    In this episode of Speed Daemons, host Derek Mead immerses himself in the underground culture of Los Angeles street racing. Taking an unexpected approach to this subject, we focus less on the legality of this LA pastime and more on the craftsmanship and inventiveness of how they build their cars. Taking a wider look, we use this subculture to understand how the urban landscape of Los Angeles created an environment ripe for a dystopian-like nightlife, where its streets are being repurposed for racing Frankenstein cars at speeds over 100 miles an hour.

    If you could do one thing - the most important thing - to influence the life of a young child, what would that be (it’s likely not what you first bring to mind)? We want to improve the wellbeing of children - our own, in our community, and in the world, so thinking globally about this question is vital. Tom Weisner is an emeritus professor of anthropology and psychiatry at UCLA. He studies and teaches about culture and human development; families and children at risk; and evidence-informed policies to improve the lives of children and families. He has done research in Kenya on the effects on children and parents of rural-urban migration; in Delhi, India on families and children with autism; supports for working poor families in Wisconsin; families with children with disabilities in Los ...

Top 10 of the best jobs in the world. People making a living off fun and some unusual work! Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: david.f@valnetinc.com Description: The popular identifiers associated with your typical, every day jobs are rather hum drum in nature. Get up, get ready for work, sit in traffic, arrive at your desk at 9:00am, lunch break at noon, boring meeting, toil in front of a computer screen until 5:00pm, sit in traffic en route home, repeat. The nine-to-five desk job work day isn’t for everyone, though. Some of us thrive on the unconventional – early mornings or late evenings, business travel, working from home and/or tele-commuting, or some combination of all of the above. When you step out of the standard structure of a place of employment, you open yourself up to a wide assortment of new opportunities, some that you may not have even known exist. The workplace often carries a negative connotation as a drab, uninspiring environment, but many people in the workforce actually quite enjoy their jobs. Many have, after all, spent time and money on the education and training needed to prepare themselves for the career path they’ve chosen. Now, they enjoy rich, rewarding opportunities to engage in and tackle the challenges involved in their field of work, all the while interacting and working with like-minded colleagues who also boast a specialized focus within that particular field. Sure, some jobs may be mind-numbing, menial and utterly passion-less, but others can often bring fulfillment and offer value. But they aren’t these jobs, though. Beyond the realm of standard, common career paths lie an alternate series of careers that could only be considered dream jobs if anyone had actually dared to dream about them. Even the high school guidance counselor that preached about everyone finding something they enjoyed doing probably didn’t envision some of these paid work positions being achievable. Some of the best jobs in the world are more commonplace than others, but most demand some uniquely specialized training and the type of drive and creativity that makes you the ideal fit for a role coveted by many. Some of these jobs went about a hiring process with full awareness of their own highly desirable nature, engineering an internet-driven contest as a means of selecting one supremely qualified candidate. Others have drawn broad attention and curiosity, typically among those rueful for having not caught word of the position earlier, based on the job’s unique nature and inherent appeal in the vein of, “you can get paid for that??” These roles don’t always pay a lot – but some of them do – and instead offer the type of life-changing experiences and impossibly fun work environments to make for an amazing employment experience. When you navigate through this list of the very best jobs in the world, keep in mind that some lucky guy or gal actually does these things for a living. From plying their trade in an exotic locale to earning wide renown without encountering the drawbacks of fame to taking part in activities that the rest of us poor souls consider hobbies, these employees probably aren’t in a hurry to look ahead to retirement. We’ve scoured the world to find 10 of the best jobs, some of which you probably didn’t know existed.

This is the VOA Special English Health Report from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish One of the largest health studies ever done in the United States will look at environmental influences on children. The study will examine the many environmental and genetic factors that affect the health of children and the adults they become. Dr. Steven Hirshfeld at the National Institutes of Health is the study director. Test projects have already begun, and he says the main part of the National Children's Study will begin next year. "Our goal is to understand how you can get the healthiest, most robust child to develop into a healthy and contributing member of adult society." Researchers want to study one hundred thousand children across America. The study will collect information from before they are born until they are twenty-one years old. There are seven centers around the country where parents can join the study. For example, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, with study four thousand children in the Los Angeles area. They also plan to study one thousand children in a rural area. The aim is to see what effect pesticides used on nearby farms might have on the children's health. Dr. Michael Lu is one of the lead investigators at UCLA. He says, "We're examining a number of very important child conditions such as asthma and autism, pre-term birth and birth defects, obesity and diabetes and various behavioral and learning problems." The researchers will also study mental health disorders. Dr. Liu says, "I think this study has the potential to change the way we look at childhood health and development." The goal of the National Children's Study is to create a database that researchers around the world can use. Dr. Hirshfeld, the study director, says this information could help solve some unanswered questions. "We have knowledge gaps in many of the most important factors that influence not only the health and well-being and development of children, but that begin the foundations of what could turn into chronic conditions for adults." Findings from the study will be released as they become available. The information could lead to new policies and changes in existing laws on child health and the environment. The hope is that children can live healthier lives and grow into healthier adults.For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Subscribe to MOTHERBOARD: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-To-MOTHERBOARD In this episode of Sound Builders, we went to Los Angeles, to meet with Mileece. She's a sonic artist and environmental designer who's developed the technology to give silent seedlings a portal to their own sonic expression. Channeling a plant's sentience into an instrument is no obvious feat. Mileece's background as an audiophile and programmer dovetailed to turn a garden into an organic medium for music. She pulls this off by attaching electrodes to leafy limbs, which conduct the bio-electric emissions coming off living plants. The micro-voltage then gets sucked into her self-authored software, turning data into ambient melodies and harmonic frequencies. It's simply not enough for these green little squirts to just spit out noise. All this generative organic electronic music must sound beautiful, too. As a renewable energy ambassador, Mileece's larger goal behind her plant music is to enhance our relationship with nature. And if plant music can have a pleasing aesthetic articulation then hopefully we all can give a greater damn about our environment. While some may see the paradox in an organic medium generating electronic music, Mileece does not. She sees this as a symbiotic relationship, a vital one, and one that hints to a larger relationship she's been trying to unify, which is that between humans and nature.

If you could do one thing - the most important thing - to influence the life of a young child, what would that be (it’s likely not what you first bring to mind)? We want to improve the wellbeing of children - our own, in our community, and in the world, so thinking globally about this question is vital. Tom Weisner is an emeritus professor of anthropology and psychiatry at UCLA. He studies and teaches about culture and human development; families and children at risk; and evidence-informed policies to improve the lives of children and families. He has done research in Kenya on the effects on children and parents of rural-urban migration; in Delhi, India on families and children with autism; supports for working poor families in Wisconsin; families with children with disabilities in Los Angeles; hippie and countercultural families and children in California; sibling caretaking and education in Hawaii; non-parental and sibling caretaking around the world; and gratitude and school achievement among Latino adolescents and families in Los Angeles. He has served on the Board of the NGO ChildFund International. He went to Reed College (BA) and Harvard (PhD). He is married to Susan Meade Weisner, and has two sons and four beautiful grandchildren. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
