Majority of people in this world believes that image defines everything. On TED talk’s one person showed us the flip side of appearance. Cameron Russell is a twenty seven year old whose been modeling for ten years. From Victoria Secrets runways to Vogue magazines she has been the image of a perfect woman. Before all of the fame, Cameron was just a teenage girl from Boston wanting to pursue a dream in politics. By the age of sixteen she received her first gig with Ford Models agency and has been one of America’s most iconic models. This topic is very interesting to me because of the message behind it. Appearance is something that is highly valued. Cameron went on to explain how she is viewed as this seductive model but is really a regular girl. She explains the only reason she was able to have a modeling career was because of a genetic lottery. Describing that being a white, tall and pretty woman was America’s perfect person. Cameron then informed us on how her looks gets her out of trouble, but how it is unfair to others who does not look the same as her. In 2012 120,000 Blacks and Latinos were pulled over in New York because of their appearance. Also a journalist counted one of Cameron’s runway events and out of 620 girls there were only 27 Black models. This presentation shows how society should start changing their views on what beauty is. Cameron Russell taught me a lot more about organizing my speeches. Her attention getter was awesome; she showed the audience how…

Male or female, it doesn’t matter right? Well, in our society it hinders the growth of an individual. I am Dr *enter name* a Professor in Gender studies at Sydney Uni and I was brought here to TED to explain gender issues. Would you like to be downtrodden just because of your gender? I think not. And society nowadays has created barriers which restrict growth. Gender can adapt according to cultural aspects and also through societies clear expectations. The film “Bend it like Beckham”, expresses these…

“Mathemagic” Arthur Benjamin
If Benjamin is right, and there truly is method to his madness, then Mathemagic could explain how Benjamin could know that I was born on a Wednesday. Arthur Benjamin’s speech starts out with him asking four people with calculators to come up on stage and check his results. He then multiplies two digit numbers together. The numbers 22 and 47 are multiplied in his head and his answer is 1,034, which is correct. Benjamin goes on to squaring a…

TED Talk Speech
“In spite of two centuries of doomsaying, humanity is enjoying unprecedented prosperity. There are environmental problems, certainly, but they can be solved”(Source W). As humans we put most of our attention on negative aspects of the environment, but what are we missing? We have turned a blind eye to all the things humans have done right to improve the quality of the environment. Never has this fact been more evident than now. From the forests all the way to symbiotic relationships…
strong introduction. I think that he does a great job opening with a quote from Ted Williams that may relate the person of tribute to the audience member. He also gives factual information as to why he is considered one of the greatest to play baseball. I think this is important because it allows people to know that this is the truth and is not biased information. Another great point that Stu makes is the reference back to Ted Williams’ nicknames. For an older audience member, this may be intriguing simply…
