On Defilement

a lecture in English

Human sexuality shows occasional very surprising inclinations towards "defilement", even within otherwise extremely respectful and kind people. We shouldn’t be too surprised, as ever, by the unusual pathways of our sexuality. We should learn to understand them.

The Immune System Explained I – Bacteria Infection

a lecture in English

Every second of your life you are under attack. Bacteria, viruses, spores and more living stuff wants to enter your body and use its resources for itself. The immune system is a powerful army of cells that fights like a T-Rex on speed and sacrifices itself for your survival. Without it you would die in no time. This sounds simple but the reality is complex, beautiful and just awesome. An animation of the immune system.

We are thinking of making an App for tablets out of this video. Would you like that? Did you think the visual system we developed worked? Feedback is much appreciated!

You can get the MUSIC of the video here: http://thomasveith.bandcamp.com/track/the-immune-system

Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

The poetry of programming | Linda Liukas | TEDxCERN

a talk in English

Linda Liukas believes that a movement in technology is already happening and that we need to engage everyone -- especially the next generation -- to take part. She wants to create a more diverse and colourful world of technology, starting with the poetry of code.

Linda Liukas is a programmer, storyteller and illustrator. Her children's book, Hello Ruby, raised a total of $380,000 on Kickstarter. She founded Rails Girls, which has organized workshops in over 230 cities, teaching the basics of programming to more than 10,000 women. Linda worked at Codeacademy, which she left to write stories that teach children about software and programming. She won the 2013 Ruby Hero prize and was named the Digital Champion of Finland by the EU Commissioner for Digital Agenda.

Forgiveness

a lecture in English

We have all had times in our relationships when we hurt a loved one, or a loved one hurt us. That's part of life. But not all of us know how to forgive, even when the other party has offered a sincere apology. In this Prager University course, UCLA psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Marmer shares the three types of forgiveness--exoneration, forbearance, and release--and explains why anyone who wants to mend meaningful relationships must first understand forgiveness. Internalizing Dr. Marmer's teaching can be an important first step, for many people, to keeping and fixing their most valued relationships.

Supersize sperm from the past

a lecture in English

Scientists have found the oldest sperm ever discovered, and they are whoppers. They belong to a type of tiny crustacean called an Ostracod. The finding suggests that Ostracods evolved their gargantuan gametes far earlier than their rivals in the supersize sperm leagues, the fruit flies.

For as far back as we can trace our existence, humans have been fascinated with death and resurrection. But is resurrection really possible?

This Ancient Siberian Bacteria Could Hold the Secret to Immortality

a talk in English

After injecting himself with ancient bacteria found in Russian permafrost, Anatoli Brouchkov says he feels healthier than ever before. But the geocryologist admits that his self-administered treatment was a stunt; the real science happens in his lab at Moscow State University, where he analyzes strains of bacteria to tease out the keys to longevity. We caught up with Brouchkov while he was in Canada recently, investigating Arctic permafrost, to talk about everything from everlasting life and whether ancient bacteria could be the key to longevity to 3.5 million year old bacteria-infused martinis. Zazdarovje!
