Coronavirus: Why we touch our faces and how to stop it
Several medical officials across the world have warned people to avoid touching their face as a key way to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Often when issuing the warning, they've gone on to - you guessed it - put their hands on their face. But why do we touch our faces in the first place? And is it that easy to just stop doing it all of a sudden?

Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany. Aerial 360 video in 5K
Don't forget that this is 360 video: you can change the angle of view. Neuschwanstein Castle and St. Coloman Church, Germany. Neuschwanstein is first and foremost a true fairy tale made of stone. The castle is located in Bavaria, near the town of Fussen. It became the prototype for the Sleeping Beauty castle in Disneyland Paris and a source of inspiration for Tchaikovsky's ballet "The Swan Lake". At the foot of a hill, just a couple kilometres away, there is another great landmark, St. Coloman Church.

8 Most Poisonous Insects in the World
A lot of people are afraid of insects. There is even a special name for this condition: entomophobia. Why is this fear so common among humans, even though insects are a hundred times smaller than us? In fact, this phobia has a fairly logical explanation, related to our natural instincts. After all, a large number of insects are extremely poisonous and even deadly. Today we will talk about them, because, as the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed.

9 Real Things That Defy the Laws of Physics
9 Real Things That Defy the Laws of Physics hello everyone let's be honest not everyone in school enjoys exact Sciences however you don't have to be an expert all know Newton's three laws off by heart to understand the basic principles of physics after all it's pretty easy to understand that under the influence of gravity objects for and a person can't fly without special devices wait a minute are you sure today we're going to be talking about situations where the laws of physics don't really apply let's get it on walking fish how do fish move even a child can answer this question they swim however this answer is not definitive first of all there are flying fish of course they don't fly around the planet looking for a nice place to stay but they are capable of performing some beautiful stunts in the air but there's also something else look at these images of fish moving along a cliff against the flow of water what is this an upside down video some kind of elaborate fake well none of those answers are correct it's actually a very unique species of fish actually several species in Central and South America for example you can find the sucker mouths armored catfish 'as the mouths of these freshwater fish works as a suction cup which allows them to stick to the surface and stay there despite the fast flow however this is not enough to move quickly on the rocks without falling off but this fish is easily outperformed by an unusual fish from Thailand the cave angel fish thanks to the peculiarities of its body structure this fish is able to walk and not only on horizontal surfaces but also at a 90 degree angle this is made possible by an unusual pelvic girdle which allows the fish to move its limbs diagonally like a lizard but there's more to it than that among the marine fauna there are other specimens that can walk with their pectoral or pelvic fins for example lumpfish but even so only the unusual thai fish can move on any surface crawling around like a salamander by the way scientists believe that studying them can help them better understand how 430 million years ago after a mass extinction some animals came out of the sea onto land and traded their fins for lakes levitation now how do you explain this the guy made two tinfoil boats of different sizes put them in a container and they just started floating in the air the amazing thing is if you take the air out of the container and pour it into the boat the boat then starts to sink so what is it the thing is that the vessel is filled with a substance called sulfur hexafluoride which is a heavy gas but why doesn't that substance mix with the air well because sulfur hexafluoride is five times heavier than air it can't get out of the vessel for the same reason the aluminium boat stays on top of the heavy gas layer instead of falling down some call this trick the transparent water experiments by the way do you know about helium balloons one knows that if you breathe in the air from them your voice becomes high in squeaky but if you breathe in sulfur hexafluoride the sound of your voice will be low and hush a bit like Darth Vader's I find your lack of faith disturbing each field every material on earth has its own melting and combustion points right well not really well originally yes but thanks to modern inventions this statement is no longer relevant in 1993 a British television show showed something incredible an inventor called Morris Ward presented an innovative material known as starlight to demonstrate its properties the British inventor covered a chicken-egg with the shielding material he then took a blowtorch with the temperature of over 2000 degrees Celsius and exposed the coated egg to the flame for several minutes at the end of the experiment walls took the egg out and cracked it as if nothing had happened both the shell and the interior were completely intact as if it were a regular raw wreck from the store so what is the secret to the mysterious mixture Lord Himself claims to have worked several years on his invention mixing various heat-resistant plastics and trying to find the best combination nevertheless the inventor never revealed the full composition of the mixture saying only that it includes 21 polymers and a small amount of ceramics what's surprising is the ward wasn't a chemist either in fact II didn't know much about science at all the British inventor decided to create this compound after a planed fire in Manchester in 1985 at the time 55 people on board of Boeing 737 died of asphyxiation in less than a minute from toxic smoke but then why hasn't there been a revolution in the construction industry worldwide since the creation of star lights very simple Lord was unable to reach an agreement with the British Department of Defense or any private companies the amateur chemist was very afraid that the composition of his mixture would be revealed and was not willing to negotiate in the end no one was able to unravel the secrets and after Ward's death in 2011 the story of starlight seems to be finally over hydrophobic materials you've probably seen online ads for hydrophobic shoes sprays it's a very useful invention for people who live in humid regions [Music] but scientists at the University of Rochester in New York have developed something even better they've created a technology that turns any material into a hydrophobic element forever without the need for additional treatments in the future the secret of this revolutionary technology is treating the materials with lasers using micro and nano structures a certain pattern with a certain depth is applied to the desired surface the invention can be described as truly revolutionary and its field of application is not limited to the production of clothing fabrics in fact these materials can be used for example to create the wings and fuselage of aircraft this completely eliminates the risk of ice formation incidentally a few years ago scientists perfected this invention thanks to hydrophobic technologies they've invented a way of treating metal surfaces that prevent objects from sinking how does it work structures applied to the surface are able to capture and retain air which creates an air bubble around the object immersed in water this is what pushes the metal to the surface in the future this may help create unsinkable ships memory metal what happens to metal when it's subjected to pressure right it changes shape like almost any solid material however there are also exceptions to this rule this material is known as nitinol and it is an alloy of titanium and nickel in almost equal proportions this metal is much more elastic than regular metals and retains the memory of its original shape producing this alloy is not easy though but its unique qualities make it very popular in the market [Music] listen all is used to produce artificial satellites antennas fuses boilers bone implants placeholder pins and even jewelry nitinol can also be used in the production of perpetual motion machines this was first done by American engineer art banks in 1973 the main elements of the original device was a wheel with spokes similar to the one that you see on the screen another components of the engine is the nitinol wire loops which are bathed with cold and hot water nitinol reacts to the temperature changes in the cold cycle the loops ends come closer and in the hot cycle the end straights an ounce which makes the wheel turn this engine is not used in industry but thanks to its properties it's really able to work forever if the temperature for water in the tanks remains the same stone in the air this installation in Myanmar attracts crowds of tourists every year many of them believe that the golden rock or as it's called earnest homeland that keo keo pagoda has a divine nature [Music] legend has it that it was placed on a rock fight to Burmese spirits two and a half thousand years ago the main version claims that the pagoda has the hair of the Buddha himself inside which prevents the stone from sliding well the temptation to believe that this structure was created by divine beings is really great when you look at it how can a seven-meter rocks stay on the edge of a cliff for so many years almost without touching it well honestly scientists have not been able to find a definitive answer to that some geologists believe that the golden rocks the result of a volcanic disturbance but most people except the stones divine origin dude are you looking for new technologies and great gadgets are your thoughts focused on the future deal off huge vehicles and can't imagine your life without robots around here and visit tech zone and you'll find all this and more the link

Wolves and Even Bears Are Afraid of This Evil Beast
Wolves and Even Bears Are Afraid of This Evil Beast hello everyone what do you think of when you hear about scary animals perhaps lions or Tigers or maybe even an aggressive bison or maybe sharks although they're technically fish no today we'll be talking about different kinds of living creatures they are more than capable of scaring other animals but not thanks to their huge size or sharp fangs wants to know more about them and let's get it on [Music] mustelids all of these animals belong to the mustelids family and look ok let's be honest they look adorable fluffy fur cute ears beady eyes seems like a perfect pet right they might look cute but they're considered one of the fiercest most ferocious and bloodthirsty predators in their desire to catch their prey these animals will stop at nothing they move with amazing speed they're always hungry and they attack animals much larger than themselves for example an adult hair or capercaillie they might not be strong enough to kill it but they'll try anyway what can we say even when they see a man weasels and our minds don't usually run away but take a fighting stance and can even attack him of course this attack won't be lethal but it will certainly hurt giant trevally many birds eat fish and this will not surprise anyone but what if it goes the other way round the giant trevally as a predator living in the coal reef ecosystem the largest of these species can reach more than one and a half meters in length and weigh under 80 pounds the giant trevally eats fish shellfish and crustaceans and the remains of turtles and dolphins were found in the stomach's of some especially large species with their size they can prey on animals this big but this is not all the trevally can suddenly jump out to the water and catch unsuspecting birds dragging them underwater we shall be relieved that this fish is still not big enough to consider feasting on a man black footed cats this desert predator might look like a well-fed pet with an unusual color it's easy to imagine a black-footed cat lying on an armchair or scratching post butts do not be deceived by the looks in facts this cutie is a bloodthirsty predator and a tireless hunter although it's considered the smallest among African cats on average this miniature cat kills fourteen small animals over just one night it's unlikely that there's at least one mammal capable of boasting the same achievements this is because the cat needs to eat at least 250 grams of food per day which is 1/6 of its average weight this is a small but skillful a very aggressive fluffy killer there is even a legend according to which a black-footed cat can kill a giraffe if it bites is jugular vein it's not to believe something like that could ever happen but if we assume that this cat suddenly decided to eat a giraffe well most likely they'd stand no chance moreover people don't know much about black footed cats either these animals are very secretive polar bear perhaps it's not a secret to anyone that almost any bear is dangerous not only for humans but also for other animals it can catch and eat everything that looks or smells good enough without exception an appreciation for what this animal is the polar bear hunts only on the ice mainly seals ringed seals and other marine animals throughout the year polar bears follow the ice cover and they do it for a good reason it's easy to blend in with the ice when you have white fur in such conditions it's simply impossible to hide from polar bears even in the ice cold water polar killers can attack anyone if they are hungry enough scientists know cases when polar bears have even hunted walruses to help you understand how challenging that battle is here are a few figures polar bears weigh 400 to 450 kilos on average while four walruses the average is 800 to 1700 kilos could this stop the formidable predator not a chance yes in a fair battle that polar bear will most likely not be able to win neither in water nor on land but this doesn't mean that he won't try if the herd doesn't defend itself it will panic and run into the water and this is the perfect moment for the bear to attack true the likelihood of a successful outcome is approximately 50% but for life in the wild this is good enough to try drongo unlike other animals in our video African Drago birds are not cruel predators that can tear their prey to pieces no they are the main tricksters of the animal world you thought only people can deceive others well jongo can often be seen accompanying huge herds of large animals these birds like to eat insects flying around the drongos diet is quite diverse to beetles worms manta sees butterflies and even scorpions everything that can't crawl away or fly away fast enough to escape from a sharp beak of the bird but the main thing about the drongo is their wits they know how to imitate the voices of other birds and they do it so masterfully that they can put parents to shame Jon goes use their skills to get food that or brother steal it from unsuspecting meerkats funny animals from the Mongoose family yeah the ones that stand on their hind legs and live in large communities they communicate with each other with the help of certain sounds by which they distinguish each other and alerts about the danger if a meerkat spots a predator he immediately informs the others and everyone hides have you already guessed Howard wrong nose make use of this that's right they imitate the warning signal and when the meerkats rushed to hide they calmly collect their prey Hey and so for that this intelligent bird changes its voice every time the meerkats realized that they were tricked and stopped running away some drongos may even warn animals about a real danger a couple of times in order to earn their trust yes that's just how tricky they are however sometimes the drongos take it easy and literally snatch food from the small meerkats who've not yet learned to be vigilant honey badger if you've been surfing the internet for a long time then you've probably heard the phrase the honey badger doesn't care at one time it almost became a meme and actually there is some truth behind this statement the honey badger is a distant relative of badgers and weasels and it lives in Africa Southwest Asia and India and as virtually no enemies in the wild in any case there are no animals who would even risk hunting them and this is not surprising because the honey badger is a very aggressive and very brave predator that seems to be able to handle anything because that's right the honey badger doesn't care about anything he was even mentioned as the world's most fearless creature in the 2002 Guinness Book of Records the thick skin of the honey badger is so strong the most predators can't bite through it the porcupine needles and even poisonous snake seats are not a threat to our new battery though it seems that nothing can hurt it honestly it shouldn't be called a honey badger but a badger of death the honey badger eats almost anything honey berries roots larvae insects frogs turtles rodents snakes including poisonous ones birds in their eggs and even small Cubs of other predators he devours all parts of his prey - including skin hair feathers meat and bones no exceptions because the honey badger is always hungry this animal is known for its cruelty and endurance as well the honey badger even attacks opponents many times it's so nice Lions not scared hyenas not a problem sheep and goats no big deal horses or buffaloes they were probably in the wrong neighborhood this is the territory of the honey badger poisonous snakes are also on his menu the honey badger can do anything when he's hungry for example he'll climb in thorny Bush to catch a mouse hiding there without hesitation ouch I look very nasty but as you already know the honey badger doesn't care if he wants to they'll even hunt small wild dogs so the adult species I'll have to hide the kids deeper in burrows otherwise that we hunt it down by the honey badger the honey badger can also get anywhere and then get out of there without any trouble - if he needs to go somewhere no walls or gratings will hold it the honey badger is not only it's in Asia but also a smart animal who can use improvised materials like stones sticks tires and dirts to achieve its goal for example to get out of the pen and have a good bite you've probably already realized that hunger can make the honey badger - absolutely incredible things even eating honey looks like a test of strength because the bees of course are not happy that their hive was ruined but the honey badger doesn't care if he wants honey he will get it and numerous painful bites will not bother him what is B venom for an animal that can survive the boasts of a cobra or a black member and this is not a joke for a honey badger toxins that are fatal to humans are like sleeping pills if Chuck Norris was an animal he'd definitely be a honey badger dude are you looking for new technologies and great gadgets are your thoughts focused on the future do you laugh huge vehicles and can't imagine your life without robots around you then visit tech zone and you'll find all this and more the link is in the description you interested great [Music] you

Video Script: what emotions is my body having at this point how about anger and rage and our anger and rage useful well if the guys were here right now stealing the bags then anger and rage would be incredibly useful why is life so ******* difficult when it's not when we live in the easiest times ever we live in temperature-controlled houses so what's happening today is we're we're quite often facing these stresses that aren't actually real I mean they're very real in your body but they're not actually real life threatening stresses does this make sense my wife and I haven't been on tour for six months traveling around the world we've been building schools in Africa we've been teaching workshops around the world we've been doing really important work we arrived home and we had almost everything we owned with us because we'd been on the road for six months so we had I think it was seven suitcases full of everything we owned and our normal routine was to arrive home and halfway home we'd stop at the grocery store and we'd go in and get groceries because the house has nothing we haven't in there for six months and we'd stock up on groceries we come out so we go in and we get our groceries and we come out and I've got the groceries so I come to the back of the car and I open the car to put the groceries in but I know this is gonna be difficult because the bags are all in there I don't know how I'm gonna do it but I'm already thinking what I can move around and I open it up and I look down and I go oh oh he's moved two bags great I can put where did he move them to he didn't move them they're gone somebody has stolen everything we have every scrap of clothing all the computers cameras passports credit cards money heirlooms I mean everything was in these bags and I'm looking at so it's gone and suddenly my wife catches on and she just loses it she's just screaming and crying and I'm looking in the back of the car what do you what emotions is my body having at this point how about anger and rage and our anger and rage useful well if the guys were here right now stealing the bags then anger and rage would be incredibly useful but they're gone there's nothing I can do anger and rage are not useful in body just wants to do anger and rage what would help right now calm so I try to access calm but it's not available in the app store can't download calm it's just not coming and I started thinking about this stuff and I just got to this place noise like you know what we are truly gonna look back at this day and laugh one day we're gonna so we may as well do it now guys imagine this I'm in the parking lot I'm still standing looking and and I'm okay I'm actually okay with it I'm totally okay with it and then I start thinking yeah am i insane how did I do this and then I realize I've done everything that I've been writing about I've done everything that I've been talking about I've done everything that I've researched I've created super consciousness in that moment I turned to my wife don't I look calm and she goes you do how did you do that I know this is gonna sound crazy but you know that you and I would have just jumped right back into work you know that when we got home right you would have done all your catching up and I would have done on like a you know that now for the next two weeks all we can do is hang out watch movies walk on the beach that's all we can do there's nothing else she goes that does sound good she goes you've planned the whole thing out I go yeah it's pretty cool isn't it she goes it's not cool but it's not as bad as I thought it was the longer we stand there and contemplate it the more adrenaline we start to produce and the more adrenaline we start to produce the more negative we start to become because it's safer that way when events happen we have to be conscious about our response too often we let our bodies take over and it's in thinking about that I developed something that we call the hindsight window it's the period of time between an event that happens your life that feels bad and then one day when you realize it was actually good it's like that moment where somebody comes along says you're fired and in that moment it hurts and it's painful and it's terrible and then like a year later you look back you go thank God every note of life no matter how sharp or how flat is just another note in a perfect symphony that is your life life is happening for you all the time clean up your past if there are things that you're still holding on to that you're angry about a resentful about then find a way to assess a different meaning about those things and look at how they serve you we didn't come into this life for it to be easy we came into this life for us to get stronger every step of the way look at the entirety of it the bad event and all of the events inside and go you know what I can't delete that without losing all and then look at the things that trigger you right now just say we'll wait a second why would I give my power up to external events why would I give my power up to somebody else I don't want to be triggered like that and figure out how to prevent those things from happening don't be that person when the toughest things are happening when the hardest things are taking place that is the most important time to be conscious and choose your emotional response and I think if you can do that then like I said it's not that life gets easier but it's like it suddenly starts feeling easier and stuff comes along and it hits you and you go game on

Video Script: I dropped out of the University and I got dropped from the rugby team it became a shut-in in my parents house unable to leave and all of this caused me to slide into a depression now these feelings lasted for months until my friends insisted that I join them to live and work in a new town for the summer puddling then did I start to feel like I was coming out of my fog and after that summer I made a decision to only surround myself with people that inspired me I didn't know it then but that one small decision would completely change the rest of my life and what kid came to mind his name is Johnny I said Johnny let's make a movie the problem was we had no idea what we wanted to make a movie about there were so many things that we wanted to do but we hadn't done them because they were buried we were paired by work by school by life and we had moments of inspiration but eventually those became buried by the day-to-day we asked the question what do you want to do before you die and with that we made a list of our buried dreams right we just decided to make the most epic bucket list of all time so if anything were possible what would you do and the list items that I was convinced were impossible have somehow been checked off while we would make our own TV show right at number one New York Times bestseller tell a judge you want the truth you can't handle the truth walk away from explosion in slow motion and have a beer with Prince Harry we also made a promise every item we crossed off our bucket list we'd help a complete stranger do something on their list I wanted to find a story in Utah a story of helping someone else do something they want to do and we found an incredible story with the help of the University and it's proof that sometimes it doesn't take much to make a huge impact we have this really cool thing for you tonight because you're such an amazing person we know how much you love basketball yes they made you your own Jersey [Music] if he can do that I can do anything so oddly enough it's not these big list items that mean the most it's been the times when we've helped other people do what they love that remain the highlight and it all started with the bucket list we asked the question what do you want to do before you die and the list items that I was convinced were impossible have somehow been checked off list items like number 95 play basketball with President Obama at the White House sit with Oprah and we even crossed off have a beer with Prince Harry just know that there will be ups and there will be downs there will be times when you struggle we're all human beings and when you hit that struggle know this you are not alone our struggles can be our strengths when we embrace them rather than try to hide them because this is our true self and who you truly are is exactly who you need to be now take a second to think about your secret dream all right what is it now that you're thinking about it how do you accomplish it I only know five things here are the five steps to make it be impossible impossible write down your dream you take an idea and you make it real you're effectively breathing life into your dreams you've begun to prioritize your goals studies show that people that write down their goals are 40% more likely to succeed it's an easy 40 percent take it if you don't talk about your dreams no one can help you that guarantee help will show up in those unexpected ways some people don't talk about their biggest dreams because they're afraid of what other people might think or they're afraid of failure well failure is usually a course correction to success persist you fail because you stop trying success depends on consistency of effort as much as it does of quality of work you can produce great work and not have it recognized trying again and again makes all the difference step 4 take moonshots quite simply a big dream motivates you to get out of bed every morning and it attracts the best people and best talent by your you want those people standing next to you and finally step 5 give when people see you out in the world helping others they want to help you Jim Carrey says the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is it's the times when I stepped into someone else's life in a moment that means so much to them like our friend Doug that I know will stick with me until I die by doing what you love you inspire other people to do what they love and that ripple effect goes far beyond what you'll ever know it's time for you to track your true original course because today is the youngest you will ever be you

This equation will change how you see the world
The logistic map connects fluid convection, neuron firing, the Mandelbrot set and so much more. Video Script: what's the connection between a dripping faucet the Mandelbrot set a population of rabbits thermal convection in a fluid and the firing of neurons in your brain it's this one simple equation this video is sponsored by fast hosts who are offering UK viewers the chance to win a trip to South by Southwest if they can answer my question at the end of this video so stay tuned for that let's say you want to model a population of rabbits if you have X rabbits this year how many rabbits will you have next year well the simplest model I can imagine is where we just multiplied by some number the growth rate R which could be say 2 and this would mean the population would double every year and the problem with that is it means the number of rabbits would grow exponentially forever so I can add the term 1 minus X to represent the constraints of the environment and here I'm imagining the population X is a percentage of the theoretical maximum so it goes from 0 to 1 and as it approaches that maximum then this term goes to 0 and that constrains the population so this is the logistic map xn plus 1 is the population next year and xn is the population this year and if you graph the population next year versus the population this year you see it is just an inverted parabola it's the simplest equation you can make that has a negative feedback loop the bigger the population gets over here the smaller it'll be the following year so let's try an example let's say we're dealing with a particularly active group of rabbits so R equals two point six and then let's pick a starting population of 40% of the maximum so point four and then times 1 minus 0.4 and we get 0.62 four okay so the population increased in the first year but what we're really interested in is the long term behavior of this population so we can put this population back into the equation and to speed things up you can actually type two point six times answer times one - answer get point six one so the population dropped a little hit it again point six one nine point six one three point six one seven point six one five point six one six point six one five and if I keep hitting Enter here you see that the population doesn't really change it has stabilized which matches what we see in the wild populations often remain the same as long as births and deaths are balanced now I want to make a graph of this iteration you can see here that it's reached an equilibrium value of point six one five now what would happen if I change the initial population I'm just going to move this slider here and what you see is the first few years change but the equilibrium population remains the same so we can basically ignore the initial population so what I'm really interested in is how does this equilibrium population vary depending on are the growth rate so as you can see if I lower the growth rate the equilibrium population decreases that makes sense and in fact if R goes below one well then the population drops and eventually goes extinct so what I want to do is make another graph where on the x axis I have R the growth rate and on the y axis I'm plotting the equilibrium population the population you get after many many many generations okay for low values of R we see the populations always go extinct so the equilibrium value is zero but once our hits 1 the population stabilizes on to a constant value and the higher R is the higher the equilibrium population so far so good but now comes the weird part once our passes three the graph splits in two why what's happening well no matter how many times you iterate the equation it never settles on to a single constant value instead it oscillates back and forth between two values one year the population is higher the next year lower and then the cycle repeats the cyclic nature of populations is observed in nature too one year there might be more rabbits and then fewer the next year and more again the year after as our continues to increase the fork spreads apart and then each one splits again now instead of oscillating back and forth between two values populations go through a four year cycle before repeating since the length of the cycle or period has doubled these are known as period doubling bifurcation z' and as R increases further there are more period doubling bifurcation z' they come faster and faster leading to cycles of 8 16 32 64 and then at R equals three point five seven chaos the population never settles down at all it bounces around as if at random in fact this equation provided one of the first methods of generating random numbers on computers it was a way to get something unpredictable from a deterministic machine there is no pattern here no repeating of course if you did know the exact initial conditions you could calculate the values exactly so they are considered only pseudo-random numbers now you might expect the equation to be chaotic from here on out but as R increases order returns there are these windows of stable periodic behavior amid the chaos for example at R equals 3 point 8 3 there is a stable cycle with a period of 3 years and as R continues to increase it splits into 6 12 24 and so on before returning to chaos in fact this one equation contains periods of every length 3750 1052 whatever you like if you just have the right value are looking at this bifurcation diagram you may notice that it looks like a fractal the large-scale features look to be repeated on smaller and smaller scales and sure enough if you zoom in you see that it is in fact a fractal arguably the most famous fractal is the Mandelbrot set the plot twist here is that the bifurcation diagram is actually part of the Mandelbrot set how does that work well quick recap on the Mandelbrot set it is based on this iterated equation so the way it works is you pick a number C any number in the complex plane and then start with Z equals 0 and then iterate this equation over and over again if it blows up to infinity well then the number C is not part of the set but if this number remains finite after unlimited iterations well then it is part of the Mandelbrot set so let's try for example C equals 1 so we've got 0 squared plus 1 equals 1 then 1 squared plus 1 equals 2 2 squared plus 1 equals 5 5 squared plus 1 equals 26 so pretty quickly you can see that with C equals 1 this equation is going to blow up so the number 1 is not part of the Mandelbrot set what if we try C equals negative 1 well then we've got 0 squared minus 1 equals negative 1 negative 1 squared minus 1 equals 0 and so we're back to 0 squared minus 1 equals negative 1 so we see that this function is going to keep oscillating back and forth between negative 1 and 0 and so it'll remain finite and so C equals negative 1 is part of the Mandelbrot set now normally when you see pictures of the Mandelbrot set it just shows you the boundary between the numbers that cause this iterated equation to remain finite and those that cause it to blow up but it doesn't really show you how these numbers stay finite so what we've done here is actually iterated that equation thousands of times and then plotted on the z axis the value that that iteration actually takes so if we look from the side what you'll actually see is the bifurcation diagram it is part of this Mandelbrot set so what's really going on here well what this is showing us is that all of the numbers in the main cardioid they end up stabilizing on to a single constant value but the numbers in this main bulb will they end up oscillating back and forth between two values and in this bulb they end up oscillating between four values they've got a period of four and then eight and then 16 32 and so on and then you hit the chaotic part the chaotic part of the bifurcation diagram happens out here on what's called the needle of the Mandelbrot set where the Mandelbrot set gets really thin and you can see this medallion here that looks like a smaller version of the entire Mandelbrot set well that corresponds to the window of stability in the bifurcation plot with a period of three now the bifurcation diagram only exists on the real line because we only put real numbers into our equation but all of these bulbs off of the main cardioid well they also have periodic cycles of for example 3 or 4 or 5 and so you see these repeated ghostly images if we look in the z axis effectively they're oscillating between these values as well personally I find this extraordinarily beautiful but if you're more practically minded you may be asking but does this equation actually model populations of animals and the answer is yes particularly in the controlled environment scientists have set up in labs what I find even more amazing is how this one simple equation applies to a huge range of totally unrelated areas of science the first major experimental confirmation came from a fluid dynamicists named Lib Taber he created a small rectangular box with mercury inside and he used a small temperature gradient to induce convection just two counter-rotating cylinders of fluid inside his box that's all the box was large enough for and of course he couldn't look in and see what the fluid was doing so he measured the temperature using a probe in the top and what he saw was a regular spike a periodic spike in the temperature that's like when the logistic equation converges on a single value but as he increased the temperature gradient a wobble developed on those rolling cylinders at half the original frequency the spikes in temperature were no longer the same height instead they went back and forth between two different heights he had achieved period two and as he continued to increase the temperature he saw period doubling again now he had four different temperatures before the cycle repeated and then eight this was a pretty spectacular confirmation of the theory in a beautifully crafted experiment but this was only the beginning scientists have studied the response of our eyes and salamander eyes to flickering lights and what they find is a period doubling that once the light reaches a certain rate of flickering our eyes only respond to every other flicker it's amazing in these papers to see the bifurcation diagram emerge albeit a bit fuzzy because it comes from real-world data in another study scientists gave rabbits a drug that sent their hearts into fibrillation I guess they felt there were too many rabbits out there I mean if you don't know what fibrillation is it's where your heart beats in an incredibly irregular way and doesn't really pump any blood so if you don't fix it you die but what they found was on the path to fibrillation they found the period doubling route to chaos the rabbits started out with a periodic beat and then it went into a two cycle two beats close together and then a four cycle four different beats before it repeated again and eventually a periodic behavior now it was really cool about this study was they monitored the heart in real time and used chaos theory to determine when to apply electrical shocks to the heart to return it to periodicity and they were able to do that successfully so they used chaos to control a heart and figure out a smarter way to deliver electric shocks to set it beating normally again that's pretty amazing and then there is the issue of the dripping faucet most of us of course think of dripping faucets as very regular periodic objects but a lot of research has gone into finding that once the flow rate increases a little bit you get period doubling so now the drips come two at a time to tip to tip and eventually from a dripping faucet you can get chaotic behavior just by adjusting the flow rate and you think like what really is a faucet well there's constant pressure water and a constant size aperture and yet what you're getting is chaotic dripping so this is a really easy chaotic system you can experiment with at home go open a tap just a little bit and see if you can get a periodic dripping in your house the bifurcation diagram pops up in so many different places that it starts to feel spooky and I want to tell you something that'll make it seem even spookier there was this physicist Mitchell Feigenbaum who was looking at when the bifurcations occur he divided the width of each bifurcation section by the next one and he found that ratio closed in on this number four point six six nine which is now called the Feigenbaum constant the bifurcations come faster and faster but in a ratio that approaches this fixed value and no one knows where this constant comes from it doesn't seem to relate to any other known physical constant so it is itself a fundamental constant of nature what's even crazier is that it doesn't have to be the particular form of the equation I showed you earlier any equation that has a single hump if you iterate it the way that we have so you could use xn plus 1 equals sine X for example if you iterate that one again and again and again you will also see bifurcations not only that but the ratio of when those bifurcations occur will have the same scaling for point six six nine any single hump function iterated will give you that fundamental constant so why is this well it's referred to as universality because there seems to be something fundamental and very Universal about this process this type of equation and that constant value in 1976 the biologist Robert May wrote a paper in nature about this very equation it's sparked a revolution and people looking into this stuff I mean that papers been cited thousands of times and in the paper he makes this plea that we should teach students about this simple equation because it gives you a new intuition for ways in which simple things simple equations can create very complex behaviors and I still think that today we don't really teach this way I mean we teach simple equations and simple outcomes because those are the easy things to do and those are the things that make sense we're not gonna throw chaos at students but maybe we should maybe we should throw at least a little bit which is why I've been so excited about chaos and I am so excited about this equation because you know how did I get to be 37 years old without hearing of the Feigenbaum constant ever since I read James Gleeks book chaos I have wanted to make videos on this topic and now I'm finally getting around to it and hopefully I'm doing this topic justice because I find it incredibly

A Techless Bonanza in Tokyo
So this is a thing that happened. I travel to Tokyo and hang out with Sara Dietschy who spent the day not being able to use anything IBM and it was harder than expected; the results may surprise you; you won’t believe what happened next. Anyway; watch the video because, it turns out without IBM it's tres hard to get proper ramen. You'll see. Video Script: my gosh this is beautiful my name is Sara DG rhymes with peachy I create videos about tech and creativity I have no idea what we're doing here but we're in Tokyo and we're going to have an adventure hi-yah come on guys so look you don't really know what you're doing here do you no idea somewhere over there there is a restaurant called for Kuja and it just does dynamite ramen this guy has been making ramen there for like 150 years the idea is that you just need to get there by 6 p.m. that's that's pretty much it didn't you do that sure ask me if there's a catch what's the catch you can't use anything that was invented by IBM or could use their technology and you can't be like man it's incredibly important if you're not there at 6 p.m. you fail you lose the challenge ok all right would you give me a phone I'm sorry I'm really sorry 10 just right that is mine because unfortunately your suffering contains several gigabytes of DRAM chips the RAM was invented by an IBM ax so I'm excited but I'm a little nervous the fact that I don't have my phone is terrified you just tell me what we're doing I'm sorry where do you stand on IBM Watson yeah yeah IBM could very well be in our vehicle two virtual assistants I'm sorry I know I don't make the rules I think she's gonna struggle to be honest I don't think it's the easiest task IBM technologies and a lot of stuff that you might not think is if she's really stuck I'm gonna give her a lifeline do you know how to unlock the bikes I'll translate for you hey excuse me do you know how to unlock this bike Osaka tomar-re masses No okay you know I'm gonna handle this okay okay excuse me unlock the spike do you have no phone I use tech for literally everything my level of confidence now is probably a five at skelton I can help you say Kaushal that means malfunction breakdown failure and I think that's what we're experiencing right now yeah I think I can do this um no no no no no what do you want to say ah found the map oh yeah but how are you paying for the map I'm sorry we can't pay for the map by credit card IBM technology is often involved in point-of-sale transaction it's basically we find a different way to do this because we can't have that map you know it might be time for one of my lifelines did I hear the word lifeline so we got one I have to hug three strangers I don't even count I don't even count it's very sweet you know it's not gonna misses a challenge where I have to get three hugs in order to get a map is that what I'm doing out here hug hug is this way right okay hug there all the time but this is adorable I can't secure my final hug hug I got far everyone had smiles on their faces besides the thousands of people who didn't yes so I have some that no it's kind of like where do I need to go you know one would think that I have never used a paper map before but I've actually used it once but I will say we did not get to where we needed to go so hot I am thirsty I am parched oh yeah sorry I would have got you one but I think there's a chance that the the produce inside of here was traced on the IBM food trust using blockchain technology so of course it can do promise would you find a deadline so why do you have media I just can't change have you just thought about thank you okay [Music] automotive transportation and while do I I just might make it I've got 20 minutes but anyone seen it allowed America keep going and he'll see the shop on your left [Music] hello James you made it welcome to work this is gosh II can't believe you I mean I can obviously I mean obviously we're gonna go your task you have at the orientation tell me what you think that's wrong well I fit though well then I can't believe too much to do we've done the adventure without IBM technology with mean we had a lifeline but we did a lot of things so it's been it's been an adventure I'm genuinely pressed what about should get it I was surprised to find that IBM tech wasn't so much what is technology it's community it's connecting people from around the world even after finishing the ROM and everyone's having fun take the pictures this is a great moment [Music]

Cat and Dog Road Trip
Prince Michael and his new friend, Bob, set out for a road trip in the brand new film Cat and Dog Road Trip. Video Script: Yeah, maybe me have nintindo switch next year too. Wut the?? Who let the dog out? Who who who who? Hmm, $500 enough for nintindo switch.. Or flight to hawaii! Wait, this that crazy dog! But how me get him to Colorado? U ordered a car, sir? U owe me 5 bucks for that. So...u gonna shut the door or what? (disgusting Bob farts) Me think this dog might be sick. Remember, anything 2 get 2 Hawaii. Wood it kill u to chew with ur mouth-- Me should have paid attention in shop class. Bob, u know how to use that? Me didnt realize me riding with nascar pit crew dog. Bob, that was incredib-- Nevermind. (disgusting Bob fart) Wood it kill u to chew with ur mouth-- Goodbye sweet donettes. Umm...u know that also food, right? Goodbye sweet weenies. Oh brother. Hog the blankets much? This the worst. Wut the? Wow, Bob love me. Have me been bad? Maybe Bob okay after all. No one going 2 pick up cat and dog but... Maybe they pick up sexy winter lady? Welp. Beggers cant be choosers. Umm...this guy going really fast. U hear sirens too, right? Okay, fine. Time 2 be hero. (Justice being served) How bout Clark County let me keep car? Back 2 square one. (disgusting Bob fart) Watch and learn, Bob. Nice book, bb. Now u try. Okay, time 2 get off train! When in Rome... CANNONBALL!!! NO THANK U!!! Tastiest cannonball ever. Special treats for special friends, mon? Wooooow. Me see things so clearly now. Me think me feeling...sad. Wait, where Bob's house? Where Bob's family? Wow, this guy monster. Me stuck between rock and hard place. What me thinking? Me cant leave Bob here! Time 2 head home. Morning pal. Me just about to turn around. Me get it. U have home here. Me feel so...empty. Maybe me crazy but me miss Bob farts. Oh no. Bob make huge mistake. MICHAEL! BOB COMING, MICHAEL! Wut that smell? // Hmmm it smell like-- Hey it me Bob! Remember me? This was more comfy in grass. Thank god for edit button. Michael, what we waiting on pal? Nuthin. Lets go home. (The beginning of a beautiful friendship)

Things you can make from old, dead laptops
In this video I'll be showing you several different things you can make from old, dead laptops! Video Script: laptops useful things during their working life but if they break or just get too old and too slow to do anything productive with what can you do with them well if it's the latter situation and it's just too old and too slow to do any real work on there are still some very useful use cases that you can put them to which I will be going into more detail about later but if you have a broken one you are in for a whole heap of fun as there are loads of things you can make out of dead laptops as there are so many still useful components and materials inside waiting to be repurposed so let's get creative this video is sponsored by Squarespace so the first task is to open them up so that we can get at the components which usually involves unscrewing any screws you can find on the back and prying apart the plastics this process needs to be continued as you carefully separate all of the internals after which we're ready to start repurposing them as you can see there are quite a few of them most of which can be put some kind of use the first component I want to focus on though other speakers some laptops particularly those made around 2008 where media playback was a big focus had ridiculously good speakers and some even featured mini subwoofers as they're usually built into their own sealed enclosures you don't need to build a speaker box for them and that can be used as is my particular ones are even ported for extra base which is very cool now as they're physically quite flat and make an interesting shape when placed together I glued them to each other and soldered them up to a mini bluetooth amplifier which I also glued in place as this amplifier works off 5 volts I sold it on a USB socket so that it can be plugged into a USB battery bank for power now to make it look a bit neater i next got some plastic strips and glued them together to fit around the perimeter of the speakers and after fitting on some thin fabric to apps as a grill it could be mounted directly onto a wall as it's Bluetooth it can be wirelessly connected to a phone or tablet and used to listen to music or podcasts all while being unobtrusive and actually very impressive sounding for the size thanks to the well designed speakers not bad moving on to the next project I want to focus in on the cooling system in laptops these take heat away from particularly hot running ICS by utilizing heat pipes which move the heat over to a set of fins which then transfer the heat into the air that's forced through them by an accompanying fan as they can handle quite a lot of heat output they're actually perfect for reusing to cool high-power LEDs small LEDs like this have various power level options and as mine actually use 10 watts of power each they would burn up very quickly if powered up on their own but once mounted onto the heat plates with some thermally conductive glue and with the fan wired to spin up they can be powered indefinitely thanks to the high level of cooling if you end up doing this yourself don't forget to use an appropriate LED driver circuit though or you could still fry the LED with too much current I attached mine to a curved piece of aluminium to make a stand and it turned out to look pretty cool thanks to the different materials and a visible cooling system this makes for a fantastic light to use while working but it could also make a great desk lamp too particularly if you're interested in computers and want a lamp made out of recycled parts now while we're on the topic of lighting laptop screens in particular are worth salvaging even if they're smashed like this one this is because when the LCD layer is removed you're left with a variety of potentially useful diffusion sheets friend lenses and an acrylic back panel these work together to spread out the backlight evenly and to take advantage of them as is you can leave them inside the screen casing and wire up the PCB on the back to trigger the screens built-in backlight this leaves you with a soft diffused light source that you can then put to a variety of uses for example you could use it as a tracing back light or mounted onto the wall to be a fake window you can even print your favorite pictures onto thin paper and have them now backlit for some striking wall art pretty neat for help wiring these up to work like this I do have a separate dedicated video on the topic which you can find a link to in the description now if none of these strike your interest you can take the various layers out and make use of them with LED strips as these have adhesive on the back and can be cut to any length one idea is to stick a short length to one side of a diffusion sheet from the screen adding some double-sided tape opposite this allows the sheet to be looped around to create a cylinder which once mounted onto a wall diffuses the light emitted from the LED strip so that it significantly reduces the glare from it and turns it into a pretty slick wall light even better though is using the friend lenses instead for this as the lenses bend the light and cause quite interesting distortions they when wrapped around the LEDs make a really nice sparkly rainbow effect that changes depending on what angle you look at it from this is still easy on the eyes but now it looks really nice visually as well as for the screens acrylic back panel well this is where you can get really creative for this cover the sheet in masking tape on both sides and then trace a pattern or shape onto it now roughly cut around this with a rotary tool and then remove the remaining material with a file until you reach your traced line the tape can then be peeled away leaving you with your shape now to make this extra special we're going to light it up for which we'll be using a couple of small LED filaments these work off around three volts of power so a safe to touch and our cool running the first thing to do is to make some slots for these LEDs in a piece of wood and then cut out a base shape around them I stained mine to give it a bit more character the LED filaments can now be soldered onto some wires and pushed through two holes that need to be made in the slots once wired up they'll illuminate which means that the last job is to glue the acrylic cutout in place the light from the LEDs enter this cutout at the bottom and gets scattered around meaning that the whole thing gets lit up internally giving you a really awesome little feature light the creative possibilities here are endless and could make for really nice DIY gifts for people now if your screen is not smashed instead of dismantling it you may want to get a separate driver board for it which would allow you to use it as a standard independent computer monitor I again have a few videos about how to do this after which they can be used to make for example a dual screen laptop allowing for increased productivity and improved ergonomics or even a smart mirror where you can watch youtube videos as you do your teeth or have a shave as usual there are links to these in the description if you're interested now the next project we're going to make requires the use of one of the smallest discrete components you can find in our app top and it's location can vary so you will have to do some hunting but what you are looking for is a little cylinder with two small wires attached and this is in fact a microphone now these can actually sound very good proof of which is that the little lavalier microphone that I'm wearing right now was made out of a laptop microphone that have disassembled several years ago and it sounds so good that have just used it in almost every video I've made since then so that's hopefully testament to how good they can potentially sound now as most of you won't have a use for a little lovely microphone I will instead be showing you how to make a little clip on communication microphone that you can clip onto your headphones and use for extremely clear calls or even communicating well with your teammates in games making this is quite simple first requiring the microphones wires to be soldered to a shielded audio cable this shielded cable prevents buzzing and interference noises so is quite important now we can thread this wire through a small piece of plastic tubing leaving a short length of wire at the end for adjusting microphones position to mount it to your headphones the easiest way is to mold a small clip out of sugru once dried the tube can be slid in place and adjusted as needed while that's essentially it for the headset the microphone still needs amplifying as computers typically don't have very good microphone preamps so their microphone inputs usually introduce a lot of hiss in to the audio signal the preamp I recommend can work off the 5 volts provided from a USB port and it's easy enough to wire up looking closely at it you should be able to see a few little jumpers these allow us to adjust the behavior of the amplification controlling both the overall volume and also the reaction speed of the board's Auto gain control this auto gain control can reduce the volume if the input is too loud so you'll never get sound clipping if you talk too loudly or shout once covered up this can be plugged into a computer's USB port and mic for an input and then used as a decent sounding budget microphone setup so how does it sound personally I think it sounds pretty good especially compared to most headset microphones out there and the auto gain control in the amplifier is doing a great job as well as I can talk quite quietly and it's still more or less the same volume as when I talk really loudly so that should make it better for any listeners on the other end not bad for reusing little microphone from a laptop moving on this is the hard drive and it's what all the data on the laptop is stored on so if you have any important files on it now's the time to plug it into an external USB enclosure so that you can access them and back them up and honestly if the drive is of a reasonable capacity this should really be its main use case as it's just what is most useful for storing data now if the drive is broken or perhaps just too small and capacity to be worth using for anything else here are a few interesting and fun projects that you can make by dismantling one to get inside one you'll need an appropriate screwdriver bit which can usually be found in the multi bit set and once you're inside you'll see the platters and head array when turned on this head scoots across the surface of the drive to read and write data as the platters spin quite fast one trick is to cut out a ring of sandpaper and glue it to the topmost platter this can then be used to clean tools or sharpen things like a pencil to be fair this is a little bit gimmicky as it's a lot faster just to use a pencil sharpener but it's still quite novel you can however unscrew these platters and as you can see they're very shiny as they actually have a nice ring to them too you could make a little wind chime with them and they scatter the light nicely when in the Sun you can even make a little mirrored analog clock with one which would be quite a nice gift for someone who is into their technology now going back to the drive there remains the head array now it's movement is derived from some coils underneath these powerful magnets so if you solder some wires to these coils the head can be forced back and forth by applying a voltage if we rigged up an audio amplifier to this it will actually vibrate along with the sound signal just like a speaker if you're wondering it is audible but it sounds very tinny adding a little paper cone improves matters but while it's bass heavy up close it quickly drops off and sounds tinny again further away and returns to sounding awful this isn't our goal though as we've already made a speaker anyway and the actual plan is much cooler so to start we'll need a small laser pointer taking it apart we can find the laser diode itself along with a driver circuit as the diode is very lightweight we can glue it to the head array so the tip too vibrates along with the sound signal can you see where this is going pointing is that a wall creates a visible analog vu meter which follows along to the beat of the music it looks really cool in person and I think it's a great use of a jet Drive so now it's time to talk about batteries now most older laptops actually have a battery pack that's made up of internally individual 18 650 battery cells which is great news for us because these are really easy to repurpose and put to other uses however the challenge is actually getting them out of the plastic enclosure as it's completely sealed closed and there's no screws or anything that you can just undo and then pop it open so it just involves breaking the plastic and prying it apart now you do run the risk of puncturing the battery cells and also causing short circuits so only do this if you know exactly what you're doing and as with everything it's of course at your own risk once you're in they can now be carefully separated by cutting through the wires and conductors holding them together now it's easy to cause short circuits here so you need to be particularly careful and before starting make sure you follow the circuit so that you start in the right place with the cells now separated they each need to be checked to make sure that their voltages are 2.8 volts or above lithium cells degrade and become unstable if they drop below this voltage so never use a battery that's below 2.8 volts as mine were all safely above this value they're good to reuse while you could use these in any number of projects you will need to implement protection circuitry so that you don't over discharge them and to ensure that they're all kept balanced during charging this can get quite complicated so instead I suggest getting a few empty single cell battery bank cases these are super cheap and have protection circuitry built-in which turns them off when the cell reaches 2.8 volts you can then use these to charge your devices or power things like the speaker project we made earlier battery banks can be quite expensive so just getting the enclosures and reusing old laptop batteries in them like this is a great way to save some money so so far we've made quite a few interesting things but before I move on and show you the last repurposing project which will leave me neatly onto showing you what to do with old but otherwise still working laptops I want to talk about this video sponsor Squarespace from making your own online store to building a personal portfolio Squarespace is the all-in-one

domain and you can find a link to that down below so again that squarespace.com slash DIY perks for 10% off so the last repurposing project I want to cover is perhaps the one that will save you the most amount of money which is actually repurposing laptop webcams and using them to make a home security system this is fairly easy to do as laptop webcams usually use the USB protocol meaning that they can just be soldered up to a USB cable after which they can be used on any PC as a standard video input these can then be placed at various locations around your home which can be done discreetly as they're so tiny and unobtrusive once hooked up to a computer running some software like canta cam the webcams can be monitored and recorded and the software can even notify you by email of any movement caught by the cameras for more info there is you guessed it a link to a thorough video on the topic in the description now the computer that these webcams can all be plugged into doesn't have to be particularly powerful so this is actually a great use of an older one that still works but you don't know what to do with some more ideas particularly if the operating system is old as well is to use it as a retro gaming machine as some games don't work on modern pcs old laptops can also be a bit of a lifesaver for specific older hardware for example I have a spectrophotometer that measures the precise wavelengths of light and build a graph of their brightness great to have but the accompanying software only works on older 32-bit versions of Windows so it needs to be run on old hardware to use at all another thing you could do is use one as a media PC I actually took one apart a while ago for this task and to make it a bit nicer looking I transplanted the hardware into a new scratch-built case so that it wasn't an eyesore in the living room the last thing I'm going to suggest is that you literally just give it away to someone who doesn't have a PC whether it's a young person who needs to learn about how computers work or an old person who just needs access to emails they might have more patience to deal with the limit and it could prove to be really helpful to them so that's it for this video I think we've made some really interesting things and if you have any more ideas you can leave them in the comments down below now if you want to support my work you can do so by visiting patreon.com slash DIY perks and many thanks if you decide to support me on there but other than that you can always just consider pressing like and maybe consider subscribing as well but as for this video it's over so I shall go now I hope to see you next time goodbye for now

Kim and Kanye Quiz Each Other On Home Design, Family, and Life | Architectural Digest
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West join Architectural Digest from inside their minimalist mansion to take an illuminating personal design quiz. Which room has the best light in the house for selfies? How would Kanye describe interior designer and frequent collaborator Axel Vervoordt? Kim and Kanye pose thoughtful questions and give playfully insightful answers to one another, revealing not only how their taste is expressed through design, but where its functionality is influenced by their exuberant kids. okay what habits did you change when we moved in together I stopped being lonely oh hey I'm Kim that's Kanye and we're gonna be doing our design quiz can I tell you guys a really quick story about this house so we got pregnant and then I got pregnant and then he had a house in Los Angeles Hollywood I had a house in Beverly Hills they were both like not that family ish so we were going on a walk one day and I said this was my dream home this house here and so he said I like it and to him I liked it was like oh my god he loves it cuz he doesn't really like anything that's my specialty not liking stuff I knew that it was gonna be our dream home and that he was going to fully redo it and it was gonna be likable what's the one thing you would get rid of if I wasn't around and why okay I'll tell you what I think I think it would be this TV station that shows Dateline oh really huh love it it like brings me calmness at the end of my day what would I get rid of Rick and Morty you think we can handle Rick and Morty every single night well it's been two years since the new season started really yeah but me Axl still working on our next project we have these new designs we've been doing with James Turrell and Claudio Sebastian and Axl so we'll be you know in the same mind is always on to the next but I think if you were to get rid of one thing you would definitely get rid of just stuff in my closet I feel like you think I'm a hoarder in my closet if our house had a soundtrack what would it be and why I mean I think Jesus is king because that's just the verb right now and that's the soundtrack right now yeah hallelujah hallelujah yeah the kids love singing that yeah what would you say we always talk about wolves when we see the hallway simple like with my other team what room has the best light for selfies he's like oh that was the first thing I excited Oh finally I would honestly say the theater because I like a dark room and I like to use a flash with a dark room when's the last time you used a pool I've never used our pool actually what yeah can you believe that but I love our pool you know we don't have a jacuzzi can you believe that do you believe we don't have a jacuzzi we just make it sure that it's hot oh that's how I think cuz Kanye wanted like everyone wanted a jacuzzi like weird off to the side and we just wanted like a really long front stair which has been amazing cuz all the babies just sit on that stair and like all the cousins come over you said I wanted a Jacuzzi weird no I wanted it to coffee that's like we had no I mean everyone kept on designing them off to the side and it bothered you so much but the kids love to swim in a Jacuzzi but so you said no the whole pool will be a Jacuzzi just make it really warm like the whole pool all the time we built this like really long stair and it's not the deepest pool so like the kids like love it what three words would you use to describe axel cavorts bald him himself or like his design oh yeah I would say Axel's design style is wabi-sabi and that's two words yeah so I only have to use one more yes oh and Wabi and sabi that's three words that is not what I would have guessed here's what I think you would have said there are three words oh I could do it in four I would think on you would say greatest of all time oh that's nice yeah you wish you did that what was your favorite thing that you and Axel design together I say this hallway just take in this hallway that you loved when you found this house and with me and Axel we pushed it to minimize it and get as strong as possible and as simple as possible what is your favorite thing about the bathroom I would think that you say you would say taking selfies in that room yes that's so true the lighting in the bathroom is so good that it like smooths out all cellulite we have this like light panel that we saw maybe we sawed it like this Chanel store or something and the whole ceiling was this light and we did it it's so cool the whole ceiling is just one giant light but it like smooths out everything and so I I start my day off getting in the shower feeling so good about myself thinking like oh my god I really like I've been working out so hard my slightly lights going away and then I just go in the closet later to get dressed and I realized it was just the lighting we need there kind of lighting for the closet everyone's eyes need that kind of lighting yes we still have that sink that everyone is like how does the sink work how does this exist yeah we did we're designing some new sinks now but Claudia worked on that sink he's the one that said push it back pull it back from the wall and it has like a more Zen type of feeling yeah the sink was up against the wall and that was the big debate and so I was like well if I do my makeup is it gonna be weird because I'm so used to having it up against the wall but then I just have way more mirror so it's amazing what room are you most proud of okay I'm gonna answer I feel like you're most proud of your closet why is that because he completely took away the bars in the closet you have like a whole new system for how you like to fold your clothes and how you like to organize your clothes it gives me full anxiety cuz then you have to steam it instead of it just being I can see all my clothes in the closet at the same time I just haven't have them on Uline racks it's not very Axl I would say my favorite room would be the inside at a Anish Kapoor I stare inside and say we need to live inside of one of these like a huge Kapoor yeah yeah okay I was wrong the bathroom is one of my favorite rooms also be the way it's someone that's most similar to the concept of our houses in the future even though it's square and the other houses are more organic but I love how the whole side of the bathroom is just blown out and that was Chris I did she was like you guys need a bigger bathroom I was like oh bathroom and then it's like we had that huge bathroom that pushed our project backed by like eight months we had just continued to live with my mom for like eight months thanks a lot Chris thanks a lot mom you know it's something me and Kim always had in common with our houses we never had a lot of like garish colors we both always had houses that were this tone what I love about having such a minimal house I don't think I started off so minimal but after being with you I became way more minimal like there would be too much clutter and I wouldn't be able to get as much done I really believe if I had so much more stuff everywhere for me it's like how I organize and how I get things done I know where every last thing is there's a place for everything even if it's like hidden in the wall and a cabinet that you can't see like we do have a lot of stuff well that's the next frontier for the closets to be like an outright store because if you go to a store you see everything that is for sale so the closet the scale probably has to be bigger so that everything can be visible but still laid out in a really nice way because that lowers anxiety just knowing where your stuff isn't like more minimal yeah more minimal more chill our lives are so hectic and so crazy and there's always so much going on that I love to come home to full simplicity and just like lay in bed and just like it's so calming to me okay what was the inspiration behind the design of our house north was the inspiration you were an inspiration for the design of our house interview okay will you be my cardholder actually okay go sit on that couch right there and you could watch us no this is a good couch no no you for fair in the middle you're in the okay what was the inspiration behind the design of our house I'm not asking you the question yeah the kids like saying them in the backyard there are all these stairs and we wanted the kids or we needed the kids to be able to ride their scooters or skateboards around and not have to stop the stairs to as many places as I could take the stairs out I try I did like I said yes that's why you're at the inspiration kids are the inspiration for all of our design staff moving forward this is like an interim between can we eat the bumpy stairs that's what I'm saying there's any bumpy everything what's your favorite thing to do with the kids at home what's your favorite thing to do at this house dance competitions in the hallway in the summer you love to swim [Music] really there's that big of crystal there's some catfish there's some bigger blegh dad what is the most prized possession in the house yeah yeah I was gonna say that I'll do it again and then save me who's your favorite houseguest dave chappelle I was that's what I was gonna say Dave Chappelle I love when Dave comes over but he ain't gonna put his feet on our cows I'll tell you that all right thanks ad for joining us in our living room what do you even call this room I always get sucked into the living room yeah but we don't really live in here that much but thanks ad for doing the design quiz with Kim yay

My Girlfriend Can't Cook | Anwar Jibawi
cooking for me is more than just flavors and ratios and presentation it's a meditation on life and the journey we all take as a bowl full of ingredients on this stove called earth hi I'm cookie and this is my boyfriend Anwar thanks for watching my Top Chef submission video that curl and not cook I try to infuse my creations with the same love and care as I would a child to me there's no difference between having a baby and rying an omelette there's like a little piece of you in each one on our first date she brought homemade cookies I ate one and I got eco life there's something about feeding people I feel like by nourishing them I'm nourishing my own soul their satisfaction is my satisfaction after my birthday dinner if you want to call it that got these really bad headaches and I couldn't poop right so I went to the doctor and he's at two words brain parasites when I put on an apron it's like I was born for this the doctor said if I continued eating her cooking my organs will shut down one by one and my bodily fluids would leave every pore in my body at once and that'll die and that's why I should be on top chef because I'm not your average amateur chef I'm cookie under no circumstances should she ever be allowed to cook for anyone ever she has to stop I just don't know how to do it chugga-chugga-chugga chugga-chugga-chugga Oh mm-hmm swallow it all right and we're so supportive he's the best um he just can't get enough I'm feeding him so much that I barely ever have time to try any new recipes amazing I'm gonna go get the other appetizer okay okay my boyfriend Anwar is my judge and jury and she's my executioner that sound oh no I think it was uh they're mowing the lawn outside Oh already about you can have mine thank you hey have you ever thought about owned like a cooking class do you really think I'm good enough to teach a class [Music] is there another bathroom right here I would feed the food to the dog but that would be animal cruelty at this point I'd rather eat the dogs food I actually do [Music] what are you doing I was just using the restroom seriously this is the fifth time you've left the toilet seat up god you're disgusting you're a slob you're unhygenic you're just gross like I know you love my cooking and I love you but I just can't do this anymore okay are you breaking up with me you can keep the food I left you in the fridge this is it no baby don't go come back yes I can hear everyone wow you're a fight thank you so much for watching this video if you enjoyed it give it a thumbs up and don't forget to subscribe turn on notifications and cop submerge peace
