Criminal Minds And Activities - Faith Oyeniyi

"Criminal minds and activities" typically refer to the psychological and behavioral aspects of individuals involved in criminal behavior and the unlawful activities they engage in. It's important to note that discussing criminal activities should be done in a responsible and ethical manner. Here's an overview of what these terms generally entail:

Criminal Minds:

1. Psychological Factors: Criminal minds refer to the psychological factors that contribute to criminal behavior. This can include issues like antisocial personality disorder, psychopathy, or various forms of mental illness.

2. Motivations: Understanding the motivations behind criminal behavior is a key aspect of criminal psychology. Some criminals are motivated by financial gain, power, revenge, or even thrill-seeking.

3. Risk Factors: Certain risk factors, such as a history of abuse, substance abuse, or social influences, can increase the likelihood of individuals engaging in criminal activities.

4. Criminal Profiling: Criminal profiling is a technique used by law enforcement to create a psychological and behavioral profile of an unknown criminal. Profilers use their knowledge of criminal minds to help solve cases.

Criminal Activities:

1. Illegal Actions: Criminal activities encompass a wide range of illegal actions, including but not limited to theft, fraud, assault, drug trafficking, human trafficking, cybercrime, and various forms of violent and non-violent offenses.

2. Organized Crime: Some criminal activities involve organized crime groups engaged in activities such as racketeering, money laundering, and drug cartels.

3. White-Collar Crime: This category includes non-violent crimes committed by individuals or businesses, like embezzlement, insider trading, and corporate fraud.

4. Cybercrime: Criminal activities in the digital realm, such as hacking, identity theft, and online fraud, are becoming increasingly prevalent.

5. Terrorism: Acts of terrorism involve the use of violence or threats of violence for political or ideological purposes.

It's important to discuss these topics with sensitivity and a focus on understanding and preventing criminal behavior rather than sensationalizing it. Law enforcement, psychologists, and social workers often work together to study and address criminal minds and activities, with the goal of improving public safety and preventing future criminal acts.

BE PROMPTED TO RESIST LAZINESS IN THE FACE OF WEALTH - Chinemeze Ehirim

It's easy to settle in and unwind when harvest season approaches and you're surrounded by plenty of success. It's time to enjoy the fruits of your labour after all that hard work, right? While it's great to recognise your accomplishments, it's just as critical to keep focused and avoid relaxation during this abundant season.

A reduction in production and a loss of momentum are two risks associated with complacency. You risk missing out on chances for development and progress if you grow too accustomed to your success. It's critical to keep in mind that the harvest season serves as a catapult for even bigger successes rather than as a destination.

Setting new objectives and challenges for oneself is essential to maintaining motivation. Consider your accomplishments carefully and pinpoint any areas where you can push yourself even harder. It could be that you've been meaning to expand your product line or investigate a new market. Take advantage of this time of plenty to start new businesses and projects.

Seeking inspiration and picking up tips from others is another method to stay away from complacency. Be in the company of accomplished people who inspire and push you. 

Go to industry conferences, become a member of mastermind groups, or look for mentors who may offer advice and new insights. You may maintain the flame of inspiration by continuously pursuing new knowledge and maintaining connections with the world outside of your personal success bubble.

Finally, in your season of plenty, remember to give back and express thanks. Recall the people who have helped you along the path: your mentors, your team, or your clients. Express gratitude and look for opportunities to give back to the community. This helps you stay grounded and cultivates a good outlook.

To sum up, accepting the harvest season entails remaining driven and avoiding complacency. Create new objectives, look for motivation, show thanks, and keep pushing yourself. You can make the most of your abundant season and guarantee that your success keeps blossoming and expanding by doing this.

2-Minute Rule to Become a Master at Coding

2-Minute Rule to Become a Master at Coding — Atomic Habits By Daniel Madu

Have you ever started watching an online video tutorial and, in the middle of that video, the tutorial becomes boring for you? Or you always tell yourself that this time you’re going to finish an online course, but when you sit down and start learning, it feels like any other tedious task like washing dishes and laundry. And at the end, you find it impossible to stay productive and make progress.

The question is: “How can I stay motivated when learning to code?”

That’s when Atomic Habits by James Clear comes in. If you haven’t heard about this book, you probably aren’t into self-improvement books by any chance. In this book, James Clear answers questions like, What is a habit loop? How do I prime my environment to make progress on my goals? and How do I use Dopamine spikes to stick to good habits?

By answering these questions, I will show you how you can build the revolutionary habit of learning programming.

Let’s delve in…


Imagine a plane taking off from Los Angeles for New York. Just before takeoff, the pilot changes the flight path by 3.5 degrees, which is trivial. It is such a small change that nobody in the place can notice anything. When the plane lands, the passengers find themselves doing a sniff test because they are walking on the clean streets of Washington, DC, instead of New York. The point is that very small changes can entirely change the trajectory of our lives. And just like the passengers, we do not see the immediate results of these changes, but in the long run, the combined effect of these tiny changes and the final outcome can be significantly different.

As a novice programmer, you would think that you need to build something revolutionary to make it into the tech industry, but in reality, all you need to do is take small steps toward your goal everyday and you will be there before you even know it.

If you keep scrolling Instagram or watching YouTube, you will be no better programmer than today in one year. Build tiny atomic habits that help you learn programming everyday and you’ll be very close to landing that Software Engineer job in one year, beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Building habits is easy, but sticking to them is where most programmers struggle and can’t stay consistent. When you start to learn programming, you expect to see a linear improvement, but here is what actually happens:

At the beginning, you’ll not see any results. James Clear calls this part of the graph “The valley of disappointment”. This is where most people lose motivation, give up, and go back to their old habits. But in reality, the returns for your efforts are actually delayed. Once you pass this “Disappointment phase”, you’ll feel like a superhuman. Learning a new programming language, building projects, and getting into various jobs will suddenly come naturally to you. And when you look back at the first piece of code you wrote, you’ll definitely laugh at yourself.

Building Habit

To build a habit, you first need to understand the concepts of the “Habit Loop”. The habit loop contains Cue, Craving, Response, and Reward. That’s the loop that builds any good or bad habit that we repeat over and over again.


The Habit Loop

Let’s understand the Habit Loop by illustrating a bad habit we all suffer from. Your phone is next to you and vibrates (Cue), you crave to see who the notification is from (Craving), you pick up the phone (Response), you spend at least 30 minutes scrolling Instagram (Reward).

Or imagine that you feel bored with the video tutorial (Cue), you want to see something entertaining (Crave), you pick up the phone (Response), you watched entertaining MrBeast videos for another hour (Reward).

Soon, your brain starts making connections between watching YouTube and getting bored with the tutorial. And you end up building the bad habit of wasting time during your programming sessions.

The same way you can use the same Habit Loop to build decent habits, you can use your own laptop as a Cue to learn programming. James Clear mentions this in his book: You should make your Cue obvious by placing it where it catches your eye every time.

Cue alone cannot be sufficient; you also need to use Implementation Intentions to your advantage.

Studies have shown that the main reason most people don’t stick to good habits is not because they lack motivation but because they don’t have clarity about what they want to achieve. When you say “Tomorrow, I will learn programming”, it’s just a stupid dream that has no clarity. So, instead of just saying that, use the Habit Stacking methodology. Next time you decide to learn programming, don’t just say, “I want to learn programming.” Instead, stack it with another task, like, just after brushing my teeth, I’ll sit down and write code for 2 straight hours. This powerful process is called habit stacking.

The 2 Minute Rule

To build the habit of programming sufficiently, the 2-Minute Rule will get you there. When you set unrealistic goals for yourself, it becomes tough to stay motivated to work on them.

Make habit building easy by taking small steps every day. — James Clear

James Clear recommends starting with only two minutes a day. For example, if you want to build the habit of reading books, you can start by reading for just 2 minutes a day and gradually increase the number of minutes in the process.

The same goes with the programming, you’ll NOT become an expert programmer overnight. Instead of watching the entire 40+ hour course in 2 days, try to get the most out of it by watching a single video of it and then implementing what you’ve learned. By doing so, you’ll prevent frustration and build a long-term habit of learning new things efficiently.

That’s it for this article. I hope you enjoyed it and learned something new from it.

Don’t forget to share it with the community, too, so they can also benefit from this context.

What is Presbycusis
How Does This Affect Your Hearing

Image/Video
Hearing Loss From Advancing Age:

Presbycusis is the loss of hearing that gradually occurs in most individuals as they grow older. Hearing loss is a common disorder associated with aging. About 30-35 percent of adults between the ages of 65 and 75 years have a hearing loss.

It is estimated that 40-50 percent of people 75 and older have a hearing loss. The loss associated with presbycusis is usually greater for high-pitched sounds. For example, it may be difficult for someone to hear the nearby chirping of a bird or the ringing of a telephone.

However, the same person may be able to clearly hear the low-pitched sound of a truck rumbling down the street. There are many causes of presbycusis. Most commonly, it arises from changes in the
inner ear of a person as he or she ages, but presbycusis can also result from complex changes along the nerve pathways leading to the brain. Presbycusis most often occurs in both ears, affecting them equally. Because the process of loss is gradual, people who
have presbycusis may not realize that their hearing is diminishing.
