The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Show: The Happiness Project - Welcome to My Blue Zone|A-Infos Radio Project

Had a chance to hear Dan Buettner speak at The Richmond Forum this past Saturday night. Buettner is known for his work studying longevity and has developed the concept of Blue Zones - areas of the world where humans live longer than the rst of us. A corollary to his work on longevity is his study of happiness and his analytical approach to measuring happiness. Great program and tonight's show is inspired by his work unlocking the secrets of happiness. I promise that you'll be happier in two hours than you are right now, if you listen to tonight's show. Come on get happy! The Haberdasher Read more on Buettner's work: http://www.bluezones.com/live-happier/ Come On Get Happy The Partridge Family Come On Get Happy!

Paul Barry on James Packer - Books and Authors - Browse - Big Ideas - ABC TV

ltrev : 11 Nov 2009 11:48:33am I get the impression that Paul Barry is politically passive in a poor-little-rich-kid kind of way. Perhaps it is just irony or sophisticated understatement.I think it needs to be argued at a political level the merits of individuals controlling so many resources. I have grave doubts myself.I do not regard gambling as a legitimate business not even as entertainment. Poker machines, lotto and now gambling advertising on TV are signs of predatory and useless money making (that one gathers has been emulated by the banking system to the detriment of the world's monetary system). If the money we squander on pets, alternative medicine (entertainment medicine), and organic (?) food is moral obesity then gambling is moral cancer.The Italians voted as Prime Minister the person who controlled their media. How stupid can a population be? No more stupid than any other it seems. We get the media, and therefore the politicians, who permit such things, that we deserve.I have no patience for the mega-rich who plainly do not understand the financial system and even less for those that flirt with scientology. Are these people addicted to scams? Which brings me back to my first point - I have grave doubts about the merit of individuals controlling so many resources. Reply Alert moderator ozzierobert : 13 Nov 2009 3:11:42pm Stating that the mega rich do not understand the financial system (FS), does not explain how the mega rich use the flaws in the FS to further enhance their wealth. I do agree about the merits of individuals controlling so many resources. But what is the average Joe mend to do about this, as the political voting systems are flawed. In this country you can not even vote for the PM, unless you happen to reside in their particular electorate. Reply Alert moderator Felix : 18 Nov 2009 4:54:44pm Australia elected a Prime Minsiter that controled the media as well - and still does. Guess those that voted for him are just as 'stupid' as the Italians? Reply Alert moderator http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2009/11/04/2733187.htm

Good for Whom? Putting Technology in the Service of People

Keynote talk at the Library Network's Technology Forum on October 4, 2013 by Matthew Reidsma of Grand Valley State University Libraries. We need to rethink how we choose our tools in libraries. The tools we choose to sit between us and our patrons—our OPACs, link resolvers, and even databases—are stand-ins for us. When I first became a cataloger, I learned that records were surrogates for the original item, something that had to be a quality replacement for the original. Our library websites, catalogs, and sundry online tools are now surrogates for *us*, the flesh and blood folks who make the library run. We need to take care to choose those tools wisely so they reflect the care we put into our work.
