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 never ending rise of Africa | Muyambi Muyambi | TEDxBucknellUniversity
 
18:48
Despite what the growing GDP and pictures of skyscrapers show you, the rise of Africa is barely a work in progress. Excessive charitable donations and outside business investment are not enough to bring Africa out of poverty. Muyambi explores the power of social entrepreneurship as a potential solution to poverty in Africa. Muyambi Muyambi was born in Rukungiri, Uganda but spent most of his childhood traveling the country. Throughout his travels, he experienced how different people lived, but realized the potential in one common tool, the bicycle. Muyambi found that the bicycle provided access to recourses such as clean water, healthcare, and schools. In 2008, while attending Bucknell, Muyambi founded Bicycles Against Poverty, an organization that uses microfinance as a way to distribute bicycles across Uganda. This organization has not only been extremely successful in distributing bikes, but also offers workshops about financial management. Muyambi and his co-founder were recognized by National Geographic as one of their travelers of the year in 2013.

How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky
 
14:13
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

TEDxAmsterdam - TEDxChange - Ndubuisi Ekekwe - Africa in the technology race
 
04:05
Ndubuisi Ekekwe founded African Institution of Technology (AFRIT) when he noticed that Africa was lagging behind in the technology race. As a doctoral engineering student in the Johns Hopkins University, USA, he came to the realization that without helping Africa to develop a technology diffusion roadmap, the continent could face severe crises in the future: if nanotechnology could mature and displace commodities like cotton and rubber as raw materials, pushing farming unemployment high, the security of most African nations could be in jeopardy. He got into action and has authored major documents for the African Union and African governments.

Short Tales of Fakery | Pablo Garcia | TEDxVienna
 
16:13
What do we mean when we call something fake? Lies? Hoax? Misinformation, spin, satire, mistake, counterfeit? Not all fakes are created equal. #FAKENEWS has the world debating the nature of truth and facts. What does “fake” mean now? Is “fake” universally bad, or are there benevolent fakes? Pablo, an artist and professor working at the intersection of art and technology, will take you down the rabbit hole of contemporary fakery, its precedents, and a quick tour of the undisputed capital of fakes: Shenzhen, China. Pablo Garcia is Associate Professor in Contemporary Practices at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Born in 1975, Garcia was in college when the first internet browser launched. Composite training in traditional analog and then-nascent digital technologies inspired a research practice into the intersection and overlap of art and technology, obsolescence and the cutting edge, the real and the virtual. Garcia’s work ranges from scholarly contributions to art historical studies to contemporary artworks examining digital culture.

The internet's new palette - changing the art of cancer: Gary Thompson at TEDxWeldQuay 2013
 
11:39
Gary brings to CLOUD and the creation of a new Internet over twenty-five years of experience in business development and strategic leadership with emerging growth and leading global technology companies. His core passion and mission is "to unleash the power of people. to allow all to dream; to allow all to harness their dreams; and to collect the power of those dreams to transform lives and society." That personal mission is the foundation behind CLOUD -- the Consortium for the Local Ownership and Use of Data, Inc -- a US-based nonprofit. CLOUD was born from Gary's front line view of the battle with cancer. His own wife's breast cancer made him mad; Kethan's cancer changed him. Gary spoke of Kethan at his first TED talk at TEDxAustin in 2011. Kethan's recent passing after a 7-year battle with leukemia sparked this TEDx World Tour in his honor to tell the next chapter in the story of CLOUD and how together we can beat "The Emperor of All Maladies."

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.

Joe Stump: How to Improve CTO Public Speaking and Presentation Skills
 
04:14
In Chapter 13 of 17 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, Internet entrepreneur and SimpleGeo CTO Joe Stump shares how his public speaking and presentation skills are improving over time. Joe Stump is the co-founder and CTO at SimpleGeo, a San Francisco-based mobile location infrastructure services company. Previously Stump was Lead Architect at Digg. He programs in PHP, Python, Django and enjoys scaling websites. He earned a BBA in Computer Information Systems from Eastern Michigan University. Transcript: Erik Michielsen: How is you approach to public speaking changing as you learn and grow as a though leader? Joe Stump: I don’t get nervous anymore, obviously I’ve been speaking in front of a lot of people a lot, so that’s gotten a lot better. Erik Michielsen: When did that stop? Joe Stump: Um… That actually stopped a while ago. I did a lot of – I mean you were in B school and you know that everything is a group project and everything ends with a presentation. And every class that I had I had group presentations or single presentations, I had to take speech in college because of business school as well and ended up on IFC as the IFC president, so I had to give like a speech in front of the whole Greek organizations on campus. So, I think I got over a lot of that in college. The big thing that has changed as I’ve grown as a leader- well as I’ve attempted to grow as a leader in the tech space, is when I first started giving talks I felt that it was really important to put as much shit on a slide as humanly possible, right? And it was literally like twelve-point font, all code, monotone, you know it looked terrible. Everybody is like “Ehhh” Everybody in the back is like, “I don’t even know what he’s talking about.” And now if you look at my slides, they’re literally just like a funny picture background and one or two words, and that’s it. Everything that I talk about when I talk is off the cuff. I don’t actually plan what I’m going to say other than I have my slides as an outline. And the reason why I do that - a really good buddy of mine in New York, Eric Kastner, I use to when I was doing really heavy technical talks I would have him review my slides. He’s a friendly nerd of mine. And he was like, “Why are you putting all of this crap on slides?” And I was like, “Well, I like to have something for them to read and I want to give them as much information as humanly possible and…” And he was like, “Dude. You can bullshit about this stuff ad nauseum. You don’t need to worry about putting a bunch of crap on slides.” He’s like, “Get up there, be yourself and just talk as if you and I are having a conversation.” That’s probably the best speaking advice that I’ve ever gotten. And that’s – the biggest fundamental shift is I get up, I talk ad hoc, just from the cuff about what I know and what I’m passionate about and it either resonates with people or they think I’m an idiot, which is fine too. Erik Michielsen: Now, how has that changed as you’ve talked less about tech and more about ideas and innovation? Joe Stump: I actually just recently learned a lesson on this one. Now that I’ve gotten away from more technical talks and getting into more of the “what does it all mean and where are we all going” kind of talks is that I use a lot more statistics and a lot more kind of metrics to get my message across. Like one of the current things – there are a couple of things that I think are really interesting about mobile location kind of stuff. One is that there’s about 1.5, 1.8 billion people on Internet. There are 5.8 billion mobile subscribers. We have a four billion person gap that’s going to be closed – those four billion people will be on the Internet probably in the next year or two. So, if we thought the Internet is growing quickly before, we haven’t seen anything because those mobile subscribers are just waiting for the Internet to come on to the network. So, I use a lot of numbers to talk about that and to back that up. And recently a lesson that I learned from that was that I have sources for all that stuff but I don’t generally put them on slides, and I recently quoted a report from Africa that said that students in Uganda and Kenya spend fifty percent of their disposable income on mobile communications. And this woman who was from Kenya got up and was like, “That is absolutely false!” Like she went off to me with the microphone in front of the whole thing and I’m like, “Clearly I need to cite my sources.”

What does the Quran really say about a Muslim woman's hijab? | Samina Ali | TEDxUniversityofNevada
 
17:48
In recent times, the resurgence of the hijab along with various countries’ enforcement of it has led many to believe that Muslim women are required by their faith to wear the hijab. In this informative talk, novelist Samina Ali takes us on a journey back to Prophet Muhammad's time to reveal what the term “hijab” really means -- and it's not the Muslim woman's veil! So what does “hijab” actually mean, if not the veil, and how have fundamentalists conflated the term to deny women their rights? This surprising and unprecedented idea will not only challenge your assumptions about hijab but will change the way you see Muslim women. Samina Ali is an award-winning author, activist and cultural commentator. Her debut novel, Madras on Rainy Days, won France’s prestigious Prix Premier Roman Etranger Award and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award in Fiction. Ali’s work is driven by her belief in personal narrative as a force for achieving women’s individual and political freedom and in harnessing the power of media for social transformation. She is the curator of the groundbreaking, critically acclaimed virtual exhibition, Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art & Voices.
