I think the comparison stems from the heraldry of the Starks and Lannisters. The Space Wolves have the Wolf as symbol, just as the Starks and the Primarch of the Dark Angels is called Lion which is the symbol of the Lannisters.

Something I know I must do myself. It is hard sometimes.
 
To be contented human beings we need trust and friendship, which tends to develop much better once we realise that all beings have a right to happiness, just as we do. Taking others’ interests into account not only helps them, it also helps us. Warm-heartedness and concern for others are a part of human nature and are at the core of positive human values.

Wonderful insight
 
When young we have a vivid sense of basic values like trust and warm-heartedness, which we tend to neglect in today’s competitive world as we grow up, yet from birth we all have a need for affection.  The emotions we experience today have not changed much over the last few thousand years, but the interest increasing numbers of people are showing in their inner world and how their emotions work is a sign of maturity.

This is important.
 
We need to understand the inadequacy of an educational system so slanted towards material values. The solution is not to give an occasional lecture, but to integrate ethics into the educational curriculum. To do this effectively requires a secular ethics, free of religious influence, based on common sense, a realistic view and scientific findings.

+Mary Koudelka here is something for you to check out

My son's killer startup!

I'm really happy to be talking about this -- finally!

My son, +Kevin Elgan, has been working at a really cool Silicon Valley startup for about a year. They've been in "stealth mode," so he's banned me from blogging about it. 

Well, their official public launch is today at 7am Pacific (as in right now), so finally I get to tell you about it!

The company is Tynker ( http://www.Tynker.com ), and their mission is awesome. They want to make software programming a standard part of the curriculum for children in elementary and middle schools.

Tynker's software enables kids to build games and animated stories using something like electronic LEGO -- building blocks of environments, objects and actions that kids have fun playing and creating with. It all happens in the cloud. Once kids build projects, they can share them with friends to be played on Android phones, iPhones, laptops, Chromebooks -- whatever. 

But while the kids are playing, they're actually learning programming skills, critical thinking and gaining a foundation for science and engineering education. 

Tynker has been running pilot programs at over 20 schools, and apparently the kids are building some amazing things. 

Teachers are apparently loving Tynker because it's a comprehensive, turn-key package of software, instruction and everything they need to teach these critical skills. Plus, it's easy for them to teach because the kids love using it. 

The company was founded by the same geniuses who created Plusmo a few years back (which they sold to AT&T). 

Anyway, you're going to be hearing a LOT about Tynker, but wanted you to hear it first from me. : )

Everyone wants a happy life without difficulties or suffering. We create many of the problems we face. No one intentionally creates problems, but we tend to be slaves to powerful emotions like anger, hatred and attachment that are based on misconceived projections about people and things. We need to find ways of reducing these emotions by eliminating the ignorance that underlies them and applying opposing forces.
