Qualitative data indicated that the majority of the students experienced improvements. The students appeared to show increases in concentration, and memory skills, self-determination and self- esteem, motivation and participation, leadership and socialization, peer relationships and collaboration.

Overall, many parents believed that their children had gained a feeling of mastery, which had then helped them to develop a more autonomous approach to daily activities.

Around fifty University students were either taught to perform a simple magic trick or given techniques to boost their rapport skills. Each day participants performed the trick or used their rapport building techniques, assessed how successful they had been, and rated their positive and negative mood PANAS scale.

Nineteen participants provided enough data to be entered into the analysis.

Contrary to the hypothesis, the affective states and success rates of participants who had learned the magic trick were not significantly different from those who had been taught rapport building skills.

Discussion This paper has presented an overview of the many systematic programs that aim to promote wellbeing by teaching people how to perform magic tricks. These programs have been developed within both a health setting and an educational context, and date back to the turn of the twentieth century.

Various authors have identified the key benefits that might flow from a magic-based intervention, including a boost in self-esteem, an increased feeling of mastery, and gains in motor skills. A relatively small amount of work has adopted a more systematic approach to evaluation of the benefits of magic-based interventions.

Similar work examining the potential psychological benefits of magic-based interventions has assessed a range of factors, including general life-satisfaction, self-esteem and behavioural problems. Again, overall positive results have been reported.

Although promising, there are several reasons to treat the results from both sets of studies with caution.

Second, almost all of the studies have involved relatively small numbers of self-selected participants, and so it is unclear whether the findings apply to larger cohorts. Third, almost all of the studies have involved participants who are facing physical and psychological challenges, and so it is not yet clear whether magic-based intervention are beneficial to non-clinical populations again, Bagienski is the only exception, and the null results reported in that study give reason to be cautious.

Finally, the magic-based intervention employed in the studies differed on many dimensions including one to one versus group delivery, the duration of the intervention, and the tricks involved and so it is problematic to assess which parameters are maximally associated with successful outcomes.

It is hoped that future researchers will conduct additional work into the efficacy of magic-based interventions. Hopefully, this work will build upon the existing research base by the addition of control groups, using larger numbers of participants, exploring whether such interventions are effective for non-clinical populations, and exploring which aspects of the intervention are especially effective.

In addition, whereas almost all of the previous work has aimed simply to document the potential impact of interventions, future research could adopt a more theoretical approach and explore why these interventions might be beneficial. A large amount of research has examined the potential therapeutic impact of the performing arts and there are several journals are dedicated to the topic, including the Journal of Music Therapy, the Journal of Poetry Therapy, the American Journal of Dance Therapy, and Drama Therapy Review.

In comparison, only a small amount of work has examined the relationship between magic-based interventions and wellbeing. Removing these potential barriers may encourage more performing arts researchers and practitioners to explore magic-based interventions.

We believe that this would be highly desirable, in part because magic-based interventions have several practical advantages over other performing arts. For example, most people, including children, find the idea of being able to perform a magic trick an engaging, attractive and interesting proposition. Second, many entry-level magic tricks can be learned quickly and require relatively modest skills.

Third, a large number of tricks require inexpensive equipment and so are cost effective. Fourth, it is easy to create activities that can be tailored to specific abilities and situations, and can be used in both a one-to-one and small group setting. Fifth, magic allows people to practice on their own but also involves social interaction during a performance. Finally, magic tricks represent a highly structured form of interaction that can be used in everyday life to break the ice and build rapport with friends and strangers.

Conclusions The work into the efficacy of magic-based interventions has been reported in specialist academic journals and publications produced by the magic community. This paper aims to bring this literature to a wider audience and to review its findings. The literature suggests that learning to perform magic ticks can help promote both physical and psychological wellbeing.

As is often the case in fledgling areas, the work suffers from various methodological issues that make it problematic to draw firm conclusions.

In line with the magic-based interventions being reported, it is hoped that future researchers are able to make these problems disappear and, in doing so, discover how magic can help to produce some genuinely remarkable phenomena. We would also like to thank our referees for their insightful and helpful comments and suggestions. Funding Statement The authors received no funding for this work.

THE PROPOSED CIPHER The proposed cipher involves that the two parties or more can use the proposed model to encrypt and decrypt the clear text using one of the famous symmetric algorithms cipher and then encrypts and sends the cipher key in secure form by asymmetric cipher using the proposed model that includes the combined of Diffie-Hellman algorithm with magic cube technique as well as singing and verifying the intended message by the same process by depends upon the Secure Hash Algorithm SHA bits.

The example below simulate the proposed cipher with step by step implementation. Figure 7. The string below represents a simple simulation for the designed program for the handshaking session. The designed program treats with several hundreds of prime numbers that are generated and selected randomly to constitute the agreement key for the two parties module for a specific primitive element. The string below represents the generated key module the prime number of p. Thus, the dimension of cube constructing will be equal to Cube or square or print either c or s character… c Enter the dimension… Enter the dimension is generated The core idea for the proposed model concentrates on the design, a fast and strong method that is based on the magic cube mathematical problem, in order to guarantee the complete security and invulnerability against the malicious attacks.

This scheme allows fast encryption and decryption process in addition to the fast signature generation and verification, as well as it enlarges the search space against the brute force attack and consequently increases the complexity. There are several negatives and limitations that are considered one of the main problems and the limited side in the public-key cryptography which involves how to evidence that the asymmetric key is authoritative and it has not altered and changed by another key or by an intruder or even an unknown intercepted person.

Perhaps the most vulnerable attack on the public key cipher is the man-in- the-middle attack, in which a third malicious party impersonates the personality of the authorized person by the intercepting and modifying the public key.

Level One: The Full Course

An active adversary in the middle communication manipulates and modifies the messages and the implication deceives the two communicated parties [17]. In order to agree on a key which is exclusively shared between Alice and Bob, these principals must make sure that the messages they receive in a protocol run are indeed from the intended principals.

A trusted third party may be used to represent as a certificate authority that is verifying from the identity of persons using the authentication system.

The public key in general terms or asymmetric cryptosystem compared with the symmetric cryptosystem take much more time in the established key for encryption and decryption processes since it uses sophisticated mathematical problems in its construction. The random choices for some numbers to construct the magic cube whence starting value, difference value and the fixed multiplied value to generate the private key give a more resistant against the attacks.

Unacceptable selections for these random numbers represent a basic restriction and may open the door in front of the passive and active attacks.

So, one should be careful to ensure that the identity of the parties takes place by using a trusted third party or mediated party. Eventually, the main purpose for the extended magic square to magic cube is to treat with six parties or terminals on network instead of one using the same field and the same module number according to the DH algorithm in order to exchange the secret key.

Hence, each face from the cube can be represented as an independent terminal. Thus, the main purpose for the generalized magic cube is to create a simple method based on the folding concept that constructed the magic cube easily. An efficient, secure and fast algorithm employed to applies secure digital communication which is based on the hardness of some problems in number theory.

With respect to efficiency, as it well known that the most of the public-key cipher suffers from the difficulty of the key generation and the parameters selection for the session establishment and the key agreement. The adoption of the magic cube mathematical problem could significantly change the nature of public key cryptography and the manner through which will be treated, in addition to the behavior and the style of attacks.

We have introduced a simple comparison among three different public key ciphers in the below as explained in Figure 8. Figure 9. In this test there is no need to take different messages lengths, because the execution time will be based on the message digest of the original message.

Figure 8. Since the search space and the complexity increased dramatically with the increasing dimension. It gives a remarkable significant speed and reduced the costs as well as improves the efficiency and security margin. The basic idea is focused on the clue of creating a confidential communication channel with a secret sharing between the communicating parties in the presence of malicious adversaries.

It gives a remarkable significant speed and reduces costs as well as improvement in the efficiency and security margin. The proposed of the folded cube method is considered as the simplest and nearly the fastest method to construct the magic cube, since it is based on the folded procedures and the traditional magic square methods that can be constructed with any order easily.

There is no existence for any real difficulty in the construction of any cube with this technique, because it based on the folded process for the magic square methods, and does not need a strong mathematical comprehension or experience in the geometrical aspects.

CO, 24 Sep Rajavel and S. Magic Squares and Cubes. Chicago: Second Edition. Revised and Enlarged Open Court Publishing, V, pp Deckbuilding is ok, but I'm a decent deckbuilder as is so I wasn't really learning anything new. I ended up not finishing that book because I got bored with it but I can see where it can help someone. As if site traffic and ads aren't enough Thanks for the review - what sorts of advice are found in the deckbuilding book?

I build a lot of my own decks as well - nothing in there that could take a seasoned deckbuilder to "pro level"? If anyone could post a table of contents for each book that would help give me an idea of the topics being covered - it would be most kind!

Wizard Mentor. If you want to get better at magic on an analytical basis, you should do your own research and come up with your own rules. Additionally, most of the books I came across such as these are eloquent empty words. It's like those pickup artist books: If Chapin won every single time, maybe I'd download his book. But as it stands, magic is a relatively new and young game.

Many of the theories exist out there in other games like poker or blackjack or 8s. A great understanding of probabilities, trade, statistics and overall an experience of the current metas whatever format you play is what will net you the wits needed to build better decks and play better.

If you want to get better at magic, learn the basics behind the simpler games using a standard 52 card deck. Poker is amazing at that since you take probabilities to the extreme. Afterwards, read all the rules in magic and understand how the game actually works. Believe it or not, you will always have an advantage over someone that doesn't know what the rules are since it limits their choices. Learn how choices and statistics work together.

If I play this but draw that, I will be behind. If I do this, he has that and I draw this, I can do that.The proposed method works for all types of magic cube and with any order and it depends basically on the magic square techniques.

Historical Overview Magic-based interventions have been developed within both health and educational contexts. Chandrasekar have introduced a new approach for secure data transmission through the cloud environment and sharing networks as well as during the Secure Socket Layer SSL by the RSA combined with magic square, to provide additional security layer to the cryptosystem.

George, J. Spencer conducted a study examining the psychological impact of the Hocus Focus programme in three schools, involving a total of 9 teachers and 76 students aged between 12 and An efficient, secure and fast algorithm employed to applies secure digital communication which is based on the hardness of some problems in number theory.
