Technological light from dark Africa | Shadreck Chirikure | TEDxTableMountain
 
13:36
Prof Chirikure takes us on a light-hearted yet poignant tour of pre-colonial African technology, with particular focus on indigenous mining and metalworking. He points to the glaring gaps in our recorded and widely-recognized African history and through his work as an archaeologist is actively seeking to shed light on this previously dark subject. Shadreck Chirikure is Associate Professor of Archaeology and Director of the Archaeological Materials Laboratory at the University of Cape Town. His research combines techniques from hard sciences with those from humanities to explore pre-colonial African technologies such as metal and pottery production. Chirikure has carried out excavations at various sites including Great Zimbabwe and Khami World Heritage sites. His work is exposing the technologies that sustained these internationally well-known sites. Chirikure’s two books Indigenous mining and metallurgy in Africa (Cambridge University Press) and Metal in Society (Springer 2015) have been well received. Chirikure’s current research explores the survival of precolonial technologies into the present within the discourse of indigenous knowledge systems.

P.J. Tobia is a Foreign Affairs Producer at PBS NewsHour, covering the Middle East, Africa the intelligence and diplomatic community. He is also the host and producer of NewsHour’s Shortwave podcast, on the intersection of foreign affairs and American life.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory

Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

Expert Interview with Christo de Klerk, Mines Rescue Services South Africa
 
07:46
Christo de Klerk, General Manager of Mines Rescue Services in South Africa, reports on the significance of deep mining on mines rescue during the IMRB Conference (October 2013, Canada). According to de Klerk, South Africa has the deepest mine worldwide with around at 4 kilometers depth. Currently, the mine operators prepare themselves to mine at 5 km depth. That brings on new challenges for miners and mines rescue teams - the established recue concepts have their limits and higher temperatures and longer distances need to be considered. In South Africa, mines very often hire unskilled people to work underground so the safety devices they carry need to be easy to don and to operate. According to their escape strategy, it is important that a refuge chamber is available where they can wait for help in the case of emergency. For generations, Christo de Klerk and his family have been passionate about mines rescue: "The passion to save lives but also the property of the mines." The Dräger expert interview series also includes talks with Ian Cooper, Manager Health & Safety at Hudbay Minerals in Canada; Radoslaw Stach, Mining Area Manager at KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. in Poland and Wolfgang Roehl, Manager Statutory Accident Insurance at Central Mines Rescue Organization in Germany.

The Anunnaki Creation Story: The Biggest Secret in Human History - Nibiru is Coming
 
16:44
445 000 years ago, “creator gods” – as they call it – came to Earth. They were called the Anunnaki, which means “Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came”. These beings inhabited a distant orbiting planet called Nibiru, which only entered our solar system every 3,600 years. They describe Nibiru as many times the diameter of Earth, and abundant with iron oxide, making its rivers and lakes appear red. A side note about Nibiru: according to the Sumerian tablets, Nibiru’s atmosphere began to deteriorate and became a hostile place for life, and in order to restore it, the Annunaki needed one important element for their atmosphere: gold.

Your assumptions about smallholders are likely wrong | Tola Okunlola | TEDxJohannesburgSalon
 
13:34
Tola puts forward the idea that in our efforts to simplify, the language we use and assumptions we make when we frame our ideas tend to hide complexity and prevent us from seeing a truer picture of reality. Take smallholders, for example. The repetitive framing of this category of farmers as needing assistance from outside sources so they can fit neatly into our pre-conceived notions of what is good and bad, reinforces a pervasive idea of smallholders being incapable of supporting themselves. According to the research that Tola and her colleagues carried out, the evidence points to a different reality. Smallholders are in fact a group of highly active agents sourcing and linking to markets themselves with hardly any support, and often with great success. A more useful question we should be asking is about the kind of food system we want. Is it one dominated by conventional “commercial” structures, or one where there is a tapestry of farmers and markets of different shapes and sizes which privilege the many, not just the few? Find Tola on Twitter: @AdetolaOkunlola Tola is a social researcher and development consultant in the areas of agriculture and agribusiness, public–private partnerships and ethical supply chain management. She is also a director at AfrikaBurn NPC, a 'participant-created movement, an experiment in inclusive community building, decommodification, creativity, self-reliance and radical self-expression.'

TEDxChapelHill - TEDxChange - Pape Gaye - Global Health, MDGs & Dignity
 
05:11
TEDxChapelHill, one of 82 independently organized events worldwide that included live broadcasts of TEDxChange in New York. TEDxChange was co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and TED to mark the 10th anniversary of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). IntraHealth International's President and CEO Pape Gaye kicked off the local event focusing on global health and the MDGs and asked the audience to recognize how far we've come and how far we have left to go in guaranteeing all global citizens their rights to education, health, and dignity. The live broadcast was themed around "The Future We'll Make" and included four speakers and two live performances by Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, musicians from Sierra Leone. •Professor Hans Rosling, co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation, debunked the myth that little progress has been made toward the MDGs—especially in Africa—by using his infamous bubble graphs and enthusiasm for numbers to illustrate the notable successes in Ghana and Kenya in lowering child mortality. •Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the event's convener, asked the global health community to look to the marketing techniques of top corporations such as the Coca-Cola Company, which has tapped into local talent and resources to reach the most far-flung, remote locations with its product and brand. She also pointed to the company's use of real-time data to guide its decisions and gauge its success. •Mechai Viravaidya, a long-time champion of family planning in Thailand who is known as "Mr. Condom," described his quest to use fun, innovative marketing campaigns—including a "Captain Condom" superhero that visited schools and held condom blowing competitions among teachers and students—to encourage Thais to use condoms and family planning. These campaigns have shown tremendous success, including a significant decline in family size and infant and maternal mortality and a slowing of the Thai HIV epidemic. •Graca Machel, the current president of the Foundation for Community Development in Mozambique and a long-time social and political activist, also demanded that people cease viewing Africa as a "continent of failure." In an impassioned address, Machel urged the audience to look at the achievements in Africa, notably Malawi's successful response to the national crop failure of 2005 after learning from the crop failure and subsequent famine of 2002. Machel also focused on the success of post-genocide Rwanda in rebuilding and investing in gender equity and women's education. She pointed out that Rwanda holds the notable distinction of having the highest representation of women in parliament of any country in the world. Although the speakers did not coordinate their remarks ahead of time, all four focused on the essential role of girls and women in achieving our future success and growth as a global community, and stressed the importance of educating girls and guaranteeing their access to health care, including family planning. Gates wrapped up the event by saying, "We've made more progress in the last 10 years than any other period in history combined." As part of TEDx, people were encouraged to share their vision of the future we make through pictures.

Bill Gates Admits Vaccines Are Used for Human Depopulation
 
03:44
Next are two short excerpts from a recently filmed TED presentation (Feb 2010) by none other than Bill "Microsoft" Gates. At the heart of Gates' address lies the central Global Warming dogma, which dictates that Co2 emitted by human beings are the primary culprit for the unwanted heating of the globe. Since this artificial alleged human-induced heating effect allegedly stands to devastate the planet if left unabated, Global Warming dogma proponents therefore argue that human Co2 emissions must be drastically reduced. As Gates casually addresses the issue, he goes on to state that one way to accomplish this goal is to reduce the global human population. ERRATUM: To be completely fair and accurate, I should have stated that Gates seeks to reduce the anticipated growth of the human population rather than that he seeks to reduce the current population. I admit that the latter slogan, that is contained in the video, is a bit misleading and I do not want to insinuate that Gates seeks to kill off currently living people. He rather seeks to lower the projected population growth. He postulates the central equation, giving an estimation of the humanly emitted C02 load per year, to be: Co2 = P times S times E times C Where P stands for the population number, S the average number of services per person, E the average amount of energy units per service, and C the average Co2 emitted load per unit of service, per year; Co2 stands for the projected total humanly emitted carbon-dioxide load by the entire population per year. In the first clip you will hear him state in plain language that he considers VACCINES to be desirable to bring down the future population number P and so reduce Co2. You will also casually hear him promoting HEALTH CARE and REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH SERVICES, to accomplish that same C02 reducing goal. Here are Bill Gates' verbatim words [square parentheses additions for clarification purposes are mine though]: "The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that [number of 9 billion] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent. But there we see an increase of about 1.3 [billion]." Let's focus on the vaccines. Gates is stating that he considers vaccines to be useful in contributing to bring the projected population growth of 2.2 billion down to 1.3 billion, roughly one billion. What kind of properties can thus reasonably be deduced that vaccines are to have according to Gates? Well, basically all the properties that impede people to either have children, or successfully rear them. In other words, Gates implicitly advocates the definition of his favorite kind of vaccine to be one that fosters infertility, sterility and (early onset) senility (autism) alike. Note that Gates does not mention a word on the much touted purported intention of vaccines: to offer protection against relevant diseases and therefore as such, precisely prolong life. Given the abundance of toxins in vaccines (see my blog for some links of simply Google "toxin ingredient vaccine"), the position that vaccines contribute to decrease mortality rates, is kind of hard to maintain. So Gates proves to be quite the humanitarian there huh? In the second excerpt you hear Gates explain what he considers to be the single most important thing that he would choose to see become a reality in the future time span of 50 years. He again confirms his "love" for the vaccine.

I don’t measure maturity by age, but by how many people you ever met in your life. So I am on a constant mission of finding humans. And I am repeatedly astounded by the incredible people I get to interact with on a daily basis. Today you are introduced to: Jared Kleinert: Jared and I met at SXSW dressed as big yellow fruit with the intention of breaking the world record of most people dressed as bananas. His knowledgeability about everything and general cheekiness immediately stuck out to me. So we decided to keep in touch. Jared is a world-class connector of people and ideas. He’s worked with NYT Bestselling authors, Olympians, founders of billion dollar brands, Rhodes Scholars, and more. He’s the bestselling Author of 2 Billion Under 20. Oh yea and he’s TWENTY. His Ted Talk blew my tits off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krC4kTD29K4 Nick Onken: His photography are some of the most beautiful images I’ve seen. When you go on his website, you just want to get lost in every single album and not stop until it’s way past your bedtime. His portfolio has anyone from Justin Bieber to Tony Robbins to the most beautifully touching images from school kids Africa you can imagine. He is a breathing and walking piece of art himself. And you can see the genuine kindness and dedication within everything he devotes his time to. Find his art and podcast here: http://www.nickonken.com Dante Crisafulli: He will walk through the streets of New York with you, casually pointing out giant high street store adverts that he shot. After studying Finance for four year, working for a major firm on Wall Street, he said to himself: hell no, this is not what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to be a filmmaker. So he went back to Uni to study film. He now works as a film badass at Vaynermedia and have you cracking up over your tea with his amazing sense of humour. You American boy! Tracy Baum-Finkel: Tracy and I met in the bathroom at Awesomeness Fest in Costa Rica. Leyla and I walked in there drenched in sweat trying to fix something on our bras I think. Tracey entered the room like the Queen of Badass herself. After our brief exchange I said: “I like you. I’m going to remember you.” After I told her my name she said to me: “I usually forget everyones name, let’s see if I remember yours.” And she did :) 8 months later, here I am showing at her doorstep in New York. Even better, her brand logo is: “Breathe”. Ahh, sweet serendipity. The blog we were reading: http://thebreathepage.com/laid-out-bare-sometimes-still/

No amount of hand-wringing is going to stop it", says drone expert, Peter Singer. Whether it's a floating TV station streaming live to the web, the prying lens of the paparazzi, the police chasing a criminal or a government agency spying, small domestic drones are experiencing an exponential growth. At the world's largest drone convention in Las Vegas a salesman tells the crowd, "this can be used in law enforcement, disaster relief and industrial applications. It's also very good at dusting floors. Every home owner should have one". And as the technology advances at a frightening speed, anyone with a few hundred dollars can buy one over the counter. These hobby drones can fly for miles and provide sharp video feedback to the pilot. "I wouldn't cheat on your wife!", laughs columnist Charles Krauthammer. But jokes aside, there are real fears over the "political, legal and ethical issues that play out with this", argues Singer. In 3 years time an order from the US congress will see tens of thousands of drones legally occupy an already crowded sky, raising numerous questions about basic safety, terrorism and civil liberty. As companies rush to cash in on this new billion dollar industry, experts warn, "we're not ready for this".
