How to Become a Hyper-Learner

STAYING relevant in this Digital Age requires that we learn, unlearn, and relearn as a way of being. Ed Hess calls it Hyper-Learning. How well we think, learn, and engage in the human tasks of the future depends on how well we manage and optimize what’s going on with our minds, brains, and bodies. Humankind has always faced these challenges but what is different today is the intensity—the timeframe we have available to learn, unlearn, and relearn. Our egos make us think we know more than we do ...

Dispatch 55: Someone missing a Bullet-riddled Car?

22 December 2020 Portland, Oregon A Yon-Genre mind dump without edit I've flown in from D.C. and have been working back in Oregon. Creating source-network, sensing atmospherics, hanging out with ANTIFA. I entered to the Red House occupied zone, sat by ANTIFA campfire, and got coffee from their kitchen. Many seem like functional homeless or drug-impaired. They were friendly but highly suspicious. Meanwhile, locals have been helping to understand the situation. Yesterday, you may hav...

Kind by nature: Have faith in humanity

Optimism is what runs the world, and cynicism only serves as an excuse for the lazy. Evil is not inherent to our nature. We have achieved so much because we are friendly and decent. The radical thinker Rutger Bregman paints a new, more beautiful portrait of humanity.Try standing in front of the mirror and remember the worst things ever done – by you personally, and by Homo sapiens as a whole. And smile, because history shows that we are doing much better than you think. This subversive idea belo...

Which means it’s time to bust out the scarves and jackets, pack every room in your home full of gourds, become passionate about soups to an almost concerning degree, and seethe with rage about leaf blowers.

Why We Should Be More Optimistic About Human Nature

In the novel Lord of the Flies, a group of young boys are shipwrecked on an island and eventually turn savagely against each other. The book is a cautionary tale about humanity’s underlying cruelty and the need for civilization to tame our darker impulses—a message that resonates with many people today. But that’s not what happened to a real-life group of shipwrecked kids in 1965. Unlike the fictional Lord of the Flies characters, they developed a game plan for survival that was cooperative, fu...

4 ridiculously easy ways you can be more eco-friendly

When it comes to saving the planet, the question of where to start can be overwhelming. And while larger, governmental change is urgently needed, we can all individually contribute to being  part of “the solution” rather than “the pollution.” Savvy consumerism is no longer reserved for staunch eco-warriors, and it’s easier than ever to make “green” choices. There are plenty of examples: Veja creates fashionable sneakers from recycled plastic bottles, organic cotton, or wild rubber from the Brazi...

Whicker: Will SoFi Stadium be The Last Manse in sports?

The coronavirus has derailed our schools, shuttered our businesses, complicated our friendships, even prevented us from honoring our dead. Along the way it has killed nearly 140,000 Americans. Why should a stadium be immune? SoFi Stadium, the most ambitious stadium project since the Superdome, is still deemed “essential,” even though the Los Angeles Times reported that 15 more SoFi workers have tested positive in the past two weeks. That raised the infection total to 48. That’s not the stuff of ...

When Nashville’s leading independent brand communications agency was awarded a promotional opportunity through the American Advertising Federation, they arrived at a concept and execution that was powerfully appropriate for these uncertain times, albeit unorthodox. Instead of creating an ad – the full-service firm took the opportunity to create an industry-wide brief on something far larger: the human experience. The worldwide creative brief, penned for the “client” Humankind, de...

Best museums in Africa

For black people across the diaspora, coming to Africa can be much more than a vacation. Many see it as a pilgrimage, one of returning to the home of their ancestors, so the normal trappings of the average holiday may not be enough for their journey. Visitors to the African continent are frequently there to experience the arts, letters, and history in a way that may not be required of other vacations. Museums of all stripes act as collectors and aggregators of heritage, and on the African con...

Tokyo 2020 Olympics Rescheduled for Late Summer 2021

The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are just one of the many major events being delayed in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak across the world.

Reading BIG, Reading small . . .

"I think that's the longest I've seen you take to read a book," said John the other day.  I've been pecking away at this weighty (in both senses of the word) tome for weeks now. The ideas are so big that it works best for me to read a bit, usually after breakfast,  and have the rest of the day to digest what I've read before moving on to the next bite. Well, what would you expect from a book subtitled A Brief History of Humankind?  There's a lot of ground to cover--a hund...
