"This plant is only a demo location. According to Makai's website, a commercial-scale plant could prevent about 1.3 million barrels of oil from being burned and cut over 500,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

OTEC harnesses sunlight the ocean absorbs and uses the difference between the shallow, warm water and cold water of the deeper ocean to generate electricity. Using this method, right now, the $5 million facility can provide energy for about 120 homes." 

But that low number isn't the important part — it's who's paying attention.

"In an interview with Buzzfeed, Ritter explained that she's been underemployed since graduation and is looking for a way to erase her $40,000 of loan debt.

“I’m doing the exact same things and probably getting paid the exact same amount as people that dropped out halfway through freshman year, except I’m still $40,000 in debt and they’re, well, not," Ritter said."
Stephanie Ritter posted a sarcastic-yet-very-real eBay listing referring to her diploma as "brand new" and "Never been used to get a job".

"With the sea ice they depend on for hunting and habitat disappearing at the end of the Arctic melt season, thousands of walruses have once again hauled out onto the northwestern Alaskan shoreline near Point Lay, Alaska. The haul out was revealed by photographer Gary Braasch in photographs dated Aug. 23 and confirmed to Mashableby the U.S. Geological Survey.

Such haul out events, which can be dangerous for walruses since they can be trampled to death when gathered so tightly together and scarce amounts of food on land, have become another symbol of global warming's growing footprint in the Arctic."


In a clear sign of global warming, thousands of walruses have left their home on dwindling sea ice and hauled themselves onto the Alaskan coast.

"It’s easy to know when you’ve encountered a wifi hotspot in Cuba, if only because they’re the only places that feel even remotely like you’re walking through an American city. It’s here that Havana’s chaotic streets—full of neighbors chatting outside their homes, old men playing dominoes, young lovers enthralled with each others’ presence—turn into places where people stare at their screens, just like most of the world seems to do all day, every day. This, obviously, is where the internet lives."
"I've heard of the internet, but don't know what it's for."

I agree that owning negative thoughts is a problem. Positive thoughts, though, need to be owned and acted upon.

Would you take a drug to increase your cognitive abilities and enhance performance in the workplace?

"Modafinil is one of an arsenal of drugs, which includes Adderall, Ritalin, and Concerta, that are increasingly used “off-label" by college students and adults seeking greater productivity. Just 1.5 percent of adults aged 26 to 34 were taking ADHD medications in 2008, but that number had almost doubled to 2.8 percent in 2013, as FiveThirtyEight points out. Though these drugs treat real medical conditions—ADHD, in Adderall’s case; narcolepsy, in modafinil’s—many of the people who take them don’t have those conditions."
The drug modafinil was recently found to enhance cognition in healthy people. Should you take it to get a raise?

"The causes of veteran homelessness are complex. "I don't think anybody for sure knows the answer," Steve Berg, a vice president at the National Alliance to End Homelessness, toldMic. He and other groups cite the unique burdens soldiers with combat experience face while reintegrating into civilian life. 

In many cases, Berg said, returning veterans have a number of mental disabilities, like post-traumatic stress disorder, which can be compounded by the risk of substance abuse and lack of family support networks. "It is definitely the case that veterans have been overrepresented for a long time among the homeless population," he said.

Additionally, many veterans returned from tours of Iraq and Afghanistan as the U.S. was reeling from the effects of the Great Recession, with skills that were out of date or not applicable to the modern work environment."

"Researchers ought to be able to duplicate the findings of other scientists’ work, but a new study suggests that many published psychology results can't be recreated.

A huge, collaborative research project attempted to recreate 100 studies that were recently published in major psychology journals, and it found that only 39 of those studies' results could be replicated. That could mean that the studies were wrong in the first place, but researchers say that the findings tell more about the difficulty of designing a reproducible study than the accuracy of the studies themselves."
