Yuval Noah Harari’s Future Outlook with Dangers to Beware

Yuval Noah Harari, the author of Sapiens, talks in details about the future and the dangers to beware, in what is most convincing set of future outlooks I have heard to date. It’s different from others’ future outlooks I have heard, so it’s not like competing outlooks of who is right and who is wrong. However, for what Yuval covers compared to what others covered in their talks, Yuval convinced me more in the others did.

Listen to this TEDInterview podcast for all the details and see if you agree.

A New, Better, and More Correct Story for Depression

Depression is a big topic with a lot of myths, or just outright incorrect information, about it.

TED 2011 Ads Worth Spreading Winners Far Better Than Super Bowl Collection!

The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are more super than the ones I saw for the Super Bowl! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”? Here are the ads below, in no particular order.

The ads tend to be longer than the Super Bowl ones, where time is so expensive, though the Chrysler Born of Fire and Volkswagen’s The Force are both here. Hey, the cream does rise to the top no matter where you put it. But you know, if ads were this good, I wouldn’t care how long they went on. They’d be better than most things I’d ever find on television!

Some of these ads are also not widely seen, especially in North America, because they come from the world over and not all of these ad makers have money for American television time, much less Super Bowl. However, as a whole collection, I’d take this over the top Super Bowl ads I’ve seen in any year!

This is part 1 of 3 since there are too many commercials to put into one blog post. The link to Part 2 is at at the end.

Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!
