Stephen Hawking: The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy.

Stephen Hawking: The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy. | Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability | Scoop.it

“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression, it may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory, or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.

 

“A major nuclear war would be the end of civilization, and maybe the end of the human race. The quality I would most like to magnify is empathy. It brings us together in a peaceful, loving state.”

Thich Nhat Hanh: is mindfulness being corrupted by business and finance?

Thich Nhat Hanh: is mindfulness being corrupted by business and finance? | Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability | Scoop.it
The Zen master discusses his advice for Google and other tech giants on being a force for good in the world
LOHAS's insight:

“The biggest problem with mindfulness is that it is becoming part of the self-help movement—and hence part of the disease that it is supposed to cure. Gurus talk about “the competitive advantage of meditation”. Pupils come to see it as a way to get ahead in life. And the point of the whole exercise is lost. What has parading around in pricey lululemon outfits got to do with the Buddhist ethic of non-attachment to material goods? And what has staring at a computer-generated dot got to do with the ancient art of meditation? Western capitalism seems to be doing rather more to change eastern religion than eastern religion is doing to change Western capitalism.” http://lohas-scout.de/1psAwXR

Inside the Big Tobacco-style campaign to bury the disturbing evidence about the products you use every day.
LOHAS's insight:

After this story went to press, the US Food and Drug Administration published a paper finding that BPA was safe in low doses. However, due to laboratory contamination, all of the animals—including the control group—were exposed to this chemical. Academic scientists say this raises serious questions about the study's credibility. Stay tuned for more in-depth reporting on the FDA's most recent study.

Building a scientific understanding of the mind to reduce suffering and promote well-being
LOHAS's insight:
We had a outage at my place this morning and my PC, laptop, TV, DVD, iPad & my new surround sound music system were all shut down.  Then I discovered that my iPhone battery was flat and to top it off it was raining outside, so I couldn't play golf.  I went into the kitchen to make coffee and then I remembered that this also needs power, so I sat down and talked with my wife for a few hours.   She seems like a nice person.

Smith Creek Park

Smith Creek Park | Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability | Scoop.it

The project is situated in the economically strained Virginia rail town of Clifton Forge. It consists of the complete redevelopment of a post-industrial brownfield and warehouse into a public park and performance space and aspires to inject a distinct sense of identity and place at the heart of the dwindling community.

The idea driving the design is that the built elements are sculptural forms emerging out of the landscape of the park. The park is a series of extruded lawns and carved paths that knit the surrounding urban fabric into the site’s circulation. The built elements include a stage with acoustic shell, a backstage with loading dock, green room and wings, a seating area, a sound and lighting control ...
