2 days ago En

Krista Tippett founded and leads “The On Being Project,” hosts the globally esteemed On Being public radio show and podcast, and curates the “Civil Conversations Project,” an emergent approach to conversation and relationships across the differences of our age. She is a Peabody-award winning broadcaster, National Humanities Medalist, New York Times bestselling author, and the 2019 Mimi and Peter E. Haas Distinguished Visitor at Stanford University. Danielle Krettek from Google Empathy Lab welcomes Tippett for a conversation on "The Art of Generous Listening", where they discuss creating spaces of trust and unfolding with curiosity, intention and hospitality. Listening is about being actively present, not just about being quiet. It's a practice of being open to the mystery and surprise. Central is a theme of deep human care and empathy, how to "repair the world we can touch" by bringing back the social art of connection and asking our eternal human questions — what it means to be human, how to live well and how we are to be with each other. Krettek and Tippett discuss topics from technology to wisdom to beauty, enjoying moments with Mary Oliver and John O'Donohoe's poetry to Pico Iyer's urge for slowness. Moderated by Danielle Krettek.

Erena Shimoda: "The Power of Total Immersion" | Talks at Google Erena Shimoda: "The Power of Total Immersion" | Talks at Google
1 week ago En
Tokyo-born photographer Erena Shimoda discusses her groundbreaking underwater photography of breast cancer and domestic abuse survivors, people with disabilities, and those living with post-traumatic stress disorder -- and the powerful effects that these submerged portrait sessions have had on the individuals she’s captured. Erena began taking portraits of survivors underwater after a car accident, in which she lost her father and was severely injured herself. As a part of her own healing process, she volunteered at the “Look Good, Feel Better” program (then-sponsored by the American Cancer Society), which helps build confidence and provide reassurance for cancer patients who underwent transformative surgeries as part of their treatment, and helps them find beauty and comfort in their new bodies. Witnessing the transformative effect of the portraits she took in this program prompted Erena to do a more expansive series for a larger group of survivors -- not just to demonstrate the beauty of all bodies, but to also reflect that beauty back to the portrait subjects themselves, with the hopes of further building their confidence, self-image, and recovery. Now, Erena serves as an Ikelite ambassador, underwater portrait photographer and certified PADI® Divemaster. (Learn more at: https://www.ikelite.com/blogs/ambassadors/erena-shimoda) Erena is joined by Laurie Ratliff, one of her portrait subjects, who discusses her experience being photographed underwater by Erena.

2 weeks ago En
The former Google executive, editorial director of Twitter and self-described introvert offers networking advice for anyone who has ever cancelled a coffee date due to social anxiety—about how to nurture a vibrant circle of reliable contacts without leaving your comfort zone. Networking has garnered a reputation as a sort of necessary evil in the modern business world. Some do relish the opportunity to boldly work the room, introduce themselves to strangers, and find common career ground—but for many others, the experience is often awkward, or even terrifying. The common networking advice for introverts are variations on the theme of overcoming or “fixing” their quiet tendencies. But Karen Wickre is a self-described introvert who has worked in Silicon Valley for 30 years. She shows you to embrace your true nature to create sustainable connections that can be called upon for you to get—and give—career assistance, advice, introductions, and lasting connections. Karen’s “embrace your quiet side” approach is for anyone who finds themselves shying away from traditional networking activities, or for those who would rather be curled up with a good book on a Friday night than out at a party. For example, if you’re anxious about that big professional mixer full of people you don’t know, she advises you to consider skipping it (many of these are not productive), and instead set up an intimate, one-on-one coffee date. She shows how to truly make the most out of social media to sustain what she calls “the loose touch habit” to build your own brain trust to last a lifetime. With compelling arguments and creative strategies, this new way to network is perfect not only for introverts, but for anyone who wants for a less conventional approach to get ahead in today’s job market.

Antoine Bello: "The Truth Does Not Exist" | Talks at Google Antoine Bello: "The Truth Does Not Exist" | Talks at Google
2 weeks ago En
Most often, what we call truth is only an expression of our subjectivity, an interpretation, not to say a pure fiction. Throughout his ten novels, Antoine Bello explores how the confusion between truth and fiction is rooted in the human ability to make up stories and affects virtually every corner or our lives, including history and science. Prepare for a shocker, you might not like what you hear! Antoine Bello is a multifaceted character. Born in 1970 in Boston of French parents, he founded his company Hors Ligne, later renamed Ubiqus, while he was still a student at HEC. The company wrote minutes for meeting organizers and in 15 years he turned it into a 500 people organization with presence in France, Belgium, England, Canada and the US. Antoine is also an avid reader who started a second career as a writer in 1993 and has since then published 10 novels and won multiple awards. The falsifiers, which tells the story of the rise of a young icelander within the CFR, an organization dedicated to falsifying reality and rewriting history is his most successful book to date. It is followed by two installments. In Scherbius (and I), his latest novel published in May 2018, he explores the relationship between a pathological imposter and his psychiatrist. Antoine is also a family man with 4 children who lives in NYC and a staunch supporter of Wikipedia to which he has been donating all his royalties since 2014.

How did global gaming company Electronic Arts go from being named "Worst Company in America" to clearing a billion dollars in profit?

Prize-winning author Edith Sheffer presents her ground-breaking research on Asperger Syndrome with Google's Eileen Naughton. Sheffer exposes how Hans Asperger, widely seen as a compassionate pioneer of autism and Asperger syndrome in Nazi Vienna, actually participated in the Third Reich's murder of disabled children considered "unworthy of life" and crafted his definition of autism around Nazi ideology and institutions. Sheffer and Naughton discuss the significance of these revelations for the treatment of autism now -- and whether the term "Asperger's" should remain in common use. Their conversation spans the state of psychiatry today, the proliferation of mental diagnoses, and the role of neurodiversity in the workplace. Sheffer is a Senior Fellow at the Institute for European Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. More information at www.aspergerschildren.com. Moderated by Eileen Naughton.

Girls being fearless. Girls being silly. Girls being wild, stubborn, and proud. Girls whose faces are smeared with dirt and lit up with joy. So simple and yet so powerful, Strong Is the New Pretty celebrates the strength and spirit of girls being 100% themselves. Real beauty isn’t about being a certain size, acting a certain way, wearing the right clothes, or having your hair done (or even brushed). Real beauty is about being your authentic self and owning it. A celebration, a catalog of spirit in words and smiles, an affirmation of the fact that it’s what’s inside you that counts, Strong Is the New Pretty conveys a powerful message for every girl, for every mother and father of a girl, for every coach and mentor and teacher, for everyone in the village that it takes to raise a strong and self-confident person. Watch Kate T. Parker, a professional photographer who finds the real beauty in girls, and Andrew Ference, a retired NHL Stanley Cup Champion and father of two girls, talk about empowering young girls through sports.

Robert Kaplan (along with Ellen Kaplan) founded The Math Circle, the internationally renowned program that has taught the joy of mathematics to children and adults since 1994. Started at Harvard, it has spread across the United States and to Brazil, reaching over 25,000 students in 3000 groups. Now known as Global Math Circle, the program is spreading around the world, through online video conversations groups, open to all. In Kaplan’s own words, “Why should so many be bored or frightened by math, the art of the infinite, our window on form, the keys to the kingdom of meaning? In The Math Circle we aim to give children of any age the self-esteem and admiration of their friends that comes from discovering math together, in collegial conversation. We tell no one anything, no more than posing an accessible mystery and letting them invent their way to insight and proof. Classes are buoyant and intense, without put-downs, tests or grades. For the leader they are high-wire acts without a safety net. I’ll hold such a class with some ten Googler kids, and look forward to discussing with you what happened and why.” Robert Kaplan is the acclaimed author of the “The Art of the Infinite: The Pleasure of Mathematics” and “Out of the Labyrinth: Setting Mathematics Free”.

Why the Internet was designed to be the way it is, and how it could be different, now and in the future. How do you design an internet? The architecture of the current Internet is the product of basic design decisions made early in its history. What would an internet look like if it were designed, today, from the ground up? In this book, MIT computer scientist David Clark explains how the Internet is actually put together, what requirements it was designed to meet, and why different design decisions would create different internets. He does not take today's Internet as a given but tries to learn from it, and from alternative proposals for what an internet might be, in order to draw some general conclusions about network architecture.

Felipe discusses his own story and unpacks the invisible identity of the migrant worker in the United States. Between 1 and 3 million migrant farm workers leave their homes every year to plant, cultivate, harvest, and pack fruits, vegetables and nuts in the U.S. Although invisible to most people, the presence of migrant farm workers in many rural communities throughout the nation is undeniable, since hand labor is still necessary for the production of the blemish-free fruits and vegetables that consumers demand. Dr. Felipe Lopez Sustaita worked as a migrant farm worker in Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, and Michigan with his family until he started college in 2001. As one of the few who made it out of the fields and pursued an education he made it his life mission to advocate for underserved communities through his involvement with government, local schools and organizations.

Olympian AJ Edelman: "Israel Skeleton - What Defines a Champion" | Talks at Google Olympian AJ Edelman: "Israel Skeleton - What Defines a Champion" | Talks at Google
2 months ago En
AJ Edelman is Israel’s first ever sliding-sport Olympian, a 4x national champion, 2x World Championships entrant, most decorated Israeli slider, and is believed to be the first Orthodox Jewish Winter Olympian ever. In March, 2014, AJ tried skeleton for the first time at Lake Placid Bobsled run, as a prospective Israeli athlete. The Israeli Federation was informed from coaches that “he will never be competitive.” A rising product manager at Oracle with an MIT degree, AJ quit his job and threw himself into training nonstop in skeleton with the goal of proving that it was possible to accomplish great, even impossible tasks with the right motivation. Because of no government funding, AJ self-funded and could not afford a coach. He coached himself, watching 6-8 hours of YouTube videos per day, in addition to his physical training. On February 15, 2018 AJ became Israel’s first ever sliding Olympian. AJ’s story is one of relentless pursuit of excellence, and sacrifice for a goal larger than himself. Come hear AJ talk about the lessons he’s learned on his journey, from overcoming fear and self-doubt to the intense politics of Olympic sport.
