This is my weekly list of what I most want to share. What have I read that was fascinating, exciting, puzzling, or inspiring. Catch up on some things you missed from the past week. Maybe I dug up a few obscure gems that are totally new to you. Check out the brief ones now and save the more lengthy ones for later. Share and be share to…here’s the list:
Tech and Media
Very cool visual art project from…Microsoft? Shame on Google for not getting there first 🙂 this seems like their type of project. Props to MS, although it is a bit hard to navigate at times.
Excellent essay on the effect of The Media and The Limelight on Gabby Douglas, and our other young olympic athletes.
Health and Politics
I am continually in awe of the human body. When we lose one of our senses, parts of the brain get repurposed to our other senses.
Scanners at the airports have always worried me in terms of radiation exposure. No matter your political position on domestic security, it is scary how little is known about the risks of these machines.
This is a small but powerful step in the right direction for supporting people exposed to chemical/industrial contamination.
Hear from a young woman battling cancer on the detrimental impact of health insurance and medical bills on the lives of patients and their families. As if the disease was not enough to deal with…
Amazing short talk on epiphanies and creative solutions to poverty, the economy, and environmental concerns.
