Born to Thrive - Color Blindness is Bullshit - Episode 12
How to parent in the 21st Century is a huge question for many parents today. More than simple parenting hacks I find myself and other parents asking bigger questions. What are the skills and resources we need to provide our children? What is needed for our children to THRIVE, mentally, physically, and emotionally in today's world?
This series began as a means for me to start conversations with my kids. It has since grown into broader conversations with other parents and young people. From the simple day-to-day to the larger and more philosophical questions:
What should I eat?
How much sleep should I get?
Do I need to exercise?
What does it mean to be successful?
What does equality mean and look like in America?
What skills and talents do you need to have access to the American Dream?
What privileges matter in your pursuit of happiness? Does white privilege exist?
How are the stresses we face today different than the those faced by older generations?
Besides medication how can we combat anxiety and depression?
How do you build community and connection that gives real support in the analog world with connections made in the digital?
What role does individual evolution and growth play in an ongoing evolving culture?
My desire as a parent is to create an environment and provide opportunities that allow my children to THRIVE. I'm not worried about their future professional success. In this rapidly changing world who knows what that means? Rather, are they healthy human beings mentally, physically, and emotionally. Do they have the skills, resilience, and courage to adapt to a stressful and changing world? Can they THRIVE independent of my support? Can they find, build, and contribute to a community in a positive way?
It is both a very rewarding and challenging time to be a parent and a young person. The world is changing faster than at any other time in history. In no way do I believe I have “The Answers”. I’m passing on some life experiences, mixed in with a few observations, and mashing it all together with hope and love. That's my way of saying, Help! LOL
If you have any positive insights or questions on how to live a thriving life in the 21st Century I would love to hear them. You can put them in the comments below or contact me directly via my website:
Planet Flat Earth | 2018 Nature Documentary II
Fkn Sciene Bro! Is the Earth a Planet? Nope. Just a plane without the T. =)
The Earth is actually Flat. Sub to Hibbeler:
From Pole to Pole, Mountains, Fresh Water, Caves, Deserts, Ice Worlds, Great Plains, Jungles, The Shallow Seas, Seasonal Forests, and Ocean Deep.
Remote islands offer sanctuary for some of the planet's strangest and rarest creatures. The rare pygmy three-toed sloth enjoys a peaceful existence on an idyllic Caribbean island, while nesting albatross thrive in predator-free isolation. But island life always comes at a cost.
On the Galapagos Islands, young marine iguana must escape an onslaught of deadly racer snakes the moment they hatch from the sand. On the sub-Antarctic island of Zavodovski, life gets more extreme still. Every day, one and a half million penguins risk being battered against the rocks by fierce waves as they try to get on and off the island.
The great mountain ranges are some of the planet's most spectacular landscapes, but they are unforgiving places to live in, and only a few animals have what it takes to live at extreme altitude. Mountain animals are amongst the most elusive in the world, and this film provides unique and intimate glimpses into their secretive lives.
Witness the moment four snow leopards come together when a mother and cub become trapped between two rival males. Join grizzly bears as they dance against trees to rub off their winter fur and soar with golden eagles hunting amongst Europe's snow-capped peaks.
Jungles provide the richest habitats on the planet - mysterious worlds of high drama where extraordinary animals attempt to survive in the most competitive place on earth. Flooded forests are home to caiman-hunting jaguars and strange dolphins that swim amongst the tree tops, while in the dense underworld, ninja glass frogs fight off wasps and flying dragons soar between trees. High in the canopy slender-bodied spider monkeys brachiate through the thin branches helping each other along the way. Acrobatic indri leap through the forests of Madagascar, while the jungle night conceals strange fungi and glow-in-the-dark creatures never filmed before.
The world's deserts are lands of extremes that force animals to come up with ingenious ways of coping with hostile conditions, giving rise to the most incredible survival stories on earth. A pride of desert lions are so hungry they risk hunting a giraffe several times their size, while male sandgrouse fly 120 miles each day to the nearest waterhole and dice with death to collect water for their chicks.
Filmed for the first time, a tiny bat does battle with one of the world's deadliest scorpions, and in Madagascar, a locust swarm of biblical proportions is seen as never before.
Grasslands cover one-quarter of all land and support the vast gatherings of wildlife, but to survive here animals must endure the most hostile seasonal changes on the planet. From Asia's bizarre-looking saiga antelope to the giant anteaters of Brazil, grassland animals have adapted in extraordinary ways to cope with these extremes.
In the flooded Okavango, lions take on formidable buffalo in epic battles, on the savannah, bee-eaters take advantage of elephants to help catch insects and, on the freezing northern tundra, caribou embark on great migrations shadowed by hungry Arctic wolves.
Cities are growing at a faster rate than any other habitat on Earth. They may seem an unlikely place for animals to thrive, but they can be a world of surprising opportunity. Leopards prowl the streets of Mumbai, peregrine falcons hunt amongst New York City's skyscrapers, and a million starlings perform spectacular aerial dances over Rome. In Jodhpur, langurs are revered as religious deities and in Harar, locals live in harmony with wild hyenas.
Many animals, however, struggle to cope in the urban jungle. As the architects of this environment, can humans choose to build cities that are homes for both them and wildlife?

Paradise or Oblivion
Paradise or Oblivion
This video presentation advocates a new socio-economic system, which is updated to present-day knowledge, featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a Resource-Based Economy. This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other establishment notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world's people. It is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite or on illusionary so-called democracies, but on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet that could ultimately provide abundance for all people.
Paradise or Oblivion, by The Venus Project, introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system that would be required to enable this caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. This alternative surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environment, which we find ourselves in today.
This is NOT the major motion picture that The Venus Project is working towards but rather is a short documentary to introduce the aims and proposals to new people.
This is a free online documentary created by The Venus Project. Original music by Carly Paradis ( from her album They Have Been Watching.

This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face.
Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture.
Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable.
Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment.
Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us.

*special thanks also to Alexander Obraz ...Obraz.io who created the many 2d motion depictions (plus the sound fx!) of concepts such as the hamburgers and fried chicken segment and many others which are Alexander's inimitable work style and attention to details where we needed very specific illustrations of key points.
The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

Jonas qui aura 25 ans en l'an 2000 (1976), by Alain Tanner
Sub: Português (PT-Br), Deustch, English, Español, Română
Au lendemain de Mai 68, les destins de quatre couples s'entremêlent dans le canton de Genève : un professeur d'histoire et une caissière frontalière (Miou-Miou) aux allures de Robin des Bois qui apporte son soutien et sa compagnie à un retraité des chemins de fer (Raymond Bussières) habitant Annemasse; un paysan amoureux des baleines et sa femme qui se prostitue avec des immigrés, un ouvrier typographe au chômage (Rufus) et sa femme enceinte (Myriam Boyer); un correcteur dans un journal (Jean-Luc Bideau) et une secrétaire d'un banquier, adepte du tantrisme.
As manifestações revolucionárias de 1968 sacodem a Europa e conduzem o mundo a significativas transformações sociais. Um grupo de oito pessoas, entre seus 20 e 30 anos, acredita que finalmente o idealismo dos protestos de sua geração vai trazer bons frutos, bastando que a chama não se apague. Uma dessas pessoas tem um filho, Jonas, que terá 25 anos no ano 2000. O filme, escrito por Alain Tanner, em parceria com o crítico de arte John Berger, se tornou um clássico do idealismo e da esperança em um futuro utópico, mas melhor.
