a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/where-did-english-come-from-claire-bowern

When we talk about ‘English’, we often think of it as a single language. But what do the dialects spoken in dozens of countries around the world have in common with each other, or with the writings of Chaucer? Claire Bowern traces the language from the present day back to its ancient roots, showing how English has evolved through generations of speakers.

Lesson by Claire Bowern, animation by Patrick Smith.

Why is Modern Art so Bad?

a lecture in English

For two millennia, great artists set the standard for beauty. Now those standards are gone. Modern art is a competition between the ugly and the twisted; the most shocking wins. What happened? How did the beautiful come to be reviled and bad taste come to be celebrated? Renowned artist Robert Florczak explains the history and the mystery behind this change and how it can be stopped and even reversed.

What Every Graduate Should Know

a lecture in English

As a college graduate, the commencement speech is something that you can take with you into the world. America's universities have attracted some of the most successful and famous people to speak to graduates. Some commencement speakers deliver grand and inspiring speeches. Some don't say much. Dennis Prager has his own five-minute commencement speech he'd like to give to this year's college graduates. It's not the typical address, and not one you'd likely hear at most universities.

This Ancient Siberian Bacteria Could Hold the Secret to Immortality

a talk in English

After injecting himself with ancient bacteria found in Russian permafrost, Anatoli Brouchkov says he feels healthier than ever before. But the geocryologist admits that his self-administered treatment was a stunt; the real science happens in his lab at Moscow State University, where he analyzes strains of bacteria to tease out the keys to longevity. We caught up with Brouchkov while he was in Canada recently, investigating Arctic permafrost, to talk about everything from everlasting life and whether ancient bacteria could be the key to longevity to 3.5 million year old bacteria-infused martinis. Zazdarovje!

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/at-what-moment-are-you-dead-randall-hayes

For as far back as we can trace our existence, humans have been fascinated with death and resurrection. But is resurrection really possible? And what is the actual difference between a living creature and a dead body anyway? Randall Hayes delves into the scientific theories that seek to answer these age-old questions.

What do Charles Darwin, Michael Jordan, and Yoda have in common? They, like many other historical and fictive individuals, are bald. Scientists have long pondered, why do some people lose their hair, and how can we bring it back? Sarthak Sinha explores the basics of baldness.

The Neanderthal survival game

a lecture in English

For 150,000 years the Neanderthals thrived in Europe. Then, their territory grew smaller and by 35,000 years ago they had disappeared from the continent completely. In this Nature Video we re-play the Neanderthal survival game, with help from Tom Higham and team from the University of Oxford. As Neanderthal territory shrinks, see how new players with more sophisticated tools enter the game – and how our species eventually wins.

The poetry of programming | Linda Liukas | TEDxCERN

a talk in English

Linda Liukas believes that a movement in technology is already happening and that we need to engage everyone -- especially the next generation -- to take part. She wants to create a more diverse and colourful world of technology, starting with the poetry of code.

Linda Liukas is a programmer, storyteller and illustrator. Her children's book, Hello Ruby, raised a total of $380,000 on Kickstarter. She founded Rails Girls, which has organized workshops in over 230 cities, teaching the basics of programming to more than 10,000 women. Linda worked at Codeacademy, which she left to write stories that teach children about software and programming. She won the 2013 Ruby Hero prize and was named the Digital Champion of Finland by the EU Commissioner for Digital Agenda.

How Evolution works

a lecture in English

The mechanisms of evolution explained in one video.

The theory of evolution explains how the enormous variety of life could come into existence. How it is possible for primitive life forms to spawn the millions of different creatures, that exist today. Unfortunately, evolution is often misunderstood, because it's mechanisms seem counter intuitive. By using visualizations, infographics and appealing characters, the viewer is more likely to understand it the complex information. More than that, by presenting the information in an entertaining way, the information is more likely to sink in.

Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science.

We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see. If you have a suggestion for future videos or feedback, drop us a line! :)
