This video does have a political bent that may or may not reflect your views, but it nicely lays out data that graphically represents the economic differences that we see in the United States today.  Our perception is as skewed as what is and what we think it should be.

This is my redemption: I wrote 200 love letters

This is my redemption: I wrote 200 love letters | Social Influence | Scoop.it

Weeks ago, our Digital Media Production professor, David Silver, from University of San Francisco gave us an assignment to write a tangible love letter to our loved one then upload it on Flickr so the person receiving it would have it in his or her hands but also have it online. Professor Silver thought about this assignment out of the blue when his good colleague, Professor Andrew Goodwin, suddenly passed away from a fire at his Berkeley apartment.


Unfortunately, I didn’t do so well on this love letter assignment from Professor Silver... This is my redemption: I wrote 200 love letters

Real Beauty: You are more beautiful than you think! Sketches ... Dove

Real Beauty: You are more beautiful than you think! Sketches ... Dove | Social Influence | Scoop.it

 

A social experiment proves You are more beautiful than you think!

 

Sketches ... Dove. Real Beauty Sketches.

 

Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful.

 

At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety.

 

So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.

 

 

Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety...
