Awesome Man; He's Portraying a Christian and Has no Lifestyle resembling a Christians=Bigamist,is that the word?Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" Other than that, he likes Mentoring Young Boys
It's very good to know, especially when all the news is bad about seemingly everything, that there are people with amazingly interesting ideas out there. Public Television should replace their depressing oldies concerts with TED talks. Alternate the talks with Nature, Nova, and re-runs of the Muppets. I'd contribute to PBS again.
Interesting talks across a whole spectrum of ideas. Lots of worthwhile stuff -- at a different pace than most other internet-bred videos. This stuff is sometimes splashy, sometimes shiny, but frequently smart, motivated, and challenging. (p.s. I wish hunch could recommend which TED talks to see next, too...)
This site is a great one to visit when you're looking for a little inspiration. The talks are often motivating, presented by people full of innovative, ingenious ideas. They offer insightful perspectives on life, work, love, creativity, and more.
There are a lot of cool talks. Check this one, www.ted.com/talks/christopher_mcdougall_are_we_born_to_ru.... Enjoy.
This is a forum for big thinkers, opinion leaders. and movers/shakers. Very entertaining. I visit this site at least once a week. The short videos are digestable and easily absorbed. But it doesn't make them any less powerful. The big ideas are crystallized to their essence.
Who says the internet is full of sh*te? TED.com is one of the most brilliant and informative sites out there. If you're as sick and tired of all the crap on TV, do like I do and try to enrich your mind by watching and listening to some of the brightest, bravest, most progressive, or most enchanting minds out there.
It's a great conference! Consistently great speakers and a much-emulated format. Even if you don't attend, you can see all the talks online.
Cons: Expensive to attend, and there are rarely space available. You need to be invited, which leads to charges of elitism.
