    Maybe the reason that money doesn’t make us happy is that we’re always spending it on the wrong things, and in particular, that we’re always spending it on ourselves.

    If you think money can’t buy happiness, you’re not spending it right. The implication is not, you should buy this product instead of that product and that’s the way to make yourself happier. It is, in fact, that you should stop thinking about which product to buy for yourself and try giving some of it to other people instead.

    Think less about, ‘How can I spend money on myself?’ and more about, ‘If I’ve got five dollars or 15 dollars, what can I do to benefit other people?’ Because ultimately, when you do that, you’ll find that you’ll benefit yourself much more.

    On this Cyber Monday, we don’t have any promo codes or delivery drones, but what we do have is pretty awesome: the super smart Harvard Business professor Michael Norton talking about how to buy happiness.

    In his talk, Michael shares years of research on how money affects our happiness, revealing that buying that present for your mom might be healthier than you think.

    I believe that revolutionizing higher education is a must - higher education should be a right, not a privilege.

    KCM will always have a special place in my heart. The people…I can’t emphasize this enough but the PEOPLE in KCM are the foundation. I always feel so encouraged and loved every time I go to a GBM. The small talk, the hugs, the smiles, the high-fives, the “umm…where the heck have you been??” comments…haha it’s nice. Thank you, KCM. I feel quite happy/energized. Second to last midterm of Fall 2013 tomorrow—let’s do this! 

     
  9. What a powerful message. Respect.

    Mod Snake

    by Txchnologist staff

    From the biorobotics lab at Carnegie Mellon University comes this modular snake robot. According to the researchers, using the form of a snake allows the robot to navigate freely in many different environments, including networks of pipes and the gaps between walls. It can also climb stairs and trees.

    I say this to everyone that I talk to but I seriously work with some of the nicest, down-to-earth people at UCSD. Co-workers/friends/family..it’s a blended title. Jose, I guess you’re alright. (You’re still on my list though)

    Oh, get a job? Just get a job? Why don’t I strap on my job helmet and squeeze down into a job cannon and fire off into job land, where jobs grow on little jobbies?!
