Monica Lewinsky’s TED Talk Will Change The Way You View Cyberbullying

Just like Monica Lewinsky, everyone deserves a second chance….

A A A

Long before the age of social media, Monica Lewinsky, a woman once tagged as former President Bill Clinton’s other woman, became the first victim of online bullying.

For almost two decades, Monica chose to remain silent and disappear from the public. But with internet shaming becoming a mainstream culture not just in America but worldwide, the woman whose life was tremendously changed by this trend, decided to speak out against it.

In a monumental talk she gave for TED Talk last March in Vancouver, Monica discussed the “The Price of Shame”. The woman involved in a sex scandal with Clinton in 1998 talked about  how cyberbullying and online harassment affected her life.

Monica revealed:

“I lost my reputation, my dignity, I almost lost my life,”

For some, Monica’s TED talk revealed a different side of the once controversial lady. But for many, the message of her speech can be a powerful tool against cyberbullying.

Her message is worth 20 minutes of your time. Whether you’re the predator or the victim in this culture, listening to Monica’s TED talk may actually change your life.

Online, we’ve got a compassion deficit, an empathy crisis. We need to return to a long-held value of compassion.”

People like Monica deserve a second chance in life. Let’s all put an end to the public shaming culture.

Mandy was in the brink of losing her dear life due to a case of internal bleeding. The doctors said she wouldn't survive, and that she has a few months to live. So when Paul Curran, her partner of 20 years, suggested that they get married right then and there at the hospital, she quickly agreed. Dubbed as "deathbed wedding," the ceremony was done plainly and swiftly, and shortly after, she was admitted in the intensive care unit.

Mandy and Paul Curran Happily Marry.

Snowboarder Builds an Unbelievable Tiny House on Top of a Mountain.

He did something no one has done before. He built a tiny cabin on top of a mountain. Now watch the inside.

'He's always chasing the pot of gold, but when he gets there, at the end of the day, it's just corn flakes.'

This line from the movie 'Click' says so much about people who don't want to settle for less, those who want more--wealth, fame, a fancy car and a big house. It's a different thing for pro-snowboarder Mike Basich. After living in abundance, he finds solace in simple things like his dream home which is a tiny mountain cabin.

Inspired by these tiny houses all over the world, many people started living off the grid just like Mike. His life and craft has been outdoors being a professional snowboarder so he thought of building his very own sanctuary in the mountains. Named Area-241, his personal cabin is situated in the Sierra Nevada mountains and roughly 10 minutes outside Truckee, California. The pentagon- shaped and 228-square-feet tiny house gets its electricity through solar panels and water from snowmelt.
