    How to Change Careers when You’re Lost | Felicia Ricci | TEDxYale

    Translator: Naoko Fujii Reviewer: Denise RQ Hi, everyone. I’m Felicia, that says there. This is really exciting. I actually took professor Chun’s class when I was at Yale. He is awesome. So, it’s honored to be here. The past three years of my life have been a whirlwind. I moved three times, I wrote two books, I published one of them, and I actually started my own business. Three years ago, my life looked incredibly different. I was living in New York City, and I was working full time as an actor. I had an agent, I was a member of the Actors Union, and I have just come off…

    Hip-Hop & Shakespeare? Akala at TEDxAldeburgh

    Translator: Judith Matz Reviewer: Sebastian Betti Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. If I could request the resetting of the clock, it’s on at four minutes at the moment, I presume from the one before… Fantastic! Okay! So, my name is Akala, I’m from the Hip Hop Shakespeare Company. And before we get into the philosophy of our work, what that means, what the intention is behind it, I’m going to challenge you guys to a little bit of a pop quiz. And we’ve done this pop quiz quite a few times, we’ll talk about it after we do it. I’m gonna simply tell you some quotes. One line quotes, taken…

    Neuroscience, Jungian Type and Mathematics–Insights into Student Struggles: Jane Kise at TEDxEnola

    Translator: Mohand Habchi Reviewer: Reiko Bovee Thank you. In the small but worldwide communities of the Jungian type, I’m enough of an expert that I get to write books and speak at a lot of conferences. And in my formal life, as a financial analyst I got to use math everyday. For about the last 15 years I’ve combined all of that helping as many teachers as possible meet the needs of more students in their classroom. So what’s Jungian type? How many of you have taken the MBTI, the Myers-Briggs? In most rooms, most people have. Some even remember their four letter code. A few of those remember what…

    Eat for real change | Dr Joanna McMillan | TEDxMacquarieUniversity

    Translator: Eugenia Mársico Reviewer: Silvia Fornasiero How would you feel if I was to tell you that nutrition science has come such a long way that in my hand I have some pretty special pills. You’re never going to have to eat again, You won’t be eating any meals, all you need to do is take one of these pills breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of your life and it’s going to give you the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. It is going to give you the number of calories or kilojoules that you need to stay at exactly the perfect weight for your body. It’s…

    The Power of belief — mindset and success | Eduardo Briceno | TEDxManhattanBeach

    Translator: asma youssef Reviewer: Denise RQ What do you think is the key to achieve our goals, our success? Some people suggest things like hard work, focus, persistence. But research shows these are all by-products of something else, something much more powerful that we can all develop. It is this very special something that is really critical to success, and is what I am here to discuss with you today. Someone who has achieved great success is Josh Waitzkin, a chess international master and the subject of the movie “Searching for Bobby Fischer”. Nobody has won all the national chess championships that Josh has. But even more impressive, when he…

    Can you solve the secret sauce riddle? – Alex Gendler

    One of the top chefs from Pasta Palace has been kidnapped by operatives from Burger Bazaar hoping to learn the location of their secret sauce recipe. Little do they know that a third party— Sausage Saloon— has sent you to take advantage of the situation. As their top spy, your skills range from infiltration and subterfuge, to safecracking and reading faces for signs of deception. You’ve tracked the captors to where they’re holding the chef prisoner. From your hiding spot, you can see him on the other side of the glass, while in front of you an interrogator wearing headphones speaks into a microphone. “We already know the recipe is…

    Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a model. | Cameron Russell

    Translator: Joseph Geni Reviewer: Morton Bast Hi. My name is Cameron Russell, and for the last little while, I’ve been a model. Actually, for 10 years. And I feel like there’s an uncomfortable tension in the room right now because I should not have worn this dress. (Laughter) So luckily, I brought an outfit change. This is the first outfit change on the TED stage, so you guys are pretty lucky to witness it, I think. If some of the women were really horrified when I came out, you don’t have to tell me now, but I’ll find out later on Twitter. (Laughter) I’d also note that I’m quite privileged…

    How to think, not what to think | Jesse Richardson | TEDxBrisbane

    Translator: Leonardo Silva Reviewer: Cristina Bufi-Pöcksteiner We can probably all agree that education is important, right? That’s pretty universal. But I want you to think back to your time in school and see if you can remember something. See if you can remember a time when you were actually taught how to think. Well, the lesson you were being given was specifically teaching little you as a kid, with big, wide eyes and a sponge-like brain, how to go about the business of thinking. Now, if your experience was anything like mine, you’ll probably struggle to think of a single instance when that occurred. And when you think about it,…

    TEDxTerryTalks – Laura Bain – Living with Bipolar Type II

    Translator: Angela W Reviewer: Denise RQ I guess I should start by telling you a little bit about who Laura is. She’s a very passionate person. And she loves science very much, and loves to talk about it all the time, much to her friends’ dismay. She’s also a sailor. She used to be the registrar of the UBC Sailing Club. So, other things– she’s a daughter, she’s a sister to three big brothers. She’s also an auntie to the cutest little niece ever. She’s bipolar. Bipolar is a brain disorder which causes unusual shifts in a person’s mood, energy, or ability to function. It’s unlike the normal ups and…
