Did you know that meditation literally rebuilds the brain's gray matter in 8 weeks? An average of 27 minutes per day practicing mindfulness exercises is all it took to stimulate a major increase in gray matter density in the hippocampus, the part of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection. #meditate on! #mindfulness #brainhealth #liveyourexcellence

YES YES YES "Every student in America should be required to take a class called, "What Do We Know, and How Do We Know It?""

Woah. This went sideways quick. I typically avoid anything jezebel or gizmodo, but I had early involvement with my Chief Clinical Officer consulting DHS and the development of the Active Shooter training that is now available to the public. I have seen the actual FBI reports and analysis on active shooter scenarios, and aided in forensic psychological case studies of perpetrators.

NO IT IS NOT ALL MUSLIM. STOP BEING RACIST. In fact, the majority of active shooter scenarios have nothing to do with religion at all. Typically it is a scorned lover/domestic violence outburst, or an employee fired for reasons they feel are unfair, or spouse of a patient in a hospital who is doing poorly and they want someone to blame and threaten their manner of "accountability". Those are the REAL actual RISKS that workers have to face. These things don't reach national news, because they would only highlight failures of the MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM, and society in general, which obviously aren't as click worthy in this digital world.

The implications of this on the future of medicine, health, and privacy are huge. From ethical considerations to technological progress. The most unfortunate part is that science is getting blasted right now in so many other realms, that the trust in "good science" will be further shattered if personal privacy is at risk.
