Your time in Iraq makes you a threat to society: Andrew Chambers at TEDxMarionCorrectionalSalon 2013
 
09:02
Speaking from prison, Iraqi war veteran Andrew "Sarge" Chambers tells the story of how he got there. As the judge told him when he sentenced Chambers to 10 years at Marion Correctional: "Your time in Iraq makes you a threat to society." Chambers reminds us of the sacrifices that linger with soldiers -- and simply asks us to listen. Andrew "Sarge" Chambers proudly hails from Pickerington, Ohio. He served in the U.S. Army and has maintained the habit he acquired there of cursing just a bit too much. Throughout his service, Sarge was also able to maintain and hone his sense of honor and kindness, but the experience did slightly alter his sense of humor. While categorically not a morning person, when he is able to finally pry his eyes open, he always thinks to himself that he would rather be fishing. Most of his days are filled with coaching softball, Garth Brooks songs and thoughts of the family he hopes to be able to start soon. He is taking the stage to tell his story, parts of which can be seen in the documentary Operation Resurrection: The Warrior Returns. After TEDxMarionCorrectional he will work on his next unique thing. 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.

NBC's David Gregory: Just Like Iraq, Egyptians Want Democracy Less Than U.S.
 
01:54
8/15/2013 - NBC News anchor and host of Meet the Press, David Gregory, told MSNBC host Chris Jansing on Thursday that Egypt is again teaching Americans the lesson they learned in the wake of the invasion of Iraq. He said that, just as in that Middle Eastern nation, Americans cannot want democracy for Egypt more than the people of that country. RELATED: Fox's Jonathan Hunt Pays Tribute to Sky News Cameraman Killed in Egypt Previewing President Barack Obama's address on the growing unrest in Egypt, Gregory warned that there are limits to American influence. He said that there is not much that the president, or his administration, can do to stem the outbreak of violence in that country. "This is a foreign policy debate now that we've been engaged in for a decade, plus. Which is -- it goes back to the Iraq War," Gregory said. "It goes back to the future of Afghanistan." "The United States, and I think the public in large measure, has come to the conclusion that America cannot want these kinds of changes more than the countries themselves want it for themselves," he continued.

Arguing the OE, Episode 2:  Military Design, Part 1, Introduction & Design's Four Questions
 
14:04
Professional Military Education (PME) struggles to teach design well. Whether known as operational design or Army design methodology, design as a practice require several "reps" to gain proficiency. It requires groups of military professionals and Unified Action partners--with markers in hand--collaborating and arguing about how best to understand and intervene in the world. This five-part series on design is intended to help jump-start the practice of design by illustrating how real-world commanders have exercised its various elements. In this introduction, I explain the relationship between the commander, design, and detailed planning. I also describe how design revolves around the iterative confrontation with four questions: What's going on now? How do I want things to be in the future? What is the problem? How, in broad terms, will I achieve my desired state of affairs? For more information, see my article in Military Review on design at: usacac.army.mil/.../MilitaryReview_20110430_art008.pdf Or you may Google "A Practical Guide to Design: A Way to Think About It, and A Way to Do It"

Learning from Iraq: A New Model for Stability and Reconstruction Operations
 
01:07:52
Tue, 5/21/2013 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm The Middle East Institute is pleased to welcome Stuart Bowen, the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, to discuss his proposals for how best to conduct Stability and Reconstruction Operations. Stability and Reconstruction Operations, or (SROs), entail governmental efforts to rebuild crucial infrastructure, implement rule of law, and ensure security in developing countries before, during, and after armed conflict. As Mr. Bowen pointed out in his "Learning from Iraq" report issued in March 2013, the United States has no unified structure for conducting SROs. Because of that, a multitude of federal entities often duplicate efforts and work sometimes at cross purposes to each other. Both Iraq and Afghanistan have been glaring examples of money and effort gone to waste. Bowen has proposed that SROs be directed by a single entity he calls USOCO, the U.S. Office for Contingency Operations. By having this central point of command and coordination, not only can significant cost savings be achieved, but just as importantly, stabilization and reconstruction work can proceed with certainty of direction and purpose. Biographies: Stuart W. Bowen was appointed Inspector General for the Coalition Provisional Authority in January 2004, and since October 2004 has served as the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction. As the "taxpayer's watchdog" in Iraq, Mr. Bowen oversees more than $63 billion in U.S. funds, including the Iraq Relief and Reconstruction Fund, the Iraq Security Forces Fund, the Economic Support Fund, the International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement funding, and the Commander's Emergency Response Program. Mr. Bowen's oversight work has produced financial benefits to the U.S. Government in excess of $1.1 billion and has yielded 56 convictions for fraud and other crimes. Inspector General Bowen's public service career includes service to President George W. Bush as Deputy Assistant to the President, Deputy Staff Secretary, Special Assistant to the President, and Associate Counsel. Mr. Bowen is a military veteran, having served four years on active duty as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force, earning the rank of Captain and the Air Force Commendation Medal. Marvin G. Weinbaum is a scholar-in-residence at the Middle East Institute in Washington DC. He is also professor emeritus of political science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and served as analyst for Pakistan and Afghanistan in the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Intelligence and Research from 1999 to 2003. At Illinois, Dr. Weinbaum served for fifteen years as the director of the Program in South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. His research, teaching, and consultancies have focused on the issues of national security, state building, democratization, and political economy in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He is the author or editor of six books and has written more than 100 journal articles and book chapters

Paradoxes of the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq: Paul MacAlindin at TEDxKoeln
 
10:34
One day, whilst eating fish and chips in an Edinburgh pub, Paul MacAlindin came across a call for help from Zuhal Sultan in a newspaper lying on the table. This 17 year old pianist in Baghdad wanted to start a National Youth Orchestra of Iraq and needed a conductor. In the coming months of 2009, they worked tirelessly online with British Council Iraq and Musicians for Harmony between Cologne, New York and Baghdad, to produce their first summer course in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, with young musicians from across the whole country. Since then, the orchestra has survived logistical, funding, cultural and visa cliffhangers alongside enormous musical challenges to transform itself into a high profile cultural diplomat, performing in Beethovenfest in 2011, Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012 and this August in Provence, Cultural Capital of Europe. In order to realise their mission, Paul not only rehearses and conducts the orchestra, but helps them to foster the skills to create their own ensembles and teach in Iraq. Behind the scenes, he has innovated around the countless obstacles required for building a national youth orchestra in a war-torn country. This has not been done alone. Without the generosity and faith of the orchestra's Iraqi team, German Friends of NYOI, Beethovenfest, Deutsche Welle, Gürzenich Orchester, British Council, Scottish Government, Grand Theatre de Provence, Kurdistan Regional Government, numerous diplomats, civil servants and sponsors, these musicians would not be able to continue their epic journey of reconnecting each other, Iraq and the international community, through the power of music.

UK Not A Democracy: Prof. David Miller Media Lies & Propaganda Spinwatch Powerbase Lobbying
 
40:41
David Miller is Professor of Sociology at the University of Bath, co-founder of Spinwatch www.spinwatch.org and a key figure in the influential Glasgow Media Group www.glasgowmediagroup.org David contributes regularly to a wide range of mainstream and alternative media outlets. Current research interests include: the role of communication in the constitution and reproduction of power relations; critical approaches to teaching about/researching terrorism; corporate lobbying & Public Relations; spin, propaganda & the role of think tanks. Powerbase focuses on communication, spin and propaganda in party politics and in war and peace. The database contains collections of articles on British propaganda, the theory and practice of counterinsurgency, the neoconservatives, terror experts and the associated terrorism industry, which can influence public opinion and policy in the 'war on terror'. It also documents the disinformation and covert action activities of states, intelligence agencies, and their associated networks. World Television produces the fake news, but its efforts are entirely funded by the Foreign Office, which spent £340m on propaganda activities in the UK alone in 2001. A comprehensive post- 9/11 overhaul means that this figure has probably markedly increased since then. According to World Television, by November 2003 BSN "news" was being "used regularly by 14 of the 17 Middle East countries". "Over 400 stations around the world receive BSN stories," it claims. "185 are regular users of the stories, including broadcasters in Russia, Germany, Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and Australia." The diet of "news" received by viewers of the service includes an endless pageant of government ministers and other official spokespeople. Recent headlines on Iraq refer to happy news such as "Prime minister in surprise visit to Iraq" (December 22 2005) or "Iraqi ambassador upbeat on elections" (December 14 2005). Often Chatham House provides the venue for policy discussions, as in: "The psychology of terror - experts meet" (December 23 2005). Questioning the occupation is out of the question, but some criticism of US policy is possible. In an extraordinary apologia for the British occupation of Iraq in 1920, the "suggested intro" reads: "This year is not the first time an outside power has sought to construct a modern, democratic, liberal state in Iraq. Britain tried to do the same in the 1920s". The benevolence of the US and the UK is simply assumed: "Today's USled coalition, like the imperial occupiers of 80 years ago, are trying to free Iraq's government and security services from corruption and abuse." But the clumsy strategy of the US is potentially "alienating a large section of the population". So the question arises of what "useful lessons could be drawn" from the British experience. In reality the 1920 occupation led immediately to a popular revolt that was ruthlessly suppressed. A puppet monarchy was imposed, which was neither "modern" nor "democratic" but was, as argued by the historian Mark Curtis, one of the least popular in Middle Eastern history. The BSN strategy seems to be to emphasise Britain's cultural diversity. Bulletins regularly highlight ethnicminority contributions to the UK and interview leading moderate Muslims. But it is possible to hear muted criticism of Israel. One item featured "A leading Israeli academic who has questioned both the wisdom and the effectiveness of the controversial 'separation fence'." A clue to the thinking behind this lies in a 2003 report for the Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) thinktank, coauthored by its then director Mark Leonard. He advised the Foreign Office on its Public Diplomacy Review in 2002 and was later appointed to the resulting Public Diplomacy Strategy Board, which directs Foreign Office propaganda strategy. Leonard wrote in 2002: "If a message will engender distrust simply because it is coming from a foreign government then the government should hide that fact as much as possible." The FPC report suggests the British government should not be afraid of "bloodying the Americans' noses" in its propaganda messages on Israel/Palestine. They must "ensure that the differences between UK and American positions and thinking are emphasised". The point is to tackle the perception that Britain "apishly follows every American lead" so the "usefulness" of "UK support for the US" is increased. This strategy of criticising the US, in order to support it better, conforms to Blair's wider Iraq strategy. It is clear from documents leaked over the past year (such as the Downing Street memo) that the plan was to use the UN as a device for gaining legitimacy for the invasion of Iraq. All this makes a mockery of Blair's claims to progressive values. Indeed it suggests that such claims are themselves cynical propaganda. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2006/feb/15/media.television

Lesson 4 - Knowledge or obedience - The Pioneer school

Jesus did not come with a lot of theology. He did not start a Bible school. He said: Come and follow me. He called apprentices (disciples), who had to learn through his example ... If we are going to be effective in making disciples, like he calls us, we must then do it the same way as he did. We need to stop teaching so much, which just gives us knowledge, but not much to obey'.

Teaching Climate Change Denial in Schools Pushed in 3 States

"The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) — known by its critics as a "corporate bill mill" — has hit the ground running in 2013, pushing "models bills" mandating the teaching of climate change denial in public school systems. January hasn't even ended, yet ALEC has already planted its "Environmental Literacy Improvement Act," which mandates a "balanced" teaching of climate science in K-12 classrooms, in the state legislatures of Oklahoma, Colorado, and Arizona so far this year. "* ALEC wants to mandate that climate change denial be taught in public school science classes. Is this legalized religious lessons? Who is benefited by these bills, and who will suffer?

Richard Dawkins: "The Making of a Scientist" | Talks at Google
 
50:41
Ray Kurzweil welcomes Richard Dawkins to the Talks at Google program. With the 2006 publication of The God Delusion, the name Richard Dawkins became a byword for ruthless skepticism and "brilliant, impassioned, articulate, impolite" debate (San Francisco Chronicle). His first memoir offers a more personal view. His first book, The Selfish Gene, caused a seismic shift in the study of biology by proffering the gene-centered view of evolution. It was also in this book that Dawkins coined the term meme, a unit of cultural evolution, which has itself become a mainstay in contemporary culture. In An Appetite for Wonder, Richard Dawkins shares a rare view into his early life, his intellectual awakening at Oxford, and his path to writing The Selfish Gene. He paints a vivid picture of his idyllic childhood in colonial Africa, peppered with sketches of his colorful ancestors, charming parents, and the peculiarities of colonial life right after World War II. At boarding school, despite a near-religious encounter with an Elvis record, he began his career as a skeptic by refusing to kneel for prayer in chapel. Despite some inspired teaching throughout primary and secondary school, it was only when he got to Oxford that his intellectual curiosity took full flight.

AS IT IS - January 29, 2013 - VOA News Program in Special English
 
09:50
29 Jan 2013 - AS IT IS AS IT IS our new magazine show in Special English. Today and in the days to come, we will be expanding on major world events and reporting on issues that concern you. We will be talking with newsmakers, experts and VOA's own reporters to help make sense of this quickly changing world AS IT IS. Hello, I'm your host, Mario Ritter. Afghanistan continues to be a central issue for the administration of President Barack Obama. On our show today we look at some of the concerns surrounding the withdrawal of American and NATO forces from Afghanistan in 2014. Also, VOA Reporter Andre DeNesnera will join us in studio to weigh in on the subject. Withdrawing from Afghanistan will be a major foreign policy issue for President Obama during his second term. VOA's Andre DeNesnera spoke with three former United States government officials about America's longest war. Steve Ember has the story. American military forces have been in Afghanistan for more than 11 years. That is longer than the nine year Soviet occupation of Afghanistan during the 1980s. About 68,000 American troops are in Afghanistan. The international coalition plans to withdraw all fighting forces by the end of 2014. Afghan forces will then be responsible for the country's security. John Bolton served as President George W. Bush's ambassador to the United Nations in 2005 and 2006. He fears for Afghanistan's future after American troops withdraw. "The idea that we would withdraw even though the near certain outcome is a Taliban/al Qaida return to power and all the risks that that entails for the United States and other countries, I just think is a kind of blindness." Afghan and American officials are negotiating the size of the American military presence after combat troops leave in 2014. Former defense secretary William Cohen says some international troops must also stay. "There has to be a recognition on the part of many countries that it's in the world's interest to see stability remain or be brought to Afghanistan." Retired general Brent Scowcroft served as a national security adviser to two presidents. He says the United States had unrealistic expectations in Afghanistan, and in Iraq. "We cannot step in on a brief timetable and remake society. We've tried it several times now and it's just beyond our capability. So we have to realize, when we are contemplating action in another country, what is realistic for us to accomplish and what isn't." Mr. Scowcroft says Americans are tired of war. Experts say Europeans are also tired of war. And that could make it difficult to create a smaller international military force for Afghanistan after 2014. Reporting from Washington, I'm Steve Ember.

The playground refuge: "Friendly Space" for kids at Syrian refugee camp

She is one of the many children affected by the 32-month-long conflict in Syria. Another is Omar Maqsoud. He is 14. "I saw things nobody should see. I've seen war planes, missiles, machine guns, tanks. You can't imagine how scared I was," said Omar. Rojda described what happened when she left the Syrian capital: "I was at school when the building was attacked. My mum came to pick me up and hide me from the government forces." "We got used to the war. We could sleep even through the sound of gunfire and helicopters," added Omar. Rojda and Omar arrived with their respective families at Domiz about seven months ago. Domiz is a Syrian refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan, the largest camp in the whole of Iraq. Neither of the children wanted to leave Syria, but violence, fear and poverty finally forced them to cross the border into Iraqi Kurdistan. == (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/fr_FR/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Publication de Backpack Reports. == "I left Damascus, but, at first, my parents and relatives stayed. Sometimes I felt very sad because they were there and I was somewhere else. I wondered why they didn't come for me," said Rojda. "There must have been a good reason, and it was because of the house that we'd been building for years," she explained. Breaking down in tears, Rodja's mother Hadya Hamko recalled how painful it was to leave the family home. "We worked for nine years to save money to buy our house in Damascus. We only stayed in our home for eight days, then the area was bombarded and we had to leave". Around 60,000 people live at Domiz refugee camp. Around half are children. Omar and Rojda, like all the other kids, bear the scars of war and they are looking for some semblance of a normal life." Both children have missed over a year of school and they did not make it into the classroom this year because the three schools in the camp are already overcrowded. Instead, they found their way to the Youth Friendly Space and the Child Friendly Space - two initiatives opened in April by the French non-governmental organisation ACTED. "We use many different methods when dealing with traumatised children. The most basic is concentrating and focusing on the positive things and traits that the child has, and building on them so that he or she is able to cope with the life here and move forward," said Ibrahim Khalil, a Syrian refugee who works for ACTED. Like lots of other children at Domiz, Omar has had trauma assessment to find out about his war experiences and the impact they have had on him. At the Youth Friendly Space, he can take part in supervised cultural and therapeutic activities if he needs to. "This is a Kurdish lesson, which is very important to me because it's my mother tongue and learning it was forbidden in Syria," said Omar. Radjo explained why she comes to the Child Friendly Space: "We play, we take part in drama, they tell us stories. It's nice because we can forget and we don't have to think a lot". EU Nobel Peace Prize funds have been given to these two centres as part of the initiative EU Children of Peace that helps kids affected by conflicts. The Child Friendly Space and Youth Friendly Space are meant for up to 250 children a week. They are used by over 1,000, but there are 30,000 kids at the camp and the harsh conditions at Domiz make normal child development very hard. "I think if the situation carries on for a long time, children in the camp won't be able to return a normal life," said ACTED worker Ibrahim. "Although children are quite resilient, they will not be able to maintain this resilience if they continue to live in a camp situation," he added.

International Relations 101 (#42): Leader Retirement
 
07:05
http://gametheory101.com/courses/international-relations-101/ What does an average democratic leader's retirement look like? What about the average non-democratic leader's retirement? The Iraq War provides a good example. Things went horribly wrong for both George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein, yet Bush gets to live a cushy retirement while Hussein was hanged. In general, non-democratic leaders are more likely to be jailed, exiled, or killed post-tenure than their democratic counterparts. In the next lecture, we will discuss how this affects non-democratic leaders' incentives to initiate conflict. For the statistics, see here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/231928003_Regime_Type_the_Fate_of_Leaders_and_War

I found it was a very beneficial experience for me to communicate with the students from Afghanistan, Iraq, Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. This DHH program offers the opportunity for international Deaf people to learn ASL, to improve their English literacy and to begin career development.

Arguing the OE, Episode 16:  The Folly of "Unfamiliar Problems"
 
09:51
In this episode, I challenge a distinction that is made in classroom instruction and within Army doctrine. I refer to the distinction between familiar problems on the one hand and unfamiliar problems on the other. This distinction matters to those who employ insofar as they believe--incorrectly, I argue--that troop-leading procedures (TLP) and the military decision making process (MDMP) are well-suited to explore familiar problems whereas the Army Design Methodology (ADM) is only really necessary for unfamiliar problems. Of course, this assessment of ADM is a fundamental failure to see how this planning method is really a way (a bundle of practices, really) to structure a commander's understanding, visualization, and description, which a commander better be doing regardless of the type of operation he or she is given. The practices that compose ADM (asking four big questions; cultivating collaboration, dialogue, and argument; systems thinking; perspective-taking; and creating working and presentation diagrams) are powerful in all operations. Moreover, it is a sign of hubris to believe one has the ability to know when one is about to embark on a familiar problem or an unfamiliar problem. It is a better, more humble leadership style to appreciate that all significant military problems (including variations of the attack, defense, and movement to contact as well as stability operations and support to civilian authorities) are to some degree unfamiliar. Each operation contains its own bundle or confluence of factors and dynamics that are appearing in the world for the first time. We, as military leaders in charge of troopers and resources, can never afford to turn off our brains. It follows that a thorough understanding of factors, dynamics, and context matters.....and ADM helps us take a cut at this understanding. In this episode, I point to the example of Colonel Perkins during the Thunder Run(s) in Baghdad, 2003. Here is a tactical-level leader not simply thinking in terms of military tasks. He deliberately thought through (understanding, visualization, and description) how his tactical actions would contribute to strategic ends. He exemplified mission command by exercising initiative at his level. It is precisely this sort of approach to leadership and planning that the ADM cultivates. In the episode above, I paraphrase General Martin Dempsey, CJCS, on the link between military power and intended outcomes. The exact quotation is: "The application of force rarely produced, in fact, maybe never produces the outcomes we seek." (quoted in the Washington Post, "Within Military, Deep Doubts about a Strike on Syria," Ernesto Londono, Thursday, August 29, 2013; the articles quotes Dempsey from an interview he conducted with ABC News).

Arguing the OE, Episode 11:  Should We Use the DIME Framework to Label Our Lines of Effort?
 
06:57
A common practice in Lewis and Clark is for students to label their lines of effort in terms of the instruments of national power; i.e., the diplomatic, informational, military, and economic "means" that we have to accomplish our national-security objectives. I argue, consistently with joint doctrine, that this practice is really not a good idea. Why? I suggest that labeling lines of effort in terms of DIME contributes to "siloing" or "stove-piping" our means or instruments when we should be trying to facilitate their integration. The push in the profession of arms has been toward "interagency," "comprehensive approach," "civil-military," and "Unified Action." Some scholars and troopers are even thinking about "whole of society." Hence, should we not think of each line of effort as a broad "way" to integrate the various "means" at our disposal to increase "Unified Action"?

Netanyahu says Israel is ready. Our finger...is on the trigger." Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the evidence "screaming at us is real, that chemical weapons were used in Syria. The Americans are incapable of starting a new war in the region, because of their lacking economic capabilities and their lack of morale," said Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of the IRAN ISLAMIC Republican Guards' elite Basij force. (Washington, D.C.) — USA credible reports of a chemical weapons massacre in Syria. But Russia is warning the West not to intervene against its ally, especially with U.N. authorization, and especially because Moscow says their is "no proof" chemical weapons were really used. What's more, Syria and Iran are directly threatening to retaliate against Israel with "strategic" weapons.. War crimes and crimes against humanity — indeed, constituting a form of genocide -- have been carried out in Syria on a large scale and before the eyes of the world," the analyst adds. "The lessons of the Second World War have not been learned. Even in the era of modern communications, with daily documentation of the atrocities, genocide can occur under conditions where the international system is paralyzed by interests and rivalries between the powers. The international impotence in the face of these events weakens deterrence against the use of nonconventional weapons and has implications in the Iranian context as Tehran continues on its determined march toward nuclear weapons." Western military assets are rapidly being moved into place. Specific target maps are being refined. What appears to being contemplated by the Pentagon are limited airstrikes and cruise missile strikes against sites important to the Assad regime, not specifically to bring down the regime but to punish it for using weapons of mass destruction and to warn the Syrian government never to use WMD again. "The Defense Department has responsibility to provide the president with options for all contingencies, and that requires positioning our forces, positioning our assets to be able to carry out different options, whatever options the president might choose," said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, according to AP and ABC News. To be assured that when the President of the United States draws a "red line" (as President Obama did in Syria on chemical weapons) that the President will keep his word. U.N. chemical weapons inspectors tried to gather further evidence in Damascus today but were shot at by snipers and had to retreat. Later, they reportedly were able to safely make it back to the site of the one of the alleged toxic gas attacks to do research. "In France, Doctors Without Borders said three hospitals it supports in the eastern Damascus region reported receiving roughly 3,600 patients with 'neurotoxic symptoms' over less than three hours on Wednesday morning, when the attack in the eastern Ghouta area took place," reported a separate AP story. "Of those, 355 died, the Paris-based group said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday that its estimated death toll from the alleged chemical attack had reached 322, including 54 children, 82 women and dozens of fighters. It said the dead included 16 people who have not been identified." A senior Syrian official Muftah concluded with a warning that "If the US or Israel make the mistake of taking advantage of the chemical issue... the region will go up in flames... that will affect security not only in the region but across the world." His words were echoed by Iranian officials.

Off Balance On Purpose: The Future of Engagement and Work-Life Balance: Dan Thurmon at TEDxPSU
 
18:08
Life patterns are constantly changing and evolving. In his TED Talk, Dan Thurmon explores how those patterns can be transcended by living off balance on purpose. Dan Thurmon is the author of two books, a renowned speaker, and a recognized expert in delivering peak performances -- on stage and in the workplace. As president of Motivation Works, Inc., he has worked with hundreds of clients and delivered thousands of presentations worldwide. Dan helps organizations and individuals implement actions plans and move confidently through transitions. He began his performance career at eleven years old, crafting a one-man-show incorporating comedy, juggling and acrobatics. This enabled him to, at a very early age, develop a strong work ethic and learn fundamental lessons about performance excellence. Dan graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Marketing and Management. He has also extensively studied Personal Development and developed a unique methodology he teaches to audiences and clients. A recent inductee to the prestigious "Speakers Hall of Fame," Dan Thurmon delivers experiences that go beyond motivation, teaching concepts and skills in a highly engaging and entertaining manner. He incorporates his lifelong performance skills to create high impact events. His programs have educated and uplifted Fortune 500 companies, young audiences, and even the troops on the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq. Dan's philosophy can be summarized by the title of his book, Off Balance On Purpose. He believes that we will never achieve "perfect balance" and should, instead, learn to embrace uncertainty and initiate positive changes that lead to growth. Also, we should go beyond the pursuit of "success" and enhance our life experiences and professional endeavors with purposeful, positive contributions.
