Jeremy Rifkin on the Empathic Civilization

Thanks Rafa, for turning me on to this great series of animated lectures! Every one I watched was interesting, but I particularly loved the clarity of this one.



They're produced by The RSA, a fascinating group in itself. Sort of reminds me of TED, but British, and 250 years old.

the overflow is set to hidden on your theme's content wrapper.

Make the video smaller and you should be fine. Currently the video is 580px wide. If you go into the HTML view and manually restrict the size on the video by taking about 20% off the height and width you'll be golden.

All media that you post should be no more than 410px wide. for your current theme.

Have a great Tuesday!

Thanks Gerry! Duh I should have figured out to edit the html, but as a non-coder, I was looking for a beautifully rendered button. DIY, o'course...

Wish I could DIY my new site!

Whoa, didn't realize I'd come across Jeremy Rifkin again. After Beyond Beef and Entropy, the guy keeps tellin' it like it is. Empathy...ok, I see it now.
