I wonder which category the kolaveri song comes under.
Tavi Gevinson is a teenage girl who is figuring out what it is like to be a feminist and what makes a strong female character.
She started a website related to fashion and invited people to send photographs, article or anything of that sort which is related to figuring out a teen girl’s life.
She emphasizes the fact that it’s okay to be not clear but be unapologetic about things which you do in your life.
This ted video is about teen girls figuring out and also about the motives behind Tavi’s website which is closely related to what makes a strong female character.
It’s not just the trees which give us the oxygen.
It’s also the unseen sea microbes which contribute to the oxygen we breathe.
These tiny sea microbes (It’s told that a single spoon of a sea water contains 5 millions of bacteria and 50 millions of viruses) does associate with the humans in many ways. Watch the video and know yourself how they influence the environment.
The study of microbes has started only off late and some of the astounding facts about sea microbes are what Melissa Garren shared with us through this ted talk. So this is a TED video about the unseen sea and the microbes in it.
Kelly Anderson who is a designer and artist by choice, in this ted talk narrates about 3 of her projects and walks us through the experience she got out of them.
The first project is a holiday card which she has designed for her friend. When she showed the card it looked like, just another holiday card with fancy texture and some weird design. The real beauty was seen only when she unfolded and folded the whole card. It was a creation not just a card. It was a documentary of opening the card itself. A sheer master piece I would say.
The second project was a wedding invitation. That was for her musical friends who were getting married. They wanted to have their own song composition in their invitation. So Kelly did all the research work and got it done for them. The audience funny bones were trickled when she explained how she asked the paper producers to supply her with paper of good audio property.
The third project was to sell newspapers similar to the New York Times with the news which people would love to see in the papers. Most of good news is distant reality. In her third project she made that distant reality a possibility. They printed all the good news instead of the actual news and circulated it to the New York City. The look at every reader’s face when they saw the fake news was a laughing riot for the audience.
The 16 minutes of watching the video is a fun ride. I did not want it to end. Ms. Anderson is truly remarkable. The way she narrated the whole concept of why life is so boring when you travel in the beaten path is impeccable. The talk basically highlights the following 2 points
- Don’t do the regular stuff ‘coz most of them are dull, boring and depressing.
- We need change. So design that change in a unique way.
Watch it and enjoy
