Cox, Spain

If you are travelling into the south east of Spain, around Alicante or Murcia, you should pay a visit to the village of Cox. There is a population of approximately 6 1/2 thousand people here and the main language is Spanish. The town is situated at the base of the Sierra de Segura and it has a large agricultural base, the farmers growing mainly fruits and vegetables.

The history of the area is much the same as many of the other towns in this province. There is definite archaeological evidence that there were settlers in the area going back to Stone Age times. The Moors, had a great influence on the people and the land until they were conquered by the Christians in the 13th century. The population of this village has increased by over 300% in the last three decades.

The Costa Blanca itself has a lot to offer the tourist. From Cox, you can visit the beautiful Mediterranean seaside where you will find plenty to keep you entertained, apart from the obvious sunbathing. In Cox itself, there is plenty to do it and see if you are looking for architecture. There is the fully restored Castilla de Santa Barbara. This is situated about 80 meters into the hills around Cox. There is a footpath that goes all the way up to the castle although you should take it in sections as it is very steep. The only problem is you won’t be able to get inside the castle without permission. There are some tours but they are organized infrequently. There is also the Cox Mill which is now an ethnological museum.

Of course, if you are looking for some real fun in the evening time, you should head up to one of the nearby cities. Both Alicante and Benidorm offer great night-time entertainment. If you go to Benidorm, you can be sure of all night long entertainment. They are many different cabaret acts which normally commence at around eight o’clock every evening.

Does Warren Buffett Have Asperger’s Syndrome and Does This Make Him Financially Gifted?

Before I tell you about Warren Buffett, I first need to lay some groundwork for the article because there are some very common misconceptions about Asperger’s Syndrome, and in this particular case, I mean it as a compliment to Warren Buffett’s extraordinary abilities to think that he has this.

Asperger’s Syndrome (sometimes shortened to “aspergers” or “AS”) is the name now used for a mild form of autism that is thought to affect as many as 1 out of 300 people. People who have Asperger’s Syndrome are often affectionately referred to as “aspies” by those who love them. Most experts do not consider Aspergers to be a “mental disorder” but rather an uncommon neurological phenotype. Aspies often come across as “eccentric.” They are sometimes deemed to be “oddballs” by others but many blend in so well in society that no one would ever guess they have aspergers. It just depends on the person.

Many aspies have a very high IQ’s. In fact, some exhibit “off the charts” intelligence. The most famous aspies throughout history have mostly been highly gifted artists and scientists such as Mozart and Einstein or technical people like Bill Gates. However, aspies can also be financial geniuses because many are very good with numbers and possess other traits that can make them exceptionally good at understanding business and picking stocks (see below).

Warren Buffett, the most famous investor the world has ever known and certainly considered to be quite eccentric, is widely rumored to have aspergers or some other closely related form of mild autism. This of course is a “pop diagnosis” because, to my knowledge at least, there has never been any official announcements of Warren Buffett being officially diagnosed with aspergers. At the very least, however, he demonstrates many of the traits and quirks that are commonly associated with aspies.

Many aspies are highly resistant to change, especially in their personal lives. It is quite interesting that one of the richest men in the entire world still lives in a very humble home in Omaha Nebraska, the same home he has lived in since 1958! He eats at the same restaurant almost every day and orders the same rather bland food almost every time. Most of his day, every day, is spent reading financial reports and periodicals and he very seldom varies from this routine. In fact, he has fixed routines and does not like these to be changed. He considers them to be “distractions” from his ability to work.

People with Asperger’s Syndrome usually have some problems interacting socially with other people. They also often have some inner-personal emotional issues with the people they they are closest to. They really are not “anti-social” as some people assume because they do like to be social sometimes (just not all the time) and they do seek out close bonds with family and friends. However, they do often struggle in this department.

Many of those who have worked with Warren Buffett over the years have commented on how odd he is and how he can sometimes blurt out “inappropriate” statements. They sometimes comment on his lack of other social graces. Buffett has freely admitted in interviews how socially awkward he was when he was young. Just the thought of standing up in front of people and talking made him want to throw up. He was not very successful in the girlfriend department either and many classmates considered him a “smarty pants” and hard to get along with. However, as a young man, Buffett discovered Dale Carnegie’s book, “How To Win Friends and Influence People,” and he put it to the test in his real life. He was quite impressed with the results and later took Dale Carnegie’s leadership training course. Buffett credits this course to his success in business and in other aspects of his life. He proudly displays his certificate of completion in his office but does not display his college diplomas! That should tell you how much he values his Dale Carnegie training.

Regarding his abilities with interpersonal emotional issues, Warren Buffett’s family, including his deceased first wife and his son, have made public statements about how difficult it is and was to connect with him emotionally. It is quite clear that he loves his family very deeply but expressing this seems to be more of an issue than with most people.

There are many other traits that Warren Buffett exhibits too that are known traits for mild autism. It is well known that he can be painfully honest — some say “honest to a fault.” Although he usually wears a business suit, he is often disheveled, As a child, he had some very unusual interests. He would read toy railroad train catalogs for hours, roll pennies down the bath tub and time them over and over again, record the license plates of passing cars, memorize unusual facts, and sit and stare for hours at a time.Even today, he still has some very unusual “hobbies” such as spotting the square roots and cube roots of large numbers on license plates. It has been pointed out by experts that these are very “aspie-like” traits.

It is easy to see how some of Warren Buffett’s traits that could be considered to be asperger-like have helped him to be the extraordinarily gifted investor that he is. For starters, he has the uncanny ability to hyper-focus for very long periods of time and he can do this on subjects that would bore most people to death. Plus, he has has continued to do this for years. This hyper-focus is just not a trait that can be duplicated by most people no matter how hard they try and it is a known aspie trait.

“Fluid intelligence,” which I personally believe Warren Buffet likely has, is a special kind of intelligence that has been shown to be present in highly intelligent aspergians. It is a true gift and allows one to see connections between topics that most people, even intelligent people, can not see. It also allows a person to very easily recognize patterns and trends. I believe this “fluid intelligence” may be another critical key to why Buffett is such a talented investor and why it is very difficult to truly imitate him.

Warren Buffett does not seem affected by the same “peer pressure” that most investors are subject to. In fact, he seems to pride himself on being different and bucking Wall Street paradigms. He doesn’t seem to much care if he is different. This is very much an aspie trait that I believe has allowed him to amass a fortune by developing his own very unique and very successful style of trading which has evolved over the years to accommodate his ever increasing amounts of wealth.

Most aspies develop what is usually termed “special interests” which are intense interests in subjects that are esoteric and/or unusual. Aspies will go to great lengths to learn absolutely everything there is to know on their special interest subjects. Often times they have a genius level savant ability in their special interest. These usually start in childhood and Warren Buffett’s interest in making money and the financial world certainly started in childhood. Further, he continued to pursue this special interest with an intensity that is very seldom seen in other individuals.

In interviews, Warren Buffett himself has said that he thinks he is “wired differently” than most people. From my research, I agree with him and I believe he demonstrates many traits that are common in those who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. I also believe that these very special traits are the reason he is so financially gifted. The human race is quite lucky to have these rare individuals come along ever so often. Given all that he has taught other investors and the enormous donations to charity that he has recently so generously given, he has become one of the most influential people of all time and I believe will continue to make a positive impact for many generations to come.

The Advantages of Using Flashcards in Learning

The challenges of learning are that if it is enjoyable, the information is readily absorbed. Success with it, brings more motivation. If not, it’ll be harder for students to process the given information. What better solution than to make learning an enjoyable and interactive experience by learning with flashcards? But as it is a rudimentary tool, not everyone may show immediate interest with it. This is where the work comes in.

Learning with flashcards can be a fun and interactive educational experience for both children and adults. Flashcards are simple media of instruction used commonly for the basic education of children. But the employment of these educational tools can also extend to adult education.

Using flashcards develops and improves retention of information and improves the connection of synapses. A flashcard’s obverse side would usually contain a singular image of an object, organism, letter, word, or number depending on its use. Such minimalism in design allows a person to focus on the card’s image when it is flashed. Sometimes, additional information that is written concisely is printed on the reverse sides of the cards. If the flashcards are particularly designed for guessing games, the information written on the reverse sides are answers or literal references of the images on the front.

Most teachers, lecturers and parents find that learning with flashcards is quick, direct, and hassle-free. Their diverse and colorful designs attract children and adults alike. The images printed on the cards and the manners in which they are used (“flashing of cards”) stimulate the mind to quickly look for references to identify the flashed images. This is why flashcards are ideal to use as educational games.

The real difficulty of a certain subject matter or problem can also be lessened by choosing flashcards of varying difficulties, or it can be made more unpredictably challenging by employing a random flash method. This is often used in testing individuals. Repetition is also employed in using flashcards. Such method gradually embeds in the viewers the flashed images and allows them to remember a specific image more.

One of the most important advantages of using flashcards is they are easy and fast to reproduce. Making flashcards can be your art project with kids, students and family members. With just crayons, color markers, paper boards, and scissors you can produce your unique set of flashcards that friends, family, or students can enjoy and learn from.

C# HashSet Advantages

A Set data structure was finally added to C# in the .NET Framework 3.5. It is a powerful data structure that makes life a little easier for programmers…

The C# Set is called a HashSet. It is modeled after a math set, meaning that elements must be unique. In other words a Set guarantees that there are no duplicate elements.

Now why create a Set data structure in C# when one could simply check a list before adding an element to see if it already exists? The answer: it is because searching a run-of-the-mill list is slow. A HashSet is fundamentally designed to allow fast searches, making inserts faster.

There are different implementations of Sets. Some make insertion and lookup operations super fast by hashing elements. However that means that the order in which the elements were added is lost. Other implementations preserve the added order at the cost of slower running times.

The HashSet class in C# goes for the second approach, thus preserving the order of elements. It is still much faster than a regular List. Some basic benchmarks showed that HashSet is decently faster when dealing with primary types (int, double, bool, etc.). It is a lot faster when working class objects. So that point is that HashSet is fast.

The only catch of HashSet is that there is no access by indices. To access elements you can either use an enumerator or use the built-in function to convert the HashSet into a List and iterate through that.

Versatube Buildings, A Review Of Our Prefab Versatube Garage

My wife and I purchased a Versatube prefab garage kit measuring 20 feet wide by 24 feet long. I did my best to research Versatube along with many other prefab garage kit manufacturers and found that for some odd reason, there weren’t many reviews available online. If you are a research junkie like me, you already know that this is the sort of thing that drives you crazy. I decided that regardless of our experience with the construction of our metal garage project, that I would post a review online of the entire process from ordering through to completion.

My family owns a 2 acre recreational property at a nearby lake. We have two ATV’s and two PWC’s (Sea-doos) and we wanted a garage for storage that was secure and completely maintenance free. Our lake property was bought for relaxing, socializing, and recreation so we didn’t want the inevitable maintenance involved in a wood frame building. Obviously, re-shingling, painting, or fixing vinyl siding damage was to be avoided if possible. Thus we decided on a metal prefab garage kit.

CONSTRUCTION OF THE VERSATUBE GARAGE…

We decided that we wanted the building to be portable, and we also wanted to avoid a higher property tax bill. To accomplish this we built a wooden skid foundation (no permits needed and our county doesn’t tax portable buildings). Once the ground was perfectly level, we used sixteen 6x6x12ft pressure treated with 2×6’s screwed to both sides to achieve the 24ft length as a base. We then screwed down two layers of 3/4″ plywood as a floor.

Ours has a 7′ x 9′ overhead door. We also chose to have one semi transparent sunlight panels on each side of the roof since we like to use small solar panels to charge the batteries in the sea-doos and ATV’s while we’re away.

I did some horse trading with my neighbor for an almost new man door. The overhead door provided was great. The sunlight panels provided for the roof were a bit disappointing though. They seemed a rather light duty and I worried about hail damage. Sure enough, within the next two weeks we got marble sized hail, and sure enough, about 10 little holes in the sunlight panels. I went to back to the supplier and bought 2 more identical panels (at a much discounted price) and installed them over the originals. Suffice to say, I’d recommend that you ask to double up on the sunlight panels. Who knows, mention this review and they might even throw a couple extras in for free.

The construction video is decent as a primer more of a promotional thing. The instruction booklet was much more useful. There was obviously a lot of effort that went into it. I can’t think of any frustrating moments wondering “what the heck do they mean!”.

The moment I saw the Versatube framing system I was impressed (and relieved) by how heavy duty it seemed. As a bonus, it is quite simple to assemble. Just slide the pieces together, use some some self tapping screws to solidify, and that’s it. Make no mistake though, this isn’t Lego. While we didn’t find the construction to be very mentally difficult, you’ll definitely need some physical strength and agility to complete this project. A couple of good 8 or 10 foot ladders are a must. You’ll also need a good quality cordless drill with a spare battery on the charger. There are several million (slight exaggeration) self tapping screws that hold the prefab garage kit together. A small amount of cutting using tin snips will also be required.

The end result is incredibly nice. It’s sturdy, functional, and attractive. Apart from the minor sunlight panel issue, the Versatube prefab garage kit deserves a five star rating. It’s much easier to build than a traditional wooden garage and of course it’s fireproof. Mostly it appeals to the lazy part of me that would rather have fun at the lake than worry about maintenance.

Use The Xbox to Learn Piano Or Keyboard As Well As Your Games Console And Get The Most Out Of It

Although the Xbox has been mainly used for gaming, because of its connectivity to the internet it can be used for so much more these days including learning to play piano or keyboard.

Most people have their game consoles set up in their spare room or study room, and this is the room where people chill out after a long day at the office, so it’s a perfect area to set up a piano or keyboard.

The Xbox is a fantastic gaming console, and is very popular with both the younger generation and adults.

There are so many features to the Xbox, including, being able to connect it to your iPod, to play music, play audio devices streamed from your PC for example films, music videos photos and mp3 files.

You can also play games through the internet for free.

There are many more educational products available now too, so why not use it to learn how to play piano or keyboard yourself?

With modern technology being developed all the time, and new features coming out it is becoming increasingly popular to be able to learn via consoles as well as being able to have lots of fun whilst doing it!

With all consoles being connected to the internet and the fact that most things you can do over the web these days, even learning how to play the piano and keyboard is possible, and works brilliantly, as you are able to access your tutorials through the game console via the internet.

Although the Xbox is known for being most popular for playing games, which both children and adults love to do, it is also a good way of promoting learning over the internet and in the near future technology will be so far developed even part of schooling will be done in this way I would imagine.

A study recently conducted was on how to try to channel children’s energy into learning, and to develop their skills but using something they are familiar with and love to do as a hobby.

It was also discussed with children and adults with learning difficulties that can’t necessarily sit still or learn in a normal school or college environment, but they can learn visually and practically.

So by channeling this into game consoles it is a fantastic way of encouraging children and adults to take a break from playing games and get them to learn piano or keyboard, especially as it’s on a piece of equipment that they like to use.

Online piano and keyboard tutorials are now becoming more and more developed and music is known to channel energy into something positive, so it’s becoming increasingly popular for parents to encourage their children to take up a musical instrument such as the piano or keyboard and to learn whilst getting great enjoyment out of it.

It still be seen as playing on their game console, but at the same time they are learning something that will be rewarding for the rest of their life.
