How to succeed in International Math Olympiad?

I will answer the question in different dimensions.

Succeeding in olympiad requires lot of hardwork, ability to find shortcut in solving the problems,strategic planning and insatiable thrist to solve problems,willing to undergo lot of stress,thinking hard in a relaxed way about the problem all the time.

Formulate your own theory by looking at a problem and extrapolate the concept out of a problem. Do not get obsessed about winning a medal but about a problem.

One thing do not force yourself to study for olympiad. You should love being challenged with in your limits and then expand you limit from start. forceful application will lead to diminshing capability and confidence which will leave a deep mark. You do not have to be a genius but you should some reasonable amount of interest in solving problems.

Do not jump to high level concepts unless you have mastery over fundamentals.

I spoke with olympiad winners personally their main advice is to solve as many problems as you can. Learn the art to be creative and problem strategy.

Do not learn to solve the problem the hard way but rather smart way. But how?. when you are solving a problem ask is there any short cut to solve this problem?.

I would recommend "Solving Mathematical Problems: A Personal Perspective " by terrance tao

"How to solve by it" Polya.

Difference between mnc and tnc?

Multinational companies are not a recent phenomenon, but it is a fact that today because of modern and fast and efficient means of communications and transportation, companies and businesses find it easy to operate in many other countries apart from their parent country. It is customary to call such companies as multinational corporations. However, there is another word used for similar companies operating in more than a single country and that is transnational. This article tries to highlight the differences between multinational and transnational, in order to remove any doubt in the reader's mind about these two concepts.

There is no doubt that when a company grows at a rate faster than its products or services can be utilized by people in the home country, it tries to internationalize its business in anticipation of greater profits. Thus, when a company invests in another country besides its own and does business with another country, it is termed as a multinational. A single company can have operations in any number of countries. Today we have multinationals referred to as MNC's.

A different word has been coined to refer to corporations having a presence in more than a single country. Transnational is also a business entity having business operations in more than a single country, and many of the MNC's classify to be called as transnational.

The basic difference between a multinational and a transnational lies in the fact that transnational company is borderless, as it does not consider any particular country as its base, home or headquarters. Multinational companies, though having a parent country and a centralized decision making process, adopts a selling strategy that is unique to every other country where it has investments. This strategy is made keeping in mind the requirements of the local markets and the rules and regulations of the government. Often MNC's have to abide by sensitivities and culture of the local people.

Martial Arts
Learning Theories

What is the strongest martial arts technique?

There is no such thing as the "strongest" technique. "Strength" exists in the muscles, and condition of the body. Martial Art techniques have "power" which is determined by the "force" that is applied to a target or opponent through scientific principles such as equilibrium, leverage, inertia, acceleration, momentum, reaction force, and both physical and mental concentration.

These attributes are not inherent to any one system of Martial Art, but shared by all of them since the Martial Art is a concept and educational format that relies on utilizing the laws of nature, and advanced knowledge of tactics and strategy in applying those laws. Each system of Martial Art promotes a preference and priority as to how and when to utilize the techniques, but most legitimate systems includes all of them to some degree.

Constricting holds, and leveraging pressure on joints and limbs can cause debilitating damage, unconsciousness, or death to a person. Throws and projections can likewise seriously injure or kill an opponent. Striking techniques with the knees, elbows, hands and feet have a measurable applied force that can far exceed what is needed to break bones (also boards or bricks), and can render an opponent unconscious or kill them with a single strike. A rapidly accelerated kick (such as a spinning hook kick), or the well reinforced thrust of a side kick (skipping or spinning), when properly executed, would physically generate the greatest net force, thereby resulting in the most damage to a given target.

However, even the most powerful technique is useless if it does not connect with the target as required, so what ultimately works is the ideal technique applied accurately at the optimum moment in any given situation.

How long does it take to become a pediatric nurse?

A person can qualify as a licensed practical nurse in one year. Registered nurse programs take two, three, or four years. Specializing for nurses is largely a matter of experience rather than formal education. However, a nurse can take a Master's Degree in a specialty, such as pediatrics, and then be designated a "Pediatric Nurse Practitioner." Requirements for nurse practitioner status vary from state to state. It's best to check with a local college or university that has a nursing degree program to get information for the state where you live. It is my understanding that you have to have your RN degree (usually 2-4 yrs) then you can get a job that specializes in pediatrics to get your training. I was told that basically RN's are trained to be able to do anything in the healthcare setting, but you get your specialized training hands on.
