Catastrophic earthquake scenarios have played out on the silver screen for decades, terrifying viewers with quakes that can collapse skyscrapers or topple entire cities. Here's what will happen if the big one hits the West Coast. On July 4, 2019, Ridgecrest, California, was hit with a 6.4 magnitude earthquake and then a 7.1 just one day later. But neither of these compare to the long-awaited big one, which scientists predict will eventually rattle the golden coast. But when it hits, what will that actually look like? Here's what experts say could happen in the seconds, hours, and days after the big one. While experts can't know exactly when a quake will occur, they have a pretty good idea of where. California is located in a hot zone of fault lines, the most notorious of them the San Andreas Fault. . . . .

Environmental science is the study of the relationship and impact between the Earth system and the human system. I remember when I visited Shanghai, I looked at the Bund and thought about it, wow. There are more than 7 billion people on our planet. That will put pressure on the earth. So understanding the impact of population on the planet is crucial. Therefore, in AP Environmental Science we will learn the relationship between natural systems and human systems. So we will start with the Earth itself, then we will talk about living systems, and finally we will talk about the population that makes up the human system. The rest of the course will focus on the interaction between the two worlds. So let's start with the use of land and water, then energy, and finally pollution and climate change. Ok, because this is a science . . . .

If you are anything like me, your night goes something like this. After an exhausting day you brush your teeth get into your Zelda themed pajamas snuggle up in bed, turn the lights off and then... ...nothing. No, not the good kind of nothing, the "literally 10 seconds ago I felt like I would die if I did not get into my bed and now I am perfectly awake" kind of nothing. So you try to squeeze your eyes tighter, or maybe I am just not in a comfortable position? Yeah, thatll solve it! But no. The clock ticks and you become increasingly more aware of every waking second of sleep time that you are losing and how increasingly bad tomorrow will be. If only you could have just slept at school or work. It was so easy then, but now in the solitude . . . .

The beginning of everything. The Big Bang. The idea that the universe was suddenly born and is not infinite. Up to the middle of the 20th century, most scientists thought of the universe as infinite and ageless. Until Einsteins theory of relativity gave us a better understanding of gravity, and Edwin Hubble discovered that galaxies are moving apart from one another in a way that fits previous predictions. In 1964, by accident, cosmic background radiation was discovered, a relic of the early universe, which, together with other observational evidence, made the Big Bang the accepted theory in science. Since then, improved technology like the Hubble telescope has given us a pretty good picture of the Big Bang and the structure of the cosmos. Recent observations even seem to suggest that the expansion of the universe is accelerating. But how did this Big Bang work? How can something . . . .

Today, I am going to show you this really cool metal called Gallium. It looks a bit like Mercury and it turns into a liquid at about 30 degrees centigrade. Thats about 85 Degrees Fahrenheit! (now that is warm) Its often used in the production of semi-conducters and in some LEDs (The More You Know) And when I got mine they came in a plastic test tube like this. (look at the video please) You can see, at room temperature is solid and it will not flow out at all... So, I am putting mine in a bowl of warm water to raise the temperature, After a few minutes, if you take it out you could see it is actually turned liquid. I am tipping this out straight onto my hands. Which ive read it is safe to do so. But if you tried this, you may want . . . .
