16 Life-Learnings from 16 Years of The Marginalian – The Marginalian

16 Life-Learnings from 16 Years of The Marginalian – The Marginalian

I have posted about this website before when it called itself “Brainpickens”. Each year the author reflects on what she has experienced and reproduces her Life-Learnings. There are a culmination of her experiences and readings over the past 16 years probably her entire life. Read through them and take each one and think how they might benefit your life.

I like 1,4,5,and 6. Allow yourself to change your mind, add stillness to your life, you control your integrity, and be present. The others add value to your life but right now I like these 4 the best.

Brain Pickings – An inventory of the meaningful life.

This is one of my favorite blogs on reading and MORE! The is a veracious reader where she picks apart books highlights main points and concepts of the book. She also seamlessly brings in information from other books to support, add to, or, contrast the concepts she is discussing.

IF YOU LIKE TO READ THIS IS A MUST SEE BLOG!!!

One of my favorite features is her “Life Lessons” from all of her work on this blog (among other endeavors I’m sure she does). My favorite lesson is the freedom to “Change Your Mind”. See it HERE

This is not Policing or the Criminal Justice System but it is about reading and growth.

Kahler v. Kansas – SCOTUSblog

Kahler is a case from Kansas where the question is raised if abolishing the “Insanity Defense” is unconditional and a violation of the 8th Amendment. What is fascinating is the Amici (Amicus) Curiae briefs. These briefs help to further define the issues surrounding the Insanity Defense.
