Nationalism vs. globalism: the new political divide | Yuval Noah Harari

How do we make sense of today's political divisions? In a wide-ranging conversation full of insight, historian Yuval Harari places our current turmoil in a broader context, against the ongoing disruption of our technology, climate, media -- even our notion of what humanity is for. This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness. Make time (just over an hour) for this fascinating discussion between Harari and TED curator Chris Anderson.

The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

In October 2017, astrobiologist Karen J. Meech got the call every astronomer waits for: NASA had spotted the very first visitor from another star system. The interstellar comet -- a half-mile-long object eventually named `Oumuamua, from the Hawaiian for "scout" or "messenger" -- raised intriguing questions: Was it a chunk of rocky debris from a new star system, shredded material from a supernova explosion, evidence of alien technology or something else altogether? In this riveting talk, Meech tells the story of how her team raced against the clock to find answers about this unexpected gift from afar.

My stroke of insight | Jill Bolte Taylor

My stroke of insight | Jill Bolte Taylor

http://www.ted.com Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.

Depression, the secret we share | Andrew Solomon

Depression, the secret we share | Andrew Solomon

"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment." In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression -- only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.

Leveraging mobile devices to improve healthcare | Mohammed Dalwai | TEDxCapeTown

Leveraging mobile devices to improve healthcare | Mohammed Dalwai | TEDxCapeTown

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. More people have access to mobile devices than to clean drinking water in the developing world. Mohammed asks the question: Can we leverage mobile devices to improve healthcare? Mohammed holds an MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) from University of Stellenbosch. He is passionate about the impact of medicine within the rural context having completed his Community Service at Manguzi – a rural community – in the Maputaland region of the KwaZulu-Natal province. This led him to join MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres – Doctors without Borders) as an ER doctor in various countries such as Pakistan, Libya and Syria. In 2012, the Mail & Guardian recognized Mohammed as one of South Africa’s Top 200 young and most interesting people specifically for his groundbreaking work around the South African triage score and its implementation across the world. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Emergency Medicine at the University of Cape Town. In 2012 he co founded The Open Medicine Project, a non profit aimed at capacitating healthcare workers in the developing world using mobile technology. Their EM guidance app has been downloaded in over 145 countries and is being used by over 7000 health workers worldwide. Mohammed believes in the accumulative value of individual contributions with the overall imperative of changing the world, one step at time 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)

Jose Miguel Sokoloff: How we used Christmas lights to fight a war
