Decentralization, innovation, and web3 development are only possible through a united group. Building a community earns more authority, but it comes with its own set of challenges.
Creating, managing, and growing a community is time-consuming and requires effort, but considering some pointe...
We understand which foods are delicious based on the marketplace, and specifically advertising.
The future delicious tends to value the technological component of its manufacture over the actual food substrate.
For example, Oreos is one of the most man-made foods in existence. It is factory-produced from highly processed, shelf-stabilised flour, stripped of its nutrients, then re-enri...
What foods we will enjoy in the future depends on who 'we' are.
Shopping second-hand is becoming easier and more accessible than ever. Online thrifting is growing, and some believe the resale sector may become bigger than fast fashion.
The number of clothing items purchased every year has doubled in the last 15 years. We're buying more clothes and we're also throwing away many of these purchases.
Brands need to change the way clothes are made so they are more durable or recyclable, but we as consumers also have an essenti...
Your job is to answer the question, not evaluate it. Instead of commenting on the quality of the question, pause. Don’t be afraid to take a moment to think in silence, and, when you’re ready, make sure you respond confidently.
Paper produces about 60-80% of waste. Think before you print. Consider pull-printing as 30% of printing is never collected from the printer.
Reduce plastic waste
This evaluation of the question asked is often a stalling tactic—an effort to buy time while thinking. Occasionally, it might be a sincere response to an especially thoughtful question.
The problem is that if you say, “That’s a good question,” you’re elevating yourself above the questioner...
Throughout the world of business, dialogue involving Q+A has replaced speeches and presentations as the format of choice for sharing ideas. Executives are frequently interviewed on stage, job candidates confront a battery of
Are we so reliant on smartphones that they will ultimately change how our memories work (sometimes called digital amnesia)?
Apps that make money by taking our attention are designed to interrupt us.
Smartphone use can even change the brain.
Cortical thinning is a normal...
Start by looking through your trash and recycling bins to see what you're throwing out the most.
The success of any zero waste goal relies on the education and participation of communities and business organisations.
A landfill site or rubbish dump is a site for dumping waste materials.
In a 2021 survey, 80% felt that their memories were worse than before the pandemic. We are – still – shattered, not just by Covid-19, but also by the miserable national and global news cycle. Many of us self-soothe with distractions like social media. Meanwhile, endless scrolling can, at times, c...
The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy, which is where rubbish has no existence. Instead of discarding valuable resources, creating a circular economy proposes reusing items or sending them to be recycled so they can be used fully in the system.
Before smartphones, our heads would have held a cache of phone numbers and our memories would contain a cognitive map, built up over time, which would allow us to navigate – for smartphone users, that is no longer true.
Our brains and our smartphones form a complex web of interactions: the ...
A zero-waste lifestyle means you opt for sustainable and reusable alternatives and strive to send as little as possible to landfills.
This implies replacing as much as possible with reusable products, including clothing, food and drink packaging, and hygiene products, composting what you ca...

Incidental teaching involves teaching individuals in situations they're not trying to learn, such as a parent reading a historical novel to their child.
This form of teaching can be used in various situations, for example, as a naturalistic language intervention through adult-child...
You can use incidental learning by placing yourself in situations where you can learn without actively trying to learn.
For example, if you want to learn a new language but a course bores you, engage in activities such as video games and watching TV shows without actively trying to learn.
Benefits of incidental learning:
When we approach people with the mindset that they don’t know anything, we close all doors to learning something new. Only when we shut the door of our ego and be open to learning something new do we realize how much we don’t know.
As everyone has stories, each story comes with the knowledg...
The defining characteristic of incidental learning is the lack of intention to learn.
Ways incidental learning can vary. Incidental learning depends on:
Who are we? We are all nothing but the stories we tell ourselves. You are determined by the things you think and the words you say to yourself.
If you tell yourself that you are not an achiever, you can never become more productive, you are that person. If you tell yourself...
Most of us will be living our life as a template that is doing the same things over and over again in our work life. When we say we have 10 years of experience, is it 10 years of experience or 1 year of experience done 10 times over and over?
Doing the same thing over and over a yea...
We always wanted to achieve a lot in our life, do something that interest us for so many years. We want to do those that have been waiting for years.
With every passing year, we will be disappointed that why we have not started. But as time flies, it will leave us only more and more regret...
