Sarah Kay ’10, spoken word poet and founder of Project V.O.I.C.E., spoke at the annual TED conference in Long Beach, CA two weeks ago. TED holds annual conferences around the world, inviting speakers ranging from Madeleine Albright to Bill Gates to give presentations about their respective fields. In her talk, entitled “If I had a daughter…”, Kay performed two original poems, “B” and “Hiroshima.” TED, which just uploaded videos from this year’s Long Beach conference online, is featuring Kay’s talk on the front page of its website.
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 4/25
Ratty: Turkey and Wild Rice Soup, Chicken Cutlet Parmesan, Vegetarian Sandwich Bar, Swiss Fudge Cookies
V-Dub: Minestrone Soup, Steak and Pepper Fajitas, Black Bean and Spinach Tacos, Refried Beans, Swiss Fudge Cookies
Advantage: V-Dub. Why would we need a vegetarian sandwich bar when sandwiches are customizable anyway?
Ratty: Carrot Ginger Soup with Agave, Lemon Sesame Chicken, Spinach with Toasted Sesame Seeds, Magic Bar
V-Dub: Bean Chili, Mac And Cheese Bar, Corn Pudding, Braised Rainbow Swiss Chard, Florida Key Lime Pie
Advantage: V-Dub. Cheesy as it may sound, there's really no food quite as comforting as mac and cheese.
