We have gone from 1 deadzone to over 500 in my lifetime. 
 
Ocean Deadzones

#Ocean  deadzones are spots in the sea where life no longer exists. They occur when massive fertilizer runoff (or other ocean crises) set in motion an oxygen-depriving chain of events leading to the death in one spot of fish, crabs and other sea creatures. In 1975, there was one documented deadzone. In 2014, there were 500+.

This #gif  is from the recent +Mission Blue documentary.

Good info/reminder on what to do during a quake, especially after the Napa, California quake on Sunday. I was happy to see what to do if you are in bed, stay there and cover head with pillow.
 
Earthquake Safety: Stand In A Doorway?

"I don’t like earthquakes, yet I live in quake country. It’s a paradox.

To mitigate my worry, I err on the side of preparedness. But this post is not to lecture you about creating an earthquake kit (although it’s not hard to do), it’s to let you know what to do the moment the shaking starts.

And it’s to tell you what not to do."
Hint: This idea made sense in the 19th century.

Please sign to stop Cayman islands from dredging up many beautiful and famous coral reef sites to build a crusie ship dock.
The Grand Cayman Islands have been known for the beauty that Mother Nature created, such as the coral reefs. Besides their beauty, coral reefs play important roles in the marine ecosystem, such as providing and protecting up to 25 percent of fish in the ocean, controlling the amount of carbon dioxide in the water, and protecting coasts from strong currents and waves by slowing them down. Although coral reefs are on a rapid decline owing to warmer...

Interesting. Looks like lab grown beef may become affordable alternative soon. If this solves the environmental issues of eating beef perhaps I'll be able to enjoy a beef burger again!
 
I would eat this.
Dutch Professor Mark Post, the scientist who made world's first laboratory grown beef burger believes so-called "cultured meat" could spell the end of traditional cattle farming within just a few decades. A year and a half ag...

Interesting idea. I like the ease of use, and that you don't have to carry something with you to test with, just wear the polish.
