TEDxSF - A Curation Of People And Ideas... Posted by Tom Foremski - June 5, 2011 I've been to several TEDxSF events but the most recent one felt like a breakthrough event because of the mix of people and talks, plus the new venue. The event was sold out with about 650 tickets for the Yerba Buena location, a larger theater than the Academy of Sciences, where it used to be held. The mix of people was eclectic as always. There were at least two or three talks where I wished for the return of the old Vaudeville stage hook, or maybe a remote controlled trapdoor.

Richard Feynman videos Videos This page has been recently updated. The Fantastic Mr Feynman - BBC documentary, May 2013 Feynman's 1984 lecture on Tiny Machines (79 minutes) Richard Phillips Feynman - The Last Journey Of A Genius (full version, 54 minutes) TEDxSF (Build 20110413222027) Global health does not only encompass the maternal deaths in Zambia or underweight infants in Guatemala, it's about you and me--it's about every single human being on the planet. It's about us being able to envision 7 Billion Well. From the bottom to the top, we can make a difference in the lives of every person. We often hear about global health as a distant topic, but nothing can be further from the truth. This is because WE can make a real impact in each others' lives regardless of distance now more than ever before in our history. Imagine a world in which each human being not only saw health as their responsibility but had rightful access to better sanitation and water, adequate nutrition, and healthcare.

The Lost Generation: A Decade of Teen Movies The best teen movies reflect modern youth culture and alter it—they transform the vernacular, fashion, and the trajectory of the genre itself. They are original and smart (even mid-dick joke). Some are raunchy comedies, some are stark dramas, some defy classification, but all are unflinchingly honest (even mid-dick joke).

Ted – the ultimate forum for blue-sky thinking So, what is TED? And, more important, why should I care? For 22 years, Ted was a conference, an exclusive ideas forum where the great and the good came to hear Al Gore talk about climate change and Bill Gates about computing, right up until four years ago, when TED Talks was launched online and promptly became an internet sensation. It's a bit like YouTube, but instead of featuring cats falling into lavatories, it has short, cutting-edge talks by the world's leading neuroscientists, behavioural economists, video artists, philosophers, particle physicists, rocket scientists, endurance athletes, Aids researchers… you name it, it's been at TED. What TED does is seek out the most interesting, unusual and potentially groundbreaking ideas on Earth and then provide a platform to share them with the world. At the heart of it all are the conferences.
