Oren Yakobovich: Hidden cameras that film injustice in the world’s most dangerous places
A heart-felt effort that each and every one of us should assist and forfeit resistance towards. Political justifications are as thin as dust in the face of raw humanity. The proliferation of war is a subject which every side draws profit from, your poorly thought considerations might be unwillingly helping these nefastos parties flourish. Quit the political game in your mind if you find yourself blind to basic humane questions and needs.

Michael Specter: The danger of science denial
He acts like a spokesman, or like a salesman, not like a scientist (or journalist for that matter). And the speech shows it. I would say "its a shame this gets on TED", but maybe its good to have these kind of people exposed too.

Michael Specter: The danger of science denial
The science behind vaccination is sound and proven. The violent capitalization process that we've witnessed taking place on vaccines is also real, and as clear as day. The idea behind genetically modifying food to better feed the world is a noble (extremely noble) and ambitious goal. The fact that the actual development of GMO's have only capital gains in sight, and nothing but, and have time and again shown complete disregard for the safety of the consumers, is an observable fact too. The speaker tries to make his way by denouncing absolutism, only to sneak in his own absolute and crystallized, status-quo reliant ideals. The trend society have been following, to question everything, including established science topics, is the flicker of hope of our times. Yes , we as a whole put a lot at stake by questioning known practices - but we have much more to gain from the experiment.

Jon Ronson: Strange answers to the psychopath test
There is a fundamental problem when a "work in progress" is used as a validated rule , and used to advocate law. Now, does it "have" to be used as a rule? This is when the necessity for security kicks in. Its a primal instinct, so we will always chose the safest path available. But the evolution of science will only be possible by people who are eager to challenge the current set of rules, for the sole purpose of making it more encompassing and updated. And sailing through uncharted waters is always a doubtful endeavor . Since you, yourself, acknowledge the severe lacking in diagnostic science, surely you would not only mind, but encourage those willing to enhance it.

Jon Ronson: Strange answers to the psychopath test
There are real psychopaths. That's a fact. There is a tendency in over-diagnosing mental diseases, because its not exact science and medical care always prefer to take the safest path whenever diagnosing is concerned....That is also a fact, and its the one addressed in this presentation. Unfortunately your comments undermine a critical part of the issue - the second part, in which many are held unlawfully due to poor or fearful/too cautious diagnostic procedures. However, I would agree if the argument was that Jon should have touched base ground on proven science about real psychopaths. The fact he didn't probably is what spur such antagonism. The use of spooky tunes and imagery also doesn't help at all towards coming forward as a reliable source. cheers.
