Einstein Didn’t Say That: Why the Genius is Misquoted So Much

Positivity
Albert Einstein was an indisputable genius of physics with an overwhelming passion for science and theory. He has said many great and eminently quotable things — so why, in the time since his death, has he been so widely misquoted? What does this say about Einstein, and our own theories of what makes someone a genius?A genius is a person who displays exceptional intellectual ability – but sometimes a common misconception is that someone must be a genius in all topics and areas, versus having a specific knowledge and special ability born of great focus and dedication. Einstein, for example, was a brilliant physicist, but was not an exceptionally talented painter.The risks of putting “genius” on a pedestal is that it feels universal in knowledge, and in effect undervalues everyone’s own ability to excel in their area of focus or passion. ...

This Woman Lost 108 Pounds After Surviving a Heart Attack

Positivity
After Kate Adams survived a heart attack and began cardiac rehabilitation, she quickly realized it was time to make lasting change. “It kind of dawned on me that pretty much all I was doing was working and then coming home and lying down. I was just sore and tired, and it wasn’t the life I wanted for myself,” Kate told POPSUGAR. “I wanted to be the healthiest, happiest version of me for myself and my family. So that’s what got me started, focusing on what I can do to feel good instead of on fear and what I can’t do.” Kate was only 27 years old when she experienced two transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). Coloquially referred to as “mini-strokes”, TIAs are often the early warning signs of a potential full-blown stroke. ...

To all empaths: here are the 4 types of narcissists you are attracting right now

Empaths and narcissists are like two magnets, constantly searching for one another. It almost feels like they ‘need’ each other to function (well, at least that is true for the narcissist).

There are a couple you should be wary of, as they do possess varying characteristics.Thus, the two main types narcissists one should be conscious of are:Vulnerable Narcissists (VN’s)This type exhibits strong abandonment and rejection issues. They meticulously utilize the facade of ‘vulnerability’ in order to make it possible for them to turn into something/someone they idolize or worship. Needless to say, the inability to show empathy, as well as deep affection is constant with them. They also possess the tendency to be highly skilled and masterful in the manipulation tactic of playing mind games....

Why Susan Levin is Known as the Miracle That Saved Robert Downey Jr.

Positivity
With over a decade of wedded bliss to their name, Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey (nee Levin) make up one of Hollywood’s most enviable couples. Their love story isn’t a traditional one, however. Susan actually met the actor at one of the lowest points in his life, right after he spent close to a year in jail and had just finished court-ordered rehab for an addiction that often made headlines. Robert could have lost his movie career for good, but then, in 2002, he talked his way into a role in a thriller called Gothika by agreeing to get most of his pay after shooting ended. The experience would change his life in more ways than one. Not only did Robert meet his future bride, but she also ended up turning his entire world upside down — for the better. In August 2005, the couple said “I do” after two years of being engaged. In 2012, they had their first child, son Exton Elias Downey, then welcomed daughter Avri Roel Downey in 2014. ...

Character actor Danny Trejo may be known for his intimidating, tough-guy persona due to his villainous roles in movies like Desperado and TV shows like Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy, but he was quite the hero recently when he rescued a baby trapped in a car wreck in Los Angeles.This was nothing like the movies — it was a real-life act of heroism that happened after the actor witnessed a scary scene with his own two eyes, worse than any action scene. Trejo was stopped at a red light when he saw two cars crash into each other, and one car roll over. “This lady was right beside me and I look over… she went right through the light and bam!” Trejo told KABC. “I got out of my car and ran over.

18 signs you are an extremely judgemental person and what you can do to change

Positivity
Being judgemental is often seen as synonymous with being too full of oneself, in combination with an over the top, inflated sense of self-confidence.“Get off your high horse!“, people like to say to such behavior.However, judgementalism is in fact a defense mechanism to protect a most probably very fragile ego.It can easily be concluded that we as people desire societal approval, especially that of our closest friends and family. However, that is not always what we receive I am afraid. In our constant pursuit of recognition and praise, we can many times fall into a spiral of disapproval and possibly even neglect.Consequently, this circumstance could lead to us feeling hateful, spiteful, isolated, or even anxious at points. All due to the fact that we try so hard to hide our insecurities and flaws, that we tend to forget that we are not perfect. And we really can not and do not have to be. Read that again....

Using social media to tackle extremism

Positivity
Working in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) a few years ago, I noticed an interesting and troubling phenomenon occurring. I noticed that, increasingly, ISIS and a number of far-right extremist groups had begun extensively using social media as a platform for recruiting young people.Traditionally, recruitment by extremist groups had focused heavily on the face-to-face element, so this new method of social media exploitation was concerning. Increasingly what I was seeing was that groups like ISIS had figured out a way to tap into the allure of social media and target youth in Britain and beyond to be radicalised.At this point I knew I had to adapt my work and that traditional tactics would no longer be enough. In 2016, I was one of 10 people to be selected to form the Extremely Together group – a Kofi Annan Foundation initiative aimed at empowering young people to fight extremism – in order to respond to this online epidemic....

When “Dad Bods” Bite Back: The Trap of Male Body-Shaming

Positivity
When we consider body-shaming, it’s easy to get an image in our mind of a woman being attacked for her weight, how large or small her breasts are, or even the clothes she wears. It’s not often we consider that men can be body-shamed as well, and sometimes that shaming happens in the most unexpected places, with the most unexpected targets.When it comes to celebrities like Jason Momoa, Vin Diesel, and Nick Jonas, we generally know them for their tough guy swagger and shirtless adventure scenes on the big and small screens. They are held up as standards of hyper-masculinity and what a man’s body “should” look like. Which is why it’s so notable but they also have gotten attention of late for having “dad bods.” When pictures of Diesel and, more recently, Jonas and Momoa surfaced where they were shirtless but not looking as muscular as people had come to accept, headlines lambasted their bodies for not living up to beauty standards for men....

Forty-five minutes each way — on days when it wasn’t snowing. Over a winding mountain pass surrounded by lakes, aspen trees, and granite.

It was long and dangerous, and, frankly, it was daunting. Never in a million years would I have imagined the impact that commute would have on my life.Of course, at the time, I didn’t identify it as struggle. Honestly, the issue was that I was comfortable– in my patterns and in my lack of change. Sure, I was miserable. My anxiety was off the charts and I occasionally had suicidal thoughts.

Here, an ethical stance goes far beyond local sourcing, strict seasonality and nose-to-tail – or even root-to-fruit – cooking.

Meryl Streep Fought Through the Tragic Loss of Her First Love to Find Happiness

Positivity
Meryl Streep is an icon. The New Jersey native had starred in nearly 70 films, holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations of any actor and, at 70, she’s still acting. Add to that her four decade-long marriage and four loving kids and, upon first glance, it may seem like Meryl Streep has lived the perfect life. However, she’s had to deal with her share of heartbreak. In the late ‘70s, while she was still making a name for herself, Streep suffered a terrible loss, which could have easily derailed her career, as well as her personal life. Instead, she chose to open up her heart and it was that very decision that helped lay the groundwork for decades of success and happiness. ...

I Took a Break From Meditation and the Results Surprised Me

Positivity
Earlier this year, I attended my first Vipassana retreat. From 4am to 9pm for 10 days, with brief stops for breakfast and lunch, I meditated. Multiple times each day, I was reminded of the impermanence of existence (annica) and the importance of creating consistency with a meditation practice. Although this was my debut retreat, I’ve been meditating for six years. I’m well-versed. The discipline required for 10 days of noble silence was manageable. The experience renewed my vigour, as I found myself grounded, grateful, and connected to the wildlife of the German countryside, determined to stick to the recommended practice of one hour, twice per day. And I did. For a number of weeks, I’d wake up, stretch, spend an hour on the mat, and feel a sense of fulfillment. Each evening I’d do the same. ...

Five rewilding experiments taking root across the UK

Positivity
1. CaledoniaThe Scottish Highlands may appear to be pristine wilderness, but much of it is manmade moor. Trees have been stripped bare and kept at bay by centuries of over-stocking of animals, particularly deer, whose numbers have soared under the influence of sporting estates and in the absence of any natural predators.Elsewhere, conifer monocrops dominate a landscape that was once a richly mixed upland forest of juniper, birch, aspen and native pine. Relics of that past emerge in the form of ancient stumps from eroded peat bogs.Now it’s being restored thanks to the charity Trees for Life, which used funds raised by public appeals to buy the 10,000-acre Dundreggan estate in Glenmoriston in 2008. Its aim is to recreate the natural habitats of species such as capercaillie, wild boar and lynx. Since its foundation back in the 1980s, the charity’s volunteers have planted more than 1.5m native trees, and have helped to restore and regenerate forest fragments elsewhere, such as Glen Affric....

Wild riches: uncovering Knepp estate’s ambitious rewilding project

Positivity
Cycle through the Sussex Weald on a breezy spring day, and you’ll be pedalling through a trim and tidy countryside. Neatly clipped hedges bound close-cropped fields, grazed as often by ponies as cows (this is the home counties, after all). It’s a neat, well-manicured land.Then, all of a sudden, somewhere south of Horsham a great scruffiness strikes the eye. Hedges seem wildly overgrown, bursting with May blossom, invading meadows shabby with tussocks. There are great clumps of brambly thorn, with slender young oaks emerging shyly from the top as they spring into leaf. It’s gloriously, bewilderingly untidy.And there’s more, if you venture along a footpath into its midst. There are cows and pigs and ponies here, but not the standard-issue black and white Holsteins and pink porkers you might expect. Instead, Old English Longhorn cattle roam the scrubland, reaching up to pull leaves from a branch – very uncow-ish behaviour to eyes accustomed to heads-down grazing. Russet red Tamworths, looking more like boars than pigs, snuffle and rootle over the grass, churning it into mud. And the ponies are Exmoors, direct ancestors of the wild horses that roamed across Palaeolithic Europe....

Why it is time to stop saying “I’m sorry for your loss” and what we can say instead

Positivity
“I’m sorry for your loss” is widely accepted as the common phrase people use to express their condolences. But while it certainly seems like a well-meaning response to someone’s passing, it needs to be scrapped.Here are the reasons why:The grieving don’t need clichés Grieving family members repeatedly hearing “I’m sorry for your loss” does nothing to alleviate their pain but instead only pushes it forth even further, providing no consolidation whatsoever. “I’m sorry for your loss” is the most common response to this kind of situation and that is why it instantly almost loses all its sincerity. We need to avoid such robotic responses because after all, the death of someone is more than a simple cliché....

When a family hiking excursion left Jeremiah Peterson out of breath, he realized it was time to focus on his health.“I remember being bent over heaving just trying to catch my breath,” Peterson, of Missoula, Montana, told People. “When I looked up, I saw my wife and three kids [10, 8 and 7] easily hiking, talking and laughing with each other — without me. It was a hard-hitting moment.”“I felt sadness and shame in that moment thinking how I had let myself get to this, but so much deeper than that. If I continued to live like this, I would not live,” he continued.Growing up, Peterson was an active kid and spent a lot of time outdoors, but at school he was bullied.“In junior high, I made the decision to not get knocked around anymore,” he told Men’s Health. “I practically lived at the local Y lifting and shooting hoops.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer’s Marriage Blossomed From Their Idiosyncrasies

Positivity
Whirlwind romances are nothing new in Hollywood, but Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer’s fast-paced love story was quite a shocker, even by A-list standards. The pair went from never having met to a chance encounter to walking down the aisle and starting a family in the blink of an eye. It all started with Schumer’s assistant, Molly Fischer. Notice the last name? She’s actually Chris Fischer’s younger sister. It was 2017 and the actress was at her vacation home in Martha’s Vineyard where Fischer, an award-winning chef who grew up in the area and now works at the Beach Plum Inn, lives. Molly had the idea to invite her brother over to cook for Schumer, which he did. And so they met, but it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. ...

‘All we need is sun and sea’: England’s first commercial seaweed farm to open

Wave Crookes’s job is dictated by the vagaries of the ocean, which makes his name particularly fitting. “They call it nominative determinism,” he said, referring to the hypothesis that people gravitate towards jobs that fit their names. “I suppose I was always destined to be some sort of seafarer.”The former fisherman, deep-sea diver and RNLI lifeboat man, and his partner, Laura Robinson – a marine scientist – are in the process of establishing England’s first commercial-scale seaweed farm. Occupying 25 hectares of open water, a few miles from Scarborough in North Yorkshire, their SeaGrown farm will harvest seaweed native to the region for use in food, cosmetics and biotechnology.

It may come as a shock to you but the majority of today’s younger generation lack the basic skills needed in order to be an adult in today’s society and that is why so many people are calling for home economics class to be brought back to the school curriculum.Basic life skills are a must in order to function and survive in society, yet some kids lack some of the bare basics, like how to cook food and do laundry.

I’m sure his title isn’t rocket scientist but he has an advanced degree in aerospace engineering and works at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. As far as I am concerned, that means he’s a rocket scientist. He’s a super-smart guy. I don’t have any advanced degrees at all, much less anything in aerospace engineering. I used to call the engineering kids on campus at my university “the smart ones”. And one day, one of those smart ones let me in on a little secret: to him, I was the smart one.
