+Reel School It's got this wonderful blend of the ordinary and the extraordinary. And messages about from coming of age to mid-life crisis. While being funny and one of the best superhero movies ever. Quite a feat to pull off.

Mr. Nimoy, you lived long and prosperously and we owe you many hours of great entertainment. You will be missed and never forgotten!

Are me and my learners the only ones who cannot login to their classroom after the Christmas maintenance? After nearly a week without access (maintenance plus problems), I got a lot of (understandably) angry learners at my hands.

Well, I have already sent several messages to your support without any result.
But I will try Sam when I get back from my New Year's Eve party - it is already 8pm here :-)

Google engineers have trained a machine learning algorithm to write picture captions using the same techniques it developed for language translation.

I so can relate.
I love the YouTube community, but I mostly feel unsatisfied with the videos I shot and edited becauce it just isn't me.
So I'm trying to work out at the moment what kind of format and content is me.

Good luck with that for yourself as well.

My first video in, well, like, forever.
It's about #Sense8.

Some personal experience
The meaning bit of business is what really struck a cord with me. Although I've had a lot of opportunities to work to my strengths, ultimately I grew dissatisfied with the work I was doing.
And as far as I can figure till now, it is because in the end, I found the work - or rather the services and goods it helped to produced - personally meaningless. They might provide meaning for others, but not for me.

Individual expressions of universal needs
Meaning is a highly individual thing in my experience. And the same goes for the expression of the other universal(?) needs of survival and community.
Twitter or YouTube can be as much an expression of community as friend or family.
For some, a car may represent unnecessary luxury (like for me during my city dweller times), for others its an essential, indispensable way of earning enough money to survive and to care for their families.

The dose makes the poison.
And - as is so very often the case - the dose makes the poison. Me watching a TV series can be a healthy way of recharging and connecting (with other fans). Or it can be an unhealthy obsession.

I fear, I might start to ramble, so I'll stop here. Thanks for thought-provoking video, +The School of Life.

Wow. Simply - wow.
Along with a crew of technologists and scientists, Jorge Soto is developing a simple, noninvasive, open-source test that looks for early signs of multiple forms of cancer. Onstage at TEDGlobal 2014, he demonstrates a working prototype of the mobile platform for the first time.

For democracy to really work, you need real options, at least three. One option is no choice at all, two options is just a dilemma. But from three different options on, you really have choice.
So look around if you can find those options, either on the local or on the national level. Or - if you are really dissatisfied - you could set out to create your own.

(And, no, in the context of how our political systems are set up, not voting does not count as an option to influence politics.)

+Enzo LaRocca you're exactly right there. The effect of major parties seeing that others are voting for a third party can influence their policies. In many cases, though (I know it's true of US Presidential elections, for example), it can have a more direct impact: it allows them to get official funding for their next campaign, if tehy reach a certain threshold.
