This is true. Sometimes work is therapeutic in a way. Building business relationships and respect. There is a truth in having balance and it seems hard at times. Priorities of trying to make everyone happy because you care about everyone, truth is you care about yourself too in this time and dedication and you enjoy it as well. It is self rewarding and good. I think it is just as important to have balance within yourself as your own person and this I believe should also be a priority.I love Harvard's way of thinking!! Very smart and I'm passing this on as I scoop it right up.
"How do we strike a balance, particularly when work itself can be so gratifying? (My consultant friend says his intense schedule is the result of his desire to “make a difference in people’s lives, and I am good at it. That is very hard to give up and it keeps a lot of people happy.”) True success means recognizing our real, individual priorities and, as best we can, living them out today instead of pinning our hopes on some mythical future state of “I’ll be happy when…”
This part is cited from the scoop article on Harvard's "just can't stop working." Because I love this part, words to remember.
I can see that there could be an accuracy problem with cell phones calling in emergency's and location accuracy. If I am understanding this news article correctly, Homeland Security is wanting to beef up the systems to move forward their capabilities to be able to trace the whereabouts of cell phone calling 911, just like land lines and pay phones they can locate the whereabouts of the calls. I think that most people today use cell phones instead of landlines. I don't have a land line anymore and haven't for about 7-8 years. I use my cell phone for everything. I don't see anything wrong with this because when someone calls 911 for help and they get cut off I think its good they can locate the caller and call back, it saves people's lives this way. Not sure if I misunderstood. Sorry if I did.
I feel trying to get criminal allegations to stick with there being compliance in the International Courts seems almost impossible sometimes in cases that I have read and this case is an another example of the corruption and non compliance that doesn't allow people to be heard and to have Justice. For the evidence to be with held because it has truth that would most likely prosecute and convict the accused is wrong. This article is another great example of corruption within the courts and International governments. Very sad and what can be done about this. Nigeria is also corrupt. I would be angry if I was involved with this case.
Black parents say they've long known they have to have a different conversation than their white counterparts when it comes to talking about police with their children. As the nation struggles with recent deaths of black males at the hands of white police officers, that conversation is more...
I can't believe that there is still so much racial violence from the police towards black people and stereotyping and especially how they dress of how they will be perceived by the police if they are wearing certain clothing. Colored people have to be extra careful it seems with everything and I believe that the police officers who abuse their powers in being a police officer in all areas but especially in racial prejudiced should have huge life changing consequences and be made an example for what they have done. sounds harsh but I feel this way. Personally when I am pulled over I always show respect but I have never showed my hands.. yet.. and I have never had a problem, I'd like to keep it this way too. I know the officer is evaluating everything and I also know they are trained to see things to observe suspicious behaviors which I personally think is good.
by Albert Einstein I am writing as one who has lived among you in America only a little more than ten years. And I am writing seriously and warningly. Many readers may ask: "What right has he to speak about things which concern us alone, and which no newcomer should touch?"
This is really profound. We seem to forget that the "whites" took the "Negros" from their home for their own selfish gain, just as the whites were also stripped of their own liberty in being slaves for the Greeks. I think we forget where we come from and the truth. America is a home to be appreciated with liberty being something that we can be proud of and embrace. The facts that there are racial prejudice I do believe too like Einstein stated that it is a learned tradition and this is something that we need to have the courage to stand against. For the people that had the honor to be in Einstein's company were very lucky. I would have loved to be a sponge to learn from him. Wow! This is an amazing scoop.
I know we don't see this rare situation happening everyday... The people of Thailand taking a stand against the corruption and the abuse of power even their law enforcement stood with them... This is doing what is right! There is comment in the article that if other countries followed suit it would be awesome to see political changes.
This makes sense to me because you can tell a lot about a person by the way they carry themselves in their body language. (most times anyways) In a broad sense you can read if someone seems sneaky (maybe you can spot the attacker's body language by the way they carry their head while walking etc.) or dishonest, insecure and I also believe eye contact has a lot to do with a person and seeing if they are up to no good in a sense, I'd rather be the spotter than the one being spotted. In relation to this article, I spoke to someone awhile ago and they worked with abused children and woman and had to meet with the accused. In her years of training in this field she did speak about this topic that's discussed in this article that I found interesting. She said that vulnerable, insecure young girls are often an easy target, for example, if they are homeless on the streets and no family and older people. She said that people who hold themselves in confidence seems to be a deterrence to the attacker because the attacker sees your strong. They prey on what they see as weak.
TO OUTSIDERS, the magnitude of Indians' love for cricket is as incomprehensible as its feverish intensity. On February 4th India awarded the Bharat Ratna, its highest civilian honour, to Sachin Tendulkar, a recently retired batsman. Millions in India, a country of 1.3 billion people and only one nationally-popular game, celebrated wildly. When India's national side plays a big game, an estimated 400m watch on television. Yet cricket's take-off in India is a highly improbable development. The game is demanding to play properly, requiring space, a good turf pitch and expensive equipment—which only a relative handful of Indian cricketers have access to. Most will never strap on pads or bowl with a leather ball. So why do they so love the game?

Love this article and is so true. I can relate to this article in a big way, I know more people than not in my life that run from confrontation and want to just keep the peace, "not rock the boat." I have always disagreed with this and thought it was weird that people do this and this has been at a price at times for myself. I do believe it is in the delivery for sure and you get more done from that. If we don't offer diversity and just always agree, how do you discover your own unique individuality? This part of this is important and its not about being right or wrong, its about bringing individual perspective and this is how innovation is born. I wholeheartedly believe that you are more healthy when you are communicating in a healthy way and you find things are much better for everyone, the entire team. Its important to feel and be approachable. Important....
This is awesome! I disagree, I think more is going to be done with the Republicans holding the seats economically and morally I believe that there will be positive changes and some things are going to turn around for the positive. That's awesome that there is going to be reform on long prison sentences even if money has to be spent on rehabilitation for the people released, even then in the long run financially I think things will be better as well as emotionally and in every way.
In its ideal form, education should be socially progressive. We teach the next generation of scientists, engineers and medical researchers who will improve our quality of life: they will learn more about…
WOW! This is a great and on point article. I think we have come along way since of ancestors in morals, like racism is wrong, for example. This is a very refreshing article. I do believe that teachers do need to be careful in their practice in what they are saying to our children and to keep their personal point of views out of their practice. Like mentioned in the article on religious beliefs and abortion. I know that in some schools some teachers are influencing children on "what to think and that this is the right way instead of how to think," like the title of this article says. I do see a huge difference in these perspectives. Another example I want to state is that I do not believe a teachers practice should be telling my kids that being gay is okay. This is not their responsibility to tell my children these sort of things. I don't believe there should be opinions or judgments spoken about these things or about anything that doesn't pertain to their education and vise versa. I also believe if a teacher is discussing abortion with my child that this is wrong and inappropriate. If you were to ask my kids about God they would tell you that they love God and I think this is a good thing. There are boundaries I believe to what is appropriate. I believe our educators need to focus on what is important in education.
With allegations of corruption in government, politics, business and banking emerging throughout the year, corruption was one of the most pervasive issues in Mexico in 2014. It came as no surprise, therefore, that the country scored worse than previously in the year-end corruption perceptions report by Transparency International released December 3rd.
With a score of 35 on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean), Mexico ranked 103 among 175 countries in the group’s Corruption Perceptions Index, which ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. The best-ranked country is Denmark and the worst is Somalia. Among the 31 countries of the Americas addressed in the survey, ten ranked lower than Mexico: Argentina, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Haiti and Venezuela. Canada ranked highest and Venezuela lowest. Mexico is also ranked the most corrupt among the OECD countries.
That is so scary. I'm speechless and that's saying something because that never happens. I wonder if the Mexican government is corrupt because of the extreme poverty there? I have never had a desire to go to Mexico even though its beautiful because I have heard so many stories about the dangers of being there, for example, at 10 o'clock stay inside. I feel very sad for the students that were killed there and for their families. Why do people do things like this, its horrible! A little random but on topic of Mexico/corruption and this even involves the U.S. in "The Fast and the Furious dilemma." This is an article from the
ATF’s Fast and Furious scandalA federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

My questions are how and why did this happen? Mexico and the U.S. corruption.
What speaks to me in this is if you are not honest with yourself then your not facing the true issues at hand within the department functions. For example, racism, the bigger the blacker and that white cops have fear, that's crazy. The difference between the soldier and cop is huge. I also see this as the soldier is the militant approach where the police officer is the community policing approach. I am in wholehearted agreement of what the chief stated, "that if there is a threat he is going to address it and that if the cops only concern is to make sure they make it home at the end of the day then they shouldn't be a cop. The cop made the decision to become an officer knowing the risks at hand and they were not drafted into this position." Also, I agree people have no idea what police officers encounter in their positions and the life threatening dangers they encounter that the truth is in a split second their life can taken. I know it is important to have diffusion of conflict strategies to avoid violence but sometimes there isn't that choice, I also agree wholeheartedly with this. Which brings me to a very good point from the chief that "training alone isn't sufficient." "There needs to be a professional structural change within the departments." This is a great scoop.
This is an interesting article and I don't know if we notice how important it is to challenge ourselves or if we even notice. We can get bored and complacent and I believe we should be aware to stay on our toes to make sure this doesn't happen but when or if this happens this article makes me think of how important it is to grow.
I wonder what happened to the fugitive who escaped? That's crazy and what are the odds of that happening only a few miles away from where he broke out? I found it interesting that the man who found the skull with his dog was able to get such a good description of the mans hairline, type of haircut, and the mans ear. Forensics to me is fascinating.
This article actually brought tears to my eyes. We never know what someone is going through and sometimes we are quick to judge because we don't understand. I also think it's neat to hear a story about how a son who lost his innocence in losing his mother to suicide but had it replaced with perspective and understanding. He also had compassion after he saw her struggles more clear, mental illness is sad. I don't see suicide as weak I see it as sad and I feel life is crazy sometimes. Sometimes its better and okay to not understand.
This article makes me think of a dog pooping in my yard story while the owner was oblivious or just didn't care to notice! Now maybe its not appropriate to share something funny because this guy tried to kill this woman, holy cow, over poop! People really have some scary issues... Do we need to watch what we say or we might get stabbed? When I lived in WA I pulled into my driveway at 8am and it was a warm morning and the sun was shining bright when this guy had his dog leash extended as far as it could extend while he was enjoying his cup of coffee and his dog was pooping in my grass! I thought are you kidding me, lets be funny about this... I said good morning hows it going? I was thinking about walking up the street with my dog in a few minutes with my morning cup of coffee in one hand and I am going to look at your house while my dog poops in your grass... He said, well what kind of dog do you have? I said a Saint Bernard... His face was so funny so I just laughed... I was amused, who does that? LOL But this article is not a laughing matter, there is some scary people out there.
I scooped this up once but I don't know where my comments went, so sorry for the repeat. This is a heart breaking story, soooo sad. I didn't know that Oregon State allowed physician assisted suicide, that is so crazy! Like the writer of the article said, did she leave before she should have because she chose to take her own life and she missed out on precious time with the people she loved? I believe that suicide shouldn't be given as a choice to people no matter what, this shouldn't be a choice, to me its saying that suicide is okay and this way of thinking is also assisting people to give up and not have faith. I believe that God can make you better and suicide didn't allow him to show this.
Ooooh child I wonder how people find out this information anyways? This is why I really don't like social medias sometimes because there are those people who snoop around in people's business, Facebook stalking and all that jazz. Social medias to me are enter at your own risk and your info is on there forever so I know that Officers have to be careful because people would love to retaliate on cops for different reasons. I would never identify myself ever on social networks ever if I was in that position. My boyfriends son is a Police Officer ion NH, Massachusetts and he goes to work in his normal clothes and leaves in his normal clothes so he isn't identified in his Police uniform.
Okay I just scooped this up but not sure where it went so here I go again, sorry if this is a repeat. I think that "Pro. 47" is great for the budget for CA and to trim down on the overpopulated jails as well as put your money where it counts towards rehabilitation. I don't know if I think that its a good thing to drop drug offenses down to a misdemeanor and this could bring different changes, like Law Enforcement stated, "it may be hard to prosecute date rape drugs as well as enforcing gun convictions." I agree. I do believe that some offenses are better to not have a long jail sentence and approaching offenses with a rehabilitation approach I see as a great approach that also offers benefits to long term changes.
