The Three Types Of Education

Why do we measure people’s level of success on where they went to school? AIsn’t it about the person and their unique happiness? AWhile it may seem not, that is because most people assume that there is only one type of education in the world. AWe begin to believe that intelligence is defined by education. AOf course, this is not true. AIn fact, we believe that there are three levels of education:

1. Formal Education

2. Self-Taught Education

3. "The School of Hard Knocks"

Japan May Pick Robots Over Immigrants

Japan, like many countries across the globe, is facing huge challenges in caring for its aging population.

Its hospitals are stretched because there are not enough nurses to cope.

The low birth rate there means foreign workers need to be recruited but there is a widespread opposition to immigration in the country as many Japanese value an ethnically homogenous society.

For some, robots may be preferable to allowing foreigners to work there.

Kris Kuksi : Sculpture

Kuksi's art speaks of a timelessness-potentiality and motion attempting to reach on forever, and yet pessimistically delayed; forced into the stillness of death and eternal sleep. He treats morbidity with a sympathetic touch and symbolizes the paradox of the death of the individual by objective personification of death. There is a fear of this consciousness because it drops in upon us without mercy, and yet there is a need to appeal to it in order to provide a sense of security, however deluded that sense may be. Kuksi's art warns us that this appeal is irrelevant, and that we should be slow to create a need for it. His themes also teach us that although death may pursue us arbitrarily, we should never neglect to mourn the tremendous loss of individual potential.

Where Will LeBron Land?

So we’re stuck with this conversation for 45 days, all the way until July 1 to be exact. Six-plus weeks of leaks and sources, of wooing and recruiting, ofALeBron James being sighted at a haberdashery in Midtown Manhattan or a restaurant in Chicago’s West Loop or at a private party on Miami’s South Beach. Anywhere he shows his face it’s sure to be "BREAKING NEWS."
