    Conflict Minerals, Rebels and Child Soldiers in Congo

    SUROOSH ALVI: It’s late. We’re deep in the heart of it now. I don’t know how much water we have. We haven’t eaten in a really long time. And my glasses are fogging up because it’s so hot. And I can’t see. And I’m walking in the mud. I don’t know, man. I think this might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The Democratic Republic of Congo. It’s one of the poorest countries in the world, and thanks to insanely complicated mix of politics, armed conflict, and corruption, it’s also one of the most under-reported. It also happens to be home to a nondescript black rock known as coltan,…

    $399 Suit Vs. $7,900 Suit

    – What’s up Evan? – Sup. – You like fashion right? – I do. – Then why do you always look so bad? (chuckles) I’m just kidding. – Bad meaning bad, or bad meaning good? – It’s the one that you want it to be. – Bad. – Will you join me on my suit shopping extravaganza? – Suit. – We’re going New York.

    The lethality of loneliness: John Cacioppo at TEDxDesMoines

    Translator: Tatjana Jevdjic Reviewer: Elisabeth Buffard When you look out onto the world, it certainly appears the Earth is flat. The ground beneath you is stable and unmoving, and stars and sun circle the Earth. Hundreds of years ago, elaborated theories were developed based on these common sense observations to explain and predict the reach of the oceans and the movement of celestial bodies. When science demonstrated that these common sense observations were illusions, and depicted the Earth and the Universe in a completely different way, people slowly came to accept that the world was not as it seemed. Scientific measurements and sophisticated calculations have repeatedly demonstrated that what we…

    Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan

    [MUSIC PLAYING] ANNOUNCER: [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: All right. Hi, it’s Thomas. We’re in Bishkek. I’m on a Kok Beru horse. That’s basically polo, but you play with a dead goat. It is one of Kyrgystan’s many fine traditions. One of the other traditions, a little less fun, is kidnapping women and making them your bride. We’re going to go out of Bishkek up into the hills and see that happen. Kyrgyzstan is a tiny landlocked country next to China that spent most of the last century as part of the Soviet Union. Prior to that it was a wild, tribally ruled Conan land known for it’s people’s horsemanship,…
