Samy Nour Younes is a trans actor and activist of Lebanese/Puerto Rican descent. His most recent credits include Into the Woods (Ford’s Theater), The Triumphant and Pay No Attention to the Girl (Target Margin Theater), and Well Intentioned White People (Barrington Stage). He can also be seen on season four of Transparent.

As an activist, Younes served on the leadership teams of the DC Area Transmasculine Society and the Baltimore Transgender Alliance. He has co-organized rallies for Pride, Transgender Day of Remembrance and more. He also leads panels on the barriers trans people face in accessing health care.

Younes has participated in national ad campaigns to promote awareness of LGBTQ+ issues. He was also the co-host of insighT with Consuella Lopez, a DC-based online talk show with an all-trans panel. He aims to highlight the diversity of the trans experience — not just in their struggles, but also in their triumph.

As of 2019, Younes has written one ten-minute play, “Ancestral Lines and Other Tall Tales,” which will be published in the upcoming Latinx Archive. He is currently developing two new works, including a solo show, both of which he aims to premiere this year.

To detect diseases earlier, let’s speak bacteria’s secret language | Fatima AlZahra’a Alatraktchi

Bacteria “talk” to each other, sending chemical information to coordinate attacks. What if we could listen to what they were saying? Nanophysicist Fatima AlZahra’a Alatraktchi invented a tool to spy on bacterial chatter and translate their secret communication into human language. Her work could pave the way for early diagnosis of disease — before we even get sick.

A new class of drug that could prevent depression and PTSD | Rebecca Brachman

Current treatments for depression and PTSD only suppress symptoms, if they work at all. What if we could prevent these diseases from developing altogether?

Learn how these resilience-enhancing drugs could change the way we treat mental illness.

Creative ways to get kids to thrive in school | Olympia Della Flora

To get young kids to thrive in school, we need to do more than teach them how to read and write — we need to teach them how to manage their emotions, says educator Olympia Della Flora. In this practical talk, she shares creative tactics she used to help struggling, sometimes disruptive students — things like stopping for brain breaks, singing songs and even doing yoga poses — all with her existing budget and resources. “Small changes make huge differences, and it’s possible to start right now … You simply need smarter ways to think about using what you have, where you have it,” she says.

How you can help save the bees, one hive at a time | Noah Wilson-Rich

Bees are dying off in record numbers, but ecologist Noah Wilson-Rich is interested in something else: Where are bees healthy and thriving? To find out, he recruited citizen scientists across the US to set up beehives in their backyards, gardens and rooftops.

Why I turned Chicago’s abandoned homes into art | Amanda Williams

Amanda Williams shares her lifelong fascination with the complexity of color: from her experiences with race and redlining to her discovery of color theory to her work as a visual artist. Journey with Williams to Chicago’s South Side and explore “Color(ed) Theory,” a two-year art project in which she painted soon-to-be-demolished houses bold, monochromatic colors infused with local meaning — catalyzing conversations and making the hidden visible.

The secret to scientific discoveries? Making mistakes | Phil Plait

Phil Plait was on a Hubble Space Telescope team of astronomers who thought they may have captured the first direct photo of an exoplanet ever taken. But did the evidence actually support that? Follow along as Plait shows how science progresses — through a robust amount of making and correcting errors. “The price of doing science is admitting when you’re wrong, but the payoff is the best there is: knowledge and understanding,” he says.

How to keep human bias out of AI | Kriti Sharma

AI algorithms make important decisions about you all the time — like how much you should pay for car insurance or whether or not you get that job interview. But what happens when these machines are built with human bias coded into their systems? Technologist Kriti Sharma explores how the lack of diversity in tech is creeping into our AI, offering three ways we can start making more ethical algorithms.
