The Key to Living in the Present | Jake Goldberg Debunking the paleo diet | Christina 1 day ago   10:06

TEDx Talks
Sometimes, events that have occurred in the past can trap you, leaving you anxious and fearful about what is ahead. The past is like a jail cell, surrounding you and preventing you from living in freedom. That freedom, as Jake explains in this TED talk, is the present moment. Originally from New Jersey, Jake is a sophomore at Saint Andrew’s School. Jake is extremely involved in the Saint Andrew's community, participating in various clubs including SASSA, Student Council, Harvard Model Congress, and the Turtle Habitation Club. Jake also traveled with the Round Square program to Thailand. One thing that makes Jake different than his peers is his enjoyment of public speaking and talking in front of big audiences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Debunking the paleo diet | Christina The Key to Living in the Present | Jake Goldberg 1 day ago   22:19

TED Fellow Christina Warinner is an expert on ancient diets. So how much of the diet phad the "Paleo Diet" is based on an actual Paleolithic diet? The answer is not really any of it.

Dr. Christina Warinner has excavated around the world, from the Maya jungles of Belize to the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, and she is pioneering the biomolecular investigation of archaeological dental calculus (tartar) to study long-term trends in human health and diet. She is a 2012 TED Fellow, and her work has been featured in Wired UK, the Observer,, Der Freitag, and Sveriges TV. She obtained her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2010, specializing in ancient DNA analysis and paleodietary reconstruction.

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)
