“I'm at the upper end of the millennial group... and I just don't feel I or most young folks I know fit into this classification- this sounds more like the 18-23 year olds. Yeah, we're worried about our jobs and the economy, and I certainly know a lot of people with loans who are underemployed, but I really have to question the survey this article is based on. Is 1002 even statistically significant enough to represent all 18-30 year olds in Canada?
I would have to double-check the population size of our age group, but my initial thought is 'No'.”

“This needs to be done because people can't understand what it is to lose a child. Forget about Amanda for a second, what about her parents and the family left behind? As if it isn't hard enough on them already, people are still bullying. Can't people let Amanda rest in peace? Can't they let her family grieve in peace? WHY IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK! All Christine is doing is being a decent human being. Just because we have freedom of speech doesn't mean we have freedom from consequences, and people in this country need to learn that.”

“You're right freedom of speech doesn't include freedom of consequences but tell me one thing.

If you believe this, then why do you people defend Amanda Todd when people point out that it she has only herself to blame since all her troubles are the consequences of her actions huh?

What makes Amanda so special that all her mistakes make her a hero while this guy's mistake make him a monster?”

“The ground, the trees, the rocks, and the ice all store records of weather- for example through ice cores, or tree rings, or soil cores. It can be an time-consuming task, but studying such things has taught us about weather in past years- when it was cold, when it was hot, and when dramatic weather and events happened- like a volcano exploding. It's entirely plausible to know when the droughts were in any area on the planets over thousands (or longer, depending on what you find to study) of years, so 800 is easy.”

“If they're still paying tuition, then it's part of their training, and thus not an internship. They still have exams and work under doctors that are their teachers. Interns have no one teaching them, and illegal internships are only the ones that don't give someone a school credit, an honorarium or a wage. Which sadly is a lot of them. But not medical training. Medical training is different.”

“It wasn't censored. TED didn't post it because it doesn't meet their high standards for talks. They HAVE posted other talks on income inequality, and didn't plan to put this one up, until the guy who did it yelled foul like a little baby.
It really isn't that well-researched, and TED is a good organization that was backed into a corner because of this, because of idiots like you that believe the presenter of this talk.

Still, I think people should watch the talk, and then watch other talks on the subject on the TED website, because we could all be a bit more educated on the subject.”

“Your comment seems to be missing the high standards of Huff's posting guidelines.”

Wild Thing on May 22, 2012 at 15:53:45

“What is your standard for "well-researched"? I agree that TED is a good organization, but it has a very wide range of talks. Many are highly technical, and others are less technical, based on peoples' experience, talents, etc... If Hanauer's talk didn't meet TED's high standards, then why was he allowed to present it at all? I think Nick Hanauer was speaking from his experience as a 1%'er and has a valuable perspective that deserves to be heard. Warren Buffet and Charles Munger are being villified right now by other members of their social class because they are speaking their minds. Maybe this is what is also happening to Hanauer?

I also think that Rob Vann is not a idiot, and that you should retract your insult to him.”

“This is straight up ridiculous. I'm from Canada, where same sex marriage has been legal for years, and guess what it changed and 'destroyed'.

“I have an idea. How about we put the oil sands to good use - since clearly we're going to drain every molecule of oil out of them anyway regardless of what anyone says- and only use it for domestic use instead of selling it to other countries that will then sell it back to us at a higher price??? Like Venezuela. They used their oil reserves to help their own people first.”

“We don't sell it to other countries that then 'sell it back to us'.
I don't know what friend of yours told you that, but I'd stop listening to them.

Canada is a net exporter. To understand how a country can import gas while simultaneously exporting, you need to think about it a little bit: Canada is a big country, and refineries aren't located everywhere; there are only a few refineries. In some areas of Canada, it makes more sense to import from the States rather than Canada, simply because the American refineries are geographically closer and cost less to transport.”

“Venezuela is nationalized. So is Mexico, Iran, Saudi Arabia.... etc

Good luck relying on the goodness of Albertans to make tarsands nationalized. Or any province or territory that has oil resources.

Better yet, let's just stop importing 2 mill barrels a day on world markets while we sell 2 mill barrels a day. What a waste of time and money. We could reap the benefits of geography with slightly cheaper local fuels (not necessarily nationalized) then sell the excess on the world market. That way we are not beholden to other countries”
