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)

  1. What is it about American women, and their horrible sense of clothing? They seem so intelligent, but where is their sense of aesthetics? Compare them one time to European women of the same social status. European women have standards. American women seem to have no care at all concerning how they dress in public!

  2. Freedom from crippling diseases is the most important issue facing modern science. We have developed new forms of technology which have allowed us to explore the Universe, and understand how life systems work. Yet, the human condition is one still plagued by rampant disease. Micro technology must be, and is, being fully integrated into human biology. Today we may wear technology. Tomorrow, our technology, and our biology will become fully merged. Humankind has achieved amazing feats with technology, but we have made little progress in shielding the human body from hundreds of dreadful diseases. The Human body is highly flawed, and vulnerable to infection by hundreds of parasites, and other afflictions. Protecting, and enhancing human health and stamina are vital fields of research. No task facing science can be given higher priority! This technology must needs also include AI. There is no need to fear that computers will "take over", because this new science will be fully integrated into the human body and nervous system.

  3. What a great gift you have shared with everyone! Your total caring and nurturing of every cell in our bodies, gives a total new Outlook towards humanity! Thank you for all the joy , laughter and peace of mind. God be with you. The light shines through you for all to see. For all humanity: I Thank

  4. My mom’s been telling me ‘we grew up in such bad conditions with all these backwards ideas on nutrition, we used to take bread to school, how come you grew up in a first world country with parents with all the knowledge and you’re shorter than me? Everyone in my family is tall”
