How Americans Are Redefining Success -- And Prioritizing Happiness

How Americans Are Redefining Success -- And Prioritizing Happiness | Dillon Constitution | Scoop.it
Despite recent research suggesting that money can in fact buy happiness, more Americans are redefining success and happiness in a way that doesn't involve wealth.
dillon von berge's insight:

This article is about how in a recent survey it was found that more Americans areprioritizing their  lives around being healthy and having fun and not so much on just having as much money as possible. I'm glad some people are realizing that there's more to life than going to work and making money.

Money can't buy happiness. It is good that people are not stressing over just making money as much though, less stress leads to happier living! Not everyone is a millionaire but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't enjoy their lives.
Matthew Nava's comment, May 19, 2013 8:34 PM
It's nice to see that not everyone is obsessed with material objects, and are now more focused on finding true happiness in their life.

Cloning technique produces human stem cells for the first time

Cloning technique produces human stem cells for the first time | Dillon Constitution | Scoop.it
Researchers say they have finally managed to use cloning technology to make human embryos and grow stem cells from them in the hopes of making perfectly matched grow-your-own tissue transplants.

This is a huge advancement cause scientists have been trying to master this for years. With this technology we can grow make tissue and even maybe whole ligaments.

Matthew Nava's curator insight, May 15, 2013 7:35 PM

Scientist have finally devoloped a way to use cloning technology to grow human embryos and ultimately grow stem cells. These will hopefully be used as a "grow-your-own tissue" type of treatment. This new technology could save a lot of people from serious injury or even death, but there is always controversy surrounding stem cell research.

Via Graham Jervis
dillon von berge's insight:

This article is about how the US government has basically buried us in debt. They keep increasing our debt cap so that we can keep taking on more debt, but what happens when we cant take on any more debt. Eventually their gonna have to try to get rid of it but at this time that is pretty much impossible especially with all of our "smart","innovative" government officials who are "fixing" the debt.

Henry Hartzler's comment, April 28, 2013 4:55 PM
Seeing the debt clock just keep growing higher and higher is super depressing. By the looks of things, it will be a miracle if our country is ever out of debt. It does beg to question what happens if we just keep accumulating this massive amount of debt, such as who do we owe it to and how do we pay it off?

This article is about how the new D.A.R.E program will no longer have any lessons on the dangers of marijuana. The DARE officer states "It does not bring up the subject of marijuana at all". I think that this is a good step towards the future where more people will be educated correctly on the Dangers or lack there of, on the use of marijuana. I find this change in curriculum odd in the fact that for many years kids were taught about how "dangerous" this elicit drug was.

This article is about how people are trying to shut down Guantanamo prison because many inmates die before being brought to trial. They are also trying to show the government that their interrogation tactics are a bit too much.
Jacob Rabe's comment, April 18, 2013 9:28 AM
Insight: It is horrible that we are torturing people that likely have nothing to do with attacks of terror nowadays. The captives they torture were from the aftermath of 9/11 and we are still holding these people captive. It is a waste of space in our prisons and a waste of government funding. It is also likely that these people were tortured with the same techniques used in Iraq, that are illegal according to signed treaties.
Henry Hartzler's comment, April 18, 2013 9:36 AM
I agree, there is no justification for us to be torturing terror suspects. If we are torturing these inmates and holding them indefinitely, how does that separate us from those who orchestrated the 9/11 attacks? Besides being inhumane, it is also illegal according to the treaties as Rabe stated above.

This article is about how they are debating whether to keep the minimum wage or to raise or lower it. I think that they should raise it or keep it because I don't believe lowering the minimum wage will create jobs, but I think that raising it will help boost the economy
Matthew Nava's comment, April 14, 2013 8:38 PM
I think they should just keep the minimum wage where it is at. Lowering it will cause big problems, and a lot of people will get ticked off.
Henry Hartzler's comment, April 18, 2013 9:30 AM
I agree that we should not lower minimum wage any further. Enough businesses already employ people at the lowest possible rate, and I have worked with college students and people supporting families already struggling to pay off debt and bills. Lowering minimum wage would not keep money circulating through the economy.

North Korea says jailed American is now in 'special prison'

North Korea said Wednesday that the U.S. citizen it sentenced last month to 15 years of hard labor has begun his stay at a "special prison."

This does not sound good if I were sentenced to 15 years hard labor and was moved to a special prison I think I would be a little scared of what exactly this guy is going to be doing as hard labor in this special prison.

North Korea sentenced Keneth Bae, a U.S. citizen, to 15 years of hard labor. He was arrested on the accusation that he was trying to bring down the regime of Kim Jong Un, but he was just working as a tour operator. They have now moved him into a "special prison" which North Korea won't give any details on.

NASA Chief Urges Congress to Fund Private Astronaut Taxis

NASA Chief Urges Congress to Fund Private Astronaut Taxis | Dillon Constitution | Scoop.it

American astronauts could be forced to fly on Russian spacecraft beyond 2017 if Congress continues to cut funding for private crewed vehicles, NASA chief Charles Bolden says.

 

On Tuesday (April 30), NASA announced that it will pay $70.7 million each for six more seats aboard Russian Soyuz space capsules. The $424 million deal keeps Americans launching to the International Space Station aboard the Soyuz through 2016, with return and rescue services extending until June 2017.

 

Funding cuts to NASA's Commercial Crew Program have delayed the development of private American space taxis, making this latest deal with the Russians necessary, Bolden said. And future cuts could bring about the purchase of even more Soyuz seats, he added.

dillon von berge's insight:

I think that this is a horrible idea for congress. If they cut funding our US astranauts will be going into space on russian spacecraft which just looks bad for the US. I dont get why the government doesnt want to explore space anymore because we literally know almost nothing about the universe. I think our country needs some serious readjustment because when learning about the universe you live in isn't important anymore but passing gun laws is. We need to look at our priorities as a counrty on how we are going to advance in to the next age.

Henry Hartzler's comment, May 10, 2013 10:20 AM
For a country that was so set on winning the space race to the moon, it seems impossible that we keep hearing about all these cuts to NASA. I agree, the universe has so much out there that is still unexplored, and we should continue funding that exploration!

insight: the man is accused of having sexual relations with a miniature donkey. The defendents lawyers are trying to say that the one year in jail is cruel and unusual punishment for the crime. The man admitted to being "aroused" by animals but said he did no do anything with the donkey because it quote was "blooming into maturity. I find this case really gross to begin with but i think that the one year in jail is a little much for the crime he is accused of.

This is a new commercial supporting stronger gun laws. It points out the fact that guns have changed since our gun laws were made. I think that there are a lot of people with guns right now that probably shouldn't , but I do not believe that it is going to be fixed with stricter gun laws. I think that its going to come to the point where only cops will be able to carry guns and we will have lost one of our rights and will not be able to defend ourselves.

This article is about how the US borders are becoming increasingly secure. The lawyer in the story is crossing the border and is stopped and held in an interrogation room for quite awhile even though he has done nothing wrong. I think that our government is becoming too controlling and our privacy is diminishing.
