It has been proven that metaphors are found in all languages and in all cultures around the world

Keywords: companies

As is so well defined by a couple of authors, “metaphors act as prefabricated building blocks of mental imagery.” By making use of existing and appropriate imagery, a professional sales person can be able to get a customer to as close to the new experience as possible.

When Japanese junior and senior high school students try to improve their English pronunciation, their biggest obstacle is “surrounding eyes”

Keywords: japan , english , high school students , japanese high schools , japanese students , learning languages , linguistics , pronunciation , schools , students , teaching english in japan

It can be disheartening to see students with excellent English abilities purposely lowering their level of proficiency to “fit in” with their classmates. However, it’s also an understandable thing to do when you’re young and impressionable.

Write code that is concise, expressive, and adheres to a single responsibility at a time

Keywords: cleancode, coding

Writing clean code is having empathy for your future self and others as it ultimately makes it easier and quicker for anyone looking at your code to understand and work with it. We spend far more time reading code than I do writing it, so why not make reading code a better experience?

Word2Vec finds abstract representations for every word, so called word embeddings

Keywords: Machine Learning, NLP, Word Embeddings, AI, Text Mining

This are low-dimensional vectors (think of a list of 200 or 300 numbers). Once you have those word vectors, you can do nearly-magical math with words! If you take the vectors for King, Man, Woman, you can calculate King – Man + Woman and then you’ll get the vector for: Queen!

A creation or literature becomes world famous when it is translated from one language to another, so that it can reach a large number of readers

Have you ever thought, that how it became so popular? Let me tell you, Bhagwat geeta was basically written in Sanskrit language then it was  translated into many languages such as Hindi, English, French, etc. So, that a large community can connect with it. This is the power of translation that it conveys the message of creation to all over the world.

It’s disheartening to talk to someone and while they clearly heard the words, they just didn’t seem to understand what was meant, or if they did, they were not really paying attention and were noticeably disconnected

Keywords: Active Listening, Sharing, attention, hear, listen

When we interact with others and engage in conversation with them, it is important to not only hear them, but to listen to what they are saying rather than just plan what we are going to say next.

Grew up in Montréal with an English-speaking Mom and a French-speaking Dad — Now in Italy, losing a native language + having feelings about it

Why the hell do I have to go to French school? We speak English at home! My cousins went to English school. My friends spoke English. I didn’t need to learn French. IT WASN’T PART OF MY BRAND.

Because I had vacationed in New Jersey with my family the summer before kindergarten and knew Americans mainly spoke English, I made the executive decision to not learn a second language. Who the fuck has time to learn another language at 5?
