If the state is so bad at raising children, how come we allow the state to educate our children?
Hi dear TED community! I would like to share my experiences having studied in both sides of continent: The United States of America and Kazakhstan. I am a Kazakhstanian and graduated from a wonderful ordinary village school far away fro city and i am graduate of high school in States. I believe your point is somewhat not relevant to say that state is bad at raising our children. It is much more difficult to blame state when you have a wide range of political leaders in the World. One thing I found after studying for 10 years in my village school in Kazakhstan, I got a scholarship from and went to usa to get my education. I convinced my academic adviser to put me in to 12 grade to graduate and I did graduate with high GPA. What I want to point here is not my success but rather what is the motivation of some students! Many of people who complain that school is bad, do not even consider what is their child's motivation is. Most of people, even my host parents did not have to talk to my host brothers. I believe it is very bad for them, when they have better conditions of classroom than some other school in India or China do. I believe that most of the people do not value what they have and that is why they spend their time for nothing, do not ask. The other thing is social websites are the worst enemies of students because children tend to what their peers do and cannot go back because now everybody knows it. I believe children need to get an experience to study in poor or highly motivated high worker students schools. Or let your children study in a ordinary highly motivated Singapore or India schools then see the results. I have a lot of American, Canadian, British friends who actually got experience of studying in Southern Asian schools and they say they were blessed to open their eyes and value what they have!!! Do not blame others but ask from yourself do you knwo what is your children's notivation is? Did you ask who they going to be in near future?

Debate: We need to clearly define performance enhancing in sport.
I will be only to support anyone if they are there with their own strength. I do not see no problem to have a race or any kind of competition and win with my power, if not, if my opponent won over me because of pure practice I will respect him. However in International sport tournaments I do not think there is a pure competition. Once i was having a conversation with my friend, by the way he is physicist and chemist told a very funny story of tournaments. In the end he said, in the tournaments, IT IS NOT A COMPETITION OF SPORTSMEN, IT IS COMPETITION FOR DOCTORS. IT IS HOW THEIR DRUGS WILL NOT SHOW ON THE TESTS.

Can the brain be trained to make better use of VS Ramachandran's "mirror neurons"?
Hi there! I certainly believe that these mirror neurons can bring human beings togeather. But there are strategies are needed. In order to do that, one of the key factors to rule people's consciosness is to show them images and this is held by TV. Day after day millions and millions of people sit in front of the box with showing images with sounds. Of course, you might think differently, but I certainly believe that governments have learned it further than current public science has. So, in order to bring people together we need to switch for community collaboration rather than to sit at home and spend time in front of the box. Another thing is to,organize more events with people but not for competition and fame. In the most developed countries almost every collaboration is held because of some type of action to show that somebody is better than the other. I think mirror neurons are fascinating findings of our science, so to use them we need to use some African methods of collaboration. First we people need to sit around and share their experiences. Secondly, they need to do community cleaning or helping for old. Thirdly, people should share their wisdom of life. If that is done by people, I do not think next time we will be looking for ways to unite people. Thanks, Andrey Kurchatoff.

How can one achieve their full potential in the face of strict limitations?
Danny you are reallygood guy. Look at what is yor accomplishments are!!! From a point of a person who lives in a city, i think somewhat I understand your situation. But I would recomend three things to do, if you do not do it it is your choice, but if you follow it God bless you. 1) Go out to te nearest park, find a right place and drum as much as you want. 2) Go near houses where tey have too much sound proof glass and drum 3) give free concerts in hospitals, schools and for homeless. i believe you will be the source of inspiration for young and old!!! best wishes, Andrey Kurchatoff

Can we use clothing to induce Amy Cuddy's power positions?
From my personal experiences I woulld say wearing clothes are one small part of to increase your self awareness and power position. But the main point for wearing smart, expensive clothes would definitealy change others attitude towards the person. For example, if you gave a student ordinary clothe and let them go to interview for job or scholarship he/she might not feel tat she/he is different than others. But if you gave smart looking suit and leather shoes with Rolex watches absolutely te same student would feel much more powerful than the other ones. Even from his knowladge might not be enought, but the feeling would be greater than others would have.

Was Abraham Lincoln a hero or a traitor?
I respect your ideas and beliefs. From history books you probably agree that Abraham Lincoln did not just started a war for nothing. First of all, as a great politician, he could not come to deal with rich of the South. the second thing is that great Civil War actually was a push to development and come under one greatcountry USA.
