God and Satan in Mediation: Restorative Empathy Circle


https://youtu.be/g_xFSxKeuXU
God and Satan take part in this Restorative Empathy Circle Mediation to work out their differences. For millennium God and Satan have been in conflict with each other. Edwin Rutsch invites them to take part in a Restorative Empathy Circle to use mutual empathic listening to talk out their differences. The opening issue they talk about is that Satan left heaven.

An Empathy Circle is a structured dialogue process based on mutual active listening. The process increases constructive dialogue and mutual understanding by ensuring that each person feels fully heard to their satisfaction. It can be used for conflict mediation.

Trump makes fun of the Trail Of Tears when mocking Elizabeth Warren's (D - MN) president candidacy announcement


The president's use of the word "trail" in all caps was widely interpreted as a reference to the Trail of Tears in which Native Americans were forcibly relocated from their homes in the southeastern U.S. to reservations in Oklahoma in the 1800s. Thousands of them died from disease, starvation and exposure along the way.

Of course it had to be joked about, it's not like he could now be accused of indecency regarding the US' bloody history of displacement, genocide, or colonialism/imperialism. The foundation was paved by murder, until now. Why not laugh about it, then? It's surely no sign of bad taste or plain humiliation towards the international community.
The stable genius should be kicked in the balls if he had any. I would merely say: "Take off the gloves when you hit his face", but I know the struggles of washing off the grease of Doritos.

Nowhere to Call Home

A Tibetan in Beijing


Nowhere to Call Home gives an unprecedented intimate look at the lives of rural Tibetan women, as well as the gritty reality of ethnic prejudice in the world’s fastest rising global power, China.

Widowed Tibetan farmer Zanta defies her tyrannical father-in-law and refuses to marry his other son, imprisoned for robbery. When Zanta’s in-laws won’t let her seven-year-old go to school, she flees to Beijing to become a peddler. Destitute and embattled by discrimination, she tries to give her son to a customer—an American journalist. On a holiday visit to Zanta’s village, the unwitting petite foreigner must decide whether to intervene in the family dispute with Zanta’s knife-wielding father-in-law, or watch Zanta and her son suffer abuse typically faced by Tibetan widows and their children.

Tomorrow's MLK's birthday!


The upcoming holiday will give many people a three-day weekend.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal holiday that falls on the the third Monday of January.
_A good amount of places that are a part of your normal routine could be closed, so don't let the holiday sneak up on you and confuse you. _

The link may have some interesting information for those of you who live in the state of Pennsylvania, and of course for the rest of you who live in one of the other 49 states.

Aside of this, we should especially remember MLK's words nowadays, in days where even the youngsters behave disrespectfully against the Natives who were vanished almost completely from their native land, because the European settlers claimed this land to be theirs. Racism spreads thanks to the orange buffoon, discrimination has become a ubiquitious feature. Social division becomes wider and wider, polarisation likewise. We have to do something against, people have to unite again, and stop themselves from devastating each other, to be unable... Show more...

People who deeply grasp the pain or happiness of others also process music differently in the brain
Higher empathy people appear to process music like a pleasurable proxy for a human encounter — in the brain regions for reward, social awareness and regulation of social emotions.
The researchers found that compared to low empathy people, those with higher empathy process familiar music with greater involvement of the reward system of the brain, as well as in areas responsible for processing social information.

Mayor of #Naples ready to open harbour for Sea Watch


"I hope this boat comes to the port of Naples because unlike what the government says we will put into the field a rescue action and we will let it into the port," he said.

Does anyone know what Matteo Salvini has said about this move? Is he very upset about it, or is he indifferent about it and now awaits a rise of criminality in this city? I don't know, I am late already since this report is four days old.

Some 18 NGOs including Save The Children, Amnesty International, Emergency and Doctors Without Borders appealed to EU member states to take in the 49 migrants aboard the two vessels on Thursday. (ANSAmed).

Lost at Sea

On December 6, Doctors Without Borders was forced to end its life-saving operations in the Mediterranean, after pressure from a coalition of right-wing European governments blocked its ability to deploy its vessel.

Priest questions teen's entry to heaven after having committed suicide


Maison Hullibarger’s father tells the Detroit Free Press that he asked the priest to stop talking during the Dec. 8 funeral Mass. But Jeff Hullibarger says the Rev. Don LaCuesta continued giving a critical sermon at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Temperance.

If I was the father, I would have gotten up and slapped this priest, then leave the church. This is not even ekpathetic, this is downright arsehole-ish, God gave himself a facepalm in heaven, and wished for this bastardish creature to have never been created. Why does this man even practise this job if he is not interested in his sheep, but treats them like shit? I simply have got no words for this to describe his misbehaviour.

Objector


Directsd by Molly Stuart

Like all Israeli teenagers, Atalya Ben Abba is obligated to become a soldier. Unlike most, she questions the ethics of her country’s military and becomes determined to challenge this rite of passage. Her family expresses a range of political disagreements and personal concerns. Nevertheless, she refuses her military duty and is imprisoned for her dissent. Objector follows Atalya through her conscientious objection, imprisonment, and beyond, as she attempts to reconcile her Jewish identity, her love for her homeland, and her dedication to Palestinian rights.

Google and Social Skills - Google und die Sozialkompetenz

If i search “social skills” “sozialkompetenz” in Google… and i checkout the autocomplete what Google SuperAI thinks is most interesting for me.

It turns out in Germany nobody is interested in social skills X-D

But social skills are the basics of good work relationships/cooperation in a company, of friendship, of family of relationships.

Slaughterhouse

What the meat industry hides


With images obtained during an investigation carried out in 58 slaughterhouses in Mexico between 2015 and 2017, Slaughterhouse is a documentary that takes us into the hermetic world of the meat industry. The footage shows the systematic exploitation and violence suffered by animals in slaughterhouses and that is deliberately kept hidden by the meat industry.

In order to carry out this documentary, the director, who for years has been carrying out a project against animal exploitation named as Tras los Muros, has had to use false identities that have allowed him to access all these places.

Is mankind savage

Is mankind really savage in nature?

I would say: Mankind has the POTENTIAL to exist in many different ways.

It depends pretty much on the ability of the free will to escape or shape and alter the environment, or be shaped and altered by the environment.

Thus: Depending on how you grow up – (lack of love, compassion, money, money, money) everyone can become a potential murderer – it is a matter of conditioning.

The effects of money-conditioning of the brain are scientifically proven: anti social behavior: loneliness and to help others less. ()

Loneliness is pretty much the opposite of happiness, unless you are so traumatized by mankind, that you prefer to be alone, than surrounded by assholes.

Love and learn from others however seems best. Your imitation and variation, your love and empathy, are essential to the progress of the world.

When robots are built to compensate for the lack of empathy of doctors you know you're in trouble.


Empathetic robots

In Japan, scientists are working on how humans can be more empathetic on a daily basis.

As part of his research, Goldman visited Japan to find out more about the #robots , and #androids that are being manufactured to have #empathy.

Erica is a robot who can have human like interactions with everyone she meets.
 
"Tell me," said Yen Hui, "what is fasting of the heart?"

Confucius replied: "The goal of fasting is inner unity. This means hearing, but not with the ear; hearing, but not with the understanding; hearing with the spirit, with your whole being. The hearing that is only in the ears is one thing. The hearing of the understanding is another. But the hearing of the spirit is not limited to any one faculty, to the ear, or to the mind. Hence it demands the emptiness of all the facul­ties. And when the faculties are empty, then the whole being listens. There is then a direct grasp of what is right there before you that can never be heard with the ear or understood with the mind. Fasting of the heart empties the faculties, frees you from limitation and from preoccupation. Fasting of the heart begets unity and freedom."
-> The Way of Chuang Tzu - by Thomas Merton
