I'm not sure what to fully think of this video, but it is definitely entertaining and makes me think! Sharing, hoping someone will watch it and discuss with me :)

Amazing game theoretic take on "The evolution of trust" or rather mistrust :\
Sit back, it will be time well spent(my score 30). Offers a glimpse into the real world of trust, altruism in face of compounding effects of fake news and "virtually" social interaction!

Secaucus bike lane in the works on Meadowlands Parkway

SECAUCUS - Secaucus is getting its very first bike lane, and there may be more on the way. The first lane is currently under construction on the west side of Meadowlands Parkway and will run from the former Hess property near Route 3 to the Harmon Cove condominium complex about a mile down the road.

Secaucus continues the green eco-friendly drive. Mayor Mike Gonnelli "Secaucus is a very bike-friendly town - it's a good town to bike in," he added. "It really is not like Hoboken or any other (Hudson County town) like that. There's always room to bike."

"While the existing paths currently allow for bicycles, this phase will be the first bike path solely dedicated to bicycles, said Scott Goodman, field manager with AJM construction. Phase One consists of a bike path on Meadowlands Parkway southbound from the Route 3 exit to the parking garage and enhancement of the gravel path behind the Meadowlands Hospital. One traffic signal will be updated to include a signal for bicycles, added Goodman.

Phase Two of the project, which is awaiting funding and redevelopment of a property near the Route 3 Bridge, will extend the bike path and create one continuous path from Mill Creek Park to behind Harmon Cove, said Goodman."

This is such a wonderful "green solution". Hoping to implement at work too. Let's see!

Veerni Project - Founders

The Veerni Project is guided by the core belief that when girls and women are educated and healthy, they will have the strength to create positive changes in their lives as well as in their communities and gain economic independence.

I happened to read about the Veerni Project on NPR and was very impressed with the work they do. There are definite gaps in my information and I am trying to find out more. However it seems to me to be a genuine cause where your money would probably be put to good use to help a girl child or even a child bride get an education that might be life saving for her. You can even sponsor a child. Do check it out.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Severn Suzuki has been working on environmental and social justice issues since kindergarten. At age 9, she and some friends started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues.

Very impressive speech by a twelve year old girl at the United Nations summit. Please watch.

Deconstruction of Light

The art department at my school does this really awesome thing where, every Thursday, they hire a model to come to our drawing studio so that anyone can come and practice their skills. Last night I partook in one of these Open Model Sessions and for 2 hours painted in the corner. I discovered so many amazing things in those two hours about light, volume, line, and space. The main thing I focused on was the warmth and coolness of light and how it falls on the planes of the model's figure. The light from the lamp over the model's head was cool-- represented by the cool green highlights. The ambient light was warmer, hence the red shadows under the chin. Each brush mark is there for a specific reason. I let myself dart around the page-- giving no attention to the fact that this is a painting of a girl on a pillow, but rather simply responding to the planar light relationships. I'm looking forward to a whole semester of these sessions!
