COLUMBUS, Ohio – Researchers have found a surprising way to help boost the skills of children with language impairment: Pay their parents to read to them.  A new study tested four techniques to get parents or other caregivers to complete a 15-week literacy intervention for their children with language impairment.  Only one of those techniques – paying parents 50 cents for each reading session – led to children showing significant gains in reading test scores, findings showed.  “We were somewhat stunned to find that paying parents had this strong effect. We didn’t anticipate this,” said Laura Justice, lead author of the study and professor of educational psychology at The Ohio State University.  The other three techniques tried in the study were offering positive feedback to the parents, offering encouragement, and modeling to parents how to read in a way that improved children’s literacy skills.  None of these three was helpful, and offering feedback actually had a slight…

Why Tripadvisor is a Scam?


5 questions who deserve some reflection

 
The idea of a service for travelers from all over the world is very interesting
but the problem is how all good things that attract the attention of the scammers.
A perverse system that once triggered may result in failures or benefits for any restaurant, hotel or tourist attraction classified. What happens in reality is very simple

 
TripAdvisor ranking system based on the judgments of its members. Now there are some evident problems:

 
1) The members are all in good faith?


2) The owners of the business classified may have access to the site with different accounts?


3) All members of the website are experts in the subject that rank?

4) What are the advantages to be placed in the top positions?


 5) how to they act the professionals of reviews?

1) No, not all members are in good faith!
Some write why does really want to convey their experience to help other travelers in the right choice. 

Some, because they are friends or relatives of the  business who judge.
Others, because they are not friends and do not like the owners of  business
And others, because they are owners of competitor business .


2) Yes! The owner of the business, as well other members may have access to the site with different accounts.

3) Absolutely no! Only a few are really experts in the field who judge.

4) Huge in terms of business, many people trust the judgment of Tripdvisor.

5)  Many business owner, pay a professional to check and post on Tripadvisor or other similar sites.

The drift of socials media
 
So, that today, it is created a real business of the reviews. Some experts have started a social media business really profitable, and companies pay thousands of dollars a year to keep in good condition their social media
On this would be nothing to say, the problem arises because it falsifies information and this is at the expense of people who believe that you have a good service.
If this is the future of</span> the Internet and social media we are on the wrong track.
All games run through compliance with the rules if this is not the prerogative, we must revise the right sense to give to these magnificent instruments.
