This patent has potential to revolutionize the way humans grow crops – if it can be allowed to reach mass exposure.

Be authentic (but not too authentic). Follow your dreams (but also make a living). Don't be afraid to negotiate your salary, always use spell check, and once and for all, stop eating lunch at your desk. But often some of the most valuable advice is the stuff that doesn't get repeated ad nauseam. Thankfully, unconventional thinking is at home on the TED stage, and there are plenty of talks that feature some insightful, if not counterintuitive, career wisdom.

Here are some of the best talks: Nigel Marsh's 'How to make work-life balance work' Pretty much everyone is on board with the concept of work-life balance, but according Marsh, a writer and marketing expert, pretty much everyone is thinking about it wrong.
