The possible applications are innumerable: limitless retention and storage capacity and the key to discovering the origins of life on our planet. Research into water is just beginning. http://tv.lovenature.com/

Daniel Reisel studies the brains of criminal psychopaths (and mice). And he asks a big question: Instead of warehousing these criminals, shouldn't we be using what we know about the brain to help them rehabilitate? Put another way: If the brain can grow new neural pathways after an injury ... could we help the brain re-grow morality?

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity.Read more
As I think about the evolution of coaching, I see an evolution of consciousness as well. It has to happen. Sport actually pushes the evolution of consciousness in a curious way. Everything is whipped-up in sport, faster in every way. The athletic environment is a competitive, problem-solving, fast-moving, decision-making environment that mirrors daily life – only faster. And consciousness underlies all of it. We are consciousness taking form and reflecting back on our own consciousness. Reflecting back not only on who we are but what we are at our deepest level. And what we are is consciousness – a consciousness that is not just limited to us as individuals, but a consciousness that is unlimited and universal, a consciousness that interconnects us all, is us all, is the universe, and we are all of it.Read more

The world today is in crisis. Everybody knows that. But what is driving this crisis? It's a story, a story that is destroying the world. It's a story about our relationship to the world and to other humans, but we take this story for granted. We don't even see it as a story but rather as a self-evident truth about our existence.
Climate change, political corruption, corporate power, war, racism, sexism, environmental destruction - these are all symptoms of the cultural story we are enacting. To address the symptoms, we must go to the root, and that means we need a new story about our existence. We need a new story to belong to.
They say New Year's is for setting goals and making resolutions. So, go ahead. Make your Bucket List. Follow your dreams. Create a Vision Board. Success is yours in the near future. The best is yet to come. Someday. This year. Maybe. You can start next Monday – when pigs fly. Or, with the New Moon. Since you’re reading this, TODAY must be your lucky day. You mustn’t forget to check the Chinese Calendar. Wait until the time is right, right? But, there is no right or wrong time. So, all is well. It’s never too late to change. There is still time. There’s no better time than the present (when the stars are aligned). Just don’t get behind the eight ball, or you’ll have to chase that dream farther and faster than ever. And, you will have to wait for the world to change. No big deal. Nobody said it was going to be easy.
Are you confused yet? When it comes to power and success in 2016, I invite you to re-think everything. Everything!Read more
