Empathy and Action—Don’t Give Up!

Empathy and Action—Don’t Give Up! | arts | Scoop.it

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?
—“Walden,” Henry David Thoreau

 

A thought for your new year: humans aren’t the only creatures who look out for “auld acquaintances” in this tough and sometimes indifferent world. I’m talking about empathy. A recent news story attracted a lot of attention by showing how a lab rat would help another rat without the promise of a reward. It even bypassed a treat to free its cage mate from an uncomfortable container, and shared its stash of chocolate chips (confess: would you?). Empathy isn’t exclusive to Homo sapiens, said the scientists who ran this experiment, “it is part of our biological inheritance.”...
 

Whether we’re peace-making ravens or distressed mice or compassionate humans, we can all risk opposition—or giving up a treat—to bring about change. Happy new year.

Hand Jive - Top 7 Common US Hand Gestures May Lead to Trouble Abroad @The_Infographic @PimsleurTweets

Hand Jive - Top 7 Common US Hand Gestures May Lead to Trouble Abroad @The_Infographic  @PimsleurTweets | arts | Scoop.it
After reading this infographic, the stadium full of University of Texas Longhorn fans holding up their hands in a symbol of team spirit has a whole new meaning.

Hand gestures, like culturally specific slang, do not always translate well across countries.

American travelers have enough to worry about without inadvertently insulting someone.

The peace sign moonlights as an often censored expletive when thrown up in Australia or New Zealand, and gesturing to “come here” with the pointer finger is punishable with jail time in the Philippines.
