All of us want to be smarter than we already are. So, many of us devote ourselves to a lifelong quest to learn more and expand our minds. Whether we’re reading the newspaper, picking up a new book, watching documentaries or learning a new skill by watching YouTube videos, our underlying purpose is generally to become smarter individuals.

But sometimes what we think we’ve learned just doesn’t stick. We might think we’re masters at a subject, only to realize we’ve forgotten everything we’ve learned. Other times, the distractions in our everyday lives make it difficult to absorb any new information at all. So, how can we become smarter about learning and become better at it, too? How do we train our brains to work better?

The answer is that there are ways to do that. Check out these four brain hacks — vetted by research — to make us smarter.

The Wooing of Jared Kushner: How the Saudis Got a Friend in the White House

.

Senior American officials were worried. Since the early months of the Trump administration, Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and Middle East adviser, had been having private, informal conversations with Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the favorite son of Saudi Arabia’s king.

Given Mr. Kushner’s political inexperience, the private exchanges could make him susceptible to Saudi manipulation, said three former senior American officials. In an effort to tighten practices at the White House, a new chief of staff tried to reimpose longstanding procedures stipulating that National Security Council staff members should participate in all calls with foreign leaders.

But even with the restrictions in place, Mr. Kushner, 37, and Prince Mohammed, 33, kept chatting, according to three former White House officials and two others briefed by the Saudi royal court. In fact, they said, the two men were on a first-name basis, calling each other Jared and Mohammed in text messages and phone calls.

Appeals To Scott Walker: Don’t Stain Legacy, Veto Bills

Leave a comment

.

A bipartisan group of political figures appealed to Gov. Scott Walker on Thursday to avoid staining his legacy and behaving like a sore loser by signing legislation that would weaken the powers of the Democrat who defeated him.

Rather than notching another partisan victory in his final weeks in office, they said, Walker should think bigger. Think of your recently deceased father, they pleaded. Think of former President George H.W. Bush. Think of Christ.

“You can have a long, successful career ahead,” longtime Republican and major GOP donor Sheldon Lubar wrote to Walker in a deeply personal email. “Don’t stain it by this personal, poor-loser action. Ask yourself, what would my father say, what would the greatest man who ever lived, Jesus Christ, say.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office recommends little to no jail time for Michael Flynn in exchange for assistance

Leave a comment

.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn provided “substantial assistance” in the special counsel’s Russia investigation and should receive little to no prison time, federal prosecutors said in court papers filed Tuesday.

Flynn met with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team 19 times after he pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators, according to a sentencing memo filed by Mueller’s office.

The court papers offered few new details on the Russia probe but the prosecutors, citing Flynn’s extensive cooperation in “several ongoing investigations,” said a sentence that includes no prison time is “appropriate and warranted.”

Flynn Was Key Cooperator and Deserves Little Prison Time, Mueller Team Says

Leave a comment

.

Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s first national security adviser, helped substantially with the special counsel’s investigation and should receive little to no prison time for lying to federal investigators, prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Mr. Flynn was a key cooperator who helped the Justice Department with several investigations, prosecutors for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, said. He sat for 19 interviews with Mr. Mueller’s office and other prosecutors and handed over documents and communications, they said.

“His early cooperation was particularly valuable because he was one of the few people with long-term and firsthand insight” into the subject of Mr. Mueller’s investigation — Russia’s election interference and whether any Trump associates conspired, prosecutors wrote in a sentencing recommendation memorandum and an addendum that was heavily blacked out.
