Why Feedback Rarely Does What It’s Meant To

quote [ Telling people what we think of their performance doesn?t help them thrive and excel, and telling people how we think they should improve actually hinders learning. ]

That one could have gone without the explanatory tail and the business-y tone, but it illustrates that an easy way to loose people is to correct them.

The Dreams Of A Man Asleep For Three Weeks

quote [ On March 22, 2018, I was rushed to the hospital for life-saving surgery. Due to complications with the procedure, I didn?t regain full, coherent consciousness until the second week in April. For three weeks I was stuck inside my own mind, subject to a seemingly unending series of dreams. Dreams covering on a variety of themes, some light and hopeful, others dark and dismal. I dreamed the end of my life over and over. I was a hero and a villain. Sometimes, but not often, I was Michael Fahey. ]

I've got dreams, dreams to remember

Sick and tired: Online activists are silencing us, scientists say

quote [ The idea of critics or activists challenging researchers and seeking to hold science to account isn?t new. Most researchers say they are happy to engage in discussion. But with social media, email and internet now accessible from almost every home, mass communication gives online activists a voice with unprecedented power. In the field of CFS/ME research, it?s often personal. Those at the centre of it say it?s gotten out of control. ]

About spiralling opinions and people's troubles to grasp new-age illnesses.

Happy Birthday, Quentin Tarantino!

I don't usually put in H.B. posts, but, I do love me some Quentin. Plus it's getting pretty bleak with only obituaries being posted.
