MNP! Kim Jong-Il : Trendsetter?

The robot man with magical powers whoAis said once to have scored 11 holes-in-one in a single round of golf and was born amongst rainbows on the sacred Mount Paekdu is now part of a new claim.

Pyongyang’s official website is saying that Kim Jong-Il’s modest-looking suits have become a global vogue.

How to Avoid Being a One-hit Wonder

The person who makes hit after hit does so by a combination of two factors - he has the necessary knowledge about the fundamentals, and when he lands that hit that makes him visible, he leverages the new social network this opens to him. He uses the newly available brainpower to him to make the next hit.

Ninja For Hire

The Wall Street Journal investigates the path and rise of the job title, "ninja." Over 800 self-titled ninjas are now public on LinkedIn- but is the ninja always a ninja or can they become a samurai?

The phenomenon started in 2003 and apparently really began to take off last year. Jinichi Kawakami, one of the last living ninjas in Iga, Japan, insists that "ninjas aren’t assassins and a real ninja must have stealth, intelligence, a righteous heart and patience."

Anyways, watch the video my ninjas..

My NINJA please 4.6.10 : Weapon o’ Chili!

The world’s hottest chili or ghost chili or bhut jolokia is going to be a new defense weapon in the form of tear gas grenades for the Indian military. With a rating of 1,000,000 Scoville units, other spicyness doesn’t compare (Tabasco ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units and jalapeno peppers are rated at 2,500 to 8,000).

"The chili grenade has been found fit for use after trials in Indian defense laboratories, a fact confirmed by scientists at theADefense Research and DevelopmentAOrganization," Col. R. Kalia, a defense spokesman in theAnortheastern state of Assam, told The Associated Press.

"This is definitely going to be an effective nontoxic weapon because its pungent smell can choke terrorists and force them out of their hide-outs," R. B. Srivastava, the director of theALife Sciences DepartmentAat theNew Delhi headquartersAof theADRDOAsaid.

Bhutan and the Modern Terma

St. Pema Lingpa in the form of Prime Minister, Jigmi Y. Thinley, a Penn State graduate and a former royal administrator and diplomat, has revealed a modern terma or hidden treasure for Bhutan and the rest of the world. Working with GPI Atlantic, a maritime think tank, the relatively new monarchy has come up with and introduced a new gross national happiness (GNH) curriculum into the country’s education system.

GNH rests on four pillars of value: environmental conservation; cultural preservation and promotion; sustainable and equitable development; and good governance, including the development of active and responsible citizenship. These pillars are divided into seventy-two quantifiable variables, designed to provide hard data about significant issues.

The outcome, said Thinley, should be:

"an educational system that is quite different from the conventional factory, where…children are just turned out to become economic animals, thinking only for themselves." Instead, graduates would be "more human beings, with human values, that give importance to relationships, that are eco-literate, contemplative, analytical." They would know that their own happiness was found in giving happiness "to your spouse, to your family, to your neighbours a and to the world at large."

Time to Rethink Design

David Carlson of the David Report has released a new trend look at the state of a full design world. Design contamination has taken over an expertise that is barely 100 years old; new products are simply the variations of old themes- (conceptual design, new articulations of the same, design signatures and design as art).

However if we are able to get back to using aging products and making design matter in a lifecycle, there is a cleaner horizon.

Designer Naoto Fukasawa: "I understand that myArole is about enhancing our living…. I've become moreAattached to the current life, and have started considering the betterment of our lives in a reality where we allAbelong, rather than predicting what could happen".

We need new storytellers:

Fred Alan Wolf - The Dreaming Universe (1994):A"Aboriginals believe in two forms of time: two parallelAstreams of activity. One is the daily objective activity,Athe other is an infinite spiritual cycle, called dreamtime,Amore real than reality itself…".

Carlson poses a great question, how do we A"change old habits and not to perpetuate the sales argument that the main role of designAis added value."

the Internet for Nobel Peace Prize 2010

(ANSA) - Rome, March 11 - House Speaker Gianfranco Fini on Thursday threw his weight behind an initiative launched by an Italian tech magazine to award the Internet with this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

"We’re finally realizing that the Internet is not just a computer network. It’s a web of human relationships - of men and women from every latitude - who connect across the greatest communications platform man has ever seen," he told parliament during an address on web freedom.

Fini was joined by some 160 MPS in signing Wired Italia’s appeal to nominate the Internet for the world’s most distinguished civic service accolade.

"Meeting with each other has always been the best antidote to violence and hate. It gives all of us the chance to plant the seeds for peace"."A Nobel peace prize for the Internet would be an award for everyone," he concluded.

Wired Italia launched its appeal last November in a video posted to its website (wired.it) entitled the Internet for Peace Manifesto.
Its nomination was officially accepted by the Norwegian Nobel Committee last month, according to Wired.

Early supporters for the drive included 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Iranian rights activist Shirin Ebadi, fashionAmogul Giorgio Armani and cancer research pioneer and former Italian health minister Umberto Veronesi.

Governments in Uganda, Mozambique and Paraguay have also backed the Web’s Nobel bid.

Wired Italia is one of two international editions of Wired Magazine, a San Francisco based monthly on trends in technology, politics and culture.

Brainwashed: Seven Ways to Reinvent

"Years ago, when you were about four years old, the system set out to persuade you of something that isn't true.

Not just persuade, but drill, practice, reinforce, and yes, brainwash.

The mission: to teach you that you're average. That compliant work is the best way to a reliable living. That creating average stuff for average people, again and again, is a safe and easy way to get what you want.

Step out of line and the system would nudge (or push) you back to the center. Show signs of real creativity, originality or even genius, and well-meaning parents, teachers and authority figures would eagerly line up to get you back in line.

Our culture needed compliant workers, people who would contribute without complaint, and we set out to create as many of them as we could.

And so generations of students turned into generations of cogs, factory workers in search of a sinecure. We were brainwashed into fitting in, and then discovered that the economy wanted people who stood out instead.

When exactly were we brainwashed into believing that the best way to earn a living is to have a job?

I think each one of us needs to start with that."
