The MemoryLifter community board

In this issue we would like to introduce you to our community forum. The forum enables you to ask questions, get advice and exchange thoughts and ideas with other learners. We present a screenshot of a thread with content that could be of interest to you. A user is looking for a Japanese module. Our MemoryLifter Content Manager recommends a community module. This raises the question of how to place your own modules on our flashcard platform.

All's Well That Ends Well

It is almost impossible, even for me, to plan a project down to the last detail. My team and I, we have learned by experience that almost every project requires a certain amount of luck, spontaneity, flexibility and the open-mindedness to learn new things. Although we have a great team with highly skilled reindeers and elves, unexpected things can happen. However, sometimes such problems can result in very enriching intercultural friendships...

The fog

The story I am about to tell you happened to a friend of mine, Sam Lamar. Sam is a software engineer and many consider him a genius in his field. Well, it was a chilly October evening and Sam was on his way home from a conference. He was driving along the coast, when, all of a sudden, his car entered a heavy fog bank. Sam turned on the fog lights and inadvertently thought about the tragic death of his pet hamster, Aldridge, who escaped from his cage and was run over by a truck last May. "Oh Aldridge," he sighed. But Sam couldn't afford to allow this sad memory to distract him, because he had to focus all of his attention on the road. The fog was growing thicker and thicker, and even the strong fog lights of Sam's car couldn't cut the heavy mist anymore. "What is this?" Sam thought to himself. "The fog isn't normally this thick around here."

Ready for a snooze?

Woman or man, boy or girl - with MemoryLifter you can learn efficiently and without stress. For this reason MemoryLifter provides an automated learning planner. This feature acts like a learning alarm clock to regularly quiz you and help you remember information faster and longer. If you are busy and want to pause while learning, you can activate the Snooze Mode (Tools->Snooze Mode), and MemoryLifter will go away for a specified amount of time and then popup to start again. To specify this amount of time open the Learning Options menu and click the "Snooze/Quit Planner" tab. Then select "After a specific time (min)" and type in the amount of minutes into the "Snooze and popup every" textboxes. Confirm with OK.

Somewhere over the rainbow...

If we have to cope with a problem, we are sometimes told to sleep on it, i.e. to put off our decision until the next morning. People tend to believe that the brain continues to nag at a problem during sleep, or that after sleep the brain has more energy to cope with the problem...
