"An advanced city is not one where even the poor use cars, but rather one
where even the rich use public transport," says Enrique Peñalosa. In this
spirited talk, the former mayor of Bogotá shares some of the tactics he
used to change the system in the Colombian capital ... and suggests ways to
think about building smart cities of the future.

David Lang is a maker who taught himself to become an amateur oceanographer
-- or, he taught a robot to be one for him. In a charming talk Lang, a TED
Fellow, shows how he and a network of ocean lovers teamed up to build
open-sourced, low-cost underwater explorers. Watch

It's time for liberals and conservatives to transcend their political
differences and really listen to each other, says political pundit Sally
Kohn. In this optimistic talk, Kohn shares what she learned as a
progressive lesbian talking head on Fox News. It’s not about political
correctness, she says, but rather, emotional correctness.  (Contains
profanity.) Watch

It's relatively easy to imagine a new medicine, a better cure for some
disease. The hard part, though, is testing it, and that can delay promising
new cures for years. In this well-explained talk, Geraldine Hamilton shows
how her lab creates organs and body parts on a chip, simple structures with
all the pieces essential to testing new medications -- even custom cures
for one specific person. *(Filmed at TEDxBoston)* Watch

Here's a stat worth knowing: In the UK, 63% of men who finish short-term
prison sentences are back inside within a year for another crime. Helping
them stay outside involves job training, classes, therapy. And it would pay
off handsomely -- but the government can't find the funds. Toby Eccles
shares an imaginative idea for how to change that: the Social Impact Bond.
It's an unusual bond that helps fund initiatives with a social goal through
private money -- with the government paying back the investors (with
interest) if the initiatives work. Watch

Sally Kohn: Let’s try emotional
  Thanks for reminding us how much energy it will save for parties to
listen to each other and generate solutions. Not sure about the word
"correctness" though. It seems to me it implies a "right vs. wrong" mindset
that generally and naturally leads to a "win vs. lose" fight. I think the
point is about a solution that satisfies both and not about being correct
or not."
