A Warped Perspective on Failure – Why We Need to Rebrand the Word Entirely | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it
Fear of failure has prevented people from falling in love, becoming artists, telling friends the truth, and chasing dreams without apology. If we are going to continue to shy away from failure, it's time we redefined it.

25 Years on, Tiananmen Barely Known to China Youth - ABC News

25 Years on, Tiananmen Barely Known to China Youth
ABC News
Born in 1989, Steve Wang sometimes wonders what happened in his hometown of Beijing that year.
David Collet's insight:

I needed something on Tiananmen Square. I was captivated by the 'lone man' picture. Such bravery.

 

But the quip of 'no good deed goes un-punished' (not Quranic but more hip) holds true. The location and fate of the brave man is still unknown.

 

But, because of publishing bias (for China we call it censorship - in democratic countries we call it free enterprise) the true story is never published in China. Because of this, Chinese youth (in China) are blissfully ignorant of the momentous events that actually shaped their lives.

 

The Shakespeare mis-quote 'ignorance is bliss' is clearly shown here. The true quote is much more appropriate - 'Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise.'. And is this case it is folly to be ignorant of the history.

Important Stats You Should Know from Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends Report: Part I

Important Stats You Should Know from Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends Report: Part I | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it
Last week, Mary Meeker of Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers presented her Internet Trends report for 2014 at the Code Conference in California.
David Collet's insight:

The thing I notice most in this is the trends in education. The numbers speak for themselves but online advanced learning is growing rapidly both in the number of sources and the numbers taking advantage of the source. This comes as students are increasingly aware of the lack of connection between established institutions and the jobs market.

 

Schools are training for skills that are either no longer relevant or are rapidly losing relevance.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's curator insight, July 22, 8:08 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

"Content curation is about sharing knowledge. By carefully selecting the right content and placing it in the right context, content curators transform information into knowledge. 

 

@Marc Rougier's post comes back on the results of our extensive survey on the status of knowledge sharing in the enterprise which measured how knowledge became a strategic asset for the enterprise - yet one that is largely underserved in terms of tools or platforms to manage its dissemination properly. 


"While there is consensus on the importance of sharing knowledge within organizations, current systems have not adapted to third-party content."


Here's how you can prepare your company to Knowledge 2.0."

Marilú Aranda Landa's curator insight, June 12, 5:18 AM

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 3:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 9:15 AM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

An extremely powerful poetry slam exploring how rape and sexual abuse experiences can be so different while having the same traumatic similarities, how sex ed and popular discourse can oversimplify these experiences, and well so much more.

Which Countries Are the Worst Carbon Polluters in History?

Which Countries Are the Worst Carbon Polluters in History? | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it

"To get a sense of how ridiculous carbon pollution has become, going back in time gives some perspective. So, let’s time-travel. The World Resources Institute just updated its compendium of historical carbon dioxide emissions for each country in the world to include 2011. More interestingly, the group has extended the oldest data. Previously the collection reached only to 1990, but now it goes all the way back to 1850."


Via Laurence Serfaty
David Collet's insight:

Interesting little factoid almost at the end of the article. It notes that while China is the leader in emissions, the UK emits more per person than does China. And there is no comment concerning the US numbers. And Canada who ranks high as a contibutor must have close to worst record per person because the population is small.

As a strong believer in Constitutional Monarchy (ala Canada, UK, Spain), I believe this is a good and positive move. 

 

It used to be believed throughut Europe that Monarchs ruled by the will of God. Muslims believe that Monarchs must rule to obey the will of Allah.

 

In the Canadian and UK version, Monarchs rule to balance the egos of the politicians with the will of the people. Sometimes it works.
