Jack- Using humor in your speech really went along with what you were trying to say. Great job, you didn't seem to be nervous at all.
Jack- I loved how you connected happiness to people's lives. It makes the audience think of how happiness affects their lives. Many people regard happiness as not essential to tasks, such as work and school. Your talk proves that happiness is a huge motivator, and fuels human behavior.
I think that being happy is very important. Opening up with humor was one of the best attention getters. It really worked with your topic considering the fact that your speech is about being happy. I find that I feel better. Good speech!
Jack,Good ice breaker. Your talk is a light one, which can be hard to do after a heavy one like Stephen's (not that it wasn't great). You also looked comfortable up there. I didn't see any mechanical rehearsal. That was all you.I would say, move around a bit more. You stood in the same spot almost everyone has stood in. Don't be afraid to move in front of the camera and talk to the other side of the classroom.Great message and great delivery. You looked very professional, yet still laid back and fun.-Matthew Cheney
Nice ice breaker! The comedy in your speech really helped enforce your point and break up all of the supporting information you gave us.
The way that Jack used humor for happiness really complemented his presentation. He did a really good job in capturing the audience's attention.
Jack - Your humorous an informative speech seemed well thought out and nearly flawless. You had some entertaining and enticing examples of personal happiness, and had some great things to say. Great Job.
Jack, your humbleness and pointing out the obvious was really entertaining. Good talk! A happy heart is a healthy heart. Nice.
Jack's ted talk was very uplifting. It made me realized that I I'm happy I can work better. I liked how he had funny pictures added in.
Jack your humor being incorporated into the speech was great and you followed an easy to follow outline. We knew where you were going the beginning. Happiness seems like such an obvious topic but you took it deeper and in more detail than I think was expected. The random pictures made a happy enviornonment too. Good job Jack.
Jack-Great way to start off your speach with a laugh. It went along great with your subject of happiness. When givin your speach were calm and made a great connection with the audiance. Great Job.

I completely agree with your topic because sI think that thinking with a positive attitude cna make anything get done better and faster! Happiness is what everyone needs in their life! :)
Jack, I liked you talk! Positivity is such a great thing! Your humor was a great addition to your talk. Happiness is something that I think should be valued more in everyday life. Great job and great topic!
Jack- I loved how you incorporated humor into your ted talk. It made us all listen and interested. I like your topic and I fully agree with your topic. You did a great job with supporting your topic with facts and how it connected to your personal life. Overall great job!!
Jack- I liked your examples. Your analytical approach to happiness offered a fresh new look on the subject. One thing I would've enjoyed is if you engaged the audience more, but other than that, great presentation.
Jack,I thought that your points applied nicely with the ideas in Danial Pinks book, A Whole New Mind. I agree that happiness increases productivity. Your points were clear and very nice. Good job!
Your presentation made me happy, I think that that's what you were trying to achieve. :)
Jack demonstrated his topic of happiness by making us laugh in the beginning of his talk. He talks about happiness leads to productivity, because people enjoy what they do. Jack depended on his slides to form the structure of his speech. The way he talks and carries himself shows that he is a happy person, and he practices what he preaches.
Jack- Your use of humor truly made the TED Talk a very engaging one. Humor, creativity, and happiness truly do seem to be the best way to live a long and enjoyable life. The pictures were great, and I could truly see your voice instead of a dull, informative speech. Thanks Jack!
Jack- Great job warming up the audiece and starting your speech with humor.

I liked your pictures they were funny. Good job!
