  • 00:05:00 This video covers the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, who embarked on a voyage to find a new route to India in search of new sources of wealth. The Portuguese government had requested a geographic report on possible routes to India, and he explained his findings in this way: the voyage was now westward, but they were able to find provisions for the long journey. Aided by luck, Columbus also had access to a letter from the Italian merchant Lorenzo Berardi, which he translated into Latin and included in a book titled De Orbe Novo (On the New World) which is now preserved in the Colombian Library. Colón concluded that what Marco Polo had described as the islands of Cipango were in fact Japan, and that he only had heard of their existence. He successfully persuaded the Spanish monarchs, Fernando and Isabel, to fund his voyage with three small caravels and some supplies. When they arrived at the Caribbean islands of Hispaniola (now Haiti) and Cuba, Columbus renamed them San Salvador and Santa Maria, respectively, in honor of the Virgin Mary, after he sighted the first lights of Christmas Eve. He then headed north to explore what he called the "Mar de losagos," which is now known as the Gulf of Mexico.

  • 00:15:00 In this video, a documentary about Colón's discovery of America, it is explained that one of the reasons why Brazil is the only continent on which the language "rare" is spoken is because of the Spanish invasion and the two kingdoms being created, with Spain getting all of South America and Portugal getting all of North America. Colón's plan was to bring the natives to Europe as slaves, but the diseases he brought with him killed them all - even biology wasn't on the natives' side, and apart from the genocide caused by the conquerors, the diseases unknown to them also killed the colonists. In the end, the Columbian exchange irremediably homogenized the biological landscape worldwide and reduced the number of plant and animal species. The number of variably-adapted animal and plant species in any given place has steadily decreased since pre-Columbian times.
