Dr. Karin Jeffery from San Jose State University took a group of students on a faculty led program to Rwanda. One of the students, videographer Kevin Nguyen, kept a record of their trip and the stories they came back with are trul [...]
Working with difficult people
We all have difficult people to deal with at one time or another. At home, at work, at the grocery store. People have bad days. We have bad days. And that, right there is the thing. At the end of the day, we are all just people, trying to do the best we can from our own level of consciousness. Those of us who feel mindfulness is important can still have an unconscious mom [...]

Quitting or not, here's what you can do to be safer with your personal info on #Facebook
Oh my oh my, without getting into politics here, I'm appalled by this whole Facebook and Cambridge Analytica nightmare. If you don't know what it's all about, here it is from my viewpoint in a nutshell. A company called Cambridge Analytica used Facebook's API in 2014 to collect personal information from over 50 million Facebook users. Back in 2014 it was perfectly legal for [...]
