California deer population declines as habitat disappears

California deer population declines as habitat disappears | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it
An estimated 445,000 deer live in California, or about equal to the city of Sacramento's human population. Which sounds like a lot, until you realize the deer are spread over the entire state: 99 million acres.

 

The decline has been almost too small to see on an annual basis. But since 1990, California has lost nearly half its deer population, according to the state Department of Fish and Game.

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it
It is simply impossible to become a great leader without being a great communicator. I hope you noticed the previous sentence didn't refer to being a great talker - big difference.

 

Effective communication is an essential component of professional success whether it is at the interpersonal, intergroup, intragroup, organizational, or external level. While developing an understanding of great communication skills is easier than one might think, being able to appropriately draw upon said skills when the chips are down is not always as easy as one might hope for.

The new and interesting thing about this is that they've come up with a video intervention. The rewiring of the brain through positive reframing is a long-practiced part of cognitive behavioral therapy, of course--and there is a large body of research in this area. For some other practical tips on rewiring the brain to avoid depression, a Google Scholar search on building resilience will turn up lots of great studies in this same vein. And some articles like this one: http://www.vision.org/visionmedia/depression-trauma-resilience/5816.aspx

Chemical exposures cause child IQ losses that rival major diseases. — Environmental Health News

Chemical exposures cause child IQ losses that rival major diseases. — Environmental Health News | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it

A recent analysis suggests that in the US children from 0 to 5 years, the IQ loss from exposure to lead, organophosphate, and methylmercury is about the same magnitude as from major childhood diseases such as preterm birth and ADHD.

 

It's a bit of a "science-y" read, but the implications are both clear and sobering.
