Some explaining to do

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.
