Now more than a decade later, thankfully most people have come to understand the terrible consequences that bullying can have on young people – leaving far too many feeling they have no escape other than by harming themselves, or even taking their own lives. This landmark study by King’s College London highlights the incontrovertible truth that bullying not only robs young people of their childhood, but also directly affects their health, social relationships and earning potential for the rest of their lives. And even more worryingly, unlike the cohort in the study that were born in the 1950s, children today cannot escape bullying once they pass through the school gates.

You look at his pictures and you feel that he had to make them. For him, photography is an obsession as well as an art form." Now the two Scandinavian photographers have created a book together.

Unambitious Loser With Happy, Fulfilling Life Still Lives In Hometown CAMDEN, ME—Longtime acquaintances confirmed to reporters this week that local man Michael Husmer, an unambitious 29-year-old loser who leads an enjoyable and fulfilling life, still lives in his hometown and has no desire to leave. Claiming that the aimless slouch has never resided more than two hours from his parents and still hangs out with friends from high school, sources close to Husmer reported that the man, who has meaningful, lasting personal relationships and a healthy work-life balance, is an unmotivated washout who’s perfectly comfortable being a nobody for the rest of his life. “I’ve known Mike my whole life and he’s a good guy, but it’s pretty pathetic that he’s still living on the same street he grew up on and experiencing a deep sense of personal satisfaction,” childhood friend David Gorman said of the unaspiring, completely gratified do-nothing. “As soon as Mike graduated from college, he moved back home and started working at a local insurance firm.

The Four Strategies to Staying Curious in Learning (Part 2) | Greenlight Research Institute In my last post, I explored how the “learning curiosity” stage of the continuous learning circle helps you make the best use of the resources around you to gain what you need to push your career in a new direction. Four key strategies will help you put together resources and a community to support your efforts. But these are not sequential steps; they overlap and should be undertaken simultaneously. Strategy 1: Read Everything and Take Names This “big picture” phase is based on the self-assessment you do, where you use your hard and soft skill needs and strengths analysis as jumping-off points for a wide-ranging information survey powered by your curiosity.
