The Science of Happiness

thrsienceofhappiness

“A free eight-week Science of Happiness course that will offer practical, research-backed tips on living a happy and meaningful life.”  ~ The Huffington Post

A-ROTFLWe all want to be happy, and there are countless ideas about what happiness is and how we can get some. But not many of those ideas are based on science. That’s where this course comes in. “The Science of Happiness” is the first MOOC to teach the ground-breaking science of positive psychology, which explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life

Starts on September 6, 2016

5192644573003776grandpa-and-child-smiley-emoticonStudents will engage with some of the most provocative and practical lessons from this science, discovering how cutting-edge research can be applied to their own lives. Created by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, the course will zero in on a fundamental finding from positive psychology: that happiness is inextricably linked to having strong social connections and contributing to something bigger than yourself—the greater good. Students will learn about the cross-disciplinary research supporting this view, spanning the fields of psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and beyond.

What’s more, “The Science of Happiness” offers students practical strategies for tapping into and nurturing their own happiness, bbq including trying several research-backed activities that foster social and emotional well-being, and exploring how their own happiness changes along the way.smilie-face

Researchers Analyze Effectiveness of Bullying Prevention Programs

dalhousie

A group of Canadian researchers have set out to analyse the effectiveness of bullying prevention programs in schools, finding that they would ultimately only recommend one of the programs out of seven studied.

Canadian-flag-background-for-Canada-map (2)Researchers at Dalhousie University have analysed the effectiveness of bullying prevention programs with the aim of improving lives for Nova Scotia children, and saving money for the province’s school boards.

Mac-mac-apple-busy-smiley-emoticon-000712-facebook“We’re hoping to better inform educational institutions about effective bullying prevention initiatives so that adolescents are better equipped to deal with bullying and peer victimization,” says Dr. John LeBlanc, associate professor of pediatrics at Dalhousie Medical School and staff pediatrician at the IWK Health Centre.

The analysis, which has been delivered to school boards across the province and Canada in the form of a toolkit, can also be used to better streamline resources dedicated to school-based bullying prevention programs.

“Currently, schools implement bullying  smileys-applaus-485909 prevention strategies without clearly knowing whether or not they’ll provide good value for the precious human and financial resources devoted to them,” says Dr. LeBlanc. “Our analysis was done to help schools – and other organizations working with youth – evaluate these programs with respect to effectiveness, cost, and overall fit.”

The team reviewed seven popular bullying prevention programs; some are used in Nova Scotia schools, and others were identified through a search of scientific literature. Of the seven, only one – WITS – could be recommended.

playing-golf-smiley-emoticon“WITS stands for walk away, ignore, talk it out, and seek help,” explains Ashley Chisholm, master’s candidate in the Department of Community Health & Epidemiology. “We found that WITS delivers stronger effects than other programs at a lower cost, and shows long‐term benefits. The program also has components that promote healthy relationships.”

The other six programs were resource‐intensive, yet delivered little or no reduction in bullying perpetration or victimization.

“These programs require hundreds or thousands of dollars in up-front costs for materials and trainers, in addition to the time put in by teachers and students that could be spent on the curriculum,” says Tanya Bilsbury, master’s candidate at the School of Public Administration. “Yet, we found that the actual effects of evidence-based programs were often very small or even absent.”

tablet“Of course, there will always be a place for individual and group strategies for those who bully or who are bullied,” says Dr. LeBlanc. “These targeted strategies can build upon school-wide programs that focus on creating safe and respectful climates, and programs that help youth develop their social and emotional skills.”

“This toolkit is a very useful aid to schools and others seeking to prevent bullying and cyberbullying, and the many negative consequences of this bullying,” says Dr. Wayne MacKay, former chair of the Nova Scotia Task Force on Bullying and Cyberbullying. “It’s clearly based on a thorough analysis of the evidence.”

Respect the Pink aims to teach youth about more than just bullying

PINK-KINGSTON2“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” ~ Andy Rooney

News – It was hard to go anywhere in Kingston on Feb. 24 without seeing pink, especially at the central branch of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL). The library hosted the second annual ‘Respect the Pink’ event in conjunction with Pink Shirt Day. While the weather was a bit treacherous, many still came out to spread the word about putting a stop to bullying.36-x-large-bendy-smiley-face-man-bendable-smiler-yellow-blue-pink-wholesale-bulk-buy-[3]-48058-p

The event, aimed at youth ages 12 to 24, was organized in conjunction with the City of Kingston, KFPL, the Boys and Girls Club, Community Living Kingston, Pathways to Education and Y2K and was developed by youth for youth. The evening included workshops, activities, socialising and, of course, pizza.

respect the pink“The event is designed to address bullying, but it is also about breaking down barriers and getting people to know each other more,” explained Lisa Pennock, adult facilitator for the youth voice table for Y2K. “Pink Shirt Day is generally geared towards younger youth and we wanted something that would work for teens and older youth.”

The event was a big hit last year and taught participants about issues like homophobia, transphobia and inclusion and even Islamophobia; the same themes were presented this year and some were even expanded.

a60da5ada2d6554f262bbb38ffa5830d“Last year we ran a workshop on Islamophobia because issues were coming up a lot. This year we chose to focus on incoming refugees and how to be welcoming in the community,” explained Noor Huda, youth facilitator for the youth to voice table at Y2K.

“I think youth really want to talk about these issues but they don’t know how, so we wanted to provide more of a forum for them.”

22One workshop also dealt with relationships and behaviours that are good and bad within them. Youth were asked to discuss issues like consent, power and even appearance.

“It was interesting to see that the qualities of a romantic relationship can be the same as the qualities of any other kind of relationship and we should hold all relationships to the same standards,” explained Rhapsody Blair, 14.

“Sometimes you let your partner get away with behaviour that you wouldn’t accept from friends and that shouldn’t happen.”

Of course, youth also learned about bullying and bullying prevention and many were happy to take part in order to combat bullying in their own lives and the lives of their peers.

“I just entered high school and I realized how much more bullying happens in high school than elementary school,” said Abbie Matheson, who also helped organized some of the event. “I thought going to something like this would help me understand it more and maybe teach me how to deal with these issues more.”

Awareness and compassion were emphasized during the event and for Chelsea Aalders-Madigan, 15, awareness was definitely the biggest take away.

pink-happy-heart-smiley-emoticon“Sometimes not a lot of people know what is happening with bullying because not a lot of people are educated about it,” she said. “But the more education there is, the more people will be willing to stand up against it and I hope that is achieved through this event.”

Pink

one-my-size2 PINK~PINK~PINK~PINK~PINK~PINK~PINK 

me-pink2pinkfacePink is any of the colours between bluish red (purple) and red, of medium to high brightness and of low to moderate saturation. Commonly used for Valentine’s Day and Easter, Pink is sometimes referred to as “the colour of love“, “the artist Pink” and now “Pink Shirt Day” in Canada falling this year on Feb 22, 2017.

A little history on the use of the word Pink

The colour “Pink” was first recorded in the late 17th century. Although Pink is roughly considered just as a tint of red, most variations of Pink lie between red, white and magenta colors. This pink-smileymeans that the Pink’s hue is somewhat between red and magenta. Lucretius used the word to describe the dawn in his epic poem “On the Nature of Things” (De rerum natura). Roseus is a Latin word meaning “rosy” or “Pink.”

My Thoughts on Pink Shirt Day

I first heard about the boys in Nova Scotia in 2009 after discovering an article on-line, since which I started to follow. After a couple years and having the opportunity to  read and learn more from past articles in the archives of Pink Shirt Day, there was one detail that seem to have got lost since the first article I read. It’s all about awareness and prevention of Bullying above all else but I noticed that one main detail from the original story over time seemed to had somehow got omitted smilie=countryfrom the original story line, which added to the soul purpose of “Pink Shirt Day”. In the first few articles the Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a Pink shirt to school was a member of the “LGBTQI Community” and Two Straight boys stood up for him, this is a fine example of good character, something that all youth should know or hear about, it needs to be spoken out loud. Once realizing this I became more interested and involved and started to follow along. I soon realized I was right and not everyone was aware of the complete history that lead up to that day in 2007, we need not forget how and why “Pink Shirt Day” was started, and make sure history remembers.

I posted my first article “Speak out! Stop bullying: Wear pink on April 10” for “DayofPink” on April 10, 2013, after realizing just how far the “Pink Campaign” has actually travelled. streghtieIt’s now known around the world as “The International Day of Pinkthe International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny, this year falling on April 13, 2016.

I would like to close by commending the two youth, in their mid 20’s now and all those of you who have dedicated your time and efforts to the “Pink Shirt Day Campaign” and the fight against Bullying because “Awesome” don’t get any better then you!

Coming Out On Facebook

yibada

Daily Average Of New American LGBT Members Triples In Past Year

th-degree

100_percent_happy_rainbowfacebook-rainbow-filter-icon2In connection with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) anti-bullying Spirit Day on October 15, Thursday, Facebook Research announced that the number of Americans who “come out” as homosexual on the social network is higher and increasing. The social media giant’s post included details such as numbers and locations of people coming out, which included those who changed their sexual orientation status. The daily average of new LGBT community members has tripled during the past year.

22Facebook reported that 6 million of the social {5700758472228864} network’s U.S users identify themselves as LGBT, including 800,000 coming out in the past year, according to USA Today. The daily average of Facebook users newly identifying themselves as gay or lesbian is three times higher than one year ago.

rainbow007In addition, the number of status changes skyrocketed on the day that the U.S Supreme Court made same-sex marriages legal nationwide, in June. The figure of “out” people surged 250 percent compared to last year’s National Coming Out Day.

The social network defines “coming out” in two ways. People can update their Facebook profile to show same-gender attraction, or choose a custom gender.

Facebook Research also reported that the number of Likes and follows for pro-LGBT pages and organizations are also increasing.

purple_crazy_eyes_smiley_face_plate-rf22d5362f2c24e0190e3ed41c9696af3_ambb0_8byvr_324The statistics of Americans coming out online differs in various regions. New York and Nevada have the highest figures, while Mississippi and Alabama have the lowest numbers, according to NBC News.

blue_purple_glitter_peace_sign_with_silver_borderEarlier this year Gallup released a nationwide poll revealing Americans believe that 23 percent of the country is gay or lesbian. However, it was a major overestimation. Just 3.8 percent of the population identifies themselves as a LGBT community member.
