Transition words in reading and writing
 
05:37
Transition words help writers connect ideas between sentences and paragraphs. When you read, transitions help you understand not only the ideas themselves but also the relationship between them. EN ESPAÑOL Palabras de transición ayudan a escritores conectar ideas entre oraciones y párrafos. Cuando se lee, transiciones ayudan a comprender no sólo las ideas en sí mismas, sino también la relación entre ellas. EM PORTUGUÊS Palavras de transição ajudam o escritor a conectar ideias entre orações e parágrafos. Quando você lê, transições ajudam-no a compreender não só as ideias propriamente ditas, mas também a relação entre elas.

IELTS Reading | Top 07 Tips & Tricks | Part 01 | MRK IELTS
 
02:37
Top 07 Tips & Tricks | IELTS Reading: Part-01 | MRK IELTS Reading Tips & Tricks: 01. Think about the process of reading. Remember that there are different ways of reading. You skim articles in a newspaper when you are deciding whether you want to read them in detail later. When you skim, you just get a general idea about the content. If you are looking for something particular, for example the name of your team on the sports pages, you scan the text. You are trying to find a specific piece of information. 02. Reading for pleasure is an example of extensive reading. You don’t worry too much about every word. You get involved in the story in a novel, for instance, and are eager to find out what happens. In contrast, if you are reading a text intensively. You are focusing on the details and the exact meaning. You might need to do this with instructions for a new computer or a school or university textbook, for example. 03. When you do any reading, you need to make it an active process. Predict what the text is going to be about from the title or the pictures. After you have read a text, do something with the new information you have. 04. With every article from a newspaper or magazine you read, think about these questions: - Who is the article about? - Where and when is the article talking about? - What are the main points of the article? - What kind of people would find the article interesting to read? - What is your opinion of/reaction to the article? If someone you know has read the same article, talk about it with them. What do they think? Do you agree with them? ________________________________________ Get in touch with our blog: https://www.mrkielts.com ________________________________________ Enjoy & stay connected with us! ► Subscribe to MRK IELTS: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRqFVKBfllKuZArQrcNVqFA?sub_confirmation=1 ► Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mrkielts ► Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/mrkielts ► Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mrkielts ► Email us: [email protected] ► WhatsApp : +8801516720942 ________________________________________ Watch other Videos like this below: ► IELTS Reading | Top 07 Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/WyOplFuUwbM ________________________________________ ► IELTS Speaking | Top 09 Tips & Tricks | Part 01 https://youtu.be/2OKlaIBgEuY ► IELTS Speaking | Top 09 Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/bD8dDrn-5oE ________________________________________ ► IELTS Listening | Top 10 Tips & Tricks | Part 01 https://youtu.be/WKadUb_adgc ► IELTS Listening | Top 10 Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/ebdb_yH-WsM ________________________________________ ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | Part 01 https://youtu.be/L4nOWeF7rRU ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/k6QTP-UrfMs ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | Part 03 https://youtu.be/Ytk9VCUqnhU ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | Part 04 https://youtu.be/x3M3_qQGcc4 ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | Part 05 https://youtu.be/VECcMoOLyoY ________________________________________ ► IELTS Writing | Top 08 Tips & Tricks | Part 01 https://youtu.be/f_QI_TFQq-U ► IELTS Writing | Top 08 Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/f8ag7HqkMwY ________________________________________ ► Why are you taking IELTS? https://youtu.be/sk2oHNy7a_g ► IELTS Test Format https://youtu.be/NFKeQ0zXFt4 ________________________________________ ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | Part 01 https://youtu.be/39LDwW_XzWE ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | Part 02 https://youtu.be/WNrqBjluikA ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | Part 03 https://youtu.be/-mckKzRVLRw ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | Part 04 https://youtu.be/4c_YHJrMQQQ ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | Part 05 https://youtu.be/jqx3IZGoZBI ________________________________________ ► IELTS Speaking | Top 09 Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/hEnJhB2L4tw ► IELTS Reading | 14 Secret Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/waq2IAeirCY ► IELTS Listening | Top 10 Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/8yTxQ9r00ps ► IELTS Writing | Top 08 Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/eDXlnNV9tLU ► IELTS Reading | Top 07 Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/_r8x9O4Me88 ► IELTS Reading | Top 14 Tips & Tricks | All Parts https://youtu.be/tYw8cSkeGrE ________________________________________ ► IELTS Writing Task 1 | Describing Trends https://youtu.be/aTGJQ25v_00

The Importance of Sleep: 8 Scientific Health Benefits of Sleep + Sleeping Tips
 
04:59
To support our channel and level up your health, check out: Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science-of-fast-weight-loss-course Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health-happiness Today we’re going to talk about the importance of sleep and the 10 scientific health benefits of sleep. We’re also going to finish with some proven sleeping tips that will ensure you get a full night’s rest and make sure you get the right amount. 8 health benefits of sleep: 1. Not getting enough sleep is linked to fat 2. Getting the right amount of sleep improves your hormones 3. Good sleep Improves your immune system Another health benefit of sleep is helping you fight off being sick. In a recent study, people who sleep less than 7 hours a night are 3x more likely to develop a cold than those sleeping 8 hours or more. 4. Sleep Helps to Improve Learning In a Swiss University study two groups were introduced to a new language, one right before bed and one during the daytime. The one’s who slept immediately after leaning new material learned the language quicker than those learning in the day time. So studying before bed seems to be a good idea. 5. Sleep lowers the risk of developing depression In a study of twins researchers found that short sleep increased the genetic risk of developing depression. In fact, it has been estimated that 90% of patients with depression also suffer from some from of sleep apnea. 6. People who get more sleep naturally eat less When you don’t get enough sleep, the fluctuations of hormones cause greater cravings and worse appetite control. So if you’re someone who’s trying to lose weight but just can’t stay away from the late night snacks, getting more sleep is something that can probably help. 7. Sleep helps us empathize with others Another strange health benefit of sleep is a better understanding of social cues. One study found that those who are sleep deprived lose the ability to properly recognize expressions of anger and happiness in the faces of others. 8. Sleep improves athletic performance In a study of basketball players, a better night’s rest improved the players reaction times, speed, and, accuracy. In another study of over 2800 women, lack of sleep made them more sluggish and made it difficult to perform tasks that required coordination. Now that we’ve discussed the health benefits of sleep, lets talk about how to get a better nights rest. Here are 5 Sleeping Tips everyone needs to know Sleeping tip #1. Use Black out curtains and duct tape to black out your room Melatonin, also know as the sleep hormone, is raised when the sun goes down to indicate to our bodies that it’s time to rest. The problem is street lights, outlets, and all sorts of other unnatural lights confuse this hormone and trick it into thinking it’s still daytime. Do a complete blackout of your room and you will notice a BIG difference in both quality of sleep and ability to get to sleep. Also, computer screens and phone screens confuse melatonin as well. There are nighttime modes on these devices, but it’s always best to just not use them 1 hour before bedtime. Sleeping tip #2. Have A Routine Humans are habitual creatures and creating a systematic routine will improve sleep. Something as simple as brushing your teeth, reading a book for 15 minutes and immediately going to bed is a habit you can build to make your sleep almost automatic at night. Sleeping tip #3. Use Your Bed for Nothing but Sleep and the occasional… physical activity. Goes with the habit thing, but the moment you hit the bed you want the body to recognize that it’s time to fall asleep. So try not to work on your bed or spend anytime on it when you’re not resting. Sleeping tip #4. Use a pillow between or underneath your legs. This will help to maintain the alignment of your back and improve your posture over time. It will also help those of you suffering with lower back pain. There is not perfect way to sleep, but on your back is probably best as it helps to maintain the alignment of your neck and spine. Sleeping tip #5. Napping is great. A short 20-30 minute nap lowers cortisol levels and is very healthy for the body. So bring back a little bit of your childhood and do a quick cat nap if feeling tired mid day! Our last point is that the right amount of time for optimal sleep benefits is 7-9 hours per night. No less than 7 and no more than 9 is the perfect amount.

Finding Empirical Studies in psycINFO & psycARTICLES
 
04:27
This short tutorial focuses on how to search for empirical research in two EBSCOhost databases, pyschINFO & psycARTICLES. TRANSCRIPT: In this short tutorial, we’ll go over how to find empirical studies within PsycArticles and PsychInfo, two EBSCOhost databases. To access the Sullivan Library databases from Dominican College’s homepage, hover over Academics in and then click on The Sullivan Library. Next, choose Databases within the Find menu. Databases are online platforms that provide access to abstracts and full-text articles from scholarly journals, trade journals, magazines, and other publications, usually all of the same or similar discipline. To organize databases by discipline, click on All Subjects and scroll down to find Psychology & Sociology. From here, choose PsycArticles. To search both PsycArticles and PsycInfo at once, click on Choose Databases. EBSCO is a company that hosts a variety of different databases, and you’ll see that you have the option of searching many or all of them at the same time. For now, check off PsycInfo and click OK. To find empirical research studies, you must use the advanced search, NOT the basic search. Scroll down to find search filters. In the methodology section, choose Empirical Study. Empirical studies use observational techniques and quantitative measurements to conduct experiments and collect data. Also tick off Peer-Reviewed. Articles that have been published in peer-reviewed journals are typically high quality; this is because experts, such as scholars and practitioners in the field of psychology, have vetted and edited each article before publication and deemed it appropriate for that particular journal. You might also want to check off Linked Full Text. This will filter out search results where only the abstract is available to read, and not the article in its entirety. Leaving this un-checked is useful when you have time to request full-text articles through interlibrary loan Now let’s try a sample search. Let’s say you’re researching the effect of cognitive behavioral therapy on veterans with PTSD. On the advanced search page, it’s best to break up your key terms by using different fields separated by the search operator AND. In the first field, you would type “cognitive behavioral therapy” in quotation marks, to keep the phrase together. In the next field, veterans. And in the last, “posttraumatic stress disorder.” If you were searching on the basic search page, your search string would look like this. We have 24 results. Remember, these are records of peer-reviewed, full-text, empirical research articles—the filters you initially chose to search through. You’ll see on the left that there are more filters you can employ should you feel the need to. For example, if you only wanted to see articles published within the last five years, you could change the publication date. That cuts your search results in half. These records contain a lot of information, like article title, authors, journal title, volume, and issue, page numbers, and more. You can also read the article’s abstract, or comprehensive summary, by clicking this icon. The abstract can help you decide whether or not to read the full-text of the article. Click on an article title to find even more information and tools, and sometimes even the HTML full-text below. A link to the PDF full-text should be located in the upper left corner of the page. Opening the PDF allows you to download a copy from your browser to your computer, or to print the full-text. Alternatively, you could email the article to yourself to read later by using this email tool. Be sure to send the PDF attachment and to choose the APA citation. Always double check that database-generated citations are correctly formatted; they very often are not. If you've created an account with EBSCO, you can save the article to a folder to read at another time, as well. This is a good option if you'll be reading many different articles and would like to organize them into sub-folders. To create an account, click Sign In and then Create a New Account. If you have further questions or need any help at all, never hesitate to contact the Sullivan Library via email, phone, or chat. Or, stop by to see us in real life! Thanks for watching.

There is debate about how two suns form from a single condensed cloud of matter. Some believe that they both form at the same time; others believe they split following the creation of one huge sun. Sometimes both spheres are capable of fusion and both suns shine brightly, encircling each other around an imaginary point call the barycenter. Sometimes only one sun attains 13MJ and ignites, while its smaller companion, the brown dwarf, glows dimly and radiates heat. Astronomers usually can only see the brightest of the two, but because they both circle around a common barycenter, the wobble reveals the mass of the unseen companion. We are close to our Sun and within its gravitational influence. So as we are travel through space, it appears to us that the G1.9 is moving in an eclipse between our furthest planetoid, Pluto, and the edge of our Solar system, near the Oort Cloud. http://www.viewzone.com/browndwarf.html http://www.viewzone.com/nemesis.html http://www.viewzone.com/paper01.html Below is a direct link and source to the above video: http://www.wired.com/2016/05/can-livestream-mercury-crosses-sun/ http://live.slooh.com/ *second sun mentioned at the 3 hr 19 minute mark* link to the source and site with the upload is below: http://www.wired.com/2016/05/can-livestream-mercury-crosses-sun/ http://live.slooh.com/ For further reading on this topic please download the short PDF file provided in the dropbox link below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5dq7o2ggx3qb1ya/Signs.pdf?dl=0 In the Name of Allah the most Beneficent the most Merciful.

This is John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined. Today I am to going to give an overview of predatory publishing. Predatory publishing is when an author pays to publish an article and the publisher or the journal provides little or no services. Predatory publishing is most closely associated with open access. A reminder, open access has two factors. One where the material is free of any barriers to access which means its available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Also there are few or no limitations to its use such as a a copyright restriction. OA authors usually pay APC, or Author Processing Charge when their article is accepted for publication. This fee may be several hundred dollars all the way up $3,000 or even higher. This is where the predatory part comes in. As the industry started to migrate from the subscription model to the author pays model some outright illegal or unethical practices started to emerge. Typically, a journal would receive a scholarly article and have it peer reviewed. If the article met the journal’s quality standards and guidelines, then the journal might accept that article. Once accepted, it might be professionally edited and a format or layout applied to it. The author would see these changes and, once approved, the article would be published and posted online. A predatory journal might have a very high acceptance rate, perhaps 100%. The article might never have been peer reviewed. Also, a human may never have read the article or edited it. The original manuscript might be used instead of a typeset or formatted version. And the author might never have seen any of the changes or, in this case, the lack of them. Predatory journals are concentrating more on the money aspect of OA then on the quality or how the discipline is being furthered. So how do you spot a predatory publisher? Jeffrey Beall, a librarian at the University of Colorado, has been instrumental in identifying these journals and these publishers. A link to the list he created is listed at the end of this video. Here are some other ways to spot predatory publishers: Is the journal very aggressive in asking you to submit an article? Check with your colleagues about the reputation of the publication. Read some articles online and look at the quality yourself. Do you recognize colleagues or institutions that are familiar to you? How are the articles edited? Are they relatively error free? How about the website? Is it user-friendly? And finally, with the editorial board, are there people you recognize on there? If you continue to have doubts, feel free to reach out to one you may know, or know of, and ask their opinion of the publication and how often they review for the publication. At the end of the day, quality and peer review are key. More on that later. Well that’s it. Click on the link here to subscribe to my YouTube channel or to see more videos discussing predatory publishing. And leave a comment below or send me an email. Thank you very much and take care.

Or, more likely, a mysteriously un-degraded McDonald’s “hamburger” nestled in its original wrapping. But those thoughts must be particularly acute at this moment of world historical transition. Our dis-ease does not come from the vertigo we feel when peering over the economic precipice, or the transformation of the political landscape in recent years, or even the socio-cultural turmoil that has led us to the summer of rage. No, none of these worrying trends by themselves makes us dwell on the end of Pax Americana and the end of this era of civilization. It is the fact that all of these problems converge on one (phony) solution: war.

Grab Your Free 17-Point WordPress Pre-Launch PDF Checklist: http://vid.io/xqRL Download our exclusive 10-Point WP Hardening Checklist: http://bit.ly/10point-wordpress-hardening-checklist How To Get WordPress Posts To Page - Displaying Posts On A Page | WP Learning Lab This is one of those things that all beginners want to be able to do and it seems like it should be easy. Luckily, it actually is easy to do if you know how to do it :) There are two ways to make this happen. One is to set the blog page and the other is to add categories to the navigation menus which displays all the posts in the category. Let's do the first one first, setting the blog page to display posts on a specific page. First, you have to make sure that you create a page called Blog by going to Page then Add New. Type Blog into the title field and click on Publish. Now go to Settings then Reading Settings in the WordPress Admin area. At the top you will see a "Front page displays" section where you choose the "static page" option. Then for the Post Page drop down choose the Blog page you just created. You will also have to choose a Front Page to make this work. Then click Save Changes at the bottom of the page. Now your posts will appear on the "Blog" page you created a few earlier. Another easy option is to display posts on a category page. On all of the posts you create you have the option of setting a Category for the post. You can then go to Appearance, then Menus and add that specific category to any navigation menu you have on your site. When someone clicks on the category link in the nav they will be taken to that category page where it displays all the posts in that category. I hope this information helps you!

The History of Writing - Where the Story Begins - Extra History
 
07:09
How did the ancient civilization of Sumer first develop the concept of the written word? It all began with simple warehouse tallies in the temples, but as the scribes sought more simple ways to record information, those tallies gradually evolved from pictograms into cuneiform text which could be used to convey complex, abstract, or even lyrical ideas.

The temples which kept people together were not only religious places, but also warehouses which stored the community's collective wealth until it was needed to get through lean years. As the donations came in, scribes would count the items and draw pictures of them on clay tablets. The images quickly became abstract as the scribes needed to rush, and they also morphed to represent not just an image but the word itself - more specifically, the sound of the word, which meant that it could also be written to represent other words that sounded similar (homophones). Sumerian language often put words together to express new ideas, and the same concept applied to their writing. As people came to use this system more, the scribes began to write from left to right instead of top to bottom since they were less likely to mess up their clay tablets that way. Those who read the tablets didn't appreciate this change, so the scribes rotated the words 90 degrees allowing tablets to be rotated if the reader preferred - but this made the images even more abstract, until eventually the pictograms vanished entirely to be replaced by wedge-shaped stylus marks: cuneiform. Many of Sumer's neighbors adopted this invention and helped it spread throughout the region, though completely different writing systems developed independently in cultures situated in places like China and South America! ____________ ♪ Get the intro music here! http://bit.ly/1EQA5N7 *Music by Demetori: http://bit.ly/1AaJG4H ♪ Get the outro music here! http://bit.ly/23isQfx *Music by Sean and Dean Kiner: http://bit.ly/1WdBhnm

Popular vs Scholarly
 
04:02
Your most recent assignment reads, "No popular resources." No popular resources, only scholarly? What's the difference? Watch this short tutorial to find out! Transcript: Popular vs Scholarly Resources Mia’s research paper is due next week and her instructor said she has to use scholarly resources—no popular resources. No popular resources, only scholarly! What’s the difference? What’s the difference, you ask? Let’s find out-starting with popular resources! Popular resources inform and entertain the general public. They provide broad overviews of current events, politics, the economy, human interest stories, and culture. Popular materials share common characteristics, like 1. Everyday language, Popular materials contain everyday language, avoiding technical terms and academic jargon – the information is written by journalists not subject experts or academics. 2. Short articles--The articles tend to be short between 1-5 pages – 3. Flashy and glossy graphics. Popular materials use eye-catching media to grab your attention. 4. Anonymous writers. Sometimes articles in popular materials are published without the author’s name and affiliation. 5. No references, work cited pages, bibliographies, or footnotes. They lack the citations included in scholarly materials. Okay, now let’s find out what makes a scholarly resource scholarly. Scholarly resources report and analyze research to inform and to promote academic discussion within a certain discipline, for example nursing. These resources provide scholarly analysis of a topic and the author’s work must be evaluated by peers or subject experts before being published. Scholarly materials often share the following traits: 1) They typically list the authors’ names and the names of their affiliates. 2) They are written by researchers and scholars, who use the technical and specialized vocabulary of their fields, sometimes referred to as academic jargon. 3) Scholarly materials support ideas and opinions with research 4) They report experiments, studies, and literature reviews and are edited or evaluated by peers or subject experts before published 5) And lastly scholarly authors cite their sources, using, bibliographies, references, and work cited pages. Ok. Now let’s review what we’ve learned about popular and scholarly materials. Popular materials share these characteristics, like 1. Everyday language, Popular materials contain everyday language, avoiding technical terms and academic jargon – the information is written by journalists not subject experts or academics. 2. Short articles--The articles tend to be short between 1-5 pages – 3. Flashy and glossy graphics. Popular materials use eye-catching media to grab your attention. 4. Anonymous writers. Sometimes articles in popular materials are published without the author’s name and affiliation. 5. No references, work cited pages, bibliographies, or footnotes. They lack the citations included in scholarly materials. Scholarly materials however, Include technical terms and academic jargon Use research to support ideas and opinions Reviewed by peers or subject experts before publishing Scholarly articles list authors and affiliates Included Works Cited, Bibliography, and References So now that you know the difference between popular and scholarly materials, ask a librarian how to access these resources online.

English Grammar: The Prepositions ON, AT, IN, BY
 
12:31
English for Beginners: Prepositions are short words that help us express location, time, and other relationships between people and things. Some examples of prepositions are: on, at, in, and by. Do you know how to use them? For example, do we say, "I am on a taxi" or "in a taxi"? Do you like to travel "in a plane" or "by plane"? After watching this simple but useful lesson, you will know exactly which preposition to use in any situation. Test yourself with our quiz: http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-the-prepositions-on-at-in-by/ TRANSCRIPT I'm having a hard time reading on the train right now. Unh. Hold on. I'll start the lesson. Hi. James from engVid. Sorry, I was on the train. I want to teach you a lesson about four basic prepositions that we use in English that sometimes get confused, and I understand why, so I'll keep it basic. But because it's basic, it's going to be 80% correct. That's a good thing, that means you can go to the website and learn more from other lessons we have. But just know that sometimes there'll be exceptions, and I may not cover it here today. I'll even give you two exceptions to help you, but why waste time? Let's go to the board. Here's Mr. E. You'll notice he has a calendar, he has a clock, and: "You are here"? Oh, here. "Here" is a location. We're here right now, doing a lesson. That's the location: engVid. Let's go to the board and do the rest of the lesson, shall we? Here's: "at", "on", "in", and "by". "At". I love it because it's very specific, so you always know where you are, exactly. Problem: For transportation, "at" doesn't have anything. Hmm. So let's go to the next one. Let's go to "on". On. "On" is used for, let's say, large vehicles or large ways of travelling, such as buses... Sorry. Trains, buses, planes, and boats. I'll come back to boat in a second; it's an exception. On the train, on the bus, and on the plane, unless you're Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or me-I'm not in that list-you don't have your own train, plane, or bus, so you usually share it with a bunch of people or a few people. It's large. So we say: "You're on the bus", because it covers a big area, so there are many people sitting in that area. When I get to location, you'll see what I mean. Boat is a small exception. For many people in the world, they have their own boats because maybe they do fishing, or rowing, which is a type of boat that you go by yourself. In that situation, you can use "in". So, if the boat is small enough, say: "in": "I'm in a boat right now." But if it's a big boat, you have to say: "I'm on a boat." Another exception for the "on" rule is bicycle. You're always "on" a bicycle. I know, I said big vehicles, but remember: a bicycle is small, and it doesn't really have a motor or an engine, so we kind of give it its own thing, because you have to sit on the bicycle, and you can never really be in a bicycle. Is that good? Now, let's go to "in". "In" is funny because there are only two things for "in". "In" we use for car and taxi. The easy way to think about it is usually you own your own car; it doesn't belong to a group of people. People just don't get on your car every time you stop it, they go in and say: "Take me somewhere." And a taxi, well, when you're in a taxi, it is kind of your car. You pay the driver and you keep the car. So, this is one of those few cases where, because it belongs to me, I am in my car or I am in the taxi, because the taxi belongs to me as long as I pay the money. It's one of these funny exceptions. I don't know why, because you can put more people in a car, but I guess because you can actually own this transportation, it's yours. Think of it like the small boat. The small boat, one person is in it, you can be inside of it. All right? Cool. The last one we're going to do is "by". This is how you get there. So, "by" is different. When we talk about "in" and "on", you are... We are talking about how you are in the vehicle. Are you sitting on the bicycle? I can see you on it? You know, a boat is on water. But "by" just means: How did you get here? So, when someone responds to you with: "By car", "by plane", they're telling you how they got here. Not if they're in the plane, or on the plane. They are just... That's how they got there. So, how did I get here to do this video? Wouldn't you like to know. I'm kidding. I came here by car. So, yes, I was in my car and drove here, but I would tell somebody: "I got here by car, not by bus", and that would tell them the difference in the transportation I took. "How did you get here?" You like that? Good, so that's "by", this is how you did it; and the way you travelled is here, "in" and "on". Remember there is a small exception for small vehicles, so a small boat you can be in. Remember small. And a bicycle, you're always on the bicycle, because people see you sitting on it. We good? Excellent. Now, that is the lesson for transportation.
Welcome - A short presentation

Everything that happens in one person's life must be documented. We live in a world where communicating is really important and one of the most effective way to do it is with photos and videos. We could argue about wether it is better to read complex and long articles about someone's adventure or just watch a short but intense film that records every piece of his experience. Seeing what that person goes through is more powerful than just relate it on a journal or a travel website. This is basically the reason why I make videos. I want to share with people exactly what I do hoping that they will be just as curious as I am and they will make the same thing based on what I taught them. I sometimes use my camera to do so, but, as I said before, things just happen when you are not waiting for them and as a result I don't have my professional instruments most of the times and then my self phone becomes my best friend to shoot a video (that's the reason why the quality of the videos is not always the best). Anyway it is the most beautiful way to film something: do it as more lifelike as possible, with all the problems that a reporter could have while capturing reality, her reality.
