Episode Date
How "baby bonds" could help close the wealth gap | Darrick Hamilton
00:12:36
Hard work, resilience and grit lead to success, right? This narrative pervades the way we think, says economist Darrick Hamilton, but the truth is that our chances at economic security have less to do with what we do and more to do with the wealth position we're born into. Enter "baby bonds": trust accounts of up to $60,000 for every newborn, calibrated to the wealth of their family. Learn how this bold proposal could help us reduce inequality -- and give every child personal seed money for important things like going to college, buying a home or starting a business. "Without capital, inequality is locked in," Hamilton says. "When it comes to economic security, wealth is both the beginning and the end."<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/Zof35EkNGgw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The most important thing you can do to fight climate change: talk about it | Katharine Hayhoe
00:17:11
How do you talk to someone who doesn't believe in climate change? Not by rehashing the same data and facts we've been discussing for years, says climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe. In this inspiring, pragmatic talk, Hayhoe shows how the key to having a real discussion is to connect over shared values like family, community and religion -- and to prompt people to realize that they already care about a changing climate. "We can't give in to despair," she says. "We have to go out and look for the hope we need to inspire us to act -- and that hope begins with a conversation, today."<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/wElihH7-jz8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

"Top Knot Turn Up" / "Bad Habits" | Madame Gandhi and Amber Galloway-Gallego
00:12:47
"Music is so much more than sound simply traveling through the ear," says sign language interpreter Amber Galloway-Gallego.

How to be "Team Human" in the digital future | Douglas Rushkoff
00:12:23
Humans are no longer valued for our creativity, says media theorist Douglas Rushkoff -- in a world dominated by digital technology, we're now just valued for our data. In a passionate talk, Rushkoff urges us to stop using technology to optimize people for the market and start using it to build a future centered on our pre-digital values of connection, creativity and respect. "Join 'Team Human.' Find the others," he says. "Together let's make the future that we always wanted."<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/C6kzTrRNuk0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How to find the person who can help you get ahead at work | Carla Harris
00:13:23
The workplace is often presented as a meritocracy, where you can succeed by putting your head down and working hard. Wall Street veteran Carla Harris learned early in her career that this a myth. The key to actually getting ahead? Get a sponsor: a person who will speak on your behalf in the top-level, closed-door meetings you're not invited to (yet). Learn how to identify and develop a productive sponsor relationship in this candid, powerful talk.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/6riPzDOfLCc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Why you should treat the tech you use at work like a colleague | Nadjia Yousif
00:11:36
Imagine your company hires a new employee and then everyone just ignores them, day in and day out, while they sit alone at their desk getting paid to do nothing. This situation actually happens all the time -- when companies invest millions of dollars in new tech tools only to have frustrated employees disregard them, says Nadjia Yousif. In this fun and practical talk, she offers advice on how to better collaborate with the technologies in your workplace -- by treating them like colleagues.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/tk9aqFjtOGM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

3 kinds of bias that shape your worldview | J. Marshall Shepherd
00:12:21
What shapes our perceptions (and misperceptions) about science? In an eye-opening talk, meteorologist J. Marshall Shepherd explains how confirmation bias, the Dunning-Kruger effect and cognitive dissonance impact what we think we know -- and shares ideas for how we can replace them with something much more powerful: knowledge.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/TEr_vRkLbfQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How storytelling helps parents in prison stay connected to their kids | Alan Crickmore
00:15:28
When a parent is sent to prison, the unintended victims of their crimes are their own children -- without stability and support, kids are at higher risk for mental health and development issues. In a heartfelt talk, Alan Crickmore explains how the charity Storybook Dads is keeping families connected through the simple act of storytelling.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/QvIqRLuyM3c" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The work that makes all other work possible | Ai-jen Poo
00:16:01
Domestic workers are entrusted with the most precious aspects of people's lives -- they're the nannies, the elder-care workers and the house cleaners who do the work that makes all other work possible. Too often, they're invisible, taken for granted or dismissed as "help," yet they continue to do their wholehearted best for the families and homes in their charge. In this sensational talk, activist Ai-Jen Poo shares her efforts to secure equal rights and fair wages for domestic workers and explains how we can all be inspired by them. "Think like a domestic worker who shows up and cares no matter what," she says.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/uo0o3aARTAo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How to motivate people to do good for others | Erez Yoeli
00:12:22
How can we get people to do more good: to go to the polls, give to charity, conserve resources or just generally act better towards others? MIT research scientist Erez Yoeli shares a simple checklist for harnessing the power of reputations -- or our collective desire to be seen as generous and kind instead of selfish -- to motivate people to act in the interest of others. Learn more about how small changes to your approach to getting people to do good could yield surprising results.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/vTnbCXpoBxo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

3 questions to ask yourself about everything you do | Stacey Abrams
00:12:38
How you respond after setbacks is what defines your character. Stacey Abrams was the first black woman in the history of the United States to be nominated by a major party for governor -- she lost that hotly contested race, but as she says: the only choice is to move forward. In an electrifying talk, she shares the lessons she learned from her campaign for governor of Georgia, some advice on how to change the world -- and a few hints at her next steps. "Be aggressive about your ambition," Abrams says.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/Ac34p0-zXgI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Confessions of a recovering micromanager | Chieh Huang
00:12:07
Think about the most tired you've ever been at work. It probably wasn't when you stayed late or came home from a road trip -- chances are it was when you had someone looking over your shoulder, watching your each and every move. "If we know that micromanagement isn't really effective, why do we do it?" asks entrepreneur Chieh Huang. In a funny talk packed with wisdom and humility, Huang shares the cure for micromanagement madness -- and how to foster innovation and happiness at work.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/q4ol6tzWNPQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Me Too is a movement, not a moment | Tarana Burke
00:16:15
In 2006, Tarana Burke was consumed by a desire to do something about the sexual violence she saw in her community. She took out a piece of paper, wrote "Me Too" across the top and laid out an action plan for a movement centered on the power of empathy between survivors. More than a decade later, she reflects on what has since become a global movement -- and makes a powerful call to dismantle the power and privilege that are building blocks of sexual violence. "We owe future generations nothing less than a world free of sexual violence," she says. "I believe we can build that world."<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/zfAghfli2m8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The story of Marvel's first queer Latina superhero | Gabby Rivera
00:11:16
With Marvel's "America Chavez," Gabby Rivera wrote a new kind of superhero -- one who can punch portals into other dimensions while also embracing her gentle, goofy, soft side. In a funny, personal talk, Rivera shares how her own childhood as a queer Puerto Rican in the Bronx informed this new narrative -- and shows images from the comic book that reveal what happens when a superhero embraces her humanity. As she says: "That myth of having to go it alone and be tough is not serving us."<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/ua43oMSApuc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

100 solutions to reverse global warming | Chad Frischmann
00:17:01
What if we took out more greenhouse gases than we put into the atmosphere? This hypothetical scenario, known as "drawdown," is our only hope of averting climate disaster, says strategist Chad Frischmann. In a forward-thinking talk, he shares solutions to climate change that exist today -- conventional tactics like the use of renewable energy and better land management as well as some lesser-known approaches, like changes to food production, better family planning and the education of girls. Learn more about how we can reverse global warming and create a world where regeneration, not destruction, is the rule.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/L9sIKEiBGQM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

When technology can read minds, how will we protect our privacy? | Nita Farahany
00:13:04
Tech that can decode your brain activity and reveal what you're thinking and feeling is on the horizon, says legal scholar and ethicist Nita Farahany. What will it mean for our already violated sense of privacy? In a cautionary talk, Farahany warns of a society where people are arrested for merely thinking about committing a crime (like in "Minority Report") and private interests sell our brain data -- and makes the case for a right to cognitive liberty that protects our freedom of thought and self-determination.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/q4c95X_yR6s" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The radical possibilities of man-made DNA | Floyd E. Romesberg
00:13:56
Every cell that's ever lived has been the result of the four-letter genetic alphabet: A, T, C and G -- the basic units of DNA. But now that's changed. In a visionary talk, synthetic biologist Floyd E. Romesberg introduces us to the first living organisms created with six-letter DNA -- the four natural letters plus two new man-made ones, X and Y -- and explores how this breakthrough could challenge our basic understanding of nature's design.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/UjkjkoB7ugs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Where do your online returns go? | Aparna Mehta
00:07:38
Do you ever order clothes online in different sizes and colors, just to try them on and then send back what doesn't work? Aparna Mehta used to do this all time, until she one day asked herself: Where do all these returned clothes go? In an eye-opening talk, she reveals the unseen world of "free" online returns -- which, instead of ending up back on the shelf, are sent to landfills by the billions of pounds each year -- and shares a plan to help put an end to this growing environmental catastrophe.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/HmllX5UkJdU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How my mom inspired my approach to the cello | Paul Rucker
00:04:11
Multidisciplinary artist and TED Fellow Paul Rucker has developed his own style of cello; he puts chopsticks between his strings, uses the instrument as a drum and experiments with electronics like loop pedals. Moving between reflective storytelling and performance, Rucker shares his inspiration -- and definitely doesn't play the same old Bach.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/9huz5qGr0s4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How video games turn players into storytellers | David Cage

How a fleet of wind-powered drones is changing our understanding of the ocean | Sebastien de Halleux
00:12:41

A librarian's case against overdue book fines | Dawn Wacek
00:13:53
Libraries have the power to create a better world; they connect communities, promote literacy and spark lifelong learners. But there's one thing that keeps people away: the fear of overdue book fines. In this thought-provoking talk, librarian Dawn Wacek makes the case that fines don't actually do what we think they do. What if your library just ... stopped asking for them altogether?<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/uyClhRkh0w4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Is civility a sham? | Teresa Bejan
00:13:53
What exactly is civility, and what does it require? In a talk packed with historical insights, political theorist Teresa Bejan explains how civility has been used as both the foundation of tolerant societies and as a way for political partisans to silence and dismiss opposing views. Bejan suggests that we should instead try for "mere civility": the virtue of being able to disagree fundamentally with others without destroying the possibility of a common life tomorrow. (This talk contains mature language.)<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/EukfUw4sarE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

My journey to thank all the people responsible for my morning coffee | AJ Jacobs
00:15:29
Author AJ Jacobs embarked on a quest with a deceptively simple idea at its heart: to personally thank every person who helped make his morning cup of coffee. More than one thousand "thank yous" later, Jacobs reflects on the globe-trotting journey that ensued -- and shares the life-altering wisdom he picked up along the way. "I discovered that my coffee would not be possible without hundreds of people I take for granted," Jacobs says.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/NOMkx6GHLFU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

What to trust in a "post-truth" world | Alex Edmans
00:17:47
Only if you are truly open to the possibility of being wrong can you ever learn, says researcher Alex Edmans. In an insightful talk, he explores how confirmation bias -- the tendency to only accept information that supports your personal beliefs -- can lead you astray on social media, in politics and beyond, and offers three practical tools for finding evidence you can actually trust. (Hint: appoint someone to be the devil's advocate in your life.)<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/3gVauWVZUuI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The case for a decentralized internet | Tamas Kocsis
00:10:00

The global goals we've made progress on -- and the ones we haven't | Michael Green
00:14:11
"We are living in a world that is tantalizingly close to ensuring that no one need die of hunger or malaria or diarrhea," says economist Michael Green. To help spur progress, back in 2015 the United Nations drew up a set of 17 goals around important factors like health, education and equality. In this data-packed talk, Green shares his analysis on the steps each country has (or hasn't) made toward these Sustainable Development Goals -- and offers new ideas on what needs to change so we can achieve them.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/J1EFpfLnkI4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How kids can help design cities | Mara Mintzer
00:14:24
Adults tend to think of kids as "future citizens" -- their ideas and opinions will matter someday, just not today. But kids make up a quarter of the population, so shouldn't they have a say in what the world they'll inherit will look like? Urban planner Mara Mintzer shares what happened when she and her team asked kids to help design a park in Boulder, Colorado -- and how it revealed an important blind spot in how we construct the built environment. "If we aren't including children in our planning, who else aren't we including?" Mintzer asks.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/1Tu5VM9VPuA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How I accidentally changed the way movies get made | Franklin Leonard
00:16:20
How does Hollywood choose what stories get told on-screen? Too often, it's groupthink informed by a narrow set of ideas about what sells at the box office. As a producer, Franklin Leonard saw too many great screenplays never get made because they didn't fit the mold. So he started the Black List, an anonymous email that shared his favorite screenplays and asked: Why aren't we making these movies? Learn the origin story of some of your favorite films with this fascinating insider view of the movie business.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/Hs8YKv2EJPU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Why I have coffee with people who send me hate mail | Özlem Cekic
00:15:21
Özlem Cekic's email inbox has been full of hate mail since 2007, when she won a seat in the Danish Parliament -- becoming the first female Muslim to do so. At first she just deleted the emails, dismissing them as the work of fanatics, until one day a friend made an unexpected suggestion: to reach out to the hate mail writers and invite them to meet for coffee. Hundreds of "dialogue coffee" meetings later, Cekic shares how face-to-face conversation can be one of the most powerful forces to disarm hate -- and challenges us all to engage with people we disagree with.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/lDACD5Qb8eM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The case for curiosity-driven research | Suzie Sheehy
00:09:19
Seemingly pointless scientific research can lead to extraordinary discoveries, says physicist Suzie Sheehy. In a talk and tech demo, she shows how many of our modern technologies are tied to centuries-old, curiosity-driven experiments -- and makes the case for investing in more to arrive at a deeper understanding of the world.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/nyiRtBLRT6Y" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

What if your attachment to being a "good" person is holding you back from actually becoming a better person? In this accessible talk, social psychologist Dolly Chugh explains the puzzling psychology of ethical behavior -- like why it's hard to spot your biases and acknowledge mistakes -- and shows how the path to becoming better starts with owning your mistakes.

What everyday citizens can do to claim power on the internet | Fadi Chehadé and Bryn Freedman
00:08:34
Technology architect Fadi Chehadé helped set up the infrastructure that makes the internet work -- essential things like the domain name system and IP address standards. Today he's focused on finding ways for society to benefit from technology. In a crisp conversation with Bryn Freedman, curator of the TED Institute, Chehadé discusses the ongoing war between the West and China over artificial intelligence, how tech companies can become stewards of the power they have to shape lives and economies and what everyday citizens can do to claim power on the internet.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/0r4VA_bTvJA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How isolation fuels opioid addiction | Rachel Wurzman
00:18:31
What do Tourette syndrome, heroin addiction and social media obsession all have in common? They converge in an area of the brain called the striatum, says neuroscientist Rachel Wurzman -- and this critical discovery could reshape our understanding of the opioid crisis. Sharing insights from her research, Wurzman shows how social isolation contributes to relapse and overdose rates and reveals how meaningful human connection could offer a potentially powerful source of recovery.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TEDTalks_video/~4/FXoYIBJmU1E" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
