LIVING Unreleased Successes | Lori Pelzer | TEDxTaraBlvd

Unreleased successes are places within where the dreams, goals, innovations, ingenuity, and unrealized potential reside. Unreleased successes are an undiscovered state; yet to be released out to the world. There is a process of discovering and searching within ourselves for more.

In this very moment, each of us is standing in the middle of our own acres of diamonds. If we only have the wisdom and patience to intelligently and effectively explore ourselves, we will find our possibilities and potential.

Defining values is one thing, living them is another | Aaron Hurst | Big Think

Defining values is one thing, living them is another

OVERVIEW
Defining corporate values is increasingly important to organizations and society—which is why consulting firms are making millions of dollars helping organizations define their values.
What we’re seeing consistently, says social innovator Aaron Hurst, is this is not working.
You can print values on posters and talk about them at conferences, but these values often fail to become part of the fabric of the organization. They remain upper-management-speak.

You could start to fix that problem in one hour, says Hurst. Try his recommended exercise: Connect your employees in pairs and ask them to talk about how a given value has shown up in their career, what does it mean to them? Values are only legitimate if everyone in your company can tell genuine stories about how those values have shown up in their daily jobs.
———————————————————————————-
AARON HURST
Aaron Hurst is a globally recognized entrepreneur who works to create communities that are empowered to realize their potential. He is the CEO of Imperative, a B Corp advocating for Purpose-Oriented Workers and supporting the organizations that embrace them. Hurst is the author of The Purpose Economy (2014) and a regular advisor and thought partner for many global brands.
———————————————————————————-
AARON HURST: I think we’re recognizing more and more the importance of values. And when you ask people about their preferences for work and where they want to work, they often cite they want a company that has strong values that are aligned with theirs. So you see more and more CEOs, more and more leaders, investing in the articulation of their corporate values.

You see consulting firms making millions of dollars helping organizations, you know, define their values. What we’re seeing consistently is this is not working. What’s happening is CEOs are defining the values of the organization. They’re putting them on a beautiful poster boards. They’re putting them on websites. They’re promoting them out there. They might be getting on a stage at a large conference for their employees and sharing the values and sharing why they matter to them. Maybe they’re going down to that next layer of leaders and saying, we really want you to connect to these values. We want you to be able to tell stories about why those values matter to you. But even still, at that point, you’re not getting the values lived by the organization.

The majority of people can’t name the values of their company, much less actually be able to figure out how to change their job to align with those values. If you truly want to bring your values as an organization to life, everyone in your company needs to be able to tell stories about how those values show up in their daily job. If inclusion is one of your values, every employee needs to say, ‘How does that show up on my job? Why does that matter to me?’

You know, if integrity is a value of your company, every employee needs to be able to articulate how that shows up in their work. And this is not as challenging a process as you may first think. The simple process of connecting your employees in pairs and having them talk about how has a given value shown up in their career, what does it mean to them?

Maybe the two of them think about that in a different way. And they can actually have a really meaningful conversation about what integrity means to you versus them. That helps them truly understand what that value is. And then to see: How does it show up in their job today and how could they do more around that value?

So picture in one hour if every employee in your organization sat down with a colleague and had a conversation about one of your values, and really went in-depth, and talked about how they see it differently, how it shows up for them, how they plan to build it into their work, how that one hour would completely transform your organization.

The 13th Amendment: Slavery is still legal under one condition

New videos DAILY: https://bigth.ink

Join Big Think Edge for exclusive video lessons from top thinkers and doers: https://bigth.ink/Edge

———————————————————————————-

The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolished slavery—but it still remains legal under one condition. The amendment reads: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” Today in America, big corporations profit of cheap prison labor in both privatized and state-run prisons. Shaka Senghor knows this second wave of slavery well—he spent 19 years in jail, working for a starting wage of 17 cents per hour, in a prison where a 15-minute phone call costs between $3-$15. In this video, he shares the exploitation that goes on in American prisons, and how the 13th Amendment allows slavery to continue. He also questions the profit incentive to incarcerate in this country: why does America represent less than 5% of the world’s population, but almost 25% of the world’s prisoners? Shaka Senghor’s latest venture is Mind Blown Media.

———————————————————————————-

SHAKA SENGHOR

In 1991, Shaka Senghor pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and spent the next 19 years behind bars, seven of them in solitary confinement. Today, Senghor has become a vocal advocate for prison reform, and tackling the problem of mass incarceration, in all its complex ugliness, head on. Senghor’s memoir, Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison, was released in March 2016 and debuted on The New York Times Best Seller List as well as The Washington Post Best Seller List.

———————————————————————————-

TRANSCRIPT:

Shaka Senghor: So prisons in America specifically are some of the biggest, most dysfunctional businesses we have in our society, and they are a business because of the cheap and free labor.

When you read the 13th Amendment—that basically was the amendment that broke through slavery and freed the men and women who were enslaved at the time—there is a clause in there that allows for the re-enslavement of people in the event that they’re convicted of a crime. And so in prisons throughout our country, you have people who are working for basically free, and if they’re not working for free they’re working for wages that, if we saw that happening in another country, we would be very critical of.

When I was in prison I worked for $0.17 an hour; that was my starting rate working in the kitchen. But there are also big corporations who invest in prison labor because they can get this labor for $1.50 an hour. The sad part about it is that, in turn, they don’t even hire these men and women when they’re actually released from prison. Everything in prison has inflated costs. It costs us—inside prison, when I was inside—anywhere between $3 and $15 for a 15-minute phone call.

We don’t have to pay that out here in free society. There is a way that we can send emails to men and women inside prison, and it cost five cents every time we send that, whereas out here in society we can send emails without any charge. And so there are so many ways that the prison is exploited: the cheap labor, the cost of services and goods, and it’s a model that, sadly and unfortunately, has affected a large segment of our society.

I think most people aren’t aware of why the business models of prison exist, because most of our society has been left clueless in regards to how our judicial system works. And it’s largely been through the effect of campaigns that politicians have run for years, this whole idea that one of the greatest fears you should have is crime in America. When you’re operating out of a space of fear you’re not thinking clearly, so you’re not willing to examine things that are right in front of us.

And so the way that the prison system has developed and evolved over the years, is it originally started as government-run, state-run institutions, and then people started seeing investment opportunities when the states and couldn’t keep up with the budgetary cost of incarcerating so many people. We currently have over two million men and women incarcerated throughout the country, and we represent five percent of the world population, yet we incarcerate 25 percent of the world’s incarcerated people.

And so, at some point, states could no longer keep up with those budgets, private investors moved in and seized an opportunity, and then they started structuring laws in a way that ensured that people continue to be incarcerated for the mo…

Scientists Just Proved the Existence of ‘Liquid Glass’

First predicted nearly 20 years ago, researchers have finally (and accidentally) proved the existence of a new state of matter: ‘liquid glass’.

Glass is not a very slow moving liquid as some like to claim, unless we’re talking cosmic time scales, but it is an unusual solid. While crystals tend to line up in neat orderly patterns, glass plays by different rules. Its structure is random and unpredictable, so it’s known as an amorphous solid. While we tend to think of the silica based material used for windows and phone screens as glass, any rigid amorphous solid can be one. Plastic, for example, is a glass too.

Why glass forms this way, why it doesn’t line up into neat rows except under theoretically impossible conditions—that is the mystery that keeps drawing scientists back to this material. And that’s why one group based out of Germany decided to try something new. They mixed plastic particles that ranged from one to ten micrometers in diameter with a solvent to form what’s called a colloid. A solvent is just a substance in which materials can dissolve to form a solution and colloids can be anything from jam to milk.

Colloids can form glass and are easy to study because the particles in them are much bigger than atomic scale and can be observed under a microscope. From there, scientists can draw conclusions about what’s happening in other materials at smaller scales. Glass experiments with colloids are hardly new, but until now they had always been done with spherical nanoparticles.

Scientists Have Created a New State of Matter: ‘Liquid Glass’

“‘Liquid glass’ may sound like a flashy new lipgloss or a slick decorative material, but it’s actually something much more substantive: a new state of matter.”

Glass Is Sorta Liquid, Sorta Solid, and Fully Weird. Here’s the Secret.
https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/a33432389/glass-structure-liquid-solid-science/
“People who investigate scientific topics either love or hate glass, which is a confusing none-of-the-above unicorn: neither fully liquid nor fully solid, exhibiting some properties of each, but nothing conclusive. New science may finally help us understand why glass looks like a liquid deep down, but is structurally sound enough to be part of our homes and other structures.”

Researchers report new state of matter described as ‘liquid glass’
https://phys.org/news/2021-01-state-liquid-glass.html
“Using a model system involving suspensions of tailor-made ellipsoidal colloids, the researchers uncovered a new state of matter, liquid glass, where individual particles are able to move yet unable to rotate—complex behavior that has not previously been observed in bulk glasses.”

Why squiggly careers are better for everyone | Helen Tupper & Sarah Ellis | TEDxLondonWomen

Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis met as ambitious students, keen to make their mark on the working world. Yet, after years of striving for promotions and pay rises, they realised that the traditional career ladder wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. In fact, it was holding them back from their true potential. Now, Helen and Sarah are champions of squiggly careers, shifting the focus from titles to talents, from career plans to possibilities, from learning that is limited by level to learning that is limitless for all. Helen and Sarah invite us all to embrace this new way of working and become advocates of squiggly careers.
Helen Tupper and Sarah Ellis are the founders of Amazing If – an award-winning company with an ambition to make careers better for everyone. They are the co-hosts of the UK’s no.1 careers podcast, Squiggly Careers, which has had over 1m downloads, and are authors ofThe Sunday Times number one bestselling business book, The Squiggly Career. Before launching Amazing If, they led teams in organisations including Virgin, Microsoft, Barclays and Sainsbury’s. Helen is a trustee for Working Families charity and Sarah is Co-Chair of the Mayor of London Workspace Advisory Group.

The Cost of Love | Hayley McGee | TEDxNewcastleCollege

How can we know if the cost of love is worth is? Writer and performer Haley McGee was on the phone with her credit card company, promising to pay her bill by having a yard sale, when she realised the only items she could sell were all gifts from her various ex-boyfriends. What followed was a year-long exploration of the cost of love. Haley consulted with experts, interviewed her exes, worked with mathematician to create a formula that translates sentimental value into cold, hard cash and performed an autobiographical play about the process. In this talk Haley chronicles this journey and reveals what can be gleaned from applying mathematics to heartache.

Why we do not need elitism in education | Sol Gamsu | TEDxNewcastleCollege

The UK is famous for elite education. Mention education and the UK abroad and people will probably think of Oxford, Cambridge or the private schools that have educated many world leaders. But is this actually a good thing? Who benefits from an educational system which concentrates financial and cultural wealth into a handful of institutions? Is this model of unequal prestige, selection and hierarchy actually compatible with a desire for a more equal society? Other more egalitarian systems of education are possible and necessary for a positive future. Moving beyond elitism in education is the educational challenge of this century. I am a sociologist and a geographer of education with a strong commitment to the politics of education and envisaging alternative futures for education and society more broadly. My interests lie at the intersection of sociology, geography and history and the central theme running through my work is how structures and experiences of power and inequality in education are reproduced over time and through different local and regional geographies.

How To Reinvent Public Speaking | George Andriopoulos | TEDxDerryLondonderry

A satirical look at the world of public speaking through the eyes of TEDx organizer and multi-time TEDx speaker, George Andriopoulos. George hypothesizes that the problem with public speaking is that a large amount of stages provide a platform for speakers to sell, which creates a precedent for the wrong kind of impact. Enter TEDx, a platform for spreading ideas with the caveat that the speakers MUST follow the “TED Commandments.” No selling. No political agenda. No religious agenda. No bad science. Can the TED Commandments be the answer that will save the future of public speaking? Explore this idea of hopeful change as we journey through the dichotomy of “the power of the voice” versus “the power of the stage.” George Andriopoulos is the award-winning founder and CEO of Launchpad Five One Six, a New York based management consulting firm providing organizations with the tools and resources to innovate and thrive. George is veteran of the stage as a keynote, motivational, and soon to be three-time TEDx speaker delivering talks that spark inspiration and change. George also owns a digital marketing agency, is the host of “The Launchcast,” a top rated podcast about leadership, and has recently begun providing leadership coaching services through The Leadership Experience, his company’s leadership coaching division.

George also provides public speaking/writing coaching as a guest coach on other programs. He is the executive producer of TEDxFarmingdale and he co-produced TEDxDeerParkWomen in 2020. A co-founder of the non-profit Shannon’s Fight that provides financial aid to families in medical crisis, George also volunteers with the speaker’s bureau at Ronald McDonald House Charities. George’s first book, “Once Upon a TEDx,” will be released in 2021, fresh off of his win as 2020 Business Executive of the Year from IAOTP.

Language finds a way | Hannah Little | TEDxNewcastleCollege

What can science fiction teach us about the origins of human language? In this talk, Hannah will take us on a quick comedic tour of how humans might go about solving the seemingly impossible task of communicating with aliens, and what this sci-fi themed thought experiment can tell us about how language may have originally come about in our ancestors. Considering this “language grounding” problem not only shines light on human origins, but also poses one of the most difficult problems for artificial intelligence. How can we communicate without any pre-existing communication system, conventions or shared knowledge? I am a senior lecturer in Science Communication. I teach at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate levels on topics including digital communication, public speaking, and research methods. I also teach on science in public spaces, including comedy, games and citizen science.

At the level of research, my main interests are the use of methods from cultural evolution to look at how scientific information is transmitted online, in the lab, and in the real world. Current research projects are looking at escape rooms, twitter and science comedy.

Why Putin wants Alexei Navalny dead

Navalny’s movement is unlike any in recent history.

Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

In 2006, a lawyer named Alexei Navalny started a blog where he wrote about corruption in his home country of Russia. It’s the most prominent problem under the regime of Vladimir Putin, who has ruled Russia since 2000. Putin has systematically taken over the country’s independent media, oligarchy, elections, and laws to cement his own power and wield corruption to his advantage.

That’s what Navalny set out to expose. And in 2010, he published a groundbreaking investigation into a state-owned transportation company, Transneft, which was funneling state money into the hands of its executives. The post launched Navalny into politics.

By 2016, he had become the face of Russia’s opposition movement, run for mayor, and was running for president against Putin himself. Navalny was unifying Russia’s opposition like no politician had before. That’s why the Kremlin tried to kill him. Navalny survived the assassination attempt, launching a movement never before seen in Russia.

Depression and anxiety: How inequality is driving the mental health crisis | Johann Hari

New videos DAILY: https://bigth.ink

Join Big Think Edge for exclusive video lessons from top thinkers and doers: https://bigth.ink/Edge

———————————————————————————-

Expressions like “feeling down” or “feeling low” are more literal than we think, says Lost Connections author Johann Hari. A 30-year field study of wild African baboons by the incredible Stanford University professor Robert Sapolsky has shown that there is a remarkable relationship between depression, anxiety, and social hierarchies. Male baboons—who live in a very strict pecking order—suffer the most psychological stress when their social status is insecure, or when they are on the bottom rung, looking up at the luxuries of others. Does it sound familiar yet? “If you live in the United States… we’re at the greatest levels of inequality since the 1920s,” says Hari. “There’s a few people at the very top, there’s a kind of precarious middle, and there’s a huge and swelling bottom.” It’s no coincidence that mental health gets poorer as the wealth gap continues to widen: depression and anxiety are socioeconomic diseases. The silver lining is that this relationship has been discovered. Could an economic revolution end the depression epidemic? And, most curiously, what can we learn from the Amish on this front? Johann Hari is the author of Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions.

TRANSCRIPT:

Johann Hari: When I feel depressed, like loads of people I say, “I feel down,” right?

And as I was learning about the causes of depression and anxiety for my book ‘Lost Connections’ I started to realize—I don’t think that’s a metaphor. There’s this amazing professor at Stanford called Robert Sapolsky who, in his early twenties, went to live with a troop of baboons in Kenya. And it was his job to figure out: when are baboons most stressed out?

So his job was to hit them with little tranquilizer darts and then take a blood test and measure something called cortisol, which is a hormone that baboons and us release when we’re stressed. And baboons live in this hierarchy—so the females don’t, interestingly—but the men live in a very strict hierarchy. So if there’s 30 men, number one knows he’s above number two. Number two knows he’s above number three. Number 12 knows he’s above number 13. And that really determines a lot; it determines who you get to have sex with, it determines what you get to eat, it determines whether you get to sit in the shade or you’re pushed out into the heat. So really it’s significant where you are in the hierarchy.

And what Professor Sapolsky found is that baboons are most stressed in two situations. One is when their status is insecure. So if you’re the top guy and someone’s circling which comes for you, you will be massively stressed.

And the other situation is when you feel you’re at the bottom of the hierarchy, you’ve been kind of humiliated. And what Professor Sapolsky noticed—and then it was later developed by other scientists—is, when you feel you’ve been pushed to the bottom, what you do is you show something called a submission gesture.

So you, baboons will raise— I say “you,” I assume no baboons are watching this, maybe they are—a baboon will put its body down physically or put it’s head down or put its bottom in the air and it will cover its head. So it’s clearly seems to be communicating: “Just leave me alone. You’ve beaten me, okay? You’ve beaten me.”

And what lots of scientists, like Professor Paul Gilbert in Britain and Professor Kate Pickett and Professor Richard Wilkinson, also in Britain, have really developed is this idea that actually what human depression is, in part—not entirely, but in part—is a form of a submission gesture. It’s a way of saying, “I can’t cope with this anymore,” right. Particularly people who feel th…

This Massive Super Earth Is Almost As Old As the Universe

In the ever-growing hunt for exoplanets, astronomers have recently discovered that one of the oldest stars in the Milky Way actually hosts a hot, rocky ‘Super-Earth’… when it shouldn’t.

Following the Big Bang, scientists suspect that the universe solely consisted of lightweight elements, like hydrogen, helium and traces of lithium. Meaning that only gaseous planets could be formed in the early Universe. So, it’s no surprise that everyone’s jaw literally hit the floor when scientists found a 10 billion year old star hosting a rocky planet.

The star is known as the creative name TOI-561, and the planet? TOI-561b. This host star / planet pairing is a bit of an anomaly because the two are found in a structure of the Milky Way known as the thick disk. With the help of data collected by NASA’s Kepler space telescope, astronomers estimate the thick disk to be about 10 billion years old.

In order to form a rocky planet, heavier elements like carbon, iron, and even magnesium are needed. Heavier elements weren’t originally thought to have formed until the first stars did, roughly 200 million years after the Big Bang. These metals are formed through fusion reactions in the hearts of stars, then expelled when a star dies in a supernova explosion. Once released into the universe, the elements can continue the great circle of life… at least, from a star’s perspective.

Debunking the myth of the Lost Cause: A lie embedded in American history – Karen L. Cox

Examine the myth of the Lost Cause: a campaign created by pro-Confederates after the Civil War to promote the lie that they seceded for state’s rights.

In the 1860’s, 11 southern states withdrew from the United States and formed the Confederacy. They seceded in response to the growing movement for the nationwide abolition of slavery. Yet barely a year after the Civil War ended, southern sources began claiming the conflict was about state’s rights. How did this revisionist history come about? Karen L. Cox examines the cultural myth of the Lost Cause.

Why we need to know #HowToMeToo | Naomi Seligman | TEDxAlpharettaWomen

Even seasoned warriors for social justice can struggle to come to terms with sexual abuse in their own lives. Naomi Seligman knows because she’s one of them. Three years after Harvey Weinstein’s exposure spawned the #MeToo movement, it’s time to adapt and expand our thinking about abusers and survivors and learn #HowToMeToo. That means not only taking action but also developing a larger network of support and expertise so other survivors, famous or not, can win back their voices and take back their agency. Naomi is a powerhouse communications executive who has helped bring down corrupt politicians, undermined the NRA and its allies, fought for gender equity, and crafted crisis and litigation strategies for corporate leaders, elected officials, and high-profile advocacy organizations. Her passion is to help those in need to find their voice and advocate for change. As a sexual assault survivor, she has come to realize that those people include herself.

Why These Hidden Organs Keep You From Falling Over

How exactly are your ears connected to your sense of balance? In the final episode of season 2, Patrick breaks down what the connection is and the outsized role hidden anatomy plays in this important sense.
» Subscribe to Seeker! http://bit.ly/subscribeseeker
» Watch more Human! http://bit.ly/HUMANplaylist
» Visit our shop at http://shop.seeker.com

Anatomists typically divide the ear into three main sections: the outer, middle, and inner ear. The outer ear includes everything you see on the surface plus the ear canal — mostly elastic cartilage wrapped in skin that’s rich with sebaceous oil glands and ear wax glands.

At this point, the purpose of the ear is just to collect sound waves, kind of like how a satellite dish is concave to collect radio waves. Those sound waves rattle the eardrum, or tympanic membrane, an extremely thin membrane that amplifies and transmits sound waves to the three smallest bones in our bodies — the hammer, anvil, and stirrup or malleus, incus, and stapes if you want to use Latin.

Then those vibrations wiggle the cochlea in the inner ear, which transforms vibrations into nervous impulses that travel to the brain and get interpreted as your favorite Tiktok song.

Human ear
https://www.britannica.com/science/ear/Anatomy-of-the-human-ear
“The human ear, like that of other mammals, contains sense organs that serve two quite different functions: that of hearing and that of postural equilibrium and coordination of head and eye movements. Anatomically, the ear has three distinguishable parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear.”

How does our sense of balance work?
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK279394/
“The ear is a sensory organ that picks up sound waves, allowing us to hear. It is also essential to our sense of balance: the organ of balance (the vestibular system) is found inside the inner ear. It is made up of three semicircular canals and two otolith organs, known as the utricle and the saccule.”

How Do We Hear?
https://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/how-do-we-hear
“Hearing depends on a series of complex steps that change sound waves in the air into electrical signals. Our auditory nerve then carries these signals to the brain.”

Does Time Cause Gravity?

Sign Up on Patreon to get access to the Space Time Discord!
https://www.patreon.com/pbsspacetime​

We know that gravity must cause clocks to run slow on the basis of logical consistency. And we know that gravity DOES cause clocks to run slow based on many brilliant experiments. But I never explained WHY or HOW gravity causes the flow of time to slow down. And I’m not going to explain it now – because in a sense it’s not true. Gravity does NOT warp the flow of time. It’s the other way around – the warping of time causes gravity.

The boxing film that was banned around the world

In 1910, boxing heavyweight champion Jack Johnson defeated Jim Jeffries in the “Battle of the Century,” and the nation erupted.

Subscribe to Vox and turn on notifications (🔔) so you don’t miss any videos: http://goo.gl/0bsAjO​

On December 26, 1908, American boxer Jack Johnson became the first Black heavyweight champion of the world, after defeating defending champion Tommy Burns in a title fight in Sydney, Australia. Black fighters were typically denied the chance to win the heavyweight title, a de-facto line of segregation that was known as “the color line.” So when Burns accepted Johnson’s challenge and lost, the film that was distributed around the fight proved controversial.

The white boxing world set out to find a white heavyweight to beat Johnson and take back the title. That white fighter ended up being James Jeffries, a former heavyweight champion who had retired undefeated.

Their fight, hyped as the “Battle of the Century,” took place in Reno, Nevada, on July 4, 1910, in front of 20,000 mostly-white spectators and nine motion picture cameras. Throughout the nation, many thousands more listened to live telegram bulletins of each round. Johnson beat Jeffries easily, and, as a result, racist mob violence broke out across the country, and Black Americans celebrating Johnson’s win were attacked, and some were killed.

The film of the fight became notorious worldwide and was the most talked-about motion picture of its time. Johnson lost the heavyweight title in 1915 after successfully defending it eight times, but remained an inspiration for many fighters to come.

NASA has been prepping its new SLS rocket, and working with partners to build a new crew capsule known as Orion. In addition to the capsule, SLS can also carry astronauts and cargo to the Moon in a single mission. But the rocket wasn’t just designed to get humans back to the Moon.

In fact it’s the first deep space rocket developed for crewed missions by NASA since the famous Saturn V rocket, used for the Apollo Program. NASA defines the design of SLS as flexible and evolvable, which will allow for longer scientific robotics missions deeper into space.

This is possible because of the multiple configurations of SLS that can achieve not only various payload capacities, but also maximum thrust. Making it adaptable for crewed and cargo missions to the Moon as well as other planets.

How to create healthy green growth | RSA Events

As interest in green business models increases all over the world, how can we make sure we’re eliminating destructive practices and not merely greenwashing them? What can we do to achieve growth that is regenerative rather than wasteful, and which instils equity rather than exacerbating inequalities?

Per Espen Stoknes, Director of the Center for Sustainability and Energy at the Norwegian Business School in Oslo, guides us through the mindset and mechanisms that we need to move towards a sustainable model of growth that will benefit not only buyers and sellers but society and planet.

We already have the tools at our disposal, he argues, but success will depend on scaling innovation, and transforming both government practices and individual behaviours.

If you’re lucky enough to witness a panda applying a ripe layer of horse poop body paint to itself, you might assume it is a similar behavior to a dog frolicking in the stink of a dead animal. But in actuality, these pandas are reducing the bitter sting of the cold.

Not Your Average Drug User: The Hidden Downfalls of the Opioid Epidemic | David Wosnick | TEDxUofT

Shortly before starting his graduate studies at the University of Toronto, David Wosnick began experiencing difficulties with his health and soon found himself in severe around-the-clock pain. Years later, he learned he was battling a rare disease known as Ehler’s-Danlos Syndrome. Despite feeling the world on his shoulders, Wosnick continued to pursue neuroscience research in hopes of gaining an understanding of the world he was so deeply immersed in—chronic pain. With his back against the wall, Wosnick found solace in opioid therapy and eventually was able to move forward with the completion of his Master of Science degree at the University of Toronto. Following recent crackdowns on prescriptions of opioid pain medications due to the opioid crisis, Wosnick has found himself amongst thousands of other chronic pain patients who have been left empty-handed in managing chronic pain. While the stigma surrounding opioids continues to inflate, Wosnick has made it his mission to educate others about what you think you know about prescription opioid medication. In breaking the mold, Wosnick sets out to show that like many others to himself, he is not your average drug user David Wosnick is amongst thousands of chronic pain patients who have been left empty-handed in managing chronic pain.
