Tedx Vancouver

The hugely popular TED Talks series is bringing its local edition to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on October 18th for the 5th version of TEDxVancouver. The theme of this year’s event is TILT, as in tilt your perspective. Organizers hope to remove attendees from their comfort zones in the hope of finding new methods of circumventing traditional barriers that limit potential.

Here are the confirmed speakers for this year’s event:

Jay DeMerit

  • DeMerit is a retired soccer player who captained the Vancouver Whitecaps, before his retirement earlier this year due to injury. DeMerit is the subject of an independent film titled “Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story,” based on his seemingly impossible rise from ninth tier English soccer play to the Premier League with Watford.

Treana Peake

  • Peake is a Vancouver designer who started her own women’s fashion line, Obakki, in 2005. She has gone on to create the Obakki Foundation, a charitable organization that focuses on providing clean water and education in Africa.

Victor Chan

Charles Montgomery

  • Montgomery is the author of Happy City, an experimentalist’s take on the perceived goal of urban design.

Jennifer Gardy and Peter Gregson

  • This team of scientists is invested in researching the potential of DNA sequencing and its ability to solve public heath issues. This is a must-see for local health personnel.

Chip Wilson

  • Wilson, the founder of Lululemon Athletica, has been an inspiration to Vancouver entrepreneurs for decades. He recently got himself in a little hot water over comments he made about a certain customer demographic, but even so, Wilson is an undeniable leader with a lot to say.

The Black Veil

Lululemon yoga pants are like magical black sorcerers that help lift, tone and accentuate the backsides of women around the world. They can make you look like you spent all week on the stair-master, when you actually spent your free time getting caught up on Breaking Bad. They are a high-priced illusion for those of us who would rather enjoy a cinnamon bun, than run five miles after work.
But, if you want the real thing – the toned legs and the perfect bum – you need to hit the gym. Plain and simple. Lulus might help you catch a stare or two, but at the end of the day, those pants are coming off.
It’s like your mattress. You can dress up your bed with 800 thread count sheets, but if the coils beneath are worn, what’s the point? You would be far better off spending your money on a quality Beautyrest than Egyptian cotton.
Like a toned body, the quality of a mattress is found beneath the fabric layers. Simmons Beautyrest mattresses use individual pocket coils to support bodies of all sizes. Their unique design limits motion transfer and lets couples sleep soundly.
Pull back the black veil and work on improving the basics; the gym is calling. You can always rest later on your Beautyrest – sans pants.

Dressing ‘Up’ for Bed

Shah Rukh Khan is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. Appearing in over 70 Hindi films, Khan is considered by many to be the King of Bollywood.

With his new science fiction film, “Ra.One,” premiering on October 26th, the world media is obsessed with everything Kahn.

This week, an article in “Harper’s Bazaar” published some interesting facts about Kahn’s sleeping rituals.

Kahn was asked by Mala Sekhri to describe his bed attire. The middle-aged star, often referred to by his acronym SRK, revealed that he prefers to ‘dress up for bed.’

“I like to wear clean, really nice pair of clothes, so like my Dolce and Gabbana shorts, I will sometime . . . wear my Lululemon track pants and I’ll wear a nice, crisp white T-shirt.”

Kahn also went on to comment that he enjoys putting cologne on before crawling beneath the covers.

Cologne? Dress shirts? DG boxers? The ‘King’ knows how to push the boundaries of extravagant living. And a little shout-out to a local company.

We only hope his mattress is on par with his sweet-smelling wardrobe.
