“Data is the foundation of information ,knowledge, and ultimately , wisdom and informed action.

Is data truth? Not necessarily! Data can be inaccurate,incomplete,out of date, and misunderstood.For centuries,philosophers have asked,”What is truth?”,and the answer remains elusive.

On a practical level,truth is,to some extent,information of the highest quality-data, that is available,relevant,complete,accurate ,consistence,timely,usable,meaningful,and understood.

Organizations that recognize the value of data can take concrete,proactive steps to increase the the quality of data and information.”

What I liked about this definition, from the Data Management Association DAMA guide to the data management body of knowledge,is the precaution taken when defining the relation between information and truth in an organizational context ,these can be  noticed in the phrases “On a practical level” and “to some extent”!. While it can be an scientific way of writing still it amaze me in the knowledge era.

The second observation is about the first sentence,precisely about the order of Data,information,then  knowledge which is alright with me,but wisdom and informed action, it could make more sense  to me,without  the organizational context,if it was flipped so informed action and wisdom.

  • Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.[201]

Life is bad

  • Life is a bitch, and then you die.[146]
  • Better never to have been.[202]

October 18, 2013 at 9:15 am | Posted in Collage, Education paradigms, Mindfulness, Personal Knowledge Management, Well-being, ايضاحات | Leave a comment

Sonja Lyubomirsky is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside and author of The How of Happiness, a book of strategies backed by scientific research that can be used to increase happiness.

The premise of The How of Happiness is (1) that happiness is worth striving for, and (2) that 50 percent of a given human’s happiness level is genetically determined (based on twin studies),10 percent is affected by life circumstances and situation, and a remaining 40 percent of happiness is subject to self control

WHAT IS EPIGENETICS?
The development and maintenance of an organism is orchestrated by a set of chemical reactions that switch parts of the genome off and on at strategic times and locations. Epigenetics is the study of these reactions and the factors that influence them.
EPIGENETICS & THE ENVIRONMENT
The genome dynamically responds to the environment. Stress, diet, behavior, toxins and other factors activate chemical switches that regulate gene expression. Source: Learn.genetics Epigenetics

“We commonly accept the notion that  through our DNA we are destined to have particular body shapes, personalities, and diseases. Some scholars even contend that the genetic code predetermines intelligence and is the root cause of many social ills, including poverty, crime, and violence. ”

“Epigenetics is proving we have some responsibility for the integrity of our genome,” Jirtle says. “Before, genes predetermined outcomes. Now everything we do—everything we eat or smoke—can affect our gene expression and that of future generations.”

“Until recently, the pattern of an individual’s epigenome was thought to be firmly established during early fetal development. Although that is still seen as a critical period, scientists have lately discovered that the epigenome can change in response to the environment throughout an individual’s lifetime.”    Source : Discover magazine DNA Is Not Destiny
