In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

In a classic research-based TEDx Talk, Dr. Lara Boyd describes how neuroplasticity gives you the power to shape the brain you want. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015. YouTube Tags: brain science, brain, stroke, neuroplasticity, science, motor learning, identity, TED, TEDxVancouver, TEDxVancouver 2015, Vancouver, TEDx, Rogers Arena, Vancouver speakers, Vancouver conference, ideas worth spreading, great idea, Our knowledge of the brain is evolving at a breathtaking pace, and Dr. Lara Boyd is positioned at the cutting edge of these discoveries. In 2006, she was recruited by the University of British Columbia to become the Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology and Motor Learning. Since that time she has established the Brain Behaviour Lab, recruited and trained over 40 graduate students, published more than 80 papers and been awarded over $5 million in funding. Dr. Boyd’s efforts are leading to the development of novel, and more effective, therapeutics for individuals with brain damage, but they are also shedding light on broader applications. By learning new concepts, taking advantage of opportunities, and participating in new activities, you are physically changing who you are, and opening up a world of endless possibility. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
In this English pronunciation lesson, I'm going to show you how to pronounce some difficult words. These words are often pronounced incorrectly and are common mistakes that many English students make. This is because the combination of sounds is difficult, or because there are silent letters and syllables. I've chosen these words because they are common words and they are words that are often pronounced incorrectly by English learners. These words are: - vegetable - comfortable - almond and salmon - et cetera (etc.) - clothes - jewellery - architecture - enthusiastic - word, world & work - photograph Please note that the pronunciation of some of these words differs between English accents. I speak with an Australian English accent 🙂 Let's fix these pronunciation mistakes together so that you can speak English more clearly and confidently!

Speak Japanese with a native ^.^ http://go.italki.com/japaneseammo (You'll get 10$ in credits by clicking the link.) In this lesson we'll learn words & phrases you should avoid. There are LOTS of words that learners use but are actually RUDE / CRINGEY in Japanese. If you learn Japanese just using dictionaries, Google Translate and textbooks, you end up sounding RUDE AND WEIRD D: Do you know how to say these things in Japanese PROPERLY?: - I love you. (Phrase you get from the Google Translate is NOOOO!) - I'm happy to be your friend. - Thank you. (Arigatou is rude!) - Lots of ways to say the word "you" - "Well done" (yoku dekimashita - looking down at someone) - Imperative (e.g. たべろ！いけ！） vs Request form (e.g. たべて！いって！） - How to SWEAR / Japanese Swear Words - I feel bad. (Does かわいそう mean "it LOOKS cute"???) and MUCH MORE ★ P.S. Japanese can be very different depending on the region. What I'm teaching is the standard (hyoujungo) Japanese that's used in Tokyo / Kanto region. ^^ ★★Want longer lessons? ★★ Support me on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/japaneseammo ★★Do you want to learn Japanese from ANIME?
