LISTEN TO THIS HERE NEW SONG... What if we saw the world with the eyes of compassion...
"Give Me Your Eyes" by Brandon Heath
Please read these words… Meditate on them here… This song means A LOT to me and to my life. It has opened my eyes to the way God sees the world. Something I never stopped to take a good, serious look at before. (the link to the song/video is underneath the lyrics here)…Let me know what YOU think, how did this song strike you?... "Looked down from a broken sky, traced out by the city lights, my world from a mile high, best seat in the house tonight. Then I touched down on the cold black top, hold on for the sudden stop, breathe in the familiar shock of confusion and chaos. All those people going somewhere. Why have I never cared?... Give me Your eyes for just one second. Give me Your eyes so I can see, everything that I keep missing. Give me Your love for humanity. Give me Your arms for the broken hearted, ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten. Give me Your eyes so I can see… Step out on a busy street, see a girl and our eyes meet, she does her best to smile at me to hide what's underneath. There's a man just to her right, black suit and a bright red tie, too ashamed to tell his wife he's out of work, that he's buying time. All those people going somewhere. Why have I never cared?... I've been there a million times, a couple of million eyes, just moving past me by. I swear I never thought that I was wrong. Well I want a second glance, so give me a second chance, to see the way You see the people all along." let me know what YOU think. How does Brandon Heath’s powerful message in this song strike and impact you and YOUR LIFE?
What can 3D printing do for medicine? The "sky is the limit," says Northwell Health researcher Dr. Todd Goldstein.
- Medical professionals are currently using 3D printers to create prosthetics and patient-specific organ models that doctors can use to prepare for surgery.
- Eventually, scientists hope to print patient-specific organs that can be transplanted safely into the human body.
- Northwell Health, New York State's largest health care provider, is pioneering 3D printing in medicine in three key ways.
An ordained Lama in a Tibetan Buddhist lineage, Lama Rod grew up a queer, black male within the black Christian church in the American south. Navigating all of these intersecting, evolving identities has led him to a life's work based on compassion for self and others.
- "What I'm interested in is deep, systematic change. What I understand now is that real change doesn't happen until change on the inside begins to happen."
- "Masculinity is not inherently toxic. Patriarchy is toxic. We have to let that energy go so we can stop forcing other people to do emotional labor for us."
We were gaining three IQ points per decade for many, many years. Now, that's going backward. Could this explain some of our choices lately?
There's a new study out of Norway that indicates our—well, technically, their—IQs are shrinking, to the tune of about seven IQ points per generation.
Here's why generalists triumph over specialists in the new era of innovation.
- Since the explosion of the knowledge economy in the 1990s, generalist inventors have been making larger and more important contributions than specialists.
- One theory is that the rise of rapid communication technologies allowed the information created by specialists to be rapidly disseminated, meaning generalists can combine information across disciplines to invent something new.
- Here, David Epstein explains how Nintendo's Game Boy was a case of "lateral thinking with withered technology." He also relays the findings of a fascinating study that found the common factor of success among comic book authors.
