Les Howard's curator insight, September 25, 2013 8:05 AM

This article had many interesting implications for how to think better and live better. I found the section on creativity very interesting and not what I expected. I came away thinking how important it is to "go with the flow" more.

A Principal's Reflections: Inspiring Students: Bringing Awe Back to Learning | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Awe might seem like just another three-letter word, but it is so much more.  A recent New York Times article detailed how humans can get goose bumps when we experience awe, that often-positive feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world. It is a catalyst that can motivate people to do more good. The article also highlighted the research of Paul Piff and Dacher Keltner who found that awe helps bind us to others, motivating us to act in collaborative ways that enable strong groups and cohesive communities.

Innovation Programs Don't Guarantee Innovation

Innovation Programs Don't Guarantee Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
According to the latest research, 131 large corporations currently operate their own accelerator programs.  Another hundred or more operate innovation labs and incubators. Clearly, companies are researching and experimenting with new technologies to find faster, more intuitive and smarter ways to beat the competition.

Wereldwijd gaat er jaarlijks nog ongeveer één derde van al het voedsel dat geproduceerd wordt verloren. Om dit tegen te gaan, werkt professor Frank Devlieghere van de faculteit Bio-ingenieurswetenschappen aan de UGent aan een slimme voedselverpakking die kan vertellen of een product al dan niet consumeerbaar is. Dit kan ervoor zorgen dat bepaald voedsel, zoals voorgesneden groenten, minder snel weggesmeten wordt en er dus minder verloren gaat.
