Anthony Demello - Wake Up To Life - NY86 Anthony Demello - Wake Up To Life - NY86 Type: Audio > Other How to Criticize with Kindness: Philosopher Daniel Dennett on the Four Steps to Arguing Intelligently By Maria Popova “In disputes upon moral or scientific points,” Arthur Martine counseled in his magnificent 1866 guide to the art of conversation, “let your aim be to come at truth, not to conquer your opponent. So you never shall be at a loss in losing the argument, and gaining a new discovery.” Of course, this isn’t what happens most of the time when we argue, both online and off, but especially when we deploy the artillery of our righteousness from behind the comfortable shield of the keyboard. That form of “criticism” — which is really a menace of reacting rather than responding — is worthy of Mark Twain’s memorable remark that “the critic’s symbol should be the tumble-bug: he deposits his egg in somebody else’s dung, otherwise he could not hatch it.” But it needn’t be this way — there are ways to be critical while remaining charitable, of aiming not to “conquer” but to “come at truth,” not to be right at all costs but to understand and advance the collective understanding.
100 Reasons to Mind Map 100 examples of how you can use mindmapping whether completely new to mind maps or a seasoned pro. I hope the list helps generate ideas for you. 100 Reasons to Mind Map 1. Emotional Intensity Do you consider yourself an emotional person? If a potential friend candidly described you that way to your face, would you be flattered or disturbed? Compared to most people you know, are you stronger in the intensity and range of your feelings, milder, or somewhere in between? Whereas for centuries astute observers of the human condition have noted that people vary remarkably in this dimension — it's been the theme of many great novels — only recently have psychologists come to understand that this difference is already apparent on our first day of postnatal existence — and continues strikingly unchanged ever after. Emotional Intensity clearly plays a major role in love relationships, yet has oddly been all but ignored professionally. The vast realm of our feelings is clearly experienced differently by people across cultures.

Concept maps or mind maps? the choice What are the differences between mind maps and concept maps? (click to see larger) Sometimes you will have no choice. In an educational setting, some educators require their students to make concept maps, others mandate mind maps. Top 10 Deadliest Rampage Killers Crime We’ve seen plenty of movies, books and documentaries on serial killers, but not so many on those who are so efficient and deadly that they can murder dozens of people in a single day. Murder sprees seem to have become more prominent over time – notably the tragedy in Norway, which is as recent as July 2011. This evil act will no doubt happen again thousands of times in the future. What I have presented in this list is no more than the proverbial tip of the iceberg.
Every Citizen Has a Life in the New 'SimCity' In 1999, Ocean Quigley had a dream. While working on SimCity 4, the 15-year veteran of EA-Maxis pondered the difficulty of creating "real" people living inside the simulated city — "real" meaning they would be fully programmed to react with each minutiae of the environment. "We kind of nurtured these visions of what it'd be like to create a city with that level of fidelity and truth to it," says Quigley, the creative director for the current SimCity project. The game takes customization down to a minute level: Each person living in your city will be simulated by the game's engine. "Before, SimCity used to be like paint programs with sprites, but now we are taking all the things that make a city tick and embedding them inside the buildings and on the roads," says Quigley.
The heart is just a pump, and the moon is made of cheese Do you need your brain? According to the Ancient Egyptians, you don’t. For them, it was just there to provide the stuff that runs out of your nose. When the time came to prepare a body for the most important journey it would ever make — the one to the next life — they scooped the brain out through the nostrils and threw it away. The heart, on the other hand, was a different matter.
Draw A Creative Mind Map for Self Analysis Many personal development experts share about the benefits of using mind maps. My post today takes it one step further with how I have used the concept of mind mapping for self analysis. I also share illustrations from my personal art journal that I created some time ago. I drew them as part of my pre-vision board exercises.
