One of the best things about YouTube is the large number of videos that explain things. In addition to straightforward “how to” and instruction videos, there are also a large number that explain things, and I’ve shared many of those on this blog. Today, I have three.
The video below is by Hank Green of VlogBrothers.,”Why Does January First Start the New Year? – New Year's Explained” Pretty self evident, really, and explains in one video why January 1 is New Year’s Day.
Next up is Hank’s brother, John, who takes a more serious turn with, “Who Owns Oregon? Some Historical Context on the so-called Militia Occupation of Public Lands”. I think he makes some really good points, along with information the mainstream newsmedia hasn’t bothered to share.
Finally, the latest ASAP Science video, “The Science Of Motivation”. They also have a related video on their second channel, ASAP Thought, called “8 Simple Tips To Stay Motivated”. It’s worth a watch, too.
These are just three videos I’ve seen in the first couple weeks of this year, and from a couple of my favourite YouTube Channels. Chances are good I’ll share more over the course of the year.
