We Clap Differently Because of Social Media

A video I found interesting by Vsauce that talks all about clapping and how it originated.

I want to learn how to do that. I watched tutorials, but it’s so hard to perfect and I’m extremely slow. Does anyone know how to do this?

The Economic Cost of Obesity

Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 11.27.10 PM

This video recently came out about obesity in the United States and it’s relation to the socioeconomic status. After I watched the video, I noticed how many similarities there are between Kuwait and the States in relation to obesity. I tried posting it on the blog, but I couldn’t get it to work.

About the video that was created by AcademicEarth.org

According to Dr. James Hill, director of the Center of Human Nutrition at Colorado Health Sciences University, “Genes don’t make us obese. They allow us to be obese.” If our genes aren’t to blame for this rise in obesity, what is? Recent research suggests that socioeconomic class can impact our bodies as much as genetics, and may be a more accurate predictor for a variety of future health issues, including obesity. Check out this video to learn more about how American policies, like food subsidies, have had a direct role in driving our current obesity crisis.

What a Presenter Needs to Know

This is a very easy to follow type of video and it’s really helpful to watch if you have a presentation coming up. I love it when a video has someone speaking and doodling at the same time. It makes me pay attention more.

Camping in Kuwait

The video gives some tips on how to eat the food you love without regretting it afterwards. It’s easy to get tempted into eating fatty and juicy foods because they “taste” good. That is not an excuse. There are much healthier alternatives. It’s all about making the right decisions, especially when it comes to portion sizes.

CDZA – LOVE

I found what might be the coolest youtube channel ever. Not really. But anyways I have never seen a group so talented as CDZA. They take famous songs and mess up their lyrics or their tune. It’s so funny. I love how they never laugh when doing their videos. They’re so serious, which really adds to the humor in it. This is one of their videos that I just love! BTW, in order to actually laugh, you really need to know English songs, both old and new ones.

The Piano Guys

The Piano Guys are YouTube sensations that really captured my attention. I recently found out about them when they performed live on Jay Leno. They’re a group of five guys that are known for their amazing original music videos and covers.

This is some information I found on their website:

But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that has now brought them to their major label debut album, The Piano Guys, to be released on Sony Masterworks on October 2nd, 2012.

But just who are The Piano Guys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other three – Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart and Al van der Beek – are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys’ name comes from Anderson’s piano store in St. George, Utah, which was called The Piano Guys.

Here’s their version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Thank You YouTube

One reason I hate signing up for any gym is that I don’t show up most of the time. That’s because I get bored so easily, especially if I go alone. I usually listen to my iPod while using the machines, but lately it’s not enough of a distraction. I figured out a way to pass time like crazy. It’s to look up YouTube videos and watch them while using machines that don’t require your hands. I usually do that when I’m on the bike. The other day I watched a few videos and I ended up spending more time and burning more calories. Now, I have more motivation to go, even if it’s from videos on my iphone!

Fun Facts About Kuwait??

I found this video on youtube and I have no idea why it really aggravated me. I feel that some of the facts were over exaggerated and they’re not really “fun”. All it talks about is the fact that it’s a rich country. I think it’s missing out on other things, but I don’t know what exactly. What could be considered a fun fact about Kuwait?
