Three Kingdoms of China

Chinese history is not very well known in the west. And since China have a lot of history, spanning back thousands of years it is a lot to take in.

A great place to start is OverSimplified's version of the history of the Three Kingdoms.

Kings and Generals also have film about the same period

...and Extra History cover the same period

A famous battle: Battle of Red Cliffs, that took place has been made into two movies. The historical accuracy of the movie was not important when making it. But they are very entertaining.

Learn different programming languages ​​and web development with these free services

Today, programming and web development is very hot. But it is also a lot to learn. One way to learn and practice is with various interactive online services. Some of I have tested are as follows

Sololearn: Learn or repeat in quizform languages ​​HTML, CSS, JavaScript, C #, C ++, Python, Swift, Ruby, JQuery and SQL. Can be done with the mobile

Codecademy: A bit more informative than Sololearn but difficult to use with the mobile. Some parts cost. Language: HTML & CSS, Python, JavaScript, Java, SQL, Bash / Shell, Ruby, C ++

Freecodecamp: Fully focused on Front-end of web development. Languages: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The big advantage is that everything is free and will continue to be free.

Please write a comment about tips on similar services

Don't miss TIMELAPSE OF THE FUTURE: A Journey to the End of Time by Melodysheep

Melodysheep or John D. Boswell, who has made amazing films merging clips from science documentaries with self-produced music, has now released a 30-minute film about the future of the universe. The time goes exponentially in the film and various astronomers and physicists who participated in documentaries comment on various elements in films. Incredibly well-made and interesting. The film is better than most documentaries in the field.

2014 I wrote a blog post "Interstellar - How much do you want to pay for humanity's survival?". There I write that some speculate that it is actually possible to survive the death of the universe.


Melodysheep writes about his movie like this:

We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few. 
This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found. 
To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

Voices in the film: David Attenborough, Craig Childs, Brian Cox, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michelle Thaller, Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Mike Rowe, Phil Plait, Janna Levin, Stephen Hawking, Sean Carroll, Alex Filippenko och Martin Rees

The European royal house, visualized right back to the 7th century

Do you think the Game of Thrones is complicated? Wait until you see the royal houses in Europe. Starting with Emperor Charlemagne about 1200 years ago, in these films you can follow some royal houses. For example the British French and Danish royal family. In addition, it shows how the Habsburg family had power in different areas of Europe. It is Matt Baker who made these and you can buy posters with different timelines.
