recommended resources

-- Recommended Resources -- 

I really enjoy sharing resources, links, networking opportunities here in this section for anyone interested in having a positive impact with their time on this earth. Lately, I've been studiously going through the thousands of lectures put out by the TED institute's participants. It's a popular site. I look at it as free education, but more on the enlightening, inspiring, awe-striking knowledge and possibilities for our future. There are a surprising number of online educational and inspiring sites like this. It is exciting to see how much work is being done to create a better world. We can do our part by sharing the info we enjoy. So - why don't you help me by spreading the word about this blog, or sharing links to specific posts you enjoy? Or leave a comment, question or invitation for networking on the wide array of topics our blog offers. Perhaps you have an article, resources you'd like to share, or quotes that have inspired you. Maybe you are a poet. If so I'd love to hear from you and would definitely consider publishing it here on this blog to help you reach out to more people. But readers need to do their part too, by sharing / liking our blog - or starting a topic on something they've learned of / were reminded of. 

Today's theme: inspiring youth

People often like to see inspirational youth stand up for what they believe. While there is a huge dispute about GMO foods, since most of man's food has been selectively modified by man to be what we eat today, and many GM0 foods are created for the betterment of humans (i.e. vitamin enriched or protein enriched produce)... there are controversy's about the use of the technology, what is put in the food, how it was done, who paid for it to be done and who it benefits. In this talk 11-year-old Birke Baehr presents his talk about youth leaning more toward green and localize food production.

Here is another inspiring youth - one from an impoverished area where school is a luxury. He, none-the-less, educated himself about wind power via the community library and built machines for his family farm and, later, for others too. It is an inspiring tale for sure.
