If you haven't noticed by now, there's quite a few questions which humanity has yet to explain fully. Science is just starting to understand quantum potentials in our universe, philosophers are blurring the lines of the world of physics as we know it, and Youtube is unexpectedly evolving into a platform which these discoveries are unveiled in an informative, and yet entertaining way.

Today most people do not get enough sleep. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has called insufficient sleep an epidemic. While we are finally paying attention to the importance of sleep, the need for dark is still mostly ignored.

Being exposed to regular patterns of light and dark regulates our circadian rhythm. Disruption of this rhythm may increase the risk of developing some health conditions including obesity, diabetes and breast cancer
Disney/Pixar’s newest film, Inside Out, tells the story of 11-year-old Riley and her difficulty dealing with a family move to San Francisco. The film is getting a lot of attention for its depiction of emotion and memory.
