11/10 Event: 7 Billion Well: Re-Imagining Global Health

11/10 Event: 7 Billion Well: Re-Imagining Global Health | TEDxSF | Scoop.it

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. What if you knew you could help make this happen?

 

Join luminaries in academia, technology, medicine, entertainment, business, and beyond in envisioning a world of 7 Billion Well. Hear inspiring stories of innovation, revolution, and change in global health, from saving children's' lives in the most remote areas to shifting your mindset and lifestyle.

Conscious Curation « SweetMedia

Conscious Curation « SweetMedia | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
TEDxSF curator, Christine McCaull spoke last night at the SF Curator's Salon inspiring lively discussion around the definition and role of the curator. This article is an expansion on the bullet points in her remarks. There is a prior post- What is Curation?- that attempts to professionalize and put some limits around the use of the word, which may be needed- lest I seriously think that I’m curating my garage next time I clean it out...

Does all curation have a viewpoint? “The Curator Bias”
Yes, all curation has opinion and intention- this can be conscious or unconscious. When a professional curator sets about to create an event, an exhibit or a collection, they are also bringing about a state change or highlighting a new way of seeing something for the viewer...

TED in BED: A take home

TED in BED: A take home | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
TEDxSF speaker Mel Robbins –the bold, blonde, ambitious woman that stormed our stage on June 4th, spoke as mother, lawyer, syndicated radio talk-show host, and relationship coach about what it takes to live our best lives and be who we’re supposed to be. What is it exactly that we want, she challenged, and what exactly are we doing, or failing to do, to get there?

For starts, she claims with verve and unapologetic enthusiasm that you’re not okay if you’re fine. It’s just simply not fine to describe your life, this very auspicious state of existence, as fine. And here’s why:

Every single one of us falls into a category of 1: 400,000,000,000. That’s one in four-hundred-trillion. According to Mel, this is the probability of our being born. It’s a category and a qualification. “You’re not fine. You’re fantastic. You have life-changing ideas for a reason.” Somehow, you beat the odds. That makes our livelihoods extremely and undeniably lucky.

Are You a Miracle? On the Probability of Your Being Born

Are You a Miracle? On the Probability of Your Being Born | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
A miracle is an event so unlikely as to be almost impossible. By that definition, I've just proven that you are a miracle...

In a recent talk at TEDx San Francisco, Mel Robbins, a riotously funny self-help author, mentioned that scientists estimate the probability of your being born at about one in 400 trillion.

TED event brings hundreds to the Craneway Pavillion - San Francisco Chronicle (blog)

TED event brings hundreds to the Craneway Pavillion - San Francisco Chronicle (blog) | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
Big ideas about education and emotion flowed through the Craneway Pavillion at the TEDxGoldenGateED conference over the weekend. The ideas found a receptive audience in the roughly 700 in attendance at the Saturday conference that attracted teachers, parents, therapists and others from throughout the Bay Area. The day included a packed schedule of speakers, performers and workshops that revolved around the central theme of compassion.

In the literature for the event, the organizers called compassion "humanity's stickiest emotion." Defined as a devotion to enhancing the welfare of others, speakers at the conference had a variety of takes on the subject, presenting scientific and psychological research on the biological and environmental underpinnings of compassion as well as examples of compassion in action in schools and communities.

#Alive – My first TED event

#Alive – My first TED event | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
I am glad that I ended up being the volunteer for my first TED event as opposed to paying 100...But not only the “health” concept, what does it mean to live as a human, and more importantly, what does it mean to maximize this process and how can we do that? When it comes to “how”, especially if you’ve lived in the bay area long enough, technology is something you couldn’t miss. To some extent, the question becomes how can technology help people maximize their living (in a healthy way). TEDxSF organizers definitely want to inspire the audience by showing how technology turns impossible into possible. Eythor Bender, a professor from Berkeley presented how mechanic equipment like eLEGS can help disabled people like  stand up again...

TEDxSF - A Curation Of People And Ideas... - SVW

TEDxSF - A Curation Of People And Ideas... - SVW | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
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 best part of the event was when it was over and there was a chance to meet and talk with the audience and performers. In past TEDxSF events few people stay around afterwards. This time it seemed as if everyone stayed for hours. Strangers formed spontaneous discussion groups, salons were formed on the-fly... All great stuff.

TEDxSF is a great example of a type of curation that is uncommon: curating people. Choosing the people that present at the event, and also choosing the people that are allowed into the event (everyone has to apply).
It's a form of curation that is difficult but rewarding when done right and the TEDxSF team seem to be really hitting their stride.

Andres Torres, the ‘Gigante’ | by Kim Nunley

Andres Torres, the ‘Gigante’ | by Kim Nunley | TEDxSF | Scoop.it
Every March my wife and I go to Scottsdale to watch the San Francisco Giants participate in Spring Training.

Two years ago we were there and one new player in particular caught our eye. There was an intensity to him, even when he completing the most minor of tasks. He’d be stretching and bouncing, acting as if he were about to march into the batter’s box as the last hitter in game seven of the World Series, when really he was simply waiting for his turn to step in for batting practice.

That player was Andres Torres.

Orgasmic Meditation · Neverness

This week Nicole Daedone gave a talk at TEDx San Francisco on orgasmic meditation (embedded below). Orgasmic Meditation existed on the fringes of San Francisco society until 2009, when an article in the New York Times shone the spotlight on her retreat centre.

It received further widespread attention through Tim Ferris’s book, The 4-Hour Body. Tim Ferris, formerly (but probably no longer) best-known for The 4-Hour Work Week, published his most recent book this year. Featuring sections on weight loss, adding muscle, perfecting sleep and reversing injuries, I suspect the most-widely read chapter is the one entitled Improving Sex, which begins with a description of the 15-minute female orgasm as taught by Nicole Daedone at her OneTaste retreat centres.
