Buddha: Genius of the Ancient World In part one of Genius of the Ancient World, Bettany investigates the revolutionary ideas of the Buddha. In his 20’s the Buddha abandoned his family, and homeland, in the foothills of the Himalayas, to embark on an ambitious philosophical quest: to find a solution to human suffering. On the Indian plains he experienced the challenging ideas, and extreme methods, of wandering ‘truth seekers’. But it was only when he found his own middle way, that he finally attained enlightenment – nirvana: a state of being where all delusion, desire and suffering were extinguished.

Drawing on archaeology and expert opinion, Bettany investigates this inspiring figure. 2015

A great innovator, he commandeered rituals and traditions of the past, to form a compelling philosophical vision. A pioneer in education, he attracted a loyal band of students, and tried to instill his principles of moral excellence and self-cultivation in China’s rulers. He died without seeing his goal achieved. But eventually his philosophy became the bedrock of Chinese culture. Drawing on archaeology and expert opinion, Bettany investigates this inspiring figure. 2015

TEDTalks: Guy Winch—Why we all need to practice emotional first aid We’ll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch.

Nazario tells his chilling story and suggests ways to help, rather than harm, teens in jail. 2015
TEDTalks: David Eagleman—Can we create new senses for humans? As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that.

TEDTalks: Alice Goffman—How we’re priming some kids for college — and others for prison In the United States, two institutions guide teenagers on the journey to adulthood: college and prison. Sociologist Alice Goffman spent six years in a troubled Philadelphia neighborhood and saw first-hand how teenagers of African-American and Latino backgrounds are funneled down the path to prison — sometimes starting with relatively minor infractions. In an impassioned talk she asks, “Why are we offering only handcuffs and jail time?” 2015
TEDTalks: Jimmy Nelson—Gorgeous portraits of the world’s vanishing people When Jimmy Nelson traveled to Siberia to photograph the Chukchi people, elders told him: “You cannot photograph us.

TEDTalks: Margaret Heffernan—Why it’s time to forget the pecking order at work Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It’s a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffernan points out: “Companies don’t have ideas. Only people do.” 2015
TEDTalks: Alaa Murabit—What my religion really says about women Strong faith is a core part of Alaa Murabit’s identity — but when she moved from Canada to Libya as a young woman, she was surprised how the tenets of Islam were used to severely limit women’s rights, independence and ability to lead. She wondered: Was this really religious doctrine? With humor, passion and a refreshingly rebellious spirt, she shares how she found examples of female leaders across the history of her faith — and how she speaks up for women using verses from the Koran. 2015
TEDTalks: Jon Ronson—When online shaming spirals out of control Twitter gives a voice to the voiceless, a way to speak up and hit back at perceived injustice. But sometimes, says Jon Ronson, things go too far.

TEDTalks: Steve Silberman—The forgotten history of autism Decades ago, few pediatricians had heard of autism. In 1975, 1 in 5,000 kids was estimated to have it. Today, 1 in 68 is on the autism spectrum. What caused this steep rise? Steve Silberman points to “a perfect storm of autism awareness” — a pair of psychologists with an accepting view, an unexpected pop culture moment and a new clinical test. But to really understand, we have to go back further to an Austrian doctor by the name of Hans Asperger, who published a pioneering paper in 1944. Because it was buried in time, autism has been shrouded in misunderstanding ever since. (This talk was part of a TED2015 session curated by Pop-Up Magazine: popupmagazine.com or @popupmag on Twitter.) 2015

TEDTalks: Genevieve von Petzinger—Why are these 32 symbols found in ancient caves all over Europe? Written language, the hallmark of human civilization, didn’t just suddenly appear one day. Thousands of years before the first fully developed writing systems, our ancestors scrawled geometric signs across the walls of the caves they sheltered in. Paleoanthropologist, rock art researcher and TED Senior Fellow Genevieve von Petzinger has studied and codified these ancient markings in caves across Europe.
