    How data-driven journalism illuminates patterns of injustice | Alison Killing

    How data-driven journalism illuminates patterns of injustice | Alison Killing

    A blank spot on a digital map can signal much more than a gap in data -- it can mean something is being intentionally hidden. Sharing the remarkable discovery of massive alleged detention camps in Xinjiang, China, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alison Killing shows how governments can obscure human rights abuses by limiting journalist access on the ground -- and calls for more reliable open-source data (like satellite and social media imagery) to shine a light on the world's darkest places.

    The blind spots of the green energy transition | Olivia Lazard

    The blind spots of the green energy transition | Olivia Lazard

    The world needs clean power, but decarbonization calls for a massive increase in the mining and extraction of minerals like lithium, graphite and cobalt. Environmental peacemaking expert Olivia Lazard sheds light on the scramble for these precious mineral resources -- and how the countries that control their supply chains (including China and Russia) could find themselves at the center of the new global stage. Learn why Lazard thinks planetary security depends on our ability to de-escalate resource competition and avoid the same mistakes that led to the climate crisis.

    Why healthy soil matters now more than ever | Jane Zelikova

    Why healthy soil matters now more than ever | Jane Zelikova

    From nourishing our foods to storing massive amounts of carbon, soil is teeming with diverse microbial life that could slow global warming. Climate change scientist Jane Zelikova calls for agricultural practices that protect Earth's soil by growing climate-adapted crops that don't mess with the microbes. "Soils are the literal foundation of life on this planet -- the reason that we eat and the climate solution just waiting to be unlocked," she says.

    Why art is a tool for hope | JR

    Why art is a tool for hope | JR

    Famed for enormous black-and-white portraits that are pasted on surfaces ranging from the Louvre to the US-Mexico border wall, multimedia artist JR continues to tackle ambitious projects. In this powerfully moving talk, he shares how he made a giant mural on the courtyard floor of a maximum-security prison -- with the help of guards and prisoners alike -- and ended up with much more than a compelling image.

TeTV

These are great podcasts. I watch them from iTunes only. Unfortunately they don`t work on my ipod nano. I read reviews on the web from many people having similar issue. I do hope this issue gets resolved since I enjoy watching these short video clips.

TED Talks WON'T PLAY on APPLE TV

My wife and I have been thoroughly enjoying the TED talks. So much so we bought an AppleTv for the kitchen just to watch them while we cook. Recently some of the newer episodes won't play. In fact they actually cause my AppleTV to lock up (!) which is only resolved by unplugging the AppleTV and restarting.
This is very frustrating.

If I open the files in Quictime and look at the specs the only difference I can see appears to be resolution specs: the old resolution was 850x480, where the newer talks are 853 or 854 x480. Is this what is screwing them up? I don't know...but I sure wish they'd fix the darn things.
