Wonderful presentation Yunmin!
This was a very well organized and structured presentation that thoroughly educated me about nuclear power. This taught me a lot about the consequences of using nuclear power. I loved how you thoroughly explored all the negative consequences to different lifeforms which really stressed the danger of this sort of issue. After seeing all the disastrous effects of this incident, this brings up questions like “What more could the Japanese government have done?” or “Should there have been more safety regulations around nuclear power?” I really liked your TED talk because there was very good visual aid to keep my interest as well as your enthusiastic tone of voice. A very interesting topic that was well researched is displayed through your TED talk. Not only did you give us a lot of background information and relevant information to understand the topic, you still went in-depth and thoroughly answered your inquiry, Overall stunning performance that educated me a lot. Thanks!

Great TED talk Kimi!
This was really interesting because I watched this TED talk right after watching Jayden’s video. There is a lot of correlation because both of you are talking about genetically modifying animals. I also loved your hook that gave a personal story that give insight into some real life and relatable incidents. I also love how you made direct comparisons like pros or cons that clearly outlined the issues and benefits. I am also wondering why Canada would let fish related to breast cancer go unchecked. Is there a reasoning behind that? I loved your strong conclusion that was a sort of call to action that raised awareness about genetically modified salmon. Overall stunning TED talk with great visuals and interesting voice enthusiasm.

Great video Jackson!
You had a very good hook that attracted my attention really well. I also loved you fluidly moved into a sort of outline to what you were going to talk about which adds a strong structure to your video. This is also a good connection to the Sustainability Lesson we had in science a few weeks ago. Although I agree with your idea of eating insects as a good source of nutrition, I feel like this course of action is still a bit too undeveloped. However, this leads to ideas about taking that leap and starting to work on sustainable insect-eating. However, this does bring u questions like “Do people really want to be eating insects?” and “How will people react to eating bowls of insects instead of gourmet food like steak?” Nonetheless, great video and loved your smooth and clear speaking pace. Thank you for educating me about this new sustainable option.

Comment on TALONS Ted Talk: Colour Deficiency by ntan

Cool video Elaine!
It’s really interesting how you shed light on the difference between colour blindness and colour deficiency in such a fun and interactive format. I had a lot of fun with your interactive colour deficiency testing, but you specified that it only works on red-green colour deficiency. This makes me wonder how people get tested for blue colour deficiency. You also stated blue colour deficiency is more severe and I am wondering why that is true. Overall, it was a wonderful and succinct way to present such an interesting topic to your audience. You went gave very good background information yet still went in-depth into your inquiry. Great job!
