Interesting videos/documents

So here is a little list of videos/documents from you tube that I have watched and would recommend. I decided to do this after people here - and also my lovely irl friends - have asked from me to send links to some interesting videos to watch. I can make later true crime post similar to this one.

Children of Darkness - This document is about mentally ill children and young adults. It shows how mental health care worked in America in 1983. I find this document really heart breaking but it really shows a different side of mental health care. 

Bulgaria’s Abandoned Children  - Here is another document that was really hard for me to watch because It made me feel so sad. It tells about facility where is lot of unwanted children. The living conditions are bad, children are suffering because they cant get help, there is not enough food, some of the kids cant even speak because they have never taught to. There is also not enough staff to take good care of the kids why everything seems quite chaotic. Again, really interesting but heart breaking document.

Abigail & Brittany Hensel - The Twins Who Share a Body  - Interesting document about conjoined twins. It is amazing how well Brittany and Abigail cooperate together!!

DOCS: Superhuman - World’s Tallest Children  - Like the caption says, a document about really tall children. I find it quite interesting.

Here some videos about Deep Web : X, X, X, X, X, X (quite many is from  Deep Web Exploration)

15 Scariest YouTube Videos   - Some are not that creepy but there is few that really freaks me out. 

10 Scariest Diseases in the World - I guess caption says it all. 

Child of Rage - Document about Beth Thomas who is suffering from Reactive Attachment Disorder (as a result of being sexually abused as a child). 

Genie (Secret of the Wild Child) -  A feral child who was a victim of severe abuse, neglect, and social isolation. Again a sad story but really interesting document.

Torture Methods in History - I have watched a lot of these but I just add this torture video because in most there is just same torture methods as in this video (: 

Psychology (these small clips are so good if you are studying psychology!) - X

The infamous petition addressed to Emperor Nicholas II by some of his relatives, on behalf of Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich after he had been banished into exile for taking part in murder of Grigory Rasputin.

“Your Imperial Majesty. We all whose signatures You will read at the close of this letter, fervently and strongly implore You to mitigate Your severe decision concerning the destiny of Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich. - We know that he is physically sick and morally. You, - his former Trustee and Supreme Guardian, know his heart has always been filled with so much fervent love for You, Your Majesty, and for our Motherland. We entreat Your Imperial Majesty, in view of the young age and really poor health of the Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich to allow him to stay in Usov or Ilyinskoye. Your Imperial Majesty must be aware of how hard are the conditions for our troops in Persia, because of lack of living quarters, epidemics and other scourges of the human race, should Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich be obliged to stay there, it would mean his complete ruin and in the heart of Your Imperial Majesty, thre must emerge some pity for the youth whom You have loved, who since childhood has been happy to be much and often near You and to whom You have been as kind as a father. May the Lord Exhort Your Imperial Majesty to change your decision and temper justice with mercy. Fervently faithful to and fondly loving Your Imperial Majesty Olga (Konstantinovna), Maria (Pavlovna the Elder), Kyril (Vladimirovich), Victoria (Fyodorovna), Georgiy (Mikhailovich), Andrei (Vladimirovich), Pavel (Alexandrovich), Maria (Pavlovna the Younger), Elizaveta Mavrikievna, Ioann (Konstantinovich), Elena (Petrovna), Gavril (Konstantinovich), Konstantin (Konstantinovich), Igor (Konstantinovich), Nicholas Mikhailovich, Sergei Mikhailovich.”

In reply Nicholas returned the letter, writing on top of it:

“Nobody has got the right to commit an assassination. I know that many are conscience.stricken, for not only Dmitri Pavlovich is implicated in the crime. Your application surprises me. Nicholas.”


Hot Rock, Lost Rock, Router”:

This past summer, Aram Bartholl installed a project called Keepalive in the woods of Neuenkirchen, Germany. Keepalive was a hollow boulder that contained “a thermoelectric generator which converts heat directly into electricity.”

Visitors are invited to make a fire next to the boulder to power up the wifi router in the stone which then reveals a large collection of PDF survival guides. The router which is NOT connected to the Internet offers the users [an opportunity] to download the guides and upload any content they like to the stone database. As long as the fire produces enough heat the router will stay switched on.


Finally, a small campfire was started—and, lo and behold, the secret documents made their electromagnetic way to a nearby iPhone, as if conjured into digital existence through the most primitive means of a campfire.

It’s a kind of library in waiting.

It shouldn’t need to be said, but the Confederacy didn’t stand for opposing federal overreach or eliminating handouts to big business—it stood for slavery.

The city of Geneva has decided to provide key administrative documents and public information in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Albanian and Arabic to help new residents integrate. Previously, many of these documents had been available only in French.  The authorities announced the move on Tuesday, explaining that every year Geneva welcomes more than 20,000 new residents, many of whom do not speak French.  “The city of Geneva experiences major migration movements,” Geneva mayor Esther Alder told the Tribune de Genève on Wednesday. “Around 50% of residents are of foreign origin and 10% of the population is renewed every year.”  The city itself has 200,860 inhabitants, while the canton has 482,545, according to 2015 figures.

The Sixth Pan African Congress Collection, stored at the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center at Howard University, provides a very unique insight into the planning and organizing of the North American delegation to the Congress. The Sixth Pan African Congress (Sixth PAC) was held in Tanzania in 1974, led by President Julius Nyerere. The Sixth PAC was, as the name suggests, the sixth meeting of African people from around the globe in an attempt to organize a united Pan-African agenda for African liberation. Though the majority of this collection deals with the logistical aspects of organizing various delegates from around North America, the Sixth PAC Collection also contains numerous position papers and statements that were presented at the conference. These papers contain statements regarding Palestinian liberation, the struggle for freedom in South Africa as well as the attempt to use science and technology for the benefit of African liberation. Delegations from Cuba, the U.K., Guyana, Somali and various other nations presented very important position papers at this conference and this collection provides a brief glimpse into this historic event.
