Don’t Cry Over Twitter Breaking Up With Linked-In: Problem Solved

Don’t Cry Over Twitter Breaking Up With Linked-In: Problem Solved | All Together Now | Scoop.it

As every professional who feeds their LinkedIn directly from their Twitter account received the email stating that “tweets will no longer be shared on LinkedIn,” frustration and confusion began to take over. How could Twitter possibly do this?

This isn’t the first time that this problem has been encountered; people with presences on many unlinked social networks have been trying for quite some time to figure out how to save time and share interesting content in just one click.

But there is a solution . . .

Instead of trying to do everything all at once, the start-up CEO needs to focus on what really matters. Like in running, all that matters is the very next step. And the size of your next step depends proportionally on the size of your company.

Gut Bacteria Regulate Happiness

Gut Bacteria Regulate Happiness | All Together Now | Scoop.it
APC scientists have shown that brain levels of serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’ are regulated by the amount of bacteria in the gut during early life.

 

This research has multiple health implications as it shows that manipulations of the microbiota (e.g. by antibiotics, diet, or infection) can have profound knock-on effects on brain function. . . .

[Interesting . . . especially considering that gut regulation and other emotion-related processes are affected by early-life bonding (attachment . . . relationships). You can't separate bodily health from mental health in the end.]

The Attached Family » Recipe for Raising Healthy Eaters | All Together Now | Scoop.it

I like the balanced approach in this. How many of us overeat as adults because we were taught we "had" to clean our plates? Better to stay in touch with your body's hunger signals, but this can only be achieved when healthy options are available. Chemical "foods" don't interact with the body's signals as effectively.

Systems thinking comes of age as KPMG says environmental, social and economic problems cannot be solved separately...

 

KPMG correctly points out that over the next 20 years businesses will be exposed to hundreds of environmental and social changes that will bring both risks and opportunities.

 

In the same way that we need systems thinking to understand the hole we are digging for ourselves, we also need a holistic approach to help us climb back out. That means that no single player has all the answers and collaboration is needed from across governments, businesses and civil society.

The science of attachment parenting

The science of attachment parenting | All Together Now | Scoop.it
What scientific studies reveal about attachment parenting.

 

[Following the curation rules, identifying my own comments-GS: I think what hurts this "cause" is that some in the "movement" are separating it as a "movement," or "cause" or something outside the norm. I get that identifying it as a "movement" may bring attention, but it also antagonizes others. "Attachment parenting" is a name that got "attached" to a common sense, evidence-based understanding. It's not meant to be as regimented as some make it, so please don't be put off by it. Children need the connections that are encouraged by these folks. Seriously. Generations of children that were sent off to boarding school so their parents could freely live their own lives should have taught us that much! How much resilience did their kids grow up with?) Okay. Off my soapbox.]

Empathy vs Sympathy - Therapy Case Notes

Empathy vs Sympathy - Therapy Case Notes | All Together Now | Scoop.it

"Truly empathic statements don't necessarily try to make the other person's pain go away or feel better.

 

Seems like when you get to that point, you want to give up and hand yourself over to the snakes, because you feel that there’s no goodness left anywhere in the world, inside or out.

 

These strike me as statements of stark truth that grow from true empathy, not sympathy; by entering into my clients’ emotions and articulating exactly what they feel, I empathize with their pain but don’t try to make it better by offering consolation or easy optimism. Because I’m not afraid to look at something so painful and then to articulate it, I also communicate to my clients that, as painful as their experience may be, as unbearable as it seems, it actually can be tolerated."

The Neuroscience of Effort | All Together Now | Scoop.it

Given the importance of this mental tug of war, I’ve always been deeply curious about how it unfolds inside my head. A fascinating new paper in the Journal of Neuroscience led by Michael Treadway at Vanderbilt University begins to unpack the mystery. It’s a first draft of what happens in the brain as we choose between effort and indulgence, work and distraction.
