Research shows that people work with a positive mindset, performance on nearly every level productivity, creativity, engagement – improves. Yet happiness is perhaps the most misunderstood driver of performance. For one, most people believe that success precedes happiness. “Once I get a promotion, I’ll be happy,” they think. Or, “Once I hit my sales target, I’ll feel great,” But because success is a moving target – as soon as you hit your target, you raise it again – the happiness that results from success is fleeting.
In fact, it works the other way around: People who cultivate a positive mindset perform better in the face of challenge. I call this the “happiness advantage” – every business outcome shows improvement when the brain is positive. I’ve observed this effect in my role as a researcher and lecturer in 48 countries on the connection between employee happiness and success. And I’m not alone: In a meta-analysis of 225 academic studies, researchers Sonja Lyubomirsky, Laura King, and Ed Diener found strong evidence of directional casually between life satisfaction and successful business outcomes.
After common misconception is that our genetics, our environment, or a combination of the two determines how happy we are. To be sure, both factors have an impact. But one’s a general sense of well-being us surprisingly malleable. The habits you cultivate, the way you interact with coworkers, how you think about stress – all these can be managed to increase your happiness and your chances of success.
According to the report, formally known as the Fourth National Giant Panda Survey, the geographic range of pandas throughout China also increased. The total area inhabited by wild pandas in China now equals 2,577,000 hectares, an expansion of 11.8% since 2003.
“These results are a treatment to the conservation achievements of the Chinese government,” said Xiaohai Liu, executive director of programmes, WWF-China. “A lot of good work is being done around wild giant panda conservation, and the government has done well to integrate these efforts and partner with conservation organization including WWF.”
Much of the success is increasing the panda population comes as a result of conservation policies implemented by the Chinese government, including the Natural Forest Protection Project and Grain for Green.
The report found that 1246 wild giant pandas live within nature reserves, accounting for 66.8% of the total wild population, and the habitat within nature reserves accounts for 53.8% of the total habitat area. These are currently 67 panda nature reserves in China, an increase of 27 since the last report.
“WWF is placed to witness this significant conservation achievement- the increase of both the wild giant panda population size and habitat area over the last ten years,” said Liu. “The survey result demonstrates the effectiveness of nature reserves in booting wild giant panda numbers.”
I think it’s important that we are, as a society, able to have an informed debate about how much privacy is enough but not too much, how much security is enough but not too much. Privacy as a human right that’s simply quoting the Universal Declaration.
In the physical world, we’ve got all kinds of protections. There is evidence that we care about our privacy. We’ve got doors, we’ve got obscured glass, we’ve got locks, we wear clothes. We put up shutters. And technology continues to erode the privacy that exists in the real world, in the three spatial dimensions. Security cameras, automatic number plate recognition take away anonymity. Long lenses, paparazzi, take away distance and the privacy that it used to create. And body scanners are increasingly being used to see through clothes.
This process isn’t going to slow down and the new quantum technologies are actually being able to do gravitational sensing. And that’s advancing at a remarkable rate. And you can’t shield gravity. So some of the new quantum technologies are able already to see through walls. And there are technologies also for seeing around corners now using scattered light from lasers. Technology continues to erode privacy.
Huge numbers of stringing jellyfish have attacked bathers in the Mediterranean this summer, providing further evidence that the gelatinous creatures are becoming more abundant in European seas. Researchers say the invasion is the result of a combination of climate change and overfishing of the jellyfish’s natural predators and competitors for food. The trend is likely to worsen as water temperatures continue to rise, the scientists say. While the species reaching European beaches aren’t considered lethal to humans, some like the purple jellyfish have a very painful sting that can cause severe swelling and an allergic reaction.
The Spanish Red Cross is reported to have treated more than 19,000 bathers for jellyfish stings in the famous Costa Brava resort region alone. Government officials have sent out boats to net the jellyfish before they reach shallow water, and many Spanish beaches have been closed. Resorts in Italy and France have also been badly affected. Red flags and signs have appeared on beaches across the western Mediterranean to warn vacationers of the danger. Last month researchers from the marine environmental group Oceana Europe, based in Madrid, Spain discovered massive concentrations of jellyfish along Spain’s southeast coast. ” We have found jellyfish all over the Mediterranean, but in this area, we’ve seen concentrations of more than ten jellyfish per square meter [1 square foot],” reported the head of research Ricardo Aguilar. “Wherever we look there is practically nowhere without jellyfish.”
