1.It has often been shown that controversial material is more readily learnt if it fits in with existing beliefs and attitudes. For example, pro-communist students learnt more readily than anti-communist students a list of statements favourable to the U.S.S.R. That material is most easily learnt which conforms to existing opinions. The recall of controversial material may also be selective: for instance, theistic students remembered better than atheistic students statements favourable to religion and vice versa. This suggests some resistance to learning and retaining material which is not acceptable to us. Conversely, we are very ready to learn from certain sources to which we are favourably inclined, such as a political weekly or a particular author whose work we admire. Even in factual subjects, in which there may not seem to be much room for controversy, there may be parts of the subject which you regard as old-fashioned or dead wood. Once you begin to develop enthusiasms for certain approaches to your subject, as every active and spirited person does, it becomes rather too easy to dismiss other approaches as worth-less and not to bother to learn about them. The hard fact is, however, that if you have to cover a syllabus, you probably cannot afford to neglect any part of it because you think it is unimportant or because you don’t like the way it is taught.

2.Where and how to cut your losses
Half the skill in getting ahead on the career front is knowing when to move on. In everyone’s life there comes a moment when they should make the break – the world is full of has-beens who, perhaps, just didn’t have the courage to take a chance when that chance came. It pays to constantly reassess where you stand. A good stock question to ask yourself is “Where am I going to be, this time next year, if I stay in the same job?” Each career has a different kind of time-scale. The sales scene moves fast – you tend to make your money in the early years, then move on to management before you are too old and too tired to continue with the foot-in-the-door technique and the patter. The same thing goes, to a certain extent, for advertising. But other careers move at a different pace – to become head curator in a museum, for instance, or head librarian, may take years.

3.
Snoring is caused when the airway at the back of the nose and throat becomes partially obstructed. This is usually due to the loosening of the surrounding oropharyngeal muscles, but the reasons why this should occur are varied. The most common are smoking, obesity and the consumption of relaxants such as alcohol and sleeping pills. As with any common ailment, there are a host of “miracle” cures advertised – but you should first try a few simple steps to see if you can halt the snoring before adopting more drastic measures. Lifestyle changes can be the most effective. If you are overweight, a loss of weight will help to reduce the pressure on your neck. You should also stop smoking and try not to drink alcohol at least four hours before you go to bed. Beyond this, try to change your regular sleeping position. Raise the head of your bed with a brick, or tie something uncomfortable into the back of your pajamas to encourage you to sleep on your side.

Both of these will help to alter the angle of your throat as you sleep, and may thus make breathing easier for you. It is also important to keep your nasal passage clear and unblocked. Allergies, colds and hay fever can temporarily cause you to snore; nasal decongestants may help, but you are not advised to use such remedies for long periods. Nasal strips, as worn by sports people, have been proven to reduce nasal airway resistance by up to 30 percent, so consider these as a long-term alternative. If this fails, then you may wish to look at the varied snoring aids that are on the market. They range from neck collars that stop your neck tilting, through to mandibular advancement devices (such as gumshields) which reduce upper airway resistance, and tongue-retaining devices. You can also buy essential oil products that are added to warm water and infused or consumed before bedtime. They claim to tone up your palate and unblock your nasal passage.
