Everything Is Crumbling An influential psychological theory, borne out in hundreds of experiments, may have just been debunked. How can so many scientists have been so wrong?

HEWN, No. 291
Ed Yong wrote about that viral video of the baby bear and mama bear making their way across a snow-covered cliff. You know the one — the one that some educators have said shows the bear had “grit.” Yong points out that the bears were being filmed by a drone, and the mother would never have made her baby take such a precarious path had it not been for the technological intrusion. Come to think of it, the whole thing — the ignorance and dismissal of trauma, the lack of attention to structural violence, the use of technology to shape behavior — is a perfect analogy for how “grit” gets wielded in schools.

At 34, She’s Gone From Goldman to Failed Artist to Startup Queen
https://ift.tt/2EVIbQx By the age of 34, Akiko Naka has already experienced more career-wise than most people do in a lifetime. She started by getting hired by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where she worked as an equity saleswoman. When she left that job, she tried to make it as a professional manga comic artist. When that didn’t work out, she landed a job at Facebook Inc.

And not content to leave it at that, she quit to establish her own company, a recruiting social network called Wantedly Inc. She took it public on the Tokyo Stock Exchange last year, and is one of the youngest women to head a Japanese listed company.

Grit: Bringing Passion Back
. I assume people who embrace grit want to know how they can build more grit in themselves and others. Without proper measurement of this construct, we won’t know if the needle on the dial is moving in the direction we want it to. We might even be misled to think that grit doesn’t matter, when in fact grit might matter quite a bit when the assessment better matches the definition.
