Don’t ask where I’m from, ask where I’m a local – Taiye Selasi – TED video

Taiye SelasiFilmed October 2014 at TEDGlobal 2014

When someone asks you where you’re from … do you sometimes not know how to answer?

Writer Taiye Selasi speaks on behalf of “multi-local” people, who feel at home in the town where they grew up, the city they live now and maybe another place or two. “How can I come from a country?” she asks. “How can a human being come from a concept?”   [see video link below] Continue reading

Pope Francis, leader of the Roman Catholic Church headquartered in Vatican City, is the latest celebrity to hit the shores of America. When he arrived at Joint Base Andrews on September 22, President Obama received him with the honors due a Head of State. After his reception at the White House in Washington D.C. and engagements in New York City, the pope headed for Philadelphia on Saturday morning and will fly out on Sunday evening for Rome. For his seventy-eight years, he sure has a lot of stamina.

The Church’s first Latin American pope has brought much needed fresh air to an institution beset by internal political strife, sex abuse scandal, and rising secularism. Since taking over the leadership position, Pope Francis has called on all Catholics to focus on Jesus’…

Pope Francis at US Congress

Pope Francis addresses US Congress

By Anthony L Hall

Americans are rolling out the red carpet for Pope Francis in ways never seen before. The unprecedented pomp and ceremony began with both President Obama and Vice President Biden leading a delegation to greet him at the airport on Tuesday, when he set foot on US soil for the first time in his life.

The irony, of course, is that Francis is probably the only world leader who would prefer less pomp and ceremony among high-ranking officials, and more meet and greet among ordinary folks.

    conclusion that one useless man
    is a shame, two is a law firm,
    and three or more is a congress.

    you are uninformed, if you do
    read the newspaper you are
    misinformed. — Mark Twain

I’m Returning to Single-Tasking : zen habits – By Leo Babauta

I’m Returning to Single-Tasking – Zen Habits – By Leo Babauta

I have a confession to make: despite writing books on the subject, along with numerous posts, I haven’t been single-tasking lately.  I’ve returned to multitasking and distraction.

I’d like to blame my smart phone (I long for the days of my sweet dumb phone), but in all honesty I constantly switch browser tabs too. I’ve been pulled by the allure of so many interesting things to read on the Internet, email, messaging my family, always something to check or read or respond to.

As of today, I’m returning to single-tasking.

So here are the rules I’m going to try to follow:    Continue reading
