This is almost thinking done for you, or at least immensely simplified.

A really useful summary of why sharing is the only future we have and how to make it even more rewarding.

This is what the "Social Web" is all about - boundless opportunities to learn new things and find/engage with interesting people. However, PKM requires a couple of hidden ingredients: enthusiasm (to learn) and energy (to maintain momentum). #pkm

Why Positive Encouragement Works Better Than Criticism

Why Positive Encouragement Works Better Than Criticism | Miscellaneous Topics | Scoop.it

Positive emotions generally work in an opposite way to negative emotions. So, while emotions like fear, anxiety, stress and anger narrow our focus, inhibit our concentration and decrease our cognitive abilities, positive emotions can do the opposite. When we’re feeling upbeat and happy, we’re more likely to have an inclusive focus than a self-centered outlook, and to perform better on cognitively demanding tasks.

Air Umbrella Creates "Force Field" That Keeps You Dry | IFLScience | Miscellaneous Topics | Scoop.it
Rainy days typically mean lugging around a soggy, wet umbrella - but that might not always be the case. Air Umbrella, which was developed by a company in China with the same name, uses forced air, not fabric, to make a canopy that keeps the raindrops from falling on your head. Once you have arrived at your destination, you can place the dry device in your bag until you’re ready to go out again.

Tenika Wentworth's curator insight, January 12, 3:39 PM

There are many people out in the world who strive to be successful. This article includes different aspects on how to do so. One that really caught my eye was that in order to be successful, you must do what you love and what you are truly passionate about and to have fun. If you don't love what you do as a career, how will you ever feel truly successful? Another one is tto be successful you have to be able to come up with an idea. An idea that not only serves to you but to others around you benefitting everyone.

Let’s Talk About Geography and Ebola

Let’s Talk About Geography and Ebola | Miscellaneous Topics | Scoop.it
Why knowing where countries are in Africa matters for how the rest of the world thinks about Ebola.


Cultural and media norms that often refer to Africa as one entity rather than an 11.7 million-square-mile land mass comprised of 54 countries and over 1.1 billion people who speak over 2,000 different languages.  This cultural confusion means that, when a dangerous virus like Ebola breaks out, Americans who are used to referring to “Africa” as one entity may make mistakes in understanding just how big of a threat Ebola actually is, who might have been exposed to it, and what the likelihood of an individual contracting it might be.  This Ebola outbreak is wreaking havoc on African economies beyond the three most heavily affected by Ebola, and that damage is completely avoidable. The East and Southern African safari industry provides a good example. Bookings for safaris there — including for the famed Great Migration in Kenya and Tanzania — have plummeted due to the Ebola outbreak. These actions are based in fear, not reality.

Kortney Renee Honstein's curator insight, October 15, 12:08 AM

Ebola. Now this is a topic that everyone has been talking about for about a month now. And honestly everything that is being said is mostly things that don't need to be mentioned. This may be a control over our population but if someone like a doctor catches this disease and doesn't spread it fast enough then obviously it won't be a control. But this is a huge talk and the conpericies obviously need to be settled.

Scott Holcomb's curator insight, October 15, 10:37 AM

Great current classroom discussion aide!

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, October 16, 11:36 AM

With this week new Ebola outbreak on US soil, one might think that the entire African Continent is infected with the disease. In actuality, in order to understand the Ebola outbreak in some countries in West Africa, one must first understand the map of Africa and the diversity and square miles that make up the continent. While we are concerned about the virus entering our homeland, those in South Africa and bordering countries are equally concerned about the spread of this deadly disease in their land. Just because we are miles away from the heart of the outbreak, those living on the continent are equally afraid for their life as we are here.
