Use The Tools Of Cognitive Neuroscience To Alter Your Behaviors

From A Lecture Series By Professor Peter Vishton, Ph.D.

I Am Heath Ledger–Trailer for the New Documentary

The first trailer for the forthcoming Spike TV documentary, I Am Heath Ledger, has arrived—and it’s sure to break fans’ hearts. Nine years after Ledger’s shocking and untimely death, the documentary, which premieres April 23 at the Tribeca Film Festival, will reveal moving never-before-seen footage from his life and interviews with family, friends, and Hollywood colleagues…

The trailer for the 90-minute documentary is emotional and a little eerie—in several scenes, Ledger turns the camera on himself—making it hard to believe, all over again, that the superstar actor is gone. “Heath was the most alive human,” singer and friend Ben Harper says in the trailer. “And if it wasn’t on the edge, it didn’t interest him.”

You Need to Focus on This One Thing, If You Want to Innovate

Greg Satell, Inc.

I found that the most innovative firms aren’t necessarily any more creative or even better at solving problems than most. Rather, what set them apart was how they aggressively sought out new problems to solve. The truth is that if you want to create a truly innovative culture, it isn’t ideas you should glorify, but problems.

Halftone is the reprographic technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size or in spacing, thus generating a gradient-like effect “Halftone” can also be used to refer specifically to the image that is produced by this process.
