Projeto Happyplaces – você já encontrou seu espaço no mundo? Que tal criá-lo? | Projeto Draft Marcel Kampman, idealizador do Happyplaces, um projeto destinado a registrar a criação e os criadores de "espaços de felicidade" entre nós Por Marcel Kampman A versão curta para explicar o Projeto Happyplaces: uma pesquisa pessoal que investiga as motivações, as ideias, os métodos, as opiniões e os insights de “criadores de espaços”, em qualquer dimensão possível. E como eles ajudam as pessoas a encontrar o seu “happyplace” dentro desses “espaços” que criam. A versão longa: muita gente cria “espaços”. Durante meu trabalho na Royal Academy of Art, em Haia, na Holanda, e também no meu trabalho com agências de criação, um tema recorrente entre os criativos é o quanto eles sentem que “não tem espaço para criar aquilo que realmente gostariam de criar”. Fascinante. Workshop do Projeto Happyplaces na Holanda – a redescoberta espacial dos lugares que já não percebemos mais Para uma grande empresa de varejo, minha cliente, o “espaço” é também um assunto importante. O objetivo disso tudo?

Philosophy Karl Popper: Discussion Popper's Problem of Induction. Quotes Karl Popper Discussion of Metaphysics / Philosophy of Karl Popper's Problem of Induction & the Evolution of Absolute Truth Karl Popper Pictures, Quotes 'Objective Knowledge' In my opinion, the greatest scandal of philosophy is that, while all around us the world of nature perishes - and not the world of nature alone - philosophers continue to talk, sometimes cleverly and sometimes not, about the question of whether this world exists. They get involved in scholasticism, in linguistic puzzles such as, for example, whether or not there are differences between 'being' and 'existing'. (Popper, 1975) Introduction to Karl Popper The philosophy of Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn are very similar - they argue that truth is evolving and can never be absolutely known. I apologise if this is abrupt - but we can now deduce what reality is without opinion, so this is stated absolutely simply because it is true. Geoff Haselhurst Realism of Karl Popper My thesis is that realism is neither demonstrable nor refutable.

MappingMcDaniel : Satirical infographic meant... La vejez te hará sentir mejor, pero solo si vives en un país rico y hablas inglés | Ciencia La crisis de la mediana edad, cuando se cobra consciencia de que ya no se es joven, que la biología no da marcha atrás y que un poco más adelante está la muerte, es una gran fuente de buenas historias. Tony Soprano, el neurótico jefe de la mafia de Nueva Jersey, o Thelma y Louise, la mítica pareja de amigas forajidas, son dos retratos de ese periodo atribulado. En ciencia, muchos estudios habían confirmado la existencia de esa etapa vital, mostrando que la satisfacción con la propia existencia tiene forma de U, mejor durante la juventud y la vejez y peor en la transición intermedia. Sin embargo, es posible que ese proceso no sea universal. Un estudio que hoy se publica en la revista médica The Lancet, sugiere que lo que puede tener sentido para Tony Soprano, no lo tendrá para José Luis Torrente. Chimpancés y Orangutanes también tienen una crisis de la mediana edad Los latinoamericanos son más positivos

United Nations Surveys on Crime Trends and the Operations of Criminal Justice Systems General Background The collection of statistics on crime at the international level was first considered in 1853. The Economic and Social Council, in its resolution 1984/48 of 25 May 1984, requested that the Secretary-General maintain and develop the United Nations crime-related database by continuing to conduct surveys of crime trends and the operations of criminal justice systems. The major goal of the United Nations Surveys on Crime Trends and the Operations of Criminal Justice Systems is to collect data on the incidence of reported crime and the operations of criminal justice systems with a view to improving the analysis and dissemination of that information globally. The survey results provide an overview of trends and interrelationships between various parts of the criminal justice system to promote informed decision-making in administration, nationally and internationally.

John Keats English Romantic poet John Keats was born on October 31, 1795, in London. The oldest of four children, he lost both his parents at a young age. His father, a livery-stable keeper, died when Keats was eight; his mother died of tuberculosis six years later. Around this time, Keats met Leigh Hunt, an influential editor of the Examiner, who published his sonnets “On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer” and “O Solitude.” Keats spent the summer of 1818 on a walking tour in Northern England and Scotland, returning home to care for his brother, Tom, who suffered from tuberculosis. In July 1820, he published his third and best volume of poetry, Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. The fragment “Hyperion” was considered by Keats’s contemporaries to be his greatest achievement, but by that time he had reached an advanced stage of his disease and was too ill to be encouraged.

Government Will Shut Down Websites Even if It Costs More Than Keeping Them Up, Just to Show You Who Is Boss In case you doubted the purely punitive nature of certain aspects of the "government shutdown," Julian Sanchez at Cato examines the strange case of federal websites: It’s a bit hard to make sense of why some sites remain up (some with a “no new updates” banner) while others are redirected to a shutdown notice page—and in many cases it’s puzzling why a shutdown would be necessary at all..... For agencies that directly run their own Web sites on in-house servers, shutting down might make sense if the agency’s “essential” and “inessential” systems are suitably segregated. Running the site in those cases eats up electricity and bandwidth that the agency is paying for, not to mention the IT and security personnel who need to monitor the site for attacks and other problems. Fair enough in those cases. The determination of which services continue during an appropriations lapse is not affected by whether the costs of shutdown exceed the costs of maintaining services.
