why liquid water was so vital to the emergence of life on Earth?

Big History Project Threshold 5: Life

The Web site of teh project -> https://www.bighistoryproject.com/bhplive
Explore 13.7 billion years of shared history and consider the big questions about our Universe, our planet, life, and humanity. From the big bang to modern day to where we are going in the future, big history covers it all.

Hello everyone
I just wanted to know about Bill Gates philosophy and I found this : 14 rules for kids. What do you think ?
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it! 
 
Rule 2: The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. 
 
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. 
 
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. 
 
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. 
 
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. 
 
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. 
 
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. 
 
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. 
 
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. 
 
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
 
Rule No. 12:   Smoking does not make you look cool. It makes you look moronic. Next time you're out cruising, watch an 11-year-old with a butt in his mouth. That's what you look like to anyone over 20. Ditto for "expressing yourself" with purple hair and/or pierced body parts.
 
Rule No. 13:   You are not immortal. (See Rule No. 12.) If you are under the impression that living fast, dying young and leaving a beautiful corpse is romantic, you obviously haven't seen one of your peers at room temperature lately.
 
Rule No. 14:   Enjoy this while you can. Sure parents are a pain, school's a bother, and life is depressing. But someday you'll realize how wonderful it was to be a kid. Maybe you should start now. You're welcome.

Hi everyone,

Big History Project

Many species have powerful brains, but what makes humans different? How is it that humans can build cities and invent medicines while other species can’t?

Two words: Collective Learning: http://bh-p.co/19cBwJL

collaborative learning refers to methodologies and environments in which learners engage in a common task where each individual depends on and is accountable to each other
Hi Gérard, everyone
yes, I agree the future lies in collective learning. All the human beings connected together could form a huge brain and it would be very helpful for the humanity development.

The robots are different from human beings

Message  MurielB le Lun 9 Déc - 22:44

The major difference that can be cited between a robot and a human is the lack of feelings and emotions in the former
There are many more differences.

Anyway, will they play a major part in the future ?
