Why Do We Cry?

Click to Subscribe! http://bit.ly/10kWnZ7 TWEET IT - http://clicktotweet.com/8X1ed Why does your face leak when you're sad or emotional?
Alessandro Rea's insight:

Tears are obviously our body's mechanism to keep our eyeballs well lubricated, but why do humans start bawling when they're sad, in pain, or overjoyed? What purpose could crying possibly serve?


As ASAP Science illustrates, the leading theory is that crying is an obvious expression of sincere sadness or distress, and that we're sending out a sort of biological bat signal that we're in need of comforting. And the fact that tears blur our vision which handicaps our ability to react shows others we're being sincere.


Another more interesting theory, however, is that the type of tears that flow when crying contain a high concentration of a chemical that's linked to stress. And since crying rids the body of that chemical, it could actually help us chill out when stressed.

Naked Mind: the film - "A present mind is a happy mind."

From the Himalayas to US Neuroscience labs, two filmmakers explore the effects of meditation and its potential for collective evolution

 

"Scientific discoveries are proving that meditation can be beneficial to individual and collective happiness, but what does this mean outside an Eastern Buddhist culture? In contemporary American life, the term "mindfulness" has become a buzzword across a huge range of disciplines, from psychology and medicine to education, social action, and prison reform. This film asks: What does mindfulness mean, how does it relate to human happiness, and what does it mean to practice mindfulness in today's society? "

Mindfulness-Meditation is one key to getting a handle on who we are, who we are inside ourselves. Once we start exploring just who we are, many of us are surprised by what we find.


Throughout recorded history people have been using meditation as a tool to dig deep into our consciousness, dig deep into our souls. We wonder just who is this person I call self?


Well now here in the 21st century more and more people are wondering just what are people finding on their journey deep within their minds and they are writing books and making films about what they have found.


Here is a film project that is worthy of your support and I hope you will take a moment to watch and read their message on Kickstarter. The Project and film is called Naked Mind...

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 4, 2013 1:26 PM

Integrating technology in your teaching requires beforehand planning and structuring. It also predisposes the existence of a set of learning goals you  want to achieve through the integration of this technology in the class. So, the process is highly structured and pre-arranged and nothing is left for " happy accidents ".

Amanda Rogers's comment, May 4, 2013 6:11 PM
This is a great tool to refer to for integrating technology into lessons whilst encorporating learning goals and allowing for HOT. It is well structured and prevents lesving steps out.
Kia Sowden's comment, May 11, 2013 1:01 AM
I think many teachers struggle to truly integrate technology into their classrooms. I believe their is the common misconception that if you are 'using' technology you are integrating it into your teaching and learning. However there is a difference between the two.

These Are The Wealthiest Subway Stops In Manhattan

These Are The Wealthiest Subway Stops In Manhattan | BeBetter | Scoop.it
An awesome interactive infographic.
Alessandro Rea's insight:

The New Yorker has an awesome interactive infographic showing the median income of New York's 21 subway lines based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau.


The wealthiest subway stops are all in one census tract downtown: Park Place on the 123 line, Chambers Street on the 123 and ACE, and the World Trade Center on the E line. These three stops all have median incomes of $205,192.

The next stops with the highest median incomes include 5th Avenue-59th Street on the NQR ($171,000), Williamsburg's York Street on the F line ($167,737), and Canal Street on the ACE line ($164,656).

Some of the poorest subway stops include 125th on the 456 ($15,625) and Marcy Avenue on the M, J, and Z lines ($16,139).

The infographic does an excellent job of demonstrating how dramatically income changes in New York City between neighborhoods.

Check out the interactive infographic at the New Yorker >

"LETTING GO" AND MINDFULNESS ARE KEY FACTORS NOWADAYS - Accomplish More by Doing Less

"LETTING GO" AND MINDFULNESS ARE KEY FACTORS NOWADAYS - Accomplish More by Doing Less | BeBetter | Scoop.it

The key in life is not to do more or work harder; the key is actually to find ways to do less and think more, to be less busy and more productive. 

Here some important principles:

1.) Reevaluate how you spend your time and stop doing the time-wasters.
We’ve all heard about the Pareto Principle, the 80/20 rule that 20 percent of your activity produces 80 percent of your income.

2.) Create and protect the boundaries of our digital world 
- Put a junk filter on your life
- Just say NO. 
- You get in life what you tolerate.

3.) Study more - Life is not about learning and knowledge, but about studying and transferring what suits to our own life. 

4.) Stay focused and show commitment to consistency.

5.) Life is not about time management, but about energy management.

6.) Learn to delegate effectively!

7.) Value the time you are "off"!

WE ARE THE VICTIMS OF OUR OWN ATTITUDES – Can an attitude be changed? | Wisdom for Future Leaders

WE ARE THE VICTIMS OF OUR OWN ATTITUDES – Can an attitude be changed? | Wisdom for Future Leaders | BeBetter | Scoop.it

We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes.
It is a matter of personal choice.
 
People often see others as rivals.
But why?
Are they really rivals for us or do we only want to see them as rivals for feeling better, for holding the virtual hand above them?
Is this for calming our own doubts about us?
Are we unsure about ourselves?
Is it really so hard to reach the other person the hand?
 
John C. Maxwell asks in his book “Attitude 101″:
 
What is success?

The wealth of Bill Gates,
the physique of Arnold Schwarzenegger,
(or Tyra Banks),
the intelligence of Albert Einstein,
the athletic ability of Michael Jordan,
the business prowess of Donald Trump,
the social grace and poise of Jackie Kennedy,
the imagination of Walt Disney, and
the heart of Mother Teresa.
 
Some points may sound absurd, but it’s closer to the truth than we would like to admit.
I think the last point is the most essential.
Good leadership consists of a sum of many good character traits.
They make the whole picture of the leader.
Success is not about having much money, not about feeling successful and happy.
And it is not about having a special power over people or having reached a special goal.
 
Success is not a destination – success is a journey.
 
Success is …
Knowing your purpose in life,
Growing to reach your maximum potential, and
Sowing seeds that benefit others.
 
or
 
WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET
BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE.
 
REACH OUT TO OTHERS  …
SHOW YOUR HEART …
 
or in other words:

LEADERS HAVE TO GIVE UP TO GO UP!
