Everything is a Remix

Everything is a Remix
For the first time, the whole series as a single video in HD. In the five years since the series launched, Everything is a Remix has been viewed over two million times and produced a popular TED Talk. Amazingly, Remix continues to change the way people think about creativity, originality, and copyright. To celebrate the five year anniversary, I've polished up the original four parts and merged them into a single video. For the first time now, the whole series is available as a single video with proper transitions all the way through, unified styling, and remixed and remastered audio. Part One has been entirely rebuilt in HD. Join my email list to get occasional notifications about new work

Raised By Wolves: Meet Brummie actress Helen Monks who stars in the new Chann... Birmingham actress Helen Monks takes the lead in Caitlin Moran’s new sitcom Raised By Wolves. And to say she was determined to get the role is an understatement. She sought out Caitlin to ask for a part, then turned up at the audition with her own fat suit! Helen, from Kings Heath, is 22 but playing a 15-year-old version of Caitlin, who admits she was 15 stone at the time. That means Helen has had to bulk up in the role but was already prepared at the audition.

What teens really want to know about sex On the first day of my Sexuality and Society class, I don’t pass around anatomy drawings. I don’t hand out pamphlets about safer sex, although those are stacked on a table near the door. Instead, the first thing I do is establish ground rules. People should speak for themselves, laughter is OK, we won’t ask “personal history” questions, and we’ll work to create a community of peers who care about and respect one another. Only then can we get to work.

BC Education – Onward and Upward? I kinda think so… Recently I had the opportunity to hear Rod Allen and Maureen Dockendorf talk about the future of education in BC. They came to our district to share some of the amazing work that is going on around the province, and to share the Ministry’s vision of education. I took copious notes during their presentation…here is what I came away with. Sleeping less than six hours a night skews activity of hundreds of genes Getting too little sleep for several nights in a row disrupts hundreds of genes that are essential for good health, including those linked to stress and fighting disease. Tests on people who slept less than six hours a night for a week revealed substantial changes in the activity of genes that govern the immune system, metabolism, sleep and wake cycles, and the body's response to stress, suggesting that poor sleep could have a broad impact on long-term wellbeing. The changes, which affected more than 700 genes, may shed light on the biological mechanisms that raise the risk of a host of ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stress and depression, in people who get too little sleep. "The surprise for us was that a relatively modest difference in sleep duration leads to these kinds of changes," said Professor Derk-Jan Dijk, director of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre at Surrey University, who led the study.
