Video: The Power of Outrospection – Empathy

I have been an advocate of empathy the moment my father once told me to look up the definition of the word for myself in the dictionary. Ever since, I have read about and researched the meaning of empathy, and set aside the encountered examples of its application and “practice.” I have become more compassionate in attempting to understand the people around me, and mostly those who are different than me in terms of ideology, ethnic background and age.  This video explains the definition of empathy and the different ways to be empathetic, a key variable towards a better, more tolerant and less judgmental society.  It really is the only way forward to avoid conflict and war. Must watch!

Video: Lawrence Krauss on Physics

Some topics in science, like quantum mechanics and evolution, are overwhelmingly confusing. I feel the majority of people do not take the time to understand science because of this particular reason. People confuse this confusion between sadness and frustration when instead it should be excitement and adventure. Richard Dawkins explains ” We evolved to avoid tigers in the wild, we didn’t evolve to do quantum physics.” Physics is a very exciting topic to me. I am awestruck with its principles, always a humbling experience and it is a very powerful tool to understanding the world around us. I think Lawrence Krauss is an excellent teacher of modern science. I recommend taking the time out of your busy schedule to understand this little bit of science. Enjoy!
