Communication expenditure per household - the same services cost least in UK, most in Germany…

  • Mid contract price rises: In October, Ofcom issued guidance that consumers and small businesses should be allowed to leave their landline, mobile or broadband contracts without penalty if providers increase the cost of monthly subscription price deals.

that's not penalty..?

Per @barrywellman l'individualismo non è un difetto delle reti sociali online. Ne è semmai la cifra fondamentale. @MichelaEremita @TwLuciaM

per @ barrywellman individualism is not a defect of online social networks. It is rather the key figure

@tonnet @feedly Do you think it's more complicated than the fact that it's hard for teachers to relinquish control?

only that it's hard for admin, school board, dept of Ed... money managers et al.. parents... to relinquish control...

Krishnamurti speaks to all..

The day is beautiful. I am healthy and loved. I am aware enough to appreciate it all. Life is good.

@EvidenceElf @irasocol have you looked at the individual items on the Grit scales? I find it disconcerting, too.

Sorry @EvidenceElf the more I look into Angela Duckworth, the more disturbed I its ugly colonialist stuff

s Galton (1892) suggested, the inclination to pursue especially challenging aims over months, years, and even decades is distinct from the capacity to resist “the hourly temptations,” pursuits which bring momentary pleasure but are immediately regretted

oh my.. only because we've never set someone (in our test/research) group free long enough... and/or we've never let the goal be 100% curiosity/person/gut driven..

meaning... truly starts from persons gut... with option to change mind 24/7..
the it is me ness..

perhaps it would blow you away... but am thinking (via Krishnamurti et al). invisible to the eye.. in need of x d glasses... no doubt...

ie:to adults pushing all this.... how long does your "grit". self-control" last while listening to seemingly nothing....?

there's never nothing going on....
lets listen for that... no...?

we prototyped this intensive... year 1and 2 of lab...

Grit is the tendency to sustain interest in and effort toward very long-term goals

via who...?

unless long term goal is yourself... can't imagine it being sustainable...

Self-control is the voluntary regulation of behavioral, emotional, and attentional impulses in the presence of momentarily gratifying temptations or diversions.

my guess 99% ish people don't believe self control is voluntary... meaning... most people don't believe it's legal to think for themselves...

ie: I would venture to say I've been pretty self controlled my whole life... but not till age 45 sh... did I start deciding what/how/why to do... things.
very sad.
I can't keep on perpetuating that.. it's like I did 45 yrs of dis service...
all the while thinking I was making people happy...

You know what would be creepier than growling robots? Viruses.

At the end of the day, people who tap into their deep intrinsic motivations are much more (PDF) likely to succeed on long-term projects and hit loftier goals than those who are powered by the praise of others. Focus on achieving your vision first, and you’ll be more visible than you can imagine.
