“Thanks to physics, and the truly bizarre quirks of quarks, time travel may be feasible. A strange discovery by quantum physicists at the University of California Santa Barbara means that an object you can see in front of you may exist simultaneously in a parallel universe…”
The Girl Effect: http://www.girleffect.org/share/the-big-picture/the-girl-effect
This was mentioned at TEDWomen by Hillary Clinton. I will post below this video a story she shared of how a cow saved a girl. Really.
Story as told by Hilary Clinton:
“This teenage girl’s father expected to force her into early marriage, but she had been to school and she received a cow, perhaps through the Heifer project, to encourage her to stay in school. When her father demanded she drop out of school and get married, she said no. When he insisted, she insisted right back.
“And finally she pulled out her trump card: ‘If I leave and get married, I’m taking my cow, that cow belongs to me.’ So guess what. She stayed in school, she was spared an early marriage, all because her father couldn’t bear to part with the cow.”
”The modern office has become an interruption factory. … You can’t get work done at work anymore. People — especially creative people — need long stretches of uninterrupted time to get things done. Fifteen minutes isn’t enough. Thirty minutes isn’t enough. Even an hour isn’t enough.”
”It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive.” ~ C.W. Leadbeater
