"Plaidoyer pour l'altruisme", Matthieu Ricard, Editions Nil. Après "L'Art de la Méditation" (2008) et "Plaidoyer pour le Bonheur" (2004). Selon Matthieu Ricard, la méditation devrait être enseignée aux enfants dès la maternelle et sous un autre nom, sans connexion avec le label bouddhiste.

Emotional Intelligence : how are children feeling ? Principal Matthew Maruff tells ‘‘emotions are the gatekeepers to the intellect’’. What is the RULER program ? Teaching how to Recognise, Understand, Label, Express and Regulate feelings. It is now the foundation for every part of school life (staff members also check in with a mood meter daily) and since implementing it, there has been a marked reduction in bullying and behavioural problems.

batuhan's curator insight, December 16, 2015 2:30 AM

Recently on top of continuing pollution increase in and around china, they have issued a 'red alert'. This red alert has officaly been the first ever making an effect in Bejing.stats show that the air is not healthy to breath and is 49% unhealthy to breath.Although the alert is to come to an end on Thursday the aftershock will felt for a long time in Bejing. Bbc claiming that China's air quality is a key factor in its push for a new global deal on climate change.

Nicholas A. Whitmore's curator insight, December 16, 2015 11:03 AM

It is a real shame that China has let pollution go this far in its country. It really goes to show the sacrifices they are willing to make in order to be a major global economic power. Unfortunately for them this kind of action and rapid growth by cutting corners is what will likely stop them from becoming a major power (due to fast resource exhaustion and loss of environmental resources due to pollutants over time as well as species). The issue will likely remain unsolved due to the Chinese governments lack of concern. Hopefully China's slow shift to a consumer market will provide pollution relief as the factories leave for elsewhere (likely Africa).

Sarah Cannon's curator insight, December 16, 2015 6:39 PM

It's horrible to see China come to this. Soon, air pollution will be just as bad everywhere else if it is not stopped. We, everyone, has to do something to stop air pollution. This world is polluted enough. Stop air pollution so future generations can have a chance to have a good life and not have to worry about PM levels are in the air on a daily basis.
