Loads of intricate knowledge on interesting and varied fields of study are all available in one place — Spokane’s own version of the Technology, Entertainment and Design, better known as TED, conference. Among the 14 speakers featured at the local presentation is expert peacemaker Samuel Mahaffy, whose experiences as a conflict resolver and management consultant inspire his talk on the creation of peaceful space. Washington State University sleep researcher Dr. Bryan Vila also presents on the impact of fatigue in “critical occupations,” partly based on his previous experience as a law enforcer. The talks’ theme is “Connections and Intersections,” tying the audience into others’ intellect.
