I remembered in June 2009, I attended my first 21-day transformative programme called Inner Awakening with Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) and there was one powerful session he initiated us was “Memory”. From this one initiation, I got a big click that I no longer allow any forced memory into my system, I only work out of inspirations and passion.
We can see that the children today are being forced to remember too much information which is not required for their lives such that they are suffering from the mental stress and mental fatigue. Through the master’s compassion and his guidance, the eN-Memory Programme is his gift to the children which is based on the curriculum of his Gurukul (Vedic school) in his ashram.
The Vedic Science of enhancing memory power is now available in a big way, we just need to start creating awareness among parents, educators and policy makers. Teo Siew Yong draws from over a decade's worth of experience in the Vedic healing arts of Yoga and Mediation to share the sacred knowledge and experiences of self healing and self discovery with people who are ready to look within.

The recent presidential debates have not dealt with in any depth the most important long-term issue facing the country – education. The terrible battle in Wisconsin over teachers’ collective bargaining rights, and of the teachers’ strike in Chicago over a host of issues, prominently, seniority issues, are symptoms of our concerns, but they are not focused on what’s wrong.
The results should have been embarrassing for the United States, although I’d guess that very few in this country paid any attention. Shanghai swept to first place by far in all three exams, with Finland, South Korea and Singapore coming in second in science, reading and math, respectively. When a student enters high school and subsequently drops out, there is a terrible waste of a life unfulfilled and public expense in educating that person. According the US Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 3.7 million job openings available as of July 2012*. I believe it’s fair to say that schools of education largely teach the technology of education, that is they teach one how to teach. David McCullough, perhaps our greatest living historian was just interviewed on CBS’ 60 Minutes. President Bill Clinton recently pointed out that people who have an ideology tend to bend the facts to fit their ideology instead of seeking the truth. There are and always have been any number of excellent public and private schools in the United States. Many states have dropped out of the program, citing either financial exigencies, a lack of cost-effectiveness, or both. Everyone knows that some schools are truly excellent, with great teachers, enthusiastic and hard-working students, and excellent outcomes. Online courses such as Kahn Academy and many others allow students to learn at their own pace, be it faster or slower. Finally I want to spend some time discussing why I believe science should form the basis of all education.
So it makes sense to build on this natural passion for understanding in order to construct a formal education. Let me tell you about the best program I’ve seen yet, one that I was intimately involved with at one time (I was chairman of its Advisory Board for several years). The SSEC has now implemented K-12 programs in 1,200 school districts in the United States affecting some 30% of all students. After the war in Vietnam a number of boat people from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia started arriving at our shores. This attracted the attention of a group of researchers at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor who conducted a large study over a number of years to find out how they did it. Note that “family values” as used here are different from those political code words in common use currently in the US. On the GPA’s 79% of the children earned A’s or B’s in their local schools, and on the state-wide math tests 85% earned A’s or B’s.
Maybe there’s something here that explains how the Vietnamese were able to defeat not only the French imperialists but also the world’s greatest war machine, the USA.
Those who believe in American Exceptionalism should look deeply into the eyes of these children. 2.The quality of our primary and secondary education has declined in comparison to that of many other countries. IN EGYPT AND TUNISIA, ORDINARY CITIZENS HAVE TOPPLED AUTOCRATS; ELSEWHERE IN THE ARAB WORLD, they still battle dictators, armed with little more than their belief in freedom, human rights, and democracy.
As the British scientist Jacob Bronowski observed more than half a century ago, the enterprise of science requires the adoption of certain values that are adhered to by its practitioners with exceptional rigor. Science advances by overthrowing an existing paradigm, or at least substantially expanding or modifying it. This constant renewal and advancement of our scientific understanding is a central feature of the scientific enterprise. The new Arab societies we are building must be open pluralistic societies that are producers of knowledge and new opportunities.
I wanted to comment on your folio and call your attention to an opinion by Linda Greenhouse in the NY Times today. On your education manifesto, I agree with Dodie's comment about the way schools are funded in this country.
I’m working on my next offering that deals with how we might actually bring about a renaissance in the American family within a generation or at most, two. This article by Frederick Hess on school choice in ‘National Affairs’ has just come in, with an extensive analysis of why charter schools are a disappointment. Information we access daily for the daily functioning of life and the things we are interested. Information that is stored below the age of 3 which we cannot access with normal techniques.
Any forced memory leads to mental disorders like Parkinson disease  which is related to having memory on the table which you don’t want. Fast forward to May 2014, a span of 5 years after I attended this mind-blowing memory discourse, little did I know that this is preparing me one day I shall teach children how to enhance their memory power?! Swamiji did say that one way to help the children today is to expand their table memory through interest and time-tested Vedic memory techniques that activate the entire brain power. Last Sunday, I had the fortune of sharing a short eN-Memory introductory session with a small group children and parents.

Children learn from society and parents that it takes hard work and studying to be successful. Usually the Short-term memory will keep information for 24-48 hrs whereas information in the Long-term memory stays for 3-6 years. Whenever there is a clear interest, your unconscious mind draws the information directly in. During study, most of the information goes into the conscious mind, some gets into the subconscious mind and very little gets past into unconscious mind. It is my sincere hope that many schools in Singapore will be able to embrace such a programme. I am writing a course on writing, and would love to use your map as an illustration in the course. I was able to understand how things were connected… things that you learned in 20 years in like one day. We still have superb research and graduate education universities, but to uphold standards they now draw heavily on foreign students and faculty. I believe that if teachers want to be unionized, they should be allowed to, but they have a responsibility in turn not to abuse their power.
In about half of the United States fully one third of the students entering high school never graduate. This is a good thing, but it surely should not be the only thing that prospective educators learn in four years of college. We have a plague of ideology in this country that is stifling any public – particularly political – discourse.
Yet the majority of the population continues on the path of mediocrity and even ineptitude. It began in 1965 to provide summer school for children about to start kindergarten and later expanded to include year-round preschool classes.
What is meant by this is salaries that can lure people into a profession that they actually want but don’t enter because salaries in industry are so much more. It was called the National Science Resources Center, a joint project of the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, and is now the Smithsonian Science Education Center – SSEC.
Perhaps no one has said this better than the Librarian of the historic Library of Alexandria, Egypt. Here are just two measures, their average grades and their math scores on the California Achievement Tests (CAT). In the Indochinese culture these results are probably to be expected; in ours, they are hugely impressive. They may be among those who came to the United States with nothing but the rags on their backs, and beat your kids in science and math. Inter-school sports competitions should be abandoned in favor of intramural contests in which all students can participate.
Thus there is a certain constructive subversiveness built into the scientific enterprise, as a new generation of scientists makes its own contribution.
It requires a tolerant engagement with the contrarian view that is grounded in disputes arbitrated by the rules of evidence and rationality. Our youth have sparked our revolution, just as other young people have transformed societies, reinvented business enterprise, and redefined our scientific understanding of the world we live in. Fitch is President of his own consulting firm, Fitch & Associates, based in Taos, New Mexico.
If our nation and its states and communities and families get our principles and standards straight, the funding will undoubtedly follow. If we give even more responsibilities to the schools for the rearing of children, we shall have more bureaucracy interfering with how we should live and think, and at greater cost.
It was amazing to see right understanding and awareness of the truths could change the context of the problem. If the information is not reviewed or refreshed, you will still be able to remember after 1 year.
For example, if we watch a movie, due to our interest, the unconscious mind will record all the 3-hrs of information from the movie. The basis for good understanding is verbalisation (IQ), visualisation (EQ), awareness (SQ). Experts agree that the results are valid evaluations of students’ knowledge and ability to creatively solve novel problems. These jobs are going begging because even though almost 8 percent of the working population are jobless and many more have given up looking for jobs, so many cannot qualify.
They should have a rich instruction in the liberal arts with a major that is not in education. I ran into some students on university campuses who were bright and attractive and likeable. This is especially true in minority neighborhoods, since racism is still alive and well in America. Once a very large federal program with attendant bureaucracy and vested financial and political interests is established, it becomes almost impossible to get rid of it. They learn that a square block won’t fit a round hole, that sugar tastes sweet, and that an arm can be used for lifting things.
Their basic premise is that children love to explore with real objects, be they butterflies, batteries and bulbs, weather or organisms. They were given shelter in some of the poorest inner city neighborhoods, and there they sent their children to school.
A typical scenario was that after school at home, the family sat down at a round table for dinner. Truly professional teachers must receive remuneration that is competitive with that in other professions. Far too much energy and treasure is spent on inter-school contests that benefit so few students in any meaningful way.
Many fear that the idealism of the revolutionary democrats will only pave the way for theological autocrats who preach an intolerant doctrine. Our respect and admiration for Newton are not diminished by the achievements of Albert Einstein.
Today, as they lead the rebuilding of our societies, they must embrace the values of science. He retired as Senior Vice President for R & D and Chief Scientific Officer Worldwide for SC Johnson in Racine, Wisconsin in 1990. He was the founding chairman of the National Industry Council for Science Education which later became a part of the Corporate Council for Mathematics and Science Education of the National Academy of Sciences. Avocational interests include skiing, hiking, alpine wildflower photography, and the collection of antique scientific instruments. So the key is continuously refreshing the important information so that it retains in the Long-term memory.

The bundle of nerves that connects the 2 hemispheres of our brain is called corpus callosum. It makes no sense that the science teacher in my kids’ high school was the football coach who never had any science, even though he had earned certification as a teacher. The ‘hard’ sciences are perceived as hard because they have developed a methodology – ‘the Scientific Method’, a discipline that attempts to lead us to good answers and not to get fooled by inadequate data and thinking. So that a well-researched, developmental, inquiry-based, hands-on curriculum without textbooks will bring enthusiasm for learning, structured and disciplined learning, and creative problem solving. They gave up everything except their boat-home to preserve their family values that would otherwise have been destroyed by the communists. Most difficult by far, in my estimation, is the building of stronger families with the ideals as exemplified by the boat people. But fighting extremism is best done not by censorship or autocracy but by embracing pluralism and defeating ideas with ideas.
Any scientist who manufactures data risks being ostracized indefinitely from the scientific community, and he or she jeopardizes the credibility of science for the larger society.
Scientists are concerned with the content of the scientific work, not with the person who produced it. Together, all armed with these values, we can think of the unborn, remember the forgotten, give hope to the forlorn, include the excluded, reach out to the unreached, and by our actions from this day onward lay the foundation for better tomorrows.
Prior to that he was Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science for 15 years at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.
This involved senior technology officers of major technology-based corporations in supporting best practice in science education. If we live our lives casually, we will be the highest achievers and we can also be successful in studies by studying casually instead of by working hard. Researchers have proven that there is a strong correlation between the speed at which information travels through the corpus callosum and our ability to understand. One young woman at a university in the Midwest came up to me after one of my talks and said that until she heard me speak that morning she'd never understood that the original 13 colonies were all on the East Coast. There’s an important added benefit in that this leads to better academic performance in all other areas, e.g.
In a matter of months the kids were not only learning English but they shot to the top of their classes in science and math, and achieved at least average grades in English! The oldest child helped the next younger, and so on down the line, with the parents circling behind to ensure wo?rk was getting done.
The inquiry-based science curriculum of the Smithsonian Science Education Center of the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academy of Sciences is exemplary.
No corporate manager would agree to a seniority system; nor would one agree to Last-in-first-out (LIFO) hiring practices.
And here, science has much to say, particularly about the values that are needed for societies to be truly open and democratic, because these are the values of science. In earlier years he held positions at North Dakota State University and at The Marshall Laboratories of DuPont in Philadelphia.
He has served on the Management Team of the National Institute for Science Education, a research-oriented entity supported by a $10M grant from the National Science Foundation.
We have built this great edifice of an education system not on bedrock, but on an unstable foundation (the American Family), and it is crumbling. The oldest child helped the next younger, and so on down the line, with the parents circling behind to ensure work was getting done. In Yogic psychology and yogic physiology, there are 3 levels of intelligence, namely IQ (Cognitive Intelligence which relates to spontaneity and intellect), EQ (Emotional Intelligence which relates to ability to deal with people and society) and SQ (Spiritual Intelligence which relates to ability to live joyfully in this world).
From Vedic tradition, there are many techniques revived by Swamiji for activating the left brain, right brain and corpus callosum for children. These were families greatly influenced by the precepts of Confucius, precepts that affected not just ‘Indo China’ but China, Korea and Japan as well.
There is evidence that seniority rules are being eliminated under the current administration’s “Race to the Top” project. There are many organizations, which, if they combined their energies and subscribed to this manifesto, could form a ‘critical mass’ to bring about the needed change. These values of science are universal values worth defending, not just to promote the pursuit of science but to produce a better and more humane society.
He was responsible for establishing the academic polymer science programs at both North Dakota State and at UConn. Fitch was Chairman of the Advisory Board of the National Science Resources Center -- now the Smithsonian Science Education Center --, a joint project of the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academy of Sciences.
For normal human beings, we are only able to activate 10% of the energy  whereas enlightened beings can utilise 100% of their energy. Studying is not hard work which can be done casually as long as we can generate the same level of interest in children.
Societal conditioning about studying has created a huge tumour inside of us – that studying is a burden. In this eN-memory program, the children will learn a combination of memory techniques and meditations which rewire the brain of children. It’s why we see so many Orientals at the tops of graduate schools, music organizations and scientific research institutes here in the United States.
Teamwork has become essential in most fields of science, and it requires that all the members of the team receive the recognition they deserve. This last focusses on experiential learning in the early grades by means of the development and distribution of laboratory and instructional resources, leadership training at local school districts and regional centers, and the involvement of industry support. Contributions are also cumulative, and each should be recognized for his or her contribution. It is a sentiment well captured in Isaac Newton’s famous statement that “If I have seen farther than most, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.” Science requires the freedom to enquire, to challenge, to think, to imagine the unimagined. It cannot function within the arbitrary limits of convention, nor can it flourish if it is forced to shy away from challenging the accepted.
The best teachers are those who have a gift and the energy and enthusiasm to convey their love for science or history or Shakespeare or whatever it is.
They can electrify the morning when you come into the classroom.”?Marc Tucker, of the National Center on Education and the Economy, has shown that today our schools of education fall far short of the standards in other countries such as in Finland, Japan, Shanghai and Ontario.

There is a much higher degree of professionalism, higher teacher salaries, and higher social respect for teachers in such places than in the US.
