Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
What would we do if we no longer were compelled to work for income to survive? Would we all sit around in our pajamas everyday unwilling to lift a finger for anything? Why do people think that?
Perhaps they have this impression because after working for 8-10 hours each day enriching the capitalist owners of the company you work for, most people are pretty damn tired. They gave all their useful energy to someone else and now there is very little left.
Would anyone doubt that working a job you hate leads to “lazy” behavior?
In a world where no one was forced to work a job to survive, there would still be work. But we would be able to choose it based on our interests and the kind of experience we would like to have. We can spend the time raising our children, taking care of each other, growing wholesome foods, and making wholesome products. Once liberated, we will all do this.

F: But if you tame me, then we shall need each other.

In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. “Go out, talk to people, listen to people,” she says. “And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed.”

When I studied English at bears’ school, this part has been done very fast and I have always had problems to understand the differences. And, you know, there was so much snow outside to have fun with, so I did not spend much time to figure it out. More than talking I do like learning and having “make-me-smile” adventures (as you can view here 😉 ).

In April 2015 I found a good online resource and I am going to use it right now to find out all the passive verb forms concerning with different verbal tenses. Saying to be bearly happy would not be enough.
