Unanswered - Mysteries from the Mahabharata | Christopher Charles Doyle | TEDxYouth@NMS

“Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.” Devoured by his curiosity, Christopher C. Doyle, in his talk, constantly questioned the stated facts of history and literature. He tried to answer the unanswered questions regarding the Mahabharata and other histories of the world through scientific explanations and reasoning. Christopher C. Doyle is an author who transports the reader into a fascinating world where ancient secrets buried in legends blend with science and history to create a gripping story. His first bestseller ‘The Mahabharata Secret’ was a great success and now has a trilogy under its label. Mr. Doyle is one of the first Indian writers to upload an online novella for his readers.

Everything is Connected -- Here's How: | Tom Chi | TEDxTaipei

Tom Chi認為「萬物都有相關聯」或「事出必有因」的說法,其實不只是純粹哲學的形上思考,而是有各種科學根據證明這個理論的。而找出這個現象象徵的意義是什麼,或許就能解開人類之所以存在的秘密....? Tom Chi has worked in a wide range of roles from astrophysical researcher to Fortune 500 consultant to corporate executive developing new hardware/software products and services. He has played a significant role in established projects with global reach (Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Search), and scaled new projects from conception to significance (Yahoo Answers from 0 to 90 million users). His current focus is delving into human development issues with social entrepreneurs around the globe, rebooting the fundamental frameworks of entrepreneurship itself, and teaching a limited numb 當試圖定義這個時代創業意義的Voltaic Labs,碰上以創新和新穎計畫聞名的Google X,他們的共通點,就是Tom Chi。 他是天文學家、是網路與軟體工程師、是科學家、創新大師。他曾說:「我們不能忘記跨出書本,改變世界!」藉由Tom Chi的快速原型設計(rapid prototyping),他成功地在網路時代領導Yahoo從0到9千萬用戶,接著創造了Google Glass,近年更開啟Google自動駕駛車計畫。 現在他延伸設計思考的專長,研究人類發展的社會議題,並與全世界各地的社會創業家合作與腦力激盪,持續找出改變世界的各種方法。 This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

What is the best diet for humans? | Eran Segal | TEDxRuppin

Prof. Eran Segal presented conclusions from the research on the TEDxRuppin stage and made us question common dietary beliefs. For additional information see http://genie.weizmann.ac.il New research led by Prof. Eran Segals and Dr. Elinavs research unit indicates a drastic change in blood sugar levels between two individuals on identical diets - this may explain why some struggle to lose weight while others, on the same diet, stay lean and fit. The scientists even developed an algorithm that can calculate ones blood level based on his or her biology and lifestyle.

What a 15-year-old meth addict taught me about leadership | Brian Fretwell | TEDxBoise

How do you lead someone who knows what they need to do to change their life but—despite all your help—isn’t going to do it? Brian Fretwell was confronted with this scenario repeatedly during his time as a teacher in the chemical addictions unit of a juvenile corrections facility. The honesty of a 15-year-old meth addict, and the wisdom of a mentor, reframed Brian’s definition and practice of leadership. Brian Fretwell helps people realize their value. He began his professional career as a teacher in juvenile corrections, empowering disenfranchised kids to do things they didn’t believe they could. From the Australian Outback to the Arctic Circle, today Brian teaches individuals, teams, and companies how to draw out their hidden potential. He got an MBA, ran a 100-mile ultra-marathon, overcame his fear of flying, and wrote a book because he didn’t think he could do any of them—and being a hypocrite isn’t his style.

A mountain-sized telescope, under a mile of ice | Jenni Adams | TEDxChristchurch

Ice Cube is, quite literally, the coolest telescope in the world: the size of a mountain, buried in the crystal clear ice of Antarctica, it captures the interactions of the highest-energy neutrinos in the universe. In this fascinating talk, Dr. Jenni Adams talks about where these neutrinos might come from -- and why we should care. Jenni Adams is an Associate Professor in the Physics and Astronomy department at the University of Canterbury. Her research interest is in astroparticle physics: the interface between astrophysics and particle physics, where the goal is to learn about the fundamental constituents of matter using the universe as a laboratory. She earned a BSc Hons from the University of Canterbury and DPhil in theoretical physics from Oxford University, where she was awarded a Rhodes scholarship to study in 1992. She then became a Post Doctoral Fellow at Uppsala University in Sweden, before returning to the University of Canterbury in 1998.

Following more than a decade of international and national planning and an intense week of on-ice weather delays, Priscu led the field team successfully drilled through the overlying ice sheet and sampled directly the waters and sediments of a lake hidden beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. The groundbreaking exploration of Antarctica's subglacial environment marks the beginning of a new era in polar science, opening the window for future interdisciplinary scientific investigations of one of Earth's last unexplored frontiers.
