Are We Putting the (Knowledge) Cart Before the (Emotional) Horse?

Are We Putting the (Knowledge) Cart Before the (Emotional) Horse? | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
What would you say if I told you that all of our efforts to improve public education were insensitive to the actual way people interacted with the world?

Depressing, right? But it's true.

 

"We elevate the wrong hero in school reform every day when we overvalue the importance of academic learning and assume that merely focusing on better curricula and clearer standards will carry the day.

5 Surprising Reasons to Eat More Chocolate | Mom Ed | Scoop.it

Good news:

It turns out there are valid health reasons for a little chocolate in your diet.

Many of chocolate's superpowers -- boosting mood, easing stress, helping with PMS -- are well known.

 

But what about its lesser-known health properties? Recent studies have shown that eating chocolate can provide a whole slew of health benefits, from visual sharpness to heart health.


"Chocolate has a well-deserved health halo," says Beth Reardon, director of integrative nutrition at Duke Integrative Medicine, part of the Duke University Health System. "But not all chocolate is created equal."

 

Here are five surprising reasons to eat more chocolate -- as though you needed any more excuses -- and five tips for boosting its health benefits.

 

1. Chocolate boosts vision

2. Chocolate helps with persistent coughs

3. Chocolate protects your skin

Empathy: The Ability that Makes us Truly Human

Empathy: The Ability that Makes us Truly Human | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
Empathy leads to healing and resolution, in place of conflict.

 

Just as the lack of empathy makes cruelty and oppression possible, the presence of empathy heals conflict. The ability to empathise makes us truly human, and the wider it stretches - from victims to offenders, from one ethnic group to another, from nation to nation and religion to religion - the less brutal and more harmonious a place the world will become.
