An idea worth spreading

I have much more than just "an idea," so perhaps it's best that I just end it there for now. ;-)

I'm passionate about

Promoting and serving the betterment of humankind through formal and non-formal education . . . (easier written than done, though, but it's definitely possible and doable).

2013 is coming to a close, all the websites have their "Best of's" out. What TED Talks made your best of? What websites made your best of?
Great question! As for ONE of my fave 2013 TED Talks, I would choose Ron Finley's presentation "A Guerilla[sic] Gardener in South Central L.A.": http://www.ted.com/talks/ron_finley_a_guerilla_gardener_in_south_central_la.html Unfortunately, however, I think I've encountered so many websites that I can't list all of my favorites here. If I just had to choose one, however, I would say that my favorite site/web page is focused on the blog comments that my students posted for our sociology course ("Social Problems & Issues) this past Fall semester: http://so105.weebly.com/blogs.html. They make me proud, so I had to boast about them a little bit! :-)

What is your most favourite place in the world? If its your country, why should people visit?
Thank you for your question, and I wish I could answer it appropriately. To be honest, though, I don't think I have a "favorite" place in the world, as I have found that there is beauty and joy in every place I've visited thus far (even if it's only a few meters away), and I look forward to more amazing and humbling sites, especially since I've only traveled to a few places around the world. You have mentioned that you connect with places that are rich in culture and flavors . . . Likewise, I love the connections with people. There are always unique, learning opportunities to encounter. Some of us are confined/limited to "small" spaces, whereas others have "traversed the world." We forget that we ALL have the world, and there are so many unique ways of experiencing and observing it (aside from a physical interaction) . . . even if it's only a ball of dust at the core.
