Social Media : Writing On The Wall

BY DELWIN KEASBERRY
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 01, 2014

Through social media, we are more connected and informed than ever before. Delwin Keasberry, a social media personality, points out the imbalance which exist in the face of ‘hot topics’ between those few with quick and assured opinions. So strong are their voices that they drown out the moderators, and the crowd. On the other hand, there are those who remain silent and wait for the storm to blow over. Though some of us choose to stand apart, we are not unaffected by these kinds of situations. Are we doomed to intemperate viewpoints dominating the world of social media? Can we imagine being part of the movement that is willing to push the gap between these two extremes and grow into better adjusted social networking community?

Stronger than the Prognosis 

BY HEATHER LAPTALO
@ VOL 25 ON MAR 27, 2018

This presentation is about accomplishing great physical feats after being told you never would.

Heather Laptalo is addicted to high altitudes, open vistas and heart-pounding sufferfests that challenge her physically and mentally.  The only time she's not running is when she's skiing or climbing a mountain.  She wasn't always like this.  She grew up wearing back braces and had a spinal fusion and total reconstructive back surgery, all before the age of 20 to stop her scoliosis and kyphosis from getting worse.  85% of her spine is fused and she's missing 40% of her lung capacity, leaving her 20% physically disabled.  She defied all the odds and proven countless doctors wrong.  She's #strongerthantheprognosis
