Histórias de quem largou o emprego pra viver do que gosta. | Jardim do Mundo Você teria coragem de arriscar tudo para seguir os seus sonhos?

Muita gente vive muito bem neste estilo de vida, mas outras pessoas não conseguem se adaptar à caixa do mercado, e colocam na balança a estabilidade e a aventura, a grana fixa e a sazonalidade, a promoção de cargos e a liberdade autônoma. O que pesa mais? O projeto Continue curioso é uma web série sobre pessoas que não se adaptaram ao estilo de vida convencional do mercado e largaram tudo em direção ao desconhecido. É arriscado? Jaque Barbosa e Eme Viegas Um som pode revelar muitas coisas. não existe melhor exemplo do que a natureza. seu barulho pode mostrar serenidade como também inquietude. é um lembrete de que não estamos no controle quando confrontados com uma força maior. somos obrigados a escutar um chamado. jaque barbosa e eme viegas estavam dispostos a ouvir.

are our daughters dumbing down? Photo credit: snapshot from Think on Vimeo When one of my fellow Parentables contributors suggested we write about a new book exposing "how women in America are less knowledgeable about current events and our own government than they are about celebrity details," many attempts to steer my daughter away from the rumor rags towards magazines with more coverage of current political and cultural events encouraged me to take the topic. Is it possible there is a book that can help moms everywhere win this crucial adolescent skirmish? I often wonder if it was hard for my two girls growing up with a chemist mom, all logic and no make-up. But Lisa Bloom's amusing anecdotes about her childhood relegate my mothering to the category of cake-walk. Lisa's world view was shaped by her mother, the high-profile feminist attorney Gloria Allred, and her alternative father -- parents who taught her to question even such apparent no-brainers as whether the Dalai Lama or giving to charity are "good".

Four Horsemen – Feature Documentary – Official Version FOUR HORSEMEN is an independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works. As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society. FOUR HORSEMEN is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions. “It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads — economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.” – Total Film

northern korea prison camps Shin Dong-Hyuk ... he says the Holocaust is still going on in North Korea. Photo: AFP North Korea's prison camps are a closed-off world of death, torture and forced labour where babies are born slaves, according to two survivors who liken the horrors of the camps to a Holocaust in progress. "People think the Holocaust is in the past, but it is still very much a reality. It is still going on in North Korea," Shin Dong-Hyuk said through an interpreter on the sidelines of a human rights summit in Geneva. The birth of a baby is a blessed thing in the outside world, but inside the camp, babies are born to be slaves like their parents. Shin himself spent his first 23 years in a prison camp in the secretive country, where he says he was tortured and subjected to forced labour before making a spectacular escape seven years ago - and giving the outside world a rare first-hand account of life inside the camps. Kang Chol-Hwan ... was imprisoned with his family. Advertisement

sexism in music industry Although we’re all aware of the greed and discrimination in the music industry, it’s still alarming to see specific incidents of undeserved fear and heartache based on gender. In the last few days, two awful accounts of bigotry have surfaced in the news, reminding us that sexism in the music world exists on a massive and global scale. The first story, as you may have heard, made headlines on Feb. 1st after a disturbing YouTube video of J-pop star Minami Minegishi of the group AKB48 went viral and sparked controversy. In the video, the 20-year-old pop star –– who had just shaved her head in a state of frenzy prior to recording –– tearfully apologizes for having a boyfriend. That’s right. She explained, “What I have done was such a thoughtless and a lack of self-awareness behavior.” Meanwhile, an all-girl Indian rock band has just disbanded after becoming targets of an online hate campaign and having a fatwa issued against them.

Como o governo pode apoiar os negócios sociais | Mercado de Impacto Há três semanas participei de um dos eventos locais do roadshow promovido pelo Fórum de Inovação de Bihar (BIF), uma iniciativa do governo do estado de Bihar, na Índia, voltado a inovadores sociais em organizações governamentais ou privadas, com ou sem fins lucrativos. O evento aconteceu em Chennai, assim como vem acontecendo em várias cidades do país. A ideia básica é estimular o empreendedorismo social localmente e também atrair inovações que já tiveram seus resultados comprovados em outras regiões do país e que possam ser escaladas a 1 milhão de domicílios deste que é um dos estados mais pobres da Índia. Para isso, utilizarão um capital disponível de US$ 120 milhões e uma rede de contatos e facilidades que inclui organizações como o Banco Mundial. 35 finalistas em 8 áreas temáticas apresentarão seus trabalhos e 24 vencedores terão a oportunidade de convergir suas iniciativas com as demais políticas públicas do estado e escalar seu impacto. E no Brasil? Curtir isso: Relacionado
