Critical thinking, source checking and copyright

I haven’t written in a while and one of the reasons for that is because I’ve spent a lot of time checking for information about how to write an article and make videos without getting into any copyright problems. I’ve already made a video addressing this issue a while ago (see below for link). So I want to address briefly some of the challenges that have come up when trying to create content.

Warning labels on meat packages

I don’t think there is a person alive in this day in age that doesn’t know that smoking is dangerous. Even though we knew for decades that it was detrimental to our health, it had to take a tremendous amount of unnecessary deaths to finally get warning labels on cigarette packages. Today, tobacco advertising is illegal in Norway and has been for a while now. The packages themselves are also hidden away so you have to ask the cashier to get one for you, or get them out of a special kind of vending machine.

Meet Oliver – 8 months later

I cant believe it’s been 8 months since we adopted Oliver from the animal sanctuary. What a transformation he’s gone through!! He went from attacking me with his paw when I put down the bowl to eating the food off of my hand. I decided to make a video of how a normal day is for us now. Here it is 🙂

Getting comfy talking to my camera

One of the things that’s been fascinating me for a while now is how comfortable YouTubers are talking to their camera when they’re walking by themselves around tons of people.

Personally I do appreciate it when people take their cameras with them during hiking and then tell a story, so I figured today I’m going to take my camera with me for a walk and… talk to it 😮 Here is the result:

To oil or not to oil? That’s the question!

In the vegan community, there is a lot of debate whether we should be consuming oil at all. Some say it’s unhealthy for you and we should be getting our fats only from plants, like avocados, nuts and seeds. Others say oil protects against heart disease. I find the whole thing very confusing because on the one hand you have these videos from dr EsselstynKlaper and McDougall where they tell you that oil contributes to heart disease, breast cancer, obesity and so on. And on the other hand you have other videos from dr Theresa Ramsey and Everyday Health where they say it’s healthy for you!! Others claim some oils are good and others are bad. For a person who don’t have a degree in nutrition, like me, how the heck do we find out who is right?? Especially when they all seem to be having scientific evidence on their side!! I decided to do some research on this topic and here is what I found:
