The MemoryLifter tool allows you to create your own distractors. In order to do this you have to go to Maintain Cards and choose the Synonym Mode in the Answer field (see green arrow). Then you type in the key (Cinderella) and the distractors (Dorothee and Daisy). To define the distractors you just have to right-click on them and select Distractor.

Is bigger really better?

Have you ever heard of "Giant Finn"? This story, based on an Irish legend, tells about a giant with a red beard, called Giant Finn, who believes that he is the biggest and strongest giant in town. One day, however, another giant with a black beard arrives from another area. This rival is said to have as much strength in his finger as ten men have altogether. Finn is afraid of the rival and wants to escape a fight.

Leitner Box System

The MemoryLifter uses a slightly modified version of the Leitner box system, but the basic concept is the same. Here, all cards are pulled from the so-called pool which contains all available cards at first. To customize the software to your individual needs you can see and edit the box sizes. For this you select Show/Edit Box Sizes... in the Learn menu.

Thank you for the music: How does music affect our memory?

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.

LiON-FONe-BeBC

Have you ever heard of LiON-FONe-BeBC? No, it's not a hotline for lions provided by the BBC. It's a self-made acronym that helped me recall the second row elements of the periodic table in our Chemistry class and stands for "Lithium, Oxygen" If you ever have to memorize facts, look at the keywords of the facts and their first letters. Then scramble them until you get a pronounceable expression that makes sense to you. This mnemonic strategy is quite easy and effective try it!

Ali Baba and the forty thieves: How can Yoga lead to a happy end

As an experienced brain, I can tell you that your body is not that much different from a battery. If you're flat, you have got to be recharged with energy in order to work efficiently. May sound logical, but a whole lot of people are not aware of this. Although my boss is a smart guy (of course he is, with a brain like me), he needed quite a bit of time until he realized that he needed to learn to relax properly.

Learning: What's love got to do with it?

Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day:
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear;
Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree:
Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.
