The 8th Continent Has Been Finally Discovered

Would you have ever thought that there could be such a huge one as a hidden continent? For decades, people thought they knew all about the tectonic structure of our planet. I mean, we’ve been taught since kindergarten that there are exactly 7 continents, right? The oceans might be mostly unexplored, but we’re confident that we’ve seen everything the Earth has to offer in terms of landmass. However, geologists have recently rocked this world with an astonishing discovery: they claim that they found the 8th continent.

- Zealandia. That’s the name of a piece of sunken continental crust off the coast of Australia that was first coined in 1995 by Bruce Luyendyk, a geophysicist at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
- The scientists who took part in the research gathered information from the last 10 years and found that this huge underwater plateau was, in fact, a sunken continent!
- New Zealand and New Caledonia have actually been a part of this huge rock this whole time. They’re not islands, as we previously thought, but simply peaks jutting out of an unbroken continental plateau.
- The continent of Zealandia separated from Australia about 60 to 85 million years ago. Like all the modern continents we know and love, they both had been part of the supercontinent called Gondwana.
- One of the most important signs of a continent is its elevation above the ocean floor.
- There have been dozens of sea expeditions in the past 20 years that managed to take samples of the crust, and they all came to a single conclusion: the rocks they found were those of a continental nature, not an oceanic one!
- Oceanic floor is typically 4.4 miles thick, while continental crust is a lot girthier than that. Zealandia’s thickness ranges from 6.2 to 18.6 miles.
- Continents have very clearly defined natural edges. That’s why, for example, despite its enormous size, Greenland is regarded as part of North America, not a continent of its own.
- A continent that can be so submerged yet remain intact after all this time is a real find for geologists all over the world.

Random YouTube Video Generator

 This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.

 The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

 Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.

 So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.

 YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.

 YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

 YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
