Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

GMOs are organisms that have altered genetic material, and this genetic alteration does not occur naturally.

Modern biotechnology allows selected individual genes to be transfered from one organism to another even between nonrelated species.

The food that is produced using GMOs are referred to as Genetically Modified Food.

Feeling out of place

So many people have been involuntarily displaced by the pandemic or could be stuck in living situations they would not choose for themselves.

But this upheaval could also give an opportunity. Many have now realised that various jobs can be done remotely, meaning we might have more geographic flexibility than before. This year could be a chance for you to move to the place where your heart is.

Find the Place You Love. Then Move There.

Isaac  Asimov

It is changing, continuing, and inevitable change that is the dominant factor in society today. Science fiction may seem trivial to blind critics and philosophers of today but in its essence, it is needed for our own salvation.

Stages of moral development

Lawrence Kohlberg questioned why children differed in their ethical judgements. They think more in terms of black and white, or egocentric, or rational.

In an experiment, Kohlberg gave children open-ended questions to explain their answers. From this, he identified three stages of moral development:

  • Pre-conventional stage. This ego-centric stage seeks pleasure and wants to avoid pain. "Good" is defined as whatever is beneficial to oneself, and "bad" is anything that will cause punishment.
  • Conventional stage. A sense of social belonging marks this stage. Approval is seen as a reward, and behaviour is adjusted to please others. The desire to fit in is motivating good behaviour.
  • Post-conventional stage. There is more self-reflection and moral reasoning. Principled behaviour is more important than blind obedience.

How morally developed are you?

Being Grateful For Your Job
  • In the 2020 debacle in terms of job and income loss, people who are employed feel a certain pressure to be grateful for it, and even have a measure of real gratitude. Many are thankful that they are still hired, still getting paid every month.
  • Jobs provided post-pandemic seem prized, with candidates in awe of the fact that they are being considered, shortlisted and interviewed, when jobs are so scarce.
  • While being grateful for what we have is a positive emotion with real benefits, there is a downside to this gratefulness, as it makes a person willing to endure unwelcome situations at work.

Should you be grateful for a job?

Our Brain Needs A Filter

We all have thoughts and ideas floating in our minds, and need to review our ideas, deciding which of them have merit and can be brought to the world.

If there is no filter installed in our minds that only lets the approved ones through, we end up acting out stuff that could lead to disastrous outcomes.

How To Make Progress When You Are Terrified

By definition, popular culture, or "pop" culture, requires the masses to be engaged in practising and consuming culture, thereby making it popular.
There are three significant popular-culture markers:

  • Wedding ceremonies began traditions based on religious tenets and quickly became part of society.
  • Music performed from written scores. Renaissance composers committed music to paper, making it possible for others to perform it.
  • Fashion styles took clothing beyond functionality.

The Cheerleader Effect

A profile picture with friends seems to convey that we are social and well-liked. Group shots also seem to be appealing to others due to another factor known as the Cheerleader Effect.

Our profile pictures on social media are mostly selfies, headshots or pics of our loved ones. We don’t usually put up group pictures on display, but it might be a good idea.
