Oklahoma is one of the top five states in the nation for food insecurity, and it is estimated that 1 in 7 Oklahomans goes to bed hungry. However, over 40% of materials in municipal solid waste (the stuff going to landfills) is food or other organic waste. If we just cut down on 15% of food waste in the U.S., we would cut hunger in half.

UCO English Professor Wayne Stein Speaks at TEDxUCO

Dr. Stein at TEDxUCO, holding nunchucks

Dr. Wayne Stein, Professor of English, delivered a talk titled “Resilience Against Cancer: Thriving Amidst Adversity” on April 14, 2021 as part of the TEDxUCO series. Stein discussed the ways in which he has used the path of the mindful warrior and the weapon of positivity to overcome painful adversities while battling cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic. He learned how to be aware of pain and to practice mindfulness through his lifelong practice of martial arts; a tense fighter cannot fight well, but the mindful practices of Bruce Lee helped Stein, who is now cancer-free, to win his battle with lymphoma and to overcome the tremendous pain that it inflicts. Stein now works to teach others about mindfulness as a way to overcome adversity.
