Rhedyn Duncan's curator insight, March 25, 3:26 AM

Emily Duffy is a fifteen year old girl who has already commenced her quest to save lives with her inventions - which I find truly revolutionary. Emily has invented a baby nappy which indicates the state of the baby’s health to the parents. This is done by a colour changing patch inserted within the nappy. Emily’s design attracted significant success, and has gained wide spread popularity. However, Emily did not stop there. Her most recent invention were fire resistant sleeping bags for the homeless. The organisation responsible for producing the sleeping bags has even chosen to hire the homeless off the streets, and provide them with work and pay to help manufacture these sleeping bags. 

 

I feel completely inspired by the fact that a girl as young as fifteen can come up with such amazing innovations to try and help people, and potentially save lives. In my future career I will strive to also to apply innovative ideas to improve current designs in the health and safety field.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 24, 5:55 PM

Maria Papova of Brain Pickings has written an amazing synopsis of Harvard psychologist Jerome Bruner's work Actual Minds, Possible Worlds (1986) and his thoughts on what makes storytelling work.


I love that she quotes Bruner's work on storytelling. Papova also sets the context for us by sharing Bruner's thoughts on the difference between logic-scientific thought and narrative. It provides a clear road map for the two styles of cognitive thinking and the value of both.


What I like even more is how Papova brings in other scholar's works that add to Bruner's writings. Links are included so you can go exploring and further enrich your knowledge about storytelling and the human mind.


And here is what I like the best: she NEVER mentions what Bruner is most quoted for: that people remember stories 22 times more than facts alone. Why do I like this omission? Because it was a mere mention in Bruner's work and has never been scientifically proven. See my colleague Shawn Callahan's blog post on this http://www.anecdote.com/2015/01/link-between-memory-and-stories/ 


You will definitely like this post and the accompanying articles to check out. It's meaty and rich. Have fun!
