Presentation: Digital Distraction – Optimizing Human-ness

In a time when we are constantly connected yet isolated, searching for meaning yet distracted from our task, it becomes increasingly important to consciously cultivate an awareness of how our use of technology is affecting us.

Expectations of speed, availability, and increased output are impacting our ability to truly innovate. As our expectations require us to act increasingly machine-like (analytical, logical, information-centered), our abilities to empathize, play, understand nuance, create beauty, and synthesize the big picture are at risk of being lost.

We’ll explore ways of remaining conscious to this effect, and liberating ourselves from the poor inner habits our devices encourage.

I never heard of any such incident.Ok, assuming that the wesetrn closet breaks and the person / lady fell into the broken part. Even if some one fell, they may get scratches or bruises due to the falling down. Of course they are not falling from 3 metres heigh, they are falling from a maximum height of one feet. This lady if fell into the broken closet, at the worst case may get small deep cut in the back side of the thighs, that is below the buttocks.But this lady has a deep, very deep and wide cut in the back side of the thighs , as well as in the front part of the thigs also. that means a deep cut at the part of the thigh below the stomach. This could have been possible, only when the lady after falling into the broken closet, get up and again fell into the closet with the front portion of the body facing the broken closet.This brutal injury of the lady with so deep and wide cuts, looks like some one has cut this ladys thighs with a broad and big sword or knife.Its painful joke that Dondu sir showers his Aaseervaathams on readers to try themselves by falling into broken wesetrn closet. How to get a broken wesetrn clost? Do we have to break the closet in our house with hammer? Even if we fell on a broken closet, we may end up with minor bruises only.Dondu sir is all out to prove that this injury is due to closet? HoW did the lady got a wound in the front portion of her Thighs? Did any one broke the wesetrn clost, kept the broken piece in the front portion of the thigh of the lady and hacksawed her front thigh?Can Dondu sir leave up his anger, instead see the reason?
