My TED story

Jenna McCarthy: What you don't know about marriage
This is basically a conversation opener. I liked the way she introduced her ideas but would love her to have shared a couple of deep questions about marriage. Where do you get the courage to forgive each day? How do you find common ground to solve life and kids problems? How do you fave a tough family situation, like a personal illness or dementia? Let's say that she just introduced the theme, now we have to think about it!

Rory Sutherland: Sweat the small stuff
I agree. Ellegance is the proper term. Then we can move on talking: What are the elements of an ellegant solution? Alan Siegel's presentation this year: Let's simplify legal jargon! is a formal example of a process oriented to an elegant solution. On the other hand it looks to me that having an Ellegance Director doesn't yet fit our companies or governments.

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover
Understanding a problem and figuring out what the relevant issues are should be the method we teach not only in math but in life. The fact that highschool students dislike math is not only related to the way the TV or socitey shapes them; it is also a consequence of boring classes and irrelevant solutions to non-important examples. Dan is making a real effort to change his students mind and make them THINK. The real fact behind the scene is this: Every student wants and needs to learn math, but a huge part of our society are trying to convince them of something else. Why are you taking one medicine and not simple colored water? Why are you writing on a computer? Do not tell me you don't have to understand highschool or college math. Math is one of the greatest tools we use to build our civilization.

Julia Sweeney: It's time for "The Talk"
I loved this talk. Unexpected things happen when you follow the rules from the experts on how to answer question to your kids. It is amazing how fast they grow and how much information they can get during the process. Sex is still a little bit difficult to discuss with my kids because I try to get them ready to hear different stories from their peers. I certainly relate to Julia's feelings. Thank you for a really fun time!
