Putting idle CPU cycles to work for good (in the world)

Sitting is the new smoking... How are you adjusting?

Even if you exercise on a regular basis that may not be enough. There is mounting evidence that exercise will not undo the damage done by prolonged sitting. Our technology has made us the most sedentary humans in history.

Standing rather than sitting for three hours a day, five days a week, is enough to shed eight pounds of fat in a year.

These are some of the most adrenaline-pumping, jaw-dropping photos you'll ever see. Wired.

Agree!

Are you doing "Ok"? What do experts do and how do they get there? This was a very interesting read. I'm learning Tango and as a lead I am looking forward to the time when you're learning and you don't have to think about, well, everything! What move comes next? Where are my feet? Body position? Are we going to run into anything? This is a nice overview of the learning process, how we strive to get to autopilot. More importantly, what experts do differently.

Watch closely as the young Chinese embrace the themes of creativity and entrepreneurship. Their strong economy and growth inviting them to take more risks and opportunity.

A young Chinese friend of mine said something that translates like this, "Taking a job where your future is certain is pathetic." giggle something tells me there are going to be kicking our 屁股 very soon!
 
This will totally rock your Friday, guys! Hope you have a great weekend ahead!

Remember all of the tourist with their hand held video cameras. Next up? Tourists with drones. I can happen. 

Hmm, I'm enjoying a beautiful vista, let's say the Grand Canyon, when suddenly a drone rises up over the rim, startling all of us. What do you imagine?

Thank-you Internet! I'm seeing a commercial for a telecommunications company on the other side of the world. Inspirational. Moving. Powerful. With a message that transcends culture, language, race, etc..

+Catherine Maguire I agree with the point that Money is educational. No expert, but in many cases (how many?) we are dealing with addiction psychology. Here money is a cruel teacher because of the potential (or is it liberty) for the receiver to simply drink themselves to death, enabled by the giving. I would argue that an addict feels like they have "free choice". Also, this money may simply be a bridge to a dark future, where another meal or two simply delays the inevitable. 

Let's just agree that there are many nuances to this issue and there are some underlying reasons there is still homelessness and hunger in one of the richest societies in the world. Until we solve the imbalances, can we offer compassionate assistance?

Story
Tagline
Feeling a real need to make a difference using social engineering and entrepreneurship. Somehow. Searching. Wondering. Waiting. Watching.
Introduction
Uncomfortable with the status quo.

I feel that the time is now for the confluence of social entrepreneurship, connected and collaborative minds, technology, to create transparency that is necessary to solve intractable problems that have no place in the 21st Century, such as hunger, poverty, corrupt governance, ignorance, health, etc.. All the necessary parts appear to be here to bring about great change. All that is required is a spark ♥ ...

Isn't it time we re-balance abundance, even if it is just a little, between the have's and have not's?
