Chris Anderson: How web video powers global innovation
Hi Chris, thank you and TED for giving us intelligence and inspiration. I pretty love talks and speakers here. But unfortunately some videos labeled Best of the Web are unavailable here. It is possible that videos on YouTube are blocked in mainland China. It is inconvenient sometimes as you can see. Hope TED could consider this problem. Thank you very much.

Stephen Hawking: Questioning the universe
It is the first time I hear about so-called push gravity or shadow gravity. Two bodies are "shadowing" each other and pushed toward each other by the resulting imbalance of forces. Thus the apparent attraction between bodies is a diminished push from the direction of other bodies. Sounds interesting but this theory was generally considered to be conclusively discredited at the beginning of 20th century. Let's ignore it.

James Geary: Metaphorically speaking
Thank you, Chris. I have seen and operated several cases on that website. I am surprised that Prezi is so powerful and awesome tool that could help us create stunning presentations. I believe Prezi is a Powerpoint-killer.

Gary Flake: Is Pivot a turning point for web exploration?
Sounds powerful. But I don't think everyone likes to taste it. Cool experience is at the expense of others things, such as new machines to catch up high requirement, a large amount of time to get used to new web. Anyway, improvement is significant and necessary since it provides us more choices.

Matt Weinstein: What Bernie Madoff couldn't steal from me
Thanks Tristan. But unfortunately the website you provided cannot be opened either. William, I have the same problem as you. All videos on YouTube are blocked in mainland China. We cannot see all Ted videos added on Best of the Web though others are OK. I hope Ted could help us solve this problem by posting these videos on other channels instead of Best of the Web or YouTube. Thank you.

Arthur Benjamin: Teach statistics before calculus!
I have to say that calculus is kind of boring when I study it at university. Fortunately I realize that probability and statistics are useful in real life especially in business management. I think that is why probability statistics occupies a large portion of Quantitative section in GMAT test for MBA.
