Why do blood types matter? - Natalie S. Hodge

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/why-do-blood-types-matter-natalie-s-hodge

It’s often said that despite humanity’s many conflicts, we all bleed the same blood. It’s a nice thought, but not quite accurate. In fact, our blood comes in a few different varieties. Natalie S. Hodge defines the four major blood types and sheds light on why some bloods can mix while others cannot.

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-do-you-know-whom-to-trust-ram-neta

We believe a lot of things because we've been told - from our personal acquaintances and also experts. With so many belief systems being passed to us, how do we know whom to trust? Using contemporary examples, Ram Neta explains when listening to experts is a good idea...and when it's not.

RSA Replay: People Shaped Localism: Making It Real

a talk in English

Individuals, communities and councils are playing an increasingly important role in shaping their local public services. Our panel will discuss how a dispersal of power and new forms of local engagement are essential in promoting democratic renewal and community resilience.

The UK is in the midst of a 'devolution revolution' - we are witnessing the increasing decentralisation of governance as Westminster grants ever more powers to regional and local bodies. In political debate, the great promise of devolution is said to be economic growth, as exemplified by the birth of the Northern Powerhouse.

However, in the rush for growth, there is a danger of overlooking other measures of success, and thereby squandering the greater social and political opportunities offered by decentralised power.

Economic connectivity without social connectivity is hollow. How can we ensure devolved governance strengthens democracy by delivering a fairer dispersal of power and promoting greater civic engagement? And how can devolution create a localism that is truly 'people shaped', in which decision-making is determined by the character, identity, assets and needs of specific communities?

As the RSA launches its report on the opportunities and challenges of bringing citizens more fully into local service design and governance, we bring together a panel of experts to explore ambitions for locally driven change.

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-benefits-of-good-posture-murat-dalkinic

Has anyone ever told you, “Stand up straight!” or scolded you for slouching at a family dinner? Comments like that might be annoying—but they’re not wrong. Your posture is the foundation for every movement your body makes and can determine how well your body adapts to the stresses on it. Murat Dalkilinç gives the pros of good posture.

The Beginning of Everything -- The Big Bang

a lecture in English

How did everything get started?

Has the universe a beginning or was it here since forever? Well, evidence suggests that there was indeed a starting point to this universe we are part of right now. But how can this be? How can something come from nothing? And what about time? We don't have all the answers yet so let's talk about what we know.

Also, we try to make this one not depressing. Tell us if we succeeded.

www.Kurzgesagt.org

BY THE WAY. We have a website now. We'll try to blog from time to time, show you guys how we make the videos and give more insight to our process. Also we sell stuff. We really don't know where this whole kurzgesagt stuff leads us. But we are really thankful for all the attention and positive feedback and yeah, maybe we can make this our jobs -- it would be pretty nice and we could do more content each month. But we'll see. For now, thank you very much everybody for making this little adventure possible.

Thomas did an aweful good job again. :)

Next Video: April. (as soon as we can but we kind of have to make a living and visit college) Topic: Nuclear Energy (probably, if we finish the research in time -- if not something else)

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