Hello,

I don't want to impose on you but you are the only forum that can help me, please don't bother yourself answering all question at once. (I need it on Monday)

A- Some colleagues of mine who lead the Heart-Math Institute trained a Fortune 100 manufacturing division in processes which enable one to change heart rate variability and generate chemicals that are positive.

I didn't understand it.. Can a person control the rate of their heart? Explain what the author meant please.

B- The brain speaks: "My mission, as a brain, is to keep myself alive with as much pleasure and avoidance of pain as possible. As far as connecting on an emotional level with caring and love, that is my only secondary function with the heart's effort to influence me."

Could you please paraphrase it so that I can understand it?

C- Some argue that the separation of "churchstate" mania among an alarmed few has pulled the heart and love out of the secular world altogether.

You've explained this to me before and I'm so thankful for that, but I need to know who the alarmed few are, please.

E- Indeed, the separation of church state mania has pulled the heart and love out of the secular domain. Recently in a conference, a school administrator said: "Yes, those are the feely-touchy things that get in the way of the bottom line results of learning."

I didn't understand what this has to do with the separation of church and state mania, please explain the quotation or paraphrase it so that I can translate it.

F- He concludes that the heart recognizes the human happiness and human success is a "… result f a more gentle, balance, caring, connected, and loving orientation to the world."

Please provide another meaning to "orientation", paraphrase or explain what's mean by it.

G- Teachers recently told me of the increasing numbers of students at all grade levels who simply put their names on the standard test and then doodle the bubble circles on the score sheet. So much for

assessing achievement!

Please paraphrase it, I got the meaning but it's hard to translate this way:(

G- In further support of this view of improving the quality of mental performance by connecting the heart in "heart-brain" processes, there have been many psychologists who have advanced the cause of "emotions."

What does it mean?

H- Goleman documents the success of ninety-five Harvard graduates who were followed through middle age. He found that the "men with the highest test score in college were not particularly successful compared to their lower-scoring peers…

I didn't understand the idea of following them at middle age. What does he mean?

I- This created a jealous rage, and to prove his devotion, the boy and his jealous girlfriend led the other girl out into an unsuspecting car ride and killed her.

How did they kill her? What does in red that mean?

J-Ten years after graduating from high school, only one in four were at the highest level of young people of comparable age in their chosen profession, and many were doing much less well.

Could you please explain it? I didn't get the picture.

K- "I think we've discovered the 'dutiful'- people who know how to achieve in the system," notes . "But valedictorians struggle

as surely as we all do."

L- Self-esteem affirmation

What is affirmation? Does it refer to affirmative sentences?

M- The key to success in individual and organizational learning and performance is in developing relationship processes to help people achieve "process" ways of perceiving and engaging in the world of others.

It must be he's using the wrong term. You're right.

Wrong reading on your part. It's
through, i.e. until (from graduation to/until middle-age).
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies

No, it's exercising, promoting the self-esteem.

These are the sensitive things that impede/disturb the basic (bottom line) progress of learning.
G- Teachers recently told me of the increasing numbers of students at all grade levels who simply put their names on the standard test and then doodle the bubble circles on the score sheet. So much for

This definitely wasn't the best way of assessing achievement.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

What does it mean


who have promoted/advertised the idea/cause of
I- This created a jealous rage, and to prove his devotion, the boy and his jealous girlfriend led the other girl out into an unsuspecting car ride and killed her.

How did they kill her? What does in red that mean


they invited her to a car ride without her being suspicious of their true reasons; not clear how she was killed;
J-Ten years after graduating from high school, only one in four were at the highest level of young people of comparable age in their chosen profession, and many were doing much less well

Ten years after graduation
from that class/group
only 4
performed as well as others of the same age
in whatever profession they were in

Thus, that group had poor results
