Amy Purdy: Living beyond limits
Kash - I too was interested in her prosthetics. I know there have been great advancements made and would like to hear the details. What a difference the right prosthetic meant to Amy's snowboarding. She appears to have balance and easy graceful movement. It's clear that the right prosthetic would make all the difference in the world to a disabled person.

How will you strive to change the World?
I am organizing a celebration of the Global Truce next year (Sept 21, 2012) for our town. Music of all kinds to celebrate one day of peace and non-violence. I've talked to a leading religious organization, our mayor, the local high school, and some business people. Next will be the sports crowd, the arts folks in the area and the farmers nearby. Support is steadily growing. If this Global Truce is successful I'd like our children to be able to say."I was at the celebration of the first-ever Global Truce". And when I think about a day when people can safely go out to get food and water, to visit family, to worship, to lay on a beach, to repair homes, to get medical care - without the worry of gunfire and bombings - I smile from ear-to-ear in happiness. What fun it will be ,to be in a community of people celebrating this event and hoping for many more.

How can I create a Aha moment during my crowd sourced TED talk?
Could a social network be analagous to a human body where, the 'wisdom of the crowd' (the answer) requires every cell (social network member) to be responding to the question of "What should I be doing to contribute to optimal health?"(the question you propose to a social neywork). Health is more likely if all cells are participating versus just specific groups of cells. Better answers are more likely from social networks than from specific groups. ??? You have a good idea yet one that is difficult to make real, to make the penny drop. Use beautiful language, be sequential and be clear. People will take what they are ready to hear. I hope I hear your talk.

Srdja Popovic: How to topple a dictator
Check out Gene Sharp's www.aeinstein.org, the main source of ideas for many non-violent revolutions. I happened to be in Ottawa when there was an opening of a movie called: How to Start a Revolution. It's about Gene Sharp's ideas and how they have been used by this speaker, amongst others, to bring down dictatorships. Gene Sharp has come up with almost 200 peaceful means to a revolution. His publications are brilliant, exciting and, maybe, herald a new era. Srdja Popovic and a colleague are a kind-of "rent a revolution" as they have experience and expertise. They are an international influence in some of the recent non-violent struggles.

Kim Gorgens: Protecting the brain against concussion
This talk provides important information. My personal experiences are with young adult males who fight with each other regularly and sustain multuple head injuries over the course of a few years. Learning is difficult for them; their abilities in retention, concentration and critical thinking are compomised. They need to know what's happening. Remember when AIDS consciousness began? I hope these are the early days of concussion consciousness.
