Captain Paul Watson Stars In TEDxSF Posted by Tom Foremski - April 28, 2010 TEDxSF, one of the local TED conference communities, held an event Tuesday evening at the California Academy of Sciences, in the planetarium auditorium. About 350 people watched live presentations and many more were in a lounge watching the live stream of the event on monitors. The theme was courage and resilience. First up was Dr John Gray, the relationship expert known for his best seller "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus." He said that women in the workplace experience twice as much stress as men and they need the hormone oxytocin to deal with the stress, and that comes from doing nurturing tasks. Men perform work tasks that generate testosterone, which is used to deal with their stress. Because women are suffering from stress at much higher levels in the workplace, and they are unable to deal with the stress well, they will start dying earlier than men, he predicted. Ultimate Fighter Champion Nate Quarry was up next. Loop! Please see:

About this site - Notes from a Linguistic Mystic This site exists both as a place for me to post the things that intrigue me and make me think, but also as a place for you to find and learn about things that might intrigue you. I’ll do my best to write in such a way that you don’t need a background in Linguistics to understand my posts, and always feel free to comment if you don’t understand something. I’ll post a clarification as soon as I can. Although I’m a Linguist by trade and by passion, some what I’m discussing on this site might fall outside of mainstream linguistics.

L'abeille en héraldique L'abeille est un animal héraldique par excellence car sa symbolique est particulièrement riche. Traditionnellement, elle représente l'énergie vitale, c'est-à-dire l'âme. Quand elle est en nombre autour d'un rucher, elle évoque la cohésion sociale et l'industrie. Mais s'agissant de blasons plus récents, cette représentation est généralement liée à une activité simplement apicole Aristée, fils du dieu Apollon, possédait un rucher.

Sea Shepherd Sir Ken Robinson Opening Keynote #ASTD2013 @sirkenrobinson These are my live blogged notes from the opening session at the ASTD International Conference & Expo (ICE) -- happening this week in Dallas, TX. 10,000 or so training and development people here to extend their practice. We all have deep talents, but it’s often the case that we don’t discover them. Human talent are like the world’s natural resources – they are often buried beneath the surface. And if you don’t go looking for them you’ll never find them. You need circumstances for talent to demonstrate themselves… Whether you actually discover your talents is another matter. Why don’t we discover what we’re good at? What really makes you a success is PASSION. When it’s just a job, you’re disengaged. People who love what they do…”this isn’t what I do, it’s who I am.” Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative (Sir Ken book, published ten years ago.) When a really original idea turns up, it excites everyone’s imagination. Today we have a crisis in human resources.

TEDxSF - Little TED Just Like The Big TED Posted by Tom Foremski - November 18, 2009 I popped into the TEDxSF conference yesterday at the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park and really enjoyed the presentations. I've never been to the big TED conference but I've seen many videos and this was just like it. Conference is probably not the right word to describe TEDxSF it is more like attending a series of theatrical performances. And each TED presentation seems to exist within a TED template: - Pretty much everyone has a slide-show presentation to aid their 20 minute performance. - There is always an emotional moment or hook. - A TED presentation will always seek to inspire - It will encourage the audience to think beyond their boundaries. -It will make copious use of in vogue terms such as: powerful, community, culture, creativity, innovation, engage, passion, transcend, think big, connect, connections, educate, universe... - Each presentation has to have a funny glitch with the slides - High ideals and big ideas are essential

Early life[edit] Nate Quarry grew up as a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses, which he later characterized as a cult that controls its members 24 hours a day. Quarry grew up in a sheltered lifestyle and did not even participate in organized sports until age 24, when he first became exposed to mixed martial arts. After a period of self-discovery, Quarry rejected his Jehovah's Witness upbringing, which caused him to become alienated from his family and former friends. He began to associate with others outside of the church and along the way began to train in mixed martial arts fighting.[1] Eventually, Quarry made his way to Team Quest, out of Gresham, Oregon, where he continued to train until mid-2007.[2] Personal life[edit]
