DAWG Talk: Stupidity Can Equal Success



In the recruiting business, we see a lot of dumb decisions. Sometimes, candidates accept an offer out of desperation. Sometimes, companies extend offers to less than ideal candidates in an effort to stave off some crisis.



For a long time though, it’s been my contention that people aren’t really stupid. It’s just that they’re self-absorbed; focused on the priority at hand. Biologically, human beings have a survival instinct. Today, our… Continue

Life, for many people, is about the pursuit of happiness. In fact, the Declaration of Independence is very clear. It states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”



We spend our lives seeking out what brings us joy. Just thinking about certain experiences can bring a sense of comfort and well-being. You know the… Continue

DAWG Talk: Tattoo Too Much?

Body art, such as tattoos (and piercings), can be seen in every walk of life. They are pervasive in our culture. They are a means of self expression…differentiation. According to a 2006 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, it was determined that 36 percent of individuals age 18-25 had at least one tattoo. Among individuals age 26-40, around 40 percent of them had at least one tattoo. I wonder how different tattoos really are than hair or fingernail color, or even plastic… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
