Video I am Watching
I love critical thinking! I love absorbing content that flies in the face of “the typical” or “the norm”. This week I want to introduce you to Ben Goldacre and his TED Talk Battling Bad Science. Coming out of this world pandemic, I think this talk is even more powerful. Here’s the description: “Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they’re right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry.” Lastly, Dr. Goldacre’s Twitter feed [@bengoldacre] is full of amazing content especially related to the recent pandemic.
Quotes I am Pondering
Never lick a steak knife.
~ Dave Barry, American author and humor columnist
It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him with the words, “And this, too, shall pass away.” How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!
~ President Abraham Lincoln
Let there be more joy and laughter in your living.
~ Eileen Caddy, spiritual teacher and new age author
