TED Talks for early May 2013

Here are a few more of my favorite TED talks; I recommend checking them out and hope you find them as interesting as I have.

Matt Ridley's talk is "When Ideas Have Sex".  www.rationaloptimist.com
The guy is talking about human progress, and the way humans share
ideas in a way that accelerates human progress; he talks about how
"ideas have sex", i.e., ideas mingle with each other, to produce new
things.  For him, it all comes down to the idea of exchange, that our
species is unique in seeking to exchange things with other humans.
That includes not just objects at a bazaar, but trading ideas, which
leads to more invention, which leads to the overall improvement of the
species.  I have to think about whether I buy it, but he sounds
impressive to me and I love the concept.  One idea he presents, by the
way, is to ask the audience how long you'd have to work to supply an
hour of reading light.  Hundreds of years ago, that reading light was
a candle and it would cost you about 6 hours of work.  Today, using a
compact flourescent light bulb it would cost about half a second of
work.  Amazing difference, and he explains why that is the case.

Tan Le does a cool demo of a headset that "reads your mind".  There's not a whole lot to say; it's just a really cool demo, and she truly seems to enjoy watching somebody new try the mind-reader device work for them.

It's Hans Rosling again, this time using storage cartons from Ikea to illustrate the wealth differences between the bottom billion humans and the rest of the world's population.  I've said it before: I'll watch any talk Rosling presents.  I always find them interesting and I think he uses visual presentation methods really well.

We spend the majority of our time hear talking about evening dresses uk, but what goes in them is just as important, and thankfully, some designers put as much care into the design of their wallets and small leather goods as they do into their big-name bags. Thankfully, Céline is among them; last week, we looked at the brand's Winter 2016 cheap football shirts, and today, we're here to do the same with the accessories. In case you've never considere Céline's small leather goods before, the brand's wallets, card cases and coin purses have the same spare, modern design sensibility as its bags. They're all highly functional, too, which is essential in these smaller pieces. Check them all out, along with their prices, below http://www.longchampoutletsshop.com.
