Working for Peace

What is your favorite feature of this radio accessory? In my opinion, I like the design job – It is cooler than an Inuit’s underpants!

As Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness which created it.”
There can be no question that the words we choose and the metaphors we use reinforce our state of consciousness – our view of the world.
If we choose to use war as a metaphor for business, we see others in the business world as not merely “competition”, but actually “combatants”. When we talk about “beating the competition”, we reinforce the view of business as a zero-sum game, in which in order for there to be “winners”, there have to also be “losers”.

We spend more of our waking hours working than engaged in any other activity. Some of us even spend the majority of our waking hours working. If we want to change the world in a significant way, we must do so in the course of our work.
Do you want to create more peace in the world? I know I do.
If you want to create peace in the world, you must first create peace within yourself, your home, your community and, I believe, your business. Consider again the Einstein quote above. Consider again that we spend more of our time involved in business than anything else.

How can one possibly spend all day long dealing in a business world of winners and losers, of beating the competition, and so on, and then expect at the end of the day to truly help create peace in the world?
Is it any wonder our current political leaders don’t seem to really understand how to create peace through any other means than superior firepower, or at least the threat of it? Consider their training ground.
So long as we continue to use military paradigms in business, we will continue to operate at that level of consciousness in all of our relationships – personal, community and international. Until we change that, we will continue to breed world leaders who are driven by nationalistic and ideological pride, rather than human compassion and a desire for mutual understanding.

I find it positively repulsive that businesspeople use the thinking of Sun Tzu and Machiavelli as guides to business. If I could accomplish one thing in my life to truly change the world, it would be to replace every copy of The Art of War on business bookshelves with The Art of Peace and The Prince with The Little Prince.

If we want peace in the world, we must work for it, every minute of every day, in everything we do.

Sony NWZ-WH303 headphones review
Love

It can even blast songs out of the built-in speakers, if you really want to annoy everyone on the bus. But can it compete with the likes of the Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear in terms of performance?

Sony NWZ-WH303: Size and build

The Sony NWZ-WH303 is a chunky old pair, but then it has to be to incorporate the 4GB onboard memory. Sling it round your neck and the leather earcups are big enough to double as a nice chin rest. If subtlety is your thing, look elsewhere.

We tested the white pair, which was a bit gaudy for our tastes. But it also comes in black.

It’s a solid pair of headphones, and feels like it’s built to take a knock or two. But it’s a bit plasticky, and feels cheap next to the likes of the Bose AE2.

The Sony NWZ-WH303 weighs 292g, which won’t be too noticeable in your bag. It’s worth noting it doesn’t fold up like the Sennheiser PX 200-II or the B&W P3 so it’s not the most portable pair around.

Sony NWZ-WH303: Comfort

The faux-leather earcups and headband make the Sony NWZ-WH303 a comfy pair to wear – after a while, you can easily forget you’re wearing headphones at all, which is a real plus, especially given how chunky a pair it is.

It also doesn’t make your ears too hot after prolonged wearing, which we’ve found on some other on-ear pairs, like the Sol Republic Tracks HD.

Sony NWZ-WH303: Durability

Despite being a bit plasticky, the Sony NWZ-WH303 feels sturdy enough to survive being chucked in a bag along with your other gadgets. The only delicate parts are the controls on the bottom of the right earpiece, but even they should withstand a fair bit of punishment.

Sony NWZ-WH303: Sound quality

So how does it actually sound? Not fantastic, to be honest. There’s a real loss of detail, especially when you play songs through the speakers rather than the headphones. The guitars on AC/DC’s For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) sounded very fuzzy, and this was even more noticeable when pumped up loud. Bass is heavy, but lacks punchiness, and the treble is a bit underwhelming.

They let in a lot of background sound too, which is disappointing for an on-ear pair. Walk around town in them, and you’ll have to crank the volume up to block out the traffic noise. Switch to speaker mode, and they can go loud enough to annoy the bus, or entertain a few pals. But it’s not going to start a party.

The controls are a bit limited. For a start, they’re on the underside of the earcup, which isn’t the most intuitive place for them. They can only control songs stored on the built-in memory, so you can’t use them to control tracks played from an MP3 player.

You can’t fast forward within a song either, you have to skip to the next track or folder. You also can’t play songs from your MP3 player through the Sony NWZ-WH303’s speakers, only tracks stored on the onboard memory. All of which seems a bit of an oversight.

But getting songs onto the flash memory is a doddle. Plug the Sony NWZ-WH303 into your computer, and it’ll appear as an external hard drive would. Then you just drag and drop, or install the Content Transfer program.

Sony NWZ-WH303: Verdict

The Sony NWZ-WH303 gets full points for ingenuity, and it’s a fair price given that it’s effectively three products in one. But it’s more of a (headphone) jack of all trades, and master of none.
