What can you do when the wheels of justice don't turn fast enough? Or when they don't turn at all? Vivek Maru is working to transform the relationship between people and law, turning law from an abstraction or threat into something that everyone can understand, use and shape. Instead of relying solely on lawyers, Maru started a global network of community paralegals, or barefoot lawyers, who serve in their own communities and break the law down into simple terms to help people find solutions.

What does it mean to be beautiful? | Esther Honig | TEDxVancouver

In a project titled Before and After, Esther Honig sparked a global conversation about beauty ideals. The results were both positive and negative, and may have left more questions than it answered. In the spring of 2014, journalist Esther Honig embarked on an unconventional social experiment. She sent her image to 50 strangers around the world and asked that they use Photoshop to "make her beautiful." The results sparked a worldwide conversation around beauty ideals and globalization before taking an unexpected twist. It wasn't long before her face had become a public domain, highjacked by marketers. In order to take back the narrative surrounding her project and her identity, she had to relinquish ownership, confront the criticisms and allow her project to take on a life of its own.

And is it ethical? Madeline Lancaster shares how to make a brain in a lab. Lesson by Madeline Lancaster, animation by Adam Wells.
