DELETE Button found in the BRAIN And Here’s How To Use It

There’s an old saying in neuroscience: “neurons that fire together wire together.”

This means the more you run a neuro-circuit in your brain, the stronger that circuit becomes. This is why, to quote another old saw, “practice makes perfect”. The more you practice piano, or speaking a language, or juggling, the stronger those circuits get.

Scientists have known this for years. However, nowadays researchers learn another part of the truth: In order to learn something, even more important than practicing is the ability to unlearn, or to break down the old neural connections. This is called “synaptic pruning”.

This is how it works:

Imagine your brain is a garden, except instead of growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables, you grow synaptic connections between neurons. These are the connections that neurotransmitters like dopamine, seratonin, and others travel across.

“Glial cells” are the gardeners of your brain—they act to speed up signals between certain neurons. But other glial cells are the waste removers, pulling up weeds, killing pests, raking up dead leaves. Your brain’s pruning gardeners are called “microglial cells.” They prune your synaptic connections. The question is, how do they know which ones to prune?

Researchers are just starting to unravel this mystery, but what they do know is the synaptic connections that get used less get marked by a protein, C1q (as well as others). When the microglial cells detect that mark, they bond to the protein and destroy—or prune—the synapse.

This is how your brain makes the physical space for you to build new and stronger connections so you can learn more.

YOUR BRAIN CLEANS ITSELF OUT WHEN YOU SLEEP!

When you learn lots of new things, your brain builds connections, but they’re inefficient, ad hoc connections. Your brain needs to prune a lot of those connections away and build more streamlined, efficient pathways. It does that when we sleep.

When you sleep your brain cells shrink by up to 60% to create space for your glial gardeners to come in and take away the waste. That’s how they prune the synapses.

Have you ever woken up from a good night’s rest and been able to think clearly and quickly? That’s why. It’s like running fragmentation on your computer.

This is the same reason naps are so beneficial to your cognitive abilities. A 10 or 20 minute nap gives your microglial gardeners the chance to come in, clear away some unused connections, and leave space to grow new ones.

Thinking with a sleep-deprived brain is like hacking your way through a dense jungle with a machete. It’s overgrown, slow-going, exhausting.

Thinking on a well-rested brain is like wandering happily through Central Park; the paths are clear and connect to one another at distinct spots, the trees are in place, you can see far ahead of you. It’s invigorating.

This is how you can control what gets deleted from your brain:

It’s the synaptic connections you don’t use that get marked for recycling. The ones you do use are the ones that get watered and oxygenated. So be mindful of what you’re thinking about.

If you spend too much time reading theories about the end of “Game of Thrones” and very little on your job, guess which synapses are going to get marked for recycling?

If you’re in a fight with someone at work and devote your time to thinking about how to get even with them, and not about that big project, you’re going to wind up a synaptic superstar at revenge plots but a poor innovator.

WHAT YOU FOCUS ON PREVAILS! YOU LITERALLY CRAFT YOUR OWN MIND BY CHOOSING WHAT YOU PAY ATTENTION TOWARDS.

Of course, you can hardly control what happens to you throughout your day, but you can control how much it affects you. To be more specific, you can choose WHAT affects you and construct your own neural connections.

Instead of focusing on things that hold you back, focus on things that make you a better human being. Instead of imagining scenarios that will most likely never happen, meditate. Clear your mind. Bring your mind to the now and use your mental energy toward things that benefit you.

It really is a game of strategy. You need to smartly use your mind, to be smart. Resisting the temptation of things that don’t benefit you, that’s what makes you smart.

In order to delete something, simply, stop thinking about it. Even when you are reminded, change your focus and attention. Sooner or later it will get marked for recycling.

which of this two country do you think is richer and deserves appropriate praises.

Two countries, one type of natural mineral resources(Crude oil). Which of the two countries do you think optimized their natural reserve to create a better country and improved the standard of living of their citizens? One of the country is in the African continent while the other is in the Asia continent.

Located in Asia continent, UAE is the 7th largest producer of crude oil and one of the richest country in the world. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are its most popular and biggest cities in the country. UAE is the third richest country in the world. What make them become so great? UAE major export is crude oil, but they did not just rely on their natural resources, they diversified into other sectors like tourism, audacious infrastructures, aviation and ground breaking technological projects thereby optimising its crude oil profits. Currently dubai is one of the most sought after tourist destination. It is home to the world tallest building, housing several luxury hotels and resorts and top notch tourist sights.

Pictures below are just few of the wonders in UAE:

2 Nigeria 

Located in Africa continent, Nigeria rank the biggest crude oil producer in Africa and 11th largest producer in the world according to an article made available by Nigeria National Petroleum Agency (NNPC). Lagos and Abuja are its most famous cities with Abuja being its capital. Though Nigeria is a developing nation and thriving economically and can be said to be among the best when it comes to development and infrastructures in West Africa. Nigeria also depend mostly on crude oil exports and tends not to diversify into other sectors that can generate internal revenues. With its rich agricultural soil it is a little wonder Nigeria is not the world’s food capital nation given the fact the country have one of the best productive land and weather conditions that favour Agriculture. The population of the country might also come to play with an estimated 230 million people making it the most populous black nation. Tourism is also not in full bloom in the country.

Below are lovely pictures of some cities in Nigeria.

Looking at the infrastructures and development of these two beautiful oil producing countries, which do you think is richer and deserves appropriate praises.

TOUCHING STORY- “APPLE TREE”

There was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to
come and play around it everyday. He climbed to
the tree top, ate the apples, and took a nap under
the shadow.
He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with
him. Time went by, the little boy had grown up and
he no longer played around the tree every day.
One day, the boy came back to the tree and he
looked sad.
“Come and play with me”, the tree asked the boy.
“I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees
any more” the boy replied.
“I want toys. I need money to buy them.”
“Sorry, but I do not have money, but you can pick
all my apples and sell them. So, you will have
money.”
The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples
on the tree and left happily. The boy never came
back after he picked the apples. The tree was sad.
One day, the boy who now turned into a man
returned and the tree was excited.
“Come and play with me” the tree said.
“I do not have time to play. I have to work for my
family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help
me?”
“Sorry, but I do not have any house. But you can
chop off my branches to build your house.” So the
man cut all the branches of the tree and left
happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but
the man never came back since then. The tree was
again lonely and sad.
One hot summer day, the man returned and the
tree was delighted.
“Come and play with me!” the tree said.
“I am getting old. I want to go sailing to relax
myself. Can you give me a boat?” said the man.
“Use my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far
away and be happy.”
So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He
went sailing and never showed up for a long time.
Finally, the man returned after many years. “Sorry,
my boy. But I do not have anything for you
anymore. No more apples for you”, the tree said.
“No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite” the
man replied.
“No more trunk for you to climb on.” “I am too old
for that now” the man said. “I really cannot give
you anything, the only thing left is my dying
roots,” the tree said with tears.
“I do not need much now, just a place to rest. I
am tired after all these years,” the man replied.
“Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on
and rest, come sit down with me and rest.” The
man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled
with tears
This is a story of everyone. The tree is like our
parents. When we were young, we loved to play
with our Mum and Dad. When we grow up, we
leave them; only come to them when we need
something or when we are in trouble. No matter
what, parents will always be there and give
everything they could just to make you happy.
You may think the boy is cruel to the tree, but that
is how all of us treat our parents. We take them
for granted; we don’t appreciate all they do for us,
until it’s too late.
Lesson: Treat your parents with loving care…. For
you will know their value, when you see their
empty chair.
Honor your father and your mother, is the first
command with a promise.

Humanity Should Always Be The Priority

The house your Dad built, who is living there now?

What makes you think the ones you are building now your children will live there?

How are you sure they will live in Nigeria. Ten years now, the house will be out of fashion.

Stop killing yourself.

This wife of yours that is pushing you for greener pasture, might not mourn you for a year before she start with your friend just to keep her little Secret before the time is ripe.

Your husband might not even mourn you for 6 months, before your friend will move in.

Stop treating God’s treasures (Humans) like trash.

Those children of yours you want to train in Harvard, may just like to be a DJ or a musician that SSCE dropouts are also doing successfully.

The day you die, your account officer will reduce your money to ten percent. You are not alive because of what you have, you’re alive to serve God and humanity.

Your house may be old, but the school bag or books you bought for another man’s child will continue to grow.

This is not a call to mediocre.

Vanity is hidden in time.

Humanity Should Always Be The Priority.!!!

Have a wonderful day ❤

Negative effects of masturbation

Ma$turbation can actually be good for your health, both mentally and physically. .

Do you know that it also has a very bad effect on your Brain. It is proved that most people that ma$turbate excessively often has short-term memory.

Most of the people that ma$turbates excessively usually:

1. Feel weak and lazy

2. They often procrastinate

3. They find it very difficult to concentrate

This is as a result of continuous remembrance of the pictures you imagine in your brain which can lead to the one, both or all of the above mentioned.

One of the most dangerous effect of ma$turbation is that it can lead people to rape. You know when they ma$turbation, sometimes they don’t feel satisfied. If eventually they see something or someone to increase their satisfaction they will act immediately without second thought

Delay in marriage

Girls at the age of 18-24 years always attract serious men who are fully ready to marry them, but at this age most of our girls/sisters never wish to hear anything about marriage.

  1. I’m too young for that.
  2. Who cares about marriage.
  3. I’m focused on my books.
  4. I want to gather some money first.
  5. Marriage is full of problems.
    These are some of few statements ladies talk of at their youth age.
    But these girls will be having serious & series of sex relationship with small boys of their age, because at that age, they always have high rate of boys, guys and men coming for them, but they will prefer to choose those boys rather than the real men who want to marry them. They are still young to marry right, but they are not young to have sex with boys.
    No problem, God is watching you.
    At age of 25-27, parents will start asking them the following questions;
  6. How far?
  7. Don’t you have any one yet?
  8. Are you not planning to get married?
  9. Are you seeing that all your mates are getting married?
  10. Don’t you know you are getting old?
    But mind you, parents only see the outside of their daughters, not knowing there is nothing left inside.
    With all these questions by her own parents, she will now be thinking and asking herself things like: My mates are marrying,
  11. Does it mean am old enough to marry?
  12. Hmmm, how should I go about it?
  13. My boyfriends are not serious about asking my hand in marriage.
  14. They are not even ready to marry yet.
  15. Well, God knows the best. I believe in God.
    See oooh…!, she has started putting her blame on God. “God’s time is the best” OK, I agree for argument sake.
    At age 27-30 they now start looking for men to marry not boys to have sex and play with again.
    They will start looking for serious relationship that will lead to marriage, but unfortunately, at this age of 27-30 not all men will be asking their hand in marriage.
    You will see them forcing themselves to marry a man who don’t want to marry them. Please we beg you, leave us alone.
    No single man at age 27-30 will like to marry a lady of 30-35. Now you hear the sisters say age does not matter.
    My sister, it matters a lot.
    Imagine buying a rotten tomato for $10 and your friend buys a fresh one for $7. Yes, that’s how it feels like in marriage too.
    Remember you rejected men because you think you were too young. What makes you think your old age does not matter to us?
    That’s why some men go back to their villages to find young girl to marry when the city ones are not serious about marriage and those that are serious happen to be old for them.
    At age 30-35, her friends will ask her:
  16. Why are you not married yet by this age of yours?
  17. Is it not getting too late for you?
    You will hear her asking you some silly questions like…
  18. Are you God?
  19. Or do you want to marry me?
  20. Is it a crime to be single at 30 or 35?
  21. Did I see a man willing to marry me but I refused?
  22. God knows the best for everyone please.
    At age 30-35 they will start praying like never before, moving from one church to another. If she’s a Christian, she will start praying night prayers, fasting and dressing modestly.
    If you ask her for dating, she would burst out to say:
  23. My brother, I’m not like them.
  24. Am looking for a serious man, a husband not dating.
  25. If you truly love me go and see my parents for marriage.
  26. I can’t do anything with you without my parents consent.
    Dear parents, they have started knowing your worth. When she was 18-24, she was doing everything without considering you as parents.
    You don’t expect a young man of 27-30 to marry you of 30-35 as his house wife when there are younger pretty girls out there.
    Even if he chooses to ignore your age and marry you, his family and friends will discriminate you.
    Men that will be interested to marry you will be of 39yrs and above and mind you, those men are married with kids except you wanna be second or third wife.
    Everything in life has its own season and time.
    There’s no lady at age 30-35 seeking for marriage who haven’t been approached during 18-24. But by then, they were busily jumping from clubs/parties to hotel rooms looking for FUN not MARRIAGE.
    Not everything is about prayer. God who created you has made a plan for you. But when you change the plan or miss the road, please don’t disturb the peace of God. Because, He will be busy planning for your younger sister.
    Why do we have high rate of single mothers and single ladies? Does it mean there no men but only boys?
    Thousands of working class ladies are out there confirmed single. Your Master’s of PhD is ZERO without a husband.
    Yes, Education is key but don’t neglect a marriage proposal all in the name of your studies. Both of you are matured enough to wait if you’re serious of getting married.
    It’s never too late to ask for forgiveness or have a second thought of mind. For our God is a merciful and gracious Lord. Change your mind.
