1. A new #design hero for me is Chuck Harrison, one of the first black designers, and executives (1961), in American corporate history. He spent much of his career at Sears, and designed 100s of well known objects, some of which you probably know.
2. He redesigned the View-master from a bland, clumsy device, to something kids and adults loved to hold and use.
3. He developed the idea to make garbage cans out of plastic (much quieter when the garbagemen emptied them at 5am), and they stackable, easy to ship and store.

The Kyoto centre:
1. Provides international mediation facilities
2. Is a centre for mediation research and education

On the verge of opening a new similar centre in Tokyo.

Laila T Ollapally - unless mediation is as lucrative as other forms of dispute resolution, we're not going to attract the best candidates.

THE KEY QUESTION at the nub of the fuss re: #Brexit, the #backstop & @BorderIrish is this:
What the heck has the European Union got to do with #peace here❓

Well, the ANSWER is, when all's said & done, pretty simple.

It’s about the British-Irish relationship.

1/
This was acknowledged by the EU itself 35yrs ago in the Haagerup Report on resolving the conflict.

I'll explain this now by summarising my paper from Cooperation&Conflict @SAGECQPolitics.

[& you can see the Report here. Hurrah for @CAINWebService] 👉
2/
111 people were killed in 1981.
In May 1981, @EuroParl_EN passed a Resolution recognising the EU had ‘no competence to make proposals for changes in the Constitution of N.Ireland’.

110 were killed in 1982.
The Troubles were raging. And there was little prospect of resolution.

1 - When you take up #responsibility, a cognitive shift happens in you. Your mental setup changes.
2 - For example, if you work eight hours in your office just following orders you will feel dull and tired. Instead, if you take up responsibility and #initiative, that same eight hours will become much easier and more enjoyable.

Dear Twitter: Please help me reach my goal of 1M Retweets to extend hope, encouragement, motivation, confidence, and inspiration to all who struggle with a mental disorder, all underprivileged youth across America, and all adults 1/ #confidence
who consider themselves counted out by society and believe they can never accomplish anything worthwhile. This story is for you! 👉I was ushered from under center, out of my starting QB position, out of my junior yr. in high school and thrown into a prison cell. #inspiration /2
While my classmates walked the stage I was walking the prison yard shocked from hearing the news of my mother's untimely death. Suffering from Bipolar, I couldn't understand it all and no longer wanted to live. My suicidal tendencies evolved and I resolved to a life of /3

1/ I would like to share my story of my #mentalillness (Bipolar Disorder II) and how I deal with it, to show that mental illness is everywhere, and that someone can have a mental illness and be successful. I hope this story can empower someone and help reduce the stigma.
2/ I am a successful PhD student in Chemistry. I am happy, I have travelled the world, I have lived abroad for a year, I am a varsity Squash athlete, I have a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Chemistry. But my biggest success: doing all this while managing a mental illness.
3/ A few weeks ago, I woke up and it took me over an hour to get out of bed. After a day of achieving little at work, I went straight home. I did not feel like my usual after-work walk, I did not want to play squash, I did not want to read a book. I had no energy.

#INSPIRATION: Can't talk about #ALIEN the movie without crediting one of the most underrated designer giant in the field: Ron Cobb. His influence in the mechanical design and overall aesthetic is immense and go way beyond the movie itself.
more of Ron Cobb designs for the Nostromo
you can start to recognize some of the shapes lines of the Nostromo here, the cramped cockpit design, or the bow window where ash supervises the expedition.

2. & directly cause a storm thousands of miles away, the lesson is powerful. The repercussions of our actions, both spiritual and physical, are far more complex than we can fathom. A sharp or snarky remark can be the arrow that pierces a person’s self-esteem.
3. A seemingly small, kind comment or good deed can be the key that unlocks another’s untapped strength. Every thought, word, and action, is like a pebble cast into the sea, causing immeasurable ripple effects. You may think to yourself, “But I’m just 1 out of 7 billion people?

#Inspiration comes in all forms and from places we expect the least. And no, this is not a rule but an experience. Only when you open your mind to learn, the best lessons come.
#Humility is not a very prized value in today’s world and yet, when we hear such stories, we have to admit that some of the most valuable lessons of life come from extremely humble people who view work as work – not big or small.
No #work is big and no work is small.
It is the manner in which it is executed that makes it big or small.

#ExecuteWell

1) Hard times are often blessings in disguise. Let go and let life strengthen you. No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going. This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year. Truth be told,
2) sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your spirit needs most. Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it. So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labeled “Thank You.''

Things I learned today, a short thread, by Kirsty. 💁🏻‍♀️

2. Don't be a robot, be human 🤖
Humans are cool. (sub note: @helenalangdon will steal your stapler given the tiniest window of opportunity)

1) We are each a spark of the Divine. Worthy as ever. And yet, sometimes we lose sight of our inherent value. That inner voice can become muffled by the narratives we play over and over in our mind. What are the messages that wear us down? In this moment, let’s challenge them.
2) What has caused us to forget that we are deserving? In this moment, let’s remind ourselves that our capacity for growth and strength is incredible. How can we reframe our experiences and begin viewing our lives from a more elevated perspective?
3) Are we ready to stop buying into old thoughts patterns and start trusting more empowering ones? Know this – there is so much more in store for you. The more we begin to believe this, with God’s help, the sooner we will receive what we hope, pray, and strive for. #believe
