With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live.

Beautiful Fordite Stones Created from Layers of Automotive Paint are a By-Product of Old Car Factories
Old car factories had a harmful impact on the environment, releasing toxic chemicals into the air, land and water. But it wasn’t all ugly. Oddly enough, one of the by-products of car production was Fordite, also known as Detroit agate. The colorful layered objects take their name from agate stones for their visual resemblance. But instead of forming from microscopically crystallized silica over millions of years, Fordite was formed from layers of paint over several tens of years.

"Wave washing" refers to a hunting technique used by some Antarctic orcas. If they see a prey animal (such as a seal) on an ice floe, the orcas will move in a synchronized pattern to create waves. The waves knock the prey off the ice floe and into the water, allowing the orcas to get ahold of their meal. Talk about smart! I don’t know about you guys, but I am SO glad that orcas aren’t prone to attacking humans! (well, not so much in the wild, anyway)

Lori Marino: Leader of a Revolution in How We Perceive Animals | Innovators

"Person doesn’t mean human," Marino explains. "Human is the biological term that describes us as a species. Person, though, is about the kind of beings we are: sentient and conscious. That applies to most animals too. They are persons or should be legally."

Marino nods at a pet dog lying near our table. “He’s someone,” Marino says. “Not something. Someone. A person.”
