What can I show children to inspire and wow them? I teach children aged between 9 and 11. I'm looking for video clips (or other) to show the children that will blow their minds - or at least, prompt discussion, broaden their horizons and take them outside of the confines of the four walls of the classroom.

What is this Ted Talk I Watched? It's at the tip of my tongue, and I don't want to sift through over 1600 talks to find it. Plus, I can't think of the words to start searching for it besides very generic keywords. [more inside]

I need to find an inspiring leader. S/he does not have to be english speaking or from politics. Dead or alive. Please let me know why you find him/her so inspiring. If you have non-obvious links to/about the person, please post too. Thanks!!

I really need some pep talks right now. I've been on the hunt for inspiring, upbeat podcasts, but so many of them are phony or cheesy. What podcasts are real, helpful, and motivating? [more inside]

I'm looking for films that have writers as the protagonists. I find the films inspiring. My favorite thus far is The Tenants
(2006), which stars Dylan McDermott and Snoop Dogg! Any ideas? Thanks in advance... [more inside]

Please recommend some uplifting, inspiring, happy, fun movies/documentaries that will restore one's faith in humanity. The tone of Pixar's UP is perfect, though it need not be animated.

I am working on a series of promos for a national cable network and looking for some suggestions regarding music. They love the song from the Michael Mann's Miami Vice
trailer: Numb/Encore by Linkin Park and Jay-Z. I'm looking for instrumental tracks with that feeling: serious, inspiring, melancholy, uplifting, energetic, modern, slick, etc. The promos involve beautiful slow-motion visuals with voiceover underneath. Thought I would turn to my favorite hive mind. Any suggestions? Thanks!
