Ashkin Facebook Site Adds "Tuesdays with TED" as Regular Feature

BLOOMINGTON, IN — Stephen Ashkin, President of The Ashkin Group, announces his company will begin posting TED talks each Tuesday on its  Facebook site.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. It is a non-profit organization started in 1984 that allows thought leaders in a variety of industries to share their often provocative views.
The new Ashkin Facebook feature, called "Tuesdays with TED," will include talks that specifically address Green, environmental, and sustainability issues.
 TED talks have become quite famous in recent years. Presenters have included Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who shared her views regarding why the world needs more female leaders, and Twitter cofounder Evan Williams, who discussed the secret power of listening to users to drive company improvement.
"The TED slogan-'Ideas Worth Spreading-inspired me to post TED videos on our Facebook site," says Ashkin. "Some of the ideas TED presenters have discussed regarding environmental issues have been truly exceptional."
The first TED talk presented on the Ashkin Facebook site was given by Jonathan Foley, Director of the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota.
Foley presents a rather sobering discussion exploring the process by which skyrocketing demand for food has made agriculture the largest driver of climate change around the world.
"These are not all going to be this serious," adds Ashkin. "In fact, many of the videos we have cued are actually quite funny and uplifting. Our goal with this feature, just like the goal of TED itself, is to share with our Facebook fans ideas we believe are worth spreading."
