Sharing a thought provoking read by Cass Sunstein: “Evolution favors the most cooperative — and the friendliest.” What if the ones that survive and thrive are not the fittest - but the ones who learn to be friendly, cooperative and see past the silly (societal some would say) divisions? I love reading his books and his articles and had the opportunity to attend his classes that have been just as exciting! *** How to pick a grad school for studying abroad? Naturally, one of the first steps should be checking the international academic rankings. A great idea for the second step is to do some research and see which ones of your most followed researchers work at which university. For example, for a long time I have been following the work of Cass Sunstein on how behavioural sciences (and behavioural economy) can be used for empowering changes. He is teaching at Harvard Law School - so by pursuing my degree there, I could attend his classes, talks and engage in discussions on the issues I’ve been so passionate about. https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2020-06-13/urban-foxes-are-evolving-that-s-good-for-homo-sapiens?fbclid=IwAR1Rv3FiQGkh3vFx9r0B2ZiDgfp8037-VEKY6m681B7Y6Wbeuv8VfzgaP7c

Survival of the friendliest! It definitely works for dogs, also the survival of the cutest. I guess, we the people are not above it also. The romantic ideals of the lone hero are not very practical 🤔

Yeah, but romantic may not be intended to be practical ;-)

The US sports rights market is valued close to $88 billion dollars with the current broadcast deals, where as Europe with it’s top 5 football leagues has an evaluation of €21 billion. Although one point to consider is that American Sports rights have longer contracts compared to the European counterparts #sports #sportsrights #OTT #TVrights

Hi Mangirdas. I think US has looked at sports with business objectives since the 1980s NBA, where as Europe has got into sports business much later, previously it was just management. Adding to that, data has been important since the 2000s in the USA where as Europe have initiated this process in 2010.

When I was 13 we had an assignment for art class. We all had 3 weeks to make a paper greek temple at home and bring it to school. While everyone else was doing a great job, I was struggling with mine: one column shorter than the other, unstable foundation, weird roof, the whole thing just falling apart. Things got worse when my classmates started bringing to school their projects a few days before the deadline: beautiful, solid, sofisticated temples. Pressure got real and I was out of time and temple-less. The night before the final day I cried, threw tantrums, questioned the meaning of art classes and school in general, and eventually gave up. I was ready to go back to school with nothing and get 0 points (which would eventually ruin my grades). And then something happened. I decided to give it another try and build a simple, tiny temple, only this time not for the art teacher but for me. I wanted to make something that I really liked and enjoy the process. And I did. The next morning I took it with me to school. I knew I would get at least 1 point (for the effort) and that was better than nothing. Not only did I get the highest number of points, but the art teacher decided to exhibit it in the school entry hall for two months. I knew I had learned a life lesson back then. Took me a few years though to understand what really went on and what did the magic
