methodology that is typically used in the subdiscipline you are focusing on and how it compares to other methodologies you might use. Learn to use the terminology correctly by making it part of your everyday vocabulary.

6. When conducting research on your selected topic, work to understand and evaluate all aspects of the issues, both in terms of the research methods used and in terms of theories related to your area of ​​interest. Keep an open mind when you read points of view that conflict with your own, think clearly why you disagree with the author’s position, and construct clear and specific arguments that directly address the points you disagree with. Again, understand and learn to use the terminology correctly.

7. If you are going to use statistics, consider taking a statistics course or at least invest in a good statistics textbook. Learn to speak and write about statistics correctly and knowledgeably. Being able to input numbers into SAS or another software program and then run a function is not the same as understanding statistics. For your use of statistics to be meaningful and professional, you must understand and be able to speak knowledgeably about population selection, the use of variables and forms of measurement, the appropriate equations for your analytical purposes, and what has actually happened. “found”. ” or “revealed” as a result of the method(s) applied. You should be able to explain why you are entering certain numbers, where those numbers come from and what they represent, why a certain statistical function is used, and what the results indicate about your topic. Practice the Apply your knowledge of statistics whenever you read about a study that used quantitative data.

Organize, organize, organize!

8. Establish a good organization system for your library of articles and books from the beginning of your graduate studies. If you have hard copies of articles, invest in a small filing cabinet and folders and file articles by topic, sub-discipline, or author name. Use a system that makes sense to you. If you can’t decide how to file a particular item, use a note system within your filing system to indicate the location of a file. For example, if you have an article about research done on the effectiveness of using live chat in online learning, but the article begins with an informative discussion of the methodology used, you may want to file the article with others who address research on the effectiveness of using live chat, but, in folders containing information on methodology and online learning in general, note the location of this file. (Write short, clear notes on the inside covers of the binder or on sticky notes attached to the inside covers.)

9. Learn and use good file management on your computer. Many articles today are available in PDF format. Such files can be searched by key terms, but you can’t search an article if you can’t find it. Learn how to create folders on your computer and nest them. For example, a folder on online learning might contain folders on specific theories that address online learning, as well as tools that can be used to facilitate online learning.

10. As part of your file management, start creating a spreadsheet file (or a database if you have the software and technical knowledge) of all the articles, books, web pages, and videos you’ve found. For books that contain chapters written by different authors, create an entry for each chapter. Along with author names (ALL author names) and titles, include the date, publication information, article and chapter pages, original publication information (if applicable), main points about the source (thesis statement, research methods used) and the location of the article in your filing system.

For example, “Paper-E-Learning-Live Chat” would indicate that the item is a hard copy in your filing cabinet in the Live Chat folder in the Online Learning area or drawer, and “PDF-E-Learning- transcript-quantitative analysis” would indicate that you have a file on your computer in the transcript analysis folder which is located within the quantitative methods folder within the online learning folder. If you accessed the item online, be sure to record the DOI (preferred for most documentation styles) or URL of the pages or PDFs on the websites. You may also want a field indicating the various subtopics that the source touches on. (For example, an article on the use of live chat in online learning can also be marked as information on quantitative research methods and constructivist learning theory.)

Know your documentation style

11. At the beginning of your research process, determine the style of documentation that you will use. Your school or graduate program may require a particular style, or you are free to choose your own. If you can select one of your own, learn the style most commonly used in your discipline. If the option is still open, choose an author-date style (end-of-document citations and in-text parenthetical citations) because it’s the easiest to use, takes the least amount of time, and is easy to review.

12. Once you know what style of documentation you will use for your dissertation, purchase the appropriate manual and use it as often as possible for written class assignments. Note that “documentation” styles include much more than just how sources are cited. They often specify how numbers should be treated in the text, how tables and figures are displayed, how sources are referenced (eg, APA requires past tense when writing about a source, while literary works quotes in MLA are usually written in the present tense). ), and even which prefixes are hyphenated and which types of phrases are separated by hyphens. Getting familiar with the documentation style before you start writing the dissertation will make your writing process much easier. Again, being thoroughly familiar with your discipline’s documentation style is a sign of a strong education.

Taking the time to consider these tips early in your graduate studies can make the process of writing your dissertation more seamless and strengthen the integrity of your paper. Tips 4-12 can actually save you time when you go into that time-intensive period of writing parts of your dissertation and passing them on to your committee for feedback. These tips can also help you avoid embarrassment resulting from the types of comments your committee members might make.

The stronger your dissertation is before you submit it to a dissertation editing service, the better your final product will be. The various subtopics that the source touches on. (For example, an article on the use of live chat in online learning can also be marked as information on quantitative research methods and constructivist learning theory.)
