Against the Clock: How Tech Has Changed Our Perception of Time

Forever is composed of nows.

- Emily Dickinson -

Against the Clock: How Tech Has Changed Our Perception of Time

Alan Burdick's most recent book, "Why Time Flies: A Mostly Scientific Investigation," chronicles his quest to understand the nature of lived time. He recently joined Douglas Rushkoff, media theorist and author of "Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now," for a conversation on what we miss about the nature of time when we only think about it as a number. The conversation touches on the tension between experienced time and number time, how to align more closely to the body's natural chrono-biology, and how, because of technology, we are losing the experience of the expansiveness of time. { read more }

Leave your watch at home, switch off your phone, and go for a good long walk around your neighborhood. How does it feel to disconnect from the clock for a little while?

Thomas Ponce: On Behalf of All Living Beings

The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man

- Charles Darwin -

Thomas Ponce: On Behalf of All Living Beings

Thomas Ponce is a 16-year-old animal rights advocate and a citizen lobbyist from Casselberry, Florida. He is the founder of Lobby For Animals, the Coordinator for Fin Free FL, and founder of Harley's Home, which is used as his school-based animal rights club. A vegetarian at age of 4, he began writing about animal rights at the age of 5. Soon after, Thomas's parents realized that his advocacy for animals was not a phase, but a way of life. "I feel that it is our responsibility as both citizens and human beings to use our minds, hearts and voices to speak up against the injustices we see in the world," explains Thomas.

Sergeant Helps Abandoned Animals in Afghanistan Find Homes

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

- Mahatma Gandhi -

Sergeant Helps Abandoned Animals in Afghanistan Find Homes

While Staff Sgt. Edwin Caba served in Afghanistan, a litter of puppies born on his base brought a sense of much needed joy and relief to the soldiers. Many didn't want to part with them once their tour ended. Enter Nowzad Dogs. Since 2007, the nonprofit has reunited more than 700 soldiers with the animals they cared for on duty. As the only official animal shelter in the country, it also helps find homes for abandoned animals in Afghanistan. Founder Pen Farthing, a former Royal Marine sergeant, named the organization after after Nowzad -- a dog that adopted Farthing, and followed him back to base after he broke up a dogfight. The dog had such an effect on Farthing that he found a way to take her home. In doing so, he realized he wanted to help others do the same. { read more }

Why Stories Matter

The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another.

- Jack Kornfield -

Why Stories Matter

"Storytelling, recognised in every society as a way of making sense of cultural roots or social reality, is an elaborate form of metaphor, and memoir is its masterpiece: life stories enable us to share insights and enhance mutual understanding in a social, political, psychological and spiritual sense. Memoir is revolutionary precisely because, when shared, it's a way towards the truth." In this essay, Paul Tritschler skillfully demonstrates how sharing our human stories can connect us, change us, even save us. As common travelers on this earth, we are more similar than different, kept apart by our own mental barriers. Here, Tritschler shares two experiences from his journey where he learned about empathy, altruism, joy, and sacrifice from strangers who broke down barriers with little more than their human spirit. { read more }
