From Pope Francis to Mick Jagger -- these famous people took major turns in their careers.
Even Pope Francis had an unlikely beginning. Before he was ordained, he was a bouncer at a bar in his home country of Argentina.
A European-wide study published today in the journal Neuroepidemiology has found that whilst older people with a higher level of education have better memory function, it does not protect them from cognitive decline as they age.
Have you ever shared a frustrating situation with your boss, a colleague, a family member, or a friend and they kept jumping in and offering solutions (many of which you had already thought of yourself)?

Listening is one of the Rare business and social skills
We all have that one friend or family member. The person who we feel comfortable letting out all of our frustrations, sadness and difficult feelings to. You call him or her to vent and complain when your boss says something insensitive or your date is a no-show.

This is elegantly seen in the way ant colonies have worked for millions of years. For many ant species, all members of the colony are genetic twins hailing from the sperm of a single father and birthed from the same queen. They work with such extreme efficiency that a single colony can have thousands of members and take over the bulk of the biomass for the environment they are living in.
Sound familiar? This is pretty much what humans are doing to the planet today.
We have become such excellent cooperators — super-charged by our unique ability to live out cultural patterns that build on what came before — that we have overwhelmed the capacity of the Earth to support us. According to the best estimates available, we have crossed four of the nine critical thresholds any of which would mean collapse of our global civilization.
This is what is REALLY going on. We are now in “overshoot and collapse” mode for our civilization. And we need to address this situation with increasing urgency with each passing day.
At its best, Google marries awesome computing resources with algorithmic intelligence to create popular services that no one else can match: Search, Maps, Gmail, and YouTube have been massive hits because they centralize content and make it easy to find what you want. With an estimated 1 trillion–plus images now taken annually, storing and presenting photos has become Google’s next big project—and a powerful way to pull users even further into its orbit.
