08:48

How to Make an Attractive City
 
14:21
We've grown good at making many things in the modern world - but strangely the art of making attractive cities has been lost. Here are some key principles for how to make attractive cities once again. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/fwFNPV FURTHER READING “Cities are a big deal. We pretty much all have to live in them. We should try hard to get them right. So few cities are nice, very few out of many thousands are really beautiful; embarrassingly the more appealing ones tend to be old, which is weird because we’re mostly much better at making things now...” You can read more on this and other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org at this link: https://goo.gl/6wYBGc MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/RWcyzt Watch more films on CAPITALISM in our playlist: http://bit.ly/TSOLcapitalism Do you speak a different language to English?

Urbanization and the future of cities - Vance Kite
 
04:09
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/urbanization-and-the-future-of-cities-vance-kite About 10,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers, aided by rudimentary agriculture, moved to semi-permanent villages and never looked back. With further developments came food surpluses, leading to commerce, specialization and, many years later with the Industrial Revolution, the modern city. Vance Kite plots our urban past and how we can expect future cities to adapt to our growing populations. Lesson by Vance Kite, animation by ATMG Studio.

POLITICAL THEORY - Karl Marx
 
09:28
Karl Marx remains deeply important today not as the man who told us what to replace capitalism with, but as someone who brilliantly pointed out certain of its problems. The School of Life, a pro-Capitalist institution, takes a look. For gifts and more from The School of Life, visit our online shop: https://goo.gl/O1tWri Download our App: https://goo.gl/kj9Vvr FURTHER READING “Most people agree that we need to improve our economic system somehow. It threatens our planet through excessive consumption, distracts us with irrelevant advertising, leaves people hungry and without healthcare, and fuels unnecessary wars. Yet we’re also often keen to dismiss the ideas of its most famous and ambitious critic, Karl Marx. This isn’t very surprising. In practice, his political and economic ideas have been used to design disastrously planned economies and nasty dictatorships. Frankly, the remedies Marx proposed for the ills of the world now sound a bit demented. He thought we should abolish private property. People should not be allowed to own things. At certain moments one can sympathise. But it’s like wanting to ban gossip or forbid watching television. It’s going to war with human behaviour. And Marx believed the world would be put to rights by a dictatorship of the proletariat; which does not mean anything much today. Openly Marxist parties received a total of only 1,685 votes in the 2010 UK general election, out of the nearly 40 million ballots cast…” You can read more on this and many other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org at this link: https://goo.gl/Rt3zri MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/93tGtZ Watch more films on POLITICAL THEORY in our playlist: http://bit.ly/2dma0Sn Do you speak a different language to English?

Decolonization and Nationalism Triumphant: Crash Course World History #40
 
12:49
READ THIS: THERE ARE TWO MORE VIDEOS IN THE WORLD HISTORY SERIES. You should also turn on the captions. You'll like them. In which John Green teaches you about the post-World War II breakup of most of the European empires. As you'll remember from previous installments of Crash Course, Europeans spent several centuries sailing around the world creating empires, despite the fact that most of the places they conquered were perfectly happy to carry on alone. After World War II, most of these empires collapsed. This is the story of those collapses. In most places, the end of empire was not orderly, and violence often ensued. While India was a (sort of) shining example of non-violent change, in places like The Congo, Egypt, Rwanda, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, things didn't go smoothly at all. John brings you all this, plus pictures of Sea Monkeys. Sadly, they don't look anything like those awesome commercials in the comic books.

U.S. Foreign Policy
 
14:25
PowerPoint available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson introduces students to U.S. foreign policy. Students will need to be able to differentiate between “domestic” and “foreign” policy and many examples or provided throughout this lesson. Students will learn about the role that the president and Congress play in developing foreign policy. For the president this includes: signing treaties, appointing ambassadors and the secretary of state, and serving as commander-in-chief of the military and chief diplomat. Students will also learn how Congress has the power to declare war, approve treaties and ambassadors, and provide funding for foreign policy. Students are introduced to the goals of foreign policy: national security, maintain peace, spreading democracy, increasing trade, and providing aid. An overview of the role that the secretary of state, the State Department, and embassies and provided and their role in foreign policy and diplomacy. The process for making treaties is provided as well as two examples: N.A.T.O. – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and N.A.F.T.A. – the North American Free Trade Agreement. The importance of alliances in the process of diplomacy and treaties is also provided. An overview of foreign aid is covered with amounts and recipients. Deterrents for countries that the United States is having trouble with are provided with sanctions and military force. An overview of countries facing U.S. sanctions with the economic consequences is covered as well as the President’s role as commander-in-chief and congressional power to declare war in foreign policy of using military force. Definitions for key term such as: diplomacy, treaties, alliances, and sanctions are provided. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

Democracy - A short introduction
 
03:10
Learn more about the origins of Democracy at the Great Courses Plus: http://bit.ly/Learn-About-Democracy This is a 3 minute video to introduce the most basic concepts of a Democracy. Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally—either directly or indirectly through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, religious, cultural, ethnic and racial equality, justice, liberty and fraternity. To download the video, go here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B80QLbZggGszblRxZ3hLMU5kZWc/edit?usp=sharing More Info: - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy If you know of more links with good infos please let us know in the comments and we'll add them here. Collaboration: - Storyboard: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B80QLbZggGszcEE2N19EcjRlLVk&usp=sharing Please help us make this video better by collaborating on the scrip and storyboard. We're really looking forward to your comments :) === Video Script: Scene 1 The word democracy comes from the Greek words of “démos” which means “people” and “krátos” which means “power” or “rule”, So democracy basically means “the rule of the people.” Scene 2 Democracy first started as a direct democracy, in Greek cities, notably Ancient Athens, where people came together to speak about their concerns and opinions, in front of rulers of the city state, and directly voted on new rules and laws. Here is considered as the birthplace of democracy . Scene 3 So, For the very first time, decisions were made by the people instead of rulers... but sadly, the ancient greeks did not see all people equally. Slaves, women, children and the people who did not have a land weren’t allowed to vote. This is what we call a “flawed” democracy today. Scene 4 After the Greeks lost their power and influence in the first century AD, their early forms of democracy were also fading away until the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, which prevented the King of England to do whatever he wanted and said that even the King had to follow the country’s rules and laws which were written in the constitution. Scene 5 Today, most democracies are indirect or representative which means that you can’t vote for a new law yourself, but you can vote for people who then become law makers and present your interests. But democracy isn’t just about voting; it’s about everything to protect the best interests of the people, no matter what is their race, gender, political opinion, or religion. These interests can be human rights, quality of life, infrastructure and many more. Scene 6 Modern democracies divide powers into three different branches : the legislative (the people who make law), the executive (the people who make sure that you obey the law), and the judiciary (who judge you if you commit a crime). These three are independent and work following the process « checks and balances » which means all the work must be clear and fair. And, very important, the people who have power also must follow the law and not exceed their authority. Scene 7 In addition, a democratic government must work in a way that reflects the wish /feeling/desire and values of the society that it governs—this is also known as the « General Will », which is a concept developed by the famous Swiss philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Scene 8 One of the problems of democratic voting is that the biggest groups of people always have the most power and that’s why a good democracy also has laws to protect the rights of its smaller and weaker groups. A democracy where the majority chooses to separate, set apart, expel or injure its minority is not a functioning democracy! Scene 9 So, with those mentioned above, what do you think now about democracy? Winston Churchill once said: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Do you agree? === with love your MinuteVideos team https://minutevideos.com/

How to express opposing ideas in English: despite, although, nevertheless, in spite of...
 
09:33
http://www.engvid.com/ Want to know a simple trick that will help you sound more academic in your speaking? This tip can also help you begin writing the introduction to your TOEFL and IELTS essays. In this video, I will teach you the importance of showing the opposing viewpoint in writing and speech. You will learn how to use words like "although", "even though", "despite", "in spite of", and "nevertheless". These words help you effectively introduce opposing ideas or facts in speech and writing. Despite it sounding complicated and fancy, it is quite easy to learn! You can practice your new English skills by doing our quiz at the end of the lesson. http://www.engvid.com/how-to-express-opposing-ideas-in-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you a very good and useful trick on how to write essays, how to sound better when you speak, how to do better in presentations. This tip is very useful if you are taking the TOEFL or the IELTS, or if you are studying in college, university, or high school. Okay? So it's a very, very useful trick. This trick is called... Well, I'm calling it: "How to Start Right". Okay? So I'm going to teach you a great way to start, either in your essays or in your speech. Oftentimes, if you're taking the TOEFL or the IELTS, you're going to be asked to give your opinion on something. Okay? In general life, you might have to give your opinion on something. Maybe somebody wants to know: what do you prefer? Do you prefer going to a restaurant, or do you prefer eating at home? What's better? Okay? When you give your opinion, it's a very good idea to start by saying what is good about the opposite opinion. Okay? So, example: if I love restaurants, I want to eat at a restaurant, instead of just saying: "I love restaurants." A better way to start this is by saying the opposite, the good part of the opposite. So, how can I do this? Well, I can say something like: "Although some people love eating at home, I prefer eating at a restaurant." Okay? Another example. Imagine somebody wants to know if I like cats better or dogs better. What is the better animal? Well, maybe if I like dogs better, I would say: "Although some people prefer cats, I prefer dogs.", "Although some people prefer to live in cold countries, I prefer warm countries." So, you can use this in essays, in speaking, in so many different ways. It's always a good idea to start with the opposite of what you believe, a good point of the opposite, and then to say your opinion. Okay? So, I want you to try this. Okay? I'm going to give you a question, and I want you to use this formula. What do you prefer, waking up early or waking up late? Okay? So: "Although some people prefer waking up..., I prefer waking up..." and here you would say either "early" or "late". Okay? So, I've used this word "although". "Although" is to show this contrast. Okay? It's a very, very great word, useful word when you're writing essays or speaking in a formal setting. Something that has the same meaning as "although" is "even though". Okay? So very similar. "Even though". And we can use the same formula. Okay? If I ask you: "Would you rather go to a beach or go skiing?" You can say: "Even though some people love going to beaches, I prefer skiing.", "Even though skiing is a lot of fun, I'd rather go to the beach." Okay? So, again, you're offering the opposite idea first, and then your idea. Great for TOEFL and IELTS speaking. Okay, so let's look at these sentence structures a little bit closer. So, I have here my words: "Although", "even though". What follows is a subject. A subject can be words like: "some people", can be "he", "she", "we", "the teacher". Okay? So, the subject is pretty much a noun. "Although Canada", okay? "Although Canada", "Even though Canada..." Now you need a verb. "Even though Canada", can use the verb "is". "Even though Canada is a good country", okay, if I was writing now, I would put a comma. "Even though Canada is a good country, Canada has problems." So what I'm trying to get at here is that if you use "although", you will have two parts of a sentence. You will have part one before the comma, which has a subject and a verb; and then you will have a second part, part two with a subject and a verb. Okay? So let me give you one more example. "Although learning English is fun, many students find it difficult." Okay? "Although some people like learning English, I prefer learning French." Okay? Just some examples of these types of ideas. So let's look at a couple more expressions to help you show the opposite view. Okay, so let's look at some more words that you can use to show the opposing side. Okay? We can use the word "despite". "Despite" is very similar to "although" and "even though".

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
 
13:04
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

On the morning of June 6, 1944, nearly 160,000 allied soldiers crossed the English Channel and stormed five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of Normandy, France. The United States led the assault to try to retake the western coast of Europe from the Germans, who had conquered and been occupying it for four years. In the months and weeks leading up to the invasion, the allies used a variety of means to deceive the Germans, who knew an attack was coming, but didn't know where it be focused. After postponing the invasion by a day because of bad weather, the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces, American General Dwight D. Eisenhower, gave the go-ahead for the operation, codenamed Neptune. Shortly after midnight, 24,000 British, US, and Canadian airborne troops parachuted into France. Around the same time, minesweepers began clearing channels for the invasion fleet, which was comprised of almost 7,000 boats of all types--although around 4,100 of these were landing crafts carrying infantrymen. The Germans, by contrast, had just over 100 total ships in the area at the time and were heavily outnumbered. The same was true for the German Air Force, which could muster only 815 aircraft over Normandy in comparison to the Allies' 9,500. Naval bombardment of the beaches commenced at 05:45 AM, while it was still dark. Allied infantry and armoured divisions began landing on the coast of France starting at 06:30. The men landed under heavy fire from gun emplacements overlooking the beaches. The shore was mined and covered with wooden stakes, metal tripods, and barbed wire obstacles, making the work of the beach clearing teams difficult and dangerous. Casualties were heaviest at Omaha, with its high cliffs. At Gold, Juno, and Sword, several towns were cleared in house-to-house fighting. The Allies did not achieve all of their goals on D-Day. Only Juno and Gold beach were linked in the first 24 hours, and all five bridgeheads were not connected until nearly a week had passed. However, the operation was successful as the Allies gained a precious foothold that gradually expanded as they drove into Germany from the west over the coming months. German casualties on D-Day were around 1,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 12,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead. With Russia bearing down from the east, the European side of World War II ended with the surrender of Germany less than a year after the Normandy operation. Once Japan surrendered in September, 1945, the deadliest conflict in human history was over. It had taken the lives of anywhere from 50 to 85 million people. The outcome of the war has been critical in shaping the geopolitical landscape of the last 70 years. The victorious great powers—the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France, and what is now the Russian Federation—became the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

Study Finds Drop in Deaths of Mothers in Developing World
 
04:01
This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish A new study says fewer women in developing nations are dying of pregnancy-related causes. Researchers estimated how many mothers died during or soon after childbirth in one hundred eighty-one countries. They found a drop of more than thirty-five percent worldwide in the past thirty years. By their count, the number fell from more than a half-million in nineteen eighty to about three hundred forty-three thousand in two thousand eight. That year, about two hundred fifty mothers died for every one hundred thousand live births. The researchers say the maternal death rate has been falling almost one and a half percent a year since nineteen ninety. Earlier reports suggested little change between nineteen eighty and nineteen ninety, but the new study disputes that. The researchers used government records, medical records, surveys and other information. They say the progress is a result of greater efforts to reduce maternal deaths. Christopher Murray at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle led the study. He says more education of women in developing countries has helped lower maternal death rates. More of them are giving birth in hospitals. Doctor Murray says lower fertility rates around the world, combined with higher earnings, are also reducing deaths. The nations found to have the biggest reductions were Egypt, Ecuador and Bolivia. The researchers say China also had a sharp drop. But since nineteen ninety maternal death rates have risen in some countries. Zimbabwe, for example, had a five and one-half percent increase per year. Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia also had increases. H.I.V. has slowed the progress in reducing maternal deaths. The study linked almost one in every five such deaths in two thousand eight to the virus that causes AIDS. The researchers say maternal deaths rates have also increased in some wealthy countries. They found the number in the United States rose almost forty-two percent since nineteen ninety. Countries such as Canada and Norway also had increases. Doctor Murray says at least part of the increase is likely the result of better record keeping. The study, in the Lancet, also included the University of Queensland in Australia. And that's the VOA Special English Health Report. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 14Apr2010)

13 Tips on How to Survive Wild Animal Attacks
 
10:16
How to survive bear or shark attack? What should you do if you are bitten by a snake? We've gathered 13 easy tips that will save your life if you do meet a wild animal. Watch the video, make notes, and remember to give us thumbs up for worrying about your well-being! TIMESTAMPS How to survive a shark attack 1:18 How to survive a kangaroo attack 2:09 How to survive a lion attack 2:51 How to survive an elephant attack 3:33 How to survive a rhinoceros attack 4:11 How to survive a hippopotamus attack 4:43 How to survive a bull attack 5:24 How to survive a jellyfish attack 5:53 How to survive an alligator or crocodile attack 6:31 How to survive snake attack 7:18 How to survive a bear attack 7:49 How to survive gorilla attack 8:38 How to survive bees attack 9:16 Music: Summer Smile - Silent Partner SUMMARY Many wild animals can be dangerous or even fatal for a person. If you look at the statistics, you might feel terrified. - Sharks cause just six deaths a year - their infamous reputation is very exaggerated. - Wolves are responsible for ten deaths annually. - Lions kill 22 people a year. - Now get ready: elephants, cute lovely giants, are the reason that more than 500 people lose their lives every year! - Hippopotamuses equal them in this scary competition. - Crocodiles turn out to be much more dangerous than sharks: about one thousand deaths a year. - But the champion here is the snake: 100,000 people meet their end at the teeth of this reptile. We hope you will never have to escape from a rhinoceros, swim away from a crocodile, or meet a hungry lion. However, now you will be able to protect yourself in the wilderness.

80 officials from developing countries, int'l orgs visit Korea to learn election process
 
04:51
우리나라의 선거시스템을 배우러 온 ODA 국가들 While most Koreans focused mainly on who will be the next president... there are those who paid more attention to every other detail leading up to the anticipated result. For our News Feature tonight, Oh Jung-hee follows the foreign officials... who visited South Korea to see and learn the overall election process. Experts from around the world here in one place to discuss how to hold effective and fair elections. This is the 2017 Seoul International Forum on Elections held on Sunday,... just two days before Koreans went to the polls on May 9th to elect a new president. "The impeachment of a president is an unfortunate event for the country... but that is also the reason why we're tasked with holding a fair election... to choose a leader who can bring about change." "We had to advance the date of this forum from December to May to coincide with our presidential election schedule. Developing countries are very interested in how Korea's elections resolve conflicts among the people without violence. Because if those countries were faced with something like what's happened recently in Korea, they could descend into civil war." Roughly 80 officials from 30 countries and 6 international organizations... exchanged ideas on policy-focused elections, freedom of expression and civic participation in politics. Korea has hosted this forum every year since 2014... to share its unique experience of achieving both economic development and democratization at the same time. "But the information exchange doesn't end at the forum. At the moment, the officials are in the midst of a tour of the National Election Commission and other government agencies... to get a closer look at Korea's election system." What got the most attention from the election officials... was Korea's early voting system: citizens who can't make it to the polls on election day can cast their ballots in advance for a two-day period at any polling station in the country. And because they're not required to go to their officially designated polling place,... early voting contributes greatly to a high turnout. "We were very impressed by, number one, the turnout. There were a lot of people who voted at the particular polling space we visited. Second it was very ordered and efficient. It took you just one to two minutes even if you were a voter out of the district." "We're thinking of how we could put it into place. At least, one is not forced to go back to where you're supposed to vote. With us, you have to change your address at the register point so that your records could be moved to your new place." One thing that enables such convenient voting is that the voter registration list includes the IDs of all the voters in the country -- meaning no separate sign-up process. It's systemized and accessible from anywhere... so that voters can be identified at any polling station. The extent to which other countries can adopt an advanced electoral system like that differs depending on their circumstances. But Korea still chooses to share its technologies with developing countries... as part of its official development assistance program. "The National Election Commission exported optical ballot counting machines to Kyrgyzstan in 2015 and 2016 for 9 million U.S. dollars... and to Ecuador for this year's presidential election. Iraq also plans to buy Korean election equipment worth over 90 million dollars." "In 2013, Kyrgyzstan received from Korea an optical ballot count machine that sends election results immediately to a central server. Thanks to that, we no longer saw conflict after our elections and people now trust the results. It's a case of Kyrgyzstan being complemented by Korean technology." The final day for Koreans came, and the election officials from overseas headed to the polling stations in Seoul... to see how voting is conducted throughout the day. Comparing this process with those of their home countries,... the officials were impressed, and were looking forward to see how Korea's election would turn out. "I can see observers from each party but they are participating so well that it's hard to tell which one they're from. I hope we can do the same for the next year's presidential election in Paraguay. "Voters are casting their votes in an orderly manner and the election is carried out so peacefully. The overall system is well constructed. Voting ends at 8, and I'm hoping to see how the ballots are counted as well." Oh Jung-hee, Arirang News.

My story for vaccines | Utibe Effiong | TEDxBerlin
 
15:14
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. He talks about preventing chronic diseases in developing countries, with a particular focus on diabetes, one of the fastest growing health challenges in Africa. After working as an internist in southern Nigeria, Utibe Effiong was inspired to look at the broader determinants of health and healthcare in the developing world. Nigeria’s booming oil industry accounts for more than 90 percent of the country’s earnings, but is also increasingly harmful to public health due to a series of environmental and occupational disasters. Now specializing in environmental health and infectious disease epidemiology, Effiong says he is working toward a future “where the exploitation of the earth’s energy resources does not hinder the development of our societies.” Effiong recently obtained the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of Michigan School of Public Health.

The Sustainable Development Goals – Action Towards 2030 | CAFOD and SDGs
 
05:53
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as part of Agenda 2030 – see: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld Sustainable Development Goals – your questions answered: http://cafod.org.uk/News/Campaigning-news/Sustainable-Development-Goals In Video 1, CAFOD explains what the SDGs are and why they are transformational in the way the world fights extreme poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. In Video 2: CAFOD explains what civil society groups can get involved and help make sure we get there. “We are faced not with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental. Strategies for a solution demand an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the same time protecting nature.” – Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 139. In 2015, world leaders from 193 countries agreed the Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – the world’s new action plan for the next 15 years to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, fight inequality, tackle climate change and achieve sustainable development for all. The SDGs follow the Millennium Development Goals - or MDGs –agreed in 2000 in a global coordinated attempt to tackle development issues. There are four underlining principles that come with the SDGs and that are transformational in the way we work on development in the future: Firstly they are universal and apply to every country, rich and poor, north and south, developed and developing. Secondly, they integrate all dimensions of sustainability: economic development, social progress and environmental protection. Thirdly, the SDGs tell us we should leave no one behind. And finally, the SDGs require the participation of all. Taken together with the Paris Climate Change agreement and the Pope’s Encyclical Laudato Si, the SDGs provide a new framework for approaching sustainable development. Animation by Dee at https://sketchpadstudio.com/ --- CAFOD works in communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America, helping people to tackle the poverty and injustice they face. We work wherever the need is greatest, with people of all faiths and none. Learn about CAFOD: http://www.cafod.org.uk/

The Cold War was called cold because of the lack of actual fighting, but this is inaccurate. There was plenty of fighting, from Korea to Viet Nam to Afghanistan, but we'll get into that stuff next week. This week we'll talk about how the Cold War started. In short it grew out of World War II. Basically, the Soviets occupied eastern Europe, and the US supported western Europe. This setup would spill across the world, with client states on both sides. It's all in the video. You should just watch it.

PSYCHOTHERAPY - Sigmund Freud

USA vs USSR Fight! The Cold War: Crash Course World History #39
 
12:16
In which John Green teaches you about the Cold War, which was occasionally hot, but on average, it was just cool. In the sense of its temperature. It was by no means cool, man. After World War II, there were basically two big geopolitical powers left to divide up the world. And divide they did. The United States and the Soviet Union divvied up Europe in the aftermath of the war, and then proceeded to spend the next 45 years fighting over the rest of the world. It was the great ideological struggle, with the US on the side of capitalism and profit, and the USSR pushing Communism, so-called. While both sides presented themselves as the good guy in this situation, the reality is that there are no good guys. Both parties to the Cold War engaged in forcible regime changes, built up vast nuclear arsenals, and basically got up to dirty tricks. If you had to pick a bad guy though, I would point out that the USSR had no intention of bringing Laika the Cosmonaut Dog home alive. That poor dog never had a shot. Sorry to disappoint, but the economist t-shirts are not a real product. Thanks to Raoul Meyer for the YUGOGAL photo.

In which John Green teaches you about conflict in Israel and Palestine. This conflict is often cast as a long-term beef going back thousands of years, and rooted in a clash between religions. Well, that's not quite true. What is true is that the conflict is immensely complicated, and just about everyone in the world has an opinion about it. John is going to try to get the facts across in under 13 minutes.

Building blocks for organizational effectiveness – Marco Boscolo
 
17:35
Many countries face formidable challenges to maintain the integrity of their natural resources and to mobilize and use effectively resources available to manage climate-induced threats. Bangladesh, however, is pioneering an innovative multi-sectoral country investment plan approach. During the orientation session “Understanding, developing and implementing cross-sectoral country investment plans”, held at FAO Headquarters in Rome from 13–15 October 2014, FAO experts provided high level government officials from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Peru and Tanzania with concepts, lessons learned, and discussion questions to help participants understand what is involved in the development and implementation of a country investment plan in the environment, forestry and climate change sectors. Marco Boscolo, FAO forestry officer, talks about the building blocks of organizational effectiveness. For more information, see http://www.fao.org/forestry/institutions/87824/en/

If your New Year's resolution is to improve your English, you can start right here and now! TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/happy-new-year-expressions-customs-vocabulary/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid, and today we're doing a special lesson on celebrating the New Year. So, let's get rid of these colourful decorations and get started. Okay, so first of all, I know there are all kinds of New Years. Right? There are religious New Years, there are national New Years, but in today's lesson we're going to focus on the New Year that starts on January 1st, which is considered the calendar New Year or the Western New Year, or the Gregorian calendar New Year. Okay? So, let's first understand the terms. All right? So, January 1st is considered New Year's Day. December 31st, the day before that and the year before that is considered New Year's Eve. Now, when we say "eve" it means the day before, the evening before, the day before. For example, if Christmas is on December 25th, Christmas Eve is December 24th. So when we have the word "eve", it's always the day before. Okay? All right. So, what I'm going to explain today is how we celebrate the New Year in many English-speaking countries, some of the customs and traditions that we follow, and also some of the things that we say. How do we wish people? How do you greet people? Right? And also some of the things... Special things that you do. All right. So, first let's talk about some of the things that people normally do on December 31st, which is the day when we actually start celebrating and then we go into the New Year. Okay? So, what do we do? We get all dressed up. It's usually a very fun time. It's a very fun time, it's a very special time. And it's also a very meaningful time because the New Year represents a fresh start, a new page, a new chapter in your life. Okay? A chance to do new things, to have new plans, and so on. So it's considered a very special time, people are usually very excited because we all like to have another chance at getting things right in our life, or improving ourselves or improving our life. And that's what New Year's represents to lots of people. So, this is what they do. Usually this is what we do. We dress up in our fancy clothes, many people. It's very, very popular to go to parties. Now, these parties can be of all kinds. You could have a small party at home with just your family and friends, you could have a medium-sized party where you go to a restaurant or a club and they are having a special kind of a celebration for the New Year, and maybe they have a lot of TVs on where they're watching New Year's celebrations in different parts of the world. Or you go... Could go to a large party which is outdoors, maybe it's in a City Hall. Lots of people from different parts of the city come there, they congregate, and they have concerts, music, and all kinds of fun things happening. Or the most famous party, one of the most famous parties and probably one of the largest parties in the whole world that takes place on New Year happens in New York City in Times Square. You might have watched it on television. There, that party, if we can call it that, has a million visitors and lots of other special traditions. There's a very famous thing that happens at midnight, there's a huge crystal ball, it weighs about 5,000 kilos and it's huge, and it's made of crystal, and in the last 10 seconds of the... Of New Year's Eve and going into New Year's Day, the crystal ball begins to drop and what we have is a countdown to the New Year. So everybody goes: "10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1", and then: "Happy New Year!" and all the craziness starts. Okay? So that's the biggest party that's probably happening anywhere in the world, which is in Times Square in New York. So, parties, very popular. It doesn't mean that if you don't have a party it's not the New Year. You can have a party by yourself and say: "You know what? I'm happy being by myself", but I'm just telling you what lots of people like to do. So usually we get together with our family and friends. We... As I said, when we go out we attend concerts, we listen to music, people are dancing and people are having fun, they're joking, they're laughing, they're being silly.
