#EmotionalIIntellicence is Tied to #Creativity

EIEmotional intelligence is what makes the world go-round. If you lack it, you’re probably don’t know. Or you’re like me – lacking it and totally aware of it. This is why I forewarn people I’m socially awkward. How effectively we manage ourselves and our social connections is the definition of emotional intelligence, in a nutshell.  Self-awareness and interaction with others is essential for growing in life, professionally and personally. If you desire to flourish in creativity, you have to polish your skills in emotional intelligence, says Psychology TodayIf you’re like me and wondering what can you do to enhance your emotional intelligence, as luck would have it – Inc. has recently published a guide to help us broaden our EI and creative horizons.

#PositiveThinking Improves #Health

ThinkingThis headline is so last week but the power of positive thinking and its impact on your life is timeless. More than ever, I can use this little gem of advice for life. Wherever you are in the timeline of stressful events, take from this what you may and store some in the back of your mind for a rainy day. The powerful thought of the day is just believing that you are healthy. How much does this thought (true or not) cuts your risk of early death? 71%, says a study. This study found that being mindful about your health is a great way to ‘workout’ without breaking a sweat, literally. Here are some hacks on how to trick yourself into being healthy. As the aforementioned study points-out, you’re not hacking yourself at all – you’re helping!

Don’t Fear #AI – Embrace It!

SpidermanAlthough many people are hesitant on the horizon of artificial intelligence permeating our organic world, China sees it as an opportunity for growth in a big way. When you take emotions out of the equation, the real applicable solutions arrive. This is the short answer as to why artificial intelligence may be the way in the future. It’s more than Siri and self-driving cars. Don’t listen to the founder of Tesla’s prediction on the dark side of AI, calling it a fundamental risk to human civilization. Much like the influence of a bad apple in main stream or a disgruntled anti-virus programmer going rogue – he feels the same could happen in the event of an AI machine with a ghost in it. This was the overtone of the address Musk made to the National Governors Association. Like the warning given to Spider-Man, “with great power comes great responsibility.” Musk warning that we need to keep a close watch on the evolution of it. Hopefully that’s all we can do to keep control in this man versus machine trajectory in life.

Drinking #DietSoda With a #Burger Matters

BurgerWhen you’re going to indulge in that burger, you may consider keeping the soda you drink with it sugar-free. A study has found that when you consume a high-fat protein meal, pairing it with a sugary beverage activates your body’s fat storing machine. The point of this study proves to us that packing-on more sugar (pure energy) to an already fatty meal is nothing but more work for the body when it comes to burning the calories. When all the calories consumes are not burned, fat is stored. The moral of the story? Next time you crave a drive-through fix, make it a diet soda. It’s not going to help you drop the lbs you’ve been nursing but it does give you an edge to combat further fat gains.

Here’s Why #Dogs Are #Friendly

DogsNo surprise, a study has found that dogs are more sociable than wolves. It turns-out that this social nature is linked to genetic variants found in dogs that wolves do not possess. Tens of thousands of years ago, dogs were chosen to be domesticated, rather than wolves. So it seems the genetic predisposition as “house pets” was there all along for dogs. Dogs are social creatures and they are like wolves, in that regard. However wolves and dogs differ in their problem-solving. Wolves are stronger problem solvers, whereas dogs have become more lackadaisical when it comes to survival. In fact, they were the scoundrels who crept into sites and stole food from the people. Nobody wants to buddy-up with savages like that anyway. Maybe that’s why dogs have evolved as man’s best friend, no wolves.

#Dirt is Good for #Kids #Immunity

KidEatingDirtAt the risk of seeming blasphemous and illiterate, have you ever heard the saying “God made dirt so dirt don’t hurt”? Moving away from the theological POV for agnostics and we’ve got biological support for the notion. Studies say that we require a certain amount of exposure to germs and antigens so that we can fully develop a robust immune system. Here’s an interesting tidbit for parents of infants – when your baby’s pacifier hits the floor, lick it! Parents saliva does a better job of building their baby’s immune system than water. If you’re an adult with a full-blow immune system but still looking for a boost in immunity when around the little carrier monkeys, try adding Emergen C to your routine. If the free offer isn’t going to cut it for your needs, shop Amazon till your heart’s content.

The Inequity of #Dementia Among #Races

DementiaA study has found that people of African-American descent are more prone than white people to developing dementia. Researchers believe this is due to poverty, disadvantages, and stressful events in life. African-Americans are twice as likely to develop dementia more so than white people and a sliver of it can be due to their likelihood to have high blood pressure and diabetes. Both these conditions are known to exacerbate cognitive decline. However little or big it may be, it’s empowering to think that the root cause of stress for everybody is the basis of expectations. Be the best version of yourself and society can eat worms if it has a problem with it. You can control your stress thermostat This isn’t the be-all/end-all answer to reducing stress but WebMD seems to tout these techniques heavily. Everybody can use a little less stress in their life. Don’t you agree?

#Google Plans to #Sterilize Millions

debugvanClickbait. This story sounds nefarious but it’s actually an exciting thing for mosquito population control. Verily,, the life science arm of Google (Alphabet) plans to release millions of male mosquitoes into the world in Fresno, California. It’s being done with vans labeled “Debug Fresno”. No ice cream or puppies, here. These vans do have screened windows – so it’s not the ultra creepy window-less van approach. Thanks for the heads-up, Google. The name of this roll out is “Project Debug”. These male mosquitoes have been infected with a bacteria that renders female eggs unable to produce more mosquitoes. In a very intentional sense, this is population control for mosquitoes that carry disease such as Zika, West Nile, and other life-altering conditions. Is this going to make things more uncomfortable for people prone to mosquito bites? Absolutely not. Male mosquitoes are not the biters – females are. Looks like Google is making another contribution to society in a non-virtual way. If you don’t already, you need to grab yourself a few shares.

This #MacandCheese Contains #Plastic

MacandCheeseFor those of you who love quick mac and cheese when you’re hankering for comfort food, brace yourself. Toxic industrial chemicals that can alter hormones were found in the mac and cheese powders tested. Of course, your homemade recipe doesn’t contain these toxic powders said to shift normal biological functioning. These chemicals have been used since the 50s to soften plastics. Why on earth are they found in mac and cheese powders? One spokesperson said that the FDA does not allow plastics to be added to food unless there’s certainty it’s not harmful. Good deflection, guy. If you’re truly that concerned that your mac and cheese habit threatens the well-being of your temple, try this recipe on for size. It’s said to be the BEST mac and cheese ever — especially since it doesn’t contain any plasticiserz.

#DimplePiercing Leads to #Circumcision #PSA

DimpleBabyThis was last weeks ‘news’ but it’s still in the back of my mind. Clickbate is one thing to garnish views on social media platforms. Smoke and mirrors is an old school approach used, too. After posting a picture of her baby’s dimple piercing, this mother received many responses. One response included a death threat for her picture while another response said they’d be calling child protective services. At the tail-end of this may-lay *mayday, the proud mother made a comparison to circumcision and claimed what she chooses to do with her child until the age of 18) is her decision. Good listener. I can see this will lead to great communication between the two of you in years to come. IMHO the mother could’ve ignored the threats since it was a nonissue. But making the statement of I do what I want ”till she’s 18″ makes it seem like a desperate reaction from South Park.
