What is a TED Fellowship and Why Did I Apply Today?

TED is committed to helping people spread big ideas worth spreading, such as “transforming respect–being valued–from something some people have to be awarded or earn to something every human should be entitled to not just for humane reasons, but also to solve a number of economic, social, and environmental challenges.”

“The Maid Who Mapped the Stars”

More proof we never know from where or from whom big ideas will spring forth and change the world for the better.

Williamina Fleming was just supposed to help the director of the Harvard Observatory with household tasks. Instead, she changed the course of astronomy.

Happy Civic Holiday in Canada!

For those of us who celebrate any holiday because holidays can help re-energize us, Happy Civic Holiday! For those who call the day something else or may not celebrate, to each their own, but best wishes nonetheless!

As for me, this long weekend has been all about packing for the much-desired move out of the women’s shelter into my own private, quiet, clean studio/bachelor apartment close to supportive, loving family. Hopefully the relocation to the small community by the water will happen early next week. But for now, most of the packing is done and a busy week lies ahead. For today though, my TED Fellowship application awaits completion and another remote/online job advertisement beckons.

What Jealousy Really Is

I know jealousy is usually associated with green, but I think red works now because “red flag” is the buzz word for such things these days. That’s why I say jealousy is the red flag that reveals we are not living up to our potential.
