Jennifer Granholm: A clean energy proposal -- race to the top!
If she was so desperate to keep the company in the US, why offer then incentives when a more effective proposal would have been to punish them. If more than 5% of your employees are from outside the US then you pay 90% tax!! If your company is registered outside the US (like on a tax haven to avoid tax)- you cant sell goods/services. I am studying Sustainable Building, therfor promoting Sustainable Living. This means I am trying to Stop the American way of life, does that make me a Terrorist??

Susan Cain: The power of introverts
Is it not strange that when browsing the comments, every so often, infact fairly regulary, there is someone that goes "How biased towards introverts"- like out of the 600+ comments no one has said that before. Each time someone takes the time to point out why they are missing the point. Time and time again this happens, surely if your going to write a comment you should browse the chat first? I noticed this trend in browsing for about a minute, which leads me to think that some people just want to make noise. If I were to compare this to meditation - How hard it is for some to stop the inner noise and are just bouncing around on the whims and impulses of the mind without really thinking. I thought that i was a bit mental until I heard this talk, so I would just like to take this opportunity to ask/say something that I have never mentioned to anyone before. To other introverts have you noticed how easy it is to manage, manipulate, control or direct these extroverts?

Ory Okolloh: How I became an activist
Thanks ory! Why does this talk not have an inspirational tag? I found this to be one of the most inspirational talks on TED. I cant work out exactly why, maybe, that it was just so personal. Im inspired not to do something in Africa, just to be a better man and more motivated to help others and the Earth. To see Africa overcome her problems would be a fantastic time for the whole Earth!!
