Emotional laws are the answer for better relationships: Diana Wais at TEDxThessaloniki

Nuclear physics, astronomy and molecular biology truly lack complexity when they are juxtaposed to one word: relationships. Interpersonal relationships represent probably one of the most complicated ideas that have troubled the human mind.

Whether it's aristocracy, models, professional athletes or every day couples they all face the same difficulty of making their relationships work. Diana Wais talked about how we are all the same and how we respond with criticism when we feel threatened by words.

However, it is important to respond to the other person's need with empathy, she said. It is difficult to understand when you are being emotional and when irrational. Her most valid point though was that, as individuals, we need to conquer the unconscious emotions and understand that essentially, we are all fighting the same internal fight.

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)

Weather in Art: From Symbol to Science

David Gariff, senior lecturer, National Gallery of Art
Offered in conjunction with the exhibition True to Nature: Open-Air Painting in Europe, 1780–1870 on view at the National Gallery of Art February 2 – May 3, 2020, senior lecturer David Gariff discusses shifting definitions and visual explorations of weather in European painting. In this lecture, presented on February 26, 2020, at the National Gallery of Art, Gariff investigates how approaches to painting the effects of weather — storms, rain, snow, wind, floods, and cloud formations — slowly transform from symbolic portrayals in religious, mythological, and history paintings to more scientific and empirical depictions of weather, reflecting the influence of the new science of meteorology emerging in the nineteenth century.

Second day of Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing - 10/13 (FULL LIVE STREAM)

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold its second day of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Oct. 13. President Trump’s nominee will undergo a public vetting before 22 senators, an audience of friendly Republicans and extremely critical Democrats.

Barrett’s conservative legal views and her closeness to her former boss and mentor, the conservative icon Justice Antonin Scalia, have raised concerns from Democrats that she will push the court further to the right in ways that could be difficult to reverse for years or even decades.

The Post’s Libby Casey will anchor live, uninterrupted coverage and be joined by reporters Robert Barnes, Aaron Blake, Rhonda Colvin, Emily Guskin, Tom Hamburger, James Hohmann and Robert O’Harrow for analysis before and after the hearing. Read more: Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube:

How 40 Seconds of Compassion Could Save a Life | Stephen Trzeciak | TEDxPenn

What if healthcare providers spent an extra 40 seconds showing compassion for their patients? The scientific evidence may surprise you. Through his pioneering work in the field of “Compassionomics”, Dr. Stephen Trzeciak has found that just 40 seconds of compassion can be a powerful therapy – not only for the receiver of compassion, but for the giver, too. It changes everything. In this TEDx talk, Dr. Trzeciak takes you on a journey through the evidence that compassion matters – in both meaningful and measurable ways. Science shows that compassionate care is beneficial for health (better patient outcomes), healthcare systems and payers (lower costs), and healthcare providers (lower burnout). That’s the power of 40 seconds. Stephen Trzeciak, MD, MPH is a physician scientist and Professor of Medicine at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, and the physician leader of the Adult Health Institute at Cooper University Health Care in Camden, New Jersey. Dr. Trzeciak is a practicing intensivist (specialist in intensive care medicine), and a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded clinical researcher with more than 100 publications in the scientific literature. Currently, Dr. Trzeciak’s scientific program is focused on a new line of research called “Compassionomics”. It’s the scientific evidence that caring makes a difference. Broadly, his quest is to make healthcare more compassionate through science. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Canceling cancel culture with compassion | Betty Hart | TEDxCherryCreekWomen

Cancel culture generally refers to celebrities, but what about the people in our inner circle we are cancelling due to ideological differences? What if instead of removing people from our lives, we extended compassion to them? In this moving talk, Betty Hart shares a poignant story of her father and the unlikely friendship of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Antonin Scalia. Betty advocates for curiosity, diversity, empathy, and valuing the whole of a person rather than individual aspects.

Betty Hart is an actor, director, facilitator and woman of faith whose mission is to help create space for necessary, and sometimes challenging, conversations. Betty is a theatre artist whose mission is to help create space for necessary conversations. These dialogues can center around who we are as individuals, who we desire to be as a community, or how we can change long standing behavior to become more than we ever imagined. Through acting, directing and facilitating, Betty strives to be a change agent and a force for positivity, creativity, and collaboration.
Betty is both an actor who is a member of the Actor's Equity Association, the union for professional actors, and a director. This year Betty directed The Scottsboro Boys for Vintage Theatre, one of the few shows produced in 2020, due to the Pandemic.

How Relationships Wire Children’s Brains | Christina Enright | Talks at Google

Babies are born with 100 billion neurons, by 3 years of age, 85% of brain connections are formed. In this talk child psychologist, Christina Enright delves into role our very first relationships play in this formation and brain development. Delving into Harvard research and the ‘Still Face’ experiment developed by Dr Edward Tronick, Christina presents a strong argument on how relationships wire children’s brains and help them to develop their personal resilience.

Over the past twelve years Christina has worked as a psychotherapist with children, adolescents and their families in a variety of settings. Christina has a special interest in the brain development, trauma and attachment; in particular, how parenting impacts on the global development, mental health and personality of a child, as well as how this manifests in human behaviour across the lifespan.

ClearView Church Online Service - January 3

Message: Called in One Body
Scripture Passage: Colossians 3:12-17
Lea Wilkening

We are called in one body but in polarized times, we don’t always feel united. We don’t always agree what united even means. Sometimes our attempts at keeping the peace further divide us into like-minded sub-groups but when we preference the maintenance of a perception of unity by not bringing to light topics where there is disagreement, we embrace a status quo that is unacceptable to the unfolding Kingdom of God. We’ll explore a biblical framework for how God uses conflict to shape Christlike character and unite us to one another.

Questions for reflection
1. How do you feel about conflict? What is your normal response to conflict?
2. What are ways you avoid touchy topics or prepare your responses to win?
3. What are some of the conflicts you experience today? Why might the issues be so “sticky”?
4. Where have you seen conflict go wrong?
5. Where have you seen conflict bring people closer together or promote flourishing?
6. Take some time to think through your relationships -- especially those with other believers. Are there any broken, tense, competitive, or difficult relationships? How could you promote a Christ-centered unity with these people?

Reading Compassion, Writing Care Professor David James

Care work has never felt more prominently placed in the public eye: the pandemic has exposed appalling healthcare inequities, placing social justice at the centre of a renewed political understanding of the structural threats to well-being. In this talk I’ll consider Christie Watson’s most recent book, The Courage to Care: A Call for Compassion, alongside Dear Life: A Doctor’s Story of Love and Loss, by palliative medicine specialist Rachel Clarke. Echoing the value Watson places on emotional ‘detail’ in nursing, Clarke suggests that ‘for all the hightech wizardry of modern medicine – the scans, the genomics, the molecular analyses – it is still the case that invariably, simply paying close attention to what a patient is telling us, a doctor can work out their diagnosis’. By foregrounding what they see as the crucially affective imperatives of
David James is Professor of Modern and Contemporary Literature at the University of Birmingham. His recent books include Discrepant Solace: Contemporary Literature and the Work of Consolation (Oxford University Press, 2019) and Modernism and Close Reading (Oxford University Press, 2020). He is currently at work on Sentimental Activism (forthcoming with Columbia University Press), a book that assesses the contemporary reanimation of sentimentalism across a variety of literary genres and in the itineraries of cultural criticism.
caregiving, they cultivate a sentimental style of observation and reflection that we might find both uncomfortable and instructive. The language of pathos in The Courage to Care and Dear Life makes no attempt to hide how intensely such writer-practitioners emphasize the importance of ‘humanizing’ sentiments – kindness, compassion, empathy – that literary critics have come to view with some suspicion. But in so doing, they actually complement one key ambition of the ‘critical medical humanities’ in recent years: to articulate experiences of illness and care alike beyond the clinical discourse that surround them.
