Learning how to listen to others…

I enjoy learning what other people are thinking, and why they are thinking that way. It provides me context to hear what they are saying! Then I condense their thoughts into a summary statement. That way I can remember and share the mindset with others when circumstances allow me to do so. I would encourage others to try this…It enhances your appreciation for Ted talks!

Bad news sources

All the news sources Christiane Amanpour lists as “trustworthy” are the ones lying to us and can’t be trusted. Not surprising, since this is coming from a CNN reporter. She barely scratched the surface on what is really going on in Iran and Ukraine. The tragic killings there are horrific. Where’s the in depth reporting? Climate change is not a global disaster, the policies being used to “fight” climate change is what’s causing the catastrophe on humans.
