Simon Anholt: Which country does the most good for the world?
I suggest to give the veto right only to the countries which have high Goodness Index. The veto is used many times as an economical tool to maximize the profits of "not good enough" governments/countries. Some governments ,in the technologically advanced countries, are causing severe social and environmental cost mainly outside of their own borders. They indirectly support unethical regimes which create a mass social mess and ignorance, refugees and troubles around the world. They support the corrupted regimes and use what it take to keep them in power to maximize their own GDP/ "growth". They create a burden on earth and on the good countries too. The mass accumulated deprivation and ignorance cause a loop of wrong destructive choices which take generations to get fixed. And this is where the corruption energise, reside and rule. And since the value of such bill is complex and intangible it has never been calculated accurately.

Stefan Larsson: What doctors can learn from each other
"Are we forgetting the patient?" I think this an important question and the answer to this is maybe correlated to : 1- How true the conducted scientific researches are. Some researches contradict with each other and some have wrong conclusions. http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2013/10/daily-chart-2?fsrc=scn/fb/wl/dc/unlikelyresults 2- The credibility of the doctors. In other words putting the profit first. 3- The quality of the operation, which is the topic of this talk. So in my opinion, it's very helpful to collect these huge amount of data and compare the results of the performed operations. This might not only improve the method of doing a specific operation but also might help to determine which technique is the best. It is kind of continuos ongoing research.

Kate Stone: DJ decks made of... paper
It's one of the wisest quote I have read. "You can't act on any object, You change it's environment, and the object will flow". It's abstract idea but deeply touching. There are many solutions to every problems but the most sustainable one is the one which is achieved with minimum force, processes and waste. In Finish education system they make the best environment for every student and every student flow.It's one of the best education in the world and has the lowest school dropout.

Andres Lozano: Parkinson's, depression and the switch that might turn them off
The speaker avoided to list some potential damages which could be caused by such technology to the brain. Inserting such devices in the brain destroy in it's way many neurons which have functions thus damage some other healthy parts of the brain. And since the science knowledge about the brain is very limited and superficial, and in case of long term negative consequences, there might be difficulties to explain to the users of such technology what has happened to them. The damage is irreversible. There were some technologies which seemed to be good one day but then got banned. ***************************************************************************************************** My point here in not about not to use this technology. But about the irreversible distortions which are caused by these invasive technologies. I really feel sorry to read that they are experimenting on obese now. Making an obese slim with unfixable tunnel in his brain might not be the best solution for him. Are they aware about the psychological effect of distorting human body? If the obese agreed to have the tunnel in his head to get slim now, then he might regret this distortion in the future. Botox advertised as wrinkles remover not as expression remover and it actually damage the face muscles. Profit might be involved here. When I look at a natural face with all of it's beautiful expressions I really feel sorry for those who lost their full face expressions. Wrinkles could have disappeared with some mind control and exercise rather than invasive solutions. The same for the breast implants which change the natural structure of the breast and damage many healthy cells which obstruct it's integral function.

Colin Powell: Kids need structure
Such structure create obedient community ,reduce creativity and shut down critical thinking. I think such structure created most of the problems in the world. Humans become tools for a purpose/structure determined by someone else. Obey me, don't think, and get the trophy from me at the end for being the tool which I want you to be. Then my pressure on you will be less and you are allowed to feel happy after you become a robot. The structure is all about shutting down the human instinct.

Adam Davidson: What we learned from teetering on the fiscal cliff
Is it a math problem?, Math alone already created a lot of problems. I don't deny the advantage of math in solving many problems but on other hand nearly every problem the earth is the result of soul less mathematical model. It's nearly impossible for the mathematical model to formulate the whole living systems , including the brains and the emotions. The republican party "The German Japanese Machine" made economical boom by ignoring the growth of the lower class and by degrading their human value. It's a good solution to achieve fast economical boom. It's main idea is based on burning the lower class into gold. But the bill which they have to pay now over weigh the profit they have made years ago. Sustainable profit is perfectly achieved only by well educated and personally motivated citizens. I know that many would say that people intelligence is different and I think that the government played major role in this. This problem is common in the USA more than Sweden or Finland. The burden of those labor who were working for years as robots in production line is so heavy on the society , those people have now less value (economical value) than their previous one and they are competing with robots . The traditional German internal combustion engine takes one unit of energy convert third of it into heat, loss the other third in friction and produce only one third of it's input into mechanical power. It produce noise and emissions too. Chicago University and Milton Friedman model is the same it's linked with a lot of friction and heat such as drugs, HIV, home loss ,suicides, social destruction, crimes, more spend on security...etc. Good for short term but not sustainable. It's efficient but not effective.

Aaron Huey: America's native prisoners of war
100,000,000$ / 250,000 Indian= 400$ for each Indian. What a generosity!! Greed led to bad consequences, it's polluting the earth and exterminating the life on earth. The wrong deeds has at the end bad consequences(even after hundreds of years). And if the good doesn't know how to unite or doesn't want to unite then let the earth be destroyed by the greedy and selfish people. If we are not considering the problem of every indigent and repressed person as our problem then we (or the coming generations) will certainly pay for that.
