The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

This reminds me so much of how I was taught by my own father. I, too, was a little addicted to the encyclopedias when I was a kid—I had read through the entire set over the course of a summer, before I was 8 years old. I would ask my dad questions that related to what I read, and he would give practical examples so I could identify with the concepts on a personal level. That's the difference between "knowing the name of something and knowing something" as he describes. I try and use this same philosophy when teaching my young clients. Memorization will only get you so far; what you do with knowledge—how well you understand it and how you apply it to solve novel problems in life is more meaningful and valuable, and what our education system should be focusing on..

The entire program The Pleasure of Finding Things Out is fantastic. This short video clip is one of my favorite parts. :)

I hope this valuable website, which links to some of the most interesting philosophy, science, culture, and politics on the net, reaches its goal.
I´ve just made my contribution.

Exquisite photo showing some of the marvels of the human body and of the movements it can make. The portrayed woman is an icon of ballet, Sylvie Guillem.

I believe G+ is the first Google's social network in which there is no link to see the posts we like (or +1). WHY?
I appreciated so much this feature in Reader and Buzz...

Dear Google Plus, (share this post if you agree)

We want to see our favourite posts in one place.

Please add a link to the left which I can click on a see a list of all the posts here which I have +1'd.

I'm getting tired of asking. Yet you seem to keep adding things which people are not asking for. Like the 'What's hot' link and the YouTube 'kind of playlist' thing.

You are called Plus. We Plus things when we like them. We want to see them again some day. Give us this very, very easy-for-you-to-implement filter link for the left menu.

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST IF YOU AGREE.
DONT JUST PLUS IT (though thanks!). SHARE IT. SPREAD THE WORD! NO ONE ELSE (but the author) CAN 'READ' A PLUS!

And no, I do not mean the +1 tab on the profile page. (So many people think that's it)
That tab lists the 'external web urls' on which I have clicked a +1 button. NOT the Google Plus posts I have +1'd

....

Too bad that I did not learn Portuguese :(
Here is some skepticism about these results:
http://previousleigh.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/look-at-the-changes-not-at-the-levels/
Obviously, the book that underlies this talk has no real statistical analysis in it, while "the best cross-national studies now uniformly fail to find a statistically reliable relationship between economic inequality and longevity." (See the paper in the pdf file linked from the blog post.)
I am not saying that the guy is definitely wrong, it's just that it is not clear whether he really has statistical evidence for his results, and that other people could not get reliable correlations.
