Trapezoid Midsegment
This video explains how a midsegment of a trapezoid is the line segment connecting the midpoints of the two non-parallel sides of a trapezoid. A trapezoid midsegment is parallel to the set of parallel lines in a trapezoid and is equal to the average of the lengths of the bases. A trapezoid midsegment is related to a triangle midsegment given that both of their lengths are proportional to the bases. (2:51)

Introduction

This unit is about rights and rights claims, and the idea of implementing justice in the international sphere based on the concept of rights. It is agreed by most people that ‘rights are a good thing’ and in many respects they are. However, this unit deliberately takes a critical view.

USA vs USSR: The Cold War: Crash Course World History, #39
In which John Green teaches you about the Cold War, which was occasionally hot, but on average, it was cool. In the sense of its temperature. It was by no means cool, man.
