Kids are Born Creative Geniuses Until the Education System Destroys Imagination + video

OUR GREATER DESTINY

“Find the 5-year-old,” in yourself!”

A landmark study shows how most people are born brilliant and lose their abilities to think like a genius over time in the educational system.

Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman were commissioned by NASA to help the space agency identify and develop creative talent. The two were tasked to research school children in an attempt to identify creative individuals from which the agency could pick to help with their many products. In a recent TED talk, Land described his team’s surprising findings on the education system which are nothing short of shocking.

It seems American schoolchildren lose their ability to think creatively over time. As students enter their educational journey, they retain most of their abilities to think creatively. In other words, children are born with creative genius. Employing a longitudinal study model, Land and Jarman studied 1,600 children at ages…

Berkeley Doctor Claims That People Die From Chemotherapy, Not Cancer – Awareness Act

AGR Daily 60 Second News Bites

A former professor of medical physics and physiology at the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Hardin B. Jones studied the life expectancy of cancer patients for more than 25 years. Then, eventually, he came to the conclusion that despite popular belief, chemotherapy does not work.

He found that the majority of people who were treated with chemotherapy died a horrible death. He has made it known publicly that this news is deliberately kept a secret by the cancer industry because billions of dollars are put into this scheme.

“People who refused chemotherapy treatment live on average 12 and a half years longer than people who are undergoing chemotherapy,” said Dr. Jones in his study, which was published in the New York Academy of Science.

“People who accepted chemotherapy die within three years of diagnosis, a large number die after a few weeks.”

My $500 house in Detroit — and the neighbors who helped me – TED video

My $500 house in Detroit — and the neighbors who helped me rebuild it – Drew Philp

In 2009, journalist and screenwriter Drew Philp bought a ruined house in Detroit for $500. In the years that followed, as he gutted the interior and removed the heaps of garbage crowding the rooms, he didn’t just learn how to repair a house — he learned how to build a community.

In a tribute to the city he loves, Philp tells us about “radical neighborliness” and makes the case that we have “the power to create the world anew together and to do it ourselves when our governments refuse.”   TEDNYC | November 2017  …… PLAY VIDEO
