    To futureproof your job against robots and AI, you should learn how to code, brush up on your math skills and crack open an engineering textbook, right? Wrong.

    The people who caused the climate crisis aren't the ones who will fix it | Angela Mahecha Adrar

    The people who caused the climate crisis aren't the ones who will fix it | Angela Mahecha Adrar

    Corporations and big business have wrecked the environment, but disadvantaged communities living in "sacrifice zones" -- urban areas heavily polluted and poisoned by industry -- are paying the price, says climate justice leader Angela Mahecha Adrar. Explaining why racial and economic justice must be at the center of climate action, she takes us to the frontline communities that are leading the world to clean, innovative and just climate solutions -- like Cooperativa Tierra y Libertad, a local farm co-op in Washington that's disrupting the multibillion-dollar berry business.

    Why there's no such thing as objective reality | Greg Anderson

    Why there's no such thing as objective reality | Greg Anderson

    In the grand scheme of history, modern reality is a bizarre exception when compared to the worlds of ancient, precolonial and Indigenous civilizations, where myths ruled and gods roamed, says historian Greg Anderson. So why do Westerners today think they're right about reality and everybody else is wrong? Anderson tears into the fabric of objective reality to reveal the many universes that lie beyond -- and encourages a healthy reimagining of what other possible ways of being human could look like.

Attention

Excellent description of my sister
She developed her on following on the Internet
I am not sure of all the different terms used for the various platforms used
But it about killed her to get put into face book jail for spewing hate messages
This Ted Talk definitely afforded me an understanding of social media
But not range on all those find a friend. Make a friend. Fake a friend sites

Stay out of Politics

TED talks is slowly turning into VICE news.

Keep on the scientific and interesting topics, I don’t listen to TED for politics. Hundreds of other political podcasts I can go to for that.

Awesome

A lot of people stereotype Tedtalks to being something to listen or watch, but learn nothing at all. And that’s what I thought. Until about 3 months ago. Now I realize that these people’s life passions and success are being told through this “outreach.” It’s amazing and definitely worth a listen.
