Feel Good Packet: #4

Whoa! Here's the Feel Good Packet, 4th edition. Got a little off track there, but here we go, on to another week of good feelings and rocking the week. Enjoy this collection of about 2 weeks of FGP-goodness!!!

A new model of empathy: the rat - In this article, scientists discover that rats are capable of showing empathy for their fellow rats. 
"The free rat, occasionally hearing distress calls from its compatriot, learned to open the cage and did so with greater efficiency over time. It would release the other animal even if there wasn’t the payoff of a reunion with it. Astonishingly, if given access to a small hoard of chocolate chips, the free rat would usually save at least one treat for the captive — which is a lot to expect of a rat."

Keeping Hate, Pessmism, And Negativity Out Of Your Life - Great article my future room-mate posted on my wall for me. Great advice!

Who said art can't help save the world?

Beautiful street art by artist Aja Washington-Jones

A somewhat beautiful look at our human origins, and how far we've come.

Have a great week!
