From Toledo School District Supt. Chris Rust: One of the things I’ve learned in my life is the impact that adverse childhood experiences can have on young people. Childhood trauma creates enormous barriers between a child and their goals. This week, Oprah Winfrey reported on the issue and how trauma informed care can help people overcome the effects of these experiences. The question “what happened to you?” is central to this practice.
Story from 60 Minutes featuring Oprah Winfrey here.
Toledo’s Astrophysicist Ethan Siegel posted: “His work, his life, and his scientific contributions made him an inspiration to millions across the world, including to me. But the combination of his achievements and his affliction with ALS — combined with his meteoric fame — often made him immune to justified criticism. As a result, he spent decades making false, outdated, or misleading claims to the general population that permanently harmed the public understanding of science. He claimed to have solutions to problems that fell apart on a cursory glance; he proclaimed doomsday for humanity repeatedly with no evidence to back such claims up; he ignored the good work done by others in his own field. Despite his incredible successes in a number of arenas, there are some major scientific lessons he never learned. Here’s your chance to learn them now.”
Come learn, for yourself, the 4 scientific ideas that Stephen Hawking never managed to learn and incorporate while he was still alive.
