This is one of the most helpful pieces I've read since the Germanwings tragedy. We are all asking "Why?" and we want to find answers, and we want to feel that we can find ways to prevent tragedies in the future. The reality may be that satisfactory answers don't exist, and our impulse to find something/someone to blame won't improve things, but it is helpful to understand why we react to tragedies the way we do, and how we can better form our opinions when we slow down.
We're far too quick to react after terrible events like the Germanwings crash or the Sandy Hook shooting.

"a strong opening doesn’t have to grab the reader by the throat and throw them into the middle of the action. ... Instead, we are often most drawn in by those authors who can calmly promise us a compelling story and invite us along for the ride."

"Though #Hamburg isn't planning to ban cars from its city center (as has been misreported elsewhere), the city is making it easier and easier not to drive. A new green network, which will be completed in the next 15 to 20 years, will connect parks across the city, making it possible to bike or walk anywhere."

Urban planners are finally recognizing that streets should be designed for people, not careening hunks of deadly metal.

Rather than sustainable growth, we need "sustainable harmony" - Matthieu Ricard #altruism #tedtalks  
What is altruism? Put simply, it's the wish that other people may be happy. And, says Matthieu Ricard, a happiness researcher and a Buddhist monk, altruism is also a great lens for making decisions, both for the short and long term, in work and in life.

"Dogs are capable of surprisingly complex feats of social intelligence and emotional sensitivity". Well, not that surprising to us dog-lovers, but still fascinating.

Weapon Of Mass Instruction: Artist Creates A Tank That Delivers Free Books
Raul Lemesoff, an eccentric artist in Buenos Aires, Argentina, has created a bizarre tank-like 'Weapon Of Mass Instruction' (Arma de Instruccion Masiva) that he intends to use to battle ignorance and spread knowledge. Lemesoff converted a 1979 Ford Falcon into a bizarre tank-like vehicle complete with a swiveling turret, a non-functioning gun, and space to store about 900 books.

How about a 7-day (or even longer) "complaining cleanse" for a healthier and less stressful life?

(And good advice: If you're complaining to someone about their behavior, “sandwich” the complaint between two positive statements.)

I tried really, really hard, anyway. Here’s what happened.
