On this edition of Parallax Views, the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche famously declared "God is Dead". In doing so Nietzsche not necessarily celebrating the triumph of atheism, but rather raising the question of what comes next for society once religion is replaced by secularism. How do we make sense of things and find meaning in a secular world? In his new book The Universe Is On Our Side: Restoring Faith in American Public Life, Bruce Ledewitz, Professor of Law at Duquesne University Law School, attempts to tackle that question. He joins us on the first segment of the show to discuss the decline in trust of public institutions; the process theology of Alfred North Whitehead (and process theology popularizer Dr. David Ray Griffin); Jesuit theologian Bernard Lonergan's question "Is the universe on our side?"; the British philosopher John Gray and the idea that "no, the universe is not on our side", postmodernism; science as a social activity; the secularism of American Christianity; New Atheism and the failings of it; Nietzsche and the death of God as a catastrophe (even if it is true); the incompatibility of a wonder-working God in a secular world; making clear that Bruce's book is not an attack on those who have religious faith; the post-truth age; a lack of belief in the future; Martin Luther King's "the arc of the universe bends towards justice" quote; the Enlightenment and the mechanistic, materialistic worldview; David Hume and the idea that we can only gain knowledge through the senses; Carl Sagan and the Pale Blue Dot; and much, much more! In the second segment of the show, the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft's Ben Freeman & Nick Cleveland-Stout join us to discuss their recent piece at The Intercept entitled "Until Ukraine, Russia Lobbyists Successfully Blunted Sanctions After Foreign Adventurism". We also discuss their upcoming report on Ukraine lobbying in Washington, D.C., the Foreign Agent Registration Act, the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, the public relations firm known as Ketchum, the need for transparency when it comes to foreign lobbying efforts, and much, much more!

The New American Nightmare with Doug Casey What lies ahead for the global financial markets and freedom in the US? Best-selling author, world-renowned speculator, and brilliant libertarian philosopher Doug Casey returns to the Outer Limits of Inner Truth. Casey offers his perspectives on the philosophies of Martin Armstrong, Jeff Berwick, and Larken Rose to name a few. Casey also discusses the new nightmare that we are apparently all in the midst of walking into (and what people who love free speech can do about it).. Doug Casey has garnered a well-earned reputation for his erudite (and often controversial) insights into politics, economics, and investment markets. Doug is widely respected as one of the preeminent authorities on “rational speculation,” especially in the high-potential natural resource sector. Doug wrote the book on profiting from periods of economic turmoil: his book Crisis Investing spent weeks as #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and became the best-selling financial book of 1980 with 438,640 copies sold; surpassing big-caliber names, like Free to Choose by Milton Friedman, The Real War by Richard Nixon, and Cosmos by Carl Sagan. He has been a featured guest on hundreds of radio and TV shows, including David Letterman, Merv Griffin, Charlie Rose, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin, Maury Povich, NBC News, and CNN; has been the topic of numerous features in periodicals such as Time, Forbes, People, and the Washington Post; and is a regular keynote speaker at FreedomFest, the world's largest gathering of free minds. Doug has lived in 10 countries and visited over 175. He currently spends most of his time in Argentina and Uruguay, and traveling to various dysfunctional hellholes. Today you're most likely to find him at La Estancia de Cafayate, an oasis tucked away in the high red mountains outside Salta, Argentina. Cafayate most resembles the isolating beauty of Bryce Canyon, Utah combined with the lush vineyards of Napa Valley. Residents enjoy economic and social freedoms not found in the US and some of the best wine and golf on the planet.

Conhecido pedagogo e educador, José Pacheco é fundador de alguns dos projetos mais icónicos e controversos da educação mundial como Escola da Ponte e Escola Projeto Âncora. Convidado assíduo de Escolas em todo o mundo, as suas palestras em Ted Talks já foram vistas por mais de meio milhão de pessoas, sendo uma das individualidades mais prestigiadas no mundo da educação. Hoje é Cofundador e Coordenador Pedagógico da Open Learning School, aquela que considera a única escola do Séc. XXI. -> Apoie este projecto e faça parte da comunidade de mecenas do 45 Graus em: 45graus.parafuso.net/apoiar -> Livro «Política a 45 Graus». _______________ Índice da conversa (usar marcadores HH:MM para avançar no episódio): (03:11) Apresentação do tema e convidado (07:58) Início da conversa: o que esta mal na escola de hoje? (21:20) Porque não devemos usar testes para avaliar conhecimento? (30:43) Como é a experiência concreta de um aluno na escola aberta? Paulo Freire: “'Educação não transforma o mundo. Educação muda pessoas. Pessoas transformam o mundo” (43:03) Por que é essencial integrar a família? | Joseph Lancaster (educador) Movimento Escola Montessori (53:47) Porque é tão difícil mudar o modelo de ensino? | João Costa (ministro da educação) | Autonomia das escolas (1:03:44) Não faz sentido dividirmos a educação em ciclos? (1:09:54) “As escolas são cemitérios de talentos” | TED talk “Do schools kill creativity? | Sir Ken Robinson” | MC Soffia (rapper), aluna do Projeto Âncora no Brasil | André Mesquita (guarda-redes) (1:16:11) Qual deve ser o papel da tutela no ensino do século XXI? (1:20:44) A competição entre alunos é algo necessariamente mau? (1:25:51) Andamos a ensinar coisas inúteis? (1:39:39) Qual é o papel do professor em transmitir conhecimento? _______________ A escola é um caso curioso, porque é provavelmente a instituição que menos se alterou nos últimos séculos. A vida em sociedade mudou, a política mudou, os nossos valores alteraram-se, mas a escola é ainda essencialmente aquilo que era há 200 anos. É uma instituição pensada para o mundo da revolução industrial; aliás, está pensada, em muitos aspectos, como uma fábrica.  Estas características foram-na tornando crescentemente inadaptada às sociedades modernas, e esse desfasamento foi ficando cada vez mais claro à medida que a ciência e a experiência no terreno de alguns pedagogos mais dados à experimentação foram mostrando que as crianças não são máquinas, mas sim são seres humanos, com emoções e potencial criativo, e, sobretudo, com características individuais e ritmos de aprendizagem diferentes que a escola tem de ter em consideração.  Foram surgindo, por isso, já desde o início do século passado, um conjunto de movimentos pedagógicos -- diferentes mas que têm em comum o facto de proporem uma mudança na escola; movimentos como a Escola Moderna, o método Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio Emilia e também, mais recentemente, o método desenvolvido pelo convidado deste episódio, José Pacheco, que este começou por implementar na Escola da Ponte no final dos anos 1970s, que depois levou para o Brasil, em projectos como a Escola Projeto Âncora e a Escola Aberta de São Paulo; e que está agora a lançar de novo em Portugal, desta vez na Open Learning School. A Escola da Ponte, em Santo Tirso, tornou-se na altura muito conhecida porque, apesar de estar localizada numa zona geográfica desprivilegiada, e apesar (ou por causa) do método de ensino alternativo que usava, conseguiu levar os seus alunos a bons resultados nos exames a nível nacional.  Mas, perguntam vocês: em que consiste exactamente este método alternativo que José Pacheco propõe?  A pedagogia da escola aberta tem várias diferenças importantes face ao ensino tradicional -- algumas comuns a outras metodologias alternativas, hoje já implementadas em várias escolas (embora ainda um nicho), outras verdadeiramente distintivas e, sobretudo, revolucionárias face à escola que conhecemos. É uma abordagem que, como outras, reconhece a individualidade dos alunos e estimula-os a aprender por si, autonomamente, seguindo a sua curiosidade e necessidades, e em que a família e a comunidade têm um papel activo. Mas vai mais longe. É uma escola em que não há salas de aula, não há horários, não há sequer turmas, os alunos estão todos misturados (não estão divididos por anos, nem sequer por ciclos!). E, mais importante, não há sequer propriamente professores (há tutores), nem há matéria pré-definida a aprender: os alunos decidem o que aprender, com base nas suas necessidades e o tutor não é visto como quem mais sabe, mas sim como quem orienta e guia o jovem para descobrir e assim crescer. Outra característica distintiva -- e controversa -- deste sistema é que não há testes: avalia-se apenas se o aluno conseguiu aprender determinada competência registando provas concretas dessa aprendizagem.  O método que José Pacheco defende implicaria, assim, uma verdadeira revolução no ensino. Durante esta hora e meia de conversa, discutimos vários dos aspectos que a metodologia da escola aberta propõe. Claro que, como dizia o grande cientista Carl Sagan, "alegações extraordinárias requerem provas extraordinárias”. Por isso, tentei discutir criticamente as propostas do convidado -- sobretudo as mais disruptivas, desde a ausência de testes ao facto de os alunos terem total autonomia sobre o que aprendem. E, no global, há algo que me faz suspeitar que a escola actual, com os aspectos obsoletos que evidentemente tem, talvez não seja assim tão fácil de substituir: é que apesar de modelos alternativos como o do convidado já existirem há mais de 100 anos, a verdade é que estes métodos ainda não conseguiram ser implementados em larga escala. Seja qual for o nosso grau de cepticismo em relação a esta abordagem há, no entanto, duas coisas certas. Primeiro, esta é uma conversa que dá que pensar e nos leva a olhar com outros olhos para a maneira como o ensino funciona. Segundo, como vão ver, José Pacheco é mais do que alguém com ideias interessantes sobre o ensino e a educação -- é um contador de histórias nato e um homem com poesia na ponta da língua.  _______________ Obrigado aos mecenas do podcast: Julie Piccini, Ana Raquel Guimarães Galaró family, José Luís Malaquias, Francisco Hermenegildo, Nuno Costa, Abílio Silva, Salvador Cunha, Bruno Heleno, António llms, Helena Monteiro, BFDC, Pedro Lima Ferreira, Miguel van Uden, João Ribeiro, Nuno e Ana, João Baltazar, Miguel Marques, Corto Lemos, Carlos Martins, Tiago Leite Tomás Costa, Rita Sá Marques, Geoffrey Marcelino, Luis, Maria Pimentel, Rui Amorim, RB, Pedro Frois Costa, Gabriel Sousa, Mário Lourenço, Filipe Bento Caires, Diogo Sampaio Viana, Tiago Taveira, Ricardo Leitão, Pedro B.

The Seafaring Life Of ‘Modern-Day Captain Nemo,' Robert Ballard In 1985, oceanographer Robert Ballard was sent on a secret deep-sea search operative with a very specific mission: to seek two sunken nuclear submarines. Ballard, who by then had explored the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and helped design deep-sea research submersibles, was assigned by the U.S. Navy to investigate and take images of the U.S.S. Thresher and U.S.S. Scorpion. But locating these two wreckages wouldn't bring him to fame—instead, it was another watery grave he would find along the way. After he located the two subs, Ballard had time left in the mission to satiate a hunt he had begun nearly a decade prior: He discovered the R.M.S. Titanic, which sank into the North Atlantic 110 years ago. While the Titanic might be his most publicized finding, the famed marine archaeologist has adventured beneath the waves on more than 150 expeditions that have broadened our understanding of the oceans and the planet. “We think there's probably more history in the deep sea than all of the museums of the world combined—and we're only now opening those doors to those museums,” he says. Ballard's recorded the activity of hydrothermal vents, the ecology of hot springs on the ocean floor, and the diversity of incredible marine creatures. In excerpts from two conversations in the Science Friday archives (originally recorded in 2000 and 2009), Ballard describes the 1985 expedition in which he discovered the wreck of the Titanic. He also discusses the value of combining the efforts of oceanographers, engineers, and social scientists to study the world's deep oceans. Plus, Ballard elaborates on his belief that some undersea finds should be left preserved and protected, and his work in expanding access to ocean research via telepresence and computer links.   Meet The Drag Artists Who Are Making Science More Accessible Each generation has had science communicators who brought a sometimes stuffy, siloed subject into homes, inspiring minds young and old. Scientists like Don Herbert, Carl Sagan, and Bill Nye are classic examples. But our modern age of social media has brought more diverse communicators into the forefront of science communication, including the wild, wonderful world of STEM drag stars. These are queer folk who mix the flashy fashions of the drag world with science education. Some, like Kyne, use TikTok as a medium to teach concepts like math. Others, like Pattie Gonia, use drag to attract more people to the great outdoors. The accessibility of the internet has made these personalities available to a wide audience. Kyne and Pattie Gonia join Ira to talk about the magic drag can bring to science education, and why they think the future of SciComm looks more diverse than the past. This segment originally aired on February 11, 2022.  Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

Micah A. Hanks is a full-time journalist, radio personality, author and investigator of the unexplained. Since an early age, he has been fascinated with strange mysteries and "Fortean phenomena," a field of study named for the pioneering researcher of all-things-strange, Charles Fort. Hanks' exposure to Fort's work, as well as the later writings of personalities such as zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson, cosmologist Carl Sagan, and several others helped establish an open minded-but inherently skeptical-approach to studying the unexplained, which Hanks maintains and continues to cultivate today, much like his numerous influences of past decades. Throughout his many years studying the world's mysteries, Hanks has visited a number of places collecting information about not only aliens and UFOs, but also cultural data, folklore, and reports of strange creatures like Sasquatch. From steep mountain passes in remote parts of Montana, to the rolling valleys where Ohio's "Grassman" is said to trudge, Hanks has made a lifestyle of pursuing mysteries, often right to their sources. He also spent a number of years working with various scientists, historians, and film crews, particularly fellow researcher and friend Joshua P. Warren, attempting to solve the mystery of the Brown Mountain Lights. These strange "ghost lights" represent an atmospheric phenomenon specific to Western North Carolina, likened by many to be ufological in nature. His interest in the region and its many mysteries, as well as his ever-evolving methods of inquiry pertaining to the UFO phenomenon at large, remains underway.

On the podcast this time, Steven and Sean are receiving otherworldly transmissions and venturing out into the farthest reaches of space in the 1997 film from Robert Zemeckis, Contact. This film does many things well, but the best thing it does is inspire deep thought and conversation. It demands that you consider the world outside of your microcosm. It asks you what it would be like if there was other life in the universe and what would that mean for humanity. To package those questions up in an admittedly lengthy film that features great drama, romance, and suspense is a master stroke. I guess the wonderful Carl Sagan and Zemeckis understood that you need spectacle to encourage people to consider substance. So, what would you do if we received a credible transmission from a star system many lightyears away from Earth? Would it be something to celebrate, something to investigate, or something to destroy… inate? At the very least, I think we can all agree that this film posits a spectacular premise. It encourages us to love each other and work together to move ourselves forward. That's pretty dang noble.

On this episode, Dr. Rich Blundell; art patron, recovering academic, and founder of oika.com joins me from literally the opposite end of the continent and we discussed the plight of humanity, the gift of consciousness, and how art can change the world. Dr. Blundell is well-spoken, educated and seems to have spent a lot of time constructing his unique set of beliefs. He attempts to bridge the gap between science and mysticism by bringing public awareness to ecological intelligence and explaining what it means and how we are all a part of it. Some of the topics we covered include: the limitations of modern science, phenomenology and the power of the lived experience, and why we should all start challenging our entrenched narratives and seeking novel ways of being.

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning
Author and Educational Consultant André Hedlund on ”A Voyage into the Learner's Universe: A Macro View of Neuroscience and SEL”

Have you ever wondered WHO exactly YOU are? We are more than our name, our job title or perhaps how we are viewed in our personal lives. Whatever part of the world you are listening to this podcast from, today's episode is going to stretch your mind, like it did mine, as we expand our field of view from our individual schools or workplaces to our cities, to go far outside of where we operate on a day-to-day basis to think on a different level than we usually think about ourselves, or those around us. We are going to use a brilliant article written by author, Chevening Alumnus (MSc in Psychology of Education--University of Bristol) and former National Geographic Learning Consultant, Andre Hedlund[i] called Learning Cosmos: A Voyage into the Learner's Universe[ii] to help take our imaginations on a trip, where we will “consider the multitude of principles, theories and frameworks that address learning, and compare (them) to the expanding universe. Different spheres, each one influencing the others.” Watch this interview on YouTube with visuals here https://youtu.be/wsJ8NpYawdM On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ How Andre Hedlund compared learning to the Cosmos for a Macro vs Micro view of learning. ✔︎ How the 6 SEL Competencies compare to the Cosmos and Larger Universe. ✔︎ How Andre took the most current and well-known educational frameworks and theories and mapped them to the Cosmos for a deeper look at learning. ✔︎ How looking at something from a new angle (Macro vs Micro) can give you a new perspective, solve problems, and open your eyes to new possibilities. Today Andre will look at neuroscience and psychology and try to bring together principles about cognition, emotion, attitudes and beliefs, motivation, learning design, and context (many of the topics we have been talking about on this podcast for the past 3 years) into an illustration that resembles the universe so we can see how we fit into our world, from a different point of view, and Andre's hope is that this “Learning Cosmos Angle can help students, teachers, schools, families and policymakers admire and reflect on the amazing universe surrounding our learners.” (Hedlund). Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning podcast, EPISODE #205, I'm Andrea Samadi, author and educator from Toronto, Canada, now in Arizona, and today's guest is an expert in Education, the Science of Learning, Neuroscience, Psychology, Pedagogy, and the Methodology Behind how we learn. If you are interested in neuroscience and learning, which I'm sure you are,  if you've been tuning into our podcast, I know this episode will expand your thinking, like it did mine, as we hear from Andre's perspective why neuroscience alone cannot tell us how we learn. We must look at psychology and education for these answers, but next, he takes it a step further with an empowering, mind-boggling thought. Imagine this if you will… “The Cosmos is within us. We are all made of star stuff. We are a way for the Universe to know itself.” –Astrophysicist, Carl Sagan[iii] This quote opens Andre's article, and it took me back to the day I was first introduced to this topic of neuroscience, before I knew how the brain and learning were connected. I had many questions. How on the earth (pun intended) is the learning connected to Cosmos? Wait, what is the Cosmos again? It's been a while since I studied the planets and I never really got into Star Trek or those out of space shows. What does it mean when he says “the cosmos is within us?” I've been wrapped up in the brain for the past few years and had to look up what exactly this means. The funny part of researching and coming up with some questions for Andre to help us to dive deeper into this topic, was that I shared on LinkedIn that I was looking forward to this interview, as I spent Friday night reading Andre's new book, The Owl Factor: Reframing Your Teaching Philosophy A Reflective and Practical Guide for Teachers and Trainers, and Greg Link, who I've mentioned before on this podcast, who took Stephen Covey's  7 Habits book to great heights, commented on the post and got me to think even harder about the questions I was going to come up with. I don't think there are any accidents in life, and when Andre caught Greg's attention, I felt like I had better dig deep into this topic and see if we can all reframe our teaching philosophy with this new perspective. Let's meet Andre Hedlund, and take this Voyage into the Learner's Universe.[iv] Welcome Andre, all the way from Brazil.  We do have a good number of listeners from your past of the world, and after reading your article, it really did make sense to me, showing me how someone in another country, can hold so much passion for this topic, (like I think I do) but with a different angle. Thank you very much for contacting me and sharing your work that I know will help us to all see things in a different way today. INTRO Q: So, this podcast is The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, as you know, and I clearly remember when we made the connection with Neuroscience and the SEL competencies that we talk about all the time on this podcast. How on the earth did you make the connection with learning and the cosmos? Q1: Where do we begin? What is the science of learning? What should we all know about how our genetics and epigenetics impact our learning? (for ourselves, our own children, and our students?). What does this mean for the future? Gene editing? Q2: I like the idea of looking at things from a different perspective to learn something new but I've got to say that using diagrams, or frameworks have been a key component for me to break down difficult concepts. Even Greg Link mentioned it to me when looking for ideas to promote my book to schools, and he asked me “are the concepts in your book clear like Covey's 7 Habits?” and it made me think of the importance of using frameworks or images to convey what I wanted to teach. So I picked these 6 SEL Competencies that we have been focused on throughout this podcast. How did you take ALL the theories and frameworks connected to learning and compare it to the Universe/Cosmos? What is the first competency that's important? Is it our SELF-AWARENESS (who we are), our identity? To me, you've put the self-worth or identity first, with The Four Pillars of Learning (attention, engagement, error feedback, and consolidation) (Dehaene 2020) which overlaps with the Engage, Build, Consolidate Framework (Paul Howard Jones 2018). 4 Pillars of Learning -How do these make us self-aware? Do you have examples or ideas to build on this? Then you compare the cognitive sphere to earth's conditions to support life (like the presence of liquid water or breathable air). Do you mean that self-awareness that comes with motivation, attitudes and beliefs, emotional and cognitive skills is integral for us, like water and air is on the planet? (Do I understand this correctly?) Q3: Is Self-regulation next? With the research on Emotional Intelligence by Salovey and Mayer (1990S) popularized by Daniel Goleman (1995), Emotion Regulation by James Gross and Ross Thompson and the Theory of Constructed Emotion (Lisa Feldman Barrett 2017). Then you compare our emotions to our planet's climate and say “our mood is like earth's weather.” Q4: Next is our attitudes and beliefs about learning (or how learning works)  that should include Metacognition, (thinking about thinking or learning how to learn), Growth Mindset (one's belief they can improve their intelligence through commitment and effort) and Self-Efficacy (one's ability to set and achieve goals). Q5: Motivation is important and must include autonomy, relatedness and competence. Daniel Pink believes what drives people is autonomy, mastery and purpose. Q6: Macrocosm vs Solar System Level? Earth and why it's perfect for life. Design our lessons so student's flourish. Flexible, active and desirable difficulties. Q7: Interstellar Level? Systems Theory (we just mentioned this with Joshua Freedman Interview). What impacts an individual's development. Q8: Environmental? Q9: Conclusion--What was your purpose/goal of creating this theory? What feedback have you received so far? Q10- What's next? Andrea closes this episode with her thoughts on how thinking "macro vs micro" can help us to look at things in a different way, like André did with education, to solve problems, create new ideas, and innovate.  FOLLOW ANDRÉ HEDLUND Twitter https://twitter.com/andrelshedlund  LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/andr%C3%A9-hedlund-msc-he-him-83411621/  Instagram https://www.instagram.com/andre_hedlund/?hl=en  Website https://edcrocks.com/ BIO: Andre Hedlund is a Chevening Alumnus (MSc in Psychology of Education - University of Bristol) and former National Geographic Learning Consultant and Materials Reviewer.

Esta es una muestra de "Cómo hacer una tarta de manzana desde el principio". La versión completa tiene una duración total de 14 h 48 min. Encuentra este audiolibro completo en https://bit.ly/comohacerunatartademanzana_audiolibroNarrado por: Óscar Vegas Naval Decía Carl Sagan que para hacer una tarta de manzana primero hay que crear el universo. Harry Cliff, prestigioso físico de la Universidad de Cambridge, emprende la búsqueda de la receta perfecta recogiendo los ingredientes a través del cosmos, en los núcleos de estrellas moribundas, y retrocediendo en el tiempo hasta la fracción de segundo inmediatamente posterior a la que todo se creó, para entender, entre otras muchas cosas, de dónde proviene la materia. Esta suculenta receta lo lleva del mayor laboratorio subterráneo del mundo, donde los científicos estudian el sol, al Gran Colisionador de Hadrones, en Suiza, donde se crea antimateria a diario. Un paseo por la historia de la física, la química y la astronomía, así como del recorrido que nos ha traído hasta nuestra comprensión actual del universo. En definitiva, uno de los viajes intelectuales más asombrosos que el ser humano ha sido capaz de emprender. La crítica ha dicho: «¿Cuál es el origen de todo? Harry Cliff tiene la capacidad de remangarse y responder a preguntas en apariencia filosóficas como esta. Una exploración fascinante sobre cómo hemos aprendido lo que es en realidad la materia, y el viaje que esta emprende desde el Big Bang, pasando por las explosiones estelares, hasta llegar a ti y a mí».SEAN CARROLL «Cliff sumerge a los lectores en el curioso y hermoso mundo del interior del átomo. Un libro asombroso, tan divertido como la Guía del autoestopista galáctico. Para todo aquel que quiera entender algunas de las preguntas científicas más importantes».Kirkus «Emocionante y revelador. Cliff describe ideas complejas de forma apasionante y accesible, y tiene la habilidad de hacer de la teoría algo divertido. Un viaje asombroso y entretenido que vale la pena saborear».Publishers Weekly «Escrito de manera amena y atractiva en la mejor tradición de Feynman y Sagan. Un auténtico page turner».JIM AL-KHALILI «Una mezcla perfecta de química, física, una pizca de astronomía y una gran cantidad de humor para obtener la receta de tarta de manzana más atractiva de todos los tiempos. Cliff hace un uso exquisito de las metáforas en esta magistral historia del conocimiento humano».Booklist «Adoro este libro divertido, ligero y escrito con suma belleza. Abarca con un rigor desenfadado desde el nacimiento de la química moderna hasta las últimas ideas en física de partículas. El mejor libro de este tipo que he leído. Brillante".JEFF FORSHAW, coautor de ¿Por qué E=mc2?© 2022, Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, S. A.

Massimo Polidoro"Geniale"13 lezioni che ho ricevuto da un mago leggendario sull'arte di vivere e pensareFeltrinelli Urrahttps://www.feltrinellieditore.it/Immaginate di poter trascorrere un anno intero fianco a fianco con un vero genio, di osservarlo all'opera, lavorarci insieme e imparare quanto più potete sul suo modo di pensare, ragionare, organizzarsi, affrontare i problemi, superare le difficoltà, escogitare progetti, trovare soluzioni…Massimo Polidoro ha avuto questa fortuna. A 18 anni, con una borsa di studio offertagli da Piero Angela, è partito per gli Stati Uniti diventando il primo allievo a tempo pieno di James Randi, noto come “The Amazing Randi”, illusionista di fama mondiale e campione della razionalità e del pensiero scientifico, omaggiato da figure del calibro di Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan e del premio Nobel Richard Feynman.L'esperienza accanto al genio è stata una straordinaria scuola di vita e una palestra intellettuale senza pari, che gli ha consegnato tra le mani una “cassetta degli attrezzi” indispensabili per potenziare le sue abilità mentali e per costruire la vita che sognava. Un passo dopo l'altro, l'autore ha imparato a pensare in modo lucido e critico, a coltivare la fiducia, a focalizzarsi, a riconoscere i propri limiti, a esplorare l'insolito e dare la caccia alle pseudo-verità. Ma ha soprattutto imparato l'arte di vivere con intelligenza e passione, coltivando la razionalità e nutrendo al tempo stesso un costante senso di meraviglia.Oggi, recuperando aneddoti di eventi fuori dal comune e storie illuminanti, ripercorre questa straordinaria esperienza, condividendo 13 fondamentali lezioni che ha appreso e che i lettori potranno applicare alla propria situazione.Un viaggio che non mancherà di istruire, sorprendere, illuminare, divertire e commuovere.Avete mai pensato che piega avrebbe potuto prendere la vostra vita se foste stati apprendisti di un autentico genio? Vi sarebbe piaciuto carpirne i segreti?Imparare a ragionare in maniera “geniale” non è questione di Q.I. sopra la media o di speciali poteri riservati a pochi eletti, ma di abitudini, scelte e atteggiamenti mentali e comportamentali alla portata di tutti.Massimo Polidoro, in questo libro denso di memoria e di gratitudine, traduce gli insegnamenti del suo maestro “incredibile” in 13 lezioni sulle potenzialità che ciascuno di noi può sviluppare per riuscire a vivere pienamente e con intelligenza.“Massimo Polidoro è come il compagno di scuola più brillante che ti aiuta con i compiti, ma con la particolarità che ti spiega la lezione meglio del professore.” Pif“Polidoro è eccellente! Riesce a capire al volo e a risolvere cose complicate, là dove gli altri solitamente falliscono.” Piero Angela“Un vero segugio. Se non siete di coloro che piangono quando gli rivelano che Babbo Natale non esiste, imparerete da lui molte storie divertenti e istruttive.” Umberto EcoMassimo Polidoro, giornalista, scrittore, docente universitario e divulgatore scientifico, è autore di oltre cinquanta libri e più di mille articoli pubblicati su “Focus” e diverse testate internazionali.Autore, conduttore e consulente di numerosi programmi televisivi, è una presenza fissa a Superquark accanto a Piero Angela.Noto per le sue indagini scientifiche su bufale e presunti misteri, ha co-fondato e dirige il CICAP (Comitato italiano per il controllo delle affermazioni sulle pseudoscienze), per il quale coordina anche l'organizzazione del CICAP Fest, festival scientifico con un'affluenza di oltre 25.000 persone a Padova. Ha insegnato Psicologia dell'insolito all'Università di Milano e insegna Comunicazione della scienza ai dottorandi dell'Università di Padova.Svolge una vivacissima attività sui social, con oltre 300.000 follower sulle diverse piattaforme, che accompagna a una serie di podcast di successo per Audible e molti altri progetti al suo attivo.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEascoltare fa pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

Humans from the earliest civilizations through today have craned their necks each night, using the stars to orient themselves in the large, strange world around them. Stargazing is a pursuit that continues to fascinate us: from Copernicus to Carl Sagan, astronomers throughout history have spent their lives trying to answer the biggest questions in the universe. Now, award-winning astronomer Emily Levesque shares the stories of modern-day stargazers in this new nonfiction release, the people willing to adventure across high mountaintops and to some of the most remote corners of the planet, all in the name of science. From the lonely quiet of midnight stargazing to tall tales of wild bears loose in the observatory, The Last Stargazers: The Enduring Story of Astronomy's Vanishing Explorers (Sourcebooks, 2021) is a love letter to astronomy and an affirmation of the crucial role that humans can and must play in the future of scientific discovery. In this sweeping work of narrative science, Levesque shows how astronomers in this scrappy and evolving field are going beyond the machines to infuse creativity and passion into the stars and space and inspires us all to peer skyward in pursuit of the universe's secrets.

The famous astronomer and educator Carl Sagan once said, “If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch you must first invent the universe.” What Sagan was pointing at is the fact that for us to really do anything from scratch, we have to understand the system in which we exist.The planet and all its inhabitants exists as a massive, complex system of interconnected systems that we don't always see. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has clearly shown us that public health is part of a global web, inextricably linked. On a smaller scale, the materials and energy that we use to build and operate our homes and cities rely on these natural interconnected ecosystems. Effortlessly spanning scales from the level of the planet, a vast forest or a single home, the science of Systems Ecology provides a powerful perspective and valuable set of tools that can inform skillful design and construction practices for homes, buildings and cities.How do natural ecosystems provide us with all that we need for our lives, homes and cities? What are the basic ingredients that are “cooked” in this recipe? Join Kristof as he interviews Miaomiao Hou and Dr. Bill Braham for a fast and furious dive into the infinite complexity of emergy. You'll never be able to un-hear this. We will unpack some of the terms and concepts needed to unlock this powerful, versatile, quantitative way to understand what matters most when it comes to resources and energy, and why. Along the way we will learn about energy that remembers where it comes from and the layers of transformations it goes through along the way to us, so we can make better decisions on how to use it wisely.
