We live and work in a world that is an integrated entity, increasingly influenced by external cultural factors. For those in leadership positions it is now not only necessary to have a high IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), but strong Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is also increasingly regarded as a necessary skill to succeed in today's global business community.

18 Unregulated Chemicals Found In Drinking Water Across The United States | World Truth.TV | Geography | Scoop.it
Many communities around the world have been successful in removing fluoride from their water supply, but that’s not the only concern. Although fluoride is still a controversial topic within the mainstream, the other chemicals found in drinking water are not. A new study done by United States federal scientists found traces of 18 unregulated contaminants in the drinking water utilities in a nation-wide sampling, the study is expected to be published this year. It was conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). (1)(2)(3) // They did it by analyzing single samples of untreated and treated water from 25 U.S utilities that voluntarily participated in the study. A total of 21 contaminates were found, and 18 of them are chemicals that are not regulated under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 17, 2014 8:11 AM

The article looks at the effects on society and individuals by the evolution of social media and social networks. Perhaps not surprisingly, the author - Lemoyne College professor of psychology Krystine Batchois - finds both good and bad.

 

The downside identified by Batchos includes:

 

- cyber-bullying

- younger people adapting more to on-line interactions and therefore lacking real-life social skills

- mental health problems

 

Batcho asserts:

:

“The greater the social media use over time, the life satisfaction decreases,” 

 

I think I'd agree with that. There can be no real substitute for real-world life and experience.

Interestingly I now feel more connected to more people than ever before. Support comes at all hours of the day and night - a sentence here and there results in more communication rather than less and increased close connection with groups of peopel who share similar interests. Life is no longer so insular and I find myself supporting more causes and issues of social justice both locally and globally.
