  1. At last, we are one step closer to the truth. The reality of TED's existence has been confirmed. Now begins the long struggle to uncover who he really is, where and when he may exist in the space time continuum, and what his motives are. If we find the truth, it may herald a new era for humanity's knowledge and understanding.

  2. Thank you very much for creating such a platform where one can contribute great 'IDEA' ; as world is passing through in "critical and severe" situation, all over the world in every aspect of life. I have an 'IDEA' , how I can contribute. Thank you very much.

  3. This was great, thanks, I have been researching "what are the best practices of public speaking?" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Ganlizabetharn Glorious Gratification – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for discovering how to master public speaking without the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my partner got amazing success with it.
