Barb Jemmott's curator insight, December 1, 2012 1:14 AM

A powerful poem and comments on the effect of words on the human spirit. Each of us has felt the sting of unkind words at one time or another. This passage below is taken directly fom the article and reminds us that word have power:

 

Ask yourself some pointed questions before speaking:

 Are my thoughts kind?

 Will these words build the other person up or discourage them?

 Will my words make the world a more loving place?

 If the answer to any of these questions is no, then silence is a better option.

 Words have the power of life and death. Choose life. Choose love.

 Choose encouragement.

Barb Jemmott's curator insight, December 17, 2012 10:53 PM

This infographic offers some insight into Introverts and Extroverts. We constantly view other peoples' behaviours and actions from our own personal perspectives. If we can recognize and respect the differences we bring and find around us, we would benefit from the concept of "all hands on deck," and then even appreciate the concept of "the rising tide lifts all ships".  What would that look like for you?

 

A good infographic to print and post on your office wall?

Why should families have to pay a SECOND tax on wealth that has already been taxed heavily the first time around?  It's legalized theft, and every freedom loving American should stand against it.

Where Will The Next Pandemic Come From? And How Can We Stop It?

Where Will The Next Pandemic Come From? And How Can We Stop It? | Relax & Tune In | Scoop.it

Very interesting article on filoviruses in Popular Science from David Quammen's new book, Spillover  . Style of the article reminded me a lot of Richard Preston's  excellent The Hot Zone (1994) and covers similar territory with more upto date insight, information and examples including the background to the 2008 CCD, WHO amd NICD paper on discovery of Marbug virus reservour n a large fruit bat Colony in Uganda. 

 

The dangers presented by zoonoses (transferance of animal disease to humans) are real and severe, but the degree of uncertainties is also high. Too many factors vary randomly, or almost randomly, in that system. Prediction, in general, so far as all these diseases are concerned, is a tenuous proposition, more likely to yield false confidence than actionable intelligence. The practical alternative to soothsaying, as one expert put it, is “improving the scientific basis to improve readiness.” By “the scientific basis” he meant the understanding of which virus groups to watch, the field capabilities to detect spillovers in remote places before they become regional outbreaks, the organizational capacities to control outbreaks before they become pandemics, plus the laboratory tools and skills to recognize known viruses speedily, to characterize new viruses almost as fast, and to create vaccines and therapies without much delay. If we can’t predict a forthcoming influenza pandemic or any other newly emergent virus, we can at least be vigilant; we can be well prepared and quick to respond; we can be ingenious and scientifically sophisticated in the forms of our response. Good article and Quammen's book is on the must read list for this year. Learn more by clicking on the image or the title for more information.

This is something we just discussed in our class today, how technology is changing so many things about our culture. The one that really does not surprise me is the fact that people set themselves up for getting burglarized because they post that they are not home, on vacation and details like that. The scary one, as a parent is the bullying that occurs online. Kids and adults need to realize that even though you are talking online to someone, they are still a person with feelings, not an object like the computer screen.

9 Reasons You’re Stuck Where You Are

9 Reasons You’re Stuck Where You Are | Relax & Tune In | Scoop.it

Life is change; it is forever moving.  Staying stuck is a choice.

For it is a choice, not a chance, that determines your destiny.  The road may be long, but it’s wide open.  As Lao Tzu once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”  If you don’t like the way your life is at the moment, you have the choice to change it.  Actually, you owe it to yourself to change it.  But you can only shift your current situation one small step at a time.

The Most Dangerous Word in the English Language

I should have said something.
I should go back to school.
I should have just said I was sorry.
I should have stood up for myself.
I should talk to my boss about how unhappy I am.
I should have spent my time with my kids when they were smaller.
I should have told her how I feel.
