Dr. Toni Frohoff: Life Among Dolphins

There are many great minds on earth and not all are human.

Dr. Toni Frohoff: Life Among Dolphins

Dr. Toni Frohoff, Ph.D., who has dedicated her life to studying marine mammal behavior and communication, argues that humans can learn a lot from the wild animals with whom we share the planet, particularly dolphins. Dolphins show a remarkable capacity for experiencing and expressing a range of emotions, and communicate with other members of the species in ways that often defy human capabilities and logic. Dr. Frohoff emphasizes that there are lessons to be gleaned not only from examining the species' evolutionary history, but from how they conduct their lives. It requires a quieting of the mind, she argues, to learn from other animals, as well as from each other. The way we treat our planet, and the creatures who inhabit it, have far-reaching implications for our generation and many to come. "It underscores the need for awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings." { read more }

Start Now, Start Small: Daily Ways to Build Resilience

There are no obstacles on the path; the obstacles are the path.

Start Now, Start Small: Daily Ways to Build Resilience

Amy Cuddy of TED Talk fame and Bonnie St. John, who skied in the Olympics, are well known for their accomplishments, but they've also had setbacks. The most obvious -- St. John's leg amputation at age 5, and Cuddy's traumatic brain injury as a teenager. However, they credit their success not to the lessons learned in dealing with major challenges, but rather the small ones. In this interview, we learn that "micro-resilience" and small tweaks can mean the difference between surviving, and thriving. According to St. John, "Micro-resilience is a lot of little things across a spectrum. There's brain things, metabolism things, purpose-oriented things, anxiety." Other areas for improvement can be your posture, relationship with fear, or mindset, adds Cuddy. Here, their stories and strategies for overcoming obstacles. { read more }

OptOutside: REI's Audacious Experiment in Integrity

For the last two Black Fridays, REI has done a remarkable thing. It closed the doors of all 143 of its retail stores, its headquarters and its two distribution centres and paid every one of its over 12,000 employees to enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. Here's how Jerry Stritzke, REI's president and CEO, explained the decision: "As a member-owned co-op, our definition of success goes beyond money. We believe that a life lived outdoors is a life well lived and we aspire to be stewards of our great outdoors. We think that Black Friday has gotten out of hand and so we are choosing to invest in helping people get outside with loved ones this holiday season, over spending it in the aisles." Read on to learn about the challenges of running a purpose-driven company and how REI is leading the way. { read more }
