TED started 30 years ago in California and it's had some powerful people speak at the event, including Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert and many more. From that, spinoff's were created, consisting of locations and/or communities. Each speaker has 18 minutes, which they have to be able to speak in the purest form possible in order to connect with the audience.

Legislators back away from Anchorage’s pending school debt

Anchorage voters on April 7 will decide a $59 million bond package.
