Games People Play is considered a timeless classic among the field of Psychology. It has sold nearly five million copies since its original publication in 1964. Although published fifty years ago, Berne’s theory as well as “games” he includes in his book still hold true today. The book is separated into two parts. The first half explains Berne’s theory of “Transactional Analysis”, his unique interpretation of social analysis. This theory describes human beings having a possible three roles (or ego states) during transactions: the Parent, Adult, and Child. He believed that unwanted behavior can be caused due to the switching or confusion of these particular roles. For example, a parent with an inability to create boundaries for their children can succumb the parental role, creating a Child-Child transaction (and overall relationship), which can result in negative consequences for both individuals.
Filming your concert can be incredibly important, especially if you’re seeing one of your favorite bands and want to capture the memories you’ll be reminiscing about forever. I’ve been to more concerts than I can count, and have attempted to film merely every single one with a different approach. This has enabled me to have some field testing under my belt in order to determine which video camera works best for live concert conditions. As far as sound goes, any internal microphone can suffice; however, for filming, it really depends on a few aspects: your budget, the exact shot you want, and any accessories you may want to supplement the filming. Sound is very hard to achieve when it comes to shooting live concerts — the bass is almost always distorted and if you want top notch quality, you’re going to need a cinema grade camera for that. The best type of camera to buy would be one that is great in lower light conditions. Point-and-shoot cameras are stated to be mediocre when it comes to this, although all of them typically come with a low light condition capability. We’ve found a few gems. Let’s get into it.
As screens becomes more prominent in our culture and everyday lives, it is important we take our beloved eyes into consideration. Does being in front of monitors and screens (TV’s, computers, and even phones) have any physiological affect on our minds and bodies?
Starting at screens all day can cause problems such as headaches, eye strain, and dry eyes. We’ve all experienced it one way or another. Computer eye-wear not only enhance your vision when partaking in work or your favorite activities (such as gaming or watching YouTube videos) in front of screens but protect you from these detrimental side effects that may arise when being on the computer all day. Whether it’s at work, school, or merely at home in your leisure time, it can all add up. Video display glasses are definitely worth the investment. The post is all Gunnar Optiks — to put it simply, they have basically the highest quality video glasses out there. All other competitors are cheaper, $10 knock offs at local superstores.
When my friend walked into the room after our work out holding his protein drink, I didn’t think much of it. I continued to watch TV while sipping on my own concoction of post-workout goodness. Suddenly, I heard a “check this out” coming from his direction. He held the cup in front of my face and what I thought was merely another shaker cup filled with a protein mix was actually swirling inside of the bottle! I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never heard of such thing before. I’ve always been a bit wary of shaker cups because my experience has always been having to scrape the extra protein powder out of the bottle that gets stuck to the bottom, let alone the putrid smell that builds up with time. But alas, my life has forever changed since I’ve been introduced to electric shaker cups. Intrigued, I set out to find the best one on the market. Here’s what I found.
Choosing a video camera to film for YouTube can get tricky. As the years continue, we’re all starting to have our own YouTube channels. Whether it’s for filming your family and friends to share on social media, providing information for others to help with everyday life tasks, vlogging, or to merely exemplify your talents with comedic sketches, there is one thing all of us need: a proper video camcorder to do so. Whether you’re attempting to monetize off of your ideas or simply have the most optimal quality of video possible for sharing purposes, it is important you find the best camera that falls under your budget. We reviewed the price, quality, and other main/technical features of the best camcorders on the market specifically for recording YouTube videos. Yes, using your iPhone is always an option; however, this is more recommended for outdoor shooting, and let’s face it: it just won’t cut it if you’re trying to take your videos to the next level. Let’s see what we’ve found.
Quest Nutrition is at it again, continuing their dominance in the fitness community with their beloved Quest Bar. One of the largest strategies for their success is the social media presence of their brand: Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. They marketed the brand new flavor, Cookies N’ Cream, numerous times, particularly with an everyday count down for the last few weeks. “Have you tried it yet?” “Do you think it will really taste like Cookies and Cream like they claim?” I was asked by many, as everyone knows how obsessed I am with their bars. Being a chocolate brownie and cookie dough advocate myself, I was ready for a new flavor as eating only a few flavors a week was getting relatively tiresome. My girlfriend surprised me with a visit to the local GNC store and picked me up a few of their brand new bars. Here’s some info on the bar and what I thought.
