What on Earth Happened to the Old Europeans? Pre-Indo-European History of Europe

What on Earth Happened to the Old Europeans? Pre-Indo-European History of Europe

What happened to the Old European? Meaning the original people groups of Europe that inhabited the landmass before the arrival of the Indo-Europeans, a group which would later evolve into the vast majority of European nations we see today, from the Russians, Italians, Irish, Norwegians and Greeks. Although precious little is known, there are clues left behind in the archaeology, genetics, linguistics and historical texts that have been passed down through the generations, which gives us a somewhat fuzzy picture of pre-historic Europe. Be sure to let me know your thoughts on the pre-Indo-European Europeans and let me know which culture you think is the most interesting. Thanks for watching!

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson

How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams. For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list. Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSB’s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons. Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes. His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education. He is the former Head of Currency Option Trading at Bank of America and Emerging Markets at AIG International. 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

He’s often referred to as one of the most profound thinkers of our time. And in this episode you will see why… SHOWNOTES How we can hack humans and manipulate their desires [3:26] How algorithms will learn to understand you better than you understand yourself (and why you could be replaced by one) [5:03] Why corporations will even be able to predict your sexual orientation… [8:50] The reality of outsourcing the self-discovery process… [12:27] How algorithms will change the way we make art… [15:49] Can AI save us from cancer? (See how it’s possible, but decide for yourself if it's dangerous)... [18:10] The battle between privacy and health... [19:29] How to take control of the story you tell yourself and why you need to stop thinking of your life as a movie… [21:09] Why we’re heading into the direction of immortality and the future is just a series of massive disruptions [28:44] Why you need to continuously reinvent yourself if you want to survive to 2035.
