History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives. (by http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Abba_Eban )

Even though the ridiculous satire isn't intended to be taken seriously, well-made one uses mockery for more serious truths.

Sue Gould's curator insight, June 19, 5:09 PM

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

Mónica Silakowicz's curator insight, June 24, 9:39 AM

Curar contenido es más que simplemente buscar y seleccionar información.

Witz (tell a joke)

Witz

Der Witz ist der Versuch eines Erzählers, durch gesprochene oder geschriebene, besonders strukturierte fiktive Erzählung den Zuhörer oder Leser durch einen von ihm unerwarteten Ausgang ( Pointe) zum Lachen anzuregen. Das Wort Witz hat seinen Ursprung in dem indogermanischen vid, dem griechischen ἰδέα bzw. dem lateinischen videre.

Murry Shohat - Likes, Conversions, and a "Saved Brain"

Murry Shohat - Likes, Conversions, and a "Saved Brain" | Writing mag | Scoop.it

"I had fallen in love with the platform because it’s a great way to bring content together from a social networking standpoint. I started a Scoop.it on Dental Implants. I was having very good luck with that!

 

Then, when a client came along complaining about a blog and how it was difficult to find people who were willing to tackle a blog for the company, I suggested that we do Scoop.it! In fact, I set it up for the client on a pro bono basis before the client decided to continue with it (Modern Manufacturing Technology).

 

Now, a percentage of users click through to the Industrial Press site, a major publisher of books about manufacturing tech. People arrive by search at the Scoop.it site , find information in the top ten scoops, and click through to the ecommerce site through ads and buy books!

 

It also helps with social networking automation - I automate every one of my scoops to the Industrial Press Facebook page, to a WordPress blog and to Twitter. I love the write once, publish many times mentality. Our Facebook likes have dramatically increased in just 60 days, solely from posting from Scoop.it."

 

"I just love Scoop.it. When Google Knol was shut down, I found it, and it saved my brain! Continuing to use it for my clients taught me how great of an idea this is and how wonderful the Scoop.it platform was for my objectives."

One can laugh also after a time has passed and had forgotten a joke. Or see in an old joke a bliss to just create a new one. Writing. A not describable process.

Sex and Drugs | The Scientist Magazine® | Writing mag | Scoop.it

 questiionDid 20th-century pharmaceutical and technological advances shape modern sexual behaviors?

Mick D Kirkov's insight:

So the question, so the answer: Yes of course, they did but not only.

The human of today is more liberated from the prejudices of the past, maybe thanks to the lived in the 20th century struggle for socialism and women’s liberation, maybe thanks to the antibiotics and maybe even thanks to the hippies and Poona. Anyway nowadays one can see a modern woman initiating to caress a modern man on the beach (click this https://twitter.com/MichailKirkov/status/488762777675509760 or rather go to this "beach of the couples" to see them in acting, a thing that was absolutely unimaginable before).
