This time in the iPubBlog Charless Hess authors a brief yet powerful piece discussing how we can cope with the extremes, how to bridge difficult spaces, and perhaps above all actionable steps one can take to deal with polarizing views.
“We have just embarked on a new year, but I wonder what the “new” is? After all, we still have the same president and the same problems repeated daily on the “news blues.” Our New Year’s resolutions still harbor the same gripes and opinions. We want to change, but we cannot seem to get beyond a cultural depression.” In this wonderful piece Sam Holt evaluates these questions and discusses what he believes we should do to overcome the New Years Blues.
“Unless we are all engaged as global citizens who appreciate the truth, who understand science, empirical evidence and facts, then we are going to be wandering around — to a potential catastrophe.” In this post Sandy Mayer recommends a wonderful Ted Radio Hour Talk by Christiane Amanpour on navigating through the news of today!

But can we afford not to?” In this post Stephen shares an excellent Podcast by the wonderful team at NPR Ted Radio Hour that discusses how we bridge the gap of communication when dialogue seems so far away.
