Just popped in on the end of this and it was delightful. I hope the chat video is archived and shared.
 
Bringing more diversity to the outdoors is essential to preserving our natural heritage for future generations. Join Sierra Club President +Allison Chin for a Google+ Hangout on how the environmental movement needs diversity and why the Sierra Club’s motto -- “explore, enjoy, and protect” -- appeals to communities of all background.

La chanson "Agadir" de Omajil rend hommage à la beauté et à l'histoire de la ville d'Agadir. Elle nous entraîne aux quatres coins de cette ville en nous faisant découvrir toute sa richesse: de la médina à la marina, sans oublier la baie, le port et la magnifique kasbah. Cette chanson est une histoire d'amour entre un homme et sa terre d"origine

Oil vs. education: "When you don't have resources, you become resourceful."
Education is a better economic driver than a country’s natural resources.

Using statistics to uncover human rights violations. via +Ben Goldacre. "Traditionally, human rights work has been more akin to investigative reporting, but Ball is the most influential of a handful of people around the world who see that world not in terms of words, but of figures. His specialty is applying quantitative analysis to mountains of anecdotes, finding the correlations that coax out a story that cannot easily be dismissed."
On March 13, 2002, in a courtroom in The Hague, something different happened. In the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, Patrick Ball, an American statistician, presented numbers to support the case that Mil...

People with dementia become emotionally and physically difficult to care for; their own family members and partners are often not equipped to deal with the sometimes violent, often depressing changes that occur in the behavior of a loved one. Here is an amazing, scary and deeply moving story about people convicted of terrible, violent crimes finding compassion in themselves while caring for their demented fellow prisoners.
At a California prison, prisoners doing time for murder are caring for inmates with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia.

This reminds me of the time I took some summer school girls on a hike in upstate New York. Me: This is wood sorrel, it has a lemony taste. And these are wild blackberries. Girl from the Bronx: You can eat plants???

Please send this to every environmental educator you know.
I'm 28. I have a full time job leading urban kids on nature hikes. I simply write down shit they say. GHETTOHIKES@GMAIL.COM

Today = public health win x 2. The Komen Foundation continues to fund breast cancer screening at Planned Parenthood, and the CDC officially recommends more widespread use of a vaccine that can prevent several forms of cancer in both women and men.
Federal health officials recommended on Thursday that all boys be routinely vaccinated against infection with human papillomavirus, or HPV.

One of the most beautiful aspects of science is that while there is so much we can see and smell and feel around us, there's an inconceivably large universe around us full of things we can't d...

Hmm. I wonder what makes a video 'active' (not passive)?
 
Most science videos are passive and often don't improve knowledge
Derek Muller discovered why: +Veritasium Films

1. Students think they know it
2. They don't pay utmost attention
3. They don't recognize that what is presented differs from what they were already thinking
4. They don't learn a thing.
5. They get more confident in ideas they were thinking before.

Holy cow. "In one year, women dropped from 20 percent of behind-the-scenes entertainment television roles to just 4 percent. Worldwide, women are the subjects of 24 percent of news stories. Just 21 percent of Sunday morning television commentators are women. Only a third of speaking characters in films are female (and about a quarter of them are dressed sexily). Women direct 5 percent of films. And it's not for lack of talent or enthusiasm: Women make up 73 percent of journalism and mass communication graduates."
About half the time, we should be hiring the best woman for the job.

you'd think these sorts of articles would encourage people to take a look at themselves and their sexism and change, but it just sends a flag out to quitters that this is the formula, so better sign up to be a dude. blah.

"New research suggests that your own ability to get things done—not to mention your success in non-work relationships—is highly correlated with how you see others. Are your coworkers capable and kind, or are they, dare I say, incompetent jerks?" "So keep in mind that you may, in fact, be the author of your own misery."
