Tonight I have the joy and privilege of speaking at the 2015 TEDxUtica event! I’ll be talking about How to Change the Future with Your Fork… a particular passion of mine. I’ll share the stage with equally passionate people tackling a range of fascinating topics, so I encourage you to check it out!
The event will be streaming live from 5pm to 9pm tonight. Catch it using this link: http://tedxutica.com/live
(Post-event I’ll have another link for you if you’d rather view all the awesomeness at a later date.)
My previous experience as a grant writer has left me, shall we say, a bit extra curious about where statistics and facts were pulled from whenever I hear some quoted in a talk or see them in an article somewhere without references.
So for everyone else out there who suffers from this same affliction of “trust but verify” (as the military puts it) or who is interested in reading more about any of the things that show up in my talk, here are the key sources and references I used in putting together my presentation.
Pottenger’s Prophesy by Grey Graham
Why Some Like It Hot by Gary Paul Nabhan
The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime by Adrian Raine
A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic by Marilyn Wedge
