Quote: "More than a thousand years ago, rebel Vikings and other settlers fleeing from Norway settled on a craggy, uninhabited island in the north Atlantic: Iceland. There they built a new world pretty much from scratch, with a new legal system, a new social order and — eventually — a new language. They also created stories about who they were. At first these stories were oral, passed on generation to generation, but with the coming of written language, and in a monumental act of human will, their stories were collected, transcribed, became literature. A thousand years later, the Icelandic language has barely changed, and today their stories are read and understood much as they were a millenia ago. Philip Coulter time-travels into the heart of the Icelandic Sagas. Part 2 airs Tuesday, June 19." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

Velshi is a Kenyan-Canadian living in America, and has seen civil discourse eroded as people no longer hear what their neighbours are trying to say.

Radio Philosophy History Environment/Nature June 19, Tuesday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Iceland: A Map of the Heart. Part 2. Quote: "More than a thousand years ago, rebel Vikings and other settlers fleeing from Norway settled on a craggy, uninhabited island in the north Atlantic: Iceland. There they built a new world pretty much from scratch, with a new legal system, a new social order and — eventually — a new language. They also created stories about who they were. At first these stories were oral, passed on generation to generation, but with the coming of written language, and in a monumental act of human will, their stories were collected, transcribed, became literature. A thousand years later, the Icelandic language has barely changed, and today their stories are read and understood much as they were a millenia ago. Philip Coulter time-travels into the heart of the Icelandic Sagas. Part 1 aired Tuesday, June 12." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

Quote: "Hello all bio-hackers and longevists of Toronto and GTA, Thanks again to all who came out to the last event and made it a success. Great discussion and feedback - I know I walked away having learned something new ! As promised at the last event, our next meet-up will be on the topic of life and healthspan extension, covering the science and the business sides of the industry. Over 100 companies are working on solutions in this field, which has been identified as the hottest place to invest by a number of notable investors.
Some questions to think about: - Will the science of ageing catch up with the aspiration of ultra-long lives? - What are the aging biomarkers? - Will we see viable anti-aging solutions in our lifetime?
Note: I just got back from a trip overseas where I had a chance to meet with Brian Kennedy in Singapore and get his thoughts on the field of longevity - which I will definitely share as well.
What we’ll do: This will be an interactive and thought-provoking presentation, lead by me + discussion, with the purpose of unpacking the anti-aging and longevity industry. If you’ve ever been curious about health and lifespan extension – this meet-up will be the perfect opportunity to delve in, learn, ask questions, and discuss !
What to bring: Your enthusiasm and curiosity !
Important to note: If you would like to bring a guest, please have them register for this meet-up, so that I have a better idea of the attendees and numbers, as there is limited space at the venue.
Looking forward to seeing you there !
P.S. If you'd like more background/context before the meet-up, check out my compiled list of top 10 talks on longevity: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/want-live-younger-longer-10-must-see-talks-human-andreiuk-mbiotech/"

Quote: "An audio-visual presentation introduced by John Webster John’s multi-faceted presentation – which includes extracts from his DVD Shelley’s Golden Years in Italy - gives an unrivaled insight into Shelley, and reveals the extent to which humanist ideals animated his work. With Shelley verses presented in a cycle of songs (‘an interesting and enjoyable way to encounter the lyrics’), a narration voiced by the renowned poet Benjamin Zephaniah, and images from Shelley locations in Italy, this is an excellent opportunity to discover the scope and ambition of the poet who looked forward to a democratic, pluralist and secular future. John has been presenting the event to humanist groups in the UK since June 2016, and his DVD has been praised by Professor John Carey, one of the UK’s sharpest critics, and a leading opponent of obscurity and over-intellectualism in art and literature. An encounter with a great mind and a resolute humanist who thought beyond the difficult times he lived in to imagine a new future."

Why is it common knowledge that we saved runaway slaves from the United States, but few know that Africans and indigenous peoples were bought, sold and exploited, right here? In the first of a two part series, contributor Kyle G. Brown asks how slavery was allowed to continue for some 200 years, and be one of the least talked-about aspects of our history. Visiting an unmarked slave cemetery in Quebec, and pacing the streets where people were sold at auction blocks in Halifax, he retraces the history of an ignominious business that has been all but absent from our history books.

Philosophy Talk June 30, Saturday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Linda Zagzebski: Virtues of the Mind.
Location: Ryerson University, POD 372, 350 Victoria St, Toronto (https://www.ryerson.ca/maps/).
Quote: "Epistemology is the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature, conditions, and extent of human knowledge. It asks questions like: "What is knowledge?", "What does it mean to say that someone knows, or fails to know, something?", "Does knowledge depend on context?", "What is it to be a good or responsible knower?", "What makes a belief, or disbelief, properly justified?", "Is justification internal or external to one's own mind?", "Are there limits to what we can know?", "Can we know anything at all?", and so on. A vast array of sophisticated views have been developed in response to problems such as these. Epistemology also deals with issues to do with the creation and dissemination of knowledge in particular areas of inquiry.
This is the second meetup of our series on major publications in epistemology. This week we're discussing a selection from Virtues of the Mind: An Inquiry into the Nature of Virtue and the Ethical Foundations of Knowledge, a groundbreaking book by the philosopher Linda Zagzebski when it was published in 1996.
For context, we'll also discuss the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry on "Virtue Epistemology". Please read as much of these as possible before our discussion.
