Human Population Through Time

It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion?

Intro to Music Theory Lesson 2: The Treble and Bass Clef

Kaitlyn and Isabella go over the differences between the treble and bass clef. Edited by Jessica Chriesman MYOCA was founded in 2007 to provide transformative experiences for youth musicians in socio-economically diverse music ensembles. Because so many children in the metro area have lost access to instrument instruction and thus can't participate in orchestra, the Scrollworks program was begun in 2008 to give all children the opportunity to learn an instrument. Scrollworks currently teaches free music lessons to over 120 students from the inner city, suburbs and rural communities on Saturdays at Highlands UMC. We provide music books and loan instruments.

The Brain Zoo - Basics of Meditation

Another lesser-known member of the brain zoo is Procrastination Salmon. He rarely makes an appearance. Twitter ► New book ► Discuss passive-aggressively ► There is absolutely no reason to associate meditation with religion these days, not if you’re atheist or agnostic. It’s totally possible to be secular and still consider it just as valuable. Which it is. There’s also no reason to associate it with claims about superpowers, enlightenment, seeing other dimensions, or suddenly being able to do triple backflips with a jam sandwich on your head. The last one would be cool though. As mentioned in the video,...

Understanding Different Genres of Music - Introduction

Hello Everyone and welcome to my first video of 2016! If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times: folks tend to label music "jazz" simply because it has a slow tempo or because the singer has a "classy" image. Well, I felt inspired to make a series of videos to help clear up some of these mistaken notions, beginning with this one, which I recorded on Martin Luther King's holiday, January 18, 2016. I am also starting off 2016 with my first ever give away! I am giving away a bottle of Paul Mitchell Original "The Detangler"....

How Basic Chords Work - Music Theory Lesson 1

UPDATE: Hello, this is Present Day Michael. I would like to point out that Past Michael chose his words poorly when he said "this chord doesn't work", and that statement has led to much anger and confusion throughout the eons (well since 2011 anyway). What he SHOULD have said was "by moving notes closer together than a minor third or farther apart than a major third, you're creating an entirely new chord that you're almost definitely not expecting, and you should watch this video to understand the crazy nonsense that's happening here." The great thing about improvised YouTube videos...
