Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi | Posted 07.15.2016 | World

In our own lifetimes, in conflicts unfolding even today, atrocities have been planned and executed, leaving behind victims of widespread or systematic crimes. Societies across the globe have been deeply scarred and divided by crimes such as attacks on civilians, murder, using child soldiers and rape as a tool of war. Violence in one place inevitably causes instability in others. For some, this may seem a distant if disturbing fact, but for hundreds of thousands of others, it is their only reality.

Collaboration vs. Cooperation. There Is a Difference.

Lynn Power | Posted 06.06.2016 | Business
Lynn Power

We're complex beings, and there is always more to learn. Caring is more important than "knowing." Are we interested, receptive, curious? The element of surprise can fuel a sense of newness and add excitement when we're open to it.

After getting myself calm, I could see his threat for what it was -- just a threat -- and an indicator that he was stuck in his emotional brain. He was not rational, but, he hadn't spiraled into a full-blown meltdown, either.
