Hanna Rosin: New data on the rise of women
I am happy and amazed by my partner (male) with his openness and simpleness as I sometime got sick and tired of my (female)own complexity and indirectness. We are equally intelligent and in the same time equally inferior with the things we are not familiar with. And we appreciate differences. and one day I hoe the time will come that we truly appreciate our differences in many aspect which gives tacit taste in our lives. I like this talk as we (female) still need to claim for our brilliances to where that are not YET recognized. but one day it will come that we no longer have to claim out brilliantness because it is so obvious. the bottom line is we are all equal with differences to have more essence in own lives and we all need each other to live our lives fully.

Elif Shafak: The politics of fiction
We form or being formed by several layer of identities. Nationality, religion, society we belong, family, gender, occupation, or just being who we are. Identity make us explicit, make us feel safe and not alone, protect us from 'the others' and vise versa. Being identified as.... is not bad thing. But on top of that we all should realize that we all are individual being with an unique mind and respect our own self being,...even that would make me vague and makes me feel terribly lonely. Therefore again to seek for an identity. Discovering me and my identity will circulate and that makes life more interesting. Thanks Elif, a beautiful talk.

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: Inside a school for suicide bombers
Zdanek, I agree what you say and why you believe they cannot be compared, but I still see that they are similar except the age of students. Point is that our cognition is limited and we tend to think within that limited cognition. Education will teach you a critical thinking but in fact the world affair is so complicated you cannot know all to consider in your critical thinking so that you are force to limit which information you decided to take it in. I wonder if any mother in US really agree their kids to join the army if they know that they might loose them. I wonder why so many US solder experienced war commit suicide if they have had known what they ought to experience in a war. Regards

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: Inside a school for suicide bombers
Hi Zdenek, I deeply agree with the importance of the education which able us to put ourselves in others shoe. What we get from the universal education may unify us ... but our interpretation may differ from our own experiences. depending on what we 'want' to believe or not to In a way we are automatically selecting/filtering the information and determining the way which is comfortable for ourselves. What do you determine the word 'brainwash'... It is rather difficult to put line from where you call influences and from where you call brainwash. the differences in term may only exist in your own mind or what majority believes ...

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: Inside a school for suicide bombers
Hi Zdenek, I am not saying that the are the same but there are some similarity if you take off your social norm. the determination of the real education which we believe may only be valid in the society who share the same value. I am not speaking for these Taliban people but what if they really believe that they are giving those kids a real education. When we live in a society we are made to act, feel in a certain way. Education open your eyes but also narrow your sight. Marketing tactics may be the key to recruit those people by brain washing/pressing psychologically without them realizing that themselves.
