A rummy tournament is a round-based game mostly. The players have to compete in each round. Winners of every round proceed to the next, or are rewarded with a cash prize. They may even get a ticket to finale. In the finale, the winners are ranked as per their position in winning circle. They are then given the promised cash amount as prize. The tourneys are more challenging than practice and cash games, and thus, it boosts intelligence in the following ways:

  • Provokes Analytical Thinking

A rummy card game makes you think on every move you make and that your opponent makes. It provokes your analytical thinking power so that you can analyze the situation at hand and take a right decision – be it deciding discarding a particular card or picking a certain one to form a sequence or a set. Analytical thinking helps you in real life as well in every way. It motivates you to think practically and see through problems, so that you find the accurate solutions.

  • Improves Brain Power

When playing card games, you take effort to think and analyze like mentioned above. Basically, the game improves your brainpower and encourages you to think towards one particular direction – make a valid hand to declare the game at the soonest. With this goal in mind, you take all the necessary calls, such as how many pure sequences your hand can give you, or how to use the Joker cards, etc. Improved brain power then aids in winning the game.

  • Makes You Observant

In online rummy, the most important skill you need is to be observant. If you do not do that, the chances of winnings are none. You have to pay attention on the table on every move of every player and not the immediate opponent. This allows you to stay connected to the progress of the game. You will know all the cards discarded till now and the possible cards you can get from the closed pile. By observing the open pile, you can also get clues to the sequences and sets in the hand of the opponents.

  • Take Calculative Risks

In card games, you do have to take risks sometimes. For instance in rummy, if you get a bad hand with too many unrelated cards and no Joker cards, then you do have to take risk than quitting the game, and try to replace these cards with suitable ones. With thinking power, you can do the necessary, and change a weak hand into a winning one.

  • Bluff and Trick

When you play rummy online free or for money, one of the ways to secure a win is by bluffing and tricking opponents in giving you a card you need to make a sequence or a set. For instance, you have 3, 5, and 6 of Club. Now you discard 3 of Club, and confuse the opponent, who discards 4 of Club, thus helping you to form the pure sequence – 4, 5, and 6 of Club.

  • Make Wise Moves

A rummy online free game not only helps practice for difficult challenges such as cash games and tournaments, but makes you wiser. With free practice games, you learn when to play which card. This way, you can make wise moves when faced with ups and downs in tourneys and money-oriented games.

  • Keeps Your Mind Focused

When you play rummy online for cash, you have to weigh all the pros and cons of making a certain move. Have too many Joker cards? Is it wiser to discard a few so that you can make room for new cards? Should you retain the Joker cards and see how the game progresses or do you want to utilize these in pure sequences? This is just one such example, which exemplifies how you have to weigh the pros and cons before taking a decision.

To Conclude

Tournaments are one of the most challenging formats of rummy. Be it a freeroll tourney or one with a buy-in, pay equal attention to those. The difficulty level of the game makes you empowered psychologically, and your intelligence is also boosted in the above-mentioned ways.

Ways to Teach Your Kids Emotional Intelligence

Parents today are increasingly realizing that teaching kids ways to manage their emotions and social behaviour is equally important in ensuring a childs overall well-being. Pixabay

BY PUJA GUPTA

What defines a brilliant child? Is it academic scores or inherited family traits? Surely, test scores can’t be the only way to determine a childs ability. At one point in time, IQ was viewed as the primary determinant of growth and while it remains an important aspect of a childs development, parents today are increasingly realizing that teaching kids ways to manage their emotions and social behaviour is equally important in ensuring a childs overall well-being.

Young children are exposed to and struggle with many emotionally turbulent stimuli both inside and outside their homes; right from packed academic and extra-curricular schedules to class bullies. Yet, burdened by expectations, a child is expected to react to these stimuli within the boundaries of socially acceptable behaviour.

Kids get scolded by parents, teachers and relatives for throwing tantrums and being difficult, not realizing that these are often innocent acts which don’t require judgements but a considerate, sustained intervention by caregivers to boost kids’ Emotional Intelligence(EQ), helping them deal with their daily lives in a more healthy way, underlines Simon Jacob, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Toiing.

The good news is that this is very doable through coaching and even a fraction of the effort we put into developing academic excellence in children can help them grow into well-rounded individuals with a healthy attitude towards life, Jacob says.

Here are some lifestyle tips shared by Jacob to nurture and develop EI (Emotional Intelligence) or EQ (Emotional Quotient) in kids:

Help them identify emotions:

No one notices and understands kids’ unexpressed emotions and unstated needs better than parents. The way your child understands and manages their emotions can determine their outlook and personality. So your role here lies in helping them identify various emotions and navigate this complex world by having conversations around healthy ways to react to different situations. Let them comprehend and react to different feelings running in ways that suit their personality and help them find the best way to channelize & express their emotions.

Two-way communication:

Kids learn faster and develop holistically in an open, connected and trusted environment. They are able to identify, understand and exhibit their feelings freely. A two-way conversation opens doors to a healthier parent-child relationship, where the parents inspires confidence in their children. Parents need to talk to them with an open mind, and let them have a share of voice along with helping them distinguish between right and wrong.

Power of Play:

Play is incredibly important and allows kids to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity and emotional skills. Role play, storytelling, collaborative games and simple DIY activities such as labelling emotions can inculcate resilience, team spirit, improved communication skills and compassion for others.

Motivate and engage:

As a parent, it is important that we acknowledge our child’s feelings and perspectives. This allows a child to express their feelings without the fear of judgement or admonishment, which in turn helps them familiarise themselves with different kinds of emotions. Encouraging them through active listening and by engaging with them actively in conversations around their behaviour can really help them increase their self-awareness and over a period of time, children learn to introspect and arrive at thought out decisions independently.

Here’s how MRI may Predict Intelligence Level in Children

MRI may predict intelligence level in children

Researchers have used ensemble methods based on deep learning 3D analysis networks to answer the global Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) prevision challenge for children.

Importantly, they made predictions for both the fluid intelligence level and the target variable independent from age, gender, brain size or MRI scanner used.

MRI is a common technique used to obtain images of human internal organs and tissues. Scientists wondered whether the intelligence level can be predicted from an MRI brain image.

“Our team develops deep learning methods for computer vision tasks in MRI data analysis, amongst other things,” said study researcher Ekaterina Kondratyev from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) in Russia.

“In this study, we applied ensembles of classifiers to 3D of super precision neural networks: with this approach, one can classify an image as it is, without first reducing its dimension and, therefore, without losing valuable information,” said Kondratyeva.

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) database contains a total of over 11,000 structural and functional MRI images of children aged 9-10.

In 2013, NIH launched the first grand-scale study of its kind in adolescent brain research, Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development, to see if and how teenagers’ hobbies and habits affect their further brain development.

NIH scientists launched an international competition, making the enormous NIH database available to a broad community for the first time ever.

The participants were given a task of building a predictive model based on brain images.

As part of the competition, the Skoltech team applied neural networks for MRI image processing.

To do this, they built a network architecture enabling several mathematical models to be applied to the same data in order to increase the prediction accuracy, and used a novel ensemble method to analyse the MRI data.

In their recent study, Skoltech researchers focused on predicting the intelligence level, or the so called “fluid intelligence”, which characterises the biological abilities of the nervous system and has little to do with acquired knowledge or skills.

Importantly, they made predictions for both the fluid intelligence level and the target variable independent from age, gender, brain size or MRI scanner used.

Although the prediction accuracy is less than perfect, the models produced during this competition will help shed light on various aspects of cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of adolescents. (IANS)
