In order to be able to see a relationship between various ideas and information, we use mind mapping. This includes gathering thoughts, coming up with new ideas, project planning, and more to solve problems or have novel ideas. Today I compiled thea list of 15 mind-mapping tech tools that will help every creative mind be even more creative. If you like one particular tool I check out sites like Techradar, PCmag, Techriggs and CNET that have many insightful user reviews to get more information. 1.
“Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play. “
Wise words from Philip Pullman, who received the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2005: Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play. If you don’t give a child food, the damage quickly becomes visible. If you don’t let a child have fresh air and play, the damage is also visible, but not so quickly. If you don’t give a child love, the damage might not be seen for some years, but it’s permanent. But if you don’t give a child art and stories and poems and music, the damage is not so easy to see.
Moguls Rent South Dakota Addresses to Shelter Wealth Forever
Among the nation’s billionaires, one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate right now is a quiet storefront in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. A branch of Chicago’s Pritzker family rents space here, down the hall from the Minnesota clan that controls the Radisson hotel chain, and other rooms held by Miami and Hong Kong money. Don’t look for any heiresses in this former five-and-dime. Most days, the small offices that represent these families are shut. Even empty, they provide their owners with an important asset: a South Dakota address for their trust funds. In the past four years, the amount of money administered by South Dakota trust companies like these has tripled to $121 billion, almost all of it from out of state.

tinkering schools for kids and adults
Gever Tully started a Tinkering School for kids, an exploratory curriculum designed to teach kids how to build the things they think of. By exploratory he means setting kids loose in a shop full of tools and materials (with supervision) and encouragement to “fool around”. In his wonderful TED talk, Tully describes the “deep internal realization” kids have from the experience, which happen to be the same ones you get (at any age) from improvising: “that you can figure things out as you fool around”… …nothing turns out as planned – ever… …all projects go awry… …success is in the doing (failures are celebrated and analyzed; problems become puzzles)…” As I watched Tulley’s talk, I thought: I want to go there!
How many of your health supplements are actually snake oil?
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. Calcium (Promising) needs Vit D (Strong) in order to work. Probably a lot of these are not based on combination but stand alone benefits. As someone who has a disease with nutrient absorption issues, taking extra vitamins is about the best I can do because I can't shove enough food through my system to get the nutrients out. I agree some of the more minor vit/minerals are suspect.

The Artist as Prophet
Mr. Fish / Truthdig The Israeli writer and dissident Uri Avnery asked an Egyptian general how the Egyptians managed to surprise the Israelis when they launched the October 1973 war. The general answered: “Instead of reading the intelligence reports, you should have read our poets.” The deep malaise, rage and feelings of betrayal that have enveloped American society are rarely captured and almost never are explained coherently by the press. To grasp the savage economic and emotional cost of deindustrialization, the destruction of our democratic institutions, the dark undercurrent of nihilistic violence that sees us beset with mass shootings, the attraction of opioids, the rise of the militarized state and the concentration of national wealth in a tiny cabal of corrupt bankers and corporations, it is necessary to turn to a handful of poets, writers and other artists.
Flowchart: How not to design a "woman’s" tech product
The poorly thought-out tech product for women hardly needs an introduction. Rare is the week that goes by without a company (or a Kickstarter) deciding that there just aren’t enough products for women amid the macho-dominated technology landscape and rolling out a new pink monstrosity. It's probably unfair to say that many of the most offensive products targeted at women cropped up because someone’s wife, girlfriend, or mom casually complained once that her smartphone wouldn’t do what she wanted, and suddenly she needed a solution tailored to her feminine ways—but it’s easy to envision that backstory for many of them. Products that target women tend to fall into three basic problem categories through flaws of logic and, in some cases, morality. Problem 1: Looks like a “woman’s product” The simplest tactic used to target women is giving the product a stereotypically feminine design—pink, purple, sparkly, curvy, and so on.
Realistic Lateral Thinking Puzzles
Lateral Thinking Puzzles, unlike most puzzles, are inexact. In a sense, they are a hybrid between puzzles and storytelling. In each puzzle, some clues to a scenario are given, but the clues don't tell the full story.
