You may want to enhance your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation by including a video but only need a certain portion of the clip. Luckily, you can trim a video directly in Microsoft PowerPoint. We’ll show you how.
Pretty much all Rube Goldberg machines are awesome, but this one takes the cake. It’s the largest in the world, as certified by Guinness World Records, and takes over four minutes to complete from beginning to end. You can watch it run in this gripping video.
The machine was created by Chevrolet Menlo in collaboration with Guan Jian and Wang Xiqi of Langfang, Hebei, China. It features a whopping 427 individual steps and took more than three months to painstakingly construct. See it in action, below:
Things are kicked off by a record player which winds up a string that, in turn, pulls a lever that then kicks a piece of metal into motion and activates the remaining 400-plus steps in a smooth yet fast-paced action. After watching it, we can’t believe it only took three months to set up or that things went so smoothly.
In the video, we saw ball bearings, marbles, and other spherical objects navigate dangerous pathways and trinkets like bowling pins, can openers, boomerangs, wheels, chess boards, rotary telephones, water bottles, playing cards, beer bottles, cans, mugs, fidget spinners, movie set clapboards, paper fans, and tongs.

is on the tidal wave of copyright claims it receives. The service has released its first copyright transparency report and it that of the more than 729 million claims made in the first half of the year, it overturned more than 2.2 million. Around 60 percent of disputed claims were resolved in favor of the uploader, versus just under 1.5 million in the claimant’s favor.
Over 99 percent (722.7 million) of all copyright claims between January and June emerged through , which automatically monitors YouTube for potential copyright issues. Only 0.5 percent of these were disputed.
Other copyright claims were submitted via webforms and the Copyright Match tool. YouTube says claims that are filed manually are twice as likely to be disputed than automated ones. That indicates creators are perhaps more reluctant to appeal against Content ID claims, even though most disputes are resolved in their favor.
Copyright owners can opt to have a video that’s deemed to violate their rights deleted, track viewership stats and/or it generates. Earlier this year, YouTube started offering creators a way to when they upload a video. The platform offers creators a way to that cause issues.
YouTubers have long criticized how the platform handles copyright claims, as notes. They can lose money or even face having their channel banned as a result of claims, many of which are evidently incorrect. While the report provides more insight into how big an issue copyright claims are, YouTube acknowledges “no system is perfect” and that it’s “impossible for matching technology to take into account complex legal considerations like fair use or fair dealing.”
