Event Description

Should you eat like a caveman or office cubicle dweller – that’s the basis of a free seminar and book-signing sponsored by Spectrum Athletic Clubs and featuring Nell Stephenson, author of “PALEOISTA: Gain Energy, Get Lean, and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat.”  The benefits of embracing an “ancestral diet” (i.e., grass-fed meats, free-range poultry, wild fish, fresh vegetables, fruit and natural fats like nuts) will be explored at the presentation on Tuesday, June 26th at 7 p.m. at the South Bay location (2250 Park Place in El Segundo).

Stephenson, who gained notoriety by co-authoring the “The Paleo Diet Cookbook,” asserts that our “hunter-gather” roots are what our bodies require to function at its best.  Instead, we have embraced “diets of convenience,” which are foods rich in dairy, salt, refined sugar and processed oil. A self-proclaimed “Paleoista,” Stephenson insists that the human race is intended to eat off the land (i.e., what walks on it, grows from it, or swims in its waters) and in doing so will lose weight, gain energy and prevent diseases including hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and even cancer.

“PALEOISTA” will be available for purchase ($23) at the presentation/signing. Members and non-members are welcome, but space is limited.  Reservations are recommended by contacting Dan Schwab at dschwab@spectrumclubs.com.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
