This Sunday 7/13 and two Sundays after that on 7/27 from 1:30 - 3:00 pm I will be teaching a Yoga and Body Awareness class while chiropractor Shawn Bek is away.  

This will be a Level 1 practice in which I'll cover principles of alignment, safety, and getting the most out of the pose for each major category of the body: core, feet (including Achilles and calves), shoulders, hips, and spine (including forward folds, backbends, side stretches, and twists).  

Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the fundamentals of yoga or an experienced practitioner that wants to learn general principles that will make your practice better, this will be a great class for you.  It's also a nice way to get that special family member or friend to start practicing yoga.  Hope to see you at Avalon Art and Yoga in Palo Alto on 7/13 and 7/27!

There is something to be said for having a Zen-like austere decor.  A new study looked at how visual surroundings in a kindergarten class affected students' ability to concentrate and learn. (Montessori schools have long emphasized the calmer, understated look.)

“Our culture often paints empathy as weakness,” Jack said, “The current model plays into that view, suggesting that those who don’t like utilitarian thinking are intellectually weak and ruled by primitive passions.

“But these views are fundamentally misleading. Compassion is actually linked to stronger emotion regulation abilities. Decades of research shows that we have to overcome our reflexive feelings of aversion and distress to be ready and willing to help others.”

Great advice on how to give a good presentation. In summary:

- Run a Bar Test: Spend as little as 15 minutes with someone unfamiliar with the content of the presentation to see if they understand the point of the presentation. Force it to be succinct.

- Build your skeleton: It takes three elements to make a great story: Your through-line (the point of the story), “Put me in the room” anecdotes (to give a tactile sense of experience), and Moments of reflection (telling your audience how you feel)

- Craft your story: Less words, more visuals

- Tell your story: Practice, practice, practice. There is no such thing as a natural-born presenter.

Beautiful and fascinating visualization of PINs

Beautiful abstract art?

Rather this is a graphical representation of the frequency of four digit PIN codes. On the x-axes we have the first two PIN digits from 00.. to 99.., on the y-axes we have the last two digits from ..00 to ..99. Popular PIN codes include the yellow diagonal, PIN codes of the form XYXY, and even more bright XXXX. The vertical yellow line are PIN codes marking a year, mostly between the years 1930-2010. The yellow blob on the lower left are US formatted calendar days from 01/01 to 12/31 (you can even see how many days each month has). Also singleton yellow dots can be explained.

Anyway, it is beautiful, in my opinion.___Beautiful and fascinating visualization of PINs
