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

"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. 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.

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.

Who needs instruments anyway? | Neopolitan Twist | TEDxUQ 2014

We quickly we get used to a style of music be it rock in the '60s, or Dubstep in more recent years. This is a performance of a cappella (only voices) singing. Watch and listen as Neopolitan Twist show that hearing six voices with no accompaniment doesn't mean you're in for an archaic classical concert piece -- you might be just as likely to hear an '80s rock anthem! Neopolitan Twist isn't your average a cappella group. Formed in 2010 through a passion for mixing purely vocal music with terrible eighties rock anthems, they're a bunch of young musos who sing occasionally, but otherwise debate ethics and what the tasteful limits of fortissimo actually are.​ Comprising this six-part assortment are: the delightfully talented singer and arranger, Andrew Messenger; the excellent O'Loghlin siblings, Clara and Eamonn; the ever-enthusiastic Lyndal Bubke; the delightful ​Emi Scott; and last but not least their incredibly versatile newcomer Joel Gilmore.  Brought to you by: University of Queensland (UQ) UQx UQ Advantage Office MezurX UQ's Faculty of Science UQ's School of Psychology UQ Union Pitcher Partners thecopyshopuq MailChimp TEDxUQ Team: Advisors: Professor Phillip Long & Dr. Jessica Gallagher Curator: Lawrence Kurniawan Wong Co-curator: Sheila Horas Speaker Outreach Coordinator: Hannah Thomas Event & Logistics Coordinator: Sabrina Wong Sponsorship & Financial Coordinator: Marya Atmeh Creativity & Marketing Coordinator: Ervin Liu Multimedia & Photography Coordinator: Lennon Cheng Sponsorship & Financial: Tom Robinson Multimedia & Photography: Anindra Iswara Event & Logistics: Steven Chan Event & Logistics: Joanne Cheong Creativity & Marketing: Yuxi Wang Master of Ceremony: Rebecca Dew Speaker Outreach: Jeremy Farley In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

TEDxChemungRiver - Gabriel Ankamafio-Adjei - Patents, Market Share, and Niches
 
14:59
I was born and raised in the Atlantic coastal town of Labadi in the capital city of Ghana. By the age of 15, I was farming organic vegetables on our family home back yard, and selling the produce to restaurants along the coast. I managed the farm all through my high school. I wanted to expand into poultry and I partnered with a childhood friend of mine to enter into this new venture. We were raising about 500 chickens a year and selling to smaller and bigger restaurants alike within the center cities of Accra, Ghana. We had to close shop during an outbreak of poultry disease which wiped out all our hard work and investment. Being enrolled in a boarding school didn't help us in starting over either. At 19, I left Ghana to study in Denmark and also play semi-professional soccer. I moved to the U.S. after a three year stint in Europe. I stayed in Bronx, NY for almost a year, saving for college which I did end up completing in Upstate NY. While in college I accumulated patents through my consumer products ideas, which helped me make my move into starting a company. Things did not necessarily go as planned, primarily due to oversight on my part concerning several hurdles, stemming from a lack of maturity as an entrepreneur. I foraged on through another venture, FANSHOES, where I currently am the CEO. FANSHOES was an idea, I conceived in late 2008, after looking at the market availability for branded footwear in the collegiate and pro-sports market. Although, FANSHOES is not the first and would not be the last to tap into this niche market, the possibility of grabbing significant market share was worth pursuing. Since the launch of sales the products in 2009, we have worked with some of the largest national collegiate stores and big-box retail stores in the country, and are considering the potential of moving aboard through international sporting games.
