John Lloyd: An animated tour of the invisible
A lot of people appear to be annoyed at some of the supposed scientific inaccuracies - and I do completely understand - but the point of the video, which is clearly stated at the beginning, is to create a sense of wonder. And if wonder wasn't the foundation of all our scientific knowledge, then i'll be damned.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of learning models that exist outside of traditional educational institutions?
For an alternative method of education you might look at growing up with your parents. Consistent figures are priceless in the upbringing of children - perhaps there is a way to replicate the same consistency through school? A disadvantage of this would be that kids would be stuck with the same teacher for a number of years, although I feel the bonds made would summon a large amount of respect, understanding and overall efficient learning.

THE CITY 2.0 – EVOLVED (NOT MADE) BY ECOLOGICAL HUMANS
Hi Rachel, I am by no means an expert in anyway-shape-or-form, but from an initial perspective yes, a city can be solved - although I might imagine it a little easier to start from scratch. Trying to apply organic ideas to a machine like system could be frictional - if I fertilise my laptop, I should not expect many improvements. Not that you want to hear that. But I would imagine an intermediate stage - or transition period - possible for existing cities, whereby you get cyborg cities (I use the term loosely) Something that seems sensible to me would be to define some fundamentals. I think a city should be adaptable and flexible like an organic species rather than a machine designed for a specific purpose. Changing to it's own environment for survival. This is vage I know, but it might spark some ideas... Jon

What word would you use to describe music?
Alright, well I think you should take a look at "The National", who are an indie band who are quite big in america. "Boxer" is a fine album to sink your teeth into. I would rest some hope with them to begin the swaying of your opinion. There is a lot more too, but it may not be as accessible. Sometime we have to spread our wings a little and look to different genres.
