    Thank you for this share! I now have a coriander defense argument. But my people will exploit the genetic angle and say that I have some horrible genetic mutation, LoL.

  • I confess that we actually know very little about everything when we consider Dark energy and matter as well as Junk DNA?

    Knowing a lot of less than 5% of everything is like a PhD..

  • "Now we get to the heart of what I’ve wanted to know about curiosity: what holds us back?

    Why do some people retain their curiosity to solve perplexing problems, invent new technologies, or discover new worlds while others become less curious? Answering that question is my mission.

    We usually recognize incurious people when we encounter them, much the...

  • @JennyC the important part of this course that I found lacking is what are the steps we take today feom thus seminal work?

  • Dr. Diane Hamilton

    "The fourth and final factor that impacts curiosity is our environment. Sometimes we have amazing stories of environments. Wozniak’s story is one. He said that if he had to guess, he thought 80% of who shaped us from our childhoods came from our home.

    I advise Learners to do this fantastic FutureLearn MOOC,

    "In Week 1 we indulged in a variety of factors that impact and intertwine with curiosity including age, communication and motivation. Proceeding this in Week 2, we jumped straight into the combination of creativity, innovation and inventions in relation to curiosity.

    In this last week of the...

  • Your poem is the epitome of two subjects I majored in, Physics and History

    What a waste of my time. I ciukd have done Literature?

  • I had a math teacher that gave weekly tests with the following formula:
    - 40% if you paid attention.
    - 50% if you read the texts
    - 70% if you practiced
    And 30% for a question that no one would get right.

    I immediately started with the 30% question and did it in three different ways! He eas so angry that he recommended that I was not to matriculate in...

    In a Turkish TV series, Dr. Ali, is an autistic doctor that knows all the medical books he studied. Everytime that he is faced with a new complex problem he solves it only when he listens to what someone else says. It could be a child talking abiut her drawing or the cleaner about their duties etc. This triggers Dr. Ali's brain which then literally sees the...

  • The National Skills Development Act, in South Africa mentions competencies that overarch Skills. It calls these Critical Crossfield Outcomes which fit into the 12 areas of Emotional Intelligence.

  • Terrence McKenna said that the pursuit of NOVELTY was a key human condition for development. This will have to have a foundation in Curiosity.

  • @JennyC Nekayah is the hero for me. Starting with, Rasellas took 20 moons to rationalise leaving happy valley. She took 20 minutes.

    Her analyses to action of all the experiences and experimentation was just sublime.

    Rasellas is the best supporting actor contender for me.

  • @JennyC the International Criminal Court (ICC) took just one week to open a case against Russia!

    The Palestinians have been waiting for ten years for the ICC to appoint an investigator for 70 years of widely documented Israeli oppression?

    Nekayah would say...

  • @JennyC
    European (blond, blue eyes and they look like me) will be welcomed more than Iraqis, Libyans, Yemenis whose countries we have destroyed.

  • “The decision to suspend Russian clubs and teams from all competitions must be accompanied by a ban on those affiliated with Israel,” Aboutrika stated, adding that “(Israel) has been killing children and women in Palestine for years. You’re using double standards.”

    FIFA and UEFA have suspended Russian teams following the Russian military operation in...

  • "The Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Assn. sent out a statement on Sunday condemning “the racist implications that any population or country is ‘uncivilized’ or bears economic factors that make it worthy of conflict. This type of commentary reflects the pervasive mentality in Western journalism of normalizing tragedy in parts of the world such as the...

  • They are civilised and look like us, The Guardian, 2 March 2022.

    "And writing in the Telegraph, Daniel Hannan explained: “They seem so like us. That is what makes it so shocking. Ukraine is a European country. Its people watch Netflix and have Instagram accounts, vote in free elections and read uncensored newspapers. War is no longer something visited upon...

  • Part III: Curiosity
    "William James
    The founder of modern psychology, William James, explained that curiosity is an impulse toward better cognition [2], one that leads us to how we acquire knowledge through experience. When we are curious, our brain anticipates a reward, dopamine is released, and we gain a sense of well-being. Just as we gain a sense of...

  • Part II: Curiosity:
    "Jean Piaget
    Psychologist Jean Piaget [1] says that we come into this world as tiny amateur scientists. From the first time we discover our own hands, we embark on a nonstop experiment to discover everything. This natural phenomenon aids in our survival in the searching of food and fending off threats and this perpetual search not only...

  • Part I: Curiosity:
    Raselas and Nekayah were motivated by Curiosity. Here is the science of Curiosity:
    "Curiosity, part of our DNA, is no different from our pursuit of food, water, or sex.

    Our bodies are programmed to be curious and reward us when we exercise that curiosity. It is our body’s way of encouraging us to find new sources of food, new means of...

  • @HamishMorrison I was one of countless in my cohort. Sick of our parents' accomodation of the staus quo. We revolted. We changed. We brought down and hounded. We proposed and made processes change!

    And Greta, old enough to be my child I never had says we were the first generation in human history to ensure our children will not live a better life than us?...

  • "This pro-fascist left seems blind to any form of imperialism that is non-western in origin. It combines identity politics with egoism. Everything that happens is viewed through the prism of what it means for westerners – only white men have the power to make history."

  • I almost died treates for liver collapse/jaundice (in Cape Town) after a five month trip in South East Asia.

    I was in the best tropical disease clinic in Africa. Students would come around my yellow bed to guess my condition. They were all wrong. My doctor, after two weeks of steady deterioration, said that I must wind up my affairs, whilst I was alive. I...

  • I broke my leg climbing a mountain in Tibet. The hospital said that I could not have the operation until my Diabetes was brought under control!?

    First time I heard that I was a diabetic! Managed this chronic condition since then. And tested for everything else I might have. To the eye jolting prostate examination...

  • @JennyC Wow! I look forward to your findings.

    I am going to blow comments wide open with the following observations I made in last 48 hours! I would have loved to hear comment from Rasselas and more importantly from Nekayah, were they here today:

    1. At the Carabo Cup final, the standing message beamed around the stadium was, The people of Ukraine, we support you against Russian invasion!, and,

    2. A...

  • @johnwakenshaw you must see Blake's drawings. No wonder Mary eloped?

    Anyway, you learned new knowledge! Life Long Learning

  • @LodewijkJanNauta no response from me...

  • There is another way/option/choice:

    "In a famous example, a researcher is training a small wheeled robot to avoid objects based on sensors on the front. The requirements for success? Reduce collisions. After training the control system, they upload it to the machine and wait expectantly. Nothing happens. They check the batteries and everything seems fine....

  • @JenniferSmart learning happens with experiences! Not just good experiences?

  • @johnwakenshaw not romantic but at that time, I would say a devout Christian! What Blake gave me was a daughter called Mary Wollstonecraft. She eloped with PB Shelly as a teenager. When he was expelled from Oxford for writing a pamphlet calling for the abolishment of the monarchy.

    She wrote Frankenstein.
