    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.

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

Elon Musk was the final straw

There have been some really interesting people that TED has given voice to over the years. But, giving Musk over an hour was too much for me. Perhaps in the early days before it was clear how deeply problematic he was, but to give him such an extended platform in 2022? Hardly the first time TED has elevated rich, white, middle-aged-but-oh-so-adolescent tech bros. I’m done with TED.

The once-great forum is dead

Ted talks have degenerated into a series of underqualified middling orators using the platform to push one leftist cause after another. It’s wandered far afield of its original Technology, Engineering, and Design focus. I haven’t seen a compelling segment in months; I’m not the slightest bit interested in how women and girls can stop global warming, nor do I care about trans activism.
