1 day ago En
Explore the early days of the Ottoman Empire, as shrewd political rulers grew the principality into an intercontinental empire. -- In the late 13th century, Osman I established a small principality sandwiched between a crumbling Byzantine Empire and a weakened Sultanate of the Seljuk of Rum, in what is now Turkey. In just a few generations, this territory had outmaneuvered more powerful neighbors to become the vast Ottoman Empire. What enabled its rapid rise? Mostafa Minawi details the early days of the Ottomans. Lesson by Mostafa Minawi, directed by Kozmonot Animation Studio.

Who decides how long a second is? - John Kitching Who decides how long a second is? - John Kitching
3 days ago En
Discover how scientists developed atomic clocks, which use the vibrations of atoms to measure and maintain a globally consistent time. -- In 1967, researchers gathered to answer a long-running scientific question: just how long is a second? It might seem obvious at first. A second is the tick of a clock, the swing of a pendulum, the time it takes to count to one. But how precise are those measurements? And what is that length based on? John Kitching digs into how we scientifically define this fundamental unit of time. Lesson by John Kitching, directed by Tjoff Koong.

How do virus tests actually work? - Cella Wright How do virus tests actually work? - Cella Wright
8 months ago En
Dig into two testing techniques for viruses: PCR tests to diagnose an infection and immunoassays to detect antibodies. -- A new virus emerges and spreads like wildfire. In order to contain it, researchers must first collect data about who’s been infected. Two main viral testing techniques are critical: one tells you if you have the virus and the other shows if you’ve already had it. So, how exactly do these tests work? Cella Wright explores the science of PCR tests and immunoassays. Lesson by Cella Wright, directed by Hype CG.

Explore the science of why opioids are addictive and what can be done to reverse the growing rates of addiction and overdose. If you or someone you know is struggling with opioid use in the United States, the Department of Health and Human Services operates a helpline (800-662-4357) and has a database of treatment facilities: https://www.hhs.gov/opioids/ -- In the 1980s and 90s, pharmaceutical companies began to market opioid painkillers aggressively, while actively downplaying their addictive potential. The number of prescriptions skyrocketed, and so did cases of addiction, beginning a crisis that continues today. What makes opioids so addictive?

It’s impossible to prove your innocence. If you insist that you’re innocent anyway, you’ll likely be found guilty and executed. But if you confess, apologize, and implicate others, you’ll go free.
