If you want to achieve your goals, don't focus on them: Reggie Rivers at TEDxCrestmoorParkED

a talk in English

Former Denver Broncos running back Reggie Rivers discusses how focusing on your goals is the one sure way NOT to achieve them. With humor and insight he goes on to explain how focusing on your behaviors is how you achieve goals.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

How computers translate human language - Ioannis Papachimonas

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-computers-translate-human-language-ioannis-papachimonas

Is a universal translator possible in real life? We already have many programs that claim to be able to take a word, sentence, or entire book in one language and translate it into almost any other. The reality, however, is a bit more complicated. Ioannis Papachimonas shows how these machine translators work, and explains why they often get a bit mixed up.

What is a calorie? - Emma Bryce

a lecture in English

We hear about calories all the time: How many calories are in this cookie? How many are burned by doing 100 jumping jacks, or long-distance running, or fidgeting? But what is a calorie, really? And how many of them do we actually need? Emma Bryce explains how a few different factors should go into determining the recommended amount for each person.

America's Debt Crisis Explained

a lecture in English

Fact: America's national debt stands at $17 trillion. That's a tough number to grasp. Most people will never come close to making $1 million in any given year. How can we understand the magnitude of the hole our country is in? Well, imagine you owed your credit card company $200,000. On top of that you have to pay them about $4,000 per year in interest. You are bringing in $150,000 per year, but you are spending way more than that. How are you going to ever pay back that $200,000 debt? And what happens if you default? Well, that is America today. The problem is clear. And we brought Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, to propose a solution.

Buster Keaton - The Art of the Gag

a lecture in English

Before Edgar Wright and Wes Anderson, before Chuck Jones and Jackie Chan, there was Buster Keaton, one of the founding fathers of visual comedy. And nearly 100 years after he first appeared onscreen, we’re still learning from him. Today, I’d like to talk about the artistry (and the thinking) behind his gags.

Lower Taxes, Higher Revenue

a lecture in English

Should tax rates be higher? It's the million dollar question! Up? Down? No change? Where in the world should taxes go? In election years, the question of tax rates fills the airwaves. In non-election years, the question of tax rates, again, fills the airwaves. So what's the answer? UCLA Professor of Economics Tim Groseclose explains his research on the topic. Basically, there's a certain point at which higher tax rates actually reduce the amount of revenue the government collects. What's that point? When are tax rates too high? Learn a valuable lesson in economics, and public policy.

What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-are-the-universal-human-rights-benedetta-berti

The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights.

Don't Just Learn To Code, Learn To Create | Justin Richards | TEDxYouth@ColumbiaSC

a talk in English

Students around the world are told they must ‘Learn to Code!’ This certainly
sounds great, but why should you learn to code? Will it really help you accomplish
your personal goals or land your dream job? We’ll see how learning to code is only a
part of joining the digital revolution, but we’ll go further to explore how you can
harness technology to your unique way of impacting the world. Learn how you can
shape the future by not just learning to code, but learning to create.

Justin Richards is the Founder/CEO of Youth Digital that has taught over 40,000 students how to create with technology. Justin leads a team of 40 passionate people in delivering amazing technology courses for students in over 100 countries. Students as young as age 8 learn how to create everything from apps to mods to fashion collections.

Prior to starting Youth Digital at age 22, he taught technology courses to students in downtown St. Louis. Justin grew up helping his family start computer schools in Romanian orphanages and taught himself to develop and design as a hobby, before turning that passion into Youth Digital. In the end, Youth Digital is a place that Justin would have loved as a child.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
