Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 25 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s...

The Burden of a Timely Thank You

The Burden of a Timely Thank You | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
For some people, being appreciative comes naturally. For others, it takes time and work. We’re all created different, so it goes that we may not all be appreciative of the same things, or at the same time. Regardless, there’s a power to using appreciation to positively impact your life and those around you. By being constantly aware of the good things in your life and the efforts of others, you can hugely impact the quality of your life. When you are constantly and genuinely appreciative, life changes.

NGA's map to put a world of geospatial intelligence in one place

NGA's map to put a world of geospatial intelligence in one place | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

The digital Map of the World will be the bedrock of the intelligence community’s information sharing. By 2018, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency envisions a seamless, dynamic Map of the World (MoW) that enables users across the Intelligence Community to visualize and access integrated intelligence content fixed to accurate and authoritative geographic features on Earth. Through the integration of GEOINT, navigation datasets, imagery and intelligence, this unified, online, geospatial, temporal and relational view of the world will provide a common frame of reference throughout the IC, bringing together multiple sources of information on any object of interest, delivered across multiple security domains and on multiple devices. NGA’s MoW is to serve as the foundation for multi-intelligence integration—the “geospatial bedrock” for all intelligence, information and knowledge—that can be customized by users as needed. It’s a big piece of the IC’s Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise plan for cloud-based information sharing across its 17 agencies.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 30, 7:06 PM

If you’re working on something important, then you’ll never feel ready. A side effect of doing challenging work is that you’re pulled by excitement and pushed by confusion at the same time.

You’re bound to feel uncertain, unprepared, and unqualified. But let me assure you of this: what you have right now is enough. You can plan, delay, and revise all you want, but trust me, what you have now is enough to start.

 

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to start a business, lose weight, write a book, or achieve any number of goals… who you are, what you have, and what you know right now is good enough to get going.

 

We all start in the same place: no money, no resources, no contacts, no experience. The difference is that some people — the winners — choose to start anyway.

Alain Theriault MBA's curator insight, August 31, 11:47 AM

Just Start. Shoot first, aim later

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 1, 1:43 PM

If you are only doing things for which you think you're "ready", then you are *not* growing ... and you are holding yourself back from your greater potential.

 

So get comfortable pushing (or throwing) yourself outside your comfort zone.  And as you grow and develop your people, remember that it's the leaders job (e.g. your job) to push (or throw) them outside of their comfort zone, too -- for their own good.

What’s in a Name? Ole Miss Wants to Stop Using Its Nickname.

"To most University of Mississippi students and alumni, calling the institution 'Ole Miss' is just natural. It’s what people say. University email addresses are @olemiss.edu, not @umiss.edu. But not everyone likes the name. The University’s announcement on Friday that, as part of a review of race relations at the university, it would encourage 'appropriate' use of the term won praise from some quarters but plenty of criticism. So did a series of other announcements by the university, which is hoping to change its association with symbols of the Confederacy."
