How Meditation Helps Our Relationships

"How Meditation Helps Our RelationshipsBy John Amodeo, PhD
We may think of meditation as a way to gain inner peace and tranquility. But have you considered how a meditation practice can create a climate that deepens intimacy and improves communication?

John Gottman’s research into what makes marriages succeed rveals that when partnerships are marred by a high degree of criticism, contempt, stonewalling, and defensiveness, they often end up in divorce. How can we reduce these intimacy-busting behaviors and create a climate that supports the love we want?"

„Confronting the new normal“: World Bank launches PIK climate report — PIK Research Portal

11/23/2014 - "Weather extremes such as heat waves that up to now were highly unusual are likely to become the new normal, according to a report by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) now launched by the World Bank. Climate Change impacts are already being felt today and will grow even if warming is limited below 2 degrees. However, with unabated warming of probably 4 degrees within our century, the consequences increase drastically. The report is the third in a series, entitled “Turn down the heat” by the World Bank – now focused on how climate impacts and social vulnerability interact, or how the poor are hit hardest in Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and East and Central Asia."

The Social Conquest of Earth Audiobook | Edward O. Wilson | Audible.com

The Social Conquest of Earth Audiobook | Edward O. Wilson | Audible.com

Edward O. Wilson is one of the world’s preeminent biologists, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and the author of more than 25 books. The defining work in a remarkable career, The Social Conquest of Earth boldly addresses age-old questions (Where did we come from? What are we? Where are we going?) while delving into the biological sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts.
©2012 Edward O. Wilson (P)2012 Recorded Books. LLC
What the Critics Say

“Wilson’s newest theory...could transform our understanding of human nature—and provide hope for our stewardship of the planet.... [His] new book is not limited to the discussion of evolutionary biology, but ranges provocatively through the humanities.... Its impact on the social sciences could be as great as its importance for biology, advancing human self-understanding in ways typically associated with the great philosophers.” (Howard W. French, The Atlantic)
“a huge, deep, thrilling work, presenting a radically new but cautiously hopeful view of human evolution, human nature, and human society. No one but E. O. Wilson could bring together such a brilliant synthesis of biology and the humanities, to shed light on the origins of language, religion, art, and all of human culture.” (Oliver Sacks)
“Never shy about tackling big questions, veteran evolutionary biologist Wilson delivers his thoughtful if contentious explanation of why humans rule the Earth... Wilson succeeds in explaining his complex ideas, so attentive readers will receive a deeply satisfying exposure to a major scientific controversy.” (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review)

Half-Earth Audiobook | Edward O. Wilson | Audible.com

Half-Earth Audiobook | Edward O. Wilson | Audible.com

Publisher's Summary

Refusing to accept the mass extinction of species as an inevitability, "the world's greatest naturalist" (Jeffrey Sachs) proposes a plan to save Earth's imperiled biosphere. Half-Earth resoundingly concludes the best-selling trilogy begun by The Social Conquest of Earth and The Meaning of Human Existence, a National Book Award finalist.
History is not a prerogative of the human species, Edward O. Wilson declares in Half-Earth, a brave work that becomes a radical redefinition of human history. Demonstrating that we blindly ignore the histories of millions of other species, Wilson warns of a point of no return that is imminent. Angrily challenging the fashionable theories of anthropocenes, who contend that humans can survive alone in an Edenic bubble engineered for their own survival, Wilson documents that the biosphere does not belong to us. Yet, refusing to believe that our extinction is, as so many fear, predetermined, Wilson has written Half-Earth as a cri de coeur, proposing that the only solution to our impending "sixth extinction" is to increase the area of natural reserves to half the surface of the Earth.
Suffused with a profound Darwinian understanding of our planet's fragility, Half-Earth is a transformative work that reverberates with an urgency like few other books.

The Case Against Sugar Audiobook | Gary Taubes | Audible.com

The Case Against Sugar Audiobook | Gary Taubes | Audible.com

From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.
Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever. Obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical, society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss, and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.
©2016 Gary Taubes (P)2016 Random House Audio
What the Critics Say

"[Taubes] helps us understand how to make better decisions regarding sugar as individuals and as a nation." (Library Journal)
"The obesity epidemic is an ever-growing threat to the overall health of our nation. In making the case against sugar, Gary Taubes details the often insidious efforts by the sugar industry to hide how harmful it is, just as the tobacco companies once did. This is required reading for not only every parent, but every American." (Katie Couric)
"This deeply researched, well-reasoned exploration of the history and biology of sugar would convince any supreme court of nutrition that it is sugar, not fat, that should be indicted and limited. Doctors, scientists, policymakers, and concerned eaters would do well to heed Gary Taubes's advice." (Mark Hyman, M.D., author of The Blood Sugar Solution)

Strangers in Their Own Land Audiobook | Arlie Russell Hochschild | Audible.com

Publisher's Summary

In Strangers in Their Own Land, the renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into Louisiana bayou country - a stronghold of the conservative right. As she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild nevertheless finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meets, among them a Tea Party activist whose town has been swallowed by a sinkhole caused by a drilling accident - people whose concerns are actually ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children.
Strangers in Their Own Land goes beyond the commonplace liberal idea that these are people who have been duped into voting against their own interests. Instead Hochschild finds lives ripped apart by stagnant wages, a loss of home, an elusive American dream - and political choices and views that make sense in the context of their lives. Hochschild draws on her expert knowledge of the sociology of emotion to help us understand what it feels like to live in "red" America. Along the way she finds answers to one of the crucial questions of contemporary American politics: Why do the people who would seem to benefit most from "liberal" government intervention abhor the very idea?

Publisher's Summary

"Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science, and culture - all in a lavishly produced audiobook of approximately 200 minutes.
After two weeks of hard work and nights in the recording studio, they had their audiobook. Earth (The Audioook) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.
Read by Jon Stewart, the Daily Show correspondents, and featuring a special performance by Sigourney Weaver."

Amazon.com: Eat Dirt: Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root Cause of Your Health Problems and 5 Surprising Steps to Cure It (Audible Audio Edition): Josh Axe, Eric Martin, HarperAudio: Books

Doctor of natural medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome.

Do you have a leaky gut? For 80 percent of the population, the answer is yes - and most people don't even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis.

To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest, and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome.

In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern "improvements" to our food supply - including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains - have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it's essential to get a little "dirty" in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil.

Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main "gut types" and offers customizable plans - including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations - to dramatically improve gut health in just 30 days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help listeners restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.

How A Vegan Startup Is Pivoting To Create The 'Pandora of Food'

How A Vegan Startup Is Pivoting To Create The 'Pandora of Food'

I write about food and farm ventures, from high-tech to homespun.

Micah Risk (left) and Alexis Fox, cofounders of Boston-based Lighter.



"When people are deciding they want to eat less meat, they’re often overwhelmed, they feel lost," Fox tells me. "Yet there’s this incredible network of people that have been through this journey, people who have great recommendations that they're sharing through talks and books and with their patients," she adds.

Lighter is part of a growing cohort of vegan startups that want to change the way people eat and fix what many of them call a "broken food system." A study published in March by researchers at the University of Oxford's Oxford Martin School concluded that a broad shift away from meat to more plant-based diets could save as many as 8 million lives and reduce food-related greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 70% by 2050.

I met the cofounders one winter evening on Manhattan's Lower East Side, at an elegant plant-based tasting dinner sponsored by one of their investors. At the time, they were already well into their pivot but not quite ready to go public. They have raised some $2 million to date from investors as far away as Hong Kong, and they aim to become a global service.

Right now, there are about 40 food leaders, and another 25 to be added in stages. You can only follow one person at a time, but you can switch as often as you like. Eventually, any expert who is vetted will be able to set up a profile on the platform and can direct their clients or patients to the site, Fox says.

Until June 1, the entire site is free for exploration, but after that you'll have to start paying for premium services like one-on-one nutritional counseling. Because the founders want everyone to benefit from the advice imparted by food leaders, a number of basic features will always remain gratis, Fox says. Source:

I love crows and can't wait to read this book! DD ( Gifts of the Crow: How Perception, Emotion, and Thought Allow Smart Birds to Behave Like Humans Written by: John Marzluff , Tony Angell Narrated by: Danny Campbell Length: 8 hrs and 15 mins Unabridged Audiobook | John Marzluff, Tony Angell | Audible.com

Gifts of the Crow Audiobook | John Marzluff, Tony Angell | Audible.com

Publisher's Summary

New research indicates that crows are among the brightest animals in the world. And professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington John Marzluff has done some of the most extraordinary research on crows, which has been featured in the New York Times, National Geographic, and the Chicago Tribune, as well as on NPR and PBS. Now he teams up with artist and fellow naturalist Tony Angell to offer an in-depth look at these incredible creatures - in a book that is brimming with surprises.
Redefining the notion of “bird brain,” crows and ravens are often called feathered apes because of their clever tool-making and their ability to respond to environmental challenges, including those posed by humans. Indeed, their long lives, social habits, and large complex brains allow them to observe and learn from us and our social gatherings. Their marvelous brains allow crows to think, plan, and reconsider their actions. In these and other enthralling revelations, Marzluff and Angell portray creatures that are nothing short of amazing: They play, bestow gifts on people who help or feed them, use cars as nutcrackers, seek revenge on animals that harass them, are tricksters that lure birds to their deaths, and dream.
The authors marvel at crows' behavior that we humans would find strangely familiar, from delinquency and risk-taking to passion and frolic. A testament to years of painstaking research, this riveting work is a thrilling look at one of nature's most wondrous creatures.

If you buy the kindle version and include the Audible version it's 12 cents cheaper than the audible version by itself. It's a great deal and I love Crows and Ravens!

Despite the overwhelming opposition from all levels of government, environmental and civic leaders, the business community, and the public, the EPA and Army Corps are moving forward with their plan to dump 20 million cubic yards of dredge waste in eastern LIS.

The physical sensations of objects we touch influence our more abstract feelings.
By Rick Chillot, published on March 11, 2013 - last reviewed on June 9, 2016

"How our physical body interacts with the world is fundamentally connected to our thinking," says Josh Ackerman, an evolutionary psychologist at MIT's Sloan School of Management. The idea that our physical selves shape our psychological selves, known as embodied cognition, has been a popular subject of research in recent years."

For example, a 2010 study by Ackerman and colleagues revealed that the physical qualities of objects people touched—their hardness or softness, heaviness or lightness, roughness or smoothness—tilted people's judgments toward those same abstract qualities." Great Article - Read More!

“The traditional way of education was by example, experience, and storytelling.

“The traditional way of education was by example, experience, and storytelling. The first principle involved was total respect and acceptance of the one to be taught, and that learning was a continuous process from birth to death. It was total continuity without interruption.

CT Capoeira & Dance Center/Raca em Movimento
1175 State Street, Rm. 207, New Haven, CT (map)

Park in the lot on the Willow/Blatchley St. side of the building. Enter the glass doors and find us down the hall on the right, just past CrossFit.
Experience and learn the various rhythms of Brazilian drumming in New Haven! This drum circle will be led by Mestre Efraim Silva, capoeira master and head of the Ginga-Brasileira performance troupe. Held at 1175 State St. at the Connecticut Capoeira & Dance Center/Raca em Movimento, Room 207.

Our student dance performances will be lead by Thelma Ladeira, a professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer from Brazil.

All levels, all ages are welcome. Drums will be provided or bring your own drum.

Cost $10 for the entire event or for any part of it that you choose to attend. Kids 12 and under just $5. Pay at the door.

From 5-6:00 pm, participate in a Brazilian Drum Circle. At 6:00 there will be Belly Dance and Samba Performances. A Capoeira Roda, Our Last Roda of the Year, begins at 6:30. A "roda" is commonly used in the Afro-Brasilian martial art capoeira, and it is the circle where two capoeiristas (capoeira participants) play against each other as everyone claps and sings along to live music.

Afterward we plan to party and dance to Latin Music for the rest of the evening.

Donald Trump's petty crony capitalism could destroy America's faith in free markets

"Trump’s talk of “draining the swamp” and championing blue collar workers has been quickly forgotten in favour of cronyist alliances. Moreover, it illustrates Trump's anti-market, anti-competitive approach to business relations – a domineering favouritism which could fatally undermine public faith in capitalism itself."

Albert Einstein > Quotes > Quotable Quote Albert Einstein “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein

Received: 10 September 2013; in revised form: 29 October 2013 / Accepted: 31 October 2013 / Published: 11 November 2013 Abstract: With the growing demands from a population expected to reach 9 billion people by 2050, it is unclear how our current global food system will meet future food needs. Ensuring that all people have access to adequate and nutritious food produced in an environmentally and socio-culturally sustainable manner is one of the greatest challenges of our time. ―Sustainable diets‖ have been proposed as a multidimensional framework to address the need for nutritious and adequate food in the context of the many challenges facing the world today: reducing poverty and hunger, improving environmental health, enhancing human well-being and health, and strengthening local food networks, sustainable livelihoods and cultural heritage. This paper examines the contribution of forests and trees to sustainable diets, covering among others, nutritional, cultural, environmental and provisioning aspects. The literature reviewed highlight major opportunities to strengthen the contribution of forest and tree foods to sustainable diets. However, several constraints need to be removed. They relate to: cultural aspects, sustainable use of non-wood forest products, organization of forest food provisioning, limited knowledge of forest food composition, challenges in adapting management of forests and trees to account for forest foods, and in integrating forest biodiversity into complex landscapes managed for multiple benefits. Finally, the paper identifies research

Dialectic - Wikipedia - I DONATED MONEY TO WIKIPEDIA AS A CHRISTMAS STOCKING STUFFER, BECAUSE I LOVE IT!

Dialectic - Wikipedia

Dialectic or dialectics (Greek: διαλεκτική, dialektikḗ), also known as the dialectical method, is a discourse between two or more people holding different points of view about a subject but wishing to establish the truth through reasoned arguments.

The term dialectic is not synonymous with the term debate. While in theory debaters are not necessarily emotionally invested in their point of view, in practice debaters frequently display an emotional commitment that may cloud rational judgment. Debates are won through a combination of persuading the opponent, proving one's argument correct, or proving the opponent's argument incorrect. Debates do not necessarily require promptly identifying a clear winner or loser; however clear winners are frequently determined by either a judge, jury, or by group consensus. The term dialectics is also not synonymous with the term rhetoric, a method or art of discourse that seeks to persuade, inform, or motivate an audience.[1] Concepts, like "logos" or rational appeal, "pathos" or emotional appeal, and "ethos" or ethical appeal, are intentionally used by rhetoricians to persuade an audience.[2]

Socrates favoured truth as the highest value, proposing that it could be discovered through reason and logic in discussion: ergo, dialectic. Socrates valued rationality (appealing to logic, not emotion) as the proper means for persuasion, the discovery of truth, and the determinant for one's actions. To Socrates, truth, not aretē, was the greater good, and each person should, above all else, seek truth to guide one's life. Therefore, Socrates opposed the Sophists and their teaching of rhetoric as art and as emotional oratory requiring neither logic nor proof.[3] Different forms of dialectical reasoning have emerged throughout history from the Indosphere (Greater India) and the West (Europe). These forms include the Socratic method, Hindu, Buddhist, Medieval, Hegelian dialectics, Marxist, Talmudic, and Neo-orthodoxy.

Are "Centrists" Any Less Biased Than Liberals or Conservatives [Archive] "a centrist can form an opinion from a synthesis from two opposed but equally valid points. Called a dialectic. Very useful. Humanizes matters quite a bit." TurtleFlipper ;) - Online Debate Network
