After having gotten hooked on TED Talks on the Internet, I was thrilled to hear TEDx Dublin 2014 was being held in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on the 13th September. For those not familiar with TED Talks, TED is a nonprofit devoted to ‘ideas worth spreading’, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.

TEDx are independently organised local events that happen all around the world. TEDx Dublin is organised by the Science Gallery at Trinity College and 2014 was their eighth such event. It was sold-out weeks before and the theatre was packed with around 2,000 people.

The event included 13 speakers over six hours. During the day, we heard about life on Mars, the power of solar disinfection, the social impact of language, the encouragement of women in politics, designers helping fix everyday problems to make a difference, the Irish prison service, homophobia, the effect people are having on our environment, the change in libraries as well as the invasion of jellyfish!

My favourite speakers were David Puttman, Kevin Gildea and John Lonergan. Lord David Puttman, film producer and public policymaker, challenged us to get angry about climate change and realise we all have a duty of care to the next generation. Kevin Gildea, award winning writer, comedian, and actor, made us laugh about the language of nothing. John Lonergan, the retired Governor of Mountjoy Prison, got the biggest standing ovation of the day as he spoke about the Irish Prison Service and the poverty trap. The day was truly inspirational and enjoyable as well as being educational. It made us question the landscape of the future.

We’ll shine like diamonds in the rough

Love this song from Old Man Canyon hailing from Vancouver in Canada. They remind me so much of ‘Of Monsters and Men’. This song is taken from the EP Phantoms & Friends. Enjoy!

Don’t you just love Autumn and going to the movies? There are some excellent books being made into movies and coming to a cinema near you…some of the ones I’m dying to see as I loved the books include:

Great dance tune from Steve Angello featuring Dougy from The Temper Trap. Enjoy!

All the right junk in all the right places

A really catchy tune from Meghan Trainor with a great message about loving your body – every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top. And I love the pastel coloured video with some fine booty shaking. Enjoy!
