Is the ocean broken? | World News | Scoop.it
An article entitled “The Ocean is Broken” is making waves on social media.

Via Kathy Dowsett
Olivia Maloney's insight:

This is so sad! I can't believe we are letting pollution kill our ocean. Not only that, we are also killing it ourselves. We are over-fishing, and we need to stop before more species go extinct. We need to realize what we are doing to the enviroment and make some changes so that we can makea the ocean get better.

iWatch is set to watch over your health

iWatch is set to watch over your health | World News | Scoop.it
It is believed the watch will be able to monitor both exercise and sleep, letting wearers track and analyse their every movement.
Olivia Maloney's insight:

Apple is really coming far in their devices. This watch, much smaller than a phone, can do a lot of the key things an iPhone can do. It can call people, so if you're out running or something, and don't want to bring your phone, you can just wear this watch. It can also monitor your health, so when you're exercising, it can monitor things like your heart rate. But most of all, I think it's really cool that it can monitor your sleep. It must have really advanced technology, which just amazes me. I'm excited to see how popular this gets when it is released.

Is the Pacific Ocean radioactive?
Olivia Maloney's insight:

The fact that the radiation from Japan might be coming this way scares me. The pacific ocean is home to so many beaches and so many people live in California! What will happen if the radiation gets there and it's terrible? Will the beaches have to close so no one can swim there anymore? I think it's a very good thing that scientists are starting to research and try to prevent it already though. It's better to be prepared than to have no idea what's coming. I hope there is some way to maybe prevent or at least prepare us all for what could be coming.

Olympic torch moves through Dagestan amid new threat

Olympic torch moves through Dagestan amid new threat | World News | Scoop.it
A runner carried the Olympic torch Monday through Makhachkala, capital of Dagestan -- a region embattled by Islamic insurgents.
Olivia Maloney's insight:

The olympics are going to be very interesting this year. With so many threats like this, many poeple will choose not to go, so it won't be nearly as crowded. I find it very sad that families of the olympians are choosing not to go and support them, because they are so nervous of the chance for there to be terrorist attacks. I hope Sochi has high security and all of the athletes are safe.

The 5 Worst Drinks In America | Foodio54 | World News | Scoop.it
Olivia Maloney's insight:

I had no idea some of these drinks were so bad for you! I knew they weren't great, but I didn't realize some of them were worse than a sandwich from McDonald's! Companies need to have a better ways for their customers to know what they're really consuming, other than just our guess. The only problem with that would be the risk of having less business. When I go to restaurants from now on I will pay more attention to this.

Olivia Maloney's insight:

This is crazy!!! Technogy has come so far! I wonder how long they've been working on this, because I would think that it would have taken a while to create this. If google can do this, I wonder what more advanced medical companies will be able to do in the future. Things like this will really help people, by making medical things easier.

Olivia Maloney's insight:

This is amazing! Dolphins can communicate with their babies, before they're even born! Imagine, if scientists study this, they could discover a way for humans to almost do the same. Although, human babies can't talk, so it wouldn't be very noticeable. I really wonder what other animals can do this that we are unaware of.

Olivia Maloney's insight:

This is unbelievable. A girl around my age survived for over nine hours in a rough, freezing ocean. No one else was with her, and she still clung to the wreckage until they came to save her. You would think that if there was a lone survior in an accident like this, it would be an adult, but it was a young teenage girl.

This is very interesting! I wonder how all of these species can live of off plastic. Maybe they don't live off of it, but they can eat it if they choose. This could be very good for some economic issues that we have, like global warming and pollution. Hopeflly they will find a way to have this help us!

The US advises airlines flying to Russia for the Winter Olympics that explosives hidden in toothpaste tubes could be smuggled on to planes.
Olivia Maloney's insight:

A toothpaste bomb? I don't think I've ever heard of so many threats going on about the olympics. If i have, I wasn't old enough to understand or remember. I think it's really interesting that this year everyone is so nervous about the olympics. There are an insane amount of threats, from all over, which makes some people hesitant about going. I would be too, but i think it's sad that people have to do things like this to scare people. If something does happen, it's going to be huge news, and everyone will be absolutely terrified.

Olivia Maloney's insight:

Google glass could be the next big invention in technology. Soon, they'll probab]ly become almost as popular as iPads, and they will keep advancing. With the persription part of it, people will be able to have them as their everyday glasses. The only problem google might have for now is the price. If these are too expensive, not many people are going to want to buy them. But I'm sure they'll become very popular within the next 10 years or so.

People may be next step in technology | World News | Scoop.it
It's likely the world in the not-so-distant future will be increasingly populated by computerized people like Amal Graafstra. The 37-year-old doesn't need a key or password to get into his car, home or computer.
Olivia Maloney's insight:

Is this what the future is going to be like? This man seems almost unhuman, with all of the abilities he has. Soon enough, these "smart tattoos" will be so popular that they could become very common amongst our generation when we get older. Things we do everey day, like unlocking the door, car or turning on the computer, he can do with a wave of his hands. This is very amazing, but it could possibly become way overused. I'm really interested to see where this goes in the future.

“Expired” food is good for you: A supermarket exec’s bold business gamble

“Expired” food is good for you: A supermarket exec’s bold business gamble | World News | Scoop.it
Trader Joe's' former president wants to sell you the food that other stores throw out. Will it work?
Olivia Maloney's insight:

Everyone is hesitant to eat foods after they say they've expired, but really, we are just being very careful about what we eat. Some people don't realize that the sell-by date is only when thw store has to sell it by. It's still good for at least a few more days. Even foods past the expiration date can still be good, depending on what it is. If we're wasting this much food, we need to realize that not this much food goes bad so quickly. Like it says in the article, we just need to convince people that the food is still worth eating.

Matt Stanger's curator insight, February 1, 4:01 PM

I don't see a problem with this. Having worked in the food section of the local Target I know about how much food gets thrown away because of a date on it even though it's still fine to eat. Even at home I don't pay attention to dates, most things will stay eatable if kept cold. And as for people who can't afford a lot of food, this is better then nothing. Can't tell people not to eat at all after all.

PISMO BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Authorities now say two people were aboard a plane that crashed in the ocean off of Central California.
Olivia Maloney's insight:

There have been so many plane crashes lately. It's very dangerous and for some reason, it keeps happening. So many people are getting injured and even killed, and it really makes me sad. I think pilots need to realize how often it's happening, and be very cautious.

Health of the Oceans Declining Fast, Risk of Mass Extinction

Health of the Oceans Declining Fast, Risk of Mass Extinction | World News | Scoop.it
The health of the world’s oceans is deteriorating even faster than had previously been thought, a report says.

 

A review from the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) warns that the oceans are facing multiple threats. They are being heated by climate change, turned slowly less alkaline by absorbing CO2, and suffering from overfishing and pollution.

 

The report warns that dead zones formed by fertiliser run-off are a problem. It says conditions are ripe for the sort of mass extinction event that has afflicted the oceans in the past.


Via Dr. Stefan Gruenwald
Olivia Maloney's insight:

This is so sad, how we didn't even realize how fast the ocean's health is declining. We should try to fix it, before it becomes out of control and starts to cause even bigger problems. If this causes a mass extinction, a lot of people could become very mad, and start protesting different labs and other places. I really hope that scientists can get this under contol before it's too late.
