Is Google Making Us Stupid? (The Atlantic). I’m currently reading this author’s book, The Shallows, which he has published to expand on this original essay. The title speaks for itself — but it’s truth may be worse than we want to know. www.theatlantic.com/magazine/is-google-making-us-stupid/
The Opposite of Loneliness (Yale Daily News). A university columnist’s final words on her college memories, before she was tragically killed in a car accident. Her words parallel my own thoughts so closely (“We don’t have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that’s what I want in life.”).
Jogging Increases Life Expectancy (The Independent). Score — this is for real! Shout out to Cristina, who pointed me to this article. independent.co.uk/life-style/jogging-increases-life-expectancy
Grace in Broken Arrow (This Land Press). One of those can’t look away from the train wreck type articles. A young P.E. teacher, respected by all at the Christian School he taught at, was found to be a serial molester of young boys in his P.E. classes. Horrifying and spellbinding: this could happen anywhere. http://thislandpress.com/05/23/2012/grace-in-broken-arrow/
Kid’s To-Do List (Huffington Post). Truth & perspective. huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/23/kids-to-do-list
For the Graduate: Yes and No (Turning Pages). MORE truth & perspective: “When you’re in high school, everything feels so much bigger than it ever really is…Don’t be afraid to say yes.” We all exaggerate our decisions — is saying yes to a Wendy’s run at midnight really going to affect the rest of your life? Say yes til you know yourself. anniesbutterworth.blogspot.com/for-graduate-yes-and-no
Hebrews (I’ve been loving this book recently):
4: 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
