TED talks are great to watch when you have time to spare, the problem is finding a good collection of them without having to jump through a bunch of different websites. To combat this, a new channel called the "TED Archive" has begun the long process of cataloguing and uploading talks, making it easier for the rest of us.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
The signs are all there: you feel depressed, anxious, and detached; you keep getting head and back aches; your job performance and relationships are suffering; and your weight continues to fluctuate. If this sounds like you, odds are you’re burned out. Here are 11 online TED talks that can help.
