Edwin Rutsch is, as far as I can tell, the world's greatest purveyor, or "scooper" of empathy-related news.Edwin is a master at utilizing online resources to collect and link up with the those who conduct research, develop curricula or write about empathy, compassion and related topics. He uses "Scoop it!", a service for "scooping", organizing and sharing news and resources. See his page on Scoop it! - http://www.scoop.it/u/edwin-rutsch'
