Synthetic Bacteria Could Turn Ocean Garbage into One Big Island

Synthetic Bacteria Could Turn Ocean Garbage into One Big Island | synthetic bacteria uses | Scoop.it

"Entrepreneurial students from University College London are striving to create tropical paradises made from ocean garbage. The aim of the project is to collect tiny pieces of plastic trash floating in the ocean, then stick them all together to create islands of artificial habitat.

“After months of planning, we are now rallying to construct a ‘plastic island’ using the principles of synthetic biology. In so doing we hope to provide a solution to one of the world’s major environmental problems – the North Pacific Garbage Patch,” the students write."

The benefits of seeing a “challenge” where others see a “threat.”

The benefits of seeing a “challenge” where others see a “threat.” | synthetic bacteria uses | Scoop.it

Are you ready to compete? Are you fully rested? Do you remember your notes? According to the biopsychosocial model of challenge and threat, these appraisals can lead you to construe the same situation in markedly different ways. If you have enough resources to deal with the situation, you are more likely to view it as a challenge; if you do not, you will perceive the situation as a threat.
