Welcome, dear visitor!
We hope your search was successful. Although, maybe you have already made sure that it is very difficult to find reliable and reliable information on the Internet? Have you also made sure that this huge ocean, as well as the whole world around us, is full of a lot of false historical facts, erroneous scientific theories and idle conjectures of the so-called "teachers"?
Why are our children so bored at school, cannot wait, get easily frustrated and have no real friends?
I am an occupational therapist with 10 years of experience working with children, parents, and teachers. In my practice, I have seen and continue to see a decline in kids’ social, emotional, and academic functioning, as well as a sharp increase in learning disabilities and other diagnoses.
Today’s children come to school emotionally unavailable for learning, and there are many factors in our modern lifestyle that contribute to this. As we know, the brain is malleable. Through environment, we can make the brain “stronger” or make it “weaker”. I truly believe that, despite all our greatest intentions, we unfortunately remold our children’s brains in the wrong direction.
For years, normality has been stretched nearly to its breaking point, a rope pulled tighter and tighter, waiting for a nip of the black swan’s beak to snap it in two. Now that the rope has snapped, do we tie its ends back together, or shall we undo its dangling braids still further, to see what we might weave from them?
Covid-19 is showing us that when humanity is united in common cause, phenomenally rapid change is possible. None of the world’s problems are technically difficult to solve; they originate in human disagreement. In coherency, humanity’s creative powers are boundless. A few months ago, a proposal to halt commercial air travel would have seemed preposterous. Likewise for the radical changes we are making in our social behavior, economy, and the role of government in our lives. Covid demonstrates the power of our collective will when we agree on what is important. What else might we achieve, in coherency? What do we want to achieve, and what world shall we create? That is always the next question when anyone awakens to their power.
Как стал «неудобен» знаменитый писатель Д. Толкин
Американский писатель-фантаст Энди Дункан дал интервью популярному ежемесячному журналу Wired Magazine. Обладатель нескольких престижных литературных премий, он поделился с собеседниками из Wired идеями, которые хотел бы донести тем или иным своим произведением. Акцент в интервью был сделан на опубликованном еще в 2001 году рассказе «Сенатор Бильбо» – рассуждениях на тему творчества Джона Толкина.
«Трудно не обратить внимания на постоянно повторяющийся толкиновский посыл о том, что некоторые расы или народы – хуже других», – заявил Энди Дункан.
Тех, кто считает орков плохими, Дункан называет «предвзятыми идиотами». И призывает представить на месте толкиновских героев людей из нашего мира, отмечая, что судьба такой расы должна была бы вызвать сожаление.
On October 23, 2007, some top level officials of the US government appealed to me for help in stemming the raging fires devastating California.
The situation was absolutely out of control. In order to combat the natural disaster they had mustered all their available technical equipment, as well as the National Guard—with almost zero results. Natural calamities of this magnitude cannot be controlled even by such technically developed and affluent countries as the USA.
And this is yet another demonstration that the technocratic path of development is not a panacea for everything, especially where natural disasters are concerned. It is possible to quench small fires with the help of all that technical equipment; but if tens of thousands of acres of forest, undergrowth, bushes and prairies flare up simultaneously, the use of even the best technical resources is futile.
