May 2017 MM

I totally forgot to add this last time. It is the really interesting discovery by a male worker who mistakenly found out why his female colleague took longer to work than he did. A quick read.

Love the idea of trapping a self-driving car using magic (or actually just science!!)

Childhood trauma leads to lifelong chronic illness - this is something that has been known for a long time but really doesn't seem to be affecting the way that we deal with chronic illnesses. There needs to be a shift in how we view physical issues and their link to our emotions and psychological state. If we truly understood this link surely we would treat each other differently and surely we would treat our children differently. For example, we would maybe learn about the brain's of our children from babies to teenagers and beyond: we would know that the 'naughty' step does not work for under 3s or that teenagers' internal clock shifts so given the chance they don't sleep before the small hours of the night.  These are just two examples but there are loads more and maybe if we learnt and passed on more of this information maybe we would then work with the growing physiology of our children rather than against it.

The world's first mall for recycled goods - this is such a great idea. There should be things like this all over the world and I am glad to say that in York there are Repair Cafes springing up

A woman who is amazing with her feet!!

How I became a localist

Very interesting TED talk by Tim Ferris about Stoicism and defining your fears rather than your goals. It includes the quote "We suffer more often in imagination than in reality" Seneca
