Science Points to the Single Most Valuable Personality Trait

Research is pointing to conscientiousness as the one-trait-to-rule-them-all in terms of future success, both career-wise and personal. Via How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character: “It would actually be nice if there were some negative things that went along with conscientiousness,” Roberts told me. “But at this point it’s emerging as one of the primary dimensions of successful functioning across the lifespan. It really goes cradle to grave in terms of how people do.” What is it? Conscientiousness is the state of being thorough, careful, or vigilant; it implies a desire to do a task well. Yeah, that sounds like a trait we all respect. Money and job satisfaction? “Measured concurrently, emotionally stable and conscientious participants reported higher incomes and job satisfaction Finding a job? Long marriage? “…our findings suggest that conscientiousness is the trait most broadly associated with marital satisfaction in this sample of long-wed couples.” Tags: Related:  Platón Calicles

4 Ways to Learn Anything in 20 Hours “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” — Mahatma Gandhi What if you could learn anything in 20 hours, what would you learn? Would you learn how to dance? In the TED talk, The First 20 Hours — How To Learn Anything, Josh Kaufman explains how to practice intelligently and how to learn any new skill in 20 hours. 20 Hours to Learn Any New Skill It takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in a field. Via The First 20 Hours — How To Learn Anything: “You can go from knowing nothing about any skill that you can think of. If you put 20 hours of focused deliberate practice into that thing, you will be astounded. Practice Intelligently Practicing intelligently is the key to learning any new skill the most effective and efficient way possible. “20 hours isn’t that hard to accumulate. There’s a way to practice intelligently. 1. Break it down. “The first is to deconstruct the skill. 2. Take action and get started. “The second is, learn enough to self correct. No. 3. 4.

The Dark Side of Emotional Intelligence Some of the greatest moments in human history were fueled by emotional intelligence. When Martin Luther King, Jr. presented his dream, he chose language that would stir the hearts of his audience. “Instead of honoring this sacred obligation” to liberty, King thundered, “America has given the Negro people a bad check.” He promised that a land “sweltering with the heat of oppression” could be “transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice,” and envisioned a future in which “on the red hills of Georgia sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” Delivering this electrifying message required emotional intelligence—the ability to recognize, understand, and manage emotions. Recognizing the power of emotions, another one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century spent years studying the emotional effects of his body language. Leaders who master emotions can rob us of our capacities to reason.

102-104g de fil merino extrafine fil de soie par VioletLynxDyeworks The Disadvantages of Being Stupid As recently as the 1950s, possessing only middling intelligence was not likely to severely limit your life’s trajectory. IQ wasn’t a big factor in whom you married, where you lived, or what others thought of you. The qualifications for a good job, whether on an assembly line or behind a desk, mostly revolved around integrity, work ethic, and a knack for getting along—bosses didn’t routinely expect college degrees, much less ask to see SAT scores. As one account of the era put it, hiring decisions were “based on a candidate having a critical skill or two and on soft factors such as eagerness, appearance, family background, and physical characteristics.” The 2010s, in contrast, are a terrible time to not be brainy. Those who consider themselves bright openly mock others for being less so. It’s popular entertainment, too. This gleeful derision seems especially cruel in view of the more serious abuse that modern life has heaped upon the less intellectually gifted.

La humanidad vivirá "a crédito" a partir del lunes La humanidad habrá consumido el lunes la totalidad de los recursos que el planeta puede renovar en un año, por lo que vivirá "a crédito" hasta el 31 de diciembre, calculó la ONG Global Footprint Network, recordando que este momento llega más pronto cada año. El lunes 8 de agosto marca para la Tierra el "Día del Sobregiro" ("Earth overshoot day" en inglés). A partir de esa fecha, "vivimos a crédito", anunció la ONG en un comunicado conjunto con WWF. Para hacer el cálculo, Global Footprint tiene en cuenta la huella de carbono, los recursos consumidos para la pesca, la ganadería y la agricultura, así como la construcción y el uso de agua. En 2015, el Día del Sobregiro de la Tierra llegó el 13 de agosto. "Para satisfacer nuestras necesidades, actualmente necesitamos el equivalente a 1,6 planetas" por año, señalaron ambas organizaciones. "Vivir a crédito solo puede ser provisional porque la naturaleza no es un yacimiento en el que podamos extraer indefinidamente" recursos, subrayan.

Weaving - Wikipedia A satin weave, common for silk, each warp thread floats over 16 weft threads. The way the warp and filling threads interlace with each other is called the weave. The majority of woven products are created with one of three basic weaves: plain weave, satin weave, or twill. Woven cloth can be plain (in one colour or a simple pattern), or can be woven in decorative or artistic design. Process and terminology[edit] Weaving can be summarized as a repetition of these three actions, also called the primary motion of the loom. The warp is divided into two overlapping groups, or lines (most often adjacent threads belonging to the opposite group) that run in two planes, one above another, so the shuttle can be passed between them in a straight motion. The secondary motion of the loom are the: The tertiary motions of the loom are the stop motions: to stop the loom in the event of a thread break. warp stop motionweft stop motion Weaving pattern cards used by Skye Weavers, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Se dispara venta de bolsas reutilizables por nuevo impuesto Este sábado, Andrea Jiménez estuvo en el HomeCenter de Envigado, para aprovechar las ofertas por la prima de mitad de año. Después de una esperar en la fila, el joven que atendía la caja le informó que a partir de ese día deberá pagar el impuesto de 20 pesos por unidad de bolsa plástica. Como la mujer, varios clientes fueron sorprendidos con la vigencia de la nueva reglamentación. No obstante, este fin de semana solo uno de cada siete de los consumidores compró la bolsa plástica, estimó la jefe de Gestión Ambiental de HomeCenter, Claudia Moesker. “Algunas tiendas nos han reportado que de unas 7.000 transacciones en un día, solo se llevaron 1.000 bolsas”, dijo la ejecutiva, quien también señaló que ese resultado fortalece su meta de llegar al cero empaque de ese material. Al respecto, Jiménez manifestó que seguirá pagando las bolsas, “pues siguen teniendo un precio muy bajo” y porque las utiliza para arrojar la basura en su casa.

List of textile fibres - Wikipedia Textile fibres can be created from many natural sources (animal hair or fur, insect cocoons as with silk worm cocoons), as well as semisynthetic methods that use naturally occurring polymers, and synthetic methods that use polymer-based materials, and even minerals such as metals to make foils and wires. The textile industry requires that fibre content be provided on content labels. These labels are used to test textiles under different conditions to meet safety standards (for example, for flame-resistance), and to determine whether or not a textile is machine washable or must be dry-cleaned. Common textile fibres used in global fashion today include:[1][2][3] Animal-based fibres[edit] Plant-based fibres (cellulosic fibres)[edit] Mineral-based fibres[edit] Synthetic fibres[edit] See also[edit] References[edit]
