Suggestion Saturday: January 29, 2011

Here is this week’s list of blog posts, videos, comic strips and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. (The photo was taken by Andrew Dunn.)

The photo on the right isn’t related to any of the links this week but it does tickle my imagination. I can almost see the scales, feathers, fur and claws of otherworldly creatures in the creases of the clouds. What do you see in them?

The Economic Injustice of Plastic. A video about the link between environmental toxins and social justice.

Problematic Solution. On problems, solutions and how (not) to help other people make them meet.

Make Something of Yourself! This blog post best sums itself up in a one-sentence quote: “There is honor in every profession that serves the needs of society.” The Rambling Taoist has been publishing some fantastic posts on this topic over the last several days. If only more people agreed with him.

Miss Representation. A new documentary about how women are portrayed in the media has been nominated for a Sundance award. I’ve pared down recently on some tv shows that were consistently writing characters (regardless of gender) in some extremely stereotypical and offensive ways. This makes me want to cut out a few more shows that make me occasionally cringe.

What have you been reading?

    “Our number goal should be a mastery of our own lives in tune with our own internal natures. Beyond that, we should strive to be the best at whatever we choose to do; whether that be CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation or a ditch digger.”

    my favorite quote from your links this week.

    that is the key to many things, including not hating every minute of work for 40 hours a week for 40 years of one’s life.
