The Circular Flow Model of a Market Economy
 
12:37
By this point in your course you may have learned the definition of a market: A place where buyers and sellers meet to engage in mutually beneficial exchanges. But what is a market economy? Two basic types of markets exist in any market economy: resource markets and product markets. The exchanges that take place in these markets benefit both the households and the firms that engage in exchanges. This lesson will introduce the circular flow of money, resources and goods and services in a market economy. We will examine how resources flow from households to firms, and goods and services from firms to households. We will also seek to explain why individuals are willing to engage in the exchanges that characterize the market system.

What is Turmeric Good For? 10 Turmeric Health Benefits
 
04:22
Lots of people use the turmeric herb in their cooking. The main signs of turmeric are its pepper- like smell, sharp taste, and golden color. Turmeric is known to stop swelling, kill bacteria and viruses, as well as many other things. It is also full of nutrients, like protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamins C, E, and K, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. Because of this, turmeric is a great thing to use to cure health problems. Here are the top ten things turmeric can be used for: Prevents Cancer Turmeric can block prostate cancer and even kill cancer cells. It can also stop tumor cells from growing, so it can guard the body from getting cancer in the first place. Relieves Arthritis Because turmeric brings down swelling, it’s great to use for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also kills germs that harm body cells. People with rheumatoid arthritis who eat turmeric all the time have gotten much rest from pain and joint swelling. Controls Diabetes Turmeric can help cure diabetes, by keeping insulin at normal levels. It also helps with sugar control, and makes the medicine used for diabetes work. But if used with strong medicines, turmeric can cause low blood sugar, so make sure to ask your doctor before you take turmeric capsules. Reduces Cholesterol Levels Using turmeric as a spice can bring down cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol can cause other health problems, it is important to stay on top of it to stop heart disease. Immunity Booster Turmeric helps keep the body’s immune system going. It also helps strengthen the immune system, because it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This stops you from getting colds, coughs, and the flu. To help you feel better if you do get sick, mix one teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of warm milk and drink it once a day. Heals Wounds Because turmeric naturally kills germs and bacteria, it can be used to clean wounds. If you have a cut or burn, sprinkle some turmeric powder on it to help it heal quicker. It can also help treat psoriasis- itchy, dead skin- and other skin conditions. Weight Management Turmeric powder can help keep the body at a proper weight, by helping break down fat. Someone who wants to lose weight or treat obesity and sicknesses that come with it, can have one teaspoon of turmeric with every meal. Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease Swelling of the brain is one of the main reasons for cognitive disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric can keep the brain healthy, by helping oxygen flow. This can also slow down or totally stop Alzheimer’s disease. Improves Digestion Turmeric can help with digestion, by lessening bloating and gas. It can also help treat inflammatory bowel disease. But be careful, because if you suffer from a gallbladder disease you should not take turmeric, as that can make it worse. Also, if you have a digestive problem, it is best to eat raw turmeric, and not capsules. Prevents Liver Disease Turmeric is a natural way to force poisons from the liver. The liver takes poison out of the blood, and turmeric helps make the enzymes that keep it working. It also helps strengthen, and better blood flow. All of this helps to keep the liver healthy. Because of all the ways turmeric can help your health, adding this herb to your diet is a great idea.

Universal Mathematics: All Life on Earth Is Bound by One Spooky Algorithm | Geoffrey West
 
09:15
Are we all connected? Mathematically, yes. It might seem like a stretch, but all living organisms on earth are connected by a unified theory. The more into the (metaphor alert) nuts and bolts of it all, the more science is finding just how connected we all are by way of energy and resources being supplied to cells—and by a methodology known as quarter scaling. The larger something is the longer it lives. Let's say there's a dog that is 500 times bigger than a mouse: in essence, we can then estimate that the dog's lifespan will be about 125 times greater than the mouse. An elephant's heart beats a lot slower than a human's heart, but our hearts beat slower than a mouse and a dogs. It's all interconnected! Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/geoffrey-west-universal-mathematics-the-spooky-uniformity-of-life-on-earth Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Geoffrey West: So I think it’s one of the more remarkable properties of life actually, but just taking mammals: that the largest mammal, the whale, is—in terms of measurable quantities of its physiology and its life history—is actually a scaled up version of the smallest mammal which is actually the shrew, but a mouse is very close to that. And everything in between, that they are scaled version of one another and in a systematic predictable way to sort of 80 percent or 90 percent level. So the kinds of things that you might measure might be as mundane as the length of the aorta, which is the first tube coming out of your heart, or it could be something as sophisticated and complex as how long each one of these mammals, for example, is going to live or how long it takes to mature. So all of these things scale in a very predictable way and they scale in a way that’s nonlinear. So even though it’s simple it’s highly nonlinear, and that can be expressed in the following way. So perhaps the most well known of these is the scaling of metabolic rate. And metabolic rate is maybe the most fundamental quantity of life because metabolic rate simply means how much energy or just how much food does an animal need to eat each day in order to stay alive. And everybody’s used to that and is familiar with that. It’s sort of roughly 2,000 food calories a day for a human being. So you can ask “what is that for different mammals?” and what you find is that they’re related to one another in a very simple way despite the fact that metabolism is maybe the most complex physical chemical process in the universe. It’s phenomenal because metabolism is taking essentially almost inorganic, something that’s inorganic an making it into life. And so here’s this extraordinary complex process and yet it scales in a very simple way. And you can express it in English, it can be expressed quite precisely in a very simple mathematical equation but in English it’s—roughly speaking—that every time you double the size of an organism from say two grams to four grams or from 20 grams to 40 grams or 20 kilograms to 40 kilograms or whatever and just doubling anywhere. Instead of what you might naively expect—double the size, you double the number of cells roughly speaking; therefore, you would expect to double the amount of energy, the amount of metabolic energy you need to keep that organism alive because you have twice as many cells—Quite the contrary you don’t need twice as much. Systematically you only need roughly speaking 75 percent as much. So there’s this kind of systematic 25 percent, one-quarter “savings.”

Puzzle of Growth: Rich Countries and Poor Countries
 
08:33
Throughout this section of the course, we’ve been trying to solve a complicated economic puzzle—why are some countries rich and others poor? There are various factors at play, interacting in a dynamic, and changing environment. And the final answer to the puzzle differs depending on the perspective you're looking from. In this video, you'll examine different pieces of the wealth puzzle, and learn about how they fit. The first piece of the puzzle, is about productivity. You'll learn how physical capital, human capital, technological knowledge, and entrepreneurs all fit together to spur higher productivity in a population. From this perspective, you'll see economic growth as a function of a country's factors of production. You’ll also learn what investments can be made to improve and increase these production factors. Still, even that is too simplistic to explain everything. So we'll also introduce you to another piece of the puzzle: incentives. In previous videos, you learned about the incentives presented by different economic, cultural, and political models. In this video, we'll stay on that track, showing how different incentives produce different results. As an example, you'll learn why something as simple as agriculture isn't nearly so simple at all. We'll put you in the shoes of a hypothetical farmer, for a bit. In those shoes, you'll see how incentives can mean the difference between getting to keep a whole bag of potatoes from your farm, or just a hundredth of a bag from a collective farm. (Trust us, the potatoes explain a lot.) Potatoes aside, you're also going to see how different incentives shaped China's economic landscape during the “Great Leap Forward” of the 1950s and 60s. With incentives as a lens, you'll see why China's supposed leap forward ended in starvation for tens of millions. Hold on—incentives still aren’t the end of it. After all, incentives have to come from somewhere. That “somewhere” is institutions. As we showed you before, institutions dictate incentives. Things like property rights, cultural norms, honest governments, dependable laws, and political stability, all create incentives of different kinds. Remember our hypothetical farmer? Through that farmer, you'll learn how different institutions affect all of us. You'll see how institutions help dictate how hard a person works, and how likely he or she is to invest in the economy, beyond that work. Then, once you understand the full effect of institutions, you'll go beyond that, to the final piece of the wealth puzzle. And it's the most mysterious piece, too. Why? Because the final piece of the puzzle is the amorphous combination of a country’s history, ideas, culture, geography, and even a little luck. These things aren't as direct as the previous pieces, but they matter all the same. You'll see why the US constitution is the way it is, and you'll learn about people like Adam Smith and John Locke, whose ideas helped inform it. And if all this talk of pieces makes you think that the wealth puzzle is a complex one, you’d be right. Because the truth is, the question of “what creates wealth?” really is complex. Even the puzzle pieces you'll learn about don't constitute every variable at play. And as we mentioned earlier, not only are the factors complex, but they're also constantly changing as they bump against each other. Luckily, while the quest to finish the wealth puzzle isn’t over, at least we have some of the pieces in hand. So take the time to dive in and listen to this video and let us know if you have questions along the way. After that, we'll soon head into a new section of the course: we’ll tackle the factors of production so we can further explore what leads to economic growth.

To Seventh-day Adventists: A Warning About False Tests
 
27:11
🔴 VIEW UPDATED VERSION: https://goo.gl/XQnvnk To Seventh-day Adventists: A Warning About False Tests | Seventh-day Adventists—unlike any other Christian Church on earth—have been called by God Himself to boldly proclaim the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12 to a lost and dying world before Jesus Christ returns (see verses 14-16). Unfortunately, many Adventists are being sidetracked from their holy mission by certain movements within the Adventist church itself claiming to have “new light,” or “new truths,” that are being presented as “new tests" for Adventists themselves. Pastor Wohlberg warns that 2520, feast-keeping, and anti-Trinity ideas are fueling intensive controversy, division, and diversion—which is exactly what the devil wants. **White Horse Media Position Statement and Resources About the 2520, Feasts, Trinity** 9T 19 says that Seventh-day Adventists are called by God to proclaim the three angels’ messages (Revelation 14:6-12) to the world. They “should allow nothing else to absorb their attention.” In the past, much time and attention has been lost by those consumed with advocating errant theology and non-issues. This short position statement briefly addresses three issues affecting many in God’s Church today. It also lists resources available for those wrestling with these debates. Whereas these are the positions of White Horse Media, we believe they are in line with those of the world church. "The supposed 2,520 prophecy in Leviticus 26. The 2,520 was on the earliest 1843 Millerite chart. It was on the 1850 chart, but in smaller print. When the SDA church was organized in 1863, it was removed from the 1864 chart (which EGW supported, 1T 666), and never reappeared. Thus, while taught by our Millerite forerunners, it was never part of official SDA doctrine. We believe the SDA church abandoned it because it wasn’t biblical. We agree with James White’s January 26, 1864 Review article that such a prophecy doesn’t exist. In all of her writings, EGW never specifically mentioned the 2,520 even once. That is enough for us." Resource: Prophecy’s Blind Date: 2520(https://www.whitehorsemedia.com/product/prophecys-blind-date-2520/), by Steve Wohlberg. Available from White Horse Media. **NOTE: White Horse Media only endorses the statements below in the context of these subjects. This does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of other statements made by these same individuals in other settings. "Keeping the feasts. GC 605 says that 'The Sabbath will be the great test of loyalty; for it is the point of truth especially controverted.' Nowhere in GC are feasts included as tests of loyalty. The Sabbath was given before sin (Gen. 2:1-3), is one of the Ten Commandments (Ex. 20:8-11), and was written with God’s finger (Ex. 31:18), whereas the feasts entered after sin, were written by Moses, and are types pointing to Jesus. EGW never directly commanded feast-keeping. On the night of the Lord’s supper, 'Christ was standing at the point of transition between two economies and their two great festivals…He would thus bring to an end the system of types and ceremonies that for four thousand years had pointed to His death…The national festival of the Jews [the Passover] was to pass away forever.'” DA 652." Resource: Feast Days(http://www.worldincrisis.org/Harvestime-Books/FeastDays.pdf), by Vance Ferrell. Available from White Horse Media. "The Trinity. Yes, many of our pioneers opposed a Trinity. Overall, their writings are very valuable, but not infallible. SDA doctrines should be based on the Bible and SOP, not on men’s words. Jesus said people should be baptized in “the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19). EGW wrote, “In Christ is life, original, unborrowed, underived.” DA 530. She also wrote, 'Sin could be resisted and overcome only through the mighty agency of the Third Person of the Godhead, who would come with no modified energy, but in the fullness of divine power.' DA 671. About the Holy Spirit, Jesus said, 'I will send Him to you.' John 16:7. 'The nature of the Holy Spirit is a mystery. Men cannot explain it…Regarding such mysteries, which are too deep for human understanding, silence is golden.' AA, 52. We believe our current SDA position on the Godhead reflects an advancement of truth in harmony with the Bible and SOP." Resource: The Trinity Debate: Defending the Indefensible (https://www.scribd.com/document/139266639/VERY-IMPORTANT-The-Trinity-Debate-Brian-Neumann), by Brian Neumann. The Doctrine of the Trinity Among Seventh-day Adventists: http://www.atsjats.org/publication_file.php?pub_id=242&journal=1&type=pdf We don’t wish to have our attention absorbed in debating these issues, but to do God’s work of lifting up Jesus Christ, leading sinners to His love, and to His cross, and focusing our attention on giving the three angels’ messages to the world. Here we stand.

Michio Kaku predicts asteroid mining will happen sooner than you think
 
04:14
Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

Still Report #947 - You Tube Begins Economic Blacklisting
 
06:57
For the first time, I’m beginning to fear that one morning I could awaken to find all 1,225 of our reports scrubbed from YouTube. Why? Because, apparently they are becoming increasingly annoying to our current political/economic structure. My last four reports have fallen victim to a new economic blacklisting policy – YouTube’s dreaded golden dollar sign label which, according to YouTube, labels a report as “not advertiser friendly.” This means that no ads may be placed within the content and therefore no ad income derived from that report. We cover controversial topics, and we ARE very opinionated with our political views, however, there is no excuse to economically blacklist them. We maintain a very strict policy of removing all obscenities, or what is popularly termed “hate speech”, such as threats or name calling. Removing such hateful comments takes us many hours per week but it keeps us right in the heart of our 1st Amendment protections. The goal is to produce a channel that is “family friendly” so that even home-schooling parents can feel comfortable giving their children unlimited access to this channel without fear of them picking up any bad influences -- other than the habit of supporting human freedom worldwide. So, our content exists completely within a framework of “decency” and within that framework we discuss threats to human freedom. We do not hide the fact that we believe that the Obama administration is an ominous chapter in American history – probably the greatest threat to this nation’s liberties since our founding. And for writing these words alone, this report will now, no doubt, earn YouTube’s dreaded gold dollar sign. In other words, we will be publishing this content in the public interest alone. As you all know, we run this channel on nothing but these ad revenues and the generosity of our viewers, so this is a significant problem. But we will continue practicing our 1st Amendment right of free speech as long as we can and trust that this will be financially sufficient to keep us in health and home until this dark cloud passes. Fortunately, YouTube has left one window open for income despite the dreaded golden dollar sign – that is at the end of every report you will see this flash up on the screen about 30 seconds from the end. Click on it and the Support Bill Still window pops up. Why is freedom of speech so important to the overall cause of human freedom? In 1605, Francis Bacon wrote in his book, “The Advancement of Learning: “Liberty of speech inviteth and proveketh liberty to be used again, and so bringeth much to a man's knowledge.” As Benjamin Franklin put it 1722: “Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom…. “This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of speech always go together…. “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech; a thing terrible to Publick Traytors.” In 1966, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart wrote: “Censorship … is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime.” In 1928, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers.” On August 8, 1950, President Harry Truman put it this way: On May 27, 2016, we published “Still Report #898 – First Superbug Found Resistant to All Antibiotics.” It contains zero political opinion. It concerns the appearance of a new infectious agent that is resistant to all known antibiotics, called mcr-1. It quotes the head of the CDC, Dr. Thomas Frieden who warned last month that: “We risk being in a post-antibiotic world.” "It is dangerous and we would assume it can be spread quickly, even in a hospital environment if it is not well contained." It also talks about osteopathy which believes that many human diseases can be cured naturally merely by removing the mechanical restrictions of the mis-aligned areas of a patient’s skeletal structure. According to Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, writing in 1909 in “The Journal of Osteopathy”: “Osteopathy relies upon the inherent powers of the human body to secure and maintain health so long as its structural integrity is maintained, harmonious action of its parts is secured by mechanical adjustment, only healthy foods are administered, and Nature’s laws are observed.” “Any obstruction to the free flow of the body fluids or harmonious workings of its parts constitute lesions that result in diseased conditions.” “The Journal of Osteopathy”, Vol. XVI, #3, Kirksville, MO, March 1909, p. 151-158” Do drug companies feel threatened by these statements to the point where they can insist that YouTube blacklist this vital report to the American people? Apparently so. I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.

The Real Adam Smith: Morality and Markets - Full Video
 
56:47
The Real Adam Smith: A Personal Exploration by Johan Norberg, takes an intriguing, two-part look at Smith and the evolution and relevance of his ideas today, both economic and ethical. It’s difficult to imagine that a man who lived with horse drawn carriages and sailing ships would foresee our massive 21st century global market exchange, much less the relationship between markets and morality. But Adam Smith was no ordinary 18th century figure. Considered the “father of modern economics,” Smith was first and foremost a moral philosopher. The revolutionary ideas he penned in The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of Moral Sentiments, changed the world. Morality and Markets is the first hour, which takes an intriguing look at Smith, his background and the evolution of his ideas, both economic and ethical. Norberg travels Europe to locales where Smith was born, educated and spent his life teaching, writing and advocating his revolutionary ideas on markets and human morality.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT SOUTH KOREA || साउत कोरीया की 11 बाते || SOUTH KOREA FACTS IN HINDI
 
10:07
HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT UNIQUE AND AMAZING FACTS ABOUT SOUTH KOREA. #SOUTHKOREA #SOUTHKOREAFACTS #SOUTHKOREAKEBAAREMEIN South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and lying to the east of the Asian mainland.[12] The name Korea is derived from Goguryeo which was one of the great powers in East Asia during its time,[13][14][15][16] ruling most of the Korean Peninsula, Manchuria, parts of the Russian Far East[17] and Inner Mongolia,[18] under Gwanggaeto the Great.[19] South Korea lies in the north temperate zone and has a predominantly mountainous terrain. It comprises an estimated 51.4 million residents distributed over 100,363 km2 (38,750 sq mi).[20][21] The capital and largest city is Seoul, with a population of 10 million. Archaeology indicates that the Korean Peninsula was inhabited by early humans starting from the Lower Paleolithic period (2.6 Ma–300 Ka).[22][23] The history of Korea begins with the foundation of Gojoseon in 2333 BC by the mythic king Dangun,but no archaeological evidence and writing was found from this period. The Gija Joseon was purportedly founded in 11th century BCE, and its existence and role has been controversial in the modern era.The written historical record on Gojoseon (Old Joseon) was first mentioned in Chinese records in the early 7th century BCE.[24] Following the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea under Unified Silla in AD 668, Korea was subsequently ruled by the Goryeo dynasty (918–1392) and the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910). It was annexed by the Empire of Japan in 1910. At the end of World War II, Korea was divided into Soviet and U.S. zones of occupations. A separate election was held in the U.S. zone in 1948 which led to the creation of the Republic of Korea (ROK), while the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) was established in the Soviet zone. The United Nations at the time passed a resolution declaring the ROK to be the only lawful government in Korea.[25] The Korean War began in 1950 when forces from the North invaded the South. The war lasted three years and involved the U.S., China, the Soviet Union and several other nations. The border between the two nations remains the most heavily fortified in the world.[26] Under long-time military leader Park Chung-hee, the South Korean economy grew significantly and the country was transformed into a G-20 major economy.[27] Military rule ended in 1987, and the country is now a presidential republic consisting of 17 administrative divisions. South Korea is a developed country and a high-income economy, with a "very high" Human Development Index, ranking 22nd in the world. The country is considered a regional power and is the world's 11th largest economy by nominal GDP and the 12th largest by PPP as of 2010.[28] South Korea is a global leader in the industrial and technological sectors, being the world's 5th largest exporter and 8th largest importer. Its export-driven economy primarily focuses production on electronics, automobiles, ships, machinery, petrochemicals and robotics. South Korea is a member of the ASEAN Plus mechanism, the United Nations, Uniting for Consensus, G20, the WTO and OECD and is a founding member of APEC and the East Asia Summit. The name Korea derives from the name Goryeo. The name Goryeo itself was first used by the ancient kingdom of Goguryeo in the 5th century as a shortened form of its name. The 10th-century kingdom of Goryeo succeeded Goguryeo,[29][30][31][32] and thus inherited its name, which was pronounced by the visiting Persian merchants as "Korea".[33] The modern spelling of Korea first appeared in the late 17th century in the travel writings of the Dutch East India Company's Hendrick Hamel.[34] Despite the coexistence of the spellings Corea and Korea in 19th century publications, some Koreans believe that Imperial Japan, around the time of the Japanese occupation, intentionally standardised the spelling on Korea, making Japan appear first alphabetically.[34][35][36] DONT FORGET HIT : L-I-K-E S-H-A-R-E S-U-B-S-C-R-I-B-E AFFILIATE LINKS : MY SET UP : MY PHONE : http://amzn.to/2n85SZR MY COMPUTER : http://amzn.to/2Gcqg4I FOR YOUTUBERS : BEST MIC FOR YOUTUBERS : http://amzn.to/2E3psyb BEST CAMERA FOR YOUTUBERS : http://amzn.to/2n7AF8K BEST LAPTOP FOR YOUTUBERS : http://amzn.to/2n3F78E SOCIAL LINKS : FACEBOOK : https://www.facebook.com/GuriKhindaOfficial INSTAGRAM : https://www.instagram.com/guri_khindaofficial CONTACT FOR SPONSORSHIP : [email protected] BACKGROUND MUSIC :

The Singapore economic model - VPRO documentary - 2009
 
49:28
What is the secret behind the Singapore economic model? If non-Western economies around the world are gaining more and more weight, what economic model could they possibly impose on us in the future? VPRO Backlight is getting enlightened and highlighted in Singapore, which is, according to some, the most successful economic model in the world. VPRO Backlight makes an exploration based on a number of encounters with political and business leaders. Singapore, the city-state in South East Asia, was not much more than a swamp 40 years ago. It had no raw materials, no hinterland and a low-skilled workforce. It is now one of the most successful economies in Asia with a state fund (Temasek) that owns billions and a per capita income that is higher than in the Netherlands: about $ 48,000 against about $ 37,000. The economic model is such a formula for success that even the Chinese leader Deng Xiao-Ping visited Singapore in 1978 to learn from this model, with all its consequences. What is the secret behind the Singapore economic model? VPRO Backlight makes an exploration based on a number of encounters with political and business leaders, including the founder of modern Singapore, former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew (prime minister between 1959 and 1990), political scientist and Asia expert Kishore Mahbubani (from the Lee Kuan Yew School for Public Policy), Singapore-based American super-investor Jim Rogers and former CEO of AkzoNobel Kees van Lede. How do they explain the success of the Singapore model and will this model point the way to Asia and ultimately to the rest of the world towards a future-proof economy?

Jeremy Rifkin: "The Zero Marginal Cost Society" | Talks at Google
 
56:59
In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism. Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a technological revolution that might bring marginal costs to near zero, making goods and services priceless, nearly free, and abundant, and no longer subject to market forces. Now, a formidable new technology infrastructure—the Internet of things (IoT)—is emerging with the potential of pushing large segments of economic life to near zero marginal cost in the years ahead. Rifkin describes how the Communication Internet is converging with a nascent Energy Internet and Logistics Internet to create a new technology platform that connects everything and everyone. Billions of sensors are being attached to natural resources, production lines, the electricity grid, logistics networks, recycling flows, and implanted in homes, offices, stores, vehicles, and even human beings, feeding Big Data into an IoT global neural network. Prosumers can connect to the network and use Big Data, analytics, and algorithms to accelerate efficiency, dramatically increase productivity, and lower the marginal cost of producing and sharing a wide range of products and services to near zero, just like they now do with information goods. Rifkin concludes that capitalism will remain with us, albeit in an increasingly streamlined role, primarily as an aggregator of network services and solutions, allowing it to flourish as a powerful niche player in the coming era. We are, however, says Rifkin, entering a world beyond markets where we are learning how to live together in an increasingly interdependent global Collaborative Commons. --macmillan.com About the Author: Jeremy Rifkin is the bestselling author of twenty books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society, and the environment. He has been an advisor to the European Union for the past decade. Mr. Rifkin also served as an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Jose Socrates of Portugal, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain, and Prime Minister Janez Janša of Slovenia, during their respective European Council Presidencies, on issues related to the economy, climate change, and energy security. Mr. Rifkin is a senior lecturer at the Wharton School's Executive Education Program at the University of Pennsylvania where he instructs CEOs and senior management on transitioning their business operations into sustainable Third Industrial Revolution economies. Mr. Rifkin holds a degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a degree in international affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

Are men obsolete? | FACTUAL FEMINIST
 
04:30
For most of human history, men have been the dominant sex because of their capacity to compete, take risks, and fight for resources. But some claim these masculine traits have become obsolete. Today we need other qualities: empathy, social intuition, emotional intelligence. Here it appears that women excel. Some say men are just passe. Is this true? AEI scholar Christina Hoff Sommers looks at the evidence. Watch more of the Factual Feminist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMw39...

Women are joining men as partners in running the world, but they are not replacing men and never will. Yes, women are flourishing in unprecedented ways. But men have hardly vanished from the scene. It is still men who are more likely to start businesses, file for patents, tell jokes, write editorials, conduct orchestras, and blow things up. Males succeed and fail more spectacularly than females: More males are Nobel laureates and CEOs. But more are also in maximum security prisons. Men commit most acts of wanton violence—but it usually takes other men to stop them. The male declinists seem to imagine a world of busy, consensus-building women, happily and competently interacting and managing the new economy. They point to the explosion of jobs in the caring, nurturing, and communicating professions: social workers, website designers, personal coaches, executive producers. Sorry to disturb this idyll, but you cannot sustain a network of nurturers and communicators without those hard-driven innovators, manufacturers, builders, and transporters—not to mention the military. And men still hold the lion's share of dangerous, dirty, and necessary jobs that few women seem to want. Men tend to be the truck drivers, builders, coal miners, and sewer workers. Are those jobs passé? We are told that toughness and assertiveness are obsolete. That is ridiculous—the world is as dangerous as ever. Think of China with all its millions of unattached young men, or those volatile patriarchal societies where radical Sharia law prevails. Our civilization still depends on the brave men who are willing to fight and die to protect us. Some brave and admirable women too, of course, but the warriors will mainly be men. Today women make up fifteen percent of active duty military personnel and very few of them want to be in combat—only about 7 percent of Army women, according to one survey. And consider science and technology. In fields like psychology, biology, and veterinary medicine, women are overtaking men. But those numbers don't hold in physics, computer science, and engineering, where men still prevail. In those fields, there's little sign of significant change. Several years ago, Hasbro Toys tested a furnished playhouse it was considering marketing to both boys and girls. But it soon became clear that that girls and boys did not interact with the structure in the same way. The girls dressed the dolls, kissed them, and played house; the boys catapulted the toy baby carriage from the roof. A Hasbro general manager came up with a brilliant explanation: Boys and girls are different. I would add that when they grow up, they complement one another. When parents take a child to a jungle gym, the mother typically says, "Be careful." The father, "Can you get to the top?" Today it's fashionable to claim that we no longer need the catapulters or the "can you get to the top" crowd. But we do. The cartoonist Nicole Hollander once asked, "Can you imagine a world without men?" Her answer, "There’d be no crime, and lots of happy fat women." Well, crime would certainly decline, and we'd probably put on a few pounds. But would we be happy? Not most of us. Women, alas, love men, and need them. Their fate is our fate—this is not a zero-sum competition. Men are not finished because neither men nor women will permit that to happen. Are Men Obsolete? #aei #news #politics #government #education #feminism #feminist
A Practical Guide to Healing Your Body, Mind, and Spirit: 7 Spiritual Laws of Yoga by Deepak Chopra
 
03:39:33
► Your FREE Gift: LAW OF ATTRACTION Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/loa-booster/ Free WEALTH Booster MP3 ► https://manifestmyowndestiny.com/wealth-booster/ A Practical Guide to Healing Your Body, Mind, and Spirit: 7 Spiritual Laws of Yoga by Deepak Chopra (Full Audiobook) The remarkable benefits of yoga, which include improved flexibility, balance, muscle tone, endurance, and vitality, only hint at the extraordinary power of this deeply spiritual practice. When adhered to and practiced mindfully, yoga can unlock readers’ full creative potential, their capacity for love and compassion, and ability to find success in all areas of their lives. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga brings spirituality back to yoga. It shows how the Seven Spiritual Laws play a crucial role in yoga’s path to enlightenment while providing readers with a wealth of meditation techniques, mantras, breathing exercises, and yoga poses. Whether a newcomer to yoga or an experienced practitioner, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga is a portal to yoga’s deeper spiritual dimension and a beautiful step to a happier, more harmonious, and more abundant life. The 7 Principles: Law of Pure Potentiality: Your essential nature is pure consciousness, the infinite source of everything that exists in the physical world. Since you are an inextricable part of the field of consciousness, you are also infinitely creative, unbounded, and eternal. Law of Giving and Receiving: Giving and receiving are different expressions of the same flow of energy in the universe. Since the universe is in constant and dynamic exchange, you need to both give and receive to keep abundance, love, and anything else you want circulating in your life. Law of Karma (Cause and Effect): Every action generates a force of energy that returns to you in kind. When you choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of your karma is happiness and success. Law of Least Effort: You can most easily fulfill your desires when your actions are motivated by love, and when you expend the least effort by offering no resistance. In this way, you tap into the infinite organizing power of the universe to do less and accomplish everything. Law of Intention and Desire: Inherent in every intention and desire are the mechanics for its fulfillment. When you become quiet and introduce your intentions into the field of pure potentiality, you harness the universe’s infinite organizing power, which can manifest your desires with effortless ease. Law of Detachment: At the spirit level, everything is always unfolding perfectly. You don’t have to struggle or force situations to go your way. Instead, you can intend for everything to work out as it should, take action, and then allow opportunities to spontaneously emerge. Law of Dharma: Everyone has a Dharma or purpose in life. By expressing your unique talents and using them to serve others, you will experience unlimited love, abundance, and true fulfillment in your life.

Canadian Landscape
 
43:00
Canada (French: [kanadɑ]) is a country located in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles), making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra. Consequently, its population is highly urbanized, with 82 percent of the 35.15 million people concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Canada's climate varies widely across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons. Various indigenous peoples have inhabited what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to European colonization. Beginning in the 16th century, the British and French established colonies, the first being the colony of Canada established by France in 1535. As a consequence of various armed conflicts, British North America gained and lost territory until, by the late 18th century, it controlled most of what comprises Canada today. On July 1, 1867, the colonies of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia were federated to form the semi-autonomous federal Dominion named Canada. This began an accretion of provinces and territories to the Dominion to the present ten provinces and three territories forming contemporary Canada. Canada achieved independence gradually beginning with responsible government in the 1830s and culminating with the patriation of the Constitution in 1982. In 1931, Canada achieved near-total independence from the United Kingdom with the Statute of Westminster, except for the power to amend its constitution. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II being the head of state. The country is officially bilingual at the federal level. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Its advanced economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. Canada is a developed country and has the fifteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the tenth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. Canada is a realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie, and part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G7 (formerly G8), the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

Abundant Energy
 
02:51
Human beings depend on energy. From burning wood to harnessing the atom, we have relied on the consumption of natural resources. As civilization grows and the demand for energy increases, we must ask ourselves how to best meet our energy needs while responsibly stewarding our resources. In Abundant Energy: The Fuel of Human Flourishing, Kenneth P. Green provides a brief history of our dependence on different sources of energy, explores the viability of both current and potential future sources, and offers a vision for the task of fueling human prosperity in the twenty-first century.

If you like Princes of the Yen support our future documentaries on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/independentdocumentary or Liberapay: https://liberapay.com/IndependentPOV “Princes of the Yen: Central Banks and the Transformation of the Economy” 『円の支配者』reveals how Japanese society was transformed to suit the agenda and desire of powerful interest groups, and how citizens were kept entirely in the dark about this. Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%. The film uncovers the real cause of this extraordinary period in recent Japanese history. Making extensive use of archival footage and TV appearances of Richard Werner from the time, the viewer is guided to a new understanding of what makes the world tick. And discovers that what happened in Japan almost 25 years ago is again repeating itself in Europe. To understand how, why and by whom, watch this film. “Princes of the Yen” is an unprecedented challenge to today’s dominant ideological belief system, and the control levers that underpin it. Piece by piece, reality is deconstructed to reveal the world as it is, not as those in power would like us to believe that it is. “Because only power that is hidden is power that endures.” A film by Michael Oswald You can follow Richard Werner (Author of the Book) on Twitter at @ProfessorWerner Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/independentdocumentary Watch our new documentary The Spider's Web: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np_ylvc8Zj8 Translate this film: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?ref=share&v=p5Ac7ap_MAY Help us spread the word: Rate this film on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4172710/ Rate it and comment on youtube.

So lets take a look at Ecology and Environment for IAS. Environment Introduction Ecology is the study of organisms, populations, and communities as they relate to one another and interact in the ecosystems they comprise. Key Points • In ecology, ecosystems are composed of organisms, the communities they comprise, and the non-living aspects of their environment. • The four main levels of study in ecology are the organism, population, community, and ecosystem. • Ecosystem processes are those that sustain and regulate the environment. • Ecological areas of study include topics ranging from the interactions and adaptations of organisms within an ecosystem to the abiotic processes that drive the development of those ecosystems. Key Terms • ecology: the branch of biology dealing with the relationships of organisms with their environment and with each other • ecosystem: a system formed by an ecological community and its environment that functions as a unit • ecophysiology: the study of the relationships between, and adaptation of, the physiology of an organism and its environment An Introduction to Ecology We hope that this ecology,environment,biodiversity lecture for UPSC, will be helpful to you. Ecology Ecology is the study of the interactions of living organisms with their environment. Within the discipline of ecology, researchers work at four specific levels, sometimes discretely and sometimes with overlap. These levels are organism, population, community, and ecosystem. In ecology, ecosystems are composed of dynamically-interacting parts, which include organisms, the communities they comprise, and the non-living (abiotic) components of their environment. The scope of ecology are : In essence, ecologists seek to explain: • life processes • interactions, interrelationships, behaviors, and adaptations of organisms • the movement of materials and energy through living communities • the successional development of ecosystems • the abundance and distribution of organisms and biodiversity in the context of the environment There are many practical applications of ecology in conservation biology, wetland management, natural resource management (agroecology, agriculture, forestry, agroforestry, fisheries), city planning (urban ecology), community health, economics, basic and applied science, and human social interaction (human ecology). Various branches of ecology are : Organismal Ecology and Population Ecology Organismal and population ecology study the adaptations that allow organisms to live in a habitat and organisms’ relationships to one another. Describe populations as studied in population ecology and organisms as studied in organismal ecology Organismal Ecology Researchers studying ecology at the organismal level are interested in the adaptations that enable individuals to live in specific habitats. These adaptations can be morphological (pertaining to the study of form or structure), physiological, and behavioral. Population Ecology A population is a group of interbreeding organisms that are members of the same species living in the same area at the same time. Organisms that are all members of the same species, a population, are called conspecifics. Community Ecology and Ecosystem Ecology Community ecology studies interactions between different species; abiotic and biotic factors affect these on an ecosystem level. Distinguish between community ecology and ecosystem ecology Community Ecology A biological community consists of the different species within an area, typically a three-dimensional space, and the interactions within and among these species. Ecologists also study interactions among various species; members of different species are called heterospecifics. Ecosystem Ecology Ecosystem ecology is an extension of organismal, population, and community ecology. The ecosystem is composed of all the biotic components (living things) in an area along with that area’s abiotic components (non-living things). Some of the abiotic components include air, water, and soil.

America's Climate Change Future – Session 4: Pushing against climate denial and defending science

America's Climate Change Future: Housing Markets, Stranded Assets, and Entrenched Interests Session 4: Pushing against climate denial and defending science Moderator: Mark Blyth (Brown University) Initial paper/presentation for discussion: “Evidence-based Solutions to Combat Scientific Misinformation,” by Justin Farrell, Robert Brulle and Kathryn McConnell (Yale University and Brown University) Panelists: Kert Davies (Climate Investigation Center) Timmons Roberts (Brown University) Kerry Ard (Ohio State University) The Rhodes Center for International Economics, the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, and the Office of the President are pleased to announce a one day conference on the economic and political consequences of climate change. The conference focuses on three key areas. First, the economics of rising sea levels for real coastal estate markets, which comprise a large portion of US housing market growth and hence personal wealth. The economics of ‘stranded carbon assets.’ That is, the raw materials and financial assets tied up in carbon release that have a high current value but whose values could decline precipitously in the future, especially if ambitious action is undertaken as scientific consensus suggests is needed. The third is the organized politics of climate denial: who are the agents and institutions behind scientific disinformation and how can such a politics best be countered? A lunchtime keynote speech will be given by Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Lunch will be provided for participants.

2017 Maps of Meaning 12: Final: The Divinity of the Individual
 
02:25:56
In this, the final Maps of Meaning lecture for 2017, I review the year and its offerings: What is a belief system? Why are people so inclined to engage in conflict to protect their belief systems? It's partly because our belief systems are not only systems of belief, but structures that serve to render everyone who participates in that belief and its dramatization and acting out in the world predictable, trustworthy and cooperative (even when competing). Is there a hierarchy of rank or value among belief systems, or are they merely arbitrary? What is the relationship between descriptions of the objective world and moral guidelines? How do you determine how to conduct yourself in the world? What should you do (and is that question even genuine -- or answerable?) What inbuilt structures do you bring into the world, as a consequence of biological evolution, that help you orient yourself in life, in the face of its overwhelming complexity? What is the relationship between the games that children learn to play when becoming socialized and the cultural structures that guide us in broader society? How is all this related to the underlying symbolic structures (religious structures) that sit at the base of our societies and belief structures?

Robert J. Shiller, "Narrative Economics": Director's Lecture, January 26, 2017
 
01:30:16
Robert J. Shiller’s Director's Lecture, “Narrative Economics,” addressed narrative psychology in economics and its relation to economic inequality. How society has dealt with inequality in the past is deeply reflective of the narratives that shape our observations of blame and incentivization, Shiller argued. If inequality gets worse as technology continues to replace common labor, society will need to draw on insights from psychology, sociology, and institutional economics to address the problem in a durable way.

"Is There a Baha'i Economic System?" | Hooshmand Badee
 
56:43
Web Talk #25 Economic ideas are intimately a product of their own time and place. Hence, economics is an important feature of all Faiths and the Bahá’í Faith is not excluded. There are more materials in the Bahá’í writings on economics than other major Faiths because Bahá’u’lláh appeared in a time of global economic integration. The exploration of the Bahá’í teachings on economics has occupied an important place in the Bahá’í scriptures, which will then have a vital effect on the Bahá’í community and the whole society. Statements such as “the economic solution is divine in nature”, and “readjustment of the economic standards of mankind” are mentioned in the Bahá’í writings. Also, the phrase “spiritual solution to economic problems” is repeatedly stated in the Bahá’í introductory books and pamphlets. However, for some readers, these phrases may not be clear and require further explanation. It is hoped that this presentation makes the concept clearer. Is there a proposition in the Bahá’í writings to establish a Bahá’í economic system?

Global Cities: Full Documentary
 
46:44
Cities have been for thousands of years the centers of civilization as they have watched empires, kingdoms, governments, and corporations come and go. But in the space of just a few decades our urban fabric is undergoing a radical transformation; today’s wave of mass urbanization is historically unprecedented in speed and scale. Today over 1 million people are added to the global urban population every week; in the space of a few decades, we are in the process of doubling our urban capacity, adding an extra 2 to 3 billion more people to our urban environment. This documentary explores this changing landscape and the development of urban networks as the emerging geography of connectivity in an age of globalization.

Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35
 
08:47
So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Beware, fellow plutocrats, the pitchforks are coming | Nick Hanauer

Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity ... and prevent a revolution.

Husain Haqqani is a former Pakistani Ambassador to the United States and the Hudson Institute’s director for South and Central Asia. His new book, "Reimagining Pakistan: Transforming a Dysfunctional Nuclear State," calls for Pakistan to redefine itself as entrepreneurial and intellectual, rather than dominated by its army and animosity toward India. With a major election looming, Haqqani discusses his vision for Pakistan with AEI's Sadanand Dhume.
