TED Talks – Hobsbawm on the Power of Creativity

Andy HobsbawmIn this brief presentation Andy Hobsbawm urges all of us to employ the power of creativity in the service of fighting global warming. As an example during the second half of the video he shows a video clip that calls on us to walk instead of drive and does so through a story told in a very creative way. It is such a simple idea and in many ways that’s why I found it entertaining, smart, and inspiring. (image of Andy Hobsbawm by Nico MacDonald)

    Hi, Ping,Dulan is a lovely place to stay. Although this time I only made fnreids with who are not from there, including 落花鉎’s 小Jay, assistants (小幫手) and other restaurants’ host. I was impressed by those who are willing to away from Taipei’s life which I am used to and feel very comfortable. When we envy their relaxing life in Dulan, in fact, life is something you need to have in hand and others you have to abandon. Thanks 漣漪人文化基金’s support and it’s my pleasure to stay at 落花鉎. I like your interview said by 小Jay~ 台灣社會常常封閉在一個過度都市化的城市,希望大家可以開啟封閉的心靈與視野,勇敢去探索.Ping, your writing do has many effects to me. I suggest all the readers here, if you would like to open your eyes and do more thinking, you can read Ping’s book: 生意人 悅日人 漣漪人. Be inspired, Get involved, Take action. (p.96).Cheers to Dulan.

    The rate of the hard drive (i.e. how quick data can be recovered) relies on upon the rpm (cycles every moment) which shows how quick the hard drive turns.

  7. dr driving says:

    Most portable workstation hard drives have a rpm of 5400, however you can move up to 7200. The cons of a quicker hard drive are that it produces more warmth and will deplete your battery speedier, so think about that while designing your portable PC.
