Wendy Troxel

Sleepy Teens – A Public Health Epidemic

Sleep deprivation – What most parents, teachers, and school administrators think of as just part of being a teenager, Rand Corporation sleep scientist Wendy Troxel labels loss of teen sleep a public health epidemic. Not a function of being social or participating in social media, Wendy believes sleep loss is mostly due to school start times – a matter of public policy.

Eduardo Briceño

When Performing Gets in the Way of Improving

Working hard but not improving? Looking for more innovative solutions and ideas? You are not alone. Eduardo explains how in life we move between the performing zone and the learning zone, and unless we find a way to successfully spend time in both zones, we compromise improvement and innovation.

Amy Alkon

The Surprising Self-Interest in Being Kind to Strangers

Most people would agree that being kind is the right thing to do, but few would evangelize that being kind to strangers is actually good for you. In her poignant and humorous talk, Amy shares life experiences and scientific research to make the world a kinder place and transform us from a society of strangers to a community of co-humans.
