His rule markedrepparttar 109445 beginning of written history andrepparttar 109446 era of dynasties, which followed in succession untilrepparttar 109447 30th Dynasty. The Egyptian Dynasty ended withrepparttar 109448 suicide of Cleopatra, andrepparttar 109449 Roman army under Octavian taking Egypt in 30 BC.

·The Old Kingdom (2980 BC-2475 BC): During this era, principles of central government were established. Menes (Narmar) was called "the King of Both Lands and Bearer of Both Crowns". The unification of both kingdoms had a significant impact onrepparttar 109450 development of Egypt in all aspects of life. Hieroglyphic writing was devised.

Kings were actively involved in securingrepparttar 109451 country's borders. Trade between Egypt and Sudan was developed. Egypt, then embarked on a glorious period of its history, known asrepparttar 109452 pyramid builder's age, whererepparttar 109453 first pyramid of Saqqara was built. Withrepparttar 109454 flourishing of agriculture, industry and trade,repparttar 109455 first river fleet was introduced byrepparttar 109456 Egyptians. Withrepparttar 109457 unification of Upper& Lower Egypt, it was necessary to establish a strong army whose headquarter wasrepparttar 109458 city of Menf. Narmar also establishedrepparttar 109459 Egyptian first fleet in Withrepparttar 109460 beginning ofrepparttar 109461 third Pharaonic Dynasty in 2686 B.C, Egypt was exposed to manyraids by repparttar 109462 nomads on its eastern borders,repparttar 109463 thing that urged king Zosar to establish army with its own military traditions and its distinct banners. This army was regarded asrepparttar 109464 first regular army in history, Later on, " Zosar " organized Egypt into districts where he set, companies. Moreover, he established his own royal army made up of corps, and established a substantial fleet as well. King Narmer is thought to have reigned c. 3150 BCE as first king ofrepparttar 109465 1st dynasty (and/or last king ofrepparttar 109466 0 dynasty) of a unified ancient Egypt. The rebus of his name as shown on his palette and on other inscriptions is composed of a chisel, thought to be read mr, above a catfish, thought to be read as n'r. King Narmer, or Catfish as he could also be called, appears thus on seal impressions fromrepparttar 109467 1st Dynasty tombs of King Den (tomb) and King Ka (Tomb) at Abydos . Narmer's name and that of his possible predecessor Scorpion have also been found on pottery vessels fromrepparttar 109468 site of Minshat Abu Omar inrepparttar 109469 eastern Delta.

Narmer's importance asrepparttar 109470 probable unifier of Lower and Upper Egypt is indicated primarily byrepparttar 109471 Palette andrepparttar 109472 Macehead which are attributed to him. His name-rebus appear on both. But his power inrepparttar 109473 region must have extended further, since Egyptian sherds inscribed with Narmer's name have also been found . The Narmer Palette was discovered by J.E.Quibell at Hierakonpolis in 1897-98. The obverse is divided into three registers, uppermost of which gives his name in a serekh flanked by human-faced bovines. The second register shows Narmer wearingrepparttar 109474 White Crown of Upper Egypt smiting an enemy. The third register shows dead, nude enemies. Onrepparttar 109475 reverserepparttar 109476 upper register showing his name-serekh is repeated. The second register shows Narmer now wearingrepparttar 109477 Red Crown of Lower Egypt, inspecting rows of nude, decapitated enemies. The third register shows a man mastering serpent-necked lions, andrepparttar 109478 fourth register shows a bull destroying a town and trampling a dead enemy.

How to use anchoring for accelerated learning.

Anchoring is a powerful NLP technique for ensuring access to our greatest personal resources. Anchoring means creating an association of ideas, feelings, thoughts or states with a specific stimulus. This technique is not new. In a famous series of experiments, Dr. Ivan Pavlov placed hungry dogs near meat so they could smell it and see it but not reach it. The meat acted as a powerful stimulus torepparttar dog’s digestive processes, causing them to salivate copiously. Whilerepparttar 109432 dogs were in this intense state of hunger and salivation, Pavlov consistently rang a bell with a specific tone. Pavlov showed that he could then inducerepparttar 109433 dog’s state of copious salivation, just by ringingrepparttar 109434 bell. The sight and smell of meat was no longer needed. Pavlov had created within each dog’s central nervous system, a neurological link betweenrepparttar 109435 sound ofrepparttar 109436 bell andrepparttar 109437 state of hunger and salivation. All Pavlov had to do was ringrepparttar 109438 same bell andrepparttar 109439 dogs would salivate. In other words he had created an anchor.

Whenever a person is in an intense state whererepparttar 109440 mind and body are strongly involved together and a specific stimulus is consistently and simultaneously applied atrepparttar 109441 peak ofrepparttar 109442 state,repparttar 109443 stimulus andrepparttar 109444 state become neurologically linked. Then, when everrepparttar 109445 same stimulus is applied,repparttar 109446 associated state is induced. Have you noticed how this principle is used by professional athletes? Tennis players for example often use a certain rhythm for bouncingrepparttar 109447 ball to put themselves in their best state as they serve, or weight lifters use a certain pattern of breathing to induce best state just before they lift. You could if you wanted to, anchor five different resourceful states ontorepparttar 109448 five digits of one hand. The states might be exuberance, confidence, motivation, decisiveness and relaxed alertness. The stimuli would be unobtrusive and you could triggerrepparttar 109449 stimulus selectively, whenever you wanted and needed a boost! How would this change your life forrepparttar 109450 better?
