Why Objects Fall If There Is No Gravity in Space
Why Objects Fall If There Is No Gravity in Space
Dag sedan
Have you ever wondered why stars fall at all if there’s no gravity in space? We have all seen astronauts swimming in the air on ISS like fish in the water. But if you think that it happens because there is zero gravity there, you’ll learn something new today. “Zero gravity” doesn’t mean there is none of it. If there were no gravity in space the Earth wouldn’t be able to hold the Moon near itself. All the planets and stars would just fly across the Universe freely, bump into each other and - well, it would probably end things really quickly. Gravity can be tiny but never absent, this is one of its laws.

If we build a platform 190-250 miles high (it’s the altitude of ISS above Earth) and throw a stone from there it will fall down just the same way as it falls down from your balcony. - But then why don’t astronauts just walk on the floor of ISS as we do on Earth? The reason for it is that when in the orbit they are in a state of a constant free fall to Earth, and the ISS itself is also falling to Earth all the time. - Why don’t they raise ISS higher above the Earth where astronauts won’t have to free fall? - Astronauts can stay on ISS for so long because the uppermost atmosphere protects them from solar radiation. - At the altitude above 310 miles, there are radiation belts that have a destructive impact on humans. - If a body is far enough from a space object the gravity of the space object will be too small, and their mutual attraction will roughly balance each other. - What we take for shooting stars are just small stones floating in space and their orbit or our orbit, makes us run into each other. - The speed is so high that the air gets super-hot and starts shining. - In science, shooting stars are called meteors. If parts of meteors do reach the Earth's surface they are called meteorites. Super bright meteors are called fireballs. - Hundreds of millions of meteors appear in the atmosphere daily. Their total weight can be thousands of tons. - Meteors can form as a result of a collision of another planet and a smaller space object. - Small space bodies can have quite a different direction but if they come too close to the Earth, its gravity will turn them around and pull down. - Astronomers watch closely all the big space objects that could potentially get too close to our planet when moving along their orbit. - If you trace the way of meteors on the sky it will seem that they all fly out of the same spot. It is called a meteoroid stream radiant.

What Happens After You Flush on a Cruise Ship
What Happens After You Flush on a Cruise Ship
2 dagar sedan
These days, any cruise ship is like a huge city, where every detail is thought out so that passengers feel just as comfortable as on land, only better. You can take a shower, do the laundry, or swim in a pool. But where does all the dirty water go? The average ship spends about 40-50 gallons of water per passenger every day. It makes tons of wastewater that needs to be utilized. Say, the world's biggest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, can carry about 5,500 passengers together with 2,300 crew members. They produce about 312,000 gallons of wastewater daily!

Blackwater comes from bathrooms. - The highest volume of wastewater comes from greywater. It gets mixed with some of the blackwater and is sent to the bio-reactor. - Chlorine and other chemicals aren’t used since they’re bad for the sea’s eco system. - The solid waste that was filtered at the first stage is kept in special tanks until the ship arrives at the harbor where it’ll be utilized. - Scientists have noticed that ballast water taken from one ocean and thrown into another is bad for the ecosystem. - The species of plankton and other sea inhabitants vary in different oceans, and the “strangers” can start destroying the “natives”. - Sensitive detectors measure the level of oil in the water, and if it’s even a bit higher than what’s allowed, the water is sent for cleaning again. - There’s special staff on board every ship who sort out the garbage into 4 categories - food waste, paper, metal and glass, and plastic. - Most of the food waste is considered natural: it doesn’t do any harm to the sea’s ecosystem. - Household waste, cooking grease, and solid waste are kept on board until the ship arrives at the harbor and is utilized there. - Metal and glass are just thrown overboard. Surprised? These two just drop to the bottom and do no harm to the sea. - Strict rules also apply to the passengers themselves. On every deck of a cruise ship, there are usually special instructions that forbid them from throwing anything overboard themselves. - Turns out, all cruise ships have desalinating plants. When the ship goes farther than 25 miles from the land, they take seawater, which goes through a many-layered filter, a powerful ultra-violet lamp, and a desalinator. - The desalinating plant is the size of a room and gives enough fresh water for all the passengers and crew.

What If You Woke Up in the Game You Last Played
What If You Woke Up in the Game You Last Played
2 dagar sedan
I don’t know what happened, but it all started a week ago. I was remembering the good old times and playing Morrowind, and I lost track of time. Late at night, I just fell asleep in front of my PC, and that’s when the crazy stuff began. I woke up because I heard the voice of Jiub… right in front of me. He was addressing me - not my character, but me. I thought I was still dreaming, but I could literally smell the prison ship, and it was all so… real. Then I accidentally bumped into a table on the way to the exit, and it hurt a little. That’s when I knew it wasn’t a dream at all...

Yeah, I do that from to time to time to relax. This time, though, a weird idea came to me. What if I stay up late again and see what happens? I mean, I’d already been to Morrowind, why not the Minecraft world? - I looked at my hands, and they were made of blocks too. I woke up in a forest biome, so everything around me was lush green, but there was also a cave nearby, with its ceiling half collapsed. - I spent the rest of the daytime exploring the glades and woods. By the way, the day lasted just like it would in the real world, not only 20 minutes. By the nightfall, I got a bit tired, so I settled down, built myself a lean-to, and made a fire. - I supposed I had no choice but to lie down and have a nap. I fell asleep very quickly, just hoping it wouldn’t end like the previous time… …yet it did. I woke up again in my own bed. - I spent the whole day in anticipation. I’m not that much of a gamer, you know, but all this was so exciting that I couldn’t really concentrate on anything else but my next virtual adventure. - And the game I chose was Fortnite. No, I didn’t just give in to all the hype around it; I wanted to actually see what it would be like to participate in a battle royale from the first person perspective. - It was so weird feeling my legs working and realizing that someone might appear from behind any wall or tree at any moment, with their intentions being anything but good. - I sat with my back to some tree and watched my surroundings intently for any signs of other players. Or were they really players? Could it be that I wasn’t alone in that strange world? - I felt a sudden hit to my head and lost consciousness. I guess that was the end of it. - I came round at home again, as I always did after my adventures. But this time I felt it was different. Both the first and the second time I simply fell asleep in the game world, while now I’d been, well, obliterated. - My head hurt, so I took some painkillers and went for breakfast. But I was already thinking whether I’d be able to come back to that world, or to any other, for that matter. - I played until I fell asleep again… and woke up in what felt like a couple of hours, lying face down on my keyboard. Yep, that was really the end.

What Would Life Be Like Without Metals?
What Would Life Be Like Without Metals?
2 dagar sedan
So what would life be like without metals? You know, copper, silver, lead, iron, and whatnot. What if they all just disappeared overnight? As if some has meddled with our metal. “So, no more spoons and coins? Big deal!” you say. Not so fast! You can go ahead and say goodbye to that phone of yours. And the tablet, TV, computer, all the blinky fun stuff. They’re not just made of plastic and a glass screen. Metals are most often used as conductors of electric current. Without them, all our flashy toys are useless. Plus, they have metal parts inside them. And you know what all that means? All modern ways of communication are no longer...

This metal-free world has also lost all modern means of transportation! - Metal is used to conduct electric currents. No artificial light source will work without metal. - But electricity isn’t just about lights and sockets. You won’t have running water - the main station uses electricity! - Musicians won’t have any instruments! Guitars might be made from wood, but those strings are usually steel. - From the gym to the hospital, this place also looks quite different! Without metals, it won’t be possible to carry out an operation - even X-rays won’t be possible! - Hope you have something valuable to trade with the doctor for taking care of you! Of course, there are no more metal coins - that’s obvious. - Besides the steel frame keeping the whole thing standing, a lot of the construction materials like concrete and cement have metals in them too! So, I guess we get to live in straw huts! - About 3% of your total body weight is just metals. - A person needs calcium for strong bones and teeth. So without it, our skeleton would become fragile like glass. - Zinc keeps the immune system in working order. That’s what helps your body fight off sicknesses and heal cuts and wounds! - You also have enough iron in you to make a small nail. Iron helps saturate the body's cells with oxygen. - Speaking of oxygen, magnesium plays a similar role in plants as iron does with moving oxygen in animals - it’s essential for photosynthesis. - Without the core, Earth loses its magnetic field. And we need that protective magnetic bubble because it keeps the ozone layer in place! - For that matter, all the Earth’s layers are made up of different metals. The mantle has a bunch of iron, magnesium, and aluminum. - The crust is mostly oxygen, but it also has aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

What If the Asteroid Had Been 10 Seconds Late
What If the Asteroid Had Been 10 Seconds Late
3 dagar sedan
You wake up because the ground is shaking. Ah, nothing new - a Diplodocus has just passed by your house. You look out of the window - oh, no! Nope, you haven't somehow come round in Jurassic Park. That's what your life would’ve been if the asteroid had hit Earth just several seconds later. Yep, the very asteroid that collided with our planet about 65 million years ago, causing havoc across the globe and wiping dinosaurs out. It turns out that if this asteroid had fallen a mere 10 seconds later, you wouldn't recognize Earth these days. Let's see what your day in this new (even though only for you) world would look like!

Most dinos were multicolored, which helped them to hide in the environment they lived in. - But dinos being so great at camouflaging themselves made human vision much sharper. Otherwise, they wouldn't have been able to notice well-disguised animals. - In the real world, before the asteroid hit Earth, the biggest part of the planet was covered with tropical forests. Vegan dinosaurs roaming there were huge, slow, and clumsy. - In our imaginary world, the asteroid let dinosaurs live to see the in nutritious plants evolve into something much better - flowering plants, berries, and fruit. - They were becoming smaller and smaller until a big part of them moved to live on trees and started to drink nectar. - People managed to tame some of these miniature animals - that's where the pet you found under your bed comes from! - By following their evolutionary route, dinos prevented mammals from evolving and developing. That's why in the dino-world, people appeared much later than in our real world. - Even though the asteroid was several seconds late, the planet was developing pretty much in the same way. As for the hoofed animals, mammals, and most predators that live on our planet today, they didn't appear at all. - There are tiny dinos that spend most of their time in holes and burrows, just like our moles and lizards. Some dinosaurs lost their plumage and grew fur. - You can't help but notice some other difference between life in our world and the one in the world full of dinosaurs. For example, since there are no cows and other hoofed animals, and dinos can't produce milk, there are no dairy products in supermarkets. - By crashing into Earth, the asteroid caused an abrupt temperature drop and the disappearance of three-fourths of all animal species that were living on our planet at that time. - But if the asteroid had fallen several seconds later, it would have landed in the deep ocean. The water would have taken the edge off the collision, and the hit wouldn't have had such dramatic consequences. - It hit the ground at the speed of 20 miles per second and blew clouds of dust, soil, and rocks into the air. This debris not only went up to the upper layers of the atmosphere but also reached space. - Sea inhabitants were more protected from the disastrous after-effects of the collision. But not for long. Plankton couldn't live without sunlight, and when it disappeared, small fish that fed on it didn't survive either. - Those animals who were hibernating during the moment of impact or lived in burrows survived, but they also had a hard time trying to fend off hunger.

Why Phones Are Getting Slow These Days
Why Phones Are Getting Slow These Days
3 dagar sedan
Ah, that new-phone thrill! Yet just a few months later, you notice what was once the sportscar of phones is now crawling like an old clunker. Why does that happen, and how can you speed yours up? It’ll struggle when it has too many apps installed and running in the background, there’s hardly any storage space on it, it’s overworked and overheated, your operating system is out-of-date, and your battery deserves a happy retirement. It can also just be a matter of perception when you see an ad for a newer model and think of yours as something outdated and slow. But let’s see what you can do to speed your phone up! Other videos you might like: Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why sezone.info/view/am5iNHJkYUtXNms.html& 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone sezone.info/view/MFotcExvdnZxa2c.html& Stop Using Your Phone Sitting on the Toilet sezone.info/view/SF96YkdiNXlCdEk.html& TIMESTAMPS: Give it a restart 1:52 Update your phone 2:26 Free up some space 3:00 Sort your apps 3:39 Try lightweight versions of apps 4:17 Turn down the graphics 4:34 Clear your cache 4:59 Turn Bluetooth on only when you need it 5:39 Disable automatic background processes 5:50 Replace the battery 6:27 Restore to factory settings 7:00 #smartphone #gadgets #brightside SUMMARY: - As simple as it sounds, sometimes just restarting your phone is all it needs to kick it into high gear. The reason for its snail’s pace is often a misbehaving app. - Keeping your Operating System up-to-date is good for your gadget because updates include the latest security patches and fixes for some common issues. - Your phone needs at least 10% of available storage free to be able to function correctly. You can see how much storage you have and which folders or apps are eating the most memory in your Settings. - Most phones come with bloatware - apps that are pre-installed and useless if we’re being honest. Sometimes you also install apps to get a discount at a store or just to try it out. - If you just can't say good riddance to some bulky apps, at least replace them with lighter versions. - An ambient display keeps you up-to-date with all the important notifications, and you don't even have to unlock your phone to see them. But… it eats up your battery life, and you know what it does to your phone speed already. - Your built-in browser keeps a cache of the web pages you visit with cookies, login information, and other data to help you navigate through them easier. But when the cache is too full, your phone slows down. - Hey, is your Bluetooth on right now? Is it connected to anything? If not, then turn it off. It’s a real drag for your phone! - The older your phone's battery gets, the more likely it is to shut down unexpectedly, even when it was charged well enough. - Resetting your phone deletes all the apps and data you’ve had on it, so make sure you back it up on cloud storage or a computer before you wipe it clean.

What If Gravity Suddenly Disappeared
What If Gravity Suddenly Disappeared
3 dagar sedan
Remember that unsatisfactory feeling as a kid when you’d try to jump in the air as high as possible, and something brings you back to the ground? Well, that is Gravity. Like your mother, it's always there, it never changes, and you can’t break it’s rules. But that's for the better! If one day, the Earth's gravity disappeared, the consequences would be flat out disastrous. Gravity depends on the mass, which is, in turn, related to the matter. The more matter you have, the bigger the mass is. And the bigger the mass is, the stronger an object's gravitational pull is. You might have noticed that the gravity on our planet never changes, right? That's because the mass of the Earth always remains the same. But what if we imagined that one day, our planet would give off a terrifying “crack”, and gravity would just disappear? Other videos you might like: The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Has Been Solved sezone.info/view/cV81bjdVUmQyR2s.html& What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean? sezone.info/view/MFBaOEt3bHhoSWs.html& A Mysterious Object Punched a Hole in the Milky Way, Scientists Are Confused sezone.info/view/X2lKc0VkaEZnemM.html TIMESTAMPS: What gravity is 0:32 We would simply fly off into space 2:03 The Earth would lose the Moon 🌒 3:07 No air to breathe 3:25 The Earth would break into pieces 4:01 What if gravity, on the contrary, became stronger? 4:32 💪 #gravity #space #brightside SUMMARY: - Gravity is a force that draws atoms toward each other. Our planet is a big-big number of atoms, crammed together. That's why its gravitational pull is very real and very perceptible. - The more matter you have, the bigger the mass is. And the bigger the mass is, the stronger an object's gravitational pull is. - Should huge chunks of the planet get ripped out from under your feet, the gravity would gradually change as well. - The most obvious outcome would be floating. I mean that you, the bed you've been sleeping on, your alarm clock, and your cup of unfinished tea would instantly rise into the air. - If the gravity got switched off, anything unattached to the ground would simply fly off into space. People unlucky enough to be outside when the gravity disappears would be gone in the blink of an eye. - Those people inside buildings would be safer, but not for long. It's true that man-made structures are supposed to be firmly rooted to the ground. - Furthermore, the Earth would lose one of its best friends - the Moon. The only thing keeping the Moon from floating away and keeping our planet's natural satellite in orbit is the Earth's gravity. - Later, when life on Earth would cease to exist completely (what with no air and water), the lack of gravity would finally take its toll on the planet itself. - Without the main force holding things together, it would likely break into pieces and float off into space. - What if gravity, on the contrary, became stronger, and not only on the Earth, but everywhere in the Universe? Would it influence your life? - If the gravity changed even slightly, it’d completely disrupt the existing balance, and the Earth would move into a new orbit. As a result, our planet would start traveling about 10% closer to the Sun. - Bridges wouldn't stand any chance; neither would large buildings, such as skyscrapers. Smaller houses might remain standing for some time, but they’d need to be reinforced. - Experiments in centrifuges show that people can easily tolerate two times the Earth's gravity for up to 22 hours with no harm to their health. - Dormant volcanoes that’ve been sleeping for thousands of years would wake up and start changing the surface of the planet. - If gravity became twice as strong as it is now, the Earth would spiral into the sun at a dizzying rate.

What If Only One Baby Was Born in a Year
What If Only One Baby Was Born in a Year
3 dagar sedan
Three hundred and sixty thousand babies are born every day around the world. But what if there weren’t quite so many? What if, for one year, only a single baby was born? It’s not necessary to get into the biology of how this would happen. So let’s just pretend the stork took a year-long holiday and forgot to call a sub. The moment the first doctor makes an innocuous Facebook post about not having many new patients, the conspiracy train would get rolling. As scientists around the globe struggle to explain what just happened, people would come up with their own answers. Many might believe that it’s the beginning of the end of the world...

That might sound farfetched, but mass panic has happened before over less real threats. - Let’s say about ten months into the year without newborns, the world breathes a sigh of relief as the year’s first and only baby is born, happy and healthy. And for the fun of it, let's say that this baby is you. - As the only baby of the year, you'd be a celebrity before you were even born. The whole world would know your name before you could even walk. - Life isn’t just going to suddenly go back to normal after something like this. - For starters, companies that specialize in things for babies would definitely have a rough fiscal year. - While children can start eating solid food after about six to eight months, most won't be ready to ditch baby food entirely until they're around two. - Where things get complicated is when it comes to education and healthcare. - Maternity wards aren't going to see any use for about a year. - Every year for twelve years, schools around the world would be missing almost an entire grade's worth of students. - This could lead to teachers being laid off, potentially disrupting the education system for years to come. - On the plus side, there’ll be less competition for you in getting into the dream college of your choice.

What If You Were Invited to Have Tea with the Queen
3 dagar sedan
So you wake up one morning, and an owl brings you … no, not an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, but an invitation to have afternoon tea with Her Majesty the Queen of England herself! Oh, my! Aren’t you a special one? Have you learned all the DOs and DON’Ts of royal tea protocol? “Afternoon tea” is served at around 4 o'clock and isn't just a snack but also a social affair. That means, get ready for plenty of etiquette rules! For example, just because there was no exact dress code on the invite doesn't mean you can dress the same way you do when you go to the grocery store on Sundays!

So start with sugar, if you need any, then fill the cup up to about three-quarters using a strainer. It's placed over your cup for that reason. - Now that there’s milk and sugar in your tea, you want to stir it. Don’t make a little whirlpool in the cup by stirring the tea in circular motions! You need to stir it back and forth from 12 to 6 if you imagine it like the face of a clock. - As much as you want to warm up your hands, don't wrap them around your tea! The proper way to do it is to hold the loop of the handle with your index finger and thumb. - British royals don't really stick their pinkies up to show how posh they are. I even heard extending it is a pretty rude gesture. - This saucer looks fantastic, it's the most exquisite pottery and everything, but please leave it on the table. It's only okay to hold it together with the cup when there's no table in front of you, like when you’re standing. - When the cup is on the table, it should always point at the 3 on your imaginary clock. If you're left-handed, you can relocate it to 9 o'clock for convenience. - When drinking, focus on the teacup! Don't look over it around the room. - Don’t slurp or gulp it down! As you lift your cup, take just one sip, then carefully put it back. And stop blowing on it! - And now comes the most exciting part - food! It’s served on a pyramid of three tiers. - The sandwiches you’ll see at a royal tea party will be bite-sized and without crusts. Her Majesty’s personal favorites are with fillings of cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and mayonnaise, or ham and mustard. - So, the top of the pyramid is where you’ll find the sweets. Crispy cookies, strawberry tarts, honey and cream sponge, and many other kinds of cakes all gorgeous and fancy as can be. - It looks like the party is coming to an end. To wrap it up, take the napkin off your lap and leave it to the left of your cup and saucer.

What If Just One Planet Disappeared from the Solar System
What If Just One Planet Disappeared from the Solar System
4 dagar sedan
Have you ever thought about what will happen to your solar system’s “perfect harmony” if it loses a planet? For example, the closest planet to the Sun is Mercury, right? Oh, it’s so small! So with Mercury gone, how’s Earth looking? Hmm, no changes in the solar system. It’s all about gravity. Every object that has some mass attracts other objects because of its gravitational force. The larger the mass, the greater the force it has. Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system, so it’s not too massive in space terms. But what about other planets? Other videos you might like: A Potentially Habitable Super Earth Has Been Discovered sezone.info/view/NmRVWUs0MUVsTzA.html& NASA Has Just Discovered a New Planet! sezone.info/view/VE9Hc3dCenhPNTQ.html& 10 Facts About Our Planet You Didn't Learn In School sezone.info/view/QlJYZGpjNXl4VnM.html& TIMESTAMPS: Mercury 0:29 Venus 1:15 Mars 2:04 Jupiter 2:58 Saturn 4:16 Uranus 5:02 Neptune 5:46 The Moon 6:43 #space #planets #brightside SUMMARY: - Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system, so it’s not too massive in space terms. - At 50 million miles away, Mercury is no doubt far from Earth, so the gravitational force between the two of them isn’t that strong. - Venus is the hottest planet in yourc solar system. One day here is almost 117 Earth days. - There’s a massive asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids, as you know, aren’t Earth’s best friends. - Jupiter usually holds them together with its strong gravity, but from time to time, they break free and start moving toward the Sun. - Mars also has gravity to boast and acts somewhat like a slingshot that speeds up asteroids in the direction of Earth. - Jupiter weighs 3 times more than all its neighboring planets combined! - With its massive gravitational force, Jupiter has protected Earth from asteroids and other space debris over the past 4½ billion years! - The sun’s gravitational pull is sending all that stuff toward the inner planets, and that includes Earth! There will also be some small changes in the orbits of other planets, but that would be some thousands of years later. - It’s time for Saturn. You can’t mistake it for any other planet thanks to those gorgeous rings! Scientists say they’ll disappear one day as Saturn’s immense gravity pulls them down in an icy rain. - Uranus is massive as well, the 3rd largest planet in the solar system. - Without Neptune’s gravitational pull keeping things stable, orbits are crossing, and celestial bodies are crashing into each other! - What about the Moon, though? Oh, my! What just happened to the Earth’s axis? It’s so tilted, even more than it was before! The weather down there has gone wild too - there are no more seasons at all, and new ice ages are on their way! - The day now lasts only 6 to 12 hours because there’s no more pull of the moon to slow down the Earth’s rotation. There are no more lunar or solar eclipses to watch. - It looks like out of all the planets in your sun’s complex system, only Jupiter’s disappearance would be a major problem for Earth. So I guess it’s true what they say: the solar system really is a delicate and harmonious balance!

What Would Happen If You Swallowed a Scorpion
What Would Happen If You Swallowed a Scorpion
5 dagar sedan
You’ve been lost in the desert for days, and you know that you desperately need something to eat. You drag yourself to the weak shade of a straggly tree and out from under a rock crawls…a scorpion. Yum! Wait, you can’t believe you’re considering it… but how bad could it be? Scorpions are packed full of protein-just what you need! How hard can they pinch? And how venomous are these things? The least of your worries are the claws or pincers. Scorpions can pinch, but you should be more worried about the poisonous stinger. A sting is way more painful-and dangerous-than a pinch. Other videos you might like: What If You Were the Last Person on Earth sezone.info/view/N3VHQUlOTUFpTDA.html& What If You Stopped Sleeping for a Week? sezone.info/view/WEZDZHlpM2dVRms.html& What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider sezone.info/view/UHQ3NWhZVjQ5YXc.html& TIMESTAMPS: How to catch a scorpion 1:34 Can you actually swallow it? 3:18 When scorpions ARE a good option 4:21 How to cook a scorpion 4:43 The versatile delicacy 5:40 If you do get stung, what should you do? 6:44 Watch out for the bark scorpion! 7:27 #scorpion #whatif #brightside SUMMARY: - There are over 1,500 species of scorpions, but you’re in the desert, so you’re probably dealing with the Common Desert Scorpion. - It’s a brownish-yellow color, and it might have brown hairs on it. This scorpion uses those hairs to pick up vibrations from the air and ground to find food. - To catch one, though, you’re going to have to wait until dark. Why?? Most scorpions glow under a UV light! Luckily, you have one. - Next, you need to set a trap. Around the perimeter of the rock, or near the holes, dig a hole large enough to set a cup in, and pack the sand tight around the opening. - It’s best to remove the stinger and venom gland; if you don’t, the scorpion would try to sting you all the way down. - But if this really was a survival situation, scorpions ARE a good option. The legs are surprisingly meaty and, like lobster, the best meat is in the tail and pincers! - After you catch your scorpion, you’re somehow able to start a fire, and decide to cook it. This is much safer. - Once the scorpion has an even brown color, it’s ready to eat! It should have a nice crunchy texture. - In some countries, scorpion is actually a versatile delicacy! Cooked scorpions are served as street food, and make a nice soup! - Scorpions aren’t just found in remote deserts; they’re common in hot, dry places like Arizona or parts of Australia, and they can wander into your home! - If you’re stung, look for symptoms of an allergic reaction, like a rash or hives. You’ll probably have some swelling and itchiness, so put some ice on it. - A scorpion sting doesn’t usually cause a lot of problems for most people, unless you have a serious allergy to the venom. - If you live in the Southwest US-states like Arizona, Texas, and Nevada-watch out for the bark scorpion! They’re brown with a darker back, and up to 3 inches long. - If you think you’ve been stung by a bark scorpion, it’s best to just go to the emergency room.

What If Your Weight Was Just 2 Lbs (1 Kg)
What If Your Weight Was Just 2 Lbs (1 Kg)
5 dagar sedan
Imagine that you weigh just 1 pound. You'd feel very light, but life would become much harder. Tapping “likes” on photos would take much more than just tapping. You’ve been scrolling Instagram feed, but it feels like you’ve run 6 miles on a treadmill. You leave the apartment and take the stairs because the elevator simply won't work if you weigh less than 30 pounds. The weather outside better be warm and without strong wind. Otherwise, it may blow you away. And you better turn off vibration on your phone. With your mass, it will be tantamount to a minor earthquake. Other videos you might like: What If You Were the Last Person on Earth sezone.info/view/N3VHQUlOTUFpTDA.html& What If You Stopped Showering for a Year? sezone.info/view/Y2txQWtiUGwtZTQ.html& What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider sezone.info/view/UHQ3NWhZVjQ5YXc.html& TIMESTAMPS: Light life 0:27 Weighing 1 pound, you can... 2:05 What will be completely impossible for you 2:25 Very light life 2:53 The lightest person on Earth 5:14 Things that can happen to your weight 5:40 How much will you weigh on other planets? 7:07 #whatif #yourweight #brightside SUMMARY: - On average, a person eats 3.3 pounds of food per day, and about 60 tons of food in a lifetime. With your wee weight, don't rush to fill the fridge, because all you need to stay full all day is a glass of milk and a couple of corn flakes. - However, if you do fall, you won’t be hurt, because due to the small weight, the pulling force will act differently on you. - At music concerts, you can easily reach the stage, running over the heads of other spectators. - To type something on a computer keyboard, you’ll have to slam it with your fist, and to play the piano, you’ll have to walk on the keys. - Even a slight pressure of water from the shower will stamp you to the bottom of the tub. - What if we become even lighter? Say, 1 oz? You can forget about the stairs and the elevator. Go out the window, because if you fall from a height of even 10,000 feet, you will land unharmed. - Moreover, your weight is just a little more than that of... the soul. Indeed, according to research by Dr. MacDougall, the weight of the human soul is 0.7 oz. - Any insect is dangerous for you. And the flap of the butterfly wing will be equivalent to the wind from a powerful fan. - Now imagine that if every person on Earth weighed 1 oz, then the weight of all of the people would be 198 thousand tons! It's like 4 "Titanics" or 100 Statues of Liberty! - The weight of the lightest person on Earth was recorded in the 19th century in Mexico. Lucia Zarate's weight was only 4.6 pounds. - And the heaviest person also happened to be a resident of Mexico - Juan Pedro Franco with a weight of 1,300 pounds. - Did you notice that it is much easier to slim down in summer than in winter? This happens because the human body specifically stores as much fat as possible in order to survive the cold. - Not only the level of physical activity and the number of calories consumed can change the mass of our body. Stress does a great job too. - In addition, excess pounds may appear because of a lack of sleep. If you don’t get enough shut-eye, the body doesn't generate energy and stresses out. - The mass of our body, in fact, determines the force with which we are attracted to the Earth. The larger the mass, the stronger the attraction. - You’ll be the lightest on Pluto - there your weight will only be 9 pounds. - But there are places in our galaxy where gravity is millions of times greater than on our planet. These places are called neutron stars.

Why Car Windows Have Little Black Dots
Why Car Windows Have Little Black Dots
5 dagar sedan
Every now and then, you get stuck in traffic. So what do you do? You stare blankly at your windshield, right. And you probably notice the little black dots around the edges. Ever wondered what those are for? But black dots aren’t the only part of your car that might have you wondering, “What on Earth is that for?” Since you’re still looking at your windshield, did you notice that little line with an arrow pointing down and AS1 written on it? Or what about the black lines going across the back window and that little snowflake on your dashboard? Let's figure out! Other videos you might like: 11 Simple Tricks to Protect Your Car in Winter sezone.info/view/ZmREWkdQaUxxcjg.html If You See This On Your Car, Don't Touch It And Ask for Help! sezone.info/view/OHlDZ3BDblh5VWM.html 7 Tricks That Can Make Your Car Last Longer sezone.info/view/OFFzeDNHeTEtZDA.html TIMESTAMPS: The purpose of black dots 0:28 The AS Line 2:16 Lines on the Rear Window 3:04 The Snowflake Light 3:51 Gas Tank Locator 4:35 Drowsiness Detector 5:24 Stability Control 6:03 Ceiling Handles 6:29 Conversation Mirror 6:59 Fully Customizable Icons 7:29 🚘 Find extra storage spaces in your car! 🚘 7:55 #cars #driving #brightside SUMMARY: - The dots come out of the black band that goes around the window. That band is called the frit. It's the ceramic paint that protects the sealant holding your windshield in place. - They make a nice gradient transition from the black frit to the clear window. This gradient is also a safety feature. - The black dots are there to even out the heat and minimize optical distortion. Without them, the windshield would deform. - Those black dots above the rearview mirror have another important function: they help protect your eyes from the sun while you're driving. - AS1 means that the glass should let in no less than 75% of the light. The line and arrow mean “from this point and downward.” S - Have you ever noticed a little snowflake light up on your dashboard? This is the Frost or Freeze Warning, and it lights up automatically to inform you that the temperature outside has dropped so much that the roads are likely to freeze. - Gas tank locator tells you which side the tank is on! By the way, there are no strict regulations as to which side the tank should be on. - Drowsiness detector does exactly what it says: if the car “feels” that you’ve been on the road for too long or you keep slowly drifting out of your lane, then this indicator will come on. - When sensors decide your vehicle is about to spin out or isn't turning far enough, a little skidding car icon lights up on the dashboard. - The original purpose of ceiling handles was to help you get in and out of the car. - In most mini-vans and some crossover SUVs, you can pull down a convex mirror from a special compartment in front of your rearview mirror. It helps you keep an eye on the kids, pets, or just passengers in the back seats without taking your eyes off the road for a second longer than needed.

Why In-Flight Maps Show Sunken Ships
Why In-Flight Maps Show Sunken Ships
6 dagar sedan
Hey, here’s a fun fact to tell your family around the dinner table: there are about 3 million shipwrecks in oceans all over the world! Ok, don’t lead with that one… But did you know why certain airlines show their location on the in-flight map! That seems a little odd, so why would they do it? First of all, we should always remember these events because they affected so many lives and likely changed the course of history! Plus, some ships not only have historical value but ecological importance too! If a vessel is under the water long enough to turn into a reef, the area can become rich with biodiversity, thus warranting protection.

This ship went down in history for carrying the most massive gold cup ever discovered. - SS Central America sank near the coast of the Carolinas because of a hurricane in 1857, but it wasn’t found until 1988. All the recovered gold was valued between $100-150 million. - The first-ever sunken ship expedition on record was found by Greek divers in 1900. It was filled with glass, pottery, and statues. - Many of the passengers on board the Titanic were incredibly wealthy people. The collection of gold, silver, diamonds, and pricey artifacts it carried surpass the $300-million mark. - The Whydah Gally sank in 1717 but wasn’t discovered until 1984. Precious artifacts are still being recovered, and they include jewelry, cannons, and coins. - The Atocha went down off the coast of the Florida Keys in 1622.

Why Buses Open Doors on Railroad Tracks
Why Buses Open Doors on Railroad Tracks
6 dagar sedan
Before it became law, school buses didn’t have to open their doors at railroads. Sure, they stopped to check for an oncoming train. But when visibility is low, say, in fog or during a snowstorm, that method can prove dangerously ineffective. Everything changed in the 1930s, but the situation still wasn’t ideal. Originally, a student was assigned as a “lookout” during each ride. They’d get off the bus once it stopped and look both ways down the railroad crossing. This continued until it was decided that it was too big a responsibility put on these young volunteers’ shoulders.

By opening the door AND their side window, a bus driver is better able to hear if a train is coming. - Besides coming to a full stop 5 to 15 feet before the crossing (plus opening the door and window), bus drivers must turn off anything that creates distracting sounds, including the radio and fans. - White reflects the sun’s heat better, so it keeps the inside of the bus 10° cooler. - The dark tint of the windows blocks a lot of sunlight from getting in, and it retains interior heat in the winter! - Most buses don’t have power steering. This system normally helps the driver use less force to turn the wheels. Buses don’t have it because there’s always the risk that it could fail. - So far, 8 have passed laws requiring school buses to have seatbelts. Occasionally, individual school districts have the freedom to decide whether to implement them. - There are currently about 427,000 school buses in America alone! - If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own big yellow bus, you can go to eBay now and purchase one for about $3,000. - An average school bus can reach a max of 65 mph (although local speed limit laws for them are usually much lower!). - The largest bus in the world is the Neoplan Jumbocruiser. They stopped production in 1992, but the jumbo-sized coach didn’t disappoint! - The first buses were pretty much horse-drawn farm wagons in the late 1800s. The carriage was labeled “Public School” and it transported children that lived far away. (Most kids still walked to school at that time.) - According to the American School Bus Council, buses save an estimated $7.7 billion every year! - Buses also help our environment. If every child in a community rode the bus to school, it would save more than 2 billion gallons of fuel! - One education report found that students who rode the bus were much less likely to miss school. - There are perks to being a school bus driver! On field trips, they’re sometimes gifted free entrance to those destinations.

Why There Is a Leap Day in February
Why There Is a Leap Day in February
7 dagar sedan
Have you ever wondered where leap years come from? Where do they get those extra hours that add up to a whole day? And what if you’re born on a leap day? A year is the period of time it takes the Earth to make a full circle around the Sun. The most accurate calculations say that our planet finishes its rotation after 365 days, 5 hours, and 48 minutes. Each year, 5 hours and 48 minutes are uncounted, and when 4 years pass, these hours and minutes add up to an extra day. But the calculations weren't always so exact.

Every 2 years they would add an extra month of 22 days to it. - The year with an extra day was called “Bis Sextus” which means “the second sixth” in Latin. - In ancient Rome, they celebrated the New year on March 1, which is why they added the leap day to the end of February. - Astronomers noticed that the spring equinox happened much earlier than March 21 - the date put in the calendar. - Clearly it was necessary to correct the Julian calendar, and in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII did so by having astronomers cut down the number of leap years. - If you happened to be born on a leap day, you overcame the odds of 1 in 1461. - In the 18th century, a famous German moralist wrote an essay called “Consolations for the Unfortunates Born on the 29th of February”. He suggested a detailed scheme of how they should celebrate their birthday each year. - In the 19th century, an interesting marriage tradition became popular. Usually, men had to kneel down on one knee to propose to a woman. But in a leap year, women could propose to men. - Leap years were also chosen to hold one of the main global sports events - the Olympic games. - If you get a fixed salary each year, you'll get stiffed in a leap year. You just have to work one day for free!

I Did Murph Workout for 30 Days, Here's How My Body Changed
I Did Murph Workout for 30 Days, Here's How My Body Changed
7 dagar sedan
A Crossfit workout consists of much more intense circuit training, which focuses on the whole body instead of just one part. If you've ever visited the gym regularly, then you know that some days are “leg” days, others are “arm” days and so on. With Crossfit, you use almost every muscle you have during each session. A 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and a 1-mile run again. That's what the Murph workout consists of. Sound tough? Absolutely! But that's the reason why I decided to do it for 30 days in a row. Challenge accepted!

The first changes in my body 5:27 Day 21. The turning point 5:52 Day 30. Did I achieve my goal? 6:29 My results 💪 6:54 #crossfit #MurphWorkout #brightside SUMMARY: - If I were a fitness noob, I’d never even think about going through this challenge. Because it can be dangerous for your health. - Don’t work out on an empty stomach. Your body needs fuel for a good performance. - Don’t try to sprint the first mile. It’s your warm-up, so don’t waste all your energy on it. - Don’t forget about breaks. Have a 30-second rest between reps. Halfway through the workout, take 3-4 minutes to wipe off the sweat and drink some water. - Being in pretty good shape, running the first mile was easy peasy. After that, I went through 20 sets that consisted of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, and 15 squats each. - I realized that I forgot about one important thing - stretching. As you probably know, it helps with post-workout soreness. - I guess I could say that the first week went smooth. I mean, of course, I still felt unbelievably exhausted after each session. But I was happy that I wasn’t tempted to give up. - Halfway through my ordeal, I noticed the first changes in my body. You see, I work at the office and must wear shirts and ties. And when I put on my favorite shirt after the workout, I realized it was too tight on me. - The beginning of the third week was the turning point in my challenge. I guess my body was just mad at me because I put it through such strenuous training without a single day of rest. - The last workout was the most satisfying one I’ve ever had. The pain and tiredness didn’t even bother me. I guess I can chalk this up as a victory. - I got way stronger. Also, my body became more defined. Especially the lats on my back! I didn’t take measurements, but I’m pretty sure my back got wider. - But the most important changes were in my mind. I can’t remember the last time I was this proud of myself. - I’m so grateful for this difficult but rewarding experience that I decided to trade in my gym membership for the Murph workout every day.

14 Unbeatable Records No One Is Able to Repeat

People are fascinating, it seems like we can’t tolerate any boundaries. We love to push the limits somehow. This striving for the extraordinary makes a few of us look for records to break. But some world records seem to be unbeatable! Some are just impossible to surpass, while others you wouldn’t even want to challenge as they’re simply too weird. One 69-year-old woman from South Korea, became a local celebrity and symbol of perseverance. All she did was pass a driving test. On her 960th try. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always feel good to be a record holder. Charles Osborne learned it the hard way, since he was the man who had hiccups for 68 years straight and without any relief...

Yet the record wasn’t set there but 1,307 ft away where Matt found himself almost absolutely unharmed a couple of minutes later. - There aren’t many daredevils out there who would try to beat a record Tom Bagnall set on his jet-propelled go-kart. In 2018, the British engineer sped up to 112 mph in a small car that is in no way suited for such speed. - It would be great if no one would have to fight with an 80 ft high wave with nothing at their side but a surfboard. This is what Rodrigo Koxa, a Brazilian surfer, did in November of 2018 in Nazare, Portugal. - But the record for the most dice stacked on a cat’s paw belongs to LC Siew and his loyal cat Bibi from Malaysia, and was set on June 18, 2017. - What do you think a priest could do in his spare time? For a Canadian pastor of St Paul’s Lutheran Church Kevin Fast, it’s tugging enormous vehicles using nothing more than the power of his own muscles. - Radhakant Bajpai - the man with the longest ear hairs. According to him, he used to tell to people around him that his hair would one day become a great achievement. - Charles Osborne's hiccups first started in 1922, when he was 29-years-old. His hiccups were also quite frequent - 40 times per minute, and were only reduced when he was lucky enough to fall asleep, although he still hiccupped 20 times per minute. - Rolf Buchholz started adding body modifications when he was only a kid with small tattoos and piercing. Now he is 59 years old and has whopping 516 body modifications total. - Adam Hegyi is one of the best Doom players - the game that gave new life to speedrunning. In 1998 he became the one to fully go through level called Phobos Anomaly on highest difficulty without any hacks or glitches used. - Throughout the history of traditional sports, there was never a boxer who would’ve beaten legendary American boxer Archie Moore in a number of knockouts. He was able to do 131 KOs in his career! - Rocky Marciano is the 6th greatest heavyweight boxer of all time and the only boxer in history who wasn’t ever defeated. He fought 49 times and won them all with 43 knockouts. - On November 24th, 1960 famous basketball player Wilt Chamberlain did the impossible: 55 rebounds in a single game - his Philadelphia Warriors versus Boston Celtics.

Never Use Your Phone When Pumping Gas
Never Use Your Phone When Pumping Gas
8 dagar sedan
The average person spends about 4 hours a day on their phone. That means in a single week, our eyes are glued to the screen for over an entire day! While there’s nothing wrong with a little screen time every now and then, there are some places where your phone should stay in your pocket… Have you ever been texting your friends as you got in the car and forgot you left your coffee on the roof? Imagine something like that, and you might have an idea why so many gas stations have signs up warning customers to stay off their phones as they’re pumping gas. Also, some people believe the device can shoot out radio waves or sparks and catch the gas on fire? Let's find out if that's true! Other videos you might like: 10 Driving Hacks That'll Make You Spend Less On Gas sezone.info/view/WE1mSjBGQ3p0dGc.html& 7 Driving Habits That Ruin Your Car and Drain Your Wallet sezone.info/view/SXZraWtzM3d5cFk.html What Will Happen to Us Before 2025 sezone.info/view/SjJ2SGJ1R3N4eHM.html TIMESTAMPS: Can your phone shoot out sparks? 😮 0:32 What if you damaged a nozzle? 1:01 Mobile phones on aircraft 2:52 Why it was a major concern in the 1990s 4:02 Smartphone use in hospitals 6:53 #smartphones #staysafe #brightside SUMMARY: - They put these signs up to keep distracted drivers from pulling away from the pump with the nozzle still attached! When that happens, you risk gas leaking out all over the place, and then there’s the chance of it lighting up. - Fortunately, this isn’t as much of a threat as it perhaps used to be. Most modern gas pumps feature breakaway nozzles that will seal the pump if they’re pulled on too hard. ] - Either way, the driver, or at least their insurance company, is still responsible for any equipment they break. If the driver’s lucky, they’ll only need to pay for the breakaway mechanism to be replaced. - Most airlines require you to switch your phone to airplane mode. The signals produced by wireless devices can interfere with the plane’s electronics. - This phone interference isn’t too much of a problem anymore thanks to modern technology, but it was a major concern in the 1990s. - Devices from that era were notorious for their ability to interfere with nearby electronics, and that was a risk airlines weren’t willing to take. - There’s also the issue of radio waves interfering with a plane’s communications. Again, it’s nothing too dramatic. - The third reason why you’re asked to turn off your phone on the plane has to do with your wireless carrier. - Cell towers were designed around some basic assumption about where their users are going to be located. Thousands of feet in the air close to the speed of sound was not one of them. - The good news is, these risks are all fairly remote, and there’s never been a major accident caused by someone using their phone on a plane. - Studies have shown that electronic devices can tamper with some of the more sensitive hospital equipment. - The scientists concluded that 3 ft was far enough away to be safe. Although, they do recommend keeping mobile phones out of the room entirely just to be on the super safe side!

How Fluoroscopy (X-Ray) Works
How Fluoroscopy (X-Ray) Works
9 dagar sedan
A hundred years ago an opportunity to literally look through a person would seem crazy to scientists and doctors. In fact, the father of X-rays, German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen, discovered them by accident. But when he was offered to patent his invention, he burst out laughing. He was skeptical about X-rays as he saw no sphere where they could be used. Despite his own attitude towards his discovery, it made a sensation in the scientific community, and the units to measure the amount of X-rays were named after him -- Roentgen.

As a result of this, there appears an X-ray. - The harder the material is, the slower they will move. That’s why human bones slow down X-rays much more than soft tissues that are 70% water. - In fact, X-ray pictures are photo negatives, that’s why lighter spots are called “shadows”. - On November 8, 1895, Roentgen stayed in his laboratory till late at night. When he was going to leave and turned off the light and all the devices he noticed that a bottle with transparent liquid in one of the corners of the laboratory started shining with a green light. - He got interested in an unusual effect and started researching his casual discovery. - His hand also got under the strange ray. What Roentgen saw shocked him - he saw the shade of his hand’s bones! He literally was looking through his hand. - When he was offered to patent his invention, he burst out laughing. He was skeptical about X-rays as he saw no sphere where they could be used. - He was the first scientist in history to receive a Nobel prize in physics but he never patented his invention and granted it to people. - More than a hundred years have passed since X-rays were discovered in 1895, but it is still considered one of the most serious breakthroughs in medicine. - It was not until the second half of the 20th century that X-ray technology was considered not totally safe as it exposes you to radiation. Its effect is different in different body parts. - The dose of stomach and intestine X-rays is equal to what you can get in 3 years of your common life. - The Sun is the greatest source of radiation that tries to get to us from space. - The most unusual area where X-rays are used now is expert evaluation of the authenticity of art pieces. This method was used for the first time 70 years ago and is still the most reliable one. - X-rays are now widely used in archeology too. When they found scrolls in Pompeii, they were so fragile that any attempt to unfold them would ruin them forever. - But X-rays helped to read the text written inside the scrolls without unfolding them!

What If All People Stopped Working for a Day

What a wonderful feeling when you know that tomorrow is your day off and you don’t have to go anywhere. But stop and think -- what if all the people on the planet quit working and everyone took a day off at the same time? Sounds cool, but it sure wouldn't lead to anything good. Okay, so you wake up in the morning after a good night’s sleep. The alarm didn't go off because you don’t have to go anywhere. You're ready to take a shower, so you turn the handle and… dirty water comes flowing out. The water stops with a 'clunk', and then bursts out with such intense pressure that your faucet breaks. The fact is that there's no one to regulate the filtration and pressure of the water. And this is just the beginning.

Short circuits and power outages are widespread throughout the city. - You notice that all the trash cans are full. And there are more and more such piles every minute throughout the city. - Without many other options, you decide to spend some time with friends, but your texts won't go through because the internet and all the cell towers are down, basically leaving all of humanity without communication. - The production of everything has come to a stand-still all over the world. Hospitals, fire departments, and police forces aren't working. - But speaking of that, the whole world’s money circulation has stopped for the day. The planet’s economy is frozen, and all financial institutions have lost a day of revenue. - City lights, neon signs, shop windows are off. All the night clubs are closed. - The next day, the whole planet suffers from the consequences of the previous 24 hours: long lines in supermarkets, crowds of people in the subway, crowded hospitals, traffic jams on the roads. - But the worst part is that your internet service providers still aren't working, because the network operators are trying to restore the web. - Automation is growing daily, and people are increasingly replaced by robots and artificial intelligence. - According to a study by American economists, by 2033, jobs will be reduced by 47% in the United States. - In the Chinese city of Harbin, there's a restaurant where the entire staff of waiters, dishwashers, and cooks are robots.

Why School Buses Always Have White Roofs
Why School Buses Always Have White Roofs
9 dagar sedan
Ever ridden on a school bus? The most prominent thing about them (at least in the U.S.) is that they’re yellow. But their roofs are usually a different color - white. So why is that? Let's figure out! By the way, while the iconic yellow school buses are common around the world there are school buses that are anything but ordinary. And today, we will talk about them too! For example, almost 50% of the Netherlands’ population rides a bike every day to go to work. So the government came up with the idea of a bus for kids ages 4 to 12 that will carry them to school the same way. This bus can fit a driver, 8 students who must pedal, and 3 other students who can sit on a bench in the back.

Actually, using anime characters for modifying school buses is pretty common for Japan. - Imagine a metal box secured to a bike and you’ll get an idea of what a rickshaw is. This mode of transportation is still used for school children in different parts of India. - Topsy-turvy runs on vegetable oil, it tours the whole country to educate kids about eco-friendly alternatives and explain to them how important it is to look for renewable energy sources. - The bike can go as fast as 10 miles per hour, and there’s also a motor installed that helps it get uphill, or when kids feel too tired to pedal. - The suspension monorail is the oldest electric elevated railway with hanging cars. It started operating in 1901. - If you’re ever in Hong Kong, you’ll appreciate the world’s longest outdoor escalator that connects the city's central district with the higher-lying residential neighborhoods. - Shanghai boasts one of the fastest trains in the world. The Maglev - short for “magnetic levitation” - runs at a speed of 267 miles per hour and covers 21 miles in only 8 minutes. - A toboggan is a wicker basket attached to two wooden runners that glide on greased up rags. It’s one of Madeira, Portugal’s most famous attractions, and takes tourists for a 1-mile journey down a curvy road. - In a hurry to get to JFK or Newark Airports from Manhattan island? Then take a helicopter ride! The helicopter service, Gotham Air, launched in 2015 and allows its clients to save tons of time.

Why There Is Light on Earth But Not in Space
Why There Is Light on Earth But Not in Space
10 dagar sedan
If you’re not a morning person, then you’d probably love living on the moon or out in space! The whole “lack of oxygen” thing aside, a ‘round-the-clock night sky sounds pretty tempting! But why is there so much light on Earth, but almost none once you leave our planet? You might think that it’s light during the day and dark at night because the Earth spins on its axis, and the Sun illuminates either hemisphere. That’s part of the reason, but it’s more complicated than that. Our star shines on the Moon too, but the sky above it is always black!

You’ll be able to see the stars even when the sun is blazing on the surface during the lunar day. - In the early 19th century, German astronomer Wilhelm Olbers suggested that the reason the sky is dark at night was a dusty veil that hid most of the stars from us. - Thanks to our fancy powerful telescopes, we now know that it takes light billions of years to get to us from the farthest stars. - Modern telescopes can show us that the light started its journey to the Earth about 10 billion years ago. The more powerful telescopes get, the further back in time we can see. - But don’t all those distant stars give at least some noticeable light on this planet? It’d be like switching on a ton of tiny halogen light bulbs. They’re not as bright as one big LED bulb, but they do give off part of its light. - Space might be empty compared to the Earth’s atmosphere, but there are a lot of gases out there. They move around, form clouds, and serve as a sort of veil hiding most of the light in the Milky Way. - The theory states that the Universe was born in a Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago. Since that time, everything has been moving away from the point where it all began. - Sources of light also move away and spread out, which means space is getting darker, and the number of black areas is growing. - Astronomers think that most of the matter in the universe is invisible, and it looks like black emptiness to the human eye. - If you remember the electromagnetic spectrum from back in school, you’ll know that visible light is just a tiny sliver of all those wavelengths and frequencies. - Red, blue, purple, yellow, orange - the whole color wheel depending on which gases make them up!

What If You Lived for Only 24 Hours
What If You Lived for Only 24 Hours
10 dagar sedan
If we talk about the world, currently, the average life expectancy is 70 years for men and 75 years for women. That might seem like than enough time to check off all the things you have on your to-do list! But maybe there’s more to life than checking boxes. What if people only lived for 24 hours? Assuming we compress 70 years into 24 hours, then approximately 12 minutes after you’re born, you start to crawl. You figure out how to walk 18 minutes after you were born. Five minutes after you started moving not on all fours, but two legs, your mouth begins to produce coherent sounds. Yay, just 23 minutes after you saw the light of day, and you're already a speaking human!

SUMMARY: - At the age of about two hours, you set off for school. You'll have your first full-time job when you're 5 or 6 hours old, and when you're approximately 7 and a half hours old, you'll get your first apartment. - When you're 17 hours and 10 minutes old, your kids are already grown-ups and live separately. At the ripe age of 20 hours, you retire to the nearest lake to live out the remaining hours of your life in peace. - Come to think of it, that's another problem of a 24-hour-long life: you can't travel, because you don't have time for it! - You'll spend about 40 minutes reading newspapers, books, magazines, and other sources of information. - An hour and 20 minutes of your precious life will be wasted in jam-packed public transport or in traffic jams. - You'll listen to music for about 5 hours of your 24-hour-long life. - And if you exercise regularly, your workouts will take up about 24 minutes of your life. - Now, one-third of your existence, which is 8 hours, you'll spend sleeping! - Mayfly is the shortest living animal on the planet, and within 24 hours, it has to complete a full life cycle. Unfortunately, it's nothing much: being born, flying a bit, reproducing, and passing away. - A teeny marine organism called the Gastrotrich has a lifespan of about 72 hours, or 3 days. - As for the animals you don't need a magnifying glass to spot, the shortest living one is the house mouse! It lives no longer than a year. - What would the planet look like if people were immortal? The population of the planet would be so great that there would be no free space for people to live. - Analysts claim that Earth can comfortably sustain approximately 10 billion people. But if nothing changes, we'll reach this number in 17 years or so!

Who Is the Fastest Living Being in the World?
Who Is the Fastest Living Being in the World?

What is the average person walking speed? Actually, humans aren’t that fast. They walk at a humble average speed of 3 mph. But they're already faster than a lot of other land-inhabiting creatures. For example, insects and other bugs are fast only for their tiny sizes. Other animals with more comparable sizes to humans, like sloths, koalas, and giant tortoises, are also left far behind. Sloths live in places where it’s too risky to move fast because predators will see them. So, they move at a sluggish 0.15 mph. And giant tortoises clock out at a max of 0.3 mph. But these animals are among the slowest on our planet.

So, they move at a sluggish 0.15 mph. - And giant tortoises clock out at a max of 0.3 mph. - James is really fit, and he’s been preparing for this day his whole life. That’s why 15 mph is just a jog for him, even if it’s the average speed other people run at. - 28 mph - the fastest running speed ever recorded for a human being. Animals like elephants, squirrels, and even polar bears are stopping to catch their breath behind our speedy friend’s back. - 40 mph - that’s about the top speed he can reach on a bicycle without the help of a motor. It’s just enough to escape from all bears and canines like jackals, dogs, and wolves. - The absolute champ of top speeds on this planet - the cheetah. Sprinting through prairies at 75 mph, it’s crucial for these predators as they chase down extremely fast pronghorn antelopes. - The maximum speed James can hope to achieve without flippers is just 3 mph. That’s barely enough to swim past eels. - The boat is faster than humpback whales, sea lions, and small fish. But Jimmy Crack Corn is already wanting to up the ante. This time, he hops on a giant cruise liner. - Its deafeningly roaring engines can accelerate this metal hulk up to 35 mph, leaving behind barracudas, dolphins, and octopuses. Yeah, those eight-legged creatures can swim surprisingly fast at 25 mph! - The Peregrine Falcon can fly horizontally at an average speed of 56 mph but can bump it up to 69 mph. - There are even quicker feathered beings, like the Bald Eagle soaring through the air at 75 mph and topping at 99 when it really tries.

Are Night Flights Allowed for Helicopters?
Are Night Flights Allowed for Helicopters?
11 dagar sedan
Imagine you’re stuck on the slopes of Mount Everest. There’s no one to help you for frozen miles around, and you can’t move for some reason. Although you’ve sent a distress signal, the night has already fallen, and you’ve lost all hope. But then, out of the cold darkness, a beam of light blinds you. It’s a rescue helicopter, coming for you at last. Despite weirdly popular opinion, this situation is possible. Tricky, granted, but rescue helicopters do fly at night. The myth about night flight operations might have appeared because of one fact: helicopters are really difficult to fly. And that’s a real problem that can preclude a chopper from flying at night. But it depends on many more factors than just poor visibility.

This also helps in different kinds of situations: rescuing people, extinguishing fires, deploying troops, or whatnot. - But despite all their advantages over airplanes, choppers have many potential dangers too, which makes flying them a risky business. - The pilot has to stay inside the machine no matter what, reducing the chances of survival in case of a crash. - Neither civil helicopters, nor emergency service ones have any special reinforcement, so they’re basically unprotected in the air. - When the air is particularly humid and the temperature freezing, ice can appear on the helicopter’s surfaces. It might seem a nuisance, but given the pretty fragile construction of these aircraft, you shouldn’t be surprised that ice may cause control issues or even crashes. - But even good weather can pose a threat, since there’s such a thing as clear air turbulence, or CAT. It’s an unpredictable condition that occurs when there are no clouds and the aircraft is flying at a higher altitude. - Sometimes rescue ops may take up to an hour, so it’s a real test of endurance and skill for the pilot. - In a helicopter, an autopilot could only be useful on long-haul flights with minimum obstacles on the way.

Why Planes Stopped Flying Half Full
Why Planes Stopped Flying Half Full

Airplanes may be a marvel of modern engineering, but unless you're flying first-class it isn't what most people would call glamorous. For many, the biggest problem is how crowded airliners can get. But believe it or not, there was a time when flights rarely left more than half full. How was this possible? It might be hard to believe in a world where you must book your flight months in advance, but there was a time when you could simply drive to the airport on a whim and go almost anywhere you wanted. If you were lucky, you might even get the whole row to yourself!

The solution they all came to was accessibility. - It's hard to make unlimited legroom sound bad, but all that extra space came at a price, and I mean that literally. - The average price of airfare in 1979 was about $600 in today’s money. Compare that to 2015, when the average price was only about three hundred and eighty-five dollars. - It turns out that all these extra flights were cutting into the airline's bottom line, and they were passing that markup on to you. - Two things brought an end to these halcyon days of ample knee space. The first came in the form of relaxed FAA regulations. - Free from price controls and restricted routes, costs fell as airlines struggled to undercut each other's prices. - The second significant change was a technological one. In the analog world of the 1970s, there wasn’t a whole lot companies could do to adjust prices on the fly. - Modern airlines have entire departments dedicated to writing the code that goes into determining the price of an individual seat. - Airlines have also taken to adding more seats to each plane and regularly selling more tickets than they have seats. - The side effect is that sometimes more people show up than expected, and someone ends up getting left behind. - In the year 2000, the United States was home to ten major airlines, a number that has been slowly whittled down to just four by 2017. - While the 70s may have been an excellent time for airline customers, all those extra flights weren't exactly healthy for the environment.

Why Public Toilet Seats Are Shaped Like a U
Why Public Toilet Seats Are Shaped Like a U
12 dagar sedan
We all use it every day -the John, the Throne, the Lavatory, the Potty, the Commode, the Latrine, the Privy…the Toilet! No matter what you call it, public restrooms aren’t always the most pleasant experience; the germs, unspoken etiquette…no one likes to talk about it, it’s can be a tender subject, but, Brightsider, today’s your lucky day! You're gonna find out why public toilet seats are shaped like a U (this isn’t what they’re like at home, right?), which stalls are cleaner than others, what exactly the proper Hand-Washing technique is and many other things! Other videos you might like: Close One Eye When You Go to the Toilet at Night sezone.info/view/ZkN4WG43M0pWd2M.html& Are Public Toilets As Safe As You Think? sezone.info/view/bzFMSElsaFI2em8.html& Put Vinegar Into a Toilet, and Watch What Happens sezone.info/view/NmROR0Y5UFJrQlk.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why are public toilet seats shaped like a U? 0:31 Do those toilet seat covers really make it more hygienic? 1:09 Are some stalls cleaner than others? 1:40 Is it safe to take my drink with me into the stall? 2:18 What should I do with my drink if I have to GO? 2:57 What exactly is the proper Hand-Washing technique? 3:33 What if I’m loyal to my hand sanitizer? 4:20 🙂 Good-to-know tips for public bathroom etiquette 🙃 4:55 #hygiene #etiquette #brightside SUMMARY: - The reason is for hygiene purposes, to keep that part of the toilet as far from your most sensitive areas as possible, as it could have some unwanted droplets on it. - That little space in between the U-shaped seat may still have dribbles of urine on it, and it will just soak through the cover. - The outside stalls are used less frequently, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cleaner-just because it looks clean doesn’t mean that it is. - There are over 3 million bacteria per square inch in that toilet bowl, just to give you some perspective. - It’s best to leave your drink on your desk or have a friend hold it for you. But these aren’t always an option. If you must put your drink or mug on the sink, put clean paper towels down first. - Rub the soap on top of your hands and between your fingers. Don’t forget to get under those nails! You should wash for at least twenty seconds. Rinse your hands completely and dry with a clean towel. - Make sure your hand sanitizer is at least 60% alcohol. Know that hand sanitizers don’t get rid of all types of germs. - If you’re out and you bump into someone you know in the bathroom, your first instinct might be to shake their hand or touch them with a greeting. Resist the temptation. - Keep the restroom a quiet place. Some of us have to concentrate. - Experts say that chatting at the sink while washing your hands is a no-no. They say that you should just focus on getting your hands clean and avoid eye contact. - Whenever possible, don’t pick the stall right next to somebody. Put a stall or two between you if the restroom isn’t crowded. - Say you’re standing in front of a one-person bathroom and you aren’t sure if there’s anyone inside. - It’s a little-known fact, but many public restrooms are equipped with a fan, a.k.a an exhaust fan. It will circulate the air in the bathroom, in case you aren’t able to leave it smelling fresh as a daisy.

18 House Details in the UK Foreigners Don't Understand
18 House Details in the UK Foreigners Don't Understand
12 dagar sedan
Great Britain is a country of centuries-old traditions, and some of them might seem strange to foreigners. But the Brits aren’t in a hurry to change something just because the rest of the world does it differently. Did you know, for example, that there are separate faucets for hot and cold water in Britain? And the tap with hot water has to always be installed on the left side when it’s possible to do so. By the way, you won’t find outlets in the bathroom. British safety rules demand that you shouldn’t be able to plug something in an outlet when you’re in the water. Well, that makes sense. Other videos you might like: 21 Things in the US That Puzzle Most Foreigners sezone.info/view/SzFIeFc1dmNfbFU.html& 25 Traditions Sound Strange to You But Totally Normal in Other Countries sezone.info/view/MHBlbGQyc1l1Mkk.html 10 Things That Seem Attractive in Foreign Countries sezone.info/view/N1o5UDlZN0JLdzg.html TIMESTAMPS: Double faucets 0:21 Water laws 1:09 Electricity in bathrooms 1:28 Plugs 1:59 Washing machines in the kitchen 2:21 Reverse switches 2:41 Interior doors 2:55 Carpeting 3:14 Closets 3:27 Windows 3:41 Air Conditioning 4:07 Covered-up windows 4:32 Cold inside houses 5:30 Pipes on the house front 5:52 Garbage cans 6:07 Small Yards 6:44 Mail delivery 7:10 Milk doors 7:31 Bonus 7:55 #GreatBritain #UK #brightside SUMMARY: - To avoid an outbreak of listeriosis, authorities forbade mixing the hot and cold water. - The voltage in Great Britain is higher than in North America, and in order to avoid an electric shock, there are even pull-string light switchers there. They’re totally safe, no matter how damp it is. - Power outlets have an “on” switch, which is good, since you don’t have to unplug the device after charging it; simply turn off the outlet itself. - Washing machines are tucked in the kitchen, because - you guessed it, there are no outlets in the bathroom. - Switches in Britain are reverse: you need to flip them down to turn the light on and flip them up to turn it off. - Wall-to-wall carpeting can be found anywhere in the house; sometimes in the bathroom too. If you buy or rent a house, this won’t even be mentioned in the ad, there’s not usually another option. - Windows are opened either out, up, or down, but not inside. It makes sense if you have a small room, but just think about how you’d wash the windows. - There aren’t often air conditioners in British homes, since the temperature in summer doesn’t usually get too high. - The window tax, introduced in 1696, levied a tax on property owners based on the number of windows they had. - It’s usually very cold in British homes during the cold season. Heating fees are high, and the Brits prefer to wear layers of warm clothes, rather than receive huge bills. - Another detail that strikes strangers is that water and sewer pipes aren’t underground, but attached right to the front of the house. - Garbage cans stand close to the main entrance, as if they were the owners’ pride. The true reason is far more practical though: this is done for the garbage collectors' convenience. - Some British houses on the main streets of the town are only a dozen feet wide and have a super narrow backyard. But still, they cost much more than houses on side streets. - Front doors have special slots for the mail, and letters and newspapers fall right to the floor of the entry. If there’s no slot, the mail is tucked under the front door. - Old houses also have special tiny doors for milk.

Why Ships Are Red Below the Waterline
Why Ships Are Red Below the Waterline
13 dagar sedan
When’s the last time you looked at a ship? Picture a cruise ship or container ship in the harbor. Did you happen to notice that the bottom of the hull is always painted red? It’s not like you can see that snazzy paint job under the waterline, so what gives? In early times, ships were mostly made of wood. That's why sailors had to cover their hulls (the part that’s sitting in the water) with copper paint to protect the vessel from wood-eating worms, barnacles, and seaweed. It was the copper that added a red tint to the paint. But what about now?

But the hulls are still painted red to honor and maintain the old nautical tradition! - You also might’ve noticed numbers painted vertically on the side of the hull, usually toward the bow. The red background helps those stand out more. - It doesn't matter how well you protect the hull of your ship with special paint - it’ll never help you completely avoid the harmful growth of barnacles and whatnot. - You might not realize it, but almost 95% of all the world's cargo is transported by ship. - Right at this moment, at least 20 million containers are moving across the world. - Within one year, the average container ship travels the same distance as going three-quarters of the way to the moon and back. - The largest cargo ship can carry 18,000 containers with a whopping 745 million bananas inside! - Maersk has been the biggest container ship operator in the world since 1996. If you stack up just their containers alone, it would equal 7,530 Eiffel Towers. - One-third of all ship crews in the world don't have any kind of communication with the outside world when they're out at open sea. - Cruise ships often perform rescue operations. So, don't be surprised if the one you're traveling on stops to save a few fishers in desperate need of help. - Cruise ship cabins are built separately from the ship because, otherwise, there wouldn't be enough space for their construction. - Cruise ship cabin walls are made of metal, and the main reason is fire safety. - During a one-week cruise, a large ship uses 1,800 pounds of coffee, 9,000 pounds of lettuce, 45,000 eggs, and 20,000 ice cream cones! - Although there are doctors and nurses on cruise ships, if you have a dental emergency, no-one will be able to help you out. - Cruise ships consume a lot of fuel. For example, a large vessel needs about 121,000 gallons of fuel for every day it spends at sea. - The largest cruise ships have more than 2,000 crew members. On top of that, such vessels are incredibly expensive to build: they may cost more than $1 billion.

What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?
What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?
13 dagar sedan
They say that a brisk walk a few times a week can do wonders for your body. Maybe you’ve tried to boost the cardio factor by turning your walks into runs. With some work, you’d be able to build up some serious endurance. But what if you ran for an entire day? In 2015, Camille Herron set a world record by running 50 miles in about 5 and a half hours. Well, humans were built to run from an evolutionary standpoint (think of our ancestors chasing after their food) but does it mean that excessive running is healthy?

You start to “feel the burn” in your muscles 0:21 Hour 3. You lose weight 1:08 Hour 5. Your knees are in pain 1:38 Hour 8. You “hit the wall” 2:12 Hour 10. At this point, anyone would really need to stop 2:50 Hour 12. An imbalance in your pH levels 3:26 Hour 15. Are you an experienced runner? If not, don't do that! 4:02 Hour 20. You might be crying 4:34 Hour 24. No benefits 5:10 The coolest runners ever 6:25 #running #whatif #brightside SUMMARY: - Within the first 30 minutes, you’ll start burning any “bad” fat, since your body uses this and glucose from food for additional energy. While glucose is getting absorbed by your body, you’ll really start to “feel the burn” in your muscles. - If you’re running for 3 hours, you’re probably training for a marathon. An extremely fit person could complete a marathon in 3 hours (which is about 26 miles.) - If you’re training for a marathon, running 5 hours a day is a reasonable goal! A “fitness runner” could definitely finish a marathon in 5 hours. - If you ran or worked out for 8 hours a day, you would so-to-speak “hit the wall” if you aren’t getting enough calories and protein from your diet. - Unless you’ve been an experienced marathon runner for years, running 10 hours at a time is definitely excessive. If a non-runner just took off willy-nilly, we probably wouldn’t have enough endurance or muscle mass built up-we’d be very prone to injury. - Abnormal lactic acid amounts in your body can cause an imbalance in your pH levels, which tell you how acidic your blood is. Too much acid in the blood can cause serious problems, including cardiovascular issues. - A 15 hour run can seriously damage the cardiovascular and skeletal systems. When we burn all of our energy too quickly, it can cause plaque buildup in our arteries, and something called oxidative stress; this is essentially damage to your body’s cells. - After a long race, experienced runners often feel a wide range of emotions: pure exhaustion down to the soul, tears, happiness, a break in the iron-clad willpower, or a tangled-up mix of emotions. - If you run for 24 hours, all the benefits of a normal running session-increased bone density, muscle tone, increased lung capacity and endurance, elevated mood - will likely disappear. - Keep in mind, only very experienced runners that are in optimum shape can run in extreme intervals of time like these (such as an Olympian or marathon runner).

Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why
Stop Charging Your Phone at Night, Here's Why
13 dagar sedan
It’s a basic thing - you want your phone fully charged in the morning so it’ll last through the entire day. And even with cutting-edge smartphones that can charge to max capacity in a matter of an hour, there’s no guarantee that you’ll remember to charge it in the morning while you’re in a sleepy daze. Advice to leave your phone unplugged during the night may seem risky. The worst fear here is that your phone will charge down while you sleep and won’t see the dawn of a new day to wake you up like you’re used to. But still, you can’t go against the word of science. Leaving your smartphone on a charger is bad for it. Other videos you might like: 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone sezone.info/view/MFotcExvdnZxa2c.html& Stop Using Your Phone Sitting on the Toilet sezone.info/view/SF96YkdiNXlCdEk.html& 10+ Reasons Your Phone Battery Dies So Fast sezone.info/view/eHk2enlQN1pLMlE.html TIMESTAMPS: Automatic switches don't solve the problem 1:20 How to choose high-quality chargers and cables 2:12 Is heat really bad for batteries? 3:32 Fully depleting the charge 4:07 A lazy battery effect 4:42 Charging a phone with a sound 6:13 Sodium instead of lithium? 6:33 How about gold batteries? 7:15 #phonebattery #charging #brightside SUMMARY: - Even though lithium-based batteries are rechargeable by nature, and made with this process in mind, they’re highly vulnerable to constant interactions with high voltage electricity, like in the outlets of your house. - There are automatic switches on your phone that’ll stop the charging process the very moment it reaches 100%. But when your phone naturally goes down to 99%, the charging will start all over again. - Good, high-quality chargers have special chips in them that prevent overcharging. So it’s advisable not to skimp on chargers - this way you won’t spend much more money on a new battery or entire smartphone too soon. - Overall, it’s always advisable to use good quality tech when it comes to something as expensive as smartphones these days. - Heat is bad for batteries. That’s why it’s so harmful to your phone if you leave it in a closed car in the middle of summer. - You’ve probably heard something about fully depleting the charge of your smartphone and then charging it to the maximum capacity. This is fair for devices from the past decade. - Any modern lithium-ion battery won’t get lazy like a cadmium based one, so you don’t have to worry about that. - Scientists and engineers promise that soon, we’ll have another kind of lithium-based battery that’ll be able to charge in a matter of minutes and last for more than one day. - One of their new ideas is to make battery chargers that can produce energy from a Wi-Fi signal. - And how about charging a phone with a sound? Using piezoelectric principals, tiny nanogenerators will be able to transform the surrounding sound to electric power. - - Scientists from Japan are in the middle of a decades-long study that will allow replacing lithium ion batteries with sodium. - Another idea is to use literal sand in batteries. Not quite literal though, as this battery will use silicon - the main component of the sand. - But for now, the best course of action is to use good quality charging equipment, keep your smartphone out of the heat, and most importantly, keep the charge in it between 30% and 90%.

Okay, here’s your task and half an hour of time. - Tired of playing? You can pause the game, drink tea, or sleep. When problems pile up on you for real, a pause will only aggravate the situation. - Win a fight with the most dangerous villain of the 7 kingdoms. In life: "Hmm, I’d better go around this dark lane." - In a game with an interesting plot, an event happened that you did not expect. You admire this and thank the developers for the cool story. In life, just a thought of something going wrong annoys you. - Take the powder from the horn of the minotaur, the scales of the mermaid, the feather of the sphinx and the fang of a vampire. Mix it all in one pile and get a potion that makes you invisible. - You are immediately born into excellent physical shape and a beautiful body. In life, you spend years of training in the gym so that six-pack appears on your tummy. - In a video game, you go through the dungeons, jump over cliffs with lava, fight monsters, defeat the dragon and only then get the princess. - You can quickly go through the game, but life goes on. And it is much more interesting!

9 Secrets of the Statue of Liberty Most Americans Don't Know

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most (if not THE most) famous monuments in the world. Anyone visiting New York City can see her, but not everyone knows that Lady Liberty has her own secrets. One of them is - she might not even be a lady at all! Or do you know, for example, that number seven meant a lot for the Statue's creators? It's easy to notice the Statue has seven spikes on its crown, symbolizing universal liberty across the seven oceans and continents. But there are less obvious references to the number seven. Btw, you can see this monument not in NYC only!

SUMMARY: - It's really hard to picture it, but the Statue actually arrived from France on June 17, 1885, in over 300 copper pieces. The precious cargo was traveling in 214 crates on the French ship, Isère. - Then, American newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer stepped in. Even though 80% of the donations were small ones from middle-class citizens, Pulitzer managed to collect the necessary amount from over 120,000 donors. - The Statue of Liberty is made of copper, so it was originally about the same color as a penny. According to the New York Historical Society, it turned completely green because of oxidation by 1920. - The statue was originaly supposed to serve as a lighthouse for ships sailing into New York Harbor. And, two years after it arrived in the US, it actually became one. - There are 16 leaves around the torch, and the monument itself is 151 feet tall. The sum of both those digits is seven as well. Clearly, that number meant a lot for the Statue's creators. - Famous engineer Alexander Gustave Eiffel helped design the steel internal framework to keep the statue stable. It's strong enough to withstand around 600 bolts of lightning a year. - Most people are positive it's a representation of the Roman goddess of freedom, Libertas. The widely accepted story is that Bartholdi modeled her face after his mother. - Author and journalist, Elizabeth Mitchell, however, claims that the sculptor actually used his brother's face as a model! - Another theory was presented by French writer Nathalie Salmon, who claims Lady Liberty was modeled after her ancestor Sarah Salmon. - You can find a smaller Statue of Liberty, which was the original model for its big sister, in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. It's been there since 1906, after Bartholdi gave it to the Luxembourg museum for the World’s Fair of 1900.

Nice cars, private jets, designer clothes, your own personal No-Fly Zone around your sprawling $7-million mansion… Ok, that might not be the case for all famous people, but it is for Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi! His eco-friendly home is in Gava, a town that’s about 6 miles from Barcelona’s main airport El Prat. And get this: Messi’s estate is preventing the airport from expanding! Add to that the whole “planes are absolutely forbidden from flying over it” thing, and it seems like the soccer superstar is causing a lot of inconveniences!

His home happens to be within the perimeter, and one of those guidelines includes noise levels. - The airspace is restricted because the sheer volume of aircraft would interfere with the natural wildlife in the area. - “No-Fly Zones” help preserve environmentally protected areas. They’re also usually over historical heritage sites with high traffic, regions with known conflict, and sometimes other famous or important people’s houses too. - Located in Berkshire, England, Windsor Castle was once a fort built during the 11th century by William the Conqueror. It’s right up there with Buckingham Palace as far as having the status of a national treasure. - Machu Picchu is one of the most famous historical sanctuaries on this planet. As such, Peruvian authorities can’t risk disturbing the World Heritage Site or the wildlife living around it. - For Tibet, the flight restriction is all about passenger safety. The region isn’t just home to the tallest mountain in the world, the mighty Everest, it’s also covered in peaks! - Andorra is the largest country in the world that doesn’t have an airport. It is, however, home to three heliports. - Monaco also has a heliport instead of an airport. If you want to fly in by chopper, you’ll be landing at the Monaco Heliport in Fontvieille. - Keeping with its European counterparts, people living in Vatican City would need to go to Rome for their flight. Not a major inconvenience - Vatican City is located within Rome, after all! - As the largest country in the world, it might come as no surprise that all territory of Russia is sprinkled with loads of airports - 1,218 of them to be precise. - Of the country’s 1,714 air hubs, Mexico City International Airport was the busiest in 2018. They helped 47 million travelers get to and from their destination! - Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking country in South America whose territory is mostly made up of the Amazon Rainforest hosts 4,093 airports. - The United States has 14,712 airports!

What If Everyone on Earth Sneezed at the Same Time
What If Everyone on Earth Sneezed at the Same Time
15 dagar sedan
Have you ever thought what would happen if everyone in the world (all 7.5 billion of us!) sneezed at the exact same time? Worst case scenario, there may be some accidents on the road. After all, your eyes automatically close whenever you sneeze. Well, this worldwide “Achoo” would be pretty loud too, especially for those who happen to be at a stadium. Speaking of stadiums, you’d likely see a cloud form since one sneeze can contain up to 40,000 droplets of mucus! And all those germs, ick! Or if you’re watching TV when it happens. The news anchor would be stopped mid-sentence. This event would go down in history! People will ask each other, “Where were you on the day the whole world sneezed?” Other videos you might like: 13 Habits We Mistakenly Considered Harmless sezone.info/view/T0Z6cncyWV94Q0E.html& 8 Rare Features Some Unique People Have sezone.info/view/V2dtOElRRXM4RU0.html& 20 Interesting Facts You're Too Lazy to Google sezone.info/view/VFpxRm9rWXlsdXc.html& TIMESTAMPS: Sternutation 2:28 Why sneezing is good for you 2:40 Does your heart really stop when you sneeze? 3:04 How does milk come out of your nose in a sneeze? 3:14 Why do we cover up when we sneeze? 3:31 Is it ok if I hold it in? 3:58 Why do we sneeze? 4:09 Why do some people sneeze really loud, but others are quiet? 4:36 Which type of sneezer are you ❓ 5:04 Weirdest things that make people sneeze 😮 6:55 #sneezing #funfacts #brightside SUMMARY: - Sternutation is the scientific word for sneezing. - Ever had problems with your computer only to realize restarting fixed everything? That’s what a sneeze does for your nasal cavity - it resets it! - While the rhythm of your heart certainly changes when you let out a big one, your heart doesn’t actually stop beating. - The louder the sneeze, the faster the air moves, sometimes up to 100 mph! It can also project mucus up to 5 feet away from your body! - Holding in a sneeze can damage blood vessels in your eyes and brain. - Sneezing is the brain’s way of ordering dust, dander, and pollen out of your nose. - A “photic” sneeze reflex happens when we walk outside and take a good look at our closest star or the light it projects. - Happiness, sadness, and anger are all emotions that affect our whole body, sneezing included! - Here’s a big term: gustatory rhinitis. That’s a fancy way of saying an inflammation of the glands in your nose caused by something you eat or smell. - Ready for another big term? Peripheral vasoconstriction! It sounds like some magical spell, (expectorate mucusium!) but it basically means most of the heat in your body transfers to your core when it’s cold. - If you find yourself sneezing in the shower, the fragrance in your shampoo, conditioner, or body wash may be the cause. - Dark chocolate triggers the same sneeze in about one quarter of the population. - We all have a TRPA1 receptor on our tongue. When we drink a bubbly beverage, the carbon dioxide activates that receptor. When many receptors are switched on at once, our body produces more saliva and lets out a sneeze or sometimes a cough.

95 Floors in 43 Seconds in the Fastest Elevator
95 Floors in 43 Seconds in the Fastest Elevator
16 dagar sedan
n 1857, back when it was rare to come across a building that was more than 7 stories high, the Otis Elevator Company rocked the world by installing the first-ever commercial passenger elevator at 488 Broadway in New York City. It moved at an unimaginable speed for its time -40 feet per minute! Doesn’t sound like much, but remember - this was way before cars came around! A lot has changed since then. Life’s getting faster, buildings are getting taller, and you can no longer impress anyone with an elevator that travels 6 times slower than the average person walks! So, companies designing and constructing skyscrapers must think over their vertical transportation systems.

It was opened and recorded in the Guinness World Records in September 2019. It sky-rockets from the ground to the 95th floor in just 43 seconds! - Think you could handle riding in an elevator moving almost highway speeds at 47 miles per hour? - Most standard elevators go up to a maximum of about 20 mph. - There are special rollers in four corners of the cabin to absorb unpleasant vibrations. The brakes are made of heat-resistant materials that’ll ensure it stops smoothly even in an emergency. - Most skyscrapers have an advanced elevator system. It’s not just one straight shot from bottom to top but a complex network with stops and transfers, sort of like the subway! - The Gateway Arch. The futuristic elevator pods move up and down the “legs” of this 630-foot stainless steel construction that was designed by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen. - The Bailong Elevator. The name of this elevator that reaches a height of 1,070 feet on the side of a cliff translates as the Hundred Dragons Elevator. It was opened in 2002, and you can spot fantastic views through its glass doors. - AquaDom. Would you like to travel between floors in the middle of an 82-foot-tall cylindrical aquarium full of over 260,000 gallons of water and 1,500 fish? - The Falkirk Wheel is the only rotating boat elevator in the world, lifting vessels 79 feet from one canal into another. - “Elevador Lacerda”. This one isn't just an elevator but a legit means of transportation connecting the “Lower” city to the “Upper” one. It transports over 30,000 people a day, traveling to a height of 236 feet in 38 seconds. - SkyView, Ericsson Globe. At 279 feet tall and 361 feet in diameter, Ericsson Globe is the largest spherical building in the world. You can see a concert or sports game inside (probably hockey!), and take a ride in the glass elevators on the outside.

What If You Played Video Games for 1 Day Non-Stop
What If You Played Video Games for 1 Day Non-Stop

Hey guys! Are any of you gamers? I'm not, but there was a time when I could sit all night long, playing some new and awesome game. And it’s then I wondered completely out of the blue: what would happen if I played for 24 hours straight? You think I didn’t check it? Fat chance! So, I planned my game day for Saturday so that I’d have no work to do, could sleep until well rested for the event, and would have another day to recover after it. I bought a dozen Red Bulls (big ones, not those tiny little cans) and made sure I had enough coffee at home to keep me going. Then I fixed my armchair so that it was a bit less comfy than I’m used to - I believed it would help me not fall asleep too...

I launched it and off I went into the world of might and magic. - The first three hours flew by like one minute. I didn’t feel hungry or thirsty, or tired, for that matter, just nothing. - After seven hours I remembered that I had legs. Nature called, and I tried to stand up, but almost failed. - Anyway, after no more than 5 minutes I returned to my game. Three more hours passed, I had another couple of buns and my first energy drink of the evening. - Two more hours in, and I popped open another Red Bull. Not that I had to energize myself, but I just needed a distraction. - I don’t really know what was happening to me after all those hours of playing, but once again, care I did not. All that mattered was that I was going to collect that legendary set of armor whatever it took. - Three more hours and two more cans of energy drink passed. I did finish the chapter just like I wanted and, having lots of time ahead of me, went on to the next one. - My vision was just a tiny bit blurry because my eyes were tired from all that staring into the screen, and my thoughts were increasingly chaotic, but otherwise I felt absolutely fine. - When the last minute of my 24-hour marathon ended, I saw that, ironically, I couldn’t just save and quit in the area I was at the time. - I quit the game after another four hours. I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I closed the game. I stood up and rubbed my eyes, and then I started stretching as if my life depended on it.

From the Coldest to the Maximum Possible Temperature on Earth
17 dagar sedan
Today’s journey is especially dangerous…and unusual. I wanna test my capsule by going all the way from the coldest temperature on our planet to the absolute hottest! Usually, all atoms vibrate, move around, interact, and do their daily work of making up you, me, and everything else in the universe. They create energy and heat from all that bouncing around. Absolute zero is the temperature at which atoms stop moving…completely! So, naturally, things get really cold - 0°Kelvin. That’s -459.67°F!

They can survive under layers of solid ice, in stone walls, and even in outer space! - Now that we’ve passed -458°, helium can maintain its gaseous state (a.k.a. it melts into a liquid at that temperature). - -361°F - gonna need to be extremely careful now because I'm moving through the temperature when oxygen melts into a liquid! - Now my equipment is showing -128°F. Ah, I see, it's the world record for the coldest air temperature recorded at ground level! - The coldest habitable place on our planet is the village of Oymyakon in Russia! On January 26, 1926, the temperature dropped to a staggering -96°F! - Going further, and I see the temperature is 55.4°F. It's a shocking number because it refers to the lowest human body temperature ever recorded. - My next stop is even hotter than that, at 115°F. That's the highest human body temperature ever recorded. - Moving out of the “human body range” I've arrived at the 159.3°F mark, which is the highest surface temperature ever recorded on Earth. - Just a couple of seconds later, and my capsule is traveling through a temperature of 257°F. That's when any Intel CPU processor automatically shuts down. - The brake pads on a Formula 1 racecar can reach a truly terrifying temperature of 1,380°F! - The next temperature stop is 1,900°F, and it measures the heat of a volcanic eruption. Well, the lava spewing out of it, to be precise. - The hottest temperature on Earth was actually human-made! It was created in 2012 by scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. Inside the collider, lead ions were smashed into each other going 99% of the speed of light. - The resulting plasma that formed had an absolutely mind-blowing temperature of 9.9 trillion °F! That's 250,000 times hotter than the center of the Sun!

Why Some People Chase Storms And Why It's Popular
Why Some People Chase Storms And Why It's Popular
17 dagar sedan
The thrill of a hunt, a challenge from nature itself, the opportunity to prove yourself, and a lot of adrenaline - storm chasing has it all, and so much more. I’m driving as fast as the wind; the city limit sign fading far behind me. Lightning is blinding me every couple of seconds and the windshield of my car is flooding from rain. This isn’t my first rodeo, mind you, but I’ve gotten used to the fact that getting nervous is just a part of my job. Debris, tree branches, and dirt covering the road are all signs of impending danger; and signs that my hunt will go well.

But it’s also become my job as a nature photographer. - Most of the time, the storm is thousands of miles away, and you need to plan every detail of an upcoming trip ahead of time. - I wasn’t a cool kid or a daredevil when I was young; I was a nerd; and probably the most out-of-this-world kind of nerd. - Storms were just a dream for me; I knew I had to study first. But getting into the storm chasing club was inevitable at some point. - The first step I took was becoming a storm spotter. These are volunteers, from all walks of life, hired and educated to help local weather stations to identify storms. - Checking weather reports every hour, searching for places where cold air might meet warm air - looking for the kinds of situations from which storms and tornados are naturally born. - Never go on a storm chasing trip alone - that’s the rule. One of you will search for the best place to intercept a tornado, and the other one should focus solely on driving. - If you want to play tag with a tornado, you need a monster rig. This vehicle should be your moving castle, and be ready to take a good beating too. - Unfortunately, storm chasing isn’t limited to professionals, and that’s a troubling thing. That means there’s a lot of untrained storm chasers that will not only put themselves at risk, but others as well. - Some individuals will do anything to get to the storm first. This is one reason why you never go storm chasing if you aren’t qualified for it. - I remember the time I caught one of the best storms I’ve ever seen. The 1000-mile drive was worth it. - I had to make a split-second decision about when to turn towards the storm. Turn too early and I’d get in the way of the tornado, which could lead to the worst turn of events. - My decision was decent, but soon to be proved half baked, since I got into an unforeseen traffic jam. - I thought all was lost when suddenly I noticed something extraordinary just 50 yards to my side. The wind started to spin near the ground. - My first reaction was pure excitement, but it abruptly turned into panic when I figured out where all the other chasers were hiding. - They were right in the path of the tornado, and completely oblivious. - All we could do was block the ways to the overpass with the two cars and tell the other chasers to get down on the ground. - I wasn’t able to catch a single photo, but I helped other people survive that day.

Why Cruise Ships Are So Slow
Why Cruise Ships Are So Slow
18 dagar sedan
Ships come in all shapes and sizes. From motorized dinghies to yachts; from glorious looking white cruise ships to bulky container ships and tankers. But they all share one quality: their engines seem excessively powerful, yet they still can’t seem to output the speed you would’ve expected from this kind of power. The reality is the exact opposite of the expectations: a big liner can cross the Atlantic Ocean in a week, but a cargo ship would have to spend more than two weeks to do the same thing. For a plane to go from an airport in Western Europe to New York, for example, it would take only 8 hours. So why do we even use ships if planes are so much faster?

The same goes for the number of passengers - some ships can carry more than 5,000 passengers in one go! - So in general, ships are going slow just because they don’t need to go faster; their aim is set somewhere else completely. They sacrifice speed for better carrying capacity. - The engines of big ships are huge powerhouses taking up entire rooms and swallowing tons of fuel each day like it’s a snack. - When a plane flies, it needs to maintain enough speed to stay up in the air, and it needs to avoid clouds when possible. - Unfortunately, ships have no choice but to deal with the dense environment that often almost fully covers the ship’s hull. - Even something as fast as a bullet would slow down and finally stop after just 100ft through the water. This is why every ship needs more power to move at all. - A large ship is naturally submerged in the water with a part of its hull up to the waterline. If the ship is loaded with cargo, it’ll be submerged deeper than that. - All modern-day ships have a so-called bulbous bow - the thing that’s submerged in the water right under the nose of the ship. - This is why modern ships don’t produce waves around them anymore, and their speed is no longer so heavily affected by them. - WP-18 Special Forces Interceptor is a boat you’d expect to see in a sci-fi movie. But it’s real, and it’s literally cutting edge design is specially developed to cut through waves at the extremely high speed of 65 knots, or 74 mph. - A rush for top speeds was, and always will be, in people’s minds no matter what. This gave birth to another incredible vessel - The Mystic Powerboats C5000. - The max speed achieved in this boat is mind-blowing 250 mph. - If you want to go even faster, I have bad news for you: the sea won’t let you, because it won’t be calm enough. - So it seems like about 300 mph is the natural speed limit of the sea itself.

Why Steve Jobs Didn't Use Social Media at All
Why Steve Jobs Didn't Use Social Media at All
18 dagar sedan
Half the world spends two to six hours a day on social media, and those numbers keep going up. A lot of the credit goes to Steve Jobs, the inventor of the iPhone. But when you picture Steve, make sure it’s with his head up, addressing a crowd, looking into someone’s eyes, or exploring the world, not bent over the little screen so many of us hold in our hands. Steve Jobs was the least likely in any crowd to be gazing at social media! He didn’t use Facebook, and he didn’t use Twitter. Other videos you might like: Why Steve Jobs Didn't Have a License Plate sezone.info/view/YktzRExXOWFrUG8.html& I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed sezone.info/view/dFp3OHRuei11djg.html 12 Signs of High Intelligence You Probably Have sezone.info/view/T05qVkllSjBIWmc.html TIMESTAMPS: “Collecting the dots”. What is it? 0:37 What Steve Jobs did in сollege 1:43 Always do your research 4:47 Third-Party trackers 5:53 Be careful with the jokes 7:12 #SteveJob #socialmedia #brightside Preview photo credit: Apple director Steve Jobs shows iPhone: By Kremlin.ru, CC BY 4.0 creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0, commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=11161161 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - Like most inventors, Steve was always looking for the next idea, and he believed there was no substitute for a good old face to face exchange. - And while Steve Jobs did invent the iPhone, he didn’t do it alone! He shared that credit with more than ten other inventors! - Another reason Steve didn’t spend time on social media was that so many of his good ideas come from the random inspiration he encountered in the “real” world. - When discussing creativity, Steve talked a lot about “connecting the dots,” but it might be more accurate to say that Steve believed that first you had to “collect” the dots. - You’ve probably heard that Steve Jobs dropped out of college, and that’s true, but it’s also a little misleading. Not only did Steve stick around campus, he kept taking classes! - You see, once Steve no longer had to worry about fulfilling “requirements” for a major, he was free to observe any class that interested him. - Steve “collected the dot” and “dropped in” to a calligraphy class! Years later, when he was designing the first apple computers, Steve used the things he learned in Calligraphy class to design the first suite of computer fonts. - So if you, unlike Steve Jobs, are constantly attached to your screen, always do your research. That’s what third party trackers are doing…their research on you! - A good tip for browsing the web is the classic “If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.” - Never give out personal information like your social security number or mother’s maiden name. - Never post anything on line that you don’t want to have “Track” you forever. Be especially careful with the jokes. - In April of 2017, officials at Harvard discovered a Facebook group where accepted students made some jokes in bad taste. Even though the students insisted that it was all in fun, and many of the jokes were about themselves, Harvard revoked the admission from ten students. - This doesn’t mean you have to give up social media. It’s fun, informative, and lots of jobs and schoolwork require it. Just practice safe behavior.

Why Planes Don't Fly in Extreme Heat
Why Planes Don't Fly in Extreme Heat
18 dagar sedan
Flight cancellation might come as a shocker when you’re sitting in the departure lounge looking at the gorgeous bright sunny weather outside. If there’s not a raincloud or snowstorm in sight, then what gives? Oh yeah, planes can’t fly in extreme heat! In the summer of 2017, 50 flights were canceled at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The reason: temperatures were a brain-melting 120°F! In the age of super-advanced technology, it seems weird that air travel can be interrupted by an unusually hot day. The reason is actually in the nature of flight itself! Other videos you might like: Why Planes Don't Fly Straight sezone.info/view/V2NXYlVJUU14WEU.html& Why Planes Don't Fly Over the Pacific Ocean sezone.info/view/MDBBVDVoX3NPUU0.html& Why Airplanes Are White sezone.info/view/S2NoUmRpVHpEejA.html& TIMESTAMPS: What makes planes fly 1:33 So can’t why planes fly in extreme heat? 3:07 Problems that extremely hot weather causes 4:17 What if a plane has to take off no matter what 4:50 What about the cold? 6:00 Can it be too windy to fly? 6:53 The riskiest situation that can happen in wet weather 8:05 #planes #aviation #brightside SUMMARY: - Before every departure, pilots get detailed information on the air temperature, humidity, elevation, runway length, and other important things. - If there’s no lift, a plane won’t be able to take off and stay up in the air. It all has to do with wings and how they’re designed to redirect the movement of air. - Since the air particles are resisting that change, the pressure on the underside of the wing is higher. Over the top of the wing, the pressure remains low. - The atmosphere gets thinner the higher up you go. Here “thinner” simply means that the air molecules are further apart from each other. - Hot weather has the same effect on air as higher altitudes do. That is, the higher the temperature, the less dense the air is. - For some planes, mostly smaller ones, it gets to the point where it not only has to be reduced, but the flight must be rescheduled because it’d be too dangerous for it to even try to take off. - Aircraft components like onboard electronics overheat, seals can get too soft or melt, brake temperatures increase during landings, there can be cabin cooling issues - a lot of things can break down in crazy hot temperatures. - Leaving a few passengers on the ground is one of the possible solutions when the plane just has to take off no matter how hot it is outside. - Is there such a thing as too cold to fly? Well, if anything, aircraft prefer when it’s chilly. After all, they’re designed to cruise at 35,000 feet, and such altitudes are known for their teeth-chattering temperatures of around -60°F. - A plane is unlikely to start wigging out just because it’s going through some turbulence. Aviation engineers and manufacturers test their aircraft and specify limits for the ground-, air-, and cross speeds. - Heavy rain is mostly a problem when it comes to landing. Runways are designed in such a way so that water doesn’t remain standing on them. - However, if that happens, pilots have to adjust landing speed and distance depending on how much water is on the ground. Hydroplaning is the riskiest situation that can happen in wet weather.

Why Asians Always Wear Masks
Why Asians Always Wear Masks
19 dagar sedan
If you’ve ever been to any East Asian countries or seen them in pictures or TV shows, you probably noticed hundreds of people wearing surgical masks. They wear them in public transport, cafes, in the street, and in the office. In Japan, Korea, China, and Vietnam, medical face masks have long ago become part of everyday life. Even babies wear them all the time. It looks like the most obvious reason would be to not catch a cold. Well, technically, it all started with that. Wearing a mask gives minimal protection from germs, though it’s the opinion of some that viruses have no difficulty getting through them. But there are other reasons. Other videos you might like: Scientists Finally Explain Why Asians Look So Cute sezone.info/view/Q09rdnE3V0t5OVE.html& Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science sezone.info/view/anhzbllzQTU0OVk.html& 12 Habits That Help Chinese Women Stay Young sezone.info/view/djg1WmJ0U0tMMGc.html& TIMESTAMPS: It's a social courtesy 😷 0:49 If you ride a scooter, wear a mask! 1:33 Masks hide a person’s emotions 😶 3:01 Masks that help with shedding weight 3:35 Other interesting facts about Asia: - Asian population 3:59 - Time zones of China 4:35 - The Vietnamese New year is a birthday for everyone 🎉 4:53 - The thinnest nation 5:36 - Men grow long fingernails 6:34 - Taking a nap during the workday 😴 6:47 - Hong Kong skyscrapers have holes 7:30 #Asia #Japan #brightside SUMMARY: - When you’re sick, you’re constantly leaving a trail of germs that stay behind wherever you go: on seats in public transport, doors, and hand-rails. That’s why wearing a mask is a social courtesy. - Another reason is air pollution. If you ride a scooter, and there are millions of them in Vietnam and China, you’ll want a mask. - Masks are also effective against allergies. The end of February is the beginning of allergy season for people in Japan. - In those Asian countries where winters can be cold and frosty, masks can also help to protect the face. - Asians wear masks so often that they’ve long ago become part of their wardrobe. Young people try to pick out a mask color and shape to match their outfit. - The Asian masks market is thriving, they spend $230,000,000 on masks yearly in Japan alone. - Asia is the biggest continent in square miles and population. It’s bigger than the entire surface of the moon by 2.9 million square miles. - Though China is in 5 time zones, there’s officially only one that they use. - The Vietnamese New year, Tet, is a birthday for everyone. It starts on the first day of the Moon calendar, which is at the end of winter, and is celebrated for several days. - The Thai New Year is celebrated from April 13 till April 15, and is the oldest festival that marks the change of seasons. - The Japanese are the thinnest nation among the largest economies. And this is regulated by law! Japanese laws demand that men’s waist shouldn’t be wider than 33.5 inches. Women’s waists shouldn’t be wider than 35 inches. - In Vietnam, men grow long fingernails. It’s considered a high-class mark, since only people who don’t do any hard work can manage this. - “Inemuri” is the Japanese practice of taking a nap during the workday. If you go to sleep in the office, nobody will judge or fire you. - The famous Japanese dish, “sushi” originated from South Asia and is made from 2 main ingredients of Eastern cuisine - rice and fish.

The Great Pyramid of Giza Mystery Finally Solved
The Great Pyramid of Giza Mystery Finally Solved
19 dagar sedan
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the world’s famous seven wonders. It’s a real miracle that more than 4,000 years after it saw the light of day, it still stands in the sands of Egypt. But did you know that it looked completely different in those days? The Great Pyramid was conceived as a tomb for Khufu whom you may probably know as Cheops. It remained the tallest structure created by human hand in the whole world for more than 3,800 years! Btw, it’s hard to believe, but in ancient times the crypt was mesmerizingly white... 💥 And guys, you probably know that Ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest esteem. So we hid one at the beginning of the video! Try to spot it! 😽 Other videos you might like: True Pyramids Purpose Has Been Finally Discovered sezone.info/view/WGs0aUxvR3ByN0E.html The Great Pyramid Mystery Has Finally Been Solved sezone.info/view/c09OTFdIdVlvN3c.html& A Scary Island That Has Been Keeping a Secret for 80 Years sezone.info/view/eTVLdXpJMEdlWm8.html& TIMESTAMPS: Necropolis of ancient pharaohs 0:20 Btw, originally the Great Pyramid looked VERY differently 1:49 But what could have happened to it? 4:03 The mystery of the Great pyramid 6:19 What about the workforce? 8:20 Preview photo credit: Egyptian views; The pyramids of Gizeh.

The exterior covering that you can see these days was built up from dark limestone. - These long rows of craggy slabs that resemble stepped pyramids rather than the usual ones were actually the inner coating or the core. - The pyramid was lined with sparkling white limestone. That’s what initially formed the outer layer of the pyramid. - In 1303 CE a major earthquake hit Crete. Cairo was affected as well, and the Great Pyramid met a similar fate. - For hundreds of years, the ancient monument was wearing away in the wind and the sun. In the 19th century, the remaining pieces of limestone that once covered it were seized once again. - Many adventurers who explored the site later stumbled upon the big stacks of strange debris at the foot of the pyramid. - One of the mysteries of the Great pyramid was the way the precious materials got to Giza in the first place. - The fine white stones that were really valued came from far away. They were extracted at Tura which was located on the opposite bank of the Nile, about 8 miles from the necropolis. - It’s likely the workers used to put the stones on the wooden sleds to move them closer to the construction site. - The people who worked on the pyramid’s construction were, despite the popular belief, skilled and well-paid employees.

10+ Best Exercises to Get Rid of Chest Fat
10+ Best Exercises to Get Rid of Chest Fat
20 dagar sedan
So, your favorite shirt feels a bit tight. Maybe you haven't been very active. Or maybe you’ve had a few hearty, late-night snacks recently. Whatever the reason, now you have to deal with extra fat on your chest. Face it, it’s time to hit the gym and try out these chests exercises! The easiest exercise that you can perform at home is push-ups. They target not only your chest muscles, or pecs, but also triceps and shoulders. And they’ll firm up your chest area. But there are many types of push-ups. You can choose the best ones depending on your overall physical shape and endurance, or just alternate them for each workout. But push-ups aren’t the only way to rid yourself of chest fat. There are some other great gym exercises to speed up fat loss and give you a toned upper body.

Get in a rigid plank position on your toes, with your arms fully extended and your feet no more than 12 inches apart. Now bend your elbows, breathing in, and lower your chest to just a bit below your bent elbows. Breathe out, pushing back up to the initial position. - #2. Place your hands farther out to each side, wider than shoulder width. The bigger the distance between your hands, the more grueling and effective this exercise will be. - #3. To perform it, get in a standard push-up position and tuck your elbows in about 45 degrees to get your body into an arrow shape. Now continue by doing standard push-ups. - #4. From the push-up position, start lowering your chest. After your chest gets slightly below your bent elbows, push upward with enough force for your hands to leave the floor and clap them below your chest. - #5. From a standard push-up position, lower your body and then explode up in the air to tap your chest, placing your hands in an X shape. After that, quickly put your hands on the floor to lower down into the next push-up. - #6. Get down in a standard push-up position, but place one hand higher than the other and a bit wider than shoulder-width. Start lowering your torso as close to the ground as you can. Extend your arms to push upward and reverse your hand position for the next push-up. - #7. The higher the surface, the more strenuous the exercise will be. Now get in a standard push-up position but, place your feet on the elevation you’ve chosen. Keep your elbows at 45° and continue, just like with regular push-ups. - Doing a workout that consists of all these exercises, plus any type of push-ups 3 times a week will make a noticeable difference. However, keep in mind that you can’t just get rid of the fat in your chest without dropping fat from the rest of your body. - To blast fat throughout your body faster and boost your metabolism, you should include cardio training as well, such as jumping rope, running at a moderate pace, using a stair-stepper machine, or an elliptical trainer. - Sometimes an enlarged chest on a man has nothing to do with not being active or poor diet choices. And what you believe to be fat might turn out to be an excessive amount of breast tissue. This could be a sign of a hormonal imbalance, when a man’s body produces too much estrogen.

Does Anyone Own the Moon?
Does Anyone Own the Moon?
20 dagar sedan
Even if you never thought to ask who owns the Moon, you can’t deny it’s an interesting question. Not counting international waters, there aren’t many places on Earth that don’t belong to somebody. It just makes sense that someone would own the Moon too, right? So, who’s the rightful owner of the lunar landscape? It turns out people have been claiming the Moon long before anyone set foot on it. One such claim dates all the way back to 1756, when a man by the name of Aul Juergens received our Moon as a gift from the Prussian King, Frederick the Great. But are there any more recent claims to Lunar domination?

Also among his customers are celebrities such as Barbara Walters, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Nicole Kidman. - When China announced its intentions to one day establish a colony of their own on the Lunar surface, Dennis Hope was none too happy. - Governments cannot, under any circumstances, claim land in space. - Something only belongs to you when the laws of the country you live in define it as yours. - What that means for Dennis Hope and his customers, is that the only way their claims could ever be considered valid was if his Galactic Government was recognized as its own nation.

What If You Fly for 1 Year Non-Stop
What If You Fly for 1 Year Non-Stop

What if a millionaire offers to pay for all your traveling aspirations? Only one condition: first, you have to fly continuously for a year, non-stop. Clouds after clouds after clouds. Would you say yes? If you accepted, what would it be like? Jet lag would probably the first thing that comes to mind since this is the most familiar side effect after a long flight. If 6-8 hours make your head feel the weight of the world, then can you imagine what 365 days up in the air would do? Well, honestly, this is the very least of your worries, considering everything else flying does to your body.

This contradiction will be the reason for your stomach ache. - The pressure is still the one to blame for this one. As you go higher in the air, the gas inside you expands, causing the unexpected ache that you’re feeling. It’ll help you a lot if you don’t try to hold the gas inside you though since that only makes you feel worse and more bloated. - Airplanes were designed to be able to handle the pressure. But due to being above the horizon, your blood will absorb less oxygen than usual. - They’re actually doing it for your own good! It’s been suggested that a healthy environment would have about 50 to 60 percent water vapor present in the air. Sadly, inside an airplane cabin, it can dip as low as 10 percent, which makes it drier than the desert. - The dryness of the air up there will not only affect your hydration, but also mess with your sense of smell. And guess what: being able to smell food is essential for your brain to also recognize how it tastes. - The Journal of Environmental Health Research also concluded that the risk of catching colds is a hundred times higher when you’re on an airplane. - Some studies have shown that spending 56 minutes at such an altitude is equal to spending 20 minutes tanning.

How Braces Work (And Why So Slow)
How Braces Work (And Why So Slow)
20 dagar sedan
Who doesn’t want a nice brilliant smile? Getting braces can fix bigger problems that could affect you later in life too, like jaw alignment. In short, what braces do is apply pressure to the teeth to encourage them to move into the correct position inside the mouth. Each tooth has a name, and charts of the correct position of each tooth are found all over the dentist’s and orthodontist’s office. Most of us have a slight or significant underbite or overbite. This is due to jaw misalignment, and braces will fix that! But how does all that metal in your mouth really work? And why might someone need braces?

If you sucked your thumb or pacifier a lot as a baby, this can affect how your baby teeth grow in. - An expander will stretch the bone and cartilage of the hard palate before it stops growing. It prevents teeth from crowding, and preps the mouth to have room for your braces. - Most people will feel the pressure on the back molars and will feel some discomfort in their teeth, perhaps behind their nose and eyes, or in their temples. But this tenderness will go away eventually. - Braces may look simple, but they’re actually made up of a few different parts that all work together: bonding material, the bracket, arch wire, ligature elastics, spacers, and orthodontic bands. - That wire that connects your brackets plays a key role in moving your teeth; wire doesn’t generally like to bend, but heat from your mouth makes the wire more flexible. - Your teeth are bones, and you’re only seeing the tips of them - the rest of them are anchored in your gums, which are soft to allow movement. - Besides a straight smile and proper jaw alignment, braces have another benefit. They make your teeth stronger! - Alrighty, it’s now two years later, so what does happen when your braces come off? Your orthodontist will remove any extra bands, the wire, and ligature elastics. - Your orthodontist will probably have you brush your teeth well right there in the office, so that he or she can then try to remove any remaining bonding agent from your teeth.

Why Smartphones Overheat and How to Stop It
Why Smartphones Overheat and How to Stop It
21 dag sedan
The last decades were a wondrous time. We went from “brick” cell phones that barely fit into our pockets, to tiny devices everyone was always losing in their bags and purses. And then… back to giant cell phones eventually, but with several huge differences. They’re smart now. But with great power come inevitable problems. That comfort is fragile enough to be ruined in mere seconds, simply by the overheating of a smartphone. So you should be careful enough with your choice of device. If your phone overheats regularly, this video is what you’ve been looking for. Other videos you might like: 15 Mistakes That Shorten the Life of Your Phone sezone.info/view/MFotcExvdnZxa2c.html 7 Brilliant Things You Can Do With Your Smartphone sezone.info/view/UjhEeS1WN05uWXc.html How to Tell If Your Smartphone Is Fake Or Real sezone.info/view/STBuZHJRMlMtdk0.html TIMESTAMPS: The most common cause of heating up 1:52 Why you should never leave your phone plugged in excessively 3:10 Can Wi-Fi make a processor hot? 3:44 Remove the case! 4:19 Сan a battery explode from overheating? 💥 5:02 How to avoid overheating 6:00 #smartphone #phonebattery #brightside SUMMARY: - In relatively hot weather, and even with some air conditioning, your phone can heat up to 110 degrees F with no issue at all. - To get all the information about the precise temperature from your phone, of course, there’s an app for that. - Overheating is generally triggered by electricity that’s running through your smartphone when it processes something. - The most common cause of pocket devices heating up is when they run games. - It’s not only processors that heat your device up. A battery does too, since it’s the one and only source of electricity in a smartphone. - You may also want to keep in mind that closed apps aren’t always fully closed, and may continue to work in the background, overloading the processor with tasks and rapidly sucking the battery dry. - External heat is another big problem. But the only thing you can do about that is to avoid direct sunlight on your phone and remove the case. - Just like overheating may be caused by the excessive use of both a processor and a battery, it can also be dangerous for both of them. - The only way a battery can explode from overheating is from a heating loop. - To avoid overheating, you need to take care of your phone. It helps to use silicon-based phone cases. - Use only high-quality cables to charge your phone, and don’t charge over the max. An extra 15 minutes of work won’t make up for the loss if your phone starts to overheat. - Try lowering the brightness of your phone’s screen. It’ll not only prevent overheating, but will also be a good way to preserve your battery’s life. - If you can open up the backside of your phone, you can clean out the dust that typically collects there. On a scale this small, all dust will work like feathers in a puffy jacket - locking all the heat inside and preventing the phone from cooling down.

Why Trains Are So Expensive (Sometimes More Than Flights)
Why Trains Are So Expensive (Sometimes More Than Flights)
21 dag sedan
Have you noticed, when shopping for travel tickets, you occasionally come across prices that defy logic? All the time! For instance, you can get to your destination in 1 hour by plane or take a train for 7 hours and pay way more money! How are these fares fair? And how would you fair with these fares? And how do these passenger rail companies stay in business if air travel is faster and cheaper?! Well, trains do have their perks. The obvious benefits are catching it right in the city versus having to fight traffic all the way to the airport. You can also take as many liquids with you as you want, and there’s no stress at all if you’re afraid of flying! But the real explanations behind why train tickets cost so much have less to do with comfort and emotions and more about practicality… Other videos you might like: A Train Lost in a Tunnel in Italy, No One Can Find It sezone.info/view/ZDRtM0h2VEZHOVk.html& What If You Dig a Tunnel Under the Ocean? sezone.info/view/MFBaOEt3bHhoSWs.html& 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On sezone.info/view/dXE3bXp0VzFrblU.html& TIMESTAMPS: No roads in the sky 1:11 The largest expense 3:05 How much do passenger train companies actually make? 💰 4:24 Why things are easier for railroads in Europe 6:07 ❗️ The most expensive rides in the world: - The Maharajas Express Luxury Train, India 6:49 - The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, Russia 7:28 - Royal Scotsman, the UK 8:08 #trains #railroads #brightside SUMMARY: - When you travel by plane, it takes off at a certain airport and lands at another. The journey itself, no matter how long it is, happens up in the air, which needs no physical maintenance. - Trains, however, run on tracks. And to be able to move on those at high speeds, or even move on them at all, the tracks need to be in good condition. - From time to time, sections of tracks and ballast need to be renewed. While most of this work is now done by specialized machines, the materials and those machines don’t come cheap! - Expanding the route network and building new tracks is extremely expensive as well - just 1 mile costs over a million bucks! - Just 1 locomotive traveling from DC to New York will run you about $6.5 million if you’re interested in buying! - The largest expense, however, is not the tracks or the trains - it’s the people servicing them. - Like any company, and in this case a huge one, Amtrak needs to pay someone to run the business. So, 3% of the ticket price is used to cover administrative costs. - Even though everyone knows their name, Amtrak still has to advertise good deals and new rides. That’s another 2% of the cost. - There are also settlement fees the company has to bear. Yes, trains are an incredibly safe kind of transportation. But accidents still happen, and around 1% of that ticket cost would go to those who get affected by them. - In the end, you can see that the profit for the company is roughly 35% of the average price for this ride. - Things are easier for railroads in Europe because they have smaller territories to cover and connect with tracks, and much more passengers and trains traveling on those lines. - The Maharajas Express luxury train travels across Northwest and Central India and goes through most of the major tourist spots of the country. It consists of 23 cars and is basically a temporary palace for 88 guests. - The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express fit for Russian tsars starts in Moscow and goes all the way across the world’s largest country to the eastern city of Vladivostok in 15 days and 14 nights. - Unless you’re friends with the royal family and get personal invites to their festive receptions, you'll definitely be amazed by a ride with the Royal Scotsman. - The shortest possible tour lasts 3 days, and costs start at around $3,000 per passenger.

How to Survive a Day Without Money
How to Survive a Day Without Money
21 dag sedan
It seems impossible to survive even one day without money in the modern world. And yet, if you do find yourself in this situation, don’t panic. You don’t have to starve or use credit. Just follow the instruction! Of course, there are things you can’t do without, and if your fridge and your pockets are empty, what can you do? Don't try to get a free ride on public transport. If you get caught, you’ll be fined and will have to pay money you didn’t have in the first place. But you can ride a bicycle! Clothes, as well as furniture, home appliances, and pretty much anything else can be found on social media or in special apps - both free and on barter terms. As for food, you can always become a “freegan”! Of course, if you’re not daunted by the extreme.

Foodsharing is an ecological movement that was started in Germany in response to food waste. - In a lot of coffeehouses, you can get a free coffee that was paid for by a previous customer. Just ask the barista if they practice it. - Go to a food market, where local farmers or small private restaurants are presented. They usually give out free samples, which can fill you up if you go through the whole market! - You can make a post on your social media, in special groups or apps devoted to bartering. You’re lucky if you can draw or do handy work, or anything useful. - Go to a restaurant and offer your services in return for lunch or dinner. You can wash dishes, clean the kitchen, or bus tables. - The term “freegan” was offered in 1995 by Keith McHenry, a leader of a volunteer-run group that spreads food among homeless people. Freegans believe that humans treat nature only as consumers, making goods out of resources, and then wasting tons of them because it’s easier to throw them away than to recycle. - World-wise freegans know dumpsters - both private, and those near restaurants and supermarkets where one can find a lot of food waste. - If it’s warm enough, you can ride a bicycle - this way you’ll help the environment too. Hitchhiking is another way of getting somewhere, but it’s not necessarily safe, and be ready to change several cars before you get to your destination. - Clothes, as well as furniture, home appliances, and pretty much anything else can be found on social media or in special apps - both free and on barter terms. - Look for free books and movies in libraries. Cinemas have free shows, and museums have Doors Open Days - you just have to subscribe to their pages in social media and monitor updates, or find special offers in apps with coupons. - When journalist Michelle McGagh, from London, moved to a new house, she made up her mind to sell or give away everything she didn't need anymore. As a result she got rid of 80% of her belongings. - She took it a step further and spent a year without useless purchases. She had about $37 a week, which covered three meals for herself and her husband a day, toiletries, and house cleaning products.

Why Cruise Ships Are White
Why Cruise Ships Are White
21 dag sedan
When you hear the word “ship”, what color will it be in your imagination? Probably white. We’re used to seeing big white cruise ships. Is this color necessary or just fancy? Cars come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Yellow, green, purple, red - you name it. There are absolutely no problems with color choice, giving you the option to paint your car any color you like. Then why do ships still all look the same? It turns out there are a lot of reasons for it, but not all of them are true. Some people say it’s because the white color is better for detection, both visual and on the radar too. They assume the white color reflects the radio signal much better than any other color. Which theories are true and which aren’t?

SUMMARY: - Most small boats are whatever colors their owners want them to be. So one thing we already know here is that the white color isn’t some kind of rule from a mariner’s book or something. Big cruise ships are often navy-blue or even red in color. - If you’ve ever been in high seas that are also coincidentally called blue waters, you know that sometimes all you can see around you is blue. - The white color could possibly be helpful here to spot a decently sized ship, but clouds and reflections of light in the waves are also white. - Metal hulls are extremely good at reflecting radio signals, no matter what color they are. If the hull is made of fiberglass like a lot of yachts’ hulls are, then they’ll have some metal part in them to reflect the radar. - That means that white has absolutely no impact on any kind of detection in the sea, so we can rule this reason out for good. - If you keep in mind how aggressive saltwater is, any paint could become a concern. For metal ships, it gets even worse because they have to deal with rust. - Tanker staff learned one trick that helps with that, and it’s definitely not white paint. It’s red paint, obviously. This is why some ships keep their hull red under the waterline. - The black color absorbs almost all the sunlight it catches; this color has no reflective abilities. Sunlight isn’t only bright, but it also transfers energy in the form of heat. The more light gets absorbed - the more heating power it generates. - Red can reflect more light; up to 40% of it just bounces off and doesn’t produce heat. Grey is slightly better. It can deflect half of all light, so a grey hull will heat up two times slower than a black one. - The white-colored ships would only absorb 20% of all the sunlight, so it won’t heat up as much. This immensely reduces the stress on air conditioning systems and works wonders for energy efficiency.

What Your Laugh Reveals About Your Personality
What Your Laugh Reveals About Your Personality
21 dag sedan
There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones that LOL and those that ROFL. But laughter experts say that there are many more types. Are you a cackler? Then you're always the center of everyone’s attention. And you don’t only attract attention but also success. They’re bold and self-confident! Or maybe you're a guffawer? So what does that say about you? You're are extroverted and sociable. One such person in a group of friends is enough to keep any party or conversation lively. By the way, some people start off laughing almost discretely and then burst out into a guffaw - that’s called a “carry-on” laugh, and it’s impossible not to join in!

Snorters tend to be shy and introverted. They care about others and are afraid that their laughter might disturb someone. - Have you ever seen someone laugh so hard that tears started streaming down their cheeks? Such people have bright personalities, and they’re trustworthy. They aren’t afraid to show how they really feel and will never lie to you or let you down. - Wheezers have a great sense of humor, but they prefer to hide it to seem more serious and professional. It must be their shy and timid side driving wheezers into this sort of behavior. - Snickerers are easy-going, smart, and witty. They have a ton of friends and make new ones in a matter of minutes. - When something especially comical happens, even the most serious and humble people can’t help but laugh. Except, they do it in their own peculiar way: it’s their eyes that are laughing. This is a clear sign they don’t want any attention since they’re introverts and like to keep their feelings to themselves. - If you spot someone laughing with their mouth wide open but with perfectly serious eyes - that's a mirthless or fake laugh. Just be careful with a person who fakes laughter - you never know what else they could be faking… - Laughter can indicate joy, confidence, relief, love, loathing, and even discomfort and fear! - In fact, laughter rarely has anything to do with humor and jokes. - There’s more to laughter than just bonding - it also has a ton of health benefits. It helps lower blood pressure, reduces stress hormone levels, releases endorphins, and keeps your heart strong and healthy. - Humans aren't the only ones that laugh. Gorillas have mastered sign language and can go “ho ho” at visitors they like. - Your brain can also automatically tell the difference between fake and real laughter. It has a special area responsible for understanding others’ emotions.

Would You Survive If You Fell into a Volcano?
Would You Survive If You Fell into a Volcano?
24 dagar sedan
Volcanos are essentially hollow mountains filled with toxic gas and hot molten rock. They’re just as rocky and shelfy on the inside as they are on the outside. Temperatures inside a volcano can top 2,000°F. That means pretty much anything but titanium or platinum, which won’t melt until they hit a toasty 3,000°F, will drip-drip-drip into nothing. But humans can survive falling into a volcano! A Maasai porter fell into a Tanzania volcano back in 2007 and lived to tell the tale. Of course, he didn’t come out untouched by the hot molten rock, but he survived! It seemed like a miracle, but - with a little help from our old friend Adrenaline - the man managed to climb out!

It triggers your body’s “fight or flight response.” - You’ll immediately feel your heart speed up, making you quicker. Sugars in your blood break down, and your breathing gets faster. - We instantly flail our arms when we fall because it helped our primate ancestors. At least, according to Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. - Generations later, the instinct to flail your arms persists, and good news! It just might save you when you fall into that volcano! The more you move your arms, the more likely you are to grasp hold of a ledge. - Magma is simply a fancy word for liquid rock. But don’t let the word “liquid” fool you - this stuff is thick! No, you won’t bounce off it like a trampoline, but you won’t sink into it either. - In May of 2019, a 32-year-old soldier hopped over the guardrail of Kilauea, an active shield volcano in Hawaii. - Lucky, too, that the man was physically fit. He was a soldier, after all! Not necessarily a smart one. The man managed to land on a narrow ledge. - It took more than 2 hours, but a daring crew rappelled into the crater and rescued the rail-hopper. They hauled him out safely, and a helicopter flew him to the hospital. - All this should give you hope, but it should also teach you one valuable lesson: when it comes to guardrails, they put those there for a reason, so stay on the right side!

A Pilot Survived 3 Months at -60F
A Pilot Survived 3 Months at –60F
24 dagar sedan
It’s the coldest time of the Year. The date is December 21st, 1943 and 5 people are on-board a b-24 Bomber. The aircraft is nicknamed Iceberg Inez. It was on a mission to test an experimental system on the plane’s four propellers when it accidentally stalled and took a downward dive as if it were a roller coaster. Both the pilot and the co-pilot tried to take control, but a crash was seemingly inevitable. All their flight instruments were blinking out. Then, a pistol-like bang was heard from the tail of the plane and a few cracking sounds followed. This wasn’t a good sign...

They were flying over the Tanana River in Alaska - close to the Arctic Circle. - Leon grabbed his parachute, and before he even realized it, he was in free fall. He deployed his parachute and watched the Iceberg Inez taking a spin before it hit a mountain. - Leon landed on the fresh snow near the bed of the Tanana River. He was approximately 2 miles away from the crash. - When he touched down, he repeatedly shouted out in an attempt to locate his fellow crew members, but he had no luck. - The temperature dropped to -60F and Leon had no choice but to get up and gather some driftwood to start a fire. - Out of panic, Leon concluded that the best way to make it out alive was to leave the area and head downstream with the river. After all, the water surely had to drain into something. - Before he left, he shouted one last time to see if there was any sign of his buddies, but still nothing. - His stomach was constantly growling. In such freezing conditions, he had to consume more than 5,000 calories to sustain his weight. He even tried hunting, but that wasn’t in his field of expertise. - The cozy cabin he’d been dreaming of appeared in the distance, half-covered in snow. It was the happiest moment Leon had had in days. - There was nobody there. Inside, he saw a bed in the corner and a table in the center. On the table, he found burlap sacks filled with goodies. He took his knife out and started opening everything. - As he was walking, he got lost. He walked for many hours, desperate to find the cozy home. The landscape was unfamiliar, and since he’d been walking on ice, he couldn’t find his footprints to head back. - Days passed as he continued trudging through the wild. On March 10th, he stumbled across a trail and followed it. It led him to a river, and on the opposite side of the icy waters he spotted another cabin. But this one wasn’t empty. - There was a man in the cabin who took Leon in. It was the first time he’d come across a real person in 81 days. - A mail aircraft picked him up from that location, and took him to Ladd Field. - He met a nurse there that he fell in love with. They got married, and had 6 children together.

How Astronauts Make Oxygen in Space from Their Bodies
How Astronauts Make Oxygen in Space from Their Bodies
24 dagar sedan
Sending 1 lb of cargo into space costs about $10,000! So how do space agencies afford to send supplies like oxygen, water, and food to their astronauts? Before they found a more efficient solution, they’d pack all the water into space with them in their rockets. The water took up a lot of room that could’ve otherwise been used for other supplies. That, and the added weight wasted fuel. So short answer: nope, it doesn’t go with the crew from the get-go. That means they deliver it, right? That’d be too risky…and expensive! There’s no 100% guarantee that something bad won’t happen to the cargo ship at launch or on the way to the International Space Station. If the cargo doesn’t get to the station, then the next delivery will have to wait a very long time. That’s not an option since it’s dangerous for the astronauts.

Whether it’s drops of sweat, condensation from breathing, or going to the toilet, all this water gets processed through complex filtering systems. - Thanks to this complex system, it’s possible to produce a little over 4 lb of oxygen per day. That’s only enough for 2 people. The ISS crew usually consists of 6. To make up the difference, oxygen is delivered from Earth. - What about the food? Here, the ISS is entirely dependent on supplies delivered from Earth. All those freeze-dried packets of astronaut food go along with the crew when they head to the station, or separate cargo is sent. - According to NASA, astronauts dine on fruits, nuts, chicken, beef, seafood, candy, and even brownies! They also have coffee, tea, juices, and lemonade. - In 2015, members of the 44th ISS crew ate lettuce that was fully grown on board! The seeds had been sent from Earth. - Just like you and me, astronauts have garbage too. You’d think they could just chuck it out into the endless void of space, but that would be littering! Whenever they get a delivery, the cargo ship is docked to the station. - Just like you and me, astronauts have garbage too. Whenever they get a delivery, the cargo ship is docked to the station. The astronauts get what they need from it, and then they load this ship with their trash. - The cool thing about the International Space Station becoming more and more self-sufficient is that it’s almost like a trial for larger missions in the future.

What do the Baby Shark song and your 6-pack have in common? Both are about to enter your life and stay for good after you watch this video! Ab Challenge combines fitness and a catchy children’s tune about a baby shark and its family. Everyone from young gymnasts to professional hockey players started training their abs in sync with the earworm. No, seriously, once you hear it, the song doesn’t leave your head! But does it really work, or are all these people just having a good time? The moves look pretty easy, and the people doing it don't look like they’re putting much effort into the workout.

Stretch your arms out in front of you, and start doing the workout to the first words of the verse. - Spread your legs apart, then bring them back close together. Don't go too fast, control each move to keep your legs stable in the air. - The next move is alternating leg raises. Keep your abs pulled tight, arms and legs lifted up, and your lower back planted firmly on the ground. Then, one leg goes up toward the ceiling, and the other lowers to the floor. - Stay in that half-seated position. This time, you’re going to lift both legs up toward the ceiling and do V-ups. - The next exercise is alternating knee tucks. You bend one leg and bring your knee toward your chest. - Once the 5th verse kicks in about Grandpa Shark, you’ll start lifting both knees toward your chest. Control your breathing. - Now the whole family is going to go hunting in the 6th verse. At this point, you’ll just return to the very first position. From there, kick your legs up and down, kinda like you’re splashing in water. - The 7th verse will start before you know it, and it’s time for mountain climbers as you run away from the shark family. - Then you have to switch back over to the V position. Your abs will be on fire at this point. - In the 9th verse, the song will tell you “it’s the end” and that means you have one exercise left! It’ll be as if you’re doing a backstroke in the pool. Only, you have to do it with jazz hands. - If your muscles get sore (and they will!), don’t give up! It’s actually a good sign, as long as it’s not too painful. If you feel soreness 24 to 48 hours after working out, it means the muscles are changing and becoming stronger. - However, if the pain won't go away for too long and doesn't get any easier, you might wanna get that checked out. And if you feel any sharp pain in your joints during or after the workout, that's a red flag too. A 6-pack is great and all, but it's not worth risking your health, right? - The whole secret behind this workout is that you're doing it without a single break. Your arms and legs are always in the air, so you’re under constant tension. - So, no matter how funny it sounds and looks, this is a serious core workout that can transform your body. If you’re consistent about it and do even one set every day, you'll get visible results by the end of the month.

If an Asteroid Falls in the Ocean, Will It Cause a Tsunami?
If an Asteroid Falls in the Ocean, Will It Cause a Tsunami?
25 dagar sedan
What’s the worst thing you could ever imagine happening? A massive wildfire? Maybe a huge flood? How about a gigantic asteroid hitting the Earth’s Ocean? Do you ever wonder what would happen to the Earth if it got hit by an asteroid in the middle of the Ocean? Asteroids hit the Earth and the Ocean all the time, but the amount of damage they cause is so insignificant, it usually goes unnoticed. This is because they’re tiny in scale, and they get slowed down by the earth’s atmosphere. However, the bigger they get, the larger their threat. Every 2,000 years, a huge space rock about as big as a football field hits the Earth, and it can cause an enormous amount of damage...

SUMMARY: - Asteroids hit the Earth and the Ocean all the time, but the amount of damage they cause is so insignificant, it usually goes unnoticed. - Asteroids have rocky bodies, and most of the time, they’re small in size. They’re usually inactive, and just hang around, orbiting the Sun. - Hundreds of tons of dust and small particles hit the Earth every day. Since they’re so tiny, we don’t really notice them. - Approximately once a year, a car-sized asteroid hits the Earth’s atmosphere. It turns into a huge fireball and burns up completely before it touches the planet’s surface. - Any asteroid that’s about .5 mile would take a serious toll to the area of impact. - Every a few million years, a ginormous asteroid comes along, and it becomes a threat to the Earth’s civilization. - Around 66 million years ago, an asteroid that was approximately 9.3 miles in diameter hit the Earth. It left the impact crater that we all know today as the Chicxulub impactor. - The collision caused a ginormous tsunami, with waves as tall as 330 feet. - A cloud of blazing ash, dust and steam spread from the crater as the asteroid was tunneling underground. Particles and debris from the impact exited the Earth’s atmosphere. - During this catastrophe, a lot of carbonate rocks were destroyed, which produced a huge amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and created a greenhouse effect. - But what would happen if a smaller asteroid hit the Ocean instead of the Earth? Will it cause a tsunami? Well, the short answer is, no. - The waves will be local in the area of impact, but a strong Tsunami won’t be formed. The physics of a tsunami are a bit different. - It’ll cause some damage. To be more specific, the splashes that will form will travel tens of miles away. - It’s undeniable that strong winds and powerful shockwaves will cause damage to the surface of the planet. So, the further away the impact is from populated areas, the better. - What would really happen is that a huge wave would form at the area of impact in the Ocean, but it would break immediately, resulting in very little energy travelling further.

A Legendary Man Survived in a Whale's Stomach
A Legendary Man Survived in a Whale's Stomach
25 dagar sedan
Picture this: You’re an apprentice seaman on a whaler, and you’re taking your first ever voyage. Just as you’re sailing deeper into the ocean, your ship is attacked by a sperm whale, and it swallows you whole. Yikes! But after two days in its belly, you’re finally rescued, and found alive! So, it was the middle of February in 1891; James Bartley was just 21 years old and was ready to start his training as a seaman on a whaler. While onboard his first whaling ship in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean, they spotted a huge Sperm whale. It was about 0.5 a mile away from the ship, and they were getting closer. The closer they got to the beast, the larger it became...

An unpredictable race started between the immersed sperm whale and “The star of the East”. - The whale started thrashing its giant tail on the water, causing massive waves that crashed around the boats. - Bartley and his team realized that they were in dangerous waters and had to get out of there. - Suddenly, they felt a splintering crash underneath the hull, which sent their boat spinning into the air. The whale broke the wooden longboat into a million pieces, and the five men landed in the water. - Another longboat rushed to their rescue and picked up all the men in the water. Except for one apprentice - James Bartley. - Many hours had passed since that incident in the morning. And, right before sunset, the whale was still floating on the surface of the water. It was clear now that it was no longer alive. - That afternoon, as someone was investigating the bloated whale they captured the night before, he noticed something moving in its stomach. - Everyone thought that a huge fish was inside, and the doctor decided to perform an incision. - Right then and there, to everyone’s surprise, the missing sailor - James Bartley, slid out. Everyone cheered. He was alive. - He couldn’t speak, and he was taken into a confined cabin onboard the ship. He wasn’t allowed to leave the room. - He recalled how he was able to breathe, but after some time he blacked out. The young sailor couldn’t remember anything after that. - The crew members of the ship started sharing his story by word of mouth, and it began gaining momentum. - In 1896, the first article was published in the New York World, telling a small portion of the story. - Years later, a historian picked up the story and began an investigation. His name was Edward Davis. He read the stories that were published and noticed a lot of factual inconsistencies. - He found that James Bartley’s name wasn’t even on the crew member list. - And there was another flaw in the story: It would be scientifically impossible for a human being to survive inside a whale’s stomach, even if they’re swallowed whole.

Why Buses Have Bigger Steering Wheels
Why Buses Have Bigger Steering Wheels
25 dagar sedan
Have you ever stopped to think about how much we rely on buses? Whether you use one for school or utilize public transit, buses are so engrained in our daily lives that there’s a lot of questions we could-and should-be asking about them! Do you know what exactly is “School Bus Yellow”? It’s not really that primary yellow color. School buses are their own unique shade of yellow-you might even see it on a crayon! Also, there are a lot of laws that surround buses. And the rules are particularly tight for school buses! For example, steering wheels on school buses are subject to yearly inspections. By the way, why are they so big? Other videos you might like: How to Choose a Safe Seat in 7 Types of Transport sezone.info/view/cUY0YlJVTmJlTG8.html& 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On sezone.info/view/dXE3bXp0VzFrblU.html& Why Airplanes Are White sezone.info/view/S2NoUmRpVHpEejA.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why is the steering wheel so darn big? 0:24 How big are those steering wheels? 0:56 Why aren’t there seatbelts on buses? 1:25 Why are school buses yellow? 2:01 What exactly is “School Bus Yellow”? 2:38 How much do buses weigh? 3:10 How many people can a bus transport? 3:39 What does it take to become a school bus driver? 4:14 What was the first public transit bus like? 4:56 Who was the very first public transit bus driver? 5:29 How did we get to the modern buses we use today? 6:15 How much gas does it take to fill a school bus? 6:50 Bus-related world records 7:15 Where did the song “The Wheels on the Bus” come from? 8:10 #schoolbuses #buses #brightside SUMMARY: - When power steering became standard in the ‘50s, a big steering wheel had to be added to accommodate the rotation of those huge wheels. It helps the bus driver stay in control! - The steering wheels on buses are generally between 16 and 22 inches across. - Research shows that buses are one of the safest ways to travel, even without seatbelts; up to 40 times safer, in fact, than traveling by car! - If you live in the U.S., school buses are actually required to be yellow by law! This may have to do with how easily we can spot the color yellow-it’s one of the first colors on the spectrum that we see. - When it comes to school buses, there are different regulations that dictate their size. The average school bus weighs between 14,000 and 19,500 pounds. - The average school bus is 35 feet long and can carry 64 passengers. Obviously, students can’t stand while riding in a school bus, but you can in public transit! - If you wanna become a school bus driver, you must be at least 18 years old, and pass a physical and vision test. You’ll have to apply for a commercial learner’s permit and pass a thorough written test. - There are records of a man named John Greenwood operating a scheduled bus route from Manchester to Pendleton in the UK as early as 1824. These would’ve been the initial horse-drawn models. - School buses can hold between 60 and 100 gallons of diesel fuel. - The original composer of the song “The Wheels on the Bus” is unknown, but it was possibly written by a woman named Verna Hills. Published in 1939, the lyrics are a little different everywhere, It’s still sung in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia today!

Why Space Shuttles Take Off Only Vertically
Why Space Shuttles Take Off Only Vertically
26 dagar sedan
The view of a rust-colored rocket carrying an orbiter on its back and rushing to the sky on its fiery tail is iconic. But considering the last Space Shuttle launch was back in 2011, is this the last we’ll ever see of such a thing? What’s next? Could an improved shuttle be made that takes off and lands like an airplane? Our planet is a complex hodge-podge of all kinds of matter, which is combined into an impressive mass. All that mass works like a colossal magnet that allows the Earth to maintain one thing we all know and love - the atmosphere. But the atmosphere itself is also filled with matter. Airplanes don’t struggle this much with getting through the atmosphere. But what about shuttles?

But of course, that wouldn’t be possible without a huge force pushing the airplane along. - But let’s look at that space shuttle. The first obvious things are the cute, tiny, stubby wings that wouldn’t be any use for a horizontal takeoff. - The airplanes’ engines need air from the atmosphere to work. The shuttle’s engines obviously didn’t, since atmospheric air would’ve been hard to find in space. - To fly up, a rocket engine has to throw off enough thrust, and burn the right amount of fuel to do the job. - The power of a shuttle with three engines and two boosters is around 7.8 million pounds of thrust! - But would it even be possible to fly a shuttle into orbit if it was modified to use the atmosphere like planes? Unfortunately, the answer is no. - To escape the atmosphere, any object that starts from the Earth would have to be fast enough to cross the point of so-called escape velocity. - This velocity is needed to overpower the gravitational pull of the planet and let an object go into orbit. - A space elevator is the concept of a huge tower that connects to a satellite at the top, which moves in line with the rotational movement of the Earth itself. - Сarbon nanotubes were proved not sturdy enough for building a tower this huge, so the search for an ideal material continues. - Another project that uses a similar approach is called a SpaceTram. It’s a vertical vacuum tunnel that pushes a magnetically levitated shuttle. - It’s possible that people will use planes as a way of getting into orbit. The plane won’t go to space by itself. Instead, it’ll be used as a launch platform.

Why Chinese People Always Drink Hot Water
Why Chinese People Always Drink Hot Water
26 dagar sedan
Imagine yourself in China in the middle of July. The weather is boiling, and the only thing you can think about is a big glass of ice water. You ask for a drink at the nearest cafe and take a gulp. But the water’s so hot that it's burned your tongue! Yep, in China, drinking water is served piping hot. What's more, locals have it with all their dishes, be it winter or stifling summer heat. The answer to this mystery lies in Chinese culture and history. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the human body consists of yin and yang elements. And you stay healthy only if your yin and yang are in balance. Okay, what is this all about? Other videos you might like: 12 Habits That Help Chinese Women Stay Young sezone.info/view/djg1WmJ0U0tMMGc.html Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science sezone.info/view/anhzbllzQTU0OVk.html& Scientists Finally Explain Why Asians Look So Cute sezone.info/view/Q09rdnE3V0t5OVE.html& TIMESTAMPS: What happens when your yang gets too strong 0:32 How it helps you get rid of waste 1:32 Some more amazing facts about China: - Soccer appeared in China 2:08 - The sunrise at 10 AM 2:28 - New Year in China 2:55 - Fortune cookies weren’t invented in China 3:22 - The fastest train 3:38 - Skyscrapers in China 4:03 - China's national sport 4:36 - Facts about chopsticks 5:01 - The Great Wall 5:33 - Terracotta Army 6:46 - The main reasons for different unexpected food combinations 7:10 - Their version of Bigfoot 7:39 #China #Asia #brightside SUMMARY: - So, let's say your yang gets too strong. In this case, your internal temperature will rise, and you’re likely to get ill. That's why it's crucial to get rid of the extra yang (or, in other words, excess heat) in your body. - And however counterintuitive it may sound, the best way to do this is by drinking hot water, or other hot beverages. - Being able to drink hot water was kind of a privilege and was reserved for the elderly, the sick, and pregnant women. - Another reason for drinking hot water during meals is that it's supposed to improve digestion and soothe the digestive tract. - Soccer appeared nowhere else but in China about 2,200 years ago! Or at least it was the game that later transformed into the soccer we know today. - With an area of more than 3.7 million square miles, China is a huge country. - China is the country with the largest population on the planet. More than 1.4 billion people live there! - The first day of the year in China falls on the new moon, which usually happens between January 21 and February 20. - Fortune cookies weren’t invented in China! They began in San Francisco, and nowadays, more than 3 billion fortune cookies are produced every year. - China is the country of railroads. Imagine this: if you combined all the Chinese railroad tracks, you’d be able to wrap them around the Earth two times! - Table tennis, or Ping-pong, is China's national sport, and the Chinese are really good at it! - Number 8 is a lucky number in China. The reason for this may lie in the fact that in Chinese, the word "prosperity" sounds like the word "eight." - China is also the home of the world-famous Terracotta Army, which consists of approximately 8,000 clay soldiers who were supposed to guard the Emperor's tomb in Xi'an. - You have to thank the Chinese for inventing toilet paper! But at first, it wasn't just for anybody - only the emperor could use it. - One of the main reasons for different unexpected food combinations is that traditional Chinese medicine claims that all the tastes must be balanced. - China has its own version of Bigfoot. Its name is Yeren, which means "wild man," and it supposedly lives somewhere in the mountains of the Hubei Province, which is covered in dense forests. - The most popular hobby in China is collecting stamps. What's more, it's seen as a status symbol!

That's Why Fire Trucks Are Red
That's Why Fire Trucks Are Red
26 dagar sedan
Everything about a firetruck makes us stop and look at it. They’re big, bright, loud, and they carry brave people who save lives. But have you ever wondered why they’re red? The answer isn’t 100% clear, but there are a few theories out there. By the way, other colors have also been used for them. Studies have shown that while that red hue reaches our eyes first in the daytime, it’s not best for at night. When it’s dark out, our eyes are better at seeing colors with a smaller wavelength like greens and blues. So some cities have adopted one of these colors for their firetrucks instead of the traditional crimson! Other places have even more surprising colors like orange, pink, yellow, and lime green!

Back then, red was the cheapest color of paint you could buy, so they went with the budget-friendly option. - Another theory says that back when fire departments ran on volunteers, there was a lot of pride and competition between departments from town to town. Red was the most sought-after color because it’s bold and catches the eye. - Fire departments wanted their trucks to stand out among the thousands of dark vehicles and wagons on the road. - Fire extinguishers, hydrants, STOP signs and lights - they’re all bright red like a cherry. - Red has the highest wavelength of all the other colors of the rainbow, so our brain registers it first. - Back in the days when fire engines were pulled by horses, a dalmatian would run ahead of them and bark loudly to clear the path. - The earliest fire engine was from Ancient Greece. It was only a large pump in an aqueduct system that shot water, but the concept evolved in Ancient Greece. - The fire engine is what brings the pumps and hoses to the scene, while the truck delivers all the ladders in case they’re needed. - Firefighters are trained to go up sky-high on these ladders. But no worries - they’re built to remain stable in 50 mph winds! - Depending on what equipment it carries and how big the firetruck is, they cost between $500,000 and $1,000,000! - The fastest firetruck in the world is called the Hawaiian Eagle, and it holds the record for the fastest firetruck in existence, and it can reach speeds of up to 407 mph. - Surprisingly, the average firetruck only has around 500 horsepower! -It’s a little-known fact that the flashing lights and super loud siren are on the fire engine, not the truck.

What Happens When Lightning Strikes a Plane
What Happens When Lightning Strikes a Plane
26 dagar sedan
It was a cold rainy day in October of 2016. Huge balls of hail crashed into the ground. In short, it wasn’t a good day to fly, and Wow Air Flight 404 headed from Reykjavík, Iceland to Paris, France would soon understand why… That iconic fuchsia-colored plane was struck by a massive bolt of lightning not long after taking off! But did she go down? You’d think so given that a single lightning bolt carries 1 billion volts of electric force with it. So, an exterior burnt black like a piece of coal? A shredded fuselage? A fire on board? No, nope, and negative.

Security rules don’t allow pilots to fly into a storm front. The plane should go around a thundercloud but never above or under it. - Ok, but if a lightning strike doesn’t bring a plane down or do any threatening damage, then why do they avoid storms? Well, it’s not because of the lightning itself but extreme turbulence that might happen inside a storm. - As it is now, with the existing safety rules in place, lightning hits a plane 1-2 times a year if the aircraft is used regularly. But even then, it doesn’t usually lead to any serious circumstances. - Out of 3,000 plane-related incidents since 2000, only 8 of them were caused by lightning strikes. - Retired pilot Chris Hammond explains that before an aircraft goes into service, it gets tested for all possible incidents. That includes a lightning strike simulation. - The bolt usually hits the plane in the area of its nose and leaves near the tail and partially through the wings. It does that because it chooses the path of least resistance. - Even if the flight makes it to the destination and everything seems ok, technicians still carefully examine the aircraft once it’s on the ground to see if there’s any micro damage to its skin. - Spots where the lightning entered and exited the plane’s exterior usually look like small melted holes no more than half an inch in diameter. They can be fixed very quickly. - But can passengers notice anything on board during this impromptu light show? Sure, you can hear a loud strike and see flashes outside the plane. - Lightning is not a problem in modern aviation. A lot of design solutions protect airplanes from any severe damage, and the risk of getting into an accident caused by lightning is next to zero. - In fact, the biggest risk caused by a lightning strike (other than any turbulence going on out in that storm) is that passengers who notice it can get scared and start panicking.

Why Japan Has Left-Hand Traffic
Why Japan Has Left-Hand Traffic
27 dagar sedan
If you live in the West, you probably have only a passing familiarity with the geographically small but economically powerful nation of Japan. It's the country that brought us PlayStations, anime, and tiny cars. But there are a lot of surprising quirks of Japanese culture most westerners aren't familiar with. When you think of driving on the left side of the road, which country do you think of? If you live in Europe or North America, jolly old England comes to mind. India, Australia, and South Africa are also reasonable guesses. These countries, and most of the others with left-side driving, were once part of the British empire, so it's no wonder they inherited the UK's driving habits. But Japan was never part of the British Empire, so why they drive on the right?

SUMMARY: - It turns out that while Japan was never a dominion of Her Majesty, British companies were responsible for building Japan's first railways in the 1870s. They brought their lane preference with them. - Kit-Kat sounds almost exactly like the common Japanese phrase Kitto Katsu. This translates to "You will surely win," and is the cultural equivalent of an English speaker saying, “good luck.” Nestlé was quick to seize on the luckiest bit of free advertising in history, leading the Kit-Kat to become the most popular chocolate bar in Japan. - Finding out that KFC is considered a traditional Christmas dinner in Japan might come as a shock to some people. Customers will line up around the block and to-go orders must be made months in advance to guarantee they’ll be enough to go around. - Japan became the sole holder of an imperial title following the collapse of the Ethiopian monarchy in 1974. While the Emperor no longer wields direct power, he continues to hold a position of extreme cultural importance as both head of state and of spiritual traditions. In addition to being the last Empire standing, Japan's Yamato dynasty is the oldest royal family in the world, allegedly dating all the way back to the year 660 BC. - While plenty of Japanese vending machines sell traditional snack foods, the sky’s the limit as far as automated sales are concerned. This includes neat but relatively reasonable things such as fresh fruit and hot coffee, as well as oddities such as clothing, shoes, umbrellas, surgical masks, and even cassette tapes. - While most of the Japanese companies you've heard of are sprawling multinationals with multibillion-dollar incomes, huge corporations actually represent a tiny fraction of the local market. With small and medium-sized businesses dominating Japan's economy, most workplaces don't have the resources to update their technology regularly.

What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider
What If You Swallowed the Most Venomous Spider
27 dagar sedan
It’s been said that a person swallows about eight spiders in their sleep every year. It's hard to say if that story is true or not but it makes a kind of sense. Spiders like warm dark places and the inside of your mouth sure fits that description. Gross as it sounds, if the story’s true, it seems to be mostly harmless. But what if it wasn’t? What if you swallowed a spider that wasn’t just venomous, but the most toxic spider in the world? Let's find out! But please, please, don’t try this at home. Do not eat live venomous spiders! Other videos you might like: What to Do When You See a Spider sezone.info/view/WTd0RFFadWVhR2c.html& If You See a Spot on a Banana, Throw It Away Immediately! sezone.info/view/VGFPdUdMZElMWVE.html& If You Get This Plant at Home, You’ll Never See Mice, Spiders, or Ants Again sezone.info/view/T2RKblJ4WWpPbUk.html& TIMESTAMPS: The Sydney funnel-web spider 0:55 What would happen if you swallowed it? 2:14 Why its venom is so dangerous 3:00 And what about the poison? 4:43 Is Atrax’s venom fatal for your pet? 6:41 If a beetle gets bitten 7:11 #spiders #whatif #brightside SUMMARY: - This hairy little monster is known as the Sydney funnel-web spider, or “Atrax robustus” if you want to show off. - The Sydney funnel-web can hold its breath for over a day, in some cases surviving underwater for up to thirty hours. - Atrax really don’t like to be handled, and their fangs are large and powerful enough to punch a hole in your fingernail. - The Atrax’s venom is a special kind of nasty, attacking its prey's nervous system. Symptoms will begin within minutes as the neurotoxin starts shorting out your nerves. - After being bitten, your heart will start beating rapidly as your blood pressure spikes through the roof. This is followed by breathing trouble, muscle spasms, and numbness around the mouth. - Finally, the venom begins to attack the brain, causing disorientation and eventually loss of consciousness. In as little as fifteen minutes after the initial bite… - You're in for anywhere from two to twelve injections depending on the severity of your symptoms. - Anyway, let’s say you managed to wrangle a Sydney funnel-web into your mouth without getting bitten. What happens then? - For the record, something is poisonous if you get sick from eating it, and venomous if you get sick from being bitten. There may be a lot of venomous spiders, but no one’s ever found one that’s poisonous. - Venom is dangerous if it gets in your blood, but harmless if swallowed; although I have no idea why or how anyone would end up doing so. - It turns out, most mammals are entirely immune to the Atrax’s venom. Only invertebrates and primates are vulnerable, anything else gets off with the equivalent of a bee sting.

A 700-year-old Glacier Has Melted Due to Climate Change
A 700-year-old Glacier Has Melted Due to Climate Change
27 dagar sedan
Blue glaciers are a trademark of Iceland, a Northern country, 11% of whose territory is covered with ice. But glaciers have started to disappear, and there’s a possibility that soon, they’ll vanish altogether. Okjokull glacier was formed about 700 years ago. In 1901, it stretched for 15 square miles and had a depth of 165 feet. It now takes up less than half a square mile and is only 50 feet deep. It took a century for the huge glacier to turn into a small piece of ice; and in 2014, the glacier stopped moving and was officially considered extinct. And a similar occurrence has happened all around the world.

SUMMARY: - Okjokull lost its prefix “jokul” which means “glacier” in Icelandic, and they started calling it Ok, after the volcano on which it sits. - A geologist from Iceland, Oddur Sigurdsson, predicted the quick disappearance of glaciers as far back as 10 years ago. 56 of 330 small glaciers have disappeared in the Northern part of Iceland already, but Okjokull was the biggest of them all. - A similar occurrence has happened all around the world. Glaciers now cover about 10% of the Earth's surface, but are quickly melting because the average temperature on Earth has been steadily rising. - Pedersen Glacier, located in Kenai Fjords National Park, receded throughout the 20th century, exposing Pedersen Spit and Pedersen Lagoon. There are almost no traces of the glacier left now. - Carroll glacier used to be 15 miles long, but little of it is left now. A calm lake, touching the base of a small hill, is in its place. The snow that used to lie on top of the hills and lakeshores also melted, and now everything is green. - The territory, which is mostly green now, used to be covered with a thick layer of ice and snow a hundred years ago. Muir Glacier can hardly be recognized now after the glacier sunk back about 12.5 miles. - The vast icy expanses of Muir glacier have turned into a huge lake. There used to be no plants here because of the low temperatures, but after the glacier melted, the valley bloomed and filled with ocean water, creating Muir Inlet. - Toboggan Glacier used to cover a large territory, but less than a hundred years later, it’d thinned by 492 ft. It was a dull gray landscape before, but by the year 2000, brushwood had covered the slopes of the hills. - Greenland is #2 on the list of places that are losing their glaciers quickly. - In just one day, July 31, 2019, Greenland lost 11 billion tons of ice; and 197 billion tons in the whole month of July. This is 3 times higher than ecologists had predicted. - #3 in the list of the fastest melting regions is the Southern Andes, which lost 1.2 trillion tons of glacier ice over half a century. - Qori Kalis Glacier, in Peru, one of the few tropical glaciers, has been melting for 33 years, and continues to melt at an alarming rate. - In 2009, Bolivia had to close down the Chacaltaya ski resort. It was situated at a height of between 15,400 and 17,700 feet, and was the highest ski resort in the world. - In 2005 a snowcap on top of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania melted for the first time in 11,000 years. The height of the mountain is 19,350 feet, and it’s never been that warm there. - 9 years ago, NASA started mission IceBridge to observe the polar ice in the Arctic and Antarctic. - This year, they reported that the polar ice sheets are smaller than ever, and the speed of the melting is faster than scientists predicted.

What Happens If You Put the Wrong Fuel in Your Car
What Happens If You Put the Wrong Fuel in Your Car
27 dagar sedan
Picture this: you’re driving on a highway, and suddenly see something you’ve failed to notice earlier: your gas tank is almost empty! You drive to the closest gas station, only to find they have no other gas but 87. Should you pump it inside your car or not? What’s the difference between those numbers? In fact, gasoline can actually be different, and it’s not one type fits all. In the US, the most typical numbers you’ll see are 87, 89, and 92. In other parts of the world, the numbers can vary, but most common ones are 91, 95, and 98. The higher the number value, the higher the cost of the fuel, so it might seem natural to choose the cheapest one and go with it, but it’s not as simple as it sounds. Other videos you might like: 13 Car Tips That Will Save Your Trips sezone.info/view/a0V0bE5Lcm83Qm8.html& How to Survive In a Sinking Car sezone.info/view/V21yT1dSeDV4VTg.html& 16 Driving Hacks from Experienced Drivers sezone.info/view/czRFbUlLZVBIdWM.html TIMESTAMPS: What do these numbers mean? 0:24 If you have an older car, you’re lucky! 1:06 The “knocking” 😱 2:36 Why higher octane fuel costs more 4:44 Ethanol fuel 5:12 The diesel engines! What’s wrong with these guys? 7:12 #cars #drivingtips #brightside SUMMARY: - It’s a surprising thing to say, but if you have an older car, you’re lucky. That’s because you generally don’t have to care about which type of gas to pump inside your vehicle. - The 87 is a basic type of gas that fits most older cars. 89 is a midgrade octane rating that’s suitable for newer vehicles; and 92 is the premium gasoline that’s mostly required to drive elite and sports cars, but sometimes even new middle-segment automobiles can demand the 92 and nothing below that. - Manufacturers may require a higher octane fuel because their engines receive more air thanks to supercharging or turbocharging. - More air in the engine means faster ignition, and that can lead to early detonating of the mix. With high-octane fuel, this is usually out of the question, which can’t be said about the low-octane type. - The damage caused by wrong fuel is not immediate, though. You’ll probably be able to drive for weeks before encountering any trouble. - In the long run, the cost of repairing the engine will outweigh the fuel economy by far. In addition, the higher the octane rating, the “cleaner” the gas, so it will both help keep your car in a good condition and reduce your emissions. - Some time ago, however, a new type of gas appeared on the market, and it has a separate label: E10 or E15. The letter E stands for ethanol, while the number indicates its percentage in the fuel - 10 or 15%, respectively. - Ethanol is basically one of the most efficient additives in gasoline. It has a high octane rating by itself (about 109), it’s much safer for the environment, it’s renewable, and it reduces dependence on oil. - What could happen if you accidentally pump diesel into your gas-powered car? At first, you’ll drive as if nothing’s wrong. That’s because the engine will use up the remains of gasoline in the tank. But as soon as those last few drops are expended, your car will just stop. - If the opposite happens, however, and you fill your diesel tank with gasoline, things get much worse.

15 Things the Queen Hasn't Tried in Her Life
27 dagar sedan
Although modern royal families are way more down-to-earth than their predecessors, there are still a lot of everyday things they never do. Queen Elizabeth II was brought up in a pretty strict environment. As a result, she’s never done a lot of the things you do every day without giving it a second thought! Do you know, for example, that the Queen has never taken a selfie? Yep, unfortunately, royal protocols don't approve of this innocent hobby. Also, she’s never taken a driving test. But that doesn't mean that the Queen can't drive - oh, she CAN and DOES! In fact, she loves driving very much and is often seen behind the wheel of her favorite Range Rover. 🚙 Other videos you might like: 10 Facts Proving Even the Queen Has Strange Habits sezone.info/view/aEp4UmpWYUlFRms.html 9 Things No One Can Do When Meeting the Queen sezone.info/view/UkNwSDZjTWwxb2M.html& 20 Secrets Buckingham Palace Is Hiding from Strangers sezone.info/view/SWV3TWkwdURqWFk.html TIMESTAMPS: She never went to school 0:22 She's never taken a selfie 0:50 She's never broken in her new shoes 👡 1:07 She's never gone grocery shopping 1:44 She’s never taken a driving test 2:20 She's never had a 9 to 5 job 2:49 She’s never had a social media account 3:17 She's never dated 😟 3:47 She’s never filled her dogs' bowls with food 4:24 She’s never voted 5:14 She's never had a passport 5:49 She's never opened her presents on Christmas Day 🎅 6:25 She's never traveled without a pack of her own blood 7:01 She’s never celebrated her birthday only once a year 7:29 She’s never been to the gym 🏋 7:58 #royalfamily #queen #brightside Preview photo credit: A local youth takes a selfie photograph in front of Queen Elizabeth II during a visit to St George's indoor market on June 24, 2014 in Belfast, Northern Ireland: By PETER MACDIARMID/AFP/EAST NEWS, www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/30571014/i/6/t/8 24/06/2014. Belfast, Northern Ireland. A young male tries to do a selfie with Britain's Queen Elizabeth as she tours St.Georges Market in Belfast. The Queen is on a 3 day tour of Northern Ireland: By Paul McErlane/i-Images / Polaris/East News, www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/33008556/i/7/t/8 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - Queen Elizabeth II is a very educated person. She was tutored privately, along with her sister Princess Margaret. - Even though some people have probably taken selfies with members of the royal family in the background, Queen Elizabeth herself has never been in a selfie willingly. - Even though she's been ordering the same style of shoes from the same company for years, the queen still needs someone to make them comfortable first. - Grocery stores are seen as something un-royal; that's why members of the royal family aren't supposed to buy food on their own. - In her youth, during tough times, the future queen worked as a military truck driver and mechanic. - She met Prince Philip when they were still children. But Princess Elizabeth fell in love with her future husband only sometime later, when she was 13 years old, after meeting him on a tennis court. - There’s an in-house chef whose task is to make gourmet meals for the royal dogs. - Legally, the Queen can vote at any elections or referendums. Her Majesty just chooses not to. - She doesn't need to prove her identity to immigration officials or show any travel documents. - Every year during the festive season, the royal family travels to the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk to celebrate the holidays there. - The Queen's real birthday is on April 21, but it's officially celebrated on the second Saturday of June. - People who know the Queen say that she’s very disciplined, and thanks to this character trait, she stays healthy and in good physical condition.

Why Doors in Public Toilets Don't Reach the Floor
Why Doors in Public Toilets Don't Reach the Floor
28 dagar sedan
How do you feel about public restrooms? Dread? But have you ever wondered why toilet stall doors rarely reach all the way to the floor? Well, it turns out that there’s not one, but several fully valid reasons for not enclosing bathroom stalls! Some of them are obvious, while others turned out to be unexpected. For example, fully-enclosed stalls give visitors a cozy feeling of isolation. They cut out the noise of heavy bathroom traffic, and as a result, people lose the sense of others who're waiting for their turn. They get more relaxed and spend longer on taking care of their business. Also, leaving the gap makes bathrooms easier to clean!

They cut out the noise of heavy bathroom traffic, and as a result, people lose the sense of others who're waiting for their turn. - A custodian can simply run their mop under the doors instead of wasting time on opening and closing each of them. - Next to many public toilets, there are closets, drinking fountains, and other utilities. And a door that opens outward would cause a lot of inconvenience to those who need to use these amenities. - Also, doors that open inward help to handle unpleasant smells, which aren't rare for public bathrooms. - A "push-to-enter" door also makes sense if you're going to the bathroom to wash something off your hands. This way, you can use your shoulder to open the bathroom door, and you don't have to touch the door handle.

If we do nothing, the Amazon could be gone within 100 years. What would that mean for us? Well, did you know that a lot of the ingredients in our modern medicines come from the plants of the Amazon? These include the most important medications, such as essential vaccines. Millions of people depend on the Amazon basin for their income. So it would certainly be devastating for South American people. Also, if the fires continue, not only will we lose the huge oxygen source, but extra pollution will be released. And that is not all!

If it was suddenly gone, a lot of South America’s exports and businesses would disappear with it. - Our planet gets 20% of its oxygen from this Rainforest, due to its massive size. - Covering just over 2 million square miles, the Amazon is home to 30% of our planet’s wildlife. - If the Amazon were destroyed, you can kiss your morning joe goodbye, in addition to fruits, rice, and CHOCOLATE, just to name a few. - In addition to oxygen and medicinal plants, we’d also lose a substantial supplier of minerals, fresh water, and food. - Science has shown that rainforests, in general, influence the climate both globally and locally. - Unhealthy soil would add to the disaster: excessive rain + unanchored soil = mudslide. Farmland and homes would be overcome with rain and mud. - Rural people will be forced into the cities, which are already home to millions. This will cause overcrowding, which comes with its own problems.

Venus May Have Been Habitable
Venus May Have Been Habitable
28 dagar sedan
The atmosphere of Venus is corrosive, scorching-hot, and extremely toxic. The planet's peppered with fire-breathing volcanoes, massive mountains, countless craters, and gigantic lava plains. The temperatures on the planet are so incredibly high that they could melt lead. And the atmospheric pressure is so immense that it would instantly crush any living being. But recently, scientists have discovered that millions of years ago, Venus was probably nothing like the uninhabitable, hostile world it is today! The newest scientific theory claims that Venus could’ve had a pleasant, stable climate for billions of years before something went wrong. In fact, the planet resembled Earth as it used to be at the beginning of its life...

A land-ocean pattern like that above was used in a climate model to show how storm clouds could have shielded ancient Venus from strong sunlight and made the planet habitable: By NASA, climate.nasa.gov/news/2475/nasa-climate-modeling-suggests-venus-may-have-been-habitable The Magellan probe that orbited Venus from 1990 to 1994 was able to peer through the thick Venusian clouds and build up the above image by emitting and re-detecting cloud-penetrating radar. Visible as the bright patch below central North is Venus' highest mountain Maxwell Montes. Other notable features include numerous mountains, coronas, impact craters, tessera, ridges, and lava flows: By NASA, www.nasa.gov/press-release/goddard/2017/scientist-to-discuss-venus-the-forgotten-mysterious-planet-at-library-of-congress Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - Astronomers did thorough research and built a model of a virtualized Venus-like world. - This model demonstrated that for most of its history, the hot planet had oceans with liquid water, adequate temperatures, and stable tectonic plates. - During that time, the planet was most likely covered with oceans, which were from 30 to 1,000 ft deep. Also, some water was locked in the soil of the planet. - For 3 billion years, right until something irrevocable happened 700 million years ago, Venus could’ve been habitable! - The main theory links the dramatic changes on Venus with a massive geological event which made more than 80% of the planet resurface. - The magma solidified on the surface of the planet, covering the rocks with a thick, impenetrable layer. And this barrier prevented the rocks from reabsorbing the CO2. - The atmosphere on the planet soon became 90 times as dense as on Earth. It’s no wonder that, combined with enormous amounts of CO2, it led to a runaway greenhouse effect. - Even though the climate of Venus changed so dramatically, and the planet seems to be totally uninhabitable, scientists don't deny that one day the hot planet could be transformed again! - This planet has the most circular orbit of all the planets in the Solar System. - Venus has more volcanoes than any other planet in the Solar System. Astronomers have already discovered up to 1,600 on the surface, but there might be others, too small for people to see. - Winds on Venus can reach incredible speeds. In the middle cloud layer of the atmosphere, they can accelerate up to 450 miles per hour! And that's faster than the swiftest tornado on our planet. - Venus’ slow rotation causes its magnetic field to be way weaker than that of Earth. - Venus is one of the very few planets we can see crossing in front of the sun. Unfortunately, it happens very rarely. - Venus is the brightest planet in the sky. And, it's the second brightest celestial object, after the Moon.

Why Planes Shouldn't Have Free Wi-Fi
Why Planes Shouldn't Have Free Wi-Fi
28 dagar sedan
It seems like there are Wi-Fi hotspots literally everywhere these days. You can connect to the net at restaurants, banks, office buildings and, in many places, public transportation. But what about airplanes? A few years ago, boarding a commercial airliner meant cutting yourself off from the rest of the world - communications wise. Now, more and more airlines offer inflight Wi-Fi. You might be thrilled, but it turns out there are people who beg to differ. So, what’s up? Is inflight Wi-Fi a bad thing? And how do planes get the Internet from 35,000 feet above the ground?

They work a lot like your cell phone. - The whole plane basically becomes one huge hotspot, and an on-board router distributes the Wi-Fi signal to the passengers. - The only problem with this type of connection is that it's only possible over land, because there are obviously no towers in the water. - The US currently has a more developed infrastructure for both satellite and ground-based systems, so the connection you can get flying over the States is stronger and cheaper than in Europe, for example. - Like when using any other shared network, your private or financial data could be compromised by cyber criminals. - The equipment itself is expensive; the antenna catching the signal increases drag, causing the plane to need more fuel; and there are also engineering and maintenance costs to keep it all working. - In case you're annoyed with the low speed, refuse to use Wi-Fi on board out of principle, or simply fly the no Wi-Fi airlines, here's a list of ideas to keep yourself busy during your flight - You can use your off-the-grid time to edit them or create a posting plan using offline apps that let you see what the pictures will look like on your Instagram grid. - If you're traveling with your laptop, don't miss an opportunity to clean it and organize the files you have on it. - There are all kinds of podcasts in this world - from how to motivate yourself to be more productive, to what a journey inside a black hole would look like. - You can also try setting some goals, creating a mind map of the person you want to become, or make a pros-and-cons list if you have some dilemma that's bugging you. - In case you packed in a rush, go through your carry-on and rearrange it in a more organized way. - You're not allowed to bring liquids or large bottles on board, but you can take a fiber face mask, spa gloves or a de-puffing eye mask with you. They'll make the air travel experience a little less dramatic for your skin. - Finally, there are always the good old read a book, listen to some music, watch a movie, or chat to your neighbor options.

What Your Signature Says About You
What Your Signature Says About You
29 dagar sedan
Graphology is the science of analyzing signatures. Yeah, people actually study this stuff! Your signature and handwriting are completely unique to you! Have you ever wondered what they reveal about your personality? For example, if you can clearly read the first and last name, that means that person is straightforward, sincere, and honest, and they likely have nothing to hide. If you can’t read the signature, that individual may have problems with authority and isn’t very confident in themselves. They may have some secrets, too… Other videos you might like: 10 Questions That'll Reveal Who You Really Are sezone.info/view/dGVuTko5eXpWYkk.html What You See First Reveals Unexpected Truth About You sezone.info/view/UjRGMjZxSVROenc.html What Your Body Parts Say About Your True Character sezone.info/view/YlVWTlQwODNSSjA.html& TIMESTAMPS: Is the signature legible? 0:21 Is it a full signature? 0:45 What is the angle of the signature? 1:08 How big are the letters? 1:34 How does the first and last name compare in size? 2:09 Are the letters curved or straight? 2:36 What is the size of any uppercase letters? 3:08 What is the pressure? 3:44 Are there any extra embellishments or decorations? 4:12 Is the signature uniform and straight? 4:47 👉 Your handwriting is something that can be studied too! 👈 5:13 #personalitytest #handwriting #brightside SUMMARY: - An incomplete signature indicates a very private but strong and independent person. It’s also a sign of efficiency. - If someone’s signature is angled upward, this means that they’re a fighter, ambitious, full of life, and has the need to succeed in their career. This person may also be impatient, though. - If the letters within the signature are large, that person is most likely a very confident extrovert...maybe too confident. Small letters indicate an introvert. - Say someone signs their name, and their first name looks bigger than their last name. This means that they’re a very independent and original person and feels that they can and should only be represented by who they are as a person. - If the letters in your signature are curvy and loopy, you’re probably a laid-back, happy person with a good sense of style. You probably have a lot of friends and a bubbly personality. - If any uppercase letters are way larger than other letters-like three times as big - that person probably has a big ego and doesn’t like criticism. - If you’re pressing hard on the paper, you may have an authoritarian personality, which could also mean you have a temper. If you put a soft pressure on the paper, this will create a smoother signature, which means that you are calm, adaptable, and pleasant to be around. - Is your signature on a straight line-not at an angle at all? This means that you are completely in control, of your emotions and otherwise. You’re a balanced person, who makes equal time for work and play. - If your regular handwriting slants to the right, you are an open, social person and are ready to take on the world. - If the loops on your Ls are closed, you might be feeling tense or stressed. If the loops on your Ls are open, that means you’re relaxed and spontaneous, and you enjoy being creative and expressing yourself. - If your S’s are hard-edged or pointy, you are a deep, intellectual thinker and like new challenges; this also indicates high ambition. - A big space between words indicates that you like your freedom and independence. A small space between words says that you don’t like to be alone and enjoy the company of others. - If you finish off your t with a long cross, you are determined and enthusiastic, but you might be a bit stubborn. - Handwriting experts say that if you make the dot higher on the page, you have an active imagination! If your dot is close to your i, you have a determined and focused mind, and you can concentrate well. - Righties also have really good language and speaking skills, and are likely to live longer! - Lefties process information at a pretty fast rate, and are more likely to be geniuses. Lefties also tend to be more creative, self-expressive, and into the arts.

What If You Fell off a Cruise Ship
What If You Fell off a Cruise Ship
Månad sedan
In August 2018, a UK woman was sailing on the Adriatic Sea. Seems like nothing out of the ordinary, just the perfect summer vacation out on the open water! The Norwegian Star cruise liner was heading to Venice, Italy after departing from Vargarola, Croatia. The woman was on the 7th deck, when, right before midnight, she fell off the back of the ship! It happened about 60 miles off the coast of a city called Pula. Too far away to call for help… As soon as the crew found out about the incident, they launched a major search-and-rescue. They checked onboard CCTV cameras to find out exactly when the fall happened. That way, they could pinpoint the ship’s precise location at that time. The liner also contacted the authorities, and they dispatched a patrol ship, a plane, and 2 rescue boats to look for the woman.

The sun came up, and she was still nowhere to be found. But then, at about 9:30 a.m., they saw a figure off in the distance. - When the rescue boat finally got to her, it was clear that the woman was exhausted, cold, and in slight shock. - They found her about 1 mile from where she’d fallen. The rescue team took her straight to the hospital. - In one of her interviews, she explained that she tried to stay calm and sang throughout the night to keep herself warm. She was also a pretty fit person, so she was able to keep herself afloat. - The Cruise Lines International Association says that this kind of thing happens only about once for every 1.3 million passengers. - The emergency crew members are getting together to find where the person fell. They throw life preservers overboard to make sure the individual has a flotation device while they wait for rescue. - If the crew knows about the incident from the get-go and the ship hasn’t covered much distance in that time, then they’ll release the lifeboats at once. - If nobody sees the person fall in and they only notice them missing later on, then the chances of successful rescue are not good - only about 10 to 15%. - If you fall from a considerable height, you risk fracturing bones when hitting the water. - The temperature of the water can be a deciding factor as well. When someone falls into cold waters, they automatically go into a Cold Shock Response. - When the water’s around 40°F, a person only has 60 minutes before their body just gets too cold. If it’s 50, that time doubles. - Modern cruise ships are the safest they’ve ever been, and they have plenty of ways to keep this from happening in the first place. - Fill your lungs with air and lie on your back with your arms and legs spread out. Move them slowly to stay afloat. This position also helps rescuers spot you more easily. - Being in the middle of an ocean, you’re prone to sunburn and heatstroke. So, keep your clothes on - they’ll protect you. - You’ll get thirsty, for sure. But the high concentration of salt in ocean water is toxic to humans. - The rescue team will start looking for you in the spot where you fell. Don’t leave that place! - Easier said than done, but you MUST conserve your energy. Panic does the opposite - it wears you out faster and clouds your thinking.

Why Taxis Are Often Yellow
Why Taxis Are Often Yellow
Månad sedan
What comes to your mind when you see the color yellow? One of your top 5 answers is “Taxi”, right? And even though not all taxis are yellow around the world, this color is strongly associated with the industry. But why is that? The first taxis in the U.S. weren’t yellow. In 1907, businessman Harry Allen bought red and green vehicles in France and transported them to New York. However, he had to face some competition, since a lot of other cab-companies popped up. And their owners painted the vehicles in different colors - black, brown, white, checkered - so that each company had a signature color.

SUMMARY: - In 1908, another businessman, Albert Rockwell, opened a taxi company in New York and decided to paint his cabs yellow just because it was his wife's favorite color. - But it was John Hertz from Chicago who, in 1915, chose this color for his fleet based on science. He wanted his cars to be painted the same color to unify his fleet and to be more attention-grabbing for clients. - In 1967, New York authorities issued restrictions on the color the licensed taxis could be. As you can guess, they chose yellow. - But taxis aren’t only yellow because this color draws attention. It's the optimal color for cabs since it increases their visibility to other drivers on the road, decreasing the chances for accidents. - New studies have shown that, the most easy-to-spot color for our vision is bright green. “Why are taxis still yellow?”, you’re probably wondering. - The thing is, using green has one big disadvantage: this color can blend easily with the surrounding trees and grass. - A Fiaker is a horse-drawn taxi that’s been transporting passengers since 1693, and is still used in the Austrian capital. - With so many canals and so few streets, people in Venice have no other way than to use gondolas and water taxis to get around the city. - Bicitaxi in Mexico City is a three-wheeled bike covered by a bright green plastic frame. There’s only room for a driver and two passengers in the rear seat. - If you ever plan to visit Spetses Island, there’s one thing you should keep in mind: cars are banned on this Greek island! - Cocotaxi is a tricycle that works with pedals and is surrounded by an opened plastic cover. Some of the cocotaxis are equipped with a tiny motor to help a driver when going uphill. - Extremely popular in Bangkok and other Thai cities, tuk-tuk is for those who don’t want to waste time in traffic jams, and those who are hesitant about using fast motorcycles. - The Victoria harbor in Canada added its own twist to public transport. Why chose a regular taxi if you can commute by water taxi and make your trip an exciting journey? - In a hurry to get to JFK or Newark Airports from Manhattan island? Then take a helicopter ride! The helicopter service Gotham Air launched in 2015, and allows its clients to save tons of time. - The Shikara taxi is a carved wooden boat that can take you around the lakes in the northern Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir. These boats are made of deodar, a special type of wood that doesn’t rot in water.

What If You Don't Give Your Baby a Name
What If You Don't Give Your Baby a Name
Månad sedan
The glorious day has finally come when you can take your new baby home! But you haven’t given the hospital a name for your new bundle of joy yet. How about Barnaby? Or Dumbledore? Or not. Or perhaps you want to understand your baby’s personality better before choosing a name. What’s the worst that could happen? Well, our name is one of the biggest parts of who we are. In some parts of the world, parents don’t choose a name for their baby: children are allowed to choose one for themselves when they’re old enough. Without a name, a child may have an undeveloped sense of self. Not having a name doesn’t just create practical issues; it could create emotional ones too.

A name and identity verification will need to be associated with their bank account. - A passport is another official form of identification that you first need a legal name to get. - Most hospitals will want you to name your baby within hours of delivery. There’s paperwork that the parents must fill out, which includes Baby’s new name. - In the U.S., once your kid turns 18, they’re allowed to exercise their right to vote. But they won’t be able to without a legal name! - The doctor’s office will have you fill out a bunch of paperwork-and they’ll want paperwork from the hospital, which would include Baby’s birth certificate. - To enroll them in pre-school or kindergarten, you’ll need a birth certificate; this is one of the most frequently requested documents for schools to verify your child’s identity. - Adding the name to the birth certificate once you’ve left the hospital can be an expensive and lengthy process. - Your baby needs a name in order to add him or her to your current policy, plus other info. - Calling a child by name and seeing whether they respond could help a parent spot potential early social and developmental issues.

The Quietest and Loudest Sounds in the World
The Quietest and Loudest Sounds in the World
Månad sedan
What's the quietest sound imaginable? Okay, nobody can answer this question cause the loudness (or quietness of this sound) is nearly immeasurable. It's the sound of air molecules moving around us. And they move all the time, vibrating, and therefore technically making a sound. But what about something a bit louder? The sound of the quietest room in the world is around -20dB, which means that it’s 20dB below the hearing threshold of our ears. This room isn’t just quiet; it’s basically swallowing any sound it encounters. This room is called the Microsoft chamber and is found in Redmond, Washington. Interested? Then how about a unique excursion into the world of sounds?

This room isn’t just quiet; it’s basically swallowing any sound it encounters. - What would be the quietest sound that we could actually hear? This is the sound of you calmly breathing, and your heart beating. At just 10 dB, we won’t ever notice it in our everyday life. - A change of 50 dB may seem drastic, but this level is a real comfort zone for our ears. Turn the volume up another 50 dB, and you’ll run from the source of the noise as fast as you can! - The key definition of a sound’s loudness is in its pitch and intensity. We’re naturally programmed to hear high pitched sounds as if they were louder than others. - We also don’t perceive intensity as it actually is. If you raise the intensity of any sound, it won’t make any difference to your ear until a certain point. - If the source of the sound is multiplied by 10, it’ll sound only twice as loud to our ears. They don’t detect minor changes in volume; this is the reason why it’s easier for us to measure sound in decibels, which is the same as 10 bels. - At 100 dB, the intensity won’t matter, whether it’s a trombone, an elephant trumpeting, or a helicopter -they’d all sound equally loud because we’re getting closer to our limit. - But there are a lot of sounds that lie in that dangerous territory that we can explore. For example, in the animal world, there’s no species louder than a sperm whale. - Another underwater animal that can literally stun with the sound it makes is the tiger-pistol-shrimp. Yep, from one of the biggest animals in the history of our planet to one of the smallest. - Still, there are even greater powers in our universe than this one. There was a sound detected that’s as powerful as 100 million supernova explosions. - Normally it’s quite hard to tell how loud objects in space are, because in the vacuum of cosmos, there might only be very thin gas that can’t transfer soundwaves.

What Would a Journey to the Quantum World Be Like
What Would a Journey to the Quantum World Be Like
Månad sedan
Did you know there are more living things on and inside your body alone than on the entire Earth? And the world is full of this micro-stuff! You can even see some bacteria with your own eyes. The largest bacterium in the world lives in the coastal waters of Namibia. Its length is 3/4 mm, and it’s larger than, say, a grain of sand or salt! More than half as small is a dust mite - these pests that bug you at night only grow to be around 1/3 mm. By the way, remember those amoebas from your biology classes? They’re the same size as dust mites. A single strand of human hair is just 1/10 mm thick. So wanna know more about how huge our planet really is? Then let’s look through the super-powerful microscope!

It’s called Megavirus, and it’s just 440 nanometers in size. - 200 nanometers is the size of another virus called bacteriophage. If you translate its name from Greek, you’ll find out that it feeds on bacteria. - Pushing harder, we go down to 3 nanometers, which is the width of a DNA strand. Don’t let its width fool you, though: the length of its strands is simply enormous. - Electrons haven’t been properly measured because they’re just too small for that. Anyway, though, the classical model of measurement says an electron is about 5 femtometers in size. - Protons and neutrons, the other two main parts of an atom, are 5 times smaller than electrons! - A quark is a particle that makes up protons and neutrons in an atom’s core. There are six types of them, and they all have different properties. - A strange quark is about half as small as the up and down quarks, yet it’s 50 times as heavy! - At 100 zeptometers, we see charm quarks. They’re even more massive than strange ones, but at least their existence is not questioned. - Next up are bottom quarks with the size of just 30 zeptometers. Not a lot can be said about these tiny guys: they have a negative charge and they quickly transform into other, bigger types of quarks. - And finally, the sixth type is top quarks. Their size is 100 yoctometers (yet another part per thousand added), and, against all logic, they’re the most massive of all quarks. - But even that’s not the end of it, and there are particles even smaller than top quarks. One of them is a neutrino, measuring about 1 yoctometer. - The string theory suggests lots of possibilities, and one of those is that a string is one-dimensional itself, but its vibrations take it to all the other dimensions. - And the second thing on this level is believed to be quantum foam. It exists according to another theory, and it makes up the whole space-time.

Why Planes Don't Fly Over Himalayas
Why Planes Don't Fly Over Himalayas
Månad sedan
Wouldn't it be amazing to see the tallest mountain on the planet from an airplane window? Just imagine yourself nestled in your seat, sipping on a coffee and admiring that snow covered mountain peak! The only problem is that planes don’t fly over Mount Everest, or the Himalayan range, for that matter. But why? Let's imagine a scheduled commercial flight that decides to fly over the Himalayas. At first, the flight is going smoothly: the plane reaches its usual cruising altitude of 35,000 feet and is traveling at a speed of about 550 miles per hour. Soon, the pilots see a range of tall mountains straight ahead, with one peak standing out among the rest. It's the world-famous Everest - the highest mountain above sea level on the whole planet! The pilots realize they shouldn't have been so careless! Because that's when everything goes awry!

It usually lasts for no more than 15 to 20 minutes. The pilots must make the plane drop down to 10,000 feet, where the passengers will be able to breathe without using oxygen masks. But... the plane is still flying over the Himalayas, and there’s no way it could drop so low! - One of the reasons planes have such an impressive cruising altitude is that it lets pilots have some "room for error." It means that if something goes wrong, the captain can glide the aircraft while trying to fix the problem. - Kathmandu can deal with a jet, but this airport has only one runway and doesn't have an instrumental landing system. - Winds moving over mountain ranges at high speeds create so-called "mountain waves" which can turn any ride into a rough one. - The turbulence there is so bad that it's almost impossible for commercial airplanes to fly over that region. - The Lukla Airport in Nepal is one of the world's trickiest. Pilots find it extremely difficult to land there because the airport is nestled between high mountains. - In Toncontin Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, planes must make a lightning-fast 45-degree bank turn during the descent. - - There are only 8 pilots in the world who are qualified to land at Paro Airport in Bhutan, Himalayan Mountains. - Landing at the airport on the Portuguese island, Madeira, remains one of the most treacherous feats in aviation, even after its runway was renovated. The thing is that the landing strip of this airport is located right on the shore of the ocean, between steep cliffs. - The runway of Narsarsuaq Airport, in Greenland, is constantly covered with ice. - There is one feature that sets Gibraltar International Airport apart and makes it totally unique: the main street of that area, Winston Churchill Avenue, intersects the runway! - If you ever go to St. Maarten Island in the Caribbean, you're likely to be completely smitten with its Princess Juliana Airport. It's one of the most famous airports in the world, thanks to a public beach located right before the runway!

Why Trains Blow Their Horns So Much
Why Trains Blow Their Horns So Much
Månad sedan
Have you ever thought why trains blow their horns so often and so loudly? The truth is that they have to. And the main reason for that is safety. Locomotive engineers are required to honk every now and then, which is written down in the regulations called the "Final Rule on the Use of Locomotive Horns." So, as you can see from the name, all this honking business is pretty strict and obliges trains to make four blasts approximately 20 seconds before they reach a crossing. But that's not all! Trains whistles and horns are an effective method of communication! There is a whole system of locomotive horn signals, where different sound combinations mean totally different things! Other videos you might like: Why Planes Don't Fly Over the Pacific Ocean sezone.info/view/MDBBVDVoX3NPUU0.html& A Train Lost in a Tunnel in Italy, No One Can Find It sezone.info/view/ZDRtM0h2VEZHOVk.html& 14 Roads You Would Never Want to Drive On sezone.info/view/dXE3bXp0VzFrblU.html TIMESTAMPS: A number of short whistles 1:10 One long whistle-like sound 1:26 Three short whistles 1:50 The signal you probably hear more often than others 2:20 Where train engineers aren't allowed to honk 3:38 Why trains can't just stop 4:07 Why trains have problems with going uphill 5:24 #trains #railroad #brightside SUMMARY: - If you hear a number of short whistles, it means that the engineer is trying to attract attention to the moving train. - One long whistle-like sound can be heard when the train is coming to a halt, and the engineer applies the air brakes. - Two long honks mean that the train has released the brakes and is ready to continue its journey. - Three short whistles made by an unmoving train mean that the locomotive is about to move backward. - One long whistle followed by a short one means that the train is nearing some equipment or people working on or near the track. - The signal you probably hear more often than others is two long whistles followed by one short and another long whistle. Trains have to honk this way every time they approach a grade crossing, which is a place where a railroad track and a road or two railroad tracks cross at the same level. - Florida once tried to ban locomotive horns. However, peace and quiet didn't last long. After the number of accidents at grade crossings had almost doubled, the ban was lifted. - Any heavy object moving at high speed can actually stop pretty fast. - The friction between the two is twice lower than the friction between a car's rubber tires and a road covered with asphalt. - But besides being not very good at braking, trains also have big problems with going uphill! - We, humans, can deal with super-steep inclines of around 80 degrees! But for high-speed trains, the maximum incline they can climb is only 2.5 to 4 degrees, while freight trains can't make it if the incline is more than 1.5 degrees. - And still, some trains manage to climb not very steep hills with the help of several locomotives pulling them. - After helping the struggling train to travel up, helper locomotives return back to the bottom of the hill to wait for the next train that needs assistance. - On the other hand, any unfavorable conditions, such as rain, snow, or fallen leaves on the track, can prevent a train from going up a steep hill, even with the help of additional engines!

Why Buses Don't Have Seatbelts
Why Buses Don't Have Seatbelts
Månad sedan
Fastening your seatbelt while in a car is something you learn even without knowing the rest of the road traffic regulations. But have you ever wondered why buses don’t have seatbelts at all? It seems only natural that a vehicle that carries so much more people than a car should have seatbelts, but buses have none - not even school buses. And how can they be safer than cars then? Speaking about safety, have you ever thought why buses stop and open their doors at railroad tracks? It’s actually a must for any vehicle to stop at a designated point before railroad tracks and check if there’s a train coming. For a bus driver, it’s also important to open the doors. But why? Well, let’s find out the answers to these questions and more! Other videos you might like: Why Airplanes Are White sezone.info/view/S2NoUmRpVHpEejA.html& How to Choose a Safe Seat in 7 Types of Transport sezone.info/view/cUY0YlJVTmJlTG8.html& Why Planes Don't Fly Over the Pacific Ocean sezone.info/view/MDBBVDVoX3NPUU0.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why don’t buses have seatbelts? 0:21 Why are there dedicated bus lanes? 1:08 Why won’t buses stop and open the doors when someone’s late? 1:45 Why is there a “do not speak to the driver” sign? 2:15 How do bus doors open and close when the driver isn’t inside? 2:54 Why are buses considered safer than cars? 3:31 Why do buses stop and open their doors at railroad tracks? 4:29 Why are bus depots often located in rough neighborhoods? 5:00 How do displays in buses know when to show the next stop? 5:40 How do you see through a bus window from inside when there’s an ad on the outside? 6:24 Why are bus steering wheels almost parallel to the ground? 7:26 Why don’t buses have a more aerodynamic shape? 8:11 #buses #safety #brightside SUMMARY: - In case of emergency, passengers need to get off a bus as fast as possible. With seatbelts on, they’ll waste precious time on unbuckling them. - Like any other public transport, buses have a schedule to meet, and in big cities, traffic jams aren’t rare. So to reduce delays caused by heavy traffic, dedicated bus lanes were introduced. - When a bus has already closed its doors and moved a few feet away from the stop, halting it again creates difficulties for the rest of the vehicles on the road. - There’s a mechanism that opens and closes the driver’s door from the outside. The button that activates it is usually hidden and located under the door. - Buses are heavy, and it takes a really serious impact to stop them in their tracks. They’re also long, so even if a bus crashes into a brick wall, passengers will fall, but no one will probably get seriously hurt. - Public transport depots need a lot of land, and land in big cities is costly. So when a transport company buys a turf to park its vehicles, it normally chooses a piece of land that’s relatively cheap. - When a bus approaches its next stop, the GPS sends a signal to the display, and it changes the name of the stop. - The steering wheel is connected directly to the wheels of the vehicle with a rod. In a car, the front wheels are further ahead of the driver, so the rod goes smoothly back and up to the steering wheel. - Aerodynamics allows vehicles to move faster with less opposing force of the air. It’s fine with transport that’s made to be fast, but buses aren’t about speed; they’re more about safety.

What If You Didn't Eat for Just a Day
What If You Didn't Eat for Just a Day
Månad sedan
Feeling tired and weak? Perhaps you were buried in your workload and didn’t notice the time. You look at the clock and what?!? It’s 4 hours passed your lunchtime! And you remember that you haven’t eaten anything since last night because you were too tired to make anything and just went to bed. You make the excuse to yourself that you’re on a diet anyway, and this is a good way to accelerate it. Stop right there. The reality is, it’s a big NO! Intermittent fasting, low carbohydrates, water therapy, and keto: these are just to name a few of the most trendy diet plans right now. Apart from a million ways to go about it, there are a lot of reasons why a person would restrict their eating habits. The most common ones would be to look good and feel good. For whatever the reason, deciding to suddenly starve yourself will never be worth it. Even just for a day. And here’s why.

It starts with the saliva in your mouth, which helps with chewing and swallowing. It’ll then pass through your throat and esophagus. Next, it’ll end up in your stomach. - After that, it’ll go to the small intestine. Here’s where our pancreas, liver and gallbladder will be put in action too. - Our colon is a 5 to 6 foot-long tube of muscles where water is absorbed, and waste and leftover food will be stored after being digested until the time that it exits our body through the rectum in the form of stool. - Once your stomach becomes empty, it releases a hormone called ghrelin. This is the hormone that tells your body that you’re hungry and that you need to eat. - Another hormone, which is equally important to keep in mind, is leptin. This one is the total opposite of the first. - Having low blood sugar will make you feel dizzy and light headed, while having a high level of blood sugar may cause you to have headaches, blurry eyesight, or to feel fatigued. - Your body is desperately trying to use every bit of resources that you have left and turn them into energy, just so you can carry on with your activities. This is the reason why you lose some weight when you don’t eat. - If your body is in starvation mode and starts feasting on muscles, you can definitely expect a little difficulty in moving. - No doubt, there are some cases where a person can go on without eating for 3 to 4 days, but take note that this wasn’t accomplished overnight. - If you decide you really want to try fasting for an entire day, don’t just act on an impulse and try it all of a sudden - Jumping into a long-term fast can make you feel weak, tired, grumpy and irritated.

Always Fly with a Tennis Ball in Your Carry-On
Always Fly with a Tennis Ball in Your Carry-On
Månad sedan
Whether you’re getting around by car, train, or plane, traveling can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, even if you love it. Your flight can get delayed by a lot. Sitting in close quarters for a long flight can slow blood circulation and cause the muscles to cramp. Your ears can pop during take-off and landing. So pay attention to some tips that will make your next trip a breeze! For example, make sure you have an empty water bottle in your carry-on. That way, you can get past security with no problem and then just fill the bottle up at the airport. Most have drinking fountains, so you’ll save some cash!

Roll it along your ankles, calves, legs, wrists, back, and shoulders. - Chewing on some gum actually keeps your ears from popping during take-off and landing. - A trash bag or two will be a lifesaver when you come out of the airport at your destination only to be met by…rain! - The dryer sheets will keep your garments smelling fresh and clean like they’ve come straight from the laundry. - If your luggage is marked as “Fragile,” it should be handled more carefully by baggage personnel. Plus, it’ll likely be put on top of the other bags. - Grab a binder clip and clamp it onto the blades of your razor when you pack. This will save you from any accidental-and painful-injuries. - You don’t need to go out and buy expensive and flashy luggage. Use a plain basic suitcase and tie a bright ribbon around one of the handles. - When you’re packing, wrap your shoes up in shower caps. This will prevent the bottoms from dirtying the rest of your clothes. - Whether you’re flying or driving, keep all your chargers and power cords in a good-sized sunglasses case. - You know those pill containers with little boxes for each day of the week? They’re also a great way to store and organize your jewelry when you’re traveling. - Keep your shirt collars nice and crisp by lining them with a belt. - Most airlines provide a pillow and blanket so that passengers can get a nap in during the flight. Take that little pillow and put it behind your lower back. - If you’re going to be switching time zones, start making changes to your sleep pattern the day before you leave. - The air inside airplane cabins tends to be very dry. Drink plenty of water, or another drink that contains electrolytes, to prevent dehydration.

Why Astronauts Wear Orange and White
Why Astronauts Wear Orange and White
Månad sedan
The bright orange color astronauts wear to go out for launch is called International Orange, and it’s the same shade as the paint that coats Tokyo Tower in Japan, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. However, once astronauts are in space, they swap orange for snow-white wear. So what gives with the different colors? Well, there are actually two main types of spacesuits. The first one is the Advanced Crew Escape Suit, aka the "orange suit," aka the "pumpkin suit." Astronauts wear this full-pressure suit during "lift-off". These spacesuits are crucial for those who are heading for super high altitudes. But still, why this color? And what about the white, bulky spacesuits? What's their purpose?

SUMMARY: - The orange suit is equipped with different stuff that can help an astronaut to survive if something goes wrong during the launch or landing of the spaceship. - Astronauts wear EVA suits when they go on a spacewalk! Such an outfit can protect them from the unfriendly conditions of outer space, what with its extreme temperatures and near-vacuum! - In case the tether tears, the EVA suit has a backup system. This system includes small jet thrusters which can be controlled from the station with the help of a joystick. - Months after coming back from long missions in space, astronauts still tend to let go of things while they’re still in mid-air. - There was an astronaut who’d been waiting for a whopping 19 years before he finally flew to space. - All American astronauts have to learn Russian to be able to run the International Space Station using Russian-language manuals, if there’s no alternative. - During space adaptation, 50% to 75% of astronauts have highly unpleasant syndromes, such as vertigo, headaches, nausea, and overall tiredness. - When astronauts are in space, they often see random flashes of light - and it's not hallucinations! - Before going to space, astronauts have underwater training, which is supposed to simulate zero gravity. - According to NASA, they accept only 8 applicants out of 6,000! On top of that, the selection process takes around 18 months! - If an astronaut cries in space, tears don't flow down their face. Instead, they gather into thick blobs of liquid around their eyes because the water surface tension holds tears together. - Astronauts who forget to attach themselves to something when they sleep can easily float away and bump into a hard surface. - Astronauts see a sunrise and a sunset every 45 minutes, which totals 15-16 sunsets and sunrises each day.

Why Police Cars Are Often Black and White
Why Police Cars Are Often Black and White
Månad sedan
When you hear a police siren blaring around the corner, you’re already expecting to see a sedan painted in certain colors rushing past you. But have you ever wondered why exactly police cars are painted in colors they use? In fact, there are plenty of reasons for that in any given country. Let’s take the USA and Canada for example. When first North American police cars appeared in the early 1900s, pretty much all automobiles were painted black, and law enforcers weren’t any exception. Later, most authorities across the US thought it prudent to make police cars easily recognizable to the public. And so they worked out a color palette that would be both symbolic and affordable for the budget.

FLORIDA. MIAMI BEACH. APRIL - 14, 2017: POLICE CAR: By SergeevDen/Shutterstock.com, www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/usa-florida-miami-beach-april-14-621090572 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - A monochrome design proved to be very efficient: people would instantly recognize a police car as such, and it was also not hard to give it another paint job in case it was given to a detective or an undercover officer. - With the appearance of vinyl decals, however, it became increasingly easy to paint a car in whatever colors you wanted. - Originally, most police cars in Europe and the UK were white with distinct markings on them in either black, blue, or red. - But then, in the 1990s, the revolution came: the Battenburg markings. Developed in the UK, this distinct pattern became a standard for the British, Australian, and many of the European police cars. - The markings look like alternating squares of two different colors - kinda like a chess board. - The reason for such a radical redesign is simple enough: making the emergency services highly visible. - Only the emergency services are allowed to bear them, which makes these vehicles immediately recognizable even in the heavy traffic. - In the Czech Republic, for example, most police vehicles have striped decals running along the bottom of the side of the car. - When light-reflecting stripes are put lower on the body of a car, they always get enough light to be seen for what they are. - But probably the most visible police cars ever reside in Dubai. The police force in that wealthy city has perhaps the most expensive set of vehicles in the world. - Dubai creates a picture of the richest and most luxurious city in the world, and having their police officers drive around in Lamborghinis and Ferraris does a lot to add to this image. - Police vehicles are generally more powerful than those available to the public. All around the world, governments place special orders for their police cars. - There’s one thing the police have that makes almost every car chase a success: communication. And that’s the only real advantage of the police cars.

Why Pilots Turn Off the Lights During Landing
Why Pilots Turn Off the Lights During Landing
Månad sedan
Do you wonder why flight attendants always give us the same instructions before take-off and landing? Some of them sound strange and seem to have no logic. Like, why do we need to open window shades or sit in darkness for flights at night? Pilots have their own window to look through, and they can’t even see if it’s dark or not in the passenger cabin. What gives? Take-off and landing are the most dangerous moments of the whole flight. Airplanes seldom crash in the air; the pilots can easily control the aircraft at a high altitude, or even in a turbulence zone. Most crashes actually occur when the plane is rising above the airport, or is touching back down on the runway. So all the instructions we follow have a good explanation. And that’s for our own security. Let’s see how it works.

When the light around us rapidly changes from very bright to dark, it takes some time for us to get used to it. - The crew dims the light in the cabin on a nighttime flight so that the passengers’ eyes get used to the outside darkness. - Your eyes won’t need time to adjust to see the little floor lights that guide you to the exits. That’s why using your gadgets with a bright screen is also not allowed. - If everyone had gotten used to low light conditions before the accident happened, you'd see about 1,000 times better, compared to if you were suddenly plunged into the darkness. - Passengers should stay in their seats with seat belts fastened, the back of their seats in a vertical position, and tray tables locked. - In case of an emergency, this position is also safer for you and the passenger behind you, since the risk of trauma to the head and neck is much lower this way. - Pilots say that passengers are curious; they're perfect for an extra set of eyes to see if something goes wrong out there. Usually passengers report stuff right away. - Plastic shades can also cause different injuries: in the case of a crash landing, the plastic can break into sharp pieces, which can cut your face, hands or other body parts. - The root of this instruction is in the past, when the navigational system wasn’t protected well enough from interference. - Most researches show that switched on electronic devices don’t influence modern navigation. So, in 2014, this rule was officially called off. - Some airlines still stick to it, though, mainly out of habit. It’s just a question of time before it’s no longer used anywhere.

What to Do When You See a Suspicious Stranger
What to Do When You See a Suspicious Stranger
Månad sedan
Say you’re walking home after having dinner with friends. It’s dark, but you don’t live too far away from the restaurant. Soon, though, you get that creepy feeling that someone is watching you. You see a dark figure walking toward you from an alley. What should you do? First of all, stay calm. It’ll be hard, but don’t let the stranger know that you’ve caught on to them or that you’re nervous. Second of all, stay aware of the stranger and your surroundings but do something that will let you collect your thoughts. And, of course, guys you should definitely know when and how to use your phone! Other videos you might like: 10 Tips to Survive a Kidnapping According to the Police sezone.info/view/MTdOekw2a2tIVVk.html& How to Avoid an Attack If You're Being Followed or Watched sezone.info/view/bEhJcUJxQnQ0aUU.html& 14 Self-Defense Tips That Might Save Your Life sezone.info/view/bHYxVXQ5WHFWeWc.html TIMESTAMPS: Stay Calm 0:22 Pay Attention 0:46 Look like you’re walking with a purpose 1:11 Don’t Text! ❌ 1:44 Don’t keep looking over your shoulder 2:20 Be Prepared to Fight 👊 2:40 Know when and how to use your phone 3:10 Get to a public place 3:37 Take different routes 4:08 Never hesitate to call the police 4:34 ❗️ Basic safety measures ❗️ 5:17 #safety #survivaltips #brightside SUMMARY: - If you can get a good look at the stranger, get enough details that you can commit to memory in case you have to give someone, or the police, a description later. - Even if your nerves overcome you and you take a couple of wrong turns, try not to look lost. - If you’re texting, your head is down, and you may not even see a suspicious stranger that’s there in the first place. - It would be tempting, but if you keep glancing behind you, it will let the stranger know that you’re onto them, and this may cause them to attack. - If the stranger decides to come at you, you’ll need to defend yourself. One option is to hold your keys in your pocket with the end of one key’s “teeth” sticking out between your middle and ring finger. - If you’re walking home and know you’re being followed by a shady character, take out your phone and call a friend or family member. - Get to a coffee shop, restaurant, or a store as soon as you can. If it’s late at night, don’t worry-there are some grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations that are open 24 hours a day. - If you feel like the same shady stranger is making a, um, habit of following you, try taking alternate routes to and from places. This goes for driving and if you’re on foot. - If the stranger is just too close for comfort, or especially if you’re being repeatedly followed like I mentioned earlier, call whatever the emergency number is where you live. - If you’re walking home, try to take the most public, well-lit route that you can. - If you’re driving, park under a street light or the most well-lit part of the parking lot. - Even if home, or the next destination, is a short distance away, don’t make the walk by yourself. Ask a friend, or group of friends, to walk with you, especially after dark. - If a stranger stops you on the street and asks for directions, money, or wants to sell you something, be wary. Keep a good distance between the two of you. - Especially after dark, you don’t want to be standing at your car door fumbling for your keys. This could make you an easy target. - A good pop to the throat or solar plexus-that place right under the center of the rib cage-will knock the wind out of someone. The nose and eyes are the most sensitive parts of the face.

A Man Who Fell from Space to Earth
A Man Who Fell from Space to Earth
Månad sedan
We already know about aircraft that travel at supersonic speeds. That’s mind-boggling on its own. But what about a human doing the same? You know, without the plane! One man flew faster than the speed of sound while freefalling 120,000 feet from space. Was it Superman? Well, close but not exactly. Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian Skydiver and a bit of a daredevil. Ever since he was little, he loved heights, and his life-long dream was to become a skydiver. He began working on his goal at the age of 16. His achievements started getting more and more thrilling. He was the first person in the whole world to Cross the English Channel with a pair of carbon wings, and the first person to fly next to an airplane.

The Austrian daredevil became the first man to break the sound barrier in a record-shattering freefall jump from the edge of space, organizers said. The 43-year-old leapt from a capsule more than 24 miles (39 kilometers) above the Earth, reaching a speed of 706 miles per hour (1,135 km/h) before opening his red and white parachute and floating down to the New Mexico desert: By AFP PHOTO/ www.redbullcontentpool.com/ Jay Nemeth/EAST NEWS, www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/19975264/i/51/t/89 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - By 1988, Felix started doing skydiving exhibitions for the well-known company. Even though his job as a skydiver was filled with adrenaline and excitement, it got tiring for Felix at some point. - In 1999, he achieved his first record for the lowest BASE jump. He leaped from the Hand of the “Christ the Redeemer” statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. - Felix transformed from a regular sky-diver into a daredevil. He would parachute from different fixed objects all the way down to the ground. - His most mind-boggling achievement came with the Red Bull Stratos Project on October 14th, 2012. When Felix was 43 years old, he made his life-long dream come to life. - Back in the day, there was another legendary man named Joseph Kittinger. He was an Air Force Command Pilot, and in the 1960s he performed the highest dive in history. - The speed of sound is calculated by a Mach Number. When something approaches the speed of sound, they get close to the Mach number 1. - Baumgartner’s team put together an advanced capsule that would operate as Felix’s controlled climate during his ascent to 120,000ft. - His suit was specifically coated to keep his body protected. Since the whole mission was going to be recorded, he was equipped with cameras on both his legs and his helmet. - After extensive training, the record-breaking day had arrived. It was October 14th, 2012. - Baumgartner climbed to 128,100 feet with the high-tech balloon. The sliding doors of the capsule opened, and his most thrilling and terrifying experience began. - As he was falling, his speed was accelerating, and so was his heartrate. He could see the earth’s curve. He was both amazed and terrified. - The moment he reached his maximum velocity, he slowed down. He was in a free fall for 4 minutes and 20 seconds before deploying his parachute at 8,200 ft. - His mission was a success, despite the minor difficulties. His excitement for the supersonic fall that broke all the records was indescribable.

Why School Buses Are Yellow
Why School Buses Are Yellow
Månad sedan
Consider the school bus. It could be painted literally any color: pink, bright green, orange, or even zebra-print. So, why pick yellow? Is it because it’s a cheerful hue that makes kids happy to go to school? See the kid’s faces? The main reason for picking yellow paint for school buses is... safety! If you look at the color closely, you'll notice that instead of being pure yellow, it's a totally different shade! It's a curious mixture of lemon-yellow and orange. But what about the scientifically proved fact that red is the one with the maximum wavelength? It doesn't get scattered easily, and that's why you can clearly see it from afar! On top of that, most people associate this color with caution. So, why not paint school buses red? Other videos you might like: Why Airplanes Are White sezone.info/view/S2NoUmRpVHpEejA.html& School Lunches You've Probably Never Heard About sezone.info/view/LTdZQlRYN3ZuVmM.html& How to Choose a Safe Seat in 7 Types of Transport sezone.info/view/cUY0YlJVTmJlTG8.html& TIMESTAMPS: Why are they not red? 1:19 But it wasn't always like this! 2:29 National School Bus Chrome 3:04 Why aren't school buses equipped with seat belts? 3:48 Chains under school buses 6:16 Why some of the buses have black hoods 7:19 #schoolbus #yellowbus #brightside SUMMARY: - Despite all the scientific stuff, it’s not red, but yellow, which is the color that instantly grabs your attention in daily life. - Depending on the season, it's often still dark outside at this time. That's why it makes sense to use yellow paint, which will make buses more noticeable on the road. - Scientists state that you're 1.24 times more likely to spot a yellow object with your peripheral vision than the same object painted red! - But it wasn't always like this! The "National School Bus Glossy Yellow" color didn’t appear until 1939; before that, school buses were painted all kinds of colors. - Seat belts simply won't make school buses safer! The thing is that traveling on a school bus is a 40 times safer than going somewhere by car. - The seats on a school bus are situated close to each other, and they have high padded backs. As a result, if an accident does happen, and a student gets propelled forward, they’ll only move a short distance. - Adding seat belts would increase the cost of each bus by $8,000 to $15,000! Plus, buses would have fewer seats because seat belts would take additional space. - If a school bus weighs more than 10,000 pounds, it's up to the states to decide whether the vehicles need to be equipped with seat belts or not. - The chains help school buses get traction on icy roads. If the driver realizes that they can't cope without some additional help, they can just press a button on the dashboard. - When the sun is too bright, the glossy, bright yellow paint covering the hood of the bus starts to give off too much glare. As a result, it makes it hard for the driver to see their surroundings, and distracts them from the situation on the road. - And while some states make school bus manufacturers equip vehicles with black hoods, others forbid it. In this case, they get covered with an anti-glare substance.

You Make The Same Mistakes While Checking Your Weight
You Make The Same Mistakes While Checking Your Weight
Månad sedan
If you've tried to lose weight, you know about that scale addiction. How discouraging it was when the numbers didn’t move or, even worse, when they grew! Yow! But it might not be you, it might be the scale! (Or the way you weigh yourself, while you’re eating whey.) Do you know, for example, why you shouldn't weigh yourself on Mondays, after a shower, and a workout? Or that your scale can show you the wrong numbers simply because it stands on the wrong surface? Or why you have to calibrate a digital scale every morning? Interested? So here are 18 mistakes you might be making while weighing yourself. Other videos you might like: 3 Ways to Lose Weight Without Dieting sezone.info/view/UlY2WUFXZW5XcFU.html 7 Ways to Look Taller and Slimmer sezone.info/view/bFJWWXFNMU02ZEU.html 6-Minute Workout to Slim Down Your Legs In 5 Days sezone.info/view/RUo5ekxrU1V5T28.html TIMESTAMPS: Not Taking the Weather Into Account 0:29 Weighing Yourself On Mondays 0:57 Weighing Yourself After a Shower 1:28 Weighing Yourself At Night 2:08 Weighing Yourself After a Workout 2:33 Eating a Lot Of Sodium Before Weighing Yourself 3:15 Weighing Yourself Every Day 3:50 Not Weighing Yourself Often Enough 4:42 Using Different Scales 5:01 Putting the Scale In the Wrong Place 5:19 Using a Digital Scale 5:42 Being Too Emotionally Invested 6:05 Weighing Yourself At Different Times 6:35 Weighing Yourself With Your Clothes On 7:04 Not Listening To Your Body 7:38 Not Taking Body Composition Into Account 8:02 Using a Scale That Doesn't Calculate All the Stats 8:45 Using an Inaccurate Scale 9:09 #weightloss #slimfit #brightside SUMMARY: - Digital scales tend to show bigger numbers (like up to 3.5 lbs more) not only when it's cold, but also when the humidity is high. - Instead of hopping on the scale on Monday, try Friday morning - that's when your weight will reflect all the healthy lifestyle efforts you made throughout the week! - The largest organ in your body is your skin, and it also happens to absorb liquids really well. This means that after swimming or taking a shower, your body has absorbed 1 to 3 cups of water. - By the evening, you've already eaten at least three meals, and drank a ton of water. So, keep in mind that your weight can fluctuate by a few pounds during the day, and weigh yourself in the morning - that's when you’ll get the most accurate results. - If you eat a lot of foods rich in sodium, your body starts to retain more fluid than usual. As a result, you're more likely to see bigger numbers on the scale in the morning if you snacked on salty foods the night before. - Your weight can change from day to day by as much as 5 lbs - and that's perfectly normal! It depends on how much liquid you've retained or what foods you've been eating. - On the other hand, checking your weight only once a month isn't a good idea either. This way, you won't be able to figure out your weekly average, and understand which factors influence your weight fluctuations. - Different scales are bound to give you conflicting results. And the difference can be up to 10 lbs, which is pretty discouraging, isn't it? - Carpets, bathroom tiles, and wooden floors can cause the scale to get uncalibrated. - If what you see on the scale upsets you a bit too much for your liking, it's time to revise your approach. Remind yourself that these readings are temporary, and you shouldn't judge your entire weight-loss progress based solely on these numbers. - It's one of the biggest mistakes you can make while checking your weight. The thing is that few people who weigh themselves at home know how to adjust for their clothing. - Even if your scale shows that you've gained a couple of pounds, but you feel lighter, and your clothes have become looser, ignore the scale readings. - Try to get a scale that shows different measurements: weight, body fat percentage, body water percentage, bone mass density, and BMI (which stands for "body mass index"). - A lot of people, in an attempt to save money, buy the cheapest scale they can find. Unfortunately, these scales tend to give you incorrect readings.

*Gravity can be thought of as a side effect of matter, because any object that has mass generates a gravitational field. If two or more objects are present, then a gravitational force arises between the bodies. This force is always attractive, so objects are always drawn together by gravity. That's why stars also falls.* 😅😅
