Last night was a night of women developers and entrepreneurs; clearly under represented in the tech industry, the IBM #BlueMixGirls panel was not short on leadership and mentoring. Very inspiring and a fun group.

The tech part of the evening was the IBM demo of their new PAAS Cloud competitor, BlueMix and all their apps. We especially liked the use of Watson and their personality analyzer. You can enter text and Watson quickly figures out the personality character traits of it's author. (We joked that we have just created a new business... A Match dot com profile date analyzer! Just think, you wouldn't have to screen through all the incompatibilities! OR you can try to cheat and rewrite something and try to get better results.)

Consider taking this class, in 8 weeks it is proven to make students happy. And it's free! I started this class tonight and found this education platform well executed for both auditory and visual learning styles. You can set the video speed dial and listen faster or slower and read the content on the side of the video. The course can be taken for credit if you wish for a fee.
---

“The Science of Happiness” will offer students practical strategies for nurturing their own happiness. Research suggests that up to 40 percent of happiness depends on our habits and activities. So students will learn many different research-tested practices that foster social and emotional well-being—and the course will help them track their happiness along the way.

The course’s co-instructors, Dacher Keltner and Emiliana Simon-Thomas, are not only leading authorities on positive psychology but also gifted teachers skilled at making science feel fun and personal. They’ll be joined by world-renowned experts discussing themes like empathy, mindfulness, and gratitude—experts including Barbara Fredrickson, Paul Ekman, Sonja Lyubomirsky, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. Health professionals who register can earn continuing education units for their participation.

This looks like a good guide to living (and it sort of goes along with yesterday's day of compassion).

Thanks +Monique Priestley! (Are you back in Vermont?) ;-) 
A lyrical invitation to awaken from the trance of the limiting stories we tell ourselves and just live. "This is the greatest damn thing

Afternoon started with a nice FB lunch outside (and met with +Chris Davies) :)
Now learning about the science of awe and happiness. Really interesting research. Usage of #awe shows more contributions to charity and less self-entitlement. Compassion & experiences of awe brings a way of strengthening community even in a cellular level. \o/

Sharing some photos from a recent book launch by Wendy Wallbridge called "Spiraling Upward", Something I've been exploring lately is my desire to find a career that is align with my values. This book seems to address why so many successful women stumble, become depressed and become dissatisfied with their lives. Wallbridge thinks it's because we schools compare our success road map with men's.

Here's my post to learn more: http://lynnewatanabe.com/spiraling-upward/

Beautification of San Jose J-town by the railroad tracks is happening right now right across my mom's senior housing, it's kind of interesting to watch them work.

Check out the GreaterGoodHappiness of UCBerkeley and it will increase and boost your feelings of happiness in life over a course of 10 weeks. They will have an impact on your happiness. :-) A lot of people started out as skeptics.

The Dangerous Side of Language with Harvard Susan Beneach of @DangerousSpeech talks of examples of hate/violence, how to detect, how they disseminate and diminish/counter the hateful speech.

How hate is mitigated:
- Governments (punishment/law and censorship)

- Online Communities (Confrontation/ counter speech /bystander recruitment)

- Platform Architecture (There are rules; help ppl know the rules/ private spaces vs public spaces/ Foster community work for civility, such as counter speech).

Introduction
Hi!  I mostly post on G+ about cycling.

I like the social aspect which the G+ cycling communities brings.
#BikeCommuterCabal #BCC

Other than my passion for cycling (& dining along a long bike route), I enjoy learning. I'm interested in media marketing/events & new tech: quantified-self/wearables, mhealth /telemedicine, start-ups. I enjoy art history/art, traveling, funk/ R&B /Soul/ 80's /classical /Jazz/broadway musicals, and gardening.
