BBC News - Internet data plan back on political agenda
"264. Simon Attwood
23RD NOVEMBER 2014 - 10:52
There's a darker and more dangerous consequence to the kind of constant nagging fear that we have endured since the creation of 24/7 media. Neural wiring is highly sensitive to negative influence on epigenetics and neuroplasticity. In other words, a state of constant fear causes atrophy to parts of our brain associated with empathy and compassion, at the same time feeding primitive fear structures"

Traveling Lightly Through Life | zen habits
Love this quote: A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. ~Lao Tzu
And I'm obsessed with doing: "Digitize. Digital music, books, and documents are not only easier to transporttheyre also easier to store. Use technology to transform physical possessions into bits and bytes: scan paperwork, convert CDs to MP3s, and buy electronic books instead of paper ones."

BBC News - Young more lonely than the old, UK survey suggests
"the decline of community and a growing focus on work."... "young people we tell us that talking to hundreds of people on social networks is not like having a real relationship and when they are using these sites they are often alone in their bedrooms." ..."Economic changes that disrupt people's work-life balance & family life, & send people 100s of miles for work, can get worse during recession. Openness about being lonely, & vulnerable friends & neighbours, is an important first step." "... too much time communicating with friends & families online when should see them in person." ... "Manhattan in NYC has 50% lone households, more than elsewhere in the US, yet its 'urban village' model sustains social networks - people habitually use alternative meeting places, incl. cafes & public spaces,." ""According to evolutionary psychology, cities could in fact be our perfect environment because of the demands they make on our complex social brains, but only if they are well designed."
