Finding Stillness At 95 MPH : Shawn Green at TEDxOrangeCoast

"Life becomes much more fulfilling when we practice working and playing with complete presence", says Shawn Green on redefining the relevance of our life. Shawn Green's Major League Baseball career spanned fifteen seasons with four teams: the Toronto Blue Jays, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the New York Mets. During his baseball career, he won numerous accolades including both the American League Gold Glove Award and the Silver Slugger in '99. He finished in the top ten of voting for league MVP three times and was named the LA Sportsman of the Year for his 2002 season. But, statistics tell only part of the story. His path to success was as grounded in philosophical study as in baseball wisdom. Striving to find stillness within the scene of Major League Baseball, Green learned to approach the sport with a clear mind. This approach transformed him as a player, as a family man, and as a post-career athlete transitioning into other paths. He retired from baseball at 34 to spend time with his wife, Lindsay, and their two daughters. AboutTEDx. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading."

Seemingly strange weather patterns continue to break high and low temperature records. The same patterns spawned an early tornado season in the midwestern United States and brought late season snowstorms to the west. Record snow falls and frigid temperatures characterized a particularly difficult winter across Europe with many deaths attributed to the conditions. Signs of Spring for the Northern Hemisphere (which began officially with the Vernal Equinox - March 20 - when the hours of day are approximately equal to the hours of night) like trees blossoming and flowers blooming, the shedding of winter coats and the desire of anyone -who has spent an all too long winter season indoors - to venture outside to soak up the sun. -- Paula Nelson (45 photos total)

From Phoenix, we have three images of a baseball fan almost falling from the stands while trying to catch a ball during a home run derby (read more); at the British Open, John Daly doesn’t disappoint with his choice of golfing pants; we see a colorful mural in Havana; passengers on a brightly painted bus in Islamabad, Pakistan, pass the scene of an explosion.
