Re: “TEDx Charleston: Maybe we can change the world

Connelly, thanks for your write-up on the 2016 TED X Charleston event. I could not have described the event better myself. TED X Charleston 2016 was inspirational, a real eye opener that challenged me to drink in life with eyes wide open to opportunities for sharing my God-given gifts in new, unexplored way. One action I have already committed to is participating as a TED X Charleston volunteer for 2017. Another is volunteering twice a week with Reading Partners South Carolina to help a struggling student learn to read with better understanding and proficiency.

Little known to the public are the ways that TED X Charleston gets involved before, during with after the day of the event. TED's commitment of "inclusion" extends beyond socio-economic and racial diversity to include geography, gender, and industry. Some of the events attended by TED X volunteers and friends this year included a "Women in Technology" meeting, as well as a resource/job fair hosted by the Housing Authority. All 10 Title One schools in the area were invited to the TED X Charleston Dress Rehearsal. Nine schools accepted the invitation. Two other area schools asked if they could attend. I am happy to report that a total of 11 schools participated and between 415-450 students attended.

Re: “TEDx Charleston: Maybe we can change the world

Ted Talks do a great job of preaching to the choir about how we need social revolution. What good have any of them actually done? This is another mostly white middle-to-upper class circle jerk where so-called progressives get to feel good about themselves and pat themselves on the back despite not actually doing anything to make the world better. "At $65 a pop" the cost of admission doesn't really speak to the inclusiveness that these people pretend they care about.

Re: “MOJA R&B concert scheduled for Sat. Oct. 1 has been canceled

I looked forward to attending this event each year. Over the past few years this event has been plaqued with problems. I have learned not schedule my vacation around this event. Poor ticket sales could have been the results of changes of the concert date from 10/8 to 10/1, securing a decent old skool artist, and late planning. Who wants to purchase tickets to an event w/o knowing who the artist is going to be. SO SAD. SO VERY SAD.

Re: “The Price is Right is coming to North Charleston

Having gone before, if you're curious to the format of the game here, the traveling show runs a little differently. Just so you know it is not a full blown version of what's on tv. They've created a more digitalized version. It's still plenty fun and they call a lot of people down to give lots of people a taste but just don't expect what you see on tv.

Relevant and insightful on so many levels and leads to the most significant ritual of all--Who are you? What do you embody? How do you manifest your dignity as a human being? How do you grow beyond and determine how the others see you? Can't wait to see the exhibit,

The Warhol of his time. High-praise indeed

Oh by the way I'm basically offering a $1,000 dollar visa gift card raffle to anyone who even glances at my landing page (http://one-life-studio.launchrock.com) plus I'm donating to 2 hospitals

Good day to you! Learning to be generous with others even as I strive for my own happiness

Well referring to the one on my wall, they are not all Caucasian on the current calendar. Maybe you should have bought one instead of complaining ImFromHere.
