“The tortoise and the hare met for coffee. They each casually mentioned their recent successes, secretly hoping to appear better than the other. As they walked their separate ways home it hit them at the same time: There never was a race. There is no destination. There is no winner.”

Blasphemy Is Good for You | The Nation

Blasphemy Is Good for You | The Nation | Public.speaking | Scoop.it
What if the right to be a jerk is where freedom begins?

 

"When it comes to ideas—and religions are, among other things, ideas—there is no right not to be offended. (There’s no right not to be offended by speech where the issue is not religious, either, which is why it’s appalling that a British judge convicted 19-year-old Azhar Ahmed of “grossly offensive communication” for writing “all soldiers should die and go to hell” on his Facebook page after six UK troops were killed in Afghanistan.) In fact, if you need laws—and riots and prison and payments for murders—to protect your faith, maybe your faith is weak. Maybe, in your heart of hearts, you suspect that Muhammad was a flawed human being like the rest of us, the Virgin Mary was not all that much of a virgin and God is not so great after all."

 

Can we learn to stand up for our faith with knowledge?

TOC News » Education: Charting our education reform | Public.speaking | Scoop.it
Singapore's #1 Socio-Political Site...

 

"Education is an ever revolving door as different people with different expectations enter and exit. Our reforms should take heed of our societal changes and in the macroscopic scale world developments to change if necessary to keep up with the times. This will take forever."

 

Will it take forever? Even if the model doesn't change, I think children will keep up within the next generation.

The mind's I

The mind's I | Public.speaking | Scoop.it

1) "'Is that the clock striking 12?' Cinderella exclaimed. 'Dear me, I shall be late.'" This, as he says, is "a combination of direct or quoted speech and a narrator's description". 2) "Cinderella asked if the clock was striking 12 and expressed a fear that she would be late." This is reported or indirect speech, "in which the same information is conveyed but the individuality of the character's voice is suppressed by the narrator's". 3) "Was that the clock striking 12? She would be late." This is the free indirect style, in which "Cinderella's concern is now a silent, private thought, expressed in her own words, to which we are given access without the overt mediation of a narrator... The effect is to locate the narrative in Cinderella's own consciousness."

Anatomy of Lying

Anatomy of Lying | Public.speaking | Scoop.it
Lying is both a failure of understanding and an unwillingness to be understood.

 

Lying is, almost by definition, a refusal to cooperate with others. It condenses a lack of trust and trustworthiness into a single act. It is both a failure of understanding and an unwillingness to be understood. To lie is to recoil from relationship.
