Mindful business: While working for a microfinance firm in Trujillo, Peru, Patrick was introduced to the broken Peruvian footwear industry made up of over 100,000 shoemakers who possess remarkable talent yet lack access to consistent work, fair-wages, and brand access to established international markets. Having had extensive exposure to such potential juxtaposed with a lack of access in other developing countries, Patrick developed a vision to push the fashion industry in a new direction by serving as one of the first fashion brands to deliver a superior yet ethically-produced product to consumers. Patrick is the Co-Founder & CEO of Nisolo. Patrick graduated from the Croft Institute for International Studies and Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College at the University of Mississippi. His experience using business as a force for good has led him across the globe ranging from Kenya and Uganda to Argentina and Peru.

Fashion and clothing are often seen as an unimportant part of everyday life. However, clothing can be, and is, so much more than that. Even though most don't put a lot of thought into what they put on their body in the morning it can say a lot about how they act, feel, and present themselves. Marshall McLuhan says that clothing is an extension of the body. It is a part of us, just extended from our actual being. A person can say who they are just by deciding what they wear. Society is always changing. The past always affects the future. Clothing reflects society. Clothing allows for individuals to be individuals. It creates diversity among groups yet reflects what is going on in the world at the same time. Past events, films, television, music, art, and people all have affected how far clothing has come and gone. They have given inspiration. Fashion is a culture in itself using what is around it to grow. It keeps advancing and growing from what has been to create new and more creative ideas.

We live in times of unprecedented, disruptive change and uncertainty and most people find it challenging to thrive in those circumstances. If ‘design thinking’ is the new black, then thinking like a fashion design may just be the next big thing! This talk takes the idea of design thinking and translates it into a series of very practical tips that you can employ yourself, every day to help you think more optimistically in times of uncertainty and ambiguity. Professor Suzi Vaughan has settled (for now) in Brisbane, Australia having studied, lived and worked in Europe and Asia. After graduating from St Martins School of Art in London with a Ba Hons in Fashion, she started her professional career as a fashion designer, later moving into fashion education. Since 2011 she has been part of the executive team of a large Australian university. With over thirty years’ experience of design practice and teaching, she has become an advocate for the power and potential of design thinking.

Much of our education system is geared towards giving people the skills to get a good job and a steady income. By contrast, very little attention is given to how to spend money well – by which we mean, in ways that stand a chance of properly increasing our sense of well-being and therefore justifying the sacrifices that went into earning the cash.

Questions: Can love make you sick? True or False? For many of us, society has become increasingly alienating, isolating and insane, and earning a buck means more degrees, compliance, ass-kissing, shit-eating, and inauthenticity? Can a generally unhealthy society produce healthy relationships? Do we live in a psychopathic society? True or False? Many of us feel hopeless about the possibility of either our escape from societal oppression or that political activism can create societal change? True or False? Can Living in America drive you insane? True or False? While historically some Americans have consciously faked mental illness to rebel from oppressive societal demands (e.g., a young Malcolm X acted crazy to avoid military service successfully), today, the vast majority of Americans who are diagnosed and treated for mental illness are in no way proud malingerers in the fashion of Malcolm X? True or False? Krishnamurti: “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”? True or False? Everybody goes a little bit crazy at the beginning of a relationship. Is that a massive generalization? Yes. Have I also found it to be true? Absolutely. How can love make you crazy? True or False? A psychopathic society would i.m.o mean that the society as a whole, and thus the members of it would be psychopathic. Which - among other things - would mean feel no remorse for what they do? True or False? When we are passionate about a person, it makes parts of our brain shut down, including the ones controlling fear/caution and judgment/spiritual discernment? True or False? I don’t mean to suggest that this “crazy” is always a bad thing. In some ways, it’s exciting to get caught up in the drama of new love. However, that “crazy” place often feels uncomfortable. It’s full of fear and anxiety. However, more importantly, it’s a dangerous place because, though it’s not real, you respond to it as if it were? True or False? The frontal cortex, vital to judgment, shuts down when we fall in love. MRI scans show this de-activation occurs only when someone is shown a photo of the person he or she adores, causing them to suspend all criticism or doubt? True or False? At the beginning of a relationship, people often lose touch with reality. They have a hard time distinguishing between fact and fiction. Most of us invent stories in our head and convince ourselves that they must be true. Good judgment and patience fly out the window for the most part? Is it possible to cultivate a sane Relationship within an insane society? True or False? Studies have shown brain chemical dopamine is at higher levels in those in love. Dopamine is key to our experiences of pleasure and pain, linked to desire, addiction, euphoria, and a surge may cause such acute feelings of reward that it makes love hard to give up. Tests show that taking opioid drugs such as cocaine have a similar effect on dopamine as love? Can you have Romantic love in an insane society? Are our dysfunctional relationships a byproduct of the insanity inherent within this society? Why is society generally considered to be insane? Is Depression a Sane Reaction to an Insane Society? A sane person to an insane society must appear crazy. Kurt Vonnegut, Welcome to the Monkey House “The whole life of the individual is nothing but the process of giving birth to himself; indeed, we should be fully born, when we die.” -Erich Fromm True or False? The default view of depression is that something is wrong with the sufferer, the person has a chemical imbalance in the brain, or there is a disease that needs fixing.

When we have a social agenda we still behave like those old scientists -- we agitate instead of innovate. So let's rethink devoting resources to the zero-sum game of politics and instead focus on enabling technologies that change society! http://bitcoinnordic.com In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

(22 Dec 2016) LEAD IN: For decades Britain's discontent over its European Union (EU) membership has simmered on, but then came the June referendum. Nationalism surfaced and Britain's voted to leave the EU. Brexit as it became known sent shockwaves through money markets and governments around the world. STORY-LINE: In the weeks running up to referendum judgement day, the British were busy with a little soul searching. Mulling over their shared history, the country's pride in their democracy and heritage. It was a year when Queen Elizabeth celebrated being the longest reigning UK monarch and the country celebrated her ninetieth birthday. The pomp and ceremony from her recent jubilee were still a source of pride and were reminiscent of the heydays when London style was considered to be world leading. In the 1960's British fashion and British pop were riding high. That sense of being at the vanguard of style has continued, according to Robert Johnston the Fashion Director of GQ Magazine: "You also think street scene, you think east London, you think hipsters, you think the most vibrant street fashion possibly in the world." Author Iain Aitch explained how a variety of heritages were now mixed up, making Britishness a more complex idea to communicate: "Everyone might say a Sunday roast or fish and chips, that's a quintessentially British meal, but then suddenly everyone says it's chicken tikka masala." But it wasn't this hipster, Brick Lane art and curry house side of Britain that won the vote. The referendum on June 23rd was to signal the start of a long debate. Britons for the first time had to absorb what being outside of the EU looked like. Britain joined what was then called the European Economic Community in January 1973. This was ratified by a referendum in 1975 with a resounding 67% majority. By the seventies, Britain was beset by strikes and disgruntled union workers. Traditional industries such as manufacturing and coal were in decline in the mid seventies. Unemployment exceeded one million for the first time in March 1975. By the August that figure had increased to 1.25 million. Some 83,000 immigrants were living in the UK by 1975, mostly from the Commonwealth. According to Migration Watch UK for the year ending December 2015, net migration to the UK was 333,000. And the lady had yet to turn. Margaret Thatcher MP (then leader of the opposition) campaigned to stay in the European Economic Community. Later as prime minister between 1979 and 1990, Thatcher was known for her tough line with Brussels, especially during negotiations for the Maastrict Treaty in 1992. The city of Maastrict is the home of the treaty which created the EU. As summer arrived, businesses, leading universities and research establishments were beginning to assess the impact of Brexit. For science and medicine, concerns were two fold. Britain had attracted thousands of top researchers as well as billions of Euros in grants. They went into research like this at Kings College London. This project is a multidisciplinary look at the potential causes and effects of autism. It's a long term project which is linked to other studies across Europe. Doctors and scientists aren't worried about losing cash in the short term, but falling behind in the knowledge race in the long term, especially as Britain has sought to place itself as a central base for the new industrial technologies. The other fear is losing the brains which have been drawn to British research, people who now fear they will need to move to other institutions to keep up with the cash and the research. The EU's Horizon 2020 budget is 80-billion Euro which funds medicine and science research across Europe. Many are retired and spend their pensions here.

In this talk I explore the changing nature of scientific authority in contemporary society. Intellectual elites have of course always wielded a disproportionate influence on politics. A main mechanism of this impact is in the creation of “political myth.” In short, political myth refers to a shared narrative of a social group that explains past, present and anticipated political events. Political myths are important because they contain an understanding of the causal mechanisms that are expected to link practical action with desired outcomes. When widely shared, political myth can be invisible. As John Maynard Keynes wrote in 1936, “practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist… it is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil.” Influential political myths that have escaped beyond the intellectual community to influence broader politics and society include the notion of basic research and the associated linear model of research, the so-called “green revolution” and global agricultural innovation, and the social and political movement focused on human-caused climate change. I’m sure you can think of many others. Ideas really do change the world. Today, I argue, the political influence of scientific authority is about much more than powerful ideas. In this talk I will argue, in exploratory and provocative fashion, that the dynamics of scientific authority have changed profoundly in recent years and decades. Intellectuals no longer influence the world primarily through ideas that shape and become dominant political myths (though to be sure this remains an important mechanism of scientific authority). In addition, the highly-educated have come to be a powerful economic and political force in society. As such, we have come to take on the characteristics common to other interest groups, and unsurprisingly, a focus on self-interests over common interests. In addition to being highly educated, we (and yes, that is us) overwhelmingly vote left, are wealthy, hold “globalist” views and sort ourselves in our social and geographic characteristics accordingly. I will present a broad array of data in support of these assertions, with a focus on the US, but with some comparisons to France and the UK. In an era characterized by populist politics, associated with broad nationalistic, anti-immigrant, authoritarian and anti-intellectual tendencies among significant swaths of the public in the US and Europe, the growing political and social authority of scientists and academics suggests a profound rethinking of our roles in modern society. We need new political myths and mechanisms of mythmaking appropriate for today’s world. In this new context, if we are not careful our actions could reinforce the very tendencies that we seek to oppose, and arguably they already have.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Social Media historian Allison Graham offers a witty and ironic view of a society that feels alone together despite the hundreds of virtual connections we have online. With a global population growing up via Facebook and Twitter and a perceptible shift in human interpersonal connections, the constant need for social self-validation permeates our daily existence. This talk shares the funny and revealing insights of a life lived online and how social media is used to connect and disconnect us. A graduate of Southern Methodist University, Allison has worked all over the country and globe bringing the written word to life on the big screen. Allison has worked for Artisan Entertainment, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, 20th Century Fox, Miramax and Dreamworks SKG as Assistant Director, Production Manager, and Producer working with such titans as Jerry Bruckheimer, Michael Bay, Timur Bekmamvetov and Tim Burton. She was one of the key business strategists behind The Blair Witch Franchise marketing campaigns, leading the team responsible for revolutionizing the way the Internet and film marketing were viewed. Allison enjoys cooking from scratch, bicycle rides on flat terrain, conga lines and diving boards. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

More at http://www.newdream.org Video by New Dream Psychologist Tim Kasser discusses how America's culture of consumerism undermines our well-being. When people buy into the ever-present marketing messages that "the good life" is "the goods life," they not only use up Earth's limited resources, but they are less happy and less inclined toward helping others. The animation both lays out the problems of excess materialism and points toward solutions that promise a healthier, more just, and more sustainable life.

Presenter: Associate Professor Ekant Veer • Why does marketing have such a bad reputation? • Can marketing actually be used to improve society and consumer welfare? • What can be done to improve the effectiveness of marketing campaigns to improve consumers' lives? • How can social media be used as a means of understanding consumers better? Marketing has long been thought of as part of the problem, rather than the solution to consumer welfare. However, there are increasing ways in which marketers are being used to improve society and consumers' lives beyond the usually ineffectual health advertising we see on TV. This lecture looks at the multiple ways in which marketing is being used to impact society and improve the lives of consumers. By drawing on Dr Veer's work in health, mental illness, not-for-profit marketing and consumer resilience we look at the ways in which marketing techniques can be used to understand consumers' needs better and lead to an improvement in their lives. Specifically, this lecture looks at the role of social media, community engagement projects and Transformative Consumer Research techniques that can be used to understand consumers' needs more effectively and impact their lives in a practical way. This lecture is open to all and will have a strong practical focus to aid those currently working in or hoping to work in the area of consumer welfare and marketing.

Newsrooms are significantly smaller now than they were 10 years ago, and news is no longer a once-a-day product, but instead a constant flow of information. The rise of Twitter brought concerns within the industry - would this overwhelming source of direct raw information put professional reporters out of business? Journalists are now faced with the challenge of adapting their roles in this digital era, finding new ways to add value to content, and helping to ensure that the internet is changing our worldview for the better.
