TED: Barry Schwartz on our loss of wisdom

"…we should strive to create environments that encourage and nurture both moral skill and moral will. Even the wisest and most well-meaning people will give up if they have to swim against the current in the organizations in which they work.

…because the truth is that any work you do that involves interactions with other people is moral work — and any moral work depends upon practical wisdom.

…as teachers we should strive to be the ordinary heroes, the moral exemplars, to the people we mentor. We have to remember … that we are always teaching. Someone is always watching; the camera is always on.”

Everyday Superhero of the Day: Jess Thom is one of the 10 percent of people with Tourette’s syndrome who also have coprolalia — the tendency to involuntarily blurt out curse words. Her most frequent tic words include “f**k” and “biscuit,” but her tics also cause her to utter brilliant, hilarious and obscene phrases, which she’s started collecting on her website, Tourettes Hero.

The site includes a searchable index of Thom’s best tics, including fan-submitted illustrations of some of the more colorful phrases.

Tourettes Hero is also Thom’s superhero alter ego — costume and all — which she adopted for speaking engagements and classroom visits to help educate people about an often-misunderstood condition shared by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide and “change the world one tic at a time.”

(Sorta not safe for work, f**king biscuits.)

Short Film of the Day:This Is My Home”: A short profile of a New York City curio collector whose home is regularly mistaken for a vintage shop.

Money: “This is my home. And I invite people in my home. They’ll stop outside while I’m sitting — usually in the summertime — they’ll stop and say, “what is this?” And I tell them, “well, go inside, satisfy your curiosity, and then come out and tell me what it is, ‘cause I don’t know!”

After the Valentine’s Day story I started to cry, mostly because I’m emotionally volatile when it comes to beautiful, real people.
