“ Humans are instinctively compassionate is a viewpoint that has been expressed, hypothesized and tested in multiple studies over the last two decades. This article explores this viewpoint and provides insight into the subject.” That humans are instinctively compassionate is a viewpoint that has been expressed, hypothesized and tested in multiple studies over the last two decades. Some of this research is referenced in the widely circulated article, The Compassionate Instinct, by UC Berkeley Psychology Professor Dacher Keltner. He cited different studies that showed similar neurological reactions in mothers seeing pictures of their own or others’ babies and subjects asked to think about people being harmed. The neurological reactions occurred in areas of the brain associated with positive emotions, said Keltner, founding faculty director of the school’s Greater Good Science Center.

Stefano Boeri's Vertical Forest gets planted

Stefano Boeri's Vertical Forest gets planted | Environment | Scoop.it
Inhabitat is showing photos of Stefano Boeri's wonderful Bosco Verticale, or vertical forest, being completed in Milan. In 2011 it was the rendering that launched a thousand blog posts; the Financial Times called it "The most exciting new tower in the world." It is a wonderful idea; like a tree planted in front of a house, they provide shade in summer, penetrating sunlight in winter, protection from wind, cleaning the air, producing oxygen and reducing noise pollution.
