How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love

How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it

“Find something more important than you are,” philosopher Dan Dennett once said in discussing the secret of happiness,“and dedicate your life to it.” But how, exactly, do we find that?


Via jean lievens
Vloasis's insight:

Any article with an Alain de Botton quote scores a point with me. Thanks to Tah for posting one of his vids which was my introduction to him.

 

It's so hard to find a path which enables you to do what you love...sometimes you think you have it, and that is itself an analytical review outside and apart from a moment you should be living, or should have lived.

Vloasis's insight:

This Ning article reports a three to four times increase in the amount of spammers since last year...and not once, since Vloasis started in 2011, has one gotten through on my watch.

Love Canal Was Supposed to Cause Cancer. How Many People Died? - Slate Magazine | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it

In the 1890s, William T. Love, foreseeing an economic boom along the banks of the Niagara River, began excavating a canal.

Vloasis's insight:

State and Federal Police Crack Down on Burning Man in Unprecedented Show of Force - | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it

Vloasis's insight:

Thanks to Randy Cheek for posting this one. It seems the cops and the government in general really don't like large gatherings of people that haven't pledged to their cause.

The Boob Jam

The Boob Jam | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Jam out with your tits out.
Vloasis's insight:

It's a site with the concept of making games and interactive software that does not cater to the typical male-centric boob market.

Fights and shouting matches erupt in community garden in Queens

Fights and shouting matches erupt in community garden in Queens | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Despite its serene setting and rows of flowers and vegetables, a community garden in Flushing, Queens, has turned into a battlefield.
Vloasis's insight:

"And almost all of the tangles involve elderly Korean gardeners, officials and witnesses say."

 

This just goes to show that people need land, and green things, and a closer touch with nature.  The city claiming the public spot after it had been made into a garden was a bit shitty, but if the caretakers were really trying to make a profit and excluding some customers, I can see why.

APODIO: fantastic Linux distro | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Vloasis's insight:

I've used Apodio 9 for a few weeks now and it is wonderful. Fast due to Xfce, yet jam-packed and feature rich. They've thought of lots of useful things, like Firefox comes preconfigured with AdBlock Plus. Great multimedia software is all set-up. Highly recommend this. If you think distros like Mint and Zorin have alot to offer, Apodio will dazzle.

This week it's "Crazy Clown", Last week it was "wet" (we were reading about).

Vloasis's insight:

If they think they can't stop it, I have a suggestion: make the natural plant known as maijuana legal nationwide, and instances of buying unknown chemicals instead will drop tremendously.

Doctors from Canberra, Australia, have published a case in which an elderly man 'lost' a piece of cutlery inside his body. (Wtf!!

Now, you Vloasis readers might think that this is another story I've made-up. I mean, a fork in the penis, plus it happening in Canberra? It's the perfect storm. But I assure you, I only wish I had thought of this first...vicariously, of course.

Over the last year, Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been working on a new documentary called "Weed." The title "Weed" may sound cavalier, but the content is not.

I'll know we're living in a more enlightened age when medical marijuana is no longer "the last option," but somewhere much higher on the list of safe and natural treatments.
