They articulate and discuss the world we actually live in today, right now.

Versus, the mind-numbing, out-of-touch, wishful thinking of too many leaders in business, government, society, etc. today–for myriad [and understandably more desirable, comfortable] reasons–continue to choose to act as if we exist in the world we used to live in, instead of the world we are actually living in already [and have been for a while now and will continue to, whether we choose to accept it or not].

A rare, fascinating conversation that articulates the world we live in NOW–not 20 yrs ago

Is it me, or is there a disconnect between the news most people read vs. a list of the the top 10 news stories that significantly affect lives across the globe? Just observing. Finding a little humor in the WTF-ness of this.

Beautiful online neuroscience learning

Originally posted on Mind Hacks:

The Fundamentals of Neuroscience is a free online course from Harvard and it looks wonderful – thanks to them employing animators, digital artists and scientists to lift the course above the usual read and repeat learning.

The course is already underway but you can register and start learning until mid-December and you can watch any of the previews to get a feel for what’s being taught.

As you can see from the syllabus it focuses on the fairly low-level operation of the biology of brain but it’s all essential knowledge that will undoubtedly be a joy to encounter or re-acquaint yourself with.

You need to register to access the full content but there’s plenty of trailers online. Great stuff.

It’s fair to say that the “New York essay” is having a moment. Or maybe it’s always having a moment. But with Sari Botton’s two anthologies about loving and leaving and just having a great time in New York (last year’s Goodbye to All That and this month’s Never Can Say Goodbye), and former Granta editor John Freeman’s upcoming Tales of Two Cities: The Best and Worst Times in Today’s New York, one thing is sure: in 2014, the New York City essay is bountiful.
