Anand Krishna’s musings

As a citizen of Bangalore, I am currently more worried about electricity. The monsoons in Karnataka have been far below normal. Several districts are lkely to be declared as drought-affected. This has an adverse impact on power generation and therefore, distribution. At a time like this, the BJP’s poll promise to supply free or highly-subsidized power for irrigation will come back to bite it. 

I read a report in today’s Bangalore edition of the Times of India that former Chief Minister S. Bangarappa has called upon farmers to destroy the meters proposed to be installed. Some have large land holdings and generate millions of Rupees in revenue, if not profit, each year.

Hidden Brain

July 2, 2018 There is great comfort in the familiar. It’s one reason humans often flock to other people who share the same interests, laugh at the same jokes, hold the same political views. Familiar ground may not be the best place to cultivate creativity. From science and business to music and the world of fashion, researchers have found that people with deep connections to people from other countries and cultures often see benefits in terms of their creative output. This week on Hidden Brain, we look at the powerful connection between the ideas we dream up and the people who surround us, and what it really takes to think outside the box.

061, Raj Sisodia, Conscious Capitalism, Inc.

Raj Sisodia is one of the thought leaders of the Conscious Capitalism movement. His books Firms of Endearment and Conscious Capitalism were major influences on my thinking about social entrepreneurship. They are part of the reason that I produce Social Entrepreneur today. In this interview, Raj describes the research he conducted on marketing and how he began to understand that there was a better way of doing business – a more conscious form of capitalism. He also talks about his new book Shakti Leadership: Embracing Feminine and Masculine Power in Business. ‘Many of these companies talk openly about building a business on love.

Richard Pryor 40 Years Ago: ‘Promoting Racism Is Part of Capitalism’

Police killings of unarmed black people have poured gasoline on the race relations debate in America, but the United States has been a divided country since its founding. In a television interview with journalist Bill Boggs, the late, great comedian explained why white America doesn’t want to stop racism. For some bonus material, Pryor talks about his comedic influences with James Earl Jones and gets roasted. A journalist and innovator with two decades in digital media, Ortiz founded the mobile app startup Evrybit, a live storytelling and reporting tool, as a 2014 John.

Affluenza…The Show

Glenn Stanton shakes his head with a look of mild disgust. Mere miles from alpine meadows and mountain creeks, one would think more people would take the time to stop and smell the pine needles. A free-market conservative, Stanton believes the American economic system is the best there is. Materialism and mall mania are taking a toll on the country, he says. Some family therapists warn that the price is a culture in which people treat one another like products. 

Beyond that, arguments about money are known to play a central role in 90 percent of divorce cases.

Temple Of Goddess Spirituality

The Goddess Temple is a project of the Center for the Study of the Gift Economy under the direction of Genevieve Vaughan. Here, feminine values are honored and the Divine Mother is revered. The sand-colored stucco Temple opens to the elements of nature, with archways to the four directions and an open roof to the sky. Peace and reverence live within the temple, welcoming all that come. Together in ritual we celebrate the dance of the earth, sun, and moon. 

All are invited to pray, meditate, and connect with the Divine Feminine that is within and around us.
