Certainty is the cage that keeps us safe from curiosity. I've been released from the cage. I am the songbird and I am flying for the window. I know it's closed but I plan on breaking through. – Charlie Coté, Jr. (1987-2005)

Would You Be a Good Samaritan?

If our brains are soft-wired to to show empathy, then why aren't we more compassionate? Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence shares some reasons why, though of course, it's always good to be a bit skeptical because, hey, life is complex and we're all addicted to over-simplification. Still, I find this talk interesting. What's your take?

While you enjoy your New Year's Eve celebration, take some time to show someone else that you care.
