Colorado Springs, CO, January 19, 2017 - (Newswire.com) - One-on-one brain training company LearningRx has announced the winner of its national “Picture Our New President” contest.
Lexie Hein, an adult LearningRx graduate from Appleton, Wisconsin designed the winning idea for adding President-elect Donald Trump to LearningRx’s existing picture-graphic lineup of U.S. Presidents. Lexie suggested a baseball umpire with TR on his chest padding, “TR-Ump” which connects to President Obama by having the “O llama” extend his back leg on home plate, as the TR umpire signals he is safe. A graphic illustrator created the final artwork, which will be part of LearningRx’s full Presidential mnemonics images.
Lexie, who decided to go through brain training in 2011, was having difficulty passing her medical boards even though she had always been a good student. After LearningRx brain training, Lexie said that she was able to pass her boards and recently graduated from Medical school. She said that through LearningRx training, she “learned how to learn.”
The contest is derived from one of the first activities every LearningRx student masters: the ability to recite the names of all (now) 45U.S. Presidents. The memory picture-graphic combines silly pictures and fun associations to help students “picture” what they want to remember - in the order they need to remember it.
For example, in the attached graphic, you first see a can of D’s, and that sounds sort of like Kennedy. And that can of D’s is leaning into a yawning sun (Johnson), which is getting nicked (Nixon) by a Ford (Ford) balanced in a cart (Carter), beneath which is a ray gun (Reagan) shooting at a bush (George H.W. Bush) holding up a clothesline for hanging a clean ton (Clinton) of clothes. Of course, the other end of the clothesline is tied to another bush (George W. Bush) from which an “O” llama (Obama) is eating a leaf.
