Western Australia Police

A 36-year-old man arrested Wednesday in connection with the apparent abduction of 4-year-old Cleo Smith was taken to hospital after self-harming while in police custody, Western Australia Police said Thursday.

Speaking to Perth radio station 6PR, Detective Superintendent Rod Wilde described the suspect’s injuries as “not life threatening.”
The man has now been returned to a police station in Carnarvon and is cooperating with inquiries, Wilde told a later news conference.
The man is expected to be charged Thursday afternoon, Wilde said. He will then be taken to Carnarvon Magistrates Court.
Police on Thursday refused to say what charges he will face but said they believe the man acted alone and “spontaneously.”
Cleo Smith was found in the early hours of Wednesday morning in a locked house in Carnarvon, a town in the state of Western Australia, some 30 miles from the campsite where she was apparently abducted close to three weeks ago.
Police said Cleo was found in a room in the house with the lights on, awake and playing with toys. Police are yet to interview the girl, but specialists have arrived in Carnarvon from Perth to do so.
On Thursday, Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan said he met with Cleo and her family, describing her as “very well adjusted, considering (her ordeal).”
“She has done a bit of sleeping and a lot of eating, a lot of lying around and cuddling,” McGowan said.

Probably the most powerful book I’ve read. Ever. It completely transformed the way I understand and appreciate the ultimate freedom we have: to choose how to respond in any given situation.

Pink never disappoints but this is his all-time classic. Pulling from Psychologists Richard Ryan’s and Edward Deci’s self-determination theory — Pink captures so beautifully what keeps us motivated.

And that is simply having a sense of autonomy, getting better all the time — aka mastery, and aligning with our purpose.

After entrepreneurial burnout, I went back to school and came across this book. Turns out that while artists, musicians, and athlete all experienced flow on the regular — so do knowledge workers. Finding and sustaining flow has become a personal mission that makes me feel lighter every single day.

Recommended by the director of Autonomy, the UK’s only future of work think tank, this concise read lays out four possible futures and perhaps makes the most compelling case for a universal basic income I’ve ever read.

Picked this one up for the title and it does not disappoint.
