It explains it all...and then some!
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
We are always trying to work out where the music or copywriting / story is heading, and enjoy the journey even if we're wrong. "There is pleasure even in being deceived."
Some new research on some things teachers have known and used for a long time.

Clay Christensen's landmark theory – in under two minutes.
Clay Christensen gets it spot on again...
I’m a child of Descartes. I grew up in a rational world where logical thinking was the best weapon against ignorance, the right way out of dogma, and I still think today that it’s a decent objective.
The videos are extremely interesting regarding the perceived value of art when the "brand" is not clearly identified. Sadly, most do not "get it" unless hit over the head with all the proper branding!
As we become an increasingly visual society, it is important to note the trends and newest features in graphic design...

I have been to an airport, St. Barts, that should be on this list but didn't appear to make it. Basically, if these airports are even worse places to land, I want to completely pass on ever trying them. Thrilling is one word we could use....terrifying is likely the other...no thank you!

E.B. White connects this book to his childhood experiences on the farm and with animals. As they say, there is more to the story than first meets the eyes.

Dancers maximize cognitive function and muscle memory through practice.
I'm a big believer in the idea of "flow" - that place you get to when you don't have to think about what you're doing - it just happens. One of these studies showed that dancers who prepared for an upcoming routine by using "marking" and "visualization" techniques - delivered a far better performance than those who practiced at normal speed. The thinking being that the more mentally prepared you are for an activity - the less of your brain you need to use to deliver it - which seems to leave more resource which you can use to make it excellent.
Not quite sure what it has to do with music - but damn it's fascinating!

Still working on improving a few of these items...the worrying about things I really can't control part, especially.
Via a shared screen, I can see Jan Somers’ nose to nose photo archive as he scrolls through close-up after close-up of two people with their faces turned towards each other, so near they would feel one another’s breath, noses just a wisp apart.
"Belgian photographer Jan Somers has captured more than 100 images of people in India". He is pressing for a global, amateur photography movement where nose to nose pics are used to overcome issues of personal space and to create new connections; it captures the heart and might just evoke peace...
Foul language is a pretty common occurrence on Facebook. We have all used it as some point. Yes, you have as well. If you don't believe me, check out Dirtymouth. You may be surprised by what you se...
What app will they ever think of next? An app for every time you said you wish there was a "thumbs-down" icon? An app for every time you said "lol" or placed a smiley face on your FB page? Anyhow, here is a terrific app for conservative colleges and universities to use when checking out potential admissions applicants. lol.
A fun little app for Facebook. Picks up pretty much anything with bad language.

I admit to being a long time Sir Ken Robinson fan. So, better yet, please continue after this short clip and watch the complete 45 minute talk on YouTube here.
Very inspirational talk that is well worth your time!
Why did it take so long to invent the wheelbarrow? Have we hit peak innovation? What our list reveals about imagination, optimism, and the nature of progress.
My wish list: A washer and dryer that take clothing from one machine to the other; a dryer that folds laundry....a dryer that puts your clothing away. A way to keep dogs from shedding...or a broom that sweeps the floor without the need for a dust pan (maybe that's a vaccum cleaner)...
That fear you feel when you don’t know what’s next? Embrace it.
Students need to be able to embrace that fear, the uncertainity, and wander a bit.
If you are a fan of disruptive innovation, here is a great story for you.
