"As school districts work to prepare students for careers, education and life beyond high school, teaching and using technology in schools has become increasingly important. This doesn't mean simply purchasing and using new devices in school."
"Perhaps the biggest misunderstanding is that the Arctic and Antarctic are similar. One’s in the north and the other is in the south; but other than that, they’re the same, right? No, this couldn’t be more wrong. These polar opposites are literally polar opposites. For starters, the Arctic is a small, shallow ocean surrounded by land: Eurasia, Greenland, Canada and the United States. It’s only about 5 ½ million square miles, which is five times smaller than the Atlantic and 11 times smaller than the Pacific. Antarctica, on the other hand, is a continent surrounded by the entire Southern Ocean.
This may seem like no big deal, but it makes all the difference in the world. It takes a lot of energy to change water temperature compared to what it takes to change land temperature, which means Arctic seawater isn’t as cold as the continental ice sheet covering Antarctica. So, the Arctic sea ice (frozen sea water) is about 10 feet thick, whereas the Antarctic ice sheet (compacted freshwater ice) is over a mile thick."

"The future of the nations will depend on the manner of how they feed themselves, wrote the French epicurean Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1826. Almost 200 years later, how nations feed themselves has gotten a lot more complicated. That’s particularly true in the US, where food insecurity coexists with an obesity crisis, where fast food is everywhere and farmer’s markets are spreading, where foodies have never had more power and McDonald’s has never had more locations, and where the possibility of a barbecue-based civil war is always near. So here are 40 maps, charts, and graphs that show where our food comes from and how we eat it, with some drinking thrown in for good measure."

For twenty years the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding has been active around the world helping people in areas of ethnic, religious and political conflict discover strategies for reconciliation and conflict transformation. During the many years since I founded Karuna Center, I have been a professor at the SIT Graduate Institute (formerly the School for International Training) where I developed and continue to lead two annual CONTACT (Conflict Transformation Across Cultures) Programs. My experience of dharma practice naturally calls up principles of the Buddha’s teaching. In the stories that follow, I give examples of ways that Karuna Center and CONTACT have drawn on fundamental Buddhist principles to support healing: the truth of impermanence, the recognition of interdependence or “interbeing,” and the need for a “beloved community” (Buddhists might call this sangha) as an antidote to the Three Poisons of greed, anger and delusion. These stories take place on three continents.
