My 10 favorite “Before I die” responses: Candy Chang celebrates the release of her book

TED Blog

[ted_talkteaser id=1553]When artist and TED Fellow Candy Chang first installed “Before I Die” — a public artwork that invites passers-by to share their life’s wishes on the side of an abandoned New Orleans building — she had no idea that the project would become a global phenomenon. Over the last two and a half years, people have taken it upon themselves to create “Before I Die” walls in 62 countries around the world, in 26 languages. An incredible 32 new walls were created in 12 countries in the last month alone.

Today, Chang launches the Before I Die, the book, documenting walls around the world and featuring the stories of the people who made them. “It’s a reminder of our shared connections as we try to make sense of our lives,” Chang tells the TED Blog.

To celebrate the release of the book, she sent us 10 of…

Criza economica a Marii Britanii dupa 1960

Frumoasa M. Britanie

Acces Liber

Criza economica a Marii Britanii dupa 1960Marea Britanie, locul de nastere al industrializarii, isi pierduse inca din 1900 rolul de lider in industrie si tehnica in fata competitiei europene si americane, insa cum Londra era atunci centrul infloritor al comertului mondial, britanicii nu-si ajustasera politica econmica in conformitate cu aceasta dezvoltare. In anii 1960, cand lira continua sa scada, radacinile crizei economice devin tot mai vizibile: economia britanica era pe punctul de a se prabusi din cauza mijloacelor de productie invechite, a pierderilor din productie cauzate de greve numeroase si extinderii exagerate a bugetului determinata de cresterea constanta a cheltuielilor sociale.

Incepand din 1979, noul premier conservator, Margaret Thatcher, initiaza politici economice liberale stricte. Acestea includeau retragerea statului din economie, extinderea privatizarii si reducerea impozitelor, insa si reducerea drepturilor muncitorilor si a ajutoarelor sociale acordate de stat. In consecinta, inflatia se diminueaza, iar rata investitiilor creste , insa foarte multe companii intra in faliment. Numarul de…

Radio XXII, side A, track 9: “Perfect World” by Huey Lewis and The News, #36 on The Top 88 of ’88

Mixed Tape Masterpiece

huey03Oh, Huey Lewis and The News, you guys can keep on dreamin’, because there ain’t no perfect world anyway.  And here’s the thing, Huey Lewis and The News, exactly WHAT would a perfect world look like?  Whose perfect world would it be?  I mean, I have a feeling that your idea of a perfect world and say, Ted Nugent’s, are, if you’ll pardon the pun, worlds apart.  For the world to be perfect for one person, there’s going to be someone else who’s going to be absolutely miserable in that first person’s perfect world.  And vice versa.

I’ll tell ya something, Huey Lewis and The News, as I get older, I’m starting to get where dictators and despots are coming from.  Don’t get me wrong, Huey Lewis and The News, I’m not saying I agree with them, but I get the attraction of ruling a country with an iron…

Germania – de la dezastru economic la bogatie

Acces Liber

Germania - de la dezastru economic la bogatieDupa ce Germania de Est si Germania de Vest s-au unificat intr-un singur stat pe 3 octombrie 1990, problemele au persistat in continuare pentru o perioada buna. Procesul unificarii s-a dovedit a fi o provocare economica si politica uriasa. Industriile bolnave din Est se prabusesc aproape complet, in contextul structurilor industriale competitive din Germania de Vest, iar somajul rezultat si lipsurile conduc la proteste in masa in multe orase din estul Germaniei. La aproape un an dupa unificare, statul a fost zguduit de numeroase atacuri ale radicalilor de stanga asupra strainilor si emigrantilor. Excesele au fost supravegheate cu teama atat in tara, cat si in strainatate, indeosebi din cauza precedentului fascist si xenofob din istoria Germaniei. La sfarsitul anului 1992, 100.000 de persoane au demonstrat impotriva rasismului si intolerantei.

Astazi, Germania este tara cea mai populara a Europei si are o economie puternica. Dupa succesul reunificarii, ea a pledat in…
