How will the global population change in the future?
Why are birth rates in decline? United Nations projects that global population will reach 9.7 billion people in 2050, and population growth almost coming to an end at 10.8 billion in 2100.By 2100, the world's population is projected to reach approximately 10.9 billion, with annual growth of less than 0.1% – a steep decline from the current rate. Between 1950 and today, the world's population grew between 1% and 2% each year, with the number of people rising from 2.5 billion to more than 7.7 billion.With widespread, sustained declines in fertility, the world population will likely peak in 2064 at around 9.7 billion, and then decline to about 8.8 billion by 2100 -- about 2 billion lower than some previous estimates, according to a new study.Most of the growth will happen In Africa:The rapid population growth is the result of declining mortality since the 1950s unmatched by changes in fertility. There are significant socioeconomic and rural-urban mortality differentials in Africa, but as yet only highly educated urbanites have measurably reduced their family size.____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

Learning Chinese, Arabic, Russian and Korean Languages
Russian is a beautiful language of literature. Think Dostoevsky, Gogol, Chekov, Rushkin, Gorky, Turgenev, Tolstoy… Ah, you just have to one day read it the way it was written, untranslated, unadulterated.Korean has the most advanced writing system. You can read and write Korean in about 2 hours if you have the focus and a good teacher. It’s the most effective writing system you can ever learn, and you can use it phonetically to write your own secret diary, as da Vinci had his deep thoughts written in his secret diary in mirror images.Arabic is usually considered one of the most difficult languages to learn, topped by only a few languages like Japanese in terms of difficulty. Plus, it's even harder (or so they say) if you are a native speaker of English or a romance language.Unsurprisingly Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Korean come out as the hardest, requiring almost 2 years to learn. In the past I've tried my hand at the latter three, finding all extremely challenging although the Korean alphabet (Hangul) is far easier to learn than Chinese characters.____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

Pursuit of Happyness Motivational Speech - Will Smith
“There is no progress without struggle.” — Fredrick DouglasThe American Dream:The American dream is the belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, can attain their own version of success in a society in which upward mobility is possible for everyone.The Persuit of Happiness"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."What is it about? Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give in to despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.It is based on Gardner's nearly one-year struggle being homeless. The unusual spelling of the film's title comes from a mural that Gardner sees on the wall outside the daycare facility his son attended.It ends with a couple of title cards revealing the happy fate of its protagonist, Chris Gardner. He went on to earn a great fortune and build his own brokerage. He certainly deserved to after all the hard work he put in and everything he suffered along the way.

The definition of commitment is: 1) the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc."the company's commitment to quality"2) an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.In order to be committed, you need to say no to other things. It's about choosing what you want, and at the same time, what you don't want. Deciding and making a decision. Not keeping your options open.Committed people constantly make new goals and are always striving to push their boundaries and achieve more. People who are committed work hard out of habit and out of loyalty.

How to take charge of your life? Jim Rohn Motivational Speech
Jim Rohn was an American businessman, a self-made millionaire before he turned 31, author, motivational speaker and even Anthony Robbins's mentor. The author of dozens of books, Rohn was also a big believer in the power of self-discipline to achieve one's ambitions at home and in business.One of the greatest rags-to-riches stories is that of Jim Rohn. Jim spent his entire adult life giving back to humanity by teaching and lecturing about how to gain success in selling. He tried to teach people that they could be whatever they chose to be. Jim was an only child who grew up on a little farm in southwest Idaho, U.S.A., to become what many consider to be America's foremost business philosopher.Some great quotes from Jim Rohn:1. “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.”2. “How sad to see a father with money and no joy. The man studied economics, but never studied happiness.”3. “Days are expensive. When you spend a day you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.”4. “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”5. “Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”6. “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”7. “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.”8. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” 9. “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” 10. “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”11. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”12. “Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.” 13. “The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” 14. “Asking is the beginning of receiving. I ask for all kinds of things. Make sure you don't go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won't laugh at you.” 15. “Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long after they have departed.” 16. “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”17. “Make rest a necessity, not an objective. Only rest long enough to gather strength.”18. “Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.”19. “No one else 'makes us angry.' We make ourselves angry when we surrender control of our attitude.”20. “You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.”____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

What I've learnt from billionaires about investing 📈💰🚀🍾
Hey guys here are some things I've learnt about investing. Warren Buffet Farleigh: Lynch do you mean by Investment? A. Investment definition is an asset acquired or invested in to build wealth and save money from the hard earned income or appreciation. Investment meaning is primarily to obtain an additional source of income or gain profit from the investment over a specific period of time.Here's what you should know to start investing.Get started investing as early as possible.Decide how much to invest.Open an investment account.Understand your investment options.Pick an investment strategy.The terms ‘investing’ and ‘trading’ are often used interchangeably. However, there are key differences between the two financial strategies. The goal of investing is generally to build wealth over the medium to long term. By contrast, the goal of trading is to generate profits in the short-term.Compound interest is when the interest you earn on a balance in a savings or investing account is reinvested, earning you more interest. As a wise man once said, “Money makes money. And the money that money makes, makes money.” Compound interest accelerates the growth of your savings and investments over time.____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

Jordan Peterson - on the meaning of life for men
"Women know what they have to do, men have to figure out what they have to do." Jordan Bernt Peterson is a Canadian clinical psychologist, YouTube personality, author, and a professor emeritus at the University of Toronto. He began to receive widespread attention as a public intellectual in the late 2010s for his views on cultural and political issues, often described as conservative.The area that draws him the most attention–good and bad–is his view of masculinity.  Peterson believes society is quickly tumbling into chaos, and one of the primary reasons for our descent is because “The West has Lost Faith in Masculinity.”  The result has been nothing short of a crisis—for men and women alike.He has no patience for modern-day critiques of masculinity as oppressive or toxic. In fact, he blames that way of thinking for much of our cultural problems today.The “divine symbol of masculinity has been obliterated”–leaving men with no ideal to aspire to. As a result, boys are confused and discouraged about what they’re supposed to do or become, and it’s hurting them in every conceivable way. Whether it’s drug use, graduation rates, behavioral problems, or suicidal tendencies, boys are doing worse than girls across the board.Convinced “a stable society needs masculine men,” Peterson is on a mission to restore dignity to the very idea of manhood. To that end, he expects men to assume responsibility for the work ahead: “‘Toxic Masculinity’ is a contradiction of terms. It’s ridiculous. The masculine spirit is necessary. At its core, the essence of masculinity is responsibility.”His message to men is clear: assume responsibility for a better tomorrow.   The response has been profound.  Peterson is frequently moved to tears as men credit him with saving their lives and giving them purpose. Pick up the world with all of its trouble, with all of its suffering, with all of its evil, and move forward with it. And in bearing that burden, learn that you’re the sort of creature that can bear that burden and therefore deserves respect.Jordan Peterson____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

Jim Carrey - Motivational Speech
Jim Carrey , in full James Eugene Carrey, (born January 17, 1962, New Market, Ontario, Canada), Canadian American comedian who established himself as a leading comedic actor with a series of over-the-top performances and who won plaudits for his more-serious portrayals as his career progressed. While living in America, he struggled to make money during the first few years and almost gave up. In an interview, Carrey states that he would drive to the top of Mulholland Drive in LA every night, and visualize what he wanted for himself as an actor. In 1992, Carrey wrote a check to himself for 10 million dollars._______________James Eugene "Jim" Carrey is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, singer and writer. He has received two Golden Globe Awards and has also been nominated on four occasions.Carrey began stand-up comedy in 1979, performing at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto, Ontario. After gaining prominence in 1981, he began working at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles where he was soon noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who immediately signed him to open his tour performances.Carrey, long interested in film and television, developed a close friendship with comedian Damon Wayans, which landed him a role in the sketch comedy hit In Living Color, in which he portrayed various characters during the show's 1990 season. Having had little success in television movies and several low-budget films, Carrey was cast as the title character in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective which premiered in February, 1994, making more than $72 million domestically.

Randy Pausch - The Last Lecture - Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
Randy Pausch was never a particularly religious man, and when they diagnosed his final cancer, he joked that his only "death-bed conversion" would be to exchange his PC for a new Apple Mac. Yet the computer science professor realised an extraordinary ability to convert others, becoming what he called a "media-based inspirer" who helped millions appreciate the briefness and sanctity of life.The Last Lecture is a 2008 New York Times best-selling book co-authored by Randy Pausch —a professor of computer science, human-computer interaction, and design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—and Jeffrey Zaslow of the Wall Street Journal.[1] The book extends the September 2007 lecture by Pausch entitled "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams".[1] The Last Lecture is renowned for its witty humor, despite encompassing Pausch's farewell to his loved ones due to his terminal pancreatic cancer.[2] In the book, through his past experiences, Pausch attempts to lend advice to his children that they may need once he has passed. He recounts memories growing up and important people who have been vital in "achieving his childhood dreams."See Randy's book about this "Last Lecture" at reprised this talk on the Oprah Show in Oct 2007 (see ).  Randy Pausch( ) is a virtual reality pioneer, human-computerinteraction researcher, co-founder of CMU's Entertainment TechnologyCenter (____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

The Road Not Taken Poem by Robert Frost
"The Road Not Taken" by Robert FrostTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.What Is the Main Theme of "The Road Not Taken?"The main theme of "The Road Not Taken" is that it is often impossible to see where a life-altering decision will lead. Thus, one should make their decision swiftly and with confidence.It is normal to wonder what the outcome would have been if the other road, the road not taken, was the road chosen. But to contemplate this hypothetical deeply is folly, for it is impossible to say whether taking the other road would have been better or worse: all one can say is that it would have been different.What Is the Central Message of "The Road Not Taken?""The Road Not Taken" suddenly presents the speaker and the reader with a dilemma. There are two roads in an autumnal wood separating off, presumably the result of the one road splitting, and there's nothing else to do but to choose one of the roads and continue life's journey.The central message is that, in life, we are often presented with choices. When making a choice, one is required to make a decision. Viewing a choice as a fork in a path, it becomes clear that we must choose one direction or another, but not both.In "The Road Not Taken," Frost does not indicate whether the road he chose was the right one. Nonetheless, that is the way he is going now, and the place he ends up, for better or worse, was the result of his decision.This poem is not about taking the road less travelled, about individuality or uniqueness. This poem is about the road taken, to be sure, as well the road not taken, not necessarily the road less traveled. Any person who has made a decisive choice will agree that it is human nature to contemplate the "What if..." had you made the choice you did not make. This pondering about the different life one may have lived had they done something differently is central to "The Road Not Taken."The speaker opts, at random, for the other road and, once on it, declares himself happy because it has more grass and not many folk have been down it. Anyway, he could always return one day and try the 'original' road again. Would that be possible? Perhaps not, life has a way of letting one thing leading to another until going backwards is just no longer an option.But who knows what the future holds down the road? The speaker implies that, when he's older he might look back at this turning point in his life, the morning he took the road less travelled, because taking that particular route completely altered his way of being.What Is the Point of View of "The Road Not Taken?"The point of view is of the traveler, who, walking along a single path, encounter____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at

Elon Musk - Making Humans Multiplanetary - Speech - Plan to Mars
“You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great - and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars.”This speech was made in 2016. It is amazing to see how far things have come since then.-Elon MuskYou can watch the video here: MARS?At an average distance of 140 million miles, Mars is one of Earth's closest habitable neighbors. Mars is about half again as far from the Sun as Earth is, so it still has decent sunlight. It is a little cold, but we can warm it up. Its atmosphere is primarily CO2 with some nitrogen and argon and a few other trace elements, which means that we can grow plants on Mars just by compressing the atmosphere. Gravity on Mars is about 38% of that of Earth, so you would be able to lift heavy things and bound around. Furthermore, the day is remarkably close to that of Earth.ON-ORBIT REFILLINGStarship leverages tanker vehicles (essentially the Starship spacecraft minus the windows) to refill the Starship spacecraft in low-Earth orbit prior to departing for Mars. Refilling on-orbit enables the transport of up to 100 tons all the way to Mars. And if the tanker ship has high reuse capability, the primary cost is that of the propellant, and the cost of oxygen and methane is extremely low.STARSHIPStarship will be the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, with the ability to carry in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit. Drawing on an extensive history of launch vehicle and engine development programs, SpaceX has been rapidly iterating on the design of Starship with orbital-flight targeted for 2020.LANDING ON MARSStarship will enter Mars’ atmosphere at 7.5 kilometers per second and decelerate aerodynamically. The vehicle’s heat shield is designed to withstand multiple entries, but given that the vehicle is coming into Mars’ atmosphere so hot, we still expect to see some ablation of the heat shield (similar to wear and tear on a brake pad). The engineering video below simulates the physics of Mars entry for Starship.In 2016, SpaceX Founder, CEO, and Lead Designer Elon Musk discusses the long-term technical challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent, self-sustaining human presence on Mars. The technical presentation will focus on potential architectures for sustaining humans on the Red Planet that industry, government and the scientific community can collaborate on in the years ahead.Elon Musk's SpaceX COO says manned missions will reach Mars by 2030. NASA says otherwise. Humanity could reach the Red Planet and the Moon sooner than we think.____________________________________________________________Check out more episodes and subscribe on You can also email us at rich@2030school.comJoin the Online AI Bootcamp Join the 5 week UnpackAI online bootcamp.
