Weekly Snapshot Issue: 42 – 23 August 2019

Case we’re reviewing…

In parenting cases the Court needs to consider certain principles and provisions in deciding parenting Orders. However, are all these provisions applicable in parenting cases between parent and non- parent parties?  

This question was considered in depth in  Potts & Bims and Ors [2007]

Podcast episode we’ve enjoyed…

Ask anyone what the opposite of distraction is and they’re most likely to blurt out … focus?
This way of thinking was challenged by Behavioural Scientist, Nir Eyal in the latest episode of “The Science of Success”. He discusses how distraction is not really the new modern dilemma that we’ve been taught to believe but has rather been grappled with since the age of time. Eyal suggests that the opposite of distraction is in fact traction/action and goes on to discuss how much of the “folk psychology” remedies to distraction don’t actually work.

Foreign phrase we can relate to…

積読 ( Tsundoku) means “accumulate,” but refers to someone who keeps buying books. They pile up, but they’ve yet to be read. That said, the kanji 読 (“to read”) gives the idea that the owner does intend to read them someday! There are so many memes about this for bookworms, but the Japanese captured it in one word.

Person we’re intrigued by…

In last week’s snapshot, we reviewed the documentary “Heal”.  One of the main Researchers interviewed was Joe Dispenza. His story is almost unbelievable; but if anything he piques our curiosity about neuroscience and epigenetics and how such knowledge can be used every day to enjoy a more fulfilled life and evolve our consciousness.
