"In Praise of Daria" 20 Years Later




 POP CULTURE & CREATIVITY
"In Praise of Daria" 
20 Years Later
BY AMY PLITT VIA ROLLING STONE

How 'Daria' is still influencing the pop-culture landscape 20 years after the show's debut; Looking back at the importance, and influence, of MTV's coolest teen-girl misanthrope... Two decades later, the series remains a cherished touchstone of the decade – one whose influence can still be felt across the pop-culture landscape of today.


This year marks 20 years since the debut of Daria, the MTV series about a bespectacled, combat boot-wearing misfit whose defining trait was, on the surface, a deep disdain for those around her. In the years since viewers were first introduced to Daria Morgendorffer, she's become a heroine of sorts for many who saw (or still see) themselves as outsiders – particularly women – for whom mainstream depictions of non-traditional characters were, at the time, few and far between. (Cher from Clueless and the Spice Girls weren't exactly relatable if you were a weird girl in the 1990s.  READ THIS FULL ARTICLE VIA ROLLING STONE...

"Solar Chimney" The Crazy Skyscraper




 SUSTAINABILITY & CREATIVITY
The Crazy Skyscraper
BY ADELE PETERS VIA  FASTCOMPANY

This Crazy Skyscraper Is A Solar Power Plant And Small City All In One Would you live in a solar chimney? Inside a new conceptual building, there’s room for the entire population of a city the size of Cleveland–and the building can generate power for all of them.

 The design is a solar chimney, an enormous tower that sits in the middle of an equally huge solar collector. As the sun warms the collector during the day, the air underneath it becomes hotter than the air outside, and is naturally drawn up through the tower. Along the way, the moving air spins turbines that generate electricity. Unlike typical solar panels, the system can keep working through the night. READ FULL ARTICLE VIA FASCOMPANY...

  NATURE & CREATIVITY
LET'S STOP DEVOURING OUR PLANET, WE ARE PART OF IT

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” —David Attenborough

 
 Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

 "El Arte surreal de Flora Borsi"
Un viaje por la mente, belleza y oscuridad

Sueños atmosféricos que juegan, emocionan y trasforman “Su  arte transforma, emociona y enriquece la  realidad llevándonos poéticamente hacia nuevas formas surrealistas”



Flora Borsi  es una artista visual  Húngara que a través de su representación artística nos conduce al surrealismo, distorsionando nuestro mundo de forma poética, delicada y exquisita a través de la manipulación fotográfica. 

Ella crea obras conceptuales con una estética etérea  que evocan emociones, como lujuria, deseo, desesperación y pérdida. Jugando con la mente humana y la belleza femenina, permitiéndonos enriquecer nuestro mundo con su visión atmosférica, onírica y fantástica.

"New Rules of Creativity"



  

OPEN MIND & DISRUPTION 
"New Rules of Creativity"
BY DIALOGUE REVIEW BASED ON IDEAS OF VIVEK WADHWA


Much of what is needed has already been created. To innovate for the future, you must be able to see it.
 

History is no longer a guide to the future. This is how it used to work: once in a blue moon, a major discovery was made, or else something transformative was invented, and the human existence advanced on the back of it, in one giant leap. Think of the effect the discovery of fire had. Winters became tolerable. Food could be cooked and, thus, rid of many poisons. Night times became active. Lives rapidly lengthened. Agriculture helped us feed our rapidly growing, maturing population. General nutrition levels rocketed. Lives became healthier and happier. The invention of sails t riggered international travel. Powered flight made it exponentially quicker. Lives become wider; richer. Yet if we saw just one such milestone in our lifetime we were among the lucky spectators of history. The big difference in the digital age is that we see one milestone almost every year.
This article is based on ideas in Vivek’s book (coauthored with Alex Salkever) "The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future."  READ THIS GREAT ARTICLE AND THE GRAPHIC VERSION VIA DIALOGUE REVIEW. . .

"What is a Social Enterprise?"





CREATIVITY & DISRUPTION 
Defining Social Enterprise and Social Business
BY CLARE JONES VIA CLEARLYSO.COM
Over the past few years, as ClearlySo has grown and changed, the most common questions we have been asked are: “What is a social enterprise?” and “What is a social business?”. We knew underneath both simply meant an organisation that seeks to be financially successful while creating social and/or environmental impact. It has commercial goals and it has impact goals – it is really not that complicated.
 

With famous examples of these kinds of businesses –  Green and Blacks, Divine Chocolate or Ben and Jerry’s – people can understand what it means to consider social impact alongside financial return. Many people who approach us ask how social enterprises make their money, or how a social enterprise is different from a business (or indeed how it is different from a charity). Because there is such a range of high-impact organisations operating in such a myriad of ways, these questions are impossible to answer precisely – except that, simply put, these businesses have impact and financial success at their core.

Neuralink wants to merge man & machine
THE NEW CHALLENGE OF
ELON MUSK BY LIAT CLARK VIA WIRED UK

The new project of Elon Musk wants to merge man and machine with Neuralink; The SpaceX and Tesla founder wants to prepare humans for the rise of artificial intelligence by helping us merge with computers. Elon Musk is attempting to combat the rise of artificial intelligence with the launch of his latest venture, brain-computer interface company Neuralink.
 
Little is known about the startup, aside from what has been revealed in a Wall Street Journal report, but says sources have described it as “neural lace” technology that is being engineered by the company to allow humans to seamlessly communicate with technology without the need for an actual, physical interface. The company has also been registered in California as a medical research entity because Neuralink’s initial focus will be on using the described interface to help with the symptoms of chronic conditions, from epilepsy to depression.
