Top 100 documentaries from Films for Action

I discovered Films for Action a while ago and can spend hours on their site watching fascinating documentaries or reading thought provoking blogs. They describe Films for Action as a community-powered learning library for people who want to change the world viagra generique maroc.

Over the last 8 years, they have watched hundreds of social change documentaries and cataloged the best of them on the site. There’s now so many that they decided to create a list of the very best 100 fims hand-picked for their quality, insight and potential to inspire positive change. The films cover a wide range of topics including finance, permaculture and gardening, food, energy, democracy and politics, war, happiness, community, education, architecture, media and more.

All of the films have been selected because they are either free to watch online, or can be rented online.  Click on the image below to see the list of 100 films.

Philosophers Notes

I love these Philosophers Notes book summaries from Brian Johnson.  I came across them a few years ago and must confess I ‘tested’ Brian when I first discovered them. You used to get a free book of your choice to try and I deliberately picked one I knew well to see what he made of it.

I chose ‘Loving What Is’ by Bryon Katie as my freebie and was very pleasantly surpised. I first read the book when I was doing a course in Focused Mindfulness with Absolute Specialists and learned about ‘The Work’ which is a very powerful technique she uses.

When I read the book there were several key points that stood out, but when I heard Brian’s summary he also picked out something else which I hadn’t initially realised was so significant, but after using the techniques for a while it was clear to me how important it was.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

So.. I decided I liked Brian, his notes, and how his mind worked and signed up for them all!

There is absolutely loads of  free stuff on the Philosphers Notes website including podcasts and short video summaries of the books. You can get 3 free notes for signing up to Brian’s daily or weekly  email dose of inspiration so why not give them a try.

If you want access to everything he offers a brilliant deal of $10 a month for all the Philosophers Notes, 10 new notes a month as well as Optimal Living 101 videos on all sorts of topics like Procrastination, Confidence, Action, Optimism and much more.

I do get a bit of commission if you become a paid up member and find his site through this page.. but I wholeheartedly recommend what he does.

The Fragile Framework – Climate Change

The Climate talks in Paris are currently going on .. and I came across this cartoon by Richard Monastersky and Nick Sousanis  on the Nature site which summarises past talks and what they are debating.

I am writing this in a week when floods, rain and strong winds have devastated parts of Northern England. In Honister Pass in Cumbria 341.4 mm (13.4 inches) of rain fell in 24 hours. Floods are also affecting Chennai in India and parts of Norway.. but nobody seems to be making the link between this abnormal weather and the talks in Paris. Climate is already changing.
