This is one of the best articles on 'discovering your purpose' that you will read.  It's value lies in the practical suggestions is makes to get to grips with what is an extremely elusive subject.  Don't just read it, set some time aside to start some purpose one=liners and try them out!

Lee Wise's curator insight, January 21, 2013 9:30 PM

A lot of very thoughtful, hands on information in this one.  Not exactly short... but not too awfully long either!

An unsettling classroom experience near the start of his second year in the Stanford Graduate School of Business MBA Program caused a personal crisis for Shirzad Chamine and led him to the work he’s doing more than a quarter century later.

What is Play Therapy?

What is Play Therapy? | Education, equality and labels | Scoop.it

Ever noticed how part of your inner self comes out when you write a story, poem or song?  Have you ever seen your inside reflected in a drawing, painting, or structure you created?  Well, that’s kinda how play therapy works.  Instead of talking out their concerns, children use toys and playful activities to gain understanding, process problematic issues and learn coping strategies.  Play therapy uses the natural communication of play in the therapeutic relationship to accept, respect and understand clients.

Best Ever No-Cook Play Dough Recipe! - The Imagination Tree | Education, equality and labels | Scoop.it
The other day I slightly modified our usual no-cook play dough recipe and it turned out to be the best ever! It’s softer, smoother and doesn’t start to dry out even if it’s played with all day. This is my new go-to recipe and I just had to share it!

Pipeline On Wheels: Trains Are Winning Big Off U.S. Oil

Pipeline On Wheels: Trains Are Winning Big Off U.S. Oil | Education, equality and labels | Scoop.it
The railroad industry is eager to be the go-to oil shipper, but some worry it's moving too fast.

Connie Anderson's insight:

"Forward on climate?" This news is backwards and at least 40,000 people who attended "Forward on Climate" rallies throughout our nation in February 2013 will continue to question, protest peacefully, and convince others that we MUST reduce our dependence on oil no matter how it is transported!

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:46 AM

The idea of using trains instead of oil pipelines in the North Dakota regions is smart, over the idea of the time and energy it takes to transport oil through pipes. Big industry always causes parts of the enviornment to suffer but the lesser of the evils must be chosen. In the area of shipping oil on trains it is the sandy prarie like areas that can suffer physically. With oil business fracking has also been a big issue were rocks deep beneath the ground are broken up to release oil up to the surface. Yes this brings companies lots of money, but causes harm to homes, leaking oil, causing explosions and even earthquakes. This can be tricky especially when these kinds of companies are supported by the federal government

As steel and rail built this county, oil and rail will rebuild it. 

BrianCaldwell7's curator insight, April 5, 8:19 AM

Many hoping to stop environmental degradation of Canada's Tar Sands and the Dakotas "Kuwait on the Prairie" have opposed the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.  It's been decades since crude oil has been shipped by rail in the United States but fracking technologies have opened up areas without oil pipelines to become major producers.  As demonstrated in this NPR podcast, the railroad industry has seized on this vacuum and since 2009 has been supplying the oil industry the means to get their product to the market.  Trains, however, are not the safest way to transport oil, even if they are efficient in the short run.
