Why an ancient Mesopotamian tablet is key to our future learning | Tiffany Jenkins | TEDxSquareMile

Translator: Tanya Cushman Reviewer: Peter van de Ven I am going to talk about something like this. It’s a dusty fragment from a clay tablet.

Gravitational wave astronomy — opening a new window on the Universe | Martin Hendry | TEDxGlasgow

Translator: Mile Živković Reviewer: Emma Gon There’s a classic urban myth which says that if everyone in China jumps up in the air all together, then the Earth will be rocked off its axis.

What’s wrong with me? Absolutely nothing | Gabi Ury | TEDxSanDiego

Translator: Mark Lovett Reviewer: Denise RQ Has anyone here ever done a plank before? (Cheers) And when I say plank, I don’t mean where you get on the ground, lie down on random things, and take pictures for Instagram.

Translator: Ellen Maloney Reviewer: Samuel Titera I’ve something very important to tell you today. I’m so glad I was invited to this particular TEDx meeting.

Build don’t break relationships with communication – connect the dots | Amy Scott | TEDxQueenstown

Translator: Tanya Cushman Reviewer: Peter van de Ven Wow. Thanks. What if your natural communication style is crippling your relationships?

Your communication style… Read More »
