TED Talks are inspiring. They reach deep into perspectives so cosmic. They challenge the status quo. But is that not how we learn, and grow, and become better people?
TED Talks are an opportunity for all of us to sit up, listen and understand what lies away from our local sphere—even the far-away sights and sounds, cultures, and emotions of all textures, so to speak.
In a short video that Hollywood star, Salma Hayek posted on her Instagram platform, June 4, 2020, she makes an impassioned plea to her brothers and sisters, from Mexico and Latin America, to come around and lend support to the African Americans’ cause.
“To my Latin-American Community,” she started carefully, making cogent of the need to join the Black Lives Matter Movement and speak up against injustice. She, practically, was imploring them to drag themselves from their it’s-not-my-fight attitude, and rise to the occasion.
90% of the time, the Opposition in Uganda spends its energies lecturing government on democracy and proper management. The assumption would be that they have deeply internalized the tenets of democratic organization – especially “dialogue” and harmonization – as opposed to impulsiveness.
In its classic forms, according to Ian Tyrrell, American Exceptionalism refers to the special character of the United States as a uniquely free nation based on democratic ideals and personal liberty.

The president’s photographer, Pete Souza, December 2016 selected the finest photos from inside the White House and beyond for his final annual review, before the Obama administration is replaced in January.
Newly elected US President, Donald Trump and incumbent President, Barack Obama never met once in the last eight years; the two had instead been at it, rivaling each other. But events have taken such an unprecedented twist and it looks like the two might finally bury the hatchet. Today, “the Donald” has actually met with President Obama and the two could not be more cordial to each other.
(LOUISVILLE, Ky.)—A newborn arrived on a cold Louisville day in January 1942. His parents named him Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. “Imagine that day,” Mayor Greg Fischer marveled on Saturday. “That little boy, eyes wide open, looking up, looking around the room at the old Louisville General Hospital, not knowing the life that awaited him, the…
