The Mindful Student - Behavioral Scientist

The Mindful Student - Behavioral Scientist | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
This is part one of a two-part series exploring how schools can implement mindfulness.

Imagine. It’s 8am. You’re in the back of a 6th grade science classroom. The students are sitting up tall in their chairs, their eyes gently closed. The teacher walks slowly around the room and guides them through a breathing exercise. “As you breathe, you may notice your attention drifting to thoughts that come into your head, distracting you from your breath… Treat these thoughts like trains coming into a station… Simply let them pass through, returning your attention to your breath…”

Implementing the new Urban Agenda by strengthening Urban-Rural Linkages

Implementing the new Urban Agenda by strengthening Urban-Rural Linkages | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
This publication on Urban-Rural Linkages reaffirms that the discourse on urbanization must depart from the traditional and outdated dichotomy of urban and rural; in order for urban and rural areas to be sustainable they must develop in tandem, inequalities must be reduced and the development gap bridged. Urban and rural spaces are inextricably linked economically, socially and environmentally and cannot be adequately dealt with in isolation from one another. Recognizing this urban-rural continuum also highlights how partnerships, collaboration and unity in action can yield dividends for all people, regardless of age, gender or whether they live in urban or rural areas.

10 tips for getting started with machine learning

10 tips for getting started with machine learning | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
Machine learning (ML) is fast becoming a litmus test for forward-thinking CIOs. Companies that fail to adopt machine learning for product development or business operations risk falling behind more nimble competitors in the coming decade. That's according to Dan Olley, who as the CTO of Elsevier, the scientific and health information unit of RELX Group, has ratcheted up his organization's adoption of ML technologies in recent years.

Causes of Death

Causes of Death | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
There are many ways to die. Cancer. Infection. Mental. External. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classifies the ways into 113 causes, which are grouped into 20 categories of disease and external causes. The CDC’s Underlying Cause of Death database provides estimates for the number of people who die due to each of the causes.

As you’d expect, some causes of death are more common than others. For example, about a third of people die from diseases of the respiratory system (like the flu), but less than three percent die from infectious or parasitic diseases (like Tuberculosis).

Liberal Arts Majors Are the Future of the Tech Industry

Liberal Arts Majors Are the Future of the Tech Industry | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
ollege students who major in the humanities always get asked a certain question. They’re asked it so often—and by so many people—that it should come printed on their diplomas. That question, posed by friends, career counselors, and family, is “What are you planning to do with your degree?” But it might as well be “What are the humanities good for?”

Boards Can’t Wait for CEOs to Prioritize Digital Change

Boards Can’t Wait for CEOs to Prioritize Digital Change | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
Is your board willing to be a driving force in the digitization of the company, or are you content to sit back and watch as born-digital companies transform one industry after another? Boards must recognize the unstoppable forces at play and drive their CEOs to reinvent the business while they still have the resources to do so – and before they come under pressure from activists to whom the necessity of digitization is obvious.

Is this Japanese concept the secret to a long, happy, meaningful life?

Is this Japanese concept the secret to a long, happy, meaningful life? | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
What’s your reason for getting up in the morning? Just trying to answer such a big question might make you want to crawl back into bed. If it does, the Japanese concept of ikigai could help.

Originating from a country with one of the world's oldest populations, the idea is becoming popular outside of Japan as a way to live longer and better.

While there is no direct English translation, ikigai is thought to combine the Japanese words ikiru, meaning “to live”, and kai, meaning “the realization of what one hopes for”. Together these definitions create the concept of “a reason to live” or the idea of having a purpose in life.

Brazil has nearly 60,000 murders — here’s a map to put that number in perspective | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
You’re probably aware that Brazil is a dangerous place with a high murder rate. But what may come as a surprise is just how big the disparity is between Brazil and other large countries. Indeed, Brazil saw nearly 60,000 murders in 2015, as many as the United States, China, all of Europe, Northern Africa, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand combined.

Pretty striking!

September 11, 2001: If You Want To Humble An Empire

September 11, 2001: If You Want To Humble An Empire | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it

"If you want to humble an empire it makes sense to maim its cathedrals. They are symbols of its faith, and when they crumple and burn, it tells us we are not so powerful and we can't be safe. The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, planted at the base of Manhattan island with the Statue of Liberty as their sentry, and the Pentagon, a squat, concrete fort on the banks of the Potomac, are the sanctuaries of money and power that our enemies may imagine define us. But that assumes our faith rests on what we can buy and build, and that has never been America's true God."
