FINALLY!!! 
 
"Faiad discovered a cheap and plentiful catalyst called aluminisilicate that drastically reduces the cost of converting plastic waste into gases like methane and propane, which can be turned into ethanol, what some scientists are calling “biofuel” because the organic chemicals from plastic polymers she extracts, are the same chemicals extracted from vegetation to create ethanol biofuel."

Well done Azza!

Communist Chinese news has become the reality version of +The Onion . Who on this planet Earth still believes them? 

These dead fish will somehow make their way into food to feeding humans or other animals, because "everything is OK".

+Biomimicry Institute Nothing brings me more joy and pride to find out that the first place winner had the same solution as I did when I took the biomimicry course and was given the ballast water challenge! 

It made total sense to adjust buoyancy with adjusting volume, not mass, if mass was the problem to begin with!

It's time!!!
 
Chemists have discovered a cheap way to take CO2 from the air and create carbon nanofibers, which are a coveted manufacturing material. Taking a problem waste material and turning it into a valuable resource is a fantastic way to incentivize action. It remains to be seen if the process can be scaled up, but the developers are optimistic.

"To earn the Ranger tab, applicants must be able to complete 49 push-ups, 59 sit-ups, a five-mile run in 40 minutes, six chin-ups, a swimming test, a land navigation test, a 12-mile foot march in three hours, several obstacle courses, four days of military mountaineering, three parachute jumps, four air assaults on helicopters, multiple rubber boat movements and 27 days of mock combat patrols."

To have accomplished all these, yet still cannot applied to "the 75th Ranger Regiment, the elite Special Operations force" because it's still closed to women.
For the first time ever, two women have successfully completed the Army's elite Ranger school.

Hong Kong. Do something. Your are called the weakest link!
 
Hong Kong must stop being the weakest link in efforts to end the bloody ivory trade
- Elizabeth Quat says the alarming spread of elephant slaughter in Africa shows up the city's key role in keeping alive the ivory trade -
Alarming new evidence from Africa suggests that fresh areas for elephant poaching are emerging, in addition to the usual hot spots of Kenya, Tanzania and the western Congo basin. Horrific footage from Zambia of an elephant with its face sliced off, yet still breathing, arrived in my inbox recently. Viewing it redoubled my commitment to push for legislative change to phase out the ivory trade in Hong Kong.
What worries me is that the shocking footage was from a country not previously associated with elephant poaching. I have also heard that poachers are now targeting areas further away from the three main ivory trafficking ports to Asia - Mombasa, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar - closer to South Africa's Kruger National Park, a jewel of African wildlife.
... Sadly, 70 per cent of the global demand for ivory comes from China. Yet Hong Kong's penalties for ivory trafficking remain despairingly low. An ivory trafficker sitting on a tonne of raw tusks risks a six-month jail sentence if caught smuggling them through Hong Kong - or life imprisonment on the mainland if caught smuggling through Shanghai or Shenzhen. The choice is obvious.
Our city ranks fifth globally for the amount of illegal ivory seized. In order to dispel the perception among international criminal syndicates that Hong Kong is a soft touch; an easy transit hub for illegal wildlife products, our government must sharply increase the maximum penalties.
