2018 Move Mining Live Competition
 
01:29:48
The live #MoveMining competition was held on February 26, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the SME Annual Conference & Expo. The Move Mining competition is an international program designed to engage professionals, young professionals and students within the industry and outside the industry with the question, “How can I change the world’s perception of mining?” Presenting before a live audience and broadcast to thousands of viewers through SME Facebook live, these teams shared their ideas on how to change the public’s perception of mining. The Move Mining live event was made possible in part by sponsorship from PolyMet Mining. “Move Mining is an outstanding effort to push the needle on the perception of mining forward,” said Dave Kanagy, SME Executive Director. “After a second year, it is amazing to see the potential projects that could be worked on to improve the perception of mining.” The 2018-2019 Move Mining competition kicks off May 1, 2018. Professionals, young professionals and students from within the industry and outside the industry are encouraged to participate in this exciting competition. Learn more about this program and how you can participate at www.MoveMining.org. For students in grades K-12 the Move Mining NextGen competition is a similar competition.

Mine2me - Changing the Public's Perception of Mining
 
02:24
Mining takes place around the world and it’s a major source of revenue for many countries (~20% of Canada’s GDP). Many are unaware of what mining entails and only hear about tragedies or disasters on the news. Mine 2 Me aims to transform the publics perception of mining through engaging animated infographic videos. Some topics that will be covered are: what is your iPhone made of, how deep is the worlds deepest mine, and why do electric vehicles depend on mining?

Risk = Hazard + Outrage: Peter Sandman on Risk Communication
 
09:41
This clip is a brief excerpt (9:37) from a two-day seminar I gave in 2010 for the Rio Tinto mining company. The excerpt explains my signature formula, "Risk = Hazard + Outrage" -- which aims to capture the crucial truth that people focus more on how upsetting a risk is than on how dangerous it is. A much longer clip explaining the ramifications of this formula is available on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/18611416. I'm posting this excerpt on YouTube almost as an advertisement. I'd really rather people watched the longer version. Links to all my clips from this Rio Tinto training (as well as other audio and video resources) can be found on my website at http://www.psandman.com/media.htm. The Rio Tinto clips add up to a free online course on my approach to risk communication and especially to low-hazard high-outrage risk communication, which I call "outrage management." --Peter Sandman

Beth Karlin Ph.D. Thesis Defense
 
01:27:54
Beth Karlin Candidate for Ph.D. in Social Ecology Ph.D. Dissertation Defense Wednesday, April 23rd , 2014 Social Ecology I, Room 112 1:00 - 3:00 PM Residential Energy Feedback: Research, Technology, and Potential for the Informed Home Research Summary: Scientists and elected officials agree that climate change is an issue that can no longer be ignored and residential energy use is a prime target for reducing emissions, accounting for over 20% of annual emissions. One promising strategy for promoting conservation is the provision of feedback about energy use. Feedback -- the process of giving people information about their behavior to reinforce and/or change behavior--is receiving increasing attention due to changes in technology and infrastructure that allow information to be collected, processed, and sent back to consumers quickly and cheaply. Many programs and products have emerged in recent years, demonstrating political and technical potential for wide-scale provision of energy feedback. However, past work has been critiqued for its lack of theoretical rigor; many have called for more attention to the conditions under which theories are successful in explaining conservation. This research presents an interdisciplinary, mixed methods approach to understanding the role of feedback in residential energy conservation through five distinct, yet interrelated approaches: (1) literature review and integration into a new Eco-Feedback Intervention Theory (eFIT) (2) meta-analysis of past research on residential energy feedback, (3) taxonomy of energy feedback technology, (3) mixed-methods analysis of naturalistic energy feedback users, and (4) introduction and psychometric testing of a Usability Perception Scale (UPscale). As a whole, it seeks to extend what is known about energy feedback and to make suggestions for future research and practice. While there much research addressing whether feedback works, there has been little research into the more nuanced questions of how and for whom it works best. The present research aims to address this need. Biography: Beth founded and directs the Transformational Media Lab in the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs (CUSA), where she studies the psychology of leveraging new media and technology for social impact. Current projects investigate public acceptance of technology, documentary film, and digital activism. Beth has over a dozen publications in venues ranging from Peace Studies to Persuasive Technology and lectures regularly on Transformational Media and the Psychology of Sustainability. She is active in the American Psychological Association's Division 34 (Environmental Psychology), currently serving as Treasurer and Program Chair for the 2014 Convention. Beth holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Redlands and a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from California State University, Long Beach. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, she spent a decade working in K-12 education, holding positions as a teacher, counselor, curriculum consultant, and school administrator. After graduation, Beth will be staying at CUSA and working on the NSF-funded Flood RISE project, investigating the role of parcel-level flood modeling coupled with transformative communication strategies to improve flood resilience. The project aims to articulate a strategy for effectively translating climate science into actionable information to catalyze behavioral change.

Tesla Fact vs. Fiction: Why the Public Perception is WRONG
 
13:33
Almost everything commonly told about Tesla is wrong! He didn't invent AC, he didn't battle Edison over AC vs. DC, he didn't even have a rivalry with Edison, he didn't want to give everyone free electricity and he wasn't a Physics genius! Referencing primary sources I can show you why we have such a perverted view of Tesla's real accomplishments and life.

On U.S. public perception of Nuclear Power and addressing Global Warming in the near term
 
01:41
Addressing the public's understanding of nuclear power in the U.S. offers the most hope for addressing global warming in the near term. Since only nuclear power plants can cost effectively replace the steady power currently produced by coal burning power plants it is crucial that the U.S. begin replacing the 50% share of electric capacity currently provided by coal. Without gas, coal, or oil the French did this over 20 years ago. Today they have some of the cheapest electricity, cleanest air, and lowest CO2 emissions per capita in Europe. They also have high speed trains and energy security. Go Nuclear.

Outrage Causes Hazard Perception: Peter Sandman on Risk Communication
 
11:41
This clip is a brief excerpt (11:37) from a two-day seminar I gave in 2010 for the Rio Tinto mining company. The excerpt explains that it's a mistake to think people get upset about a risk because they think it's dangerous. It's much truer that people think a risk is dangerous because they're upset. In my terms, outrage causes hazard perception -- whether the issue is a public meeting about factory emissions or a quarrel with your spouse. A much longer clip explaining the relationships among hazard, outrage, and hazard perception is available on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/18611416. I'm posting this excerpt on YouTube almost as an advertisement. I'd really rather people watched the longer version. Links to all my clips from this Rio Tinto training (as well as other audio and video resources) can be found on my website at http://www.psandman.com/media.htm.

Sustainability Issues & Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia: Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage
 
05:25
Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage, from the School of Accounting, Finance and Economics at Edith Cowan University (ECU), presents her research "Key Contemporary Sustainability Issues and the Diversity of Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia" in ECU's 2012 Your Research In a Nutshell Competition. Dr Arachchilage's research focuses on sustainability development, which is a contemporary concept. She discusses research she undertook with ECU's School of Management. She discusses the popular definition for sustainable development, defined by the World Commission on Economic Development ~1987 as 'sustainable development is simply about meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of meeting the needs of future generations.' Dr Arachchilage sees sustainable development as an important issue as far as intra-generational equity is concerned and also as far as inter-generational equity is concerned. Dr Arachchilage's research looked at the 3 spheres identified as the key areas of sustainability development: environment, society and economy; supported by evidence in triple bottom line reporting (3BL) reporting and in GRI Initiative. Her study analysed 8 multinational companies who operate in Australia on the basis of 13 criteria across those 3 key spheres: - Environmental Performance: Biodiversity & Land Stewardship, Climate Change, Water Management - Social: Work & Community Safety, Stakeholder Engagement, HIV AIDS Reduction, Policies for Mine Lifecycle, Human Rights, Community Development - Economic: Supply Chain Management, Transparency & Accountability, External Performance Management, Sector Specific Global Initiatives For each criteria, Dr Arachchilage selected a number of indicators. As a result, her study examined about 67 indicators communicated in self reported sustainability reports, annual reports, media reports. Dr Arachchilage found that companies have selected different legitimation strategies in order to achieve social legitimacy and demonstrate they adhere to the social contract. While there were differences, there were 3 key legitimation strategies used by the multinational organisations she studied: - Disclosure of improvement - Alter public perception - Divert attention from issues and negative reports in the media For more information on Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage see http://www.ecu.edu.au/schools/accounting-finance-economics/staff/profiles/faculty-research-scholar/dr-nirosha-dilhani-kapu-arachchilage ECU's Your Research in a Nutshell Competition is open to "early career" researchers at ECU.

EXPERIENCE BASED CLASSIFICATION IN ROBOT PERCEPTION
 
02:11
We want a robot’s ability to detect objects (e.g., pedestrians, cars, etc.) in its specific operating environment to evolve and improve over time. Our Experience Based Classification framework for robot perception builds on the well established practice of performing hard negative mining when training an object detector. Rather than stopping mining for data once a detector is trained, we continuously seek to learn from the detector’s mistakes during operation. This learning process is entirely self-supervised, facilitated by the fact that we have additional scene context at our disposal in robotics.

The MASSIVE Tether Ticking Time BOMB
 
14:08
Tether is a cryptocurrency designed to be pegged to the USD in a 1-to-1 ratio. Doubts about whether or not this is true have been floating around for months now, but Tether mostly left the news cycle since the $30m hack back in November. However, it's back in full force now as their relationship with their auditor recently dissolved. Is this the end for Tether? Steemit Post: https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@cryptovestor/the-massive-tether-ticking-time-bomb Nobody knows, and the reality is that establishing a time-line of such an event is near impossible. However, what we do know is that Tether has been increasing the rate at which they print money. Most of the crypto community is cautious about it even if they use it, suggestings its public perception isn't the highest. They've have many issues with banking - What do you think the odds are that serious individuals and businesses have increasing demand for Tether which matches the rate at which they are being created? Even if Tether ISN'T a scam though, they have massive regulatory risk. The primary function of Tether is to bypass regulations and capital controls that exchanges face with using the real USD or other fiat currencies. As they grow larger and larger, Tether will paint a bigger and bigger target on their heads and eventually the US government or another government will likely take action against them. However, I still suspect Tether is a scam either way as it looks and behaves like one. When Tether retailiates against the accusations made against them by Bitfinexed, they sound like children rather than professionals (a characteristic I have seen as particularly common in the crypto space). The dissolvement of their relationship with their auditor suggests the auditor found details that Tether wasn't comfortable with revealing. If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. It is highly probable Tether is a scam and if it is well interconnected with Bitfinex as many suspect, then this poses a huge systemic and systematic risk to cryptocurrencies as a whole. Keep a close eye and be cautious.

What the Frack is in Pennsylvania's Drinking Water?
 
04:50
Hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as “fracking”, is a mining technique that injects pressurized liquid composed of sand and chemicals into the earth so that gas and oil can flow more freely, and thus, be of more profit to the energy industry. But despite its economic advantages, environmentalists claim that the fracking process contaminates groundwater by introducing salts and radioactive chemicals to the mix. As part of our collaboration with MSNBC, Vocativ went to Central Pennsylvania, which is adding fracking wells to their landscape at three times the national average. In an attempt to sway public perception of the industry, executives and politicians campaigning on behalf of hydraulic fracturing have gone so far as to drink fracking fluid in front of large crowds and members of the media. But at a recent fracking convention, Phil Grossweiler, an Energy Industry consultant, insisted that this is nothing but a publicity stunt. “The point of seeing executives and politicians drink fracking fluid was deception,” he tells us. “It was an attempt to convince the public that there is no hard from fracturing a shale oil well. It was deceptive in the sense that it’s the least of the problems. What goes down the well is not nearly as important as what comes up.” A third of the fluid that is used to free natural gas during the fracking process is returned to the surface as toxic waste. This fluid is referred to as “flowback water”, and it comes out of the wellheads laced with a considerable amount of radon gas. To measure the amount of radon gas present in water found in the proximity of fracking sites, Vocativ tested flowback from a stream near Trout Run, Penn., which is lined with upwards of 15 wellheads. “We are now 15 minutes into this test for radon,” Andrew Nelson, a scientist at the University Iowa, explains as he tested our flowback sample. “We can say that the amount of radon in this vial is thousands of times higher than the allowable standards for drinking water based on the EPA limits.” Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America, yet, there are no federal regulations limiting radon in flowback water. Still, locals in the Nation’s fracking capital are enjoying the economic perks. “Right over the hill is a nice guy who taught his whole life, hardworking guy…” Ronnie Rodarmel Jr., a landowner in Trout Run, Penn., tells us. “He has 200 acres. His kids are probably not going to have to worry about money.” And Cassidy, a waitress at Fry Bros. Turkey Ranch in Trout Run, is experiencing the financial benefits that the fracking industry brings first hand. “Sometimes we get, um, gas workers in here and they get very large to-go orders,“ she says. “They leave us really big tips, which we appreciate!” Fracking is expected to add $30 billion to the Pennsylvania economy over the next two decades.

Interview with Bjorn Stigson, former President WBCSD, at ThEC15 in Mumbai
 
18:08
More on Thorium at: http://www.thoriumenergyworld.com/ Watch Björn Stigson, Former President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, talk about sustainability, thorium energy’s potential role in the world’s future energy mix, and public perception of nuclear in an interview conducted during the Thorium Energy Conference in Mumbai. Mr. Stigson has worked with energy and sustainable development issues for more than 25 years. ‘I think the world is clearly facing a situation where we will have to move to a low carbon economy. That has to happen in the context where we know that over the next 25 years we will increase energy demand by some 40 percent. So how do we then create an energy system that is not destroying the climate? We need to look at low carbon energy sources, and nuclear is one such energy source. Traditional nuclear is met with quite a lot of scepticism from the public - thorium represents potentially one of the new nuclear technologies that could have a higher degree of acceptability.’ ‘The challenge is that actually nuclear has been pretty safe but it is perceived by people to be out of their control. Compare it with smoking. Smoking is more lethal than nuclear but you decide yourself.’ explains Mr. Stigson the problem with nuclear. ‘We are faced with a perception problem and people are nervous about the risks. This is a very difficult issue in many countries and it is not easy for the governments to push for nuclear.’ he continues. The question then is, who will deliver the trust that nuclear is ok? In his speech, Mr. Stigson talked about different roles in society. ‘Government and business don’t have much trust with the public. The natural suppliers of trust are civil societies. Academia has trust but they are normally not good communicators. If we want to have more nuclear, we need to find a partnership between governments, business, academia and the civil society.’ Government's’ role should be that of creating the regulatory framework. Mr. Stigson does not believe in state-run enterprises anywhere. ‘I don’t think you can build a broad program and rely on state-owned companies to be efficient. What we see in other parts of the world, is that the energy system is owned by private enterprises.’ Mr. Stigson sees the potential in thorium energy and believes thorium technology is close to a breakthrough, based on the presentations in Mumbai. Having the technology accepted by the public is another thing. ‘I think that thorium energy has a clear potential. One has to really think about how to market that. If you make it sound like traditional old nuclear energy, it’s not going to fly. One has to re-brand it into something else, otherwise people won’t buy it.’

Minecraft:Herobrine he is real

Herobrine is often portrayed by the community as a dead miner, killed long before the player's arrival. His appearance, however, does not suggest either of these are the case. But, with Minecraft's abandoned mineshafts and strongholds, as well as Mining being a large part of Minecraft, the gameplay of the game has shaped public perception of the character to suit this persona. Herobrine is very rarely seen holding a pickaxe. Usually, his hands are empty if you dont trust me so se self: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Herobrine

CM rules out auctioning mining leases
 
01:13
The nearly Rs 2,747 crores, that the Justice MB Shah Commission says, was earned by Goa's unscrupulous iron ore industry through illegal exports will "somehow" be recovered in the next six months, Chief minister Manohar Parrikar told the Goa legislative assembly late on Tuesday evening. Parrikar also said his government hopes to notify the mining policy, the Supreme Court has asked it to do, by September 15 and begin allotting mining leases afresh by October this year. Parrikar said, the government has also already started filing cases against illegal mining and three cases, one each against former minister Joaquim Alemao and Praful Hede, were booked. More cases will be filed in the near future Parrikar said and pegged the actual loss to the exchequer due to illegal mining at Rs 4,000 crore. A special discussion will be held in the House on August 18, so that MLAs can present their opinions which will be considered in the finalization of the policy, Parrikar said, hoping his government will be able to notify it by September 15. Parrikar also said a firm no to the demand for a public auction of leases, saying retention of workers, quantum of work already done will not be handled if new players are allowed. He also argued that it could pave the way for the entry of mafia.

How Would You Escape North Korea?  (The 7 Choices)

(THE 7 CHOICES) If you were living in North Korea right now - trying to survive on a diet of rats, grass, soil and tree bark, quenching your thirst by drinking out of mud puddles in the ground - what would you do? There's also the conceivable chance of being sent to a political prison camp for years on end just because you innocently thought out loud one day to a bunch of friends (North Korean propaganda is strong), where you are then beaten, tortured, and left so hungry that you are forced to dig and consume the grains out of faeces, or the maggots from dead bodies just so you have the energy to perhaps last one more day. You'd probably wanna escape. But how? The North Korean government in Pyongyang refuses to let its citizens leave, a clear violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, viewing North Korean defectors as traitorous criminals. Captured North Koreans would be subject to unimaginable torture and often public executions. If they are successful in their escape, then three to four generations of their family back home would be sent to North Korean prison camps to rot ....or worse. This is a strong deterrent. But this still doesn't stop desperate North Koreans from tempting fate. In this video, I'll go over the seven ways to escape the DPRK, including the most dangerous, the most unforgiving, the most unique, and the most unexpected. The North Korean border on the south side (ie. South Korean border / Korean DMZ) is the shortest distance to travel for safety and stability but as a result, the regime makes it dangerously hard. A North Korean escapee can be shot down by North Korean soldiers (border guards) or step on the many landmines in the area. The northern border to China has it's own set of challenges. Most North Korean refugees escape through this way, usually crossing the Tumen River border (like the famous North Korean defector Hyeonseo Lee). Once in China, the nightmare doesn't end there. There are also other, more unconventional ways you can try to escape such as through North Korean labor camps. Even if you make it to safety and resettle in a stable country, the North Korean regime will still try to hunt you down, so you're never truly safe. Especially if you're an outspoken critic or a threat to Kim Jong-un's power - just ask his half brother, Kim Jong-nam Available Subtitles so far: ENGLISH, FRENCH, CHINESE, GERMAN, RUSSIAN, DANISH, CROATIAN, FILIPINO, VIETNAMESE, MALAY, INDONESIAN & DUTCH (click 'CC') (Credit: Oxymiro, Silent Reecrete, Jenny, Fyodordmitriew, Jalapeguy, Vitaliy Cherkasov, Lobbo, ReecDraws, Catnip, Mr Hand, Atom Nous, Infinia) ★ Help us with subtitles in your language! http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?v=6A0ZOkMDLw0&ref=share MUSIC ► Ross Bugden: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKGLOK2FqmVgVwYferltKQ ► Brandon Maahs: brandonmaahs.com SOURCES https://web.archive.org/web/20070303203248/http://www.hrnk.org/refugeesReport06.pdf http://bushcenter.imgix.net/legacy/gwb_north_korea_executive_summary_r4.pdf https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/16/world/asia/north-korean-soldier-braves-dmz-to-defect-to-south.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/northkorea/11033003/North-Korean-pair-swim-across-sea-border-to-defect-to-South-Korea.html http://time.com/4205785/london-new-malden-north-korean-refugees/ TEAM KENTO BENTO Script, Narration & Editing by Kento Bento Artwork by Nina Bento ★★ Interested in working with us?

Global Initiative Webinar - Illicit Goods in the Supply Chain (Minerals)
 
02:07:28
In illegal mining, there is a high incidence of human trafficking for forced labour, including a system in which debt bondage is achieved by providing workers with advances or start-up capital. Workers in the mining sector are employed under extremely dangerous conditions, including exposure to toxic substances and severe illnesses, and that women and children tend to be more vulnerable to exploitation. The challenges of due diligence in for example, the gold trading process are faced at every point in the supply chain; from ensuring that gold has been extracted not only legally, but also complying with international human rights and labour standards and /or does not fuel armed conflicts, to retail buyers taking the sourcing of their gold into consideration. While the World Gold Council Conflict-Free Standard is designed to ensure gold producers mine responsibly, it is also very important that the whole supply chain is sustainable and does not contribute to conflict. For instance, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) – the international trade association that represents the market for gold and silver bullion – has developed Responsible Gold Guidance standards for refiners that lay out due-diligence processes that refiners need to follow, in line with the OECD Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected areas. What are the most promising practices to eradicate human trafficking from the supply chains within the mining industry, including gold and other minerals? How does labour exploitation in the mining industry relate to other forms of human trafficking and illicit trade? What laws specifically address human trafficking related to the mining industry and where can improvements be made to further create public policy? And how can academia assist in research around this critical industry? This webinar will focused on these questions and more in a two-hour discussion.
S-CAR Dissertation Defense: Joseph Obeng-Baah- Social Conflict in a Mining Project Community
 
01:36:44
Unearthing the Undercurrents of Social Conflict in a Multinational Mining Project Community in the Eastern Region of Ghana Dissertation Defense by Joseph Obeng-Baah April 11, 2018 Committee Dr. Susan F. Hirsch - Chair Dr. Agnieszka Paczynska - Member Dr. Franklin Dukes Abstract This dissertation research explores the intersection between the discursive resources that are employed by both multinational mining entities and the communities affected by their activities and the nurturing of the social conflicts that often characterize the lifecycle of mine projects even after compensation and other agreements have been negotiated and delivered. While the research on the phenomenon of mining conflicts has generally focused on the examination of the proximate and often tangible issues associated with mining activities such as the environmental, economic and social impacts on the affected communities, this dissertation explores how the discursive and interpretive meaning making practices around these impacts themselves shape conflict. Using an interdisciplinary analytical approach, the study explores how the discursive positioning and symbolic meaning making processes around these issues serve as critical drivers which, in significant ways, shape both the emergence and perpetuation of the conflict between a large multinational mining company and two communities affected by its activities in a major gold mining project in the West African country of Ghana. From the perspective of constructivist epistemology, the study specifically examines how the mine’s impact is discursively constructed and interpreted by the affected communities and the mining company through the processes of ascription, contestation, and renegotiation of rights and duties to self and others in their day-to-day talk and how these discursive interpretive practices, in turn, serve as drivers of conflict. http://scar.gmu.edu

Can Bitcoin Go to Zero?
 
12:40
Bitcoin has plenty of opinions on where it's going, whether it be to the moon or to zero. There's an article (https://cointelegraph.com/news/mythbusting-why-bitcoin-can-never-go-to-zero) that caught my eye on Cointelegraph that talked about why Bitcoin couldn't go to zero. In this video, we discuss the idea of Bitcoin's intrinsic value and some of the circular logic in terms of where it gets its value from. Steemit: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@cryptovestor/can-bitcoin-go-to-zero Part of what makes this question interesting (at least to me) is that traditionally when we talk about Bitcoin, we focus exclusively on market psychology and sentiment. However, this question is more fundamental in nature: Does Bitcoin have any intrinsic value? Theoretically if Bitcoin had no intrinsic value, it should trend to $0 over a long period of time. For the record, when I say $0, I mean "effective zero" as opposed to literal zero. There have been numerous attempts to find the intrinsic value of Bitcoin. Probably the most popular attempt was by Chris Burniske (and Ark Invest) by applying the equation of exchange. The issue I have with this method is I don't really view Bitcoin as a currency since it doesn't fit any of the traditional characteristics of a currency, so that makes it difficult to apply the equation of exchange. There are also many that argue the floor value of Bitcoin is based on the cost to produce a Bitcoin, similar to how we might do commodity analysis. Yet Bitcoin isn't used industrially the same way most commodities are and unlike gold (which also is rarely used industrially), it doesn't have the same length of history and psychology. If Bitcoin becomes unprofitable to mine, people will simply stop mining it and difficulty will reduce - it's not like physical commodities where you literally cannot reduce the cost of producing said commodity (without coming up with another way to extract the resource at least). However, Bitcoin isn't like a company that can go bankrupt either. This brings us to arguably one of the oddest aspects about Bitcoin: Its value comes from its ability to transfer value. That perception of value comes from the masses - So how stable can that be over the course of, say, half a century? It's tough to say and is part of what makes Bitcoin so difficult to evaluate. Another common argument for why Bitcoin can go to zero is that other altcoins will supplant it. Part of the issue with this argument is the fact that most of these altcoins haven't had to deal with the issue of real scale. Often any flaws in governance and security are exacerbated as a cryptocurrency (or really anything) scales, so I find it difficult to believe Bitcoin will be usurped easily for a long-time. In my opinion, there is a slim chance Bitcoin could go to zero in the long-term (it's not happening over the next 5 years - too much has been invested for it to fade quickly at this point). The highest chance of this happening is if the cryptocurrency space as whole trends towards zero, which goes into even bigger questions such as the value of public vs. private blockchains which is a bit beyond the scope of this video (although I briefly discuss my thoughts on that towards the end of this video). This is a deeper type of video (as you can tell) and I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you think about this in the long, long-term.

Public Lecture—Making Molecular Movies: 10,000,000,000,000 Frames per Second
 
01:06:00
Lecture Date: Tuesday, December 12, 2006. Movies have transformed our perception of the world. With slow motion photography, we can see a hummingbird flap its wings, and a bullet pierce an apple. The remarkably small and extremely fast molecular world that determines how your body functions cannot be captured with even the most sophisticated movie camera today. To see chemistry in real time requires a camera capable of seeing molecules that are one ten billionth of a foot with a frame rate of 10 trillion frames per second! SLAC has embarked on the construction of just such a camera. Please join me as I discuss how this molecular movie camera will work and how it will change our perception of the molecular world. Lecturer: Kelly Gaffney, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
