How long should your website last?
Websites used to be simple. "Now we have 'platforms', a term that can be used very broadly but which I’ll use here to describe the ecosystem of content, user experience, editor interface and associated tools like authorization, analytics, transactions and their delivery and distribution methods.
"These platforms can be humongous applications with many tentacles and different vintages of tech and integrations, or it could be something as simple as a WordPress blog. But if it’s a content platform, it’s got those three core layers: content storage, content management interface, and forward-facing user experience.
"Each of these layers is a dependency on the other ..."

Why close encounters with animals soothe us
Compton Jr. Posse in Los Angeles, which brings inner-city children and horses together, reveals the therapeutic power of communing with fellow sentient beings.

"Something extraordinary occurs when we’re in the presence of a fellow sentient being. When we let go of language’s tacit conceptual constraints and judgments, we allow ourselves a kind of time travel toward our own inner animal. Science is revealing the ways that the physiology of our psychology can be found across species: the common neuronal structures and attendant nerve wirings that we share in varying measures with a startling array of both vertebrates and invertebrates, including fellow primates, elephants, whales, parrots, bees and fruit flies."

85% of Germany's power just came from renewable energy, setting a new record
:On April 30, 64 per cent of electricity consumed in Germany came from renewable sources, such as wind power and solar. At 2pm, the share of renewables was 85 per cent and between 10am and 6pm over three quarters of demand was covered by clean energy - an impressive feat in a world still dominated by coal and oil."

Projections ~ Chögyam Trungpa
Things do exist as they are, but we tend to see our version of them as they are, rather than things as they really are. That makes everything that we see projections. But one doesn’t have to make a definite and absolute reassurance of that necessarily at all. You just go along with situations, go along dealing with them. If you are going too far, they’ll shake you. They’ll beat you to death if you’re going too far. If you’re going well, if you are balanced, they will present hospitality and openness luxuriously to you.
-- Chögyam Trungpa

Just as insubstantial clouds can darket the whole sky, so thoughts can obscure the pristine radiance of awareness.
Anger might seem extremely strong, but where does it get the power to overwhelm you so easily? Is it some external force, something with arms and legs, weapons and armor? If not, then is it somewhere inside you? If so, where is it? Can you find it in your brain, in your heart, in your bones, or in any other part of You? Impossible though it is to locate, anger does seem to be present in a very concrete way, a strong clinging that freezes your mind into a state of solidity and brings a great deal of suffering both to yourself and to others. Just as clouds, too insubstantial to support your weight or be worn as clothing, can nevertheless darken the whole sky and cover the sun, so in the same way thoughts can obscure the pristine radiance of awareness. By recognizing the void, transparent nature of mind, let it return to its natural state of freedom.

The moral dilemma of understanding consciousness better
"Debating whether other beings are conscious can sometimes feel like an unimportant academic exercise. But it’s not. The conclusion we reach determines how we treat animals -- our livestock, our research subjects, and our neighbors in cities and other places we live."
"A nervous system’s ability to know that something’s damaging the organism is called 'nociception.' But something can have a limited form of nociception without the conscious feeling we call 'hurting.'"

Maintaining awareness - your practice is always meditation
As long as you maintain awareness or mindfulness, no matter what happens when you practice, your practice is meditation. If you watch thoughts, that is meditation. If you can’t watch your thoughts, that is meditation, too. Any of these experience can be supports for meditation. The essential thing is to maintain awareness, no matter what thoughts, emotions, sensations occur. If you remember that awareness of what occurs is meditation, then meditation becomes much easier than you may think.

Chelsea Manning is a rree woman: Her heroism has expanded beyond her initial whistle-blowing
She was the classic leaker of conscience, someone who went at the age of 20 to fight in the Iraq War believing it was noble, only to discover the dark reality not only of that war but of the U.S. government’s actions in the world generally: war crimes, indiscriminate slaughter, complicity with high-level official corruption, and systematic deceit of the public.
...
As a result, she has inspired countless people around the world. At this point, one could almost say that her 2010 leaking to WikiLeaks has faded into the background when assessing her true impact as a human being. Her bravery and sense of conviction wasn’t a one-time outburst: It was the sustained basis for her last seven years of imprisonment that she somehow filled with purpose, dignity, and inspiration.
