This work is amazing. The order of Pteroidea includes pearl oysters and other pen shells that attach to a substrate by proteinaceous threads, byssus threads, which are also found in mussels (where they are commonly referred to as the "beard"). Byssus threads of mussels are pretty thick and short, so the long, fine byssus threads of these pen shells are dramatically different.
Silk is usually made from the cocoons spun by silkworms - but there is another, much rarer, cloth known as sea silk, or byssus, which comes from a clam.

yes, this.
(why does she have to continually prove every critique about white feminist privilege?) #facepalm #historicizedselfie #exoticism #banalcolonialism
The director in his response to criticism listed 2 African American crew? I can guarantee they weren't the ones who came up with the concept for the video. How would a Korean American director feel about a "period piece" about the romantic glory of American troops in Korea during a certain war?
I'll just add that the entire board of the African Parks Foundation of America is white. Fortunately at the foundation office in South Africa, Africans (including one of the founders) sit on the board. (Both the US and Netherlands (colonial past much?) branches have all white board members)
The video for her new song, "Wildest Dreams," conjures up a colonial-era Africa of magnificent landscapes, beautiful animals — and virtually no black Africans.

before trash, it was natural debris...
 
Sometimes the data viz artists work with other scientists’ data; sometimes they pursue projects of their own—like this awesome model of ocean currents. It’s actually a layering of two models, both of which show how trash in the ocean ends up in the five big pockets known as garbage patches.
NASA's Science Visualization Studio used two modeling methods to show how oceanic garbage patches form.

Maybe I need to start a "collection" of posts dedicated to #hella
And no, OED, stop pandering to the cakers from t*****o.
Long associated with the Bay Area, 'hella' has gained widespread use. But how was the word born?

Selecting Boys Over Girls Is A DISTURBING Trend In More And More Countries http://n.pr/1JhjtAj
With abortion, infanticide and neglect, parents are taking steps to ensure there are boys in the family. Only six countries had a skewed boy-girl ratio in 1995. Today the number is up to 21.

This opinion piece is much better than the one in the #NYTimes that inspired it. More on the problematic NYT piece later.
A curious personalization of science is underway — it's as if scientific issues are simply matters of opinion and not the product of a very thorough process, says commentator Marcelo Gleiser.

fantastic news! Congratulations to Sarah Rathbone and her business partner Sean Barrett. Providence Restaurant is an amazing catch! (and if you are in LA with $ to burn, go check it out) I'm a huge fan of restauranteurs knowing how and where their seafood comes from.
Prominent chefs are signing up for restaurant-supported fisheries: They commit to buying fresh-caught seafood, whatever the species, from local small fishermen. A pilot program launched in California.

This is also a more recent phenomenon...
Fields with more women, such as the social sciences are found to be more welcoming
