Ole Miss Seeking Next TEDxUM Speaker, Application Deadline Nearing

TED 1The University of Mississippi is accepting nominations for a guest speaker at the next TEDxUM Talk on January 28, 2017.

The deadline to submit your application for the TEDxUM talk is Monday, April 18. The TEDxUM Talk is an independently organized event at Ole Miss.

TED, a nonprofit organization started in 1984, is devoted to spreading ideas around the world, according to its website. Such ideas began with entertainment, technology and design. Over the years, over 100 different topics have come across to listeners of the TED Talks, as it is commonly known.

“TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world,” TED.com states. “We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.”

A TED Talk lasts for about 9 to 18 minutes, and cover a wide range of topics such as the following: life, media, health, religion, astronomy, animals, emotions and music to name a few. A complete list of topics can be found at TED.com.

“We seek new, innovative, interesting, compelling ideas that will change the world for the better,” the TEDxUM nomination form states.

According to Ole Miss, the next TEDxUM talk should be “creative/innovative, inspirational ideas appealing to the broadest possible audience and have a specific UM/Mississippi tie-in.”

The TEDxUM 2017 planning committee are Lizzy Wicks (organizer) and Dr. Marvin King (co-organizer). Dr. King and Wicks lead a 30-person team comprised of mostly students, faculty and staff that will select the speakers and organize TEDxUM 2017.

  2. A topic that needs to be discussed, is the number of people opting for gastric weight loss surgery in MS. Six family members from one MS family, all had gastric sleeve surgery, recently. Seemingly, people assume life after gastric weight loss surgery, is without consequences. But this is not the case. Losing the ability to eat two or three bites of food per meal after gastric sleeve surgery is “surgical starvation”. Three of the six have had additional surgeries and hospitalizations since gastric sleeve. They all appear to be wasting away. The State of Mississippi is paying for weight loss surgery in an effort to prevent obesity related disease cost to the state. But State funding for programs overseen by nutritionists, wellness nurses and health coaches would be a healthier approach.
