Klima, miljø og forurensning - hva vi vet, tror og føler

Kategori: klima

Er klimaendringene menneskskapt eller ikke?
Spiller det egentlig noen rolle? Vi må uansett forholde oss til klimaendringene.
Jeg leste to avisartikler idag 22.12.2016 (China Daily og Aftenposten - se under) om klima.
I hele nordkina har det vært "Red Alert" den siste uka på grunn av forurensninger fra biler, kullkraftverk, bedrifter etc. som i stor grad skyldes fossil forbrenning.
Flere byer i Norge har også hatt "Red Alert", og det er liten tvil om at denne forurensningen er menneskskapt.
I Aftenposten (se under) har Ola Storeng skrevet en artikkel som svar på Carl I. Hagens og Donald Trumps sannhet om klimaendringene.
Jeg har også kopiert en artikkel fra Hegnar.no om foredrag av Stein Bergsmark "Fysiker kler av hele klimapanelet".
Men spiller det noen rolle om klimaendringene er menneskskapt eller ikke - vi må uansett bli kvitt de fossile forurensningene for å ha et bedre liv og en bedre hverdag. Så får vi se hvordan det går med klimaet. Kanskje det hjelper - kanskje ikke.

Politiske utfordringer
Økende antall flyktninger i verden vil påvirke Norge. Norge har ansvar overfor klimaflyktningene siden Norge har store klimagasslipp per innbygger sammenlignet med de landene der klimaforandringene vil ramme hardest.
Øket innvandring av klimaflyktninger vil kunne gi Norge store politiske utfordringer.

Happiness, Right Before Your Eyes (Review of The Happy Show)

Kategori: humør

Within the first five minutes of walking into graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister’s “The Happy Show” at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, I found myself being instructed to drop a quarter into a machine whose destination seemed to be smack in the middle of the sidewalk outside (and conferred no immediate gratification to do so: no gumball, no decoder ring, no stuffed toy to reward the action). On blind faith and curiosity, I did so. I then found myself reading the inner thoughts of the random permanent fixtures on the wall, black marker scribbles wrapped in bubble cartoons. The thermostat by the Exit door said “Hello. Somebody there? … Anybody??” The phone jack near the floor said “I LAY DOWN AND DIED TWO years ago … PLAYING FUNERAL.” I’m still scratching my head over that one.

John Seely Brown on Web 2.0 and the Culture of Learning /School 2.0, Part 6)

"I think that the amazing moment we have right now in time is to kind-of go back and rethink what Dewey really was about. I think we have to reinvent Dewey for the 21st century--finding a way to bring productive inquiry, bring the social basis of learning, bring the cognitive basis of learning all together. And I think now we can actually start to do that in a much more authentic way for kids at almost any age in a way that there's truly authentic things that these kids are doing that are being picked up by other kids and shared and built on and so on and so forth."

skyObesity and smoking may be the most conspicuous causes of illness in this country, but physical factors don't account for everything. Your psychology — namely, your personality and outlook on life — can be just as important to your well-being as exercising and eating right. And especially these days, with the world's economy tumbling toward a depression, it's a good time to prevent yourself from slipping into one too.

Jeg synes at livet burde leves baklengs!

Jeg synes at livet burde leves baklengs! Man skulle starte med å dø og bli ferdig med det.

Så våkner man opp på et pleiehjem og får det bedre og bedre for hver dag.
Man blir så kastet ut fordi man er for frisk til at være der, så kan man gå ned og heve pensjonen.
På din første arbeidsdag får du et gullur.
Så arbeider man i 40 år inntil man er ung nok til å trekke seg tilbake fra arbeidsmarkedet.
Man drikker, fester og har sex og forbereder seg på at ta en utdannelse.
Så er man på grunnskolen, blir et barn igjen, leker, har ingen forpliktelser

- inntil man igjen er en baby...

De siste 9 måneder tilbringes flytende rundt i fredfylt luksus. Der er sentralvarme, roomservice med mer - og til slutt forlater man denne verden i en orgasme.

Perfekt spør du meg.

Yin and Yang

Kategori: balanse

Yin and Yang 

The concept of Yin and Yang is one of the most fundamental and profound theories of Feng Shui. It is the Chinese perspective of balance and continual change. Many Feng Shui practitioners claim they have a deep understanding of this concept, yet they cannot even represent the image correctly. In fact, this is a good indicator of the depth of knowledge a “master” possesses. Many times these practitioners call themselves masters, yet their printed materials contain an incorrect Tai-ji (The name for the Yin and Yang circle) representation. How can one call themselves a master of Feng Shui and not even understand the basics of this deep and extremely significant diagram? Yin and Yang is a foundation theory for Feng Shui that supports many other theories including the Five Elements theory and the Environment. Hopefully by reading this, you will be better informed on what Yin/Yang theory is in Feng Shui.

The Body in Balance: Chinese Historian Diagnoses the Yin and Yang of Health and Illness

Kategori: balanse

More information - see research at Penn 

Unlike Western views of anatomy, traditional Chinese medicine does not look at the body as a biomedical machine whose broken parts need to be located and then repaired or replaced to restore health. Instead, he says, the Chinese have long regarded the whole person as an integral part of the larger cosmos. Classical medical texts talk about healing as restoring an ecology of physiological, emotional, and moral balance in unity with social relations and the natural cycles of heaven and earth. "It's a language of processes rather than structures and tissues and organs."

The five element theory, also called the five-phase theory

Kategori: balanse

The five element theory, also called the five-phase theory, holds that everything in the universe, including our health, is governed by five natural elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. This theory underscores the Chinese belief that human beings, both physically and mentally, are intertwined with nature. Although it is difficult for Westerners to relate this philosophy to the Western approach to medicine, it is fundamental to the understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Eight Guiding Principles

Kategori: balanse

In addition to the theory of the five elements, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioners employ the Eight Guiding Principles to analyze and differentiate the energetic imbalances in the body or the nature of a patient’s condition. The eight guiding principles actually consist of four polar opposites: yin/yang, cold/heat, deficiency (xu)/excess (shi), and interior/exterior.

Innovation - business model.

Når den gode teknologien taper
Artikkel av Espen Andersen i Aftenposten lørdag 7. januar 2006

Innovation Basics
Clayton Christensen introduced the principles of disruptive innovation in his book, The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail. The book helped managers understand how an organization that does everything right—listens to customers, keeps a close eye on the competitors, and invests heavily in technological advancements—may get blindsided by disruptive innovations. These are new products, services, or business models that initially target small, seemingly unprofitable customer segments, but eventually evolve to take over the marketplace
