What Causes Stuttering in People? (part 2 of 2)

That happens when the speech muscles and nerves fail to function properly, which make it harder for the brain to coordinate with the various parts of the speech mechanism in the body. This stammering type is referred to in speech pathology terms as a neurogenic disorder. It usually occurs in children as well as adults who have brain injury or those who have suffered from stroke. In rare cases, lesions or structural flaws in the part of the brain that takes charge of a person’s motor speech trigger this neurogenic condition.

Psychogenic Disorder

Scientists explain that some forms of stammering originate from the brain’s activities such as reasoning and thought. This type of stammering is called psychogenic disorder. Compared to other forms of stammering discussed earlier, the psychogenic origin rarely affects people’s speech. It happens to people who have undergone extreme mental stress or trauma or those who have certain types of mental disorder.

However, experts believe that these emotional and mental problems lead to stuttering instead of causing the speech condition. For example, people who usually stammer may have to endure several emotional troubles like speaking on the telephone or in public. Others dread meeting new people. In some cases, people stammer when they are intensely excited, enraged, scared, or shocked. Aside from these extreme emotions, fatigue, intense pressure, and self-consciousness may also increase a person’s tendency to stutter while speaking.

Interestingly, many people who usually stutter can speak fluently when they talk to themselves, speak with a few friends, or sing with a crowd or group. The reason for that is still unclear, though.

What Causes Stuttering in People? (part 1 of 2)

Researchers have a variety of speculations about why stuttering or stammering occurs in some people. However, the exact cause of this speech condition is still unknown today. What researchers are sure of is that there are factors that may influence a person’s inability to speak fluently.

Language Development

Developmental stammering is the most usual form of the condition. That means it affects young children at a stage when they are learning how to speak and form language. Children who are still in the process of developing their speech and language tend to stutter when they speak. It occurs when children rack up their brain for the right words to convey their message. This is a sign that their speech and language abilities are not yet developed enough to help them express clearly what they intend to say. If you are very concerned with your child’s constant stammering, don’t be. Your child will outgrow it within about four years.


Most scientists believe that many forms of stammering have something to do with genetics. It is because of the tendency of the condition to run in families, supporting the claim that stammering may be inherited from one generation to another. However, the exact genetic mechanisms that cause stammering or genes that trigger the condition have yet to be found.

Neurogenic Disorder or Signal Problems

People may stutter because of difficulties in transmitting signals from the brain to the muscles and nerves that control speech.

Getting Smart On Day Trading (part 2 of 2)

Also take in mind that most large and successful companies did not make it to the top by taking shortcuts. Most of those who have earned big money through the stock exchange have actually taken more traditional routes in their tactics.

You Need To Be Knowledgeable

Not only does day trading require you to be a wise decision-maker, but most importantly, it also requires you to have a good background on security markets and trading strategies.

To be able to become successful in this endeavor, you have to compete with professional and licensed traders who might have been doing this for a very long time already. Make sure that you invest on your own experience before you attempt on playing this risky game.

You Need To Check With Your State Securities Regulator

If you really are decided on taking part in day trading, one of the most important precautions that you can at least take is to check with your state securities regulator about day trading firms. After all, just like any broker-dealers, such firms must be legally registered with the SEC in order to do business.

At least, through this way, you would be able to determine that the parties you are doing business with are actually legitimate and mostly likely would not scam you.

In conclusion, day trading is a very exploratory strategy. And so, anyone who may not have enough experience and knowledge about the stocks game should not try to gamble without properly preparing him or herself.

This strategy should only be employed by individuals who are sophisticated, well financed and experienced enough to manage complications and bear risks in case the worst-case scenario. And so, if you are thinking about betting on the day trade, make sure that you prepare yourself to be smart in your decisions.

Getting Smart On Day Trading (part 1 of 2)

Day trading is a very controversial endeavor to take on in the stock market industry these days. Many people end up losing so much of their finances through this high-risks trade. And the most common mistake why these people garner such bad results is because they often do not think of the risks involved and only concentrate on making easy money.

What anyone must be familiar with in order to survive this high-stakes industry are the things to look out for. Here are a few things that you need to know about day trading that could help you in making the right decisions about your investments.

You May Lose A Lot Of Money

The very first thing that you need to know about day trading is that you must be prepared to suffer from substantial financial losses. And take in mind that this is not a rare thing to happen among day traders, in fact, a lot of these people, do not even get the chance to earn profit at all.

Therefore if you have limited resources and a have very little experience in making investments or trades, then day trading is certainly not advisable for you. Make sure that you never gamble with money that you cannot afford to lose, such as your budget for daily expenses, mortgages, retirements and so on.

Watch Out For Claims Of Large Profits

One of the main reasons why a lot of people also get scammed in relation to day trading is because of their gullibility towards catchy promises that offer them large profits –most commonly from the Internet. Be wary of any advertisements or claims that try to convince you on how this certain trade can potentially make your rich in a short amount of time.

How to Enjoy Skydiving (part 2 of 2)

The third and last is the accelerated free fall. This is the best way to experience modern sport skydiving because you can do some acrobatics before it is time to pull the cord. You will exit the aircraft between 10,000 to 12,000 feet and slowly drop to the ground with the parachute open at 4,000 feet.

The entire time that you do any of these jumps, there will always be an instructor around from the moment you board the plane until you land on the ground. They may not be attached to your back anymore like in tandem jumping but they will be beside you to make sure everything went according to plan.

The three types of jumping are considered part of the training requirement so you can do a solo jump. It will cost money to become a licensed jumper even if this is not required by the FAA or the Federal Aviation Administration but this is a requirement if you plan to jump in drop zones regulated by the United States Parachute Association or USPA.

Skydiving is a lot of fun and you need to be trained on the ground first before you are allowed to jump off from an aircraft on your own. If you have the time and money, you will be able to get a license in less than year so you can jump anytime and anywhere.

Just remember everything that was taught to you in class so the next jump won’t be your last.

How to Enjoy Skydiving (part 1 of 2)

Skydiving is a lot of fun. It is like riding a rollercoaster but even better because the ride does not end in just a few seconds. Once you have completed ground school, it is time for you to do the real thing.

There are three types of skydiving that are done in the US. There is tandem jumping, static line and free falling.

In tandem jumping, an experienced jumper does this with you. This person will be the one to guide you all the way till you reach the ground. You don’t have to do anything the entire time except enjoy the ride.

The position of a tandem jump is with the instructor on your back carrying an extra large parachute that is capable of carrying weights of up to 500 pounds. You will wear a harness that is attached to the instructor and once you exit the plane, you guys will be in free fall motion for about a minute or so before the parachute is deployed and you slowly descend to the ground.

The tandem jump is considered to be ideal for people who don’t meet the physical or proficiency requirements to make the jump on their own. This will allow people who are overweight the opportunity to still have fun.

The cost of a tandem jump could be from $70 to over $300. If there are a lot of skydiving centers where you live, you should check each one out so you can get the best deal.

The static line jump had its origins from the military. This is because your parachute will automatically open a few seconds after you jump off the plane. The jump is done at an altitude of 3,000 feet and after a series of jumps you will now be the one to pull the cord.
