אריק אינשטיין - אני ואתה



posted on fb by Yaacov

"אני ואתה נשנה את העולם" הוא חלק ממני...
והיה לי עצוב לקרוא את מילים שהוסיף אריק אינשטיין לשיר -
"אני ואתה לא שיננו שום דבר..." (עבור ידיעות אחרונות)
אז אריק אני מעוניין להפנות אותך לנאום קבלת הנובל של ויסלבה שימבורסקה שבו היא מתארת שיחה בדיונית אפשרית עם קהלת. 
"אין כל חדש תחת השמש" – כך כתבת, קהלת, אבל אתה עצמך נולדת חדש תחת השמש. ושיר שיצרת גם הוא חדש תחת השמש, מכיוון שאיש לא כתבו לפניך. וכל קוראיך גם הם חדשים תחת השמש, שהרי מי שחיו לפניך לא יכולים היו לקרוא את שירך. והברוש הזה תחתיו אתה יושב לא צמח מאז שחר הימים. הוא נוצר באמצעות ברוש אחר הדומה לשלך, אבל איננו זהה לו. וקהלת, הייתי רוצה גם לשאול אותך מהו הדבר החדש תחת השמש שאתה עובד עליו? תוספת למחשבות שכבר הבעת? או אולי אתה מתפתה עכשיו לסתור חלק מהן? ביצירתך המוקדמת הבעת שמחה – אז מה אם היא חולפת? אולי שירך החדש תחת השמש יהיה על השמחה? כבר רשמת רשימות, יש לך טיוטות? אני לא חושבת שתאמר ´כתבתי הכל, אין לי עוד דבר להוסיף´. אין משורר בעולם שיכול לומר זאת, ופחות מכולם משורר דגול כמוך"...
והשורה שאני הייתי מוסיף..."אני ואתה משנים את העולם", 
שבת שלום

You and I will change the world " is a part of me ...
And I was sad to read the words Arik Einstein song added -
"Me and you are not memorized anything ... " ( For latest news )
So Eric , I want to refer you to a speech receiving the Nobel Wislawa Szymborska in which she describes a fictional conversation possible with Ecclesiastes .
" There is nothing new under the sun " - so wrote , Ecclesiastes , but you yourself were born new under the sun . And a song you've created is also new under the sun , because no one wrote you. And all your readers are also new under the sun , for those who lived before you could not have read the thigh. And cypress that sits underneath you did not grow since the dawn of time. It was created using another cypress similar to yours , but not identical . And Ecclesiastes , I'd like to ask you what new thing under the sun you're working on ? Addition already expressing thoughts ? Or maybe you're tempted now to refute some of them ? Early expression of joy in your work - so what if it passes ? Maybe the new shuffled under the sun will be the joy ? Been making notes , you have drafts ? I do not think you say ' I wrote everything, nothing further to add . No poet in the world can say this, least of all a great poet like you " ...
And the line I would add ... "Me and you change the world "

Shabbat Shalom

We find that it's pretty difficult to engage in critical reflection when we're in a “selling” and “persuasion” mode—that is, the mode we're often in when we go to social innovation conferences, meet funders, and reach out to potential partners and colleagues.

@bonstewart @zbpipe @paulallison Some interesting insights into what some kids think about blogging here- clueaspace.blogspot.sg/2013/02/what-d…


Blogging is a great way to share thoughts and ideas in an open and productive manner but is not an important part of English class because one big reason is that often, seeing that blogging is currently optional and not homework, kids just don't have time to do things like blog. Homework is also a big interference in the time kids would have to blog because after coming home late from an activity and having over an hour of work to do, blogging is just not possible. Miles

Online confidence can turn a kids life around. When a kid cannot be accepted into a certain type of environment or cannot express himself to anyone. He turns to online writing. Brendan

The New Rules Of Disruptionp.ost.im/Rymc9d

The truth is that disruption is largely a function of group dynamics and has little to do with any mysterious powers.  In effect, everyone is a potential influencer.  So we’re much better off seeking out those who are likely to be receptive and passionate about our idea, rather than wasting time and effort seeking out mysterious “Influentials”.

We can no longer pretend that our charts and diagrams amount to anything more than wish lists.  In a connected world, things have a way of self organizing.

Yet in the age of disruption, planning is not as effective.  Technology moves too fast, new connections form and lines between industries blur or disappear altogether.  A new disruptive competitor can emerge with blazing speed.  It’s not even a question of coming up with the right answers anymore, coming up with the right questions is hard enough.
The upshot is that we need to take a more Bayesian approach to strategy where we are no longer concerned with predicting the future and “being right,” but rather becoming less wrong over time.  Stability and certainty have become dangerous pipe dreams, we need to react to an increasingly complex world in real time.
And so, the formula for disruption is not necessarily becoming smarter, but becoming more aware and creating organizations that can adapt in real time.

Indeed, I can run further and faster on a paved and well-set road. But I can run deeper when my foundation isn’t fully set. Where each step matters. Where I cannot coast or place my being into autopilot, where I can feel the intensity and effort of each footprint left as a remnant on the shores. Where the shifting sands make each new movement less predictable. Sometimes too, in a life, it feels as though we need a more solid foundation in order to start moving forward and gain the most traction.
But that is rarely the case.

Africa's Technological Potential: The Next Frontier? bit.ly/1fGt5Kv #StartupBusAfrica via@risingvoices

Kampala, they visited KampaBits, a school teaching underprivileged youths web design, print design and web development and the students were more than grateful for the ideas and encouragement the AHT team brought to them.
A similar venture is the Startup Bus Africa. 15 African and 15 international entrepreneurs engaged in an entrepreneurial road trip to conceive ideas and establish the conditions for their implementation. The bus travelled for the first time in Africa from the 18th till the 22nd of November, from Harare in Zimbabwe to Cape Town, through Johannesburg and Bloemfontein in South Africa. Participants were coders (50%), designers (25%) and business developers (25%) all focused on the areas of mobile, healthcare and energy. One of the many outcomes of the bus trip was the platformSterio.Me, which engages young rural African learners through a simple, teacher-generated phone-call to reinforce learning outside the classroom. They also pitched to investors along the way.
The continent has an undeniable potential in high technology but a distinctive framework for Africa’s technological development smoothly integrating both the old and new cultures has yet to be established

Three small ways tenured faculty can help adjuncts; add your own suggestions in the comments!chronicle.com/article/The-Lo… #highered @Adjuncts

spot on holt quote..

we know exactly what to do..

and..
we can do it.
it will work..

Dorothy Day once observed that we could solve the homeless problem in America if every family simply took in one extra person. We can't quite solve the adjunct problem in the same way; there aren't enough full-time jobs for all of the adjuncts who want one. But we can at least help the adjuncts on our campuses bulk up their job files, and we can take the time to demonstrate an interest in their work and careers.

... comparing apples to oranges..

live with homeless..
to have their own full pay job....

?......


open committee membership is closer to first example..

and just imagine the solutions   suggestions we are missing with closed input...


benefits return to college that pays the bill...?

oh my.

Pope Francis: Capitalism is “a new tyranny”

Pope Francis: Capitalism is “a new tyranny”

In this context, some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting. To sustain a lifestyle which excludes others, or to sustain enthusiasm for that selfish ideal, a globalization of indifference has developed. Almost without being aware of it, we end up being incapable of feeling compassion at the outcry of the poor, weeping for other people’s pain, and feeling a need to help them, as though all this were someone else’s responsibility and not our own. The culture of prosperity deadens us; we are thrilled if the market offers us something new to purchase; and in the meantime all those lives stunted for lack of opportunity seem a mere spectacle; they fail to move us.
