From industrial to creative, re-branding Sacramento with artful dumpsters
The southeastern quadrant of Sacramento is an industrial community that has seen many industries come through: mining, truck farming, recycling. Now, a group that advocates for the community has decided to re-brand it by asking artists to paint dumpsters.

Within an emphasis of studia in academia, it is always encouraged to avoid a 'debating society' and read to learn what scientists in 'civil society' actually study from the perspective of political scientists and not 'politics' as some people understand it.  So yes, I do agree that people should find their calling and put 100% in to it and they can always change gears if after a reasonable time, depending on circumstances, they must be content and happy in life with age being a determinant force without underestimating the strength and importance of income and financial knowledge for the young as opposed to the advanced age folks like myself.  I always qualify, or try to, when it's just a matter of opinion for me based on empirical studies which comes from a life of academia and practicing a profession that included 24/7 and 365 days a year type of accountability.  So, I am grateful.

We need to talk about why we don’t want kids
Becoming a parent is always going to be a default setting, but it shouldn't be, says author Meghan Daum. She has edited a new book that features essays by writers who explain their position on not having children.

Judging a book by its cover is nonsense. Actually read the article & study before jumping to conclusions. Then come back here and argue - with evidence.
http://www.nature.com/neuro/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nn.3983.html

The ONLY thing they actually claimed is that as income increases, childrens' brains are more likely to be more wrinkly. That's it.

They are NOT claiming that every person born into poverty always has a reduced brain size. All they claim is that the stress of poverty can affect brain size. They also do NOT claim that a person is incapable of succeeding despite this development, or poverty. In fact, if you actually read the article, you'll see this paragraph:

TL;DR: Still, the disadvantages of being born in poverty are not irreversible, the experts say. With quality care and nutrition, a child born in destitution can have the same potential as the highly privileged.

Kudos, +PBS, for the reporting.

If you missed part 2 of Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies -- "The Blind Men and the Elephant," stream it online now at http://to.pbs.org/19EbcLu or via PBS's various apps (pbs.org/anywhere)

We're seeing quite a lot of online discussions while this show is being broadcast this week. What do you think of it?

Collection of rare photographs offers a new look at the Civil War (from PBS NewsHour)
In our NewsHour Shares video of the day, 87-year-old Robin Stanford, who has been collecting rare Civil War images for five decades, recently donated more than 500 images to the Library of Congress. The Library has digitized dozens of the stereographs, an early form of 3-D image, and made them available online.

It should be mentioned that stereophotographs/videos are actually 4D. Time is a dimension plus logically 3 spatial dimensions make it more than 3D. Especially in this kind of old historically interesting footage the extra dimension is one of its main point of importance. Not a gimmick. 2D photograph or video is also actually 3D.

I just finished watching the film. I did some work as a Clinical Research Nurse coordinator and I never get tired of hearing the stories of healing heads, hearts and hands.
