Seemingly Impossible is Possible

Amongst everything that seems to be filled with doom and gloom I have come across a lecture from Professor Hans Rosling that may offer a glimpse of hope - given time. The lecture "Seemingly Impossible is Possible" is shown as it originally aired by TED TV using Gapminder software to demonstrate global statistics in ways you have never seen them before (well, at least I hadn't). A look at Africa's struggles shows that the gap between have and have not seems minuscule when talked about in dollars and cents.

Statistics are unfortunately not the most sexy thing in the world, however Professor Hans Rosling has the gift and ability to show us global trending statistics in ways you may have never seen them before. There is hope that the seemingly impossible is possible.

Watch this video, pay attention to where the world was, where we are now and how we got here. Attention: This video has a run time of 20 minutes - it is worth the view
