Intelligence is not limited to those with high IQs. There are also potential methods to develop one's cognitive abilities and become smarter
Here are some simple actions that could help you become a smarter person:
1 Come up with 10 ideas every day Think about how to reduce poverty, how to solve a daily problem you have, interesting movie ideas, or anything. It doesn't matter what subject your ideas fall into, as long as you're working your brain and your idea muscles. Your list might even lead to a new startup idea or writing subject.
2 Share what you learn with other people If you find someone to debate and analyse ideas with, you can add to each other's knowledge and gain new perspectives. Also, when you can explain ideas to someone else, it means you've definitely mastered the concept.You can even share what you learn without directly talking to someone. Many people like to start blogs so they can engage others in an online dialogue.
3 Follow your questions If you see or hear about something cool, don't just let the moment pass. Follow up -pursue your curiosity and find the answer to your question.
4 Read the newspaper It will help you become more aware of the important things happening around the world. You'll learn to form your own opinions and connect the dots between seemingly unrelated things. You'll also have a lot more to talk about at parties or with friends.
5 Use a word-of-the day app You will increase your vocabulary, which can help you in competitive tests like the SAT or GRE, or even just sound more eloquent in daily interactions. You can also try to learn new vocabulary in a differ ent language. Every day, try to add five to 10 more words to the foreign language you are trying to pursue. You can use LiveMocha, Basuu, or DuoLingo.
6 Talk to someone you find interesting Even if they're strangers, don't be afraid to approach them. Ask about their interests and how they discovered them. Often, you learn the most from people you barely know.
7 Do something scary Getting out of our com fort zone always makes us wiser. Every day, push yourself a little further. Try public speaking, lead a meeting by volunteering a proposal at work or reach out to someone you really admire by sending a quick letter or email.
8 Take online courses Check out some of the most popular online courses for professionals, relevant to you. Make sure you don't overload yourself; commit to one to two and truly focus on them. The syllabus will also keep you on track, so you know you will be doing something every day, whether it's listening to a lecture or working on an assignment.
9 Play `smart' games Some games, like chess and Scrabble, expand your mind. Certain games can train the brain and muscles to perform better in real-life activities. Challenge yoursel f when you play them. For example, play Scrabble without a dictionary. You can also solve puzzles via games like Sudoku, 2048 and Doors.
10 Exercise, and eat a healthy diet Opt for brain foods to fuel your thinking, and avoid alcohol and heavy meals that will make you sluggish. When your energy dips, take a walk. The more blood f lowing into your brain, the better your performance. Great thinkers like Mahatma Gandhi and Charles Darwin were famous for their long walks.

Helen Adams Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree.By age 10, Helen had mastered Braille as well as the manual alphabet and even learned to use the typewriter. By the time she was 16, Helen could speak well enough to go to preparatory school and to college. In 1904 she was graduated "cum laude" from Radcliffe College.She dedicated her life to improving the conditions of blind and the deaf-blind around the world, lecturing in more than 25 countries on the five major continents. Wherever she appeared, she brought new courage to millions of blind people.
Mitochondrial DNA Variability of Domestic River Buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) Populations: Genetic Evidence for Domestication of River Buffalo in Indian Subcontinent
A team comprising M. Nagarajan and Koodali Nimisha from Central University of Kerala, Kasaragod, and Mr. Satish Kumar from CSIR - Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad, have produced genetic evidence to establish that the river buffalo was first domesticated in India, from where it reached Mesopotamia and spread to other parts of the world and they have unravelled the domestication history of the river buffalo ( Bubalus bubalis ) by analyzing more than 400 DNA sequences representing buffalo populations in India, Pakistan, Iran, and Egypt.
The scientists have now come up with evidence to prove that the river buffalo was first domesticated in the northwestern region of India, probably in the places of distribution of the present day Mehsana, Surati, and Pandharpuri breeds.
The study concludes that the domestication process involved a continuous influx of wild buffalo genes into the Indian domestic stocks after the initial domestication event.
The study excludes the Mesopotamian region as the place of domestication of the river buffalo. With a population of 98 million in India, 26 million in Pakistan, and 3.9 million in Egypt, the river buffalo constitutes about 90 per cent of the total global buffalo population and accounts for 92 per cent of the total milk produced from the species. Seals from the Indus Valley civilization dating around 2500 BC and those from the Akkadia era (2100 BC to 2500 BC) of the Mesopotamian civilisation have been found to depict images of the buffalo.
The study indicated that the migration of the river buffalo from India to Iran, followed by genetic drift, would have contributed to the high genetic variability in the Iranian buffalo. The lack of genetic similarities between the Iranian buffalo and other buffalo populations, especially Pakistan buffalo, suggests that the migration of river buffalo from India to Iran could not have occurred through land but probably through sea.

Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the third President of the United States (1801–1809). He was an ardent proponent of democracy and embraced the principles of republicanism and the rights of the individual with worldwide influence.Although criticized by many present-day scholars over the issues of racism and slavery, Jefferson is consistently rated as one of the greatest U.S. presidents.
