I <3 Science.

It just keeps learning more and more about the universe, ourselves and ourselves within the universe.

It doesn't stop, until we stop.

 

The lessons that are discussed here are applicable to our social sciences and questions of governance, especially the non-linear nature of society, economy and social psychology and the importance of initial conditions.

 

It's not a stable universe.

 

And we're living and apart of the instability!

 

Think about it.

The Creative Cooperative as an Alternative and Sustainable Business Model: Meerkats Got it Right! | Random Overlaps | Scoop.it
We live in an age of the individual. Success is measured by “bling”, selfish ambition and greed, while failure is forever personal and never systemic.

How to Avoid Empathy Burnout - Issue 35: Boundaries - Nautilus

How to Avoid Empathy Burnout - Issue 35: Boundaries - Nautilus | Random Overlaps | Scoop.it
New research suggests a third way. Caregivers need to be empathetic, but empathy is not one thing. Both neuroscience and psychology have uncovered an important distinction between two aspects of empathy: Emotion contagion, which is vicariously sharing another person’s feeling, and empathic concern, which entails forming a goal to alleviate that person’s suffering. Whereas contagion involves blurring the boundary between self and other, concern requires retaining or even strengthening such boundaries. Learning to practice one but not the other could be the best example of how caregivers can simultaneously look out for patients and for themselves.

Essence of the article is key insight for people in teh helping professions: "New research suggests a third way. Caregivers need to be empathetic, but empathy is not one thing.

Erika Harrison's curator insight, June 28, 2014 6:41 AM

"With remarkable consistency, the data confirmed that communication indeed plays a critical role in building successful teams. In fact, we’ve found patterns of communication to be the most important predictor of a team’s success. Not only that, but they are as significant as all the other factors—individual intelligence, personality, skill, and the substance of discussions—combined".
