How one German millennial chose to live on trains rather than pay rent

How one German millennial chose to live on trains rather than pay rent | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"When others get off the train to finally go home, Leonie Müller stays behind. That's because she already is home: The train is her apartment, and she says she likes it that way. She bought a subscription that allows her to board every train in the country free. Now, Müller washes her hair in the train bathroom and writes her college papers while traveling at a speed of up to 190 mph. She says that she enjoys the liberty she has experienced since she gave up her apartment."

How Maps Are Saving the World

How Maps Are Saving the World | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Maps. They’ve been around longer than photographs. They’ve defined empires,guided explorers, told stories, and captured the imagination of many a hopeful traveler for years. While most appreciate the beauty and power of a good map, few recognize the dynamic and vital applications they have today.

What It Really Means When Someone's 'Dead to You'

What It Really Means When Someone's 'Dead to You' | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Are there people in your world that you’re cut off from? Do you have folks in your social circles who have vowed not to speak to someone else again—ever? From an evolutionary perspective, remember, perfection evades each and every one of us. Maybe it’s time to pick up that phone and say. "I know that 20 years ago we concluded that we’d never talk to each other again, but how about we bury those hatchets? We’re not getting any younger.” At the end of the day, having fewer people out there whom you have “cut off”—for whatever reasons—can only add to a more positive life.
