#TEDTalkTuesday: Inspiration Porn and the Objectification of Disability: Stella Young

Its a Tuesday so it must be time for another TED Talk. Now, don't be alarmed (or excited) by the word 'porn" in the title of this post. This post is definitely not about sex.

Rolling out My New Channel

The roll out of my new youtube channel Essceejulies has been a little rough. A couple of my videos were having audio problems so I had to delete them and then repost them.

New Youtube Channel | Essceejulies

Oh wow a blog post that isn't a TED Talk. Could this mean this blog will start being a blog again? One way I'm attempting to get back into the groove is by incorporating my interest in making videos.

If you are a regular reader of my blog this isn't news but I haven't discussed it much on my youtube channel.

#TEDTalkTuesday Chris Downey: Design with the blind in mind

Haven't done a TED Talk Tuesday in a while but I'm back with a good one. Today (December 3rd) is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This year's theme is "Break Barriers, Open Doors: for an inclusive society and development for all”. I found this great talk that I feel embodies this year's theme perfectly.
