Shai Reshef: An ultra-low-cost college degree
kudos to Shai to spear headed the project and able to get it sustain. the hurdle i oversee will be how the university accredited degree will be able to convince the employer that they are hiring a quality and sound worker with this relatively new means of learning. University of people needs to definitely build its reputation before it proves to be a working model. another problem would be with the saturation of the UoP degree in the society, due to the core tenet of 'nobody should be denied a chance of education due to financial reason' will the degree have any value in the end? i suspect the elite universities have its share of glory among the employers due to its exclusivity; a limited number of pool of intelligent student to sum up, i think this is the perfect way of self learn for a dummy degree that may not worth anything in the market. i may be wrong.

Cameron Russell: Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.
thank you ms russel for bringing the insight out especially from someone who deeply webbed in the industry. i agree that genetic disposition, therefore how you look, will benefit many in terms of likeability. these people usually will do well in life regardless of whatever they have done. as rife the superficiality is, judgemental people will continue to evaluate based on colour, race, height and etc., and continue missing out the point the beauty come from within. as long as superficiality thrives, consumerism will follow suit, as that is the only way for not so fortunate in genetic lottery, also the insecure ones, to win in the vanity contest. sad world we live in.

Naomi Oreskes: Why we should trust scientists
In my opinion, the reason that we should trust science is because the state of our current world today is thanks to the advance in technology, aka science. we will tend to believe something that works. Despite of the multiple revision of a certain theory, it highlights the fact that science has not been perfected, or never be. science is an enduring endeavour and may be esoteric to some that i understand why the majority of the public choose to oversee science and view money as a tangible object that they trust

Simon Anholt: Which country does the most good for the world?
I may be wrong on my view on this, the reason that developing countries, those who are not that affluent, can not contribute to being good country is because of the dark past they have, colonialism, stubborn ideologies and so fort. I would like to highlight that in third world countries, the conglomerates are selfish humans who wants to bring wealth to themselves, economical growth to the country is secondary, let alone wanting to contribute to the whole humanity

Paul Piff: Does money make you mean?
I certainly do not come from the upper half of the society, but i do have personal dream which collective cause. Sometime after seeing the bleak life of the lower class in a setting where inequality is prevalent, you could not help to have ambition to become like one of the elite. the question is whether that person will still hold the same value of the class he originated from.

Yves Rossy: Fly with the Jetman
the foreseeable problem that i can highlight is that how can it make it readily available to the public to spark revolution in commuting. the user has to have certain level of fitness and aptitude before using the jet. this remarkable invention may unfortunately remain as a hobby of daredevils

Raffaello D'Andrea: The astounding athletic power of quadcopters
thank you ted for such awed talks. I am amazed by the power of algorithm. this video has opened my view to different dimension and reaffirmed my passion on engineering and technology. I am sure that it has sparked some interests among the viewers, and in my opinion this one way to attract the future youth to plunge into technology field. I would want to have a project to build such machine in my free time in the near future.

If you could spend one day in a great library studying anything you wanted, what would you study?
A day? I would spend my whole life in a great library to study to satisfy the hunger for knowledge, and partially to catch up on reading that I have never done before in my childhood. My passion lies on making earth as liveable as possible. global warming is no longer a myth, just a fact that everybody want to forget in today's torrent of economic crisis. My reading lists will be segregated to several parts: Studying the elemental mechanism of global warming, dating to the prehistoric past Occasional drifting to interesting and unrelated subjects to refresh the mind Learning from the precedented efforts made by concerned citizens of earth Reading biographies of inspiring leaders to keep the motivation high Explore the possible methods of saving the earth, and establish networks with the authors of academic papers for collaboration. These would sum up my entire life in the great library. it is humanly impossible to live in the library for the rest of your life, but it should always be a second home for everybody as it is indeed the only place that meet your intellectual demand as a human being.
