Want to get great at something? Get a coach | Atul Gawande

0
How do we improve in the face of complexity? Atul Gawande has studied this question with a surgeon’s precision. He shares what he’s found to be the key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instill positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again. “It’s not how good you are now; it’s how good you’re going to be that really matters,” Gawande says.

Ben Saunders’ solo crossing of Antarctica, and more news from TED speakers

0

As usual, the TED community has lots of news to share this week. Below, some highlights.

A solo crossing of Antarctica. With chilling detail, Ben Saunders documents his journey across Antarctica as he attempts to complete the first successful solo, unsupported and unassisted crossing. The journey is a way of honoring his friend Henry Worsley, who died attempting a similar crossing last year. While being attacked by intense winds, Saunders writes of his experiences trekking through the hills, the cold, and the ice, the weight he carries, and even the moments he’s missing, as he wishes his dear friends a jolly and fun wedding day back home. (Watch Saunders’ TED Talk)

The dark side of AI. A chilling new video, “Slaughterbots,” gives viewers a glimpse into a dystopian future where people can be targeted and killed by strangers using autonomous weapons simply for having dissenting opinions. This viral video was the brainchild of TED speaker Stuart Russell and a coalition of AI researchers and advocacy organizations. The video warns viewers that while AI has the potential to solve many of our problems, the dangers of AI weapons must be addressed first. “We have an opportunity to prevent the future you just saw,” Stuart states at the end of the video, “but the window to act is closing fast.” (Watch Russell’s TED Talk)

Corruption investigators in paradise. Charmian Gooch and her colleagues at Global Witness have been poring over the Paradise Papers, a cache of 13.4 million files released by the the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that detail the secret world of offshore financial deals. With the 2014 TED Prize, Gooch wished to end anonymously owned companies, and the Paradise Papers show how this business structure can be used to nefarious end. Check out Global Witness’ report on how the commodities company Glencore appears to have funneled $45 million to a notorious billionaire middleman in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to help them negotiate mining rights. And their look at how a US-based bank helped one of Russia’s richest oligarchs register a private jet, despite his company being on US sanctions lists. (Watch Gooch’s TED Talk)

A metric for measuring corporate vitality. Martin Reeves, director of the Henderson Institute at BCG, and his colleagues have taken his idea that strategies need strategies and expanded it into the creation of the Fortune Future 50, a categorization of companies based on more than financial data. Companies are divided into “leaders” and “challengers,” with the former having a market capitalization over $20 billion as of fiscal year 2016 and the latter including startups with a market capitalization below $20 billion. However, instead of focusing on rear-view analytics, BCG’s assessment uses artificial intelligence and natural language processing to review a company’s vitality, or their “capacity to explore new options, renew strategy, and grow sustainably,” according to a publication by Reeves and his collaborators. Since only 7% of companies that are market-share leaders are also profit leaders, the analysis can provide companies with a new metric to judge progress. (Watch Reeves’ TED Talk)

The boy who harnessed the wind — and the silver screen. William Kamkwamba’s story will soon reach the big screen via the upcoming film The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Kamkwamba built a windmill that powered his home in Malawi with no formal education. He snuck into a library, deciphered physics on his own, and trusted his intuition that he had an idea he could execute. His determination ultimately saved his family from a deadly famine.

    Shaking Strength *
    MMI II (Very weak shaking) ?

    People :
    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?

    People :
    Felt indoors; hanging objects may swing, vibration similar to passing of light trucks, duration may be estimated, may not be recognized as an earthquake.
    MMI IV (Light shaking) ?

    People :
    Generally noticed indoors but not outside. Light sleepers may be awakened. Vibration may be likened to the passing of heavy traffic, or to the jolt of a heavy object falling or striking the building.
    Fittings :
    Doors and windows rattle. Glassware and crockery rattle. Liquids in open vessels may be slightly disturbed. Standing motorcars may rock.
    Structures :
    Walls and frames of buildings, and partitions and suspended ceilings in commercial buildings, may be heard to creak.
    MMI V (Moderate shaking) ?

    People :
    Generally felt outside, and by almost everyone indoors. Most sleepers awakened. A few people alarmed.
    Fittings :
    Small unstable objects are displaced or upset. Some glassware and crockery may be broken. Hanging pictures knock against the wall. Open doors may swing. Cupboard doors secured by magnetic catches may open. Pendulum clocks stop, start, or change rate.
    Structures :
    Some large display windows cracked. A few earthenware toilet fixtures cracked.
    MMI VI (Strong shaking) ?

    People
    Felt by all. People and animals alarmed. Many run outside. Difficulty experienced in walking steadily.
    Fittings :
    Objects fall from shelves. Pictures fall from walls. Some furniture moved on smooth floors, some unsecured free-standing fireplaces moved. Glassware and crockery broken. Very unstable furniture overturned. Small church and school bells ring. Appliances move on bench or table tops. Filing cabinets or “easy glide” drawers may open (or shut).
    Structures :
    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?

    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?

    People
    Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected.

    Structures :
    Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down.

    Environment :
    Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?

    Structures
    Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames.

    Environment :
    Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

    Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 18.55.47

    Update 17:53 UTC: GDACS has no Tsunami report (Due to the depth and the limited Magnitude the probability of a tsunami is very limited)

    Update 17:48 UTC: BMKG has called a tsunami warning for the Indonesian coast.

    Donate 424x170

    Update 17:38 UTC: The map below shows the tectonics of this area. Although made for a Sumatran earthquake, the picture is the same for this earthquake. At the same time the map shows why the depth of the earthquake is so deep. The Indo-Australian plate dives below the Eurasian plate and is locked in some areas. Due to the movement of the Indo-Australian plate, the stress increases gradually until its gets too big and breaks (earthquake). The movement of the plate is approx. 7 cm PER YEAR and is the reason that Indonesia has frequent massive earthquakes.

    Update 17:33 UTC: Local BMKG agency reports a M6.9 at 107 km depth

    Update 17:28 UTC: Shaking map with possible related damage from the natural disaster specialists at CATnews (Risklayer – CEDIM), Karlsruhe, Germany. Map generated by Andreas Schäfer.

    Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 18.27.41

    Update 17:16 UTC: Due to the depth and the elevated Magnitude the shaking will be felt in a very wide radius of 1000+ km

    Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 18.55.05

    Update 17:14 UTC: USGS Shaking map gives a max. moderate shaking for a wide area (norm for deep earthquakes)

    Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 18.14.02

    Update 17:12 UTC: Focal Mechanism for this earthquake

    Update 17:10 UTC: USGS reports now a M6.5 Magnitude at a depth of 92 km BUT with an epicenter right below the coast

    Screen Shot 2017-12-15 at 18.09.14

    Update 17:03 UTC: Most shaking values we receive from Java are mentioning moderate to strong shaking but this can be very strong shaking nearer to the epicenter

    Update 17:01 UTC: First indications did report M7.3 but later ones are now reporting M6.7

    erdonlong

    Update 17:00 UTC:  People along the Java coast can best auto-evacuate to higher ground

    Update 16:57 UTC: Based on the present earthquake parameters (Magnitude, Depth, Population, etc) and our experience with earthquake damage impact, earthquake-report.com calls this earthquake extremely dangerous and expects injuries and serious damage

    Shaking Strength *
    MMI II (Very weak shaking) ?

    People :
    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?

    People :
    Felt indoors; hanging objects may swing, vibration similar to passing of light trucks, duration may be estimated, may not be recognized as an earthquake.
    MMI IV (Light shaking) ?

    People :
    Generally noticed indoors but not outside. Light sleepers may be awakened. Vibration may be likened to the passing of heavy traffic, or to the jolt of a heavy object falling or striking the building.
    Fittings :
    Doors and windows rattle. Glassware and crockery rattle. Liquids in open vessels may be slightly disturbed. Standing motorcars may rock.
    Structures :
    Walls and frames of buildings, and partitions and suspended ceilings in commercial buildings, may be heard to creak.
    MMI V (Moderate shaking) ?

    People :
    Generally felt outside, and by almost everyone indoors. Most sleepers awakened. A few people alarmed.
    Fittings :
    Small unstable objects are displaced or upset. Some glassware and crockery may be broken. Hanging pictures knock against the wall. Open doors may swing. Cupboard doors secured by magnetic catches may open. Pendulum clocks stop, start, or change rate.
    Structures :
    Some large display windows cracked. A few earthenware toilet fixtures cracked.
    MMI VI (Strong shaking) ?

    People
    Felt by all. People and animals alarmed. Many run outside. Difficulty experienced in walking steadily.
    Fittings :
    Objects fall from shelves. Pictures fall from walls. Some furniture moved on smooth floors, some unsecured free-standing fireplaces moved. Glassware and crockery broken. Very unstable furniture overturned. Small church and school bells ring. Appliances move on bench or table tops. Filing cabinets or “easy glide” drawers may open (or shut).
    Structures :
    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?

    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?

    People
    Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected.

    Structures :
    Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down.

    Environment :
    Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?

    Structures
    Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames.

    Environment :
    Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
