Video Transcriptions and Translations

effyeahnerdfighters:

effyeahnerdfighters:

Hey all. 

As you may know, YouTube gives channels the capability of uploading caption tracks to their videos, and these tracks are invaluable to all kinds of people. Captions allow deaf and hard of hearing YouTube users the ability to enjoy videos to the fullest extent; captions clarify words or phrases that might be difficult to understand when spoken aloud; captions enable users to find phrases or quotes via searches, and so on.

An impressive amount of vlogbrothers-related videos have already been transcribed, and I’m in the process of uploading those transcriptions as captions to the videos themselves. But there is a lot of work yet to be done.

If you’d like to help transcribe videos, go to the Nerdfighteria Wiki, find videos that have not yet been transcribed, pick one, and transcribe it! Instructions and formatting tips are available on the wiki, so poke around a bit!

If you’re feeling particularly awesome, you can focus on one of the following channels/categories, all of which need special help since they do not have scripts:

Similarly, if you are multilingual, we could use your talents in helping to translate videos for our educational channels.

See below for a full list of channels that are available for translation:

Crash Course

Crash Course is currently a special beta tester for Youtube’s new Captions/Translations feature. If you go to any Crash Course video and click on the “Transcript” button below the video, then open up the drop down language menu, you can select “add subtitles/cc”, a captions editor page will open, and you’ll easily be able to translate the video. When you’re finished, you can submit your work and it will be reviewed. If it’s accepted, you’ll be notified via YouTube, and the captions will go live on the video! See the screenshots below for an idea of how it works.

SciShow

Sexplanations

Instructions regarding the translation process for these channels are available on each individual site.

Thanks in advance for all the work, time, and effort that you all put into these captions & translations! It’s greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions (that can’t be answered by a perusal of the wiki/subtitl.us/YouTube), feel free to email me.

There are a lot of videos on the wiki that need transcribed right now!

Next Generation Spacesuit like Second Skin

Scientists from MIT have designed a next-generation spacesuit that acts practically as a second skin, and could revolutionize the way future astronauts travel into space. (Photo : Jose-Luis Olivares/MIT)
Astronauts are used to climbing into conventional bulky, gas-pressurized spacesuits, but this new design could allow them to travel in style. Soon they may don a lightweight, skintight and stretchy garment lined with tiny, muscle-like coils. Essentially the new suit acts like a giant piece of shrink-wrap, in which the coils contract and tighten when plugged into a power supply, thereby creating a “second skin.”
"With conventional spacesuits, you’re essentially in a balloon of gas that’s providing you with the necessary one-third of an atmosphere [of pressure,] to keep you alive in the vacuum of space," lead researcher Dava Newman, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics and engineering systems at MIT, said in astatement.
"We want to achieve that same pressurization, but through mechanical counterpressure - applying the pressure directly to the skin, thus avoiding the gas pressure altogether. We combine passive elastics with active materials. … Ultimately, the big advantage is mobility, and a very lightweight suit for planetary exploration."
Newman, who has worked for the past decade on a design for the next-generation spacesuit, describes the new garment in detail in the journal IEEE/ASME: Transactions on Mechatronics.
The MIT BioSuit’s coils, which are a main feature of the outfit, are made from a shape-memory alloy (SMA). At a certain temperature, the material can “remember” and spring back to its engineered shape after being bent or misshapen.
Skintight suits are not a novel idea, but in the past scientists have always struggled with the question: how do you get in and out of a suit that is so tight? That’s where the SMAs come in, allowing the suit to contract only when heated, and subsequently stretched back to a looser shape when cooled.
Though the lightweight suit may not seem at first like it can withstand the harsh environment that is outer space, Newman and his colleagues are sure that the BioSuit would not only give astronauts much more freedom during planetary exploration, but it would also fully support these space explorers.
Newman and his team are not only working on how to keep the suit tight for long periods of time, but also believe their design could be applied to other attires, such as athletic wear or military uniforms.
"An integrated suit is exciting to think about to enhance human performance," Newman added. "We’re trying to keep our astronauts alive, safe, and mobile, but these designs are not just for use in space."


Scuse you, Dava Newman is a FEMALE professor at MIT. 

(fyi, I passed out in a vacuum chamber wearing an earlier version of this suit. =D)

I eat less. And getting more dolls.

Image by BJDConfessions

Awww, look. Fat shaming, barely disguised as absolutely nonsensical advice. You’re not clever, nor cute.
*eyes pop out of head and roll into the sunset*

I don’t think it was meant as “fat shaming” but way to take it personally. They meant if they eat less then they have more money for dolls…. Which is also stupid. But still.

^ way to assume I “took it personally” *more eye rolling*
No.
But yes, yes it is fat shaming, this person can’t afford a new doll because they “eat less” … eating can cost like 5 bucks a day or even less. So what are they saving? Like a few cents, or a dollar??
So either they meant something else (such as, maybe they always eatat expensive restaurants, and they cut back… but then why not eat cheaply at home?), are massively ignorant about money (as already explained), or they are trying to target overweight people.

Actually at school I used to not eat lunch because the money I would save a week was $25 which for a high schooler with no other income was a lot! I combined that with Christmas gifts and birthday money and it made me able to get a doll!
I honestly don’t think this has anything to do with fat shaming. :/

As a fat person, I didn’t see this as fat-shaming. First of all, it’s obvious their first language isn’t English. Or maybe it is, but they are not so great at it. Secondly, all the message here is saying is “I eat less so I can afford more dolls”. Personally, I eat out a lot (out of necessity or laziness or both), but if I stopped doing that, I’d save a lot of money I could spend on dolls too.
This has nothing to do with someone being fat. And based on Natsukigirl’s vehement and angry reply, I would say that they took it pretty damn personally, or misinterpreted wrong on purpose. Who knows.
Please find something actually fat-shaming-relevant to get offended about, rather than jumping at every post that contains the words “eat” or “less” or something along those lines.

Sometimes when people get scared, they say and do terrible things. I think you got so scared that you forgot who you are.

Dragon wedding cake

Done my wedding wrong. Obviously.

I’d have that cake in a hermetically sealed glass case, and my guests would have a store bought thing from the local grocery.  NO ONE would touch that cake!

I’d get married just to have a cake like this.

Yes
