Subjects of past TED talks have covered all manner of business, art, technology and philosophy. CEOs, inventors, brainy fashion models and precocious kids have all presented unique thinking. Taking it one step further, the theme for this week's TEDxUNCAsheville is rethinking. "Topics include the parable of the pan, rethinking community gardening and activism, techniques for living a happy life, student military veteran treatment and the death of the rock star," says a press release for the conference, which is organized by students. The 15 speakers include five professors, five students and five local residents. TEDxUNCAsheville will be held in Lipinksy Auditorium at UNC Asheville on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. $5/$8/$10. tedxuncasheville.org.
