immy006: 1. Travel often. Designate one weekend a month to get yourself out of the city, out of the country or at the least, out the front door of your apartment. Let the ever-changing scenery of your life keep you inspired, invigorated and consistently reminded that there鈥檚 so much more to the world than your everyday routine. 2. Make room for surprises. Instead of trying to control every last aspect of your life, give your life the chance to surprise you from time to time. Say yes to the date you would usually reject or the party you鈥檙e not sure if you should go to. Sometimes the things we鈥檙e most unsure of end up being the things we鈥檙e most grateful to have done 鈥 but you鈥檒l never know unless you give it a shot. 3. Learn to receive love. Accept help from friends when they offer it. Accept compliments when they鈥檙e directed at you. Let yourself be loved in the tiny ways you don鈥檛 always allow yourself to be, and watch how much easier it becomes to accept your own love, too. 4. Practice gratitude. Every time a negative thought crosses your mind, deliberately counter-act it with a positive one. Life isn鈥檛 all sunshine and roses, but it is a lot more positive than we tend to give it credit for. Capitalize on that on the days when your mood needs a boost. 5. Speak to one new person every day. The world is full of incredible people 鈥 in bookstores, coffee shops, on buses and on sidewalks. Take an extra two minutes out of each day to learn your barista鈥檚 name or tell the bus driver that you appreciate them. You鈥檒l be surprised at how many incredible people are already in your vicinity. 6. Dedicate time to self-improvement. Set aside an hour or two a week to chart out personal goals, projects and affirmations. Become your own life coach and make self-improvement the priority that it deserves to be. 7. Practice forgiveness. Let past grudges fall by the wayside and allow peoples presents to overcome their pasts. You don鈥檛 have to welcome them back into your life, but you do deserve to welcome peace back into yours. And forgiveness is an integral part of doing just that. 8. Leave the past behind. Give yourself active permission to let go of the mistakes you鈥檝e made, the paths you shouldn鈥檛 have walked down and all the ways in which your past has let you down. To move forward you have to face forward 鈥 so give yourself permission to do so. 9. Get moving. Pick a sport, a class or an exercise regime that works for your body and then practice it as often as possible. Life just looks better through the lens of endorphins 鈥 and exercising regularly is a proven method of enhancing your mood and wellbeing. 10. Train yourself to see the best in people. Loving and appreciating others is a habit, just like anything else. Instead of immediately writing people off for their shortcomings, try pinpointing their best qualities and focusing only on those. It lightens your mood and frees up that part of your brain that is usually reserved for bitterness and judgment. 11. Search for opportunities everywhere. Keep your eyes peeled for the classes you鈥檝e always wanted to take, the career move you鈥檝e always wanted to make and the little risks you could be taking every day to get you closer to where you want to be. The world is ripe with new opportunities and chances. It鈥檚 up to you whether or not you鈥檙e going to take them. 12. Surround yourself with positive people. As Jim Rohn once said, 鈥淵ou are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.鈥 So take a look at who those people are 鈥 do they inspire you to be a bigger, brighter, more positive version of yourself? If not, it may be time to re-evaluate your friend group. 13. Make positive plans for the future. Instead of focusing on what could go wrong in the next couple of years, try taking a long look at what could go right. Plan your life as though all of your wildest dreams could and might come true 鈥 you鈥檒l be surprised at the effect this mindset has. 14. Dress for success. Our outer appearance dictates almost nothing about what kind of people we are 鈥 but it can influence the way we feel. When we present ourselves in a way that makes us feel confident, that confidence shines through in everything we do. 15. Listen to the right kind of music. Music has a massive effect on our mood. And we can use that to our advantage. By coordinating the music you鈥檙e listening to the mood you鈥檇 like to be in, you can train your brain to engage in positive (or mellow) vibes as needed. 16. Make friends with your body. Instead of hating and punishing your body, try loving it. Try listening to it. Try feeding it, exercising it, resting it and nurturing it in a way that makes you feel at home inside of it. And then love and appreciate it for all the incredible things it is capable of. 17. Seek out mentors. We all need people to look up to. By choosing to surround yourself with those who are doing well in the fields that interest you, you are setting yourself up for success. Allow yourself to be encouraged, inspired and mentored by people much bigger than yourself. 18. Be receptive to change. Instead of agonizing over the way things used to be, start picking out what鈥檚 positive about the way things are. Change is never easy, but more often than not, it is our own mental resistance to it that makes it so damn hard. 19. Let laughter be a priority. We鈥檙e fine prioritizing work, school, the gym and other constructive activities 鈥 but we鈥檙e not as comfortable prioritizing the activities that bring us true joy. Like sharing a glass of wine and a night of ridiculous jokes with the people we love most. Consider carving out time for laughter because it turns out it really is the best medicine. 20. Start looking at health holistically. Health isn鈥檛 just about eating your veggies and going for regular runs (though it鈥檚 also about that) 鈥 true health means that you鈥檙e taking care of yourself physically, emotionally and psychologically. Failing to make time for self-care means failing to make time for your overall sense of wellbeing. 21. Commit to an ongoing education. Learning shouldn鈥檛 stop when we graduate high school or college. By actively seeking out methods of growing your knowledge base, you鈥檙e actively seeking out ways of improving your life. And education doesn鈥檛 need to be formal 鈥 chances are, everyone you know has something to teach you. It鈥檚 just a matter of allowing them to do so. 22. Master the art of active listening. You have more to learn from others than you think you do. 23. Let yourself dream without restraint. Your life may never fully match up with your wildest fantasies 鈥 but allowing yourself to engage in them nonetheless can help you realize what you really want in life, and what you ought to be working toward. 24. Choose optimism over cynicism. As much as self-proclaimed 鈥渞ealists鈥 loathe to admit it, optimists have more fun. And by making slightly more positive choices in their everyday lives, they attract more positive results. 25. Prioritize people. As much as we鈥檇 all like to believe otherwise, we need other people in our lives. When we neglect our social lives, we neglect some of the best opportunities we have available for ongoing learning and growth. By making other people a priority, we make the continuous expansion of our worldview a priority, too. 26. Stop shying away from hard work. In the world of quick fixes and overnight fame, hard work is an underrated skill. The more we persevere at the things that matter to us, the more our confidence grows alongside our skill set. And that in itself is reason enough to start taking our work ethic more seriously. 27. Minimize your need for instant gratification. In a world that maximizes instant gratification, learn to occasionally forgo your impulses in favour of focusing on what you want in the long-run. The more you realize how dependent you are on digital forms of validation and gratification, the more capable you become of unplugging and focusing on what matters. 28. Spend more time in nature. There鈥檚 no two ways about it 鈥 our minds need to interact with nature in order to function optimally. Taking a half hour walk outdoors may just be the antidote you need for reducing anxiety levels, increasing your quality of sleep and boosting your mood. At worst, it鈥檚 a nice way to spend your lunch break. 29. Minimize your belongings. Minimalism is trendy 鈥 and with good reason. The less we own, the less we realize we need in order to get by. It鈥檚 an empowering concept 鈥 and one that eases the pressure on our wallets while it鈥檚 at it. 30. Give your time away. By devoting our time and energy to a cause much bigger than ourselves, we ironically realize what a huge impact we can have on the world when we aren鈥檛 just focused on our own self-interest. Sometimes the first step to improving yourself is forgetting all about yourself. 31. Allow yourself a creative outlet. Even if you鈥檙e completely lacking in artistic talent, having a creative outlet of any sort can be highly therapeutic. You don鈥檛 need to be Picasso or Hemingway right away 鈥 you can indulge in self-expression for your own sake and let the talent build with time. 32. Share some positive energy. The best way to intensify a good mood is to share it. Go out of your way to compliment a friend, buy a coffee for the person behind you in line or tell someone exactly why you love them. It鈥檚 almost impossible to make someone else鈥檚 day and not have your own made as a result. 33. Be a little more open every day. Life drags. It stagnates. It slumps. But more often than not, the reason it does all of that is because we have closed ourselves off to it. When we commit to saying 鈥榊es鈥 a little more often with every passing day, we commit to opening our lives back up to possibility. And we may just end up falling in love with wherever those possibilities take us.

endeavorist: 鈥淧art of being a scientist is you don鈥檛 want to believe there is a problem you can鈥檛 solve.鈥 鈥 Dr. Michael Mann is the Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University and holds joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute. Mann is also the director of Penn State鈥檚 Earth System Science Center, authored over 170 peer-reviewed papers, and most notably, he co-authored the study which established the iconic 鈥渉ockey stick graph,鈥 a reconstruction of global climate communicating a general cooling trend over the last 1,000 years broken by an abrupt and precipitous spike that began in 1900. In the face of a nearly unanimous consensus on human-induced climate change, a rapidly warming planet, and data which not only revalidates these realities, but informs us that the change is occurring faster than our best models forecasted, the general public largely hears conflated opinions and biased assessments via the news media which either dull down the reality of climate change, or outright deny its existence.聽 According to the National Climatic Data Center, the world just saw its warmest winter ever鈥xcept for in one spot in the north Atlantic ocean (the deepest blue color above), which set a record for cold. Which is not good. (Credit: WashPost; NCDC) But what about the actual scientists and researchers studying our warming planet meticulously from the sea, ground, sky, and space? Let鈥檚 clarify what kind of science this is comprised of. Climate change/global warming data is determined and monitored amongst the collaboration of the following fields:聽 Earth science or geoscience (also considered to be a branch of planetary science) which studies the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. Earth scientists use tools from聽physics, chemistry, biology, chronology, and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of how the Earth system works.聽 Atmospheric science is comprised of meteorology, which includes聽atmospheric chemistry,聽atmospheric physics聽(focused on weather forecasting);聽climatology,聽which studies the atmospheric changes (long and short-term) that define average climates and their change over time via natural and anthropogenic climate variability;聽aeronomy, or,聽the study of the upper layers of the atmosphere, where聽dissociation and ionization are vital; and all of these fields encroach into the field of planetary science and the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the solar system.聽Experimental instruments used in atmospheric sciences include satellites, rocketsondes, radiosondes, weather balloons, and lasers. Oceanography (oceanology and/or聽marine science)聽covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and聽ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; as well as聽fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. The diversity of these topics reflect multiple disciplines that oceanographers merge to further knowledge of the world ocean and understanding of processes within: astronomy, biology,chemistry, climatology, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology and physics. Paleoceanography studies the history of the oceans in the geologic past, which is incorporated here also. Biogeochemistry involves the study of the chemical, physical, geological, and biological processes and reactions that govern the composition of the natural environment (including the biosphere, the cryosphere, the hydrosphere, the pedosphere, the atmosphere, and the lithosphere). In particular, biogeochemistry is the study of the cycles of chemical elements, such as carbon and nitrogen, and their interactions with and incorporation into living things transported through earth scale biological systems in space through time. The field focuses on chemical cycles which are either driven by or have an impact on biological activity. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorus cycles. Biogeochemistry is a systems science closely related to systems ecology. Weather forecasting - applied to climate science on a more local or regional scale -聽is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location, which humanity has attempted to predict accurately since the nineteenth century. Forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change. Analog techniques such as the El Ni帽o 鈥 Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), the Northern Annualar Mode (NAM) which is also known as the Arctic oscillation (AO), the Northern Pacific (NP) Index, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO). Climate models are used for a variety of purposes from study of the dynamics of the weather and climate system to projections of future climate. As shown above, to simply appeal to a scapegoat response such as聽鈥淚鈥檓 not a scientist鈥 or聽鈥渢he science isn鈥檛 settled鈥 demonstrates quite literally that the person/s putting forth such excuses are not aligning their perspectives with reality.聽 Read:聽鈥淚鈥檓 Not A Scientist Is A Dangerous Cop-Out鈥 (Slate) In Esquire鈥檚 editorial piece with Jason Box, a topic seldom covered by the world press is brought into clearer view.聽鈥榃hen the End of Human Civilization Is Your Day Job鈥 interviews several scientists, discussing the psychologically taxing demand of working so closely with a field in which the data and forecast predictions read like a scene from a Hollywood disaster movie.聽 And in the midst of a time when denial of evidence from legislative representatives in the U.S. who continually ignore our humanity鈥檚 biggest survival threat and fossil fuel-funded think tanks disseminate misinformation out to the public and through the halls of the U.S. Congress, it鈥檚 becoming increasingly difficult - to say the least - for reality to trump corporate influence. Former street artist Banksy created this piece of visual activism near the Oval bridge in Camden, north London. Credit: The Guardian; Zak Hussein/PA Box doesn鈥檛 mince words. From the esquire interview:聽 鈥淲e need the deniers to get out of the way. They are risking everyone鈥檚 future鈥. The Koch Brothers are criminals鈥. They should be charged with criminal activity because they鈥檙e putting the profits of their business ahead of the livelihoods of millions of people, and even life on earth. It鈥檚 unethical to bankrupt the environment of this planet鈥hat鈥檚 a tragedy, right? But I鈥擨鈥擨鈥檓 not letting it get to me. If I spend my energy on despair, I won鈥檛 be thinking about opportunities to minimize the problem.鈥 That last statement resonates deeply with us here at endeavorist.聽鈥溾hinking about opportunities to minimize the problem鈥 are precisely what Endeavorist.org allows for when utilizing every facet of the network鈥檚 utilities. Jumpstart the accumulation of additional funds to increase the $25 base fund for a Grant that can be awarded to a researcher who applies for it, helping them to fund a specific aspect of their research. Launch a Research Campaign and crowdfund the finances necessary to aid in a research project. Post a Call To Action for field work assistance, surveys, focus groups. We created Endeavorist to be accessible to everyone so that an ongoing network is developed out of a need to collaborate across all areas of science.聽 There鈥檚 never been a timely and frankly, a more dire era in the history of our civilization, for a combined effort on the problems that require our best efforts forward, together. Endeavorist meets these needs by providing a place which encourages cooperation where a person or team can communicate beyond time zones, borders, or the claustrophobic confines of government bureaucracy to tackle important challenges.聽 Join Endeavorist, and together, we can #freescience.

Mann is also the director of Penn State鈥檚 Earth System Science Center, authored over 170 peer-reviewed papers, and most notably, he co-authored the study which established the iconic 鈥渉ockey stick graph,鈥 a reconstruction of global climate communicating a general cooling trend over the last 1,000 years broken by an abrupt and precipitous spike that began in 1900. In the face of a nearly unanimous consensus on human-induced climate change, a rapidly warming planet, and data which not only revalidates these realities, but informs us that the change is occurring faster than our best models forecasted, the general public largely hears conflated opinions and biased assessments via the news media which either dull down the reality of climate change, or outright deny its existence.聽 According to the National Climatic Data Center, the world just saw its warmest winter ever鈥xcept for in one spot in the north Atlantic ocean (the deepest blue color above), which set a record for cold. Which is not good. (Credit: WashPost; NCDC) But what about the actual scientists and researchers studying our warming planet meticulously from the sea, ground, sky, and space? Let鈥檚 clarify what kind of science this is comprised of. Climate change/global warming data is determined and monitored amongst the collaboration of the following fields:聽 Earth science or geoscience (also considered to be a branch of planetary science) which studies the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. Earth scientists use tools from聽physics, chemistry, biology, chronology, and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of how the Earth system works.聽 Atmospheric science is comprised of meteorology, which includes聽atmospheric chemistry,聽atmospheric physics聽(focused on weather forecasting);聽climatology,聽which studies the atmospheric changes (long and short-term) that define average climates and their change over time via natural and anthropogenic climate variability;聽aeronomy, or,聽the study of the upper layers of the atmosphere, where聽dissociation and ionization are vital; and all of these fields encroach into the field of planetary science and the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the solar system.聽Experimental instruments used in atmospheric sciences include satellites, rocketsondes, radiosondes, weather balloons, and lasers. Oceanography (oceanology and/or聽marine science)聽covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and聽ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; as well as聽fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. The diversity of these topics reflect multiple disciplines that oceanographers merge to further knowledge of the world ocean and understanding of processes within: astronomy, biology,chemistry, climatology, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology and physics. Paleoceanography studies the history of the oceans in the geologic past, which is incorporated here also. Biogeochemistry involves the study of the chemical, physical, geological, and biological processes and reactions that govern the composition of the natural environment (including the biosphere, the cryosphere, the hydrosphere, the pedosphere, the atmosphere, and the lithosphere). In particular, biogeochemistry is the study of the cycles of chemical elements, such as carbon and nitrogen, and their interactions with and incorporation into living things transported through earth scale biological systems in space through time. The field focuses on chemical cycles which are either driven by or have an impact on biological activity. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorus cycles. Biogeochemistry is a systems science closely related to systems ecology. Weather forecasting - applied to climate science on a more local or regional scale -聽is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location, which humanity has attempted to predict accurately since the nineteenth century. Forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change. Analog techniques such as the El Ni帽o 鈥 Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), the Northern Annualar Mode (NAM) which is also known as the Arctic oscillation (AO), the Northern Pacific (NP) Index, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO). Climate models are used for a variety of purposes from study of the dynamics of the weather and climate system to projections of future climate. As shown above, to simply appeal to a scapegoat response such as聽鈥淚鈥檓 not a scientist鈥 or聽鈥渢he science isn鈥檛 settled鈥 demonstrates quite literally that the person/s putting forth such excuses are not aligning their perspectives with reality.聽 Read:聽鈥淚鈥檓 Not A Scientist Is A Dangerous Cop-Out鈥 (Slate) In Esquire鈥檚 editorial piece with Jason Box, a topic seldom covered by the world press is brought into clearer view.聽鈥榃hen the End of Human Civilization Is Your Day Job鈥 interviews several scientists, discussing the psychologically taxing demand of working so closely with a field in which the data and forecast predictions read like a scene from a Hollywood disaster movie.聽 And in the midst of a time when denial of evidence from legislative representatives in the U.S. who continually ignore our humanity鈥檚 biggest survival threat and fossil fuel-funded think tanks disseminate misinformation out to the public and through the halls of the U.S. Congress, it鈥檚 becoming increasingly difficult - to say the least - for reality to trump corporate influence.

From the esquire interview:聽 鈥淲e need the deniers to get out of the way. They are risking everyone鈥檚 future鈥. The Koch Brothers are criminals鈥. They should be charged with criminal activity because they鈥檙e putting the profits of their business ahead of the livelihoods of millions of people, and even life on earth. It鈥檚 unethical to bankrupt the environment of this planet鈥hat鈥檚 a tragedy, right? But I鈥擨鈥擨鈥檓 not letting it get to me. If I spend my energy on despair, I won鈥檛 be thinking about opportunities to minimize the problem.鈥 That last statement resonates deeply with us here at endeavorist.聽鈥溾hinking about opportunities to minimize the problem鈥 are precisely what Endeavorist.org allows for when utilizing every facet of the network鈥檚 utilities. Jumpstart the accumulation of additional funds to increase the $25 base fund for a Grant that can be awarded to a researcher who applies for it, helping them to fund a specific aspect of their research. Launch a Research Campaign and crowdfund the finances necessary to aid in a research project. Post a Call To Action for field work assistance, surveys, focus groups. We created Endeavorist to be accessible to everyone so that an ongoing network is developed out of a need to collaborate across all areas of science.聽 There鈥檚 never been a timely and frankly, a more dire era in the history of our civilization, for a combined effort on the problems that require our best efforts forward, together. Endeavorist meets these needs by providing a place which encourages cooperation where a person or team can communicate beyond time zones, borders, or the claustrophobic confines of government bureaucracy to tackle important challenges.聽 Join Endeavorist, and together, we can #freescience.
