Most Surprising Findings from Psychological Studies

Cognitive dissonance … This is perhaps one of the weirdest and most unsettling findings in psychology. Cognitive dissonance is the idea that we find it hard to hold two contradictory beliefs, so we unconsciously adjust one to make it fit with the other. In the classic study, students found a boring task more interesting if they were paid less to take part. Our unconscious reasons like this: if I didn’t do it for money, then I must have done it because it was interesting. As if by magic, a boring task becomes more interesting because otherwise I can’t explain my behaviour.

Rosemary Fusca ~ Wouldn’t It Be Cool If…

I spend alot of time studying the Law of Attraction and working with people (myself included) who are wanting to co-create and manifest a life and career of their dreams. One of the best ways that I know how to manifest is to make sure that I’m clear. And what do I mean by “clear”?

SFU launches first medical tourism website

Medicaltourismandme.com, a unique new website developed by Simon Fraser University’s Medical Tourism Research Group, uses the power of personal testimony to educate consumers about the perils and pluses of medical tourism. The globally flourishing industry has tourists flocking to foreign countries for treatment of health problems they can’t easily get treated and financially covered within their home countries for a variety of reasons.

Big trouble in BC ~ Metal-Laden Toxic Material

The results are in! Apparently the residents of Likely, BC are safe to drink the water after 4,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools of toxic water and 4.5 million cubic metres of metal-laden toxic material from Mount Polley Mine’s tailings pond poured into their water supply. But when we look a bit closer, we know things aren’t right.

SWERUS-C3: Methane release from Arctic Ocean

Just a week into the sampling program and SWERUS-C3 scientists have discovered vast methane plumes escaping from the seafloor of the Laptev continental slope. These early glimpses of what may be in store for a warming Arctic Ocean could help scientists project the future releases of the strong greenhouse gas methane from the Arctic Ocean.

Climate Is Back

The good news is that climate is back. Recent developments have brought climate back to the forefront. Climate is news again. According to a Bloomberg National Poll, Americans are willing to bear the costs of combating climate change, and most are more likely to support a candidate seeking to address the issue. By an almost two-to-one margin, 62 percent to 33 percent, Americans say they would pay more for energy if it would mean a reduction in pollution from carbon emissions.

POLITICO

Fair Vote Canada ~ Help us Hit 100,000 Signers

100,000 signers before the 2015 federal election would send a powerful message to the party leaders and candidates that Canadians want a fair voting system, and are willing to make a commitment to it an election issue. We are looking forward to delivering this petition to the party leaders and the media!

Mike Rilstone ~ Prairie Farmers Shot their Own Feet Off!

By eliminating the Canadian Wheat Board, Harper removed the Prairie Farmers unified power. When will they learn? Years before the May, 2011 Federal election, if a Prairie Farmer had listened to Harper’s platform, they would have known he was a corporate-loving plutocrat, (whose personal wealth while Prime Minister had shot from chicken scraps to $15 million), and he was planning to give prairie farming to the huge conglomerates.

Richard Ring ~ Vital food banks can work better

I am aware of the reluctance of politicians to mention the word poverty (the instant vilification of Stephane Dion a few years ago, for proposing help for the poor through a carbon tax, comes to mind) but find it puzzling that not once is that word included, nor any suggestion that it can be fixed. As I do the comment that food banks cater to a market that governments generally believe they have failed. They are most assuredly very aware of the fact that they have failed.
