Every Wednesday, we have different TED talk discussion, so when my turn came, I chose this video to discuss about. In this video, the speaker uses different speaking skills, like using a hook, stressing the words, and different skills. Laura Schmidt is trying to show us the danger of eating unhealthy food, and what tricks that food companies uses to atract people, Coca-Cola in the past uses Cocaine as a ingreidint in her drinks! Wow, I just know that. I had several questions that I wrote, so if you want to test your self, her you go! I was the leader for the TED talk discussion, at that time I felt like i’m a boss. It’s a cool experience, thank you Mrs. Elena.
