Oneupweb Reviews: Ducks In The Wind, Google Zeitgeist 2010 & 200 Years 4 Minutes

Today I wanted to share some videos from the past week that caught my eye. They are optimistic videos, which will not only inform you, but hopefully get your weekend off to a positive start.

Sometimes we hear a lot of negative stuff. People will say that the world is getting worse and worse all the time. They reminisce about the good old days, and how things were so much better off back then. They talk about the economy and how, today, no one has jobs… blah blah blah. I like what W. Clement  Stone said,

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.”

Take the first video below, for example. According to these statistics, over the past 200 years, things are heading in a positive direction!

Zeitgeist 2010: Year in Review

Google put together a video that sums up what viewers searched for in 2010. Google also introduced what they are calling Google’s 2010 Zeitgeist. This website allows you to see, in depth, what the world searched for based on the aggregation of billions of search queries people typed into Google. In the video below you, too, can relive the top events and moments from 2010 from around the globe through search, images and video.

Ducks Blown Off Their Feet By The Wind

To go along with the positive theme here, I wanted to show you the video below. Much like life’s challenges can sometimes blow you around from here to there—these little ducks also get one of those little surprises. But don’t worry. Like strong ducks, they pull themselves together and make it out standing tall (sort of tall).

Oneupweb Reviews: Thumbs Up!

Even though the duck video is kind of sad (they eventually make it, come on) we hope that these videos will help inspire the optimist in you. Have a fantastic weekend!
