Karima Bennoune: When people of Muslim heritage challenge fundamentalism
Taking the good Ms. Bennoune's declaration to keep Islam out of western democracies, it would help if she had offered solutions to communities in Western countries to keep "them" from migrating or establishing their ghetto doctrines while taking public assistance and denouncing their new countries. What validates fundamentalist thinking is to make conditions so deplorable in Muslim ruled countries that no opportunity is provided except to illegally migrate to where jobs and opportunities exist mainly the western bastions of civility. Knowing no other way except to be motivated by the ignorance they possess and the valid discrimination by their host countries they begin the fundamentalist destructive behaviors that moved them from their Islamic state. Tough love is required by squeamish politicians who if themselves illegally migrated or had parents who migrated illegally find it hard to pull the plug on the dirty, the rabble and diseased, migrant. What these politicians fail to understand is that the destructive cultures to western thought are no longer disconnected from their Islamic host visa vi the www. & cheap cell phone access. The burden of migrating illegally or legally from an Islamic country should be on the migrant in the form of higher tariff's when sending money or communicating to Islamic countries. Enacting greater scrutiny for donations to Islamic charities including their point for destructive thought the mosque with enforceable laws that prohibit charitable contributions from being sent to Islamic host countries. Legally allowing local communities and hamlets to enforce Zero tolerance for new arrivals illegal accessing jobs, social benefits, or over staying tourist or residency visa's with immediate deportation a good start for putting boots on the ground and keeping immigration legal. It is one thing to bemoan the strife but deterrents are a much better solution.

Paul Bloom: Can prejudice ever be a good thing?
I have watched this video multiply times. I see it's value and target audience for young adults. I would really like it, if this was made into a core subject in high schools at ninth grade level. Or a two week gap required for all high school freshman accompanied with a workbook of case studies for problem solving. A better use of Gate's Foundation Money than a Good Country Report.

Graham Hill: Why I'm a weekday vegetarian
It is interesting the motivations for removing something from our daily diet. We mentally prepare, then set about with an internal dialogue supported by past experience or new knowledge. At first writing this I wanted to tell how disappointed I was when I switched off eating meat to only vegetables. But then I remembered I quit all sugar drinks which was a lot harder. It took almost 9 months to stop craving sugar. I would see someone drinking one and felt like a junkie in withdrawl. Very powerful and addictive stuff. I have been blending my mix for the last 13 years daily. It has a bit of everything, no fruit but a color from every vegetable group. Green, red, yellow, orange. I thought I need to drop some weight fast and decided only to drink my mix. I was so disappointed. Three weeks in and I didn't miss food. What felt strange was the social aspect of not eating food. Meat or anything else. I gained a slight energy advantage but now relaxing was problem with too much energy. It sucks when you can go all day and not feel tired or run down or sore. I think I've have hit the summit with my nutrition. What is scary was how easily I was able to shift diets and be none the worse or better because of it. The speaker seems novice for labeling his decision.

Nicholas Negroponte: A 30-year history of the future
I believe he was referring to nano technology in the blood stream capable of getting past the blood brain barrier. These nano critters can maybe create a sound reflective ability so we see like a porpoise, enhancing our third eye. A sonar language would be universal with dialects instead of word definition and pronunciation. Just a thought into the future perhaps.

Simon Anholt: Which country does the most good for the world?
Simon, I really like the dashboard design of the site. Very clever and efficient. You deserve high fives. It is unexpected with the warm inviting colors for such a cerebral challenge. You keep it fun and light heart'd. Your Talk fits well in the TED pantheon of Marxists utopian thought. Grounded in recognizable tags but when assembled looks like a dictatorship having the deciding vote at a General Assembly meeting of the General Counsel of the World Order meetings. Prior to posting I had read through most of the comments. Truth be known. I tend to get bored reading the posts your colleagues or direct reports made debating the virtues of the data sets. I like a meat on the bone reply by those posting who were confused by it all but appreciate your warm style and generous smile. I respect that you are working ever angle. Way to go. I like that you have committed to your cause and for that your premise deserves a second look maybe even an opportunity to be a valid entry in the cluttered market for up-selling a country's virtues.

Simon Anholt: Which country does the most good for the world?
The producers of the morning show picked the winner that being the woman who knew how to make her own BBQ sauce and was television ready. They also picked who they predicted would be the obvious loser. Simplistic recipe, not naturally camera ready. The host of the show made the mistake of interpreting the loser's score as the winner. I can see any number of other countries making the top of the list but Ireland. Come on. Thank you for taking responsibility for your talk. I would have thought good government would be governments who protect property rights. The foundation for a lot of western democracies wealth.

Simon Anholt: Which country does the most good for the world?
How the author of this talk arrives at his conclusion reminds me of a BBQ sauce contest presented for early morning television. The finalist were selected by producers, one of the contestants was clearly a made for television personality. A Mrs. Doubtfire type with an excellent mix, the other was. . . Well. Let's just say, Worshire sauce and ketchup. The scores were tallied for both by the on screen talent. Here was the problem. They interpreted the highest worst score as the best score. Well. What made it even better was the WINNER was having a domestic argument and couldn't accept her prize on the morning show. Not really a game changer just a reminder, people make mistakes.

What do you feel the best education setting is for American kids?
Elementary and secondary education fulfillment centers would benefit by hiring more male instructors. The sixties era thinking that education be a female only profession is as outdated as feminism. Most of the homes the children come from are female dominated with not much hope for a future. Male instructors would provide a positive role model and not a competing role model as is the case with an all female instructor base. The majority of failing schools are managed and staffed by lady instructors which is probably the answer to your question why public education cannot compete with the rest of the world. Prove me wrong. Look at the numbers. In the highly performing countries they will all have a majority of male instructors.
