Fire Emergencies and TED talks

Lincoln County's website includes a new link this week.

CodeRed allows the county to instantly contact (by phone, voice or text) all registered residents (part-time, too)  based on where you live.  The site's privacy policy mentions they do not sell your information.

Lincoln County is asking anyone with property in the area (especially those who live elsewhere part of the year) to sign up with your property's physical address and a phone or an email address.  You don't have to create an account, nor a password (those are optional).

This way you can receive notice when an emergency requires evacuation or other action.

On a lighter note, May will see a mini-college of events at Ruidoso Public Library.

We kick off with an introduction to TED.com.  TED talks focus on Technology, Education, and Design.

The organization seeks out the best speakers, presenters, and presentations on diverse topics.

Videos run from 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on the speaker, topic, or event.

Three of my favorites are Hans Rosling,  Jane McGonigal, and Sugata Mitra. Do you have a favorite TED talk?  Where did you hear about it?
