"20/20" VISION ...

 “Cherish your vision and your dreams as they are the children

   of your soul; THE blueprints of your ultimate achievements.

                                                                                                       Napoleon Hill



   Vision. This is a broader term than visual acuity or eyesight. In addition

   to sharpness of sight or simply a description of the ability to see, the

   term "vision" usually includes a wider range of visual abilities and skills.

   These include contrast sensitivity, the ability to track moving objects

   with smooth and accurate eye movements, color vision, depth…

PHILIPPINES TAAL VOLCANO ALERT



   The chances of an eruption that could happen "within days to within 

  weeks" if such activity continues, Renato Solidum, chief of the Philippine

  Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, told AFP.

  Taal's last eruption was in 1977, he added.

   

  The local disaster office said it had evacuated over 2,000 residents living

  on the volcanic island, which lies inside a bigger lake formed by previous

  volcanic activity. Mr Solidum said officials will also order the evacuation

  of people living on…

The Philippines sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire"

 ... where tectonic plates collide deep below the Earth's surface.



 The Pacific Ring of Fire, as illustrated above is a horseshoe pattern of
 plate tectonic boundaries. The most violent catastrophes occur at
 convergent boundaries along the ring. When plates collide together,
 chains of volcanoes. are created. Almost all plate tectonics along the
 Ring of Fire collide and sink into the ocean floor as convergent plates.
 In fact, about 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur at these zones of
 subduction along the Pacific Ring of Fire.…

Ray Podder's [UN]manifesto comment that...



LOVE [IS] THE OPERATING SYSTEM

Those of you who have followed my own presence in cyberspace, over the last several years, will perhaps remember my declared anxiety about the mindset of economists and more particularly their seemingly complete disconnect with the fact that one of the major consequences of consequences of their own actions, is the fact that financial markets crash. It was during the early years @*zaadz, when I posted quite a lot about Gillian Tett, and her superb analysis of the complete disconnect of economists.

OH HOW THE DEPRAVITY of HUMAN KIND ...

DOTH continue to MANIFEST [IT]self

"Has there been a greater tale of sporting hubris? A seven-time

Tour De France champion, revered for overcoming cancer then raising

millions for charity, brought low by irrefutable allegations of doping.

Yet the rise and fall of Lance Armstrong is oddly unsatisfying for those

seeking a clichéd narrative. Now, as then, the man at its heart refuses to

play ball. The latest documentary about Armstrong, The Armstrong Lie

from film-maker Alex Gibney, corners but – rather like Errol Morris in

his recent profile of Donald Rumsfeld – fails to pin down this most

slippery and defiant of customers. In it, Armstrong shows himself to

be a master of the unrepentant apology, preferring to bully his inquisitor

into self-doubt rather than face his own demons"

Humans of course, are a storytelling creature.





[IT]'s PART of WHAT MAKES US HUMAN. We tell stories that shape our sense of the world. We have strong cultural narratives, like the story that technology will save us. Or that everything [IS] God's plan. Or that the end is nigh and we're on the brink of collapse. We also have strong personal narratives - those we tell ourselves about our lives and identity - maybe that we're a failure and our lives have come to naught, or that we're special enough that the limits that apply to others don't apply to us, or that human beings are so fundamentally evil that anyone's bold, imaginative thinking about a positive future is childish and naive. These narratives are so omnipresent that we often barely notice them, or notice the fact that they're stories - stories that might be inaccurate, or incomplete, or subject to change - even though they can dictate major decisions like who to vote for, where to live, and what work to do. …

NEUROSCIENCE TELLS US THAT AMAZING THINGS ...

HAPPENWHEN WE LISTEN TO and TELL STORIES

When we listen to a lecture about climate change, for example, with PowerPoint slides, graphs and bullet points, the parts of our brain that show we are listening and the part where words are processed both light up. But when we listen to a story, something very different happens. First of all, the same parts of the storyteller's brain and the listener's brain light up together. AND IF we are listening to a story in which someone kicks a ball, for example, the part of our brain that coordinates foot motion activates. That is, we experience the story rather than just absorbing information. We understand it more deeply. We retain it for longer.…
