A New Take on Being Broken

Wow, people. Another really powerful TED Talk here by Janine Shepherd called "A Broken Body Isn't a Broken Person."

This incredible person was an Olympic-level athlete who had a tragic accident and a very unexpected recovery. I recommend that all people listen to this Talk to remind them about the power of inner strength and perseverance--especially when they expect it least and need it most. Janine says "You can't know how strong you are until there is no option left except to be strong." Please click here to listen to this inspiring Talk.

Attention as a Commodity

Hello World.
I listened to an incredible Podcast from NPR Radio Hour this week that referenced this really smart, in-tune person--Tristan Harris. Here is the link to one of his Ted Talks that discusses the way our smart devices are like slot machines; always keeping us jonesing and checking to see what we're going to get with every passing moment we spend as a part of the great world wide web of technology. Really interesting, you guys. Please click here to watch his Ted Talk.
