But, don't worry, your power is unlimited, so, you don't need anything or anyone to change your life now. You can realize all your dreams, so, why are you still front your computer screen ? Just do it now !

What have you learnt from watching TEDTalks?
Hi Joe, I didn't say that maths are useless but only the maths we learn at school. We learn how to resolve simple equations on paper while in our future jobs, we will need to resolve difficult equations using a computer. So, it is a totally different problem and what we learn is very far from what we really need.

What have you learnt from watching TEDTalks?
Hey Joe, what you said is beautiful. I think i learn more on TED than at school and i'm of course a khan academy member :-) I think it is in another talk i see that what we learn in math classes is useless for our future jobs. We need to work on real problems and with the sames resources like computers and math softwares ... but we are still working on paper, like if computers were not yet invented.

What have you learnt from watching TEDTalks?
I am a student, so, my power is very low :-/ For exemple, the way we learn maths is very bad and referring to a TED talk, i know that better ways exist, but i can't do nothing for that and my teacher can't do anything more. Things need to be changed but the persons who are able do do these changes don't know they. But later, i will apply all i learnt ...

[FRENCH] Un tiers de la production alimentaire est perdu ou gaspillé. Comment changer nos habitudes de consommation?
En fait, ce n'est pas tant les consommateurs que j'accuse mais l'éducation qu'on leur à donnée. La plupart des consommateurs sont très influençables et ont été habitués à un style de vie générant de très gros gaspillages, alors ils gaspillent. Mais si des puissances remettent en question ce mode de fonctionnement, alors ça peut changer.

[FRENCH] Un tiers de la production alimentaire est perdu ou gaspillé. Comment changer nos habitudes de consommation?
Je ne sais plus de qui est le talk, il prend l'exemple d'une souris d'ordi. Si on travaillait chacun de notre côté, on ne pourrait jamais en fabriquer, car on ne saurait pas à la fois produire les matières premières, mettre en forme, assembler, ... Donc au final, on aurait pu faire aucun progrès. Je sais pas si ça permettra à quelqu'un de le retrouver.

[French] Pourquoi la culture de l’Afrique noire est t-elle la moins diffusée au monde ?Le monde n'a t-il rien a apprendre de l'Afrique ?
Comme ça à déjà été dit, quelque soit le moyen utilisé, il s'agit d'une démarche volontaire de se renseigner sur une certaine culture. Il pourrait y avoir (et il y a déjà) des films africains, des troupes de théâtre, danseurs qui se produisent dans le monde entier, ... mais il faut à chaque fois que la personne veuille découvrir la culture. Les américains ont réglé ce problème en France en obligeant les cinémas français à diffuser un quota minimum de films de leur production, mais généralement, il est très difficile d'inciter les gens à découvrir d'autres cultures si ils n'en ont pas l'idée eux-même.
