This listening record is really hard for me, i couldn't hear all inventions properly even i listened this recording many time, Jed speaks too fast i think and some words are new for me, but it's better after i read the transcript.
I think the coolest invention is enable talk gloves, they are so useful to help people with special needs.

Hi Niluh,
Don't worry if you found this listening difficult. This is a high level of English and the recording is quite fast. The best thing to do is to listen several times and to use the transcript - which is exactly what you've done. You're a really good student, Niluh! :)
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Celebrities make often disastrous role model. For example teenagers idolise female stars with a perfect body because they are unhappy with their own bodies. Many celebrities are narcissistic and worthlessness.
Luis Suarez, one of the best soccer player on the planet, has a history of biting his opponents during matches. He is probably the worst role model.
Taylor Swift is an example of good role model. Her concerts have a positive message for young girls.
