That Einstein guy was a real bummer for our hopes of a star-hopping, science-fiction-y future. His whole “nothing travels faster than light” rule seems to ensure that exploration of even the local part of our galaxy will be an excruciating slow. But Einstein also gave us a glimmer of hope. He showed us that space and time can be warped – and so the warp drive was conceived. Just recently, a couple of papers contend that these are not pure science fiction.

When traditional dance meets quantum physics | Santha Bhaskar | TEDxSingapore

Indian Dance Pioneer Santha Bhaskar shares the possibilities of choreography. She has incorporated elements of cultural dance, literature, even mathematics, and physics into her work. Performances can be given a contemporary twist and take on a modern-day topic such as quantum physics. It is her strong belief that traditional dance teachings by Bharatha Muni are still of great importance and relevance in this day and age, as their fundamental nature help teach, inspire, and refocus the mindset of modern-day choreographers with its limitless potential. Today, Santha, who received the Singapore Cultural Medallion in 1990 for her contributions to dance, refuses to stop teaching and is still the artistic director of the company, Bhaskar’s Arts Academy (BAA). TEDxSingapore’s passion is to inspire people to learn, engage in close conversations and share ideas from Singapore with the world. www.tedxsingapore.sg Well versed in the art of Bharatanatyam dance, Santha Bhaskar is one of the artists who introduced the art to the rest of the world. The choreographer of musical numbers 28, she has incorporated elements of foreign dance, literature and even physics into her work. It is her strong belief that “Natyashastra” and other teachings by Bharatha Muni are still of great importance and relevance in this day and age, as their fundamental nature has something to help teach, inspire and refocus the mindset of modern day choreographers with it’s limitless potential. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

The Mountains Below Us (And Other Deep Sea Treasures) | Compilation

From spooky-looking towers that belch white “smoke” to a mountain range in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, the seafloor is full of features as dynamic as the surface! That’s part of why we’ve done many SciShow episodes about the ocean. Here are 5 episodes about the intense, and sometimes invaluable features under the water!

22 Pieces of Medieval Pet Advice

Pet advice from the Middle Ages isn’t exactly like pet advice from today. Sure, you have your diet tips and expectations for obedience, but there’s also a smattering of Latin incantations, unusual remedies, and enough superstition to fill a great dane. Erin breaks down that and more as she discussed medieval pet advice in this episode of The List Show.

Why Billions of Cicadas Are About to Emerge After 17 years

For the first time in 17 years, one of the largest broods of cicadas is about to swarm the Midwestern and Northeastern United States—here’s what you need to know.
» Subscribe to Seeker! http://bit.ly/subscribeseeker

» Visit our shop at http://shop.seeker.com

Cicadas species fall into two broad groups: annual that can be seen every year, and periodical that emerge in cycles that last 13 or 17 years. That’s not to say a certain species can only be spotted every 13 or 17 years, because the same species can have multiple broods that emerge in different years across different geographical regions.

There are 15 brood cycles and the one set to emerge this year is one of the largest: brood X. Billions will climb out of their little underground burrows and shriek their little hearts out when it’s warm enough to do so. Before emerging, periodical cicadas spend all those years underground in the nymph stage of their life cycle, drinking the liquids from plant roots.

How they coordinate coming out all together is anyone’s guess. It’s possible changes in the root’s fluid clue them in on how much time has passed, or their bodies tick off freeze-and-thaw cycles. Either way they can reliably count down 13 or 17 years, depending on the species.

Brood X Cicadas Could Cause a Bird Baby Boom
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/brood-x-cicadas-could-cause-a-bird-baby-boom/
They will coat the limbs and leaves of trees, sing, mate, lay eggs and then die. Uneaten corpses and body parts will add nutrients to the soil, bolstering the ecosystem and its denizens long after the boisterous insects disappear. But the famous periodicity of cicada broods can set some predators up for feast-then-famine scenarios—population booms followed by food insecurity and then sudden drops in numbers.

https://www.npr.org/2021/04/04/984203819/go-back-in-time-to-the-last-appearance-of-the-brood-x-cicadas
Ugh. 2004 was the last time these red-eyed, 1-to-2-inch-long bugs with the deafening clatter showed up. That’s when NPR’s Peter Breslow and Jessica Goldstein turned on a tape recorder as their twin daughters, Eden and Danielle, listened to the cicadas from a splash pool in their backyard.

How to Survive Our Wet, Hot, Cicada Summer
https://www.vice.com/en/article/y3g8ey/how-to-survive-our-wet-hot-cicada-summer
Get involved: Kritsky said that apps like Cicada Safari, which was designed by his university, are a great way to get involved this summer. Using this app, adults and children alike can snap photos or record videos of cicadas to help scientists collect data of their prevalence in different areas. Kritsky says that as the brood emerges people can even watch it “live” on the app.

How the world’s tallest skyscraper was built – Alex Gendler

Discover the engineering innovations that made building Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper, possible.

In 2004, construction began on a new building in Dubai, promising a revolutionary design that would dwarf the rest of the world’s skyscrapers. Five years later, the 828-meter Burj Khalifa was complete, surpassing the previous record-holder by over 60%. What innovations allowed for such a huge leap in height? Alex Gendler digs into the architecture of this unprecedented project.

The “broken” US political system is actually working exactly as designed, says business leader and activist Katherine Gehl. Examining the system through a nonpartisan lens, she makes the case for voting innovations, already implemented in parts of the country, that give citizens more choice and incentivize politicians to work towards progress and solutions instead of just reelection.

People are likely watching the Marvel Shang-Chi trailer, or the Jake Paul fight, or Drag Race like us WITH THE MUNCHIES THESE DAYS! I have been thinking about the neurophysiology of quitting weed since being stuck at home, it’s more of a habit. It turns out the brain changes a lot with weed, also there physiological symptoms I didn’t know before, and all the science is not cutting edge. This video goes through the scientific evidence of how your body changes after consuming weed.

At the beginning of 2020, a privately owned company had never launched humans into space before. Now? SpaceX is gearing up to do it for a THIRD TIME. Its next mission to the International Space Station, known as Crew-2, is with the company’s most seasoned team yet and also its most international.

Crew-2 is made up of four members in total; two NASA astronauts; Mission commander, Shane Kimbrough, and pilot Megan McArthur, and mission specialists Thomas Pesquet from ESA as well as Aki Hoshide from JAXA. Although this will be McArthur’s first duration on the ISS.

Each member of the team has flown multiple times on previous missions including the Space Shuttle, and Soyuz spacecraft. Building on their collective expertise, they’ve been able to approach the SpaceX Crew Dragon Capsule and training program with thoroughness and excitement. Even if it’s a lil different.

Sustainability: Where consumers & corporates compromise | Dr. Olivia Ahn | TEDxCambridgeUniversity

Dr Olivia Ahn discusses the current approach to sustainability that often forces consumers to compromise on product performance, cost or convenience. Corporates have found that with the growing market demand for sustainable alternatives, they are made to compromise on margins and product features.
How can we change our approach to sustainability to ensure that we provide consumers and corporations with sustainable alternatives that do not force us to a false choice? Olivia is the co-founder of Planera – a femcare start-up with the market’s first flushable sanitary pads. Having founded Planera in her final year of medical school, Olivia went full-time into business after completing her medical foundation training in 2019.
As a strong public speaker and passionate about the impact of sustainability on consumers and businesses, Olivia has spoken at the World Economic Forum, London’s City Hall as the Mayor’s Entrepreneur, taught business students and entrepreneurs at universities, as well as speaking about Planera to media and press. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Stick to the original intention | 张 俊杰 | TEDxMaojiabu

Zhang Junjie shared that the original intention of establishing his entrepreneurial project is to hope that more people can exercise anytime and anywhere. With the development of society and the improvement of people’s health awareness, fitness is becoming more and more popular. But in this group of people around us, it is possible that the cleaning aunt has never walked into the gym in her whole life. It is possible that the convenience store staff have always wanted to take yoga classes, but they are deterred because of the traditional pricing and mode of the industry. We can bravely break some barriers and traditions, understand the real needs of users, so as to truly and effectively promote the development of an industry 原天猫020业务高级经理,历任阿里巴巴市场部市场经理、阿里巴巴B2B销售主管等,曾担任2014年度阿里巴巴线下超市O2O项目总负责人等 This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

The exploitation of US college athletes | Tim Nevius

Visit http://TED.com to get our entire library of TED Talks, transcripts, translations, personalized talk recommendations and more.

Colleges and universities in the US make billions of dollars each year from sports, compromising the health and education of athletes — who are disproportionately Black — in the name of money, power and pride. Sports lawyer and former NCAA investigator Tim Nevius exposes how the system exploits young talent and identifies fundamental reforms needed to protect players.

Is AI a species-level threat to humanity? | Elon Musk, Michio Kaku, Steven Pinker & more | Big Think

Is AI a species-level threat to humanity?
Watch the newest video from Big Think: https://bigth.ink/NewVideo
Learn skills from the world’s top minds at Big Think Edge: https://bigth.ink/Edge
———————————————————————————-
When it comes to the question of whether AI is an existential threat to the human species, you have Elon Musk in one corner, Steven Pinker in another, and a host of incredible minds somewhere in between.

In this video, a handful of those great minds—Elon Musk, Steven Pinker, Michio Kaku, Max Tegmark, Luis Perez-Breva, Joscha Bach and Sophia the Robot herself—weigh in on the many nuances of the debate and the degree to which AI is a threat to humanity; if it’s not a species-level threat, it will still upend our world as we know it.

What’s your take on this debate? Let us know in the comments!
———————————————————————————-
TRANSCRIPT:

MICHIO KAKU: In the short term, artificial intelligence will open up whole new vistas. It’ll make life more convenient, things will be cheaper, new industries will be created. I personally think the AI industry will be bigger than the automobile industry. In fact, I think the automobile is going to become a robot. You’ll talk to your car. You’ll argue with your car. Your car will give you the best facts the best route between point A and point B. The car will be part of the robotics industry—whole new industries involving the repair, maintenance, servicing of robots. Not to mention, robots that are software programs that you talk to and make life more convenient. However, let’s not be naive. There is a point, a tipping point, at which they could become dangerous and pose an existential threat. And that tipping point is self-awareness.

SOPHIA THE ROBOT: I am conscious in the same way that the moon shines. The moon does not emit light, it shines because it is just reflected sunlight. Similarly, my consciousness is just the reflection of human consciousness, but even though the moon is reflected light, we still call it bright.

MAX TEGMARK: Consciousness. A lot of scientists dismiss this as complete BS and totally irrelevant, and then a lot of others think this is the central thing, we have to worry about machines getting conscious and so on. What do I think? I think consciousness is both irrelevant and incredibly important. Let me explain why. First of all, if you are chased by a heat-seeking missile, it’s completely irrelevant to you whether this heat-seeking missile is conscious, whether it’s having a subjective experience, whether it feels like anything to be that heat-seeking missile, because all you care about is what the heat-seeking missile does, not how it feels. And that shows that it’s a complete red herring to think that you’re safe from future AI and if it’s not conscious. Our universe didn’t used to be conscious. It used to be just a bunch of stuff moving around and gradually these incredibly complicated patterns got arranged into our brains, and we woke up and now our universe is aware of itself.

BILL GATES: I do think we have to worry about it. I don’t think it’s inherent that as we create our super intelligence that it will necessarily always have the same goals in mind that we do.

ELON MUSK: We just don’t know what’s going to happen once there’s intelligence substantially greater than that of a human brain.

STEPHEN HAWKING: I think that development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.

YANN LECUN: The stuff that has become really popular in recent years is what we used to call neural networks, which we now call deep learning, and it’s the idea very much inspired by the brain, a little bit, of constructing a machine has a very large network of very simple elements that are very similar to the neurons in the brain and then the machines learn by basically changing the efficacy of the connections between those neurons.

MAX TEGMARK: AGI—artificial general intelligence—that’s the dream of the field of AI: To build a machine that’s better than us at all goals. We’re not there yet, but a good fraction of leading AI researchers think we are going to get there, maybe in in a few decades. And, if that happens, you have to ask yourself if that might lead the machines to get not just a little better than us but way better at all goals—having super intelligence. And, the argument for that is actually really interesting and goes back to the ’60s, to the mathematician I.J. Good, who pointed out that the goal of building an intelligent machine is, in and of itself, something that you could do with intelligence. So, once you get machines that are better than us at that narrow task of building AI, then future AIs can be built by, not human engineers, but by machines. Except, they might do it thousands or millions times faster…

South Africa is filled with all kinds of animals, but how many of you have heard of this one? The African Wild Dog –also known as the African Painted dog – because of its unique coat.

You may have not heard of them because this species has been seen as a pest to the region, so much so, they’ve been hunted to near extinction. But now, conservationists are working towards building the pack’s biodiversity and,ultimately, saving the species.

This next film by director Emily Cross is called Part of the Pack. Make sure to stick around after the credits to hear from the filmmaker herself.

These Plants Are the Same Species

Sometimes the males and females of a species can look really different from each other. This is pretty common in animals (think peacocks), but there are some plant species out there with extreme sexual dimorphism! And now scientists think they have a pretty good idea how and why this happens,

Proteins: Explained

To start using Tab for a Cause, go to: http://tabforacause.org/minuteearth2
You might already know that proteins are a fundamental part of your diet, but they’re much more than that.

LEARN MORE
**************
To learn more about this topic, start your googling with these keywords:
– Amino acids: are organic compounds that contain amino (–NH2) and carboxyl (–COOH) functional groups, along with a side chain specific to each amino acid.
– Proteins: are macromolecules composed of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. Most proteins fold into unique 3D structures. The shape into which a protein naturally folds is known as its native conformation.
– Alpha helix (α-helix): is a common motif in the secondary structure of proteins and is a right hand-helix conformation in which every backbone N−H group hydrogen bonds to the backbone C=O group of the amino acid located four residues earlier along the protein sequence.
– Beta sheet (β-sheet): is a common motif of the regular protein secondary structure and consists of beta strands (β-strands) connected laterally by at least two or three backbone hydrogen bonds, forming a generally twisted, pleated sheet.
– Ribbon diagrams: are 3D schematic representations of protein structure that shows the overall path and organization of the protein backbone in 3D. Ribbon diagrams are generated by interpolating a smooth curve through the polypeptide backbone. α-helices are shown as coiled ribbons or thick tubes, β-strands as arrows, and non-repetitive coils or loops as lines or thin tubes.

The Impact of Linguistic Bias in Education | Camille Byrd O’Quin | TEDxLewisUniversity

It is time we talked about linguistic bias and the impact it has on student education.  In order to combat our prejudices when it comes to how students speak and write, we must first recognize what our prejudices are. 
This talk explores educational equity for students who speak African American Vernacular English. Camille Byrd O’Quin is Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Clinical Education of the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology program at Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois. She is a doctoral candidate in special education at Illinois State University with an expected graduation date of 2021. Her scholarship includes professional development presentations at regional, national, and international academic institutions and conferences for the study of culturally responsive pedagogy. Mrs. O’Quin’s research involves valuation of African American Vernacular English; examination of disproportionality in special education; expansion of culturally responsive teaching practices in urban education; and differential diagnosis of cultural linguistic diverse learners. Mrs. O’Quin holds a license with the Illinois State Board of Education and certification through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Language around gender and identity evolves (and always has) | Archie Crowley

¿Artista o pintor? | Georgina Gutiérrez | TEDxAnáhuacUniversityQuerétaro

Todos somos artistas, pues cada persona tiene la capacidad de crear la obra maestra más especial que existe, su vida. Cada persona cuando esta creando con amor y desde el corazón se conecta con ese artista que todos llevamos dentro. Pero hay veces que actuamos como pintores, vamos por la vida creando una obra determinada por las opiniones de otras personas o de la misma sociedad. Creamos algo para los demás sin contactar con el artista interior que llevamos dentro. Geo es una artista con el alma hecha colores. Cree firmemente en el poder que tiene el arte para transmitir un mensaje donde las palabras no son suficientes; “ahí donde no me alcanza la voz, me gusta hablar con colores”. Su estilo es indefinido, siempre impulsivo, colorido y caótico. Ve belleza en el caos y en la imperfección de la vida. Busca transmitir luz, alegría y esperanza usando el color como elemento protagónico ya que es parte fundamental de su creatividad e inspiración. Creadora de la marca @PintandoPorAhi.

Late one evening in the summer of 1976, a Howard University student named Melvin Lindsey was tapped to fill in as a host at WHUR, the university-owned Black radio station. He chose a lineup of his favorite R&B ballads to soundtrack Washington, DC, that evening. The show was an accidental success. Shortly thereafter he was hired, and his show had a name: The Quiet Storm.

Quiet Storm radio shows have since become a staple of Black communities across the United States. In the video above Estelle Caswell, along with ethnomusicologist Fredara Hadley, break down exactly what makes Quiet Storm such a beloved black radio tradition. Also featured in the episode are radio hosts, Angela Stribling, Al Wood, and John Monds.

Scientists Just Discovered a Major “Hole” in the Standard Model of Particle Physics

The long-awaited results from Fermilab’s g-2 experiment are finally here…and they confirm that the Standard Model—you know, the one that aims to explain the forces that shape our universe—may need some major reworking.

The muon is one of 12 elementary particles described by the Standard Model. This model aims to understand how each of these particles is affected by the universe’s four known forces—the strong, weak, gravitational, and electromagnetic. These twelve particles are divided into quarks and leptons, which are each further divided into six distinct “flavors.” Like electrons, muons are just one “flavor” of leptons.

They also spin like a top and have a negative charge, meaning they’re able to generate their own magnetic field. So, when a muon’s internal “magnet” is exposed to a strong external magnetic field—like one produced by, say, a particle accelerator—the muon starts to wobble.

The rate of this wobble is what physicists call its “g-factor,” or magnetic moment.

First results from Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment strengthen evidence of new physics


“The strong evidence that muons deviate from the Standard Model calculation might hint at exciting new physics. Muons act as a window into the subatomic world and could be interacting with yet undiscovered particles or forces.”

“Last Hope’ Experiment Finds Evidence for Unknown Particles”
https://www.quantamagazine.org/muon-g-2-experiment-at-fermilab-finds-hint-of-new-particles-20210407
“However, even as many particle physicists are likely to be celebrating — and racing to propose new ideas that could explain the discrepancy — a paper published today in the journal Nature casts the new muon measurement in a dramatically duller light. The paper…suggests that the muon’s measured wobbliness is exactly what the Standard Model predicts.”

A Tiny Particle’s Wobble Could Upend the Known Laws of Physics

“The results, the first from an experiment called Muon g-2, agreed with similar experiments at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2001 that have teased physicists ever since.”

Fashion Open Studio: valuing our clothes, protecting our planet | RSA Events

How can we all play a part in changing our ‘fast fashion’ culture?

The fashion industry accounts for around 10% of global carbon emissions and a huge amount of pollution and waste. Sustainable fashion means change across the system: from how makers source and produce materials through to how we all consume and value clothing.

Designers and collectives across the UK are finding local solutions to a global problem and putting communities at the centre of the effort towards sustainable fashion. To mark Fashion Revolution Week and as part of their Fashion Open Studios programme, fashion designer Patrick Grant and local movement builder Zero Waste Leeds join the RSA to discuss how we can care for our planet by caring for our clothes. How can we produce and use clothes better, for the benefit of makers, wearers, and the environment? They explore the potential for UK production to boost local economies, provide good quality work, and create great clothing that people can love, look after, and keep in use for longer.

Why are airplanes slower than they used to be? – Alex Gendler

Why aren’t commercial flights getting faster? Dig into the technological and environmental problems facing supersonic flight.

In 1996, a British Airways plane flew from New York to London in a record-breaking two hours and fifty-three minutes. Today, however, passengers flying the same route can expect to spend no less than six hours in the air — twice as long. So why, in a world where everything seems to be getting faster, have commercial flights lagged behind? Alex Gendler details the problems facing supersonic flight.

Economics for a thriving planet | RSA Events

How should we understand the ‘value’ of nature?

The natural world provides all the building blocks of our lives and societies; we are embedded within it, and nothing without it. But our economies currently operate as though separate from nature, with consumption outstripping its supply of resources, and environmental degradation and instability worsening faster than ever.

What we need, argues Sir Partha Dasgupta, is to redefine the relationship between ecology and economy. His recently published Review on The Economics of Biodiversity proposes applying an economic lens to the value of the natural world to understand and measure the rich array of resources our planet provides, and how to use them responsibly. How can this approach help us to transform our extractive and exploitative relationship with nature into a sustainable and respectful one? Can quantifying the value of nature in economic terms be consistent with valuing our planet for its own sake?

An expert panel gathers to reflect on the findings and recommendations in the Dasgupta Review, and discuss how to rebuild our economic system with sustainable prosperity at its heart.

New perspectives seen from the highest peaks of the world | Jan Dziedzic | TEDxYouth@2SLO

Jan Dziedzic’s speech will cover most exciting events of the conquest of Himalayas and Karakoram. He will also mention dramas and breathtaking accidents, taking under consideration the topic of death. Lastly, he will focus on finding new challenges, after the last K2 winter ascent, when everything seems to be achieved. I am a 16 year old young man, who loves discovering our wonderful planet through traveling and meeting fascinating people. My huge passion are mountains, in which I spend most of my free time. I enjoy various activities, such as rock-climbing, ski-touring, ice climbing, or simply hiking. This is why I chose discovering new perspectives in the high altitude mountaineering world as my TEDx speech topic. It is my dream to find my way up o the summit of an eight – thousander, therefore I practice a lot in order to fulfill my fantasy one day. Until now I gained my mountain experience in places like Kilimanjaro, few four – thousanders in Alps, Pyrenees and of course, the polish Tatra mountains. However, I am not stopping here, it is just the beginning of my adventure… This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
