Image Labeler – SBNR Daily 2-23-11

Today’s Goodness: Do you have some time to waste? Check out Google Image Labeler. It is a feature of Google Search that allows you to label images and help improve the quality of Google’s image search results, but in the style of a match game. After being paired with a partner, you will both view the same set of images. Next, provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner’s label, you receive points. The more descriptive your label, the more points you get. It is a lot of fun, but beware, it is addictive!

Have some fun with Google Image Labeler.

We are listening! ~The SBNR Team

Today’s Teaching:


“…To listen is to continually give up all expectation and to give our attention, completely and freshly, to what is before us, not really knowing what we will hear or what that will mean. In the practice of our days, to listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”

1. Sadhguru: Does Spirituality Make You Special?
“Spirituality is not about becoming special. It is about becoming one with everything. This wanting to become special — this disease — has come to people simply because they have not recognized the value of the uniqueness of their being.”

2. Kevin Griffin: Karma and Recovery
“Recovery means working with the positive powers. The faith or belief involved in Step Two is when we “come to believe” that it’s actually worth changing our behavior and orientation. Once we believe that change is possible and that it’s worth making the commitment to a new way of living, we are ready for Step Three.”

3. Alan Robbie:
God at the Oscars: Academy Award-Nominated Films Explore Spiritual Themes

“God makes appearances in a number of Oscar-nominated films, but the Almighty doesn’t play a leading role on screen or preach a theologically orthodox message from the clouds. Rather, spirituality plays a supporting role in those films that either focus on characters’ quest for redemption or provide a fresh take on the eternal battle between good or evil.”
