    Woman Crochets Plastic Bags Into Sleeping Mats For The Homeless

    (applause) – All right, so most of y’all know, I’m really into things crafty. I just love crafts. Any kinda craft, I don’t have time for it, but I love it. Anyway, well, my next guest is doing something ingenious. She’s bringing together her love of crafting with her passion for kindness. She creates those mats by crocheting plastic bags, then she gives them to the homeless. It’s a durable and cost-effective way and also, renew, reuse, recycle. – [Rebecca] Yes, yes. – Way to go you. So say hello to Rebecca y’all. (audience cheers) Especially ’cause a lot of people, if you don’t get paper and you have plastic…

    The Garry Oak Learning Meadow at Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites

    Garry oak ecosystems are a really special ecosystem, and we like to call them an eco-cultural landscape. ‘Eco’ meaning ecological, and ‘cultural’ because of their longstanding significance to the Coast Salish First Nations. The Coast Salish First Nations coexisted with Garry oak ecosystems for thousands of years. We can think of them really as Coast Salish gardens. It’s a very unique ecosystem in Canada. There’s literally over 900 species of plants, so it’s a very biodiverse ecosystem. Unfortunately, here on Southern Vancouver Island there’s only 5% remaining of the original range of Garry oak ecosystems. And that has a lot to do with forestry practices, with conversion of meadow lands…

    One man’s personal bid to save and promote Abrolhos seabirds

    This is one of the most significant seabird breeding sites in the Indian Ocean. In fact it’s the top breeding site in the eastern Indian Ocean which is our western coast. Marine ecologist Chris Surman has spent the past 29 years studying Abrolhos seabirds – most of it self-funded. His work focuses on Pelsaert Island – a 12-kilometre-long low-lying isle home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds. We have 14 species nesting there on one island, spread over an area, but within that area we have some threatened species, for example the lesser noddy. Lesser noddies only nest on three islands – all of those islands are in the Houtman…

    Inside Chechen Prison Where Gay Men Say They Were Tortured (HBO)

    — In Chechnya, dozens of gay men have been detained, beaten, and tortured in a purge of the Republic’s LGBT population, according to human rights groups. Chechnya is a conservative Islamic country, and being gay is considered a scandal that brings shame on entire families. In fact, Chechen authorities deny that there are any gay people there at all. And if there are no gay people there, they say, there couldn’t possibly have been a crackdown. Hind Hassan traveled to Chechnya to see the evidence. — Ayub Kataev runs the Ministry for Internal Affairs in the Chechen town of Argun. He’s the warden of the town’s prison. Kataev and his…

    Inside the Arctic Military Base at the Center of U.S.-Russia Tensions | WSJ

    (dramatic music) – Decreased Arctic sea ice has resulted in increased human activity, both from Russian and from China. – We’re really on the front lines of what I would consider kind of a red dawn or Cold War type mindset. – The Russians are pushing and probing and seeing what they can achieve here. The U.S. is trying to figure out how best to defend against that sort of aggression. – The need for the ice breaker is both from a commercial side, from a search and rescue side, and from a military side. – 24/7, 365, we’re here with pilots and maintainers, ready to get these airplanes airborne…

    The true cost of the military-industrial complex.

    This video is sponsored by Brilliant. It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room. The single most polluting industry in the world. The military. Specifically, the U.S. military, because the U.S. war machine currently has a yearly budget of over $700 billion, which dwarfs the military spending of the next 8 countries combined in 2018. The U.S. military is a behemoth, and the environmental consequences of its massive size and global presence are equally immense. Indeed, if the American military was a country it would rank 47th, right in between Peru and Portugal, for highest global greenhouse gas emissions, and that’s only based on military fuel use. Despite…

    Why is Fjällräven so expensive?

    The history of Fjallraven begins a lot like most other outdoor apparel company origin stories: with a young adventurer unsatisfied with their gear. In this case, the adventurer is a twenty-something Swede named Ake Nordin, who was frustrated with the clunky wooden backpacking frames of an older generation. And so in 1960, nestled in a town in Sweden’s High Coast, Ake began to tinker with alternative designs, eventually creating what became his first aluminum framed backpack. Ake sold this first backpack and the Fjallraven brand was born. Soon after, outdoor enthusiasts exploded onto the scene in the 1970s, and as a result, Fjallraven became a mainstay in the Swedish outdoor…
