    Hi everyone. Welcome back to Weekly Words Holiday Edition. I am Jaehwi. The holiday for this video is Constitution Day. Let’s see what we have. 제헌절 (jeheonjeol) “Constitution Day.” So with that word, you can say 제헌절은 7월 17일입니다.

He couldn’t vote or even suggest new laws. Many saw it as a demotion and a few who did get elected wound up trying to resign only to find out that they were stuck there because nobody wanted to replace them . But now that the Articles…

    PS. In Theory: Universal Basic Income

    The threat that technological innovation will destroy more jobs than it creates has spurred a wide variety of proposals for ensuring that workers aren’t left out in the cold. One such proposal is universal basic income. The idea is simple: citizens or permanent residents receive a fixed sum of money, giving them the security and flexibility to participate in reskilling or higher education programs, to start their own businesses, to engage in less lucrative but socially valuable activities, or simply to spend less time working. As the so-called gig economy grows, and unions’ capacity to protect workers weakens, a UBI would be a powerful economic stabilizer. And, because it would…

    Could SpaceX’s Plans for Universal Internet Ruin Astronomy?

    SpaceX recently launched its first batch of 60 satellites into low-Earth orbit, getting us one step closer to global internet coverage. Dubbed Starlink, this program will eventually form a mega constellation of nearly 12,000 satellites hovering about 550km above Earth. But as the twinkling post-launch satellite train moved its way across the sky, astronomers across the globe watched and wondered—are these things always going to be so…bright? Many astronomers fear that Starlink will interfere with scientific observations. Starlink’s solar-powered, roughly 225kg satellites communicate with one another through optical and radio links, and connect with ground terminals that can operate from pretty much anywhere. These satellites are expected to dramatically improve…

    Haitian Revolutions: Crash Course World History #30

    Hi, I’m John Green. This is Crash Course World History. And apparently it’s Revolutions Month here at Crash Course, because today we are going to discuss the often-neglected Haitian Revolutions. The Haitian Revolutions are totally fascinating and they involve two of my very favorite things: 1. Ending slavery, and 2. Napoleon getting his feelings hurt. I can’t help myself, Napoleon. I like to see you suffer. [theme music] So, the French colony in Saint-Domingue began in the 17th century as a pirate outpost. And its original French inhabitants made their living selling leather and a kind of smoked beef called boucan. All that beef actually came from cattle left behind…

    The Black Legend, Native Americans, and Spaniards: Crash Course US History #1

    Hi I’m John Green, and this is Crash Course U.S. History! No, Stan. That’s not gonna work, actually. I mean, we’re talking about the 16th century today, when this was neither united nor states. By the way, this globe reflects the fact that I believe that Alaskan statehood is illegitimate! In fact, we’re going to call this whole show “U.S. History” but inevitably it is going to involve other parts of the world and also, not to brag, a small part of the moon. Sorry, we can be a little bit self-aggrandizing sometimes, here in America. So to begin U.S. history, we’re not going to talk about the United states…

    Age of Jackson: Crash Course US History #14

    Hi I’m John Green. This is Crash Course U.S. history and today, after last week’s bummer on slavery, we turn to a happier topic: the rise of democratization in the U.S. This was also known as the Age of Jackson, no Stan, not that Jackson. No, no, Stan, come’on seriously. No not, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. YES. That Jackson. Andrew Jackson. intro …Sorry, I just had to check my collar. Right, so you’ll recall that the initial democracy of the United States wasn’t terribly democratic—almost all voters were white male land owners. Mr. Green, Mr. Green. That’s just radically unfair. Exactly, Me from…

    What If the National Debt Were Your Debt?

    According to the White House Office of Management and Budget, the federal government collected $2.2 trillion in 2011. That includes revenue from all sources: income taxes, payroll taxes, corporate taxes, excise taxes, estate taxes, tariffs, and all other sorts of taxes and fees. Also in 2011, the federal government spent $3.8 trillion and was $14.6 trillion in debt. These numbers are too large to comprehend. Let’s put the federal government in perspective. The average American household earns about $50,000 a year. Now imagine if the federal government were the size of an average household. In 2011, this household-sized government would have spent almost $88,000, or $38,000 more than it earned.…
