The Solution

The Solution

According to Ebbinghaus, and with the way he modeled the forgetting curves (a decreasing logarithmic form), every time something new is learned, a large percentage is forgotten in the hours that follow. 

However, that trend changes if we repeat what we study spaced in time, because the speed at which the retention percentage decreases is going to be lower when we repeat more something.

Is There Any Hope to Avoid Forgetting to Occur?

Although this finding could lead us to conclude that studying something new does not make sense, because sooner or later (especially earlier) we will end up forgetting practically everything, this same German psychologist also asserted that as memories are consolidated, the forgetting curve is flattened more; and with that, a point is reached where we will forever remember what new we learn.

And finally, a few days later we ended up forgetting everything.

Understanding WiFi

Many cities use WiFi to provide free or low-cost internet access to people. WiFi networks are easy to set up, inexpensive and unobtrusive.

 A wireless network uses radio waves, just like cell phones, radios and televisions . 

  • A computer's wireless adapter decodes data into a radio signal and transmits it via an antenna. 
  • The wireless router receives the signal, interprets it, and sends the information to the internet using a wired ethernet connection. 
  • The process also happens in reverse.
