A silly video from an athlete who is serious about learning from others around the world. His show looks very interesting. Please don't judge the show by this advertisement.

Ken Morrison's insight:

I respect that this pro athlete spends his off-season travelling the world and trying to connect with people around the world by learning their sports and competing with them.

How Code-Switching Explains The World : NPR

How Code-Switching Explains The World : NPR | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
The way we mix languages and speech patterns is an apt metaphor for the way race, ethnicity and culture intersect in our lives. Introducing our new blog, Code Switch.
Ken Morrison's insight:

This Code Switch section of NPR looks interesting.  The debut article gives specific examples of Beyonce and President Obama swtiching codes by treating different people different ways.

Why You’re Addicted to TV

Why You’re Addicted to TV | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
Newsweek talks to the creators of today’s most addictive shows about what they’re doing to make sure we just can’t stop.
Ken Morrison's insight:

This is a wonderful article about how television has changed since 2007. It is much bigger than technology.  Producers now make each show to be part of the big picture and to push you to want to watch the next show. In the past, producers's bosses insisted that each episode must be able to stand alone so that they could make money in the future through syndication. Those days are over.  There are so many great tid-bits of insights as well as big-picture understanding in this quality article about the current state of television and society.

 

It also talks about binge watching, a great potato chip analogy and the neuroscience of television addiction.
