A truly inspiring story about tenacity, bravery and confidence.

"Anthropocentric as [the gardener] may be, he recognizes that he is dependent for his health and survival on many other forms of life, so he is careful to take their interests into account in whatever he does. He is in fact a wilderness advocate of a certain kind. It is when he respects and nurtures the wilderness of his soil and his plants that his garden seems to flourish most. Wildness, he has found, resides not only out there, but right here: in his soil, in his plants, even in himself…
But wildness is more a quality than a place, and though humans can’t manufacture it, they can nourish and husband it…
The gardener cultivates wildness, but he does so carefully and respectfully, in full recognition of its mystery."

Michael Pollan, Second Nature: A Gardner’s Education

"[Physics is] a good framework for thinking. … Boil things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from there."

Watch the whole talk here»

At TEDxDelft in The Netherlands, Dr. John Cohn — Chief Scientist of Design Automation at IBM and the force behind 60 patents issued or pending in the field of design automationgave a rousing talk on why we need to be more playful — in and outside of work and school.

Watch it yourself for a dose of inspiration, and make sure to look out for the smoking pickle (no, really) at 5:22.

(But don’t forget to always seek out adult supervision and be super careful when carrying out experiments. Stay safe and have fun!)

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

I’m free to say whatever I
Whatever I like
If it’s wrong or right it’s alright

Always seems to me
You only see what people want you to see
How long’s it gonna be
Before we get on the bus
And cause no fuss
Get a grip on yourself
It don’t cost much

Free to be whatever you
Whatever you say
If it comes my way it’s alright

You’re free to be wherever you
Wherever you please
You can shoot the breeze if you want

It always seems to me
You only see what people want you to see
How long’s it gonna be
Before we get on the bus
And cause no fuss
Get a grip on yourself
It don’t cost much

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

Here in my mind
You know you might find
Something that you
You thought you once knew
But now it’s all gone
And you know it’s no fun
Yeah I know it’s no fun
Oh I know it’s no fun

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

I’m free to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want

Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Yeah I know it’s alright

Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Yeah I know it’s alright

As a follow to the previous post, Coca Cola already did a #reasonstobelieve video in 2011!

Even more #ReasonsToBelieve from Coca-Cola

Great to see how Coca-Cola holds strong to great commercials. This message tells us a lot about the time we live in, a great time with a lot of opportunities, while we think the world is on fire according to news media…
