Why Japanese Live So Long ★ ONLY in JAPAN

So you want to live to be 100? The answers to living a long and happy life may come from Japan which has the longest average life expectancy in the world (83.84 years) and where 2 million people are over the age of 90. Believe it or not, 6 of the top 10 oldest people alive are from Japan including Nabi Tajima of Kagoshima who is 117 years old and the last human alive born in the 19th century! How did so many Japanese get to live so long? What are some of the things Japanese do right? In this episode, John travels to Tottori Prefecture to the area around Mt Daisen where his friend Tomiko-san gives him some advice about how to live a long life and how she's lived to be 106 years old and still working on the farm! Her secret? Tofu. She started to make tofu in the 1950s when doctors said residents had to reduce high blood pressure. She made her own tofu for her family and her diet combined with good habits including staying busy and working hard have strengthened her mind and body. She still walks and writes tanka poetry. I also ask Mr. Seiichi, my 97 year old Japanese neighbor his secret and hear from a Shinto priest about his thoughts and personal experiences with living a very long and happy life in Japan. It's impossible to say exactly what has led to Japan having the longest average life expectancy in the world but these things may help: ★ Green Tea ★ Less fatty foods ★ Seafood ★ Fermented foods ★ Bath culture / Hot Springs & Onsen ★ Smaller portions ★ Education on personal responsibility ★ National safety / low crime rates ★ Respect for the Elderly (It's a national holiday too!) ★ DNA Special thank you to Daisen Town & Yonago City in Tottori Prefecture for the help. Daisen is celebrating its 1300th anniversary this year and you're invited to the party in June 2018! http://www.daisen1300.org/ Music credits: Always thankful for TeknoAXE (Matthew Huffaker) Songs: Granny Jenkins / Harassing the Mailman http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtgf00GvfFQVsYBA7V7RwUw The video was produced and created by John Daub.

8 Places You Should Never Swim In (Even If You Want To)

There are lots of amazing outdoor swimming areas in the world. Some of them are safe and protected with lifeguards watching over you while you swim, bathe, dive off rocks, and play in the water. But some beaches are not just unsafe — they’re outright dangerous! Here are 8 places where you should never attempt a swim if you treasure your health and life. TIMESTAMPS: Blue Holes 1:03 Colorful Pools 2:15 Laguna Caliente 4:18 Nyiragongo Crater's Lava Lake 5:16 Pink Lake 6:19 New Smyrna Beach 8:12 Frying Pan Lake 9:22 Eagle's Nest Sinkhole 10:22 Music: http://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - Most blue holes are open to the public. However, some of the biggest ones have acquired a really bad reputation among divers. - It's hard to believe that nature created something as colorful as the thermal pools located in Yellowstone National Park. They look like something from another world: bright, beautiful...and deadly. - Laguna Caliente is located in Costa Rica and differs dramatically from its sibling, Botos Lake. These 2 bodies of water are crater lakes of the Poas Volcano. - Mount Nyiragongo, which is situated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is an active volcano. Its last eruption took place in 2002. In its crater, there's a lake. But it’s not your typical lake. - Lake Hillier in Western Australia is indeed as pink as it looks. This is a shallow salt lake that’s beautifully edged with white salt formations and surrounded by eucalyptus forests. - New Smyrna Beach has been called the “Shark Capital of the World” by the International Shark Attack File. In 2008, almost 40% of all shark attacks on the planet happened in this region. - If you look at the photo of Frying Pan Lake in New Zealand, you might think that there's fog hanging low over the water. Similar fog (or, more precisely, steam) forms over warm water on a cold morning. - Eagle's Nest Sinkhole is a body of water in Florida that looks like an ordinary pond. It’s only when you get into the water that it gets dangerous. Beneath the lake, there's a huge system of underwater caves with rooms and passages that spread for miles.

Top 10 True Stories You Won’t Believe Behind Famous Logos

Famous brands need clever, sophisticated logos. Some are very simple and effective. Others are smarter, with hidden messages buried inside them. Some have even been around for hundreds of years. But have you thought about how these logos came to be? Subscribe for more! ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedSubscribe ◄ Stay updated ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedFacebook http://twitter.com/BeAmazedVideos http://instagram.com/BeAmazedVideos ◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: [email protected] Credit: http://pastebin.com/JJ4wigut Be Amazed at these top 10 true stories you won't believe about famous logos. The MGM Lion - The movie maker Metro Goldwyn Mayer is one of the world’s favourite corporate logos. Firstly because it tells you the adverts have finished and the movie is finally starting. Secondly, because it has a massive roaring lion in it. The Captain Morgan pirate - The Captain Morgan pirate is one of the best-known corporate mascots in the world. His likeness has graced bottles of rum since the 50s, and inspired this NFL celebration, landing the Captain in hot water. Chupa Chups - Hands up who likes Chupa Chups! Of course, we all do. They’re a worldwide sensation. The gold standard in lollipops since 1958. This sweet on a stick was invented by Spanish candyman Enric Bernat, but they were not as immediately popular as you might think. Android - Officially, the little green man who greets you when you open your Android device doesn’t have a name. Some of the team at Google call him Bugdroid , as he’s always chasing down bugs. Those crazy computer guys! McDonalds - There are many myths and legends associated with the McDonalds Golden Arches, one of the most recognisable logos in the world. Is it inspired by the letter M? Apple - If you’re not watching this video on a little green Bugdroid device, you’re probably watching it on an Apple screen. That famous logo, the apple with a bite taken out of it, is simple, effective, as familiar as your own face. But what you may not know, is that it’s not the original Apple logo. The Bacardi bats - Back to rum, and the most famous rum brand in the world, Bacardi. If you’ve ever wondered why Bacardi bottles are adorned with bats, our story begins in 1862, in Cuba. Jagermeister - Staying with the hard stuff, it’s the favourite green tipple of apres-skiers everywhere, Jagermeister. On every Jagermeister bottle, you’ll see a crucifix and a stag’s head, and you may be asking yourself, what’s that got to do with Jagerbombs? Well, it starts in 727 AD with a hunter named Hubert. Nike - These days graphic designers spend weeks creating a logo. They spend their ‘blue-sky thinking’ and testing their ideas on focus groups. Walt Disney’s signature - When people ask you for your signature, it’s because your signature is yours and yours alone, that’s how they know it’s you. When people asked Walt Disney for his signature, they were invariably confused.

15 Things You Didn't Know The Purpose Of!

Top things you didn’t know the purpose of! These are the everyday items and things you didn’t know the use for! #14. “Pen Cap”-- You have definitely noticed the tiny hole in the top of a cap and may have used it to try and make a whistle or pretended it was a tiny spyglass. Most people believe this hole has something to do with preventing a pen from drying-out but this is not the case. The hole in the pen cap actually serves as a safety feature. In the event that a small child swallows one, the hole allows air to pass through and reduces the risk of suffocation. #13. “Measuring Tape Tools”-- The modern measuring tape machine is a handy invention that most construction workers and contractors can’t live without, but even some of the most skilled workers might not know it has two incredible yet simple features. First there is the serrated edge on the metal end of the tape. This was put into the design so that if you desired you could put a minor scratch or indentation into the surface you are measuring, in order to give you a marker to make further measurements or designs off of. The other feature is right next to the serrated edge. You may have noticed the small hole that is commonly located in the metal tip. So what’s the purpose of this? Well this is so that if you are measuring something from a point where a nail or screw is you can hook the tape onto the nail and hold the tape in place. #12. “The Quarter’s Edge”-- You probably have spied the hundreds of tiny grooves that mark the outside edge of a quarter but not thought twice about it having a purpose. But these tiny ridges actually once served an important function and no it’s not just so magician’s can get a better grip during coin tricks. Up until recently, historically speaking, the cost of the metals in a coin reflected the coins value so many people took to shaving the edges off of the coins and then used the rest of the coin to purchase items as if the coin still had full value. They would then save up their shavings and melted them together to create new coins or just sell the chunks. In order to combat this, coin minters started putting these ridges on their coins so that retailers could tell whether the coins had been shaved. This practice, though not necessary today, is carried on for the sake of tradition and aesthetic. So why don’t nickels have them? Because no one cares about nickels.
