On the morning of 26 April 1956, a former petrol station attendant called Malcom McLean stood beside a port terminal in New Jersey. He had just ditched his profitable trucking company to launch a revolutionary new way of shipping cargo. More than 100 dignitaries gathered to watch a converted Second World War tanker carrying 58 metal boxes set sail for Texas, making history along the way.

Geoff Riley's curator insight, Today, 3:04 AM
The world's largest ship has just sailed into the new London Gateway port. Shipping containers have been getting bigger for many years - but how far can the process go? Are the economies of scale that important? Or will sheer size eventually go over-board? Most ports do not have the crane capacity to fully utilise these super-tankers. This background article is excellent for understanding the container principle as an example of an internal economy of scale. Explore the Edith Maersk in 90 seconds: http://youtu.be/rRzuPMR_bXM

The decline of play: Peter Gray at TEDxNavesink - YouTube

The decline of play: Peter Gray at TEDxNavesink - YouTube | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Published on Jun 13, 2014
In this talk, Dr. Peter Gray compellingly brings attention to the reality that over the past 60 years in the United States there has been a gradual but, overall dramatic decline in children's freedom to play with other children, without adult direction. Over this same period, there has been a gradual but overall dramatic increase in anxiety, depression, feelings of helplessness, suicide, and narcissism in children and adolescents. Based on his own and others' research, Dr. Gray documents why free play is essential for children's healthy social and emotional development and outlines steps through which we can bring free play back to children's lives.
