Mike Dawes originally arranged this piece for guitar (pulling in vocal melody, guitar, and drum accompaniment).  His original is beautiful, subtle, and balanced (Mike Dawes - Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye) - Solo Guitar), but I kinda like this rendition a bit more (a little more volume)...just my preference (admittedly, that could be due to it being undeveloped).

                    Algae Lamps  Invention
French biochemist and Shamengo pioneer Pierre Calleja has invented this impressive streetlight that is powered by algae which absorbs CO2 from the air. We have featured algae-powered lamps before but this one takes out 1 ton (!) of CO2 per year. This is as much CO2 as as a tree absorbs on average during its entire life.

Interesting map.  I would use it to argue the superiority of civil law jurisdictions as opposed to common law jurisdictions, but popularity is not the best indicator of that.

If useful for nothing else, at least it is entertaining is to see Louisiana sticking out like a sore thumb in the sea of red.  Check it out!
