Batteries would appear to be the inexpensive solution to our growing fuel issues, however the environmental cost of battery materials and disposal is economically and environmentally unsustainable. What if there was a battery that never needed to be thrown away, whose materials were renewable and non-toxic? Enter Dr. Donald Sadoway’s innovative “liquid battery” which provides inexpensive, reusable energy from materials as common as dirt.Win_Rosenfeld.html
Understanding how our fellow humans think and react to situations is important to our evolution as a society. Dr. Jonathan Haidt, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, believes that all humans share the same basic moral values, however the difference in how we weigh those values is what provides such a divide in our political structure. His book, The Happiness Hypothesis explores this difference and how we may become a better society through understanding each other.Win_Rosenfeld.html
Solving the challenges faced by exponential technology is the key focus of the Singularity University. Co-founder Peter Diamandis believes the future co-existence of humans and machines need not be a bleak one, but one that can be leveraged to solve challenging questions human have been unable to answer.Win_Rosenfeld.html
Archaeologist Sarah Parcak  has dedicated her life to uncovering lost civilizations, buried deep underground from a novel vantage point: outer space. Most of archeology is about meticulous and painstaking work, chipping away with chisels and brushes for years, and Parcak has done more than her share of that too. But her use of infrared-equipped satellites has put her on the cutting edge of her field. In the last few years she’s uncovered 17 lost pyramids and thousands of tombs and villages that would have been impossible to find through traditional methods. It doesn’t replace the tried and true methods of the archeology, but Parcak’s work is transforming the field, by shining new (infrared) light on where we should be digging.Win_Rosenfeld.html
Neuroscientist Gregory Gage  created “Backyard Brains” so children of all ages could have a more “hands on” relationship with the brain and its electrical nature. Gage’s devices allow children to safely perform amateur neurosurgery on cockroaches (none of the buggers areever harmed, I swear, I did it myself!)
With some of his kits you can listen to neurons firing through a household speaker, or watch the waveform of them firing on your iPad. And with the latest, you can even control movements of the roach remotely through electrical stimulation.
