Kimberley Motley: How I defend the rule of law
Well after hearing her speech & reading the comments I ask: Is there a computer capable of handling the written law? Could a computer be better suited for such task? Could a computer be able to establish sentence, penalty an procedure better than a lawyer, a judge and the jury? Could a computer be more fare and impartial than people working in the legal system? Could a computer be more affordable than the current system of law? The human factor As we have seen several times already, the agenda of a judge, lawyer, state and country, plus other human factors may deliver unexpected sentences, penalty's. As we have seen already there are countries that allow money, friendship, religion, ethnicity, health, and many other factors to twist the outcome of the law. Could a computer be able to “behave” as expected by the procurement of law? Could a computer be the best option?

Moshe Safdie: How to reinvent the apartment building
Hello Paul, lets see if you can understand the goal. Overpopulation is a story. The tale about overpopulation was made by ho knows ho, to do ho knows what. We have all heard the saying: "This town is to small for the tow of us, if you don't leave, by down, only one will be." The overpopulation, is more a matter about poor management of resources and people It is to note that over exploitation comes from the same type of poor management. Now I have already made a clear, and logical explanation about the overpopulation topic, and about the irregular sprawling of houses, so I am not going to repeat that, yet you can find my comments of that topic in the tow previous TED talks. The solution that I have come to, is to use the extra space that a vertigo causing skyscraper offers. Most of the opponents are people ho just talk to talk. Most of the opponents are people, ho want to get rid of the others in untold ways, perhaps, so they can have or keep a "ranch" type of house, so they can do whatever they want, regardless of the negative effects that such infrastructure represents for the environment. My idea about the skyscrapers, is been made in a way as to focus the attention to the poor, this is, the bast majority of inhabitants, and not so much about the middle class nor the plutocrats. In a place where you have a lot of super-tall buildings, you can include micro environments, so you can add inside such monoliths: malls, parks, restaurants, gyms, movies, hotels, schools, banks, hospitals, etc... As it has been done before, its a proven concept. There is no better mobility than what is found where are skyscrapers, as most of it happens in the sub-floors and in the subway. For the same reason there is no better way to keep pollutants at a minimum. According to my numbers we need at least 21,000 skyscrapers in the USA, ideally 50,000. take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3GuIp4KEHM

Moshe Safdie: How to reinvent the apartment building
those prices are ridiculous, not applicable for solving the overpopulation. I guess now we know, that they wont be called to intervene... Also, that explains why the video is only minutes long! haha... I got some heavy words to say, yet TED would remove my comment if I did... haha at 1.55 billion Burj Khalifa beauty seems like a more down to earth option: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burj_Khalifa Yet for the masses, I would try to see how to cut that price drastically, without compromising security. at 1.39 Shanghai World Financial Center is also a beauty en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_World_Financial_Center Remember its not only about the low price, but about the number of levels ideally above 100, and the internal capacity, as it has to harbor 15,000 people, this is, about 137 people per level. Take a look at the good world trade center specs in the following link: www.nysm.nysed.gov/wtc/about/facts.html

Lord Nicholas Stern: The state of the climate — and what we might do about it
well as long as you can't state how the overpopulation control would be done your argument is just a statement that leads nowhere, but that can be used by sick people to do harm. You say that you don't want to live in a building yet you don't say where you live or where you would like to live. such arguments are not productive Population control in base of what? money?, religion?, health?, age? genetics?, IQ levels? Country? lottery? race? sexual preference?... come on... Most of such finite resources are being miss used, and if that is not fixed it wont matter much how many people are out there.

Moshe Safdie: How to reinvent the apartment building
What?, only 5 minutes? hummm I truly like the topic, as I do see it as the only best option for any city or nation. The design of the projects may have left some critical things unsolved, yet they truly are proven real concepts. Lets not forget that a building with 50 plus levels can be built underground or as already seen, and even both ways as well.
