Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.

The Secret Lives of Wild Animals: Nick Whitney at TEDxSarasota



Published on Jan 13, 2013



Nick Whitney explains research he has been involved with at Mote Marine Laboratory in studying the behavior of wild animals using technology such as the accelerometers found in many smartphones. 

Nick applies these tags to sharks, leaping sturgeon, invasive Burmese pythons, and other species to find out what these animals are up to and why it matters. 

Part of TEDxSarasota's inaugural conference held on 12/12/12 with the theme "Creativity Matters" at the Historic Asolo Theatre in Sarasota, Florida.

ABOUT TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
