The Three Sacred Tasks: A Climate Scientist & Father Reflects

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

- Margaret Mead -

The Three Sacred Tasks: A Climate Scientist & Father Reflects

Disconcerted by the dramatic changes underway in Earth's climate systems, Climate scientist and father Peter Kalmus set out on a quest to change his life and the world. A quest that led him ultimately to cut his climate impact to less than a tenth of the US average, while simultaneous increasing his sense of joy and fulfillment. What follows are two excerpts from his new book "Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution". { read more }

Rosanne Cash on How Science Saved Her Life

Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.

- Leonard Cohen -

Rosanne Cash on How Science Saved Her Life

In a prelude to her reading of Adrienne Rich's poetic tribute to Marie Curie, Roseanne Cash discusses the insights she gained as she battled to find a cure to her debilitating headaches. She realized the source of her creativity 'comes from the same room as her deepest pain' and argued that we have to listen deeply to our inner truth: "Persist and verify... The power that we abdicate to others out of our insecurity to others who insult us with their faux-intuition or their authoritarian smugness that comes back to hurt us so deeply... But the power we wrest from our own certitude that saves us." { read more }

Be The Change

How can you use your moments of pain and darkness to be a source of light for others? Be still and listen to your own certitude.

The Foster Father Who Cares for Terminally Ill Children

 
"I know they are sick. I know they are going to die." Mohamed Bzeek has spent the past twenty years caring for terminally ill foster children, taking them to doctors' visits, tending to special needs, celebrating birthdays, and sacrificing sleep. When the Los Angeles county Department of Children and Family Services has a child who is not going to make it, he's the man they call. No one else will take them. But Bzeek doesn't just care for them; he loves them. Fearlessly. With all his heart. Knowing it will end in pain and loss. Of his current foster child, he says, "I know she can't hear, can't see, but I always talk to her. I'm always holding her, playing with her ... She has feelings. She has a soul. She's a human being." For Bzeek, these aren't just words; they're his life.

Algorithms & Love: Dancing with the Creative Tension of Our Time

Technology can greatly assist human capability, but it cannot produce compassion.

- Dalai Lama -

Algorithms & Love: Dancing with the Creative Tension of Our Time

"The data we can extract, the data we handily give up for the sake of short-term convenience or simply out of ignorance, is of monumental proportions. But we extract all this data to what end?" In a recent talk, ServiceSpace founder Nipun Mehta paints a vivid picture of today's world -- a world where algorithms powered by big data undergird almost every field of human endeavor, and have brought us to the brink of unprecedented change. While the benefits are undeniable, they come at a cost, to our freedom, creativity and more. What are our options? Mehta outlines two alternatives, to go from big data to bigger data -- or to move instead towards deep data. "Big data is understood by silicon machines whereas deep data is processed by carbon-based life, humans. Big data is algorithmic, deep data is intuitive. Big data powers today's Internet, but it is deep data that has powered the web of our connection -- the innernet -- for millennia." Packed with sobering present-day examples, and stirring personal stories, this talk speaks to the possibilities that dance on the arc between algorithms -- and love. { read more }
