Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today? Maureen McGrath - firstname.lastname@example.org - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW. She is a Registered Nurse, Sex Educator and author of “Sex & Health". This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

This talk guides postgraduate students and those thinking of doing a PhD through the vicissitudes of the doctoral process. In a friendly and down-to-earth way, the speaker illustrates issues that many doctoral students face. The talk covers seven challenges that may emerge during a PhD: I’m stuck!, There’s more!, I have no motivation!, I forgot what I did!, I am not sure this is relevant!, I feel lonely! and I don’t know what is next! For each one of these challenges, the speaker provides recommendations on how to tackle them, which draw both on empirical studies and anecdotal evidence. The suggestions go from having “thinking time” to let ideas mature to keeping a research diary, from sticking to a few research questions to saving multiple copies of the thesis manuscript files. The talk recognises that doing a PhD could be more difficult than one may initially expect but that there are ways to overcome the obstacles and enjoy the learning process. Dr. Laura Valadez-Martinez is a Research Associate at the Center for Research in Social Policy of Loughborough University, specialising in income adequacy, poverty measurement, and childhood poverty and well-being. Born and raised in Mexico, she became aware of social inequalities from a young age, and volunteered in various non-governmental organisations. Volunteering activities helped Laura realise that social development requires coherent combined action between the government, civil society, and the private sector. This led her to pursue higher education in the areas of public administration and social policy, under the premise that a sound understanding of social problems is crucial to promote well-being. Consequently, Laura studied the Masters in Public Policy at Monterrey Tech in Mexico. She also holds an MSc in Public Policy in Latin America and the PhD in Social Policy from Oxford University.

The ultimate wake up early motivation. First you need to know how much sleep you need to not feel like shit when you wake up, and know that you can actually get too much sleep and feel lazy for the rest of the day. The perfect amount of sleep is most often between 5-9 hours and I challenge you to set the alarm earlier than you normally would to sleep less than usual just to evaluate how you feel. Optimize your environment Eliminate sources of light and try to block it all out. Shove the tv out if you have one in your bedroom and instead pick up a book to read. Preferably fiction rather than business or self-help as that will trigger your brain and you’ll get all sorts of cool ideas that will hinder you from falling asleep. There are a lot of techniques you can use to fall asleep faster and wake up fresh, and I’ve made a video about 6 uncommon tips that will definitely speed this process up. But some more common things or tools you can use that will optimize your sleeping environment is white noise machines. It’s a tool that reduces the distracting effect of outsides noises for a more relaxing environment. It’s almost like a heavenly fan without the breeze, just the sound. And this might sound awful to you but it’s highly effective for falling asleep because you won’t notice those weird random noises that you otherwise would be convinced is the ring girl coming for you. Another tool to wake up fresh is to use wake up light alarm clocks. It will wake you up by first turning on the a light which will increase in brightness, and eventually go over to sounds. Some models have nature sounds and others just normal beeping sounds. It’s a pretty neat way to wake up and takes away that choking beep normal alarms give you. Don’t snooze Don’t snooze. Don’t ever hit that snooze button man, c'mon you know better than that. I don’t have to explain this much more but just knock fudge out of that alarm clock and let it know who’s the boss, then you want to count from 5 backwards to zero, like you’re taking of with a rocket. Once you reach 0 you’re up and away. It really is that simple and you’ll be up within 10 seconds of the alarm going off. Me personally, I just go full savage and place my alarm clock on the other side of the room or in the kitchen with full volume. Have a reason The number one thing for making this habit stick is that you should want to get up, just like you wanted to get up for christmas as a kid. You can’t convince yourself to wake up early just because, there has to be a reason for you waking up. One thing that get’s me to follow any habit is the checklist manifesto. It’s such a powerful way of getting things done and it’s so easy to implement. All you need to do is to simply create a list of things you want to do the night before you go to bed and put boxes beside every task. For instance my first five tasks is to make my bed, do 40 push ups, drink a full glass of water, have a shot of ACV and then take a walk while listening to an audiobook. These five tasks only takes me about 20-25 minutes to accomplish and after that I’ll make some coffee and then I’m fully awake and I go onto some more productive work such as working on these videos. And if you want to be almost as cool as me and listen to audiobooks, you can sign up through my audible link to their 30 day free trial and get 2 books for free. You can cancel the membership any time and still keep the books. Here is the link: https://goo.gl/x64Vb9 And there you go, make sure to implement this tonight already, or since you probably watching this at 2:42 am, try this tomorrow. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next one.

How to design a successful logo? How to build a famous brand for your business? Some of the most well-known logos in the world were purposefully designed to indicate something much more than simple beauty. In fact, it seems that in some cases, every line, curve, and color has meaning behind it. Adidas, Apple, BMW, Coca-Cola, Toyota… We see these famous brands everywhere but never consider what their logos exactly mean. Curious to know the secret? Watch the 16 famous logos with a hidden meaning you've never noticed. Hyundai 0:33 The letter ’Н’ symbolizes two people – a client and a representative of the company – shaking hands. Adidas 0:52 The current logo is three stripes at an angle which together form a triangle. This symbolizes a mountain, which in turn represents the challenges that all sportsmen have to overcome day after day. Apple 1:21 Rob Janoff, the designer who came up with the world-famous Apple company logo, explained his idea in one of his interviews. He bought a bag of apples, placed them in a bowl, and spent time drawing them for a week, trying to break the image down into something simple. Vaio 1:58 The first two letters of the Vaio logo symbolize an analogue wave. The last two are similar to the numbers 1 and 0 — that is, symbols of a digital signal. Amazon 2:14 The orange arrow is similar to a smile because the company wants its customers to be satisfied. The arrow is also stretched between the letters ’A’ and ’Z’, in a hint that the company sells absolutely every product you can imagine. Baskin Robbins 2:40 The pink-colored parts of the "BR" section make up the number 31, which is how many ice cream flavors Baskin Robbins used to famously sell. Toyota 2:56 The logo represents a stylized image of a needle eye with a thread passing through it. This is a hint at the company’s past – they used to produce weaving machines. Continental 3:28 Continental, a famous car tire producer, has a logo in which the first two letters depict a car wheel. Formula 1 3:41 If you look carefully at the white space between the letter ’F’ and the red stripes, you can see the number 1. Pinterest 3:59 On Pinterest, people collect images they like from across the Internet and ’pin’ them to their online boards. That’s why the image of a pin is hidden in the letter P. Beats 4:17 Beats, an audio equipment producer based in the USA, uses a logo in which the letter ’B’ looks like headphones on a person’s head. Toblerone 4:32 The famous chocolate company based in Bern, Switzerland, has a silhouette of a bear in its logo. That's because Bern is sometimes called a city of bears. BMW 4:55 The logo is simply a part of the Bavarian flag, the area of Germany where the company originated. LG 5:18 The logo is a stylized image of a person’s face. According to the company, this represents its aspiration to have human relations with their customers. Evernote 5:34 The corner of the elephant’s ear is folded over in a similar way how people fold the corner of a page to make notes. Coca-Cola 5:57 In the space between the letters ’O’ and ’L’, you can see the Danish flag. It’s purely a coincidence. Nevertheless, Coca-Cola has used this as part of its marketing campaigns in the Scandinavian country. If you’ve enjoyed this video, hit that thumbs up button!
