Minbari Mondays, Knives, and, Empathy in The B5 Triangle

This this week, there is no report from Ranger Mayann.  The Great Machine on Epsilon 3 must have a problem, Houston…   So, my very short review for this week is that empathy is the most important means of communication between members of other species, and between ourselves, too!  In the end, both Londo’s […]Continue reading “Minbari Mondays, Knives, and, Empathy in The B5 Triangle”

Turkish Tuesdays, Arts/Media and Public Policy, and how Time Banks can help!

When I lived in Izmir, a Turkish TV spot shocked me: it showed an image of an elderly Black man, evidently homeless, sleeping in a stairwell directly beneath a sign that pointed up the stairs and read “White House” followed by the caption “Yorum Yok” or “No Comment.” This was about the same time thatContinue reading “Turkish Tuesdays, Arts/Media and Public Policy, and how Time Banks can help!”

Mindful Mondays, Einstein, and NVC via libraries

Libraries are a vital part of any democracy, and of Phase I of the Four Freedoms movement.  I got a book, which I did not write down more than my thoughts, unfortunately, in France I think, from a library, and noted on teaching that: – Interesting, that Einstein grew up around clock parts and railwayContinue reading “Mindful Mondays, Einstein, and NVC via libraries”

Great Greek Wednesdays, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual self-care, and Health Care For All

I think most will agree that most of us do not take proper care to care for ourselves on each of the four levels that I can think of: emotionally, mentally or intellectually, physically and spiritually. But that makes me stop and think: what on earth or in heaven above exactly is spiritual health? ComeContinue reading “Great Greek Wednesdays, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual self-care, and Health Care For All”

Moody Mondays and Adulting ed.: applying creative logic to old reflexes to prevent new mistakes

Part of ongoing self-education, not hair-splittingly legal or finance related, but part of the responsibility for Adult continuing self-education, nonetheless, is that of self-reflection (is this continuing adult education, or self-health care, or both?): — – Linked to solutions for the questions raised in an earlier post on Solving Childhood Abuse Problems via Sharing aContinue reading “Moody Mondays and Adulting ed.: applying creative logic to old reflexes to prevent new mistakes”

Moody Mondays and Adulting ed. via my Theoretical Framework for Shared Monetary Governance

If we stretch the mandate of ongoing free legal and financial education (now aka Adulting Ed.) for all as part of Phase I of the Four Freedoms Movement, then academic work in this area is useful, right? My first article on Shared Monetary Governance (SMG) based on my MPhil/PhD thesis. Shira “Holocene Era” Dest, publishedContinue reading “Moody Mondays and Adulting ed. via my Theoretical Framework for Shared Monetary Governance”

Turkish Tuesday and (mental) Health Care

I was very surprised, when I lived in Izmir (aka Smyrna), to see how supportive Turkish women are of one another, even in cases that I found very surprising. — A coworker of ours, a young woman, was apparently rather heavily in debt, as she came crying into the office I shared with two colleagues,Continue reading “Turkish Tuesday and (mental) Health Care”

Moody Mondays, calendar reform, and Adulting ed

Calendars, culture, and taking responsibility for our own continued learning as adults in a modern democracy (well, republic, actually), are all part of Adulting Education. Understanding how our calendar shapes our ways of thinking is a first step, hopefully, toward accepting the use of the Holocene Calendar as one more tool in our toolbox ofContinue reading “Moody Mondays, calendar reform, and Adulting ed”

Sacred Study Saturdays and government as a New American might see it

As a US citizen who has sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution not once but twice, and given that all naturalized US citizens also swear this oath, for me, the Founding Documents (the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States of America) are the sacred documents of the United States government,Continue reading “Sacred Study Saturdays and government as a New American might see it”

Moody Mondays, and Early Childhood Education as Health Care for the Entire World

This early childhood ed. org. in DC has been, and is still, doing what Joseph Biden proposes to do on a larger scale in the US, which ought to have been done a long time ago, in THIS galaxy: They needed cribs back in 2012, but now you can donate online: – I had theContinue reading “Moody Mondays, and Early Childhood Education as Health Care for the Entire World”
