Most European doctors support the use of breathing exercises for weight loss and explain their effectiveness as follows: fat consists of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. When the oxygen you breathe in reaches the fat cells, it splits them into carbon and water. THE INSTRUCTION: • First, stand up, and push one leg forward and the other back. • Now strain your buttocks and transfer your weight to your back foot. Yes, just like this. • Slowly start inhaling for 3 seconds, lifting your arms above your head. • Then exhale forcefully for 7 seconds, straining all your body muscles. Perform this exercise every day for 2 to10 minutes.

How Good Are Your Eyes? Cool and Quick Test
 
08:12
How good is your eyesight? Here’s a simple eyesight test that will show how sharp your eyes are. We all know that “eyes are the windows to the soul.” Do your windows need cleaning, or are they crystal clear and give a sharp picture of the world? Take this test to find it out! There will be 4 stages, and it will get harder and harder with every stage. The first one might seem like a piece of cake (and if you’re actually seeing a piece of cake we’ve got problems), but the further we go, the more concentration it will require. In fact, only 8 % of people can pass stage 4 because it is so hard. You will have the same task for every question in all the stages. The task is to pick 1 out of 10 colors which is different from the rest. To pass each of the stages, you have to find that odd one out in each task. If you fail once, you fail the entire stage. #vision #eyetest TIMESTAMPS Stage 1 Easy 1:11 Stage 2 Normal 2:23 Stage 3 Hard 3:53 Stage 4 Very Hard 5:29 Results 7:06 SUMMARY Congratulations to all superhumans out there who made it. Your eyesight is fantastic! 92% of people failed at this task, and you managed to rock it! There is a chance you are a tetrachromat. This smart word is used to define people who have more receptors in their eyes than others and can see more shades of different colors. Did you manage to make it through all 4 stages? If you failed, at what stage did it happen? Let’s discuss it in the comments section!

It was getting even darker and colder, and I was really hungry. - Some of the humans just gave me a weird look and walked around me, others tried to pet me – I felt so scared and overwhelmed by the whole thing that I ran and hid in the first alley I could find! - To be honest, that was the most awful feeling in the world, and these two knew exactly how I felt. How could people we loved so much betray us like that? - Me, Rocky, and Oscar became best friends. Every morning every single one of us went in different directions to find something good like food or something to keep us warm at night. - One of our favorite spots to check for food was outside this little diner. Jenny and Michael sometimes went to places like that. One day a human lady noticed me waiting in the corner as she was throwing out some food. - I kept going back to that diner, and I found out that this lady was named Alison and she was a cook there. - One day, she looked at me and asked “Listen, buddy. Would you like to come live with me? You look like you really need a home.” - Alison and I live in the same neighborhood as the alley I spent my nights in, so I sometimes see my old buddies, Rocky and Oscar. Unfortunately, they’re still out on the streets because they haven't met their Alison yet.

7 Air Travel Tips to Know Before Your Flight
 
03:28
Many people who travel by airplanes don’t know about all of their peculiarities. These 7 amazing and simple tips will make you feel better and more comfortable during your flight. TIMESTAMPS The seats by the window are colder 0:21 Avoid drinking coffee or tea 0:49 Tables and seat pockets are the dirtiest places on the plane 1:12 Morning is the best time for a flight 1:44 The service is better in the final rows 2:06 Don’t inflate your neck cushion to full volume 2:33 Always go with a special menu 2:49 SUMMARY - The temperature outside the cabin can fall to as low as −140°F to −149°С, which cools down the temperature of the plane’s fuselage. You can feel this external cold above all in the seats by the windows, especially during summer when you wear light clothing. - Keep in mind: the drinking water used to prepare hot beverages onboard can contain malignant bacteria such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Specialists who have tested the water on various airlines have reached this conclusion on more than one occasion. - Pockets on the seat back in front of you are sometimes full of trash accumulated during flights. Yep, they aren’t cleaned as thoroughly as you would expect. When it comes to the tray tables, it’s even worse! - Later flights are usually delayed because of the ‘ripple’ effects of delays throughout the day. Moreover, if you have a fear of flying, specialists claim that a degree of turbulence is reduced in the morning. - If you sit in the first rows, you will be the first to leave the plane at the end of the flight as well as get a choice of meal. On the other hand, if you pick a seat closer to the back of the cabin, you’ll more attentive service from the cabin crew! - When you take a blow-up pillow onto the plane, don’t forget about the laws of physics! If you fill it with air completely, it might burst due to the changes in pressure in the cabin! - Airlines offer a choice of different in-flight meals such as vegetarian, seafood, halal, kosher, and many others. Even if you have no particular preference, many travelers recommend going for one of the specialist meal choices. Do you have a lot of friends who travel often?

10 Simple Tricks to Manipulate People's Mind
 
09:21
The development of psychology allowed scientists to study the biological processes in the human brain, emotions, behavior, and reactions. This information gives us an understanding of our own actions. It also makes it easier for people to control others. Do you ever wish that you could make people agree with you, like you, or remember you with a snap of your fingers? Believe it or not, it's actually possible — you just have to know a couple of tricks. They work on a subconscious level and help you win another person’s trust or get somebody’s approval. Bright Side will share 10 tips that work every time and can be useful in any situation. TIMESTAMPS: Mirror your opponent's body language to make them trust you 0:37 Use the word “because” to have it your way 1:27 Pause to give your words a bigger effect 2:45 Stay silent to find out more 4:02 Be the first or last one to make them remember you 4:40 Sit next to your opponent to receive less criticism 5:18 Ask someone for a favor to change their perception of you 5:57 Use contrasts to get what you want 6:57 Nod slightly to make someone agree with you 7:34 Draw a triangle with your eyes to stop the conversation 8:11 #psychologicaltricks #psychologicaltips Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - If you want someone to like and trust you, mirror their body language — especially their poses and gestures. The most important thing is to be smooth about it. - During a heated discussion, every opinion has to be heard, but only one will be chosen as the final one. If you want it to be yours, simply use the word “because” with your reasoning! - If you want them to remember what you said and really think about it, add a pause after the statement. This simple trick will help you put all the right emphases in your speech. - If you want to get everything out of another person, you shouldn't insist or be too demanding about it. Simply stay silent, and they'll tell you everything! - If you're doing an important interview, try to arrange things so that you’ll be the first or last person seen. - Let's say you know that your colleague or boss plans to lash out about your work skills at an upcoming meeting. How can you prevent a total disaster? Sit right next to them! - Ask someone for a favor to change their perception of you. This psychological trick is also known as the Benjamin Franklin effect. - One of the most popular psychological manipulation techniques is to ask for something way bigger than what you actually want. - To get the positive response you need, nod slightly while asking the question. Remember to maintain eye contact with your opponent! - Look your opponent in one eye, then in the other one, and then at their forehead. Keep “drawing” this triangle shape for the rest of the convo. They'll soon get the message on the subconscious level and say their goodbyes.

So maybe it was simply a natural instinct for a whale to shield a helpless woman from a large, dangerous shark! - A boy had to spend the night outside. When he woke up the next morning, he was really surprised to see 3 wild beavers sleeping against him! The temperature had dropped below zero, so if it wasn't for them, the young boy would most probably have frozen to death. - One woman developed a cramp in her leg and found that she couldn't swim! The beluga whale in the tank noticed that something was wrong and grabbed the woman's leg, leading her to the surface and therefore saving her life. - Back in 2005, a terrifying event happened to a 12-year-old Ethiopian girl. She was walking home from school when 4 men abducted her. The police started looking for the girl right away, but they had almost no leads for over a week. Finally, they found the girl safe and sound in the company of 3 adult lions! - A young woman in Ohio was leaving a party at about 1 a.m. and decided to walk home on foot. An unknown man who grabbed her and hit her! He was just about to drag her into a field when he suddenly saw a deer who’d been woken up by the sounds of the woman struggling. This scared the man away, and he fled the scene immediately. - In 2004, the southwest coast of southern Thailand was hit by a horrifying tsunami. Among the people who tried to flee from the tsunami was an 8-year-old girl. An elephant carried her to higher ground on its back and protected her from the approaching waves. - A boy fell into a gorilla enclosure and passed out from a severe head injury. Jambo, one of the gorillas, instantly made it clear that the boy was protected, staying with him until zoo employees and medical workers arrived. - A mountain lion attacked a man. The man did his best to protect himself when the bear he'd been watching before suddenly attacked the lion. These 2 had a serious battle for some time until the lion fled as fast as it could. - In 1974, a 62-year-old woman found herself in a life-or-death situation when the ship she was on was wrecked. Nonetheless, she made it home alive — thanks to a giant sea turtle who came to her rescue!

A Japanese Technique to Overcome Laziness
 
04:25
Almost all of us periodically sets ourselves a new goal or challenge — and just as often in the end fails to achieve them. We end up telling ourselves that we’re just not ready yet, that we’ll do it next week, next month...next year. We might even pursue them with zeal at the start. But once we’ve made a small amount of effort, we’ll tell ourselves we’ve done enough, and it’s time to take this whole ‘starting a new life’ thing more slowly. Why does it always turn out like this? The answer’s fairly obvious: Because we try to achieve too much, too fast; because we get sick of the new responsibility; because it’s difficult to change old habits and try something new. Other videos you might like: 10 Quick Tips to Lose Weight If You're Lazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvY31L_LXqA& 10 Moments All Lazy Girls Will Understand https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QTIO1lGEDE 8 Signs You're Suffering from Depression Without Knowing It https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJvehKYb8mA& TIMESTAMPS: Why do we give up so easily? 0:27 How to stop procrastinating? 0:46 How does the method work? 1:43 Why does the method work? 2:29 SUMMARY: - The technique is called Kaizen, or the one-minute principle. Kaizen originated in Japan, and it is something that anyone can attempt in any sphere of their life. - At the heart of this method is the idea that you should practice doing something for a single minute. Every day at the same time. Just for a minute, no more. - Challenging programs of self-improvement that deprive you of vast amounts of energy can end up exhausting you, and leave no tangible results. - The one-minute principle lets you see the progress you’re making. And it’s a critical part of forming new habits! It’s important to overcome that lack of confidence you might have in your abilities, as well as free yourself from guilt and helplessness. - The moment those feelings inspire you, you will gradually begin to increase the amount of time you spend on the goal that you have set yourself.

11 Secrets the Queen's Guard Don't Like to Speak About
 
07:36
Here is a riddle for you: red jackets, unsmiling faces, and huge black furry hats. Who are they? The University of Houston Marching Band? Well yeah but, I’m talking about those other guys! Those are the Queen's guards in London, the capital city of the UK! These easily recognizable and regularly photographed guys may always be in the limelight, but there are some curious things about them you definitely didn't know! For example, if an absent-minded tourist doesn't stay out of their way, the guards have all the rights to knock them over. So, watch out! Or have you ever thought why the hat strap is below the guard's nose? The thing is that the hat is so heavy that if it's struck or shot in combat, it would easily break the soldier's neck if the strap was positioned under the chin. 😱 Other videos you might like: 13 Unbelievable Coincidences That Will Leave You Confused https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz9OSmVuNHw& 16 FAMOUS LOGOS WITH A HIDDEN MEANING (That We Never Even Noticed) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKc271fj2ok& 15 Examples of Japanese Etiquette That Will Drive You Crazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR-H7yr9Ceo& TIMESTAMPS: Can they speak? 0:33 They have to faint according to protocol 0:59 They can't have a bathroom trip 1:38 No nose picking, no scratching an itch 2:00 When do they wear long grey coats? 2:34 They can't smile 3:18 Why they hate hot weather 3:58 How much their bearskin hats weight 4:28 How to become one of the Queen's guard 5:27 Why their jackets are red 6:07 Do they have fun? 6:37 #royalfamily #royalguard #queen Preview photo credit: LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - NOVEMBER 24, 2018: Royal Guard at Tower of London. Young soldier marches near a gun: By AndrewDonnikov/Depositphotos, https://depositphotos.com/241168568/stock-photo-london-united-kingdom-november-24.html Queen's Guards at the Buckingham palace in London, UK: By AndreyKr/Depositphotos, https://depositphotos.com/71734327/stock-photo-queens-guards-at-the-buckingham.html Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - It's a fact that no-one is allowed to touch the guards or threaten them. But it’s a widespread myth that they can't speak no matter what. - Even when a guard faints, he has to do it in a particular way. As soon as he feels dizzy, he must remain at attention and keep this position even when he falls, most often ending up face down. - Royal guards have strict instructions to do their necessities right on the spot. Luckily, their heavy woolen trousers are black enough to cover their embarrassment. - Since staying still for too long is bad for their health, every 10 minutes the guards leave their spot, turn, march several paces, then turn around, and go back to their place to stand still for the next 10 minutes. - The Queen's guards wear red jackets in spring and summer and long grey coats during the fall and winter months. The coats are long and warm enough to allow the soldiers to stay motionless for a long time. - If a superior notices a guard stretching his lips in a smile, the guard will face a fine of up to a week's pay! In most cases, the overly cheerful guard should be ready to part with about $260. - It turns out that when the drill boots stay in direct sunlight for too long, the polish on them starts to melt. It means that every time after their shift, the guards have to re-polish their footwear. - Hats made from the real fur are impressively heavy: one can weigh from 4.5 to 9 lb (2 to 4 kg). And when it rains or snows, the Bearskin collects all the liquid and gets even heavier! - To become one of the Queen's guard, you have to take the BARB, which stands for the British Army Recruit Battery test. It's a half-an-hour-long computer-based test which checks your problem solving, analytical, and logical skills. - The red color was chosen because the red pigment was one of the most available at those times. Also, this color needed only one stage in the process of dyeing. - If you’re lucky enough, you can hear them perform the Imperial March from Star Wars or even Indiana Jones and Game of Thrones theme songs!

Before Juliane could understand what was happening, the airliner went into a nose-dive and the cabin began tearing apart into pieces. - She realized she was all alone in the middle of the jungle. In addition to that, Juliane’s collarbone was broken and she had several deep cuts on her arms and legs. Despite those injuries, she started moving, promising herself to get through this nightmare at all cost. - Juliane was actually pretty familiar with the jungle. because her father was a biologist who studied Amazon wildlife. She spent quite a lot of time with him at his research station and he taught her a lot of things about rainforest nature. - The girl just kept walking, despite scorching heat and hunger. It was rainy season in the Amazon, meaning that there was no fruit to pick. - So she swam in the river at day and went back to the shore at night to rest. But sleeping at night was no easy feat because insects kept biting her, making her injuries even more painful. - Juliane explained to three lumberjacks who she was and what happened to her.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER
 
09:20
How to understand your cat? 🐱 How to make friends with your cat? 😍 Everyone knows that cats are the most illogical and unpredictable pets. Just try to work out what’s going through that furry little head! It turns out that cats have their own language, and if you learn it there’s a chance you’ll understand them much better. We’ve put together all of the possible cat behaviors to help you find a common language with your pet (well, if it allows you to). Also, we’ve prepared three essential tips that will help you communicate with cats better. HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CAT • How to make your cat trust you Lowering your cat to the ground, make sure its paws have reached the floor. Your cat will trust you and know that it won’t tumble if you let it go. • How to stroke your cat If you sit on the floor with your legs crossed and look at your cat, it will interpret this as a friendly gesture and come up to you to let you stroke it. Also, stretch your hand out in its direction. Your middle finger should be a little lower than the others. The cat will start rubbing its nose or face against your hand. • How to make your cat appear A cat may go and hide and only appear when it’s alone or hears a calm voice. #understandcat #catbehavior #pet TIMESTAMPS Cat's tail 0:52 Cat's eyes 3:47 Cat's interaction with people 4:38 Cat gestures 6:14 Cat language 6:57 How to communicate with your cat better 8:09 MAIN CAT GESTURES • If a cat raises its nose up and throws its head, it’s saying, “I see you.” Cats often make this gesture to people walking past the window. Have you ever noticed it? • A cat might press its ears against its head if it feels scared, worried, or wants to play. They also do this when they are sniffing something that’s interested them. • When a cat sticks its tongue out slightly and licks itself, it’s worried or anxious. CAT LANGUAGE • Cats generally greet people or announce their presence with a short sound. • Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you’re away from home for a long time. • A medium-length meow might be a request for water or food. • A long sound (a mix of purring and meowing) is a more insistent request or demand. • A low meow is a complaint or indication of dissatisfaction. Also, it might mean your cat is ready to fight. • A loud sound often indicates an urgent demand (for instance, you cat needs more food). • A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy. Now you know how to find a common language with any cat. By the way, are you a cat person or a dog person?

19 Simple Psychological Tricks That Actually Work
 
07:48
Have you ever had to use psychological tricks to get what you want? There are a lot of psychological tricks and neuro-linguistic programming tips and there are millions of books and articles written about them. Many of these tricks really help professionals manipulate people and avoid being tricked by others. But are there tips that non-professionals can use on a daily basis? Psychology is a science with certain laws one cannot ignore. Modern marketing specialists, entrepreneurs, and even swindlers realize that. Bright Side offers a few psychological tricks you can use in everyday life to make it much easier and more exciting for you to reach your goals. TIMESTAMPS: #1 0:29 #2 0:58 #3 1:18 #4 1:46 #5 2:03 #6 2:17 #7 2:40 #8 3:06 #9 3:21 #10 3:36 #11 3:55 #12 4:20 #13 4:49 #14 5:19 #15 5:51 #16 6:04 #17 6:19 #18 6:38 #19 7:04 #psychologicaltricks #psychologicaltips #changelife Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Never start your request with the words "Could you..." It can cause the other person to subconsciously assume that this is a theoretical question - If you ever want someone to feel uncomfortable, look at the middle of their forehead during the conversation. - If someone you're talking to is trying to avoid answering a question, just make a pause in the conversation while still keeping eye contact. - When asking a question that you want an affirmative answer to, try to nod subtly as you make your request. This trick is often used by restaurants employees to make guests buy more food, and it’s pretty effective! - If a person is really concentrated on a task (let's say they're in the middle of a serious phone conversation), you can extend your hand to them and get anything they’re holding at the moment. - If you want somebody to do something for you, casually say how they probably wouldn’t even be able to do it. Most people will try really hard to prove someone wrong when it comes to doubting their capabilities. - Here’s a good one for negotiations. If you like a person's offer in general but would like to get better conditions, pretend to be a little bit disappointed. - As soon as your alarm clock goes off, sit up, make two fists, and yell "Yeah!" as if you’re a soccer player who's just scored a goal. It sounds bizarre, but it really does help you easily get out of bed feeling refreshed. - If a person tries to pull you into an argument or some drama, say something nice to them. The ol’ “kill ‘em with kindness” trick really does stop them in their tracks. - If you have that one lazy person on your team that slows the whole work process down, don't give them tasks by saying "Do this." It’s better to say "Start with this." - If someone is staring at you in the subway (happens all-too often, right?), just look at their shoes. Don't give up, keep gazing! It’ll drive them crazy! - If someone has done something wrong, but you don’t wanna sound too accusing, change the way you construct your sentences. - If you didn't get a good night's sleep, tell yourself that you did. I know, it sounds like nonsense, but it does work 100% if you say it with meaning! - People are better at remembering what happened at the beginning and end of the day. As for anything that went on in between, it gets blurry.

Start Eating 2 Cloves Per Day, See What Will Happen to You
 
08:33
What are the health benefits of cloves? Around the world, cloves are used to flavor meats and stews, to make rich sauces like Mexican mole, to pickle vegetables, and in cheeses, breads, and warm beverages like tea. Your options are limitless! Cloves are very well-known for their medicinal properties. And that’s because they’re rich in a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Eating just two little cloves a day can relieve digestive issues, strengthen your immune system, and even help you fight off cancer! And there’s a lot more where that came from! Other videos you might like: Eat Garlic Every Day, And See What Happens to You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRhSIekdReM& Can You Drink Water When You Eat? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrnoD_enMfw&t 20 Foods to Eat And Avoid on an Empty Stomach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-sCp8c9fOE& TIMESTAMPS: What cloves are 0:40 They strengthen the immune system 1:17 They help treat digestive issues 1:35 They can alleviate toothaches 2:14 They contribute to a healthy liver 2:34 They help reduce pain and inflammation in the body 2:52 They’re good for your bones and joints 3:30 They’re antibacterial 3:52 They can be used as a cancer preventative 4:29 They’re full of antioxidants 5:10 They can help regulate blood sugar 5:56 They help with blood clotting 6:46 How to Eat Cloves 7:15 #cloves #antioxidants #behealthy Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - By increasing the number of white blood cells in the body, which help us fight off infections, cloves are one of the best things we can take for immune support. - Cloves can be used as a remedy for digestive problems since they increase the secretion of digestive enzymes. - If you have a toothache or a cavity that’s bothering you, you can keep a clove on the bothersome tooth to eliminate the pain until you can get yourself to the dentist! - A study done by the Department of Food Sciences and Nutrition in Cairo, Egypt found that the eugenol contained in clove oil improved liver function. - Eugenol gives cloves their painkilling and anti-inflammatory properties! One way you can take advantage of this is to use cloves as a headache remedy. - Cloves have certain elements like flavonoids, manganese, and eugenol that promote bone and joint health. - A study done at the University of Buenos Aires put cloves to the test against some pretty serious bacteria, like E. Coli and Staph. The research showed that clove oil was effective at killing off these bacteria. - Clove extract helped stop growing tumors and even caused cell death in several versions of human cancer cells. They included lung, breast, and ovarian cancer, as well as other types of cancers in their early stages. - Clove is great for people with blood sugar issues, like diabetes, because it acts like insulin inside the body. It actually helps export excess sugar from the blood into the cells of the body, bringing balance back to sugar levels. - Cloves contain vitamin K, which is essential for promoting healthy blood clotting. This is especially beneficial for those who have issues with excessive bleeding due to a vitamin K deficiency.

Have you ever heard a story and thought, “No way is that actually possible!” Well, some people have lived through the most impossible and extreme situations that it’s kinda hard to wrap your head around it!

Her skin was completely frozen, her eyes weren’t reacting to any light, but she was alive! Her pulse was only 12 beats per minute, and her body temperature was just 88°F. - When explosives used to clear the way to build a railroad went off early, a huge iron rod was sent right through Gage’s head! He didn’t even seem phased by the whole thing! He casually chatted with people who walked passed him while waiting for the doctor to arrive. - The next story is about a few friends who were all relaxing in a hammock. When hey went back in the house, a huge branch snapped and fell on the hammock in the exact spot where they would’ve been lying! - The pilot didn’t strap Gursky properly to the glider. The man did fall, but he grabbed onto the pole and the pilot’s shoulder just in time to catch himself. Gursky had to hold on to dear life with all his strength for a whole 3 minutes before the pilot could attempt to land safely. - Have you ever heard the saying “lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice”? I guess it’s still true, but nobody said anything about it striking the same person twice…or even 7 times! - A man named Joe Simpson was climbing in the Peruvian Andes.

A One-Day Starvation Secret Got the Nobel Prize
 
09:34
You probably know that most tissues in your body regularly replace their cells with new ones. Different organs need their own time to renew completely. And some tissues don't replace their cells at all. But have you ever wondered where the dead cells of your body end up? Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi, a Japanese cell biologist, spent years studying how human cells get rid of their waste. If this process in the body doesn't work correctly, a person can develop type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, some age-related diseases, and even cancer. And it turned out that when you fast, your cells live longer and produce more energy!

Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine for elucidating "autophagy," an intracellular process that degrades and recycles proteins: By Kyodo/Associated Press/East News, https://www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/52380261/i/0/t/0 Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The first person who discovered autophagy was Belgian biochemist Dr. Christian de Duve. For this discovery, he got the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974. - Surprisingly, studies show that they still have approximately the same amount of proteins and carbohydrates in their digestive system as they would if they ate animal protein. - The body can use its own protein in the form of dead and damaged cells and bacteria which have been previously stored away. - If your natural recycling mechanism doesn't work, damaged cells and their parts start to accumulate in the body. And it ends up unable to neutralize cancer cells and cells infected by dangerous viruses and bacteria. As a result, this can lead to various serious illnesses. - Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi found out that autophagy gets more intensive when the body is undergoing some stress. Such stress can be fasting, calorie restriction, or even starvation. - In all his studies, Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi used starvation and fasting to encourage the body to break down toxic cells and get rid of all the garbage. - Intermittent fasting, which is alternating the periods of eating and fasting, can help your body to clean itself. Besides, it can help you to lose weight and speed up your metabolism. - If you're a newbie in the world of fasting and the practice looks a bit intimidating, start with skipping your meals. In general, it's enough to skip one meal a day to boost your metabolism and trigger cleansing processes in your body. Just remember that if you've skipped a meal, you shouldn't overeat at the next one. - One more interesting conclusion you can draw from this research is that, despite what some people think, vegetarians don't suffer from a lack of animal protein. They just get it in a different way.

She was still kept under house arrest for almost a year, though. - Elizabeth’s predecessors died before they could produce an heir, so she took the throne. - Once she became queen, Elizabeth’s advisors started a campaign to make flattering portraits of her. Later on, these depictions would include details of classic goddesses like Venus or Diana. - Elizabeth was adamant that she wouldn’t marry any man in her lifetime, and she stood her ground. After all, she was a dedicated leader married to her country. - Being the Virgin Queen didn’t prevent Elizabeth from becoming the subject of all kinds of rumors. One of the most viable was that she was in love with her lifelong friend Robert Dudley. - She was very, very elaborate about her looks, and spent over 4 hours a day getting ready!

A Glass of Water Saved a Plane From Crashing
 
10:06
The plane had been used for 20 years, but it had never suffered a single accident before, so the cabin crew had no doubts the flight would be easy. Passengers got on board the plane; flight attendants nonchalantly checked their boarding passes; everything went as usual. The first pilot greeted everyone, and the flight began. But what happened after that was really scary. No electricity on board, all equipment down, no airport in sight, and only a half-forgotten runway deep in the Siberian snow forest. It’s hard to imagine a worse scenario for a passenger plane landing, so it’s a real miracle that everyone ended up safe and sound. And all of it thanks to… a glass of water.

Air traffic control also neglected the problem. - Just 8 minutes after the announcement, the lights in the cabin went off. Only the flight attendants paid any attention to it, believing everything was alright. In the cockpit, though, the situation immediately became desperate. - Without the equipment, the plane became crippled. It was still operable, but all the navigational systems refused to work, the radio went offline, and the fuel transfer pumps were also lost. - Without any means to control the angle at which they descended, they used an old and almost forgotten trick: a glass of water put on the control panel. - As Captain Novosyolov later said in an interview, it was a pure stroke of luck that they saw a landing strip near the town of Izhma. It was an old airport that had been abandoned for a long time and closed for any aircraft except helicopters. - Despite the abandonment of the airport, airport supervisor Sergey Sotnikov, of his own will, kept the runway in a good condition for all those years. He cut down the emerging brush, swept away garbage, and even drew the runway marking when it faded. - Before the last attempt at landing, all passengers and the cabin crew were transferred to the front of the plane to be ready for an emergency evacuation. - The emergency escape slides were dispatched. And all 72 passengers along with all 9 crew members safely went down to the ground. None of them were even slightly injured. - The lucky passengers and crew were transported by helicopters to nearby Ukhta, from where they went on to Moscow by another plane, and only one family decided they’d had enough air travel for a lifetime and took a train instead. - Sergey Novosyolov and his co-pilot Andrey Lamanov were made Heroes of the Russian Federation, while the rest of the cabin crew received the Orders of Courage. - After that, the aircraft continued performing flights for another 7 years. It received its own nickname, Izhma, and in September 2018 it flew for the last time.

Why Cats Lie on Their Backs When They See You
 
09:28
While cats have been domesticated pets since the days of Cleopatra, there’s still a lot about them that remains a mystery. Like when they just roll over as you approach them, what’s up with that? Actually, when cats lie on their back and expose their bellies, it’s their way of saying “Hello, human!”! But it's not the only message a cat sends when it shows you its cute furry little belly. Today we're talking about cat behaviors. Why do they expose their belly? Why do they bring you dead animals? Why do they like watching from afar? There are plenty of other things they do that just have you scratching your head in confusion. Let's figure out together! Other videos you might like: 26 Facts About Cats That'll Make You Love Them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO_EunoUSWg& HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6yBbBRr8Y 19 Awesome Cats That Cost a Fortune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLSZmmDBM9Y& TIMESTAMPS: Showing you its belly 0:43 Rubbing its head on you 2:15 Kneading 2:49 Blinking at you slowly 3:37 Watching from afar 4:01 Scratching your furniture 4:59 Chattering its teeth 5:45 Bringing you dead animals 6:43 Sitting in the most random places 7:22 Bursting with energy in the middle of the night 8:10 #cats #catbehavior #yourpet Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Be careful not to invade your cat’s space unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched. Look for other clues like their ears and tail. If their tail is moving back and forth and their ears are set back, this means they’d rather be left alone. - When a cat weaves through your legs and rubs its head on you, it's called bunting, and it involves a release of pheromones from a cat’s head. Basically, it’s as if they’re leaving their scent on you to make sure other cats know that you belong to them. - Have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start pressing their little paws into you over and over again? When cats do this sort of bread-kneading motion, it’s actually leftover from their kitten days when they used to nurse. - Has your cat ever made prolonged eye contact with you while blinking really slowly every few seconds? It’s awkward, I know! But this is actually a way for your cat to show you affection! - If you find that your cat is watching you from afar but never wants to engage, this could be a sign that they’re anxious or even mad at you. - Similar to how a dog urinates on things to mark their territory (which cats can do too sometimes, by the way), cats like to scratch furniture to show others what’s theirs. - If your cat’s teeth are chattering really fast, it doesn’t mean they have the chills. It’s actually related to a natural instinct to hunt. - Many animal behaviorists believe that your cat shares a successful kill with you as a way of thanking you for your care. Cats also do this in hopes that you’ll see how good they are, and you’ll pay more attention to them! - Cats seem to love squeezing into small spaces, even though it often looks terribly uncomfortable. They do this because it helps them feel protected and safe. - Many house cats hold in a lot of energy during the day and since they have nocturnal instincts, they often go nuts in the middle of the night.

Why Intermittent Fasting Burns Fat Faster And for Good
 
09:53
How to Lose Weight and Belly Fat Fast. Intermittent fasting (or I.F.) is the most popular weight loss program today. How can you use it to drop a few pounds quickly and get the body of your dreams? Let’s answer the most important question here: is it possible for the human body to endure long hours of fasting on a daily basis? TIMESTAMPS Who created intermittent fasting? 1:15 Misconceptions about intermittent fasting 2:24 How can you split your day or week into an eating period and a fasting period? 3:31 What can you achieve with intermittent fasting? 6:39 Other health benefits besides getting the perfect body 7:09 Who shouldn’t try this eating pattern 7:43 How to make it more effective 8:10 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -It was popularized by the American writer Upton Sinclair in the 1900s. Sinclair practiced juice cleansing and fasting at the same time. -Intermittent fasting is not a diet plan but an eating pattern. With I.F., you don’t starve but still have to eat and drink, but it should be time-restricted. It’s not dangerous for you because it doesn’t leave you with no food at all for long periods of time. -You can try out one of the patterns: the 16:8 pattern, the 5:2 pattern, “Eat Stop Eat", Alternate day fasting, and The Warrior Diet. -Over the course of time, your body will eventually overcome the side effects. In the fasting period, your body will get the energy from burning fat. The longer you fast, the more fat is burned in the process. -It can prevent type 2 diabetes and promote insulin resistance. It is good for the heart. It may prevent cancer. It improves brain function. -Children and teens, people with diabetes, low blood pressure, underweight, pregnant, breastfeeding, or people trying to conceive should consult a doctor before trying it out. -You should also remember that you can’t lose weight through intermittent fasting alone. It is also safe to exercise while fasting , but it takes time to adjust to it. Sacrifices must be made: saying goodbye to your favorite greasy foods or not eating from time to time.

A Man Survived on a Plane's Wing And a Fall from the Sky
 
08:27
May 27, 1995 could have been an ordinary day for the MiG-17 pilot, but it became an interesting chapter in the history of aviation. The high-subsonic fighter aircraft was doing tactical maneuvers when it got off the runway and stuck in the mud. A group of ground service mechanics came to the rescue – their task was to pull the plane out of the mud and back on the track. One of the mechanics was Peter Gorbanev, and for him, this operation clearly became more than a routine day at work.

The Only Way to Survive a Fall Without a Parachute
 
10:37
Imagine: you’re flying! But wait, where’s the plane? A wingsuit? Parachute? Anything! Uh-oh, looks like you’re 6 miles high and free-falling! So, is this it or is there a way to hack yourself out of this dire situation? A person’s chances of survival when falling from a height of 35,000 feet (10,000 m) are slim. Anyway, despite this poor outlook, you still have a glimmer of hope! You’ll be surprised to know that if you were to stumble from the top of a tall building, you’d be in a much worse situation! Actually, there is a book that lists over 200 cases of people falling from a plane without a parachute and living to tell the tale. Other videos you might like: 10 Survival Tips That Turn Out to Be Harmful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKdqWUeVJaE& 11 Survival Tips from a Former Secret Agent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3K-SH7dGW0& 13 Tips on How to Survive Wild Animal Attacks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkFFq11j6dQ& TIMESTAMPS: While you’re unconscious...1:12 How long you will fall 2:16 How about becoming a “wreckage rider”? 2:36 Surviving flight attendant's story 3:20 Not water! 4:20 What can soften the blow 5:21 How to direct your fall 5:52 What if you landed in the jungle 7:35 #survivaltips #survivalhacks #brightside Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Right from the get-go, you’d probably pass out because there’s not much oxygen when you’re 6 miles (10 km) up in the atmosphere. - Earth’s gravity is pulling you down and trying to accelerate you. On the other hand, like any moving object, you’re facing air resistance, which is kind of a drag. - If you were falling from a skyscraper, you’d land with the same force as when you fall from a 6-mile height. But you’d only have 12 seconds to prepare for contact, versus having approximately 3 minutes when falling from a plane. - The first scenario is when you’re free-falling with just yourself and the clothes on your back. The second way is to try and become a “wreckage rider.” - In 1972, Serbian flight attendant Vesna Vulović incidentally broke a world record for surviving the highest fall without a parachute. - In 1943, American military pilot Alan Magee survived a 20,000-foot (6,000 m) absolute free-fall that ended with him crashing through the glass ceiling of the St. Nazaire train station in France. - Not water! When you’re falling at 120 mph (190 kph) from 6 miles (10 km) high, water will feel like concrete. - Look for something that can soften the blow – a snow bank or slope, a haystack, a big tree. Marshland is ideal since it’s soft and swampy. Just watch out for the gators afterward. - Now that you’ve chosen your target, you need to try and direct your fall. To slow down, spread your arms and legs apart (think flying squirrel!), throw your head back, and straighten your shoulders. - You’re not skydiving in this scenario. Just remember that no matter what the surface below is, you need to avoid landing on your head. - If you’re falling with your head down and can do nothing about it, try to land on your face. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s better than hitting the top or back of your skull.

The Mystery of the Disappeared Bodies of the Titanic
 
08:18
The titan of the sea, the great unsinkable ship that sank – over a century later, the mystery of the Titanic is still being studied to this day. Only a third of the ship’s passengers survived, while over 1,500 lost their lives. But out of all those casualties, only 340 bodies were recovered. So, the question remains: what happened to the remaining 1,160? Other videos you might like: Scientists Have Found The Titanic Will Disappear Soon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p57BPLgEHiY& The Truth About the Titanic Has Been Revealed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxdRTaAp5Fw& 10 Shocking Theories That'll Make You Question Everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2ryNz9ZYEs& TIMESTAMPS: Why there were only 20 lifeboats 0:32 Why the Titanic’s lookouts didn't see the iceberg 1:32 Why the ship was sailing at an unsafe speed 2:25 Why some of the bodies weren't found 2:56 The Unsinkable Molly Brown 4:32 Lucky Lawrence Beesley 5:46 How Violet Constance Jessop survived... twice 6:26 Who were on the first lifeboat 7:20 #titanic #titanicbodies #titanicsurvivers Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The Titanic didn’t have enough lifeboats for all its passengers. There were only 20, and they needed 60 to be able to carry everybody on board to safety. - Perhaps those poor souls could’ve been rescued from the bone-chilling waters a lot sooner if the closest ships passing by the Titanic’s crash site had seen the flairs and other distress signals being sent. - The ship was also moving much faster than the speed it was built for. The reason for this was that the ship’s owner, White Star Line, didn’t want to fall behind schedule. - Only hours after the Titanic sank, a massive storm came over the ocean. The currents and winds would’ve swept many bodies up to 50 miles away from the crash site. - Of course, there were those victims that went down with the ship, and they had no chance of being retrieved. As for the bodies that were recovered, some were given a proper burial at sea if there wasn’t room for them on the rescue ship. - The brave and selfless woman earned herself the nickname “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” and after the ship went down, she tried her best to get as many passengers as she could into the lifeboats. - There was also author, journalist, and teacher, Lawrence Beesley. He later wrote a book that brought him a lot of success called The Loss of the SS Titanic. - Another survivor was Violet Constance Jessop, who was a stewardess on the ship. Jessop hadn’t planned to work on the Titanic until her friends convinced her to apply for the job. - Dorothy Gibson, a beautiful American singer, model, and silent film actress was also a survivor of the Titanic. Gibson was one of the richer and more famous aboard the ship.

All 4 Engines Failed Over a Volcano, See What Happened Next

It happened on June 24, 1982. On a calm summer night, passengers boarded the plane that would take them from Kuala Lumpur to Perth. The atmosphere was relaxed; the weather was fine, there were no approaching thunderstorms, and the plane didn't have any technical issues. There were 247 passengers and 100 tons of fuel on board the plane. But by the time the plane was in the air south-east of Jakarta, Indonesia, the first officer was sending out a Mayday distress call. All four of their engines had failed...

British Airways Flight 9, also called Speedbird 9, performed its scheduled flight from London Heathrow to Auckland, with 5 stops on the way: in Bombay, Madras, Kuala Lumpur, Perth, and Melbourne. - There were 247 passengers and 100 tons (90 tonnes) of fuel on board the plane. That night, although moonless, was quite clear, and the flying conditions couldn't be better. All in all, the crew expected an uneventful 5-hour flight. - The windshields were ablaze with the most intense phenomenon of St. Elmo's fire the captain had ever seen in his life. As soon as the captain fastened his seat belt, he looked at the weather radar - and it wasn't showing any thunder clouds at all! - The flight went on, but the smoke started to accumulate in the airplane's passenger cabin. And while at first, it resembled cigarette smoke, with every passing minute, it was getting thicker and acquired the ominous stench of sulfur. - It was 8:42 when Barry Townley-Freeman shouted that engine number four had flamed out. Without losing time, the crew shut down the engine by arming the fire extinguishers and cutting off the fuel supply. - The captain estimated that they could glide 15 miles (24 km) for every mile (1.6 km) they dropped. It meant that the plane was able to glide for only 23 minutes and cover the distance of 91 nautical miles (168 km). - Mothers were hugging their kids, husbands were squeezing their wives' hands, flight attendants were teaming solo passengers together so they could support each other in the seemingly last minutes of their lives. - When the pilots tried to restart the engines again at 8:56 PM, engine number four roared back to life! With its help, the captain managed to reduce the speed of their descent. Even better, several minutes later the three other engines started as well! - As the plane was approaching Jakarta, it turned out that the cockpit crew couldn't see anything through the windshield, even though the visibility outside was perfect. - They could see the runway lights through a tiny strip of window, but the aircraft's landing lights didn't work. Even so, the captain managed to perform a perfectly smooth landing. - During the investigation, it turned out that the near-tragedy happened because the plane flew into a cloud of volcanic ash left after the eruption of Mount Galuggung in 1982.

A Man Spent 18 YEARS at the Airport

If you've ever had to take a plane somewhere, you probably know how it feels to have your flight delayed by several hours. But imagine being stuck at the airport for a whopping 18 years!

For 4 years, he got nothing but rejections from different European countries. But in 1981, fortune finally smiled upon him. - Nasseri was already an adult when his mother told him that he wasn’t her real son. It turned out that his birthmother was a Scottish nurse who’d had an affair with his father. - When he arrived at Heathrow Airport, he didn't have his refugee papers with him! Nasseri claimed that they’d been stolen on a train when he was on his way from Belgium to Paris. - Upon his arrival at Charles de Gaulle Airport, things really started getting weird. Since Nasseri didn't have his refugee papers, Parisian passport control authorities also wouldn’t let him leave the airport! - At first, Nasseri thought that his airport stay wouldn't last longer than a few days, maybe weeks at the most. But months went by, then years, and the man was still living in Terminal 1. - He mostly stayed on his personal red bench on the restaurant floor reading books and newspapers and writing down his experience in a diary. - Once his story spread around, concerned and generous people started sending him some money. - In 1995, 7 years into his stay at Terminal 1, Belgium agreed to send the necessary documents by mail. On top of that, France even granted Nasseri a residence permit. - But his new papers were under his birth name, Mehran Karimi Nasseri, and they had his nationality listed as Iranian, which he said wasn’t factual. - Nasseri's lawyer said that at first, his client was pretty sharp and his story made total sense! But over time, the details started changing and getting mixed up to the point that it became anything but believable. - In 2006, Nasseri finally left the airport 18 years after he’d first set foot there. Unfortunately, it wasn't his voluntary choice. He’d gotten sick and was taken to the hospital.

A Plane Lost Its Floor But the Captain Saved the Day

Imagine you need to get from Los Angeles to New York. To make it not so painfully long, you choose to take American Airlines Flight 96, with stopovers in Detroit and Buffalo. But several minutes after your plane leaves Detroit, it happens. Seemingly out of the blue - bang! And a part of the aircraft's floor is missing right under your feet! It happened on June 12, 1972. Captain Bryce McCormick was an aviation veteran with more than 24,000 flight hours under his belt. The co-pilot was also an experienced airman. There were 56 passengers on board the plane and 11 crew members. When the autopilot was turned on and the chief flight attendant went to the galley to make coffee, it happened. She was suddenly brought down to the floor by a powerful explosion...

He didn't have anything to worry about: the radar confirmed that there was no bad weather on the route between Detroit and Buffalo. - Cydya Smith, the chief flight attendant on Flight 96, left her seat as soon as she saw the signs off and went to the galley to make coffee. And at exactly that moment, it happened. - The cockpit was rapidly filling with dark gray dust that blinded the men and didn't let them breathe. - Unexplainably, a cargo door had been blown out less than 5 minutes after takeoff, and it left the plane with a gaping hole in its side. - Hurricane force winds were sweeping through the cabin. One of the cabin crew members, Beatrice Copeland, was trapped under the collapsed door, unconscious. - The biggest problem was that the DC-10 had one peculiarity: it didn't have a backup system that allowed for manual operation if the hydraulic system got knocked out. - At that moment, the people on board the damaged plane still didn't know how lucky they were having Mr. McCormick as a pilot. Being curious about some of the DC-10 features, he’d spent hours on a flight deck simulator. - McCormick understood that his damaged plane would need the priority to land, and he contacted the Detroit airport control tower. - When the plane touched down, it was still moving incredibly fast. But the worst thing was that the aircraft was moving toward the main terminal building. - Miraculously, Whitney managed to return the plane to the runway, with two sets of wheels running on the runway and the other two off. - ll 67 people on board were alive, with only 11 not very serious injuries (9 passengers and 2 crew). - A large cargo door gone as if peeled away by a huge can opener. But on the very same day, the missing door was located in a cornfield not far from Windsor, and investigators came to a shocking conclusion.

They Found a Man at Sea But How He Survived Is Shocking
 
07:33
Stories about world records are often stories about fierce competition and glory. But the holder of this stunning record once famously said that he really hopes no one will ever have to beat it. And it’s not because he wants it only for himself, but because we’re talking about Poon Lim, the man that survived over 4 months on a raft, stranded in the ocean. To be exact, he’d been there for 133 hard days straight. He survived everything a shipwreck survivor might have the misfortune of going through! Thirst, starvation, raging storms, desperation and the ever-menacing presence of bloodthirsty sea predators – you name it, Poon Lim had to deal with it! But how could all this happen to him?

A lot of young Chinese people went to become sailors on board UK ships and Poon Lim was one of them. He was assigned to the merchant ship called SS Ben Lomond as a steward. - The ship sank so fast, that she sucked down water around her. All 55 members of the crew were dragged into the depth. - Poon Lim was one of 11 lucky survivors, though he wasn’t lucky enough. The 10 others were soon saved by passing ships. Lim’s only hope was the life raft from SS Ben Lomond. - It was 8 by 8 ft (2.5 m), had some sort of tent to provide shade and cover from the rain, tin cans of dry biscuits, 40 liters of water, and signal flares. - He saw passing ships many times, but they didn’t notice him. Once, he even saw a German U-boat like the one that began this nightmare. - Storms became a problem, not only for the flimsy raft itself, but most importantly for the supplies. In a single stormy night, they were all gone! All the jars with fresh water, all the dried fish – everything! - The remains of the birds lured sharks to Poon Lim’s raft and fish decided to swim for their lives as fast as they could. - One day, Poon Lim noticed that the water around him changed color and he rejoiced, because that could only mean one thing – he was near land. It was Brazil, in fact. - After two weeks in the hospital, he was ready to go back to Britain, where he was rewarded with a British Empire Medal and a golden watch from his employers as a symbolic compensation.

Whether you’re an early riser and the first thing you do is head to the gym or you prefer to exercise after you have some food in your system, people who exercise enjoy better sleep than those who don’t. According to the National Sleep Foundation, people who exercise lightly see a 49% increase in quality of sleep. TIMESTAMPS: Warm-up 0:41 Squats 2:20 Donkey kicks 3:42 Push-ups 5:05 Squat and side crunch 6:25 Plank-ups 7:52 Standing crossover toe touches 9:11 Cool down 1:32 #sleepbetter #homeworkout #insomnia Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - #1. To make sure you’re bringing your knee high enough, you can bend your elbows at a 90º angle and touch your knee to your hand. To make this move harder, add a slight jump to the exercise while you bring your knees up high. - #2. If you have a hard time balancing, extend your arms as you head down, and lower them while you stand. If that’s too difficult, you can place a chair behind you to balance yourself. - #3. Avoid using momentum and letting your leg drop back down as you’ll be missing out on the workout if you do. Keep the movement controlled. - #4. For an easier approach, you can modify the exercise by letting your knees rest on the floor. - #5. This move will target your abdominals and work on your oblique muscles. It’s a great exercise to get rid of love handles. - #6. This is a killer move that will strengthen your core, and it will also tone up your arms, shoulders, glutes, and abdominals. If this is too intense, try holding an elbow plank position: hold yourself up by your forearms for as long as you can. - #7. This move involves your lower back and targets your abdominals and obliques. It will improve your flexibility and strength. - #8. Doing this cool down will ensure that your muscles are nice and loose for when you get up in the morning.

7 Unique Places Even Scientists Can't Explain
 
10:14
Exploring outer space is awesome, but what if there are places right here on Earth that are just as incredible and jaw-dropping? Luckily for you, you live on Planet Earth, a place that holds secrets so wild and baffling that even scientists can’t always explain them! Have you ever heard about the Boiling River in the Amazon or never-ending light storm? Can you believe that there’s a place on Earth with its own ecosystem and atmosphere, similar to another planet? Maybe you wanna see dancing lights in the sky? Well, the residents of Hessdalen Valley, Norway, can enjoy them every night! The world is full of amazing things, so prepare to be amazed as you learn about 7 of the most unbelievable mysteries and phenomena.

One side has water falling into another body of water, Lake Superior; the other one has water that falls straight into a huge natural hole in the ground. Where does this water lead? No one seems to know! - While today we have machines that can help us lift heavy materials to build giant buildings and monuments, back in the days when Stonehenge was built, no one had access to this type of technology. - In Hessdalen Valley, brightly colored lights appear in the sky in different colors and shapes. For the last 4 decades (and possibly longer!), this phenomenon has continued to puzzle scientists. - Deep in the Amazon rainforests lies a flowing river in the forested region of Mayantuyacu that boasts temperatures so hot that any person or animal that falls into it literally boils alive from the inside out. - Movile Cave, located in Southeastern Romania, remained closed in complete darkness for a whopping 5.5 million years! Scientists carved out an opening to the cave and found that a completely sustained ecosystem was thriving inside! - Circles of Namibia are almost perfect and range anywhere from 10 to 65 ft in diameter. Many scientists have offered up theories as to why these circles appear instead of other more random shapes. - But in Western Venezuela, over the mouth of the Catatumbo River, there’s a lightning storm that seems to be running on Energizer batteries — it just keeps going and going! Once the clock strikes 7 PM, the lightning storm begins and doesn’t relent for another 10 long hours.

11 Things You Should Avoid Doing on the Plane
 
10:12
When you board an airplane, you expect a pleasant flight with as much comfort as you could get. But your comfort — and safety too, for that matter, — heavily depends on your friendly flight attendants. Of course, they won’t say anything, but there are things they frown upon — and one that they just loathe. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So, if you really want a nice journey, you should keep in mind not to do those things that earn you the wrath of the flight attendants. Other videos you might like: The Only Way to Survive a Fall Without a Parachute https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5SGdWWu0sI& A Glass of Water Saved a Plane From Crashing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhlfw9IVygs& Pilots Reveal 16 Nuances That Make Your Flight Safe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVYXErxau-U TIMESTAMPS Going to the airplane bathroom while boarding 0:34 Taking too much carry-on 1:23 Bringing sources of strong smells 2:24 Leaving your headphones on 4:03 Asking to switch seats 4:41 Getting up while the “Fasten your seatbelts” sign is on 5:19 Constantly pressing the call button 6:01 Asking about the menu 6:42 Not giving your trash to the flight attendants 7:15 Not listening to the safety presentation 8:17 Touching flight attendants to get their attention 9:00 #flightattendants #planerules #brightside SUMMARY - When there’s a line of passengers waiting to use the bathroom while everyone else is looking for their seats, delays are guaranteed. - So when you take too much carry-on with you, two unpleasant things happen at once: one, you make other people wait while you put all your stuff up there, and two, those people who’ve been waiting for you can’t put their own bags into the bins because you’ve hogged them. - Even pleasant smells can get on your nerves when there’s just too much of them. That perfumed piece of handmade soap you carry on with you has a wonderful aroma, but only for the first few minutes. - When a flight attendant approaches you to ask a question, it’s polite to take off your headphones and pay them your full attention. - Flight attendants confess that one of the most frustrating things is when passengers start trying to persuade them to change their seat assignments. The thing is, they simply can’t do that. - When taking off, taxiing, and landing, as well as during turbulence, you should stay seated and fasten your belt in case anything happens. - If you insistently press the call button for no good reason, chances are you’ll be asked to stop doing that — or even ignored completely. - When you ask a flight attendant what they have, you make other passengers wait longer and get edgy — consider this when you take your time ordering your food and drinks. - One of the downsides of working as a flight attendant is that you only get paid for the hours of actual flight. All the work you do while on land is free. - Safety presentations are really similar on most airlines, but it’s still worth it to refresh them in your memory before the flight. - It’s absolutely not fine to poke or grab a flight attendant for any reason, just like any other person. Some attendants say, though, that there are people who find it okay to touch them by the knee or ankle when they pass by.

8 Signs Your Body Is Begging for Vitamin D
 
08:21
What are the signs of vitamin D deficiency? Vitamin D greatly influences the systems of our body from ensuring calcium supply to our bones to strengthening our immune system. We normally get this vitamin from foods, supplements, and the sun’s rays, but when something goes wrong and we face vitamin D deficiency, our body systems may break. For example, sweating that seems a little excessive or not brought on by anything particularly obvious, however, can be a sign that you’re lacking vitamin D. So what other signs show a deficiency, how serious is the problem, and what can you do to get more of it? Here at Bright Side, we’ve studied the most common symptoms of low vitamin D levels and we want to tell you what we’ve found. TIMESTAMPS: You sweat excessively 1:01 Your bones often ache 1:35 You have muscle pain 2:11 You get sick all the time 2:47 You can’t seem to stay energized 3:26 When you get cuts or bruises, they take forever to heal 4:03 You notice more hair falling out of your head than usual 4:52 You can’t shake the feeling of sadness 5:25 What can you do to get more of vitamin D? 6:26 #vitamind #vitamindeficiency #lackofvitamins Preview photo credit: FORT MEADE, Md. Sweat drips down the face of a U.S. Army Reserve Soldier from the 200th Military Police Command during a Spin class as part of a Performance Triad program organized by the command and hosted on Fort Meade, Maryland, May 9, 2017. The three-week fitness program took place from May 5-25 to help Soldiers who had either failed the Army Physical Fitness Test or had been on the Army Body Fat Composition program. The camp focused on the triad of overall health: physical fitness, nutrition and sleep, by providing education and personalized coaching to Soldiers in all three of those phases of life and more: By Master Sgt. Michel Sauret/U.S. Army Reserve, https://www.usar.army.mil/News/Images/igphoto/2001753153/ Animation is created by Bright Side. Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Without vitamin D, your bones can’t absorb the necessary amount of calcium to create healthy bone tissue, causing a weakening of the bones known as osteomalacia. - In addition to aching bones and muscles, a lack of vitamin D can cause chronic pain throughout the entire body. This debilitating condition is known as fibromyalgia, and it makes life a living nightmare for those who suffer from it! - Suffering from your 4th or 5th virus this year? It may be because a lack of vitamin D is causing your immune system to work poorly. - It’s 4 pm and you feel like you have two bricks as eyelids and barely have the strength to get up from your desk. Sound familiar? There could be quite a few reasons for this feeling. But it can also be due to a lack of vitamin D. - Does it seem like your small wounds and injuries take longer to heal than everyone else’s? But this kind of slow healing can also be because of a lack of (say it with me) vitamin D! - The average person loses anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs from their head every day. But if you suffer from a lack of vitamin D, you can lose way more than that, at least enough to notice that something’s definitely not right. - According to Psychology Today, vitamin D is the only vitamin that is also a hormone. In studies on the relationship between vitamin D and depression, scientists discovered traces of the vitamin on cells found in the regions where depression resides. - Vitamin D can be attained by spending time outside. According to The Arthritis Foundation, spending 10-15 minutes in the sun every other day or so can help replenish your vitamin D levels. Even sitting by an open window can help give you more vitamin D!

We have 17 jaw-dropping facts about your body that may still be hard to swallow and digest, but you will be all ears to hear about them! #humanbody #factsaboutbody #interestingfacts TIMESTAMPS Your brain generates enough electricity to power a light bulb. 0:49 Human teeth are roughly as strong as shark teeth. 1:25 Stomach acid can make a hole in your skin. 1:59 The human hair is virtually indestructible. 2:44 Humans can create up to 7,000 different facial expressions. 3:09 Babies have over 60 more bones in their bodies than adults. 3:33 The resolution of the eye is estimated to be around 500 megapixels. 3:55 An adult's skin weighs around 17,6 pounds on average. 4:26 The human skeleton regenerates itself every 10 years. 4:52 Your eyes stay closed for about 10% of your waking hours. 5:14 Your kidneys filter all of your blood about 25 times a day. 5:45 The pink corner of our eye is the third eyelid. 6:15 The liver is capable of fully regenerating its original size. 6:39 Your heartbeat synchronizes with the rhythm of the music you are listening to. 7:05 The enzymes that are responsible for digesting the food will begin to digest the human body itself after death. 7:32 Some of the atoms in our bodies are stardust that is billions of years old. 7:44 In an average lifetime, the heart pumps around 53 million gallons of blood. 8:14 SUMMARY 17 Jaw-Dropping Facts You Didn't Know About the Human Body: - When you are awake, your brain is known to generate electricity in the amount of about 15-25 watts. This power is quite enough to keep a low-wattage LED lamp shining! - The fun part: the enamel which covers the top of your teeth is the hardest part of your whole body. - Hydrochloric acid is a typical "inhabitant" of a human stomach. This type of acid is industrial-grade and can, in fact, destroy metals! - Even the content of your bloodstreams such as vitamins, drugs, or alcohol, can be found out from a strand of hair analysis. - According to scientists, there are four main facial expressions: angry, afraid/surprised, happy, and sad. Based on these, all the rest of 7,000 expressions are performed. - Babies are born with as many as 270 bones. Later on, some of the bones start fusing together, for instance, the bones of the spine. - The resolution of the human eye is estimated to be around 500 megapixels.

A kidney of an adult isn't big at all, in fact, its size can be compared to that of a fist. - Humans retain a tiny fold in the inner corner of the eye. It is what is left from a membrane birds, and mammals have had for protecting the eye and sweeping out debris, at the same time providing visibility. - People who donate part of their liver to those who are in need, don't have to worry about their health. Their liver will soon regenerate the part which has been donated. - Music, especially the one that contains a continuous increase in volume or tempo, makes your heartbeat synchronize with it. - The enzymes make human organs start to digest the body. And they then team up with microbes, and the process of decomposition begins. - All plants, animals, your food, even your car contain pieces of distant stars. - This fist-sized organ beats around 115 thousand times a day and pumps 2,000 gallons of blood. In a lifetime, the number of its beats can reach 3 billion!

If You Eat an Avocado a Day For a Month, Here's What Will Happen to You
 
09:20
What Will Happen to Your Body If You Eat Avocado Every Day. The avocado is a unique fruit with multiple nutritional and health benefits. How would your body respond if you ate just one avocado a day? In fact, it would transform your life as you’d get amazing results: your breath will be fresh at all times, your kidneys and liver will work more efficiently, your blood pressure will become lower, just to name a few. There's a miraculous mineral to be found in avocados: potassium. It helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs. Avocados are also a great source of vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is known for its involvement in the creation of collagen and elastin, which help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. Vitamin E takes it to a whole new level, reducing the damage of excessive sun exposure and counteracting aging. TIMESTAMPS How to get fresh breath. 0:37 How to make your kidneys work more efficiently. 1:26 How to decrease your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. 2:20 How to make your liver function more efficiently. 3:16 How to lower your blood pressure. 4:13 How to improve your vision. 5:07 How to get extra protection from cancer. 6:03 How to lose weight easily. 6:52 How to make your skin glow. 7:49 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Avocado has antibacterial and antioxidant flavonoids, which kill bacteria in your mouth and make your breath fresh. -Potassium helps your system keep a healthy fluid balance through chemical channels for cells and organs. A good fluid balance allows your kidneys to function better. -Eating avocados regularly lowers the “bad” LDL cholesterol and blood triglycerides by up to 22% and increases the “good” HDL cholesterol by up to 11%. -This fruit is actually one of the best products for a liver-friendly diet, and that's all thanks to its ability to help your body produce glutathione! The liver desperately craves this antioxidant to filter out harmful substances and protect its cells from damage. -Potassium in avocados helps regulate the fluid balance benefits your blood pressure too. In this case, potassium prevents osteoporosis and, most importantly, lowers your blood pressure. -Avocados are high in antioxidants, especially carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect our eyes against harmful blue light. -The ability of avocados to give that extra bit of protection from cancer comes from the carotenoids and monounsaturated fat they contain, both of which make their own contribution to the impressive reduction of cancer. -Avocados are rich in fiber, which is essential for making those unwanted pounds disappear. Fiber is incredibly filling and digests slowly. -Thanks to vitamins C and E avocados help to maintain the skin's elasticity and firmness. Avocados are also rich in omega-9 fatty acids, and they’re crucial for maintaining moisture in the epidermis and regenerating epidermal cells.

What's Graphene And Why It'll Soon Take Over The World
 
11:18
What is graphene? What is it used for? The most amazing thing about this semi-metal of the future is the fact that you can produce it yourself in your living room! What is graphene, and why is it so amazing? One of the things that makes graphene so cool is that it’s the thinnest material you can imagine. It's just one atom thick! This means this material is mathematically 2-dimensional. And you can still hold this single layer of atoms in your hands! Surprisingly, graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! TIMESTAMPS: Why graphene is so amazing 1:05 How graphene was discovered 1:48 How expensive graphene is 2:15 What the properties of graphene are 2:41 How graphene can be used 4:50 Can you make graphene at home? 9:59 #graphene #thinnestmaterial #graphenelayers Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! - Dr. Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim discovered the wonder-material in 2004 at the University of Manchester. They were examining how efficient graphite is as a transistor. The story goes that graphene appeared thanks to sticky tape! - Graphene used to be incredibly expensive to manufacture. It cost a whopping $1,100 to produce enough graphene to cover the head of a pin. However, by the end of 2015, you could buy 0.35 oz of graphene for $1,000. - Graphene is incredibly stretchy. It can stretch as much as 25% of its length! This material is also really stiff. Actually, it’s the hardest material people know about — even harder than diamonds, and that says a lot! - One more great thing about graphene is its relationship with electricity. This material carries electricity more quickly, more precisely, and more efficiently than any other known material. - Graphene may be the answer to the water crisis many countries are facing. If we make membranes from graphene, they would be able to let water through while filtering out salt at the same time. - One layer of graphene is impressive enough. Can you imagine what you could achieve with 2 layers of this super material? Nothing short of incredibly strong body armor. - If producers start to use graphene in gadget manufacturing, we might end up with smartphones that can be bent in any direction. One of graphene’s main properties is its flexibility. - Graphene can be used in the beauty industry as well. It will be the perfect alternative to current hair dyes, most of which are still toxic and damaging to hair. - Well, you can potentially make graphene at home, provided you have enough time and patience to do so.

Why Queen Elizabeth II Always Carries Her Purse Everywhere
 
07:40
We all have our own unique, everyday routines. But it turns out that not only us mere mortals have our little quirks! Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II has habits she sticks to as well! Have you ever wondered why the Queen always carries her purse with her wherever she goes? There’s a practical explanation to this mysterious phenomenon: in her handbag, the Queen always has a pen, a lipstick, a mirror, her reading glasses, and some mints. But wait, there’s more to a simple purse than that! In the Queen's hands, it turns into a sort of social indicator which Her Majesty uses at different events and gatherings. That's how she lets the staff know her intentions!

Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - When the Queen is talking to someone and, in the process, starts to shift her purse from one hand to the other, it means she's ready to finish the discussion. - If you were having a conversation with the Queen, and she put her purse on the floor, that would be an ominous sign for you. This action means that Her Majesty isn't enjoying your little chat and needs a lady-in-waiting to give her a hand. - When Her Majesty travels, she’s typically accompanied by as many as 34 people, including her private secretary and his deputy, their secretaries, two dressers, a hairdresser, two ladies-in-waiting, a valet, press officers, eight police bodyguards, the Foreign Secretary and their people, and many others. - One more proof that Her Majesty likes traveling in comfort is the fact that she drinks only her Earl Grey tea and only from her monogrammed kettle. She has both these things in her baggage wherever she goes. - She only flies by private jets. As for the rest of the family, there’s a chance that you might see one of them on a commercial flight, probably even in economy class! - The Queen frowns upon open windows in Buckingham Palace. Well, to be precise, only the ones that decorate the outside of the building. - The Queen's extensive wardrobe has long become the stuff of legends. Not only does Her Majesty prefer brilliant, vibrant colors and classic styles, but she also can't appear in public in the same outfit or even color two times in a row! - One more paradox is that Her Majesty loves raspberries but won’t eat them in public. The explanation for this mystery is simple: tiny raspberry seeds often get stuck in teeth, and that's unacceptable for the Queen. - She hates the sound ice cubes make inside a glass. At the same time, if they’re not ice cubes, but ice balls, Her Majesty doesn't have anything against them. - In her handbag, along with other necessary things, the Queen always has... a hook! She attaches the hook under tables every time she needs to hang her bag.

TIMESTAMPS Leopard Seal 0:41 Pandas 1:26 Swan 2:25 Anteater 3:08 Tasmanian devil 3:57 Elephant 4:46 Pufferfish 5:28 Poison dart frog 6:05 Dolphin 6:39 Slow Loris 7:30 BONUS FACT 8:24 SUMMARY - Leopard Seals have a very diverse diet: they eat krill, different kinds of fish, marine mammals and King and even Emperor penguins! So, basically, there is almost nothing they can’t eat! - Pandas look so innocent and helpless that they became a symbol of peace and kindness. Their dark eyes make you want to hug them! However, you’d better not mess with a panda. If you accidentally cross its territory, a panda can seriously hurt you. - There was even a case when a man drowned because of a swan attack. A bird charged the man’s boat and capsized it, and after the man tried to swim to the shore, the swan blocked him. - Anteaters look rather scruffy and definitely harmless. However, pay attention to its claws. It mainly uses them to excavate food, but it won’t hesitate to use them to defend itself. - Tasmanian devils are nocturnal animals which means that they only hunt at night. They have a perfect sense of smell and very good coordination, so it’s very difficult to see them. - We see more and more human deaths caused by elephant attacks. It looks like a planned revenge. Now they are responsible for about 500 human deaths per year. - You have probably heard about the famous Japanese mean called Fugu. This kind of dinner may be your last if the chef makes even the slightest mistake while removing the liver. - There are a few types of poison frogs, and the level of toxicity varies. They can be yellow, copper green, red, blue and black, but the most dangerous kind is golden. It can easily kill ten adults if they touch it. - Dolphins definitely have high intelligence, which, unfortunately sometimes results in harm. They don’t kill humans often, but we recommend thinking twice before approaching dolphins especially in the wild. - Slow Loris is the only venomous primate in the world! If this cutie bites you, you should know that it wasn’t an accident. - If you are really fond of cute animals, but they turn out to be outrageously dangerous, you can get toy versions of them. Such cute things will make your day better.

The Richest Woman In America Spent $5 a Week And Had 1 Dress
 
10:27
Imagine this: one morning you wake up a multi-millionaire. What would you do? Buy a yacht or a garage full of sports cars; maybe a diamond tiara and a cruise around the world? All this would sound tempting to just about anyone, but not Hetty Green, who was the richest woman in America and wore one black dress for years. Why did she become so thrifty? And why did people call her "The Witch of Wall Street"? Here's her story full of eccentricities. Other videos you might like: The Story of the Hope Diamond Which Ruined Its Owners' Lives https://youtu.be/uo4RzWdBerY 13 Ways Poor People Waste Money But Rich Don't https://youtu.be/rTU4XDroJi4 11 Billionaires With the Cheapest Lifestyle Ever https://youtu.be/6ofFvvckeOw TIMESTAMPS: The early days of Henrietta Green 0:37 Coming into an inheritance 2:46 Hetty’s stinginess takes off 3:50 The split up 5:59 Going even more frugal 6:40 She wore black for the rest of her life 8:00 #richestwoman #HettyGreen #WitchofWallStreet Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: -Instead of playing with dolls, Hetty learned all about the stock market and business from the age of six. Hetty invested $1000 out of the $1,200 spending allowance she was given at 16 to mingle in New York society. She helped him manage the family business, and was becoming more and more of a financial guru. -In 1865, Mr. Robinson passed away, leaving his daughter a million dollars and a trust fund of four million dollars. 5 years after her aunt had passed away, Hetty received around half a million dollars that she happily invested in “greenbacks” – bonds issued by the government. -America’s wealthiest woman would bargain with shop owners over every price. She reused envelopes. When it got cold, she wouldn’t buy winter clothes, but wore layers of newspapers under her coat to keep herself warm. She refused to pay the bills from lawyers and doctors. -Hetty was positive financial and family affairs were two completely different things and refused to do so. Her husband went bankrupt after she had refused to help him, and the couple split up. -Hetty and her daughter moved from apartment to apartment since Hetty still feared someone was after her, trying to poison her. While the millionaire herself would normally have oatmeal or eggs, she’d always feed her dog good steak. -After Edward passed away in 1902, she swore she would only wear black for the rest of her life. Some people believe the reason she did it was practical – black needs less cleaning than other colors.

40 Awesome Cat Facts to Understand Them Better
 
12:14
Cats have lived with humans for more than 4,000 years but we still don’t know everything about them because they are really mysterious creatures. Did you know that cats can make up to 100 different sounds? Or that they can't taste sweets? Or that some ginger tabby cats have freckles around their mouth and even on their eyelids? And these aren't the only surprising facts about cats you may have missed! Other videos you might like: HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CAT BETTER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6yBbBRr8Y& 12 Signs Your Pet is Crying for Help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFtSoWyxqHU& Why Cats Lie on Their Backs When They See You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkaZSwCpDVE& TIMESTAMPS: What cat cannot be domesticated 0:34 How many sounds cats can make up 1:11 How old your сat is in human years 1:38 How cats sweat 2:14 A cat’s sense of smell 2:47 Why cats don't like sweets 3:23 Do cats have belly buttons? 3:58 What cats bring prosperity and happiness 4:36 Do cats like music? 5:10 Feline mayor 5:57 The biggest cat mama 6:30 Cats with freckles 7:26 The first cat to go to space 7:57 The stationmaster cat 8:38 Cat intelligence 9:18 Good touch, bad touch 9:47 How cats purr 10:28 The truth about cat people 11:00 What percentage of kittens are adopted 11:32 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Cats have been domesticated for about 4,000 years! Before that, they were one of the greatest hunters feared by numerous species. - A group of kittens is often called a kindle; a group of adult cats is called a clowder. A female cat is referred to as a queen, and a male cat is known as a tom. - Cats only meow at humans. With other animals, they hiss, spit, and purr — but never meow. They also tend to greet each other by touching noses. - The problem of acne is pretty common among cats. They usually end up developing blackheads on their chins, which is widely known as feline acne. - Most cats tend to spend about two-thirds of their day sleeping. So the average 9-year-old cat has been fully awake for only 3 years of its life! Cats also spend about one-third of their waking hours cleaning themselves up. - One of the reasons why cats clean themselves so often is to lick your scent off! When your cat rubs against you from nose to tail, it wants to mark you as its own. - Cats have rather sensitive stomachs, so you should be very careful about your furry friend's menu. Never give your cat onion, garlic, green tomatoes, chocolate, grapes, or raisins. - Your cat always understands when you say its name…it just chooses to ignore you! Specialists believe this happens because, historically, cats haven't been domesticated to listen to people's orders — unlike dogs. - A cat's whiskers aren't there to make them extra cute! They’re covered in numerous nerve cells and blood vessels. - Cats have a special reflective layer in their eyes called the tapetum lucidum. This layer easily magnifies incoming light and allows cats to see around 6 times better than we do in the dark and low light. - A cat's heart beats way faster than ours with about 110 to 140 beats every single minute. - A cat's cerebral cortex contains 300 million neurons. Just for comparison, dogs have only around 160 million. - It's a natural instinct for a kitten to cover its poop. If your cat doesn't do that, this is its way of showing you who's the true head of the house. - Back in 2007, a calico cat named Tama became a station master and greeted passengers at Kishi Station. - Cats can easily jump about 6 times their own length! This is all thanks to the powerful muscles in their back legs, which allow them to jump onto any surface they like. - Biologically, a cat's brain is kinda similar to ours. We have almost identical brain regions that take care of our emotions, so there's a chance that you and your furry friend feel the same way sometimes. - In the cat world, the concept of left- or right-handedness is a thing too! Most cats are actually left-pawed!

Empty Tank at 41,000 Feet, So Pilots Did This
 
08:45
Imagine, you’re driving on a long stretch of highway when you run out of gas. This is not a good situation, but it's not critical. Now imagine the same scenario, only you’re a pilot flying a commercial jet full of people! That’s exactly what happened to a Canadian plane at a height of 41,000 feet... Other videos you might like: 11 Survival Tips from a Former Secret Agent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3K-SH7dGW0 What Would Happen If Plane Doors Opened? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S2_Plu0e2M& Pilots Reveal 16 Nuances That Make Your Flight Safe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVYXErxau-U& TIMESTAMPS: Miscalculation: pounds instead of kilos 😲 0:28 What to do if both engines are out 2:10 The most serious problem was... 4:03 People on the runway 5:38 How the pilots managed to stop that Boeing 6:36 What happened to the pilots after that 7:12 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The plane seemed to be having problems with the computer that manages fuel loading. Since it wasn’t working properly, the ground maintenance crew just calculated the necessary amount of fuel on their own. - Both the ground crew in Montreal and the flight crew had forgotten the fact that at the time, Canada was switching from the imperial system of measurement to metric. That's why all of Air Canada’s new planes were calibrated in metric units. - The plane was at a height of 41,000 feet when the first warning light flared up. The crew figured that the fuel pump in the left wing had failed, so they switched it off. However, a few minutes later, the second light came on. - The pilots desperately searched through the manuals to figure out how to deal with such an emergency. Unfortunately, there were no instructions on what to do if both engines are out. - But the most serious problem was the loss of hydraulic pressure. A pilot’s ability to control the aircraft decreases along with a drop in hydraulic pressure. - Maurice Quintal thought of the nearby Royal Canadian Air Force Base just 12 miles away in the town of Gimli. Even better, it was no longer in use! - But the pilots still weren't aware of the most terrifying thing about this situation. That abandoned military base wasn’t just sitting there empty and derelict – it’d been converted into a motorsports park and racetrack! - The people on the runaway didn't expect to see a gigantic plane approaching them at high speed. But hey saw it coming and got out of the way in time. - The whole incident was dubbed The Gimli Glider. And after receiving some heat from the airline for that initial fuel miscalculation, both pilots ended up receiving the Diploma for Outstanding Airmanship in 1985.

How Deep Can You Possibly Dig?
 
11:01
Do you remember that absolutely divine feeling you had as a child when you were digging in wet sand at the beach? Deeper and deeper... Have you ever wondered where you would have ended up if you’d kept digging without stopping? Great news! Even if you never managed to find out how far down your little tunnel could go, this video will tell you! TIMESTAMPS: What you'll find at a depth of 2.3 ft 0:58 At what depth we come across the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun 1:54 How long are roots of tropical forest plants 2:22 What did the Mole Man do 2:32 Beijing's Underground City 3:01 The Paris Catacombs 3:18 The deepest swimming pool in the world 3:41 The deepest metro station in the world 4:22 The deepest hotel room 4:50 The deepest road tunnel on Earth 5:22 The deepest natural shaft in the world 6:04 The deepest laboratory in the world 8:07 At what depth the deepest known multicellular organism dwells 8:42 The deepest point of the ocean 9:18 The deepest artificial hole on Earth 10:17 #deepesthole #marianatrench Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - At a depth of 2.3 ft, you'll find numerous mole tunnels and rabbit warrens. By the way, a mole can dig a tunnel longer than 65 ft in just one day! - Deep-burrowing species of earthworms can be spotted at a depth of 10 ft. One of them, Drawida grandis, can grow up to 3.5 ft long. - You can still find the roots of tropical forest plants if you dig 23 ft down. Tropical trees need such long roots to store water during dry periods. - When we arrive at a depth of 60 ft, we can see Beijing's Underground City. That's a subterranean bomb shelter consisting of a vast network of tunnels and underground rooms. It’s situated under the capital of China. - In Cappadocia, Turkey, there's an underground complex that probably dates back to the 7th century. Its name is Derinkuyu Underground City, and it's situated almost 280 ft below Earth’s surface. - The Channel Tunnel, connecting the UK with France, is situated at a depth of 377 ft. - The deepest railway tunnel is located at a depth of 787 ft. That's the maximum depth of the Seikan Tunnel in Japan that opened in 1988. - Even if we could get down to 1,001 ft, we’d still be in the danger zone for a B82 Earth-penetrating nuclear warhead. That's its maximum destructive depth. - At a depth of 3,800 ft, there's the deepest bat colony in the world. About 1,000 brown bats spend every winter in a zinc mine in New York. - About 5,920 ft down and we arrive at the deepest part of the 227-mile-long Grand Canyon. Its average depth is 5,282 ft. - The average depth of the oceanic crust is almost 20,000 ft. This is also the depth of the deepest known microbes. They were found in rocks below China's Songliao Basin. -The winner in the category of the deepest artificial hole on Earth is Z44-Chayvo Oil and Gas Well. This shaft is drilled down to a whopping 40,604 ft! That's 15 Burj Khalifas put on top of each other. The shaft is located in the Russian Far East.

10 Strange Facts About Cleopatra Teachers Never Told You
 
12:30
Whether you’ve seen her portrayed on the big screen, you learned about her in school, or probably a combination of both, Cleopatra is definitely one of the most well-known names out there! She was the last Egyptian pharaoh and without a doubt one of the most influential women in the history of humankind. But because the story of the queen’s life has been told in so many books and movies, it can be hard to separate historical facts from fiction. But we’re about to bust some of the most popular myths about Cleopatra and open your eyes to several peculiar facts of her real biography. TIMESTAMPS Cleopatra married two of her younger brothers. 1:15 Julius Caesar erected a statue of her in the Temple of Venus Genetrix. 2:40 Mark Antony once skipped an invasion to spend time with Cleo. 4:10 She wasn’t exactly a beauty. 5:14 Cleopatra wasn't just a ruler, she was a mother too. 5:56 She loved spending money, but not only on herself. 6:31 Cleopatra might not have died from a snake bite. 6:55 She could speak Egyptian Arabic. 7:40 Cleopatra's famous makeup was a sort of protection. 8:45 Cleopatra owned a perfume factory. 9:37 Bonus: Cleopatra spent money on a cocktail that would be equivalent to over $16 million today 10:21 #cleopatrafacts #cleo #juliuscaesar Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Cleopatra ended up marrying her little brother, Ptolemy XIII, who was just 10 at the time. After his death, which occurred several years later, she married her other brother, Ptolemy XIV. -Caesar erected a statue of Cleopatra in the Venus Temple in Rome. -Cleopatra showed up to her first meeting with Mark Antony dressed as the Greek goddess Aphrodite. To no surprise, Mark Antony was impressed, and that's how their partnership started. -Her contemporaries saw her beauty not so much in her looks but in her wit, character, and irresistible charisma. -While Cleopatra didn't have any children with her brothers, she did have kids from both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. -Cleopatra did spend around 50% of her share of the kingdom’s income on beauty and other luxuries. But she was also an extremely efficient ruler who cared about her people. -Ancient historian Strabo wrote that Cleopatra always had a comb soaked in poison with her, so she possibly could’ve killed herself with it. -People in Cleopatra's family spoke Greek and had Greek traditions. Cleopatra was the first in her family to accept the local culture, ancient customs, and Egyptian gods. -Cleopatra’s makeup contained 4 lead-based substances and was used to fend off eye infections, which were common in Ancient Egypt. -The ruins of Cleopatra’s perfume factory were found near Ein Gedi, which is situated on the Dead Sea. That place was also used as a beauty salon and spa. -Cleopatra once had a bet with Mark Antony that she could spend 10 million sesterces, equivalent to $16.7 million today on just one dinner.

Some Found an Underwater City Under the Bermuda Triangle
 
10:39
Learning mysteries and conspiracy theory stories can be a lot of fun. The only thing that’s even more fun, is checking the facts and trying to debunk them. And what else has more crazy theories swirling around it than the Bermuda Triangle? Can you guess which ones are true and which are fake? There are a lot of questions to answer. For example, can ocean whirlpools be guilty of all the disappearances happening in the Bermuda Triangle? What lurks in the depth of Blue Holes? Was there a city on the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle? Other videos you might like: Who Lives at the Bottom of the Bermuda Triangle? https://youtu.be/QOHVIMUuOPk A New Bermuda Triangle Theory Explains Its Mystery https://youtu.be/6SWMb4Oh5jY Who Lives In the Deepest Place On Earth? https://youtu.be/Sq4lbCC24js TIMESTAMPS: The bottomless ocean and vile whirlpools. 0:31 What lurks in the depth of Blue Holes? 2:00 The city on the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle 3:24 I’m Not Saying It's Aliens, But… 5:43 The Hutchison Effect 8:00 #BermudaTriangle #disappearingships #Bermudamyths Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: -The bottom of the ocean here is inconsistent. Every now and then, the otherwise sandy floor is replaced by giant dark holes. However, the whirlpools mostly appear in the inland Blue Holes, situated on the Island and not in the ocean. Even if a vortex could sink a small boat, it wouldn’t likely be an issue for big ships, let alone airplanes – they’re far above that in every possible meaning. -The local people of Andros Island, part of the Bahamas, have a legend in their folklore about a giant, vile octopus-like creature named Lusca. Some giant octopuses were seen, and even caught, nearby, though they weren’t nearly as big as the legendary creature. -The only giant things here are overstatements. There certainly aren’t any glass pyramids. Research showed that underlying ground layers beneath the Bimini Road feature nothing but bedrock, with no possible cavities in it. -One of these treasure hunters was lucky enough to come across a secret map, made from the orbit of the planet in the 60s, during one of the first flights into outer space. This map reveals lots of shipwreck coordinates in the Caribbean area. One of them wasn’t marked as a shipwreck, but as an “unidentified object”. -A lot of Bermuda Triangle stories feature reports, allegedly received from missing aircraft and ships. Some enthusiasts of this theory draw a line between it and the experimentations of Joseph Hutchison, who was trying to prove that electromagnetic fields can collide with each other and produce all kinds of disturbances to reality itself.

9 Secrets Airport Staff Don't Want You to Know
 
09:30
Only the people working at airports know how things really go down there, and they have many secrets they don’t want you to know. We’re about to change that and reveal 9 surprising truthful facts from airport world every traveler will like to know. Passengers’ most private “bits” that they would prefer to keep hidden are clearly displayed on the screen of powerful “naked scanners” at some airports. If it makes you feel any better, security personnel are obliged to destroy these images as soon as they’ve made sure that a person doesn't present any threat. Most airports have specific experts called profilers. These people practice what’s called SPOT, or the Screening Passengers by Observation Technique. Their job is to notice the non-verbal signs of anxiety, such as people licking their lips, itching, or looking around a lot. Special cameras that perform a similar task transmit the information to a computer and, in cases of dangerous levels of aggression, the suspect will be stopped by airport security for a detailed inspection. Before your luggage gets on the plane, it goes through five security levels, and one of them (besides scanning the contents) includes being checked by a special dog that can sniff out drugs or other dangerous chemicals. The menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance to plan its budget and save money. In fact, American Airlines managed to save $40,000 after they removed just one olive from every salad they served on their flights. One dispatcher has about five monitors, and the information on them is constantly changing since the monitors show weather conditions and information about other planes. Airport staff have to foot the bill for the tickets of passengers who have invalid visas or no visa at all and can’t be allowed into a foreign country. That's why the people at the check-in counters make sure you have a valid visa to the country of your destination because nobody wants to pay for your flight. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS They see us naked. 0:36 They’re specially trained to analyze “off” behavior. 2:10 They know how aggressive you are. 3:15 They have no idea what happens to your luggage once it leaves the airport. 4:07 They have dogs that check your bags. 5:18 Your food is cooked around the clock. 6:16 The airport controls the planes more than you’d think. 7:03 They most certainly will check the validity of your visa, no excuses. 7:44 They know what’s been in your hands. 8:20 SUMMARY -Special scanners that require passengers to lift their arms up when going through them actually let airport security see you completely naked. -“Profilers” work in both the main halls and in passport control and carefully analyze facial expressions, gestures, and behavior in order to detect suspicious people. -In a lot of big airports, there are special cameras that can determine if a person is drunk or under the influence of drugs. And even more advanced imaging technology can detect a certain level of aggression. -Baggage is sorted automatically: scanners scan the barcode and sort the baggage according to its destination. Airport staff don’t really care about where it goes and if it gets dirty on the way. -Dogs distinguish smells from 10,000 to 100,000 times better than people do and work as one of the 5 security levels your luggage goes through. -Giant airport kitchens work 24/7, and the menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance. -There are 3 types of air traffic controllers: en-route, terminal, and tower. Each of these dispatchers has their own specific area of responsibility. -If the airport staff finds out that your visa has expired or you just don’t have one when you enter their country, you’ll be deported by the same airline that brought you there. -Special “memorizing” machines can easily find traces of drugs or explosives on your hands.
