Antonio Donato Nobre: The magic of the Amazon: A river that flows invisibly all around us

By: TED
Via YouTube | September 19, 2014

The Amazon River is like a heart, pumping water from the seas through it, and up into the atmosphere through 600 billion trees, which act like lungs. Clouds form, rain falls and the forest thrives. In a lyrical talk, Antonio Donato Nobre talks us through the interconnected systems of this region, and how they provide environmental services to the entire world. A parable for the extraordinary symphony that is nature.

How art allowed me to erase borders | Ana Teresa Fernández | TEDxPennsylvaniaAvenue

By: TEDx Talks
Via YouTube | August 25, 2017

As an artist, Ana Teresa Fernandez uses her imagination as her weapon to challenge today’s political rhetoric by erasing borders with sky blue paint and wearing ice stilettos in the streets of Oakland. She re-tells myths and folklore that cements us to limited ways of thinking, and paints alternate truths to tear down psychological and physical barriers.
TBT Feb 9th 2017, at Newseum in Capitol Hill, at one of the most difficult professional moments … Delia Cohen, the TEDX consultant & I clocked in over 18 hrs of skype meetings, and close to 30 written drafts for my talk in just one month. We finished the last draft 48 hrs before I got on a plane to Washington DC, and which I had to memorize word for word. She had asked the coordinator to get me an extension & allow my talk to be 16 min instead of 12. “Every word matters” Delia kept saying, “and all these stories need to be told!” I was the only artist & youngest person on TEDX Pennsylvania Ave. amidst politicians & greats like Philippe Cousteau & Sonia Nazario. Nervous is not even close to being the right word. The pressure of that platform is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. All speakers sat like ghosts in the green room, trying to find a closet or corner to collect ourselves before going out to speak. I remember Philippe hid himself between two big recycling bins, and put his head between his knees. Someone did jumping jacks. Those words I memorized my bones already knew so well. Undressing your skin to reveal what’s inside is the hardest part. What people don’t know is that after the talk & reception I got to my hotel room and sat on the floor crying, beating myself up over and over, thinking I could have done better, fought harder, been a better voice for artists, but also scared & so exposed to have opened up so much. Feeling a huge vulnerability- hang over. The political change was palpable in Capitol Hill. And I was terrified of what was to come with this presidency, to us artists, to migrants to so many people … So, I called my mom, and from across the US she helped me to collect myself again. Saying “Gordita está bien… día a día” it’s ok, one day at a time. Today you did the best you could… “

Why you should define your fears instead of your goals | Tim Ferriss

By: TED
Via Youtube | July 14, 2017

The hard choices — what we most fear doing, asking, saying — are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls “fear-setting.” Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.

The paradox of value – Akshita Agarwal

By: TED-Ed
Via YouTube | August 29, 2016

Imagine that you are in a contest and you can choose between two prizes: a diamond or a bottle of water. It’s an easy choice: diamonds are more valuable. But if you are given the same option when you are dehydrated in the desert, after wandering for days, would you choose differently? Why? Are not diamonds still more valuable? Akshita Agarwal explains the paradox of value.

El científico más innovador del que jamás oíste hablar

Autor: TED-Ed
Vía YouTube | Octubre 1, 2013

El geólogo danés del siglo XVII, Nicolás Sténon, se ganó la vida a temprana edad, estudiando cadáveres y estableciendo conexiones anatómicas entre las especies.

Sténon hizo aportes descomunales en el campo de la geología, influyendo en Charles Lyell, James Hutton y Charles Darwin. Addison Anderson relata el legado poco conocido de Sténon y alaba su insistencia en el empirismo sobre la teoría ciega.

How Laughing at Yourself Can Change the World

By: TEDx Talks
Via YouTube | December 2, 2015

President Obama’s appearance on “Between Two Ferns” made tens of millions of people laugh (and saved lives in the process). In a culture flooded with too much partisan information, comedy is the last great refuge of truth and access.
Brad Jenkins is the Managing Director and Executive Producer of Funny Or Die DC. For the last four years, Jenkins served as President Obama’s liaison and director of engagement to the creative and advocacy communities, bringing together creative executives, advocacy leaders, and some of the world’s biggest stars to advance the President’s agenda — including his Emmy-award winning “Between Two Ferns”
