Creative Industries  6/20/2016

Wikipedia

The creative industries refers to a range of economic activities which are concerned with the generation or exploitation of knowledge and information.

They may variously also be referred to as the cultural industries (especially in Europe (Hesmondhalgh 2002, p. 14)) or the creative economy (Howkins 2001), and most recently they have been denominated as the Orange Economy in Latin America and the Caribbean (Buitrago & Duque 2013).

Howkins' creative economy comprises advertising, architecture, art, crafts, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts, publishing, R&D, software, toys and games, TV and radio, and video games (Howkins 2001, pp. 88–117).

Some scholars consider that education industry, including public and private services, is forming a part of creative industry.

There remain, therefore, different definitions of the sector (Hesmondhalgh 2002, p. 12)(DCMS 2006).

Yet so far Howkins has not been internationally recognized.

The creative industries have been seen to become increasingly important to economic well-being, proponents suggesting that "human creativity is the ultimate economic resource," (Florida 2002, p. xiii) and that “the industries of the twenty-first century will depend increasingly on the generation of knowledge through creativity and innovation" (Landry & Bianchini 1995, p. 4).

Study skills  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Study skills

or study strategies are approaches applied to learning.

They are generally critical to success in school, considered essential for acquiring good grades, and useful for learning throughout one's life.

Respicius Rwehumbiza in his book Understanding Examination Techniques and Effective study Strategies in 2013 asserted that most students fail in examinations simply because they lack study skills and/or examination taking techniques.

Study skills are an array of skills which tackle the process of organizing and taking in new information, retaining information, or dealing with assessments.

They include mnemonics, which aid the retention of lists of information; effective reading; concentration techniques; and efficient notetaking.

While often left up to the student and their support network, study skills are increasingly taught in high school and at the university level.

A number of books and websites are available, from works on specific techniques such as Tony Buzan's books on mind-mapping to general guides to successful study such as those by Stella Cottrell and Understanding Examination Techniques and Effective study Strategies by Respicius Rwehumbiza.

More broadly, any skill which boosts a person's ability to study, retain and recall information which assists in and passing exams can be termed a study skill, and this could include time management and motivational techniques.

Study skills are discrete techniques that can be learned, usually in a short time, and applied to all or most fields of study.

They must therefore be distinguished from strategies that are specific to a particular field of study e.g. music or technology, and from abilities inherent in the student, such as aspects of intelligence or learning styles.

Study Environment

Studying can also be more effective if one changes their environment while studying.

For example: the first time studying the material, one can study in a bedroom, the second time one can study outside, and the final time one can study in a coffee shop.

The thinking behind this is that as when an individual changes their environment the brain associates different aspects of the learning and gives a stronger hold and additional brain pathways with which to access the information.

In this context environment can mean many things; from location, to sounds, to smells, to other stimuli including foods.

When discussing environment in regards to its affect on studying and retention Carey says “a simple change in venue improved retrieval strength (memory) by 40 percent.”

Another change in the environment can be background music; if people study with music playing and they are able to play the same music during test time they will recall more of the information they studied.

According to Carey “background music weaves itself subconsciously into the fabric of stored memory.”

This “distraction” in the background helps to create more vivid memories with the studied material.


Daydream  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Daydream

Daydreaming is a short-term detachment from one's immediate surroundings, during which a person's contact with reality is blurred and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake.

There are many types of daydreams, and there is no consistent definition amongst psychologists, however the haracteristic that is common to all forms of daydreaming meets the criteria for mild dissociation.

Daydream Believer  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Daydream Believer

"Daydream Believer" is a song composed by John Stewart shortly before he left the Kingston Trio.

The song was originally recorded by The Monkees, with Davy Jones singing lead vocals.

The single hit the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 1967, remaining there for four weeks, and peaked at number five in the UK Singles Chart.

It was the Monkees' last number one hit in the U.S.

In 1979, "Daydream Believer" was recorded by Canadian singer Anne Murray, whose version reached number three on the U.S. country singles chart and number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song has been recorded by others including a 1971 version by John Stewart.

Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings of the bluebird as she sings
The six o'clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise wipe the sleep out of my eyes
The shavin' razor's cold, and it stings

Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

You once thought of me as a white knight on his steed
Now you know how happy I can be
Oh, and our good times start and end without dollar one to spend
But how much baby do we really need?
Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?
Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?
Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

Manual Labour  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Manual Labour

Manual labour (in British English, manual labor in American English) or manual work is physical work done by people, most especially in contrast to that done by machines, and to that done by working animals.

It is most literally work done with the hands (the word "manual" comes from the Latin word for hand), and, by figurative extension, it is work done with any of the muscles and bones of the body.

For most of human prehistory and history, manual labour and its close cousin, animal labour, have been the primary ways that physical work has been accomplished.

Mechanisation and automation, which reduce the need for human and animal labour in production, have existed for centuries, but it was only starting in the 19th century that they began to significantly expand and to change human culture.

To be implemented, they require that sufficient technology exist and that its capital costs be justified by the amount of future wages that they will obviate.

Although nearly any work can potentially have skill and intelligence applied to it, many jobs that mostly comprise manual labour—such as fruit and vegetable picking, manual materials handling (for example, shelf stocking), manual digging, or manual assembly of parts—often may be done successfully (if not masterfully) by unskilled or semiskilled workers.

Thus there is a partial but significant correlation between manual labour and unskilled or semiskilled workers.

Based on economic and social conflict of interest, people may often distort that partial correlation into an exaggeration that equates manual labour with lack of skill; with lack of any potential to apply skill (to a task) or to develop skill (in a worker); and with low social class.

Throughout human existence the latter has involved a spectrum of variants, from slavery (with stigmatisation of the slaves as "subhuman"), to caste or caste-like systems, to subtler forms of inequality.

Economic competition often results in businesses trying to buy labour at the lowest possible cost (for example, through offshoring or by employing foreign workers) or to obviate it entirely (through mechanisation and automation).

Skilled Labour  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Silled Labour

A skilled worker is any worker who has special skill, training, knowledge, and (usually acquired) ability in their work.

A skilled worker may have attended a college, university or technical school. Or, a skilled worker may have learned their skills on the job.

Examples of skilled labor include software development, paramedics, police officers, physicians, crane operators, painters, plumbers, craftsmen, and accountants.

These workers can be either blue-collar or white-collar workers, with varied levels of training or education.

Wage Labour  6/20/2016

Wikipedia Wage Labour

Wage labour (also wage labor in American English) is the socioeconomic relationship between a worker and an employer, where the worker sells their labour under a formal or informal employment contract.

These transactions usually occur in a labour market where wages are market determined.

In exchange for the wages paid, the work product generally becomes the undifferentiated property of the employer, except for special cases such as the vesting of intellectual property patents in the United States where patent rights are usually vested in the employee personally responsible for the invention.

A wage labourer is a person whose primary means of income is from the selling of his or her labour in this way.

In modern mixed economies such as those of the OECD countries, it is currently the most common form of work arrangement.

Although most labour is organised as per this structure, the wage work arrangements of CEOs, professional employees, and professional contract workers are sometimes conflated with class assignments, so that "wage labour" is considered to apply only to unskilled, semi-skilled or manual labour.
